Yeah, so thats the problem with these games against teams like Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Isle of Sky, Papa New Guinea, San Marino, the Faroe Islands, Western Samoa, Gabon, Lebanon, USA and the Principality of Sao Tome.

The games tend to turn into slow exhibition games.

Never mind.

You have 7 and a half years to practice before your big moment comes, 2026!

You guys could be as good as Cameroon by then!

 

 


Ouch. Just uncalled for bro... totally wrong.

So Liverpool are having their best season in their illustrious history...and yet City still look better! Talk about bad fucking luck with regards to the PL.
Sure, they could still win the league but you've gotta make City favourites at the moment. Every game they play they just look fucking relentless.

timessquare - So Liverpool are having their best season in their illustrious history...and yet City still look better! Talk about bad fucking luck with regards to the PL.

Liverpool are getting results but not actually playing that well, firmino has been really nonexistent in most games and breaks down a lot of attacks with his passing at the moment. The midfield is very sluggish with Milner, Henderson and wijnaldum playing together, they all have similar attributes and the same short comings, it should be one of Henderson or Fabinho with either Keita or shaqiri with Milner or wijnaldum imo. This season is the inverse of last season, the team is relying on their defence and the attack isn’t working efficiently.

 The defence is the best it’s been since Benitez and they’ve come a long way under Klopp, but if the attack doesn’t kick into life again soon or van dijk gets injured then dropping points is inevitable, I can’t see many teams slowing city down

I agree with a lot of what you've wrote. For a start they should go back to Salah on the right & Firmino down the middle like last season. That worked, this season's new set up isn't working as well.
The biggest blow however is Gomez having fractured his leg and not back til January. With the games against City, Arsenal, Utd & Napoli in that period it's just not going to be the same without Gomez. He is THAT important to the team.
Without the axis of VVD & Gomez, the defence & therefore the whole team just isn't as solid. It's like a confidence thing that just upsets the balance totally. I expect more goals to be leaked now with Lovren coming back in. I'm not slagging Lovren, just saying that he is nowhere near on the level of Gomez.

Lovren has been disappointing to plainly shit for 80% of his Liverpool career, but he was excellent at the end of last season and at the World Cup. Matip would concern me more. Gomez has been the most consistent performer in the team, he was even good in rare games that VVD was off

 

Firmino and salah definitely need to swap, salah is playing better now than the start of the season but he tries to do too much sometimes when there are options. Firmino will hit form again but might need a rest, I’d love to see sturridge get anywhere near what he was

Solanko

He looked good in preseason last year but I’ve not seen much from him when he’s played since then. He’s only 21 though and should go out on loan in January

Yes - you are reading this correctly.

Over the past 4 years, Messi has scored more free kicks than any team in any of the 5 top leagues.

GOAT.
