Any news of Flanagan getting a new contract? Is it even being discussed?

hjikle

Hope he gets one, he worked hard last year and showed he had the quality to be in the first team. That goal against Spurs is still a highlight from last season for me.


2.) 12 Feb 2015 10:25:51
One wonder goal and he get's a new contract ? Rather cash in on him and bring another youngster through.


3.) 12 Feb 2015 10:32:07
I think it would be wise to see how he does when he returns from injury.

A full season out is a long time especially at his age.


4.) 12 Feb 2015 13:34:34
Actually It wasn't simply one wonder goal, he played brilliantly when he came in, made Johnson look more of a mug than he actually is, showed that he has what it takes at the top level as he was consistant, solid and worked hard, the goal against spurs was the icing on the cake, as was his reaction.


5.) 12 Feb 2015 17:29:04
Agree Mr D


6.) 13 Feb 2015 07:45:01
He was our only defender last year that actually looked like he had any intention of defending and made opposition players think twice about running at him. He was the best positioned, most disciplined, most energetic and most effective defensive player we had last year. And that was playing on the wrong side.


7.) 13 Feb 2015 20:29:52
If carra was still about he would have learned so much. I remember one of his first games seeing carra talking him through the game, where to be and where to keep the attackers. Shame.


8.) 13 Feb 2015 22:20:00
He played brilliantly last season, but still think it would be wise to see how he recovers after being out for a season.


9.) 14 Feb 2015 12:48:58
I have mentioned this in the past, no the likelyhood is he won't be offered a new contract, he will be given a chance to prove himself in the next couple of months before the decision is made, read my last comment to find out why. Also BR thinks wisdom is a better option as he can fit into the three at the back aswel as a full back


10.) 14 Feb 2015 22:58:50
I think his time is up. Another Martin Kelly Saga.

Before people get too carried away with the importance of Coutinho playing deeper, I think it's important for us to all remember that on his good days, Coutinho is sublime and makes things happen across the field. What we saw today was as much the effect of Coutinho playing well as him playing deep.

hjikle

1.) 14 May 2017 19:24:32
also there were runners. look at sturridges goal. its impossible for coutinho to make a pass like that if there was no recepient.

thats what we lost when we lost mane. thing is other players could do it too, not just mane so not sure what happened.

onwards to the last game, who knows 3rd place, at this point in time is still up for grabs.


2.) 14 May 2017 19:33:23
OK? You do know that Couts is tried and tested in the deep CM position while we almost won the PL in 2014, Hijkle? No one is getting carried away as we already know Couts can play there effectively and to me, should be switched there next season to accommodate the wide player (s) that Klopp wants to sign.


3.) 14 May 2017 22:30:15
N Red - did I at any point say he can't or shouldn't play there? No I didn't. I just pointed out that it's not some magic key to getting Coutinho to play great every game. He's produced many fine performances from deep, from wide and from just behind the striker. What we saw today was his ability, not just what he gives us from a deep start.

If we get into the CL what pot are we likely to be in? Assuming it's 4 but worth checking!

hjikle

1.) 05 Apr 2017 09:48:15
4th will be qualification stages.


2.) 05 Apr 2017 09:49:01
It depends obviously on what other teams get in but I would assume we have a chance of pot 3 at the least? I'm sure we still have decent points from el final as I think the points are from the last 2 or 3 years? Im sure someone can correct me there but I'd still guess we could get in pot 3.


3.) 05 Apr 2017 11:03:08
Stop counting chickens! Insigne can't keep up.


4.) 05 Apr 2017 12:46:16
Dont worry Jezza I said if!


5.) 05 Apr 2017 13:35:03
How about we win the game tonight first before talking about such things.


6.) 05 Apr 2017 14:26:24
ha, that's a bit like when the great Bill Shankly said, let's put the ball in the back of their net, and talk about it later, brilliant .


 

 

25 Feb 2017 13:20:11
For the Belgium based reds - anyone know of anywhere that I might be able to watch the game in Brussels on Monday? Preferably in/ near the European Quarter?

Freddy Adu just failed to get a contract with Portland

I think it's time the owners opened their chequebook tbh. My footy manager 05 said that he'd make Pele look like Jovanovic by now!

hjikle

1.) 08 Feb 2017 19:23:24
I reckon we get him in and put him up front with Nemeth!


2.) 08 Feb 2017 22:59:27
I'm surprised no-one has suggested Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. If we could buy a centre back with that name on the back of shirt we would be unbeatable! There is even a Dutch player -meervoudigepersoonlijkheidsstoornis - however tghis one is more suited to manchester united as it translates to 'mental peronality disorder'.

Hi Eds

Bit of a general football question if I may. A local lower league club I used to work for has just started letting a late 30's ex player train with them again. This ex player is a cult name most people would recognise here but since his career ended (slightly prematurely) he's been on a personal downhill slide; substance abuse, wife moved out etc. It was very unexpected for those of us who knew him back in the day (which in fairness was a while ago now) when he was always the nicest, most normal, down to earth guy at the club.

I know those sorts of issues are a risk for retiring athletes who lived for their sport and suddenly are without any of the direction or rush that it brings. But are football clubs in general (and I'm sure there are extreme cases at both ends of the spectrum) making proactive steps to help players settle into retirement from the sport and transition away from that life? Or do they exist in a space where as soon as your contract is over unless you have another way to be useful, they don't want to hear your name again?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Players are transient and you spend the last part of their career at a lower league club - it cannot be expected that such a club eases a player in to retirement. Players get a lot of support nowadays and the PFA provides help.}


1.) 30 Jan 2017 15:45:57
PFA have help there but you have to go looking for it, they do not go out of their way to promote or help this with ex players. in some cases it could be at a point where the demons are already in the system and you have to be at rock bottom before the system steps into help.


2.) 30 Jan 2017 20:42:25
Without sounding heartless but why should footballers get this help? Plenty of people have stressful jobs and get no help, nurses, soldiers, teachers etc.


3.) 31 Jan 2017 08:52:39
There needs to be more sympathy and awareness of mental health issues in all walks of life.


4.) 31 Jan 2017 12:01:46
Thanks Ed002. More of a curiosity than an expectation.

Mikey - all of those people have help so I don't know what you're on about. There are trade unions, charities, membership organisations and government funds that literally exist for the sole reason of helping those people. Don't make the mistake of thinking that every footballer is rich and can afford all the help they need - a very small percent actually end up 'rich' - most probably earn a better than average wage for most of their career, but when their career is 15-20 years max and finish it with little education to move onto something else, that 'better than average' wage needs to cover them for a very long time. I had a drink with a player for this club at their retirement party, he graduated from the spurs academy but spent almost his whole career in League 1 and the Championship. He told me he never earned more than £75k/ y and most of the time it was closer to £40k/ y. Sounds like good money but as he pointed out, he might never earn more than minimum wage in his life (being a more or less unknown footballer with a O-level in PE doesn't exactly quality you for many jobs) means he'll probably earn significantly less over his career than the average person on the street will.

99 - it's good to hear that the PFA does have a recognised function in that.

Shame, he should be getting 20-30 minutes most games and be 100% ready when Salah or Mane need to rest as a like for like replacement. He might not have the ability just yet but he has nothing more to learn on loan.

DeanW - because we cannot replace him at this point in time and he made the decision to try and force a move the day before the start of the season. The second part alone should mean he's forced to stay with us and shouldn't have too much issue with it - I know he's been interested in Barcelona for a while but the day before the season starting to come out with crap like 'problems with klopp for six months' and demanding a move is unacceptable.

I doubt Athletico would have given something their debut this weekend if they did not fully expect them to remain their player.

I would imagine Nice would absolutely hold out on making Seri decisions until the CL qualifiers are done, and be able to say no way if they make it in. Doesn't seem like a sensible target to me.

A largely untested keeper, no leadership in their defense and a completely unbalanced midfield. Mendy does not pretty much secure the title for City.

Litmanen was one of my favourite ever players and Houillers treatment of him was criminal.

hjikle

{Ed001's Note - I can remember us all screaming at Houllier to bring him on but he would just not bother or bring him on for 5 seconds at the end, just to prove a point that he was the boss. When you get a player of that much quality, you play him.}

You'd hope beyond hope it's a stopgap solution to give Juanma time to grow.

Welcome to modern football. You wanted an international brand and financial force. You got it now!

At the first international break there were rumours going around that Conte would be fired record quick last year.
