THE OFFICIAL PROPER FOOTBALL THREAD 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Best game was Southampton Chelsea. Utd victory seemed hollow. Salah let me down again in fantasy. I guess a home game is next. Ali goal was good but he never convinces me.

These are just flashes of when their shit works properly. But then they go and get beat the next game at Burnley or something...

Until they can get some consistency going, especially defensively, it's just gonna be a case of them spinning their wheels week after week. I don't think they have the people to get them to the next level. I don't even know if they're capable of finding them or luring them to the club at the moment.

Newcastle gifted them the goals but I suppose they were pressing well. 

Rashford and Martial are alright but they aren’t Salah and Mane. 

Theyve spent money on Maguire and Pogba. They need more central mid options too. Ward Prowes is the kind of fighter they need. Jimenez at Wolves could  be a good focal point. 

Then they need a proper world class player like Cantona. Griezeman maybe.

That's the thing, I don't think today they could attract those type of players. Hell, if they were trying for Pogba today, I doubt he'd leave Juve for this.

I reckon its more about who they should get rid of. Loads of them there who have been there ages and shown they're not quits good enough. They should have got Ramsey from Arsenal when he was going for free though.

It’s okay to have a squad. Liverpool are winning the league with Hendo and Milner so maybe you don’t need good players.

Manchester probably isn’t that attractive either. I just don’t get the feeling Rash or Martial are hungry. And there’s no leaders driving the team.

They need another Keane if one could be found.

Them two are a managers dream though. Total professionals. Robots.  You feel if asked they would wash the kit. And they'd do it better than the normal laundry guys.

Whereas Pogba barely wants to play. But it means you don’t need a team of Messis but one would help.

Scour the earth. It’s all fine paying 80mil for Maguire but do some scouting. Tour the Irish non league.

If you can lose 5 games in a row and still have the advantage of a game in hand, you've won.

I don't see this big lossing streak happening tbh.

Newcastle 1995/96 season. 12 points clear in January. Just sayin'. :lol:

Last year, this time Liverpool had 10 huge points lead... now it's 13 points - if you look it like this, not big difference - just one game...

I'll celebrate when math say so - because it is Liverpool we're talking about...
