    I want my parade

    Couldn't care less if we finish 9th Couldn't care less about the Memes and the Twitter nonsense Couldn't care less if Everton win something and they have one as well Couldn't care less if we didn't have the actual trophy I want a parade, I want the lads on a bus around Liverpool so I can take my kids, I want Lallana and Degsy on that bus, I want them wearing new balance gear. I want the sun to be shining and I want my fucking parade. Do you want your parade?

    Cyberpunk 2077

    It was unplayable on PS4, Managed to get hold of a PS5 and it plays fine. Some frustrating bugs but not all that bad. Story is a bit crap though
  5. You're right in part that's why I said 'replacement', Shelvey was planned as his replacement as was Emre Can.
  6. In all seriousness though, I am unsure how you even go about replacing Hendo. Hendo is everything, the power, the desire, the fact he's come through a tunnel of shit and smelling like roses. You can't buy the experience, and everything that has culminated to make Hendo the man he is today and the impact he has on this team. Every time we've lost a legend you can't just go out and get someone like that person because it doesn't work. Hendo was never Gerrard, he was something different to Gerrard and the team has to adapt. If we want another talismanic midfielder, I do think we should be molding Curtis Jones to be that guy, Hendo was always the Gerrard 'replacement' but Hendo's seems not at all obvious.
  7. I'm not overly fussed about Henderson's replacement because I'll stop supporting the club at the point he leaves
  8. The poor form of the front three can be roughly down to three things in my view 1. Firmino simply not being effective 2. Putting Fabinho and Hendo in defence and losing the impact in midfield 3. Opposition teams being more effective against us We've seen this a fair bit since even before the pandemic, and i don't want to be overly critical of anyone but is this just the start of a natural progression by which we need a new system and new players injected into the front three? Very rarely do you see partnerships last 2-3 seasons and perform at such intensity week in week out so maybe this is it? I'm not saying they'll never score again, have a good game, but will they ever hit the heights needed as a collective again? I know the defence has had a knock on effect on the team but the poor quality and decision making by the front three in recent weeks I think is actually a systemic problem for us now.
  9. We need an evolution of this Liverpool side. System and personnel. This isn't new It was like this before Van Dijk got injured Its been a good run
  10. Jordan Henderson was probably one of few players who came out of the game with any credit I love him, leave him alone.
  11. Less so yesterday but even when Robbo was supporting the attack - both him and Mane ran into brick walls - time and time again. Newcastle was horrific
  12. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but as I said this run of form isn't just limited to this season. Since January we've not been that good, now the intensity, pandemic, and the fact we won the league in the period does mean that the intensity levels had been bound to drop. When I watch them, they look devoid of any novel ideas. Yesterday was slightly different in that Thiago was picking passes that others previously hadn't seen, but that Mane and Robertson link up has produced very little recently, Bobby is effectively a passenger when we need someone to step up, and well Salah has been Salah. I'm probably just venting and i love them all to bits but the pattern of play is now becoming too consistent, and not in a good way. I think we could be entering a period of transition and if we persist with something that may have ran its course then we will suffer for longer.

    Thiago Alcantara

    He just needs a run of games to pick up that sharpness, right idea, right approach, right pass, (sometimes) poor delivery. He'll be sound

    Keir Starmer

    That's probably correct

    Keir Starmer

    Socialism in its purest form is rejected time and time again by a large majority of the electorate, I think that is what living in a political bubble like Liverpool can really hide. Just 10 minutes down the road in either direction of the city the politics are completely different, I'm not saying this is right I'm just saying we can live in our own echo chambers. Again Tony Blair who when you listen to his autobiography could be David Cameron was the last elected Labour lead in what 40-50 years? The media point I think part of the problem is that our Left Wing Commentators are generally abysmal numerous examples of complete idiocy, Someone from Novara Media questioning why the brother of the Manchester bomber got the largest sentence given for such offences. Owen Jones being an absolute wet wipe. There isn't a predominant left wing news force other than perhaps channel 4 you could argue pushing a Left Wing agenda, not a socialist agenda but a left wing one. The labour voting areas that switched to Tory, they're not on twitter, facebook or consume media the way we do. They're reading the Daily Mail but they always have done - take my Grandad who passed away a few years ago. Voted Labour all his life, but read The Times and Daily Mail. Never voted Tory, wanted immigration controls, ex-serviceman, but voted Labour. The far left of the party think that view is incompatible with someone who votes Labour and what happened last election was the conservatives did a fantastic job of convincing the working class that Labour was the party of the elite. Now do I think he would have voted Tory last time around, no I don't. But I understand how others in that position did. So yes the conservatives did a number on the media game, but that's because the far left of the party completely rejected the issues that those voters have been raising around Brexit, Immigration, patriotism and all the things associated with right wing politics, but still voted Labour. I am truly passionate about all of this, because I feel that we're pissing in the wind with the Labour party in its current form. I don't apologise for being what people would call a centrist, but I genuinely hold socialist and left wing ideals, I just have a different view as to how you implement them - the first step being getting into power. The far left of the party are morally right I think, but the poor people can't live off £5 food vouchers whilst being self congratulatory and 'right'

    Keir Starmer

    Fundamentally we live in a Conservative country, its in the blood of the country. It holds mostly centre-right views on immigration, taxes, patriotism and such likes. Your stance on Starmer, is very much the stance I think Momentum took with the rest of the working class, but it took support for Corbyn for granted. Everyone said Corbyn did very badly on the door step for a variety of different reasons. Corbyn's message resonated with a demographic of society which was not representative of the challenges, issues and concerns of the traditional working class voter, so much so that we ended up in the situation we did the other year with a massive Tory majority.

    Keir Starmer

    I think the issue is that unless Momentum and those types split and create their own party, there is no vehicle to rally behind for a left wing socialist cause. The whole thing just depresses me to be honest for a couple of reasons 1. Doesn't matter what happens the government is getting elected again 2. Jeremy Corbyn and his politics (for whatever reason) was rejected and to bang that particular drum again will not advance matters 3. The last Labour leader to be elected was Tony Blair so what does that tell you about this country? I believe Starmer is playing the right cards, doing the right thing. I say this slightly through gritted teeth because I want him to be more aggressive, but if he does that, see point number one.

    LFC moments which live in your head rent free

    John Arne Riise's own goal v Chelsea. I was right behind it in the Kop. Without doubt the worst piece of footballing I have ever had the horror to see all because he wouldn't use his right foot, the absolute weapon.

    Best Christmas Film

    Not strictly a 'Christmas' film, but it's always on tele around this time of year. Although this film is like probably 3 times the age of me, it is still a classic, and enjoyable by anyone at any age. That film is Willy Wonka.....

    Liverpool Women’s FC

    I'm ignorant to the challenges that Women's football is facing to be honest. I can only speak about my approach to it and also understanding the expectation that people have. I only consume the 1st team, and maybe a little bit of the youth side of football. I don't watch anyone other than Liverpool unless there is a big game, and I have never really sat down to watch the women's game. Mainly because I care for it very little, in the same way I care for Cricket very little. I am not trying to be-little it, but the women's game really isn't on my radar and I don't think it will ever be. What is important however as a women's side is that we are well represented, well run and competitive, the challenge you've got is that the fact the side was relegated means very little to me. I'm just not bothered though even if the above is or isn't the case. I can't replicate he intensity I have for the 1st team for the women's side. There has been some success with a women's football club down south which isn't affiliated with the mens side, and is competing at the highest level in women's football. That is not to say there shouldn't be mainstream support from the mens Football League, but I do wonder if to build the affinity for the women's game, actually trying to establish that out of existing mens sides is probably not the way to do it. I don't quite know where I am going with this but in short 1. I don't watch women's football 2. I didn't really care that they got relegated 3. I think if we have a women's football side it should be well run, supported and competitive, but if it isn't and the men's side is successful then its a non issue for me 4. Perhaps the City of Liverpool should establish a Womens Football Side with investments from Liverpool and Everton and grow the game that way - if indeed the ultimate ambition is to have women's football in the spotlight

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    The Club have earned enough kudos to trust them with the approach. On Thiago, I think this will get sorted after the CL
  22. The thirst has been quenched, the dream has been fulfilled. A generation of Liverpool fans (myself included) either not of age, or not even alive when Liverpool last won the league. Every year it has been the same, with a few false dawns in the interim. I feel incredibly look to have witnessed the club win absolutely everything in the 30 years, and now to have witnessed us win the one that kept us awake at night, and caused the biggest of heartaches in 13/14 it's a very fulfilling feeling. I don't think we will ever be able to replicate that intensity unless of course (God forbid) we go even 10 years without a league or CL win, but its done its completed. So what happens next? How do you feel? Where will be in 12 months time, and here is another one - What do we look like in 30 years? I have to admit my first point was to say, let go again, lets win it next year hopefully with some normality in society. I hope the players can hold onto that hunger for that reason.

    I work for a telecoms provider and we used their kit in some of our services 1. It performed better than Cisco and was easier to configure 2. It was much much much more cost effective than buying Cisco 2. There was no obvious signs of anything that could be deemed as malicious I think it's a proxy war for control over mission critical infrastructure between Chinese equipment and American. Might be being slightly ignorant but at worst what they probably (and I have no evidence to back this up) have in their is no more or no less than what Google or Apple are capturing in their devices.
