    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I'm sure the blues will refer to him as Andrew rather than Andy.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I fail to see how City continuing to break FFP rules make a Super League more palatable. I recall reading Real and Barca had guarantees on more money, how there'd being no protection on where games would be played in future and how it would dilute competition even further. It would also be a great way for a franchise like New York City to become massive in time if they entered (which they would eventually). I'd rather Liverpool won occasional trophies in the current set up where I can actually go to games than win occasional trophies in an even less attractive set up where I can't.

    Euro 2020(21)

    I totally respect the views of anyone who wants England to lose but while not mad, passionate about it I want them to win it. My view on it is that while there are plenty of cunts in this country there's also plenty in every team's fanbase including ours and the national sides from elsewhere. I hate the government, the media, the empire and the war references and I'm a republican so won't sing God Save The Queen but I've travelled about enough to know most people are decent and won't spend their days singing about German bombers or looking down their nose at others. I've also spent time abroad which focuses my mind on it a little too. I'm from England and while not exactly full of pride in that I also have more staked here than any other place.

    Totally agree that the players were there to be successful in a different system. Eriksson was a weak link as manager in the same way Southgate is now.

    It looks great on paper (James apart) but they played 4-4-2 with no natural holding midfielder and Scholes on the left wing. Eriksson just tried to force his best players on to the pitch in a system that would always get found out at some point.

    Worst "top" player ever?

    Edgar Davids always comes to mind for me on this sort of topic. He was just a clogger who spent his career kicking people but managed to get his face everywhere as he wore a funky pair of glasses. I agree on Willian being over-rated too. A very inconsistent player who's averaged 5 Premier League goals a season playing as an attacking player for a top club for most of his career.

    Other football - 2020/21

    I'd much rather they followed the Middlesbrough route after losing in the UEFA cup final of appointing Gareth Southgate and getting relegated within 3 years.

    Man Utd Fans

    If they had an oil state sportswashing their human rights abuses away while spending billilons on them they'd be rioting as much as their neighbours. Fuck them.

    New Super League to Rival CL - 11 Clubs Sign Up

    All of the owners of the other 14 are very much similar to the owners of the 'Big Six' in the greedy, horrible cunts stakes. They just don't own a brand appealing enough to have had the invitation. The teams that tried to start this Super League are fucked now though when it comes to negotiations. It was their nuclear deterrant. The threat of it was more beneficial to them than actually the reality of doing anything with it. They've just lost their biggest bargaining chip

    New Super League to Rival CL - 11 Clubs Sign Up

    When Hicks and Gillett were here I had fire in my belly and was busy sending emails and taking part in protests but I just feel apathy now. Football has been an obsession for me for nearly 40 years and given me some amazing experiences and memories but I'm done. I've loved it less and less with each passing year and this is the final straw for me. My membership is being cancelled in the Summer and when my ticket credits are gone I know there'll be no way back. It's sad but I've had enough of lining the pockets of greedy cunts to take in a product which is progressing to bland, light entertainment. Time to go and find something else positive to focus my spare time on.

    I was mates with a Leeds season ticket holder at uni around the time we signed him who'd been moaning about him for about a year before he came to Liverpool. That made me pay more attention to how he was playing and the excitement passed me by when we got him as he wasn't great in his last year there. As others have said he looked fantastic as a young player but the injuries took the pace out of his game. I met him a few years back and he seemed like a nice fella. He said going off in Istanbul was the toughest thing in his career but he knew he'd picked up an injury and needed to come off as he'd be letting the team down to play on when they could bring a fully fit player on instead. I felt a bit of sympathy for him especially when the consequences of Karius staying on in Kiev were what they were some time after that (although I acknowledge he may not have realised he was concussed).

    We can’t carry on like this.

    One of the highlights of my youth was being mentioned in the Beano as the 6 year old from Liverpool who'd forgot to write his name on the slip when it was sent it in.

    There's no distrubution of goals at all which is the big problem. Only Salah and Jota (when he's been fit) have scored regularly. The narrow wins became draws and narrow defeats when Jota got injured and we became completely dependent on Salah. Every combination of our entire midfield has 3 league goals between them and the last centre half to score at a set piece was Van Dijk in the first game against Leeds. We rarely shoot from distance, we have no physical presence in the box at any time and our midfielders hold back and don't make late runs in. It doesn't make for a prolific team especially when you add two hugely under-performing forwards.

    Glad that's helped a few people. I just stumbled across it earlier trying to find some info for my Dad as he was told by his GP he'd need to wait a bit longer. Not sure why it isn't publicised.
