      Summer Transfer Board / Re: New Goalkeeper Thread?

      Unfortunately I think you're right. Read somewhere earlier, can't remember where or if it's accurate but it said that Klopp has only spent a total of £5mill on keepers throughout his management career to date. Not had chance to see if is accurate but at the same time, it doesn't actually surprise me if it is given how long he stuck with Migs and how many chances he gave him.

      And most of that is probably Karius. Weidenfeller arrived at Dortmund in 2002, long before Klopp, and i believe was the goalie during all of his tenure there prior to coming to Liverpool. No idea who the goalie was at Mainz, but considering how small they were/are it could not have been an expensive one.

      World Cup 2018 / Re: Group D games Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria

      One thing I've learnt tonight is that England supporters still harbour a genuine distaste for Argentina. Lots of gleeful 'givin it large' celebrations around.

      Well, i am not from England, though i did spend 8 great months there many years ago and is when/how i became a Liverpool fan, so you don't have to go across the pond for them to be hated. I hate them just as much on their own side of the Atlantic.  Just dirty, cheating fucks.

      Go English and get Pope 20M would be far better value than Allison. There is only two keepers would pay over odds for one plays for the scum and the over is Oblak. Invest the difference in a class Midfielder's or another attacker still short in that area

      How much did Everton pay for Pickford? he was 2016-2017's darling the way Pope was 207-2018's.

      This is my 9th world cup to watch. Honestly I think the overall skill level of players has dropped. An awful lot of workhorses involved in teams.

      Standard of goal keeping certainly dropped. Players are fitter no doubt but technically inferior

      I actually disagree. I’m seeing teams that are able to play with the big boys in part because most of their players are very technically proficient. I think what you are seeing is a lack of creativity by some managers.

      Funny because last World Cup Ronaldo couldn't get out of his group whilst Messi went all the way to the final. Ronaldo didn't make anything happen out of nothing then, did he.

      This is football, not tennis. A team sport. Messi hardly got the ball, at one point Caballero had more touches than him, and that's easily understandable when you look at that atrocious lineup and sh*t midfield. An ageing Mascherano & a mediocre Enzo Perez vs Rakitic and Modric, it's not even a fair competition.

      Portugal are a much better trained team these days. They have had the same spine for years and the same coach too. Argentina have tried to experiment with many different coaches who keep changing completely the way they play.

      Ronaldo has truly been blessed in this world cup. As soon as he goes outside the box he looks like a pub player. The free kick is really about it. However, if you score a hat trick you get the headlines even if it is against people you play with every day or against every other day. I don't think Ronaldo will be pulling Portugal past any difficult opponents in the knockout phase. He may score though. Before this world cup he had 3 goals in 3 world cups now he has 7 in 4: hardly legendary. Eusebio got 9 at the '66 world cup.

      As for Messi, I thought he and Mascherano have been pulling the strings in the Argentine set up for a while now. Deciding on who plays etc. It would be interesting to know if the rumours are true. In an era of unprecedented investment these two players (Ronaldo and Messi) are providing a return on investment. Their club teams are set up to maximise their potential in terms of economic return. No wonder when they get to international level they feel impoverished. I think in this world cup the differnec betweent hem is Ronaldo smells is chance to pull ahead of Messi in the Balon D'Or, his last chance and he is desperate. But 10 Ballon D'Ors between them is that 'unbelievable' or a sign of the times?

      Totally agree, teams with very regimented systems with little creativity playing safety first football
