Ed002, you keep saying Barcelona will not buy Countinho next summer and that this is effectively his only chance to go. Can you explain why this is? -sorry if I have missed the explanation previously. I couldn't find anything on the search function.


{Ed002's Note - I have said it once as far as I recall. I am not sure where I said "this is effectively his only chance to go" - perhaps you can point that out.}

1.) 09 Aug 2017 22:38:29
Not in so many words. On the rumours page ed002 said he (PC) would need to understand ruling out his chance of moving to Barcelona and that he very much doubted Barcelona would resume interest next summer.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 22:45:16
Basically, Barcelona will want to bring in new faces to offset the loss of Neymar this summer, not next summer, because they're a side that expect to regularly win their domestic league and challenge for the Champions League. They don't do "transition" or "rebuilding" seasons.

So if they can't get Coutinho this season, they'll get someone else, which somewhat diminishes the likelihood of them still needing Coutinho next summer.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 23:03:46
So Barcelona won't buy anyone next summer to replace Iniesta when it is widely reported they want Coutinho to replace him not Neymar? Of course they'll be back for him and if they're not he'll go to Madrid. Either way I'm sure he'll be quite happy.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 23:21:50
Barca are struggling financially.

they're not the force once they were neither have got resources or squad like Madrid.

Whatever money they got from neymar, they would be spending both on neymar replacement and iniesta.

by the way wasn't ED2 who said that, it was macca who said that it's now or never for couts to Barca.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 11:12:54
Coz they will turn their attentions to some other player and they are done on that position. Why would Barcelona wait an year to make Liverpool happy? They want players for this season and not next season!

With these Mbappe rumours seemingly everywhere, could it be a return to the old favourite, the smokescreen? It's been a while, but I love a good smokescreen.

Could it be covering our pursuit of another Monacco player? Or someone else's pursuit of Mbappe? Either way-welcome back to the smokescreen. I hope we see you again soon.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 07:03:40
we have moved from smokescreens to tapping up and releasing news to the press, keep up man. haha.

Anybody else seen this Welsh lad ripping it up for club and county? Think his name is Joe something? Anyway, he looks quality and can't stop scoring. Any chance of Jurgen having a look?


1.) 16 Oct 2016 10:33:53
Pleased for him. Always had a great attitude for us. Good luck to the guy.

2.) 16 Oct 2016 11:28:01
Agreed, Joe was always good around the squad, got on with his job without complaining too much when not being played and seemed to be a good professional. Good luck to him in his future career.

3.) 17 Oct 2016 00:07:54
I have never had anything against the lad. In fact, he had his fair share of good games for us especially vs City where Yaya Toure could never ever deal with him. I'm happy he's tearing it up at Stoke as he deserves it due to his, attitude and work ethic, especially if he's doing it vs Utd every time.

I like Ibe as much as anyone and really want to see him play and fulfill his immense potential, but do people honestly think he played that well last night? He had the chance where he hit the post, which was a chance he created from nothing, so fair play, but other than that what did he do so well? Redknapp was on about how he ran at people and all the SlySports pundits went on about his pace but he virtually never tried to go past oviedo on the outside, even when there was clear space behind him several times. Also, the number of times, with the number different players Ibe miss placed a pass or even a thrown in was scary. Why do people over hype young players every single time? Ibe has every chance of being top quality, but saying he was our best player last night or over hyping how well he played surely can't help him develop. To be fair though, I thought all this about Raheem and look how he's turned out.


{Ed001's Note - he wasn't given the ball enough to judge him. As for saying there was space, there were very few opportunities to run at Oviedo after he tore him to shreds the first couple of times. Everton doubled or trebled up on him as soon as the ball went to him.}

1.) 08 Feb 2015 07:59:01
Even in the second half, it appeared to me that there were a hand full of occasions where Ibe got onto the ball, Oviedo was pushed forward and there was space to knock the ball behind him and run into it, if Ibe really has this blistering pace Sly's pundits wouldn't shut up about.

{Ed001's Note - he barely got the ball in the second half, despite making himself available constantly, so I think you are overegging it mate.}

2.) Think he had 94% pass completion rate so I'm happy enough with that side of his game as quite a few were pass into danger areas.

3.) ED001 is right, after the first few times, the space wasn't there, Besic would come across, leaving Gerrard who he was comfortable with all night, and Jags Narrowed the distance between himself and Oviedo. This created a lot more room in the centre of the park, but we weren't good enough to exploit it.

In the second half Ibe had to play much deeper, I think Lucas goign off really changed our strategy we weren't as ''gung ho'' going forward with Allen there. There were numerous times Ibe was running back covering Can, who I thought played well, but not to his previous standards, he gave away a fair bit of possession. I don't think you can blam Ibe for worrying about his defensive duties

4.) 08 Feb 2015 20:24:03
Welcome to first team football in the Premier League. I remember he set up Coutinho against QPR last season. He had a positive preseason I thought as well, then his time at Birmingham and especially Derby seem to have helped him stride onwards.

He's a great athlete and has an attacking mind, he's only 19 and has a great physical presence, he just needs games in the Premier League to adapt to the pace and standard and I think we have a genuine young gun ready to burst on the scene any moment.

He was very positive in a somewhat negative game yesterday, I was very proud of his performance as a fan. He was very nearly the difference when he cracked the paint off the metal with his shot.

Not sure what some of my fellow reds expect from someone so young and raw. Was his performance positive? Yes, in my eyes. Will he get better? Given the chance, no doubt about it. Let the lad grow into the shirt and build understandings and partnerships around him. I think is the level headed approach.

5.) Ibe had a decent game and atimes, ws the only one trying to make forard runs in the Everton`s territory. He`s learning and will only get better with proper coaching and management.

Just like to share my view on Sunday as people have touched on my main point but not thoroughly. We struggled because of our midfield, or complete and utter lack of one. Henderson always seemed to be out wide, gerrard inline with, or behind the centre backs and lucas ball watching/under Harry Potters invisibility cloak. This allowed southampton complete controll to nick the ball off the front men and run straight at the defence virtually untouched. The lack of a midfield also reduced our outboard with lovren and gerrard regularly lumping it long. Finally, whenever Manquillo or Johnson or even Sterling got wide with the ball they seemed to always turn inside to the southampton comtrolled middle making it hard to supply cout and studge. We need to play the likes of Can against city or the same will happen again, and I don't see Silva Toure and Nasri struggling to get past Skrtel and Gerrard. Can plays, we stand a chance, Lucas plays we dont. Also, Hendo needs to learn to get back central, like he was last season, when the opposition have the ball to help cover the defense and Sterling/Johnson/Manquillo/Moreno need to have confidence to run at men wide to give us an outboard.


{Ed002's Note - Were these people who touched on your main point working for the BBC in the 1970s?}

1.) I thought we were playing a sorta 4411 to start, with hendo on the right and sterling pushed up a little higher.

2.) 19 Aug 2014 10:16:05
Henderson was playing on the right because he was told to.

I think he's better centrally though.

3.) 19 Aug 2014 10:37:52
All from past 2 months, I was with Ed01, Crying to get a top class DM. didn't happen. The Results were shown immediately.
Any Team with pace through the middle would get pass Gerrard and Co with ease, Putting pressure on Back 4.

4.) 19 Aug 2014 10:45:37
So easy when you're sat in an armchair at home haha. Henderson was told to play out wide, I get your point about Lucas amd Gerrard, but you have to understand they are told to play there by the manager. Rodgers obviously thought it best to play two holding midfielders. Maybe Can isn't quite ready, who knows. Hopefully it was more first-game nerves than anything.

6.) 19 Aug 2014 12:20:37
Stuie Boy

If you could, When you play with 2 holding DM, You should actually stop the opposition's attack through the middle. Which didn't happen.
Saints controlled our midfield Inspite of 2 holding DM

7.) Credit where credits due though, southamptons midfield trio were a class act

8.) Southampton will end up finishing in the top ten again this year if they keep Schneiderlin, Wanyama and Tadic for 12 months. Forster will be good for them as well

9.) 20 Aug 2014 07:59:28
Saying "Brendan told them to play there" changes nothing. Boom got it spot on. How can we play lucas and stevie to cover the back four and have no cover for the back four? They both disappeared for long stretches. Henderson may aell have been told to play right mid but if Rogers is this great tactician everyone heralds him as how did he not spot the issue and simply move hendo inside? My point is the same, play yhis same 11 with the same tactics against City and Silva and Toure will have a field day.

Barkley showed that potential last night. dirty barstool. Typical toffee.

Neither allen or lucas are up to taking us to the next level (champions league and title contention) we need to find 2 center mids to play behind coutinhio as our ideal midfield seen as Gerrard probably only has 2/3 more years. This middle three behind suarez sturridge and sterling/ a new signing will be a title contending team in 2 years max

Could also be a replacement for Jose Fonte? They never managed to get one in January did they.


{Ed001's Note - Jack Stephens was already earmarked as Fonte's replacement, that was why they wanted Fonte to stay one more year to help Stephens get ready. They look to buy the replacements a year or more ahead, so that they have time to bed in. Romeu was brought in to replace Wanyama, but Wanyama was not sold immediately, as a for instance.}

I'll save you some time, we won't pick up their players from corners and apparently we are incapable of "winning or learning" when it comes to this particular point. We haven't been able to defend properly since Rafa left really.

Watford's last goal wasn't offside as the lad who put it in was inline with the ball as it was played to him, hence not offside.

Just ask Suarez, you forced them to sell him for less than we would have wanted.

Agreed Ed001. I guess he means because Sergio Biscuits wears 6, Coutinho playing deep would make him a 6 also. Even if we treat that comment how it was intended to be taken, I can't see how Barcelona could have seen Countinho playing on our left-wing and thought "He looks like a replacement for Buscuits".
