Hi eds1
Is Danny Ings still joining Southampton after he’s loan is now finished?

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware it was all done before the end of the season.}


1.) 11 Jun 2019 18:58:59
Was the fee already agreed before the loan eds1.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


2.) 11 Jun 2019 19:42:45
I know people will disagree but i still think Origi should be joining him. don't think he's up to competing with the front 3 over a long season.


3.) 11 Jun 2019 19:59:02
Little Naby I agree. Not knocking the lad for how he finished the season but he’s not good enough.


4.) 11 Jun 2019 23:38:10
Cue the fume when we don't bring in a £70 million front man to sit on the bench and instead give Origi a new contract.


5.) 11 Jun 2019 23:54:25
Little Naby not sure what more you want from the guy he was excellent in the close season and earned his place in this squad. You won't get top drawer players happy to sit on the bench and frankly it causes more problems than good, look how many want to leave city!


6.) 12 Jun 2019 09:17:27
He wasnt excellent Never, what player were you watching? Peoples minds are being muddled by the fact he scored a couple of goals on our way to number 6,oh and let's not forget the derby goal my granny would have put away. There was a time i really wanted it to work out for Origi but he's not good enough. How many teams were beating down our door to sign him last summer and January? And this isn't about wanting a shiny new £70-80m player to replace him, i would honestly rather see an academy player like Woodburn or Camacho play ahead of him because at least one they they MIGHT be good enough.


7.) 12 Jun 2019 12:36:35
It isn't a long season to Origi - along season playing every game then yes! When asked to do a job, he's done as best as poss.


8.) 12 Jun 2019 14:19:31
If he gets a new contract and sticks around i'll support him as a Liverpool player. I just don't think he should get that contract and we should sell him now while his stock is at its highest. We should be at a stage now where we have better than Origi on the bench. he'd struggle to get in a matchday squad for most of the top half of the table teams.


9.) 12 Jun 2019 14:35:49
He's the only natural finisher out of our front three, that said, I wouldn't start him over Mane, Booby or Mo but he can offer something different if we rotate him.


10.) 12 Jun 2019 15:04:01
I like having Divock as an option.
I liked his performances on the left the few times he played there.
IF he stays it will be because the club see his utility and he thinks he can do it.
That's all you can ask for.


11.) 12 Jun 2019 16:14:20
Little Naby and Pegleg, could you please tell me how many teams were beating down Andy Robertson's door when we signed him? And how on earth are you able to determine that Origi's stock is at the highest right now, at 24 years of age and coming back into form and reckoning?
You guys epitomize the exact thing that's wrong with modern fans, but I'm particularly disgusted because this kid has done everything he's been asked and has just played a major, major part in maintaining our title pursuit last season and winning us our first trophy in almost a decade.
To justify your nonsense you suggest that it might just be better to play Camacho or Woodburn. ahead of Origi, because, as you implied, they might just be better! It is truly pathetic that you feel the only way to measure our progress or readiness to win major trophies is by having better players on the bench than Origi. There was a time Machedo won Manchester United the league; John O'Shea; Felipe Anderson; list goes on.
I don't think we deserve anything with "fans" like you! I see now why Ed002 loves Liverpool fans! Keep it up!


12.) 12 Jun 2019 16:52:44
Noski wind your neck in lad. No need to bite their heads off. If you disagree that's fine but chill out man. People are allowed to have different opinions to you.


13.) 12 Jun 2019 16:56:39
I don’t think Origi is up to the task really, but I don’t think Bobby is either. Before everybody shoots me down, if you took him out of our side last season and replaced him with peak Torres, Saurez or Fowler, we win the league, I have no doubts about that. I love Bobby, he’s a fantastic player but if everyone thinks back to before we signed him, he was an attacking midfield player, not a forward. I would love to see him move back into midfield. Everyone seems to think we need a “Fekir” type player to open defences and score goals from midfield, I think Bobby can do that no problem. Sign a world class out and out striker would be my preference.


14.) 12 Jun 2019 21:02:17
Noski i don't epitomise anything, im supporting LFC 30 years and usually hate criticising one of our players but the lad is not good enough. IN MY OPINION. if you think he is then fine but i know most L'pool suppoters i know agree with me. if we hadnt completed a miracle comeback against Barcelona there would be very little people on this site in favour of keeping Divock.


15.) 12 Jun 2019 21:49:03
We beat West Ham away 3-2 Divock scored
We beat Everton at home 1-0 Divock scored
We beat Barcelona at home 4-0 Divock scored
We beat Spurs in CL final 2-0 Divock scored
He played 673mins and scored 7 goals and has a goal average of 1 every 96mins in 2018/ 19
He will sit on the bench and wait his chance and doesn't sulk.
When we needed him this season he was there.
Jose Mourinho speaking on RT said after the CL final that players like Divock are like gold dust. Jurgen it seems wants to offer him a new contract and people on here want rid of him?
He cost Liverpool £8mil, would people prefer we sold him and spent £50mil for someone else to sit on the bench and disrupt the squad because he's not getting a game?

{Ed025's Note - sounds like a brilliant player polecat, so if he had of played more maybe you would have won the league?, does that mean that klopp picked the wrong team at times?...maybe jurgen is not as good as i thought mate..


16.) 13 Jun 2019 00:11:55
My neck has truly be wound in, Campbell. I'm waiting for your Campbocopter to deliver the flashiest signing yet! Clear all the deadwoods and splish and splash!


17.) 13 Jun 2019 01:04:45
Divock is worth his place anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded and frankly wrong.

If Klopp sees him as good enough for the best team in europe then none of us are qualified to disagree.


18.) 12 Jun 2019 22:26:22
jurgens good enough to try and get rid last summer Ed025 but he wouldn't go to Wolves. For me if everyones fit he's not even 1st option off the bench i'd have Shaquiri on ahead of him, Ox too if he's on the bench.

{Ed025's Note - hes a different option i suppose naby, but if he does stay i cant see him starting many games mate..


19.) 13 Jun 2019 19:14:28
ED025,

If Everton had a few players as good as him maybe they wouldn't have finished 43 points behind LFC?

{Ed025's Note - your right polecat....it would have been 53, its yet another case of liverpool supporters over hyping one of their players, hes bench fodder and no more mate as next season will prove ( that is of course if they cant get shut of him)..


20.) 15 Jun 2019 09:01:21
I love what origi has done for us and his attitude has been great. His goals have all been instinctive which bobby lacks around the box. He's never one to grab a game and produce something out of nothing, all his goals have come from 6 yard tap ins apart from final.

I'd have no complaints if he stays. But I actually feel origi himself might want to leave. His latest quotes suggest he's deciding his next move. He's 24, another season of 700 minutes can't be what he wants.


 

 

02 Jan 2019 19:55:41
Hi eds
Is Solankes move to CP not going ahead now?

{Ed001's Note - for now yes.}


1.) 02 Jan 2019 20:23:48
Apparently, there are concerns over his fitness.
My opinion is that it may be difficult for him to go on loan because teams would need him to start playing immediately.
A permanent deal however may be different, because he may be afforded more time.
But that's just my opinion.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue - someone making unreasonable demands is.}


2.) 02 Jan 2019 20:54:07
Player looking for Guarantees no doubt then.

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not the issue.}


3.) 02 Jan 2019 22:09:32
Probably us demanding an excessive loan fee or insisting Palace cover all his wages.


4.) 02 Jan 2019 22:11:55
Am dumping it’s the club’s demands of playing time and feed.


5.) 02 Jan 2019 22:46:32
*assuming.


6.) 03 Jan 2019 01:52:31
Maybe we are trying to get some sort of agreement about Bissaka.


7.) 03 Jan 2019 05:55:10
Havent seen it asked yet, so here goes. ed2 who is making the unreasonable demands and what are they?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant. He will go elsewhere.}


8.) 03 Jan 2019 15:19:52
Doesn't Solanke have a very demanding father that was also part of the problem @ Chelsea?


9.) 04 Jan 2019 00:33:05
Is it not about CP signing too many loan players this season?


10.) 04 Jan 2019 00:38:46
Like where?


 

 

25 Apr 2018 06:55:46
Hi eds. do you know when Lallana it due back. After the injury to the ox we need him ASAP. ?

{Ed001's Note - he is not expected back this season, unless we make the final in which case he could possibly make it. Not sure we 'need' him, good player as he is, we have not missed him at all this season and look better without him. He does not fit the way we play any more.}


1.) 25 Apr 2018 07:06:41
Ok thanks eds
Maybe time for him to move on then.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 07:46:10
I think we are all panicking over Midfield options ed mate. what's your thoughts? We have 3 fit options only now. Anyone from U21 or U23 that might be drafted in?

{Ed001's Note - maybe time to give Trent a run in his natural position?}


3.) 25 Apr 2018 08:14:07
Be a good chance against stoke at the weekend maybe and play Gomez at rb.


4.) 25 Apr 2018 08:19:41
Good shout Ed to be fair. Gomez back to RB. Hendo probably needs a rest? Can you think of any youngsters he might call on or should the 3 senior fit CMs be able to play all remaining games in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - there is plenty of rest after next week's game. So they should be enough. If not maybe we could give Williams a chance, at 22 he needs to get a game or two just to see if he is capable of raising his game. You only know for sure when they get a go. Sometimes a kid can stand out a mile but then shrink mentally and fail miserably in the adult game. Other kids look average in youth football but they get a lucky break and suddenly grow as players to look like they belong there. It really shouldn't be an issue to cope for 4 games with the three we have and then they get two weeks to rest before the final (hopefully).}


5.) 25 Apr 2018 08:28:14
Just made a post on another thread saying the same ed, I think it is time to push him up to the midfield, let's see how he handles it, I think he'll do really well plus there's no better time then now.


6.) 25 Apr 2018 08:40:46
Cheers ed. You make so much sense. I would have far less stress and grey hairs if I could talk to you everytime I get a little flustered or concerned in life lol. Have a good day mate.

{Ed001's Note - I would say that is the good thing about getting older that you get less flustered but me ma is blooming ancient and she still gets overly stressed about every little thing.}


7.) 25 Apr 2018 08:44:43
In terms of having enough in the tank it shouldn't be a problem Ed001. But we are also one errant kick from not having enough fit midfielders for the biggest game of the decade.

{Ed001's Note - then you give a youngster a chance and you never know you might unearth a future star. If we aren't going to give them a chance when injuries strike because of panicky fans we may as well scrap the academy altogether.}


8.) 25 Apr 2018 09:09:43
I’d like to see Hendo, Gini and Woodburn against Stoke and maybe Milner coming on last 30mins to rest Hendo for a bit.

We need TAA’s delivery from out wide against Stoke IMO.


9.) 25 Apr 2018 10:42:31
Fully agree ed001, but I'm dissapointed that we have to give them a chance now. I questioned at the time, and continue to question, why they are not as a rule present in every match day squad so they could have gotten some chances in a few of the 16 (yes that's right, 16) games this season where we have won by 3 or more goals? It does get annoying finding ourselves repeatedly unprepared for this.

{Ed001's Note - I expect the Prem will follow Serie A's lead and increase the number of subs available soon enough. Serie A did it because they wanted to help the Italian national side by giving youngsters more chances in the first team. Whether it would actually do that or not is arguable but it would certainly mean managers would have no excuse for not giving kids a chance. Though it would probably just see Guardiola demand another half billion to spend to fill the bench with expensive first team players....}


10.) 25 Apr 2018 13:07:47
Ed001 do you know has Jordan Williams been training with the 1st team? I know he played a bunch of games for Rochdale, but not since October and he hasn't been playing for the U23s. I'd imagine it's more likely Gini will play as the deep mid and one or two of Woodburn/ Jones/ Kane could get a start. I know they're younger but age doesn't seem to be a factor for Klopp if you're good enough.

{Ed001's Note - a lot of the young uns train with the first team and it swaps about, to get them used to being with the group.}


11.) 25 Apr 2018 20:54:55
Jordan Williams is currently on loan at Rochdale so I imagine he wouldn’t be an option unless recall was an option.

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}


12.) 26 Apr 2018 09:06:41
No Gordo, it was only a loan until January, but he suffered a knee injury at the end of October and hasn't kicked a football since.


13.) 26 Apr 2018 12:16:15
SGRED, I’d argue that Trent’s positioning would still find him out wide when playing RCM, just look at the positions Milner and the Ox take up throughout a game. Means he still gets to put in killer deliveries but also experience a game in midfield at the highest level. Also means if we play Gomez at RB that we can shift to a 3-4-3 when needed without having to bring an extra centre back on like we have been lately.
Cheers (3rd attempt at this post)


14.) 26 Apr 2018 12:17:51
Gordo - I believe his loan finished back in Jan. I just checked the Rochdale website and there is no mention of him (although they do have a Jordan Williams out on loan to Lincoln which threw me for a tick) . But he isn't injured AFAIK so Im guessing he needs to work harder to convince Critchley because he isn't getting into the U23 atm.


 

 

10 Nov 2017 11:03:01
Is there a Liverpool sharkpod yet eds👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - Right now my plan is to do them all next Thursday. I am either travelling or busy working until then.}


1.) 10 Nov 2017 12:29:45
Ok mate thanks.


2.) 10 Nov 2017 23:14:10
Looking forward to this, roll on next week, any chance when you get a spare moment next week Ed002 you can start the intergalactic legends team? Thanks mate.

{Ed002's Note - It may need to be the week after.}


3.) 11 Nov 2017 16:59:13
Silly question. How do you gain access to the old sharkpods? I've tried the search engine but for me it just brings up comments that has the word sharkpod in there.

{Ed033's Note - old sharkpods


 

 

02 Nov 2017 08:26:40
Any chance of a sharkpod eds👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - I will try to get to it in the coming days.}


1.) 02 Nov 2017 13:44:33
Thanks ed002 - you're awesome 👏😍.

Afternoon all
Quick question for everyone including eds1 and eds25 just for a different perspective.
Would any player from Man U get into our side at the min?
I would have to say no. What do you think.

{Ed001's Note - no, not that I can think of.}


1.) 14 Oct 2019 14:59:07
Are you talking about our starting 11 or squad? As for the 11, definitely no, squad the only I may consider is Bissaka.


2.) 14 Oct 2019 15:00:01
Fred is better than Fabinho.

That's what all my United supporting friends told me when he signed. Fred was in the Brazil squad ahead of Fabinho you know? He must be better.


3.) 14 Oct 2019 15:26:55
Hahaha! I’m better than Fred, and I’m garbage.


4.) 14 Oct 2019 15:36:16
They must be talking about the Fred (CF) who played in the World Cup, two cups ago. Both that Fred and this one are flops.


5.) 14 Oct 2019 18:17:21
Until recently, I totally forgot that Fred was still playing football period, not just playing for utd. Now regarding who would make our squad (none would make our starting lineup, really), I would take Rashford or Wan-Bissaka cos both can still improve with the right coaching, environment and guidance cos both are clearly talented. The rest? Keep it moving.


6.) 14 Oct 2019 19:32:44
Fred is Man UTD's modern day version of Anderson, but without the talent and free McDonald's vouchers.


7.) 14 Oct 2019 19:59:59
You'd be gutted if you was Brazilian and called Fred. Could of been named Ronaldinho, Fabinho or Carlos. But oh no, Fred 😂.

{Ed047's Note - I thought the worst Brazilian I’d ever seen was the one Stevie Wonder did on his misses but Fred‘s topped that and some.

And for me not one of them would get even close to your first 11 let alone the squad.


8.) 14 Oct 2019 22:59:10
Ed047, that deserves a response but I just don't have one.

{Ed047's Note - Thanks Burkey 😂


9.) 14 Oct 2019 23:51:20
Don’t see the hype about Rashford at all RW. He’s only talked about because he’s English and plays for Utd. He’s bang average if you ask me we’ve just got rid of someone on the same level in Ojo.


10.) 15 Oct 2019 03:14:15
Beckers Pecker - great name, by the way.
Rashford is absolutely overrated, but he can still be an extremely dangerous player when not monitored closely. His sheer pace and unpredictability, particularly when striking, means he cannot be ignored, no matter how bad Man Utd otherwise are.


11.) 15 Oct 2019 09:06:03
Danny mills was on sky sports earlier and was asked to pick his best 11 from both squads for Sunday's match and he picked our starting 11. No one from utd even got a mention not even pogba or De gea show how far we have come as a club instead of how far they have fallen.


12.) 15 Oct 2019 13:45:32
Fred's that bad, Mourinho even had to ask him which was his stronger foot and on which side he'd prefer to play on.
Right Said Fred.


13.) 15 Oct 2019 17:36:20
Sitting here wondering how long it takes before the performances on the field start reflecting on the accounts and the balance sheet. Because they still seem to be very popular and the cash register is pinging to record profits still. And there lies the danger. This allows them to walk around with an open chequebook as they have in recent years, and perhaps become a serious challenger once again.

I think OGS deserves a lifelong contract. Loyal servant to the club since so long, and all that. 😂.


14.) 15 Oct 2019 18:57:47
In our squad i would have de gea (decent bench warmer) wan bissaka, and probably James. In the team, none.


15.) 15 Oct 2019 20:06:07
Beckers, I see your point cos well right now, Rashford ain't doing jack. I just think like Wan-Bissaka, he is talented enough to be very good IF he has the right coach and environment cos his pace and movement is there. For ex. when Mane came to us, all he pretty much had was pace. But he improved a lot cos he too wanted to be great and now, he is world class, IMO. Rashford could be that IF he is determined to be great. I don't see that in him at a more than dreadful Utd side hence why I say, he should leave.


 

 

27 Sep 2019 10:46:30
Morning eds
Is there a priced agreed for Elliot yet. If not could the price rise if he keeps playing well?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time. Liverpool want to drag it out and hope Fulham reduce their asking price. Worst case is that Liverpool will seek agreement immediately prior to any tribunal. It is a pretty nasty way of trying to bully less well positioned clubs and the club should pay the asking price or at least negotiate sensibly.}


1.) 27 Sep 2019 11:38:34
I agree with Ed002, this whole big boy bully tactic against the smaller clubs doesn't sit well with me. We already did enough damage to Fulham with Clint Dempsey and now this? you don't want a position where clubs refuse to deal with one another but if LFC aren;t careful then they'll be struck off everyone's Christmas card list.


2.) 27 Sep 2019 12:56:09
I also agree with Ed002, but Dempsey has nothing to with it. In 2012, he was considered a valuable PL player and would have left regardless. I don’t think we damaged Fulham a great deal in that regard, through we may have damaged our relationship with them.
Nonetheless, the line about bullying less well-positioned clubs is spot on. Elliott is a player that has the potential to be worth 10-20 times what we’ll ever have to actually pay to Fulham, and our club officials should take account of that.


3.) 27 Sep 2019 13:14:46
My personal view on the signature of an academy player is that the fee should be fixed depending on a simple formula e. g. years at club, division new club is in etc. However, there should also be a fixed sell on percentage based on the a similar formula.

Just an idea. I haven’t copyrighted it but I would i insist on it being called the G1DGO formula.


4.) 27 Sep 2019 13:23:38
Not sure that this is related and tend to agree that a fair price should be found for these young players before we have to go to tribunal, but .

It wasn't so many years ago that Liverpool fans felt that the club was always being taken advantage of in transfers both in and out. The club has perhaps gone too far the other way now as a result. We tend to get better prices for our outgoings and don't pay over the odds for incoming players (VVD aside) . Personally I'm happy we are being more savvy in the market although it seems obvious we could temper that in places.


5.) 27 Sep 2019 13:29:16
One change. "The G1DGO Kid-go Formula"

{Ed025's Note - i think thats powdered baby milk PB.. :)


6.) 27 Sep 2019 13:32:27
Good idea there G1DGO

I also agree clubs shouldn’t be bullied but the problem also arises because there’s no need for a fee to be agreed beforehand and so there’s arguably an incentive for Fulham ask a high number and hope. worst case is a tribunal.

7mln still seems an awful lot for a kid never having played near the top level even if he does seem to be extremely talented. The best way for both sides to get a fair share of actual end value they’ve helped create is the sell on clause or maybe a percentage based on total wages.


7.) 27 Sep 2019 13:50:24
Potclay - I agree that it is good we are now being more savvy in the transfer market, but taking a potentially enormously valuable player from the club who developed him for such a comparatively small amount of money is a different situation. Football needs less well-positioned clubs to develop talent, and they should absolutely be rewarded for successfully doing so.

SGRed, 7m might seem like a lot for what you have described, but there is no way Fulham are getting someone as good for similar money.


8.) 27 Sep 2019 14:32:13
I'm not going to pretend I know anything about youth transfers but if elliot does well in any appearance he makes for us would that increase his value in a tribunal?

{Ed002's Note - They may or may not be influenced by any appearances - perhaps paying what Fulham want is the answer?}


9.) 27 Sep 2019 13:51:56
As with Solanke the fee will be negotiated based on his status at the time of him signing, so that won't change regardless of how many appearances he makes, goals he scores or crossbars he hits.
But yeah, Liverpool should really just agree a reasonable fee and stop haggling over pennies. He really has excellent potential and would be playing for Fulham this season if still there.


10.) 27 Sep 2019 15:36:07
Given the ludicrous amounts supposedly paid to agents to secure ludicrous fees paid for some players, surely paying Fulham what they’re asking or somewhere near it - I assume it’s not crazy money - would seem the right thing to do as well as sensible for any future deals rather to developing a reputation that would hinder future deals.

{Ed002's Note - As I understand matters, they were looking for something like £6M.}


11.) 27 Sep 2019 17:13:03
Let tribunal decide. Its what it's there for. It worked with Ings and Solanke as selling club want high price and buying club want lower and tribunal usually sets it somewhat in the middle if both parties aren't willing to meet halfway.


12.) 27 Sep 2019 20:08:58
If they looking for around £6m (as Ed002 is saying), I cannot understand why we wouldn't just pay it.

Even if his career doesn't go quite as expected, we could still recoup more than that in 2-3 years.


13.) 27 Sep 2019 20:38:06
Hardly a fortune £6m.


14.) 27 Sep 2019 19:23:36
I'm not disagreeing ed they should just pay them what they ask or the fee should be agreed before the transfer but as I said I don't know anything about youth transfers.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree, but it is not how the club has operated.}

£6mil does seem a lot for a child regardless of what he may become later in his career although I agree we should be fair an honourable when buying academy players from so called lesser clubs. I’m still disgusted over the whole Jay Spearing Bolton fiasco. We’re great on the pitch not so much with our conduct of it though.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have pulled in a lot for the academy players they have let go - sort of the going rate. I would agree it has stated to get out of hand.}


16.) 29 Sep 2019 08:07:15
Bad carry on from the club, 6million isn't astronomical to a club like Liverpool and the lad certainly seems to have enough potential to justify such a fee. Can't fathom why we have to be difficult to deal with in everything we do.

Hi eds
Any info on what’s happening with Martin skrtel. Signed a contract and cancelled it?

{Ed002's Note - Gasperini explained to Skrtel that he should not expect to be a starter (as they have six or seven CBs) and that he would be used as cover. Skrtel apparently expected to start - so his contract has been cancelled. Nothing more sinister.}


1.) 02 Sep 2019 16:09:59
Any chance he ends up with Stevie up in Glascow?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know if there is interest or the time to complete it. Certainly he rejected them once this summer.}


2.) 02 Sep 2019 17:23:31
Ed002, because he's cancelled his contract before the transfer window has ended, is he not just basically a free agent and can sign for someone after the deadline? Forgive me if I'm completely wrong though please.

{Ed002's Note - No. He would need an exemption and he has no rational for doing that.}


3.) 02 Sep 2019 20:17:17
Thank you for the reply Ed002. I wasn't aware that was the case.

So is it a case of if he doesn't find a new club today, he's basically not going to be able to play for anyone until January?

{Ed002's Note - I never said that. It relates to transfer windows.}


4.) 02 Sep 2019 20:52:47
Thanks again Ed002. I really don't wish to disturb you too much so if anyone else wants to chip in please do.

I'll try to spell it out if it's a case of transfer windows. If Skrtel doesn't find a club today, he'll need to find a club in Bulgaria, Romania, Russia or Australia if he wants to play again this year?

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the issue you are trying to create. He has to move to a country where the transfer window is still open or get an exception - which I said originally.}

Have you read, The age of football by David goldblatt. Just wondering if it’s worth buying?

Best signings for me pulisic, wan basaca, and Tierney.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 17:44:01
Wan-Bissaka has it all to prove in a team in decline at a massive fee hanging over his head.

If I had to say who is the best siginging of the season, well not really a new signing but a player who will probably be leaving Villa come the end of this season after signing a new contract will have to be John Mcginn.


2.) 08 Aug 2019 17:46:38
Ndombele and wan bissaka for me.


3.) 08 Aug 2019 18:07:08
Praet and Tiellemans at Leicester for me, that’s good business and they look like they’re going to be a good footballing side with the midfield they’ve now got.


4.) 08 Aug 2019 18:12:02
Tierney misses an awful lot of games.


5.) 08 Aug 2019 18:17:46
David Luiz for less than 10x what Man Utd paid for Maguire. He has a high profile mistake (which will happen to everyone except VVD) but apart form that, he's a very good player and defender. I also rate him as a better defender than Harry Maguire. Absolute Madness.


6.) 08 Aug 2019 18:19:42
Leicester look a quite tasty prospect. They and Wolves, will do some damage. Spurs have also improved as well. Utd? They look desperate and the inherent issues they have are yet to be fixed. Imagine, they have EIGHT CB's to choose from. That in it of itself, is a complete train wreck.


7.) 08 Aug 2019 18:26:22
Rodri for me. Top player in the making.


8.) 08 Aug 2019 18:32:54
When you look at it, keeping the team together and having some consistency may not be a bad thing. And looking at the business others have done I’m not convinced that there’s been anything we’ve desperately missed out on, Maguire for £80+m still makes me laugh though.


9.) 08 Aug 2019 18:38:44
Totally agree Irish, he makes City even stronger.

I also think Pepe to Arsenal, . Pepe, lacacette and Aubameyang is a decent front line.


10.) 08 Aug 2019 19:17:08
That’s a cracking front line - one of the best in Europe except perhaps ourselves, City, Barcelona and maybe one or two others.

The only problem is it’s their midfield and defence that needed fixing, they still lack any real grit.

I think they could be the Liverpool of 13/ 14.


11.) 08 Aug 2019 19:26:42
I think pepe to arsenal looks a good signing. They have some great attacking players and every window they buy more. I just think someone should tell them their defence is their problem.

Hate say it but i think the team that will imp ove the most due to signings i think itll be utd. I think they'll get top 4. If maguire and de gea form a partnership. I dunno though. it could all blow up in there face with that maguire fee.


12.) 08 Aug 2019 20:20:07
Robbiesline, United still have Pogba who is a disruptive influence, they’ve sold one of their top scorers and haven’t replaced him, I’m not convinced by Maguire, he’s slow on the turn and can be done by pace, he’s not an £80m player. Desperation signing. I think sixth is an achievement for them.


13.) 08 Aug 2019 20:46:40
Spot on, 6 Times. Toby Alderweireld is three times the CB Maguire wishes he was and even I would not pay 80m for him. I will say his age would not let him command such a fee and even then, he is just a top CB and according to Ed01, Spurs's best player.

It does look like him to be fair. Surly he wouldn’t be just sat there on he’s own though.

I thought the stewards had an absolute shockers this weekend.
The start of the season there was no mention of using black and white flags more. Then Ferrari knock Lewis off the a few weeks back. We are told we are going to see the flag used more.
The we see multiple times cars getting knocked off and no flags.
Then no black flag for Leclerc. What are they thinking.

He’s a excellent player. Unfortunately he’s not going to sit on our bench and it would take more than a cheeky bid.

That tackle from mane was outstanding! He is just a brilliant player. Other teams must be so jealous.
Am gutted that there’s an International break now. Because I would love to play Man U next week!

Hi eds
Has keita passed he English test yet?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know but I cannot imagine the extension requested in July would be more than 90 days so I suspect he has.}

I thought vettel looked back to he's best yesterday and if Leclerc wants the lead then catch up and over take. Don’t get me wrong Leclerc Ferrari number 1 and will be a world champion one day but second year in F1 and he’s moaning and bitching like a spoiled kid. You’ve got to earn respect not demand it!

{Ed001's Note - Ferrari's can't follow closely, Vettel knew that, which is why he said it. They had agreed before the race started that Leclerc would give him a tow down the straight into the lead and then swap back afterwards, which is why Leclerc never fought it. He had every right to complain as he was quicker but unable to show it due to Ferrari's front wing not working properly in turbulent air.}
