    Lionel Messi

    The team is a busted flush, so it's hard to see if Messi still has something special to offer. He was shit tonight and against Liverpool last year. My feeling is his time has been and gone..

    Kalidou Koulibaly

    Agree in part but the club obviously disagree with you as they have an analytics team. but data can help to offer a different perspective. Our eyes tell us scoring loads of goals but data says only as much as can be expected given the chances we create. That does not win you titles and as we...

    Kalidou Koulibaly

    We have actually conceded less than expected goals would indicate. Similar to Liverpool. In attack we are only in line with expected goals for the season. Liverpool are plus 9 above their expected goals = more clinical. Don't know if there is a stat for unexpected goals ie Worldies...

    Jadon Sancho

    Sancho, Greenwood, Rasford and Martial is a potent front line. Still not convinced by Pogba but Bruno (the cheating fkr) is the real deal. Gk a d defense look like an issue but conceded the 3rd least amount of goals. This years top 4 should be a real scrap if this signing takes place. Expect the...

    New striker needed

    Our expected goals was broadly in line with what we got (102 v 102.2). That does not win titles. Liverpool got 9 more goals than expected for their season. That is the difference...

    Official Net Spend 2020 Transfer Window

    I appreciate the Maths looks a bit squiffy because of add ons but net spend is way more complicated than ins and outs. 1. the wage bill is a major factor to balance 2. total annual amortisation costs. Silva, Bravo and Sane off the wage bill along with other leavers. Some big earners in...

    Are you a rock snob?

    I don't think it is your choice in music that makes one a snob. As this thread shows, It is your attitude to other people's choices that define one as a snob. You are fine with regard the later point.

    Are you a rock snob?

    Growing up in Liverpool in the late seventies I would sometimes go to Probe Records. At the time one guy who served was a manic fruitloop. He was a complete rock snob. I made the mistake of taking a Rush album to the desk to purchase. He looked at me and said 'you look just as shit as the shit...
