Yes the betting??

Is their a championship ticket this season??

Season ticket for quarter finals onwards.

As normal betting prices probably only released a day or so before games begin.

For a centre back I disagree.
He will learn as get goes for the first few games, but much like TAA will drop a few clangers over the next couple of seasons as the experience grows. 
Midfielders and strikers don't have the same requirement for maturity, someone is covering their backs...

So be it - you aren’t any worse off than sticking with Lovren in that case. As he will certainly drop a few clangers as well. The difference being that’s him at the peak of his game.

You win nothing in pre season, but they are a lot of fun to watch.
Lovren's performance this year will make or break that team. Joe Gomez is still too young to play full time alongside VVD, but elsewhere there's a strength that I haven't seen in a long time and fun, that's a good team to watch.

No such thing as too young I’m afraid. If you’re good enough you’re old enough. Mbappe is 19...

Gomez could play alongside VVD easily, it’s the only way he will learn too.

Poacher/Mulholland seems to be gathering pace

By gathering pace do you mean the one article which was obviously a journalist looking for a headline has been shared in numerous places?

Not a bad mix making up the selection committee most know a bit about football with the exception of one man on it. Would the general public be happy with Mulholland?
As I've said before, winning the intermediate championship with Rostrevor wouldn't be evidence on any great managerial skills. I think we need someone with a bigger rep who will attract all the best players back to the county team

It’s more than Eamon Burns had won!!

That's a strange attitude trilleac is a squad not what Liverpool have been lacking?

Not really no. We were lucky with injuries this year and had little need for depth in the squad. Most guys played a lot, didn’t get injured and held their form. If you ask me out real priorities it’s 1. 1st Choice Keeper 2. 1st choice Centre half 3. Add sub midfielder and sub striker.

We’d a huge squad when Klopp took over and after his 1st year he gutted it, a bloated squad of half interested prima-donna is of f**k all use to anyone and I think Klopp realises that. What you risk in terms of decimation by injury with a small squad you gain in a increased sense of camadarie and togetherness in the dressing room.

“Squad depth” is a buzz word I find used as a lazy analysis of why teams fail rather than getting to the root of the problem. A strong first 11 is better complimented by young, hungry if yet unproven group of subs who’ll do what the manager wants rather than a slew of highly talented misfits sitting on fat salaries.

Uniteds glory years had at best a mid rate replacement side. Park, Smith, Fletcher,, Macheda, Saha, Anderson, Nani were all highly effective players off the bench at united who were found out as Bog standard hack merchants when moved further afield. United now have a star-studded, astronomically expensive bench who are probably less effective than the mid rate guys of 10 years ago.

Couldn’t disagree more.

Squad depth is essential to mount a sustained challenge for honours on all fronts. Any team who has won and/or consistently been challenging for league titles have had at least 2 or 3 players on their bench every game capable of starting or who are equally as good as some of the players in the starting xi. Squad quality rather than just depth is what Liverpool have been missing. Chelsea, Utd, Arsenal, City have all had this when competing at the top table.

UTD and Arsenal are at the top table but they aren't competing. Leicester won the PL with a good solid group of players, a star-studded bench is not a pre-requisite for PL success. Yes it is for wider, more prolonged involvement in several competitions at once but I want the PL above all else.

You have misread or misunderstood my post. When Utd and Arsenal were competing at the top table, as in when they were winning or challenging for titles. I’m not talking about now. I also mentioned consistently competing for titles. Leicester was a once off freak in more ways than one - where have they been since? That’s also one out of 28 seasons?! So as stated to consistently compete you need a good squad. I agree I want the PL too but I don’t want it once and then fade away like Leicester, or Blackburn. To compete and win consistently clearly takes huge quality throughout a squad.

The top dogs will be there because no one else wants it. Not enough administrators taking up posts in clubs never mind county. Too many keyboard warriors and pub slabbers in Down who yap about clubs and county but are not even GAA members.

He’s actually not far wrong to be fair.

Wouldn’t be taking an English keeper. Too much hype and build up only to be let hang if they make a mistake.
