Yep, they would just look like pathetic bitter twats.

 

Remember when Arsenal won the league at Anfield with the last kick of the season?. Liverpool fans stayed to applaud Arsenal when they were presented with the trophy. But its Everton who are the classy ones.

I remember it well. Sadly I was on the Kop that night. We were devastated, but we knew Arsenal were a great team and we acknowledged it. I remember the Arsenal team coming down to the Kop to applaud the Liverpool fans after they’d celebrated with their own supporters and O’Leary mouthing ‘thank you’ and giving us the thumbs up. There was a lot of mutual respect between the clubs.

They bought Lineker the start of the 85-86 season (without European football) he had the season of his life and they still didn’t win anything. Only Andy Gray was  the notable ‘out’ in that 85-86 season but they bought Lineker in for him. Bobby Mimms, Bailey and Ian Atkins were the only others that left for a fee. The break up of that side didn’t happen in the aftermath of Heysel. Indeed they won the League 2 years after Heysel. Gary Stevens, Heath, Peter Reid, Mountfield, Harper left 3 years after Heysel, whilst Trevor Steven, Psycho and Bracewell left 4 years after Heysel. Trevor Steven and Gary Stevens being the only 2 you could argue moved for European football and that was 3 and 4 years after, whilst the rest took a step down and were on the decline. 

Did we get Manchester United banned from Europe in 2013, because they seem to have followed a similar trajectory?

Despite what he used to say, I’m pretty certain Kendall joined Athletic Bilbao in a year when they didn’t even have European football. Agree with what you say entirely about them making poor choices.

He joined in 1987/88.  Spain's European teams were

European Cup - Real Madrid 

UEFA Cup  - Barcelona, Español, Sporting Gijon

Cup Winners Cup - Real Sociedad

Bit of a weird ending to Southall's column there. 

Whingeing about FFP. This is because it benefits us rather than them. He believes clubs owners (Usmanov) should be able to put as much money in as they want. 

 

If FSG were putting millions into LFC without it being regulated Evertonians would be crying cunts about it.

This is an often claimed thing from Evertonians, because they won the league in 85 the assumption is all they had to do was turn up and they’d have won the European Cup in 86.

Conveniently forgetting that, had things been different at Heysel where we were never going to win that final after the deaths were known, they might have had us to face at some stage in the competition the year after.

They’ve become World Experts at predicting how things would have worked out, I’m surprised they don’t pick the 6 lottery numbers each week, they should all be millionaires.

In the season they would have ‘won’ the European Cup they lost the league and FA Cup double to us and were knocked out of the League Cup by a Chelsea side reduced to ten men. That kind of spoils the fantasy.

Just had a quick look at the European Cup that year. They drew Anderlecht in the first round who beat just beat Bayern Munich in the quarters before losing to Bucharest in the semi. 

 

They may not have beaten them, let alone Bayern, Bucharest and Barcelona

It’s all bollocks. And their whole argument is that winning the European Cup would have made them a massive club with a fan base all over the world and stopped them being shit now.  Even though they are already a massive club of course and don’t even want a global fan base because that is Kopite behaviour.

 

Obviously Aston Villa and especially Nottingham Forest who actually did win European cups in that era show the absolute certainty of the global domination that was denied them.

I did think about looking that up earlier. But it just didn't matter, he went for money regardless, I'm pretty sure he said so at the time.

Southall gone full bitter. Funny the way he said exactly the opposite at a sportsmans dinner I went to about 4 years ago. 

 

It's the only thing they've got left to talk about. 

 

Ignoring the fact that he's playing to the gallery to get the more rabib fans onside, he's talking complete and utter bollocks.  Spouts that owners should be able to put in as much as they like with no regulation but then goes on to say everyone should have paid to bail out Bury when they were left in the shit by an owner who spent recklessly and then decided he couldn't be bothered any more.

Totally agree with that. We were denied a clear peno when ronnie whelan was brought down through on goal. Obviously, I just want to forget about that final, but if things had been different that night and the disaster didn't happen, they would have imo had us to contend with the following season, as I believe we would have beaten Juve that night.

 

We were the two best sides in Europe at that point, but it's no guarantee of success. City were arguably the best side in Europe for a period up to a year or so ago and Spurs knocked them out. It's possible that could have happened to the Ev against a seasoned European team.

Plus their pen was given for a foul about 2 yards outside the box

 

Not that it matters of course

The pressure of expectation could have been a factor as well. Their fans and probably the country in general would have been waiting to see if they could match the local rivals. United knew they had to do what we did too and while they won the Cup Winners' Cup like Everton, they had a bit of a psychological barrier in the European Cup I think.

    • Despite the halt to the Premier League season, transfer rumours never stop and the latest snippet of news regards another left-back being linked to the Reds.

      Football 365 (via Spanish publication Sport) reports that PSG star Layvin Kurzawa is on the radar of Liverpool as they search for specialised cover for Andy Robertson.

      The evergreen James Milner has deputised many times in the role during the tenure of Jürgen Klopp, but in doing so, it takes away some of the strengths he offers in the middle of the pitch.

      Youngsters Yasser Larouci and Adam Lewis have made appearances in domestic cup and pre-season games, but they are both viewed as options for the long term.

      Kurzawa was strongly linked to Arsenal during the January transfer but he stayed put at the French champions with manager Thomas Tuchel very keen to keep hold of him.  

      The 27 year-old has a deal of experience in a domestic sense having also played for Monaco, in European competition for PSG and also on the international stage where he has won 13 caps for France. 

      He also brings a winning pedigree to the table having been part of three title-winning squads with PSG as well as a number of domestic cups.

      With his contract ending in the summer, Liverpool will be able to sign Kurzawa on a free transfer.

      In terms of his strengths, Kurzawa looks to have a nice blend between attacking and a defensive sense.

      In possession, he tries to drive forward with the ball, a trait highlighted by his 1.47 progressive runs up the pitch per 90 minutes this season.

      He likes the ball at his feet with Kurzawa where he has averaged 2.8 dribbles per 90 minutes with a success rate of 56%, and has a pass success rate of 87% during 2019/20.

      Despite being comfortable in possession, Kurzawa is not a playmaking full-back in the way that Robbo and Trent are, although to be honest, not many are in the modern Football landscape.

      An area where Kurzawa could struggle in a Jürgen Klopp side is his defensive positioning and concentration.

      This is along with a lack of confidence in his own ability which many close observers believe is a key reason that he has been in and out of the PSG side this season. 

      That last part makes him sound like a Alberto Moreno clone, but in truth we are not looking for a world beater in this position, just a player that can give Andy Robbo a breather every now and then.

      With that all said, being able to sign Kurzawa could be a pretty savvy move.

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
