Ugh I tried, I even started this post twice, but I just can't wish England good luck tonight. It's just not in me. I'm sorry folks. I'll go halfway and hope all fans out there stay safe and avoid any crowd troubles or Russian dramas. And may the tournament be kind to the Liverpool players in rich experiences and hopefully not too many injuries.

18 Jun 2018 14:44:14
Haha not one of my more popular posts.

18 Jun 2018 15:22:58
I created 4 fake accounts just to give you 5 thumbs down.

In all seriousness, I agree partially. I do want England to win and I will watch it, but I'm not massively nervous or excited. Feels like I'm gearing up to watch United vs West Brom. I'd prefer one specific team to win but I'm just hoping it won't be a boring game most of all.

18 Jun 2018 15:22:59
Take that as a compliment me friend.

18 Jun 2018 15:25:36
You got a snarky response from me which the Eds decided not to post (apologies eds, I'm a bit run down and irritable, I shouldn't have posted) .

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I gathered which is why I just deleted it. We all need a filter at times.}

18 Jun 2018 15:45:43
I’m Irish, so it’s a bit of banter so no problem Putney mate. Sure look, we got kicked off the park by a desperate danish squad so we aren’t even there. That might make you feel a bit less irritable.

18 Jun 2018 15:46:53
Nice one mk- I though it was just me who did that.

18 Jun 2018 15:49:52
Wanting your country and your team to win are not mutually exclusive. I would be far happier if Liverpool had won the Champions League last month than if England were to win the World Cup but it doesn't stop me being happy if England go on to win the World Cup even though Liverpool lost in Kiev.

Think of it like loving your wife / long term partner but still fancying the girl in Accounts. You can still dream about both :)

18 Jun 2018 16:04:15
Don't get me wrong g1dgo, I always back the home nations. Even Scotland. Okay, maybe not Scotland.

If I'm honest I just support any one who has a Liverpool player. So Brazil for Firmino, England for Hendo/ Arnold, Senegal for Mane, Egypt for Salah, and Croatia for Lovren.

As long as none of those guys get injured and they all have a good tournament, I'm happy. If England can win it on top of that, perfect. I'd rather England go out in the group stages than see Firmino get injured though!

18 Jun 2018 16:13:33
If England somehow did win it though, the party would be great. Also one of the people I'm contracting with at the moment is giving all staff Thursday afternoon off next week (including paying my fellow contractors and temps full wages for the afternoon) for the Belgium game and have committed to doing so far every England game on a week day. For that reason alone, I'm backing England.

Generally though, whilst I don't particularly mind either way and I'm just enjoying the summer football in general, I'd still prefer England to win than not win. Especially when we have players in the squad.

18 Jun 2018 16:15:21
I'm with you aoe mate, I'll go the step further, I hope Tunisia smash England lol it may, just may bring the majority of them England players down a peg or two. Especially the likes of Kane who thinks he's gods gift.

18 Jun 2018 16:34:50
Didn't realise you were Irish AOE, that changes everything, I'm all for a bit of international ribbing.

Anyway you guys need to find something to keep you busy whilst your team are on their holidays.

18 Jun 2018 16:47:22
Tunisia ain't going to smash England and If you hate England so much maybe you shouldn't support an English team.

I LOVE Liverpool, to death. But I'd rather England won the world cup than anything. The buzz is amazing when the national team do well (apparently)

This is the world cup! Brazil and Germany etc, half of you sound like you'd rather watch Fulham v Watford!

{Ed001's Note - Scouse not English. I couldn't give a toss about England, they couldn't give a toss about the city of Liverpool when Thatcher was trying to destroy it, why should anyone from Liverpool give a toss about England?}

18 Jun 2018 16:48:25
Even when they play they’re on the holidays. Sometimes that camaraderie gets us results. Sometimes it gets us hammered by a weak danish team.

18 Jun 2018 16:59:00
Ed1, exactly my thoughts too.

I would much rather watch Fulham v Watford, you've got that right PH. It'd be much more entertaining than watching that dross. Every time you watch England play it's like watching grass grow.

18 Jun 2018 17:02:32
Come on Ed, that was a long time ago and things have moved on. It wasn't only liverpool was it?

Reason for Liverpool fans to care about England, vice captain plays for Liverpool and young trent of course. I bet Jordan would prioritise the world cup over any domestic titles.

I'm not trying to pick a fight but I'm an England fan. I get aoe, being Irish, Liverpool is Dublin sister, I'm half scottish myself but I want the country to make a good account of themselves on the world stage.

{Ed001's Note - and we have players playing for other countries, so why give any more of a toss about England than them? You are clearly not from Liverpool so please do not tell me how to think, I will never give a rat's arse about England. I really do not care what Hendo prioritises, I only care about how he performs when he pulls on the Liverpool shirt. I am sure probably would prefer a World Cup because there is no chance of it ever happening, unlike trophies in a Liverpool shirt which are expected not a miracle.}

18 Jun 2018 17:06:20
I'd say liverpool was one of the most celebrated cities in England these days. City of culture not so long ago, home of the fab 4. And the beatles

Thatcher never cared about working class people not just people from Liverpool.

{Ed001's Note - and your point is? The city of culture was nothing to do with England. It was a EU thing.}

18 Jun 2018 17:21:52
Ed01=spot on as always
If they do well fine, if not so what Liverpool is my team, my Country is an embarrassment on so many political and moral levels so stuff ‘em. Harry Kane’s arrogance in the build up to this game is not befitting a national captain, he’s won nothing and Hendo should still be the captain as he has the maturity, only reason Southgate gave it to Kane is because in some games he’s going to play the Spurs liability and donkey that is Eric Dier, Dier by name and dire by nature.
Football, cricket, Rugby none of them are coming home until we display a little humility instead of the gutter press encouraging the English God given right to feel superior attitude to everything with absolutely zero justification other than the disgusting great British empire horrible southern based vitriol. I’m descended from celts who spent generations fighting the bloody English from London. I’ve more in common with Ireland, Scotland and the North East than the bloody St George’s Park lot. FA old boys club 🤢.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate.}

18 Jun 2018 17:46:11
Ed 001. I’m not from Liverpool so don’t really understand the history of the city as well as any local. I am somewhat fanatical about the history of LFC and so do have an affinity towards anything Scouse. You have explained the Thatcher years but that was 30 years ago. Not sure if any of the current England team were even born then.

Out of curiosity how do you feel Liverpool is treated these days and does it make you closer to being an Anglophile?

{Ed001's Note - I have found that foreigners have far more respect for Liverpool than the English. So no, I would say I am struggling to find any reason to care about England.

Patriotism is a false concept invented in medieval times by kings to get peasants to fight their wars.}

18 Jun 2018 17:49:28
As a Scot now living in Canada I get caught on the fence watching England happy to see them win but equally happy to see them lose especially in humilating circumstances.
Why I support Liverpool quite simply King Kenny.
But the scottish connection goes all the way back to the first Liverpool team which was full of Scots and played in blue and white.
There where probably bagpipes playing Scotland the brave before kick off.

18 Jun 2018 18:08:39
Well said Ed1 and Koppite.

18 Jun 2018 18:25:45
I live down South and can categorically assure you all that the general consensus about what the people of Liverpool are like, is disgusting. People who have never even been to Liverpool call me a bin dipper just for wearing the shirt in public. I've been told I support murderers. I've been asked if I have a job etc.

I do still consider myself English because I'm not from Liverpool. But I'd like to believe I'm an adopted Scouser because I'd rather see Liverpool win the Community Shield than see England win the World Cup 3 times in a row. Anything England do is a bonus and I don't blame anybody North of Birmingham for hating the South and having no patriotic feelings. I'm only 50 miles North of London and I still feel like they look down their noses at me.

You born and bred Northerners have right to hate our guts in my opinion. I'd like to think I'm one of the exceptions though 😂 We're not all stuck up supremacists!

18 Jun 2018 18:36:24
Cheers Mo S
I’ve not got an Egypt shirt else I’d be wearing it as I drew your boys in the sweep 👍 instead I’m wearing my Javier Mascerano Argentina shirt that I bought to support him when he played for Liverpool.
The price of England shirts is a disgrace, just glad my son never asked for one. The furthest I’m prepared to go is to let him have a St George cross on his football boots by his name. Kids are still England fans as they don’t yet understand what a north south divided country we are.
As Ed01 says my son will soon be educated that he is scouse (well Merseyside as we are from wirral) and not English, the national anthem is only any use for that fantastic old Billy Connolly stand up sketch from way back.
I encourage all scousers to YouTube for it, classic. He also says in the same gig that the very desire to become a politician should automatically disqualify you from being allowed to become one 👍 top Scotsman, down with the English sassanacs 👊🏻.

18 Jun 2018 18:45:28
Good on you MK
Having met you I know that you’re a genuine guy, though clearly a bit debauched 👠🔐🍌.

18 Jun 2018 18:49:56
Haha, thanks - I think! My red boots were beautiful just to be clear 😉.

{Ed001's Note - it is just odd that you wore heels and claimed that they were studs...}

18 Jun 2018 19:02:17
look at the Irish lad just kicking over a hornets nest for the laugh. Apologies anyone who was irked. It was a tongue and cheek post. In fairness though, was an interesting read from the outside. Shocking mk, wear that jersey proudly mate. Pretty much agree with everything salah usually says. Koppite spot on. And ed1 as usual nails it.

18 Jun 2018 19:37:25
Ed001 your words on Thatcher remind me of my Old man and my Uncle. they hate her and the way the Scouse population was treated by the Tory's.

Being an 80's baby, I have heard many stories and it seems they did not want the best for my generation either.

My Mama calls Teresa May Thatcher pt2.

{Ed001's Note - I would agree on that. My parents had to move down south for work during the Thatcher era, so I grew up being spat on, called a murderer and accused of every theft around just because I was from Liverpool. People think the jokes about hubcaps going missing are just harmless jokes, and in the main they are, but some people are stupid enough to actually believe them and sadly they can often be those in a position of power.}

18 Jun 2018 20:10:30
Oh my gosh Ed001! that's horrible but totally believable!

My Grandparents were immigrants to this country so they and my parents received similar treatment.

However, in my dads case he was very close with 3 gentlemen who took him in and tried to deflect trouble from him as he was very young and hardly knew any English having come from Ghana not many years before. Of these 3 kind men, 2 were Scouse one was Scottish.

They now identify as my Uncle Tony (literally as he married my Aunt), My Uncle Chris and My Uncle Charlie.

Theres so much more to Liverpool with my family than just LFC!

Ed001, my love and respect to you and your parents. you went through hell!

I'm sorry, I went off a bit too long there!

I love Scousers!

{Ed001's Note - my parents never really knew about it mate. As a kid I was too immature not to attach some blame to them for moving down south. They just had to suffer my moods as a kid, poor buggers, while never knowing the reason why.}

18 Jun 2018 20:18:07
Koppite_68 What a atorming post!
I felt like you were about to start that much needed bloody revoloution!

Tell me date time and place.

All jokes aside, great post and nice to see modern people still have principles and not this pretentious new age "all inclusive" values.

18 Jun 2018 20:22:47
Thats really sad for you and your parents Ed!

I know didn't exactly have a choice but good on you for riding through the storm! Particularly in a time period where even if you have spoken out, your words may have fallen on deaf ears!

{Ed001's Note - it's not so bad mate, it made me who I am after all. Though most people would probably say that is proof that it was bad!}

18 Jun 2018 20:34:09
LOL that did me laugh that last line ! Ed001 you're a star!

{Ed001's Note - aren't stars millions of years old??? I am not that old! Just look it now. Trust me nothing in life could ever have prepared me for the internet and what it is like!}

18 Jun 2018 21:16:11
Thanks Red Kurd but as my username suggests I’m 50 years old so not many would class me as “modern” 👴🏻 Especially those who witnessed me play on Sat, I’m like a cross between Alan Hansen, Glen Roeder and Franco Baresi but without the composure, skill or tackling skills of any of them 🤥, just ask Ken from Ireland 😛.

19 Jun 2018 01:17:45
Jeeze Koppite_68 you sound like a 1 man industrial lawnmower, hacking down all your victims!

Cant wait to see the highlights on YouTube.

18 Jun 2018 11:24:45
Ed001/ 002. Clear your diaries for June 15th 2019 if you can? We will see if we can hold on to OUR cup.

Ps, highlights will be on YouTube tonight.

{Ed001's Note - it was a fluke you got it!}

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Jun 2018 11:40:26
You are not wrong ed. Only 1-0 down until about 70th minute. And we were robbed are clear penalty which should've seen Groomy red carded! Cheats 😉.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't like to suggest the ref was biased, but he had a yellow shirt on.}

18 Jun 2018 11:56:06
Let’s just say 002 picking me, was your downfall 001.
#shouldofhad2 #crosseyedlinesman.

18 Jun 2018 12:20:54
Ed001, we'll destroy them next year mate. I'm taking up football again full time to get fit so I'll be good for a hattrick. Crossing my fingers my ankle ligaments don't go again though 🤕😂.

{Ed001's Note - don't start getting in the excuses early! If your ankle ligaments go that is no excuse. I expect to see an MKS ready to run through brick walls with the touch of Maradona by next year...}

18 Jun 2018 13:02:52
I'm already running the roads with a cow on my back.

18 Jun 2018 12:56:25
I'll be there Ed. Even if I am on crutches! Can we hope to see yourself there in 12 months time? It would just make my dreams come true to see you in a full suit telling Ken to push out and stop playing like he's 60 😂.

{Ed001's Note - ken is 60! Or at least he was once, a long time ago now. I am hoping to be there for it. That is certainly the plan.}

18 Jun 2018 13:21:20
Some say losing me before the game had the same effect as losing Salah in the final.

18 Jun 2018 13:37:56
Definitely Carra. We never recovered mentally.

Ed001, I think he said 60, but he drank a bottle of whiskey on his way over so he was probably a bit forgetful.

Barry, remember to up the load to 2 cows after 3 days.

{Ed001's Note - I am just hoping BiL's missus doesn't see what he just called her!}

18 Jun 2018 14:03:50
I knew that someone would latch onto that post as soon as I sent it. Some friends you are.

18 Jun 2018 14:06:45
I've just sent my donation to you Benny. What a fantastic day and a great turn out for the first year. Hope to meet more of you on June 15th 2019. I might even train for it so I can last more than 30 seconds! My Mrs will never be that lucky.

ED001 I searched for a review of the game but couldn't find one, is it something you'll be doing at all? Appreciate you're a busy man but I was looking forward to hearing your glowing report about my Hummels-esque performance.

18 Jun 2018 14:19:25
Hahaha that tickled me mrs BIL on BILs back keep it up Barry.

18 Jun 2018 17:15:44
It’s funny how different sides see the game, I thought the officials gave you more as a sort of sympathy! Don’t remember the penalty shout and definitely didn’t see groomy touch anybody! 😚I won’t comment on our 2 dubious disallowed goals haha 😂 Benny also picked us all out of position to give you a chance! 😀.

18 Jun 2018 17:19:59
I would like to join in next year lads if that's possible? wasnt a good time for me as i am going through hell.

18 Jun 2018 17:58:52
Sorry to hear that mate. Hope you get through it. The charity match was a wonderful way to show how these sites are more than anonymous words in a forum. This site kept a smile on my face through dreadful times. You’ll never walk alone mate.

18 Jun 2018 18:09:14
Sorry to hear that berg, you best go on Ed01’s team then as they are now familiar with going through hell as well 🤣🤣.

{Ed001's Note - sorry to Cotsi just doing the review now. I am ensuring I stay as unbiased as always. Honest.}

18 Jun 2018 18:11:20
John it was the only time MK got behind me as I thought the ball would run out of play but it never, he then dinked it into the big fella and Chris the Cat mullered him, cleared out the lot with his feet (pure quality) 😺👍🏆😘.

18 Jun 2018 18:40:49
No worries Ed, I appreciate the effort that goes into writing those reviews and it must have been even more effort to re-watch the actual game, and that's not a dig at your team losing. Although whilst on that subject, your team didn't score, with me at CB, so that must hurt. Adam did beat me at rock paper scissors after the game though, so he's the real winner :)

{Ed001's Note - I haven't actually had a chance to rewatch it mate, that is a big problem, but as I am not writing a serious review it doesn't really matter. A serious review would end up getting bogged down on how bad the first touch of everyone was and the passing etc. That is no dig at the people taking part as I am looking at it compared to watching professional players play. It is no fun reading something like that, so I just thought I would do it as a light hearted one. I mean I would hate to point out all your flaws in one review, it would take too long and we would need to give you your own page on the review..... ;-)

18 Jun 2018 21:49:54
Criticism is nothing but advice on how to improve mate, that's how I see it anyway. Besides I'd take it all with a pinch of salt, you're clearly bitter that the better team won ;-) . In all seriousness though I hope you enjoyed the watch and I look forward to meeting you there next year!

18 Jun 2018 11:24:09
Hi Eds,

Just got into work today and got told Klopp and the team are working hard to convince Pulisic to join, but will have to fend of man utd who are willing to offer martial as part of the deal.

Do you know if there is any truth behind this

Secondly i know random names are the eds .................
Cheers guys/ gals.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any tapping up of Pulisic by Klopp at this time. Please don't apologise about random players, just don't ask about them on the Liverpool pages. I appreciate the World Cup is going on and the Liverpool fans all have their Kleenex out about certain players but this is not the place to ask.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2018 11:40:38
I would Ed002 but all the Kleenex is sold out everywhere!
It’s like when it snows and people start fighting each other in the Asda for the last loaf of bread.

18 Jun 2018 10:28:36
Ed002/ 01

Can you please clarify.
Macca mentioned Liverpools aim was to go for Dembele loan to buy deal, however a few pieces needed to be moved as in Griezman to Barcelona for anything to potentially materialise which is what Macca stated.
As Griezeman is now staying at Atletico, it sounds like Barcelona will need Dembele now.

So. Eds are you aware of any alternative players to Ousmane Dembele Liverpool have held interest in, or have had discussions with agents or club recently?

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - You need to ask Macca. I have explained over and over that I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Barcelona about Dembele.}

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jun 2018 09:30:19
What do people think of mahrez as an alternative to Fekir? Proven prem league, good goals and assists ratio, good injury record and could play a number of positions. I have heard concerns over tracking back and defensive work etc but if pep a man who demands 100% from everyone is eyeing him surely an option. Move to city seems to have stagnated at the moment coupd we sneak in for a player i believ woupd flourish under klopp?

Agree2 Disagree11

18 Jun 2018 10:19:50
Not for me. He’s only had 1 good season and attitude very questionable. Plus Leicester want major money for him.

18 Jun 2018 11:15:45
Do we need an alternative? Why not wait til after the world cup and sign fekir himself.

{Ed002's Note - Will Liverpool be able to afford him then? Will he still be availsble then? Would Lyon be interested with even talking with Liverpool then?}

18 Jun 2018 11:19:56
Off to City isn’t he?

{Ed002's Note - It seems the Fat Kid from Bolton FKFB) was last reporting that in January Mahrez was hanging around outside Klopp's tent in Dubai just waiting for his medical having already agreed the transfer.}

18 Jun 2018 13:15:34
Class player Mahrez.
He won't be at Liverpool this coming season, but I wish he were.

18 Jun 2018 13:49:53
The fat kid as been very quiet on twatter Ed he's back on today after being on holiday 😁.

{Ed002's Note - Did he go on holiday with his friend Handjob Ernest Adaulfo?}

18 Jun 2018 21:50:23
I don't, Ron. I never wanted Mahrez here cos he has become lazy and inconsistent and City are welcome to him of course if they allow LC to pull their pants down.

18 Jun 2018 08:26:22
Corentin Tolisso apparently is a huge Steven Gerrard/ Liverpool fan and his dream is to one day play in the Premier League. Imagine a midfield of Keita (L), Fabinho (C) and Tolisso (R) .

No way Bayern would sell him in my opinion and no evidence Klopp is interested, but it has been slow on here lately so just thought I'd post the latest rumour in the press!

Agree10 Disagree3

18 Jun 2018 09:21:22
Is he good then?

18 Jun 2018 09:26:40
MK, seen plenty of reports and rumours, mainly Liverpool related sites and fan pages though, of Porto LB Alex Telles. 35mil release clause. I doubt the accuracy of the reports however it would make for some interesting and no doubt, heated debate about who would start, he or Robertson? If such reports are true, which Im doubtful of btw, you would have to assume he would be first choice LB, as I doubt Liverpool are in the position to be buying 35 million pound bench warmers that would play minimal games.

18 Jun 2018 09:27:42
Just to bring a bit more heat in your story. ;)

Rummenigge said that they will listen to offers [. ] especially the midfield is very crowded.

18 Jun 2018 09:54:24
Klopp Mania, he is fantastic and only 23 years old. Last season he played about 2500 minutes of football because of how many midfielders Bayern have, but he still managed 10 goals and 7 assists.

He is a powerful runner on and off the ball, breaks into the box and beyond the forward line, has a lethal shot anywhere inside 30 yards, a good finisher off both feet or his head, he csn hit a cross field diagonal effortlessly, and his ability to see a pass in behind and weight it perfectly is as good as anyone in world football right now. His weaknesses are all defensive. He doesn't read the game well and his tackles are a bit aimless but that's just not his game.

In January when Macca said we were after a top French International, I'm pretty sure I said at the time that I hope it is Tolisso. He wouldn't be a like for like replacement for Coutinho because he isn't that kind of silky, flair player. He's a bit more heavy metal than orchestra. Not too dissimilar to Oxlade-Chamberlain actually, but just with more quality.

That is a very interesting comment if legit, Crammie. I won't believe he is an option for us though until I hear it from the Eds and they've not mentioned him once as an option for us. So this is a very hypothetical discussion.

Brisbane I saw those Telles rumours. Great wing back but he really cannot defend. His set piece delivery in particular is incredible though and he can play on the left of midfield too. Would be an interesting option, but again he is just anothervrandom player right now. I'd prefer him as a squad option to Moreno though!

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have never shown any interest in Tolisso and Liverpool has never been offered him. In recent years there have been three English sides showing some level of interest or other but the move to Bayern last year was decided over the then interest of Juventus after Arsenal had stepped back. Bayern are letting a couple of Midfield players leave, but Tolisso is not one of them.}

18 Jun 2018 10:15:22
Maybe a move to rangers then!

18 Jun 2018 09:40:11
Bayern would sell him they got goretzka now. for the right money they may sell.
however as for tollisso he is a very hit and miss player. i don't see how he is any better than hendo at all.
entire france team is overhyped beyond realms of reality imo. i would stay clear from WC fever and french players.
if i wanted a midfielder to add numbers (i don't think we need one) i would go for aaron mooy. he kept an entire football club in EPL last season, severely underrated. he is something different from all types of midfielders we have.

18 Jun 2018 11:22:44
Cheers for the information Ed002. I didn't for one minute expect him to be a realistic option anyway so I didn't get my hopes up.

Congratulations on your team winning the charity game by the way mate.

{Ed002's Note - Tactics and a vigorous team talk.}

18 Jun 2018 11:42:59
And Benny bribed the ref but that's a minor detail 😉

Thanks for your help though in all seriousness. Thanks to you buying the yellow kit, the charity pot was a few hundred quid better off!

{Ed002's Note - Really appreciate it. I will see if I can find a sponsor for next year.}

18 Jun 2018 12:59:36
Ed002, might I recommend RTFP Ltd? They are financial advisors based in Gloucestershire, UK. No particular reason why I suggest them 😉.

18 Jun 2018 21:53:11
Bayern just signed Tolisso last season for a shed load of cash and he has impressed massively to the point of being a starter for France in a midfield where it is not easy to get into. No way on earth he is leaving Bayern and in fact IMO, their midfield will be built around him in the coming years.

18 Jun 2018 08:11:46
G'day Eds,
Ed022 you previously said this in response to a question about Brewter's 5 year contract:
{Ed002's Note - I don't see it making any difference. }
Could you explain why that is, please? We'll probably end up just selling him anyway or what?
Thanks a mil.

{Ed002's Note - The question was specifically asked about the impact that his signing will have on the "Liverpool front line". Hence my answer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2018 09:52:06
If he's signing a new contract he would have been told he will be getting chances.

The swapping of shirts by south Korea coach was very funny but actually a great tactic to confuae the opposition!

That Mario Balloteli - what a waste of a talent, career and oppertunity he has had.

{Ed001's Note - Celtic did a similar thing in the build up to the European Cup final in 67. They played all their players completely out of position in training matches.}

I think give Balotelli credit he has put his head down let his football for two seasons in a row now do the talking for him and has got back into the National team for me finally maybe he has grown up and now appreciates his talents albeit in a easier league then the prem.

I have enjoyed this.

{Ed001's Note - glad to hear that neggie.}

That Korean story made me laugh, reminded me of an old friend who was Chinese, more than a couple of times I messaged her saying “you completely blanked me today what’s up? ” for her to reply “yeah that wasn’t me, you just can’t tell us apart” 🙈.

Liverpool being linked with Richarlison. I wouldn't be against such a signing. He looks very promising. Can play all along the front three. Good back up player.

No thanks. His finishing is the worst for any footballer in the world right now. All the running around and fancy tricks mean zilch for a forward if he cannot put the ball in the back of the net.

18 Jun 2018 07:49:26
This makes me question if you have ever even seen Richarlison play? IB is right, he can't finish, he's not a good player at all.

I'm sure the media link us to players like him and Shaqiri just to wind us up!

18 Jun 2018 07:53:33
I will repeat my post from last time someone mentioned this player - I’ve seen him live a number of times and I can assure you he’s one of the worst finishers ever. Save the money and give a more natural finisher like Wilson the chance - if only he was called Wilsino heh.

18 Jun 2018 10:23:54
I agree with Prince Hendo that he would be a good back up player. It's easy to forget that He's only 20/ 21 years old.

His form fell off a cliff in the second half of the season, but so did everyone's form at Watford except Doucoure. None of of them were good enough. In his first 17 games, Richarlison got 5 goals and 5 assists. He clearly has ability but as with all young players, he is still very inconsistent.

Worth keeping in mind that at a similar age, Salah was also a terrible finisher and scored half as many goals in a much stronger Chelsea side. If he was available for a realistic price, I'd possibly like to sign him. I say 'possibly' because I would like to see Camacho, Jones, Wilson and Woodburn given a fair crack in pre-season first of all!

Have we ever looked at Australia’s Mat Ryan? Seems to make very few mistakes, and good with both feet.

{Ed0333's Note - yes we did look at him a few years ago.

He did pretty well for Brighton last season but I don’t think he’s much of an improvement on Karius and would cost a lot. Brighton paid a fair amount for him last summer.
