    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    No need to go to those lengths. Get them short term agricultural working visas for the UK and then tell them to do a runner when they arrive. Easy. Actually thinking about it, there'll be no visa regime on any EU Nationals, so they can just enter as visitors and then...do a runner!

    Where will we finish 2019/20?

    I think there is a serious danger for some of our players to tire some time this season, given the high intensity of our game and the lack of proper off season breaks for them. I trust Klopp to manage this well, but I think it will ultimately affect the number of points we get. Obviously would love us to finally win it, but the cheating Mancs have got too many good players to be adversely affected by injuries. I don't think Sane out is going to affect them all that much. It's a sickener but I think we'll get a points haul which would win the league in many seasons, but wont be anywhere near enough to overcome them. I also think Spurs will be a lot closer and we will be fighting for 2nd with them. I hope I'm very wrong and we win the league by at least 10 points beating the cheats twice and with the season ending with them receiving a three year Champions League ban and a PL investigation!

    No intention of watching any of the cheats games this year and no surprise to read what's happening today. With the immense resources and ridiculous number of very good players at their disposal they will win the league with ease. They have pushed the boundaries of 'fair play' and not been challenged on it. Until the relevant authorities address the issue I can't see it being any other way. Might possibly change when Guardiola leaves, but I don't feel too positive about that either. Fuck em.

    Napoli (Murrayfield - Friendly) 28.7.19

    We're missing our front three, and teams that will play us without them know we offer a lot less without them. Hope they all stay fit for the season and can hit the ground running.

    Wow what a game and pleased this team finally wins it, especially for how they've played for the past 4 years! Really feel for New Zealand though...it's like drawing the Champions League, then drawing in the penalty shoot out only to lose because the other team scored more of their goals from outside the box!

    2019/20 Fixtures

    So when exactly is this famed mid season break for the players? Looks like we'll be getting ready for an important CL fixture that week!
  7. Such an early first goal can be a dangerous thing, how do you play it when you're 1-0 up so early in the most important game of the season!? Sit back/push on/play your normal game? Psychologically it's a great start yet such a tough position to be in! Defensively I thought we were superb, definitely at our best for me, so this narrative about us not being at our best can do one. That was a classic, incredibly effective, and brilliant European Final performance against a potentially dangerous attacking opponent, and I am so proud of that team ansd how they expertly managed that game, and by team I mean the whole group. Collectively they come across as such a fantastic group of individuals, well-grounded, and just a perfect fit for what this beautiful club stands for. If any group of players ever deserved this moment it is this team. The hard work they have put in this season, the connection they have with the fans, the passion and commitment they have demonstrated throughout, to see and feel that joy at the end of the game will stay with me forever. Six times!!!

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    What happens next then? Brexit supporting new PM for the Tories. They will go to the EU attempting to re-negotiate the deal. The EU won't alter their stance significantly. The PM states with no change in their position (the EU) then the UK will have to leave on a 'no deal' basis unless the EU radically changes the terms of the deal. As we near deadline day with lots of argument about leaving on a no deal basis a few Tories break ranks as they can't support the idea of a 'no deal' exit. Vote of no confidence in Parliament which the government loses leading to a General Election and Brexit delayed. Farage and his party stand across the country and a significant number of those who voted leave go on to vote for his party changing the political landscape across the country - but hard to predict how...what happens after that is anyone's guess... There is absolutely nothing undemocratic about having a confirmatory vote with a decision as profound and significant as Brexit is for the future of the country. It is likely Brexit would win again but at least with the knowledge the public NOW HAS with respect to the decision, noone would be able to argue that it was an uninformed choice. A second vote seems to me to be the most democratic solution to our current political impasse. Either way the country is fucked. It is so divided it's going to take a long time for these divisions to heal. I also fear that if we do leave, Scotland will eventually vote to leave the Union.
  9. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the media had been barred from writing about the FFP 'allegations'. There's a lot of stuff that the media can't print for similar reasons. Now that there is a possibility of a charge and ban the papers can report that factually. Like you said, the leaked emails clearly reveal City's mindset when it comes to any off field challenge - we have the cash to make you suffer in court for years and years, basically we can bankrupt you. Do you dare take us on? They're a state funded club and how they have arrived at where they are is totally relevant in the context of football history. Their absolute domination domestically this year (and almost last year) is a direct result of their state funded investment in their players and bringing in the best managers who have access to unlimited resources. There is no question about it. It is right that this is investigated and basically questioned in terms of is this a 'fair' way to bankroll success and do we want this to be a model for the future? Is this going to make football more exciting or is this going to lead to a hollow soulless sport where only a few clubs dominate year on year? Whether the footballing powers that be (and media) have the courage to actually challenge this remains to be seen, but I expect there a number of squeaky bums when those City emails are received at the various HQs. I hope we can challenge them again next season and push on to win it, but it's going to be a gruelling season especially when a number of teams now in the PL accept defeat before the game starts as evidenced when they don't even register corners/shots on target at their home games against them! Regardless, we have been incredible this season, and to a large extent, last season too. The football, the passion, the team have been a revelation and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Klopp brings joy to the sport and has built this team up over a number of seasons, bringing in youth and a fair play philosophy which encourages a special enjoyment in the game and how it is played on the pitch. It's no coincicdence, although perhaps a little ironic given the bigger picture, that we have topped the fair play league for the past three seasons.

    Far too easy for them and even if they were finding it a tad more competitive than expected, look at that bench. With their unlimited resources it's looking bleak for English football competitiveness for the moment. It's going to get boring very quickly unless we can break this monopoly.

    Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 (May 12 2019)

    Damn right, every single word of it. Burn them all!
  12. He's been playing really well the last few games, putting himself about, making passes, making runs, looking like more of an all action midfielder, possibly helped by the fact we have Fabinho playing in that holding role and bossing games. Hendo's form has been reminding me of 2014 when he played well and we last almost won it. Remeber he missed crucial final games and felt at the time we missed his presence.

    Wolves (H) Premier League 12/5/2019

    For what it's worth (not much) I had a similar dream but woke up before the end. City were losing then equalised whilst we were winning fairly comfortaby (2-0 I think). It felt like it was going to happen...then I woke up too... Brighton were decent at home earlier in the season, but really not expecting City to do anything other than win especially given their recent form. Whatever though, we've had a fantastic season and we've pushed them all the way. Hopefully we can put on a performance today and enjoy the game.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Highly unlikely we're going to have another season like this with this number of points with one defeat only, but even if we did, looking like City are looking at around 95-100 points a season until someone gets bored. It's just the way it is and in football you never now, sometimes the unexpected happens. Even so I want to win something again and perhaps we should take at least one of the cups more seriously next season.

    That was VVD taking control and telling Shaq to take the free kick...
