    That week will be very tiring for our players. Thank goodness it's only Bournemouth we play in between United and Arsenal, our fringe squad should have enough to win anyways.

    Cheers guys.

    How is everyone feeling about the Newcastle game?
    They'll be very confident at home especially as they just have beaten City at the Etihad 2-0, so they'll be full of belief and no doubt will be pressing us right from the beginning. It should be an interesting game to watch as both teams will be going for the win, I think it'll be a 2-1 win to us.

    i'm seriously nervous about them.
    although as a team they're hilariously unpredictable.
    now that some pressure is off pardew they might just regress again.
    regardless we need to put in a good performance

    damn that's not pretty.
    both of those games are 6 pointers but i also want us to try to get a trophy this season!

    top 4 is more important though
    second string team against bournemouth is most likely

    Actually gutted it's away at Bournemouth, means I won't be able to go

    They didn't play the full first team, and they have momentum, and it's at St James' Park - it's going to be close. If we play like we did last night we should come away with a win, but forgive me if I don't have any faith in Rodgers to stick with what works.

    Damn, I didn't realise that their first XI wasn't playing. I'm an optimistic person so I have faith we can get a win, whether it's by a solid team performance or sheer luck is another story. I do understand how you feel though since we've been really poor for the most part of this season. As long as Coutinho starts and there's someone partnering Balo I'll be quite hopeful of winning.

    Tbh it will be a very different set of players for both Newcastle and Liverpool. They beat Leicester (not that surprising) and Spurs are going through a tough patch at the moment. No doubt they will be full of confidence but it's probably more about what we do and whether we can get an early goal to start with.

    Bournemouth are in great form at the moment, they'll give you a drubbing.

    Sterling, Markovic and Origi on the shortlist for European Golden Boy (for players under 21). We have more nominees than any other club.

    Full shortlist:

    Spoiler:

    Calum Chambers (Arsenal), Kurt Zouma (Chelsea), John Stones (Everton), Raheem Sterling, Lazar Markovic. (Liverpool), Adnan Januzaj, Luke Shaw (Manchester United), Nabil Bentaleb and Eric Dier (Tottenham), Gerard Deulofeu (Sevilla), Aymeric Laporte (Athletic Bilbao), Munir El Haddai (Barcelona), Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid), Sandro Ramirez (Barcelona) Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo), Bernardeschi Franco (Fiorentina), Kingsley Coman (Juventus), Keita Balde Diao (Lazio), Mateo Kovacic (Inter), Hakan Calhanoglu (Bayer Leverkusen), Gianluca Gaudino (Bayern Munich), Mathias Ginter (Borussia Dortmund), Julian Green (Hamburg), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Bayern Munich), Maximilian Meyer (Schalke), Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain), Benjamin Mendy (Marseille), Lucas Ocampos (Monaco), Divock Origi (Lille), Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain), Bruma (Galatasaray), Gonzalez (Basel), Arkadiusz Milik (Ajax), Alexander Mitrovic (Anderlecht), Nikola Ninkovic (Partizan Belgrade), Dennis Praet (Anderlecht), Oliver Torres (Porto), Tonny Vilhena (Feyenoord), Jetro Willems (PSV), Luka Zahovic (Maribor).


    It's good to see five Englishmen in there. For me the favourites are Raheem Sterling, Domenico Berardi and Hakan Calhanoglu. I was desperate for us to sign Berardi this summer but I suppose I should be happy with Origi :P

    This Liverpool team has quite a lot of potential if they are capable of growing together. None of the key players leave early, just shown by the amount of players in the running for Golden Boy.

    Hows Tiago Ilori doing?

    I can't remember it ever getting reported but it turns out he's on loan at Bordeaux (a top half Ligue 1 side). He's played 4 games, but all I really have to go off is statistics tbh. He has 1 goal and 1 man of the match award. He went off after 27 minutes on the 3rd of October and hasn't played since, so I'm presuming he's injured. Overall, he seems pretty highly rated judging by the teams that wanted to take him on loan and him appearing to go straight into their team.

    I find whoscored best for stats and keeping track of loan players: http://www.whoscored.com/Players/105...ow/Tiago-Ilori

    Overall it's hard to judge how good he will be for us until he has played in England. Next season he really needs to be playing in the PL, whether it is for us or on loan.

    Considering we've spent ~£40mil in the last two summers on Lovren, Sakho and Ilori, I can't see us buying anymore CB's for the foreseeable future. I think the expectation is that from next season, BR really should have formed a workable partnership out of Sakho and Lovren, with Skrtel/Wisdom/Ilori as back-up.
