how? he did JACK SHIT are you blind


gervinho btw = VERY VERY GOOD singing for arsenal, he has fucking light feet. he reminds me of weah in the way that he runs. he can go 2 meters up and noone can catch him, his feet are just amazingly light. barton is a criminal on the other hand and capello has him spot on

Liverpool and Arsenal both proved today that they are not good enough for the top 3. But that was known already. It will be a very tight no.4 contest between the two. Or maybe Spurs could complicate it.

Charlie Adam had a good first half, but was terrible in the second. Carroll and Suarez are NOT forwards to be played together. I still have no idea why Dalglish sacrificed the superb combination they (accidentally) came up with, when Carroll was injured last season. They were playing some very neat football then. They either need to pick Carroll as the focal point and play an EPL-style 4-4-2, or they need to play around Suarez in a 4-3-3.

As for Arsenal, rather hopeless. Gervinho has the talent, but not enough to replace Nasri IMO. RvP remains their only hope, but even he needs good service.

I'm not sure Suarez and Carroll can't play together. I think a 2 striker system suits suarez and caroll. You all make it sound like Caroll is just a heading pole, he's actually decent link up player, has room for improvement.

I think of the 3-0 win over city where they both played well. It's going to take some time/adjustment.

Let's be fair, how many games have they really played? No real preseasons or training camps either..

They "could" develop a good partnership, of course. But from what I've seen so far, I doubt it. I know that my sample is small.

Actually, it has less to do with the two of them and more to do with English playing styles. They are treating Carroll like a heading pole, thereby rendering Suarez pointless. If the system is good, they can probably combine well.

i'm still not sure how much of this is down to Caroll being basically injured and not training majority of his time with liverpool. He's not a fully developed player yet eitheR (where as suarez is) so it'll take him longer to fit.

I see what you're saying but if they use Caroll to lead line and give Suarez the free role around him it could work.

Spot on .First half, everytime Adam got the ball ,lumped it onto Carrol/space in front of Carrol ........I think a 4-3-3 could suit both best

-Whiner/Kuyt------------Downing-

---Adam/Aquil/Hend-----------Meireles/SG---

Carrol just looks awful technically. Everything looks awkward and a challenge. 35 million for a young John Carew.

Tbh only thing I've got to say is that I think the Liverpool scouts must have seen something in Caroll... Cause you don't pay that amount of money for a guy with 10 EPL goals, without knowing what you're getting. He's the most expensive player English player ever btw. He needs to be almost as good as Shearer to be considered a success, and btw I could totally see him becoming a new Shearer, although as of now I remain sceptical.

I'm too old to hate on clubs, although united do piss me off, but you must admire their winning mentality/foundation

I'm going to reserve my "bursts of anger" at the Milan players when they flop instead of hating on other clubs



Forza Rooney + Young + Nani

who's your captain? I'd go with Nani, most consistent end product in the league despite inconsitent performances, the stats do not lie - certainly not in a stats game like FF

EA Sports, true to form, has ruined FPL. I used to enjoy looking at the live points updates as matches were going on, but now the idiots update only at e-o-d.

Also, the engine was down for about 15 hours before the matches started - a lot of my competitors in another league couldn't change their team. Thankfully I was jobless on Friday morning
