    He will replace Shinji. Shinji has been playing well and even scoring at the moment and good for him, but lets be real, KI is a class above him. Okazaki will be reduced to cameos off the bench.
  2. Liverpool (H) Match Thread

    I have not criticised Shakey until now but I wonder if Pearson needs an assistant at OH?
  3. Will Islam Slimani finally adapt?

    If he plays, he'll score.
  4. Boycott FIFA....FIFA 18 that is

    What happened to the traditional old fashioned protest? I just posted them a turd in a jiffy bag, like any normal person. Boycott FIFA 18? Weirdo.
  5. The OH Leuven Thread

    I think Steve Bull runs a dry cleaners in Ostend.
  6. The OH Leuven Thread

    Really? Now there's a man with charisma by the lorry load. Would love to meet him personally. Probably best not to upset him though. Back OT, I think it's great to see that NP seems to have made his peace with the owners and the cub (LCFC that is). I wish him all the best. Would love to hear from some OH fans on here.
  7. The OH Leuven Thread

    Excellent rant! I agree wholeheartedly.
  8. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    I predict they'll take 95 days... til Jamuary 1st. Not that I'm counting or anything.
  9. I agree. We're a match for anyone when we go for it.
  10. Demarai Gray

    I hate the Mirror. First Silva now this. Just a bunch of shit kickers spewing pondwank.
  11. Okazaki = Class

    He rarely scores.
  12. Okazaki = Class

    I have been critical of Shinji so I will praise him when it's due, he certainly added fresh impetus on Tuesday but don't forget we were effectively playing with 10 men (sorry Leo), the introduction of Shinji evened it out a bit and his energy and harrying was exactly what we needed. I think he has improved and we do seem to play better with him in the team, but lets not get carried away. I know that the rule on kneejerk FT is that any player can only be judged on their last game but KI, when he finally gets going, will be a big upgrade in terms of quality.
  13. One of the first things CS said when taking over from Ranieri was that 'we are a much better team when we're on the front foot.' Exactly what I wanted to hear. I hope he hasn't stepped back from that.

    With all the complaints about 4-4-2, you'd think we were the only club that still employs it. I thought I'd do a little digging and see what are the premier leagues most popular formations. The only data I could find was 3 years old but interesting all the same. The most popular formation is 4-2-3-1 (220 times) and 4-4-2 (or 4-4-1-1) was easily the second most popular (176 times). 3-5-2 was nowhere (10 times). So in many cases we should be matching up like for like so why do we always get overrun in midfield? Perhaps, because two of the 4 are wingers rather than wide mids. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2015/mar/13/louis-van-gaal-united-tinker-table-premier-league
