Hi Eds, not seen it mentioned for a while now. Where do we stand with regards to recruiting more firepower up top?

I don't for one second think Pulisic is a realistic option and you have answered this sufficiently. I'm more inclined to believe the Azmoun or Promes rumours. Azmoun is only contracted for 2 more years, and Promes is openly available for an albeit hefty price tag. Scrolled right down the page and couldn't find any recent updates. My apologies if I am asking you to repeat yourselves.

MK Scouser

{Ed001's Note - why believe any? Azmoun has been watched, but that's all.}

Heard a rumour this morning that we may make a last minute push for Leeds left back, Charlie Taylor.

No idea how true this is, just got talking to the cashier in the petrol station and he seemed adamant.

MK Scouser

{Ed002's Note - As I said previously I would not totally discount it. However, Leeds did get a significant offer from another EPL side yesterday.}


1.) 31 Aug 2016 09:37:17
Was it Everton ed.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


2.) 31 Aug 2016 09:58:20
I believe he might end up on Merseyside playing for the team in blue.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 09:58:41
He got destroyed by Oliver Burke on Saturday. the 19 year old who just left forest. It's Burke we should have got.


4.) 31 Aug 2016 11:02:10
Burke looks great, but unless it was a buy then loan he wouldn't have played.


5.) 31 Aug 2016 11:18:59
I think Klopp made a conscious decision quite some time back ago to not go for a left back (after the Chilwell botching), because he trusts Milner enough to do an adequate job in the position. It also frees up one place in an already crowded midfield (in addition to Milner's rumored "must play" contract clause) . Where do you play Milner now that Mane is in the team? If Milner can bring the same hardwork and effort to the LB position as he did on the wing, then we'll surely be better off than with the risky Moreno. The differences are obvious and glaring. I agree with Ed001 that playing a righty on the left side is a weakness. But it'a not a perfect world. I'd be more than surprised if anyone is brought in before tonight's deadline.


6.) 31 Aug 2016 13:44:08
A buy then loan would have suited all parties, the way he was improving at forest they must have been doing something right. We should send a couple youngsters there way, seem to do well, bamford lascelles darlow burke in the last couple of years came through the academy.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how loans work.}


7.) 31 Aug 2016 16:57:13
I can't see how we can hope to reach top 4 with Milner as our left back. Don't get me wrong he does a decent job there but his positional awareness for that position isn't good enough and will cost us goals similar to the spurs goal. I'm very surprised a manager of Klopps ability hasn't focused on bringing in a top left back when he payed 25 million for a player we didn't really need.


8.) 31 Aug 2016 18:37:45
"I can't see how we can hope to reach top 4 with Milner as our left back"

We won the CL with Djimi Traore in that position, and I rate Milner more highly than him at LB.


9.) 31 Aug 2016 20:26:05
to what ed 2 said Rest of the squad salaries are listed below and the data is taken from trusted sources like Guardian, BBC, Premierleague. com etc.

Daniel Sturridge and James Milner are the two highest paid players in Liverpool ranks with both taking home £120,000 a week salary. Captain Henderson and Coutinho who signed new financially improved deals last year earn £100,000 a week.
Liverpool Player Wages and Contracts 2016-17.


10.) 01 Sep 2016 23:24:04
NE red are people not allowed to learn anymore? Are players just born a position on the pitch and that can never be altered? The more he plays, trains and thinks like a full back the better he will become. I really do hate this 'he's not a left back' rubbish. He has all the attributes to be a decent left back (aside from being right footed but I don't see that as a massive issue) so if he puts his mind to it and is taught the role his positioning will improve. It's really not that hard to understand.


 

 

28 May 2016 23:45:30
Could be total rubbish but I've heard that Klopp is interested in Nicola Sansone.

MK Scouser

1.) 29 May 2016 00:05:33
Hope not, Italians have never settled well at Anfield. Those mummies boys should be avoided.


2.) 29 May 2016 01:32:57
He is German I think, just grew up and plays in Italy. Looks to have the pace to cope with English football. Never seen him actually play though. Just watched him on YouTube when I heard the rumour today.


3.) 29 May 2016 13:22:57
Workshy fop are there any players that you will be happy with? it seems like you would only be interested in signing massive reputation players? We only need to look at the improvement in some players since Klopp has arrived (lallana and Firminho to name just 2) and he has a reputation for turning cheaper/ younger/ Unknown players into world beaters so whoever he's interested in we should trust his judgement surely.


4.) 29 May 2016 12:57:40
Sorry MK but given our track record with Italian footballers, I'd much rather stay well away.


5.) 29 May 2016 13:40:24
I've noticed that lordpud, every player that gets mentioned him and mr dennis rubbish them, it doesn't matter who they are, when you play football manager all day long you tend not too like any football players unless their in your Xbox team, oh and for heaven sake don't mention Yarmalenko, you'll open up a whole tin of worms if you do.


6.) 29 May 2016 14:30:38
After Balotelli, Padelli, Aquilani and Borini, I think that would be enough to say we should give Italian players a swerve as they simply don't work hard enough and don't have the mentality to adapt. It's not a matter of playing football manager or Fifa. I don't play either, it's just that you look at players like Long, Mane, Walcott, Oxlade, Yarmalenko or Zielinski and you have to question what our scouts are actually up to if they consider them anywhere near good enough or will rectify the problems from last season? If we went after Kante, Goetze/ Reus, Hector and Sule / Subotic. All of those would cover our weaknesses and would be a significant upgrade.

{Ed001's Note - Borini is an absolute grafter.....}


7.) 29 May 2016 14:53:57
I can think of a good few Italian players that have done well in the premier league, for example, Maccarone, Zola, Di Canio, Vialli, Ravanelli, Cudicini, Di Matteo, Carbone, the bald eagle Lombardo, Festa, I'm sure there could be a few more, so it makes your post seem daft.


8.) 29 May 2016 15:28:59
How many have been successful at Liverpool? Answer me that one?
As for your list, Maccarone was a flop. Lombardo, Ravanelli and Carbone all got home sick. Only really Zola, DiCanio, DiMatteo and to an extent Festa were successful and Cudicini was a bench warmer for most of his time. As far as I'm concerned Italian players should be kept clear of.

{Ed001's Note - neither Ravanelli nor Carbone left because they were homesick. Utter rubbish. You read too many tabloids, as evidenced by the bigotry of deciding a whole nation is useless because a few players failed.}


9.) 29 May 2016 18:06:46
Workshy, I just heard a rumour from an Italian nurse whilst I was in hospital and thought i'd share! No need for the bigoted rant buddy!


10.) 29 May 2016 17:26:19
His whole time in England Carbone was said to hate the weather and wanted to return Italy as soon as he could and Ravanelli couldn't wait to leave (although in fairness I've been to boro and it's not exactly the cote d'azure) .

All I'm saying is given that we've had absolutely no succes with Italian players, we should give them the widest berth possible as it would be simply a case of more money being frittered away on players who either aren't good enough or simply don't fancy it.


11.) 29 May 2016 23:50:54
I like Fabio Borini to be honest and it is unfair to compare him to Danielle Padelli, Alberto Aquilani or Mario Balotelli as he settled well and worked hard for us.


12.) 30 May 2016 17:49:21
+1 to Ed 001.
You can't slate a player as laking graft because of his nationality, Workshy, that's just bigotry.


13.) 30 May 2016 23:24:15
Back in the day one of my favourite non-Liverpool players of Italian descent was Eddie Firmani. Should have had a much more successful career.


14.) 31 May 2016 00:00:24
Ian Rushdie and john alderidge were Italian! Wait I got them mixed up with the super Mario bros! Sorry!

27 May 2016 22:05:59
Ed002, I just saw a report saying we are after Franco Vazquez. Normally I'd dismiss random reports, but I'm sure you mentioned that we had scouted him this season?

Any chance we might have genuine interest in signing him?

MK Scouser

{Ed002's Note - Milan have enquired about the availability of Palermo's Franco Vazquez and were told that he would be allowed to leave in the summer if an offer of more than €30M were made. That would be enough to scare off Inter and Sevilla who have looked at him since the beginning of the season. Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs have scouted the player this season with Juventus Liverpool and Manchester United showed increased interest during the January window, but Milan seem confident a move will happen in the summer.}


1.) 28 May 2016 00:36:07
Isn't Zamparini just as difficult to deal with as Aulas, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not easy but not as difficult.}


2.) 28 May 2016 15:34:11
klopps not stupid. If he wants them he will get them. Prime example Gotze says he wants to stay and fight for his place. What happens? Bayern drop the price eventually we will sign him
for far less.


 

 

03 May 2016 22:41:54
Well today has been an eventful one. According to reports, we signed Chilwell at 11am, Horn at 1pm, Tierney at 4pm, Hart at 8pm, Courtois at 9pm and Zielinski at 10pm.

At least we have good options in goal next season now. Mignolet 4th choice!

MK Scouser

1.) 04 May 2016 00:29:50
Can't take the risk with him 4th choice. Let's get Zieler too 😎.

Liverpools rivals win: "it is a must win game! We need to keep up"

Liverpools rivals lose/ draw: "it is a must win game! We need to take advantage"

Just for clarity, does this mean some people won't be happy until we win 38 games a season?

MK Scouser

1.) 14 Jan 2017 18:13:40
If it takes to win the title Yes, I would want my team to try winning every single game regardless of what ever is revolving around the Sun.


2.) 14 Jan 2017 19:26:01
When have we ever not gone out to win every game? don't confuse intent to win with execution of performance


3.) 14 Jan 2017 19:42:19
I am not saying that we shouldn't target to win and even believe we can win every game.

What u am saying is that in reality, no team has ever won every game in a Premier League season. Not even the invincibles of Arsenal were immune to dropping points. So I don't get all this all or nothing drama every weekend about how it is "critical to win".

The next game should always be the most important, but that doesn't mean we should cry and whine over a draw or defeat. They can and will happen multiple times over a season. People on here just set up the dominoes every weekend so they can knock them down in a tantrum if we drop points, or even win unconvincingly!

It is just a pet hate of mine when people are so dramatic and act as though we are out of the title race if we lose tomorrow!

{Ed025's Note - spot on there MK..


4.) 14 Jan 2017 20:43:10
MK, you have described the some of LFC fan base perfectly. The reaction after every result, even a win, is appalling at times as if we are the only ones who draw or lose games and the other teams never do.

We go out to win every game under Klopp, period. If not, how is Klopp the best manager vs the top 6 since he arrived? How is LFC top 3 in games won away from home since he arrived? Most goals scored in the PL since he arrived? Cos to him, it doesn`t matter where the game is taking place, he goes for the win and we should be elated to have a man with such a mentality and belief in himself and his players.

But you wouldn`t know it with the nonsense you read on here after a negative result. As for tmrw even if we draw, lose or win, NOTHING will be decided in the PL till May but you will still see this forum awash with doom-mongering posts.


5.) 14 Jan 2017 21:13:06
Could not have summed it up better MK


6.) 14 Jan 2017 21:18:49
No, but we shouldn't be throwing points away vs Sunderland through stuid penalties nor, throwing away games like the one vs Bournemouth. I get and appreciate you can't win every game, but you shouldn't just hand points out on a plate to teams which is what has happened at times and the reason we were found wanting in 13/ 14,throwing points away vs Villa, WBA, Hull in games that lookedlike we didn't even want to be there. Fergies teams even when losing battled till the final minute, I still think at times we lack that hunger.

This is not saying any one is out the title race. But no team has ever won the title having lost more than 6 matches. You need 80 points minimum to win the league. so you can only really afford to drop 34 points at best, every time you drop 2/ 3 points, is a movement closer to that total. It's something that certainly should just be brushed aside as insignificant especially from winning positions and when the team has looked poor.


7.) 14 Jan 2017 22:41:40
Hamilton

If you are not disappointed after a loss then you are going through the wrong hole my friend. If you are not happy with some of the posts skip it and move on yet reply each and every post. It's the diversities in opinions that keeps this page refreshing.


8.) 15 Jan 2017 13:13:33
Absolutely right Adam. As Harry said (Zed agrees with Harry, shock! ) everyone hurts after a loss, but we have to put things into perspective, if only for blood pressure reasons, lol!

Top4 is an absolute minimum, but I always want to win the league and will always think we can do it at the start of every season!


 

 

05 Jan 2017 19:12:18
Following Ed001's confirmation that we are interested in some capacity in Raul Jiminez I just wanted to comment on him. Of all the forwards we've been reportedly watching he is one I would love to sign. Not seen him at all in Portugal but I did see him a fair bit during his brief stint in Spain. Back then he was a sensational young talent; one who I did previously recommend about 2 or 3 years ago even. But he was a bit part player at a top European side, showing lots of skill and consistent improvement.

On his time in Portugal I can only go off of his decent goal scoring record and highlight reels, but he looks to have matured and learned the all important skill of making the right runs! There are not many players we've been linked with that have excited me, but this guy is the exception! Capable of playing various forward positions, he would be a great asset. My only worry is how we would keep 6 forwards happy when we only use 3 at time. It would very much be in view to us competing in Europe next season so perhaps it is better to wait until the summer when we know that is guaranteed! Jimenez could be as popular as Torres and Suarez were though!

MK Scouser

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't get your hopes up mate, they will not sell cheap.}


1.) 05 Jan 2017 19:16:59
Like Porto, Benfica NEVER sell cheap.


2.) 05 Jan 2017 19:26:30
It's a dim hope rather than a blind expectation ;) don't worry Ed haha! I'm not going to lose any sleep in in February our only business is selling Ilori to Reading!

{Ed001's Note - you have a new baby, you will be losing sleep!}


3.) 05 Jan 2017 19:36:21
We can sign him if we sell Sturridge. You can't start a CL campaign with Origi as your lone striker.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 19:45:14
I think that's a good shout we definitely need another forward player yes we have ojo woodburn etc but we don't want them getting burnt out before the age of 23. Personally id like gabigol as I feel couts and firmino woukd be great mentors.


5.) 05 Jan 2017 20:00:27
Gabigol`s attitude stinks hence, the reason Inter want rid. No, thanks!


6.) 05 Jan 2017 20:02:24
So Harry, are we selling Firmino? While i appreciate you are somewhat fixated by set roles, i am not sure what Robbie needs to do to be recognised as a striker/ forward.


7.) 05 Jan 2017 20:09:43
I'd be happy to play against anyone with Firmino and Origi as my striker options.


8.) 05 Jan 2017 21:30:47
Andy

Robbie can't score without Coutinho is what many says here and Coutinho future us up in the air lol😎.


9.) 05 Jan 2017 22:18:06
Does Firmino also disappear into thin air if Coutinho leaves Harry? Regardless of whether Coutinho stays or not, Firmino and Ings will be other options to Origi and Sturridge.


10.) 06 Jan 2017 02:02:58
Countinho and firmino has to be sold as a combo. Hope the management realise this


11.) 06 Jan 2017 06:22:04
Of course Lee, because Firmino is clearly incapable of playing football with anyone in the world apart from Coutinho (or learning)


12.) 06 Jan 2017 06:36:22
1 goal in 9 games is looking like a bleak stat for a player who was banging in goals up down and enter. One main issue being played out wide to accommodate a central striker. We don't have natural wide forwards hence we play everyone on that position except Mane. let it be Origi, Firmino or Sturridge the results are the same.
Ineffective!

{Ed001's Note - hmmmm only Sturridge has been 'ineffective' there. Origi and Firmino have both played well, just not at the level they do when central. If you had not seen them play centrally, you would be fine with them wide.}


13.) 06 Jan 2017 06:43:44
Anyone could play there but you can't expect goals which is what a wide forward brings to you like Mane. More than goals the attribute itself.
Both could work their socks off but that is just one part of your game.


14.) 06 Jan 2017 07:32:47
Harry,

I think there are a few more factors to consider. Bobby got injured and has struggled to get back to the great form he was showing at the start. Add to that the couts idea that Ed1 suggested and the whole team not being as effective as before, it paints a broader picture than you suggest.

{Ed001's Note - they create chances, even when they aren't scoring, but Harry only sees that they work hard. I don't get it. It doesn't matter who scores the goals.}


15.) 06 Jan 2017 08:51:41
The question was about the goals Ed01. So I replied in that context and he is not as effective playing wide out. He is good between the CB's and that's a fact.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so, but you were the one saying the opposite when he was playing up top, so I will ignore your words as you can't show any perspective. Whatever is done you moan like a spoilt child about it and say it should be different.}


16.) 06 Jan 2017 09:09:34
Fair enough Ed01.


17.) 06 Jan 2017 16:01:32
Owned!


18.) 08 Jan 2017 00:00:46
Some need to give their heads a right good shake. We're 5pts off top after 20 games so bobbis had his dry patch but we compensated, how many goals did we score in those 9? And now couts is back full training as is studge, origi n lallana flying. There's no issue here people lmo


 

 

01 Jan 2017 11:57:30
Don't you just love media spinsters! We beat Stoke 1-4 and it's all "this defence is going to cost Liverpool a place in the top 4". Chelsea beat Stoke 4-2 and now it's "Great battling performance. They were asked different questions and they found the answers just like all good title challengers".

No fault of Chelsea might I add, just funny the way the media can completely change the way a result is viewed by the general public. We have only conceded 21 goals in 19 games. Only Chelsea (13) and Man United (19) can better that. Arsenal and Spurs could better that as well as long as they don't get thumped in their 19th games today. Guess my point is, we have the 5th best defensive record in the league at the midway point, but the best offensive record to go with it. So it really isn't anything to write home about that we have conceded just over a goal a game when we are scoring an average of about 2.5! Let's not forget that we have played the 3 big London clubs in London already this season and taken 7 points! Let's see how many they take back to London from the fortress that is Anfield!

MK Scouser

1.) 01 Jan 2017 12:34:47
MK you can't win with the press. Change their minds daily depending on results. Look at the national team, one win and it's our time, one loss and the press make them out to be the worst on the planet. Makes me laugh reading the papers.


2.) 01 Jan 2017 12:41:38
Without that lapse in concentration against Bournemouth, we'd have conceded three less goals as well! We're keeping clean sheets now which is very important. The media don't know what they're on about half the time.


3.) 01 Jan 2017 12:42:38
I have been making the same argument for weeks and thankfully, you have seen the same things I have, MK. The media are what they are and it seems some of them have it in for us and Klopp especially with this "bad defence and GK issue" nonsense. They always use statistics where it suits them and then still stick to a narrative even tho, it is being debunked as you just did. We don`t care what they think about us and frankliy, I never have especially after the chuckle bros started targeting Karius unfairly, IMO. We know how good we are and how awesome our manager is and that is what should matter.


4.) 01 Jan 2017 13:18:26
In reality our defense has done really well but it's not perfect. Clyne and Milner have been very strong defensively but Karius and Migs have shown flaws at times in goal and Lovren and Klavan have also made the odd mistake here and there. The problem is the media makes every mistake out to mean players are completely rubbish when in reality Karius and Klavan deserve a bit of time to settle into a new league, and it hasn't helped Lovren we haven't had a settled CB pairing for a while for a variety of reasons.

I suspect if we can get Matip back and playing with Lovren, and Karius gets the time he deserves then we will in time become one of the better defenses in the league - we're already not too far off if we give the back 4 the cover they need from midfield.


5.) 01 Jan 2017 14:22:55
I've noticed the same thing mk. I've noticed that were going under the radar a little bit in terms of how the pundits see us. I think ed1 summed it up pretty good with his match review. We used brilliant tactics against city, yet the pundits think they had an off day. I'm starting to think that all pundits have no clue about football.


6.) 01 Jan 2017 14:30:58
Don't read the media-watch the games and come tour your own conclusions.


7.) 01 Jan 2017 17:13:23
Well according to collymore we will finish outside the top 4 altogether because of our defence. I wouldn't worry about media and pundits, their opinions are just about as valid as ours on this site. so not much then!


8.) 01 Jan 2017 18:11:25
Honestly if it means going under the radar and being counted out then so be it. I'd prefer the pressure of us and we don't need to be recognised as genuine title contenders by them to actually be one. I think that suits us a lot more, so let the pundits play to the mainstream and the cliches. Defensively we have got a lot better. I think on paper we have a very decent defence, I'd say 5th best is about right. The problem is and has been for many years, are individual errors. It's only on occasion been down to shape or terrible defensive organisation, it's mostly individual errors and inability to defend set pieces. Now we are improving, I think the arguement some where trying to make is that we won't win the league with the way our defence and goalkeeper is, not that we have a shocking defence in regards to the rest of the league or can't compete, because that is simply untrue. But when you compare us with our direct rivals, then you see the point they might be trying to make, we are joint worst with city. However, they do exaggerate things and favouritism does exist to an extent. Just look how Karius came under such scrutiny and was called to be dropped but I didn't hear the same noise about bravo, even though in my opinion dropping Karius was the correct decision at the time.

The fact that we are clearly going for the league, people will say Chelsea are stronger back to front than we are, and let's face it they have been. We are a lot better offensively but they are a lot better defensively and we know defences win you titles whilst offences win you games. Our defence is now on track to what it should be. A few more games with good defensive performances and it won't be a stick for pundits to beat us with.


9.) 02 Jan 2017 01:47:26
I say long may it continue. If anything the press is taking the pressure off of us, they are writing us off and taking the expectations off us.
Maybe it's spurring klopp and the players to prove a point.


 

 

31 Dec 2016 20:34:50
Neither team really played well today. The difference was we were well up for grinding out a result and City just lack that grit. Great win!

MK Scouser

 

 

31 Dec 2016 14:33:13
I can see today being a cricket score in our favour if Klopp and the lads get it right. Pep is stubborn. He will never change his ways no matter the opposition. If City come out to play against us at Anfield they will be taken apart. They struggle passing it out from the back against the worst teams in the division, and we have the most effective press in Europe.

Alternatively if our lads don't go full throttle, City have the quality to hurt us badly. If both teams play to full capacity though this will be a hammering. YNWA.

MK Scouser

1.) 31 Dec 2016 16:57:03
MK Pep has learned from Germany that he has to adjust his game when meeting a Klopp team.
Won't matter as we'll still win.

Just to elaborate on his goal scoring record, if you look at his time in Spain you will quickly see he only scored once. The thing is though he only played about 600 minutes across around 20 substitute appearances whilst still being very young.

Since moving to Portugal, if you simply evaluate his league and Champions league form, he has 14 goals and 6 assists in roughly 2000 minutes of football. Or otherwise, a goal/ assist every 100 minutes. Only player in our squad who has ever posted figures like that is Sturridge. And 4 goals and 3 assists in the Champions league is probably more than our entire frontline has in their career. In fact if you take out Milner, it is probably more than our entire starting XI!

This is a forward who has proven he can score in high pressure situations, even if he isn't in the team every week. That makes him a very valuable asset to any squad; especially a team hoping to have a successful CL campaign next year. At 25 years old, his best is yet to come!

Just to clarify I never said he had pace in abundance haha. He is no slouch, but he is also not going to be going past Mane in training drills! I'd say he is more Henderson's ball park in terms of pace! Quick, but not renowned for it.

His key attributes are creativity, hold up play, aerial threat and poaching goals. He is also a good PK taker. His creativity means he can play out wide if required, particularly from the left cutting inside onto his right foot.

I'll concede his goal scoring record looks average on the face of it, but this is the kind of striker who as a rule tend to come into their prime around 27 years old, not a pacey Torres/ Owen kind who look finished by 27 years old! There is a clear upward curve in his recent seasons and I have been an admirer for a lot of seasons! £30m would be daylight robbery in todays market, in my opinion.

Shocked that someone from Bootle can't comprehend that, Davey. I am what you would all call a Southerner and even I refrain from calling that rag by its proper name.

Let's be realistic, he is a 24 year old left forward who has never scored double figures in a single LEAGUE campaign. Goals are ultimately what attacking players are judged on and for whatever reason, Coutinho doesn't score enough to put him in the £70m bracket. Ed025 is about right, he is worth £50m in todays inflated market. Although, I am hoping we get a big bid from China if he is to go! In their market he is worth £90m!

I know who you mean. He was in the Barcelona academy and therefore got nick named the Irish Messi! Rumour has it we signed him to the academy.

Haven't heard anything in about 3 years now but he was only 11 back then. So he is probably only 13/ 14 years old and being kept firmly out of the spotlight if he did actually sign for LFC.

Well he isn't free until the afternoon because we're having breakfast at Tiffany's.

I am not saying that we shouldn't target to win and even believe we can win every game.

What u am saying is that in reality, no team has ever won every game in a Premier League season. Not even the invincibles of Arsenal were immune to dropping points. So I don't get all this all or nothing drama every weekend about how it is "critical to win".

The next game should always be the most important, but that doesn't mean we should cry and whine over a draw or defeat. They can and will happen multiple times over a season. People on here just set up the dominoes every weekend so they can knock them down in a tantrum if we drop points, or even win unconvincingly!

It is just a pet hate of mine when people are so dramatic and act as though we are out of the title race if we lose tomorrow!

It's more like 10 league games Harry. We play away games in red as well unless the kits clash. Quick look down the league I'd say that is 10 games; 12 maximum. Anyway, I'm just splitting hairs. I have no idea what Zeddicus's point was!

What he did for John Barnes alone demands our respect.
