I wonder how many months it'll take Rodgers to figure out Henderson/Miller as a midfield two doesn't work.

Agreed, not looking too good at the moment. I think Can should and will start v Arsenal, maybe start all three actually.

Back five

Hendo - Can - Milner
Coutinho - Benteke - Firminho/Ibe

I wouldn't hate that, tbh, I really like Milner but am not sure he should necessarily start every week.

Bolt is actually a small fave. Quite fancy the Gatlin side, been running 9.7's all season.

Re: English Football 2015-16

If Bolt gets a good start and doesn't fault, he'll smoke him.

Bolt GOAT.

You telling us you have a masters is not really dishing it out, unless you consider smearing your face with your own feces as some kind of gotcha.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Hendo has a knock. He's like 50/50 to play.

Prolly Hendo-Milner. Hendo-Can is possible. Or Can-Milner. There's a tautology.

There is zero chance that Milner doesn't start.

Milner is better and more crucial to the side than can

Re: English Football 2015-16

this thread has more of a "banter" thing, i.e., fat blokes on chairs typing with 2 fingers but man, elrazor is on a roll of pouncey dunning-kruger bigging-self-up

brah, stahp

no one is naming the 1st born xG or whoscored, what flaws these "bright shapes" have is obvious to anyone who's had a cursory look at the methodology (only counts actual shots instead of dangerous situations like crosses or 1v1 dribbles, etc) and it is yet basically inarguable that such "bright shapes" is superior to sorting by raw data like # of shots or pure eyetest

in other news, Im doing fairly pish in F-EPL but Tall Paul is even more pish so I'm ahead by 11.
