Great to see trent scoring yesterday, for the ability he has I think he should score more. What a wonderful player he is.

Digger10

{Ed025's Note - it was more of an assist digger. Ake scored the goal with a fine header. Trent is an excellent player but he’s a bit of a mars bar for me..


1.) 31 Jul 2022 10:12:35
Ed25 what you like to do with Mars bars I’d keep to yourself personally.

{Ed025's Note - eating them mate..


2.) 31 Jul 2022 11:12:33
Ed025
Do you mean he is getting smaller over time.

{Ed025's Note - well his head is getting bigger gaga. Very talented…but he does love himself..


3.) 31 Jul 2022 12:33:48
Agree he gets into great positions he has the potential to be 10 goals+ aswell as his assists.


4.) 31 Jul 2022 12:41:26
If Trent is a Mars bar, the Everton defence has to be 4 jaffa cakes.


5.) 31 Jul 2022 12:42:21
Seeing as he’s not an Everton fan, he does have one less reason to hate himself, ed. ;)


6.) 31 Jul 2022 12:50:34
Alexander-Arnold is confident because he deserves to be. Sometimes success brings complacency and ego and hope it doesn’t happen. There’s room for improvement in his game.


7.) 31 Jul 2022 15:03:39
He’s 23 and if he retired today. Would sit comfortably in the top 5 right backs the premier league has ever seen. Baring that in mind, I think he will improve massively, when he hits his prime in 6/ 7 years he’ll be one of the best fullbacks Ever.


8.) 31 Jul 2022 13:23:24
Take your point Ed025. Wasn't sure the finger to the lips celebration was necessary. The will be games when it will come back and bite you. Best way to silence opposition fans is to play well and score.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely gaga mate..


9.) 31 Jul 2022 14:21:51
Ah now ed25 the ball bairly brushed 1 of akes dreadlocks.

{Ed025's Note - it was going in the middle of the goal digger until ake rose like a sock eyed salmon and guided it in off the post. Speck savers are open on a Sunday mate ..?


10.) 31 Jul 2022 15:36:07
For the amount of crap he takes by the media when it comes to England and the fact Sidegate thinks Walker and sometimes even Trippier is ahead of him is beyond me. Glad he has confidence in himself and so he should.


11.) 31 Jul 2022 16:06:39
Unfortunately I'm working on extending our trophy cabinet today so won't make specsavers ???.


12.) 31 Jul 2022 17:52:15
Can we all just hold off on slagging Jaffa cakes. They’re so good!


13.) 31 Jul 2022 19:09:13
What Ed 025 means is that were TAA a "mars bar", he would eat himself an age old expression for a big head!

Here's an LFC football quiz question regarding food, can anyone make a boy's first name out of Trebor (clue? he is LFC's most successful football manager ever? ) .

Ed025 looks like we will have to educate these young urchins?


14.) 31 Jul 2022 19:35:26
England Ladies have won, hope she takes her top off again?

(Kelly shows her Belly! )


15.) 31 Jul 2022 21:38:35
Success always brings out the haters. Especially the "say it like it is" ones.


16.) 31 Jul 2022 21:41:32
007, so that was the memorable and pivotal part of the game for you? ?.


17.) 31 Jul 2022 23:26:25
I was gutted when KDB assisted one of our defenders to deflect the ball into our goal to make it 2-2 at Anfield last season. Would have won the title had KDB not got that assist.


18.) 01 Aug 2022 05:42:49
he was wandering around raising his hand asking for offside for first goal instead stopping the ball to go to Alvarez feet for the first goal, he shouldn't be playing in big games.

Hello ed2. Do you know if liverpool have any geniune interest in Darwin nunez? I tried searching but couldn't find anything.

Digger10

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool.}


1.) 10 May 2022 07:38:08
Thanks. On the 2 games we played them he was real handful, if any of bobby, salah, mane where to leave this summer I'd like him to replace them albeit I've only seen him play twice. Having the 5 top forwards is great especially next season when there will be 5 subs allowed in premiership.


2.) 10 May 2022 19:56:00
I think we get son if spuds don’t get top four.


3.) 10 May 2022 20:10:03
To replace who though?


4.) 11 May 2022 04:19:08
Probably Mo.


5.) 11 May 2022 09:27:04
I think Son would be the perfect Bobby replacement but honestly I think we’ve got more chance of finding intelligent cheese on the moon.


6.) 11 May 2022 10:22:04
Isn’t Son 29/ 30?


7.) 11 May 2022 12:33:54
More chance of Nunez than Son.

Good morning ed2. Do you know if kelleher is looking to leave this summer be it on loan r permanent? Thought we would struggle to hold on to him beyond this summer but there no talk of him leaving so hopefully he will stay. Excellent keeper.

Digger10

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. He signed a new contract last summer.}


1.) 24 Apr 2022 12:51:05
Is Adrian leaving in the summer and if he does do you see the club bringing in a 3rd choice Keeper or do you think the young Brazilian lad will do that job.
For me I would rather the young Brazilian take that job he is 20 next season and would rather him get some first team experience around the squad instead of bringing in an older keeper just to sit on the bench.

{Ed002's Note - Loris Karius will leave and although Adrián is out of contract in the summer, perhaps a one year deal?


2.) 24 Apr 2022 12:51:36
Good news that, thought we wouldn't be fit to keep him and neco due to who in front of them. neco will leave I'm sure but good to hopefully keep kelleher, he could easily be 1st choice for most premier league teams particularly with him being so good with his feet.


3.) 24 Apr 2022 19:48:06
Will Pitaluga qualify as home grown when he turns 21 next year?


 

 

15 Apr 2022 07:43:57
Good morning ed2. Do u know if we have any interest in the monaco lad tchoumeni? Real Madrid be linked with him a lot. I tried searching here and on European pages but I can't find anything on him.

Digger10

{Ed002's Note - Aurelien Tchouameni (DM/CM) Juventus, Real Madrid and Chelsea have a declared an interest in the player and have held discussions with Monaco. However, after signing Zakaria, Juventus can probably now be discounted. Real Madrid opted for Camavinga and have yet to realistically exploit him - and they will concentrate on other priorities but cannot be discounted as Casemiro might leave in the summer. PSG need to make significant changes to their aging midfield and have spoken with his agent, although not yet Monaco. Again, I would not discount them. Chelsea had a creative solution in mind that would suit both clubs and will likely push for a deal, but of course will have new owners by the summer. Manchester City have a list of potential Fernandinho replacements, including Tchouameni. Other clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund have looked at him but either have no interest or have preferred midfield targets. Monaco have told clubs that they are not looking to sell for less than €100M but realistically it will be less than that. Barcelona would be priced out of a deal unless players would be taken in exchange as they have other plans for their money this coming summer. It is difficult to imagine any side paying that much and Madrid would almost certainly look to including one or more players in any deal. Monaco won't accept a player exchange but the player wants to move to Real Madrid and that may not be possible for cash.}


1.) 15 Apr 2022 10:20:00
Thanks v much for that.


2.) 15 Apr 2022 17:35:34
Ed2. Is there anybody you don't know about?

If i had all this info in my head, something else would fall out the other side. Like where i lived and what my name was.

{Ed002's Note - much of it sits in a database.}


 

 

27 Mar 2022 09:27:11
Good morning ed2. I see barcalona heavily linked with haaland and salah. Surely Barcelona wouldn't be in financial position to pay the wages either of them 2 would demand?

Digger10

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona already have an injection of cash coming and will be selling players to buy and bringing in perhaps four Free Agents. In terms of Haaland, Barcelona have a great relationship with his agent and they are the preferred choice for the player but there are other sides interested as well. The issue for them is the funding of the wages and the fees. As for Salah he would cost less and his agent continues to hawk him around. I would not discount Barcelona as an option if, as I think is likely, lose out on Haaland. They will look to including players where they can.}


1.) 27 Mar 2022 10:13:57
The Juventus stories on Salah are becoming louder, what do you expect LFC would accept to let Salah go when the next transfer window opens?

Personally, being biased of course, I would feel it would be better for him to stay with this established high performing team with the best 2 attacking full backs in the game at this moment but I can understand reasons for leaving such as new challenge, warmer climates, more money and Klopp has not committed to the length of the new contract that Salah wants.

Whatever happens Salah will be a club legend and I hope he goes out on a super high of being English and European Champions again.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are looking to have him sign a new contract rather than sell him.}


2.) 27 Mar 2022 10:38:15
Thanks for that. Lot of big players look like moving this summer.

{Ed002's Note - Indeed.}


3.) 27 Mar 2022 13:16:39
Ed2 what’s your opinion on what will happen with Salah? Do you see him signing a new contract or leaving for pastures new? Appears he’s angling for a move still or hoping LFC increase their offer? Do you see him getting any kind of offer he wants from a European club as things stand?

{Ed002's Note - It is diffcult for the club and it is hard to tell what will happen. I suspect the contract situation is made complicated because of his prior expectation to be the post-Ronaldo poster boy at Real Madrid - and he might of been if the financial expectations were more reasonable. Approaching 30 he might now be thinking that opportunity has gone for good and his "agent" might will be pressing for a huge deal in terms of money and length of contract that would not suit Liverpool - hence there being no agreement so far. I would not discount Barcelona as an option as they will likely lose out on Haaland, but it may require at least one player in exchange. He knows that Real Madrid have a much preferred target in Mbappe, but unless that can be resolved for this summer, they could listen to his agent and perhaps make an offer. Juventus seem possible with his contract running down and they have beneficial tax advantages in their favour. PSG have other targets in mind to replace Mbappe. Inter need to replace Sanchez and Perisic and are better placed than most in respect of wages. No clubs will want to spend too much on a transfer fee.}


4.) 27 Mar 2022 15:25:41
No disrespect to barca, but who would we want in exchange from there squad.
There's not many we would want, dembele or the young lad gavi. The rest wouldn't be right.

{Ed002's Note - Dembele will be out of contract unless he signs a new one. Gavi will not be moving to Liverpool. They have plenty to offer if Liverpool make him available.}


5.) 27 Mar 2022 21:10:11
I can’t think of one Barcelona player I’d remotely want in p/ x, they’re a pale imitation of the team they used to be and they’re a bastion of mediocrity and given that they’re only going to offer their cast offs that have failed miserably it has to be a big fat no to them. And even if we sell, the transfer fee for Salah is likely to be depressingly low given age and remaining contract length, that’ll only bring tyre kickers to the yard. Still think we should pull out the stops to keep Salah, as none of the other options are at all palatable and there’s no one out there who scores at a similar rate (or looks like they could step up), that we can afford. .


6.) 27 Mar 2022 23:43:22
@VVVV, I hear Traore is doing well at Barca, could be an option 😉 Sorry couldn’t help myself mate.


7.) 27 Mar 2022 21:10:11

{Ed0666's Note - I think your correct there is absolutely no way Barca offer us any of there golden eggs like Gavi, Fatso et al. FSG are in a pickle in this particular situation there damned if they do damned if they don’t. Whatever decision they make it’s gonna be probably one of the toughest they’ll ever make for any one of their sports franchises.


8.) 28 Mar 2022 09:08:41
VVVV Pedri and ansu fati are good players.

{Ed001's Note - Fati's knees are shot. His little brother was a better player when they used to kick it about in the village my parents lived in when they were in Spain.}


9.) 27 Mar 2022 22:22:47
Who do you think they would offer?


10.) 28 Mar 2022 09:20:27
Didn't knew that story Ed01.

{Ed001's Note - luckily Ansu is young enoough to come back from it, but it is a long road ahead of him.}


11.) 28 Mar 2022 13:25:18
Like Ed said, Fati’s knees are shot, he’d struggle in a more physically demanding league, Pedri and Gavi aren’t going anywhere as Barcelona see them as the future so they’re going nowhere.

Besides, these aren’t the players Barcelona would try to offload, it’s more likely Sergi Roberto, Dest, Braithwaite, Lenglet, Umtiti, De Jong, Coutinho, Depay who are the ones on their list of potential swaps, and there’s not one player out of that ragbag army that are remotely good enough. Imagine accepting any deal which included Martin Braithwaite or Luuk DeJong? That would be disastrous.

I stand by my remark that there’s not one Barcelona player worth taking in p/ x.

If Salah goes to Barca, it will probably be for a relatively small fee compared to Salah’s ability and it’s most likely to happen at the end of the window, as Salah knows he’s in control of the situation now and Barcelona know it’s easier for them to negotiate a fee the longer it goes on for. We’ve been here before with McManaman, Owen, Can and Wijnaldum.


12.) 28 Mar 2022 14:39:22
That Coutinho fella's done half decent on loan at Villa Victor.


13.) 28 Mar 2022 15:00:54
Dest and Depay are good players VVVV, albeit not world class. Everyone else on that list can yet in the bin but i wouldn't be kicking off if we got Dest and Depay in a swap deal. Dest would be a good Williams replacement to compete with Trent, and Depay can play as a false 9, number 10 and on either wing. Probably a better player than Minamino/ Origi, and at least as good as Firmino. He's had a good career since he left Man United. I would rather straight cash though because there are better options than Dest/ Depay. It's just a bit harsh to lump them in with Braithwaite and De Jong!

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath for either.}


14.) 28 Mar 2022 17:01:56
Who exactly WILL they let us have in return for the worlds best player then? tell them its money upfront or be gone with yis. Ye wudnt see us offering Origi or Taki if it was the other way around would ye? In fact there's not a hope in hell Lfc would want any of Barca's players unless its their crown jewels.


15.) 28 Mar 2022 19:20:49
Fine by me Ed002. Just felt it was harsh to put them in with some of the others but neither would be players i'd advocate pursuing.


16.) 28 Mar 2022 22:26:02
De Jong anyone? Could still be a player there.


17.) 29 Mar 2022 07:08:33
Barcelona will not be buying Salah.

Tough match last nite. Started well but didn't test the keeper really, goal knocked us back. thought we done v well to get back into it after sending off. Harsh lesson for nunez, he will get plenty of stick for it but he young and will learn from it. Elliott v good, diaz grabbed game by scruff of neck after sending off. Everybody else average enough, milner and nunez poor I thought. In saying all that our finishing desperate again, had enough chances to win 2 games. We will get better no doubt but lack of a midfield signing is criminal, we knew we needed 1 last summer, plenty of time to get 1 in.

Digger10

1.) 16 Aug 2022 07:29:12
As you said we created enough chances to win the game don't know what midfield has to do with yesterday's game. ??.


2.) 16 Aug 2022 07:57:51
Results aside it’s our lack of intensity that has me more worried. Last night was better than Fulham (don’t think it could have been worse) but it was still a way off the usual standards.

Injuries are also a concern as I’m not sure what kind of injury stops you starting a game but allows you to play 35 mins and Bobby who had 4 separate injuries last season is Mia again. Hopefully we’ll have a few more bodies back for next Mondays game.


3.) 16 Aug 2022 08:24:44
We didn’t create many clear cut chances, our final ball was awful, only tested their keeper 3 or 4 times, we looked weak in midfield and it was a direct result of losing the ball cheaply their that they scored. But yeah, last night was great ?.


 

 

11 Aug 2022 21:59:30
Unbelievable the way barcalona going about things now and thd state they in. Not that long ago,2006-2011 they seemed to be perfect club, winning champ leagues with 5/ 6 academy players and few big signings mixed with them. And playing outstanding football into bargain. I never particularly liked Barcelona or madrid but I greatly admired that Barcelona team for how they played.

Digger10

1.) 12 Aug 2022 00:41:07
I’d imagine it was down to the fans putting pressure on because they thought they should have done even better. Fans are never happy, they never see what they have until it’s gone.


2.) 12 Aug 2022 05:49:37
footyfan mate, I hope you are not serious here and just trying to be funny!
Because that post doesn't make any sense.


3.) 12 Aug 2022 06:28:00
A simple example of system failure. A hyper-successful generation of players win everything, the fans demand more, one of the best players of all time leverages his position to practically own the club, fans demand more, president placates said player otherwise he’s voted out, president spends without limits otherwise he’s voted out, president tries to make fans happy otherwise he’s voted out. Repeat.
The above said, fans did not force Barcelona to spend nearly half a billion on Coutinho, Dembele and Griezmann.


4.) 12 Aug 2022 07:59:41
You say thar Lowe, but i certainly did not see them complaining when they signed them. They were the players the crybabies were demanding that they signed. Then, when it all goes wrong, they blame the club for spending too much money on fees and wages for players who were ‘obviously not good good enough’. Everton and United supporters have done the exact same. They love to moan about the running of the club but there can be no doubt that their own behaviour has been influential in the decisions that the club have made. None of these groups of supporters were complaining when these signings were made, on the contrary, they couldn’t stop telling us how made up they were to finally get everything they’d ever wanted.


5.) 12 Aug 2022 08:43:31
AW - The fans have had a huge part to play in Barca’s mess, without a doubt. As you say, Barcelona fans are crybabies - possibly the biggest bunch of crybabies in Europe. They would vote out a president without a second thought if that president did not pacify their ridiculous demands. However, I’ve read a number of articles saying Messi was paid £460million by the club over the course of his last 3 seasons at Barca, and that Griezmann’s weekly earnings from Barcelona alone were around €800k. Whatever pressure there was from fans, financial mismanagement on that scale should land directors in jail for a significant period. Astonishingly poor governance. Their downfall will be an enjoyable one.


6.) 12 Aug 2022 10:07:03
They’re huge club but they seem more of a social media entity than a football club at times, instead of accepting a few year rebuild they’re gambling future earnings away the now. Honestly not been impressed with their transfers for years and I don’t expect much from them this season.


7.) 12 Aug 2022 10:23:17
I don't know how they got be where they are but you would think with them in such a mess financially they would place there faith in there academy players and straighten mess out. with the quality of academy players they produce I'm sure they could be competitive in top half of la liga. As opposed to but likes of lewandski at 34 and big fransfer fee and big wages.


8.) 12 Aug 2022 10:26:00
Actually kicker it does make sense in Barca’s case, of course fans aren’t solely to blame, but I think they have a part in Barca’s case. I’ve heard that The Barcelona president is voted in by the fans and therefore they have to appease fans to stay in that position. We know from our own fan page that fans live in a fifa/ football manager world and demand big signings.

The second part of that failing is the lavish spending they’ve done has been very poorly judged - Greizman, demebele etc for massive transfer fees and outrageous wages.


9.) 12 Aug 2022 11:53:24
Of course, "the fans" have a say in how Barcelona is run. They own the club! More precisely, the club is owned by approx. 140,000 "socios" or "club members. If you want to imagine the sheer number of those "socio" voices that can influence things, imagine a full Nou Camp stadium (100,000 capacity) and add another 40%.

So maybe that's why it's such a huge mess now. But incredible that it wasn't a mess for so so many years and was running so smoothly, in the past.


10.) 12 Aug 2022 12:30:47

Agree to disagree and then agree on back to LFC posts.


15.) 12 Aug 2022 18:29:03
I think the difference with Barcelona now is that the banks want their money back and FFP has finally caught up with their underhand dealings.

Hello ed1 hope u keeping well? looking at our fixtures to start season, our first 3 games we'll spaced out.9 days between 1st game and 2nd and 7 days between 2nd and 3rd. games get more congested after that like it will do for all teams playing in Europe. In them first 3 games would u go your strongest 11 to start in all 3, or would u rotate hoping rest will be beneficial down the line.

2.) 01 Aug 2022 17:39:45
Whatever way klopp goes about it i think it crucial we start well and don't let city get ahead of us, as we have seen virtually impossible to catch them if they get ahead. I think he will go full strength in them 3 games apart from possibly bobby starting at Fulham instead of nunez.


3.) 01 Aug 2022 17:55:53
I agree digger. We’ve practically got to win every game until the gap is massive. I can’t see us winning a tight race, the only way is like 2019, and go on a massive winning run from the first game until the gap is unrealistic for City. I actually think we can aswel.


4.) 01 Aug 2022 18:33:23
We’ve been top of the league for a couple of Xmas days as well and still not won the league. City are an exceptionally good side once on top and also chasing.

Yes people can mention the year we won it and we actually dominated that season but there’s been at least another 3 where City have either caught us or lead and we were unable to catch them.

Only way to put City to bed is to be as close to a perfect season as possible to get them points on the board.


5.) 01 Aug 2022 21:27:38
The way to beat City is to play well and beat them in the league. I don’t think we played well in either PL game v City last year. Our biggest players have to turn up for these fixtures and most of them didn’t. Fabs for example was a mile off.


6.) 02 Aug 2022 00:03:52
The way to win the League is to play at the same high levels we know we can produce whoever the opponent is.

We didn’t lose to City last season but dropped our levels against the ‘lesser’ teams.

Each game played like it’s a semi final of a major cup for me.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s impossible to play at such an optimum level every game. City don’t play well every week nor did the conquering Man Utd sides Ferguson managed. The human body can only do so much, human biology can’t be vanquished by people saying we’ve got to put a super human effort into every game. There are always nuances that will occur that can’t be overcome.


7.) 02 Aug 2022 01:34:06
This season will not be just citeh. There will spurs, ManU, arsenal, chelsea as well.


8.) 02 Aug 2022 07:05:00
I would think the same Leek, but there will always be a bogie team like West Ham were last year or Leicester the previous to make it more interesting. Everyone here in Nottingham thinks it will be Forest, although I'm not convinced. With all the squad strengthening between the top 6 teams, this season should make for an eventful one!


9.) 02 Aug 2022 10:09:14
If you produced your absolute best all the time, it wouldn’t be your best anymore and would then become the norm.


10.) 02 Aug 2022 11:11:26
Just in reply to mine I said as close to a perfect season (league) as possible. You don’t have to be at your best to win every game but winning them is key. Many a team that’s won the title have won plenty of games playing poorly.

I disagree, humbly. The thing is that you can play well against City and still lose so just playing well won't cut it, IMO. What we have to do (which is what we have done in the past 2 games) is go for the throat from the off. Start fast, set the tempo early esp in the press to let them know what type of game they are in. If you just play well against them (which we have in the past), we will lose, just like we did at the Etihad in 18/ 19.

We played like this in 19/ 20 not just vs City (who we battered 3-1 at Anfield) BUT vs every team in the first half of that season and the league was pretty much wrapped up by Christmas. This is the way to go, IMO.

Hello ed1 hope u keeping well? . Have you seen much or heard anything of sepp van der berg, would he be 1st team material for liverpool? Seems to have impressed in his loan at preston and reports of plenty of interest in him this summer, beit a loan move or permanent.

Digger10

{Ed001's Note - he did impress at PNE but he is still a way off being ready for the first team. We have no real space for him in the squad to get him regular footie, so he probably needs a loan.}

Another loan seems sensible. Impressed with the development in physicality and seems to be showing some real tenacity in his game. I for one will admit I didn't think much of him. Well done, lad.


2.) 19 Jul 2022 11:53:26
Is he thought of at the club as a centre half or Right back as i believe he played both at Preston.

Centre Half we are pretty stacked at the moment and even Gomez and Phillips who are both fan favourites are finding game time recently few and far between.

Hello ed0666 hope u keeping well? do you know if any of the 'new' young lads on the tour are thought to be of 1st team quality? By new I mean Chambers, Clark etc, lads that haven't played for the 1st team previously.
Secondly a lot of people (myself included) believe we need new midfielder who can play 6 and 8,with rumours that we not going to buy 1, do you think Tyler morton could be that player for us THIS SEASON?

Digger10

{Ed0666's Note - sorry mate no idea about any of the kids.


1.) 15 Jul 2022 14:11:13
OP, Morton is more of an 8 and not a 6 even tho, they had to play him there last season cos guys were not available due to C. V. As for kids, Elliott is still a kid and Jones is young and both can definitely shine for us, IMO.

As for a mid coming in, I want one too BUT the situation is what it is. Also, someone has to go first for one to come in and if the club are not keen on whatever alternatives they have for whatever reason (availability, quality of the player etc. ) then, we go with what we have and move on.


2.) 15 Jul 2022 15:05:25
@Oli, why does someone have to go first .

We have sold or released (and loaned out) a significant number of players that have brought in money and / or cut the wage bill. There is already a team (plus a few subs) gone which is a lot more outgoing than in, so far.

Karius

Bradley (loan)
Koumetio (loan)
Davies, Phillips and / Rhys Williams (think two will be sold and one out on loan), especially if Van den Berg has a good pre-season
Beck (loan)

Neco Williams
Balagizi (loan)
Woodburn

Minamino
Mane
Origi.

Rumour has it that Casualty and Holby City have both put in big bids for the Ox and Naby to play various patients over the series.

Rumour is if both fail the Medicals the incoming fee could exceed what we got for Coutinho.


4.) 15 Jul 2022 15:55:22
WDW. One of our 1st team kids needs to go before we bring one in because you can only register a certain amount of players in your squad.

Without signing a CM we already have Hendo, Millie, fab, Thiago, Elliot, ox, naby, Jones. If you decide to count carvarlho in that we mix we have up to 9 cm’s. We cannot sensibly sign a tenth without moving one on.

My personal opinion of course.


5.) 16 Jul 2022 08:21:04
I get that we have a lot of mf players but many of them are more attacking and are young to boot.
If we have to play the likes of City with one (or God forbid both) of Fab and Hendo out then we will get shredded.

Ed1 when u are on the subject of good players, what u make of trossard at Brighton? Anytime I see he really impresses me, always a handful for the opposition. V surprised he never linked with so called bigger clubs . if I was man utd he would be a player I'd go for.

Digger10

{Ed001's Note - flits in and out of games, lightweight and very inconsistent. Can be good but I think more of it is down to Potter being an excellent coach and getting the best from him, rather than him being anything special.}

I don't know how they got be where they are but you would think with them in such a mess financially they would place there faith in there academy players and straighten mess out. with the quality of academy players they produce I'm sure they could be competitive in top half of la liga. As opposed to but likes of lewandski at 34 and big fransfer fee and big wages.

Ed1. Nunez has been impressive so far hasn't he. Bit raw after times but he's definitely a handful . liked what I saw of him against us in champ league and even more so now he on our side.

Yeah I think nunez has to start next game v palace. klopp I'd say intended starting Bobby for first 2/ 3 league games and easing nunez in but bobby v poor yesterday (along with others) and wasn't in game against city in charity sheild either. 2 x night games coming up with good breaks in between I expect good reaction from us to poor performance yesterday. elliott I presume will replace thiago.
