  1. A massive couple of years of cricket coming up (especially for England and Australia), starting tonight with the Champions Trophy. In that period, there will also be an Ashes series in both England and Australia, a T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2018 and also a World Cup in England in 2019. From an Aussie perspective, early next year sees us play South Africa away for the first time in a series with more than 4 Tests since 1970! Can't fucking wait.

    Premier League Round Up (Oct 5-6 2019)

    An aging Fernandinho going back into midfield combined with the refs' apparent clampdown on City's tactical fouling will hopefully yield predictable results.

    Probably the only people in football buzzing more than Liverpool supporters right now!

    Who'd have thought at the 90' mark in the Leicester game yesterday that the weekend would turn out the way it has? Crazy!

    I did my bit, was asleep on the couch. Fuck sake!
  6. On a more practical note, the Mane incident brings into focus a couple of seemingly incompatible aspects of the game as it stands: - refs NEVER giving a foul for a player who keeps his feet even if impeded - VAR setting an impossibly high bar for overruling a ref's call either way with the 'clear and obvious' criteria Players are going to continue to go down like Mane did for those very reasons. Both issues are able to be addressed by the FA should they want to.
  7. It was more of a pen than Callejon's, let's just keep it at that. Funnily enough, nobody seemed as angry about that one. No idea why...
  8. When has he ever said a bad word about the club? Like, ever?
  9. Ferguson hoping that fart didn't turn to shit.

    Essentially when it starts to happen is the moment the individual considers himself bigger than the club.

    Napoli 2 Liverpool 0 (Sep 17 2019)

    I use it as an example quite often, but I really do think it's relevant here. And that is if cricket is anything to go by, VAR will be a reasonable system in about a decade.
  13. I'm not sure Mo tries that risky ball if it's 0-0 or 0-1 either. It just smacked of trying to create a chance from very little.
  14. Mo made the right call not to go down under that challenge in the first half. No chance in hell it was given. It's unreal that a system using VAR can allow the Matip drag down one minute, yet give that dive a foul the next. Unfortunately, like cricket, the system gives far too much leeway to protecting the original decision, as opposed to striving for the correct call as often as possible.

    Liverpool +1 on City's GD too, just quietly. Every bit helps.

    Sorry, but you could have Mig in goal with Karius partnering Lovren in front of him and you shouldn't concede like that.

    The shitness of modern football

    Is T-I-M-E a new-fangled term for money now? Honestly, kids these days...
  18. Mane hatrick, with Mo laying each on a plate. You read it here first.

    Sadio Mane

    If Mane was still genuinely pissed about the whole thing, I'm not sure Milner would be using a pic of Sadio for a laugh like that. It suggests to me it's simmered down, although how it all plays out from here will only be seen on the pitch.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Surely the fact head-to-head results are a tiebreaker before goal difference in La Liga has to impact season goal tallies even a bit? Why park the bus and be virtually 0% chance of a result, as opposed to still trying to score and increase it to maybe 15-20%? It will help grab a few unlikely draws/wins throughout the season, but also mean you get tonked by 5+ a few times too.

    Alisson Becker

    The second most handsome Dutchman to play for Liverpool. Behind Dirk, of course.
