Re: A Successful Season?

A success? No.

An improvement? A million times yes.

You can't earn success without improvement so this has still been an overhwlemingly positive season despite the end.

Re: Devils Advocate

I've often had the same thoughts as you Cjay but it's all relative. Yes, we don't have the likes of Messi, De Bruyne etc but Championship teams don't have the likes of Van Dijk, Pique etc. As Weasel pointed out, sitting back and hitting us on the break hasn't limited our chances, it's been our finis...

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

It all depends on people's viewpoints. If we are trying to sign really good players then it should be a difficult summer trying to convince quality players to play in the championship. Add to that that if we need to raise funds before we buy then difficult decisions will have to be made as to who d...

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

One thing we can say for sure is that the ball is now squarely in Radz's court. Bielsa may not have given us promotion this season but he's given this club the next best thing - direction, purpose, a clear identity on the pitch. In a word: certainty, and how often have we had that in the last 15 yea...

Re: For Swannie & you know who?

I remember nice summer days in Brid & Filey as a kid, haven't been there in 20 years! Really need to take my Londoner missus up there, show her some proper coastline.

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

It will certainly be a difficult summer for Radz if Bielsa tells him to stick the job where the sun don't shine for being a skinflint. Even the most cautious of us, in terms of spending (and I'm one of them), can see that with maybe only 2, possibly 3 quality signings, we'd tear this league a new o...

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

Morning folks Young player of the season? I have to say Roberts. Hard not to pick Shackleton but Roberts spent plenty of time in the first team and improved as the season went on, particularly in the no10 role. Would Shack have done the same? Like Clarke, he might have started brightly, got injured ...

Re: Derby or Villa?

Ideal situation? Both team buses collide and fall into a volcano, but that's only slightly more likely than Grealish staying on his feet for 90 mins. Have to say Villa, they deserve it with their form under Smith and for Derby to sneak promotion after being so inconsistent, sneaking in the POs at th...

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

Alioski is a right winger at his best. We have nothing I'd want to start on the left wing atm Same. Ali did improve but Ayling showed him up latter half of the season. Imagine Ayling & Pablo's quality (hard to find at this level I know but indulge me here) on the left... Roofe would be in finisher'...

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

cant help feeling Ali would do a better job on the left wing next season than him. Same, though it's a last resort. We sort that position out and so much more success will come. I don't think Ali, much as I like the rascal, is the answer. His delivery is worse than Hermes. Although I'm quietly conf...

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

Roofe 36 on target 14 goals that is 1 goal every 2.5 shots just imagine if he was fit all season, and Harrison could cross the ball all season.... I've said all along if Roofe had been as relatively unblighted by injury as Sharp and Pukki he'd be 25+ goals. Even more if we had a left winger even ha...

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

Morning all, finally emerged from my hangover and starting to feel a bit better. Nothing cryptic about Roofe's tweet to me, but then plenty of people will read the worst possible context into anything they see. I've always liked Pontus but clearly there's something going on that we're not seeing, so...

Re: Wasted Funds

I think the biggest factor was that we didn't really know where to start in fixing this team. Turns out it all starts with the manager, funny old thing eh? Now we've clearly seen the calibre of Bielsa with almost entirely the tools he had available at the start of the season. I'd be immensely worrie...

Morning all! Who'd like to see penalties tonight? No. Chuffing. Way. Give me your predicted line up for this evening? Same as last time, with the exception of Bamford for Roofe. Shack to start over Forshaw and excel once again. To my mind he's much more promising a prospect than Clarke, another Jame...

I had the lads at work telling me WB wouldn't take it to extra time, nor was there any chance of pens when I told them our ideal scenario. Who's laughing now?

The hope would be that they kick lumps out of each other tonight and sustain a few injuries and red cards and then we have a stress free night on Wednesday... Mate, I said the same but thinking on it, the lads probably need the threat of a strong team for motivation. I can't help but see them under...
