Obviously this will sound like bitterness right now but it's how I've always felt about City and Chelsea, and now Newcastle.

At what point do you stop lauding a team and their "achievements" and talking about them as this amazing team and one of the greatest of all time without even a single acknowledgment of the money? By "you" I am referring mainly to the football media. Fans of other clubs already call it out but given the lack of impartiality of rival fans, it's just dismissed as bitterness, jealousy, etc. Why can't a football journalist, reporter, pundit just be honest and come out with something like "City are a brilliant team made up of outstanding individuals under a manager who is one of the best in the business at taking a collection of the world's best players and forming them into a team, but we have to acknowledge that the amount of money that City have at their disposal means that it long since ceased to be a level playing field. When you have limitless funds, can sign players for any fee you want and pay whatever salaries you want, when it doesn't matter if your £100m signing is a flop, when you are immune to the financial challenges and pressures that most clubs have to work within, then we can't ignore that. We still have to congratulate City and Guardiola on what they've done and we've seen in the past that money doesn't absolutely guarantee success but when you have money at the level that City do, then it's as close as you can come to guaranteeing success". Or words to that effect. I think anybody in the football media who spoke like that would gain instant respect - congratulating City, recognising their brilliance but also pointing out the realities.

I think the brilliance of Liverpool and Klopp over the last few years, getting within one point of City on two occasions and actually beating them on another occasion (whilst out-stripping them in the Champions League) has masked the problem but, by rights, City should be sweeping all before them, winning the league with six weeks to spare every year and we'd be talking about the type of one team dominance that English football media are often critical of when looking at France and Germany.

Just a question to put out there

Going into next season what additions (if any) do people think we could make to the squad?

Good practice to strengthen whilst you're at the top and for me I think we somehow need to add

Next season will be a tough one with the WC bang in the middle of it so I think all sides would benefit from a bigger squad.

The two areas that need attention are midfield and a decision needs to be made on the situations of Salah, Mane and Firmino as they’ll be entering the last year of their respective contracts.

I think it is obvious that we are short of quality in midfield, I’ve no idea who we’ll go for and the most Suitable candidate I can think of is going to Madrid. I think we’ll be avoiding Bissouma because of off the pitch issues. We won’t be in the hunt for Declan Rice as he’s way too expensive. Same for Bellingham, but that’s fine as I don’t think he’s the kind of midfielder we need. Akira has suggested we’re going for Sandro Tonali, though I can’t see it myself and I don’t think he’s suit the premier league, Akira was spot on with Diaz, so who knows?

If somehow we renew the contracts of Salah, Mane and Firmino then that’s great. If not then I think we have to sell Mane and Salah and let Firmino run his contract down, as long as we avoid the likes of Danjuma, Gakpo, Dembele and Traore then that’s a good start as none of them are remotely good enough to fill the void that Salah and Mane will leave.

My personal choice would be Darwin Nunez and Jarrod Bowen, I think in Nunez it would give us something different up front with his pace and power to go with his skill and in Bowen we’d have a very good proven premier league player who has improved year on year, who I think Klopp would make world class.

Hi eds,

Time for a different kind of question that has not been asked for a while I see:

Who are currently the best sporting directors in the world of football?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - It is difficult to rank them but in my opinion Luis Campos and Andrea Berta would be leading contenders. Others might argue Antonio Cordon, Paul Mitchell and Olivier Pickeu are three who are very well respected - although Pickeu of course has broadened his horizons.}

Morning Eds,

So close yet so far yesterday. We'll go again. I found Klopp's post match comments interesting about how we'll "rebuild a team and go again".

That's what's desperately needed. Let a few of the passengers go and bring in some fresh faces. Any idea what a "rebuild" of sort could look like this summer in terms of ins and outs?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained where I know of interest and the players who are leaving and others where interest is being shown in them.}

Hoping that was Keita's last appearance in a Red shirt at Anfield yesterday, awful player, stealing minutes from Jones, Elliott etc, be glad when he's gone, please tell me i'll get my wish Eds.

Hang on, Lancaster, we might need him on Saturday. We can call him properly when he goes.

23 May 2022 12:03:32
He really is a waste of space.

Thought the midfield in general was quite poor yesterday after Thiago went off, but sur we won 3-1 so i suppose we've become a spoilt bunch havnt we.

23 May 2022 13:03:04
Jadon, not spoilt pal just see him as he is, a massive waste of a player, messes his pants if someone goes near him, messes his pants when he gets the ball and messes his pants if he has to sprint more than 10 yards, he is the worse player in our squad and i can't wait to see the back of him, harsh but fair i think.

We will win Champions League next Saturday, no question in my mind.

Something has to be done regarding the growing trend of fans running on to the pitch and assaulting players and managers.

The authorities need to act before we are paying tribute to a unfortunate player/ manager who has been brutally injured or even killed.

There is no excuse for what is in effect tresspassing and endangering players safety in what is effectively there work place.

imo fines don't work- points deductions should make the mindless moron's think twice, given that they would be punishing the team they claim to support.

Stadium bans for the supporters who have done and points deductions. Make the penalties as punitive as possible.
