Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

It's one thing to say Kane may not suit Liverpool's style of play but another thing to dismiss him as a long ball target man. If that were true, it would seem odd that Barcelona were reportedly interested in him to replace Luis Suarez. Really? Why would they be interested when they already have a b...

Victor Meldrew BTW he is a good penalty taker and a lot of his goals have come from the spot but James Milner is even better. :wink:


Of his 202 senior career goals (club+country), only 28 of them have been penalties.


14% is quite a lot and 50% at the last World Cup..

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Now that I've seen Kane written off as some kind of long ball target man I think I can officially declare this the worst football opinion I've ever seen. You obviously haven't seen many.

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Agreed with genome. Shocking opinion, have you actually ever seen Kane play? You can’t say whether one would get in another team as the teams play differently. If Kane had come up through the Liverpool academy, they might not be playing the way the way they do now and Firmino/Sane wouldn’t fit thei...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

You think Kane is one-dimensional and is only suited to hoof-ball. Enough said. Terrible, terrible opinion I said long ball, not hoof ball. I get the impression that you are quite a fan of Harry Kane. BTW who the f*** do you think you are deciding that somebody else's opinion is so terrible, terrib...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

one-dimentional Kane would not be needed other perhaps than as a sub if they wanted to play long ball.. Jesus Christ this is a terrible opinion Not sure what our lord has to do with it but many thanks for your own "terrible opinion" which has contributed nothing to the discussion. See ear...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

They have won a 6th European Cup and achieved the 3rd highest points total in Premier League history so I very much doubt that Kane would get in ahead of Firminho in that fab front 3-he just isn't their type and why on earth would Liverpool want to change the way they play to accommodate an old-fas...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Solely on the question of Kane, Hoops has explained far better than me why he wouldn't get in the Liverpool team because of the way they play. Same goes for Man City-he wouldn't get in their starting team either and maybe even at Arsenal. I'm afraid Mags that actual football is not championship man...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

It's hard to know who is trolling here and who's just a deranged Liverpool fan but to suggest that Harry Kane wouldn't get in the Liverpool team is so utterly batshit I don't even know where to start with it. He's one of the best strikers in the world :lol: An additional rofl for the suddenly undro...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

They will though, they’ve got everything in place now - great stadium, facilities, manager, core of a great squad that just needs 2 or 3 more top players and some more depth. They just need to keep Poch, look at the difference between them now and when he took over. Quite similar to Klopp and Liver...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Things keep coming back to me as to just how shit Spurs were. They bring on Llorente (far far too late) and we (everyone!) knows what he is good at.... with about 2 minutes left they get the ball about 1/3rd into Liverpool’s half wide on the right with clear space to deliver the ball into the penal...

Re: THE BETTING THREAD

Winston Biscuit Why cant I put 2 promotion or relegation bets into an accumulator?


Betfair can be a bit awkward with this type of combination bet.
Are the teams in different divisions?;if so it is sometimed deemed that the individual price is incorrect as the other teams are interlinked.
Have never really got it.

Re: Rumour - Patrick Bauer

I'd like to see a re-run of Bilko. Loved Bilko. I'm with RF here as we watch very little American TV (or films where so often the clever dialogue is just oxf*rd, oxf*rd, oxf*rd)) apart from coverage of NFL and golf. Wouldn't mind Bauer in our squad but, if we keep Moore, I suspect Osho, McIntyre an...
