I think Zomb's crusade against Pierre is rivalling Sammy's crusade against Harry as one of the most embarrassingly shit takes in all of the forum for the past year. Incredible amounts of inactive brain cells.

He’s one of the key reasons I have no doubts they will get raped by England. Jumped up clogger

The problem with Hojberg is that I just don't see what he does well.

He doesn't pass well, he doesn't protect the centre halves well, he's not athletic, he is a trier and gets about the pitch, but he's not a stand out player. A definite upgrade from Winks and Sissoko, but that's about it.

No doubt we'll get plenty of stats about "tackles" and "pressures" and "xG" and "H20" and shit.
 
Can we get that kid Damsgaurd is it? To sign whilst he is there. Perfect Lamela up grade.
We we're linked with him in February so I went out of my way to watch him and he was often anonymous for Sampdoria. Shunted out on the left wing mostly, obviously looked a talented player, but really didn't think he had this level of performance in him. In a more dynamic, athletic and talented team with movement around him and playing in a role with more freedom he really looks to have something special.

I think he'll cost around 30m after the Euro's though.

See, you can say those things but it doesn't make them true. All tournament he's passed well, he's pressed well, he's got around the pitch at a good pace and made it hard for the other team to play. I don't know how people think he isn't athletic, he's a fairly strong and forceful athlete with decent pace. He whiffs on some tackles and oversells himself at times. He skews his passes on occasion. He's not elite at much, but he's a good all-round PL midfielder, and has an exceptional attitude.

He was great for us in games last season, poor in games as well. Very poor for stretches after January. But I'm willing to apply a Jose tax to my assessment of several players last season. We were a poorly coached team and I think that'll show over the next few months.

Liverpool looking around £45million for him

Probably best you stop watching football if you fail to see what he does well.

Absolute nonsense post.
