2674728, Weekend Soccer 10.06-07: Who wants to be a Milner
Posted by benny, Fri Oct-05-18 11:26 AM
The hits keep on coming for Liverpool; following a scorching hot start they crashed back to earth after a week with 2 losses and a draw. Now they have leaders City stopping by for a visit in what clearly looks like the game of the season thus far. The Reds had resounding success against the Citizens last season at Anfield, but their current slump is clearly cause for concern. Klopp will probably look to change certain things on Sunday, including a midfield lineup that just hasn't been working out during this bad stretch. Keita has the tools to break down complex opposition, so a bigger role for him could be key. Could Xhaqiri, who had some very good spurts in these games, feature more? Or should Sturridge, scorer of one of the gems in the season to snatch a point at Chelsea, play earlier. In any case if Salah keeps struggling through his runs and touches, it may not be enough to counter a City team that could see the return of KDB, Gundogan and Mendy.

Barca travel to Valencia, a team that is low in the rankings but actually hasn't lost in the league since late August. FCB did look vivified against Spurs this week, and they'll look to right the ship after two weeks of not winning league games (thankfully for them matched by Madrid).

like, even as a player if you hate playing for Mou, have some personal pride.

too many guys out there half assing it IS part of the problem.

Woodward and Mou should go.
2674772, Squad full of bitch ass niggas. Jose should've resigned after the transfer window closed

Done in on both sides by inept upper management and HO ASS NIGGAS on the field. I don't hold this against him at all.

2674778, Once again the players don't show up until personal embarrassment is imminent.

2674806, Dortmund may be the most interesting team to watch in Europe at the moment*
Posted by RandomFact, Sat Oct-06-18 05:12 PM
*even without the American.

A team mostly made up of young, hungry, unjaded, up and coming talent. A team outside of the top-10 in world spending. A team not run by oil money/regimes with horrible human rights records. Overall just a refreshing group to root for in a league that is at the very least 10x more compelling than Ligue 1.

They are very much worth a watch after the break.
2674859, wow @ the 3rd arsenal goal
Posted by dula dibiasi, Sun Oct-07-18 07:28 AM
