As a matter of fact, I'm lying down, StartingPrice. But fuck my old boots. Just fuck my old boots.
It's funny isn't it, Livermore has one decent game and all of a sudden he's a better option than a player who has been one of the main reasons we turned our season round after the first two games.
What perturbeth thee, Rupert :shrug:
I eventually got around to watching the Everton game, you know, and for the life of me I could not work out what it was about Livermore's performance that had people spilling their seed all over the shop.
last 6 games he's played could read as this.
For me he put in a very competent performance. In our defensive/ball-winning midfielder (whatever you want to call it) all I want is for them to hold their position well, win the ball back and just lay it off simply to one of our more creative players. He did all this pretty well from what I saw the other night. Its what Parker does very fucking well most weeks, I just didnt understand his advanced role yesterday, I have big love for the guy but its not really what he is suited to.
Mostly people have been saying he looks a bit jaded. So I can't accept your point.
When the opposition run at us in our own half, I could not tell you how many times Livermore backs off and does nothing. He's a big lad, I want to see him putting himself about.
I need to look at yesterday's game again but I have certainly seen Scott play incisive passes in the opposition's half. In fact, I think if superstar Modric's passing were more incisive, we would't see VDV dropping deep so often or Parker trying to take the bull by the horns.
i think Jake and Parker are the most similar players in the squad so the polarised opinions don't really add up. not surprised though!
Who would you rather have as the attacking midfielder Modric or Parker?
Parker is a workhorse with little football ability but a decent tackle and good leadership skills
Modric is a technical, creative player who always seems to find that extra bit of space for himself, which is useful in the opposition third.
That overtakes Dan Ashcroft as one of the worst things I have read about one of our players on this site. Ever.
Bugger my ancient footwear.
Modric is more comfortable on the ball-there's no doubt about it in my mind-but he's about as incisive as a butter knife and I think he's a big girl's blouse when there's defending to be done. I think he's most valuable in the middle third. Good at keeping the ball moving.
I am actually considering emailing Gary Neville (an outstanding pundit, in my opinion) to ask him why he thinks he's the best central midfielder in the PL.
what a load of shit. the post of a stubborn,jealous man. GTFO
Listen to you, you hypnotic slug.
What is it with you two? I disagree with you therefore, you sir, are a **** sir.
Be nice. Now kiss and make up. I mean it. On the lips.
You must have missed his thread about VDV? The Hypnotic Slug thread?
It all began when I called O'Horror a jumped up little shit.
Better than Parker apparently.
How we could do with him waddling around the place in a Spurs shirt right now.
I'haven't claimed to be a pro; neither real or imagined.
I did post a thread questioning whether Scott was any improvement on Jamie before he had played for us and in the light of his first half a dozen performances I admitted that he was an upgrade.
But I still have my reservations about just how good he is for the reasons stated.
Pavlyuchenko was our most effective striker for the two seasons prior to this in terms of goals/minutes on the pitch.
If he had the same amount of game time as Defoe he would have been close to 20 goals per season.
Much underated, has good movement, poor control and an excellent shot.
I have argued for Livermore for more than a season and he was many people's MOM. though not mine.
I have no axe to grind I just call it as I see it.
I'm not doing the Pav argument, I don't class what he does as 'football'. Unfortunately it's far too simplistic to do the whole 'yeah but minutes per goal' argument, and it's a far cry from using reasoned logic.
Very good of you to admit Parker was an upgrade on O'Hara although I've got to say more of a relief than anything else.
