The criticism of Liverpool.

November 8, 2017

The criticism of Liverpool often goes something like this:

The goalkeepers aren’t good enough.
The full backs aren’t good enough.
The centre halves aren’t good enough.
There’s not enough creativity in central midfield.
They don’t have an out and out striker.

Klopp should be doing better than what he is.

Are you a tall Scot?

October 11, 2017

With Scotland’s failures to reach major tournaments down to genetics (they are too small in stature) should football have some sort of classification system like the Paralympics.

Or perhaps the Scots could engage in a breeding initiative with the Dutch ( a tall nation). Maybe Nicola Sturgeon should test this idea with the Scottish people, she may find it’s more popular than Independence.

Feel free to let me know if you are a tall Scot. You can contact me via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev.

An absent manager.

September 12, 2017

Rafa Benitez missed Newcastle’s win over Swansea whilst recovering from surgery. A manager missing a game is pretty rare but it does happen. Having said this I do remember Rafa missing a game as Liverpool manager after an operation for gallstones.

It does beg the question, which Premier League manager has missed the most games that their team were taking part in? I must confess I don’t have the answer. You can give your suggestions via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev

In solidarity with Frank.

September 11, 2017

I have a fair amount of sympathy for Frank de Boer, not only has he been sacked by Crystal Palace after 4 games, he’s likely to be replaced by Roy Hodgson. No one wants that on their CV.

I don’t know if Frank is married but if he is I hope his wife didn’t give up her job to join him in London or he might have had an awkward conversation earlier today.

In solidarity with Frank, when have you moved country for a job only for it to rapidly unravel? You can contact me via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev

Remainer

September 6, 2017

This transfer window was shaped by players that didn’t move as much as it was by those that did. I’m thinking of Coutinho, Van Djik, Costa, Sanchez. These players probably thought their actions (or inactions) would have got them a move away from their clubs.

With this in mind, when have you told people you were leaving your job only for you to remain?

Wafford FC

August 22, 2017

I was looking at the stats for this blog and it appears that the most popular day came after I tweeted a link where I accidentally used #Waffordfc not #Watfordfc. Does this mean the key to online success is misspelling?

Financial Inducement.

August 16, 2017

My one year boy has just started taking his first tentative steps. He is however good at kicking a ball (both feet). He does go down a little easily although that might be seen as an advantage to some clubs. With this in mind I was wondering what’s the earliest age Premier League clubs offer parents a ‘financial inducement’ to join their academy. The sooner the better from my perspective.

More Harry the Hornet?

August 14, 2017

I was looking at the stats of my football blog (because analysis is the key to success) and the most popular post this year was to do with Harry the Hornet. Who knew this was what football fans wanted to read about??

Now my management team want me to write more stuff about Harry the Hornet. The only problem is I’ve more than exhausted my interest in Harry the Hornet. What to do?

How do you hand in a transfer request?

August 12, 2017

Anyone know how to hand in a transfer request? I only ask after Philippe Coutinho sent his by email.
Firstly, email strikes me as being an old skool method of communication.
Secondly, who did he send it to? The owners? Klopp? or HR?
Did he cobble together a letter or are there templates for this kind of thing?

So many questions. Should you be able to answer any of them you can let me know via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev

What’s the 2nd best moment of the Premier League?

August 11, 2017

The Premier League is 25 yrs old. What to get the entity that has everything (apart from the best players in the world)?

If we agree that Aguer-oooooo was the greatest moment of the Premier League era, what is the second best? Ps. If you say Gerrard’s slip you’re a sick pervert.
