    Adama Traore

    Our players seemed very "chummy" with him last night. Picking him up, asking how he was, hand touch here and there. Almost like they were trying to become mates. Welcome Adama

    After match pitch maintenance

    A mate of mine, who sits on the Kop, tells me the centre of our pitch is looking like it needs some attention. Not obvious from my vantage point in the SKD

    Man Utd (H) Premier League - 19/1/20

    United fans celebrate the day in the year when Liverpool cannot, mathematically, win the League. They might cancel it this year but we can repay the favour... There have been three iconic seasons since the start of the PL; Utd's treble, Arsenal's invincibles and Citeh massing 100 points. We could match all three this year.

    VAR shit show 19/20

    Apologies to any women reading this who may not follow the analogy but VAR checking goals is like having sex with missus when, at the crucial moment, she says, “don’t stop”. Too late, of course, but it completely ruins the moment. It doesn’t matter whether the check take 4 minutes of 4 seconds; it is lost. Id scrap it entirely but the best adjustment I’ve heard is for games to refereed as before but with the ref having the ability to ask to see a screen if there is something he is uncertain about. Once he has pointed to the centre circle it is a goal.

    Man Utd (H) Premier League - 19/1/20

    We need to beat these (and WHU) to complete a clean sweep of victories against every team in the league. We’ve never done that before.

    VAR shit show 19/20

    How does the LSE factor in our mentality? I am very confident if our Wolves goal is disallowed or their goal awarded we go on and get another. No one will ever know for sure so no point drawing up "what if" tables.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I am uncertain as to what more we could have done to acknowledge our part/ responsibility for the Heysel disaster; self flagellation, don a hair shirt? The Club and fans have put their hands up and undertaken measures designed for apology and conciliation. And we should not forget that Heysel did not, in itself, result in a ban for English teams; it was more the final (and worst) straw over 15-20 years of trouble involving English clubs. The reality is Liverpool fans were not involved in anything like the violence that characterised many fan groups travelling to the continent; we had a reputation for shoplifting but not violence unlike, WHU, Utd, Leeds, Spurs and others. And our supporters that day in Belgium included fans of other English fans who had gone for the "craic". As I type this I can see others reading it as a poor excuse for our behaviour that day - whatever the provocation - but the biased stance taken in that article needs to be read in the wider context.
  8. I think, rather than Stevie G, this man is our next manager

    Spurs (A) Premier League 11/1/2020 - 17:30

    Mourinho wants to win a trophy and, looking at the line up in the 3rd round, is targeting the FA Cup. With a replay coming up, hopefully, he will prioritise the Middlesbrough game.

    Liverpool 1 Everton 0 (Jan 5 2020)

    They turned us round! 8000 fans behind the Anny Road goal and they chose to kick into it first half to upset us? I've said before, we are in their heads; this confirmed it for me.
  11. If we beat these and sneak past the ‘ammers in one of the two games we have against them we will have beaten every team in the league for the first time in PL history, maybe ever.

    Have we got our money back from Japanese shirt sales yet?

    Leicester City 0 Liverpool 4 (Dec 26 2019)

    I said a few weeks ago I don’t think any opposition fans will have left a game with us necessarily thinking they had seen the Champions; then came Bournemouth where that changed and then yesterday. The world watched the Champions elect last night and, whilst I won’t believe it just yet, if Citeh, Chelsea or Utd were in our position we would have written it off already. My lad has seen us win everything save the league; hopefully, we can put that right this season.
  14. When the PL broke away from the FL there was an agreement that Clubs would compete in the League Cup. It has come to mean little to Clubs with bigger fish to fry (it was important 30 years ago) but it remains a useful earner for many EFL Clubs who can generate crucial income by playing a top PL side (even with a weakened side). We need to recognise its value to the wider football community before top PL sides bin it.
  15. Loads of Brazilians here teasing us before the match about the single star they have above their crest - “you haven’t got one”. I argued we would by tomorrow so delighted to have shut the cocky little Latin types up :). Far from meaningless in my book and another “major trophy” ahead of the mancs
