Monday May 17:

 

According to the Athletic, Trent won’t be going to the Euros and what he’s done in the last couple of games is “too little too late”. If he doesn’t go he should just tell England to fuck off altogether as frankly it would be the most ridiculous non-selection in the history of English football.

 

Too little too late implies he’s been shite all season and has pulled a Gareth Bale and turned it on in the last few weeks. He’s been our best player in 2021, it’s just that in the last month he’s really hit form and is now back to his very best. Alongside Kane, he’s England’s most talented and accomplished player by a fucking mile.

 

If Southgate wants to pick Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker and Reece James (who I like) ahead of him then while I feel bad for Trent, it’s fucking hilarious as the incompetence would be staggering. I don’t think it will happen though. Southgate is a fucking wet lettuce, he doesn’t have the balls to make a decision that controversial.

 

In other news, I was just thinking, remember when Everton fans flooded the charts with old cup final songs earlier in the season because they won four games #wedontknowthemeaningoflosing

 

Tuesday May 18:

 

Ancelotti is asked how to fix Everton’s home form and says “I’m not a magician I am only a trainer”. Hmmm, not sure about that as ‘Carlo Fantastico’ defo sounds more like a magician’s name to me. Like the Great Raymondo, last seen leaving Raquel’s flat to retrieve a suitcase thrown out of a window by Del Boy in the Jolly’s Boys Outing. 

 

Greatest episode of a comedy show ever that one. When Del realises there’ nothing going on between Raquel and the Great Raymondo and he goes all posh and says “Oh dear, I seem to have thrown your suitcase out of the window”. Kills me every time that. Anyway, no idea how I ended up on the Jolly Boys Outing but I make no apologies for going off on that tangent.

 

Klopp says Jota has a tiny chance of playing at the weekend. The bench is the best he could hope for and maybe Hendo might be on there too. He's close apparently. Can't believe how long he's been out when they initially said he had a chance of being back for the second Madrid game. Has Klopp ever been truthful about an injury?

Fucking hell, not content with digitally fellating Steve Bruce, you’re now digitally fellating the human slug that is Sam Allardyce.

 

And Traore is poor. This season is the norm for him as it was in the seasons prior to the last. Last season was the outlier. Flatters to deceive. Runs and dribbles down blind alleys, and barely ever finds a telling pass or scores a goal.

If City had 3 centre backs out and we had just VVD in, we'd have won the league by double digits this season.

it does sound bitter and probably is but the sheer amount of decisions and VAR decisions, yellow and red cards not given or lines not fucking drawn for offsides that have gone in Uniteds favour has been unbelievable, their league position is artificially elevated by being reffed to a completely different set of standards than everybody else. Fucking penalty after the final whistle sums up how they are officiated or bringing down the last man and not being sent off. The amount of penalties is a red herring the fouls they get away with or are given have shaped their games more than anything.

Repped even though you misrepresented me on Allardyce and Traore is not 'poor'. He is a massive under achiever though, and the lack of goals is something I've slated him for all season.

 

Nuno was onto something when he tried to convert him to a wing back. I ripped him for that at the time but I take it back, as now it seems like a logical move given he's a forward who doesn't score. It's the same thing Brendan did with Downing.

They even scored after the ball had gone 2 feet out of play at West Ham, ffs!

    • Newcastle have identified Nat Phillips as a transfer target according to reports.   The central defender had a season to remember with his status rising quickly from a player firmly on the periphery, to a key member of the starting lineup.   As other defenders fell around him Phillips stood tall and naturally grew in confidence, becoming a cult figure within the fan base due to his whole hearted commitment to the cause and his love of a powerful clearing header.   But as the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip return to full fitness along with the addition of Ibrahima Konate  the question has been raised regarding what exactly happens to Phillips.   In a ideal world, Jurgen Klopp would love to keep the 24 year-old as a reliable back-up option in much the same way that Dejan Lovren was.     On the other side of the coin, Phillips has now proven himself at this level and as someone who is close to entering the prime of his career will want to play consistently.   The Mail reports that Steve Bruce is ready to put in a £10 million bid for Phillips but he is likely to find competition from Burnley.   With the way that both of those clubs play their Football, Phillips would be the ideal signing and likely to go another level.   In keeping with the honest way he goes about his Football, the former Bolton Wanderers youth player, recently spoke about his future possibilities.   “We haven’t had a conversation about it up until now. I think the situation is, initially they didn’t anticipate me having the season and putting in the performances that I did do.   “Maybe where they might have thought I was just going to do a job and then they would be able to sell me and I would move on, now they’re having second thoughts. I’m not sure.   “I still need to have the conversations with them and just see if there is a role for me there and what role they would want me to play.   “It would depend on if they saw a role for me at Liverpool and then what role that would be. I would have to decide what is best for myself off the back of that.”   Phillips has left such an impression that it would be a shame to see him depart.   But if he chooses that option, he will do so with the blessing of everyone associated with the club and in the knowledge that he played a pivotal role in Liverpool securing Champions League football for next season.
