Hello Ed02, I remember we were linked with him in the past and would be a very screwed signing. Sabitzer who moved to Bayern, hearing he is unsettled and available for a cut price.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps when Brendan Rodgers takes over.}

It looks like we are in for both Vitinho and Otavio of Porto. Low cost transfers.

Transition_Time

{Ed0666's Note - the player you referenced is called Vitinha and not Vatinho who has questionable morals sexually. Apparently Munich are sniffing around him so. I for one am elated to be purchasing a myriad of players that speak Portuguese. Who wouldn’t want the cream of Brazil and Portugal playing for Liverpool?


1.) 30 Mar 2022 19:53:26
My bad yes Vitinha. Midfielder. Seems klopp has the klipperty on him.

{Ed0666's Note - you mean ‘for him’ ?


2.) 30 Mar 2022 20:24:52
666 whilst we're doing an English lesson, it's 'myriad players', not 'a myriad of players'. Use myriad the same way you would use the word 'various'. You wouldn't say 'various of players'. Myriad means the same as various, but implies more complex connections.

Anyway. They sound like great players.

Anyone noticed that Liverpool are starting to be linked with more and more players in the last few months. This makes a difference from the last few years. Is it an indication that now Edwards is leaving, someone at the club is opening up to the media a bit more?

{Ed0666's Note - I appreciate you pointing out my mistake Stonehenge. I don’t have a formal education and I am grateful when posters check me when I make myriad grammatical errors! I only recently learnt when to use ‘your’ & ‘you’re’ in the right context. An embarrassing admission at 50 years of age. I actually wished I’d gone to school instead of bunking off for most of my education. But I really do appreciate it when posters pull me up on my spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax et al because it helps me improve. So thankyou.


3.) 30 Mar 2022 21:16:05
Ed was right first time.
There are a myriad of websites that will confirm the meaning and use of the word myriad.
your well come.


4.) 30 Mar 2022 21:18:17
I thought Ed0666 was correct in his use of myriad because it was used as a noun (which has "a" ahead of it) rather than an adjective. That said, I believe that the fact it often comes ahead of another noun means it can be used in both ways. And that was my contribution to the confusion, lol.

{Ed0666's Note - I appreciate the objective advocacy Reynard thanks mate .


5.) 30 Mar 2022 21:33:20

Your embarrassing youreself now 666.

{Ed0666's Note - how so?


9.) 31 Mar 2022 00:37:23
Myriad can be used as either an adjective or noun:

There are myriad people who disagree.

There are a myriad of people who disagree.

Both sentences are grammatically correct.

I actually used this phrase last week in a meeting with a couple of our self-facilitating media nodes where I work. They didn't get it. Probably because they're under 30 and I'm a sad 51, year old who tried to subtly take the pi55.

So is it a Murial or a Murial I'm looking at pray tell Mr higher education point out people's spelling mistakes man.

Ed02, you said long back that klopp has the klipperty for Otavio of Porto. Are we still in the mix?

Transition_Time

{Ed002's Note - I would say so, but he is now attracting the interest of others.}


1.) 28 Mar 2022 23:27:40
We're we not looking at him for the January transfer window instead of Diaz. Spurs forced our hand going for Diaz but read somewhere we were in negotiation with Porto over him at the time. Was there any truth is this ed2.

{Ed002's Note - I thought I dealt with this.}


2.) 28 Mar 2022 23:48:08
Hi Ed, what about Vitinha also from Porto, seeing lots of links to him. Any interest there?

{Ed002's Note - Vitinha (CM/AM) Another JM special who had a successful loan at Wolves. Porto are not keen on selling nbut any side offering his €40M release clause in cash could put it in the hands of the player. Bayern Munich and Lazio have a declared interest. Scouts from many sides have been watching him, including Liverpool and Roma.}


3.) 29 Mar 2022 06:30:21
Thanks buddy. He is a bit different to Diaz. He is more in the Coutinho mould.


4.) 29 Mar 2022 14:28:44
Thanks a lot Ed, really help a lot in telling which of the many rumours have at least a hint of possible truth to them (not many of them) . Very appreciated.


 

 

16 Mar 2022 17:00:09
Hello Ed02, if you are around, is it true that Origi is in advance talks over a move to AC Milan?

Cheers.

Transition_Time

{Ed002's Note - Divock Origi (S) Out of contract in the summer and wants regular game time. The interest of West Ham, Wolves, Mainz and Cercle Brugge has gone due for now. Fenerbahce were interested and could provide an option still. A third party has been offering him around Italy with Lazio and Milan showing an interest but both would only want him as cover and that may not suit him.}


1.) 16 Mar 2022 20:34:26
Thanks mate. Do you think he would remain in England?


2.) 17 Mar 2022 01:45:30
Not if he’s playing for Milan - it’d be a b***er of a job getting to training every day.

Saudi Mane is an absolute legend of this football club. It all started with the signing of him. A two footed powerhouse who could hit the ball clean with both the feet. A legend off the pitch.
And his best goal is the one he scored against Bayern.
Long ball over the top is always a nightmare for any attacker running forward to control. Excellent first touch, Keeper comes out and he turns him around completely and slotting with his left feet.

Take a bow.
#LegendMane.

{Ed014's Note - I thought he was from Senegal ?‍♂️


1.) 17 Jun 2022 19:38:33
I think his best goal was against Man City when he cut across it with his left foot and It flew into the top corner.


2.) 17 Jun 2022 20:03:52
Not a bad shout @Adam. But Bayern was special. The composure was top class. The way he rounded the worlds best goal keeper was pure filth.


3.) 17 Jun 2022 21:17:05
His 1st goal against the arsenal.


4.) 17 Jun 2022 21:54:42
Both great goals! I think I’m leaning towards the Bayern goal. As you said, composure was top class! Also loved the backheel against arsenal (I think) .


5.) 17 Jun 2022 21:59:20
What about his first goal for Liverpool against Arsenal at the Emirates? Collects the ball on the right wing, muscle a couple of defenders off the ball, cuts in onto his left foot and then unleashes and rocket into the back of the net. It's either that or that cheeky backheal versus Watford I think.

YNWA.


6.) 17 Jun 2022 22:04:08
He is still my favorite player of the Klopp era. I just wish he had kept his mouth shut when asked about his Liverpool future.


7.) 17 Jun 2022 22:50:07
That Arsenal goal on his league debut tops it for me.


8.) 18 Jun 2022 01:16:37
Trouble with the Bayern goal is that it was all Neuers fault awful goalkeeping in that instance.


9.) 18 Jun 2022 07:45:34
Arsenal goal was excellent. But Bayern tops for me. Against arguably the best keeper in the world and he schooled him for good.


10.) 18 Jun 2022 07:52:52
Agreed stone.


11.) 18 Jun 2022 09:35:29
His first goal against Arsenal was my favourite, he was electric back then. He has been a joy to watch, shame to see him go but it is absolutely the right timing. I hope he goes well at Bayern!

I am really excited about our transfer business and I am really looking forward to the evolution of this team. Carvalho I think is going to be a baller!

Daylight robbery.

{Ed001's Note - what has the bull about a transfer committee to do with anything other than showing how ignorant Harry is again? The committee is not a real thing, no more than it was when Shanks or Paisley were in charge and the boot room were giving recommendations on who to sign. At the end of the day Klopp makes the final decision, not a committee.}

4.) 17 Jun 2022 15:32:08
A 30yo player who's showed signs of decline, with one year left on his contract and no intention of renewing, I don't see what's so funny about extracting a decent fee for that.


5.) 17 Jun 2022 15:35:02
A good deal with someone in the last year of the contract.


6.) 17 Jun 2022 15:37:33
Good deal in the end for us we only paid 31 million with 2.5 million in add ons 6 years ago. Plus replacement has already arrived. Good business by the club in my opinion.


7.) 17 Jun 2022 15:42:50
Say Harry, how was the City title parade?


8.) 17 Jun 2022 15:44:32
Wish him well. What a great signing he was. He's already scored a great goal at Bayerns ground. Now for a few more. So long Sadio. Thanks for the service and good luck.


9.) 17 Jun 2022 15:58:57
Completely agree.

He helped kickstart the good times again.

Only problem is my 12 year old gets home from school in a minute.

Have to explain to him why the guy in photo above his bed holding the CL trophy is no longer one of our players…

Best accentuate the positives?.


10.) 17 Jun 2022 16:04:38
I agree. I thought Manes decline was at its peak from Feb-May this year it was like playing with 10 men with him.

He was a great player for us and Bayern have signed themselves a player that will no doubts produce the goods for them for a few years.

Manes on the decline at 30 but we currently have 8 other players in the squad who are all 30 and above and 1 more who will be 30 in Oct.

It’s an end of an era for me and I’m thankful for everything he’s done for us but things move on and I look forward to seeing our new look front line next season. But I’m not going to slag Mane off out of bitterness.


11.) 17 Jun 2022 16:05:04
Wish him the very best. He's been a phenomenon and a catalyst for the Klopp era. No fuss, no drama, no photoshoots, no flashy clothes/ cars. Just an elite pro with the heart of a lion.

Thank you for everything, Sadio. Legend.


12.) 17 Jun 2022 16:40:42
Better then going for nothing.


13.) 17 Jun 2022 16:53:20
He is worth more talent wise but contract length meant lower price.

He was a great servant and should be treated as a legend and with love by everyone associated with the club.

One mistimed joke should not tarnish anything. He has always handled himself with great professionalism and dignity throughout his time and played a huge part in many many trophies. I wish him nothing but the best for his future. Utter legend of our club.


14.) 17 Jun 2022 16:58:08
100%, great player, very consistent for the team over a number of years. He turned out to be an absolute steal when we purchased him.

Glad to see Harry has found his balls after disappearing when it looked like Liverpool might actually win all 4 trophies ?. Welcome back, your nonsense has been missed.


15.) 17 Jun 2022 17:01:54
Can I ask- did Harry actually change allegiances or is it just a little slagging? I missed when it happened.

{Ed0666's Note - Harry is currently taking lessons in Arabic & Geordie


16.) 17 Jun 2022 17:14:31
Excellent purchase when it happened and an excellent sale now. The man should rightly be remembered as one of the club greats.

No comment on the persistent bull that infects this page since over a decade.


17.) 17 Jun 2022 16:38:20
Thanks for everything you’ve done Mane and good luck in the future. Bring on next season!


18.) 17 Jun 2022 17:38:19
Best of luck to him at Bayern, he'll do well there.

Important to remember that Mane was a key player for us, helped us win everything we won and is a world class player.


19.) 17 Jun 2022 17:45:07
All this talk of decline? Can’t we just celebrate his contribution to the team and wish him well.


20.) 17 Jun 2022 18:00:07
To be fair JK23, age has nothing to do with decline. Ronaldo arguably peaked between 30-35. Jamie Vardy too. It's a case by case basis.

For example Van Dijk and Matip looked as imperious as ever, but Henderson was often subbed off around 60-75 minutes because his legs are going and his gametime has to be managed.

For me, Mane lost a yard of pace over the last 18 months. It made him less effective as a winger, and thus we replaced him with Diaz. As it turned out, Mane was pretty nifty in the centre forward role so he did a job there for the last few months at the club. But make mo mistake that he is not a world class striker, as he once was a world class winger. His hold up play isn't good enough for one, but that's no slight on his overall time with us. It's just not his natural game.

Having said all that, the Bundesliga is a weaker league and defenders there tend to look like rabbits in headlights when anybody runs at them; pace or not. Robben and Ribery played on the wing until about 35 before they were finished at that level. So i do believe Mane will walk into their side on the left wing and probably continue to bag 20-25 goals a season for the duration of his 3 year contract.

As much as his interviews have wound me up the last 4 weeks, i do wish him all the best. For me he has done enough to be remembered as a legend. The timing feels spot on though in my opinion.


21.) 17 Jun 2022 18:01:41
My comment was more about how we laughed off a derisory £23m offer. Holding out for £42m and sell for £28m.

Huff the add-ons, player in decline my backside. He is up for the ballon d’or. So I stand by my comment, we got robbed. Mané has been kicked from pillar to post and never misses a game, always the most likely to skin a player. Fit as a butcher’s dog after playing how many games this season? And humble with it. A rare commodity.

Salah is the player in decline and still playing his “greedy as” football, yet he is the one we are stuck with. I am happy to eat my hat if Salah has a stellar season and will eat two hats if he signs a new contract.

Time stamp this mofo post.


22.) 17 Jun 2022 18:10:05
You’ll never Walk Alone Sadio! Thank you.


23.) 17 Jun 2022 18:44:32
Salah has scored much more goals in 5 seasons than Mane did in 6,has just had his 2nd most productive season and HE'S the one in decline? Liking someone more than Salah does not miraculously make them a better footballer than Salah.


24.) 17 Jun 2022 18:49:16
Mk my 30 comment was just me being vacuous mate as I’ve seen it written on here many a time not just about Mane but also Salah as a reason to sell both was they were approaching 30. The only forward that’s seems to get away with it is Bobby and out of the 3 for me he’s the one who’s shown the most decline over the last few seasons and last season he contributed the least but we cannot mention that as the narrative is Mane, Salah or Jota cost us games or titles due to being wasteful.


25.) 17 Jun 2022 19:23:58
Certainly @Irish.
Never wanted to come back but I missed the hypocrisy over here lol. It was time to expose a few which I would gladly do again and again.
And regarding the balls, glad to see Liverpool singing “ we almost won the league” for the third time I guess? Lol.


26.) 17 Jun 2022 19:27:35
Sadio is a beast of a footballer, still one of the best out there on the flanks, Balon D’Or-worthy and the cornerstone signing of Klopp’s revolution. Won the lot and left us with magnificent memories. And most importantly, a true gentleman. Lovely, Humble with a mean competitive streak and a credit to his people in Senegal. See ya soon, bro and thanks for all the memories. YNWA!


27.) 17 Jun 2022 19:41:28
Agree on that JK23. Good as he once was, Bobby is an injury prone squad player now. If he doesn't accept a huge pay cut this will be his last season with us.


28.) 17 Jun 2022 21:48:08
Salah is not on the decline. He is exhausted. Mane was on vacation in the Afcon until the final while Salah played 120 minutes 4 games and carried the very very average Egypt team to a final. He needs a rest and Klopp could have rested him more. Especially when we signed Diaz and Minamino was scoring for fun in the cups.


29.) 17 Jun 2022 21:49:57
155 goals and 61 assists for Mo in about 45 games less. Clearly Mane is better in opposite world.


30.) 17 Jun 2022 22:44:40
He wanted out, didn't he?
That sort of weakens our position in what to do with him.
We can't begrudge him his move and we should all move on.


31.) 17 Jun 2022 22:06:09
I love it when Ed001 tears into Harry. Absolutely brilliant. It's almost like Harry wants Ed to rip his arse and he makes it way too easy.


32.) 17 Jun 2022 20:18:07
Thought the league is done after Haaland harry. Why still so bothered with Liverpool's transfer activity. Take a season's break and come back next summer maybe.


33.) 18 Jun 2022 04:24:26
Bissouma - year left on his contract. Goes for the same money as Mané.
Gabriel Jesus - year left on his contract, awful stats, crap striker. Only thing on his side is age. Seems to be going for more money than Mané.

Daylight robbery. We were done. Had our pants pulled down.

And yes Salah scores goals but he passes the ball twice in CL final instead of being greedy and out of form/ tired or worse still in decline (since Jan) and no7 is in the bag.

Firmino is the conduit. Without him those around him struggle. 0 goals in 3 finals? Where is the creativity coming from next season without him? Thiago? Can we rely on him for 40+ games? Same with Harvey and Carvalho - risky pinning our season on two youngsters.

Looks like it is the Trent and Robbo show. Again. But teams surely going to suss this one out sooner or later.

Great nail biting season ahead. I cannot wait.

But Salah is not the Messiah (“he’s a very naughty boy” ….

{Ed001's Note - we have not had our pants pulled down. You get what you can for a player with a known history of going on strike when he wants to leave. If anything we did well to get more than £20m. Some of you will just find anything to whine about when it comes to transfers. What difference does it even make? We used to let players go on the cheap all the time as a thank you for their service to us when we had replaced them. He has been replaced, he should be going with the blessing of the fans and the hope that any money Bayern feel they have saved on the transfer fee can go towards the good causes that Mane supports.}

3.) 09 May 2022 19:55:03
Thanks Ed . I would prefer if possible financially to keep hold of Mane for a bit longer I think he’s still at the required quality for us to compete . I would love Nunez but can’t see us being able to afford another forward player in addition to adding a couple more . I think if we have a budget to play with this summer we should look to a back up right back and a central midfield player so we can take the opportunity to rest Fab a bit more through the season.


4.) 09 May 2022 19:48:23
Love to get Nunez! We’ve no interest tho do we?


5.) 09 May 2022 20:25:16
As good as mane and salah are if they have an eye on moving and we get offered a good wad of cash sentiment has to go right out the window . At some point we need to have the balls to evolve with new players who can do a similar job coached in our system under klopp and his teams system as diaz has proven.


6.) 09 May 2022 20:57:38
I agree but I think it would be damaging to lose both in one window and I still think they both have loads left in the tanks . Plan for the next guys absolutely but the timing of the exits is key we want to get a decent fee for them but just before they begin the decline I don’t think it’s that stage yet but contract decisions are going to be vital as to when we move them on or not . I hope we make the right decisions for the football club.


7.) 10 May 2022 08:12:45
Aren’t Carvalho and Ramsey purchases a RB and a MF?

Plus we seem to be trying to sign Tchouameni, another MF.

If we sell one of Mane/ Salah, or both, we will have funds to replace.

3.) 09 May 2022 20:22:39
City getting Haaland makes little difference to us. The same points are available at the start and we can only effect them by getting 6 points.

City previously had aguero and were beatable and aguero was one of the best strikers in the league if not the world.

I don't argue they will score more goals but they will still drop points and city go from having 1 striker that pep chooses not to use to 2. And for all we know haaland could get injured in the first gane and they are back to where they are now.

So I'm far from throwing in the towel next season before a ball is kicked!

Harry must have got his wired crossed and posted on this forum rather than the City forum.


8.) 10 May 2022 10:17:40
Things that do strike me about Haaland are that he tends to score in twos and threes against lower opponents, seems to struggle against better sides, also Pep failed to get the best out of Ibrahimovic, a very similar player physically to Haaland. Let’s hope this is another failed Mancunian vanity project like Grealish/ Pogba/ Sancho.

The evidence of his impact on the team is absolutely overwhelming. To add, the only game he started in which we dropped points was Man City (A) - statistically the hardest game of the season besides Liverpool (A) .
Thiago’s technical quality is irrepressible and takes this team to a Liverpool even Man City can’t live with. I do not wish to dismiss other midfielders in our squad, they all have a part to play, but I’m convinced the opposition simply cannot muster the will to chase Thiago around for 90 minutes with very little prospect of achieving anything productive.

Harry, that may be your best ever post👌.


3.) 02 May 2022 07:42:30
TT, you should have added “when fit and on form”, the same as anyone else.
And that’s been part of the issue with him hasn’t it?
Thiago has his weaker points but what I have learned over the past almost two seasons watching him at Liverpool is that his strong points far outweigh those weaker.
I was not convinced that he was right for Liverpool but, when he’s on song, he most definitely is and is a joy to watch.
I do wince when I see him go into 50/ 50s now, we need to keep him fit.
Interestingly, Liverpool’s share of possession at Man City was 45% I think, and that share has remained the same or less on the whole in the past few League encounters.

While he's playing like an absolute king at the moment, I think he's improved as the season has progressed, and wasn't as influential in the first half of the season. Don't want to detract from him in any way, as he's a filthy delight of a player, but others kept us going in the earlier parts of the season and that shouldn't be forgotten either.


5.) 02 May 2022 10:23:36
Don't you wish we'd bought him in 2016.


6.) 02 May 2022 10:25:54
You win as a team and you lose as a team.

Each and every player has had their magnificent moments it’s just some have had more than others.

But we wouldn’t be in the position we are currently in if it wasn’t for the team ethos and the glue (Klopp) that holds that ethos together.


7.) 02 May 2022 10:35:17
The Juicer, please share Thiago's weak points and why you think he was not right for LFC when he signed and who you would have signed in his place? Really, serious question.


8.) 02 May 2022 10:58:35
@Juicer
There is absolutely no weakness in Thiago given he is 30. He is not and would never run like a donkey on the pitch. The guy is a technical footballer.


9.) 02 May 2022 11:15:57
Well his obvious weakness was that he couldn't keep fit.


10.) 02 May 2022 11:26:25
Exactly. Nobody ever doubted his footballing merits. The issue was always his ability to remain fit and game ready.


11.) 02 May 2022 11:35:25
Yes, durability I suppose, recovery pace when he loses possession is not the best. Man City turned him and Fabinho in the recent league game and caused us big problems.
He’s not as mobile as some, though not a donkey, lol.
Agree with the points others make above, Thiago shines when others allow him to.
We’re not a one man team, the sum of the parts and all that, though any injury to various key players can affect the whole.
I really like the fact that he’s always bought into the team though, he’s always celebrating goals and giving encouragement to others.
When I saw him distraught before the League Cup Final, it struck me deeply and made me want to support him more than I had been.
So I’ve finally seen the light you can say.


12.) 02 May 2022 11:59:52
Thiago played more premier league games than Hendo last season and I think the only midfielder to play more than him was Fab.

If we’re going to beat players with a stick for being injured then let’s at least be consistent with it and not show double standards.


13.) 02 May 2022 12:06:21
@Juicer,
Thiago is different to Kante (who was the best in recovery of the football) but he couldn’t pass to save his life. A 23 year old Jordan Henderson is who you play besides Thiago 😀😀.
Thiago is a playmaker. And arguably the best in the world today.

{Ed001's Note - Kante couldn't pass? I give up, if this is what passes for analysis these days. Kante is a very good passer of the ball.}


14.) 02 May 2022 12:27:19
Can I disagree with you Ed01 😀😀. If he could pass like Molby Chelsea wouldn’t ever buy Jorginho.

{Ed001's Note - oh give it a rest. You really are just embarrassing yourself now. No one is comparing him to Molby but you. And Jorginho can't pass like Molby either, so what is the point in that idiotic comparison?}


15.) 02 May 2022 12:33:08
True JK but the OP has posted about our success rate when Thiago is fit. Imagine where Liverpool might be in the League if he played more than 50% of the games. I don't think Henderson or any of our other midfielders hold such stats.


16.) 02 May 2022 12:46:06
That he simply cannot pass Ed01. If you think he is the one who dictates the game from the middle for Chelsea then let’s agree to disagree.

{Ed001's Note - being able to pass the ball is nothing to do with dictating the play. Why do you not understand basic concepts of football? You are so full of ridiculous hyperbole it makes every point you try and make utter nonsense and you just ruin any good thing you say with stupidity like this. Kante is a very good passer of the ball, if you fail to see that then I can't help you.}


17.) 02 May 2022 13:15:39
Kante's passing accuracy is a few percent less than Jorginho. want to shovel Harry? 🤣🤣.


18.) 02 May 2022 13:19:41
Irish that’s very true mate. His big injury came last season from a nasty tackle as well. Without that tackle his injury record here wouldn’t be all that bad as he’s only had a few minor injuries this season.

Just on the subject of missing players Vvd was a huge loss last season and we lost Gomez literally 1-2 weeks after him. Up until the start of Jan we were top of the league at a canter with just Matip and Fab back there. Once we lost Matip (half time v WBA I think) was when we fell off that cliff.


19.) 02 May 2022 14:23:47
The Juicer, I appreciate your analysis of Thiago and respect your opinions on why you don't think we should have signed him or or with the flaws you see in him. All I would say to that is that IMO, he was the exact player we needed, one who can dictate play and be an absolute threat on the ball with his passing ability and his ability to unlock defences with his incisive passes that can split open a defence.

Also, his ability to manipulate the opposition with his eyes is stuff NFL QB's do to the opposing defence to trick them into going left whereas the ball is going right where the open receiver is. Furthermore, his ball recovery, pressing, chasing and tackling are great assets to have in our system and at nearly 31, the guy has improved massively to even what we all saw of him at Bayern, IMO. His flaws? Sure, he is not the fittest nor the most durable BUT if he is playing more games than say Hendo (like JK23 said) who is supposed to more durable then can one really complain? Peace and Love, bro.


20.) 02 May 2022 14:48:10
One thing I’d like to add to Thiago is we don’t expect him to give the ball away and when he does it gets highlighted more.

But the balls he does sometimes give away are more adventurous than what some of our other midfielders maybe don’t try as often. And when they do come off they don’t just put us on the front foot but the right foot as Thiago (like KDB) has the ability to thread a ball onto a players stride which can make a world of difference.

Only Vvd and Jones have a higher pass percentage in the league than Thiago but Jones only averages around 35 passes a game where as Thiago is 65 plus and even been in the triple figures of late.


21.) 02 May 2022 17:34:32
Irrelevant @Irish as most of his passes are sideways and more sideways. Kante is and always will be the best ball recoverer in the league. That’s about it. If you insist he is a pass master like scholes and kroos then Good might big man.


22.) 03 May 2022 02:09:00
JK, if you remember, Henderson has gone through the standard "season long slating" for whatever seems to be the flavor of the moment. At the time it was passing backwards and sideways with his partner in crime Wijnaldum. Since it is not fashionable to remain too long on slating one player, when there are 10 others to pick from, it has moved on. I guess it's Thiago now, even though he has been putting in spectacular performances.

I'm not directing this at anyone in particular; I have been consistently criticizing Keita for more than 2 years. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Opinons on here are like a pendulum. Taking wild swings from extreme like to extreme dislike. Hard to keep up.

History doesn’t give any privileges. Success certainly does and that comes of hard work and excellent planning.
By your logic City shouldn’t get any preference. They don’t have a rich history like UTD and LFC.
“You only throw stones at a tree where there are apples” ?? you don’t throw on an empty tree. Do you.

Disagree there Ed025. Football has never been a level playing field. But England compared to other regions are in far better shape.
There is hardly any “Have not’s”. Aston Villa have made two good signings (one is Coutinho) . Do you place them in the Privilege class?
Every owners are rich in England. Period.
If the top 6 joins super league the remaining will have another new top 6. It’s as simple as that.
Liverpool were rotten ten years ago struggling to attract both players and sponsorships.
The club never got any privileges.

{Ed025's Note - their history gives them privileges TT and I suppose that’s fair enough. But don’t try to convince me that skys darling 6 don’t get preferential treatment mate..

How could there be poor when all clubs across the division gets almost equal share of the TV rights compared to La liga or Spain. The amount of money Nottingham Forest could spend this year is more than what a top 4 club in Germany could.
Well it certainly doesn’t help when you spend £500 mill on dross and then blame it on FFP and 5 subs.

Transition_Time

{Ed025's Note - Everton’s wasteful spending is a direct result of trying to play catch-up with the chosen ones TT. Stupid I agree but the gap between the have’s and have not’s is getting wider and clubs like us have panicked so as not to be left behind.
The sooner you and your privileged buddies piss off to the super league the better..

Coz Mr klopp prefer Keita over both Jones and AOC. Simples. Gallagher is younger than Jones whose tearing up the league with palace. Jones can’t hide behind age anymore. He has to play or he goes.

Lol this has no reactance to support @Navy
His transfer fee is through the roof and we are committed to pay €100 mill to Benfica (no matter what) when we sell him we would want more than that and that’s not happening to me
Where as Haaland only cost them £50 mill in transfer fee. And there are admirers for him (Real and PSG)
