  1. He was always massively talented and in his last 12 months he started to become that star player (think he got about 20 goals and loads of 10+assists), but he left Liverpool just as he was making that step up and never regained that form. He was never worth £140m though and Barca doubled their bid in less than 6 months without having any need for him, seemed like they wanted to prove they could get whoever they wanted.
  2. He's been fine for them whenever I've watched him, but he's never had a chance to play in his best role. He seems like the prime example of what's wrong with their recruitment and board. They spent way too much on a player without actually know how he fits into the team, and now their ongoing costs means they've got an unhappy player taking up huge wages while not contributing. Also heard lots that Barca and Liverpool have the two best analytics groups in the world, except Barca completely don't include them at all while Liverpool's have helped with some incredible recruitment. Not that i
  3. Why does he deserve until the end of the season? He was always unqualified for the job, and this team could be much better than it is.
  4. I'd definitely say CB and GK are England's weakest positions. Shaw seems to do better when sitting deep when sitting deep, Chilwell better when trying to break teams down. They're both decent and would rotate well in a squad, but personally I'd go with James Justin on form for this season.
  5. I think its brilliant so far, but hadn't heard of it so had no expectations. Plus it was only £1!
  6. He's absolutely brilliant and has been central all Liverpool's success over the last few years. He's played lots but rarely get's a chance to really shine, so might want to go somewhere where he can be the star. At 30 it's a tricky contract age, probably his last big one but Liverpool sound reluctant to hand a big, long contract to someone who's legs might go soon. Plus he's still on the wages he arrived on, not unfair that he probably feels he's worth a lot more than he currently gets. I get that they have to be careful with wage structures but he would be a massive loss if he goes
  7. I think Rodgers could do a great job there and definitely has the ego to think he can be the man to save the club, definitely a step up from Ole. I also don't know if his ties to Liverpool would be an issue for him. Personally though I think Rodgers has a very mixed record on recruitment, Leicester seem to have a great model but United's is obviously a shambles. Plus I see Leicester being closer to a title than United.
  8. I don't mind it but the size and the fact it only comes in white means it's gonna stand out like hell. Zero option for subtlety.
  9. Only paying £4m this year. It definitely shows how limited upfront cash is right now for all teams imo.
  10. Thiago to Liverpool is actually happening then! Been telling myself all summer it's unlikely but now I'm like a kid at Christmas, feel like he's one of the few players who could take this Liverpool team to an even higher level.
  11. Liverpool looked really sloppy but that's to be expected with such a short pre-season. Definitely need to sharpen up fast though. Leeds look a real good team, think they'll be great fun to watch this season.
  12. I think I need that 3D collection. Sunshine was an absolute favourite of mine as kid but never got round to playing Galaxy. Bit weird how it's only going to be on sale until March though.
  13. Its not as bad as the Wii U but it does have the same kinda vibe. They've got enough titles to tempt current xbox fans but I really struggle why any neutral would prefer it the the PS5 at launch.
  14. Gonna be an interesting match. Real have been pretty average but their post lockdown matches have all been important and they seem to be masters of just getting the job done. City look the superior team but not really played many properly competitive matches other than the loss in the FA Cup.
  15. I dont feel sorry for Bale, still not forgiven him for his goals in Kiev, but I dont think he's been unreasonable with his behaviour. Real Madrid are brutal to players, and its sort of just accepted. Zidane has never had any interest in playing him, and Real wouldnt let him go to China. If the club has no interest in looking after his interests then it only makes sense that he'll just do what's best for him.
