    • To be honest, I was buzzing off him yesterday. He was almost in tears. It was funny as fuck. Carragher and his whole neutrality schtick annoys me more than Tyler.
    • Did Mascherano ever perform for us to the level Fab is showing now? Always thought he was a big overrated. Excellent defensivel, but a limited footballer. 
    • In his interview after losing and being baited for having a shit team he said something like “I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else or doing this with anyone else”. That’s like a proper delusional response. He’s so in awe and knows he punching above his weight. 
    • Since you ask, I don't have anything to go on except the image, if it is considered offensive and Bernardo Silva has shared it to racially offend (I guess implicitly) the other player then yes, but as I say, don't know anything about it and they are both not British, so between them, it may be slightly different rules. As it is happening in public, "banter" using racial stereotypes is a no-no (unless the recipient is from a competitor (historically or predominantly seen as) white nation like French German, Russian, American etc. then it seems to be fair game) If Mendy has a problem with it, absolutely.    Closer to what I was saying in the other thread would be if the other guy (Mendy? He's French, right?) may have adopted this character as his own "mascot" (let's say it's from a well known French comic strip or a cartoon) so B Silva is using it with the full knowledge the other player won't be offended, or if Mendy himself shared it and B Silva is now offended by how a black player is depicting himself and the HR stepped in to tell him he's not allowed to do it (Mendy, not BS). That would be, in my view ridiculous, although, it was public and they are footballers under the media spotlight and implicitly representing their club so again, different rules may apply.
    • I'm not really bothered about his perceived bias, it's subjective- he can be as biased as he wants, it makes no difference to how the team performs.   It's the droning, rambling bullshit he constantly spews that really grates though. Endless pompous nonsense about tenuous coincidences, boring trivia, obviously pre-rehearsed 'talking points' and attempts to whip up some excitement when there really isn't anything there- just stick to the game, ffs.   The offside stuff at first glance looks biased as fuck (Liverpool have benefited from this, therefore it should be scrapped), but I think it was just him trying to get something going, yet another talking point for the pundits to waffle about. It was actually quite funny to see how he was slapped down by everyone. As they all pointed out- you're either offside or you're not, and trying to complicate matters will just lead to more problems (how offside do you need to be- an inch, 6 inches? What if someone is just at the threshold for being adjudged offside, do we then discount that because it's close to some arbitrary limit?). In cricket, you don't get the commentators saying a decision shouldn't count because it was really tight, they just acknowledge how close it was and get on with it.
