    Same as it ever was - 7 games to go in the league and Liverpool have nothing to play for. Pathetic.

    Friends and Comrades, I bring good news during these dismal times. On Tuesday, KMD7 (Declan) who is known to all of us after his many years of service, some of us better than others, had a life saving Kidney transplant in a hospital in Dublin. He hadn't wanted to say anything, or want me to say anything, but he has been ill for a long time now. Not only was the operation a success (fingers crossed for the long term), but better and more amazing than that, the donor of the Kidney was his wife Mary. She has been an absolute superstar, stood by her man and literally saved his life. She had her operation on Tuesday morning, Declan had his in the afternoon/evening and both have come through as well as could possibly be expected. I did say to him a while ago that it could be worse, he could be getting one of my Kidneys and I wouldn't recommend that to anybody. He is groggy and sore as you would expect and in good spirits. He is likely to be in Hospital until this time next week, depending on progress. Mary is due home this weekend, again, all being well. I'm sure you would like to wish Dec and Mary all the very best for a speedy recovery. Dec has been part of the furniture here for longer than the furniture. I thought it might be a nice gesture, in true TLW fashion to send Mary some flowers for her return home. I'm reliably informed that sending flowers to Declan is a bad idea as he will eat them. Being a dunce, I have no idea how we do a donation, a gift or whatever, so our lovely social secretary @Champ has kindly offered her expertise in this matter, so if anyone wanted to chip in, it would be a wonderful gesture and most appreciated. EDIT: You can send donations via paypal to cath.platts@sky.com Failing that, send @Champ a PM and she will give you details for a bank transfer.

    Most of these bellends won’t be match goers, but that doesn’t remove the association with the club. i just don’t understand the mentality. You know there are thousands of twats lining up to have a go at us, but you do it anyway. It’s fuck all to do with celebrating the title - and again I’m not saying that to dissociate our support from this behaviour. What I mean is that I’ve lost sleep about the outcome of seasons for years since I was a kid. I’ve lived massive highs and massive lows. I went to the big parade in 05 and I’ve been off my face and loud after big wins and horrible defeats. On Thursday night I watched loads of footy related stuff till about 1am then went to sleep. I then watched a load more yesterday. It feels great - a mixture of relief, satisfaction and happiness for the players and manager. If I lived in Liverpool I might have gone so far as to stand in the street and sing with any red neighbours. But what the fuck has going to the pier head 24 hours later got to do with any of it? It’s not a spontaneous expression of joy, it’s a selfish decision to have a party. I know someone who died of COVID he almost certainly contracted at the Atletico game. It’s wilfully disrespectful. The way you act around COVID is all about consideration and respect - whether that’s going into the middle of the road when you’re out for a jog and there’s others on the pavement or not leaning across some dozy fucker taking ages in the meat aisle. This behaviour is akin to the fuckwits shitting in boxes on the beach or having illegal raves in Manchester and London. It’s wilfully selfish: ‘I don’t care - I’m going to do it’. Lots of the people acting out in these various ways (at least in Liverpool, Brixton and Manchester) would oppose this government on many things, especially Brexit and certainly the handling of the lockdown. But this kind of premeditated wilful selfishness is the perfect expression of Johnson-ism in action: act the cunt because other people are doing it and you’ll probably get away with it and because you feel you’ve got an inalienable right to give the finger to the rest of the world while asserting the identity you think makes you special, no matter what real harm you’re doing. Want to celebrate WW2 nostalgia and white Britain while fucking over your grandkids? Vote Brexit. Want to line your own pockets and those of your mates while fucking over deprived local authorities? Become a government minister? Want to show how defiantly scouse you are and get smashed? Take your pyro down the Pier Head in a pandemic. Not only does this reflect the government’s nihilism, it feeds it. The strategy for this lot who don’t have a clear ideology, any basic level of competence or any redeeming character attributes between them is to sow division. It’s whataboutery on an industrial scale. ‘Don’t blame us, blame the scousers, the southern working class on the beaches, the black, the racists, the people who go to JD Sports and Primark, etc etc’. It works. They want this stuff to happen. They want us to blame each other and get defensive and blame Cummings. I’m also mildly embarrassed by the scale of our celebrations. Sure, there should be a big fuss about it and a proper parade in due course for the likes of us and and the players. Sure, we can’t police who can come along and we have lots of supporters who don’t feel it like we do and will jump on the bandwagon. Sure, the 30-year wait makes it unique and a massive relief, but it’s one title. I’m pleased Sky and BBC have made a big fuss, and it is special, but it can be overdone so that it can begin to feel a bit like Everton winning a derby and bringing out a DVD after a while. I guess what I’m saying is that there is nothing about what happened on the pitch that should lead anyone to think they should be congregating in town at all. Onto City then next year.

    Nah, littering is a cunt’s trick. Always has been, always will be. If you can carry food and ale to the beach, you can carry the packaging away with you. All fast food drive-thrus have plenty of bins. If you’ve got enough energy to drive to one, sit thereand eat your food, you’ve got enough energy to get out of it and walk to the bin. Scruffy pricks.

    The news on Dec seems promising. On Wednesday afternoon he was all set to get a lorry load of volunteers from Mayo, Galway and Roscommon to join the 15th International Brigade and fight Franco's forces of tyranny in Cordoba. Thursday and Friday, mostly asleep. This afternoon he's had his catheter removed which was a great relief and in his drowsy state he told me he loved me. So overall I'd say good and bad, mostly good. Chances are he will be home on Tuesday as long as things keep going according to plan. Thank you to everyone who has given towards some flowers etc and for all your concern and good wishes. He knows nothing about this thread and collection, so he will be humbled and made up when he finds out.

    I'm from Ireland and since I was 4 years old I have been a huge fan. My father used to wake me and my brother when he came in from the pub to come down and watch MOTD and share his chicken supper. We kicked him out on my 5th birthday. He was a die-hard Spurs follower (probably 61 double influence) and my brother was a Gooner (big Irish contingent in the 70s) but it was always the Reds for me. Maybe it was just the glory initally but I've always felt that it was more than that. I've felt a real affinity with the club. The winning of the trophies obviously helped but I've said on here before, Heysel was my 10th birthday and it increased the attachment. I've been over to the city a fair few times in the past 15 years and it's just feels so comfortable now. The current team has given me so much pleasure in the past few years. When I was sick with cancer last year, the joy in watching the football and even just looking forward to the games got me through some rough times. I was on a Caribbean holiday for the Barca home game last year with the whole family. We organised it for our mum for her retirement as a thank you for raising us on her own. I shouldn't have gone. I was sick as a dog but didn't want to let her down. Eating was like chewing glass. I could barely speak but that game was a real pick-me-up. My brothers were genuinely delighted for me. I was happy in a sea of shit. The improvement started that night IMO. I was back in work 2 weeks later - on reduced hours and duties but I was on the road. I would have never believed that I would get to that stage so quickly. All is good with me now, touch wood. I am really chuffed for that squad of players and management team. They made a sick man very happy when it was needed. The thing is they play like they know there are thousands of me out there when they pull on the jersey. They really get what Shankly insisted the club was about 60 years ago.

    Just updated the thread title to reflect the unique captaincy of Jordan Henderson among the pantheon of great Liverpool captains.

    We've just been through 30 years without winning it and with hindsight it's not that hard to understand how that happened. 30 years sounds like a long time but it's not really, it's only 6 or 7 different attempts at it. We got really good 3 times but each time there was someone better. Those 3 attempts took 3, 3 and 2 years to build plus another 2 years to accept the attempt had failed. That's the guts of 15 years not really doing that much wrong. The only mistake we made was showing patience and that was only a mistake after the event. Solskajaer could build a couple of really good sides (he won't) but unfortunately for him if he does he will end up running into our magnificently constructed machine. Before you know it 8 years as become 11, another plan is needed with the target of winning it in 3 years. If that fails 16 years is just around the corner, with each year the pressure builds until it becomes a noose around the neck, panic and anxiety transfers from the stands to the pitch and a hard task becomes impossible. It will take a generational player or a manager better than Klopp to get them over the line, good luck with that. This current Utd side as some prick teasers in that will cause them serious issues. Wan Bisaka and Martial both have enough about them to build around for the future but I can tell you with a high degree of certainty neither will make the grade. Maguire is too expensive to abandon and he's shit, Pogba has no interest in being there buy will do enough to squeeze an improved contract from them. Rashford has made himself indispensable for 10 years despite not being much more than decent. In closing fuck Ole the wannabe prick.

    A couple of years ago I was desperate for this guy to be able to walk away from us with something to show for his efforts. CL winner, Supercup winner, World Club Cup winner, and now PL winner. Not bad, not bad at all.

    My lad was born exactly 30 months ago. Up to then my life has been pretty much up and down. I’ve suffered with chronic anxiety, stress and depression most my life. The last 12 years have been quite bad. We lost my Uncle suddenly in 2009, he was a big red, and I was desperate for us to do it in 08/09 for him and my dad. When 2014 happened I honestly thought our chance had gone. My lad has brought me nothing but joy and to now have the opportunity to tell him my stories of this team and manager like my dad and uncle did for me. Will mean more to me than all the money in the world. Thats what football has done for me. It’s been my escape from my insecurities and dark moments in my life. Wake up and shower, think about the Reds. Get in my car and drive to work, think about the Reds. Come home, have me tea, talk to my lad and missus about their day but go to bed thinking about the Reds. Yes it’s an obsession, possibly at times, an unhealthy one. But it’s helped me get through enormous shit. Theres people who are not here who should be here. We’ll celebrate for them. To Jurgen, Jordon, the rest of the lads and yes to John Henry too. Thank you for everything you have done the last few years to help me. You’ll never know it but you’ve definitely been the one constant positive force in my life. To you crazy bunch of bastards on here as well. Thanks for giving me some great laughs especially during the Hodgson years when we all needed a laugh. Im off to piss off the blues and have a drink. Champions of England...WHERES THAT PERCH FERGIE?!

    I don't post as regularly as I used to so I'm not familiar with KMD. But please let him know that if he or his wife needs anyone to talk to or to share experiences, give me a DM on here and I'll share my phone number. I gave my dad a kidney seven years ago and thankfully it has been a roaring success. Wishing them all the best!

    I've only followed the reds for half of the 30, but spent most of that time posting on here. As someone living rurally in Australia, a lot of following this club involves getting up at stupid times, watching games alone and celebrating like Charlie Chaplin having a seizure. This place has been my base as a Liverpool supporter, and there were times when it was just plain shithouse reading that generally reflected what was happening on the pitch. Thankfully, these last few years have been great being a red, which has coincided with probably the toughest few years of my life personally. And it's absolutely helped me through that. As Klopp said, the most important of the least important. Cheers, cunts.

    Just popping in to say hello boys and girls, I don’t post much in the FF these days but TLW has been a huge part of my life for about 20 years now. We’ve all been craving this day for so long so let’s fucking drink it in and milk it for all it’s worth! I was bladdered last night, i’m on my way again now but I don’t care; these are the great days and I love you all. Up the fucking CHAMPION reds.

    I don’t feel the magnitude of this achievement can or will sink in for a while. Winning the league finally after 30 years, of course that’s easy to reflect on. That’s tangible. We also all recall the near misses, the weight of it, the stress, the anxiety, the sheer pain of some of those we just couldn’t get over the line in that time. What we were up against though? How City had been built in the most cynical, crooked of ways, the ultimate cheat code having been applied, far more even than Mourinho’s Chelsea. And then, irrespective of all that, the level they had been taken to by Guardiola. Groundbreaking, exceptional side in their own right. Look what they made us do last season to just lose out to them by a point. That side, being talked about as recently as 12 months ago as maybe the best in the history of our game, stands 23 points behind our unassailable lead tonight! Few would now bet on that gap closing rather than lengthening over the remaining games. Every pundit kept saying the thing last summer; the problem for Liverpool is they can’t pull another season like that out of the bag, but City can. Can safely say that has been conclusively shown to be wrong. We broke them this year, maybe even the way we chased them down like the T-1000 last year played it’s part too, but this time out we simply put them in a vice and never let go. They cracked early under the pressure and still the margin of victory wasn’t enough for our lads. Even now it won’t be. The standards, the levels of professionalism and ambition being shown, never seen anything like it. Stunning achievement masterminded by a man who is truly our modern Shanks.

    Unreal. I discovered TLW purely by chance in 2003. I literally bumped into Dave U before a match v Charlton on Easter Monday. Long time subscriber since. Got so many laughs on here over the years, but little did I know that it would take such a long time to win the league. Champions Leagues were fantastic but this is what I've really wanted all these years. Enjoy the celebrations Reds.

    I'm not going to read a single opposition fan opinion if I can help it. Why focus on the shittest people the sport creates. We're a vile club to them because this club still has the romance to go with the passion, we remind them of what they lack so all they have is bile. "Murderers, VAR, Tainted Title, PEDs, weak league, null and Void, Asterisk" it would kill them to admit to the truth that this is an excellent football team that deserves it's title, they have been attempting to diminish it from the second we took a lead over city. Let the hate flow it just puts a magnifying glass on their own faults. "Just done a Leicester that's all" that's the last one I got. Considering Leicester is considered one of the premeir leagues greatest achievements that's not too bad but kind of ignores us being the European champions and getting 97 points last season winning it this year with the most games to spare against a city side that's been hitting a 100 or near points the last 3 seasons, so yeah we did a Leicester. Every word they speak or write puts a spotlight on their stupidity and this year I'm sick of looking at stupidity so fuck them im sticking to an LFC bubble.
