    Other football - 2020/21

    I've got no idea whether it's an anti-Liverpool conspiracy, a pro-Manc conspiracy or whatever but I really don't think there's any remorse from the Premier League for the state of decision making in games at the moment. There've been 9 different teams top of the league this season and there's 8 points separating the top 7 at the end of January. The Story Of The Season is going to be how competitive and amazing the PL is (Anyone Can Beat Anyone), and the fact there've been some dodgy decisions just adds to the OOH CONTROVERSY ALERT narrative. In years to come Tyler will be talking about "the famously open 2020-21 season" on comms ad fucking nauseam. The PL probably piss themselves when someone benefits from a dodgy decision and Twitter just descends into loads of stills being shared and smug mancs going "cry more". Hype, hype and more hype, they couldn't give a shit about anything else. I think someone has said on here before (apologies, I can't remember who): the PL aren't arsed about what's right - the established fanbase will probably all continue to tune in anyway: we grumble about it but we're addicts and will keep coming back. Making it controversial and (as a result artificially) competitive might bring in a new breed of fan though - hooked on the drama and the confrontation of it all, and guarantees a level of hype which keeps it front and centre. We're a few notches away from WWE and it's fucking shit.

    Fuck off Frank Lampard

    Chelsea supposedly sniffing around Tuchel, Nagelsmann and Rangnick now according to the Athletic, i.e. a German speaker. Absolute joke of a football club, basing their entire managerial appointment around a single issue of getting a tune out of a couple of players. "We've just spent a lot of money on two Germans, but they're not playing well. Any ideas why?" "Maybe they need someone to talk German in coaching sessions?" "That's it! And a German manager won the league last year as well. This is the best idea ever." Shades of hiring Rafa Benitez to get the best out of Fernando Torres, although at least Rafa had a recent history of getting a tune out of Fernando Torres. Why Thomas Tuchel - a man who's both never crossed paths with Kai Havertz or Timo Werner and has been sacked from a big club job due to problems with egos - is potentially the man for the job because of his nationality alone is absolutely fucking wild.

    The New Cricket Thread

    Not having it that it's the same as Ruddock putting down Cantona's collar. Cantona didn't need his collar to play the game and score goals, so that's an irritation. Pant needs his guard to know where his stumps are - yeah he can remark it so it's not the worst type of cheating, but I can still envisage a scenario where he forgets, or loses sight of it or whatever, and loses his off stump as a result of someone else's "not in play" actions. It's not full-on cheating, but, with his reputation...

    FA Cup draw

    It’s rigged. The odds of our difficulty of cup draws combined with City’s over the past five years is something like 500,000-1. No chance it’s a free draw, absolutely no chance.

    Nicked off Twitter but nails the problem with giving oxygen to fucking cretins like Toby cunting Young, vinegar tits Hartley Brewer and the Digby Chicken Caesar in waiting Laurence Fox.

    Southampton 1 Liverpool 0 (Jan 4 2021)

    Ref wasn't the reason we lost, but he was one of them. As you say, we didn't 'deserve' much from that performance, but the performance still warranted two goalscoring opportunities that were denied from us by a third party (and wouldn't be to certain other teams). I don't get why it's controversial to point it out.
  8. Fuck me we’ve been shit but fuck me, this refereeing performance is outrageous.

    Aye he's an opportunistic toerag, all in on the party line of tearing the NHS to bits when he was health secretary but then emerges from backbench obscurity singing about protecting it when people are applauding it on their doorsteps. I've no doubt he'll be put forward as the One Nation 'moderate' the second Johnson has fulfilled his purpose of getting the Red Wall onside with a culture war, rebadging a worse version of Theresa May's deal with some bluster now that he's managed to stall and exhaust all other options (which impresses gammon twats whose experience of negotiating comes down to getting 50% off a metallic paint job on their Cavalier) and 'delivered' Brexit, and then been the fall-guy in the inevitable post-Covid inquiry (which will allow them to parrot how accountable they are when all it will amount to is "Boris got Covid and lost his nerve and therefore all faulty decision-making rests with that). They'll proudly put forward Jeremy "Champion of the NHS and Schoolchildren" Hunt forward as the sensible candidate and a New Era can begin. And people will fall for it and he'll get on with the usual mandate of slash and burn whilst the next leader emerges untainted by association. Fucking xenomorphs.

    Fuck off Frank Lampard

    You'll have to point me to the transfer window where LFC profited from a global crisis, and Klopp was bought the cream of Bundesliga talent in order for the "needs time" comparison to fully stack up. Fucking hell, he's been bought Ziyech, Werner, Havertz, Thiago Silva, Chilwell and Mendy in a single window. They replaced the most expensive keeper in the world with another £20m+ one less than two years later. He's got Pulisic, Jorginho and Giroud on the bench. They've got CL football and a good set of young players. It's light years away from what Klopp came into - Lampard has got at least a two year head start on where Klopp was starting from and I'd argue three or four, personally. "Needs time to build his team" give me fucking strength. They finished third and won the fucking Europa League the year before he started, he didn't take over at fucking Sheffield United. People talk about Sarri as if he was there for thirty years and built the youth academy with his bare hands when actually he did a decent job in his single season and, Jorginho aside (poor Frank, lumbered with a donkey like Jorginho), it's not like the team is stacked with 'his' players who need to be phased out in order to move forward with a new style of play. In all seriousness I don't think Lampard is a terrible manager. But he's a Championship level manager at best for the moment as evidenced by the fact he couldn't get Derby out of the second tier even with a load of Chelsea loanees two years ago. You could give the Chelsea job to any Championship manager (probably League One as well actually) and they'd probably get at least the same tune out of this group of players, if not more: he's got the gravitas of a club legend and that's all he'd have over them. Doesn't stop him pontificating on what's right and wrong in the game though, nor did it stop him being a dressing room sneak who either actively helped get managers the sack or did nothing to reel in others who did. So fuck him. I hope Pep Lijnders fucking webs the cunt all over Anfield in a few months time.

    Got to be able to give credit to Pep and City here, being able to pull together such a performance from such a scratch side of misfits, freebies and academy kids.
  12. I don’t think we were that bad tonight - well, not after about the 30 minute mark. If we’d beaten West Brom 3-0 and then that happened I’d be more sanguine about it. We were not great but not terrible, and created enough to win the game. In isolation it’s just one of those things, but unfortunately it’s part of a season where we’ve chucked a load of points away against shite and it’s threatening to cost us. Still though, I’m far more concerned about the West Brom and Fulham performances than that and Thiago raised is about 26 gears when he came on; that bodes well.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    There isn’t a fanbase around that uses the “haha lol I was fishing got you” line more is there?

    We need this lad back asap. Brucey will have watched that and gone “seems like a plan.”
