  1. Anyone wanting to join a FIFA 20 league, please sign up here - https://forms.gle/2deQxLsiumhFBStj8 Fixtures, results and tables will all be handled by me, more details will be sent out once we have enough signed up.
  2. Justin starts in the league now for me and Chilwell gets his chance in the Cup v Chelsea
  3. It's time we put all this "nice" football on the back burner and got back to winning games the old fashioned way by wanting it more than Villa do. You saw Man City pass the ball for fun yesterday but Utd clearly wanted it more and thoroughly deserved the win, we have to do that same. No point completing 500 passes and having 75% possession if Villa out fight us.
  4. Despite our rocky form, only Liverpool and Man City have scored more goals than us in the last 10 games . The problem is, only Aston Villa, Norwich, Burnley and Bournemouth have conceeded more, so i'd argue that our problems are at the back rather than going forward. Goals Scored Man City 26 Liverpool 24 Leicester 17 Goals Conceeded Aston Villa 23 Burnley 20 Norwich 17 Bournemouth 17 Leicester 15
  5. Why would Rodgers be lining up a replacement when hes already said more than once that no one is leaving? Mind boggling
  6. ^^^^^^ Direct quote from Rodgers!!
  7. Seeing us go on a winning streak is liking watching a child blow up a balloon. Each breath is equal to a win and the more we win the bigger the balloon gets, but, the bigger the balloon gets the louder the bang when the winning runs ends and the bigger the over reaction.
  8. I don't think we have really been tested yet regarding scheduling, that will come between the Man City game and New Year. We don't play mid week like the other "big 6" do so no reason why this shouldnt be as close to full strength as possible and then field a similar side against Man City. If this was a mid week Premier League game we wouldn't be resting too many so why do it for the Cup, we want to win it after all. My team would be: Ward - Has played every cup game so far so would be unfair to drop him now Justin - Performed well every time he has played so he gets another game Evans - Need to maintain defensive solidity and consistency so he plays Soyuncu - See Evans Chilwell - Hes a young, fit lad, no need to rest him Ndidi - Never seems to tire and will be crucial to winning the ball back and breaking up attacks Praet - Needs more game time and only played 45 mins at the weekend Maddison - I would have said Tielemans but he looks exhausted towards the end of games just lately, would sub him on for Maddison after 60 mins Barnes - Not played a massive amount recetntly due to change in formation so should be raring to go Perez - See Barnes Vardy - Conserves energy so well so should have plenty on the tank Changes from our best XI - 3
  9. M key malfunctioned at the wrong time
  10. I disagree with that. Firmino - Last 10 games,1 goal and 1 assist Origi - Last 10 games, 2 goals and 0 assists Sane - Last 10 games, 5 goals and 5 asissts Salah - Last 10 games, 4 goals and 3 assists Shaqiri - 1 goal all season Vardy - Last 10 games, 13 goals and 3 assists Maddison - Last 10 games, 5 goals and 3 assists Perez - Last 10 games, 4 goals and 3 assists Barnes - Last 10 games, 0 goals and 5 assists Add to that Iheanacho just finding form, I would argue our strike force is more potent. Makes no difference what they did last season, its all about what they are doing now and I would back us to win more games than Liverpool on current form.
  11. Completely agree, January is for strengthening the squad or selling/loaning out players who are out of favour or need game time. Not a chance we are going to weaken the team or unsettle the side by selling one of our 1st xi!
  12. The most points gained by a side finishing 5th in the last 7 seasons is 75, with the average being 70. So lets say worse case scenario we need to get 76. So we are exactly half way there and need a further 38 points. So 12 wins and 2 draws or 13 wins to be safe from the remaining 22 games. We are on course for 90.25 points (so 90) and the best a 3rd place side has managed in 7 years is 82 (average 76) so that gives us 8 points to play with for 2nd place.
  13. Having seen what Brendan Rodgers can do with young talented players or players once good but now lacking in confidence (see Demarai Gray and Kelechi Iheanacho) those people who are writing Rodriguez off as "had one decent world cup and then flopped" have seriously misjudged Rodgers as a coach.
