Just for a bit of fun, and because I just thought of it after mentioning the potential Jamie Vardy movie, who would you get to play the Liverpool players of our PL-winning season in a Hollywood movie?

Unless it's obvious (Tom Selleck playing Alisson with matching 'tache, for example), I want an explanation of your choices! Since we're in fantasy land, you can use any actor from any point in their career, not just what they're like currently.

I was too eager to get this posted to think of my own, so I shall respond later!

Not sure about our players but I would have Kyle Chandler to play Mauricio Pochettino. Not sure how he'd be in a film about Liverpool or Vardy though.


2.) 16 Jun 2021 11:54:01
Charlie Hunnam to play Jordan Henderson. Both are from the north east and look quite a bit like one another.


3.) 16 Jun 2021 12:06:53
Pharell williams to play gini.
Nish kumar to play salah.
Ryan reynolds to play hendo.


4.) 16 Jun 2021 12:28:03
Sloth out of the Goonies to play Wayne Rooney.
Bongo film star Ben Dover to play John Terry
Disgraced television personality Rolf Harris to play Karim Benzema.


5.) 16 Jun 2021 12:44:37
Clint Eastwood to play Virgil coz they are both so cool.


6.) 16 Jun 2021 13:01:53
Alisson - Pedro Pascal
Alexander-Arnold - Anthony Mackie
Matip - Will Smith
Van Dijk - Dwayne Johnson
Robertson - James McAvoy
Fabinho - Samuel L Jackson (shouting tackled you mother …. )
Henderson - Chris Evans
Wijnaldum - Kevin Hart

Klopp's gone for the fab 4! Be interesting to see how they line up.

Crazy German b@$! @&d! 😁.


2.) 08 Nov 2020 16:24:04
Looks to me like a soak up the pressure and hit them with pacy counter attacks. 3 really pacy forwards with firmino pulling the strings behind them. Hendo, Trent and Robbo to provide accurate long passes to the front 3. Should be fun at least.


3.) 08 Nov 2020 17:33:21
VAR is at it again.


4.) 08 Nov 2020 18:26:57
Draw at the ethiad, that's a decent result. I'm happy with that.


5.) 08 Nov 2020 18:30:22
A would agree with that mate so far so good without big virgil bring on the Leicester will fab be ba k for that and whet about thiago?


6.) 08 Nov 2020 15:56:48
Bobby behind Jota, Salah and Mane.

Brave. Hopefully it'll work out. I don't think the front 4 has really clicked for us yet.


7.) 08 Nov 2020 19:28:08
We're a final ball away from beating these.


8.) 08 Nov 2020 21:36:56
Matip taking one for the team especially on KFB

For what its worth, here's my take on transfers, hopefully it'll calm some people down. Consistently successful teams in recent times (bayern, juve, Barcelona) have built a strong squad and then generally stuck with it, only signing players to either replace ageing ones or if a superstar suddenly becomes available, mixed with young signings, and it has led to consistent success. For the l last couple of years, we've signed mostly young players, but if you look at our squad, we only have 2 outfield players over 30, and they're our captain and vice captain, so we haven't had to replace ageing players, and finances have dictated that we haven't signed any available superstars (although the thiago pursuit would probably fall into this category) . And what has this transfer strategy yielded in the last 2 years? Only the most successful 2 years in the last 30+ years! We've signed a good lb for the squad, and have only sold lovren from the 1st team squad, so I would say we're even stronger than last season, when we absolutely romped it. There's a lot to be said for stability.

We are weak the back as its evident we are leaking goals. One thing that separated us from the city last season was our defense. We need to add a top-class Center back. Klopp's interest in Diego Carlos indicates it. I would also like to see a wide player coming in. Preferably a winger. Big daddy Divock is simply not good enough and although I do rate Shaqiri. he is not going to play more than 10 games a season.

But Klopp wanted signings. that's clear.


2.) 15 Sep 2020 11:26:45
Good post mate. In the last year or so we've now signed Adrian (GK), Pitaluga (GK), Van den Berg (CB), Tsimiskas (LB), Elliott (AM/ RW) and Minamino (AM/ CF/ LW/ RW) .

If those 6 players had cost £120m people would be happy. The only reason there is any moaning is because we got them all for less than £30m.

Kelleher, Hoever, Williams, Phillips, Koumetio, Jones, Grujic, Wilson and Brewster all coming from the academy or loan spells might also end up like new signings as they're all still here as it stands.

Great Post rugby.

This is perhaps the best team we have ever had. In league points it is.

Champions league
European Super cup
Club world cup
Premier league.

What? These boys need improving? Why? To play the martians for the solar system cup?


4.) 15 Sep 2020 13:44:03
Lol HMB, you couldn't be more correct mate.


5.) 15 Sep 2020 16:26:17
Tyrion, how are we weak at the back? It is basically the same defence from last season but for Lovren, who left because he was fourth choice and couldn't get game time but we have strengthened at LB with a Greek international.

We may have got a touch complacent and/ or ring rusty but by your own admission that same defence was the difference between City and us last season.


6.) 15 Sep 2020 16:31:54
Tyrion Lannister, in the same comment you state we are weak at the back and state we won the league because of how good our defence was.? It hasn't changed. Unless you believe Lovren was the rock holding everything together 😅.


7.) 15 Sep 2020 17:35:45
Exactly HMB. Mr 72 Million Pounds didn't exactly do much against Brighton did he? Not saying he won't come good, but too many people just see these massive price-tags and think, "rubbish! He must be ace! Why didn't we sign him? " But the fact is there's a million armchair experts and most of these have probably never seen Havertz play, for example. Our squad really doesn't need a lot in the way of additions.
Plus, you're forgetting the U23 side that beat Everton on Sunday, without even using any of the players you mentioned. (except Kelleher, who was outstanding btw)


8.) 15 Sep 2020 18:21:55
LOL sorry for the swear word, Eds. Not sure 'rubbish' is an accurate synonym though. Next time I'll keep it cleaner and choose my expletives more carefully. :)


9.) 15 Sep 2020 18:30:43
It's embarrassing how some folks just want a transfer for the sake of having a transfer.
We're weak at the back - that's a corker!


10.) 15 Sep 2020 19:53:41
My fellow (Jurgen) Meister, English fans have been brainwashed for years to believe that a team that splashes the cash will win or compete for titles whereas the team that does not, will automatically struggle. The media is to blame for such rhetoric cos in other countries, people don't really think that way.

Here a thing: Cheslea spent over 200m after they won the title with Conte. What happened the next season, they did not even make the top 4. Klopp signs virtually nobody last summer and we completely crush the league. This happened over the past 2/ 3 years, not 20/ 30 years YET nobody seems to learn anything. Signings doesn't guarantee success and at the same time, NOT making signings guarantees does not guarantee failure. Pretty simple stuff, really.

Hi eds. Sorry to ask another question about "home grown", but I don't think this has been asked yet, and it's something that even football manager hasn't taught me! If an English club signs an 18 year old European player, and then sends him out on loan to a European club, does the year on loan count as trained by the club, association or does it indeed count as being trained by the loan club? And if it does count, are there limits or could you feasibly loan him out for 3 years and have him return as a home grown player? Logic says it wouldn't be counted, but logic sometimes doesn't come into it with football rules!

Thanks, and hope you're all keeping safe and well and happy.

Rugby Parker

{Ed002's Note - No, on loan does not count for credit as you suggest. Three years in England or Wales before 21.}

Cheers ed, much appreciated as always.

I think people are missing an obvious issue when valuing transfers. The players we are after are generally among the best players at their current team, or at least regular starters. The players we are trying to sell are players with no future with us, and we're actively trying to get them off the books. We can demand top dollar for our manes and salahs because we don't want to lose them, same as Brighton don't want to lose bissouma/ rbl didn't want to lose konate. We can't do that with fringe players because, eventually, we'll either be stuck with them not playing, or running their contract down. If a player is marked for selling, we should take the best offer received and get some money in and let these boys continue their career elsewhere.

Rangers and Celtic leaving would destroy Scottish football, sadly. Any money in the Scottish game is there because of the marketability of the old firm. Take them out, and it would eventually become equivalent of the Irish leagues. I wouldn't care, as I only support my home team because its my home team, but I wouldn't be surprised if teams folded without the old firm. As for the old firm, if they survived the first couple of years in the prem, you'd then be looking at a "big 8" instead of the big 6,such is the fan base and stadium size of the Glasgow teams.

One of the issues to consider with Philips is that replacing him with an HG defender who is any better than him is unlikely with the funds he would generate by selling him. I think he's nailed on to be the 4th cb (not including fabinho), I'd say its more likely that Matip could go if there's any interest, as he would be easier to replace, as he's not HG and would fetch more money.

Hope Wilson gets on in the 2nd half, then maybe Neco can put a good cross in Fer'arry.

He's pretty damn good, to be fair. The boy must have ice in his veins to make his first international start in that game and play as well as he did.

Do you think Vardy has invested in that football team so that the end of his Hollywood movie isn't Leicester blowing their chance at a CL spot? :)
