Was reading banter post about Barcelona players they could offer and Im so schocked about some of the guys saying things about rakitic as if he is joe allen lol. don't know what a good midfielder is for you guys but Rakitic is definitely one. Guy was Sevilla captain, won Europa league with them scored 15 from midfield. scored in champions league final and won it with Barcelona. Which one of our players done it? Do you really think our player are better then others just bcos they play for liverpool.

"Do you really think our player are better then others just bcos they play for liverpool. "

I think our midfielders are better than Rakitic because they are better than Rakitic. Not because they play for Liverpool.

29 Jul 2017 21:57:09
Sorry, all our midfielders are better than Rakitic? Everyone is entitled to an opinion I guess.

29 Jul 2017 22:07:36
Why should we take someone's offcasts.

29 Jul 2017 22:16:26
number of throphies our midfielders won is 1 . WHEN they win something we can talk about it. we don't have winners in our team and that is a reality, he is regular at barcelona and winning throphies, Henderson won carling cup :) we all need a reallity check just bcos he isn't pacey doesn't mean he is a bad midfielder. that is problem with english clubs Sigurdson or Gini would be a better midfielder for you than Rakitic and Rakitic is better in 8 out of 10 things from those two IMHO. Rakitic would be a nice option to have especially in CL but he is out of our reach.

29 Jul 2017 22:30:30
Not having this he's won loads of trophies so he must be better than ours nonsense O'Shea and brown and Neville have all won loads.

{Ed025's Note - gary neville was a very good player jezza..

29 Jul 2017 22:35:59
Ed025, the bitters are in full force, of course Neville wasn't that good a player and don't kid yourselves, Rakitic is far better than any of your midfielders, especially Captain Henderson.

{Ed025's Note - jordan is very good at pretending to be a good player scholes, full of energy and always busy doing nothing, its a fine art mate..

29 Jul 2017 22:40:08
Rakatic was amazing 2 years ago but it seems he is now passed his best, although I would still take him for the right price.

29 Jul 2017 22:57:00
I agree with mandzo on this one. I support our lads, we have great potential but someone of Rakitic class would walk into our team (not that this will happen) . This guy has won a CL, 2 Spanish titles, a Europa league and probably a couple more. He also plays for Barcelona and not too long ago scored a belter against Real Madrid and after watching him that night, I didn't think his legs had gone. Anyway, this isn't a Rakitic love in, just that maybe we should wait to put our lads into his bracket until they have achieved something, win a few trophies or maybe just turn up away to Leicester on a cold Wednesday night in February.

29 Jul 2017 22:58:06
It's not about being bitter. Rakitic has lost his pace. He isn't better than what we've got.

29 Jul 2017 23:10:13
He doesn't need pace mate, it's all up upstairs. Do you mean he gets overrun in midfield? Can't keep up? Just that a lot of our lads don't have blistering pace.

29 Jul 2017 23:23:42
Manzo, what are those 10 things rakitic is better than any of ours in?

29 Jul 2017 23:21:16
Is there an Ed out there who thinks we rate our players too highly? For instance, pretty much saying Rakitic wouldn't get into our midfield as it stands now? Maybe I need to drop this, don't know what my obsession is with Rakitic!

29 Jul 2017 23:30:07
Our midfield for all their pace get turned over time and time again.

29 Jul 2017 23:56:50
i agree rakitic is a good player but no way i would swap him with couts.

29 Jul 2017 23:58:51
Pace Like molby? You don't pace when your streets ahead upstairs.

30 Jul 2017 00:15:39
This site is embarrassing sometimes. We miss out on the next big midfield prodigy so we should accept a player on the downturn should Coutinho go?

Rakitic is a top, top player, but his best years are behind him and the physicality of the BPL is a completely different game to La Liga, especially in the center of the field.

30 Jul 2017 00:14:37
Rakitic is a quality player.

30 Jul 2017 00:20:58
You can't have been watching him last two seasons, he's looked awful.

30 Jul 2017 00:44:35
The number of trophies won argument is ridiculous, I'm not saying Rakitic is a bad player but Anderson won 4 league titles and a Champions League, does that make him a better player than Gerrard?

30 Jul 2017 03:58:21
Nothing wrong with Rakitic's ability as he is still a quality player. The issue is he lacks the athleticism and legs to play as a B2B midfielder in Klopp's system. Would be the wrong signing imo and I just don't want anyone from that Barcelona team bar MSN.

{Ed001's Note - he is not the player you remember from a couple of seasons ago. His decline, particularly last season, is alarming. Not sure why he has suddenly lost form, but it did look like his legs had gone, though 29 seems a bit early for that.}

30 Jul 2017 00:09:18
Ed25, you are a tosser, if you don't think that Henderson is a good player. Really gone down in my estimation.

{Ed025's Note - its all about opinions in the end, hes vastly overrated for me and for a number of liverpool supporters who i know...have you ever considered that you may be the tosser MN?..

30 Jul 2017 07:41:21
I get the trophies argument, maybe that's a poor example. Just my opinion that he is still a better plan than Can, Henderson, Lallana, Gruijic and Gini, even if his legs have gone! I know it's a bit embarrassing sometimes, YouTube highlights all that's good but just watch a bit from last season, serious skills. Anyway, I think I need to get over it now! Also, calling Ed25 a tosser is not on, Toffee or not, I tend to agree with a lot of what he/ she says (not the Henderson bit though) .

{Ed001's Note - honestly he is not a good player any more, he is not half the player he once was. A couple of seasons ago I would have loved the idea of Rakitic, but he is awful now. He offers nothing. As for more no, it is clear he is the tosser, even if Ed025's not got a clue about Hendo, which he hasn't, it does not make him a tosser. He just doesn't know about quality footballers, being an Everton fan he has not seen any......}

30 Jul 2017 08:24:35
Haha fair enough Ed, this is why this site is so good, everyone has an opinion and apart from certain tosses, everyone expresses them in a mature manner most of the time anyway. And yes, sorry Ed25, but you would love a player like Henderson, go on, admit it, you would.

{Ed025's Note - we have better in gana aj who along with keita and kante is one of the best around, he is also not a decapitated bantam who runs aimlessly without a scooby of what he wants to achieve like someone i could mention..but we all wear tinted specs at times i suppose mate and thats fair enough..

30 Jul 2017 16:29:39
All I remember about Gana is him being left on his ar*se by Coutinho when he bent it into the top corner.

{Ed025's Note - couts can do that to any player dilakh but its how you perform over the full season that counts, 1x gana = 10 hendo,s in my book as he actually knows what he is doing and is a footballer who is very athletic, unlike jordan who is an athlete pretending to be a footballer mate..
