Somebody needs to tell the models for this brand that they're promoting a racially offensive word:

Probably also gender offensive these days as well!

Doesn't this look a bit too similar to the nazi eagle for comfort?

I bought a few 'Oliphil' ( some Toulouse rugby player brand) polo-shirts, the name, that were on sale and reduced from 80€ to about 30€.

I wore them twice and they look like I've mopped the floor, washed the windows and buffed the car with them. Imagine having paid full price for them. Egg-chasing wanker swizz rip-off togs!

Boy were selling these t-shirts down on the Kings Road in the 70's. Nothing new. I am surprised people are still buying them.

Although Gerrard mentioned adding another midfielder to the squad to compete, Ramsey plays a key role in our midfield with what he brings

SG will play Ramsey and other younger players like Chukwuemeka if they are deemed deserving and the best players (as demonstrated in training, attitude, and in games).
It will be intriguing to watch the competition for starting positions in the midfield since I only see Jacob Ramsey getting better this season.

At the start of season, Ramsey would be in my starting eleven.

Absolutely. As things stand he's our best midfielder. He tailed off a bit in the second half of last season, but that's natural for a youngster.

I wonder if Gerrard will try something like this:

         Martinez
Cash Carlos Mings Digne
         Kamara
Buendia             Ramsey
Bailey  Watkins  Coutinho

In a lot of games you probably want 2 centre midfielders to slot in and cover the space that the fullbacks have left behind them when they push forward so you need 2 DM's in a lot of games. It's only when someone plays a low press against you when you can probably get away with just 1.

Buendia             Ramsey
Bailey  Watkins  Coutinho
If all are fit and in-form, this is a strong side. I am a Bailey-doubter and would prefer to see McGinn on the right, with Buendia and Cash. However, Bailey is undoubtedly an asset if he can find the form he promises.
Like OCD, I believe we need to bring in another CMF either to pair with Kamara or to cover for him.

I agree, I have deep reservations about Bailey, but we'll need his pace as otherwise it's all a bit samey in midfield and up front. Hopefully the mythical "full pre-season" will get him up to where he needs to be.

Whichever way you look it we do now have an embarrassment of riches.  I keep thinking we need a couple more signings but when you see that side on paper knowing who is in reserve you have got say we shouldn’t have any excuses

I agree with what’s been said about Foden. A real talent but will be be allowed to show that maverick style under Guardiola? There’s no doubt Grealish is being turned into a different player but the press will tell you he’s being turned into a “better player.”
I’d rather watch the likes of Ramsey and Archer etc proposer at a proper club where they can express themselves than watch “Pep ball” every week.

Great interview, two smashing lads.

Come across as very humble and aware that they both need and  want to keep getting better and to help each other to do so. Both realise that they've still got a lot to learn and have aspects of their game that they need to improve on and really appreciated being out on loan.
