- Soccerball – 2017/18 jumpers for goalposts megathread
It’s Kevin Keegan football. It’s an attitude.
The thing is that defenders have gone to Anfield who were pretty decent players, and previously been part of effective defensive units. Then as soon as they put a red shirt on they seem to just be infected with the same totally shambolic lack of positional awareness.
Didn’t Liverpool ship more goals than any other team last season? They just scored more. You’ll never win owt if you’re totally incapable of keeping clean sheets. But even if they spend Phil’s transited money on defenders, I can’t see it changing much
It’s bloody great to watch though 😀Posted 7 months ago
Yeah I do agree it’s more of a collective team mentality than just the defenders. I reckon if they had a top class, commanding goalie there’d be less jitters any time the ball goes near the box.
Man U to win the league based on dull 1 nil and 2 nil victories in comparison.Posted 7 months ago
Just had a thought there, if we get by Astana(we should, but I’m not counting my chickens), the stars will probably align so that we get liverpool, rodgers v klopp. Not usually superstitious but those kinda match ups/conicidences pop up all the time in fitba!
Mind you Astana are gonny hate us after we put them out with 2 penalties last year, so lets get there first(dodgy defence and injuries to strikers are a concern)! 😆Posted 7 months agoMSPSubscriber
He is consistent, if unremarkable, and can pass out from the back, you have to remember he would be effectively the 4th choice centre back. If he can be had for under 20 million, it makes more sense than 35 million for another unremarkable fourth choice centre back which seems to be the going rate in this transfer window.
Apparently he also still lives in Manchester, and is tired of travelling to the midlands, so it could be a deal that suits everyone, if probably rather inconsequential.Posted 7 months ago
I’m not predicting anything, certainly not the title.
I’m just enjoying watching some decent, entertaining attacking football, with a team looking to go forward, rather than the sideways/sideways/backwards stuff we’ve been enduring for the last few seasons
We looked good defencively last season, but nowhere near sharp enough going forward. I’m enjoying Tony Marshall’s solskjaer-esque super-sub role in particular 🙂Posted 7 months ago
