Re: Breakout Star

I think injuries would likely be the easiest way in for any of our youngsters. Shackleton is probably the closest to being a first team starter although Strujyk hasn't done himself any harm and would likely be first choice back up now as centreback and def mid.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Where is this info Weasel Milan trying desperately to convince him to stay. He came incredibly close to joining us in January but it came down to his marketing profile and moving to the Championship wasn't seen as a good idea. Now we are in the prem it appears that it is a battle between us and Mil...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 7th August) Season ticket waiting list will be open to the public from 9am this morn

I saw someone make an excellent point on a Brighton forum that I was reading the other day: White is contracted to Brighton until 2022 (rumour has it they have an option to extend this to 2023). Let’s say he’s on £10k p/w on his current contract. Brighton decide to offer him a new 5 year contract f...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Imo the way to approach it is the Leipzig/Dortmund way. But young gems to develop and sell off for 3x what we paid. Not overspending on Championship players. It is a great way buy only if you get it right. Easy to spend decent money on a youngster and then they never fulfill their potential. Pawel ...

Re: Said Benrahma

I agree that this is probably a big factor. If Liverpool had bid £22m for White yesterday, I have a feeling may well have been accepted. I think Scum get a taste of this as well, Villa demanding £80m for Grealish (worth £25 max) or Leicester demanding £80m for Maguire (worth £30m max) because it’s ...

Re: Marcelo Bielsa

PJ asked for extra time off preseason and the Villa incident. Izzy felt he was fit enough, Bielsa didn’t agree, Izzy felt as a PL player he should have been selected. Augustin was the same, he felt he should be included. Bielsa likes a small squad, he doesn’t handle ‘characters’. Ask every PL team ...

Since the 3-3 draw with Cardiff, Kiko has conceded 76.47% of shots faced Prior to the Cardiff game he was EFL player of the month. Easy to pick stats over a short period to try to sway an argument. Similarly Messlier conceded something like 3 more than the expected goals against from the shots face...

Bielsa hasn’t a great record either with players who have a “personality” Izzy Brown, Nketiah, Augustin, Pontus he is an old fashioned world class coach but today’s modern player needs handling differently. Strange to use those you list as evidence against Bielsa dealing with players with 'personal...

Cant see this fan turning on Bielsa if we have a poor next season. He has uplifted my heart so much these past two seasons. He has his flaws but I couldnt think of a better coach to have at EL. Not often I agree with you but am 100% on this. Some fans simply have unrealistic expectations. Bielsa ha...

Re: Said Benrahma

Don't Brentford base all their buys on stats? I'd say the only caveat with that is it doesn't tell you if the players is mentally tough, will he continue to demand the ball if he is having a bad game, if it's not going well for the team. Does it show mistakes made, can't beat a good scout and sever...

Re: Player Profile : Kiko Casilla

Nothing wrong with a keeper coming so far out his goal area occasionally, I used to do it a lot, which allowed me to get to balls before strikers/wingers. Kiko does need to keep an eye on his judgement when coming out his area though. My only problem with continental keepers is, they tend to punch ...

The Championship title is Bielsa's first league title in his management career. In 1980, after retiring from playing in football, Bielsa decided to start a career as a football manager. His first job was coaching the youth divisions of Newell's. In 1990, he was given the task of managing their firs...

Not sure how that will work out for us, on one hand we dont have a particularly deep squad, on the other it gave us that free half time Pablo sub.
To be fair Bielsa often made half time subs before those rules came in.
