Joe Cole and Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

I've no idea why anybody would seek to preserve a season which hasn’t even started at the expense of one which is three-quarters completed. There's plenty of scope to have a meaningful next season even if this one doesn't complete until Autumn.

Self preservation. Cole and Ferdinand don't want West Ham in the Championship. Ferdinand also doesn't want us winning the league.

Finish this season, if it goes into next year so be it. Split the following season into four groups of five seeded, top two in each group go through to two leg knockouts.

Winners of the knockout go into CL then semi and final to find Champions.

Uefa places decided for one season only by third place in the groups. 
No cup games. European games to be played after extensive play-offs. 
No groups, straight to knock. Big teams come in later. Probably fucked something up, but there you go.

That’s what betrays their motive, isn’t it. With nowhere else to go, you then get the it’s for people’s health diversion. Even though nobody is suggesting we play before it’s safe and the issue therefore becomes a logistical rather than public safety one.

They are all just obsessed with stopping Liverpool lifting the title and using a pandemic as an excuse to do so. If the league did decide to cancel the season then I hope Henry and co get their legal team on the case and tie the league in knots and legal red tape preventing the start of the nee season.

And then the same twats who want the league cancelled would slag the club off over how we are putting winning the league over people’s lives even though the likes of Cole, Ferdinand , Allardyce etc etc are doing the same thing over us not winning it...

Joe Cole and coronavirus. The beginning and end of the intelligent life cycle.

Trust me there was no sign of intelligent life to begin with.

I've probably told this story before about Joe Cole and was told it by a coaching instructor on an FA coaching course when Cole was a young player and the coach was part of a young England team with Cole a regular player.The coach knew he had a slight injury to one of his knees and it needed to be bandaged up although he was still able to play. Anyway, this coach saw him before the game with a bandage on each knee knowing only one needed it and asked Joe Cole why he had bandaged up both of them, his answer was 'So the opponents won't know which one to kick.'

any ex player claiming the league should be voided is just proving what everyone thought about them in the first place. That they are brain dead twats.

 

I was reading a piece on The Athletic, yes i know, they do ramble on a bit. But the general consensus in the article was that from the meeting the officials had from the premier league last thursday was that in no way will the league be voided,and apparently Ed Woodward was one of the loudest voices to this. Which imo is a good thing.

 

I see the headline on football365 is an idea about finishing the league in China. 

 

Dare i say, not the worst idea in the world is it.  

He would be cause a voided season fucks United much more than it would us. 

 

Some of their fans don't get that.

Everton have voided every season since 1995. 

 

Cant remember Joe Cole doing a single thing in a Liverpool shirt apart from getting sent off against Arsenal.

I'd say not as stupid as he looks but that was always going to be a tough ask.

    • Troy Deeney says that he feels sorry for Liverpool for having their season spoiled by the coronavirus outbreak but believes all integrity has been lost from the season.

      Yesterday saw the announcement which every Liverpool fan was waiting for regarding the resumption of the Premier League after a three month hiatus.

      As has been previously stated, there are to be no fans inside Football grounds for the foreseeable future meaning it will be somewhat of a empty existence for players, managers and officials alike.

      Jürgen Klopp and his players were masters in keeping their emotions in check whenever they were asked about winning the title.

      But it would have only been natural for them to let their mind drift and envisage the complete joy and euphoric scenes that would have taken place at Anfield come the end of the season.

      Watford captain Troy Deeney has been one of the main voices from the players expressing doubt on the resumption of the season.

      Now that a return looks virtually guaranteed, the striker feels that the title win will always come with an asterisk attached.

      Football 365 (via CNN) reported Deeney as saying.  

      “I believe that when it comes to the integrity of this season anyway, it’s already gone.

      “I feel sorry for Liverpool because no matter how it plays out, they deserve to win the league. They deserve to get the trophy.

      “But no matter how it plays out, even if we play all the games, it’s still going to be the year spoiled by the pandemic. It’s not going to be that year that Liverpool won the league being the best team and, you know, it’s 30 years they haven’t won for.

      “So I do feel sorry for Liverpool and their players and Jordan [Henderson], but in terms of integrity, there’s no way you could say that this is a viable competition.

      “It’s like running a marathon, 20 odd miles, stopping for two months and then sprinting the last bit and going: ‘Ah, that was a good time that.'”

      As Liverpool fans know all too well, it’s not over until the finishing line is crossed.

      There are two wins required until the Reds are officially crowned as champions.

      And as we have seen during this hiatus, there will be those who try to pour a level of doubt on the achievement or in case of Deeney, deliver a level of faint praise.

      In terms of the marathon analogy of Deeney, there will be no team to emerge from the pack and therefore no sprinting required.

      Simply because, Liverpool are way out in front, the hard work has already been done as they have broken the back of their challengers.

      We live in a democracy and opinions like Deeney's are more than welcome to be noted.

      But the cold hard truth is asterisk or not, Liverpool have more than proven themselves as a class above this season.

      And when it is all said and done, this trophy will sit very nicely amongst all the other pieces of silverware in the Liverpool trophy cabinet.

    • That’s my worry. Not that we won’t eventually win it but that we come back a bit lethargic and complacent because we are so far ahead  and it’s literally in the bag.
      I want us to hit the ground running and put it to bed as quickly as possible, I don’t want it to drag onto four five or six games and then it stops again giving ammunition to those who said you can’t just “give” them the title as it’s not mathematically over
    • That's really bad luck for the lad in all fairness.   I don't particularly wish any ill on their players, except for Holgate. He's a cunt. It's the fans who deserve the venom and disdain.
    • The £25million summer signing has only just returned to full training due to a depressing series of problems, which saw him struck down after playing just two games for his new club. But now he will now undergo surgery on a severe Achilles injury. The freak injury happened when he was playing a round of foot tennis with team-mate Andre Gomes at the end of Thursday’s session.
