Currently 'stranded' in Mallorca due to this thomas cook situation.

Had some time to watch the game and I'm starting to wonder how the club thought letting Lukaku leave without a true replacement would work? Quite worrying that we put so much trust into some younger lads who clearly aren't there yet.

After watching Napoli this weekend I can't help but feel Llorente on a free could have been a good stop-gap as he was on a free.

Let's hope the lads go out there against Arsenal and prove they're good enough, but I'm not feeling confident. Hopefully our flight home gets delayed for a week or two 🤣.

Good read and fair points made.

I'd like to commend Danny Pughnited whose posts further down the page really hit the nail on the head.

A few stats for you :

2 wins in last 11 Premier League games.

Club record 7 Premier League games without an away win.

Last away clean sheet in February.

Scored more than 1 goal just once in last 13 matches.

. now, are they stats of Manchester United or Watford?

They are, in fact, Manchester United.

Arsenal, Newcastle, Liverpool and Norwich up next. Would you bet on us being above 16th/ 17th after these next four games? I wouldn't.

The way things have gone I wouldn’t be shocked to see us win against arsenal and Liverpool to be honest. We tend to do okay against teams that attack us.
It’s a young squad and there will be inconsistencies, but hopefully we get Pogba and martial back in there and see where we end up.

No reason we can’t beat arsenal, in fact from the list the only game I’m really worried about is Liverpool because they’re looking very impressive.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:19:43
We will kose against Arsenal and Liverpool if qe go with the same line up as last game.

If we manage to get Martial, Pogba and Shaw back for those games then we might just nick a point or win from one of them games.

I can see us beating the other teams you mentuoned.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:30:21
If Norwich play like they did against City they’ll turn us over. Arsenal will have too much and Liverpool will have far too much. Newcastle ‘should’ be 3 points, but as a betting man I don’t fancy it.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:32:56
Arsenal’s back 4 and midfield aren’t great. They’ve a world class striker in auba but I don’t look at them and think they’re miles better than us.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:59:42
Fresh, but what about the Norwich who turned up at Burnley at the weekend? Not easy to predict football anymore. Unfortunately we are at a stage where we have to take every game as it comes. But i see no reason why we can’t beat arsenal, their biggest strength is their attack, I’d say ours at the minute is our defence.

If we lose to Arsenal, I'll do everyone a favour on here, and not post for the rest of the season.

{Ed025's Note - "come on arsenal"....only joking noucamp, your a good poster mate and would be a big loss to these pages imo..

If we play better against teams that attack then let teams have the ball and attack on the counter.

{Ed025's Note - if you let city or liverpool have the ball then they will destroy you bolger mate..

It's ok, Ed025, I'm pretty confident of a result. They'll be stuck with me for a while longer yet 😁.

Mort that will be a big shame if you do depart. However I can understand where you're coming from.

{Ed025's Note - i dont scooby, when the going gets tough the tough get going and all that, you fight your corner and i would expect nothing less from mort to be honest who has seen this all before and always makes his point well..

Mort. The knee jerk reactions will continue throughout the season.
But I'm excited to watch our young talents play every game.

Ed001 have you seen or heard anything about Hannibal Mejbri the kid we signed from Monaco? Supposedly he's with our 23s tonight. Now granted a few will likely be involved against Rochdale. Just wondering if you have any info on him?


Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen pictures of him. I was told, a year or so ago (I think) when he was at Monaco that this was the best French youngster since Mbappe. It might have even been longer than that thinking about it, a lot longer. Apparently he is a special talent though I have not seen anything of him playing. Funnily enough one of the people who raved about him now works in United's scouting dept, so it is probably no surprise you signed him. One of the things clubs like about him is his family are apparently a very good influence on him. A bit like Pulisic, they are seen as a plus and will help him keep his feet on the ground and working even if he hits the big time early.}

23 Sep 2019 17:37:03
That sounds very positive Ed, it’s good to know there’s potentially been a lot of effort going in to finding out about the player, as I know at that age a lot of parents can be disruptive to young players careers.

Thanks for the info.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. You look to have a good one on your hands there.}

23 Sep 2019 17:57:51
Hope so Ed, need some positives for sure!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly one of them. He did reject Liverpool in the past as well, so there is something else for you.}

23 Sep 2019 18:35:22
Let’s hope he can stay away from injury and develop nicely then Ed! Obviously there’s been a lot of talk over an overhaul of the academy, I think that talk started when Van Gaal was here. Has that finally started to take place? Because I do think in 3/ 4 years time we could have a very good squad if the likes of garner, greenwood, Gomes, mejbri develop into the players we hope?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it has begun but it seemed to have stalled. Though it did go a long way towards fixing a lot of the problems, there are still some things left to do. No idea why it was not finished, it might simply be the club assessing the situation and looking around at other examples to decide on the next step.}

23 Sep 2019 19:02:28
I could see us try the Ajax method, in the sense of every year try and make say 2-3 additions to the first team via the market and adding in another couple of youngsters to the squad. Genuinely think we have quite a few talents coming through, which could be a sign of why for example we didn’t replace Lukaku or Sanchez due to the faith in greenwood etc.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Sep 2019 09:19:52
Enjoyed reading your views on the lad, Ed001. Didn't know much about him at all. Cheers for asking the question, Caolan.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is difficult to keep track of all these kids, no wonder you don't know much about him. I am quite sure we will all know all about him within about 3 years or so though.}

23 Sep 2019 16:47:18
Just to give you guys hope, Klopp took over LFC in Oct 2015 after Brendon managed just ( you guessed it) 8pts by match week 6.

So a top modern thinking manager ( no dinosaurs) .

A coherent recruitment strategy.

Players who work for the team .

With in 4yrs 4 European finals (two wins ) and the 3rd highest points total in English top tier football history.

So it can be done.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:14:01
Spot on mate. Only difference is that klopp had a much bigger reputation than ole so he got a lot more breathing space to make changes.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 18:35:06
I did say top manager not the former Cardiff, molde? manager. Sorry but the spoilt brats won't respect that cv.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 19:06:54
Hopefully he gets a chance to we see whether or not he can be a top level coach is what I mean (don’t think anyone could produce consistent good results with this squad) but not enough fans will show him the patience because he’s not managed any other top club is what I mean mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 20:24:01
What do you get for the 3rd highest total in history?

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 20:52:14

But I enjoyed the ride👍.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2019 21:07:03
True enough Caolan, but the support from fsg has been immense.

Klopps first match included migs, clyne, skrtle, Moreno, sarko and Origi as starters.
