      Had a look at 87/88 team - a great team that continued to have a couple more successful seasons (although obviously weight of Hillsborough and Kenny's departure did affect things in early 1991.

      Grobbelaar - 31
      Nicol - 27
      Hansen - 33
      Gillespie - 28
      Spackman - 27
      Johnston - 28
      Whelan - 27
      McMahon - 27
      Houghton - 26
      Beardsley - 27
      Barnes - 24
      Aldridge -29


      This team liked the bevvy a lot too. so were nowhere near the athletes of todays players. ;D

      Liverpool didn't need to resume football post lockdown.  Man City can now only reach a maximum of 81 points.  Liverpool had 82 points on the 7th March.

      Could be interesting if they drop any more points as we may end up having 'technically' won the league some time in February.

      I mean it's probably a bit to early to start making extravagant claims about Jones but he could be a genuine box to box top class midfielder in the making. I'm sure the Boss will manage him in the right way. One things for sure Jones doesn't lack confidence, confidence of youth maybe.

      Both him and Harvey Elliott exude confidence in themselves some people probably consider it arrogance, but if you don't have that then it must be very hard to get yourself above the rest in these ultra competitive academies and that.

      If he can find the goal at the age of 19 in Premier League games and in Merseyside derbies then he's a prospect.  He couldn't wish for a better football education than he's getting at the moment and he's got a great opportunity to become a part of our next decade.

      Big fan of the Spaghetti Western music and this composer.  Worked on over 500 films!

      Ennio Morricone, the Italian composer whose credits include the "spaghetti" Westerns that made Clint Eastwood a star, has died in Rome aged 91.

      According to Italian news agency Ansa, he died in hospital having fractured his femur in a fall some days ago.

      The prolific composer also wrote music for Once Upon a Time in America, The Untouchables and Cinema Paradiso.

      Having received an honorary Oscar in 2007, he went on to win one in 2016 for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

      Morricone, who was simply known as "Maestro" in his home town of Rome, scored more than 500 films over seven decades.

      Yet he remains best known for the haunting melodies he wrote for the trilogy of 1960s westerns Sergio Leone made with the then little-known Eastwood.

      A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly centred around Eastwood's taciturn gunslinger, known as "The Man With No Name".

      Leone called the composer's contributions "indispensable" and would have him write the score before shooting so he could design his shots around Morricone's contributions.

      Eastwood went on to direct Westerns himself, including the Oscar-winning Unforgiven, but Morricone did not write music for them out of loyalty to Leone.

      In a 2014 interview with the BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz he expressed regret for his decision, admitting he had missed out on "a great opportunity".

      General Football Forum / Scottish PL season to start on 2nd August
      « Last post by JD on Yesterday at 09:29:35 am »
      I'm not all up to date with the ins and outs of Scottish football but obviously they ended their season early, but will be starting the next one in a few weeks - 2nd August in fact.

      They have not scheduled a winter break - sensible I would have thought just in case they have one enforced.

      Still don't understand the top leagues who didn't complete their season (can understand clubs lower down the pyramid).  Especially when they are starting a new one under the same restrictions they could have correctly ended the last one.

      And there is a place in midfield up for grabs. The Boss has 2/3 goes to get in that driving attacking force from mid, almost yer could say since Coutinho left. Nabby, Ox, even Shaq...while he has had some joy none of them have really cemented their place.

      The Boss has juggled the midfield pack brilliantly this season but it's an evolving situation.

      No it doesn’t, but neither does not signing players.

      At some point we will need to add some more quality. I get why we won’t this summer, but then that starts to put us against the wall a bit as teams will assume after two years of no real spending we will need to buy and that will make the prices go up and the negotiations get tougher.




      We need to stop playing Origi so much, give some of the youngsters a go up front, see if they can make the step up in the way Jones and Williams etc have. In fact could Elliott be played up top or is he more midfield?

      hahaha :laugh: Come on, Origi not a world-beater, but I'll take the historic goals and those against Everton all day  ;D

      Oh he's a legend, always will be for those goals he scored, but he is a bang average forward, as seen yesterday, we really need to upgrade and honestly Brewster can't be worse, in fact given a run of games I think he could be quite good for us.

      Always the same with these little teams. Raise their game to play the Champions but can’t replicate it against the Southampton’s  of this world 😂

      In fairness they absolutely blasted Southampton, just couldn't get through the defence, story of their season in many ways.

      On a serious note I really don't see them winning the CL with their dodgy defence, I'm not even sure if I'd have them as favourites for the FA Cup, Chelsea and Manure are playing some good stuff at the moment and own;t be intimidated by Citeh, Arsenal I have less hope for, but you never know, was very surprised them beating Wolves.
