  1. The English Football Thread

    I just saw highlight of wba vs pool because klopp was complaining about solanke disallowed. Simple hand ball, correct decision by the ref. I think he started to lose his composure
  2. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    Hopefully Michy play because I still believe that he can still be a very good striker for us in the future. I am also interested to see our midfield choice. Bakayoko has struggled both playing as cm and holder. I thought he should be perfect playing that box to box midfield next to cesc but his offensive contribution is quite poor so far. I also don't like Kante as holder. Yes, he is maybe the best ballwinner in epl but his passing is not ambitious enough for a holder who tend to be the freest among the 3. Maybe try drinkwater as dm or try cesc as dm which if I am not wrong worked well against atletico
  3. The Conte Thread

    I complained about our transfer spending but at the same time I have no idea about our financial situation. I don't think our board is that stupid regarding finding player that we want. We were interested in walker, Conte said so on one of the interview, but city bought him for 50m. I'll be surprised if we don't at least ask for Mendy but again he went to city for 53. Maybe we can get Danilo, this I have no clue why. But we actually have a chance to get ox but for some I have no reason why he decided to play backup winger for Liverpool rather than be the starting wb for Chelsea that I don't know. That is why we signed zap in deadline day. If city and united keep spending like this there is no way we can compete year after year, that is a fact. I was already afraid last year when both teams were spending big last summer and again this summer without having to sell anybody significant. People say Conte need to go because his football is outdated then who replace him? If you want us to play like a pool maybe get sari from Napoli but again Liverpool haven't won anything under klopp. If you want us to play like city then we need to sell all of our midfield including Kante, bakayoko because they are not good enough on the ball.
  4. Champions League thread

    That was one of our worst performance. We got a gift from the ref in the formation of undeserved red for Ibra early in the game. It should have been an easy game yet if I am not wrong we were dominated by 10 man team.
  5. The English Football Thread

    This summer we need wb, city need wb. We signed zappacosta, city signed Mendy, Walker and Danilo. Not sure how can we compete with them.
  6. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    I am not sure I am than unhappy against Barca. Yes of course Besiktas is maybe easier but this is not the best barca team. They are a flawed team, yes Messi is still great but he is no longer that prime Messi that can almost single handedly win you big game. Suarez is underperformed, their midfield and back are suspect. I fancy our chances as long as we can keep them quiet in the 1st leg.
  7. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Psg vs real should be very tasty. I don't think Psg will mind. Their goal is to conquer Europe, there is no better way than to beat the defending champion. Both us n spurs for some reason got the hardest opp both in the group stage n round 16, whereas pool, city and united keep getting relatively easy opp
  8. The English Football Thread

    Completely agree, I don't want Hazard develop shoot first mentality and turn into a CR. I haven't watched Liverpool lately, only early in the season and last season. The way they setup their offense is completely different to us. I have no doubt if Hazard play in pool system he will look much better compare to what we see right now. He will have more space to operate. Last we play 343, the two midfielder always shielded the defenceman. Whereas in Klopp system both fb are flying forward and the two midfielder also run forward often either to act as decoy or to create width, far more offensive.
  9. The English Football Thread

    Not surprised Liverpool draw against Liverpool, game after European game is always tough. Good for us though that both arsenal n pool draw. Just saw the lineup for city against united, not surprised that Jesus start, he is a much better fit for what pep want from his cf plus against united he is a more willing runner.
  10. The Conte Thread

    The moment this summer window shut, I know that we have very little chance competing for title. We basically only add zapp and drinkwater to a flawed squad of last season. The rest are kinda replacement for player that left or sold. Our biggest need this season is WB. That is so obvious from last season yet we only signed Zappacosta.
  11. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    The ref is a joke
  12. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Nope. For me the definition of top keeper is the one who save all shot that should have been saved and rarely make mistakes. Sound simple but only top keeper does theese.
  13. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    Wing back is the most demanding position in term of stamina. You basically need to go up and down the full length of the pitch every game, I am not surprised that Conte decided to rest Alonso since he has basically played almost all of our games
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    Don't get me wrong. He is still a wonderful player but that young and prime Messi was just ridiculous. You can see every time he touched the ball, the other team defenders were just frightened of him
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    Completely agree. For me Hazard and Neymar are at the same level. I will put current Messi at the same bracket, 30 years old messi not prime messi. Prime messi was almost at extraterrestrial category. Hopefully we can have a strong enough squad to challenge for UCL because player at this level should challenge for UCL every year.
