    Newcastle 0 Liverpool 0 (Dec 30 2020)

    "...the only positive being we finally ended our wait for the title...." As consolations go...
  2. What's up with Trent? So lethargic and sloppy. Is he fully fit?

    Liverpool 2 Spurs 1 (Dec 16 2020)

    I suspect the reason Moaninho got so upset is because he feels, for the first time in a while, that he is competitive. Bit of a way to go, Jose

    Away form

    I can't be the only one who was thinking, on Sunday afternoon after fortuitously getting back on even terms, a title winning side will go on to win this? I thought the attitude looked poor first half when only Ali and Hendo turned up but much better second when the management had got stuck into them. Gotta be better tonight and I'm sure it will be. Then carry that over to Palace and we're away.

    Spurs (H) Premier League - 16/12/20 - 20:00

    We need to put Spurs - players, management and fans - back into their box tonight. Big performance required

    FC Midtylland 1 Liverpool 1 (Dec 9 2020)

    There was a few players there that, clearly, needed the game - Trent, Naby, Tsimikas to name but 3. Thought Clarkson started well but faded. Rhys, on the other hand, has looked very promising in all of his appearances. Big, strong and good distribution. Talking of which, Kelleher has been praised for his distribution but it was poor last night. But, who cares? Coming first in the Group looks a little bit more important than it has in recent years. No team in the runners up section should be overly dangerous (as long as we have a keeper should we get Atletico).

    Liverpool 4 Wolves 0 (Dec 6 2020)

    Ive not liked coady ever since he turned us round for the last game of the 18/19 season. As you say, he was anticipating contact for the pen so I wouldn’t be too critical of him going down - as much self preservation as anything else. Klopp loves gini and must pull some strings to get him signed

    VAR Thoughts?

    That is absolutely fine as long as Officials start making decisions again. At the moment, they avoid anything contentious in the belief VAR will correct any mistake afterwards.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Wonder if joe Anderson’s arrest will affect the BMD development?

    VAR Thoughts?

    We, the fans, together with pundits and reporters, are to blame for VAR. We complained about “incompetent” officials who were not up to the job to the point that referees and assistants felt under siege. They were fair game to be abused at every level and this could include physical abuse in lower leagues. The response from officials was “we need help” and, with cameras at all top games this was the obvious answer. Most pundits and fans seemed to think it was a good idea and many still do now suggesting it is just the way VAR is being implemented that is the problem. It isn’t. Having accepted video evidence should be used the anomaly now is that every decision (or non-decision) should be checked - was that a corner, a foul, did it hit a hand outside the penalty area? Some calls are subjective, others a matter of fact (subject to the frame freezing issue) and so debates will continue even with VAR. The answer, for me, is to scrap it combined with an acceptance that officials are not incompetent or biased, they are the best we have doing an incredibly difficult job, for the most part extremely well. We, fans, pundits and reporters, need to grow up. Mistakes are part of the game whether made by players, managers or officials. Of course we’d rather every decision was spot on but VAR isn’t really helping here is it? Officials have decided not to make decisions in contentious situations relying on VAR to bail them out. They need to go back to putting a flag up, blowing the whistle as they used to and we can get back to the immediacy and free flowing nature of the game we used to love. As a fall back position, I would accept a man in a van asking the onfield ref to view footage of a blatant error where an embarrassing mistake has been made. Everything else we live with. ive not missed a domestic match (and few abroad) for years (before Covid) but a combination of watching on TV (which I find very nerve wracking) and VAR are killing my love for the game. I’d rather go and watch my lad for a fraction of the ticket price and much less travelling. At least then, when he puts the ball into the net I can cheer

    Liverpool 3 Leicester City 0 (Nov 22 2020)

    Klopp seems to have the measure of Brendan. Leicester have been batting above their average since he arrived but we have made games against them relatively comfortable. I know last year's home game required a very late penalty but we did batter them for most of the game. I thought Naby was good up to his injury and was delighted with the overall performance. Curtis is gonna be great but it does irritate me when he hangs around opponents to apologise after fouling them. Twice the game has continued and he has taken himself out of the fray to say sorry and, on Sunday, the game had stopped but he still appeared overly apologetic. C'est la guerre, mate, no one's gonna say sorry to you unless they're trying to avoid a card.

    Mohamed Salah

    Not sure how it works in the world of PL footballers but I've just finished 2 weeks of self isolation after being visited by my son who tested positive. He had to isolate for 10 days from the test, 14 days after he believes he was infected.

    I’d be lying if I tried to blame predictive text. Sancho of course

    January 2021 Transfer Thread

    Interesting article in The Times today. Looks at an AI player recruitment tool and suggests Tah is our best option for CB. Also suggests Sanchez's best move (for him) is to Liverpool.
