    Yeah - Was going to say that the transfer window has closed now so surely you can't sign Cahill? Unless the rule IRL works in-game in that you can actually sign free agents anytime throughout the season. If so, saturn did his work well

    Good point there, very surprised you didn't manage a shot at all! Glad Fekir is only out for a week and not more.

    If we can't sign him until the summer (when he will be almost 36) there is little point, is there? By then we will have enough money again and there is little wrong with our defence as is

    Yeah - weird as I thought a free transfer could join at any time but doesn't seem to be the case under Saturn patch

    What a weird game from your team - no shots! But my word - the defence AGAIN steps up

    Obvs hope you get smashed at Anfield

    Ha! If we can keep a clean sheet again we will celebrate and not bother signing Marshall - unless he can join the club immediately.

    Rovers hold Liverpool to stalemate as well

    On Saturday 8th February we played Liverpool at Anfield, again without six of our regular first team players (Besic, Mahrez, Fekir, Flanagan, Akpoguma and Nyambe) but even with six subs we managed to hold the Reds to stalemate, just as we held Spurs to stalemate at Ewood Park.

    Like Tottenham they outplayed us, but with the help of our impressive defence Steele kept a yet another clean sheet. So that's three clean sheets in a row, and all three of them against Big Six clubs!



    Liverpool were the attacking team and Morata and Henderson attempted several shots on goal, but Steele showed safe hands. Still, it seemed only a matter of time before Liverpool would score the opener.

    In the second half we brought on Ben Marshall for Henley, because of the latter's yellow card, and Liverpool created several more scoring opportunities, but just like in the first half they failed to find the net. Our defence was water-tight again and they never gave our opponents much time or much space.

    We began to become more hopeful now and with 25 minutes remaining we brought on Chirivella for Grimes, but again Chirivella was almost invisible so that change made no difference whatsoever.

    And just like against Spurs in this match the final minutes were extremely tense as well. With just a couple of minutes remaining Henderson ran up against the challenge of Lens, who made a very reckless challenge. He went in with two feet on Henderson and promptly received the red card!

    And Liverpool almost won the match when Grujic hit the ball towards Roberto Firmino in the area and the Liverpool striker shot on the volley, but Steele did well to parry it and so denied Roberto Firmino a great goal!

    So we gained another important point against one of the better teams! Somehow we seem to be at our best when under pressure! Even Jason Lowe, who left us on a Bosman just two years ago, was playing fantastically!
    Spoiler!

    Now the draw, fantastic as it was, does mean that we dropped to fourth place. Having said that, Chelsea lost to Spurs at White Hart Lane so it's still a very close title race!


    Spoiler!

    For most of the clubs there will be a two-week break now, only there is no rest for us as we have to play our game in hand against Newcastle, plus both of our Cup matches as well.

    Henley will be unavailable for the League match against Newcastle, but he should be available again when we have to play our two Cup matches.



    Lens, on the other hand, will most likely not be available for any of these games after his red card today.

    You can almost feel a game coming up in which you'll have the better chances, but not take the full three points. Let's just hope I'm really bad at predicting such things!

    Oof, another suspended player (two!). When was the last time you had an entire squad to choose from?

    Great point though

    Ages ago! But it's worse than ever now, I think.

    I am flummoxed by how good your defence is

    Completey outplayed at fortress Anfield

    League is brilliant - hardly any points between top and 7th!

    Gary Cahill remains without club

    Gary Cahill is certainly still a much sought-after player, even at age 35. But nowadays it's the modest clubs that want to sign the defender who was once the vice-captain of England. And preferably on a free transfer...



    Interestingly Cahill opted for Blackburn Rovers!



    However, we wanted him now. Not next season!
