Featured: That was the week that was (Jun 8-14 2019)

Recommended Posts

Saturday Jun 8:

 

Fuck all happening at the moment. The most interesting thing I saw today was something on Twitter that might have been complete bollocks for all I know. It got my attention though. Klopp was apparently invited onto the Graham Norton Show but declined, as he preferred to go on holiday instead. 

 

Completely understand why Kloppo couldn’t be arsed with it, as he doesn’t get much opportunity to get away from it all and spend time with the family. Besides, he’s not really into all that celebrity jazz anyway. Still, imagine how fucking funny he’d have been on there. He’s the only manager with the personality to pull a show like that off.

 

Actually I tell a lie, my man Tim Sherwood could do it. If he had a job. And if he ever actually won something. Tell you who couldn’t pull it off. Pep, the boring bastard. He’d be whining about not getting credit for his treble and telling everyone about how big John Stones' balls are. Actually, that might make decent telly thinking about it.

 

Is this what the summer is going to reduce me to? Just talking absolute shite about nothing to fill space? Anyone makes a crack that it doesn't take the summer to have me doing that can fuck off.

 

Oh wait, something did actually happen today. Robbo scored a screamer for Scotland. It was like the shot he had in the final against Spurs only this one went in. Willing to bet here and now that he bags at least a couple like that next year. He’s finding his range I reckon. Imagine how good he’ll be when he adds a few goals to his armoury. We’re talking Balon d’or.


Sunday Jun 9:

 

England won the third place game against the Swiss after penalties. I didn’t watch it as to be honest I didn’t even know it was on. I wouldn’t have watched even if I had known, but I might have dipped in and out of it just to check on Shaq.

 

Trent had a good game, apparently. I only know this because Lineker was tweeting about him. Again. Lineker obsesses about Trent almost as much as Man City’s press office obsesses about the Reds.

 

In the final, Portugal beat Holland, which is a minor blow to Virgil’s hopes of pipping Messi. It shouldn’t make any difference either way really, but if he’d skippered Holland to this trophy it might have had an influence.

Bernardo Silva was named player of the tournament, much to the visible disgust of Ronaldo. 

 

 

 

Maybe he is just a selfish, self absorbed, individual glory above the team wanker, or maybe he’s just playing up to that now and it’s all just some elaborate in-joke between him and his team-mates.

 

He pulls this kind of shit all the time. The hissy fit he threw a few years ago when Arbeloa nipped in front of him to score a back post tap in was sensational. Is he really this much of a diva or is he just winding us all up? I reckon it’s a bit of both, as that one today can’t possibly be real. 

 

Meanwhile, one of his Portugal team-mates is hoping for a call from the Reds. Bruno Fernandez (who I mentioned a couple of weeks ago after he said he likes us better than City), is reportedly wanted by Spurs to replace Eriksen but he’s holding out in the hope that Klopp makes a move.

 

United want him too, but what self respecting decent footballer is going to join that circus when there are better offers on the table? 

 

They are on the brink of signing that Welsh winger from Swansea and they’re being linked with Longstaff from Newcastle. They have no idea what they’re doing. They tried the “throw massive money at superstars” approach and it bombed spectacularly. So now they’re going oppo and doing it the “sign young and hungry players from unfashionable clubs” route.

 

It won’t work because they don’t have the structure (or manager) in place to make it work. It’s a long way back for them fuckers.

Re that ‘streaker ‘ woman - if she thinks ‘I saw you at the game’ is flirty then she’s going to be very disappointed! I’m calling BS too. 

 

Also loved the stuff about ‘all 10 of them’ about city fans!

Oxlade-Chamberlain seems the kind of fella who could pull that shit off even with a girlfriend and make like he was just being friendly.

 

I’d say Lovren as well, but he’d have been too mystified as to why she hadn’t slid into his DM’s to make any contact with her.

If De Ligt went to City rather than PSG, he'd still be a mercenary - joining a filthy rich club who can't win the European Cup.

Tenner says Riise DM’d her.

    • Nice read that,Another ex.player in the Liverpool F.C.extended family.
    • David Ngog has recalled his greatest moment in a Liverpool shirt after Mo Salah’s strike on the weekend against Man United brought back some fond personal memories.

      The Frenchman’s stint on Merseyside is not what you would call prolific or particularly memorable by any means, but one moment clearly stands out above all others.

      The late substitute wrapped up victory against Liverpool’s arch rivals when he was put through on goal by Lucas Leiva and side footed it past Edwin Van Der Sar in the United goal.

      The jubilant crowd reaction after sealing a victory following a poor run of form was matched by the players with goalkeeper Pepe Reina running the length of the pitch to jump into the arms of the striker.

      A similar reaction took place on Sunday with Allison and Salah embracing and Ngog certainly noticed the parallels as he told the Official site.      

      “It's unbelievable how close it is.

      “It's different play of course – he has a longer run and he read it well against the defender. 

      “But that was in the last minute, against Man United, it brings back memories.

      “ I was at home but I was with my family as well. 

      I saw the two goals and I was happy because it's Liverpool and it's really important this season.   "It was exciting. To be honest, at that time I was just watching, not thinking about the goal before. 

      "But when I saw the replay and saw it was similar – and the celebration, of course, with Alisson running. It was really, really funny to watch."

      Ngog who is still just 30yo, has made many stops in his football career since leaving the Reds and English Football, taking him far and wide to Greece, France, Scotland and currently in Hungary.

      But it is the moment in October of 2009 which he recalls with pride.   “I think it was one of my great memories when I was in Liverpool.

      "Especially the celebration with Pepe, who was a great teammate, a great player, goalkeeper and a great guy.

      Ngog said that the celebration that took place was a pure spur of the moment thing that Football often delivers.

      “It was a surprise for me to see Pepe when I turned back to celebrate! Afterwards, it was just joy and you want to share with the fans and everybody.   "It was a great memory. 

      “The celebration is one of the best and it's just improvisation. 

      “You don't really prepare for it, it just happens in the moment."

      Despite being well removed from playing for the club, he still holds the Reds very closely to his heart.   And just like any fan, he hopes they go one step further this season.

      “They're in the best position possible.

      “I think Jürgen Klopp did a great job in getting everyone involved. 

      “They play with a lot of energy and it's just great to watch.   "I really hope – and I think – they will succeed this season."

      While Ngog struggled for consistent minutes, he views his time at the club where he made 94 appearances and scored 19 goals in an extremely positive light.

      "I was in at a young age and had plenty to prove.

      "I was surrounded by great players with great experience and I think I learned a lot from it. 

      "For me, it's all good memories.   "Of course you always want to do more but for me at that age it was a good achievement for me in my life and my career."

    • Anyone see how Reina did with Vanilla today?   Did he put his hip out, and did behave his teeth in for the match?
    • It's just fucking brilliant isn't it?  Pickford in the back of his goal with his little arms out is just the best thing i have seen this year.
    • Our team is already incredible and we are buying Mbappe, Werner, Sancho, Havertz and Troy Deeney.
