    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I think Kuyt was overenthusiastically jumping into a block of the long ball up the channel, so it's more of a flying charge-down (bit like you'd see on a drop goal attempt in rugby) than a two-footed tackle. But it's proper reckless as he's so out of control, and he's damned lucky he didn't see red. It was 13 years ago, mind, so it's completely irrelevant to the actions of Jordan Pickford. Not that this matters in Blooland.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    His transfer record is a bit concerning for City fans to be honest. There's way too many 'meh' players on it. Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Gundogan, Rodri, Cancelo; all players who've come in and, whilst they're useful enough players who've not exactly tanked, they cost shitloads and haven't really nailed down places in the first team or looked much better than they did when they first arrived. Other than Silva, Ederson and Laporte (and, to be fair to him, Kyle Walker) - who are easily balanced out by flops like Stones, Mendy, Bravo, Danilo and Nolito - he seems genuinely incapable of extracting value from the transfer market. Compare with Jurgen: I'd put Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain in that Mahrez/Jesus category, but every other major signing we've made under Klopp has generally been a success and improved us. I know transfers are more complex now than one man's judgement, but there's something that isn't working at City.

    Ancelotti is a wanker. Glad we mugged them in 2005, shouldn’t have let Reno pat the trophy should you dickhead?

    Aye he can completely fuck off, the opportunistic prick. This smacks of "people get injured all the time and Van Dijk is no saint himself" - he could easily have just said that Rodriguez is injured and will miss the game but he has to call out who and how, because, let's face it, Everton are the real wounded party here. Even though Rodriguez was so 'injured' he wasn't subbed when Ancelotti had 3 subs left, and played the remaining 85 minutes of the game. His Napoli teams were snidey little fucks towards us every time we played them, and now his Everton side are thugs and he has the gall to try and equate a niggle with an assault in the aftermath. Everton has completely touched him, he'll no doubt be going on about 'Il Club del Popolo' soon enough.

    Ajax 0 Liverpool 1 (Oct 22 2020)

    I have found myself wondering whether the loss of Van Dijk will - while not quite be a blessing in disguise - be compensated in other ways by the rest of the team showing a bit more focus and aggression now that they know the best CB on the planet isn't behind them to cover for it. It reminds me a bit of some cricket matches when teams pack their order with all-rounders to shore up the batting, and an element of "fuck it, we bat deep, somebody else will cover if I get out cheaply" that subconsciously creeps in, and the team doesn't score many more runs than they otherwise would have. If the team picks just six batsmen then those players know that it's on them, there's no back up if they fuck up, so the subconscious focus is right there. Klopp seemed happy with the mentality. Structurally we've defended better, but there was a bit of scrap and digging in which makes me hopeful we'll be alright after a bit of fine tuning.

    Fucking hell, saw Ancelotti taking more of the Red Ron pathway through Everton management than the Gollum one.

    I’d bet every penny I have that JaneP has never donated so much as a lentil to a food bank, the grandstanding fucking cunt. Oh, and ‘Radford’ IS a taxpayer - and probably pays more than all of them combined, so they’re thick as well as cruel. Nasty, horrible, selfish, entitled and callous bastards. The blinkered selfishness displayed there just makes me want to wish ruin and hardship on each and every one of them. That or a big fuck off baseball bat to the head.

    And walked into that machine gun fire because a bloke with a moustache who went to Eton told them to. The English are a nation of forelock tuggers and I hate it.

    New European super league?

    Whilst I can't say I'm massively enamoured with another nail being enthusiastically hammered into the coffin of the sport I love, these days I'm increasingly thinking "fuck it" a la Stronts above. Seeing social media and the joy that loads of fans are taking from Virgil's injury, taking the piss out of us for showing any kind of concern, digging up completely unrelated injuries players have incurred from challenges with our players and then resorting to tired old bollocks like "outraged by everything", "always the victims" and so on, I really don't give two shiny shites about football in this country, followed as it is by pondlife and tedious little fucking virgins. We're one of the biggest draws in the league and we have to share everything that comes with that interest with clubs whose fanbases despise us and revel in our misfortune. And when we recently suggested proposals that would distribute money more evenly with the lower tiers of the game, we were blocked by teams who wanted to share less - and yet they're the ones portrayed as Robin Hoods of the game. The game in this country is populated entirely by tribal fuckwits who don't give a shit about us but want a share of the gravy train proceeds. Fuck them all.

    "Always the victim" he writes, whilst trying to claim his fucking football club were the victims of a disaster where 39 lives were lost. Mental, mental scum.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Fuck, yeah I would be. I mean, dropping him for no reason would be a complete non-starter as his tantrum would be so wild you'd see it from the Wirral, but if he's out the team on a suspension, it's a nice opportunity to give Olsen a run out and if he doesn't do anything to warrant being dropped again...

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Not arsed whether Pickford plays again this season; he's shite and I'm pleased Ancelotti has to persist with him a while longer instead of having an excuse not to pick the liability. Fucking ridiculous that once again the PGMOL has done its traditional "our lads saw it at the time and our lads are never wrong when they see stuff so nothing to see here" act, though. Wish my work was as self-accountable as that. Hopefully as someone said above, our "seeking of clarification" is as much about not letting that VAR ref within 200 miles of our games: whether he's a biased manc, got a chip on his shoulder after Robbo and Klopp tore into him after the Burnley game, or just plain old incompetent, it's my sincere wish that I never see his name come up in relation to LFC again.

    Yep, this is what happens when you have no strategy. Just a government of campaigning personalities led by a bullshitter-in-chief, who can't do anything except put a half-baked measure in place to react to yesterday's headlines. NZ, all of these countries who've been "successful" have basically had a general strategy - in most cases to suppress the virus by any means necessary, and all else is secondary to that (but the quicker you 'beat' the virus the quicker you can just reboot your economy). Our cunts have tried to be far cleverer than any of them actually are, by trying to weight beating the virus off against trying to limit damage to the economy, largely by trying to just ban socialising and leaving pretty much everything else untouched. As a result they've done neither. The incompetence is staggering. They're absolute failures, and yet there'll still be idiots who'll worship the ground they walk on because they "stand up for Britain (i.e. Brexit)."

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Having seen the Everton response on Twitter, I think the decision was absolutely fair enough. Coote sat in the VAR suite and reviewed all the footage of the incident, then all of the footage of Dirk Kuyt on Phil Neville, and the Gerrard two footer 16 years ago, and the Van Dijk tackle on Dries Mertens, and every other tackle made by any Liverpool player in the last 37 years and decided that Pickford's actions were kind of in the middle of all of that so no red. That's how decisions are made, isn't it?
