  1. Midfield is offering nothing currently. No chances made going forwards, so it’s difficult to see what the kid Blair is like and Divock won’t do anything unless it’s put on a plate for him. Thought Jones and Oxlade might have been more influential.

    Sad. Seemed an all round good guy.

    Man Utd (A) - Sun 24th Oct 2021 (4:30pm)

    Telling that Klopp said after the game that once we’d scored the fifth, it wasn’t about humiliating the opposition, but more about trying to ensure we got no more injuries. Almost like a tacit agreement that if we don’t take the piss, you don’t take any more liberties?

    We lose and they get 5 more nails to hammer into Rafa’s coffin lid.

    Can Martin Samuel get any lower?

    Would be interesting to see where Samuel’s income comes from. All of it. I don’t read him, other than what’s quoted on here, and certainly nothing from the Daily Xenophobe, in fact the last time I remember hearing him say anything was on Sunday Supplement years ago. He was arguing how “bigger” clubs should be handicapped to give the likes of Everton, Newcastle and West Ham, “real football clubs”, a fairer crack of the whip. Think it was when City were just beginning to gather momentum. I haven’t missed him at all surprisingly.

    Would you welcome a Sterling return - Yes or No ?

    Poor finisher. Dives far too much. There are better players around for the money he’d cost/want. Bellingham for a start.

    Don’t know if this has been posted, but the Fire Alarm was set off in the Atalanta teams hotel during the night. One of the wives was quoted as saying she didn’t think it was accidental. Desperate?
  9. Kicked the ball away and their players were up in arms, strangely.
  10. And Griezeman will be out for the return. Horrible bastards deserve fuck all with their shithousing tactics, they’d be a good team if they concentrated on playing football.
  11. Mcmanaman “Jota got away with one there” Twat. Their player dived you prick! And also Griezeman was”unlucky” to get sent off, yet Mane deserved to be walked against City that time I suppose? Best listened to with the sound off.
  12. Just blow the whistle now and get out with the three points.
  13. Biggest bunch of shithouses in European football these, and that’s taking PSG into account too.
  14. Opened up far too easily after going into the lead. Getting between the man and the goal is a basic skill and too many of ours are being run past because they won’t adhere to that. There’s nobody exempted from that either, Virgil was turned completely the wrong way when Griezeman went past him to score the second. Alisson has prevented us from conceding another two, but there’s a need for more cover in midfield as they’re running through us because of a lack of pace from Milner and Hendo and apart from the goal, Keita hasn’t added much if anything. Since we scored our second we’ve hardly threatened, which is disappointing to say the least, and our usual build up play has been negated by their dropping and playing a back five, which is exactly how they have played against us previously. Some changes required to get out of this with a draw or, hopefully, a win but this is where Klopp earns his corn when presented with this kind of problem.
  15. Just hope we get through tonight’s game against Atleti with no injuries. Simeone knows our game against United is big and they, and United, will try to stop Salah by any means necessary and not always within the laws of the game. The United game likely won’t be a cakewalk as they’ll line up not to get a pasting and hope for a break or two, they have enough to suffocate us and more than enough to nick a goal or two. Taylor could play a major part in how much United get away with or not. Probably find a draw would be the best we could expect, even though on form, we should twat them.

    I recall back in the old Shanklygates days, when rival supporters could “banter” with each other on the same website, Toon and Ev fans used to go at each other about who was the biggest club out of the two, well, it was really who was the least unsuccessful. Our blue brethren would argue they’d won the Cup Winners Cup and FA cup more recently, the Toon would argue they had bigger support even though they hadn’t won anything since the Cities FairsCup in 1969. There was a young chap called Dave Kelly in the Blue corner who seemed to be right pissed that we had won anything. Happy days.
  17. They are erratic, so for that reason alone I’m not going to crow too loudly at the moment. Just for once though, I’d love us to give them the good hiding they’ve avoided for so long.

    Mark Lawrenson

    Both he and Hansen were brilliant, ball playing centre backs, in my opinion and only Virgil and Joel Matip have come close to them for our club, and probably in the country. As a pundit, he’s not the best, but there’s not much to beat out there and so he’s tolerable and has the kudos of being an ex-Red in his favour. Pleased he’s recovering.

    Jurgen’s press conference yesterday was a bit sobering I thought. When he was making references to Newcastle becoming a “superpower” and that he hoped FFP would be enforced ……”whatever that is these days” he looked like a man who was thinking “What’s the point of me trying my best when these cunts can ride roughshod over everything I’m trying to do?”. He was the only boss quoted saying that the Premier League bosses had been quiet until the deal was pretty much done, none of the other bosses criticised it directly, with Guardiola saying “Looks like the Newcastle fans I saw were happy. It's business, people took over a club and the people of Newcastle are happy. I'm far away from why the decision was made." What a cop out, but then, he’s hardly going to criticise, is he? Especially as that could be his next job, unlimited funds and an actual crowd in the ground.

    Greatest Away Trips

    First year I was going out with my missus, she got tickets from Les Silver, the Leeds Chairman for her, her mate and two relatives/friends to go and see us play there in 1975. She got them because the year before, she and her mate had gone there and were leaving the ground when a Leeds fan grabbed at her scarf, which she wouldn’t give up. She and her mate ended up in Leeds Infirmary after this brave Leeds fan and his mates decided to give them both a kicking. News of this reached Leeds United and Silver called into the hospital to apologise and promised the tickets would be sent. Never been back since, even though we won the year after.

    Your All Time Non Liverpool XI

    Dino Zoff Javier Zanetti Franco Baresi Franz Beckenbauer Paulo Maldini Johann Cruyff Zinedine Zidane Alfredo di Stefano Diego Maradona Edson Arantes do Nascimento Eusebio da Silva Ferreira 4-2-4 Can’t believe there’s no room for Gerd Muller, Garrincha, Ronaldo, Ferenc Puskas or Marco van Basten, and that’s just the strikers. Old enough to have seen them all, even di Stefano in the 1960 European Cup Final when I was a kid (not in Glasgow, on the tele!) No defensive midfielders as such, you wouldn’t need them with that defence, and in the unlikely event of you scoring 3, they’d score 6.
