  1. Is it correct it’s been overturned? Edit: Yes it has.

  2. They both want their arses kicking - and a few weeks suspension - for that. Even if you've not done basic preparation to find out about the wreath-laying and the planned fan tribute, you just keep your gob shut when you see someone wearing a black armband, because you know that the story behind it isn't going to be funny.

  3. Klopp played it very well by not attacking the referee in his after game comments. It made the decision an easier one to make.

  7. Rookie ref makes egregious error. It happens. Experienced ref in VAR with benefit of replays and multiple angles fails to point out the clear and obvious error. Just the latest example of Tierney’s blatant bias.

  8. Looking forward to this. Slow cooked Brisket. Part boiled new potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and onions added to the pot. Biggest challenge will be not spoiling my appetite with a snack, as it’s a couple of hours away from being ready to serve.

  9. Shit news mate. Let's hope they can slow it right down. My Dad's pancreatic cancer is in remission. 2 years ago they gave him 6-18 months. In his last scan they've spotted a couple of points of concern on a lung but no more than that just yet. I've got an auntie in Arrowe Park hospital who's badly with leukaemia. She's in her early 70s and has been ill for over a year. My mum spoke to the hospital yesterday and they said we might like to think about visiting as soon as possible. My parents live in Devon so they're driving up tonight. We're a small family so it's going to hit us hard I fear. It's my uncle I worry for; he's stone deaf, doesn't have a clue how to cook or do anything domestic, even paying bills etc. My auntie has dine everything for him all his life. He'll be left living in Eastham with nobody. Cunt disease.

  13. Apart from them not being the entirety whatsoever, you're right. Key evidence in the prosecution case Medical records – these were crucial to establish the condition of the babies when they were attacked. When some babies recovered, the speed of their recovery was too sudden to be seen as a natural occurrence. Several medical documents featured falsified notes made by Letby to hide her involvement. She amended timings on several documents in an attempt to distance herself from incidents where babies had suddenly become severely unwell. Text messages and social media activity – these were an important part of the case as they coincided with the attacks happening on the neonatal Unit. They were dated and timed, sometimes they were similar to a live blogging of events. They also explained how Letby deceived her colleagues into believing that these inexplicable collapses were simply a natural worsening of children’s underlying conditions. They also revealed an intrusive curiosity about the parents of babies she had harmed. Staff rotas – we were able to show the jury that Letby was the one common denominator in the series of deaths and sudden collapses on the neonatal unit. We were also able to show the jury that many of the earlier incidents occurred overnight, but when Letby was put onto day shifts, the collapses and deaths began occurring in the day. We were able to corroborate this further using Letby’s personal diary in which she had noted her shift patterns. Handwritten notes and diaries – many handwritten notes were discovered by police during their investigation. They included phrases such as: “I killed them on purpose because I’m not good enough to care for them”; “I am evil I did this”; and “today is your birthday and you are not here and I am so sorry for that”. These notes gave an insight into her mindset following her attacks. https://www.cps.gov.uk/mersey-cheshire/news/lucy-letby-found-guilty-baby-murders

  15. A decent enough way to start our home campaign all things considered. Far from perfect and we still have a lot of question marks over our play (and specifically the system), but the encouraging thing was how the team responded to adversity. First, going behind and coming through a wretched opening 20 minutes, and then the way we handled the absolute joke sending off in the second half. This could easily have gone wrong, but it didn’t. So I’ll take the positives and the points and we move on to next week. That’s going to be much tougher though. Tougher even than Chelsea last week. And if we don’t get that ban overturned it will be tougher still. I’m going to start with that because it really was such a disgusting situation. The problem is twofold though. I’ll start with the initial decision first. I genuinely don’t see how the referee can be sure that was such a bad tackle that it’s worthy of a red. He couldn’t possibly know for sure because it happened so quickly. What he did know is that Mac Allister didn’t go in with studs raised high. He also knows that he didn’t leave his feet, or lunge wildly. So he was in control of his body and wasn’t throwing himself recklessly. So the worst that could have happened was that he was a fraction late and caught the lad on the shin, possibly with the sole of his boot. It’s possibly that it might be a red, but highly unlikely. So why was his first instinct to produce the red card? That’s just bad refereeing, but we have a safeguard in place for that now to prevent those mistakes from wrongly hurting teams. Don’t we? Ha! As if. The first problem is a referee who, if he is unsure (which he had to have been because how can you be sure when the tackles doesn’t fit most of the criteria for a red card?), should be issuing a yellow card and then letting VAR help him out if he has indeed missed something really bad. A referee should only be handing out a straight red if he’s certain, otherwise he should always err on the side of caution just for the good of the game. Klopp said afterwards that if a yellow had been awarded, VAR wouldn’t have overturned it. He’s probably right, but it’s Paul Tierney and his Toblerone shaped mate, so you can’t be so sure. Nevertheless, Klopp’s overall point is correct. There’s no way anybody looks at a replay of that and says “no that’s a red card”. So why didn’t they step in and tell the ref he was wrong? Well the answer to that is simple. We’ll hear a lot of bureaucratic nonsense about “high thresholds for overturning decisions” and “clear and obvious” but it’s really just about who is making the call. Paul Tierney is out to fuck Jurgen Klopp every chances he gets. He always has been, but it’s gone into overdrive since Klopp waged a public war with him. He was never going to overturn that. He was probably laughing his tiny cock off along with Captain Roid Rage beside him. So we got fucked again by Tierney and Webb (who put Tierney in position to do it, just because he can). The question now is what do we do about it? Klopp has wisely refrained from attacking the officials who made the decisions and has concentrated solely on the decision itself and why it was wrong. You have to do that and you also have to appeal. You can’t not appeal a decision as bad as that because you’re basically making yourself a punchbag for the refs. You have to stand up to it. So lodge the appeal and made sure as many pundits as possible call it out for fucking travesty it was. We shouldn’t need to do too much as I expect any ex pro who is commenting on it will say what a joke it was and that it needs to be rescinded. As far as I’m away it isn’t the refs who hear the appeal so we should be ok there. We’ll see though. But enough of that and onto the game itself.

  17. You don't have to be found guilty of breaking the law to have reached a company’s standards. The narrative over the past 24 hours has neen that they have done the right thing finally is, quite frankly, a load of bollocks. Even if they didnt want to sack him due to legal considerations, they could have mutual consented him, paid him his contract and fucked him off. They could also have continued to pay his contract and not play him, like Everton did with Gylfi Sigordsson. But Man United have done neither. Having unsuccessfully attempting to assimilate him back into the team because of fan and public backlash, they have kept him on the payroll and will now try make as much money from the player over the next two years as they possibly can, through loans or a full sale. It is fucking despicable.

  19. Just rewatched this. After the opening fuck ups, Trent was fantastic, his range of passing was sublime. Virgil was great too. Made up Mac has had his red rescinded as he’s going to be boss for us. Endo did a job too when he came on, kept it simple, but effective and occupied the dangerous defensive spaces. We really worked hard, particularly when down to ten men. God knows what’ll happen at the geordies but it was good to notice the positives without the stress of it being live.

  20. I suspected this would happen because pretty much everybody was saying it wasn't a red and presumably they know that. They'd have taken far more shit if they'd upheld it. Plus it clearly wasn't a red.

  21. There have been 141 posts on this thread in the past calendar month, which, without context, could lead one to believe that there is a level of interest in the actual league and the football there. However, over a third of those posts were made by a single poster and another large portion of them were replies to that same poster, with little in the way of discussion on the players or the games. On two occasions, there were no posts in the thread for two weeks, and the same poster has revived it from the ashes of page 2 of the FF. I suspect the football will generate little if any level of interest here, but the economic impact on clubs and transfers, any attempts to infiltrate European competition and the geo-political discussions will bring it back to page 1 intermittently

  27. Id agree- I couldn't use my left foot as a 13/14 year old striker. In true Roy of The Rovers style I spent hours using only my left foot kicking the ball against a wall gradually increasing the distance. Worked a treat. Maybe they are short of walls at the training Centre

  28. That's a really bad graph though, it's not comparing like-for-like and there are incomplete figures for several years. The circled columns are for the whole area while the grey (? sorry I'm colour blind) ones are presumably specifically for COCH. Those grey ones show a marked rise in 2015/16, followed by a drop in 2017/18 back to or below the levels seen in 2013/14, but there's no further data beyond 2018.

  31. To be fair, that might not be the case as we settle down, endo gets up to speed, Mac moves forward and we gain some faith in what we're doing..it's a learning process right now and if we were learning a new system under a new manager and we'd gone 12 games unbeaten, I think most people would think "imagine how good this is going to be when we get the hang of this". But because it's klopp, we look back with fondness and wish we could reclaim what that last team had. But it's gone and we're shaping a new one. It would have been better if it wasn't so drastic, but it is. I think you've got to give this system until at least Christmas.

  34. Nah I think they're just attention seeking dickheads. Have said on other threads but we're far too tolerant of "alternative" opinions these days. In the 80s we knew how to deal with this shit. If you'd come to school saying you weren't allowed to have your BCG because Bill Gates was going to track you, we'd have thrown you head first in a wheelie bin and pushed you down Camp Hill in Woolton. That'd be the last time you'd ever chat shit in public again.

We need to replace them with two pairs of slip on Sketchers that are reliable, breathable, and ideally - machine washable.

  41. I posted over in the Narcos thread that the US Supreme Court has recently ordered a reconsideration of the deal in which the Sackler's walked away scot-free with most of their money while dodging any civil liability. I don't suppose any of them will ever go hungry, but it might be that their lawyers spend a lot of time in court trying to keep them from losing everything. Eventually.

  42. I'd forgotten he's not even fit for this match. All the panic and worry about our lack of midfielders and this lad never enters the conversation. I'd fuck him off if Saudi come knocking, I'll fucking play until we get someone in. Absolutely pointless player, an anti-athlete.
