    1001332389497491457 Really! Why won’t they just leave the guy alone. Once again the British Media trying to unsettle our players before a major tournament.
  3. Question How much would you pay to see us sign a top striker?

    With the off season being a bit dull and looking around at other clubs' fans who have decide to raise funds to buy a player. Grimsby wanted to raise £20k to help them achieve promotion and having smashed that are looking for £100k now. http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/GTFC A couple of slightly...

    Can somebody help me out I'm struggling to read through all the ******** in the news atm, Now that it is looking likely that Greece are to leave the EU what imact will this have on the Euro? will the value fall? meaning the sterling pound will have even more value over the euro?
  5. Ireland v England!!!

    How was it for you!!!Another poor England game,even Roy looked gormless(again),after the game..I love England,but its getting harder,to get up to watch this rubbish..its what the Germans call "kötzen fussball",football to make you sick. The bloke on the tv saw/said Ray Lewington,barking his...
  6. Raheem Sterling

    Sorry to post a Graniud link but this piece by Jacob Steinberg is great. And what follows it might be the best football quote of all time. http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/may/19/its-just-the-way-it-works
  7. Sterling

    Rejects 100k a week deal citing its not about money,he just wants to win things. Looking forward when he signs for any bigger club his salary will remain at 30k and his signing on fee will go to charity ,it's not about the money don't you know.

    Raheem Sterling

    Just come across this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVVB9nngJZc Absolutely tore our poor young lads apart with mainly his acceleration, pace and a bit of skill...
  9. England vs Uruguay

    Very disappointing. Feels like one of those games where no one particularly underperformed or messed up, it was just a meh performance all around and we were punished for it. Maybe we do need a bit of an injection within the team and bring in Barkley or someone. Sterling was very subdued and we...
  10. Kevin Hogg

    Going against popular opinion.

    EVERYBODY (including me) has been crying out for the pace, energy and enthusiasm of youth in the England team. 2012 we looked completely out of ideas and just managed to grind results before losing on penalties to a team that destroyed us..but drew the game. Since yesterday morning all the...
  11. steveo


    In or out for the next game? The BBC guys had a brief debate about it, which if you didn't see it went something like Rio saying we should play him in his best position, Shearer saying that would be where Sturridge played and he scored, so Ferdinand says play him in the No 10 role, countered by...

    OFT not to investigate Fuel Prices further

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/anger-from-drivers-as-oft-rules-out-fuel-price-probe-8472532.html here here Taxation, poor sterling performance vs the dollar and crude prices further up the chain are the obvious causes, and its sensible that lots of tax payers money hasnt been...

    England Squad

    Glad to see Osman has finally been given a chance, at 31 !! Massivley underated. Wilshere doesn't derserve his place IMO, nor does Glen Johnson. The defence looks weak IMO but apart from that a very attack minded squad, that's presumably gonna be asked to defend for 90 minutes. Still better...
  14. Oh, Vienna

    Gave up a free ticket for Ultravox to watch a sterling, back to the wall performance. Saw Spicer begin his tackle at 7.45 and land it at 7.57. Let's hope we get to bring some central midfielders in as it ain't happening for this guy. My main point to this thread is what have you skipped in...
  15. Raheem Sterling called up to the England squad

    I know that he's a good player and that there's an issue in the background with him being eligible to play for Jamaica, but isn't this about three years too early? Adam Lallana and Jake Livermore have been called up too. I like Lallana but not too sure about Livermore.

    Euros to sterling Exchange Rates?

    I have brought back to many "Euros" from my hols and am trying to get the best deal possible for "Buyback". When I purchased my original money I paid an amount that gurantees buyback at the same rate but reading the small print it only covers the first "£200". I have been offerered and...
  17. Raheem Sterling

    Yes, that one that tore our U18s to bit on Monday, could become Liverpool's youngest ever player as he's been included in the squad for their UEFA Cup tie with Sparta Prague.

    Under 18's Match Report Southend Bow Out Of FA Youth Cup At Liverpool

    Five-goal Raheem Sterling proved to be the difference as Liverpool’s Academy side overwhelmed Southend United with a 9-0 FA Youth Cup Fifth Round victory at Anfield. Rob Craven's Match Report can be found here.

    Doesn't go out until tomorrow, but I thought I'd let you lot have an early peak.... As usual feel free to agree/disagree, or go nothing at all :)
  20. Josh Simpson must play CM

    Fairly simple and obvious I would have thought. I said it after the Wolves game (where he played on the wing, but it was obvious he wanted to creep inside) and after yesterdays sterling performance, it should be plain to see he's a key player, who, when played in the centre can be the difference...
