    Happy Birthday Stevie G

    40 today the boy. Could probably still do a job in some teams in the Prem with a bit of fitness training. Happy Birthday Steven. Legend.

    While the blame lies with us for much of the violence that led to the deaths, I think there was never enough done to highlight how much LFC and Merseyside Police had warned, and been ignored by, UEFA about playing a game of that magnitude in a stadium that, I think am right in saying, didn’t have a safety certificate. Wasn’t investigated properly then, and won’t ever be now. RIP the 39
  4. With the huge number of fans we have, there’ll be more than a few I suspect Scott. Knobheads will always let you down and we have our fair share, also, television could take a group of a hundred and make it look like thousands, they do it all the time with political rallies, so wherever it happens, and it will, you can expect S*y news to be all over it. Sadly. Also, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a few non- LFC bodies turned up too.

    I just wonder what would have happened if one supporter from either side would have died when they had that ruck with Millwall recently?
  6. Ah! Taksim Square...::.
  7. Aguero has no shout about it affecting his family really, don’t they spend most of their time in Argentina anyway? Only come over every 4 weeks or so?
  8. And this weeks new saying is ...., “Integrity”. Forget “Different Class” or “Triffic”.

    We all know that when the Champions League games are played at Anfield, they aren’t LFC’s games, they are UEFA’s. That’s why several thousand of us get moved to other parts of the ground, to accommodate the UEFA sponsors and “family”, and why our advertising gets covered up. UEFA and the government decided it was ok to allow the game, (and other sporting fixtures, such as Cheltenham), to continue not LFC. I would expect DaveK to know about the governments stance and influence on allowing the game to go ahead, however, even he can be forgiven for not knowing about UEFA’s influence, as he plainly has never had any dealings with UEFA. Ignorance is bliss it seems.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Other way round surely!
  12. To be fair, Cantona is a great shout, although he wasn’t acting cool at that Palace game!!
  13. Bergkamp. Cannavaro Buffon

    Didn’t realise that was the case! Sort of makes more sense of a few things that happened over the years now.

    Yes, but nobody died you see, so that makes it different. Always has. Of course it is different, ultimately throughout all the violence at football games (in the 70’s and 80’s particularly), nobody died as a result of hooliganism until Heysel (that is unless you count the Sunderland couple who died from a gate support collapsing and a Palace fan who died under a bus after being chased, both incidents when playing Man United) and because it was us who were involved then we will forever have to accept that and quite rightly so, because there’s no arguing that we caused those 39 deaths on that night even if it was indirectly, hence the Manslaughter verdicts against 26 who were there. I suspect that whatever ills become our blue brethren from then and into the future, they will hold us to blame for those too, as it is much easier for them to argue about something intangible (they might have gone on to dominate Europe instead of being banned) than something that is tangible (they should’ve done much more than they have done since 1985).
  16. The closer we get to a restart (however that might play out) the more desperate some are getting to get a restart prevented. Its become obvious there are many agenda driven reasons for that, and ultimately, I hope those who are being selfish will be brought to book. Troy Deeney is quite right to bring up his child’s illness as a reason to not play until there’s a guarantee it is safe to do so, but he might have to wait a long time to kick a ball if that’s the case. The fact he’s only mentioned his kid now could be because he wanted it keeping private and maybe he’s decided there was no option left for him now and that’s why he has. We probably won’t ever find out if that’s why. If all the others who have been as vocal have similarly valid reasons then perhaps they should let those be known as well. Until that happens the Premier League should make clubs aware that there will, currently, be a restart similar to the German League and the clubs will be expected to adhere to the conditions agreed and, basically, get the fuck on with it. Of course it might be things could still go wrong, but when there are literally thousands who have had to get on with life as best as they can without PPE, testing or the privilege that most footballers have, I think we should at the very least expect them to have a shot at it. I have to say that it’s been so good that our club and players have said nothing and got on with helping others. As a our former Chairman said in the quote at the bottom of my posts.
  17. Hear that bubbling sound? Thats the sound of piss boiling all around the country that is.
  18. If this season is ended on PPG and we are declared Champions, and if next season doesn’t get going at all, can we claim No20 for next season seeing as how the table will remain the same?
  19. You are right Barry, but ultimately all are governed by the rules of the FA aren’t they?
  20. The FA/ PL should grow a pair and tell all these cryarses that these are extraordinary circumstances and extraordinary measures will need to be taken to ensure football survives in this country at the top level. The measures will be for the greater good of all with no favouritism applied and all clubs will comply. Failure to do so will be taken as bringing the game into disrepute and extraordinary punishment will be applied to those who do so. Sounds simplistic I know, but sometimes that’s all it takes. Won’t happen though.

    Moment of the season 19/20

    Away to Villa. Battered them for 80 odd minutes with no luck or reward and had a VAR go against us. Then Robbo pops up for his goal and then Mane heads home from an impossible angle, cue pandemonium in the Red seats. Players faces when the final whistle went, all in front of us, fists clenched. Just knew it was ours after that game.

    Cunt XI

    De Gea (Never acknowledges the Kop) Evra Jones Ramos Marcelo Cahill Fernandinho Busquets Hazard Mertens Ferguson Manager: Colin Wanker There’s dozens though if you think hard enough.
  24. There’s nowhere like football to find self serving, hypocritical and biased view points spouted as being the best for everyone else. It’s been said by some that “ how can you think of playing football while people are in hospital dying of the virus?”, conveniently missing the point that every Saturday (or any day football is being played) there are, sadly, people in hospital dying, and some of a virus. So does that mean we don’t ever play football again? Or is there a death count or cause where it’s ok play football? There’s a lot of money being lost in every area of life because of this virus, but the main problem is that the money is being put first in every area of life and not necessarily the people it is affecting. Self serving hypocrites are those that are being heard loudest. The silence from our club, which has much to lose in many ways, is thankfully deafening.

    While we’re here it gives them something to do. Stops them going outside and doing other stuff, possibly to other people. Care in the Community, that’s what we are. It’s a burden we have to bear for the greater good.
