Is he he guy who runs the docks in season 2 of the Wire?  :D

Honestly not sure I've seen him play / noticed him when I did. I'll look out for him though. I watched Betis v Celta a few weeks ago and he either didn't play or did nothing to catch the eye. Don't think he played when Northern Ireland played Slovakia last season either.

About small players as our #6, all high pressing sides need someone who is very competitive in the air in the #6 role - or have that task assigned to someone nearby. A by product of high pressing is a lot of long balls from the keeper, full backs and center backs end up in his zone. We've already been exposed this season twice that I can remember from us losing such headers in midfield. Someone even weaker in that spot would be a huge problem for us not just from open play, but in that #6 is one of the few roles in the side where we can get some height into the team and deal with set pieces without losing anything from our pressing/attacking game. In the same way Gini would concern me there, although he is competitive in the air despite his height (not quite Lucas levels though). Henderson is much better than both in that sense and yet still I feel that is one of the areas where he is a problem for us in that role.

I know you like re-watching games mate so I'd recommend giving England Slovakia a look if you didn't see it. Was a fun game to watch and Lobotka will definitely catch your eye.

Just close your eyes when our £35m signing picks up the ball on the left-wing...

Best album I've heard for years mate.
Brilliant isn't it? Can't stop listening.

Billy Corgan's a fucking dreadful singer.
I really like him, but he's definitely an acquired taste. I can see why you wouldn't.

Babu whats is your opinion on Lobotka ?

He seems perfect to play Hendo role. He is short but very intelligent defensively and aggressive reminds me of Masch but also he has natural composure on the ball, he doesn’t panic when pressed which is amazing considering how young he is and always makes himself available for a pass.. Maybe I am overrating him so would love to know your opinion

News and Current Affairs / Re: The Labour Party (*)

I maintain my belief that there are people on the right of the Labour Party who would rather a Tory government than a left-wing, Corbyn-led Labour government, as their personal policy preferences are closer to Tory than left-Labour.

You do that. It's important to believe in something.. Any idea of who these people are?

Cheers for that  ;)
looking at the ebay pictures it looks like 1 of the cables has snapped on mine (1 was led down flat, not connected on 1 end)

The trouble is you say the manager doesn't want that, then I'm at a loss how Klopp improves us defensively unless he does start wanting it.

Jurgen Klopp, 19th September 2017: "I'm sick of conceding goals like this."

The penny will drop for him. It may already have. Schmelzer and Piszczek were fairly big lads at full-back as were Bender/Kehl, Hummels and Subotic in the defensive spine.

It'll get rectified. It's just a shame he hasn't been as ruthless here as he was at Dortmund. But I think that's an awful lot to do with downgrading from Zorc to Edwards.

How surprising that our lack of depth at CB gets exposed after a handful of games.

Who could have foreseen such madness......

The silver lining of course is those who say it's not a personnel issue must not be worried about it. As makes no difference who plays or comes in anyway.

Iniesta's record in this league. 398 games. 105 goals, 106 assists. Av rating of 7.49. Most of his careers has been at Barca and i always played him as a cm. If he had been played as a forward, much greater stats. A difference maker
