    Söyüncü Signs

    Fantastic signing and all but confirmes we’re going 3-5-2 next season which is great. With this lad, Evans and Maguire we have one of the best defences in the league, Chilwell and Perrira as Wing backs. Add Ndidi, Silva and Morrison in midfield and Vardy and Ihenacho up front and it’s looking very good indeed.

    When do we start to get worried?

    I honestly don’t mind our transfer business so far but no way are we done, With that said I expect a CB more than a winger because it’s obvious to me that next season were playing narrower and likely to go to 5 at the back, Maddison cannot play as part of a midfield two and I doubt we’ll only play Vardy up front with him behind. Perrrira and Chilwell and natural wing backs and we have more CM’s than most teams will ever need. I have us down like this Kasper Evans New CB Maguire Perriera Chilwell Silva Ndidi Maddison Ihenacho Vardy With Diabate, Gray, Okazaki, Albrighton etc and whoever remains from our huge squad who remains in backup

    Danny Ward - 12 Million

    Where the hell has this £12m talk come from? All reputable source say £10m and most of them say it includes any possible bonuses Good signing if you ask me and good competition for Kasper. Also most Liverpool fans expected him to push for the first team before Allison signed

    James Maddison

    Apart from our investigation regarding the 13/14 season, what is people’s obsession with FFP? I agree that we’ll see a lot of outgoings this summer but that’s mainly due to having a bloated squad. We’ve spent £50m this summer not £200m! We’re a top half premier league team with wealthy owners who were in the CL QF the season before last and made record profit last year! Everton had a net spend of over £80m last season and they’re ok. Our net spend won’t be anywhere near that with our outgoings but it wouldn’t matter if it was

    Aleksandar Dragovic

    I would have liked to keep Dragovic but let’s be honest we’ll be playing with 4 at the back again next season and Maguire and Evans are the first choice CB partnership. We aren’t going to spend £15m on a back up We do need one more as a back up but it won’t be Drago or anyone close to that price tag
  8. I really like this to be honest, If we’d have just had plain black with white stripes, most people would complain it was boring and unimaginative

    Champions League 2017/18

    Will fully be supporting Liverpool tonight. Can’t understand people who would rather see Ramos, Ronaldo and Marcelo lift the trophy for the fourth time in five years over Milner, Robertson and Salah.

    New season ticket/ card ?

    Mines looking quite frayed but I’ll treasure it as in the three years this one has lasted we’ve won the league and got to the QF of the Champions League A piece of the greatest period in this clubs history

    The "do they mean us?" thread

    Yep and I picked up the JJB Yellow away shirt that day for £5 from the club shop! Anybody that moans about recent performances needs to think back to this time for perspective of how far we’ve come

    Should we get rid of the "old guard"

    I think people on here and sat around me have been ridiculously harsh on Morgan on here but the past few weeks have been clear that his legs have gone. He actually played quite well the other night but everything was a bit last ditch and you just thought he was an accident waiting to happen. I fully expect Simpson and Morgan to be upgraded this summer to go with Fuchs and Huth leaving so our entire back 4 from the title win will be gone. I have a feeling Okazaki might also leave along with Mahrez which would mean in August only Vardy, Albrighton and Schmeichel would be left from that team It was inevitable but it would be the end of an era
  14. After Swansea last season I honestly thought we were gone. Was it 7 league games without a goal. This season has been the calmest in the last 7 years for sure

    Summer 2018 Transfer Kitty

    I believe this will be one of the biggest summers of change in my memory, Puel will want to bring in his own players and twinned with the fact that Mahrez will definitely have left and Ndidi and Maguire are quite possible (not to mention Musa, Slimani, Ulloa, Kaspustka etc) he could be looking at £200m to spend just from incoming fees! Add to this that the likes of Simpson, Morgan and Fuchs are almost certainly going to be upgraded and the last remnants of the title winning side will be gone. Puel for whatever reason doesn’t seem to fancy Iborra or Silva that much. The jury’s still out on Nacho and that’s basically a whole new side. In fact if I had to put money on which of our first team players will more than likely be here on the first day of next season it’d be Vardy, Albrighton, Okazaki, James, Schmeichel and Chilwell. The rest you could argue have a decent chance they’ll either be forceably moved on or sold for big money

    Ticket arrangements for Chelsea FA game (not ideal)

    Gutted! I fly to China that evening so will be travelling to Heathrow listening to it rather than being at the game, if itd been Friday, Saturday or Sunday lunch I could have made it

    tickets for Sheffield

    Why is this on a Friday night?? Surely if they don't want a clash with the Tigers then Sunday afternoon would be better? Thanks to EMT another game I'll have to leave early

    Peterborough Travel and Pubs

    I'm getting the trusted X4 Bus from Kettering to Peterborough. Setting off at 9.45 and getting in around 11am, Shouldn't be too bad on the way there but nearly 90mins on a bus after a day on the booze will not be great!!

    Leaving before full-time last night.

    I never ever leave early even if we’re 4-0 down but tomorrow I have to, I cannot drive currently and my last train home is at 9.58 (thank you EMT) so there is no way I’d make it if i stayed until the end. Im not a plastic because a)they do not have season tickets b) they’d probably sit at home watching the game on Sky this time of year id see more of the game and be more comfortable if I stayed at home but I’m going to the game because there is no substitute

    Albrighton. Underrated?

    If Sanchez, Hazard or Pogba does that touch to Gray yesterday we’d be hearing about it for weeks. He’s really playing excellently under Puel
  21. This will defnitely be on tv no matter which one it is .There’s four tv ties minimum; In order of likelihood Liverpool v Everton Brighton v Palace Our game Forest v Arsenal Norwich v Chelsea Then United/City/Spurs
  22. Staffs Fox


    I really wanted him at the club and was ecstatic when we got him but I have to admit he looks woefully short on quality from what he’s done in a City shirt He doesn't seem suited to the style of play, his touch is awful and he doesn’t even look close to getting any chances I honestly think he’s 4th choice now and maybe even 5th if Puel continues to play Mahrez centrally Hope I’m Wrong but maybe a loan in Jan might be best for him because unfortunately we can’t afford to give him to required game time to get up to speed

    England squad

    This is a depressing time to be an England fan! This is literally our strongest line up against Brazil and Germany!! Butland Stones Jones Maguire Walker Young Dier Livermore Rashford Abraham Vardy

    Are We Now Established?

    There is literally nothing such thing, Look at Villa, you couldn’t get more so-called ‘established’ they’re now playing Rotherham. Newcastle have been relegated twice in the last 10 years. No matter how well you’ve done you’re only 12 months from potential relegation, I’m available for motivational speaking if needed!
