This would be a great signing for us. Yes I'm biased, but this kid has only scratched the surface of how good he's going to be and he's already been good enough to feature for Dortmund quite often. Believe he's very position flexible as well. If I'm not mistaken he's as a fullback and as a midfielder/winger. He would provide us cover in a few positions and while not a guaranteed starter, he'd be one that might see some time this year but definitely feature in the future.
You are bias, BUT... I would have to agree with everything you wrote
Can't wait for this one, thinking we should bury them. Personally, I'd go with this:
Migs Clyne Matip Lovren Klavan Can Milner Mane Firmino Coutinho Origi
If Can isn't fit then sub Stewart or Wijnaldum in and if Origi isn't fit then sub Studge for him. Things seem a bit tense and shaky at the moment between Klopp and some of the players, a roaring win here would do us a lot of good.
Milner is no left back and Moreno hardly is one either. Meanwhile, Lovren and Matip played really well the other day (albeit against weak opposition) and I think we should try to let their partnership flourish. Klavan has played really well as a left-sided CB though so I think he should not be overlooked, he also has experience as an LB, so why not put him out there and try to solidify things.
Hendo and Wijnaldum have both disappointed severely for me so far. They struggle to add any unique value and any EPL CM could walk in there and do the same job they do, while Milner has outshined both of them even from a relatively unfamiliar position. Let him have his go in the center of the pitch like he wanted when he came in.
Extremely unlikely that this lineup will happen though unfortunately.
you a pundit or something? nailed it bang pon de head. true dat
Too many football games in the Premier League we often see the result 'decided' by a referee's interpretation of the rules. I think this is only going to add to it.
You will see blatant pulls 'not seen' by the officials in one half and less serious offences getting punished in the next. Not a fan of the new rule.
I think that's the biggest problem in football right now and the source of the inconsistency of officiating. The rules should be interpreted for them, or written in a manner that leaves no room for interpretation whatsoever. That way every referee is singing from the same hymsheet and players know what they can, and can't get away with.
It seems just so wrong we are not in this again. Cant wait to watch the big games again nothing quite like them who did UTD get . City must be in with a chance now with a manager who knows how to win the competition and a blank cheque book.
