  1. Jota signing for Brentford (he's the hirsute one), now of Villa.

    Liverpool 2 Brighton 1 (Nov 30 2019)

    The season Rodgers complained about Lee Mason reffing us against City, the next game was Chelsea away. Webb reffed it and basically punished Rodgers for complaining about Mason. E'too took Hendo out knee high in the first minute, as clear a red card as you could see but I don't think he was even booked. E'too went on to score the winner, and to make sure we lost, Webb denied us two blatant penalties. Shocking performance, but Webb wasn't punished, instead he was the FA's referee at the World Cup. The reverse fixture against Chelsea, the infamous Gerrard slip game was refereed by Atkinson who allowed Chelsea to waste time from the first minute before finally booking Ashley Cole with about 5 minutes to go. Riley won't do anything against his fellow Yorkshireman, as he loves getting them on the PL list. Pawson, the wretched Bobby Madley were two.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Too much red in a couple of those flags, I'm surprised they're allowed in the ground.

    Cover Versions that Beat the Originals

    Not a cover version, as this is the original as recorded in the sessions for the Nebraska album, but radically different from the better known version and a better take on the song, I think.

    What's Alan Stubbs doing these days?

    Men at Work might have done it but I think this is the original.

    Do they still supply cushions at Goodison? It used to be the thing in the day to throw them at their players when they were leaving the pitch after another shocking display.

    Nice take on The Cars classic. The band seem to be having a lot of fun doing it.

    Sterling: Booing Joe was wrong

    When I started watching the Reds in the early 60s, there was none of this animosity towards England. Players being selected for England was a sign of the club's progress from second tier to champions. The disconnect began more from the London press who never got over Jimmy Greaves not playing in the world cup final and since they could hardly take it out on Geoff Hurst, who actually replaced him, Roger Hunt was targeted instead. It spread to the fans in our glory years of the 70s and 80s, when our players couldn't save dismal England teams from misery.'Why can't they turn it on for England as they do for Liverpool', was the question. The obvious answer that for Liverpool they were having to play with the likes of Carlton Palmer seemed to escape press and fans alike.

    Aston Villa 1 Liverpool 2 (Nov 2 2019)

    Far from Atkinson being disciplined he's got another PL appointment this weekend (happily not us) I'm sure I read somewhere that he wasa Yorkshire policeman, not the most Liverpool-friendly body of men.

    Bercow standing down

    The position of Speaker usually rotates between Labour and Conservative, so the next speaker should be Labour. Harriet Harman's name has been mentioned.

    Old School

    Is that Everton's training ground?

    Peaky Blinders

    Or that in 1929, Mosley wasn't a fascist, but one of the most radical members of the Labour government.

    Bolton Wanderers and the like ....

    Read something in the paper this morning about how practically every championship club's wage bill is at over 100% of income and in League One the average figure is 80%. I don't see how you can sustain a business on those figures. I hope the two clubs survive but, even if they do will it just be putting off the day of reckoning. Salutary to think that Bury were in the same league as us the season we gort promoted.

    Hall of Fame - Class of 2019

    St John and Keegan were two of my choices because of the tremendous impact they had on transforming the side. When St John arrived, Liverpool had been jogging along for about even seasons near the top of the second division. Within 4 years, we'd won promotion, the league and our first ever FA Cup. Keegan turned a team that was functional and hard to beat into title winners and finished off by being man of the match in Rome in 1977.
