    Which player will you be saddest to see leave?

    Aye, when Klopp goes I’ll want to go in a darkened room and listen to Joe Bonamassa for a day or two.

    Question Time

    If most of them found Johnson screwing their missus, they’d probably ask him if he wanted an extra blanket to keep warm.

    Question Time

    I have a couple of mates, retired but had their own businesses, both Reds and the sort of lads you can enjoy a bit of banter with. Normally. I won’t discuss politics with them because you can’t. They flat out believe Johnson is the single best thing since Churchill because he’s led the country out of Europe, got rid of ne’er do wells at a stroke and has led us to victory over Covid. These are seemingly level headed fellas who have done well for themselves, but they are shit scared of what happened in the 70’s with union power and believed more of the same would come from Corbyn and now the strikes are spooking them. When one of them kicked off about benefit cheats taking money from the exchequer, I countered with the fact he preferred dealing in cash to avoid paying taxes and that this was the same thing as it prevented money going into the exchequer and he walked out of the pub we were in at the time. That’s why I don’t talk politics as its pretty much useless. Its indoctrination via the Daily Xenophobe and media and its getting tougher for the Labour party and Socialists to get unbiased treatment, and the public lap it up.

    Question Time

    Bruce cut across Mick Lynch twice in the first few minutes of the show, I pretty much switched off after that as I knew the harpie in the green dress would be allowed to run her mouth off at will, and Lynch would be stopped in his tracks (no pun intended) whenever he was trying to get his point across. Some of the audience were the usual, carefully inserted blue activists who were allowed to put their hackneyed, 1970’s/80’s, Saatchi & saatchi, drivel over about Labour and the unions etc. etc., pretty much without sanction from Bruce and it made me wonder, just how much the BBC fears the future under the threat from the Tories and how much they’ll try to keep the corporation running at the expense of being neutral.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    They can look the Premier League squarely in the eyes and say they’ll have a revenue increase of 10.5% in the coming season.

    Fuck UEFA And Fuck The French Lying Cunts

    Not that this is the right way to think about it I know, but if we were to take UEFA to task and win an apology over the final debacle, it would only be one battle won. Those cunts would make sure LFC get shafted at every turn in the future, they are corrupt and wouldn’t give two fucks. The Inter Milan game in 1965 would appear balanced and fair by comparison. The demands for reparation have to come from somewhere other than a single Club.

    Takumi Minamino

    This is the most likely scenario I think. We had a go at everything last season but even though we had a decent season regarding lack of injuries, we were obviously running on fumes at the end. I accept the World Cup will allow some to have a mid-season “rest” and 5 subs will help, but there will be more focus on the Big 2 given the concentration of games at times and I expect we’ll play the domestic cups as we have done previously, using the squad players and giving younger players game time. It could still mean we might go far in them, especially the League cup (given it’s about four games to get to the final) but we need to get off to a flier in the League and maintain that pressure, as we’ve seen.

    Mohamed Salah

    I Like Redmond, often wondered whether he’d have been improved in a better team with better coaching, similarly Ward-Prowse. Ultimately though, we haven’t made any noises towards either of them and so the talent team mustn’t see enough to think they’d do us. As for Mo, I’ve said elsewhere that unless he has a blinding season, above any reproach, the media and others will slaughter him, it could end acrimoniously which, given all he’s achieved would be a sad conclusion to his time with us. He could always sign a new contract mind.

    Sadio Mane

    Being reported we’re agreed on near £42.5m with Bayern. Not sure how it’s split with cash and incentives.

    Player Welfare / Burnout

    Surely if players don’t want to be picked for their national teams then they don’t have to be? I have to say I don’t feel too enamoured by our players turning out for their national teams, but they obviously want to be there, for whatever reason, or they wouldn’t bother. Right?

    Player Welfare / Burnout

    There is too much football and the match going fans and players are the last to be considered when it comes to scheduling, but we’ve known this for years. Think back to 1989 and the ridiculous number of league games we were made to play in such a short time to complete that season following Hillsborough. I think it’s true that this is only an issue today because Hungary had a result last night that made the Blazers sit up at FA HQ, there is/was no consideration for us or City on the final run in and it was definitely a factor in our second half performance against Madrid in the final. I’d even go as far as to say Ancellotti deliberately played us the way he did, fully expecting us to lose sharpness as the game went on. It will continue until someone makes a stand, be it a club or clubs or the players themselves through the PFA.

    Other Football 2021/22

    Hungary, 4 shots, 3 goals. 75% conversion rate. Wish we had that, the league, Champions League , and both domestic cups would be won at a canter every season. PS Make that 5 shots, 4 goals, 80% conversion rate. Add the World Cup to those trophies.

    Officials as incompetent as England. Hungary can’t believe their luck, the cheating diving cunts. The beauty of it is there’s not a Liverpool player in sight, so the knuckle draggers will have to start blaming someone else.

    Other Football 2021/22

    Journeymen Hungary team keeping the Superstars of the English game at arms length, and quite comfortably too. T’was the same with the u/21’s against Slovenia last night. Both opposition teams just seem to want it more. Too much football for our boys?

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Suarez, when he played football in a red shirt, was a fabulous player. He had pretty much every skill the modern day footballer can possess, good and bad, all used to further his and Liverpool’s aims. Out of a red shirt he becomes an unsavoury character who can play football a bit. Such is the life of a footballer, and the views of many fans towards them.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    There’s a fella at Man City called Sterling who wants away I believe, he gets to the byline quite a lot…………

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Suppose, hypothetically of course, if any of their players, (no names no pack drill) who have left get done for being (ahem) child botherers (for instance), then, technically, they won’t be Everton players when they’re banged up? Thus maintaining their high and mighty status.

    I fully expect the FA and Premier League to say they won’t comment until the result of the “independent” inquiry from UEFA is known.

    The players have every day to practise shooting as well as all the finer tactical points. If you’re a professional footballer, you should be able to at least make the keeper work when presented with a chance as reasonable as that Keita had the other night. Any professional footballer should. They are paid mega bucks to be footballers, shooting should be a basic skill they get right most, if not every, time, it’s like saying an electrician might not connect a switch up right every time.
