    I haven't laughed this hard in a loooong time. https://twitter.com/_Chris_Hurst_/status/1114642421701402624 I'll tweet the pic to Carra see if he'll rock it just to spite Martin Tyler. We'll go from there.

    Pretty much. It's also become insufferable the commentary against the club. Like does it really mean that much to you to not see us win it? Well have some of that. Nothing left to say but "Mo Salah you little dancer!" (Wife is literally making me this t-shirt as we speak)
  3. At least that would force an identity on us. The Nats are a bit of a rudderless ship at the moment. Used to be strong pitching and defense. Now we look like a Danny Smith special teams unit.
  4. Since when was this kind of talk allowed in here?

    That was the kind of effort you get from Champions. What a game. Always felt like we were scoring a second, even after the Cissoko miss and the almost corner in the 70s... But can I just pick a little more from this bone I've had for years. Spurs haven't scored a legal goal against us in about four years and today was another example. Even that couldn't stop the roll. ****ing made up for this week.
  6. I made this post in the Ereck Flowers thread: Let me tell you lads a little story I like to call "The Ballad of Big Mike Williams" No... not one of the receiving Mike Williams'.... but the Tackle Mike Williams who was the 4th pick in the NFL draft in 2002. He bounced around from city to city and buffet to buffet in the early years of his career. Then was out of football for a time before coming to work for Coach Keeping it Medium, himself. He weighed over 400lbs when he showed up to Redskins camp, eventually dropping a ton of weight so that he could play guard, where he played really well to be fair. Unfortunately he had a bad ticker and had to retire. I get the same vibe from this signing - no tangible reason other than I just feel like it's going to work out. Flowers is also much younger than Big Mike was when he showed up. If he can be motivated then he could work out. I don't think Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff are going to let anyone half-ass their way on this offensive line.

  8. Flowers is intriguing. It's often motivation with these bigger dudes. I would've rather spent the money elsewhere, but he may just pan out.

    That would get you in the team most of the time. We should all be so lucky.

    Wanted to talk about the left back Bryan for Fulham. Two weeks in a row now I've watched the kid and he's put in two really good shifts. Might be worth grabbing him if he's affordable to spot Andy in cup ties unless Klopp's ready to let Camacho roll both spots. Better than Moreno by far and his link up with Babel both weeks was excellent and his defending is obviously pretty good.

    Looks like 9 April for the first leg. Honestly was shocked. I screamed in my car while driving to work, lol. Taking nothing for granted, of course. Well it looks like I've scored more goals in Asia than him so let me know when he gets on my level.

    That's about the depth of your research across the board so I'm not surprised that this is the conclusion you've come to. I'm with @Long n Left, I don't think there are many Reds who rate Hendo higher than Fabinho at all, but like he says - he has put a few performances in recently and he was only out there for about 10 minutes and that may have been Fabinho's worst performance for Liverpool result aside. So I think Jurgen Klopp knows a little more about his midfield than you or I do. Like I said earlier in the week I absolutely scoffed at the Lallana selection at the weekend and he was MOTM. Let's trust the dude who sees the players in training every day. If you want to critique feel free but if you want serious interaction I'm looking for something a little more tangible than that. So you hedged your bet and that is to excuse the petulance of the five years? Don't think Fred and BTFOOM are coming to your rescue! I do respect you more for taking it on the chin. It's all in fun, brother. And yes - y'all definitely need an overhaul. We'll see if you're in on the money like Real will be. They need one as well. This is set to be a summer of a lot of movement. Real talk - what did you have to eat?

    Again... I think he has his pulse on the team. Fabs was about a 5 today. Turned it over a bunch and was booked. He clearly has a plan with his midfield. At least United are still in. If VAR was worth a **** your entire family tree would've been out of CL in the first round. I'm going to say 100% chance we play an English club and I'm also going to say it's going to be United. City is going to get Ajax. Watch.

    I see Bayern have employed the strategy of grab and dive. This is ridiculous....
