  1. Non-Chelsea Transfer Pub

    People more than likely probably would have said the same about Andy Robertson when he first signed considering he came from a side that got relegated. Jamal Lewis does look in the sort of mould of fullback that Klopp likes and honestly I really dont think he’s any lesser a player that Reece James is imo so for a back up he’s ideal, plus hes young and still has huge room for improvement. Yes refresh but he doesn’t need to overhaul the team hugely. You look at Alisson who is 27, Trent is 21, Joe Gomez is 23, Robertson is 26, Fabinho is 26. Still plenty of life in those guys and they will undoubtedly form the spine of their team. Also even van Dijk at 29, the very very good CBs tend to last to their early 30s. Okay they need may to refresh the XI a bit in midfield but I really cannot see Salah and Mane slowing down for another 2 seasons minimum due to how often they’re injured and how well they clearly look after themselves. Firmino again, is he hugely reliant on his physical attributes as a footballer? No not really so again maybe another 2 seasons at least maybe more. Yea they’ll need replaced eventually but this when someones approaching 30 and will automatically decline is ridiculously naive because you have to look at how often these guys have been injured over the years, how they prepare and look after themselves, what their playing styles are, how their teams play and everything else. Going by the 30 plus logic Lewandowski would of slowed down years ago, Robben and Ribery wouldnt have ever managed to play regularly under Pep. Ronaldo has probably gotten better after turning 30 and so has Ibrahimovich. Its got to be done case by case. Mane and Salah are both world class footballers as well and arguably so is Firmino so you wouldnt be half surprised if they kept going at a good level to 32 or 33. Their issues are that Keita hasn't ever done well enough on a consistent basis and neither has Oxlade-Chamberlain. Origi isnt the best player to start games but has he not scored some of the biggest goals in their CL win? Minamino probably needs more chances. Even then if Klopp wants to retain the title and focus more on the short term and go for that, the CL, the cups next season, he doesnt have to go and spend the 250mn on players who are early 20s and will grow into longterm replacements for those players approaching 30. Maybe Thiago arrives for 30mn, maybe another CB, maybe a LB and maybe another forward player. They dont have to all be amazing amazing squad players. Good and dependable yes but don’t t have to be world class/top players. I mean look at City, how many top players for each position? Is it necessarily useful? Perhaps in some positions (forward areas) but everytime they’ve won something they've primarily used the same 15 or 16 players regularly throughout.

    Thats true and it is hard to see teams retaining titles unless they invest heavily but they realistically cannot improve their first 11 bar in MF with someone a bit more creative imo. Its just depth they need maybe, more at LB, CF and wide perhaps but finding good squad players who are willing to be squad players is difficult.
  3. The English Football Thread

    I think Fulham will not last long again. 1 season and back down. Leeds have got a bit more about them. They'll need some better players but if Bielsa gets them, with his innovation and ability to improve players, I think they could remain in the PL for a bit. hopefully not but out the two I think Leeds are better equipped for a longer stint in the PL.
  4. Non-Chelsea Transfer Pub

    They dont need much in all fairness. If they can keep the majority of the big hitters fit and playing in 90% of the games they still will be top 2 easily. They lack a top creative midfield player and a couple squad players maybe but what about if Klopp plays youngsters instead to replace the likes of Lovren and Lallana? They've sold Lovren but the likes of van der Berg and Hoever can both play at CB and are both highly rated u18 Dutch internationals and Lallana again I mean his contribution last season was near non existent so a youngster can surely use up those minutes 100%. I mean weve all just spent a season lauding our manager for dumping David Luiz out the squad for Tomori, Luiz is a better CB than Lovren. Maybe they should of pushed for Werner more, I thought he would of been their top target, as they need a better CF/wide forward to back/rotate/compete with those guys maybe. Have no doubts he’d of played regularly there unlike what the likes of that crackhead Robbie Fowler and John Barnes came out saying after we got him. If they get Thiago in midfield, who would fit in at any club in the PL and improve them as well as a good back up CF/winger, they are still gonna be right up there. I still fancy City to do it this year but I dont think anybody will break that City and Liverpool top 2 next season but the gap will hopefully be closer or at least the gap between us and wherever.
  5. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Is he though? I know he had a knock but did FL not say he was available the other day?
  6. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Willian not being included today at all was a huge mistake. If its to do with his contract and not fitness that is. Huge rookie error.
  7. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Surprise surprise Azpi and Pulisic both off injured. Probably played most minutes along with Mount since project restart.
  8. Arsenal - Chelsea

    All Lampard has done is go back to a system which has worked in other games and hoped that it would work again today. I think when you look at their wide attackers, Aubamayang and Pepe who like to come very central and play as strikers basically it was obvious it wouldn’t work. Plus theyve got down the sides too easily. Far too easily.
  9. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Missing Willians ability to retain the ball under pressure. Mount every time he gets it under pressure either loses it or is pushed off the ball far too easily.
  10. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Good start has fizzled out. Every time Arsenal have the ball they seem to get in behind us far too easily. That Tierney to Aubamayang ball is on every time. James or Mount has to get tighter to Tierney so he cannot play that ball.
  11. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Great finish. Mount beforehand for that chance really should of played Oli in though.
  12. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Yeah Sarri had his own one in. I think. I think Courtois had issues with the GK coaches at the club and wasn’t necessarily impressed IIRC and I think it could be time for an upgrade/change.
  13. Kai Havertz

    Tbf if it doesn’t get done this summer it just takes a bad season from him and they could potentially lose more than 25-30m euros off his price tag. Just get it done. 70-75m euros rest in add ons. If they want him to play EL let him, heres hoping Rangers can put one over them and knock them out 🤣
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    Thats one thing about Mourinho I have always liked or admired. He isnt afraid to speak his mind regarding things like this or even in the past using psychology to get into his opposite numbers head before a game. I love that shit and wish more managers would use mind games or ‘we are club X we dont like club Y’ as it brings a bit more spectacle. Pep and Klopp are top coaches although they are very much the opposite with these mind games but I think Alex Ferguson was also a master at it along with Jose over the years. Also love seeing games where people just lose the fucking plot, that 2-2 v Spurs when we basically handed Leicester the title, despite the madness, the poor discipline, Hiddink getting floored, some of the challenges, that is what a big derby game should be about, well... to a lesser extent anyway. Everyones just all too matey now a days. No edge. No Ferguson-Benitez or Mourinho-Wenger rivalries and it is something I think these top games do lack at times, particularly the really fucking shit ones you watch where fuck all happens, the build up and the edge that these games used to have going into them, they dont have it anymore - I mean even if they did go out and its not the best game, you still had plenty to talk about.
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    Tremendous. Love him or hate him, he knows exactly what to say which will inevitably get a reaction out of OGS again who recently said managers were trying to influence referees by running a narrative that United always get penalties and freekicks through VAR.
