    Son went off mid game. It's not comparable.

    I wasn't been critical. Just thought it was an interesting thought and I wouldn't put it past Jose.

    Players still have to be released to their country so they can assess their player for fitness.

    Can’t imagine they’d call him out during a pandemic though.

    Would the likes of Son have to travel across the world to be assessed normally? or would they have someone independently based in Europe to check that?

    No, but I do have a different theory.

    FIFA are going to order clubs to release all players to their national teams for the upcoming International Break. Clubs were probably going to ask players to not travel, out of fear of entering a new dressing room with a new bubble etc and also heightened risk associated with travel but FIFA are ensuring that all players do travel.

    So perhaps Spurs saying that Son has a small muscle injury so that he will not have to travel to Asia next week. Conveniently, he will heal just in time for the Spurs games after the International Break.

    I love a conspiracy theory, but Jose could have executed that plan at 65mns when they'd got a second. Can't see any manager taking off their top scorer when the game is still 1-0

    Yeah thats a fairly mad theory, why take him off at half time? Could have took him off at HT in the game last night instead or their EL game Thursday if he was going to do that

    Richarlison twisted his ankle and was subbed off.
    Straight down the tunnel without assistance.

    Allan pulled his groin.

    No prob.
    Podence named in the #POR squad. The #Wolves attacker was also seen in training today as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury.

    Could really do without this Lascelles injury.

    Trent trained alright, but there was rumours of 6 the other day. Mane is 1. Maybe Thiago 2? We'll find out tomorrow I guess.

    The PL said there were 10 positive cases on Monday - list of pool players not in squad for the cup game include:

    Allison
    Mane
    Thiago,
    Keita
    Henderson
    Bobby


    Most of them were pictured in training on Friday, so hard to know if there is anyone else or if the PL tests include staff?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,976 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*


    Ya possibly staff. Or even young players.

    There does seem to be a lot of rumours regarding Liverpool in general so it's hard to know which ones to believe. For example I remember one about Robertson missus going into labour pre Man City a couple seasons ago and that he would miss the game. He played the game but it turns out she was due to give birth, so a half truth.

    There was a lot of rumours around Thiago & Alisson before the Arsenal game, that they had Covid and not muscle injuries and again, they have-turned out to be true. Alisson was roommates with Thiago for the Chelsea game so that is why both had extra tests to the normal PL ones. Thiago had it and Alisson didn't, hence why he played.

    But the city of Liverpool as a whole is under pressure now with covid.

    Sterling out of Internationals "injured"

    5 /irish out of todays game with Covid related issues. No names yet but I suppose Doherty/Egan/Stevens/McCarthy/Hendrick/Robinson may have small ownership

    May see a lot of people thinking of shipping him out


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,812 ✭✭✭✭ShaneU


    Last time I transferred KDB out before an Arsenal game he scored 19 points


  • Registered Users Posts: 143 ✭✭Ros1234


    I did the same last season, cost me a monthly prise in all! I got him back in the following week and held onto for the rest of the season, although I captained him the last 2 weeks so he's due a haul!

    Quite a lot will transfer him out not just caused he's flagged, but also because City were out of sorts prior to the break, there are a lot of players returning points this season, and gotta wonder how long the masses will give KdB - city's upcoming games aren't great on paper.

    His price dropping even makes it worse - because those who have moved on, will be able to get him back in possibly cheaper.
