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.


{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

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.


{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.


{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



13 Aug 2013 06:40:34
Eds, I assume the ESPN rumour is of their usual reliability, surely we wouldn't pay 35mil for Willian? {Ed002's Note - They will be running with a story that is from elsewhere. As I have said, I am not aware of any interest in Willian from Liverpool at this time.}


1.) In our dreams

2.) If you look at his goal return its far from good and there are better options out there for half the price being mentioned.

Iker Muniain
Erik Lamela

3.) 13 Aug 2013 10:27:31
I saw him playing in the CL last season and he was spectacular, however £35m is way too much. £20-23m would be fair, I'm sure he'd shine at Liverpool and partnering up with Coutinho wouldn't hurt. Adding Willian, a solid CB and LB and it just might persuade Suarez that we'll be a top 4 team this season. {Ed002's Note - A bid of just under €40M has already been rejected.}

4.) Was that €40M bid before or after the Anzhi situation developed? Thanks. {Ed002's Note - It was 10 days ago when Anzhi were already looking to start to restructure their wage budget. It is also irrelevant to what they are asking for, although as we get closer to the window closing they will possibly be accepting less. There is interest in Willian from elsewhere and a prospective deal might just include a player or two on loan for the 2014-2015 season - and a lower cash sale.}

5.) Was that 40m offer from Man City Ed? {Ed002's Note - It was less than €40M and it was from Manchester City. It seems they have since dropped their interest - at least for now - after it was rejected.}

6.) We are aiming too high, we are not a big club anymore. Nobody of any stature/class wants to play for LFC.

7.) 40 million for a striker whos scored 40 goals in 274 appearances hardly seems worth it mind you a majority of his goals came from the ukrainian league which people were already concerned about when we were interested in Micky and he scored 25 goals whilst Willian scored 2 in his league 1 in the domestic cup and 4 in europe I really don't think he'd be worth it.

8.) 13 Aug 2013 17:10:37
Ed02 do you think there is any possibility Liverpool go for him or is he out of our reach? {Ed002's Note - I can't say - but it would cost a great deal of money.}

9.) 13 Aug 2013 17:42:08
We already have Coutinho.

10.) The Times Tony Barrett who so far has been fairly on the ball, is saying we have moved for him now.

11.) 13 Aug 2013 22:58:52
Ben smith and tony barrett say we are interested

On the previous post re player of the year shortlist. If we judged a player on their value to the team and points gained, as well as salah, De bruyne, surely de gea is up there? The mancs would be fighting for 6th without him.


1.) 09 Mar 2018 06:10:26
I actually think they would be lower, I think there’s at least 15 games a season when he’s by far their outstanding player on the pitch. Over another keeper I reckon he’s worth 15-20 points for them. Just thinking CP; arsenal and Liverpool games. That’s 7 points he’s got them when they deserved zero.



01 Mar 2018 09:05:24
If I gave my answer to the question who my favourite premier league player is of all time, you'd think I was a teenager. I'm 45 years old and saw my first game at anfield in 1979. I've seen some amazing players and characters. That said, I'm all gaga over one Roberto firmino. Passion, desire, skill, Ability and most important from a scouse point of view, a cracking sense of humour. DO NOT SELL!


1.) 01 Mar 2018 09:58:42
I completely agree mate Firmino for me too.

2.) 01 Mar 2018 10:01:54
I read earlier that Firmino has completed twice as many tackles (36) as Paul Pogba has (18) this season! His defensive contribution is often forgotten because of his flair and magic. He is my favourite player too mate. Probably not the best in the Premier League as you'd have to give that to Giggs i think for what he achieved in the competition as much as his ability, but Firmino is definitely my personal favourite. He could retire as a Liverpool legend one day in my opinion. He's got everything.

3.) 01 Mar 2018 10:07:15
Has to be fowler for me. Bobby is doing really well tho this season which is a pleasant surprise as he has already out scored my season prediction.

4.) 01 Mar 2018 10:21:18
Another few seasons and he will become a great. I imagine the World Cup could make a huge impact on his value, especially when he outshines neymar and coutinho. Let's hope he's more a Lucas/ xabi to a Suarez/ coutinho.

5.) 01 Mar 2018 10:39:11
Giggs played for a side at the top end of his whole career, rather than being any sort of stand out player, imo.

6.) 01 Mar 2018 10:54:35
will be tough to outshine Neymar and Coutinho from the bench though! He is not first choice, Gabriel Jesus is.

7.) 01 Mar 2018 11:00:45
I see your point JT, but Giggs was arguably the best player at Man United during that time too. The only better individuals to play alongside him were Cantona, Ronaldo and Ferdinand in my opinion. They couldn't match his longevity remotely though.

It goes without saying though, Giggs was very fortunate to play in a great team for so long. But then don't you have to credit the player for never looking remotely out of place there across two decades? It's a tough argument that can go either way really. Did he help make United great, or did United help make him great. I think it was a mutual partnership if I'm honest. Still hate Giggs though because he constantly turned his back on my ancestral country to blow Fergie's trumpet.

{Ed001's Note - Scholes?? Keane?}

8.) 01 Mar 2018 10:49:28
Giggs? I was referring to ability plus character etc. Not just a list of titles as part of a pretty impressive squad it pains me to say. Giggs was a top player no doubt. But Bobby makes me shake my head in disbelief and admiration almost every game. He is the one player we have that I would put a not for sale sign on. I would also really miss his goal. celebrations. he's also ridiculously unselfish.

9.) 01 Mar 2018 11:16:25
Not for me Ed001. Scholes couldn't tackle, and Keane was a better leader than player. If you think about what a winger needs, Giggs had it all, as did Ronaldo Think about what a centre back needs and Ferdinand had it all. Think about what an attacking midfielder/ second striker needs and Contona had it all. That's why i have them as the best individuals. As players, they had no weaknesses that i ever saw.

Keane lacked technical ability which is vital for any footballer, and Scholes lacked tackling which is critical in midfield and why he got sent off so much. Giggs lacked nothing he needed to be a good winger though. He could dribble, he could cross, he could shoot, he could pass and he had pace to burn.

That's my logic anyway. No worries if you don't agree!

{Ed001's Note - Scholes could tackle but he got away with nasty fouls by pretending not to be able to. Keane was a far better player than you give him credit for. He certainly did not lack technical ability at all, he was also an excellent centre back. Giggs was not in the same league imo. He struggled with his passing and crossing, particularly in his early days.}

10.) 01 Mar 2018 11:32:37
I forgot about Schmiechal actually. I think it's fair to say he had every attribute a keeper needs, would you agree Ed001?

If i tell you who i thought Man United's best midfielder was of the last 20 years, I'm sure I'll be laughed at again, but i thought Carrick was better than Scholes or Keane. United were good with Scholes and Keane, but didn't really compete in Europe regularly despite it being quite weak aside from the Italian teams. Carrick took them up a level though and with him they were the strongest rivals to the great Barcelona team in a period where Inter Milan, Chelsea, Bayern Munich etc were also very strong. I don't even think Man United fans appreciate how good Carrick has been for them in the last 10 years. He would've made the difference for England if they'd let go of trying to put Lampard and Gerrard in the same team. Carrick played against Germany in Berlin when England beat them 2-1 around 2008-ish and he was Man of the Match. Then he barely got picked again inexplicably, until he refused call up after Capello didn't even play him once in the 2010 WC. I don't think anyone except Ferguson knew how good he was. He could do everything Scholes could, but he could read the game and tackle as well!

Pelters in 3, 2, 1-.

{Ed001's Note - Scmeichel was certainly excellent and the backbone to their team. Carrick was good but not Scholes or Keane good.}

11.) 01 Mar 2018 12:09:54
Every time i watched Carrick he was like a Rolls Royce, Ed. I think that might just be why i rate highest in a player; somebody who can make things look easy. That would explain why i rate the likes of Alonso and Carrick so highly. I've never really been an advicate of midfielders flying around the pitch jumping into tackles and being all action, but it is much more exciting to watch. I guess this is why football is a beautiful game. There are so many great players and everyone has their own preferences and opinions, which make discussion so interesting.

Look at other sports. Golf? Tiger Woods. Tennis? Roger Federer. Darts? Phil Taylor. F1? Michael Schumacher.

Only in football do you get so much debate. In other sports there always seems to be a clear stand out performer, but football can be interpreted in so many different ways because it is the most complex, popular team sport and there are so many ways to play the game.

Thanks for not just rubbishing my view on Carrick though Ed. If Scholes could tackle but just wanted to be nasty that is a shame, because he's done himself a disservice because history will remember him as a world class player who was rash in the tackle and got too many suspension's. I checked the figures and he is 5th most booked player in Premier League history with 97, 1st most booked in the Champions league with 32, and also got 4 red cards too! It's my only thing against him or else I'd say he was better than Carrick because his passing range was better and he couldn't half catch a volley on the sweet spot. I only had Carrick ahead because he offered more protection to his defenders than Scholes, and could pass better than Keane.

12.) 01 Mar 2018 12:19:49
We need to challenge the title next season or else they will move to another club, who will do it!

13.) 01 Mar 2018 12:37:13
I think Roy Keane is exactly what a lot of teams are missing now. He had the ability to do pretty much everything well, whilst driving his team and making sure they knew if they let the team down. Maybe over the top sometimes, but his ability to lead and make players want to give everything is what I think seems to be missing from the top premiership teams now. There’s not many real leaders left.

I think the whole show around his personality blinds people to how good a player he was. I read that Kenny saw how good he was before he moved to Utd as he desperately tried to sign him for Blackburn.

I would love a prime Keane in our midfield right now. Would you Ed?

14.) 01 Mar 2018 12:43:02
Cantona and Giggs were fantastic footballers but To say there were no weaknesses in those players games is being a bit easy on them. Cantonas weakness was that he was a hothead, he was a red card waiting to happen if things didn't go his way, and im not just referring to his kung fu kick.
Giggs is remembered in such a biased fashion, he had at least four or five years of average output at what should have been his peak years, it wasnt until he reached his 30's and adapted his game to play deeper that all this kudos came his way, i mean the guy won player of the year 2009 despite starting 11 games in the league which just smacked of him being rewarded for being ryan giggs rather than what he produced on a football pitch.

15.) 01 Mar 2018 12:48:10
Harry, next year is our year mate! I'm sure of it 👀.

16.) 01 Mar 2018 13:00:37
I agree with you smplfc. Although i think Keane was a touch over rated as an individual, I have always argued that he is the best captain of the Premier League Era for what he git out of his team mates. He is exactly what we are missing, for a start! He might be a total buffoon on the tele, and really bitter towards Liverpool, but he was the perfect leader and excellent at game management.

Semi by the sea, i think overall you were a little bit harsh on Giggs (when you play 20 years at the top, you have to expect the odd blip) but you are spot on about that 2009 award. It was a bit of a sham to be quite honest. He was well past his best by then and it was a bit like an early retirement present wasn't it 🤔.

17.) 01 Mar 2018 15:45:50
Gigs played for united. What are you talking about! Could never, will never pick a utd player. Gigs wasn't even their best player, Scholes was.

I wish to revise my list as I focused my attention on past players and forgot about Firmino.


18.) 01 Mar 2018 17:23:16
It was almost a lifetime achievement award for services rendered to football and manchester united, but i do concede that despite a few blemishes giggs was for the most part a great footballer and one of the best the premier league has seen.

19.) 01 Mar 2018 23:27:28
SS funny you just said AND I quote ;)
'What are you talking about! Could never, will never pick a utd player' yet you went and picked Owen! lol did he not play for utd?! You put 'him' over Torres? over Alonso (your favourite player out of him and Gerrard), Hyypia, Carragher, Suarez, Sturridge, Risse, Kuyt, Agger, Coutinho the list goes on. You go on about never picking a utd player and you just did, over Liverpool players who did some great things for us.



23 Feb 2018 05:31:41
Not a stats guy at all, and wouldn't even know how to find out. But, I'd love if someone could work out how many points De Gea has saved for ManU this season. What I mean by that is, if they had any other keeper in the league, can you generally look at a game and say "with Migs or anyone else, they'd have lost/ drawn that game? "
I'm sure you could look at a save, or string of them, that have got them a point or 3, and put that down to the man between the sticks.
My guess is that if you swapped DDG for Migs/ Karius, we'd be maybe 6 points ahead of them.
Clearly I'm bored. Someone do the numbers (subjective i know) and brighten my day :)


1.) 23 Feb 2018 08:12:55
It is a relatively pointless debate though. We'd be much lower without Salah, but it's irrelevant because we have Salah. Every team has a best player who digs them out. For Man U, that just happens to be their goal keeper.

He is probably worth 20 point a season to them at least, but what is Salah worth to us? What is De Bruyne worth to City? Kane to Spurs? Kante to Chelsea? Maybe De Gea is worth even more than most other star players because he is the best shot stopper in the world and United concede a lot of shots due to a weak midfield (Pogba, Carrick, Herrera, Fellaini etc) shocking full backs (Young, Darmian, Shaw and Valencia) and a few very average centre backs in Smalling, Rojo and Lindelof.

Matic doesn't have the legs to do it by himself, and Jones and Bailly are forever injured nowadays. Therefore De Gea is propping up the base of the entire team. So yeah, he probably is the most vital player to his particular team in the whole division. But the fact is, he plays for Man U right now and it's his job to save them points. Hopefully he goes to Real Madrid in the summer though because I'm bored of hearing how good United are, and i think it'll all come crashing down without him. Their argument would be, that they could reinvest his transfer fee and salary to improve the team overall though. So it's impossible to say they will definitely struggle without him.

2.) 23 Feb 2018 08:30:00
According to the premier leagues official numbers Salah's goals has given Liverpool an extra 14 points so far this season, compared to 12 because of Harry Kane's goals and only 7 points for Aguero's goals.

In my opinion any team would struggle a bit in the start if they lose the best goalkeeper in the world! My opinion about de Gea has nothing to do with the Sevilla game because de Gea has been pulling off unbelievable saves for 5 years now consistently and makes very very few mistakes.

Real Madrid are looking at Courtois too, but if i was a Real Madrid scout there is no chance i would say Courtois is of a similar level to de Gea because he clearly isn't even close and has a few howlers in him. If de Gea leaves Manchester United they will probably be like 8-10 points off if the don't replace him with Alisson or Oblak. Every goalkeeper is supposed to save a lot of the shots he faces, it's their job but the difference is de Gea saves shots fans and players already started celebrating a goal in their minds. He is unbelievable! What makes me think he is so good is also probably aided by the fact Mignolet have been costing us 8-10 points a season for 4-5 years now so its tough thinking a Manchester United player is this good. heh.

3.) 23 Feb 2018 10:13:55
Nostradamus, i agree with most of what you say, but the Premier Leagues official numbers literally only factor in goals though. They don't factor in that World class bit of skill that lifts the whole stadium, or the goal created or started by their magic, or the space their team mates had because 3 players were marking the star man.

There are too many subjectivities and variables to accurately put into numbers how many points a player is worth to a team. You can only speculate or guess. From what I've seen of De Gea for example, he has kept Man U in the game multiple times at a single goal ahead. That will only be measured as him saving them 2 points. But if that one goal had gone in, it might've given the other team the confidence to score again costing United all 3 points. Then there is the confidence that he gives his defenders, which reduces the mistakes they make by panicking. How do you measure that? Or what about the saves he makes at 0-0 that stop a team from being able to defend a lead? If United go on to win that game 3-0 they might say he hasn't saved them any points because Man U would've won 3-1 anyway. That isn't how football works though. That miracle save at 0-0 might have been worth all 3 points.

You can't measure how much an individual is worth with statistics. You can only take a stab in the dark hence why I'm saying this debate is irrelevant and we should just accept that every team has a star man who is important to them. De Gea is United's most important player and i THINK he's worth 20+ points a season with all the subjectivities and variables factored in. That is a total guess though. Statistically he's probably only worth 10 points a season. Salah statistically is probably worth 15, but I'd say he is also worth more like 20+. The thing is though, this is all based on the assumption that the player who replaced them would have no positive impact of their own. If you then deduct the amount of points a slightly lesser quality replacement would be worth, the very best players are probably only worth an EXTRA 5 points (individually) over a whole season. But football is all about fine margins. 5 points can be the difference that turns you from top half to top 6, from top 6 to top 4, from top 4 to title challenger, or challenger to victor.

So regardless of what the Premier League website says, you simply cannot put a definitive points total on what these individuals are worth. You can only guess and everyone's guess will be different. There is too much going on in the background that cannot be quantified.

4.) 23 Feb 2018 10:34:29
This is just a wish fulfillment exercise to have a dig at Utd and Mourinho. The only thing that counts is that they are, currently, doing better than us. We can make all the excuses we want (transfer spending, DDG etc) but we're behind them.

The good news is that it's within our power to change that in the next month or so.

5.) 23 Feb 2018 10:50:08
Agree with your points as well, MK and Nostradamus. It is fundamentally, a pointless debate. The PL stats say what they say BUT it lacks any form of nuance and perspective, things that are being shown in both of you's posts and that pints to the fact that no one knows how we would fair w/ o Salah or how Utd would fair w/ o DDG precisely, none of which can be weighted. It is all based on assumptions, things that lack nuance and that can be debunked by making other assumptions.

Statistically he has saved 18.36 points, rounded down to 18. Not a bad return.

Respect to Feyenord fans. Lighting their phones and singing YNWA on the sixth anniversary of the passing of Brad Jones' son.
Also very good to see that Brad's form has been very good for them and he's even in line for a recall to the national team.


{Ed0333's Note - what a touching gesture by the Feyenoord fans. Thanks for sharing Burkeyboy I was not aware of that.

Football can bring out the worst in some fans at times, but it is things like this that restores my faith in football (and any sport for that matter) being something that brings out the best in people. Along with Ed, I was unaware, so this has made my day! Thanks Burkeyboy.

Very nice to read that about Feyenord fans, awful situation for him and his wife to experience - RIP.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 07:58:10
What a class move by the fans. Cheers for that burkeyboy.

Very good bit of news to hear there, good acts in football these days are rare so it's nice to hear when something like this does happen, thanks burkeyboy.

Got to be one of my favourite recent moments in football when Brad saved that penalty against West Ham having come on after Reina’s red card.

To even play so soon after his tragic situation was v brave; the point to the sky and the players gathering round him brought tears to my eyes.

A credit to the club and and that was a class gesture by the Feyenord fans YNWA.

Missed the first 20 minutes of the game, but what I noticed straight away was the intensity with which Gini was playing. I know he's be slammed on here a fair bit lately, but from what I saw of the first half, he was excellent.
I also think TAA is clearly our best RB. He doesn't seem to get caught out positionally as much as Gomez and he can deliver a great cross.
Also, great cover and block from VVD late in the game to keep the clean sheet.

Wouldn’t say he was excellent but did put himself about more than usual.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 05:28:24
He was far more active and combatative then usual and really contributed to the midfield performance - he needs to be producing performances like that consistently.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 06:37:00
I thought he was brilliant too.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 07:24:59
I came on this morning to echo this. People are quick to critisize, and I realise that one game does not a player make, but a good performance should always be praised, no matter who gave it.

5.) 15 Feb 2018 08:31:18
Gomez is not even a right back, he just filling in this season an gaining experience as clyne injured, hope he gets chances at centre back that's were his future lies.

6.) 15 Feb 2018 09:44:39
Agree, Wini is well suited to the European games. He really has everything in his locker which is frustrating sometimes as he is either lazy or lacks confidence. Technically excellent, fast, strong and has a goal in him. at home anyway!

I think he is hard done by with some of the comments on here .

7.) 15 Feb 2018 12:28:51
They were all excellent.

8.) 15 Feb 2018 13:49:59
Gini plays amazing once every 4 or 5 games, luckily this was one of those xD he'll be missing for the next few if on the pitch we won’t realize he actually is.

Really needs to sort his consistency out and he would be a decent player.

Sounds like a crack team of SAS soldiers waiting for the nod to jump aboard a Hercules and rescue British hostages from Libya :)

Agree hailstones, I was hoping he'd get some first team minutes this season.

Not a bad idea though Redsteve222. If we had an in-house hairdresser, imagine the style of player we could attract?

I think Spurs have been our 2 hardest games this season.

Over the top knee jerk reactions or what? Listen to yourselves. TAA has been pretty solid this season. He was done by rashford first goal, lovren helped put him in that position and the experienced defender didn't exactly help on the second goal.

How an expensively assembled squad of fantastic talent, on paper, can give up 68% possession at home and be elated is beyond me. When spurs came to anfield and dominated us, I was very disappointed, despite gaining a point. Utd had 2 shots on target and 1 corner. I'd rather finish 4th than 2nd and have to watch that drivel week in, week out.

Someone needs to tell Clyne that his left leg is allowed to kick the ball.

I don't even read the headlines on there, just scan where it's from first before wasting my time. Too much from HITC, Daily Star etc.
