    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    We've had multiple bad luck with injuries with probably the most important pound for pound player in the league out for the season. We've been robbed of 4 points from bad decisions. We've had several of our players get Covid and their form since is dodgy. No crowds at Anfield. 6 or 7 points can be chased down but I don't see it being this year. Next season we will still have a very good team and I'll enter it with hope. It happens. United lost Keane for a season and that was the year Arsenal won the double. He was their best player at the time. The following year they won the treble. FSG have done a lot of good things and more than some sketchy things. They are on the pigs back with a manager like Jurgen who can build a top team for relatively little. I think their exit strategy is to get out of dodge before he leaves because they won't want to invest the kind of money that other top managers would need and right now we are one of the most valuable brands in the world.

    Absolutely Doc. We feel like City twelve months ago. It's hard to take the last five games because we were arguably favourites after the Palace game with a nice run of games to build a gap with our rivals. Now we're a 25/1 longshot and being honest I think it's borderline if we make top 4 because the two Mancs, Spurs and Leicester look better right now and we have a shit run of fixtures coming up so by the time we find form we could be royally up shit creek. Prior to Jurgen coming, I used to feel the new season was generally not something to get too excited about. It was hope rather than anything else. Next season I genuinely feel excited about. Virgil and Gomez back. Crowds back. 2 or 3 new players and the best manager in the world identifying them. Players with a point to prove. Possibly Elliot breaking through. This is not like the early 90s when we were knocked from the saddle and were in freefall. We will be back next season.
  3. I'd recall Elliot from Blackburn. Give him proper minutes in advance of next season. Think he could be a phenomenal player within two years. Very evident Jurgen doesn't trust Taki and Div will be gone in the summer.

    We will start next season as the best team. Fabinho, Virgil and Mane will stay though Mo could be sold and that will fund maybe two top class players. Right now the team is a shambles but you would want to be naive to think that Jurgen doesn't turn it around.

    Jurgen the Highwayman won't be holding up that carriage looking for a striker anyway.

    Agree with all that Docker. Everything that could go wrong this season has gone wrong. Everton and Brighton cost us four points and I've no doubt if I looked at all our games, there may be other decisions that cost us points. That's before watching a great team decimated by injuries and our rivals getting some outrageous decisions. As DaveT says above, you can almost write the script for tonight. Burnley's honest British and Irish players kicking lumps out of us and us getting nothing. After the game, Des Kelly or whatever knobhead it is interviewing Jurgen hoping to get him to react and then Linekar and the other knobheads can make him out to be an arrogant German. Brexit Britain at it's best. VAR could be brilliant for the game. I watch a bit of European football and it works well generally in their games. Not perfect but good on the whole. The problem here is that our officials are useless. I definitely think earlier in the season there was an effort to ensure that we don't walk the league and keep the red Mancs in the league. It's a real clusterfuck when you compare their experience at Brighton and ours. My general point is that we are in the title race. We can't change what has happened because if we could we would be top of the league. We need to knuckle down and while I have sympathy for the team, I think no more than 5 or 6 of our team have consistently delivered this season. Mo's stats are great but his performances have often been poor. Sadio has been mediocre this season by his standards. Bobby has been non-existent in a lot of games. Trent has been poor since his return to the team. 4 top class players that have been very streaky. I actually think we will win the league next season when we hopefully have a fully functioning defence and a bigger squad. Let's just give it our all this season because we can win it this year. We won't if we feel sorry for ourselves. 4 points is nothing over 18 games. We beat City it is 1 from them. We beat United at their place and we are ahead of them on goal difference. The next 6 weeks is going to decide if we win it because if we are within 4 points with so many tough games done, we are on the pig's back. I would love if we got nasty and snide. Robbo snide by the way. Chase every decision and make life challenging for the officials. The Mancs do it to a tee like City do. Actually pretty much all teams. We need to come out of the blocks and tonight is a good time to start.

    Not disagreeing but what's done is done. We can't change it but if we get our heads together we can win the title. 4 points off City is nothing with a half season left. Both them and United could have dropped points tonight and being honest while they, Spurs and Leicester deserve respect, none of them are outstanding teams. Teams with great individuals yes. Teams hungry to win yes. Not great teams like City of two years ago. In 86, we hunted down a really good Everton team. I have a memory of us having a shitty Christmas that year and going to Spurs and winning 2-1 and then going on a long and brilliant run. We can do this if everyone gets their shit together most notably the front three and Trent. We won't do it if we keep talking about decisions that went against us, decisions and luck that others got and all the injuries we have.

    Agree with that. We were robbed at Everton and Brighton and some very dubious decisions in other games but we need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves. United get a lot of decisions but credit to the horrible bastards, as well as City and the rest of the teams up there, they are hungry to win. You look at Cavani and the whole lot of them chasing every decision and harassing the referee. Only Robbo does that for us. Maybe Hendo and Mille as well to be fair. We're a team of really nice lads. Right now it just feels like we're a bit sorry for oursevles. Not doubting the lads aren't desperate to win, but it feels like we're wallowing in our bad luck. The next 6 or 7 games will decide if we win the league because if we come out with a very good points total we win it imo especially if we beat City. If not we are chasing top 4.

    They are getting luck in a lot of games but 3 points after 3 points. Rashford deflection against a depleted Wolves, a dodgy peno and one or two lucky scrapes against Villa, Burnley missing a sitter in last minute and then tonight. I think their luck will run out but fuck me if they keep this up they won't be far off. City got a bit of luck tonight but if they drew or lost could feel hard done by. Find it so hard to dislike Cavani. One of my favourite players of the last ten years. Nearly 34 and running around like he is 22.

    Pogba suddenly gives a shit. They should ask for 5 years wages back.

    Yeah I agree Docker. I like Leicester. Only think is Linekar and Smudger Smith would be unbearable. I actually like Villa. Really good side. Don't think they could win it, but think they have an outside chance of top 4.

    Could never be happy with City winning the league even if they finished above United. An absolutely obnoxious fan base with some thoroughly unlikeable players before we even talk about their owners. Singing songs about Sean Cox just about sums them up.

    Would love us to sign either Maddison or Grealish. Ward Prowse and one of those lads and I'll be happy along with a striker and a central defender and it's a great window. Can't see us spending that much though.

    Phone ringing.... Southampton: (Ah fuck it's Liverpool - tight bastards) Hello Liverpool: Hey guys, how's all on the lovely south coast. Great to talk to you again. Southampton: Emmmm..yeah good to talk to you as well. Ehhhh how can we help you today? Liverpool: We're here for our free James Ward Prowse and you might throw in the Danish lad from your defence as well for free because we've been loyal customers for years. Southampton: Sorry but Ward Prowse is 45 million and Vestergaard is 40 million. Liverpool: Haha good one lads. Okay look we like you guys so we'll give you 5 million for both and we'll give you first option on Adrian. Phone dies.

    I like that Ward Prowse at Southampton. Not sure if he is good enough to play for us, but he's a fine player.
