    Liverpool 2 Chelsea 2 (Aug 14 2019)

    VAR is taking the joy and spontaneity out of the game. I didn’t celebrate either of our goals as I thought Bobby was offside - he wasn’t but TV made it look as if it was. Neither did I celebrate the missed penalty because Adrian was off his line and it should have been retaken. Bin it soonest. Football matches he’s should be a self contained event involving 22 players and 3 officials. The rest of us are spectators. Getting decisions right is not is not as important as some would suggest. The game is better for the errors of all involved (and their managers). if we want to treat it as a business remember I am the customer. I subscribe to Sky, BT and LFC TV. I pay for a season ticket, buy merchandise and spend money in the ground. I’m the customer and I am scared VAR will ruin the game I love. Get rid.

    If you had changed “focus” to “order” you could have used the acronym “soccer”. Poor effort really

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    At the beginning of last season we gave Shaqiri and Studge some minutes as required. Having Pepe to fill that role would be an upgrade and give us a significant opportunity to rotate later in the season when needed. And all of the front 3 have had extended seasons to date. And we may not be as lucky with injuries next season.

    Getting to Kiev and Accomodation

    The saga of Worldchoice Sports and their cancelled flights is well documented on here but my small claim in the County Court has only just been settled. Having had my flight cancelled on the Thursday afternoon before the game I had to fly to Warsaw (from Luton) and take a 20 hour coach trip to Kiev, watch the game, crash and repeat in the opposite direction. I asked them to refund the car park fee I had paid to leave my car at John Lennon; I didn't think my request was unreasonable in the circumstances. They refused but the Court has found in my favour costing them another £50 in Court fees (plus whatever their Solicitor charged them to defend the case).

    Torres

    I still like to think he knew he was finished when he went to Chelsea for £50m. With the benefit of hindsight, great business

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I don't live on Merseyside anymore and, perhaps, have a different perspective than those that do but I don't think we are the most hated Club in the country at all. And to claim that we are opens us up to familiar criticisms. What has happened of late is that we have won something. All those sad people (eg Jason Cundy) who have revelled in the fact we have come up short a good deal in the recent past are very sheepish and are trying to create this image of us being "unbearable" to give themselves a fig leaf to hide behind. But, for the most part, more balanced individuals are pleased or indifferent to our success.

    How many assists has Ronaldo made?
  10. When Big Ali B kept that late Napoli effort out
  11. I know someone who works for Spurs. They were supplied by the Club because they thought the stadium would be overwhelmed by our banners and they needed to compete on some level. It feels pompous and arrogant to gloat at this but we are better than anyone else in this field.
  12. We learnt from the Anfield game; didn't let them switch the ball across the pitch as they did in the second half then. We deliberately played the ball forward quickly to take advantage of our pace up front against their slow central defenders. Didn't come off but meant they had to play deeper which resulted in them being contained and having to go back to their keeper to keep the ball. Being a goal up in a couple of minutes meant we could let them have the ball and attack us. They didn't have a shot on target until the last 15 minutes or so and hardly threatened. We had a load or corners, Robbo and Millie's shots and were at least as dangerous as them; not sure how anyone can say they were the better team. We were generous to their fans afterwards but know that, if we had lost, they would have a song about beating "them scousers" to be aired next season; we will sing about winning number 6 in Madrid. I could be unbearable but the only people who will find me (or any other Red) unbearable will be those who have given us so much stick for not wining anything or "bottling it" over the last few years. Serves them right.
  13. Someone was saying yesterday that we didn't have a single player in the Final XI that played in Jurgen's first game (against Spurs). Spurs had 7.
