A brilliant film on Netflix if anyone is interested it's called Athlete A. Its about the doctor that was involved with the American gymnastics team and got sentenced for sexual offences and the cover up that went on.

Saw a documentary on sky about this Barry and it was quality, but also sickening what went on.

08 Jul 2020 09:19:19
Yeah I saw that Barry and it's very good, crazy that he got away with it for so long. The Daniel Hernandez one is also very good if u haven't seen it.

Is sad that this is an opening which people feel they can use to gain access to children, football being a main stead as we know which has been released in the last few years.

Shame too see wigan going into administration, I am sure they have a young talented striker who is in demand and we were linked.

its a disgrace they have ended up in this mess, so many clubs heading down this road i fear.
Hard to believe not so long ago they were a premier league side and F. A cup winners, i am gutted for there supporters.

You wonder how much due diligence was carried out by the football league to allow it to change hands.

07 Jul 2020 08:37:20
Im sure this has been said before by someone or perhaps even a lot of people but i think if klopp had not went into football management he would have found his way into eventually teaching in some capacity.

There are some people who thrive when they are in a position of passing on knowledge or shaping what they see as potential for greatness. The true people of that calling don't do it for the secondary fame. Klopp although not considered a great footballer by any means.

understands the game of football. But more than that he seems to understand the game of life even better. No one is perfect. Klopp like all of us has his flaws. He ain't the best loser and breaks a rule or two but he has humanity in bucket loads.

There is a lot of talk about transfers lately as is normal come the end of the season. The reality is that the current situation may not allow for what normally would have have come to pass.

To put it dramatically, darkness and light always find a way to balance. There is opportunity here. Klopp has an opportunity he might not have thought he was going to get again. He is a big man with big ideals and beliefs. He quickly realised he had to comprimise them somewhat with big transfers that were ultimately necessary.

But current times present an opportunity for klopp to do something he has always wanted to do. Shape a football team the right way.

Neco, jones, elliott, brewster, hoever, van den berg et all may have hit the jackpot. I sense klopp a little more energised when speaking about the younger players in the squad. I feel he sees an opportunity to build a team around talent that has been shaped both in terms of bravery to play football the right way and also to approach life the right way. To shape a force of football that won't be cherry picked by bigger clubs.

You can tell he sees genuine potential for greatness in some of the younger players and this fact alone may keep him at the club for a lot longer that he ever intended.

Nothing in life is ever a sure thing but i feel a class of 92 aura about liverpool beginning to happen. Football is fast moving and a dynasty such as utds might never happen that way again but i think events might push our club towards something similar.

The romantic in me feels klopp believes he is exactly where he is supposed to be to shape what's to come.

So for those who think we may be taking two steps backwards because we are not bringing any big signings in the forseeable future just spare a thought for the opportunity it presents to the talented youth coming through.

A talented young footballer with great potential being mentored by klopp both in football and life. When you multiply that times 5,6,7,8 in terms of the talented youth player we have coming through with a massive nit of luck we might just have a team full of players we call our own.

Football has went crazy in the last 10 years in terms of money. It would be nice to have a little of the romanticism back by watching a team with some superstars that have come through the system. As much as coming through the system means now days anyway.

The majority of the current main 11 has legs for another 4 to 5 years. By that time the young bloods may have all the tools they need to take the keys to the kingdom.

At the end of the storm.

This post was split in two as i hit send to early. Hopefully an ed can join them up or this may be a tad confusing.

Well I'd say once the break away league starts up in the near future, to my knowledge we won't be accepted, We should be winning the league every year similar to Juventus and Celtic.
Only difference is Man Utd did it with all the best teams still in the league.
Let's just hope we can still win another league before either Mr klopp goes or the big boys of the Premiership go to pastures new.

07 Jul 2020 16:59:47
Walter - you think that one of football's leading global brands sponsored by Nike won't be wanted eventually in the break away league? Nonsense.

06 Jul 2020 15:30:02
Man City are wonderful on their day - but they have lost more games than Arsenal this season!

We can look devoid of ideas on our day - European, World and league champions 23 points clear.

Choice is yours folks?

Yesterday was a microcosm of the entire season.
We huffed and puffed, were generally defensively sound (not as much as usual but a clean sheet) and managed to force a couple of goals to get the job done.
City pummelled Southampton for pretty much the entire game with some lovely football at times but made silly errors defensively and could’ve conceded 3 or 4. In the end 1 was enough as they started to get desperate towards the end and shooting from range.
It’s very evident that when Aguero is out they miss a proper goalscorer in those types of games. Just like us there’s a big drop off in quality from their first choice to their reserve players in that area.

05 Jul 2020 21:42:44
I guess you was right about Grealish Ed001 thought you was being a tad harsh on the lad but god he is an infuriating player. Spends more than half the game on the ground trying to buy cheap freekicks. Souness even mentioned that if you are the most fouled player in the league it means that you are taking far too many touches on the ball and not seeing the picture quite quick enough.

{Ed001's Note - exactly! Finally someone has noticed that it is not a good thing to be the most fouled player. Thank you Souie!!!}

Still, here’s hoping Ole ‘at the wheel’ Solskjaer spunks most of his transfer budget on Villa’s poundshop Damo Lennon.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

05 Jul 2020 21:05:29
Ahhhh we've only just started the new season and City are still losing to mid table teams. Sterling the gift that keeps on giving 🤦‍♂️😂.

Hi Ed001
I will like to inquire of you, what do you think about Saint-maximin and if you see him as someone that can be moulded by Klopp to become prolific like Sadio.

Always love your remarks on posts.

YNWA

{Ed001's Note - exceptional skill and pace but all the brains of a pigeon who has been dropped on his head from a great height. Incredibly inconsistent and has a few attitude issues. He will be brilliant one game in 100, good one game in 10, the rest of the time he is just a waste, giving the ball away constantly. Steer well clear.}

Ed001: the sort of player who looks good on a highlight reel, speaking of which i see Adama still has not improved his finishing, for £60m+ he needs to be scoring when clean through against the keeper.
Talking about wolves am i the only one who finds them utterly boring and negative, NES has some wonderfully gifted players but the tactics stifle there creativity.

{Ed001's Note - spot on mate on the first bit. The bit about Wolves, it depends who they are playing. He does go more attacking sometimes and it doesn't always work.}

05 Jul 2020 18:47:25
I can’t say that I’ve seen Saint-Maximin in 100 games.
But what I have seen, I’ve liked.
I start from the position of appreciating what a player can do, and he’s definitely got it in his locker.
One to keep an eye on.

06 Jul 2020 02:46:19
sounds like Mane ed!

{Ed001's Note - what does? }

05 Jul 2020 11:04:51
Divock origi for me as much as I love him is not good enough for this side, I don't know if I trust him next season and we are big time going to need him too perform, it would help if he was played down the middle but he is not effective enough . For us too progress as a team we need hungry players too make a difference .

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 13:02:06
Agreed. Hope he can get regular spot with a decent team, perhaps help Arsenal take a top 4 place next season.

05 Jul 2020 13:39:33
Arsenal cannot afford to buy origi, don't be so keen to get shot of him without a replacement being found, he needs to play centrally as i agree he is wasted on the wings, if he decides to move on as he wants to be a regular starter then i wish him well and thank him for his contribution to us becoming champions league and premier league winners.
Being a understudy to the front 3 is no easy task and if he leaves somebody else will have to perform the same role.

05 Jul 2020 14:15:14
I'd rather Dicock's minutes went to Brewster next season. Brewster has a much higher ceiling and will definitely be a better fit into Klopp's system.

05 Jul 2020 16:33:21
I would rather Brewster spend the entire season at swansea, he needs to be playing every week imo.
Is Paul Glatzel back from his injury yet? he was doing well before he got injured.

05 Jul 2020 22:05:21
Origi is just never going to make it eith us. He tries too hard to impress and it affects his game for us. He would be a good signing for a team challenging for a top six position, just not good enough for us as champions.
