  1. Like others, I thought USA had a good chance today - they’ve actually looked really poor, specifically at the back (no surprise when Ream is your starting Cb). I can see Netherlands getting another goal or two before this is over.
  2. Playing Kachunga in front of Kieran Lee in that position is fucking criminal. Of course there are others that you could also put in front of him but Lee is 100x the player that Kachunga is. Good overall performance, still fall into the trap of shithouse teams too often, we had enough chances to win 4 or 5 - 1. If we had an in form (or decent depending on what you think of the current crop) striker then we’d have a lot more points because we are missing some sitters every game!
  3. Belting, he plays in Germany too - told you I know my stuff, Bayern have a serious player on their hands.
  4. Jude Bellingham is already a ridiculously good footballer. Love it when players have that fearlessness of youth as well. @Pablo could you please confirm you are happy with that opinion 😅😉?
  5. Shall I just make up things that you’ve said as well - you’re like a fucking politician. Opinions on how good certain players are. I don’t rate them as highly as you do, you seem to think that by supporting your scouse shite you clearly have a far superior opinion. I’ll finish as I started - this Brazil team is clearly very good, but that starting 11 does not warrant the hype IN MY OPINION. Go and tell Goodison Ways how good your man Richarlison is.
  6. Raphina I’ll give you, albeit he hardly lit up the Prem at Leeds. Richarlison was so good he got a move from Everton to Spurs Fred is shit, Casemiro wouldn’t be let go by Real if he was still one of the best in the world and Silva is not one of the best 5 defenders in the Prem and probably isn’t in the top 15-20 in the world anymore. I’m not arguing that they’re not good players, clearly they are, I just don’t think they deserve the hype that they’ve received with many thinking this World Cup is basically a done deal.
  7. Alright Clive Tyldesley, I bow to your clearly impeccable international football knowledge. Tell me which of those 5 (pretty much half of the starting 11) you think I’ve got fundamentally wrong? I’m not saying they’re a poor team, far from it and I think they’ll go far, but it’s hardly the days of Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Carlos, Cafu etc etc.
  8. That Brazil 11 isn’t all that IMO. Raphina - Leeds Richarlison - second choice behind Kane Fred - shit Casemiro - hardly shone with United and on the wane, hence Real letting him go Silva - great in his day but way past his best Still a quality side, and some proper class in there, but I think they’ve been overhyped- especially without Neymar.
  9. There’s been some cracking headers in this World Cup - feels like a forgotten art seeing a ball whipped in and a towering header
  10. Hoping to be first game back since Lincoln, buzzing for it. 2-0 win Morley and Dapo
  11. Just about to say the same. Germans probably sneak through now, but look poor and are relying on a 90 year old and the German Glenn Murray up top. Spain proved they’re not quite as frightening as they looked when beating Costa Rica. They’re easy on the eye but lightweight and look worse than us at the back (never good seeing a centre mid as one of your starting centre backs). Still France for me from what we’ve seen so far.
  12. How the fuck is Martin Keown considered one of the best options for co-commentary at a World Cup - he’s absolutely clueless. Poland miss a penalty in a game that’s 0-0 - “you just couldn’t write this”. Really? Hardly groundbreaking stuff
  13. Add number 14 from Tunisia to the unknown players who look like world beaters list. Plays in the Hungarian league apparently
  14. In. First away of the season - can’t wait! As much as I’ve loved our away wins, I’ve been seriously envious of the scenes in the away end
  15. And the argies look absolutely toilet
  16. Their number 9 and centre back look like they should be playing in the champions league.
  17. Got to be thinking that JDB and Dapo start up top for the next game, with one of Sheehan or Sadlier at the top of the midfield 3. I’d love to see all 4 start but I don’t think you can unless you go 4 at the back (which he won’t do) or play Sheehan deeper in the midfield 2, but that’s not his best position for me (I’d have MJ and Morley in there).
  18. Any excuse to get away. Says it all when Fleetwood to see your ex player’s team is an attractive option for a Saturday.
  19. I’m watching the Netflix series on it now. It’s just unbelievably bent and has been for decades. I don’t see how it couldn’t be though with the current system, 1 vote per country, which is mainly in the hands of 1 or a small group of men, and is equal no matter whether you’re Angola or Argentina - there is always going to a huge element of “what’s in it for me”.

    We were worse than this during the same period last year. Hopefully we can just keep in touch with the play offs until January and then work some magic once again for a 2nd half of the season charge.

    Another sitter missed. For all the questions about how we play etc. - if we put the ball in the net when we have easy chances then the world would be a better place.
  22. Eddie


    He just doesn’t have composure. The amount of simple chances that he lashes at! He’s got a lot of good attributes but composure is definitely not one
  23. Eddie


    Dion Charles doesn’t score sitters
  24. Eddie


    We used to have such an obvious way of playing out from the back, MJ coming deep, playing out to the LCB or RCB and working it to the wing back to gain ground and start the attack. At the moment, we do the first bit, to Santos and then it goes up to Bakayoko (who is hardly Kevin Davies) with the midfield playing for second balls. I’d be interested to know if it’s deliberate or just lack of confidence
