Re: England v Pakistan

4 centuries in the England first innings, both Pakistan openers very close to centuries 5 and 6 and we're only through day two .... is this a cricket wicket or a tarmac road?

Re: Big six proposal - Unbelievable or not!!!!

But didn't they want their cake and eat it. Wanting to play in the premier League as well? I would say good riddance as well, but only if they pee'd off and left the Premier League totally. They wanted to play a reserve team in the prem basically, which could only work if players from one squad did...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022. Argentina v Poland + Saudi Arabia v Mexico

That's a fair call, faaip, but I don't think shining in an international side necessarily equates to a player being able to cut it in the Prem. The cream will, obviously, but I still wouldn't take a punt on WC performances alone. Neither would I and we have in the past to our detriment, Brolin and ...

Spain/France and England bottom half of the draw. Just Argentina so far in the top half.

Aye, been some decent, lesser known players on show. I think I'd want to see them at club level, in a system similar to ours before taking a punt, though.
International football is actually a level down from Premiership football..

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 30th November) - Record losses may force Juve to sell McKennie

Proven striker in Jan s gonna cost 40m plus, and we have Rodrigo on course for 20 plus, a getting more by the week Paddy, backing him up. Joffy who needs a lot more playing time, then U23 goal machines in Perkins and Joseph. CB first and foremost for me, to replace Coop then centre mid If we do buy ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 28th November) Adams shines in Qatar

Orta still has to close the deal though. Those players may have been attracted to play for March but someone stil has to sell them the vision and of course negotiate a contract. I do love it when Orta is to blame for Bielsa's signings (not there's much to blame there but the narrative gets twisted ...

Re: FA Cup 3rd Round

Gyabi didn't start when Adams was out, he's a quality replacement if JM can ever see it.... Roca is the hardest to replace if MK goes, Paddy replaces Rodrigo, or Joffy, or Perkins or MJF.. We have a pair of very good left wingers, Llorente has the quality but has to play right side. Hjelde has never...
