Se no comments about the game vs Dortmund. Brewster getting goals which will build confidence. Maybe just maybe he will be the next youngster breaking into the first team. If he can put in the effort like Trent has and keep his attitude in tact then we have he will make it.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 12:20:36
That penalty was superb. Friendly or not, to place it with that much power and precision in the top corner is confidence and technique. Nice finish from Wilson too. He has a knack of knowing to be in the right place at the right time, had a good game, didn’t dwell on the ball and made good decisions in possession. And Ox was brilliant too, beginning of the window thought we needed to sign an attacking midfield, turns out he was there all the time. I’m looking forward to seeing him get some minutes this year.

{Ed025's Note - all your players are fantastic will obviously walk the league this season with that array of talent, they are all world class and never have a bad game and what about that be able to beat a keeper from 12 yards is outstanding ability...your very lucky mate..

20 Jul 2019 12:33:41
With any luck Everton might buy a competent keeper ed025? I hope not though, as I’m convinced that Pickford is the man for job. As long as the job is gifting soft goal ;)

Joking aside. We’re good enough to compete for the title, that’s not something we’ve been able to say for years. We’ll see if we are after 38 games.

{Ed025's Note - we will 6times..

20 Jul 2019 12:45:10
Ed0025, Brewster still learning his trade or Calvert leading the Everton attack this season?

At least LFC are in a position to give Brewster a chance while Mane, Firmino and Salah continue to rack up the goals :-)

{Ed025's Note - i have not seen enough of brewster to form an opinion max, but a lot of you are bigging him up before he has actually done anything mate, thats a lot of pressure for a young lad..

20 Jul 2019 13:26:49
Nah, have not seen anyone bigging Brewster up.

He is having a good preseason and seems to have a level head.

Calvert on the other hand might have to spearhead Everton's attack this coming season while Brewster has a chance to prove himself in a squad on the up.

Paves the way for Brewster to reach the next level.

{Ed025's Note - he is the second coming according to a lot of reds fans on here max, which is unusual for your dont usually over hype your players do you?.. :)

20 Jul 2019 13:29:51
friendlies mean nothing, we have already been informed here that Klopp is looking for an attacking player because Kent, Wilson etc are deemed not good enough. 3 weeks left in the transfer window too, Wilson and Kent will be playing elsewhere this season.

20 Jul 2019 14:31:35
Speaking about young strikers coming through man united have an absolute diamond on there hands with Greenwood, he will do damage .

20 Jul 2019 15:11:53
Lol Hailstones.

UTD need to get rid of Lukaku before giving Greenwood a chance mate.

20 Jul 2019 15:29:55
Trust me he will make his presence known this season, lukaku has one foot out the door, an if he stays they will have an unhappy player .

20 Jul 2019 15:38:42
Yeah which decreases Lukaku's value if he does not feature.

Greenwood is playing in preason. In fact, he might even struggle to get playing time with Rashford being first choice with Lukaku on the bench.

{Ed001's Note - Lukaku is 'injured'.}

20 Jul 2019 16:03:09
Lol Ed001, Lukaku 'excluded' from the United 1st team squad this coming season and some youngster taking his place. I bet Longstaff is going to take up Pgba's place seeing that UTD have priced him out of a move.

Beggars believe. UTD have dug a massive hole for themselves. Oh well.

20 Jul 2019 16:06:32
A lot of people are bigging him up. Mcateer said he's like Rushie and fowler, others are saying pace like Owen. The most impressive so far about him is the interplay in the small spaces quick one twos, good close control. That penalty was excellent too. I also get the impression that the boy has a lot of confidence in himself.

19 Jul 2019 22:30:05
Ah well Saido, at least you've got a champions league medal to take the sting out of it.

Agree6 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 21:11:40
Have a feeling the Havertz link may be legit, but Liverpool may look to sign the player this season, for next season, let him have another year at Levekusen, they won't sell this season after losing Brandt, and if liverpool get him now at £80m then he goes on to having another fantastic season, they've easily saved themselves £30-£40m.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 22:12:36
We'll add that to your long list of random guesses.

19 Jul 2019 07:52:59
What would be a great season for us next season and realistically what can we achieve.

I would say the world club thing will have a huge impact on our season.

My prediction.

88 points in league.

Second to city.

Champs league or fa cup or carabao cup is a realistic possibility but only one of them.

I would pre than happily take a trophy a year.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 10:01:32
If we can convert some of those draws to wins, then anything is possible. I think some dynamism from Ox might help in these games as he’s prepared to turn and run at defenders from centre midfield, he might not have the passing range of the City midfield but he has the drive and energy.,

19 Jul 2019 13:18:44
It could have a massive impact on our season and we need to be lucky with injuries to challenge city for the league. don't forget that city have lost Kompany and who knows how this may effect them defensively because he was brilliant in the run in.

19 Jul 2019 14:07:27
Happy with number 19 and/ or number 7

Happy team, happy coaching staff, happy fans.

That will do for me.

18 Jul 2019 21:29:04
With this being a quiet summer for us to date, the last few weeks on this site has been filled with regular debates on coutinho, Wilson etc where many contrasting opinions are held. I myself don't think they're suited enough to this team. Both players have been lauded for their striking of a ball from distance, but this ability can cloud many of our judgement of a players overall importance to a team.

Thinking of other examples where a player had many weaknesses but a few wondergoals hid their limitations. Laurent Robert, riise, hitzlesperger, Townsend, MG Pederson, kolarov. All great at striking a clean ball but I think that often led to these players all being hugely overrated at stages of their careers.

hulk, Honda, juninho, calhanoglu other examples of slightly overall limited players but their technique forged their reputations. None of those players could offer enough to play for a higher quality team. R. carlos too very overrated for his powerful shots alone.

I feel coutinho and Wilson could show similarities in the way many players have been hyped and built up just on that 1 side of their game alone.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 23:30:07
Coutinho and Wilson aren’t comparable at all, other than they can both hit a shot from distance. Wilson is a quick wide forward/ winger, as opposed to the number 10 type that Coutinho is, personally I think Wilson deserves his chance as he has done very well in his last two loan spells in the championship, 22 goals in 53 Championship games for Hull and Derby is a very good return by any definition and he scored a lot of different types of goal as well as getting a fair few assists and key passes in those spells. If this season we saw a breakthrough of Wilson and Brewster to join Alexander-Arnold, how satisfying would that be?

18 Jul 2019 14:05:05
The Sturridge news is frustrating. These players earn ridiculous amounts of money, why do something so silly. Do any of the ed's have any insight into the situation?

{Ed001's Note - like what? He never gambled anything - he doesn't gamble.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 15:13:43
No, but he allegedly told his brother to bet on a potential move.

{Ed001's Note - so what has that to do with Sturridge having lots of money? And so what if he told his brother about a move? It is his family, he is bound to tell them, but his brother should have known better than to bet on it.}

18 Jul 2019 15:34:26
My understanding of the situation was that he had told his brother to place a bet on the move, as that is what's alleged. Given his personal wealth the frustration stemmed from the fact that any monetary gain from such a bet would be minimal comparatively.

If its just a case of his brother abusing the information, then that's not on Sturridge and I apologise for any accusations. If that is the case, where is the line with regards to inside information in football? legally speaking.

{Ed001's Note - who cares? It is nothing to do with Daniel's wealth and his brother never had to bet on it, regardless of what Sturridge said.}

19 Jul 2019 12:14:56
Funniest thing in all of this is he can’t play football for six weeks! We could have told the courts that.

18 Jul 2019 10:22:28
Out of fun I wanted to know the best ever team you guys think. Eds are also welcome. Mine is

RB- Lahm
CB- loather mattahus
CB- Maldini
LB- Roberto Carlos
DM- Maklele
CM- N'golo Kante
AM- Platini
RW- Pele
CF- Rinaldo Lima (9)
LW- Maradona

Ed001 what is your favorite i really wanted to know.
PS I m not so impressed by any GK so I included Yacin of russia.

{Ed001's Note - I would change Lahm for either Carlos Alberto Torres or Cafu. I would have Baresi over Mattheus, but I would probably pick Desailly ahead of both. And then shift Maldini to left back and put in Hansen or Baresi instead.

Makalele would be nowhere near my team, he was great at what he did but you have Kante, you don't need a specific DM with him, you need someone who will press alongside him. For me that has to be Cruyff. Johan Cruyff was one of the best at pressing the ball to win it back. You don't need Platini with Cruyff, as Cruyff is much better than him. So I would swap him for Souness, he could do it all and was a machine of a man.

Can't argue without your front 3 though!}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 10:46:31
Ed01 how came I forget Cruyff agree he is the man who single handedly changed game the most sorry for his omission. I was torn in b/ w brasei but I think with so much defensive prowess we can have Carlos at lb.

{Ed001's Note - I just don't think Roberto Carlos was all that special.}

18 Jul 2019 10:53:00
Things brings me a question for you Ed1, some may say a difficult one but for me it's quite easy. Who is your favourite ever player? I was having this conversation the other day and for me it's Cruyff hands down, many greats out there of course but he was something special, a player I feel nobody will ever come close to again, certainly not in my life time.

{Ed001's Note - my favourite is Fowler. He was a special talent.}

18 Jul 2019 12:28:13
Fowler and batistuta are my two all time favourites. Missed rush and barnes in their prime. Watching fowler come through was special. What a finisher.

18 Jul 2019 13:15:58
Yes, Fowler was something different that's for damn sure. I still wouldn't put him ahead of Cruyff but he's way up there. Another legend.

{Ed001's Note - but you asked my favourite, not who was the best.}

18 Jul 2019 13:33:24
Tough one that. I'd go with this,

Alberto baresi beckenbauher maldini.

Zico. Cruyff.

Messi. Pele. Maradonna.

18 Jul 2019 13:34:59
Ed1, I worded it wrong, appolagies mate but OK so a second question lol who is the best player in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - Maradona.}

18 Jul 2019 14:08:40
If you had to pick 3 subs then who would you want, (1 DF, 1MF, 1FW. ) Taking versatility into consideration too.

I'd have thuram in defence,

Zidane in midfield,

C. ronaldo as a forward. Only over Brazil Ronaldo as he can play wing and central

(Players like puskas, di Stefano, eusabio I've never watched enough to consider)

18 Jul 2019 15:26:51
I’d not have Kante but Souness instead. He put the fear of god into his opponents and was as comfortable defending as he was attacking. Greatest centre midfielder ever in my opinion. The persons person.

18 Jul 2019 15:40:12
As for a greatest 11? (Obviously this is a subjective matter)

van Basten

Honourable mentions to Best, Dalglish, Pele, Garincha, Batistuta, Hagi, Stoichkov, Banks, Maldini, Laudrup.

18 Jul 2019 15:41:42
I always change my team, but:
Kahn; Zanetti, Stam, Maldini, Lizarazu; Kante, Schweinsteiger, Zidane; Maradona, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo (or Eto'o) .

18 Jul 2019 16:57:11
I could not get enough of Steve Mcmanaman. Best dribbler of a football I have ever seen and he scored some worldies.

Not in my best pocket but what a player!

{Ed025's Note - he could play max but as as a commentator he is the most boring man on the planet and talks a load of nonsense mate..

18 Jul 2019 17:02:37
Realtofel, do you rate schweinsteiger that highly? I always felt he was slightly limited in the world class bracket, I wouldn't even put him in my German best XI personally.

18 Jul 2019 17:05:09
Who cares what he says as a commentator.

I was pissed whem Macca decided to pack his bags for Madrid. Top, top player. Also had a succesfull spell ad Madrid. That is what makes a player.

When Owen left for Madrid crying like a baby, did not bother me one bit.

18 Jul 2019 19:43:53
Har_red92, I rate Schweini that highly. I have followed Bayern for years, and Schweini is probably my favorite player from Bayern.
Plus he has one of my all-time top 3 individual performance in a match. He was imperious against Argentina in that World Cup final - Kramer had a concussion early and Kroos had a stinker.
And in Bayern's best (or 2nd best, I'm partial to the 2001 team) season (2013) that I ever saw, he was vital to the way the team was set up.

18 Jul 2019 20:42:54
That's fair enough realtofel, if you follow bayern then I'm sure you have a better judgement on him than I do. He used to be a right winger in his early years I seem to remember, certainly was a very tidy player on the ball in his prime.

19 Jul 2019 20:13:52
I’d go 4-2-3-1

Lahm- Cannavaro - Stam - Roberto Carlos
Souness- Cambiaso
Maradona - Platini - Cruyff
Van Basten.

17 Jul 2019 23:06:56
Just seen Huddersfield Towns new kit the paddy power logo is huge and goes across diagonally, its horrendous.
It got me thinking as Lfc were the first English club to have a sponsor on their shirt in 1979 with Hitachi was it seen as bad as the Huddersfield one is?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 07:16:30
I thought it was a pr stunt from Huddersfield and paddy power, but they actually wore it for their friendly.
Horrible kit, and think it goes against the FA guidelines.

17 Jul 2019 06:41:09
So guys, what number will Mbappe be wearing for us this season eh? ;)

On another note eds and reds, I’m curious as to how much has ball technology impacted the game. We hear about pitches getting better, players are better conditioned etc but what about the improvements (if any) on the balls used? I remember the ball used in the 2010 World Cup was said to be swerving too much in the air, and you get all these press releases on new technology on your Adidas, Nikes and what have you.

And lastly, would that have any impact on the free kick/ corner takers’ effectiveness, season to season?

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 23:27:36
From personal experience probably a small effect. My brother bought an official ball and it played nicer than cheaper ones, but not by much. I assume Adidas and Nike may try and design balls with specific fluid dynamics, but that is way beyond my expertise.

I do know in tennis all the different rackets you see are more of a marketing stunt by manufacturers. Tennis players play with prostock rackets which are just painted like the ones advertised.

That is all I can contribute with my very limited knowledge and experience, I'm sure other readers with far more experience and knowledge can contribute more!

This is such an insightful question Azk!

18 Jul 2019 05:05:07
Thanks RH. We rarely hear about the impact of these balls being used so I assumed it didn’t matter so much, but through some random reading I came across that issue during the 2010 World Cup so that got me wondering! Also why like payet when he was at West Ham, his dead ball delivery during his 2nd season didn’t match up to his first if I recall correctly.

18 Jul 2019 08:53:26
The Jabulani was a fantastic football to play with, but your right that ball had a mind of its own.
But you raise an interesting point, I think James was the standout star from that tournament and maybe that football suited his style. Obviously there are many other factors in to why James didn't become the star he was made out to be but an interesting question. Thanks Azk.

17 Jul 2019 00:59:58
Ed25, Karius as bad as you like him to be, is still better than yojur useless Lossl. He played in a CL final and your Lossl didn't and at the rate your club is going right now, he won't even smell one. Sure he made mistakes and was not the answer. That does not remove from the fact that he helped us make the CL final. That is a fact you and your bitterness are going to have to live with. You can call me all the names you want but you can't convince me of what I don't believe in.

I simply believe that Karius did a fair job, not great by any account. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. The funny thing is that you want me to roast him to make you feel better BUT I won't cos well, I'm able to move on. You know what is sad tho? Your Pickford who continues to lose you games with the brainfarts he makes under no pressure either from the opposition or the occasion again, a CL final that neither of your GK's will ever see. Peace!

{Ed025's Note - im not trying to convince you of anything redwolf, i dont want you to roast karius either...i can do that for you, the bitterness is all yours my friend and even though i think you are a very good poster your blinkedness is clouding your views but i can live with that, just remember that i am a purveyor of the truth and tell you of everton,s failings all the time, pickford is not a good keeper and richarlison is a blatant cheat who dives as much as tom daley, but they play for my team so i will support them which is my want...but you are in denial mate and cant even recognize that some of your brilliant world class players have failings...which is sad really..

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jul 2019 07:18:40
Wow who whizzed in your cornflakes this morning got to say ed you have great banter seems red has taken something personal I personally like karius and stuck his corner with my rose glasses firmly planted on my face but truth is we made it that far by the rest of the team scoring more goals than he let in. serious red ed25 is a brilliant and honest poster and keeps us grounded with great banter I personally find this post a bitter example of what turned a friendly rivalry into a bitter one filled with hatred.

17 Jul 2019 11:52:05
Awful post about a back up goalkeeper. If stuff on here annoys you that much maybe it's time to leave the site?

17 Jul 2019 07:15:37
Geez Ed, if Redwolf had said half of that to Ed002, he'd have ripped him a new one. A very balanced reply from you I thought, always the gent as well as a person :)

{Ed025's Note - i tend to give people the benefit of the doubt burkey, i have only banned a handful since i started mate so some will say fair...others would say...daft as a brush.. :)

17 Jul 2019 21:33:56
Despite supporting the wrong club (lol), Ed025 has always been my personal favorite on this site. I've been in a customer-facing role most of my career and it's still difficult to deal with some customers, especially when I feel they're being stupid on purpose. Then I come to this site and see the way Ed025 relates with people and their funny posts.
I've to say that I'm always impressed.

{Ed025's Note - cheers realtofel..
