Sorry, have been asleep for a few weeks but last time I checked the site it was all "season's gone" and "no chance of top four", as well as those preferring to finish 8th rather than the europa spot.
Have I missed something?

Nobody anticipated Leicester and Chelsea to keep shooting themselves in the foot :P

But credit where it's due. 17 points from the last 7 games deserves praise.


2.) 18 May 2021 07:34:25
I'll be honest Burkeyboy I'd given up on Top 4 around February/ March. Will be delighted to be proven wrong.


3.) 18 May 2021 08:42:59
Arsenal beat someone.


4.) 18 May 2021 09:52:37
There's a bit of 20/ 20 hindsight going on here though isn't there. The team had been playing poorly since Xmas - for pretty obvious reasons - and were giving no reason whatsoever for any optimism.


5.) 18 May 2021 10:30:10
Don’t count your chickens till they hatch mate we all want top for but let’s wait n see 🤞🏼.


6.) 18 May 2021 10:30:19
Who would face predicted Arsenal beating Chelsea and us beating United away 4-2? In all honesty? And if those results went the other way we’d be in the Thursday Cup. Based on this season those results were highly unpredictable. Tonight gives us another chance, but we still need to win both of our remaining games and win them comfortably. Let’s hope Burnley and Palace have their flip flops on….


7.) 19 May 2021 08:11:18
Vic, just wins will more than likely do the job. We don’t necessarily need to win comfortably.
Not easy as Burnley and Palace are exactly the type of teams we’ve struggled against but wins by 1 goal should be enough as Leicester will need to beat Spurs by 3 and anyone who saw them last night would not be confident of that happening at all.

I know not Liverpool related, and I know the figures can be exaggerated, but I read that though Cavani signed on a free, the agent's fees are expected to come in lower than 10m euros. Can that be right, 10m in fees? What do they do for that money?

Burkeyboy

{Ed025's Note - the same as what mino raiola done for the pogba to united deal burkey...he raked in £42m for that one, so very little, these leeches are bleeding the game dry mate..


1.) 06 Oct 2020 09:16:49
That’s disgusting they need to be removed leeches is being polite.


2.) 06 Oct 2020 10:07:19
I really don't understand why they get so much money? what am I missing here? I don't get it at all. There should be some sort of cap on it.

{Ed002's Note - There are already rules concerning agents and there are plans to change them that will possibly come in to force next summer.}


3.) 06 Oct 2020 10:13:59
Well that's refreshing news Ed! a long time coming.


4.) 06 Oct 2020 10:57:11
I feel like I can add something here as I did meet mino once and had a chat with him. I think I've posted the conversation before but I'll give the broad strokes here.

From the perspective of an agent, they feel they are worth their money because their job is to get the best possible financial deal for their client. They believe they're the only ones solely focused on their clients finances (clubs largely want to use the players talent and would not be focused on finance at all )

He (mino) said "footballers career is short. They spend much while they play. Its my job to make sure when the career is finished they still have money to spend and don't need to work in supermarket. Why should I negotiate millions for my clients and peanuts for myself? "

He also alluded a few times to the fact many executives in football get paid huge sums.

I'm not saying that his view is 100% correct, because it's not. But it's also not wrong either. Before agents had the power they do now footballers were paid significantly less and many footballers even at pro level had no money beyond their career.


5.) 06 Oct 2020 11:10:16
I know! Perish the thought of a footballer having to work like the rest of us until their 60s!
Even Ed002 still works although I'm guessing that's just to keep him in the finest gin and cocktails 😉.


6.) 06 Oct 2020 12:04:12
Agents may try and get as much money for their clients as possible but they quite often ruin careers and advise players to go where the money is rather than what will be good for their development.
Would be good if agents gave players useful advise on what to do with their millions such as good Long term investments rather than watching them continuously burn through it and keeping them topped up, that’s not good for when the players career does end and they are still burning through it.

{Ed002's Note - The players get advised over money matters but there has been a recent trend with some younger players running wild. Clubs rather than agents take this responsibility.}


7.) 06 Oct 2020 12:55:29
Thanks Ed002. I do worry to hear of some young players running wild as you say, makes me worry what kind of mess their lives will be like when they Eventually get thrown into the real world. Hopefully clubs will start to get a grip on it and keep these youngsters grounded.

{Ed002's Note - They will fall back on the typical post-football trades of publican or insurance salesman.}


8.) 06 Oct 2020 13:43:20
IMO athletes get the raw end of the stick, no one ever says anything about Oprah raking in 100 millions for having a talk show or even Kelly Ripa who earns a million dollars for talking about what she had for dinner the previous night (Mainly U. S references as I am state side) . In regards to an agent, I have had the pleasure of knowing some when they were starting out it is rough. I had a buddy who was going to the colleges in the U. S and begging players to sign with him prior to going professional. Then investing their own money into the player such as creating a profile along with marketing material and preparation for the upcoming draft. They would get the player drafted and prior to negotiating a contract, he would get a termination letter from the client, where they would get minimal reimbursement for services rendered.

The average footballers career is 8 years, god forbid they get an injury or have any long term nagging injuries that will impact them for the rest of their lives. Just my opinion.


9.) 06 Oct 2020 20:20:26
Plus, you have to remember there are thousands of agents worldwide and it would be interesting to see what percentage make more than the average salary in their own countries. We only hear of the small minority no doubt who are making millions.


10.) 06 Oct 2020 20:27:59
Harry your not wrong, also when you compare to other entertainment industries the salaries aren't so disproportionate to the salaries earned. However, usually agents fees are capped, likewise commissions. The issue I see is in extortionate fees and whilst not privvy to the detailed info the sancho deal and pogba transfers seem v v high.

The issue of earnings I can give a small insight into. Footballers are second to only stockbrokers as the biggest idiots with their money! I wish I had more as clients. so many wouldn't need TV work to supplement earnings and then maybe michah r and jenas wouldn't have to work anymore :)


11.) 06 Oct 2020 22:46:24
It's amazing to see United's history if doing deals with raola and his clients costing the club so much money while the record of transfers being a successful investment is rather poor. Pogba, di Maria, falcao, myhkitarian, lukaku, ibrahimovich were all his clients if I'm not mistaken and he negotiated huge deals which couldn't have been kind to United's finances. Is there a reason he has extra joy working with United for example? Would personal friendships etc play a part to help him?

And then for example there's hardly any previous signings we attempt to pursue for players signed under his agency. Do clubs purposely ignore certain players due to simply not liking dealing with their representatives?


 

 

21 Feb 2018 07:15:43
Been busy for a few days so haven't checked site much. Did a quick search for Wanyama after seeing some links, but can't find anything from Ed001 and 002 specifically ruling out any interest. Please tell me the links are crap.

Burkeyboy

{Ed001's Note - I do not know of any interest in him from us at all. No idea where the links come from, but it sounds like manufactured crap because he once played for Southampton.}


1.) 21 Feb 2018 07:28:44
I would be extremely happy if we could bring him in. He will do a great job covering the back 4.None of the players we have right now is a defencive midfielder and from what i 've heard and read mostly neither is Keita (I 've seen very little of him to form an oppinion) . In any case it is a position that needs strengthening in the summer.

{Ed001's Note - but he is awful at the role, he is constantly caught out of position and it terrible on the ball. He is just a big, powerful lump with none of the mental attributes required to be a top level player. You need more than pace and power to be good at the role of defensive midfielder, positioning is the most important part of the job and he has not got a clue about it.}


2.) 21 Feb 2018 07:54:47
Who would be your preference Ed001 for defencive midfielder? I remember the Southampton Wanyama who was really dominant. Has he declined that much?

{Ed001's Note - he was crap there too, I don't know what you are remembering at all. He uses pace and power to make up for his own mistakes but it does not always work. He is just an average player who has risen too high for his limited talents. Southampton and Spurs have an extra body alongside him to provide cover for those lapses in concentration he has numerous times a game, so they can get away with him being asleep, we don't.

I do wonder why I bother answering questions like this as I have said already on a number of threads who my preferences are. Is there much point me constantly repeating them only to get asked the same question the following day?}


3.) 21 Feb 2018 08:32:19
Ndidi!

stevie started the rumours about wanyama. and actually it's quite funny when you think about it. A+ for idnteifying we need to solidfy the midfield and then he gets an F for saying we need to bring in a big powerful midfielder like wanyama to do that.


4.) 21 Feb 2018 10:30:24
Very worrying for Gerrard's credentials as a future first team manager 🤔

Ed001 didn't actually say Ndidi by the way. For years he wanted Gary Medel and more recently he has suggested Nampalys Mendy as his preferred choice. He's playing well in Nice to be fair.

Ndidi is a player he's said he likes though, along with Obiang and Doucoure. It wasn't his suggestion though.

I still think Demirbay might be the "powerhouse" midfield signing though. He seems to be regarded as an attacking player by most on here, but he is actually very similar to Doucoure. He is fast and powerful which does allow him to break forward from deep to score and create goals, but he actually averages 2 tackles a game for Hoffenheim which is comparable to an out and out holding midfielder. He's over 6 foot, very aggressive, and can play the holding role, box to box, or the No.10.

He's very versatile, and brings much needed steel to the midfield. Most importantly, he is a player we are actually interested in though. Don't forget Keita too who is also very aggressive and contributes a lot defensively. Not many teams would want to face a trio of Keita, Henderson and Demirbay! That is a lot of pace and power, combined with high quality on the ball. Wanyama unfortunately lacks the quality side of things!


5.) 21 Feb 2018 11:20:34
For all wanyamas bad points.

Having someone 6ft, strong, uninterested in wandering up field and will just plonk his was between the two cbs for me is just what we need. It will allow keita, Hendo and the 3 amigos to run riot whilst having someone help us keep our defensive shape.

Also if he is relatively cheap it could be a wise move for a few seasons, maybe focus the rest of our budget on cb and qingback needs.


6.) 21 Feb 2018 12:17:36
his bad points are the very reason to steer clear, as van morrrison would say keep mediocrity at bay.


7.) 21 Feb 2018 13:07:49
Unbelievable people thinking plonking Wanyama in front of defence will improve the midfield. This is not under 10’s football.


8.) 21 Feb 2018 13:31:12
Not good but still managed that screamer against us lol. I don't think he's that bad but he is not good enough for us, especially in a defensive position.


9.) 21 Feb 2018 13:32:53
I've watched Wanyama start twice recently, against Newport County and Rochdale and he was woeful in both games against quite terrible opposition.

There is a reason why Dembele (an excellent player) and Dier (a distinctly average player) are ahead of him in the Spurs team. He is poor. He runs around a lot and is quite strong, and every now and then he hits s thunderbolt of a shot which everyone go "ooooo".

I hope we steer well clear. (if we are even interested at all. which I doubt)


 

 

15 May 2016 09:01:45
Hey Ed001. Any chance Ings could be on the bench? I know he's only just returned to training, just wondering.
Also, so happy for Suarez. I know he couldn't wait to move on, but he gave his all when wearing the shirt.

Burkeyboy

{Ed001's Note - they were hoping he would be fit to take at least some part in the game. I don't know, nor will I ask as the club a long time ago asked me not to give out team details prior to matches, whether that is still happening. I want the club to succeed first and foremost, so, as they said it was giving an advantage to the opposition, I am happy to steer clear of team sheets etc. Sorry, I know it is not ideal for the sites, but the club is more important to me.}


1.) 15 May 2016 10:12:13
Well done 001.

{Ed001's Note - it has to be done. The club are my first love after all!}


2.) 15 May 2016 10:21:50
Are team sheets/ news banned now? I hope so for the same reasons Ed01. The people it benefits most are the opposition.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I just have no involvement in them.}


3.) 15 May 2016 10:32:10
I hope your wife to be isn't reading, ed. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - she knows mate.}


4.) 15 May 2016 12:17:01
I'd say Ed most of us here aren't to bothered about team sheets. It's who's coming and going that we are more interested in.

{Ed001's Note - it does make a huge difference to traffic if you can post them up, so it only applies for those here now, rather than those we could attract.}


5.) 15 May 2016 13:13:00
Thanks for doing that ed, that's completely the right thing to do! Come on reds let's get top 5 and build for next year.


 

 

15 Jan 2015 00:02:54
A week ago someone mentioned aussie keeper Matt Ryan. I see a couple of papers are suggesting we're interested. Heard anything Eds?
From the little I've seen he looks a decent keeper with good distribution and is quite vocal. Pulled off a blinding save last week in their first group game of the Asian cup, ball looked destined for the top corner.

Burkeyboy

{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told there has been an enquiry from us, that has been leaked to try and bring others who are interested out of the woodwork.}


1.) 15 Jan 2015 07:48:00
Ed001 - a leak from Ryan's management or from Bruges?

{Ed001's Note - Bruges, they are looking for more money.}


2.) 15 Jan 2015 08:23:01
Seen him in a few games now. Not sure if he is the real thing YET, as he seems to loose his head (Like Grobelaar), but the kids got a big talent for sure


3.) Thanks Ed001. Presumed that would be the case, but just wanted to check.


4.) 15 Jan 2015 09:22:31
This bloke is 5ft11 just as well puttin Warwick Davis between the sticks


5.) 15 Jan 2015 17:21:20
Completely agree, far too short for the premier league. We are the worst in Europe when it comes to scouting and transfersz

What beautiful feet of Joel Matip for the opening goal. Mane's pass was sublime, but the delicate second ball from Matip was fabulous.
Did you see Milner's reaction on the bench? Fantastic.

Burkeyboy

1.) 20 Apr 2022 08:48:22
Wasn't that the 2nd goal? Salah's first?


2.) 20 Apr 2022 10:08:18
Yep sorry, second goal.


3.) 20 Apr 2022 10:46:57
Some of the passing and assists last night were out of this world. Even Allison got in on the act with 2 passes that any world class outfield footballer would be proud of.


4.) 20 Apr 2022 10:08:18
Yep sorry, second goal.


5.) 20 Apr 2022 13:17:27
Second goal was a brilliant team goal. The pass from Mane was pure filth. The way Salah took it in his stride was brilliant.


6.) 20 Apr 2022 13:30:42
25 to 27 passes, I think for the second goal.


7.) 20 Apr 2022 15:08:34
I think they said VVD was the only Liverpool player not to touch the ball in the build up to that goal.


8.) 20 Apr 2022 16:49:10
JK23, and the hits keep coming. Love it.


 

 

20 Feb 2022 02:12:08
I know there are 13 games to go, but seen a few comments about it's still city's to lose.
No, it's ours to win. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we win all our remaining games we win it? With the goals were scoring we'd likely have a better GD than city. I know 13 on the trot on top of our recent run is near impossible, but it's the same for them.

Burkeyboy

1.) 20 Feb 2022 06:15:18
I still think City will win the league. We will be winning the UCL and Carabao however.


2.) 20 Feb 2022 07:45:04
OP, it could go either way at this point and that would still be the case even if we win the Leeds game.

Also remember that a lot of these pundits already gave City the title weeks ago so of course they will stick to their guns come hell or high water even after the facts have clearly changed. It’s an ego thing with them at this point as well, man.


3.) 20 Feb 2022 07:56:14
Let’s just enjoy the ride, every game in every tournament is a must win…. let’s hope it results in some silverware.


4.) 20 Feb 2022 09:04:29
It’s going to be very close but watch city recently even the games they have won a lot of the opening goals have been gifted to them.
I think there lack of goal scorers might be the difference in are favour. The start and middle of the season when teams play city and just don’t want to be hammered changes in this part of the season when teams need a win and nothing else is good enough. With City I can see games like yesterday happening a lot more totally Dominant but just not scoring the goals they was lucky to get the 2 goals they got yesterday and spurs should have had more.
But we do have some big games to play but if we can win are next 2 Leeds and Chelsea in the cup final I do think we are going to take some stopping.


5.) 20 Feb 2022 09:52:19
I agree it’s in our hands but equally it’s in their hands and it’s not the same for them as they can afford to draw our game.

It will be tough and our fixture list isn’t easy but it will be a good battle and hopefully we can go on another big run.


6.) 20 Feb 2022 10:12:52
It will be very difficult to topple city ( to be honest I thought it was gone few weeks ago) but when this club/ team get on a roll with the massive backing of fans we are very hard to stop. we will need luck with injuries (surly we due a bit on that front) same as everybody else but we will be hard beaten in every competition we in. Signing Diaz has been brilliant boost for fans, club, team, u can see it has give everybody lift. Not to mention how good a player he looks.


7.) 20 Feb 2022 10:24:53
Considering the barrel we were staring down at the start of Jan compared to now is testament to Klopp, the coaches, the players and lastly but not least the fans.

The pressure seems to be on City whilst yesterday we seemed to just shift through the gears to get a win despite going behind over panicking.

That’s 2 games in a row now the bench has technically come on and changed the game for us.

Just remember City and Pep had been found out in Nov 20 and then they went on to win the league.

Whoever lifts the 22 title will have thoroughly deserved it. As much as we say without us City would have turned the premier league into a farmers league but also without them we probably would have as well over the last 4 years.

What a great season this has been so far but I’m sure Klopp and the players are literally taking it 1 game at a time. Next up is Leeds and then we have the Mickey Mouse cup final or as it’s known this season a big domestic cup final to win 🤣.


8.) 20 Feb 2022 10:27:03
Burkeyboy your statement is correct. It is now finally back in our hands. Win all of our remaining league games, and maintain our average goals per game ratio and it is ours.

No if, no bits. It doesn’t matter if anyone still thinks City will win it, or we will drop points, that is not what he said. And the pundits have it wrong, it is no longer just City’s to win.

They now have competition and will not be looking forward to our game at the Etihad, where they have now lost twice this season.

What a great end to the season we have unfolding. Next game Leeds - will be tough but I think the boys have the wind in their sails following the turnaround yesterday. Eunice was a breath of fresh air for us.


9.) 20 Feb 2022 10:39:14
As I said before we just need to focus on winning our games. I wouldn’t even be talking about the title tbh, no need to add the extra pressure. Means nothing if we don’t beat Leeds. Start thinking about the league in April when we go to City if we are still within touching distance or ahead of them.


10.) 20 Feb 2022 10:46:56
We are yet to play Arsenal (away), City (away) UTD (home) and Chelsea (Home) . Why do you think we would in them all?


11.) 20 Feb 2022 07:11:59
Strange you still find a reason to doubt Buzzer. Going by your name, shouldn't you be buzzing? 😂 I think we have a huge chance now but whether or not we take it is down to us but I expect that both teams will drop points and the title goes to the wire. No 20 will be a cloud 9 experience though.


12.) 20 Feb 2022 11:05:32
It's still very very difficult to win the league, I'm just hoping our boys show more hunger like us fans. Coz before Norwich scoring we had no urgency and were very very comfortable. I'm sure city are going to drop more points before we play them on April it's just on us how hungry our players are tbh.


13.) 20 Feb 2022 11:10:44
We have played Chelsea twice already. If we are involved in April then I'll be happy that's all you can ask going into a season with the resources city have. Would have bit your hand off for the position we are jn now in august.


14.) 20 Feb 2022 11:10:50
Its not a case of thinking if its won or not, its definitely not. But it is in our hands. One game at a time but we have a chance and it's there to win.

We now have a title race, let's just enjoy it and whoever finishes top will deserve if come may. Majority of us know what it's like to be out of the race by this point so let's enjoy it, it's not always like this!


15.) 20 Feb 2022 11:15:33
Transition_Time, we’ve played Chelsea at home already.

We beat arsenal away without mane and salah this season and beat man united 5-0 in their own backyard. So it’s understandable why we would be confident in those games.

Not saying it won’t be difficult but we should feel confident. The city game will be obviously be tough. No one here is suggesting we’re guaranteed to win it but given the gloom of the festive period, to have it back in our hands is a reason to be excited.


16.) 20 Feb 2022 11:16:31
Transition We have not got to play Chelsea in the league again. We do have to play City away and Arsenal but we did just beat Arsenal away with with 4 of a first team missing and 17 year old kid in place of Salah against there best 11 just about and it was a fairly straight forward victory.
Kane came back to haunt City yesterday a striker they could have signed lest hope lightning strikes twice a Ronaldo does the same when they play each other.


17.) 20 Feb 2022 11:21:00
If we win every game in every competition till the end of the season, this will be the greatest squad the English league has ever seen 😂 quadruple still on.


18.) 20 Feb 2022 11:38:59
In all of these back and forth, let's remember to join StEtienne and thank Eunice!
That's all I got to say!


19.) 20 Feb 2022 11:43:32
As much as am enjoying this fight with city for us to win the prem I’d say city would have to drop more points because I just can’t see us winning all 13 games with Tottenham, Man U, city and Everton still in there to play. If it did happen it would be truly unbelievable. Every game is going to be heart failure till the end!


20.) 20 Feb 2022 11:45:14
It is City’s to lose, they’re in the box seat, they have previous for going on long wins and we have been inconsistent this season. Even if we win our game in hand we’re still 3 points behind we’re relying on winning all of our games and city dropping at least 4 points as they’ve got better goal difference.


21.) 20 Feb 2022 11:57:58
In all honesty yesterday was a great day of football for us. Reading the comments and I see hope again, but in fairness I wouldn't think too much about the run in and who plays who, just kick back and enjoy the ride lol, it's shaping up to be a hell of a season. On to Leeds we go.


22.) 20 Feb 2022 12:08:11
City still have their own derby match to play, and as bad as united are, I still fancy them to take points from that game. Its that time of the season every club down there is scrapping for points to stay up. just wish they'd actually attack city than try to defend for 90 mins.
But we have to do our job and win most if not all our remaining games.
Enjoy the ride.


23.) 20 Feb 2022 13:08:42
Some proper banana skin games remaining for both teams. I don’t think the league will be won/ lost at the game at the emirates.
City have to be favourites still, they have a 6 points lead still.


24.) 20 Feb 2022 13:20:47
I get the sense the squad are moving into business end mindset now. Key now is to keep players fit and focused.

There are not many sides that can both defend deep and narrow for long spells as well as having the speed and skill to beat their press and break on them. Well done Spurs (Conte) and Southampton (Ralf) .

You can see why City don't feel they need a no9. This system with the extra AM allows them to literally pen you into your 18 yard box for 90 mins. Adding a no9 would mean sacrificing some of this dominance.


25.) 20 Feb 2022 20:54:25
One game at a time, eh?


26.) 21 Feb 2022 00:01:21
Vvv if we beat city by 1/ 0 we will have the better goal difference as we have scored more goals than them, hence its ours to lose.


27.) 21 Feb 2022 01:28:29
well if we were in their position we'd be saying it's ours to lose.


28.) 20 Feb 2022 22:18:42
I didn’t realise Everton play Man City. I reckon Lampard will have them well fired up for that because he was not happy about the weekend’s performance.

What a beautiful game. Ed25 is stuck between the devil and a sky blue sea.

We have to beat Leeds first. Then a tricky West Ham. I would feel confident going to City knowing a win puts us top. We won't change the way we play. Spurts showed yesterday that City are vulnerable w the ball in behind.

Merry Christmas to all the Eds and posters
I know it's cold back in the UK, but spare a thought for us immigrants sweltering down under, praying for a storm to Cool it down a bit.
Even after 30 years it still doesn't feel like Christmas.
I'm heading to a mates place where were cranking the air con right up, lighting the fire and pretending we're back home 😁.

{Ed0666's Note - Air con you fancy! Merry Xmas Burkey have a good one mate

So, Daniel Sturridge off to Perth, Western Australia.
Can think of worse ways to spend a year. Hope he stays fit and enjoys playing once again. His form for that one year with Suarez and Sterling was fabulous. Good look Daniel.

Any worse ways? Come on man, Perth is lovely!

He is saying Perth is lovely.

He never said Perth wasn't lovely.

I can think of several good reasons to avoid convict island. Great white sharks, box jellyfish, saltwater crocodiles, funnel web spiders, brown snakes, and of course, their attempts at making Lager.

Maybe I need to brush up on my English a bit! Fair play lads 🤝.

"Convict Island"? It's 32 times bigger than the size of the UK. A continent. And we're in 2021 now.

Not a country for the lily-livered like yourself, VVVV. Despite the plethora of dangerous animals in Australia, the one that causes the most deaths is the EUROPEAN honey bee.

I'm a scouser now living in coastal Qld. No better place on the planet. Shocking politicians we produce though.

I’m down in Sydney Burkey - great country and spot on about the Queensland coast and the pollys

ScoMo made me laugh the other day - his aim is to remove lockdown before December so that he “gives people the gift of Christmas” 😀😀.

Nice one Ironman 😀 if you ever YouTube the XXXX adverts check out the one where the bloke is driving his Ute over a bridge and his wife is sitting on the cans of XXXX on the flatbed at the back - years old but still makes me laugh.

I lived in Perth and my brother still does, 12 years and counting. Lovely place, great for families but a bit quiet for my liking. Beaches are great.

Was xxxx advertised by 2 scousers and each ad with end in a cheesy joke? Me and a couple of mates where in a pub on county road once in the early 2000s and they were changing brands the next day so were doing pints of xxxx for 75p a pint so they could get rid of the last couple of barrels, needless to say it got a bit messy and my performance in work the next day was less than inspiring . I won't even mention my performance with my girlfriend at the time.


15.) 02 Oct 2021 03:15:21
I'll take that as a compliment mate👍😉.

{Ed0666's Note - you know compliments are cheap from my mouth Bazza…work a little harder 😀

Reading Southgate would like more women on the England staff.
Guessing John Terry will be applying to take over Southgate's position soon.

So we’re all talking about a CB, but Eds, do we know of any actual solid interest in any? I’m hoping you won’t say Carlos.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more, say no more. Bit of a goer is she? Well, yes, she does go. Bit of a sport? Yes, she like sport.
So, you've had sex then have you? Well, yes.
What's it like?

Ed025 you clearly are not on here enough for people to get that scouse sense of humour mate. What are you doing with your time? Actually don't answer that, there are some things in life you just don't want to know.

Burkeyboy

{Ed025's Note - people tend to get too serious at times burkey, life is too short for seriousness all the time so im here to lighten the mood mate, hell im an evertonian for gods sake and spend most of my time crying so i come on here for respite and a way to vent my frustration, most people get me and some dont and they are the ones that make it all worthwhile.. :)

Can't be Walter he used the noun "we". Then again, it's only a few days after the league finished and plenty of time before the CL final for him to flip again.

agree hhani. There was some awful officiating, but both goals were correctly given. Tuchel also claimed the second goal was offside?

Ed025, I always took you as a knowledgeable bloke, but I just don't get your views on Bobby. Particularly comparing him to your lazy sods (your words) . He presses so well and although he's lost a bit of pace (never the quickest) he's still a very good footballer. His enthusiasm and selflessness is rare thing in top flight footy nowadays and I'd be very happy for him to finish his career with us, if he wishes to.

{Ed025's Note - it’s ok to have the odd passenger burkey…but not when you are challenging for the title mate. Think with your head not your heart mate and put him out to graze..

WM 73. Save your money, team kits are for under 18s. There should be a law against grown adults wearing supporter strips.

Burkeyboy

{Ed001's Note - nothing nicer than a footie shirt to wear in a hot, humid country Bb. The material is perfect. I find it much sadder that a grown adult thinks that anyone should be telling someone else how to dress. There should be a law against that.}

Nat came on a few times as a sub when a CB got injured. Instantly he appeared to be the senior defender. Talking, tackling, intercepting. A proper defender.
