He just cannot react to a game.
Poch will be after a job soon. Got to be better than Southgate. I don't feel the need to give him credit either. We should have won the Euros and at least made the World Cup final. Poor decisions cost us.

Why? 35 mil for a 30 year old with a year left on his contract, that's pretty tidy business. Klopp already has replacements.

Nothing's guaranteed and Mane's been a beast and for me has been our most consistent player this season. I'd have liked to have kept him. Plus - "replacements". Not sure - I'd be playing Mane over Diaz, but when Diaz is playing Mane's great through the middle too. And the new boy is going to take time to settle in - and there's no guarantees.

Ideally, he blows Mane out of the water. But we'll see.

I like the fact that we're bringing in younger players - I think we need it. But I'd like overlap too.

It's all so depressingly compromised.


I was going to say bent - and I don't rule that out. But even if not bent, compromised it certainly is. Unconscious bias and group power mean the idea of clubs competing against each other is no longer the reality - it's clubs vs consortiums.

The concept of real "sport" is rapidly dying. It's being replaced with a highly seductive entertainment product with the false veneer of genuine, principled, competition - designed to maximise returns for shareholders.

Rumours are you'll be losing Salah as well @Scouse, Liverpool (rightly so) refusing his 400k(!) a week wage demands.
