I’ll say this, if Amy Jo Johnson hasn’t been rightfully resting on her laurels for the past 20 years, I’ll be fuming. As for the footy, I haven’t bothered with any friendlies, but I’ll be able to tell Sunday evening (not happy with when we’re playing either tbh) whether I can be arsed with Liverpool dominating most of me waking thoughts over the next 9 months. On my favourite signing of the summer, Clyne: I’d love nothing more than for him to be Steve Finnanish. I’ll be worried if he’s looking too spectacular too early rather than just being a solid hand like when Glen Johnson first came in and was no word of a lie, the best player in the world in the month of August 2009. Reply Mikko Vaniala on 4 August 2015 at 8:13 am On Lallana and Ibe: there is value in challenging the opposition one-on-one, especially in friendlies, but Ibe loses the ball 5 times where Lallana loses it once. If we are going to play the pressing game, no team can press the ball away 1000 times per game. There is value in keeping the ball on your team. Reply paul on 4 August 2015 at 12:37 pm Defenders aren’t worried by players stopping and passing back, but they shit themselves when someone runs directly at them, as it may lead to a penalty or a free kick in a dangerous area. Ibe merely needs to move a little more when he’s bursting forward, so he doesn’t end up running into three players. Reply Tom C on 4 August 2015 at 10:01 am On Can and his turning round like an ocean liner (was reassuring to hear you notice as I had just left a comment on the pink to this effect;), I reckon he needs to lay off the upper body weights as he looks top heavy. I am not sure what the conditioning staff are doing with him but it looks as though they are trying to get him to play rugby rather than football. To my (uninformed) mind, I would think he should put the weights to one side and just spend his time running around the track to shed some kilos and get his fitness up. Reply Derek on 4 August 2015 at 10:41 pm That’s the worry with Can, First time I saw him I posted something in here similar, Seems to have everything else but that lack of nip in the turn (to put it lightly) means he will struggle in some of the more Hurley burly type of Prem games but the Europa may offer him a decent stage to shine. Reply Padraig on 4 August 2015 at 3:55 pm The discussion on this pod surrounding Lovren was one of complete resignation. Neil in particular was clearly holding back his true opinion – that his selection at the expense of Sakho at Stoke and beyond would be a fucking disgrace. I don’t know why you all just won’t say it. Tell me this lads (and lady) – who’d you rather in the team, Lovren or Moreno? Its Alberto for me. So why doesn’t Brendan, as its clear he absolutely despises Sakho for being superior to Lovren, not play Clyne, Skrtel, Gomes and Moreno? Why does Lovren absolutely have to start when it is clear there is at the very least one better option, and when it is possible there are four, to partner Skrtel? (Sakho, Toure, Ilori and Moreno) Personally, I’d be going Clyne and Sakho as guaranteed starters then try and develop Ilori and Moreno. If either are disasters, replace them with Gomes. Were going to concede plenty anyway so lets go back to square one. But Rodgers has just given a fat new contract to Skrtel and spent £20m on Lovren so he has to have them as his first choice CB pairing. It’ll be a major reason he gets the sack. Reply Lucky Desperado on 6 August 2015 at 7:10 pm Sakho not Lovren, Lovren bench, Sakho pitch, why do so many people underate Sakho? Incidentally talking to a friend, he mentioned that baldy Head Gary Mac, even trotted out the same ol cliches about Sakho as a pundit. He is now of course Assist Mgr, no! Gary, only thing problematic is injury record, maybe he’s lazy in training. Echo poll 93- 7% in favour of Sakho, can’t all be wrong. Better prove you deserve the shirt ahead of such talent Dejan. Maybe Brendan feels a kindred spirit, as 2 given a 2nd chance. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
