    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.

    2018/19 Season Report Card - Divock Origi

    Divock just has to focus on doing what he's good at. When he does he's very effective.

    Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 (May 12 2019)

    One of the downsides of watching a championship club on a regular basis is the moronic 'support', the same crap droned out game after game. Wolves have always been one of the worst culprits, the 'bantz' being even worse when delivered in a Midlands whine. Its 60 years since Wolves last won the title, and for probably a third of the intervening years they've been yo-yoing betweeen the third and fourth tiers. The team is PL standard, the supporters are still trapped in third tier.

    Featured: That was the week that was (Jan 5-11 2019)

    Good calls on Mahrez and Tarkowski. Hopefully Mahrez will be to City this year what Rodney Marsh was to them in the 70s (one for the old timers there). I watched Tarkowski a lot when he was at Brentford. He was a footballing centre half and encouraged to take risks in Playing the ball out from the back. Decent player but he made some howlers. Once Dyche got hold of him he obviously told him to cut out any risks and he got into the England squad doing that. But that's not how Klopp wants his defenders to play and if he came to us he would be terribly exposed. If we were looking at a championship player then Kemar Roofe would be a better bet. He's come on a ton this season and could be good cover for any of the front three.

    Manchester City 2 Liverpool 1 (Jan 3 2019)

    Sane's shot for the winner seemed to take a nick off Trent, which may well have taken it away from Allison. Another bit of bad luck.

    Peter Thompson

    Met my uncle coming back from getting his paper one morning in the summer of 63 and he told me, 'We're gonna win the league this year. We've just signed Peter Thompson'. How right he was. Great player, pacy, bag of tricks and always worth watching. I always remember some fella in the crowd shouting out, 'show him yer arse, Thommo', whenever he had a full back lined up.

    Burnley 1 Liverpool 3 (Dec 5 2018)

    Dyche is getting above himself. He obviously believes that Burnley finishing seventh last season is evidence of how good he is, when everyone else sees it as evidence of just how awful the league was last year.

    Liverpool 1 Everton 0 (Dec 2 2018)

    The Sandy Brown own goal is my all-time comedy classic but that goal might be up there with it.
  13. Frank Dacey

    I saw him play.

    Another derby classic.
  14. Frank Dacey

    I saw him play.

    For comic value, this takes some beating

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I usually only watch United when they play us but today was an exception and I was astonished how utterly mediocre they were. They're a bit like us in the mid 90s, still picking up results because of the name. It can't be long before teams realise that while the shirts say Manchester United the players wearing them say mid-table.
