I could maybe understand the rationale behind starting that lineup, but when you go into the halftime break one down, why not bring on fabinho & shaqiri to start the second half?


#586

I suppose he thought he needed to control the midfield, but we barely got a sniff with wasting Gini on the wing.


#587

Klopp only makes a change at half time if it’s REALLY bad and we are being overrun. This season he has been much better with this but he usually takes forever to make a change, and then often that change is a weird one.

The midfield did not do its job but we were only 1-0 down so I guess he thought we could improve. Which we did, but only after Fabinho came on lol.


#588

Huh. Word is Clyne is going out on loan because that Ajax youngster we got whose name I could not spell for the life of me is considered sufficient cover (along with Milner, Gomez when he comes back, & Fabinho if needed tho it would probably be a waste of his talent).


#589

Fab played RB for a while when he won the league in 16/17 with Monaco, he’s got fullback chops


#590

Yeah not doubting he can do the job, just reckon we need him more in midfield.


#591

Oh big time, he should have started last night, he’s been phenomenal the last few games


#592

Hmm I actually like Clyne defensively quite a bit, that would be a shame, but if he wants minutes I guess we can’t stop him.

EDIT: well well well, interesting


#593

Solanke to Bournemouth is pretty cool. Hope it works out for him.Wonder if the Callum Wilson to Chelsea rumors are real?


#594

That’s a tidy profit for someone who signed for us on a free and he likely wasn’t going to see any first team time behind Sturridge & Origi barring deep injury trouble. We still have Rhian Brewster, Bobby Duncan, & Paul Glatzel as strikers in the pipeline as far as youth goes so not too worried there.

Oops, I meant to say Ki-Jana Hoever, a 16 year old Dutch baby who only joined in September.

Yoooo he was gooood!

I’m a Chelsea fan, changed on a whim from Arsenal as a friend was paying for my tattoo and I liked the logo better. I watch or listen to pretty much anything about the game (at one time I listened to six separate podcasts a week) and don’t really hate any other team but just try enjoy what’s on.

But you might like to know that the parents of a West Ham mascot, having paid £700 for an experience that also includes a training session with community coaching staff, are then required to fork out £80 for a club kit in which the child can trot out on to the pitch alongside a player.

YIKES

Wow, Petr Cech retiring at the end of the season.
