If you dive that many times in a game you are going to get a penalty eventually.  It’s in their clubs DNA.  It’s no coincidence that they do it so often with Fergies minion in charge.

It's astonishing! I mean they got 14 in the league alone! I think Matt Le Tissier took 49 penalties in his whole career, Fernandes will have taken that many for that lot inside 3 seasons if they carry on at that rate!


It can't be normal!

    Was it a penalty? Yes.

    Would you feel hard-done by as a defender? Yes!

    At first, I thought definite penalty. Then on second glance I thought Anthony Martial made a meal of it. I would be annoyed if I was that centre-back.

Fuck me, the mancs are playing, didnt know that!? Havent seen the penalty so cannot comment on its veracity. But 21 pens in a season, that's like 1 every 3 games, isnt it? And they've had more than their fair share of dodgey awards as well.


It's amazing Sadio and Mo can get blocked, chopped or hauled down and refs wave play on but so much fart on a united player and he goes down in the box, it's a pen!


One can hope next season the refs see through this shite and they get fuck all given.

In another potential blow to clubs loss of income, PL in dispute with Chinese rights holder over 160m payments.

The Premier League are locked in a legal dispute with their Chinese broadcast partners that could cost clubs hundreds of millions of pounds in lost television income.

Sportsmail can reveal that rights holders Suning Holdings have withheld a payment of £160 million that was due in March, with the Premier League retaliating by rejecting their offer for a three-year extension to the contract to cover the 2022-25 seasons.

The stand-off has potentially seismic ramifications for club finances as the Chinese TV deal is the most lucrative in the world outside the UK, with Suning agreeing to pay £564m for the current 2019-22 cycle for the right to broadcast Premier League games on their digital channel, PPTV.

That deal represented a 12-fold increase on the previous Chinese TV contract with Super Sports Media and the Premier League were budgeting for another significant rise for the next three years, which it was anticipated would help offset the flattening value of domestic TV rights.

The Premier League claim that Suning are in breach of contract following their failure to pay, which is believed to primarily have resulted from the sporting shutdown due to coronavirus but may also have a political dimension.

The clubs discussed the issue at last week’s shareholders’ meeting and are considering a range of options, including demanding an immediate payment, negotiating a revised payment schedule or terminating the deal.

Suning have developed into huge players in the global TV market in recent years having also bought the rights to the Champions League, FA Cup, La Liga and Bundesliga matches in China, as well as a controlling interest in Inter Milan four years ago.

The potential loss of income has been compounded by the Chinese government’s decision to cancel international sports events for the rest of the year, with the exception of Olympic trials, so the lucrative summer tours regularly undertaken by Premier League clubs have been scrapped this year.

There is also a political dimension to the dispute which is uncomfortable for the Premier League, who are in danger of being caught in the crossfire of escalating tensions between the British and Chinese governments.

In a stark message last month, the Chinese ambassador in London accused Britain of interfering in the country’s internal affairs and warned of consequences following Boris Johnson’s pledge to offer UK residency to up to 3 million Hong Kong residents.

The Prime Minister’s decision to block Chinese technology giant Huawei’s involvement in the UK’s new 5G network has also soured relations.

Over the past months, sports broadcasts by Chinese rights holders appear to have been dragged into such political disputes.

State broadcaster CCTV Sports caused a stir last month by switching their coverage of Liverpool’s 5-3 win over Chelsea to a less viewed digital channel.

According to lfchistory.net we have had 40 penalties since Klopp took over just under 5 years ago. We get 8 per year, I counted 31 for Utd since Solsjkaer took over. They will have more than 40 by his 2 year anniversary.  That must help.

    • Liverpool got their European campaign off to a winning start with a professional 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff arena on Wednesday evening.

      It has been a very difficult last few days for anyone closely associated with the club in the aftermath of losing defensive lynchpin Virgil Van Dijk for the season due to a incredibly reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

      The anger of Jurgen Klopp and Gini Wijnaldum was still clearly evident in the lead-up to this fixture, but as soon as they took to the pitch, the number one focus was claiming the three points.

      The winning goal came with a stroke of good fortune with Sadio Mane’s cross deflected by Argentine defender Nicolas Tagliafico into his own net ten minutes from the half time break.

      Speaking after the match per the Official site, the manager was honest in his assessment of the footballing quality on display, but thrilled with the end result.

      “This situation is pretty much the picture of the game, so it was not the most easy-on-the-eye performance from both teams, I would say. Both teams can play better football. 

      “But especially in this competition when you play away, a lot of difficulties, pretty much the medical department made the line-up and then you have to win the game – and that's what the boys did. I think that was deserved, even when we had to clear one ball from the line and when they hit the post. 

      “Of course they had their moments but apart from that, we were pretty dominant on a difficult pitch for both teams. I think everybody knows that Ajax is usually a brilliant football team but tonight it was really tricky, the passing was difficult, so you could see that. But we won the game and I'm completely fine."

      As well as the loss of Van Dijk, the Reds were dealt a further blow with Joel Matip ruled out meaning that the manager had to turn to Fabinho who once again filled in ably in the heart of the defence.

      The manager was delighted with performance of the versatile Brazilian who produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny former Southampton star Dusan Tadic.  

      “Look, in our situation it helps. Of course, was there pressure on the situation? Yes, it’s clear for the two in the back there, 100 per cent. First game together. Fabinho can play the position, he likes playing it actually.

      “If I would have asked him to play right-back I don’t think he would enjoy it as much as he’s enjoying the centre-half position. In our situation in the moment we have to keep those boys fit and then they can of course help us a lot. I’m not surprised he [Fabinho] plays well in the position otherwise we would have thought about a different solution, even when that would have been properly tricky. 

      “I’m really pleased for tonight, pleased for him, yes it gave him confidence, for sure helped us. These situations [goalline clearances], Millie had last season one against Bournemouth, which was a massive one. That tonight was a massive one. And so he had not only because of this a big hand in this victory tonight.”

      Klopp had no reservations in taking off the front three just before the hour mark and felt that their replacements in Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri all had a impact.

      “All three who came on are, first, in a really good shape, fresh in a tricky, difficult game on a difficult pitch. 

      “That helps a lot and you saw they helped a lot. Shaq won deflections, which is pretty special.Taki in both directions, incredible between the lines. And Diogo is a machine so he can punish opponents in one-on-one situations. We had these moments, we didn’t finish them off, unfortunately.”

      “But it’s completely fine, it was important for them. Now we started the group, now we have to concentrate on the league again and then Midtjylland is waiting after that.”

    • They've not had a win since the league began and we normally oblige poor fucking teams by giving them a helping hand. They've only scored 2 and conceded 7 and have only 1 point! Let's just hope we just run it by the numbers and have a routine win to nil 
    • Yeah even seeing him rush out as that cross came in at the end was enough to feed my bog for two lifetimes
