After match pitch maintenance

Recommended Posts

Do the lads actually cut the grass after the game? Can't imagine it grows during the game much.

Just wondering as you often see them at every ground when the post match analysis is on.

Thought it would just get a rolling

We've just knocked Everton out of the cup at Anfield with our 3rd string an hour ago and an Anfield horticulture thread gets started. 

 

They really do mean fuck all these days the blues don't they. 

 

Oh and in answer to your question mate, no idea. Maybe Klopp sprinkles magic beans all over it.

Yes, they do cut it. Most clubs do it. This article in the Echo about the new pitch states right at the end it gets cut daily! I thought they cut it 3 times a week.

As was quoted above, they're such an irrelevance now, I thought some horticultural content would cut through the joyous malaise I was in, allowing me to fully appreciate our grounds men.

Still not stopped laughing so I needed something to save my sides from splitting

Sound. Didn't know they had a light that long, that's impressive, but again, you'd think they'd only cut the grass after the glow lights and not directly after the game. I'll have to wait for an inside Anfield pitch edition.

The problem with modern stadium football pitches is the lack of sunlight to help the grass grow quickly and healthily between games. The high stands block most of the sunlight so artificial lighting has to be used,a lot. My own opinion is that FSG have realised that Liverpool FC branded marijuana will sell like hot cakes and we are farming it at rates the Sinaloa Cartel would be jealous of.

A mate of mine, who sits on the Kop, tells me the centre of our pitch is looking like it needs some attention. Not obvious from my vantage point in the SKD

Im in the SKD Upper and I cant say the pitch looks in need of any real attention. The only places it looks a bit rough is where the oppos do those two lines of repeated 10 metre runs. Put some really furrows in the pitch just where Trent runs to and makes his crosses. I think its a deliberate tactic, the cunts.

Was just watching Richard hammonds big series on discovery. They were at spurs new stadium.

Spurs have 3 pitch-wide lights that are kept underneath the ground behind each goal that run down rails either side of the pitch. It's a fantastic bit of engineering in fairness.

    • Welcome to Timo Werner, Liverpool FC. 
    • Raiola or Jordan. Tough call. Both horrible slimey little bastards.
    • A couple of days later, the Mancs are in the news offering said brat free tickets and a stadium tour as a "loyal supporter".   I really didn't like the original story. It really felt to me like something our marketing department had dreamt up to make us look all virtuous. "Here Jurgy, look at this kid's letter. I'll draft a reply, just sign it will you? Then I'll make sure it makes the press. OK? "Jawohl. Das ist ein gutten idea."  *Mancs offer kid Old Trafford stadium tour and free tickets* "Donner und blitzen vass ist diss? Diese Manc schweinhunds haven gott von uber on me gottdammit." "Erm sorry Jurgy, I'll get me trenchcoat."   That horse bolted over a year ago Dave. He's a waste of time and hope. He's the modern-day Harry Kewell only more fragile. If he were a goalkeeper he'd be a pre-Kiev Karius without the appearances. I'm afraid I think Jurgen's perseverance with both Karius and now Keita isn't amongst his finest decisions.   Hahahahahaaaaah "...none of  City's players has won it." You idiot Sterling, "has" not "have". What a dick. Everyone knows it's "has". *Looks round proudly*  *Keeps looking* *waits a bit longer* *shuffles off disappointed*  
    • Steven Gerrard has spoken about the satisfaction in the development of Jordan Henderson as he stands on the brink of lifting Liverpool’s first league trophy in three decades.

      Following in the footsteps of one of Liverpool’s greatest ever players was never an easy task, let alone someone like the former Sunderland man who already had plenty of doubters regarding whether he had what it took to succeed at a top club.

      While there have been ups and downs there is little doubt that the skipper has come into his own and is a fine all-round midfielder and leader of men.

      Speaking to former teammate Danny Murphy for a wide ranging piece in the Mail on Sunday, Gerrard said Henderson was prepared to work his backside off for the good of the team.

      "We both know there are players who are "at it" every day and I appreciated Jordan's power and fitness by training with him. 

      “Some players play for themselves, Jordan does the dirty running, grappling for second balls, 12 or 13km Saturday and Wednesday, again and again. 

      “Teams can't function at Liverpool's level without a cog like Jordan Henderson. He's obviously going be a Premier League winner. 

      “I look at him and think: good for you.”

      Gerrard recalls a time when he had a heart to heart conversation with Henderson a few years ago when his future looked anything but certain.

      "I remember a chat with Jordan in LA a while ago and he wasn't sure whether he was coming or going at the club. 

      “I remember saying to him don't give up on Liverpool, you'll be fine.   "I knew what he had inside and that he would get there.   "You know with certain people.   "He has lifted the European Cup above his head.

      “He has that confidence now."  

      Gerrard also touched on the respect and pride he has for one of his contemporaries in Frank Lampard for taking on the Chelsea job under difficult circumstances and his wish to rekindle that rivalry on the touchline in the years ahead.

      But for know, his greatest admiration is for the man currently in the Anfield hot seat. 

      “Klopp has this stature.   "When he walks in a room, it's "Whoa,"

      "If he was your manager you'd think "I am running here".   "This Liverpool team are monsters and it's come from him the moment he arrived.

      “For the players to have that level of respect for their manager in a modern dressing room is special. 

      “You can see everyone is tuned in, physically and mentally. 

      “To get that from your players is a tough nut to crack.   "And I sense Liverpool is growing again around the world.”
