No space in the 22 for Harry Wilson or Neco, I'm guessing both are nearing moves. No nat either so he may be closer to the door.

WYred

1.) 20 Jul 2021 16:59:18
Neither Wilson nor Williams have unpacked their suitcases yet.


2.) 20 Jul 2021 17:21:49
Wilson and Williams only arrived yesterday. Kelleher and Phillips not involved either so are both out the door?


3.) 20 Jul 2021 17:42:26
Karius playing so he's our number 1 now.


4.) 20 Jul 2021 18:40:05
I forgot that they were at the euros so came back late. Its been a long day! Either way I'd still expect wilson to be gone by season start.


5.) 20 Jul 2021 18:01:04
Waste of time even starting the season. 1-1 with weed wacker fc and losing to Stuttgart. If we don't sign Oblak, Pavard, Kante, Mbappe and Haaland among others then we'll never get top 4.


6.) 20 Jul 2021 21:07:25
The sad thing is OMM is that there are probably fans posting pretty much that on Tw@tter and won't be joking either.


7.) 20 Jul 2021 21:43:45
I think you mean ‘people’ rather than ‘fans’ Flash.


8.) 20 Jul 2021 22:05:22
100% Flash. I'd call them idiots though not fans.

So apparently Brewster is off to Shef United, I think this is a great deal for all parties personally.

The lad needs to be playing week in week out for a couple of seasons if he is to hit his potential. We get money in now to invest in players that Klopp feels can help now rather than helping in 3-4 years time.

If it works out we will likely have first refusal, the player may be willing to come back as we have allowed him to leave for his benefit. If it doesn’t we have pocketed some cash for someone that hasn’t developed as hoped at the height of his value.

It is smart business all round in my opinion and if there is a buy back figure it will likely be lower than his perceived value in a few years time. And he is working under wilder who will keep him on the straight and narrow.

I am a huge fan of his but if he stuck around is he even going to make the bench? And that just isn’t good for his development.

WYred

{Ed025's Note - your spot on WYred mate..


1.) 16 Sep 2020 11:40:37
Do we have any idea what kind of fee we may be likely to get? What was Liverpools valuation of him?

{Ed025's Note - not at the moment snoots, it will be getting thrashed out as we speak mate..


2.) 16 Sep 2020 11:49:28
Ah, well we Usualy get decent fees, I know it's random but if we could get enough together to bid for patson daka, he looks a good prospect could take game time off our front three I think.

{Ed025's Note - i think if money is available snoots then thiago will be one to be coming in mate..


3.) 16 Sep 2020 11:52:54
We would never buy him back. we need to take that myth away. Let's wish the kid has a stellar career at Sheffield or beyond. At least we aren't making any fake promises to the lad.


4.) 16 Sep 2020 12:08:33
Harry, why wouldn't we buy him back if he proved good enough and there was a position available for him? Truth is none of know what the future holds but do dismiss that we could potentially buy him back seems crazy to me.


5.) 16 Sep 2020 12:08:45
Stop leading us down the garden path ed, I am at me whits end with the thiago buisness.

{Ed025's Note - hes the one jurgen wants mate, i would have thought cover for the front 3 myself but its hard to argue with mr klopp..


6.) 16 Sep 2020 12:28:27
The Lad is good today But he is a proper center forward, something we don't play with. Brewster like Danny Ings is a very good striker. This sale has nothing to do with him needs to prove a thing.


7.) 16 Sep 2020 12:43:44
It’s kinda strange that we let a homegrown out to get Thiago where we are well stocked in midfield unless we are pushing Fab as backup for CB and Gini as CDM.

However, with Brewster going, the cards will be shifting around for movements.


8.) 16 Sep 2020 12:43:53
But harry that's how we play today, in 3-4 years we may have an entirely different system.


9.) 16 Sep 2020 12:54:45
WYred

Sheffield might sell him next summer or maybe in two years, we don't know. Not sure what the clauses are but if there are clauses then the price also decreases. We are not looking at 3-4 years for sure.


10.) 16 Sep 2020 13:30:21
Whilst I wish he stayed, fair enough. If he isn't getting game time and playing every few games for at least 45 mins and starting cup games, I don't blame him. I do think it's a weird transfer as he's HG and looked an absolute baller, played very well for Swansea. I just hope we have a buy back clause in, because if he ends up scoring double digits for SU this season, I'd love him back, we definitely need cover for the front 3, and Ox/ Shaq/ Origi haven't been doing it for me. I would have preferred selling Origi to Villa and keep Brewster, mainly for HG benefit. Oh well, hope he has a great career at SU! Wilder is a good coach and I'm sure he'll do well there.


11.) 16 Sep 2020 19:53:32
Don’t forget about our Japanese pocket rocket! I’d say we are doing well if Brewster leaves and Thiago comes in. Cover for the front three looks like Minamino - ox- Origi- Shaq. That doesn’t look too bad does it? It’s looking possible that Sarr could be added to the mix. That would make a pretty decent window for us!

{Ed025's Note - that cover for the front 3 looks very very weak to me redman, the only one who looks half decent to me would be minamino mate, the other 3 would do well to get a game for rochdale..


12.) 17 Sep 2020 04:22:51
If a deal includes any sort of a buy back that would make him a valuable future option and we get 20 or 25mil income now it can only make sense as it's a risk with very little chance of causing us regret. If you asked me would I prefer thiago in our team for next 2 or 3 years or Brewster I'd 100% say thiago. If the buy back option looks good value compared to his future progression then we could nab a potential bargain when Firmino is no longer our no.9. To receive 20+ for a player yet to play in premier league and only 6months first team involvement at championship level would be silly to turn down. He could either be a solanke or an ings. We would love to have a situation where ings could be re signed at a good price or else be satisfied that we got paid well for solanke and never seek to bring back. Sheffield Utd will know that they can't guarantee to be in a position of strenght in a few years where they could expect to demand much higher fees for him than maybe 30 or 40mil potential buy back fee. The likes of pogba and sancho going on to become so valuable when let go for so little must have frustrated United and city but negotiating with those top clubs made it unlikely they would agree to a buy back where as with sheff Utd it could work out for both parties. Ed are you aware if the likes of iheanacho or moise kean for example were let move with something similar in their contracts as big clubs letting hot prospects leave must want to consider the possibility of future success. Madrid have done this with carvajal, morata and recently hakimi all becoming twice their value over 12 months. Didn't bayern bring gnabry from Bremen at cut price? I'm not 100% sure on that one. Are there many notable big players who were used in that way?

{Ed0666's Note - What I want for Xmas is for you to start using paragraphs in you’re posts.


 

 

28 Aug 2020 06:41:15
Thank you for the update Ed002, if Mane does leave do you think Chiesa would potentially become an option or they heading elsewhere?

WYred

{Ed002's Note - Federico Chiesa (RW/F) much more affordable than Sancho for Manchester United and of prior interest, but Inter remain keen although talks are now on hold. Radja Nainggolan will be offered to Fiorentina as part of a deal for Chiesa which could ease the transfer through. But Inter feel it is taking too long and may turn elsewhere. Fiorentina are willing to sell in the summer. Should it happen at some point, he would be a direct replacement, has similar attributes to Salah, is liked by Klopp and, although Liverpool have shown no interest. Inter to push for a move for him as soon as they can. And that is the move the player has wanted. Sarri desired the player when at Napoli and he wanted to improve his options at Juventus but it would mean moving on both Douglas Costa and Bernardeshi first - although they are still trying even though Sarri has departed. Napoli remain in some turmoil and unattractive to players whilst they get their act together. Milan interest runs hot and cold, and money could be an issue. Prior interest of Napoli and Roma has gone due to the asking price.}


1.) 28 Aug 2020 08:50:08
Plays on the right and Salah has a dead left foot. We need a Left-winger.


2.) 28 Aug 2020 09:45:49
Tyrion Lannister, that left winger we need is called Robbo.


3.) 28 Aug 2020 09:53:43
The knowledge shows no bounds, cheers ed002.


4.) 28 Aug 2020 10:19:05
Chiesa is deceptively good with his weaker foot. He'd be fine either side.


5.) 28 Aug 2020 21:50:04
My god, season starts this weekend. The team is ready to go, stop planning without our front 3. They will be there for the season and future. Champions.


 

 

25 Jun 2020 22:31:55
There will be an influx of posts but enjoy it lads and lasses this has been 30 years in the making. Times maybe slightly odd but enjoy it with those loved ones around you and hopefully we can enjoy it together in liverpool soon.

At times over my time supporting liverpool I thought I'd never witness this and there has been difficult moments but to all involved and especially Jurgen, Danke and prost to the champions of 19/ 20!

Markp08, did you enter the ballot in the end? Did you have any luck? Hopefully you managed to snag at least 1 of the early games.

WYred

1.) 03 Aug 2021 19:48:49
Has the ticketing procedure changed?


2.) 03 Aug 2021 19:57:41
Yes mate it’s a ballet now for members. If you are organised it’s the way forward. It’s a much better system.


3.) 03 Aug 2021 20:43:17
It's definitely a much better system, plus with the new way to enter the ground it should stop touts.


4.) 03 Aug 2021 21:03:06
Ballet? Oh I like ballet. 🤣🤣🤣.


5.) 03 Aug 2021 21:07:41
Any spare ticket ArAy.


6.) 03 Aug 2021 21:10:12
Whats the new way to enter the ground mate? I replied a couple to times as i didn't manage the ballot, but the posts didn't get posted. Did you get tickets WY.

{Ed0666's Note - don’t you just walk through the turnstiles??


7.) 03 Aug 2021 21:33:22
All done electronically on your phone now mark08, if you use to get a ticket off a mate and used his membership card/ season ticket you'll have to create an account and get them to add you as friend/ family. They can then transfer a ticket to you. The list has to be finalised by August 11th and can't be added to after that.


8.) 03 Aug 2021 21:45:47
Grappling hooks and abseiling?


9.) 03 Aug 2021 21:51:14
They at least have given it some thought Port. But I bombed out on the ballot and now won’t have an option. But it does sound like a good idea, the prices of black market tickets were obscene.


10.) 03 Aug 2021 21:55:03
It's all on your phone now rather than the membership cards, I say it's new it may have been that way a while.

And yeah I got lucky, it sounds like they are drawing the remaining of the ballot in September so fingers crossed for you mate.


11.) 03 Aug 2021 22:05:06
Thanks for all the info lads. Made up for WY enjoy the games. I think the atmosphere should be quality.


12.) 03 Aug 2021 22:14:35
Fingers crossed, It just means i won't be annoying you lot with my positivity on the live chat for a couple of games 😂.


13.) 03 Aug 2021 22:24:56
Take the positivity to the ground mate.


14.) 03 Aug 2021 22:43:29
Awesome gents. I can’t get tickets myself but great to see some of the good guys on here get them.


15.) 03 Aug 2021 22:45:45
Hi WY, I had a nightmare mate. After chatting with yourself it was on my mind but I got really busy at work. As usual at the last minute I realised I had till 8am the next morning to enter.

So managed to dig out the 2 user names but couldn’t remember the passwords so I reset them and I only got a reply for my account not my sons. So I logged on and like we discussed I chose all the games available but it wouldn’t let me link my sons account so I just gave up mate.

One match would have very much done us. But I am definitely going to sort it out before the next ballot. I really hope you got some tickets.


 

 

04 Jul 2021 20:11:18
There has been a bit of talk on here regarding England and if people support them or not. Everyone's entitled to their opinion and I know there are some that won't support England because of the government and the impact it had on Liverpool in the 80s. Or the stereotype of us all being beer swilling racists who support the BNP that they don't want to associate with.

But for me supporting England is about standing with other english fans for 90 mins all wanting the same outcome. We live in a world that has many things that like to divide us, politics, race, religion, genders and sexuality as examples. And there is something quite brilliant to see the majority in the country on the same page. Even if it is just temporary.

Plus the fact we have all been through the ringer this year, having something that can bring the nation together whether your a londoner, scouse, geordie or wherever you are in the country can only be a bonus.

So let's get behind the lads, even those that dare play for other teams! And maybe, just maybe we can all celebrate England winning a major tournament and football finally coming home.

WYred

1.) 04 Jul 2021 20:29:11
I’ve been thinking along similar lines WYred.
A significant part of England’s squad are black or mixed race.
The fans are much more inclusive of contemporary England too than in the bad old days of violence and xenophobia.
And how can you not like young players like Bellingham or Mount or Foden?
I like Sancho as well, I’d happily pay money to go and watch them whosever shirt they were dressed in.
I think it would a hugely positive thing for the country if England were to win the competition.


2.) 04 Jul 2021 20:53:19
Stopped watching England play after that 1-1 draw with the US at the 2010 World Cup as was sick of the abject failure that I'd seen for many many years even though we had a decent batch of players. I guess a lot of football fans may feel the same. I don't miss watching them at all. I'm happy to say I haven't seen a single game from this tournament as yet.

{Ed025's Note - then you have missed out johnny, there have been some very good games mate and for me its been a good tournament, to not watch a team over a game that happened over 20 years ago seems a little bit pathetic if you dont mind me saying so..


3.) 04 Jul 2021 21:32:44
I have enjoyed some of the games as well. The back to back 3-3's were quality entertainment.


4.) 04 Jul 2021 22:48:44
Is there a stereotype around racist Liverpool fans? Must have missed that. I've been away to a few London games, Newcastle, Villa, a couple more, and sadly it shows its head a bit. I was in the ground the day John Barnes made his debut and sadly there were a few monkey chants. DIdn't last long though.
I also was proud of the footage of fascist demonstrators being police escorted out of the city centre after the people of Liverpool wouldn't put up with that crap.
I've had my say on my apathy toward the national team, but can we wrap this up now?

{Ed0666's Note - why wrap it up burky? It’s a relevant, topical debate that surely needs to happen especially now. I was born in England of immigrant parents and I’ve suffered occasional abuse at the hands of racists both in football grounds. But then again everyone’s a hardman when you’re in a 50+ mob. For me the ‘England supporting beer swilling skinheads’ with the St. George’s Cross flag and the Union Jack wrapped around them are synonymous of this abuse and I don’t have any problems saying I’m ambivalent towards England’s results in soccer and rugby tournaments. Conversely I want England to win in all other sports as you typically don’t get adolf hitler idolizing knuckledraggers as fans in those sports. The case in point is Raheem Sterling and the abuse he takes for being black and English. He’s said it leaves a bad taste in his mouth knowing that some of the pricks that cheer him are racially abusing him aswell.


5.) 04 Jul 2021 22:53:09
I'm really enjoying the tournament myself lad's. Would be a 1000 times better with the Irish in it but I don't think that's going to happen for a good while.

{Ed0666's Note - there’s more chance of mother Theresa refereeing the World Cup final than the Irish qualifying for a tournament bazza 😂


6.) 04 Jul 2021 22:54:51
I don't care what colour/ creed the players are, I am English, I will support England when we play and whatever club the players play for during a season is irrelevent. I jumped up just as much for Maguires goal as I did Hendersons. Put them in club shirts and its a whole new ball game, but this is beyond local/ team rivalry, it is about us showing why our country produces the best players, be they LFC, Leeds, Spurs whatever. Come day 1 of Prem season that goes out the window, but let's just enjoy the fact for the first time in 55 years our nation has a chance of winning something.


7.) 04 Jul 2021 23:27:30
I also remember the abuse that John Barnes used to get from England “supporters” in the 80’s and 90’s, imagine throwing bananas, booing and making monkey calls against someone playing for your team. Those sort of idiots still make up sizeable amount who watch England, I’ve no desire to stand shoulder to shoulder with those racist ****s.

{Ed0666's Note - what he said


8.) 04 Jul 2021 23:32:49
I'm close to not reading this page anymore because of tripe being said by jonny (jenny) and others about England. Get a grip and if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything and get a life!

{Ed0666's Note - it’s people prerogatives to post what they like if it’s within boundaries and it’s you’re prerogative to step away.


9.) 05 Jul 2021 00:09:56
Cheers Ed0666 kick us while we're down why don't you.

{Ed0666's Note - Down?? What’s the one after down? 😂


10.) 05 Jul 2021 05:49:34
Ed0666, my query was around the Liverpool stereotype of racist supporters. I've now reread the post and can see the poster is talking about the supporters of the national team as being drunk racists. I can't disagree with that. I think they're often a bunch of drunk idiotic racists. But of course, as I don't attend England games I'm only seeing what makes the newsreel, I'm sure plenty are just fine.
My point about moving on is that we seem to have covered this topic a lot lately and I don't know what more there is to be said.

{Ed0666's Note - mate we seem to cover a lot of subjects repeatedly that’s just what we do on this site 😂


11.) 05 Jul 2021 05:59:51
Speaking of repeatedly covering the same subject, I’m still waiting for a review of the Liverpool v Southampton game.


12.) 05 Jul 2021 06:05:54
I have to admit that I’ve not been to a live England game for many a year.
In fact, one of the last ones was at Anfield and the atmosphere was really good, apart from having that bloody band sat a couple of rows behind me playing the same old tunes.
I also remember going to Sunderland to watch a Euro qualifier against Turkey, just after the Leeds fans had been stabbed in Istanbul a few years ago.
The atmosphere was terrible, and the ground seemed to 70% full of Burberry-wearing hooligans.
I was basing my above comments on today’s England fans just off watching the television, but perhaps the cameras make a point about picking out black and Asian supporters in the crowd?
It seems better than it was but I accept that we’re starting from a very low baseline to say the least.


13.) 05 Jul 2021 06:23:00
I will never understand abuse because strip us all back and we are all just a bag of bones.

But each fan base has its fair share of idiots, we've had ones that none of us would associate with (man city's bus as an example) and in no way should supporting England automatically put you in the bracket of being a racist knucklehead.

The ironic thing is they will all lose their minds when sterling scores but he does something wrong and out pops the abuse!


14.) 04 Jul 2021 21:15:23
Agreed Ed025. By the end of the season I'd fallen out of love with football, the lack of fans, VAR (in tandem with the standard of refereeing) and obviously some of the results for our boys just really turned football in to more of a chore. The Euros though has been ace, lot's of entertaining games, high standard of refereeing and good use of VAR at least in the games I've watched. Really reignited my passion for football again and now looking forward to the PL season kicking off again.

{Ed025's Note - yeah dan same for me mate..


15.) 04 Jul 2021 21:30:15
Agreed 25, whether you support England or not, you can't deny there has been some cracking football games recently, and some crap pens too!

{Ed025's Note - plus being able to go the pub to watch it has helped stuie, i think its been great mate..


16.) 04 Jul 2021 23:09:51
ED025 I feel a similar way to Johnny but it's not about holding them to account or anything, it's just a simple falling out of interest with the format. Personally I feel like they are all friendlies to an extent - you catch a good one occasionally but most just feel like watching Burnley vs Stoke to me, can't feel anticipation for them or passionate about the result. But each to their own and good luck to anyone finding their joy.

{Ed025's Note - i certainly feel that way about friendlies and most qualifying games hjikle, but this tournament has been good imo mate..


17.) 05 Jul 2021 06:47:01
I wasn't going to watch this tournament, as the last few international tournaments have been rather boring, even the last World Cup when England got to the semi finals, it was still boring.

This one is certainly quite entertaining and I believe I've watched every single game, or at least had it on in the background while doing other things.

{Ed025's Note - there have been some very entertaining games hsf, and the day of the two 3-3 draws was brilliant entertainment mate..


18.) 05 Jul 2021 09:42:52
Id be more than happy for England to win the tournament. Especially if Hendo scores the winning goal. And Kane misses a penalty. And Sterling falls over again. And Pickford gets cleaned up.


19.) 05 Jul 2021 10:11:32
Surely the answer to the problem of a vocal minority of England fans being knuckledraggers is not to walk away from football complaining about them, but to support the country and the players in spite of them. I’ve not been to the pub once, but I’ve not heard a single instance of racism so far. Are these not just bad excuses for not supporting your country, the vast, vast majority of which is not racist, bigoted etc?

People make a stand because they’re tired of disappointment and when things aren’t actually going badly, any reason for not looking like a fool for boohooing will do. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.


20.) 05 Jul 2021 09:43:10
Thanks Ed025 for the pathetic label. I used to attend quite a few England games as it happens but I don't see anything 'pathetic' about simply becoming disillusioned with the constant cycle of hype and then disappointment around our international team. Since stopping watching I've simply lost interest completely in international football and don't plan to start again just because we've had a couple of good games recently.

{Ed025's Note - sorry johnny but all im trying to say is that things change over time, we had a girl at our school when i was younger and shall we say was less than pretty, i met her at a school reunion years later and she was an absolute stunner, things can develop mate thats all im saying and maybe just maybe you might just enjoy watching the national team again my friend..


21.) 05 Jul 2021 13:06:53
Love it Thunderbird. That made me chuckle.


 

 

18 Jun 2021 22:04:00
And that's why I'd have Henderson as captain over kane and if Southgate gets himself a job for a top half team I'd be amazed.

WYred

1.) 18 Jun 2021 22:27:16
Fingers crossed he ends up at United, Everton or City!


2.) 18 Jun 2021 22:29:13
Would rather Hendo keep fit for next season.


3.) 18 Jun 2021 22:47:52
Appalling. But then look at the players on the pitch and the manager. Kane is shocking and Sterling no better. Grealish falls down every time he’s slightly touched. But he played a fantastic ball to the subs! Worst England team in my lifetime. got to blame the premier league for lack of a decent pool of England players and managers. 4 points and through though - we’ll probably win it.


4.) 18 Jun 2021 23:31:47
Hendo should be Captain alrite but on the England side they are what they are. Always stroll through groups because the teams do be brutal but are still a way behind france, Belgium, Germany, Italy et all.


5.) 18 Jun 2021 23:45:25
Nope ENG have better players then France and Belgium put together. It's all fault of Southgate 😜.


6.) 19 Jun 2021 00:13:31
Southgate needs to start playing the best players, not just his favourites!


7.) 19 Jun 2021 01:17:19
They're all rubbish. its the players on the pitch tonight, but its the manager that was willing to take 4 rightbacks to escape the backlash of not taking the commonly regarded best rightback in the country to the tournament. Im actually happy Trent misses the tournament because that clown wouldn't have played him and i think that wouldve effected Trent even more. ImIrish so i couldn't give aToss about England, Trent and all the other Pool players are all i care about.

{Ed0666's Note - I respect you’re thoughts. When an British Asian echoes the same thoughts about supporting india or Pakistan over England they are considered a deserter or biting the hand that’s feeds them. It’s funny how Norman Tebbitt didn’t reference the Irish when he made that comment about cricketing loyalties.

I’m convinced that, aside from at CB, England genuinely do have as good a squad of players as any nation other than France, who have a remarkable squad. But the FA and the decisions they make absolutely stink most of the time, hence why England will get nowhere near the trophy.

{Ed0666's Note - England are one great coach away from real success. Imagine what klopp or Pep would do with that squad. You’re right tho mate it’s an outrageously talented squad.


9.) 19 Jun 2021 02:47:18
To be fair there is no league so pep would blow everything up in finals by playing Pickford as a striker possibly.


10.) 19 Jun 2021 04:16:08
I agree with your point a great coach and success, but do you think Klopp or Pep would be the ones to bring it? I feel like those two coach to such a high standard they need the players at it every single day. I think even someone a good few levels below those two could achieve great things with this England team.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not joking they’d be better off giving the job to Chris wilder he’d get more out of them than Gareth has or ever will


11.) 19 Jun 2021 06:53:55
I stopped eat CJ I got halfway through the second half. England’s problem is the same now as it has been for years. We don’t have the technical ability or technical intelligence throughout the squad to play the way the European teams do. Italy are currently playing the way we are trying to and it doesn’t work because the English game isn’t like that. We are all about pace, power, driving at the opposition goal and whenever we get to a tournament we try to tiki taka it about. The talent is there in that England squad but until we start playing to our strengths they will always be disjointed and struggle for positive results.


12.) 19 Jun 2021 07:17:15
The problem for England is always the same, we don't choose a system and put the players in to make it work. We just pick a formation and throw players in and hope it works.

Kane speaks well but isn't a captain imo, Robbo showed what leadership on the pitch is he was everywhere.

He also wants to come short alot, but if no one takes the space he has left we are just left with an extra midfielder and no one to cross the ball to or to pass it forward.

Sterling hasn't played well for months but still gets in.

Chilwell doesn't get a look in at LB but has got to be our best LB. I'd play saka over Shaw!

The squad is also lacking a Tony Adams esque, belting out of the national anthem. Its all to nicey nice with very little heart.

But huge credit to the Scots last night as they should of won it and made their fans proud. Whereas I'm sat here wondering how this lot made it to a semi finals of a major tournament!


13.) 19 Jun 2021 07:56:11
Kane speaks well? Have you ever heard him speak Wyred 👀.


14.) 19 Jun 2021 10:40:54
Understand Southgate is very poor, but saying the England squad is poor, come on! They have a squad stacked with quality it’s just the players aren’t being used right by a clueless manager who was given the job on good manners and the easiest World Cup run ever. Only thing they can hope is they get knocked out early and get a new manager before the World Cup, or the ‘golden generation’ will be wasted once more.


15.) 19 Jun 2021 10:59:14
I d love to watch just one game, just one, where England are let off the leash. The cerebral, patient approach to International football has been going on for decades. It’s dull, it’s monotonous and it’s hiding behind the conservative idea that every international team must be shown respect on the field. Put a Bielsa or a young Klopp in charge of this talented English squad and they would blow most other teams out the water. Why do international games rarely entertain and rarely get past 3 goals? Why is aggressive, attacking football hardly ever seen versus countries? In my opinion it’s 90 minutes of risk management and timidity and managers like Southgate are brought in because they are able to bring those ‘qualities’ in their tactics.


16.) 19 Jun 2021 12:52:10
I disagree that the England squad is poor. It is not. It is the whole setup from top to bottom that is a shambles. England are not interested in actually winning major comp., IMO. Why? They literally act like they don’t care by boring the wrong manager and continue to reward mediocrity and failure.

Then, it seems the media have their fav players who they want to be picked regardless of form and then, the propaganda begins. Then, manager has to start shoe-horning player he may not want cos he is scared if he drops them and he loses. And we know the rest. Until this changes and the mentality changes, England will continue to fail. The End.


17.) 19 Jun 2021 06:15:43
Are they that good tho Ed? There’s no denying there are some quality players but I think the media hypes them way beyond their abilities. Maguire, Trippier, Stones, Mings, Shaw and Pickford are not outrageously talented in my opinion. Big fan of James though.

Every broadcaster seems to be literally obsessed with finding the next Gazza even going so far as having them recreate his goal against Scotland! Foden and Mount are very good, but Grealish is like the kid in school who thought he was better than everyone else and wouldn’t pass. Phillips and Rice are decent but are they any better than what other nations have?

Up top Kane is world class but seriously out of form after his injury and the likes of Calvert Lewin are nowhere near good enough to step up. Not really sure what Sterling offers very overrated player. So a few really good players and a few very promising but nowhere what the media would have us believe. In my humble opinion anyway.

{Ed0666's Note - yes mate I think they have some excellent players. Saka, Bellingham, Kane, Henderson, chillwell, mount, sancho, white. They have the nucleus of a really good team only if they had a manager who had footballing nous. I still for the life of me don’t know why he doesn’t play saka? Imagine Allegri with this squad?


18.) 19 Jun 2021 16:38:04
There a few excellent players and a few with excellent potential there no doubt. But some are severely out of form or not match fit and some- for me anyway- are just overrated. The rest of the squad are average. 100% agree that another manager would be a huge upgrade but I simply don’t think the squad are as good as the media and pundits say.


19.) 19 Jun 2021 16:40:09
WYred Kane speaks well, ha ha, sorry couldn't resist, ask Harvey Elliot.

Many of us detest VAR but maybe it's VAR that has suffered the most without fans.

That moment in the final without fans would probably have annoyed us all but with the fans it provided the best reaction.

Incredible moment and well done to Leicester and Rodgers, his team showed tremendous character 😉.

But the final has shown us how much the game needs fans and I can't wait until stadiums are full again, they are crucial to the game.

WYred

1.) 15 May 2021 20:03:16
Yes, well done Leicester. Really happy for them and their owners. Brendan really did brighten up the occasion with his pearly white teeth. That VAR moment? Priceless. for Leicester fans at least.


2.) 15 May 2021 20:24:49
It just had to be VAR didn’t it?
I’m happy for Leicester and Rodgers but what a sickener to lose a cup final like that.
A millimetre or two is ridiculous, the rule of giving the benefit of the doubt to the attacking side was fine by me.
It’s getting to the point where you can’t celebrate a goal properly anymore, horrible.
Having said that, Tuchel is just overly negative. He’s got some fantastic attacking talent at his disposal and always goes safety first.


3.) 15 May 2021 20:48:21
They actually showed “great character”.


4.) 15 May 2021 22:21:54
The decision was right. There is always going to be one team at the receiving end of any decision.
If no VAR that goal would have stood and stood unfairly. I think VAR works well for offsides even by a hair, offside is offside. Its that the implementation is not good but the decisions are right. I just wish it could be more real time.


5.) 15 May 2021 23:20:52
Well done Leicester but my god I hate var.


6.) 15 May 2021 23:44:38
I can't disagree with you enough Akira. Its a joke some of the offside decisions. Football was never meant to be an exact science.


7.) 16 May 2021 00:06:50
Akira when you are talking about millimetres then it all depends on when the frame is frozen. How do we know that the frame was frozen at the EXACT point the ball left the passers foot? When we are talking millimetres a fraction of a second too late can mean it looks offside when it actually isn’t or vice versa.
This is the problem I have with the lines, you can’t treat it like an exact science with lines and grids because you can’t guarantee the accuracy of the person working the equipment. If it needs lines to see it then it’s onside or at the very least it’s linesman’s call.
VAR was supposed to stop the blatantly wrong calls but it’s gone far too microscopic and it’s to the detriment of the game in my opinion.


8.) 16 May 2021 00:30:23
Problem is that offside is not offside. Its often not that clear cut and end up be subjective hair-splitting. When it becomes that subjective, its no different to having a ref on the pitch making the decision. VAR out.


9.) 16 May 2021 05:47:11
No i would still persist with VAR. The lines and grid are def an awkward way to get the answer. But the science isn't wrong. The problem is implementation. It kills the game. In football those decisions have to be near real time. If the on pitch referee gives it real time VAR should be near real time too.
I would agree that onfield decision should be considered in microscopic offsides just like its umpires call in cricket.

{Ed0666's Note - Like it or love it VAR is here to stay. It would be a massive embarrassment to FIFA if they disbanded it and would be an admission that they made a mistake not too mention the time and cost. Get used to those lines being drawn and it taking 20 minutes for the wallies in stockley park making a pigs ear if the most obvious decisions.


10.) 16 May 2021 06:47:40
change offside decisions to only the feet. at least that will minimize the variables.


11.) 16 May 2021 09:29:34
Says it all when we are still seeing red cards rescinded after the event. With VAR in place there should be no instances where a red card is wrongly given. Not one.
We consistently see that refs just don’t understand the game and VAR has only served to highlight that even more.


12.) 16 May 2021 09:30:30
The problem with offside decisions are that if they are close, they are close. Change the rules to just the feet and you'll still get ridiculously close decisions. Change the rules to include a margin of error and there will still be decisions based around mms.

VAR stops fans and players from feeling the rush of adrenaline that scoring a goal gave us. If a goal goes in we get that initial buzz but it's replaced instantly with the anxiety that the goal will be disallowed and if it's allowed we are relieved. It's ruined the game.

2.) 06 May 2021 22:44:17
Based on his previous Europa League final appearance, they better sub him at half time.


3.) 07 May 2021 07:16:39
I still have nightmares about that second half performance as it was my first ever time at a European final.


4.) 07 May 2021 10:15:00
Amazing that according to BBC Sport he was also MoM!

I'd agree that I wouldn't automatically give him 5 years. This year has shown injuries etc. But I'd increase it by an additional year and look at paving the way into his latter years and eventually retirement. Milly is here until he is 36 and hendo seems to have the same mindset in terms of fitness and determination. I'm sure a compromise will be found.

A mountain out of a mole hill, this is a man who fought too and nail to prove Brendan wrong. A man who fought to be captain. A man who led us to number 6 and number 19. And that's before all is charity work. As long as we as fans and the club shows we want him the lad will stay.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Henderson will be harder to replace then Gerrard for the role he has with his team mates and the club.

I truly believe he could take his first steps into coaching with us but there is little rush with two years left to tie him down. The journos are whipping up a frenzy by repeating what one said to not miss out on the 'story'.

WYred

{Ed0666's Note - im gonna get a load of hate for this but I don’t think hendo should get a 5 year contract. We can’t have a plethora of thirty somethings on big contracts with no re-sale value. It’s just not good for business. I love hendo like he was my son but good business decisions aren’t based on sentiment. He’s missing swathes of games through injury which isn’t gonna get better over the coming months and years. If he accepted a 2 year contract that would be a happy medium in my opinion. Ok I’m ready for the vitriol peeps bring it on.

He needs the move for his career, the lad is entrenched in our history and whilst not a legend he has had his fair share of iconic moments. The lad won't be forgotten in a hurry and has given us some wonderful memories.

But the big question is, who becomes my new avatar?

Net spend means naff all, Arsenal and Everton have had a higher net spend but have they won anything?

I bet our wage bill far outstrips those two as well.

The club needs to be sustainable and we don't have resources to drop £100m on someone.

The club have done incredibly well to compete and I trust them to know what they need.

Plus the teams that are spending big amounts, none of those players are guaranteed to be a big success so let's see how the window ends before we lose our minds.

Unless home grown we need to shift at least 1 more to create space, no panic, I'm sure the club will get what they feel they need.
