Re: Radz on Derby

Because an owner should invest in his own business to make it successful should they not? You invest in the bits that will provide guaranteed returns. Example buying back the stadium as it then saves the club £ms a year on rent and if everything went tits up you could sell the stadium and get back ...

Re: Radz on Derby

FFP is a smokescreen that allows owners like Radz to get away with being cheap and selling to buy ( he is cheap, not a crook or anything but definitely transfer funds wise cheap). How long are we going to use paranoia and our history to justify not spending decent sums?, not saying tons and tons bu...

Re: Mallik Wilks

Impossible to say. Nicky AJose had an even more impressive season in league 1 before coming to us and made no impact whereas others have made bigger steps up in class look easy. Some of his goals you would have to question the standard of keeping and similarly a couple of the assists were only assis...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Great clip and what a variety of goals. Had forgotten also how many times he had hit the woodwork - he could easily have had a few more goals. Awareness and knowing what position to get into are far more important than speed - just ask Gary Lineker.

Re: Football rule changes for the 2019-20 season

100% agree re the offside. If an attacker who isn't interfering is being marked then that defending is playing everyone else onside. So surely if the attacker isn't interfering then the defender marking him should be deemed to also be not interfering and as such not playing anyone onside. As such an...

Re: Gaetano Berardi

I think most people would have started him for the second leg, and then changed their mind after the event. His versatility is a huge plus in a small squad. Without checking all his red cards at least 2 shouldn't have been, the one v Derby and think there was one where he was sent off for retaliatio...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 22nd May)

Spurs are preparing a 10m to take Jack Clarke to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Thoughts, if the money was reinvested? A very tricky one because the Jack Clarke who first burst onto the scene looked amazing. However he had gone completely off the boil before his illness. If Clarke can rediscover th...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

Yeah wouldn't like someone who scored 10 goals in 21 starts (11 times subbed off, 10 times subbed on so that sort of cancels itself out). 10 goals in 21 matches at a completely new team, in a league you haven't played in, in a country you haven't played in and being short of match fitness. Yeah defi...

He has a new job doesnt he? Writing for someone so that's probably why. FootballInsider i think. Very likely the case. To hear some fans quote him though you'd think he was some amazing insightful guy instead of simply another ex player that hasn't done anything managerially yet knows tactics insid...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

With a Bielsa pre-season under his belt, he'd comfortably be the best striker in the division. He was in the German national squad the year they won the WC. If an average journeyman like Pukki can score 29 goals, he definitely would. Using the Gignac example from Bielsa's Marseille, a big burly for...

Re: Dan James-DEAL IS OFF

The thing is that the loan to buy deal was dependant on us reaching the prem. If James had signed and we hadn't been promoted Swansea could have simply recalled him anyway.

Re: Derby or Villa?

100% villa, pretty much the same reasons everyone has mentioned. I have a morbid curiosity to see whats left of Derby once the loans have gone back and FFP has kicked in, i think lampard may leave aswell. Guess the same applies if Villa lose though surely they cant continue with their current spend...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 21st May)

Manchester City have slapped a 20m price tag on 22yo Jack Harrison! According to The Sun, Leeds are desperate for the winger to join on a permanent basis! Thoughts? A club can ask what they want for a player, doesn't mean anyone would pay that price and certainly not us. Harrison has potential but ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 20th May)

Yes cant remember who said it (maybe Saint Gary Neville) but you should never jog on a football pitch (have a feeling it was Neville about Pogba), its true though. You could argue Ayling and Berardi cant anticipate their Captain tackling his own goalie but good defenders anticipate everything and b...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

One thing i did notice is if you look at that Marseille team, lot of pace, tons of pace. Imo that is something Bielsa will look to add. I would have said that's a definite. The 2 things that Bielsa consistently mentioned was us not taking our chances and the ability of someone to run with the ball ...

As you say mate the key is to find the right players but again as you say we havent for a long time and that is the concern. Truth be told we will probably never find the ideal players Bielsa wants because as i expressed with my concerns with Bielsa when he first arrived the best players for Bielsa...

Re: 2019/20 Transfer Rumours & Discussion Thread

I take your point Cjay but the key is to find the right players which we haven't for a long time. The hope would be that Bielsa and Orta can between them get more right than they get wrong and the major point is that we also have a manager that can improve players. So if we sign the right young play...

I don't get you at times Cjay, you keep banging on about Brentford being brilliant at signing unknowns then selling them for profit yet when we do it you criticise. If we get decent money for KP that is because Bielsa transformed him into that player, we'd have been lucky to have got £100k for him l...

Just put your boot through it man !

You could say that about much of our daisy-cutter shots too
We clear the ball v Sheff Utd and prob wouldn't have even needed the play-offs. Time and place for f*nny merchants!
