So with the fekir deal seemingly slowing down a little bit for what ever reason, would lfc now have other members of staff trying to negotiate for other players? A keeper for example. Or would they just concentrate on trying to get fekir signed?

I only ask as for me conceding less goals should be the aim as opposed to adding more firepower be it a new cb or keeper.

So wasting so much time just so Lyon can play hard ball seems futile. They either want the money or the player, they can’t have both. So surely if we carry on with our other transfers it will happen eventually anyway right?


{Ed025's Note - there will be a list of alternatives ashy..

1.) 09 Jun 2018 14:27:36
The club is a publicly listed company, and strict stock market rules suggest they are not allowed to announce transfers until the window officially opens this weekend.

(daily mirror report)

2.) 09 Jun 2018 14:33:11
Publicly listed companies announce their reports/ earnings guidance and any major items outside of trading hours all the time so you can be assured this is nonsense.

3.) 09 Jun 2018 14:53:07
Sorry Ed’s I wasn’t meaning alternatives for fekir, I was wondering if we are actively trying to strengthen other positions or are off just throwing everything at getting fekir signed?
Do we have other members of staff working on other transfers or will that all come after fekir?

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that I am afraid.}

4.) 09 Jun 2018 18:53:50
Gibbs, it is not nonsense. What Corkycat is saying is correct based on the guidelines of the French Stock Exchange as well as the date the TW opens in France which is today, I gather.



31 Aug 2017 18:47:49
Sakho gone.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:58:07
Yup. Seems to be for 26million. Good business.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 19:01:47
26m to palace.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:08:25
Not good business selling the best cb youve got, not getting a replacement and then going into the season with only 3 senior cbs which include lovern and klavan.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 19:12:26
Needs to be reinvested into a cb.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 19:16:15
But sahko wouldn't be picked anyway. It's 26mil or we have a player (whose wages we are paying) who is not going to get a game no matter what. I keep saying it "7 clean sheets in last 9 premiership matches" that is not a team that can't defend. We will be fine as we are, and stronger with vvd. Sahko is irrelevant. That said I think he is a decent cb.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 19:17:24
He isn't the vest CB and people need to remember he was part of the poor displays.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 19:16:30
If you think Sakho is our best centre back you know diddly squat. His behaviour off the pitch has been unprofessional and his play on the pitch erratic to say the least. We have four centre backs not three.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 19:18:55
The man is an idiot.
Having a guy like that in the dressing room is not worth the aggro.
Klopp is manager just back him why dontya.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 19:21:19
Pakred, you need to see it that he was nothing more than a burden on our wage bill. Its been a long time since Klipperty made it very clear he wouldn't play for Liverpool again under any circumstances so in no way could he be counted as one of our CB never mind our best. I agree he has skill and sad it couldn't be worked out but that ship sailed many many months ago.
For the best I think as clearly he has attitude and behavioural issues and JK has a good squad atmosphere and team spirit at the moment and we don't need what he brought, so I agree with JK and as much as I rate him as a CB glad to finally see the back of him.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 19:23:02
And he fell foul of Klopp and others at the club with his disrespectful and disruptive behaviour.
Well rid.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 19:31:27
He was head and shoulders above them all. Wasn't afraid of a challenge and could head the ball properly.

Massive shame how his LFC career panned out.

12.) 31 Aug 2017 19:33:15
Good stuff. Another £26 mill to balance the books. Let's hope this keeps the freekicks and corners from blasting into the back of the net!

13.) 31 Aug 2017 19:49:17
Getting a replacement for a player who has not played for us in how long? Klopp wants Van Dijk or a top quality cb if one were available who would improve our starting 11 considerably. If he can't get him we can't just buy someone no better than lovren. For instance the desperation has made people on here think Johnny Evans should be bought. Maybe the supposed interest of other top teams is making some think maybe he is world class but had we made him a target at the start of the window there would have been an uproar.

14.) 31 Aug 2017 20:09:46
'he can head the ball properly'

i really disagree, his heading is poor. he wins the ball bt barely directs or gets power into it.

15.) 31 Aug 2017 20:13:37
I really don't understand the failure to see that Sakho played in the bad patches of games, isn't noticeably better than Matip who is the best CB and has a disruptive attitude that undermines the manager and the squad. What of any of that makes it a bad deal to sell a player that is those things and other teams aren't queuing up to buy. If he was that good City would be chasing him and not Evans. They aren't and two teams from the relegation end of the table are the ones who want him.

16.) 31 Aug 2017 20:23:07
After gomez lovren matip klavan I can't even think of a cb in u23s who could step up, so many games up til january bit of a gamble this I must say!

17.) 31 Aug 2017 20:30:44
I agree Gallstones, only 1 can think of is Can, if we are desperate.

We really are risking it with such a thin backline.

18.) 31 Aug 2017 20:31:17


19.) 31 Aug 2017 20:54:41
Pakred how is he our best CB?
A few last ditch tackles resulting from his own poor positioning does not a good defender make.

How we found a team willing to spend more than what we paid for him is a mystery to me and shows how inflated the market is!

Good luck to him but won't be missed.

20.) 31 Aug 2017 21:02:39
I wouldn't be surprised if liverpool pulled a strange one out of the hat this evening in terms of a cb. Not getting vvd but we will in the end. January or next year. Unless he goes to arsenal or chelsea which wouldn't totally surprise me. I think 4 cbs, with one being quite young and another not proving that great, we are a little thin there. An injury and a suspension and we are in trouble. I reckon we'll grab someone on a year loan perhaps or someone old but good ish. To fill the numbers.

We've signed some very good players this year and I've thought all summer that keeping pipco could be our biggest success. It looks like it's happening. Let's forget about any possible disruption to the squad and remember how good the lad is and feel pleased he will be on our team this season.

21.) 31 Aug 2017 21:15:29
Hailstones, rennie yous do know we only play with 2 cbs. As Eds have said many times if we were to sign a cb it would more thand likely mean one was going out. Likely meaning the end of gomez chances. He may have even been allowed to go on loan had he not showed Klopp signs that he is going to be a good option as backup across the back 4.

22.) 31 Aug 2017 21:30:29
Superred, how is keeping a player who has said that he doesn't want to be selected or picked in the champions league squad a positive thing?

23.) 31 Aug 2017 21:37:48
Kloppshop I understand what you are saying about 2 at the back but think back to last season. Matip is injury prone, Gomez is unproven. We are an injury or 2 away from no one else left to support.
On the plus side our front 3 is awesome and will terrorise teams all season.

24.) 01 Sep 2017 01:09:34
Rennie. True but isn't every team?
I'm not sure they are injury prone or just got a few unfortunate knocks last year. 4 cbs should be enough. It's the quality of these that is our only problem.

25.) 01 Sep 2017 07:58:20
Sakho was unprofessional, but coutinho has been unprofessional too, to an even worse extent you could argue, but yet one will be given a second chance, and the other not even allowed near the squad and now sold, doesn't look great setting double standards like that no matter who it is.

26.) 01 Sep 2017 14:44:56
worminator one of those is a world class player and the other is a decent but not great EPL player who has acted like a tool in the past as well. IF (and it is still a big IF) Coutinho gets a second chance that might be the difference. Having said that, considering how firm Klopp was over Sakho and that statements on here by reliable people (e. g. Eds) suggest that Klopp has had enough of him, then I wouldn't be surprised if Coutinho is ostracised as well. If the club could make the bids it did, without selling Coutinho, then the money isn't at issue, so they can probably afford to take a stance and say he's going to rot until he does something major to make up for it, or rot generally, or be sold when it suits the club, etc. Right now, if the window closes tonight and he isn't in Spain, then the stronger position would seem to lie more with the club no matter how good the player is. Personally I'm glad the club stood by the manager on Sakho. Can you imagine the club backing any player if they'd done that to Dalglish or Paisley?



22 Jun 2017 23:41:53
Looks like we've landed a good one, already got himself a lucrative sponsorship deal with quorn and beat the cube.

Welcome to Liverpool Mo Farah!




15 Oct 2016 22:02:36
Had there been any news on lallana? Is he going to win the fitness race for Monday night?


1.) 16 Oct 2016 14:52:59
not looking likely.



29 Jun 2014 12:00:14
Hello eds,

2 things if like to bring up. First one is sterling and Real Madrid, you told us that real have watched sterling and are interested but do you think that sterling would want to go and would we allow it?

Secondly I tried to use the search function to search for sterling but as my phone didn't load the page fast enough, I accidentally clicked on one of the ads over the search bar. Anyway when I did the link took me to the scumswebsite, not sure if you are aware or if there is anything you can do about ads but wouldn't like to think that they are profiting in any way from your site.

Cheers eds


{Ed001's Note - not yet and not yet.
I take it you mean the S*n? If so could you tell me which link? Because one thing I have made clear to ALL the advertisers is that there can be no links whatsoever to that filthy rag on our sites. All of them agreed to that, so they have no excuse. I want to know who it is I have to tear a few strips off and make sure that can never happen again.}

1.) Fair play ed what a response

{Ed001's Note - I would rather give up than give that piece of filth any advertising.}

2.) I'm not sure which one it was to be honest ed because like I said I pressed it by mistake. Yes I was referring to the s*n mate, it took me to s*n motors. Il have a look later on to see if I can find it. It was one of the 5 images right above the search bar mate if that helps.

{Ed001's Note - I will figure it out, then they will be told to either remove any ads for the rag on our sites or we won't run any of their ads any longer.}

3.) No probs mate, sorry if it seems like I'm creating work for you eds just thought it might be of interest to you that's all.

{Ed001's Note - you did the right thing mate, I don't want anything to do with them at all. I really appreciate you letting me know.}

Just got to say I’m loving that third strip! Was going to go and buy the little lad his first strip tomorrow, night not be having the red one now.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 09:56:59
Cool Ash. It is the shirt of European contenders.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 10:00:24
First kit has to be red 😲 otherwise he'll grow up saying he supports 'The Purples'

3.) 12 Jul 2018 10:01:46
You beat me to it!
Yeah it's an absolute pearler that kit.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 10:19:54
It's the grey kit MKS.
Overtones of that late 80s version.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 10:40:29
You mean to say the purple kit is our 2nd kit? Dear God. I thought the grey one would be the away kit 😂 what were NB thinking!

6.) 12 Jul 2018 11:19:02
think my first kit was the yellow version with crown paints on it around 84/ 85. it was the only thing i would allow myself to go to PE in, loved it!

7.) 12 Jul 2018 11:57:48
My first ever football shirt was a Chelsea shirt my mum got me from the Charity Shop. I still sick a little in my throat when I see the photos of 5 year old me, completely clueless at what I was being made to wear. Dark days. Mum is still in the doghouse for that. It'll be in my speech at her funeral as the only time she let me down.

First shirt I asked for was when I was about 12 years old and I got the 06/ 07 home kit with Gerrard on the back. I got the third kit from that year with my own name on the back too. The one that was white but had a bottle green splash down one side. Loved that kit.

Since then I just get a home kit every 3 years (sod paying £80 a season to indulge sponsors), and every black kit they produce.

8.) 12 Jul 2018 12:21:25
The hideous the kit the more chances to win the league. that purple one will get us some points, bleeding the eyes of our opponents.

9.) 12 Jul 2018 12:21:42
I get every home kit every year now since 2006 the year my first son was born. Probably wear once only and then cover in plastic. They will be keepsakes for my boys. No names or numbers. Sometimes I look back through. We've had some beauties and some not so great, but I love them all.

10.) 12 Jul 2018 12:40:59
That is a really nice idea Preso 👍.

11.) 12 Jul 2018 13:12:10
MK I just got on your profile by accident. Is that you, your missus and your dog? I thought you were older than that, quite a bit older.

12.) 12 Jul 2018 14:15:27
Former dog now, but yeah that is a picture of me and my Mrs when I was 22 and she was 18. I'm 24 now and a bit more bald 😂.



26 Jun 2018 21:02:47
So apparently Lyon have met with Jose mourinho over the transfer of fekir.
Man united where fekirs first choice anyway right? So they really should be in the driving seat to close that deal.
If it’s true about mourinho negotiating with Lyon then all the stuff about not negotiating until after the World Cup was a lie, is it just that they had enough of dealing with us?


1.) 26 Jun 2018 21:10:39
Ive stopped listening to Aluas and rarely did anyway. Best thing is just to wait til after WC and the player can decide where he wants.

Judging by France, s performNces it won't be long before they’re out.

2.) 26 Jun 2018 21:40:44
Things you need to remember about Aulas, he likes to troll, he’s hard to negotiate with and he’s good at what he does. You’d want him running your club!

3.) 26 Jun 2018 22:20:14
FranklyMrShankly, exactly, the man is a businessman and a damn good one it seems, good on him, he's not a daft fella.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 00:09:22
Mourinho In the driving seat?
Is Fekir in the boot?

5.) 27 Jun 2018 00:42:06
Do buses have boots?

6.) 27 Jun 2018 02:54:41
If tbe club pulled out of the deal originally because of concerns over his long term fitness as was widely reported then I'm happy for Utd to take the driving seat.

7.) 27 Jun 2018 07:19:16
i couldn't care less about Fekir at this point.

8.) 27 Jun 2018 09:59:16
'Ere now Mr Klopp, if you don't want him I've got a buyer named Jose lined up waiting to make an offer so don't you take too long making yous mind up!

It's almost like you guys have never got a second hand car or rented a flat.



08 May 2018 21:38:52
So ed001,

How are you feeling about the final? Given buvacs exit and a few shaky results as of late I think it’s planted a seed of doubt in a few supporters minds.
I have to admit after city I would of taken anyone in the final but but since then I’ve started to have the occasional worry. The match is 2 weeks away and I can’t stop thinking about it already!


{Ed001's Note - sorry mate, I don't do anything like predictions, which this is dangerously near to. One game at a time.}

1.) 08 May 2018 21:57:47
We're going to win it mate, I'm so confident on it. I can understand people been nervous and all, I will be on the day but I still think we'll do them, we'll be well up for it and will go all out, they will attack us, we'll counter and beat them. We've showed all season how dangerous going forward we can be, their defence won't be able to cope with our attack. What's better? Navas in goal. When you have Firmino, Salah and Mane firing at you, there's no way out.

Buvac leaving I don't think will have anything to do with any of it, it goes on the players imo and how much they want it and my word, they want this a lot we've seen this throughout the whole campaign. Real Madrid is a big named club so people are naturally worried about it but in the end of the day it's just football, and I believe we have the qualities to knock them off their perch.

I can't wait! they fancy a go against us? bring them on.

2.) 08 May 2018 22:16:41
Hope your right mate.
Whilst we are on the subject, anyone know if anfield will be having the big screen up for the final?

3.) 09 May 2018 01:45:34
Agree Salah. My only thought is that our counter may not be the feature we'd hope for. What I mean is, do Real actually play a decent possession game any more? I think we'll have a good amount of the ball. My hope is that we score first and they have to have a go. We saw against City what happens then.

4.) 09 May 2018 07:51:17
They've been ripped apart a few times this champions league season. Tottenham and Juve spring to mind. It's 50/ 50.

5.) 09 May 2018 08:33:28
If mo is confident so am i.

6.) 09 May 2018 12:49:00
If it was first 11 against first 11 I think we'd beat them but with injuries and maybe having to use the bench I think they'll beat us.
They have good talent to come off the bench who can change games where as I don't think we have anyone like that. Worst if we decide to bring Klavan on to hold onto a lead we will then be in bigger trouble as we've seen so often.
Again just my opinion.



14 Sep 2017 21:17:25
So what's everyones view on the collection that is supposed to be taken at the burnley game to fly a "klopp out" banner over anfield at the next home game?

Pathetic if you ask me, hopefully they get told where to shove their collection by anyone they approach.


{Ed025's Note - i would be very surprised if that happened ashy, and if it did then you dont deserve him mate..

1.) 14 Sep 2017 21:24:21
Modern day trash supporters if that is the case.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely max..

2.) 14 Sep 2017 21:26:55
There is no collection happening! Where did you see / hear this?

3.) 14 Sep 2017 21:26:59
Attention seeking, sad acts if true!
Instead there should be a collection for a banner with "Support Your Own Team You Ungrateful, uneducated buffoons! " I'd use harsher words but it probably wouldn't be posted lol.

{Ed025's Note - your right it wouldn,t kev..

4.) 14 Sep 2017 21:28:34
Ignore mate, ain't going to happen.

5.) 14 Sep 2017 21:31:39
I'm chipping in for a a koeman in banner ed.

{Ed025's Note - love it benny..

6.) 14 Sep 2017 21:32:25
I hope they make the mistake of approaching us 🤕.

7.) 14 Sep 2017 21:38:08
Let me be honest here, even when Hodgson was in charge I did not go to the extent of belittling our club like some our 'fans' did.

There was no doubt that Hodgson was going to be sent packing. Nature takes it's course.

H and G were a disease that made the club rotten but fact is, GREEDY Moores was the reason this club went into the dark ages.

The burning of American flags outside of Anfield was just pitiful to watch.

8.) 14 Sep 2017 21:40:25
That's got to be bull

9.) 14 Sep 2017 21:55:23
I want klopp to stay. Yes he needs to get his defence sorted I think he would if he just stopped rotating but fans saying klopp out need to think who would we realistically replace him with?!

10.) 14 Sep 2017 21:57:51
I suspect said collection will struggle to get £25 for a small quadcopter drone, much less enough to hire an actual aircraft.

11.) 14 Sep 2017 22:00:53
It's a joke. Surely it's a joke.

Where in the champions league. That was his target. We haven't lost in the champions league yet.

12.) 14 Sep 2017 22:07:11
I'd imagine this story has been started by rival fans looking for a bite. I'll be at the game on Saturday if anyone asks me for money for a Klopp out banner they'll get a mouthful of obscenities from me.

13.) 14 Sep 2017 22:09:26
I'd love to know where the OP got this information from, it's got to be twitter.

14.) 14 Sep 2017 22:17:19
Can we start a collection to fund a new back 4 in January instead.

15.) 14 Sep 2017 22:19:53
the banner there flying klopp out stands for---Keep--Liverpool--Opinions--Pleasant--Please---Occasionally--Utter--Trash. 😁.

16.) 14 Sep 2017 22:21:04
It does look like its come from a group on twitter called kloppout.
Theyve put mock up of the banner on there too, saying they wanna fly it over anfield next month.
Like you guys say its probably bull coming from twitter but some people are dicks so u never know.

17.) 15 Sep 2017 00:04:41
We could chip in to have another plane following towing a banner saying 'Of This World'🤓.

18.) 15 Sep 2017 00:21:03
Carra tweeted a screenshot of Phil Neviles page, showing a screenshot of Koemans Twitter page,

Apparently Koeman answers questions directly after each game.

I was as rough as I think could be,

Neville was complaining that it wasn't fair

Carra's comment was
'Simply Lovely'

19.) 15 Sep 2017 01:24:40
I'd chip in for a couple of new CBs. However, flying banners telling the owners to get rid of Klopp is downright pathetic. I hope nothing of the sort happens at Anfield any time soon. We need the 3 points against Burnley, not the fans pulling off some nonsense that will bring the morale of Klopp and his team down.

20.) 15 Sep 2017 09:35:37
If anything like that ever happened, those who funded it should be exposed for the traitors they are and hounded out of Anfield any time we have a home game. Has Klopp made mistakes? Yes. Is he learning from them and trying to fix them? Yes as he wanted VVD and to a lesser extent Koulibaly at CB. He also wanted Keita in midfield to strengthen there. So that shows that he is trying to fix things BUT some people still can't/ refuse to see that cos they are only interested in being right even if that means our manager fails. Disgusting lot, really.

Has he improved us from the dross BR left us with where we were stuck in neutral? ABSOLUTELY and it will be a process where there will be highs and lows cos like it or not, LFC are not dominant anymore both domestically and in Europe and we don't have 300m to drop on players every season. We have CL footie for only the 2nd time in almost a decade. That in itself should tell the whole story. Up the Pool and in Klopp I trust.

{Ed025's Note - good post that bingo..

21.) 15 Sep 2017 09:45:56
Well said Ed025 and everyone. YNWA.

22.) 15 Sep 2017 09:46:53
How can people not see this is a load of mancs trying to goad us?

23.) 15 Sep 2017 12:08:21
There is no situation where those plane messages aren't pathetic.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

24.) 15 Sep 2017 15:40:02
I heard wenger is flying the plane.

What a load of rubbish. We have lost ONE game. That's it. One game all season.



01 Sep 2017 06:52:11
Eds, i know its generally harder to do business in january and many clubs are reluctant to sell so i am asking hypothetically.
If for example we where to keep coutinho until january and the club maintened its interest in lemar, woupd we be allowed to speak to monaco about lemar leading up to the window so they can asses their options and help move business along.
I guess by january we will have moved on from lemar anyway but this could relate to any player as coutinho is going to be unhappy and after seeing him in a new light over the past few weeks wouldn't be surprised if he acted like a pissy little child.


{Ed001's Note - it depends on the club seeking permission etc but of course clubs can get deals done and completed outside of the window even. It is purely that registration cannot be transferred outside of a transfer window.}

1.) 01 Sep 2017 07:07:12
You reckon we will look to do replace phil in jan or wait til summer? A season is a long long time to keep a sulking player.

{Ed001's Note - the search is always ongoing for better players to come in mate.}

2.) 01 Sep 2017 09:05:20
On that subject Ed001, do you think we need to directly replace Coutinho, have we already got the necessary players there or is it more a case of a higher level of squad ability is still needed? Also what is your view of where the squad is now, do you think it is better now than end of last season, even without Coutinho? Sorry for all the questions but you seem to have a level headed approach compared to some on here with agendas about players, owners and managers they want to play out.

{Ed001's Note - it would be a nice option to have, someone with his ability, in some games. I don't see it as essential to remain competitive though. We have improved and given the team more attacking options, whether he stays or leaves. We now have a genuine threat from the fullback positions, with a pair of fullbacks that can play good crosses and we have someone who can deliver quality delivery from a corner in TAA. We do look in a much better position than the start of last season.}

Thanks Ed001 and thanks to all of you for the huge amount of patience you've shown during the last week or two, must have been very trying times.

{Ed001's Note - it certainly was extremely trying at times! Thank you.}

This has to be the cringiest thread I’ve ever seen on this site. Making multiply accounts to drum up support for yourself, that’s embarrassing.

Sorry Ed’s I wasn’t meaning alternatives for fekir, I was wondering if we are actively trying to strengthen other positions or are off just throwing everything at getting fekir signed?
Do we have other members of staff working on other transfers or will that all come after fekir?


{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that I am afraid.}

Don’t tease people ed lol
Even when we have made deadline day deals when was the last time it went so late in the day with no news and we managed to get somebody signed up?
Remember the yarmolenko fiasco lol.


{Ed001's Note - Ayre's finest hour that was.}

Have they not already had enough money for keita? We already have him signed it would just be throwing money away to pay more.

Ok let me put it this way then, if this season comes down to the game against city (unlikely that it could be pinned on one game I know) does everyone think we will beat city playing the way we are right now?
Because last season I was adamant we could beat anyone, this year I’m not as sure.
I know the numbers are there for all to see but as the Ed’s always remind people statistics can be made to look how people want them to look.
And I understand we look good sitting pretty in second 2 points behind city and everyone is saying we should be happy about it.
Will everyone still be happy at the end if we finish on our highest ever points total and it still isn’t enough?
97 points last year still wasn’t enough to catch city, but everyone will deem the season a success “well look we finished on 97 points, every other season we would of won the league”
But it’s not won the league has it? That’s what matters at the end of the day, nobody looks back and remembers when we finished with a decent amount of points.
That season when we had Torres on fire and finished second, was that successful?

Yes but please consider the method of the goals we have scored this year. Please don’t assume I’m unhappy with the team, but last year we got the ball and teams where just unable to defend against us, we were ruthless. Running at defences, cutting teams open, creating space for other players when we got the ball. A lot of our goals this year have come from a scrappy mistake in the opposition box, we can’t rely on that all the time especially against the better clubs.

I don’t think it’s an obsession mate, it’s more looking for a weakness to allow us to close the gap.
We are much stronger and much more steady than last year albeit nowhere near as potent in the final third.
But that’s part of the worry, if teams aren’t attacking city we need to start back with the free flowing attacking footy and still keep clean sheets.
We could close the gap if we beat city but if we aren’t scoring that will be tough.
Other teams aren’t worried about attacking us at the minute but we have the defence to deal with that, but we will drop points at some point. City I’m not so sure about dropping points as teams are terrified of them, I wouldn’t e surprises if they beat last years points total.
Its not so much being pessimistic about or performances, it’s more about the other sides showing no spine against them.
I’ve heard pundits on talk sport literally saying nobody will catch city now, pundits on bt sport saying give them the trophy now.
I’ve never seen that before.

I genuinely don’t think the wonder dog sparky twitter account gives hints to any transfers.
I think it’s just ed002’s way of teasing people. Also it probably keeps people from hounding him all the time whilst they try to decipher clues that aren’t there.
