  1. Well, compared to now, yes. 2nd place finish, Europe Cup final & domestic semi final. A very impressive away record. You have to be the meekest of simpletons to not identify the deepened decline since Ronaldo joined and the impact that a 36 year old who cannot keep possession, cannot run off the ball sustainably has on a team (particularly the teams defence) who already were operated almost casually with a slow and porous midfield. Whether that person is you, I dare not speculate.
  2. Signing Ronaldo has completely smashed the team up. Every other player pulled out of position or playing roles they’re not suited to Quite amusing.

    Yes you tried very hard, much appreciated. Very unfortunate: it is a superb idea and there are seemingly enough people happy to go around the houses on endless monotonous variations of "Best LFC Left Back Of All Time" etc. but to each their own.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    Funny thing that when you take a cog out of systems-thinking football, it doesn't quite perform so well elsewhere in a different context. A few titans like Lewandowski aside, I'm not sure many players at all have left Klopp teams and thrived elsewhere. A lot of these players should be sending very healthy Christmas presents to Klopp for creating the conditions in which they can eventually command such huge wages. That doesn't diminish how important Wijnaldum or an equivalent skill-set is for us.

    Fantasy Manager Comp

    Turn by turn draft picking legendary players from this list here (Messi, Maradonna, Zidane, Maldini etc etc): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OT6LYdLCVesQwTzWEZBKTrSxY10L8Oj7ih2CFAEV7Mg/edit#gid=1270497836 Once everyone has picked their full squad (I think we have 14 playing at the moment .. 20 is the ideal .. not sure when Bruce wants to kick it off), you then select a formation and Bruce essentially loads all the choices into Football Manager. He then simulates the season on game by game basis and posts results over a couple of weeks to find winners of League/Cup etc. Basically a forum Football Manager game, with the added nostalgic boon of of selecting your players from legends whose stats are specially ported into the game. You need to devote a bit of time to the Draft side of it then the rest takes care of itself.

    Fantasy Manager Comp

    Football Manager simulation populated by all-time legends & cult hero players, played by fellow forumers exclusively & ran complementarily & needing only an hour or two of your time to participate and choose your team. If you've ever even barely played FM you need your heads tested for skipping.

    Probably would need 20 teams or else it will not be very strategic in the draft as everyone's teams would be so closely rated to each other in every area of the pitch with everyone automatically getting highest rated players even at bottom of their draft picks (could be some teams taking 2 as suggested above)

    Usyk doesn't stand a chance against Fury.

    Wilder is a warrior. Proven all the doubters wrong. He was never in Fury's league, but who is.

    Most important question - who has the better stats, Maradona or Messi?

  12. Should have offered him when Abidal was at the helm. Would have paid 50 mil.

    Geordie Arabia

    Quite remarkable how the Arabic world have essentially taken over professional football (domestic / international via Qatari WC) in the space of just over a decade.

    In. Was the first invite thread posted on main FF? May be an idea to pick up any stragglers

    Sounds good - yes, a legends game would be fun
