    Man Utd (A) 20/10/19 - Premier League

    Thought we gave them far too much respect in the fixture last season (another draw that cost us the title!) and I’d rather we went out and played our normal game against them and everyone else. We still haven’t got into fifth gear so far this season, when we do, someone will get a real good hiding. As Shanks indicated, let them worry about us. After that then, whatever.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I should really take your view fella, but it irks me that in the 50 or so years I’ve followed the club actually going to games, we have hardly been really credited for having some of the best footballing sides to grace the First Division/Premier League. Praise seems to be grudgingly given if it’s given at all. I would like to think it’s a minority who spew the bile, but I’m not convinced it is, having been in pubs and places through work where I haven’t been known to be a Liverpool fan and hearing utter shite spouted about everything to do with the club. For the first time ever, I really wouldn’t be arsed if Everton went down and stayed down, despite having family members who are blues. And as for the cockneys and mancs, well. . . . .

    Safe to say that no matter what happens going forwards, we will never, ever, be credited with having the best team in the country, with the best coach, playing the best football. We could win the league by a country mile and add the Champions League too and it’d still be fixed, a conspiracy, doping, biased officials etc., etc.. Some of the shite being spouted against us is pretty much bordering on the unforgivable, it is miles away from “Bantz” certainly. Maybe we should just take a “Millwall-esque” attitude towards the rest of the country? No-one likes us so we don’t fucking care. Perhaps we need to be more The Unbearables?

    Leicester (H) 5/10/19 - Premier League

    Did anybody else think the earlier foul on Salah by the centre back should’ve been red? Salah gets past him and he’s through on goal? Choudhary’s was a shithouse “tackle”, but they were guilty of snide challenges throughout the game, Vardy on Adrian, Ndidi, Evans, then to hear Rodgers say they deserved something from the game because they gave us “real problems”? What? One shot on target? Glad to get this one out of the way, when we start playing really well, someone will get a good hiding. Next.
  6. Not giving Adrian flak per se, I just believe Alisson is a better goalkeeper and has a better understanding with, and gives more confidence to, the back four, plus his distribution is better overall. Surely it’s no accident that we haven’t been keeping too many clean sheets since Alisson was injured? Only Burnley and Sheffield Utd in the League. Adrian has been thrown in at the deep end, but I was pleased when we signed him as I thought he was decent at West Ham, and he’s a very good second choice, but that’s it.
  7. Agree, but without expecting us to win every league/champions league game from now on, we can’t take liberties such as those we took at times last night. Salzburg are a relatively unknown quantity, and when they changed formation a bit, we didn’t have a response until they’d scored three goals. Wiser teams than them will be less naive and we might not get the chances to get back in front. Better to get the defence back not conceding, and by that I mean Alisson back in goal and Matip in alongside Van Dijk. Gomez is quick but he has to be to cover mistakes up, such as leaving Haaland unmarked for their third goal last night. This could be a good kick up the backside for us because there’s been games that we’ve been sloppy in this season, and, while I accept we’re unbeaten in the league, keeping the goals against to zero is the best way to ensure we stay ahead of City.

    Fernandinho takes out a Zagreb player around the halfway line. They don’t do tactical fouls though. Oh no.

    Crazy as it might seem, this could go to penalties. We need that second goal.

    Tell them to bin off BMD and we’ll add another 20,000 seats to Anfield and use Goodison as an overflow car park.

    Part of the fun is they finish the season well, that leads to less disgruntlement going into the summer, then they buy a few players, offer new updates on the new stadium and the hope rises again going into the new season. Seems that they’re worse this season than last though. City will have a field day next week.

    This is spot on, and emphatically describes the problem bloos have had since Heysel. Many of them at the time thought they could have won the cup in 1986, but not all of them did. However, what has come about is that some who wouldn’t have even been born then have become convinced they were a shoe in to win it, regardless of the fact there were another dozen teams who could have said the same, us being one had Heysel not happened and we’d have beaten Juventus that night. But hey, why let cold hard facts get in the way of explaining 33 years of pretty much total failure as being down to us and us alone.

    VAR shit show 19/20

    Makes my piss boil when you hear ex-pros and pundits say “He was touched, he had a right to go down”. Fuck off. He didn’t. He has a duty to play to the rules of the game and they specifically forbid simulation. Callejon knew he was going to dive, as have many in the past, Suarez, Hazard, Young, Sterling, Ronaldo and that young fucker at United being a few of many. Robertson was naive in putting out his leg, as it was odds on the player would dive. It’s another example of our game management being lax. They we’re getting desperate, they had been trying it on, so just don’t get drawn into making those “challenges”. Yes, the ref was conned and VAR did whatever it did, not that I fully understand it still, but understanding that the player was likely to try and win a penalty that way should’ve stopped the challenge Robbo made, and led to him maybe jockeying the player better, or even pulling back and making Callejon look the absolute cunt that he was.
