I work with quite a few diverpool fans.

they are currently insufferable.

therefore I am not looking at any Saints related news unless it is the story where we sign someone.

but I would just quite like to say that if Liverpool fail to get into the champions league next season or win anything I am going to laugh. a lot.

That is what the last two/three games are about; we build slowly and use peripheral figures. No Tadic, Ramirez or Davi today so difficultpointless to play full strength.

milton road says...

No Tadic, Morgan, Ramirez, Wanyama , Davis, Buroc or cough... Dijan. Then you will probably start seeing them once we go against Bournemouth and Brighton, if Morgan is back by then he is still on holiday for the moment.
Unlikely Chelsea have offered for Dijan, as JM has publicly stated he is not signing anyone else.
Good run out to see what the youngsters have got and seemed pretty comfortable. Give Koeman a good chance to gauge the weaknesses in his squad and the plus's.
Arsenal only won 2-0 to a none league club weekend, its the name of the game getting fit and trying out the young uns coming through to see who has what.
We need to strengthen the boss knows it, but its important he gets it right.
No Tadic, Morgan, Ramirez, Wanyama , Davis, Buroc or cough... Dijan. Then you will probably start seeing them once we go against Bournemouth and Brighton, if Morgan is back by then he is still on holiday for the moment. Unlikely Chelsea have offered for Dijan, as JM has publicly stated he is not signing anyone else. Good run out to see what the youngsters have got and seemed pretty comfortable. Give Koeman a good chance to gauge the weaknesses in his squad and the plus's. Arsenal only won 2-0 to a none league club weekend, its the name of the game getting fit and trying out the young uns coming through to see who has what. We need to strengthen the boss knows it, but its important he gets it right. milton road
