Which is why it's an automatic red card in rugby. You either challenge fairly in the air or you stay clear. 

 

Good point. In a game where punching someone in the face might only get a yellow, this cowardly shitehouse behaviour gets a red. Anything where the neck can end up taking the full weight of someone falling is insanely dangerous.

It will get clamped down on when one of those cheating foreign players does it.

Sadly not, he’s currently been “clever” at winning free kicks.

 

It’ll only change when he seriously injures / paralyses someone

Or when someone does it to him.

What a shite line up this is. 
 

5 at the back, 2 holding midfielders, get the ball to the other 3 and hope for the best. 
 

At least Pogba isn’t playing.

Lazio are shite. 


After taking their 3 main men off, be funny if Lazio went out now. 
 

I’d love Brugge to get through and us get them. Bye into the quarter finals that. 
 

Unfortunately, Citeh will be guaranteed to get them. 
 

Saying that, I’d be happy with Lazio as well. Have we ever played a competitive fixture against they? The Cheyrou Classic doesn’t count.

Mignolet turned into Neur this half. Sweeping that half like Charlie Kelly. 


Actually, there’s something Freaky Friday about this game.

 

Mignolet has turned into Reina, being an excellent sweeper keeper and Reina has turned into Mignolet by continually flapping at crosses.

Leipzig haven't had an answer to properly replace Werner. All they have in the squad are attacking midfielders and two shit target men. Would be surprised if they win tonight.

RBL are 2nd in the Bundesliga. They should have won in the Allianz on Saturday. They’ve beaten PSG already in the group stage and were unfortunate in Paris. 
 

Forsberg has been playing in a free role and looking dangerous. 
 

I’m not saying they’ll win the game but it’s wrong to dismiss them. The tempo & pressing they play with, the mancs will certainly know they’ve been in a game.

Can someone please recommend a stream for watching the mancs go out tonight?

No, only two friendies at Anfield. Went to one think it was about 2008 and Voronin scored the winner.

It's a styles game. They have a terrific manager and style of football, but the way to beat a team like Man United, who sit back and have lots of pace on the counter, is usually not with the no striker thing. Although, playing with either Sorloth or Poulsen wouldn't be any better but that's the point.

 

Edit: lol

Don’t remember that. I definitely remember Bruno Zidane and his white boots looking genuinely class.

 

Looking at Lazio tonight, I’d have no issue with us drawing them. They look incredibly shaky at the back, got to think Mane & Salah would have a field day.
