Featured: That was the week that was (May 31 - Jun 4 2021)

Monday May 31:

 

Aguero “We all know that Barcelona are the best club in the world. I think I made a great decision to be here and of course it is a step forward in my career.” The disrespect there. Fucking hell. There’s not too much wrong with what he said, but his seat in the Man City dressing room isn’t even cold yet and he’s shitting on them like that. 

 

Reminds me a little of when Owen joined United and was giving it the “I always wanted to play here for Sir Alex” even though it was an absolute lie and he turned them down several times when he was a kid. It was a complete lack of regard for our feelings though, and I expect City fans feel slighted by this. Although maybe not as the only thing those sad cunts have shown any kind of passion about in years was that bottle of ale that hit their bus.

 

Aguero is their greatest ever player, they’ve paid him a fucking boatload of cash (most of it off the books) and he could have asked to leave for Barca at any point. He didn’t though, he only signed for ‘the best club in the world’ when City decided they didn’t want to pay him any more. Little fucking prick. Fuck him, fuck City and fuck Barcelona.

 

Meanwhile, bit demoralising that I’m reading talk of how VAR can be improved. No. Just no. Never mind trying to improve it, just FUCKING GET RID. Trying to improve it. Fucking hell. You don’t try and fix a car while it’s on the motorway. All these VAR issues should have been sorted before it was ever implemented. We’ve had two years of this shit and the second year was massively WORSE than the first. 

 

Everyone hates it. Managers, players, fans. You literally do not hear any manager or player saying they like it, but lots have said they can’t stand it, so why is this still a thing? I’ll tell you why, because managers, players and fans do fuck all except moan about it. Instead of that, we should all be joining forces to get this shit scrapped. It isn’t on the fans to do it though, this is something players and managers should lead the way with.

 

If they all went on strike until VAR was fucked off, the fans would be behind it and the authorities would shit themselves and bin it in a heartbeat, because what choice would they have? It won’t happen though, we’ll just have the likes of Dean Smith, Nuno Holy Spirit (if he takes another job), Kloppo, Milner, Moyes, Dyche and others making great points about how shit it is and how they’d rather not have it, and fuck all will change.

 

They’re killing footy with this shit. I renewed my season ticket last week but my Dad has called it quits. There are a few reasons for it but the first thing he’ll say is VAR and how it just isn’t the same anymore. He’s watched footy his whole life and has been going to Anfield since the late 50s. He’s seen all sorts of changes to the game and although he didn’t like a lot of them he rolled with it and it didn’t ruin his enjoyment. Until VAR. He reckons footy is shit now, almost unwatchable, and I agree with him. 

 

I’d bring back the death penalty for the cunts that inflicted this on us.

When I saw this appear at 6 minutes past midnight on a Sunday night I thought Dave was burying bad news , but the Duncan pigeon image made me laugh out loud.

"Neil Warnock on Stellar." Now thats an image to conjure with!

 

My (still missed to this day) massive dog Rafa (got him 5 weeks after Istanbul) always cocked his leg on Old Neil's gate post,as his house while Blades manager was on our route to the local park!

"Meanwhile, Nat Phillips is seeing Liam Gallagher’s daughter. I don’t have anything further to add to that, I just felt it was worth mentioning." 

 

A magnificent opportunity for a childish joke wasted. Disappointing.

Felt like I needed to be respectful.

Really sorry to hear your arl fella has jibbed it, Dave.

 

Good report. Nah cannot agree with giving Kelleher CL group games. Far too big a risk and what signals would that send to Alli?

Aguero's words are, for me, more reminiscent of what Torres said when he went to Chelsea. I loved him, I was heartbroken that he'd left, but once he came out with that shite, it was like he didn't exist. Fuck him.

 

Giving Kelleher our CL games would also make me worry loads; there's just too much at stake, given the difficulties we had in actually getting there. A couple of rickets in key games and what then? He gets jibbed, and what would that do for his confidence, when he's wondering when he'll be trusted enough to get his next game? When we play Adrian, we just need to play accordingly, and not go putting him under unnecessary pressure. He will likely be only playing the domestic cup games and whenever Alisson is out.

 

Sorry to hear your Dad has decided he's not going to continue going to Anfield. Any chance you could bring your Ma instead and let the wider fanbase have the benefit of her wisdom? She needs to be heard.

Dave’s mum’s gone a bit quiet since Lallana left. Surely she must have found a replacement

I'll be fucking furious if we extend Adrian and loan out Kelleher. It feels like are getting dumber every year. 

 

Last year we went into the season without enough defensive cover and now next year we are going to do the same with midfield and goal keeper.

Absolutely buzzing that my joke Calvert-Lewin to Palace thread has translated into “lots of talk” in the weekly round up. 

I heard it on talksport!

The only one she doesn't like now is Keita. Or "Kiter" as she calls him because "a gust of wind sends him flying".

Clear evidence that at least one of us is.

 

Totally agree on VAR.  The principal itself is sound, it works in other sports.  But other sports have discovered that if you employ people who are competent you get the correct result, football in this country has proved that they simply can't do that.  Dock wallopers employing more dock wallopers.

Get it to fuck and start letting people enjoy goals and the game in general again.

FFS I didn't even know Ancelotti had walked until I read this! Nice to know what a 'high profile, always in the news' club our beloved neighbours are.

    • 10/12ml seems fair enough for a lad we would have snapped someone's hand off for 5/6ml a few months back.  Would be happy to see him stay as cover but best thing for him would be a move a play each week 
    • We should put in a £15m bid and start a bidding war.
    • I've seen the big eared boys on County Road. 
    • 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.
