    Liverpool 5 Everton 2 (Dec 4 2019)

    Watching the Arse v B&HA tonight - Shearer is commentating - perhaps I was harsh on McMoist.

    Liverpool 5 Everton 2 (Dec 4 2019)

    Watched the game via the new network provider in the presence of Ali McMoist (who was v poor btw). I thought that we looked great going forward but didn't close down/get to the ball enough when we were defending - very passive at times. TAA was especially poor after he got (rightly) booked. Both goals originated down his side even though Richarlison was never touched for the free kick he "earned" that led to the corner that led to the first goal. Not having someone (Fab or Hendo) snapping in to the tackle in front of the back four leaves them exposed at times. A better side would have caused more problems (and Everton caused too many in reality). Having said all that, if LFC has scored 7 it would not have been flattering. Shaq was especially sharp for someone who hadn't played for a while and Divock was a willing runner all night and Sadio was just magnificent. PS The referee expert on Prime (Dermot G) reckoned that VVD's challenge was not a penalty.

    Premier League Round Up (Nov 23-25 2019)

    "He started with a win, but they were only playing West Ham and everyone is beating them at the moment so it doesn’t really mean much. They looked quite good for 80 minutes though." The way the Press went on you'd have thought it was the second coming. It was a win for Spurs against a underachieving West Ham side with Tuddy Cicero in goal. Even then Spurs almost "did a Spurs" and let them back in - but by then the press had all written their reports and closed up their laptops.
  4. Worked out fine last night - Salah didn't even get off the bench. He'll probably have a great game at Bournemouth.
  5. You only have to (re)watch the Agent Provocateur advert to know that!!

    Just watched MOTD again and the commentator did say since mid-September

    It's bound to exist somewhere - there are just too many Manc parallel universes for it not to.
  8. Had to happen sooner or later
  9. You have to bear in mind that Sterling is the Football Writers Player of the Year - and so the media are always going to spin it in such a way that doesn't put their judgement in a bad light.

    Premier League Round Up (Nov 8-10 2019)

    After a re-read I agree with most of this. The first line was such a killer - just like a Bobby flick on the edge of the box - so good you have to look at it again & again to realise the brilliance. No one else seems to have noticed "tarantula orgy" - come on - Dave even posted a picture!! And as for the West Ham keeper being in the Witness Protection Program - it's so surreal it could actually be true (hidden in plain sight) But the best line of the week still belongs to Dave's Mum! Such imagery!!

    Totally agree - I'm going to have to re-read the whole round-up to see which bits were funniest! Dave's Mum is currently favourite.

    Sterling had looked lively all day but he hadn’t been able to have much of an influence until Hendo went off. After that he was running wild. Part of that if because as a team we became tired and City were allowed to get on top of us, but the absence of Henderson was huge because all of a sudden Sterling was picking the ball up and he was isolated one v one with Trent. That did not happen when Henderson was on the field. Klopp alluded to it afterwards without directly mentioning his skipper. He said something along the lines of what a great player Sterling is and how much trouble he gave us in the final 20 minutes, but he also said it shows just what a great job we’d done to keep him quiet until then. You don’t need to make tackles or interceptions to be effective defensively. You can be influential in all sorts of ways that there are no stats for. Shutting down space, closing off angles, doubling up to help the full back and forcing the winger to go backwards. That’s what Hendo did. It was difficult to work out who was responsible for the right hand side once Hendo went off - BGJ went immediately to the left and Gini & Fab just seemed to stay central - so TTA had more to do on the right in defence than he had to do all game - Sadio seemed to be the only one helping out. This also led to City's left back, Angelino, actually getting over half way with the ball at his feet and so TTA was left with 2 v 1 at times.

    At the moment I find it difficult to put them ahead this team: https://www.lfchistory.net/SeasonArchive/Game/1046 But even this team lost in the 1st Round of the European Cup (to eventual winners Notts Forest). So let's see................. But it is fun to watch!
