    Euro 2020(21)

    If the knuckledraggers are hoping England get to the final, likely against this Italian team, they could be in for a very nasty time.

    When we score against City.

    The Swiss have some really thick cunts playing for them, all named Widdmer.

    Euro 2020(21)

    That sending off was tough but correct. Poorly timed, over the ball, and onto the shin/ankle. Seems to me that there’s a challenge like that in almost every game, where the tackler is a fraction late and lands their foot onto the opponents foot or ankle. Almost like it’s meant to look accidental but is still guaranteed to cause pain. Happens too often to be coincidental. Thing is, every ref interprets it differently and while consistency has been good so far this tournament, with even VAR almost acceptable, this ref has done something nobody else has so far.

    Biting each other like that, the fannies, you don’t get that shit going on in a REAL man’s sport like rugger. Well, maybe the odd ear bitten off here and there.

    Mertens with a stamp on one of the Russians. Horrible twat.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    Can’t blame him for taking one last big pay day, agent driven perhaps, but he’s no different from any other employee who gets the offer of a better wedge and who’s current employer doesn’t want to match it. Hasn’t got anything to prove here given his age and contribution and he might well be missed, although I doubt Klopp and Edwards wouldn’t have a plan in place for his departure to be covered. Cheers Gini, hope you’re shite if our paths ever cross again while you’re still playing.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold

    There’s never a good time to pick up an injury. If it were me, then I’d be ok in the future probably until I got into my later years and then the inherent weakness would probably affect me in some way, such as walking properly. With professional sports players, a weakness is amplified much sooner by either becoming repetitive or causing a drop off in level. Klopp should have been listened to by the other teams, you’ll get Wilder commentating on how he wants England to do well, while at the same time seeing the squad affected by injury withdrawals that are attributable to those players being played excessively in a compacted league program that the likes of him made more difficult because they saw 5 subs as an unfair advantage to the bigger teams.

    Doubt if Trent would be feigning injury, but having played in the England team tonight, I wouldn’t blame him for thinking “fuck this load of shite”!

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

  11. I agree, but the difference between then and now is that then, it appeared he was giving Trent a kick up the arse, which worked, and since then Trent has been really good. But if he were to be left out now, after regaining his form, it might affect him adversely.
  12. Southgate leaving Trent out could backfire on us, if he is really keen to play for England. Might affect his confidence and therefore his play. On a more positive note though, he might double his efforts with a World Cup in the offing, and with a summers rest, that could also help. Southgate is more likely to play him as a wide midfielder I think, he’s the best crosser of a ball England have had since Beckham, and with Sir Harry likely wanting that kind of service, and Trent not averse to having a shot himself, I could see him being used there. By the way, I’m no England fan, we always seem to end up with our players coming back injured whenever they play.
  13. Said in another thread, Chelsea for me (*spit,spit*) as the only reason Guardiola has been brought in and half a billion spunked on City is for their owners to crow at them winning club football’s top prize. Saw some of their supporters being interviewed on tv earlier tonight and they’re going to be really unbearable if they win it, “will confirm us as the most successful English team evoh!” one wag was spouting. Keep their name off big ears for as long as possible please, just to boil their piss.

    Happy Istanbul Day

    Thought then that I’d likely not see that whole occasion bettered, and I still don’t think I have really, we were robbed of a great occasion last season by COVID, and the Spurs final wasn’t all that except for the result. The day travelling, the match, Taksim Square afterwards and the following day coming home via three flights, the third from Frankfurt to Manchester while the team was on the bus tour, on a plane full of Mancs who couldn’t say shit, in my Yellow Goalkeepers shirt ( long story). Top, top time.

    Youth Team/Cup

    Pretty much men against boys. They are very good, comparatively, going forwards and we’ve been hanging on defending against them. We haven’t put them under too much pressure but they look suspect at the back, if we could get one back it might make things interesting. Don’t like the referee much, seems like he’s a real “ homer “.

    Youth Team/Cup

    The Villa players all look head and shoulders bigger than our lads, their arrogance could help us out if we can stop them scoring again. Big ask though. But their keeper and defence do look a bit suspect at times.

    Youth Team/Cup

    Really slow start, sloppy for the first, silly ankle tap for the second that should have been avoidable, bit more settled play since, need to get one back quickly to boost the confidence a bit and put a question in Villa’s minds.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    Gini has been a success for us, he’s obviously been carrying out a job that Klopp wanted him to do and he’s done it well. Some great and not so great performances, Barca’s being the most obviously notable, and I think he’s definitely in the “plus” column overall. No great team is made up of 11 superstars and the grafters are key to success and Gini has given his all almost all of the time. We may well miss his contribution and might only find out how much when he’s gone, but I think he’s left the club in no doubt he was leaving, to his credit, and we should therefore have replacement, hopefully better than him, lined up. Best of luck fella, you’ll always be a hero for being part of the squad that ended the wait, and a. Champions League winner to boot.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Not so Magnifico, eh Carlo? His worst ever finishing league position. Once you have been touched, Born not Manufactured, Chosen etc. etc. etc. (yaaawwwwnnnn).

    Man City - the new bitters?

    WUM of the highest order who needed to listen to the Beatles back catalogue to get his inspiration.

    Other football - 2020/21

    Chelsea are playing as though they’re all on something illegal, I expect something will deflect in off one of them eventually, unless Leicester wake the fuck up. Dean doing his best to wind the entitled fuckers up is a real bonus. I hope it finishes 0-0 and can’t wait to hear from Tuchel afterwards. We could still fuck it up ourselves of course.

    Burnley (A) - Wednesday 19th May, 8:15pm

    That twat Ashley Barnes, hits the floor at every opportunity and is a general pain in the arse. Jay Rodriguez can produce the odd moment of class, and any fucker with the name Cork, well, enough said. That said, we should have more than enough to beat these, but these and West Brom are exactly the type of teams we struggle against. Grocks who will sit back and go for it on the break, or from free kicks, corners etc.. We beat Palace 7-0, they will want to right that particular aberration, but if they attack us, it’ll suit us.
