Between Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United Liverpool has the best defence. Man Utd without Vidic is trash, Arsenal without Vermaelen is trash. Liverpool without Glen Johnson is actually better
Borg (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Liverpool have conceded 3 less goals than us, bravo. Meanwhile, you have less than HALF our goals. You have scored only 4/13 teams below you have scored LESS goals than Liverpool lol. It's been 5 seasons since Liverpool conceded less goals than United and we still finished above you. Pipe down please

Yea Borg you're right, but the original argument wasn't about goals scored, it was about defence. I'm a Liverpool fan and I'm extremely disappointed with our ability in the final third of the pitch this season. But I will say as you just stated, Liverpool has conceded 3 LESS goals that United. So yea you're right you will finish above us in the table, and hopefully (in my opinion at least) you will knock those rich bastards Man City off the top spot. But in terms of defence. I have to give it to Liverpool
Dacjazzy07 (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Liverpool without glen johnson is better? What are you smoking? He's just injury prone but he's a great attacker and a good defender

Arsenal without vermaelen is trash? We'd be trash without sagna, mertesacker, koscielny, AND vermaelen

96.- Euro 96 was the first time where 16 teams qualified for the finals instead of the previous 8. This was also the first time there had been a proper Quarter Final match at the finals of the tournament.
Borg (Manchester United) 2 years ago
What does "proper quarter final" mean?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Simply that previously with only 8 teams after the group phase the next matches would be semi finals. If the last group match was a deciding factor in the group this could be seen as an unofficial quarter-final

94.- No. of goals scored at European Championships finals matches involving Germany. They have also played (38) matches and scored (55) goals, more than any other team to have taken part.

90 + 4 was the dramatic last minute in which Sylvan Wiltord scored the equalising goals against Italy in the final of the European Championships in 2000, the game went to extra time and Trezeguet won it for France with a Golden Goal.

93.- Minute of the equalizing goal scored by legendary Austrian Ivica Vastic. His strike against Poland made history as it was Austria's 1st ever goal at the Euros and at 38 made him the oldest ever scorer

How about Gazza's Sombrero against Scotland in the Euro96 ?! A piece a beauty!

Guanda (Ajax) 1 year ago
No offense to you Dacjazzy07, but the ball traveled in a similar way, in no way is this a similar goal. First of all: This was the final of the Euro 88, obviously nerves etc. Play a big role, second: Van Basten didn' first control the ball, this was an amazing volley. Again no offense just voicing my opinion
