    Same goes for City if they add Mangala instead of Demichelis.
    True although Luis will happen this season but Mangala probably won't

    Our style of football really isn't suited to Balotelli. I hate to say it - but it's patently obvious. Wish we'd have pinched Remy.
    Tbh him and Sturridge will do well. That's who you're missing tbh. You'll see the difference in your performance.

    Although Rodgers cocked up in starting Lucas tbh. Gerrard and Lucas cannot play together. You'd think with buying Can they'd use him in a game like this.

    Depends, if you say United's first choice defence is Shaw-Rojo-Jones-Rafael then it's surely us. Liverpool's can't be more than £65m
    see my post above; we're around 50m give or take

    united's is clearly the most expensive but don't foget that both the united and liverpool defence are meant to be for the future
    on paper there's really no reason why liverpool's defence in particular is so bad - i think it's a combination of lack of communication and lack of protection from the midfield because our fullbacks and quality and lovren is solid in general.

    Chelsea's is actually really cheap.
    Terry = free
    Cahill = £7m
    Azpi = £7m
    Ivan = £10m

    Only 24 in total, although it'll obviously go up a lot when Luis comes in as he was 20m.

    edit: actually so is City's:
    Kompany = 6
    Clichy = 7
    Demichelis = 3.5
    Zabaleta = 6.5
    £23m
    didn't expect chelsea's to be so cheap, however i suppose they've had ivanovic/terry/cahill for a long time now so they will have been cheaper when acquired.
    i wish we had anything close to a chelsea style defence
    7m for cahill, terry for free:coma:

    6m for kompany, how is that fair? :mad:
    it's quite ridiculous how much we've both spent and how little we've got for it :/

    demichelis will be 34 in december. when he stops making pellegrini *** out via rimming due to pellegrini's balls having erectile dysfunction he'll decide to play mangala.

    So will Terry. He's been doing well recently so I don't see why he'd be dropped

    City have kept one clean sheet in 11 or so games supposedly. Although I think that's equally Kompany's fault.

    Chelsea's defence has been poor though but that's mainly the fault of Ivanovic and Cahill.

    next league game is huge for you guys..

    atleast you have a decent home game midweek to try and build some confidence (and rest some players)

    But then against everton..

    loose that and realistically you are out of the title race in september..

    (4 losses out of 6 games.. title winning teams in the last few seasons have lost: 6, 5, 5, 4, 6, 4, 5.. etc.)

    So on average a title winning team tends to loose around 5 games.

    To have taken up 4 of those by the end of September is beyond disastrous.

    Must win game.

    It was more the international break that ****ed us up than the CL. Can, Allen and Sturridge all got injured during the break. Two of those three would of started the three previous games we played after the break.

    As expected the pseudo intellectuals coming out after a loss and gassing about CL being the problem.

    The problem isn't that our players look tired because of a midweek game (it's not exactly like this is the first time these players have played a midweek game), CL isn't even a significant factor in this yet, it's mostly because of the fact that we have injuries to players that we seemingly aren't able to cope without. Not to mention we were playing like this bar Tottenham which has been the only game we had all 3 of Ballo/Sturridge/Sterling and bar Lallana a fully fit squad.
    The rotation hasn't made a substantial difference, not enough to have altered the course of most of those games because even with our best 11 (non-injured) we are still lackluster because we don't have at least 2 of those 3. Sure no CL would help a little but the only significant difference from rotation we get is when Raheem doesn't play because he is our only driving force, at the moment him and Lallana are the only people with decent quality trying to drive into the box and Lallana isn't even fully fit.

    We bought players in to cope with injuries but I doubt we were banking on having this many key injuries this early into the season, the new players haven't had a chance to bed and the likes of Lallana are barely even fit coming back from injury. Can was supposed to be the guy to come in for Allen or Hendo and even Gerrard but ofc he is injured as well as Allen so there isn't really much you can do bar stick in dross like Lucas.

    We were going to have a slow start to the season regardless, you don't bring in the amount of players we did and still compete with the likes of Chelsea and City for the title- at least not from the word go. Not to mention we started slowly last season, we scraped through games without two strikers and Gerrard was poor until near the second half of the season which is also around the time that Sturridge came back from injury and the front 3 of Sterling/Suarez/Sturridge started to really go ham, I think it was nearly November until we actually clicked.



    I'll stick my neck out and say that by Decemeber we should see a significant improvement provided our injured players are back and internationals don't wreck the rest of our team.

    WEST HAM

    It's all gone wrong. Suarez gone. Gerrard past it. Sturridge injured. Only just been Ludo. Be lucky to finish 5th this season to be honest. Balotelli is a total waste of space. Back to reality for Anfield.

    Lol, you conceded three against West Ham... you're going to get ripped the **** apart by Bale & Ronaldo.

    That said, you missed two key things today;

    1) Sturridge. He transforms your team. If he can stay clear of further injuries, then you should be alright for top six.

    2) Gerrard's penalties. His penalties won you so many games last season. I'm not saying the referee's are bias (it's the result of direct football), but you could really do with more of those.
