      Anyone been watching that Suarez bloke? Looks a pretty tidy player to me.  :f_tongueincheek:

      Looks a bit of a c**t though and strikes me as about as loyal as a hooker 😏

      Thinking this last night. Morrocco seem  to play like us and Atletico. A couple of cheap pickups would be excellent business.

      Liverpool and Atletico with completely different playing styles!

      If Mooy had a motor, he’d play at a higher level than Huddersfield.

      Big fan of Matt Leckie, too. Always our biggest threat.

      I was looking forward to Arzani getting some World Cup action, great young talent.

      Me too but he’s had some injury problems over the years. Quality player on the ball.

      He’s fantastic. Looks so comfortable on the big stage.

      I meant Harry Maguire  ;D, seriously though him and Van Dijk would be as our American cousins say "Awesome".

      Harry Maguire?

      He's just a potato in a kit.

      ;D

      Yeah, never in doubt

      No where near a Liverpool legend though..  can't say I feel much fondness for him personally

      Simply one of the best players I've seen in the flesh with a football at his feet.

      But then again most of the players I see as legends are before 1990!!

      Me too mate, think we're the same age.

      There's quite a few boxes that need to be ticked for me to be classed as a legend and Suarez no matter how good just doesn't for me

      I get why people think like that tbh a few performances into his career and was already inevitable he wouldn't be here that long once Real or Barca came sniffing, I just prefer to appreciate the footballer he was and the drive he had to win.

      It's not the Barca thing for me it's more the arsenal summer and the fact he never won anything

      Quality though but like i say just don't have that fond a memory of him personally

      13-14 was unbelievable and had we won it he'd have gone down in history

      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 like Rebić. He's strong lad with pace and can cover front three positions.

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

      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.

      Was starting to think "he's older than me" and then stopped and counted and realized this is my 10th. Getting old here. Agree game is less technical, much more athletic-based than it once was.

      Seeing Ahmed Musa take those goals today was the first time in this tournament someone made me think, maybe he could be an option.

      It would be as a backup of course and as he's under contract to Leicester, my guess is the price would be inflated. Doesn't look like he's set the world on fire in his career, but I'm just going by those two goals today. took them well,

      Probably as much in it as every other transfer thought this summer. I just miss the season, miss avid discussion on here  and miss a lot of things at the moment.

      Shocked he found the net with both his chances! He was awful for Leicester.

      KDB is magnificent to watch. Utterly brilliant and makes it look effortless.

      Lozano, I agree, has been immense for Mexico in the two games I've seen.  His pressing would be suit us.
