    Other Football - 2019/20

    Made me smile that!
  2. The imaginations of some of you are both wonderful and disturbing.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    That’s correct, my mistake.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    If CAS have dropped this now, and UEFA are the governing body, then their deliberations would surely be final? So if they said (as the FA did over Suarez) there is evidence “beyond reasonable doubt”, that Club A have breached FFP rules so they are suspended from CL competition for one season, how can that be argued against, especially if they say the decision is final?

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    When Gerrard was 14 he was playing Junior Football for a team called Denburn (I think) in Liverpool. The club I was involved with had an “agreement” at that age group, that some of Denburns lads would play for us in Cup competitions on Sundays, and some of ours would play for them on Saturdays. I remember seeing this gangly lad turn up and then take this one game by the scruff of the neck, score a couple of screamers, then come off with ten minutes left, job done. There were other lads playing who also went on to play for league clubs, Jason Koumas being one, but Gerrard stood out. Conversations were of the “Who the fuck is he?” type. Shortly after, the FA stopped kids associated with professional clubs playing two or sometimes three games in a weekend, which was a good thing really, so we didn’t get to see much more of him but everyone knew who he was. I don’t think many professional players, let alone Tom Davies, will ever be as good as him.

    Silva gets a 1 game ban.

    Anyone surprised? Thought not.

    City (H) Premier League - 10/11/19 - 16:30

    We’ve never been anything special. We’ve never won anything without having had referees/ luck/ the FA/ UEFA etc. on our side. Our players are all on PED’s which is why we never tire, and never get injured. In short, we will never deserve any trophy we win. I have realised this over 50 odd years of supporting Liverpool. So, fuck them, 3 more points. Next.

    City (H) Premier League - 10/11/19 - 16:30

    VAR? Guardiola upset? Everyone thinking it’s a conspiracy to get us to win the League? 3 more points. Next.
  10. If we were to win the League and go to the Semi Final/ Final of the Champions league, then the likelihood of this transfer wouldn’t surprise me. Not much in football does these days. Nike would likely have some input, after all they would want to maximise their potential sales. The only thing I’m not certain of is the potential for Klopp to accept a player.who might end up being like Neymar, pleasing himself what he wants to do and when he wants to do it and with his entourage upsetting all and sundry. These type of players are gaining enough financial influence to be at a level even above their clubs, and I don’t believe FSG are likely to want to have that kind of “opposition” to their authority in the club. As has been said, Sanchez and/or Werner are more likely targets, although I don’t know if they are tied up with Nike or not.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Last season I felt that if we got more points out of the two City games than they did, we’d win the league. We got one and they won it. This season I think pretty much the same, although if it were two draws then I’d still fancy our chances. So far I can’t help but think we haven’t really got out of fourth gear, but we’re six points clear. If/when we get into top gear, then we could get away and gone in half a dozen games and it would be great for that to start on Sunday and leave the baldy little bastard the Champions League to concentrate on.

    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?
