Miscellaneous LFC Stuff...

Recommended Posts

Apparently, we have a team of mathematicians. 

 

A team of them!

 

One of them was featured on the first of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures 2019 (still available on BBC iPlayer) explaining what they do. It was actually quite interesting. (And it was hosted by Dr Hannah Fry, so that's all good, too.)

Bumcunt here, 

 

Been having a few moments of clarity, and this post reaches across the FF/GF divide, so it is homeless.

 

But what links the following clubs:

  • Zenit
  • Fenerbahce
  • Zurich
  • Molde
  • CSKA 
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv
  • Besiktas
  • Rubin Kazan
  • Partizan Belgrade
  • Dynamo Kiev
  • Spartak Moscow
  • Basel
  • BATE Borisov
  • Crvena Zvezda
  • Shakhtar Donetsk
  • Galatasarary

 

I'll tell you.

They are all clubs, the main ones, who play in the CL but are from non-EU (or EEC) countries. 

 

As for past winners who were not in the EU (or EEC) (1957 it began) at the time they won it: 

  • Steaua Bucharest won the European Cup in 1986 (Romania joined the EU in 2007) 
  • Red Star (Crvena Zvezda) won the European Cup in 1991 (Serbia still not in EU)
  • Celtic won the European Cup in 1967 (Britain joined EU in 1973)
  • United won the European Cup in 1968 (As above)
  • Real Madrid won 5 European Cups until Spain joined in 1986.
  • Benfica won 2 European Cups in 1961 and 1962 (Portgual joined EU with Spain in 1986)

 

Take from that what you will. 

I don't like the look of that first list.

Can’t find a thread so I’ll put it here.
 

I cannot fucking stand Bruce “Brucie” Grobbelaar. Hated him when he played for us. Hated him when he left and hate him now with his witch doctor curse story he nicked off Barry Fry.
 

Wish he’d fuck off. 
 

I have spoken.

Never trusted nor rated him. Don’t think any of our players did either. Esp the jocks after recent interviews.

Any pics, it sounds awesome 


I’ll ask around the family and see, I’m pretty sure there must be at least one though as me and my little brother were made to wear the things all the fucking time.

 

Cant find any evidence on the internet of the patterns or I’d stick that up.

 

Gives me an idea for a thread ‘When did you realise you were growing up in poverty?’

Apparently this is from a 1947 6th round FA Cup tie against Birmingham.

 

 

Not sure if that is the famous Albert Stubbins diving header that old-timers used to mention in any 'Best Reds goals ever ' conversations. Hope not as it seemed relatively ordinary.

    • 3 more games like that? That should make the season finale a lot more fun.
    • Jürgen Klopp has given fulsome praise to his players as Liverpool had to fight exceptionally hard to record their 18th straight league win after a 3-2 victory against West Ham on Monday night.

      The home fans walking into Anfield would have by and large expected a routine victory against a side who are battling to hold onto their Premier League status.

      And when Gini Wijnaldum scored from a flowing move within the ten minute mark, it appeared that the Reds would stroll to another three points.

      However the Hammers who have just one league win in 2020 and whose fans are in uproar over the current ownership of the East London club, were in the mood to cause some uncomfortable moments for the home side and equalised through a Issa Diop header which went through Alisson.

      They then took a shock lead early in the second half when substitute Pablo Fornals smartly turned the ball home and any discussion of a routine evening at the office was now well and truly on the back burner.

      During this winning run in the league, Liverpool have had their hurdles to overcome and this was another one.

      While they were not at their fluid best, they found a way again with goals by Mo Salah (via a Lukasz Fabianski howler) and Sadio Mane. 

      Speaking after the game as the Reds equaled the consecutive league victory mark set by Man City, Klopp said he continues to be be amazed by the ability of his squad to perform game after game.

      The Echo reported the manager as saying:

      A couple of years ago, maybe at the beginning of my time here, I said we wanted to write our own stories and create our own history.

      “Obviously the boys have taken that really seriously, when I said that!

      “It’s all cool, but not too important at the moment. 

      “I never thought it would ( the consecutive wins) would bebroken or equalled We did it and I cannot believe it happened to be honest.

      “It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult.

      “We have spoken about wonderful games and hard games, and it was a difficult one tonight. 

      “You can only get those numbers by winning all those games. The brilliant ones, the rougher ones, the more grumpy ones.”

      “That’s what counts. 

      We all know that it’s very special, but at the moment we are just in the situation and want to recover and want to prepare for the next one.”  

      Despite also battling for their Premier League survival, Klopp said the next clash against Watford on Saturday evening will a considerable challenge.

      “The next three points are always the hardest. 

      “It’s always been like this. It would be strange if we said anything different. 

      “The next 12 points will be difficult because they are difficult, you saw that tonight.

      “The next opponent is waiting, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us. It’s completely normal. It will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.

      “I saw them against United and they played really well here because at the moment everybody is fighting for everything.

      “I saw the boys tonight, they are really ready to fight. 

      “As long as we have that then nobody should worry, but we really have a lot of work still to do.”   Klopp also a special mention for the crowd after the 21st successive home league win.

      “We have to be ready for the hardest work as a unit, and we were there again together with the crowd tonight, I loved that fact. 

      “Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get.   "So far so good."

    • If Lallana's leaving then Naby needs to stay so he can take over as stringvest's favourite player.
    • Amendment to earlier post - he also looked very good at the start against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Of course he then went off injured, and the reshuffle led directly to their first goal. His injury record feels like it puts Harry Kewells in the shade.
