  1. Re: New User Interface [beta] And is it just me or does this new version seem SOOOOOOOOOO much more Rigid and Constricting. It's not pleasant to use at all. There is nothing seamless or effortless or intuitive about it. I have a feeling that the Display Advertising is the main reason for these changes. That SM wanted more Ad real estate further up on the left hand of the pages. Well they got it... and in turn decreased the productivity on here for every User. EDIT: And I shudder to think what this is SM experience is going to be like on my iPhone and Android devices.
  2. Re: New User Interface [beta] Did the developers even bother testing these changes out in terms of USER PRODUCTIVITY...? The easy answer is a resounding NO, because if they did they would have quickly realized that they have increased the number of clicks per session exponentially. I'll give one example area... MESSAGES. Historical Messages: First off it is entirely bad enough that they have deleted most of the historical club messages that many of us were keeping (now limiting it to 2 measly weeks), but the time and effort required to wade through the various messages is now
  3. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Downing Wouldn't you guys rather that money be spent on a top Academy name ? I know I certainly would. For every dollar that they are thinking about spending on second-rate topped-out Ingerlish players who have already hit their full potential, I'd rather them take that same money and bank it on some 17 year old Spanish academy product. CBs Regardless what else we improve... I am excited to see who Comolli is going to bring in @ CB to partner with Ayala next year. I continue to fully believe that we are going to buy someone in this Transfer Window who is
  4. Re: NFL Predict Good luck this weekend everyone...

  7. Re: ONYEWU, Oguchi Onyewu sent out on loan to FC Twente until the end of the season. Today's Milan Press Release.... Short and Sweet A.C. Milan announces sending OGUCHIALU CHIJOKE ONYEWU to F.C Twente on a loan deal, which includes the option of buying the player at the end of the season. Introductory Video Link to a video put together by Twente's marketing department. HERE. I actually like the champagne toast. Salary No details on how much of his salary Twente are picking up; however considering that he is paid €60K per week, I would gather to bet that they are picking up v
  8. Re: Howard webb I'm with Andy on this one... (and I'm a Red). As I see it the guy is in an impossible situation anymore (and the players need to realize this). This WC Final reached more people than ever before. And the ratings on this one were going to set-up the media dollars spent on the next one. Most everyone should recognize this, because I can assure you that Blatter and his cronies who are lining their pockets certainly do. You cannot tell me that Blatter or Platini or some other executive didn't impress upon Howard Webb before the WC Final that EVERYONE was hoping for a
  9. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Derby on Sunday Am stoked to see the place on fire this coming Sunday. Absolutely-f-ing-stoked...! The place is going to be dripping Red with banners and flags and scarves. I am completely envious of those of you who are going to be here. Completely envious... and excited for you. Can't wait to see the look on Henry's & Werner's & Linda's faces when they get to experience that particular environment for the first time. The place is going to be on absolute FIRE...! Trying to Read the CEO Tea Leaves..... Ian Ayre One of the more interes
  10. Re: Official Liverpool Thread It should be pretty obvious to all that @ the top Clubs it takes 2 days of agent/attorney negotiations to get a manager out. This was the correct move and one that IMO Henry/Comolli/NESV knew they were going to make. It will also prove to be the easiest decision that they will have to make all year. Personally I am intrigued by all the backroom negotiations that we aren't hearing about and aren't going to be privy to. Not so much with Hodgson's contract, but more so with the managers that Comolli is thinking about bringing on board. They could have easily na
  11. Re: Official Liverpool Thread It's too bad you guys didn't make a stand-alone thread about the What-Players-Would-Make-Which-Teams stuff. Seems like there were some decent thoughts in there. Shame it's going to get lost on this thread and dismissed as nothing more than trolling.
  12. Re: Official Liverpool Thread It just people taking the pisss. Gotta get their kicks in now 'cause it's not going to be this way much longer. EDIT: And for what it's worth, I hope someone removes that "Hodgson Out" graffiti from Melwood. That's over-the-line and not what I expect from 99% of our supporters
  13. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Good shout... He'd be a fantastic fit. or even Rangnick. The Prem is a better place with managers like Jol in it.
  14. Re: Official Liverpool Thread I think this is a fair point, even if it is for a few weeks. I get the sense that even as long ago as when Comolli came in that NESV were going to replace him during this transfer window, but that they may have to move a little sooner than they anticipated. I have been reading on a few other forums that the supporters are now questioning Henry, Comolli & NESV and their ability to understand Sports. In a word that's "ridiculous". I can understand why people are saying this... (1) Everyone including Paul Konchesky's dear ol' mum knows that Hodgson is a

  16. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Considering that not much is going to go on this thread for a little while outside of inventing new swear words to biitch about Hodgson opposing fans taking a swipe people killing Konchesky people starting to complain about Henry/NESV and throwing out stuff like they don't understand English football (i.e. "They don't have a clue", etc...) ... I'll gladly take the other side of that argument about Adebayor. Let's see how daft I really am... Let's hear your argument for us signing him. Hopefully it's a bit more than "he knows how to stick the

  18. Re: Official Liverpool Thread I feel badly for the Reds who traveled to the game. I'm sure they'll do us proud, but I gotta feel for them. Will be interested in reading some stories from the lads who made the trek.
  19. Re: NFL Predict Happy New Year everyone... Completely unpredictable week, so with some completely unpredictable picks, I present the following : Panthers @ Falcons Bengals @ Ravens Steelers @ Browns Vikings @ Lions Raiders @ Chiefs Dolphins @ Patriots Bucs @ Saints Bills @ Jets Chargers @ Broncos Bears @ Packers Jaguars @ Texans Titans @ Colts Cowboys @ Eagles Cardinals @ 49ers Giants @ Redskins Rams @ Seahawks (39)
  20. Re: Official Liverpool Thread The way that I see this is that most of us other than that "Camp 1" that I described a post earlier' date=' we were all willing to give Hodgson a fair shake regardless whether or not we thought he was qualified for the job. [b']And for the most part I believe that many people did indeed give him a very VERY fair shake.[/b] Keep in mind it wasn't the fans or Henry who said that we should only start judging Roy after 10 games, it was Hodgson himself who said this. The results didn't go his way, so then in October he publicaly moved the time-frame t
  21. Re: Official Liverpool Thread IMO Burs has this one right. The support of the manager has to be earned @ this club. The real question is whether or not Hodgson could have possibly had that support regardless if the results weren't there. And for that answer there are 6 current Camps: Camp 1 (currently 5% of LFC fans): always saw Hodgson as the last remaining vestige of the Hicks/GG reign and were NEVER going to give him his due regardless of the results/tactics Camp 2 (currently 1% of LFC fans): believe that the Hodgson should have their support because they see the
  22. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Dreadful match, but really happy that we came away with the 3 points. A couple of random +/- thoughts on the match (via tv): Is it me or did Roy start all of the players that the fans have been clamoring for all along ? Why didn't Gerrard start? Just curious if anyone has an idea.. For one of the few times over the past 18 months, SG played better than average (let alone better than sub-par). Holy smokes... We can actually carry the ball out of the back... Fancy that ...! Crowd seemed to be loving Agger. Great battle with Davies. Aur
  23. Re: NFL Predict I hope that everyone is doing it up this week. It's a cryin' shame there is no football in NYC today. Just started snowing. Expecting 14-24 inches of snow today with winds of 20-40 mph. Panthers @ Steelers Cowboys @ Cardinals Patriots @ Bills VyMBPDch9As Jets @ Bears Ravens @ Browns Redskins @ Jaguars - MJD is officially out. Not sure what I'm thinking with this pick Titans @ Chiefs - KC 6-0 @ home Lions @ Dolphins - I actually think Detroit has something to play for 49ers @ Rams - Bradford last 3 games 0 TDs and 5 INTs ; Niners are probably a
