A prime Jamie Vardy who was struggling to adapt to professional football and had scored 5 Football League goals by that point.

 

Claude Puel leaving out Jamie Vardy to experiment with Demarai Gray up front was several times the worst call regarding Vardy in the last 7 years.

It's a bit of a laugh and a fun photo let's not have another installment of the "was Puel completely shite debate" plenty of that going off in other threads.

And we beat Leicester 2-1 at Anfield. Make sure you include yourselves in this list - you've got a Premier League trophy in the cabinet, and are on our heels 100% on merit rather either sets of those Mancunians.

 

We were discussing you lads on our own forum today, and honestly can't help but speak with admiration. Team built the right way, overcame such tragedy with the helicopter crash, and fans who prefer to spend their energy supporting their own side as opposed to cryarsing about rivals. We'd be thrilled to have ye all finish second behind us this year! ;)

We will beat you on GD:scarf:

Btw, if I'm not mistaken, the guy to Vardy's left is Ben Marshall.

Now there's a career gone down the drains.

I couldn't remember his last name for the life of me for a bit. I knew it was Ben, but Marshall escaped me. Kept cycling between Mee and Chillwell in my head. 

Yeah... Forgotten man, let alone career.

I’m sure we’d all be very happy with Top 4 this season, and personally I don’t think we’re likely to catch Liverpool (although I am starting to believe a little). 

 

I also think that finishing second and keeping up some great form for the rest of the season is imperative. 

 

Champions League football is a fantastic achievement, but if we really want to turn players heads, we need to finish 2nd. In the summer, when we’re after one or two top players, it could have a massive impact. As well as keeping the players we have now.

When will Steve Bruce get any credit, if Rafa had them in the top 10 we'd never hear the end of how brilliant he is. Yes the bottom half of the league is terrible but he still has to win. 

agreed, said it the other day when they beat sheff u. they are now level on points with sheff u, after having probably pretty similar pre season expectations. yet wilder is getting shouts for manager of the year and bruce is still just getting laughed at.

Because Wilder is producing results with (some) players he had in League One. Newcastle have been in this league 3 years now and they're still turgid. Newcastle should be above Sheffield United. 

 

I agree re: Steve Bruce though, he deserves credit so far.

The Athletic saying Liverpool want a pre season friendly in China, July 2020. 

 

Klopp the hypocrite again

Klopp is keen to ensure that his squad are based in Europe for most of the pre-season programme and owners Fenway Sports Group will give him what he wants.

I had some free copies which I used to line the bottom of puppies whelping box for them to crap on. 

 

Which seems like the best use for The Sun

This. Like a spoiled, petulant child.  I don't care what anyone says, given the money he's spent, the clubs he's been at and the players he's had at his disposal he's under achieved since he's left Barcelona.

The money spent; on a european level he's definitely under achieved; 3 semi-finals in the CL with Bayern, last-16 and quarter finals with Man City. Whilst the record at bayern at least may be good, the money he spends and the level he aims to be at, it isn't good enough. 

 

Domestically however, he's been incredible and his team's do dominate the country

Is this guy for real? Comments like this make him look like an out of his depth fraud https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50707809

"That is the level we face against Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus. They are the teams we have to face and the reality is maybe we are not able now to compete with them.

 

I'm a bit annoyed we didn't get a name check amongst that lot. :D
