    Or in other words he got a few IF’s on Fifa a year back 😂

    Probably the most fun card I've used since playing FUT. This card was too OP in a gold/silver mixed team, someone might call it because of handicap :trollface:

    It's telling that every time a twitter account wants to "show off" AWB, it's always TAA that he's compared to.

    Same happens with VVD too. We are incredibly blessed to have these "yardstick" footballers that others try to measure up against.

    In the modern game, I'd much rather have TAA's attacking ability at RB.

    Watching AWB against Chelsea and Wolves, he seems really clueless going forward, which is funny because it makes the lack of a quality RW an even bigger issue.

    If you want TAA because of his attacking ability, fine. I can understand that because he's excellent at it. But that second comment is laughably wrong. It's an annoyingly common misconception that he's poor at attacking because he really isn't.

    Outstanding defensively, solid enough going forward, I'd rather have AWB all day long, but we're both biased.

    If you're talking yardstick footballers, then de Gea and Pogba are the "yardsticks" that keepers and midfielders constantly get compared to so I'm sure you cede they're the best in their positions :tongue:

    That's because people, be it liverpool fans or not rave about how great they are, so comparing our players to yours is more of a... people think their players are good, so how do ours compare.... or potentially it's a... you lot brag about how good they are, so comparing us & seeing them better in aspects is telling about how bias fans can be, be it you lot for saying Trent is better due to attacking or us for saying AWB for defending etc.

    I remember when De gea started having his mistakes & people were saying how better Alisson was compared to De gea... so yeah, you're right. ;)

    KDB or Kante depending on midfield style.

    100% DDG is the yardstick for GKs to be measured by even if he has been out of it

    VVD and Robertson are your two players at the level that people want to compare contenders to them. Those two are the best in their positions imo.

    You insist on overrating the rest of your players though. I'm not saying they're bad, far from it. Most are still great players but clearly fall short of the level of those two.

    TAA was arguably the best RB in the world coming into this season so I'll give him that too.

    I have rarely seen comparisons against De Bruyne. I know I've seen Pogba get compared to players almost daily, whether that be today's mids, or players like Gerrard, or Lampard. Unfair, really.

    Hopefully they'll agree to take on a bigger proportion of his wages. But if they won't, Ed and Judge should just take the current deal of 50%. Just get him out.

    I'm sorry, what?

    Our squad is filled with extremely good players at the moment.

    Alisson, Robertson, VVD, TAA, Fabinho, Firmino, Salah and Mane.

    I’d agree about VVD and Robertson.

    Mane is probably top two as LW with Hazard still getting the edge. Firmino is tricky as no one really classifies him a ST, but I can’t think of a better CF in the world. He really defines that role. Messi will always be the best RW, but Salah is easily second with his last few years.

    I’d say Fabinho has made a solid claim as CDM too, but wouldn’t say he’s a measuring stick. Alissons year last year (won the golden glove in 3 competitions) easily made him the stick coming into this year, but I’ve always rated De Gea so still have no issue with him being mentioned. Even as bad as last year was.

    Clearly didn't read the post. I didn't say they're bad. I even said they're great players. :D I was simply saying Robertson and VVD are at a level above the others.

    @Ahmer50x @Keano Someone else want to try explaining it to him about a lot of Liverpool fan's overjudgement of their players? I don't know how else to phrase it. Even if you want to throw TAA into the list Ahmer that's fine, the underlying point I mean. I'm not slating any of those players he mentioned, even called them great players. He's just nitpicking now.

    I didn't say they weren't. You've missed the point here completely, seems like you've picked up where you've left off where Liverpool's players are concerned in that regard. From @Wyojasond 's response it's clear he gets the topic being discussed. We're talking about measuring stick's for their positions. Robertson and VVD are. The other's aren't. That doesn't mean they're not great players, they undoubtedly are.

    Messi is not a RW. Salah is comfortably the world’s best RW.

    Salah
    Sterling
    Sancho

    Bale is also criminally underrated.

    What Apollo is trying to say is that VVD and Robbo are better in their positions than the others are in theirs.

    Think of it as VVD and Robbo being world class, with the others being in the league just below.

    To be fair why are players even deciding on the pitch? Ole should have the balls to say no Pogba, Rashford is the clubs penalty taker until further notice.

    I’m not sure why he doesn’t do that, maybe it is because of Paul’s ego?

    Personally feel it might be something to keep him sweet this season so we can focus on getting into the CL & then he can go, but Ole realises without Pogba our midfield is poor.

    I don't have against having 2-3 players taking penalties.
    As long as they are on similar level.
    Just that Pogba isn't on Martial and Rashford's lvl when it comes to pens plus that they are goalscorers and he is not.

    Who’s to say he’s not already decided that?
    Rashford picked up the ball as if he’s the no1 choice, but then gave it to Pogba to take because ultimately he earned it. That’s not even an uncommon thing to do, happens quite a bit.

    It’s like someone said, it wasn’t even a poorly taken PK, it was more a great save. If it had gone in, this thread would be about 2 pages less...
