    I don't know yet but I'm made up: just discharged from hospital after 3 months of chemo and feeling a bit sickly; but relieved another cycle of treatment wasn't booked in, as it could have run up to the game. Three weeks now to get fighting fit to get to a pub and be able to enjoy it. Allez Allez Allez!

    No shit...I was getting score updates on that game in the waiting area of the hospital while they prepped my wife for an emergency C-section. Within an hour my twin boys were born at 27.5 weeks! This was yesterday. Fair to say they've been good luck charms for Klopp's Red Machine. Cheers boys!

    My dad died yesterday morning (he was 83 and had been ill). It’s very sad to see the utter hatred these cunts have now. Wall pushing gestures etc. My dad was a blue. He wouldn’t have condoned that sort of thing. He took me the Cup Final in 86 when I was a kid. And again in 88 and 92 even though we weren’t playing Everton. He cheered at some of the goals when we beat Barcelona 4-0 last season. As Everton become more and more shite over the years he made out he wasn’t arsed but I think deep down he was. If they do go down I’m just glad he won’t be around to see it. Because although their fan base has obviously loads more cunts around now it hasn’t always been this bad.

    I've just come across this thread for the 1st time. Some tough stuff to read on here, although I've not read it all. I was diagnosed with terminal/stage 4 bowel cancer around a year ago and was put on palliative chemo to try and help control it. With all the luck the world can muster, after 2 rounds of treatment I'd reacted to an extent that they wanted to operate. This was still not to be a cure as some of my cancer was inoperable, but it was to extend my life. However, after having my operation, they're hopeful that the chemo has got the cancer in those inoperable areas. I'm now back on chemo, but they're classing it as adjuvant now and the hope is this is the last round with a view of giving me the all clear in the autumn. I'm not out of the woods yet, but what a fucking difference a year makes. I'm not too comfortable sharing the experience (hence why I've never posted about it before and not talked about the journey I've been on), but really I posted this as I know speaking with people who are going through or have been through a similar thing can be really helpful. I'm sure everyone's situation is very personal, but I think parts of the journey can feel similar. If there's anyone who's going through this shit or has a loved one going through it and just wants a chat, please PM me.

    I finished my chemo a few weeks back and have had scans since and went to see my oncologist yesterday. He's telling me he now believes I'm in remission and there's currently no sign of the disease. I'll be back for scans every 3 months, plus other check ups as a result of my surgery, but it seems I could well have put this behind me. The words from the oncologist yesterday were sweet "go and live your life and see you in 3 months".

    Well fuck me sideways. I've made it in to The Good Beer Guide 2020. Four years of hard work doing what I love doing and I've got a CAMRA pub of the month award plus this under my belt. Fucking made up.

    Went to the community center today to spend the day putting on a Christmas dinner for; the homeless, those below the poverty line, refugees and those, who are well - just lonely and on their own. Knackered now after doing our dinner when we get back after laying and setting the tables, serving to everyone and delivering meals to those who couldn't make it to the center. And as like last year, yes, that's my champion of champions of trifles taking center stage on the afters table. Merry Christmas GF'ers and peace and good will to all and lets hope that next year, a smattering of socialism and care for one another, spreads its ever so tiny little wings into this clusterfuck of greed and egocentric capitalisn shitfest, that we call a nation. Merry Christmas.

    Hello to all SammyAftershave’s buddies on here. I’m Andy’s sister. I’ve read all of your lovely comments and am very appreciative. Andy sadly passed away in November last year, he’s missed beyond words. He had a nice letter and signed picture from Mr Klopp which he was thrilled about. I wrote to the Club and explained about his lifelong love of LFC. Some of his ashes are on the Memorial and some were secretly scatter in his beloved Kop, on Derby day. Thank you all again and Andy Will Never Walk Alone x

    My girlfriend made me this, starting last year and spent countless hours with it. It has 13,400 stitches, it's finally finished now and I'm going have it framed. It's lovely, going up in the sitting room too, she loves Liverpool and Jurgen.

    Nearly a year sober as I’m in recovery. The old demons have been swirling around a bit more due to the current situation though. Perfectly normal I suppose. I’m a nurse as well so the thought of dealing with work in the current climate and relapsing and going in hungover etc doesn’t bear thinking about. If I can get through this without having a bevvy I’ll look back on this period and be proud of myself.

    Delighted for you. I was diagnosed in November with a tumour in my tongue. Had surgery to take the bastard out within 18 days. Started radiotherapy and chemotherapy in March. The fucking pain in my mouth has been horrific. On morphine for last 6 months but trying to wean off now as the pain decreases but that is causing me to be so fucked tired. More than half my tongue is from a skin graft of my thigh - 29 stitches and is still a fair bit swollen resulting in it chafing against my teeth while asleep. Its improving all the time but it is fucking slow. Meeting my surgeon on 31st May. I'm hoping he gives me good news and I can have a double celebration on the 1st June. By the way, the season Liverpool have had has made a sick, tired and sore man very happy this past 6 months and I can't believe fans of any other club can laugh at us at the moment. We are the lucky ones. That being said, I'd be gutted if we don't win in Madrid.

    Text my mate, who’s a massive blue and a season ticket holder, to tell him our local is charging just £2.50 a pint for all draught beers tonight, so he’s on his way over for a night on the ale. Didn’t mention that they’re showing the Istanbul CL final from 2005 in it’s entirety. He’s gonna go ape shit when he finds out.

    I got this note from Gordon (Pistonbroke), from his hospital bed in Bielefeld, and he asked me to pass it on to "the lads": After a rough night I'm feeling a bit better, being on drips with liquid medicine is having an effect. Had all tests done for corona and have to wait 48 hours or thereabouts for the results. 8 people were taken to the city hospital with the same symptoms, but none of us has a high fever. So we are all lined up to have a camera shoved down our airways to check on them and lungs. That is planned for today as I'm nil by mouth. I'll let you know more once I get the results from both the camera and the corona test...

    Some of you have built a no wIn situation in your own minds about last night. Had City won in a last gasp fashion you’d be banging on about them being fired up by the win and Spurs deflated and likely to be smashed on Saturday. Because it’s the opposite you’re building a narrative that City will be hell bent on revenge. Of course, given how the loss to City knocked us in January, and the way they lost last night, it may give their confidence a bad knock and they may be emotionally drained. I know you want to protect yourselves against hurt, but the truth is none of us know how it will play out. We can’t control what City do, so my personal view is let’s concentrate on ourselves and the chips will fall where they may, and we should enjoy us for what we are doing. I beseech you, good burghers of the FF - come along for the ride.

    Thanks for the good will gestures. I also have a blood clot on each lung, which I'm on anti-coagelants for which was terrifying when they told me but they said it's very treatable and the Drs aren't concerned. In some ways the Covid could have saved me as I would never have known about the blood clots on my lungs and would have been a ticking time bomb. I'm a bit up and down but can't fault the hospital staff, they've been nothing but compassionate, attentive and professional. This infection is definitely no joke. I'm 33 and it's absolutely fucked me over. These idiots not following the guidelines don't realise the implications of what this can do to you, it's most certainly not just a bit of 'flu'.

    Credit to Suarez, he was true to his word. He didn't celebrate at Anfield.
