  1. I'd go with that except for dasilva who I felt deserved better than a 6. Go one higher. Henriksen very poor. Take one off for him, possibly two. Granted he's not played for ages and he's been thrown into our side but I'd expect better than that.
  2. Leeds out of form with a dodgy goalkeeper. Of course they were gonna keep a clean sheet against us. So little going forward.
  3. Just to add further to this. The tough tackling types ie, Keane, simeone and gatusso - all are shorter than 6ft. They just need a better mentality when it comes to the physical side of the game.
  4. Makelele, mascherano, Kante, Fernandinho. The best cmds of our and the last generation. All are 5ft 9 bar Kante who is 5ft 6. This whole, needs to be big to be able to tackle is nonsense. They just need to grow a pair and get stuck in.
  5. It was. I was hoping it would be his last goal in Europe but he's scored for AC Milan since he left the USA.
  6. Graham kavanagh. Both when he was at Cardiff and Stoke. Always played well against us. Mind you he was good against everyone. Surprised he never made it higher than he did although he had one season in the Premier league with Wigan but was loaned out the following year. Despite him coming back from a serious injury and approaching 40, we were lucky to get to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic before he retired. I know he's still going but I doubt he'll play against us again.
  7. Another good bit of profit from a player we got for close to nothing. Just need to go that extra mile so that the club ends up in the Premier league, not just the players we sell.
  8. This photo is doing the rounds on social media at the moment
  9. So strange that you've posted this. Proper truman show moment as I was only speaking to my colleague yesterday and showed him old trafford on street view and one corner does look proper old. Course inside the on pitch view its glorious but some external aspects and probably internal concourses need upgrading. Mind you, spurs new ground is outstanding. Almost as good as Ashton Gate.
  10. Managed by Ancelotti too. These Everton players don't realise how lucky they are to be managed by one of the greats.
  11. And yet Brazilian Ronaldo was probably faster than all 3.
  12. Whilst I don't disagree with that, I do think that the Cole - Pires - Henry attack down Liverpool's right hand side would cause TAA and gomez / matip / lovren a hell of a lot of bother. Teams knew they'd attack that flank and yet arsenal still managed to go a whole season undefeated. Pires offered nothing in defence but had the protection of Gilberto Silva ( incredibly underrated Makelele esque midfielder) and Vieira who was the best all round midfielder the prem has seen*. Those 2 can protect the already great defensive back 4 and allow the attacking players to get on with it. Lehmann Lauren Campbell toure cole Mane Firminho Salah Ljungberg Vieira Gilberto pires Wijnaldum Henderson Milner Bergkamp Henry Robertson VVD Gomez TAA Alisson that arsenal side has power, pace, strength and skill. Similar to Liverpool. As you say, Liverpool have high energy, so does that arsenal side (bar Pires, lazy sod) * I know that's up for debate but in my opinion I'd say that was right.
  13. At present, I'd go along with that. When wenger arrived. He brought with him the sport science ideals that hadn't been seen before in the prem back in the mid 90s and that invincible side were great to watch but also grounded out results where needed. Sol Campbell was a colossus that season and often gets over looked because of Vieira's midfield dominance and Henry up front. Put this Liverpool team against that invincibles team. Arsenal win. But if Liverpool keep going and get even win back to back champions leagues, I'd have to change my mind. That is something arsenal never did. They should have done that unbeaten year but Chelsea knocked them out and all the other "big guns" went out early too. That was the year that Porto under mourinho won and the semi finalists that year were them, Chelsea, Monaco and deportivo.
