It just seems like yesterday to me, when David O'Leary had you blokes in the C/L Semi Finals.

That day Dukes snaffled 4 against the Pool, to beat em 4-3 single-handedly will live forever in my memory....Good times.

Cheers for Cantona by the way....We owe youse one; So enjoy.

To be fair, Hazard is asking for criticism with his behaviour. You can't turn up at your new club being 5 kg overweight after they paid all that money for you, and then arrive unfit again the 2nd season, after a really underwhelming first season. On top of that, he joined the Belgian training camp for their nations league games earlier this month, but didn't play because he wasn't fit. Why doesn't he go back to Madrid then where his teammates are in full preparation for the new season? From what I heard, these national team training sessions are more about tactics and group cohesion - he could've easily skipped them. Courtois came over for 3 days and then flew back to Madrid, to prepare for the start of la liga.

Hazard is a fantastic guy, loved by everyone who knows him, but he's missing the mentality to get the very best out of his potential.

Was going to say that he should have learnt from his mistakes last season, especially when he publically recognised that he wasn't up to standard.

Pretty sure Hazard always came back a bit fat from holidays and it took him a few games to lose it.

Hes never had that killer instinct to be the best, hes admit that a few times. Happy to just play his part, but thats not what Madrid want.

I haven’t even watched Being Liverpool, let alone the City, Sunderland or Spurs shows. I really need to catch up. Also the Gerrard and Torres ones on Amazon too...

Probably because Spurs didn't get relegated.
And because Sunderland didn't have the level of creative control because they were more desperate for money. 9 eps or our season delivered 1 or 2 genuine can't look away moments
