    Think the Ox is getting a bit carried away there, not heard any Gooners go that far!

    Shelvey has had a good start to the season, tbh I'd rather see him start for England than Lampard/Gerrard.

    I can't believe the press are still persisting with their agenda against AVB, he can't do anything that they won't spin into BS making him look bad. That's why I'm such a fan of Twitter, gives normal supporters the chance to call out journo's on the rubbish they come up with.

    AVB is probably going to get manager of the month (most points in September of any team). Looking forward to seeing how they spin that one negatively.

    And he plays for Liverpool. Seems that if you're English and have a couple of good games for Liverpool you'll get called up by England. Meh, not bothered.

    @Syrette Agreed. That said I think it's good to get younger players involved.

    Hodgson can't win. Picks Gerrard/Lampard - people moan.

    Picks a promising young midfielder who is in good form - still not happy.

    A Wilshere/Shelvey duo in the long term could work well for us. Both are close friends from their days in the Arsenal youth.

    I'd probably complain about Shelvey if there were any real alternatives.

    Umm, Liverpool have a few pretty decent english players though (Kelly, Sterling, Shelvey and Robinson) and i don't exactly see a raft of young talent elsewhere. You really do have some major issues with Liverpool ;P.

    He's picking overrated youngsters and overrated has-beens that all seem to play for Liverpool.

    Indeed. Admittedly I don't watch every minute of Liverpool but he's never particularly impressed me or stood out as an International at this stage. Good job it's not my opinion that counts I guess
  • Deleted user 8 October 2012 19:05:47
    There's plenty of young talent at other clubs. Just because Liverpool only have 3 players over 21 that they didn't loan or sell over the summer and had to plug the holes with whatever they had lying around doesn't mean they're any good.

    The league table suggests that, at best, they aren't ready yet.

    So has anyone noticed that Suarez doesn't actually appeal for anything?

    Assume you're taking the mick? Even his dive at the weekend he puts out the hands and looks at the ref, such a tosser.

    I don't mean in general, just the one yesterday. He shrugs his shoulders as if to say "WTF?" but doesn't actually appeal. If you've seen him play before, you'll know that when he appeals it's pretty fucking obvious.

    Admittedly, the highlights only show his dives and the thouands of times he is offside, but he seems to appeal every blow of the whistle.

    Bale didn't appeal either, doesn't mean they both weren't horrific dives.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    It's still astonishing that the "big issue" this weekend was diving (or possibly Ashley Cole's fucking innocuous tweet), not stamping and elbowing.

    Huh. I had assumed he was a foreigner because of the weird name.

    It wasnt a stamp. If it was deliberate no one alive would have been able to resist using him for a doormat.

    HAH!

    And the reason it is big news is because of all of the recent 'Poor little Luis' stuff emanating from Liverpool recently. Just when he was starting to get a bit of sympathy he goes and does that.

    I actually don't think he meant it. I think it shows exactly who it is because it is completely instinctual. He realizes he has gone down and instinctively flops like a fucking idiot to win a penalty.

    Either he is thick or Rodgers isnt doing his job properly because I would be going fucking apeshit if he not only kept doing that but was actively reducing my teams chances of being awarded anything.

    The 'The Best of THE KOP' box on the right of the page showing fan blogs is Liverpool PR comedy gold.

    'Disgrace'

    'Joe Cole can't do half of what SUSO does'

    'HIT THE TARGET!!!'

    'LOL @ BR'

    :'D

    I wish more clubs would follow Mancini's lead and instruct all of their players to never dive. He seems to get quite angry about it when they do.

    Not sure if anyone saw it, but on MotD3 Lawro said something akin to:

    "Lineker said that at Barca they were actively encouraged to dive".

    This is 20-odd years so it can hardly be seen as a new phenomenon but I completely agree that more managers had the balls to come out like Pullis and slate the prime culprits.
