  1. They are not 2 of the brightest young prospects about Steve, that’s the whole point. Offload Schneiderlin, Bolasie, Niasse, Tosun and a couple of others pay the money for Gomez and buy a top class striker otherwise we stay with the also rans- No doubt about it.
  2. Id go back to the same team that went toe to toe with Liverpool. Watford are tough nuts this season. If we arent on our game they will beat us.
  3. Haha ok, you can’t put it into words, and when you do and it’s refuted it’s the old you get it or don’t.
  4. Love what he said about Pickford for me when your team mates talk about you like that it just proves he isn’t cocky fucker some here were hinting at over his mistake against Liverpool.
  5. Its not about being hit. Its the battles and he loses them against full backs and wingers when he has far more space. In the middle he has less space against stronger and more combative players. He will have an advantage in that they are likely to be less agile but as soon as they lean on him he will struggle. The other reason I have a doubt about him playing Siggys role is because Siggy plays very advanced. Siggy gets into loads of battles with CBs, like Richie does too, and if thats how Silva wants to play then I dont see how it will work with Bernard. Lots of people are suggesting Richie doesnt have the strength to do that and if he doesnt then Bernard has no chance! There are plenty of players in the league that prove that talent and attitude can over come size or pace limitations. Bernard is very weak, well below that of similar small lads, but he is less than 6 months in so I would expect him to adapt over time.
  6. No, No and No, he's a lazy self centred egotistical non team player, the exact opposite of what M+M are working to achieve. BTW did I say NO?

  8. The manager and having backroom staff in the likes of Dunc along with the first team players we have who have plenty of experience in this league will more than cover what desires and ethos we want and need Baines has already stated he doesn't have a passion for the game albeit he will for the club but apparently doesn't want to hang around, Jags is surplus but I would like to see him move into the coaching in some respect Coleman has another year in him imo before he becomes completely surplus There's very little point handing players multimillion pound contracts just for off the park experience, I can't think of many successful sides that tend to do it with said players never playing that's coaching not being a player
  9. Slowly but surly im getting the same feeling before I click on this thread that I had with the Lukaku thread before it was moved to the depths of toffeetalk.
  10. That post says to me you don’t get it at all. Old guard is a phrase for long term servants, not necessarily on the field. Gylfi hasn’t been anywhere near long enough, though I don’t doubt his professionalism. Jags, Baines and Coleman are the last of the loyal players, and that’s why they’re valuable
  11. For me he’s just not mobile enough. Technically he’s pretty decent
  12. Exactly, Fergie was so ruthless when it came to players. Beckham and Stan just two that come to mind. On the other hand his players like Giggs, Rio and Scholes, they set the example to everyone. Rooney, after he left United he said the standards around the club dropped when these players left. Not necessarily on the pitch, but the likes of people turning up on time, working harder in training, even things like fastening the top button on their shirts on the team bus. He said him and Carrick tried to keep it up but wasn’t the same influence as when there was more of them. These players are vital to a club, even more so a club like ours who has been built on tradition.
  13. Because the season is only a third old? Are you ignoring that Kanté has 2 titles to his name in 4 years in the Premier League?! Riddle me this... if the ball is lost in midfield, and no team is infallible, how do teams win? There is a logic in the best teams don’t lose the ball, but it’s a false logic. The real proof is how quickly the ball is won back so they can attack again. Gana does that for us, just like Kante does for Chelsea. Just like Kante doesn’t score the goals for the points, but rather gets the ball back so others can. Our problem is putting the ball in the net, not winning the ball back. What is it with this forum expecting specialists in their field to be something they’re not?!
  14. I wasn't making one, you just asked "have you ever wondered why" there were no players from decent teams making a lot of tackles and so I just pointed out in two posts that that question was based on an inaccurate assumption. So then you move the goalposts and talk about his ability with the ball. No he's never going to beat seven men and score a worldie but he might just make a challenge and give it to someone who can.
  15. Rupert's Tower was bigger than I thought it was going to be. First time I'd actually seen it strangely.
  16. Yes his delivery wasn’t the consistent quality we have been use to this season. But I think you are all forgetting, he should have had 2 assists against Newcastle. He found Gylfi in the box who had the goalkeeper to beat after a neat touch, but chose the wrong side of the goal and his shot was blocked by a defender. He also belted a ball which found Cenk’s boot half a meter from the goal line, and it was saved. not his best day, but his teammates let him down more than his left boot.
  17. Tough to say which one was yesterday, only Gomes and Pickford justified their place in the starting eleven.
  18. Who cares? Klopp celebrated an unexpected win like a child.... just the same as every person to a T on here would. I’m not bothered, this is why I love football, passion and heart on sleeve moments.
  19. Henry's on his way, DC-L will continue to improve, and Cenk will regain form. Personally, I'd not be in any rush to buy a striker.
  20. Sigurdsson has 7 more tackles and 12 more interceptions than firminho this season 🙂 In fact he has more interceptions out of any other forward (ST, RW, LW, CAM) and is only behind Hughes for tackles completed. (Whoscored) He's a great presser.

  22. We're not going to agree on this so no point in dragging it out, having said that do you not give him any credit for the instant apology and the acceptance of the FA charge (even before it was made)? I don't believe I'm sticking up for a Liverpool manager but why in the World would he need to seek attention? Hate myself for it but I respect the man still. (Having said "no point dragging it out" I just have)
  23. I actually hope to see Silva celebrating like that one day, especially after what will now be a 20-year gap since our last win at Anfield.
  24. If you get your facts from memes, that would explain an awful lot
  25. I have to agree. If we scored a last minute winner and Silva ran onto the pitch I absolutely would not care.
  26. Got to say I think his pressing is one of the strongest parts of his game. He's not the quickest but he implieents his press well.
  27. I have usually restrained myself from coming in here, but some of the statement's and observations in this thread are ridiculous. More tackles, more interceptions, and covers more miles than anyone else on the pitch, some of our members need to pull their head out from their arses so they are able to see more clearly.
  28. Exactly, double standards on here, if it was Marco we would be pissing ourselves laughing. I couldn't give a fuck what Klopp did, just gutted he wasn't double footed whilst on the pitch by one of our lads.
  29. It's every game I'm afraid, and there's no one player the main culprit, needs to be worked on, eliminate it and we will,be far more threatening.
  30. Think of the positive, the United transfer rumors will now die
  31. He did but also showed his immaturity a few times too. He worries me when things get tense.
  32. I know it’s the Everton way to find a whipping boy but FFS give the lad a chance. As Pad says he was out for a long time and he is just bedding in, give him time I think he gives us balance and he is contributing already. Brilliant dribble to the byline and cross for Richarlisons goal at Leicester . Good run off the ball to take the defender away then good one two with Sigurdsson for Richarlison goal at home to Brighton prove he can beat his man and that he doesn’t just play it back
  33. He's a mardy tit. Spontaneous my arse.... he actually stopped before thinking "fuck it". Loves the attention. If another manager did that he would be fucking livid. That lot make their own rules. They were crying all sorts of shit when mourinho did it along the touchline.. yet their manager runs on the actual pitch and he's all fooking great and it's passion. Their fans got all pious about one of our fans punching a player when their fans actually destroyed a teams coach with players on board. Rightly so our fan was dealt with.... that lot? Nothing happened. If we held on for 0-0 his interview would have been pure whinging and sarcasm. Never used to mind Klopp but he's turned into a prick. After his pitch invasion our fans apparently threw things on the pitch which we are being investigated for. He's accountable for much of that shit.
  34. My point is their are better out there at it, Sigurdssen doesn't have the fast twitch muscles to excel at it. Have to agree to disagree on that unless you can find the stop watch stats. For me Sigurdssen is very flat track, one paced whereas players like Firminio have a burst to close the gap quicker.
  35. Thought these comments were on about Gylfi when I first read them.
  36. Balotelli is on a free. Worth a one year deal. He's class when he's arsed, playing in France might have helped humble him.
  37. It does reemerge every now and then with me doing some top notch piss taking. If I could I would change the lukaku thread to "haf told you so..."
