    Pretty much the 2019 version of Michael Owen.

    I've never really had a Spanish team before but after last night in San Sebastian I'm all for Real Sausage Your Dad. Johnny Aldridge was the first ever non local to play for them too

    Just because he didn’t fit in at Barca doesn’t mean he won’t kill at at Utd. He seemed to do ok for us in the Prem. I wouldn’t have him back. I wouldn’t write him off.

    I'm rubbish at tables, it looks like Phil's time at Barca was pretty consistent with his time at Liverpool. I will need to have a serious look tomorrow to see what I'm missing..

    You need to take the stats from the 2016/17 column, the last full season he was busting a gut for us, and compare them to the last column (2018/19), his first full season for Barcelona.

    Would he be set up to succeed there? Also he was getting a little found out on his tendency to make space for the curled shot from the edge of the box.

    His biggest flaw for us was that he was a defense liability.  With our front 3 plus him, made us very soft centered, I think the same shit was raised at Barca, he is not good or capable enough to get the ball back.

    I wouldn’t entirely agree with this.

    With Allison, VVD & Fabinho in the team - Coutinho’s presence wouldn’t have affected us as much in terms of being soft-centered.

    If anything there’s a very good argument that the balance has swung too much towards solidity in Midfield - if you accept AOC’s injury affected presence & Keita’s inconsistent debut season.

    Let’s say we could get him back for £50mill. Would anyone have him back for that price??...
