    Pre-season 21/22 & season ahead views.

    That’s the 3rd game in a row Elliott has started in a midfield 3 and he looked pretty good there last night. He’s ahead of Ox and Jones in that advanced role. As is Naby, who has looked a player pre season. think the first month will have a Konate - Matip partnership as both VVD and Joe naturally looked rusty. no sign of Origi , even though about 4 kids came on. terrible 3rd goal from Nat, who got caught under the ball. In many ways, be great for him to leave this summer with the cult hero status fresh in our memories. Don’t do a Divock. Probably most interesting is Mo and Sadio playing like old fashioned outside rights and lefts, rather than inverted wingers. Think they’re playing a little more inside than previously. This means a Minamino could back up Bobby but still think we need a proper number 9 as plan B. Personally, I would go for Danny Ings despite his age….34 league goals in past two seasons to Mo’s and Kane’s 41.

    England are shit. Always have been, always will be. Italy will see them off comfortably on Sunday and panic over. Whenever they have faced a top class side in a tournament knock out round, they fail. Sunday will be the first time….Denmark are like Palace, a decent Prem team who are hard to beat but who are ultimately toothless.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    In the days before the internet/ mobile phones, I remember going out early on the Friday in the summer of 95 with my Blue Nose mate who thought they signed Collymore, claiming it was a turning point in them being more attractive than us. It was great waking him early the next morning on a bill comedown to a picture of Collymore in a red shirt! It all went downhill from there

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Grabara was often described as “over confident” and he would say he was ready for the first team. Don’t think this arrogance works with Jurgen, and like with Grujic and Wilson who believed they were ready and didn’t put in the yard yards in training, he was sent out to learn. Watching him berate the Huddersfield defence every time they conceded a goal, I’m not sure he did. maybe he will do a Galusci and come good eventually but football is littered with talent who thought they made it long before they did. Harvey Elliott worries me in this regard, he’s probably not ready so should stop his interviews saying he is. always use Steve Nicol spending 3 years in the reserves as the perfect example of developing into a proper Liverpool player.

    " you're close Jenkins" Nothing better than Bullet going on a tirade about the new nampy pampy geography teacher, Scruffy McGuffy.

    Just come back from London and a good night out with the Jocks. Funnily enough, non of the usual Ingerland cockney or Home Counties wankers were out tonight, maybe it was the rain. Or more likely 50 years of shitting themselves whenever a few guys in skirts turn up. Strange how those famous cockney Firms from the 80s would never travel to Hampden, but were always out in force in Luxembourg. Shithouses.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I think Howe's got 4% of their vote....of course we're talking about the same lads greeting Mike Walker at Bolton as the ultimate messiah. Muller refusing to leave Manchester Airport, Limpar, Amo, Samways, Heitenger etc was the funniest fucking up trying to be a big club, until now.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I’d be a worried if Eddie Howe takes over. Any Manager that can take a Club from the bottom of the football league to the Prem in 5 years and keeps them there for 5 years on crowds of 10,000, all the time playing attractive attacking football, is a little bit special. he gets the most of nearly every player he works with which is why he had a core of 7/8 players from League 2 still in his Prem side, he has an eye for young talent ( we were linked with the likes of Lewis Cook, Danjama, Brooks, Lerma, Lloyd Kelly etc), and he’ll be around for the long term so can build something. after 11 years, he eventually got burnt out as most Managers do, but he would be a smart gamble.

    Burnley (A) - Wednesday 19th May, 8:15pm

    Let’s never forget Carra is a fucking legend and we started singing “ we all dream of a team of Carraghers” in Taskin Square as the antidote to Stevie’s lack of loyalty. Carra telling Mourinho to fuck off being a case in point....we’re a historic big Club you cheap little upstart versus Stevie’s falling for the fake riches. Carra’s a sound lad, always has been and always will be, and the vendetta against him on here is sadly misplaced. Remember his old fella kicking off with the “ring of fire” song after Fulham away in 04.

    Burnley (A) - Wednesday 19th May, 8:15pm

    I’ve been trying to think who Nat Phillips reminds of in terms of maxing out all his qualities and them being vital for games at a massive stage of our season.....and it’s Joey Jones. Like Joey, Nat will never be the most accomplished player but his all round commitment and attitude earns him “ Oh Joey Joey” cult hero acclaim. These players are priceless and I can see him coming back in the Cup with someone like Bristol City one day and getting a huge ovation, a bit like Joey did in that infamous 4-3 match against Chelsea in 85.

    Fuck me, it's the FA Cup Final tomorrow!

    Looking forward to tuning in at 8.30am for live updates, a Question of Sport Special, to hear from the wives, and then live on the team coach as they leave their Hertfordshire Hotel. when I went to my first Final in 86, I really missed the build up - instead we were sharing a coach with a load of Blue Noses talking about a new era.

    Sadio Mane

    Bomb him out of the Club unless he apologises first thing....we’ve just had our best result at OT for 7 years and a vital result to potentially save our season and all he thinks about is his ego. Jota proved tonight that he is now our best left sided forward so unless Sadio bucks up his ideas and changes his egocentric attitude , thanks for everything but we’ll take £40-50m for him. personally, I think he should be reinvented as a number 9 with Bobby as our number 10, but he can’t show this petulance. best thing about tonight was Mo’s celebration...shows his love for the Club and maybe Sadio has always been the problem between them.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Not really, I think they’re all pinching themselves still..” this is not my beautiful wife, this is not my beautiful home , well...how did I get here”. good luck to them and congratulations.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    It’s a funny one with City - in many ways I quite like them. The massive underdog against “them” and definitely the good mancs who we have a lot in common - see the atmosphere of the 2016 Final versus the venom of 2003. of course we’ve had our mighty kick offs with them - the carnage after the 88 quarter final, all the windscreens cowardly being put through during the 84 reply, and of course when they cheekily came on The Kop a week before Paris ( and got away with it because 28000 were there that night). still, Pep is sound and if one Club deserved the £1 billion Lottery ticket, it is them.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I would put him up there with Ruddock, Dicks, Ince, Konchesky as one of those detestable characters who the Club should never have signed. His strutting, half-arsed arrogance whenever he comes on confirms this.
