Eds, what's the play with young Allan Rodriguez. What are the chances he gets his permit next season. Are the club wanting to fight to keep him?

Faithinworks

{Ed001's Note - the club would love to keep him, it is most likely he gets another loan move next season.}


1.) 19 Apr 2017 12:39:57
How good is he eds? Not seen much of him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he is highly rated by the club and in Germany.}


2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:00:11
i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

Leaving all the linguistics aside. if Firmino has crossed the line and used a racial slur then I hope he gets whatever punishment that deserves. absolutely no place in the game and life for it, and I truly hope it isn't true. again let the facts come out and hope for the best.

Faithinworks

1.) 06 Jan 2018 05:04:23
The facts are out though. A quick google search for the video shows that Firmino swore at Colgate in portuguese. Either Colgate misheard and we give him the benefit of the doubt, or he tried to lie in order to deflect the blame so the ref didn't book him.


2.) 06 Jan 2018 05:19:52
He called him son of a bitch in Portuguese. Stop all the racist rumours.


3.) 06 Jan 2018 06:09:49
You are just making this stuff up. It’s fairly clear there was no racism.


4.) 06 Jan 2018 07:24:15
He was just asking hol gate out for some pastries and pasta.


5.) 06 Jan 2018 07:32:56
How can it be racial if both of them are players of colour? All I know is that I saw "Puta" in there somewhere. I'm no expert, but from watching Latino gangster movies (Blood in Blood Out; Scarface, etc) and listening to Latino rap music back in the day (Big Pun, Fat Joe, Tony Touch, etc), it was definitely an insult. In Spanish, puto is the male form and puta is the female form (I always assumed it meant b*tch or ho {aka whore} or coward within the context of the dialog of the movie or what was being rapped about in the music) . I know he speaks Portuguese, but it probably has a similar meaning there too.

It was a heated moment and things were said at the height of emotion. Holgate deserved to be clocked right in the face, which obviously couldn't happen (Firmino looked like he wanted to though😁) . But yep, not much in it. Insults are thrown around on the field all the time in moments like this. Nothing new. So try not to read into too much into it.


6.) 06 Jan 2018 08:00:03
Eako, racism isn't just between whites and non whites. I have no idea what was said and I hope it's just a storm in a tea cup but there's no reason Firmino couldn't have been racist.


7.) 06 Jan 2018 08:33:26
Everton fan here. Just popped over to see Liverpool fans view on the incident.
Firstly I have no idea for certain what was said (no one here does so the 'facts' aren't out) . (Disregarding the push which was dangerous and yes I understand why Firmino wanted to knock him out)

What seems certain to me from his reaction and videos I've seen is that Holgate thought something racist was said (I'd like to think he misheard) .

But the original post said that IF something racist was said then Firmino should be punished. And you guys are disagreeing with that?

Furthermore criticising Holgate reaction trivialises racism in a huge way and very disappointing to see.


8.) 06 Jan 2018 08:48:58
Don't defer away from the holgate assault. holgate should be hit with a ban. everyone seems to of forgotten about launching a fellow professional into the stand.

{Ed025's Note - launching him now is it ben, im awaiting your attempted murder charge next mate..talk about overreaction...jeeze..


9.) 06 Jan 2018 08:52:56
I'm Black, and I certainly would want anyone to be sanctioned if they used racist language. In the same way, if a person used the race card to get out of a bad situation, they should receive the same sanction as the person they blamed.


10.) 06 Jan 2018 08:55:16
I feel something racist was said then personally I feel the referee would have taken action against Firmino there and then so for me it’ll just be a few swear words in what was a heated situation. Holgate should’ve got a yellow card and that’s it.


11.) 06 Jan 2018 08:58:23
Disregarding the push.
No, you can't disregard the push then try and hang Firmino out to dry, Holgate is a professional footballer who pushed a fellow pro into the stands at speed. That could have caused a serious injury. You don't get to 'disregard that' because you think Firmino has said something in response to the push.
I'm not for one moment condoning Firmino if he's used racist language, whatever language Firmino used was probably out of order, but it was in response to dangerous foul play by your man.

{Ed025's Note - silly by holgate and a yellow card appropriate JT, dont try and make more out of it than what it was though mate..your not judge benny..


12.) 06 Jan 2018 09:42:20
Thank you toffee, one of a few speaking sense. Howw bout we just let the investigation and facts come out. All y'll embarrassing yourselves by minimizing what potentially could be a very serious incident. I hope for the best obviously but it speaks volumes that so many here are quick to dismiss the case before the facts have even been heard. No one wants to taint firmino here, but equally we shouldn't dismiss it out of hand. saybing things like 'race card' is pure deflection and doesn't give due respect to the issue.

Also all ya'll professional lip readers failed to recognize that holgaate doesn't react to when firmino says puta. Firmino says something else out of view of the camera that holgate reacts to. unless he has slow reactions like he did to stop vvd fpr the goal. but anyways let's hope its nothing too serious.


13.) 06 Jan 2018 09:39:43
JTRed91 - we can disregard the push because that's not what this thread is about. This thread is about the words exchanged between Holgate and Firmino.

If you want to talk about the push then start a thread about the push (which I think was inexcusable and if he'd been sent off I don't think he could've complained too much)


14.) 06 Jan 2018 10:47:56
Aside from the first line about racism about the same colour this is one of the best posts I’ve ever read!


15.) 06 Jan 2018 13:35:05
Toffee You said yourself you don’t know what was said just like the scaremongering original poster so why start a thread on it? What we do know is some thug decided assault would be his game and was shocked when someone threw some insults back . Booo hooo. What a coward he is.


16.) 06 Jan 2018 16:10:36
Fair enough Toffee mate. I skimmed through the top and misunderstood.


 

 

03 Jan 2018 18:00:43
Here's a novel idea, let's not blow all the coutinho money on a fruitless attempt to sign a like for like replacement. we have coutinho's replacement already in Mane. Coutinho's best games have been at left wing in a 4-3-3 or one of the attacking mids in a 4-2-2-2 which we rarely play. But he has been avg as one of the 3 CMs. If we are thinking we need to replace coutinho as a CM then we already have that guy coming. keita is a true #8 and far better value than coutinho in that position imo. He has everything, creativity, defense, energy, he is excellent. But we have to wait until summer, unless there is a change. I'd like to see the coutinho money used to bring balance to the squad and adding quality depth to our attacking group.

A player like ndidi to free up hendo, can, ox, lallana, gini to play box to box would be fantastic imo and then someone to support the attacming group. I have no idea who, but that would be my approach!

Faithinworks

1.) 03 Jan 2018 18:28:25
Your giving me a headache with the money talk, and as for the rest of that post.


WHAT?


2.) 03 Jan 2018 18:37:37
If you’re dividing the team into a defending group and an attacking group then Coutinho would be in the latter anyway. I believe we need somebody to replace Coutinho the attacker and a more defensive midfielder like you say though.
You name Hendo, Can, Ox, Lallana and Gini as midfielders and I would largely agree but that leaves Firmino, Mane, Salah, Solanke, Sturridge, Ings and Woodburn and in my opinion only 2 of those are decent out wide.


3.) 03 Jan 2018 18:48:31
Ye so read the post barnseybob. let's add quality depth to that attacking group and bring in more suited player for CM role. Keita is one already coming who can do everything as a #8 and suits klopp way more than coutinho does imo. Altho klopp obviously thought differently as he would still play coutinho there occasionally! But from what i could see, this season so far and all of last season coutinho was best as part of the attacking group. Not separating attacking from defense just giving them a name. The front 3 if you like.


4.) 03 Jan 2018 18:50:54
Savvy, barely mentioned money mate. Just in context of the situation, but not going to grt into 30mil for him and 45 for him ewuals coutinho lol nah won't do that.
What's your take on the rest of my post? Disagree? Put it out there for discussion man!


5.) 03 Jan 2018 20:06:49
Faithinworks, have to disagree mate, Coutinho is at his most effective when he’s basically allowed to roam free just behind the front 3, the problem this year is, as part of the midfield he’s lost the appetite to track back and get stuck in, which in previous seasons he’s been deceptively good at. In the games where we struggle to break teams down he has consistently provided a little bit of magic (a burst of pace, a wondergoal, a killer pass etc. ) to unlock an opposition defence and whilst Mane possesses some of those attributes I would argue that passing and vision is not really one (or 2) of them. The Mane of last year is absolutely suited to playing wider, either bursting down the flanks and getting the ball in the box, or cutting inside and having a pop. We need someone else who can do what Coutinho does, and I personally would really like to see Brandt, I think he’s made for the Premiership, can dribble/ run at people, good pace, can be physical, great vision (passing perhaps at this stage inconsistent), and a good workrate, in my opinion at 21 has the potential to be even better even than Coutinho.


6.) 03 Jan 2018 20:34:17
Fair bruce, but coutinho barely played in centre mid last season. He was our left winger, and yes tracked back well from that position. When he has been effective in midfield it has been when the system was changed so we could accomodate him as a focal point of the midfield with two CMs protecting him. But by far our most natural way to play under klopp is with 3 dynamic CMs. 2 go box to box and one a bit deeper. Coutinho hasn't suited the box to box role, he just doesn't have the engine or physique for it. But yea as an attacking midfielder when we change the set-up for him, absolutely he is great. We just very rarely do that.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 18:43:49
Eds, genuinely interested in how agreements between clubs work prior to the window arriving. Klopp talking about bad now. so presuming everything is above board, do clubs sign any kind of written agreement between them before the official paperwork is all submitted on Jan 1st? Or is it like a handshake / pinky promise?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - clubs will agree a move subject to certain criteria, injury, work permit, international clearance etc.. Sometimes it goes wrong - Vin Nistelrooy for example. Numerous January transfers have already been agreed - I could name perhaps a dozen or more off the top of my head. I would expect all to go ahead, so the RvN situation is rare.}


1.) 29 Dec 2017 06:08:47
Cheers for that ed2! Mo.


2.) 29 Dec 2017 12:18:24
ED2 anyway you could let us in on what January Transfers have already been agreed?

{Ed002's Note - Like van Dijk moving to Liverpool? There are many, many thers such as Diego Costa to Atletico, Diego Rossi to LA, Brooks Lennon to RSL, Anthony Ujah to Mainz, Sandro Wagner from Hoffenheim to Bayern Munich, Carlos Vela to LA, Vietto will go on loan from Atletico Madrid to Sporting Lisbon, Mario Gomez will leave Wolfburg to Stuttgart, Lucas Lima turned down interest from England and will join Palmeiras. Sevilla are splashing out a significant fee for Arana to join as left back in January etc., etc..}


 

 

26 Dec 2017 20:24:48
heya eds, doesn't need a long response just genuinely wondering whether coutinho would still harbour a desire to leave / try and force a transfer if interest from Barcelona disappears?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he wants to be playing at the highest level and challenging for titles every year.}


1.) 26 Dec 2017 20:42:59
cheers ed2 :)
in that case, let's hope then that we can prove we can do that for him over the next few months!

{Ed002's Note - I don’t think you get it.}


2.) 26 Dec 2017 20:49:31
depends what you mean ed2. I'm just going off what you said and as a fan hoping that we could still sway him to believe that we can be that club for him.

Or are you saying that it is written in stone that coutinho doesn't believe Liverpool will be at the highest level challenging for titles every year and he wants to go because of it?

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho wants to leave to play at the highest level and be challenging for honours every year. Liverpool can’t offer that. He handed in a transfer request and his family and agent have travelled to Boston to try and get him away from the club. He approached Barcelona and was speaking with international team mates about leaving 18 months ago. Take the hint.}


3.) 26 Dec 2017 20:49:31

{Ed002's Note - he approached another side to see if they would buy him, his agent and family have visited Boston to try and get him out, he spoke of leaving to international team mates 18 months ago and has handed in a transfer to Liverpool. You should get it by now.}


4.) 26 Dec 2017 21:16:10
It’s funny how a better salary isn’t mentioned or living in a Mediterranean climate. It’s either the draw of London’s limelight or a warmer feel. Just ask Sanchez?

Couthino could move to Celic and challenge for honours but one feels his family would be a tad. Chilly.

{Ed002's Note - it is nothing to do with that.}


5.) 26 Dec 2017 21:23:47
I gave my post a thumbs down to thumbs down your replay ed2 lol. take the joke :)

hey look I fully get what you're saying, but as a fan, and I'm sure many other liverpool fans would have similar feelings, we'd hope to convince our best players to stay and help us be a club at the highest level challenging for titles every year. whilst he is still here and is performing, I just hope that he may change his mind! If he goes then ok we move on and go again! is there something wrong with that?

{Ed002's Note - He doesn’t want to play for Liverpool. He wants to move elsewhere. Perhaps put your efforts in to trying to persuade Salah to stay?}


6.) 26 Dec 2017 21:32:40
nah there nothing I can do to make coutinho or salah to stay. just support them while they're with us and hope that those with influence do their jobs well to keep building us up as a club at the highest level competing for titles every year! would love that!?

hey ed2 this is related to a question I asked weeks ago that I don't think you quite understood what I was asking. The theme of what you are saying about the world's best players wanting to play at the highest level etc. we seem to get near enough to that level and then boom, torres leaves, suarez leaves, coutinho MIGHT leave :p. what does liverpool need to do next to get to that level?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not at that level at all. Right now the only English side that might be is Manchester City.}


7.) 26 Dec 2017 21:33:15
Couthino might win the “ two team league “ in Spain and the tin pot Copa del Rey Ed002 but when it comes to major honours in Europe, the English teams are back.

City are better than Barcelona in my opinion and if Couts wants to play and challenge at the highest level then he should move to City.

The Premier league is now way ahead of La Liga.

So it’s all about salary an climate, he and is family are Brazilian after all.

{Ed002's Note - you have no idea. He is not moving for the money. When was the last time Manchester City won the Champions League? Real Madrid and Barcelona have won four of the last 6 and it was 5 years ago since an English side won. Typical ignorant xenophobic post.}


8.) 26 Dec 2017 21:44:08
absolutely, and man city funded their way to that position. I feel like you're saying that Liverpool should be resigned to being a club where they are. So is mega-money simply the only way to get to where city is? to steal an american sports' phrase, being outside of a big market like London and manchester, would Liverpool have to overpay their stars to compete?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has spent vast sums of money over the years. All of this whining that you are all so hard done by is as embarrassing as it always is.}


9.) 26 Dec 2017 21:56:57
ah come on mate, no need to jump to assumptions about my tone on a computer screen. I was genuinely enjoying the conversation with you about this. was hoping to get some more insight from you in terms of what the club can actually do to be at the highest level but you've just repeated that we're not at the highest level. leads me to think that you don't believe we can get there.
Which is something I asked about a few weeks ago, that clubs like us are consigned to being in the tier below and that's just the way it will be.


10.) 26 Dec 2017 22:01:40
I personnally believe LFC won't sell Pipco even in the summer unless Barça pays the due price. Everyone was saying he will be off in the summer but he's still there. And by 1st February we will again see him in a LFC shirt. And Coutinho isn't the only player who wants out, we saw what happenned with De Gea and how he behaved to go to RM, he was no angel and even MU kept him for the sake of the team. Hazard also wants to go to RM. Finally, most of the players today are driven by money (see Neymar) .

{Ed002's Note - What “due process” is that?}


11.) 26 Dec 2017 22:14:30
120 million.

{Ed002's Note - Not even a currency - this is why we don’t talk about money.}


12.) 26 Dec 2017 22:21:38
Liverpool is in the UK 120 million pounds is that not the due price.


13.) 26 Dec 2017 23:14:02
Faith, I am sure Ed02 only deals in fact or the present. Off the top of my head I can never remember any speculation and he/ she only seems to expand out side of that for their own opinion.

For my sins, I am the patient one! Only a few times around the late 80s did we repeatedly break transfer records I think! (Beardsley, Saunders) Even when we paid 35 million for Carroll, this was on the back of a record fee for Torres (Like with Beardsley, Barnes and Houghton with the Rush sale)

I would like to answer your question about a return to an elite team. For which we are close. To take the next step, we need to continue with the recruitment and unfortunately selling.


Whilst the like of Pip and Mo are likely moving on we will be handsomely rewarded financially. Its what we do with that money that is important and if we find players to come in and make the same impact that the above and others have made.

Of the 1st team players we buy in the future maybe we can also find some who love the club so much that they fore go the chance to win trophies.

Perhaps in the short term we can win a few cups and continue to make further steps in the CL.

However the key for success will be likes of Gomez, TAA, AOC, Big Dom and Henderson making progress and then maybe another 3 or 4 being integrated from the academy in the next 2 or 3 years.

To me this is a base to build from so as you can see IMO we are still a bit away from that base.

Klopp is the best we can get and while stats don't win leagues they are looking like they are going the right way, apart from the very obvious aberrations.


14.) 26 Dec 2017 23:41:52
Cou will move most likely in the summer, end of story.


15.) 27 Dec 2017 00:42:06
Guys, he wants to leave. Let’s just accept it. Let’s not treat this as football manager where we receive the transfer fees either. Let’s not mention money- that’s for sky to blow out of proportion. It’s not about loyalty or being a fan, footballers don’t think like that. It’s about playing at the best level and England is quite far from that level. Let’s hope the club scouts find a suitable replacement- that’s all we should be thinking.


16.) 27 Dec 2017 05:16:34
The team will always be more important than the sum of its parts - Coutinho is leaving, that's fine, we need to find a suitable replacement and keep building the team, improving the quality and aim to challenge for more top honours - long term I'd imagine it better not to have the disruption.

The real key will be who we replace him with - our track record of replacing quality assets leaving has been mixed to say the least: We got Suarez after Torres and, if you ignore all of his dreadful behaviour, was a good player. We got Aquilani to replace Xabi Alonso which was, to be honest, the beginning of the end for Rafa. Since the departures of both Agger and Carragher we have failed to acquire a decent CB (Matip, Lovren, Klavan, et al not quite doing the business) .
Who we replace Coutinho with will be crucial in determining how much of a loss he ends up being. He is a fantastic player who can change games on his day - we need to replace him with genuine quality, there is not really a like-for-like replacement, but it needs to be a well thought out strategy to adjust to him leaving - poor recruitment in this regard will see us take a step back, and if that happens perhaps more quality assets leaving.


17.) 27 Dec 2017 08:42:13
I expect a similar deal to Suarez, agree a deal in Jan for a move in the summer, in return he gives 100%.


18.) 26 Dec 2017 23:24:48
U mean "due price" Ed2? I don't know but I don't need to. I only believe that as long as the club doesn't receive an acceptable offer from their POV, they won't sell. As u know better than me Ed, no club can block transfers nowdays and still keep the player happy so they can only hope for the best compensation. LFC isn't the best suitable club for Pipco rigt now (better weather, more money, more success in Spain. ) . But, what if we win the champions league this year (like we did in 2005)?

I agree with your various notes ED abt the club wasting money on weak players. But I guess, it's not easy to attract the best players without the spending power like MU, MC or Chelsea so we always had to go with 2nd, 3rd or 4th choices. We just can't compete on the salary level (we have the 5th highest payroll costs, right? ) . I know that u will point out that City and Chelsea r more successful nowdays (which is true) but they built their success with the help of outragiuosly rich owners to begin with. That's why the Liverpool job is the most difficult for any manager as while not being amongst the most attractive clubs, the fans expect to win trophies every year.

Sorry for spelling mistakes guys, was in a hurry.

{Ed002's Note - Right, "due price". And the club can certainly block a transfer - and have done so in the summer with Coutinho and will try to again. The price is not a matter for here. Whining about Chelsea having a new owner 15 years ago and him investing money in the club is the stock "how badly done by" Liverpool answer. The Liverpool manager's job being "the hardest" is laughable. Why bring in salaries? Liverpool were third highest overall in the in Premier League in 16/17 and are paying Coutinho £200k per week. Move on. Liverpool are not so hard done by.}


19.) 27 Dec 2017 00:16:58
Ed2, when faith said what do Liverpool need to get to the next level to be at the 'highest level' that Coutinho wants to be in, we are in the champions league and with his help we can be in it again next season. But the thing that separates the best is that there are those that are happy to compete and those who want to flat out win. Now Couts might want to flat out win and that's pretty obvious with his requests, but what to Liverpool need to do to as faith said reach the likes of Real, Barcelona etc, or are you saying that level is unattainable due to the gap between the top teams and Liverpool? Because outside of Liverpool, I'm not sure many teams look at us in the same way they look at the top ones. Does that make sense?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to be challenging regular to win things - they are not. They need to act professionally and gain the respect of other clubs - they don't. They need to be involved with the "elite" sides that are in the strongest position in making decisions - they aren't and won't be any time soon.}


20.) 27 Dec 2017 05:15:28
Ed 002.
Interesting answer to say the least.

Players have always moved abroad, even when LFC was challenging at the highest level, Keegan, rush to name a couple, so it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

Barcelona is an attractive proposition not just for footballing terms but from a cultural point of view too. His family travelling to Boston and grovelling with FSG shows they want to move away.

I used to live with a girl from Barcelona and travelled there 5/ 6 times a year, it’s wonderful City with gorgeous fishing villages 20mins North, along the Costa Brava coast line - Vilssar De Mar, orenge De Mar. So I totally get the pull of Catalonia

But for footballing reasons. yes the two Spanish clubs have had it there way for the last 5 years but it goes in cycles Ed 002, I remember all the players wanted to move to Italy back in the early 90”s - that’s where the money was. but for me the pendulum is swinging, both RM and Barcelona are behind PSG and City imo and I can see either one of those clubs winnng the CL .

I think Couts is a great little player but he’s no Xavi or Iniesta. And let’s face it, what would you be rather doing on New Years Eve? Eating fresh barnacles and 12 grapes to the sound of the 12 dongs on NYE, or Pie and chips ( slightly exaggerated) in the North West of the UK?

{Ed002's Note - You are obsessed with money and location - it is simply nonsense as I have explained - How old was Coutinho in the early 1990s when players were moving to Ital? You don't seem to have any slight grasp of the situation whatsoever.}


21.) 27 Dec 2017 06:42:14
Well said Ed002. Many LFC fans fail to grasp that elite players will never stay at LFC for too long unless we challenge for league titles and the UCL on a regular basis. Top players want Barcelona or REal because they are the two most successful clubs in Europe in the past 5 seasons.


22.) 27 Dec 2017 10:19:42
Nothing to do with failing to grasp elite players want to move abroad or even to a top club within the PL. Everyone talks as if it’s only just started to happen within the last 5-10 years.

Liverpool has always had players move, even when we were top of our game, I quote again, Rushey to Juve in 1986.

{Ed002's Note - An example from more than 30 years ago - great job. Don't post anymore on this subject - you are wasting everyones time.}


23.) 27 Dec 2017 11:01:24
Sorry Ed002.

But it shows that players have always wanted to move on, especially abroad! 30 years ago, we were playing at the highest level, challenging on all fronts and winning.

So whilst, as you correctly say, we are not at those dizzy heights any more, not dining at the top table, giving Couthino the challenge he desires, winning the CL, players always have and always will move on.

Very few players that aren’t transient.

{Ed002's Note - I am not questioning the fact that players are transient employees of clubs. I have explained that repeatedly. Your rediculous obsession is that Coutinho is moving so he can live in Spain and get a higher wages as the reason is absolute nonsense.}

I really want Can to stay. I think he and keita are the near future engine room of our midfield and could be for multiple years. Hendo, lallana and Milner all slowing down.

I agree but I don't see it happening, I think he's as good as gone already mate.

A midfield of Can, Keita and Coutinho would be epic.
Ain't happening though.

Great in theory but Can and Coutinho would have to get rid of the inconsistency first.

clubs loose player and buys new one all the time. Can and cout are all but gone. let's focus on getting an upgrade on them than rather cringing and holding on them. Anyway I don't see anything special in Can, blows too hot and cold for me.

Not convinced by Can as 1 good game every 5.

Coutinho was crap in midfield. Addressing the balance there would be an upgrade.

Why do words from years ago warrant investigation and a blatant push of an opponent into the stands warrants nothing?

Well if Mr. boring relaxed a bit and stopped flying towards shadows maybe we'd have had a more settled fribal 15.

Yes MK, when news for keita broke my first thought was that Can and Keita could be our midfield engine for years. I do hope that remains the case. Can has everything in his locker, just needs to keep building and deveeloping.

Altho you'd hope any pro learns in the same aeason, or the next game. In reality it takes longer especially for younger players. Guys like milnet who still at hiss age go diving 100mph to press only to get beaten by a slight turn of the hips, just grates me to pieces!

Noski, the OP just gave you a reason why to sing a song. You seem more entitled and will give if you receive. Sounds like a customer. Good stuff.

To me we had some tactical naievity in the middle of the park at the end there. Even if we had makelele there, he'd be by himself cos the other 2 CMs or off out and about. Just a slight switch for me and adjust thr midfield system so their starting po.
