Re: English Football 2015/16

Shelvey way too anarchic to play in the midfield of a club striving to finish in the top four, agree we should have got more money for him though.

Man City going to run Chelsea out of the Etihad. The Blues will take some time until they get it going.

Re: English Football 2015/16

WH match was frustrating. Feel we should've had a penalty at the end of the 1st half that would've changed things.

Theoretically I like the diamond but we need someone a lot better than Zarate to do it.

Payet looks ridiculous though, what a signing.

Re: English Football 2015/16

I know everyones pet project is to root for Sunderland to get relegated but personally I'd rather WBA goes .... or specifically I just want Pulis to finally pay the price for being so damn uninspiring.

Everton should take advantage of Barkley heater to flog him for 40m to one of the mancs. You just know he's going to do his ankle in by mid September cause that's just the way his career goes.

How long is valencia out? Song + valencia back should make ham pretty strong.

Re: English Football 2015/16

^ Dunno I think 8-12 weeks. We badly need another striker. If you play a diamond ideally both of your strikers will harass the hell out of the the opposition to help you defend from the front. Sakho is a hard worker but Zarate isn't. It'd be fine if he could score like Sturridge but obviously he doesn't.

We definitely have the fullbacks for it. Cresswell + Jenkinson has to be the GOAT budget fullback combo. Making it rain with crosses and cutbacks ... not my favourite way of playing but we should have a lot of ppl in the box to receive them so it's all good

Re: English Football 2015/16

has anyone heard from cashy? he owed me money from last year's IKTS, we exchanged PMs that he didn't have money online and I said no big deal. That was a month ago, I Pmed him a week or so ago to bump the payment and it appears he hasn't signed on 2p2 for a while.

Yeah, was for sure a pen. Schmeichel put his arm out after the ball was touched beyond him. Commentator at the time thought it should have been a red. I'm not so sure, huth was covering I think. Anyways, the backup keeper was a 20yo because shwarzer was sick so that would have been an adventure.

Thought Oxford was invisible and partially responsible for both goals. The overreaction was brought back down to earth today.

Okazaki looks like a great signing, he fits in perfectly playing just behind vardy and runs just as hard. The front 4 of oka, vardy, albrighton, and mahrez is killing it. Pressing high and playing some very nice quick passing counters. Though they defended deeper today compared to at home against Sunderland. And good replacements behind them in kramaric and ulloa for when someone picks up an injury. No way those guys can last all season at this pace.

Seems like one of those spots where a buy-back clause could have been useful.

Pretty sure he is on his holidays. He'll likely square you up when he is back so wouldn't worry about it.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Shelvey for £5m was a fair price. He never managed to hold down a regular spot in Liverpool's starting XI, being restricted to mainly substitute appearances. That didn't mean he couldn't be a good player for Swansea but neither was it strong evidence that he would be. He always appeared to have good attributes in terms of talent, technique, physicality but we so often see players who look like they should be great fail to make it at lesser teams than Swansea. £5m reflects that risk.

It might not look great compared to Man City being able to offload Jack Rodwell for £10m but if Sunderland weren't in for Shelvey that's not really Liverpool's fault.

+1 on cashy.

I too traded money with him a couple of weeks back. No issues what so ever. Wouldn't worry about it :thumb

Eva's ex-

Quote:
This woman ruined my life. Eva would blurt out she had slept with one of the players during heated rows. She said it just to make me feel bad. I donít believe it was true.

She prides herself on being popular among the players. Eva loved the attention.

Eva is a very sexual woman and not many people know the real her. Sheís ruthless and gets whatever and whoever she wants. I was besotted with her and we were planning a family, but she chewed me up and spat me out.

Eva loved sex. It was so important to her. We would have sex every single day.
What a dick.

Re: English Football 2015/16

It didn't take long for the Chelsea PR machine to smear her to try and distract from Mourinho making himself look like a tit, being wrong and then refusing to apologise and move on.

Re: English Football 2015/16

The thing that makes me laugh is the person that made this into something is Mourinho himself. Then during his press conference he doesn't want to talk about it yet he was OK to go on a rant live on TV about it. The man is clearly not all there. I think he is a great manager but when it comes to stuff like this he lets himself down so badly and it's not like this is a once off or anything. Everywhere he has been there's always something.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Yea the whole things a mess because he's wrong. He's never been 100% there, whatever that means, but I don't feel that's a negative because I think he needs to be on edge. I commented last season that if we didn't win the league last season I would be very concerned about his mental health during the Summer. It wasn't an attempt at a joke. I was dead serious.
