Does anyone call him out on his bullshit over there? If someone posted that on here - about a team with double our points tally - someone would say "errr they're 27 points ahead of us". Does that not happen over there?

In fairness, if we lose our next nine games and they win their next nine, we'd probably only be ahead of them on goal difference...

The odd one, yeah. From what I’ve read he seems to get more stick on the Everton side of the forum though.

Steve0 has been coming out with more gold.

 

 
 

Steve0

Player Valuation: £40m
Today at 2:48 PM
Just having a look at their squad. They currently have a squad of 24 first teamers - quite a few on loan but none of them will do anything in the Premiership. Harry Wilson is probably the best of a mediocre bunch but he's nearly 22 and not exactly tearing up the Championship.

Of those 24 an astonishing 8 of them see their contracts expire in the next 18 months. Sturridge, Milner, Origi, Markovic, Moreno, Matip, Lallana and somebody called Conor Randall.

They might get a few quid for the ones leaving in 2020 (matip, lallana and origi) but given their troubles with injuries and/or not being very good they can't expect to make much from them.

Their sale of Solanke, although superficially a receiving a good fee, does perhaps indicate underlying financial concern among the head honchos at FSG. Looking to flog Origi as well, can they really afford to further reduce such a paper thin squad? Looks they can't afford not to, and with a whole host of assets about to depreciate to nothing it's not hard to see why.

They've also unwisely tied Keita, Fabinho and Henderson down to 2023, all on massive wages. Keita and Fabinho didnt even stand out in their leagues but it's now obvious they don't have what it takes to make it in the big league. £100m in transfer fees and about £12m pa in wages....they have been pitiful and FSG may well be casting envious eyes over the park at our Dutch Maestro if they continue to see such mediocrity signed for top dollar. 

Nor is it a particularly young squad. Only three members of their first xi are under 25, the overrated and injury prone gomez, that right back and the increasingly leggy looking Robertson.

Most studies confirm that the peak age for footballers is 26. Armed with this info you can't help but worry about Liverpool FC as all their main players have already climbed that hill, whilst some might be able to halt the decline it's fair to say none of them are still ascending the football mountain. Salah, Mane, Firmino, VVD, Hendo, the chunky Swiss international are all closer to their 27th birthday than their 26th. If I was a Liverpool fan Id be worried, this is pretty much their last chance to win the league.

City's U25s include B Silva, Stones, Zinchenko, Jesus, Sane, Sterling, Mendy, Laporte.
Evertons u25s include Pickford, Mina, Zouma, Digne, Davies, Richarlison, Lookman.
Spurs u25s include Kane, Alli, Winks, Sanchez and Dier.

The age profile of Liverpool's squad in concerning to say the least. Considering how much they've spent it's a shame to see it so aged. Maybe Keita and Fabinho can step but the evidence so far suggests this is unlikely. Not only is this their last chance to win the league it might be their last chance to make top 4. Their luck this season has been well documented, an ordinary amount of luck would see them scrapping for 4th but they've also been incredibly lucky with injuries.

If they take this small, ageing squad into next season (especially with Mane and Salah enjoying off to Africa for the summer) then a couple of injuries could spell BIG trouble.

FSG are unlikely to invest further, they've already humiliatingly backed out of trying to sign Pulisic, allowing Chelsea to swoop. Liverpool have crested their lucky wave but, unfortunately, it looks like they're about to crash to Earth. It's a shame really.
 

Comedy Gold once again by SteveO, imagine knowing the ages, stats and fitness levels of 24 players from a rival team, he should have LFC as his specialised subject on Mastermind this lad

I LOVE this lad!!

 

Two highlights for me:

 

His opening gambit of "Just having a look at their squad" like it was a casual glance to fill an idle hour rather than an all-consuming obsession.  I would wager he knows the squad off by heart, their transfer fees, ages and various performance statistics.

 

The second one is his repetition of being "worried" and "concerned" attempting to underplay his partisan, bitter, and jealousy-tinged opinions, viewpoints defined purely by envy.

 

 

 

 

I like the way he lists the Everton under-25s between those of City and Spurs. Talk about a shit sandwich!

I don't really get why having a bunch of key players at or approaching their peak and on long term contracts is somehow a bad thing. Although I probably shouldn't be looking for reason in that drivel.

A bit of Steve0 in the morning to start the day with a smile. Lovely.

Just goes to show how fragile our lead over the Bloos is. If they have nine easy games they might even overhaul goal difference aswell. Especially if we lose all ours. 

 

I really hope we beat Brighton, especially as Brighton have beaten Everton...

I'm sure I read somewhere that we're fielding the youngest side in the Prem.

I don't know where he gets his stat of players hitting their peak at 26 either, players hit their peak at around 28/29.

 

His fevered imagination.

Big six pointer for these fellas tomorrow 

It's going to be a tough one for them but I'm sure they'll find the resolve to hope Man Utd lose. The greater good and all that.

I see that next week they are away to their next manager.

They will be after a replacement for Silva and if Ralphy Arsenscuttle carries on impressing at Southampton, keeps them up and stays as flavour of the month, then the Toffees will treble his wages and promise him he will be competing with the best in a new 65,000 seat stadium on the banks of the royal Blue Mersey.

From GoT, not going to give the tard a name check.

 

On our game with them at their wooden hut in March "It will be truly beautiful if we play a part in stopping them win it. Better than a cup for me this season!"

 

So 'playing' a part in stopping us is better than something they've not achieved in 24 years. The reason people support their football club, what fans dream of. But no, they dream of playing a part in stopping us winning the league. Tells you all you need to know, they don't support Everton they just exist to hate us.

Another last minute winner or Salah penalty would send them over the edge.

Every time Salah gets a penalty I have to sit down as I feel a great disturbance in the force. 

You mean 62000 cunts cry out in unison.

That steveo stuff is brilliant. But it's clearly a red taking the piss. I can't believe he's not being called out.

This isn't going to end well is it.

 

Same thing they were having a go at Liverpool fans for the other week at the Man City game.
