    Yeah, I used to call him Squirtle when he first moved to Liverpool, decent nickname I think. Yeah, Lukaku is much more of a poacher or advanced forward type. Martial is a much more complete striker than Lukaku will ever be.

  2. Raven replied to the thread Scott McTominay | 2019/20 Performances.

    I think Pereira is a better technician, certainly has all the tools to be a very good player, but is struggling to get used to the pace of the league. Not all great players have world class technique, I mean I've had debates with people about who...

  3. Raven replied to the thread Anthony Martial | 2019/20 Performances.

    Yeah, it's funny though because I remember in his first game, all those years ago, he held off Squirtle (not sure how to spell it) really well and I was surprised because he didn't look particularly big. He just seems to know how to use his...

    Then you have people calling him lazy and a liability :houllier:

    That's a lovely bit of midfield play.

  6. Raven replied to the thread Victor Lindelöf | 2019/20 Performances.

    Good post. This defensive actions stat is so subjective it's ridiculous, totally dependent on the system and a players role. These stats dont work in a vacuum, all we can really see is that Lindelof is forming a good partnership with Maguire and...

    I think its been between Wan Bissaka and Martial for our best player over the first 2 games. Martial is showing exactly what he's about at CF and will only improve as he settles in the the position. Funnily enough, I think Martial was far more...

  8. Raven replied to the thread Angel Gomes | 2019/20 Performances.

    Gomes is very highly rated. Nicky Butt just took up a new role at the club which involves bridging the gap between the youth set up and the first team. Butt just mentioned 2 players in an interview talking about who will step up this season,...

  9. Raven replied to the thread Victor Lindelöf | 2019/20 Performances.

    I'm not sure why people are arguing that Lindelof isn't good enough. He's one of the first names on the team sheet in what now looks to be a fairly solid defence. The defense we have currently is good enough to win things with, it's our midfield...

    Played against Sheffield United today behind closed doors apparently. Won the match 3 - 1 with him, Greenwood and Perreira scoring. Ravel also played.

  11. Raven replied to the thread Angel Gomes | 2019/20 Performances.

    I didn't expect him to be involved against Chelsea or Wolves, I will be annoyed if he doesn't at least make the bench against Palace. Yesterday's game highlighted the fact that Lingard cannot play against low block defended, Gomes should be able...

    His hold up and link up play yesterday were exellent, he lost the ball a few times because he was working in an area of the pitch where there were 6 opposition players pretty much on top of him.

  13. Raven replied to the thread Paul Pogba | 2019/20 Performances.

    People throwing their toys out of the pram again. He was good yesterday, other than 15 minutes in the second half, we pretty much controlled the game, that's down to our defense and midfield.

  14. Raven replied to the thread Mason Greenwood | 2019/20 Performances.

    Left the subs far too late. Should have switched James for Greenwood around the 60th.
