  1. Guess we need to hurry up and wrap up the title before the season is declared void! https://metro.co.uk/2020/02/28/liverpool-premier-league-title-coronavirus-jurgen-klopp-12320842/

    Don't know much about her singing or presenting skills but she has got a cracking pair on her.

    Looks like New Zealand is going back to normal, lucky bastards. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-52658550 I guess they won't be having any international visitors for a while though. Does anyone know if the virus could simply reappear in NZ even though they have eradicated transmission? A bit like the flu, could it crop up again even if nobody is contagious and they don't allow anyone in from abroad?
  4. The player concerns are legitimate, but the fact it's mainly players from the teams at the bottom speaking up does make it appear they have an agenda and just want to use the virus as an excuse to escape relegation. If all other clubs are happy to go along with the restart then why do the relegation-threatened teams have a problem? Hmm, I wonder.... The virus isn't going away anytime soon, certainly not in the UK where it'll be rampant for a long time yet thanks to the ineptitude of the government so footballers living here will have to decide whether they want to stall their careers for months on end, or do they get out there and get on with playing football.
  5. Personally do not give a shit about an asterisk, I only care about the 19th title and that's it. Not our fucking fault a virus has ended a season that we have utterly dominated, and I'll take a title with an asterisk than no title at all. And I can't imagine for an instant that if we can't resume, that the league will deny us the title. The league can do the sporting, sensible and fair thing and get no bother, or they can be cunts and cheat us out of the title that is by rights ours, and face the mother of all uproars. I think they'll go for the sensible option. As for sorting out the rest of issues about relegation, promotion etc. Don't really care what they do but my personal preference is to relegate the bottom 3 and promote the top 3 from the Championship. Let's be honest, those 3 at the bottom were going down anyway.
  6. Personally I don't care too much if the season is completed, as long as we are awarded the title. It's a shit situation, not much anyone can do about it but if the season can't be safely resumed then just end it, with us being champions. I'm fine with that, don't care about the rest. If it gets voided however, there will be hell to pay as far as I'm concerned.
  7. The relegation candidates that don't want to resume the season, will they prefer the season end on current standings like they've done in France? Well I guess the teams currently in the bottom 3 won't be but that should be all the more incentive for them to get out there and play when the time comes instead of hoping the season is voided.
  8. Personally I think that's fair given the circumstances but obviously there'll be uproar from clubs that still had a realistic chance of staying up.
  9. I'm pretty sure the government will intervene and declare no more football until fuck knows when. The season will be finished without playing another game. The only question is whether they void it, or end with decisions made on champions, Cl qualification, relegation, promotion etc.
  10. I've been fairly relaxed about this whole thing but have to admit, if PSG aren't awarded the title I'm going to start panicking a little.
  11. It's been cancelled. No decision yet on title winners, relegation, etc. That'll be decided next month.

    Michael Robinson

    Sad news. RIP Michael.
  13. Surely the season will resume soon? Clubs can't be happy to pay their players all this money for doing nothing, not while the clubs themselves make no money. It's going to be behind closed doors which will be shit but better than nothing. Hopefully there'll be no resistance from players. Tell 'em to play or they don't get paid.
  14. The Premiership is a separate entity, it can decide to award the title to Liverpool, let the lower leagues work out what they want to do.
  15. The Dutch league is worth pennies mate. The premiership has billions riding on it. No comparison. This season will be finished one way or the other. Failing that, I cannot imagine the league would deny us the title should the season be ended prematurely. There would be no credibility left in the game if that were to happen.
  16. Who gives a shit about what's going on in Holland. They want to cancel and void that's their stupidity. That can't and won't happen here.

    Patrik Berger vs Oyvind Leonhardsen

    Berger, by a mile. Not even a comparison for me.

    Collymore, Baros or Cisse

    Collymore, easily. Massively talented. The season before he joined us he was unbelievable at Forest. There haven't been many signings that excited me more than Collymore, I really thought we would easily win the title with him and Fowler up front. Pity his head wasn't screwed on properly, his potential was huge.

    Great news, very relieved to hear he's back home.

    Dead at 53. 2016 is seriously taking the piss now.

    Sir Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish

    At least he's not showing any symptoms, hopefully he'll ride this out without too much bother. Curse this fucking virus, what a nightmare everything is becoming. Really sick of this now, the only positive for me is that I'm finally getting back to normal after 3 weeks in bed and isolation due to this fucking thing. Best of luck to Kenny.

    As someone who is also struggling with this bastard I wish him well. It's fucking horrible and the feeling of dread this disease causes just worsens things.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    The club need to backtrack asap. This has been an appalling move by the club and I can't believe Jurgen without be agreeing to this. Haven't felt this low about the conduct of our club for many years.
  24. Not just disappointed but personally feel gutted by the clubs decision here. An absolutely appalling move.
  25. James McClean refuses to wear a poppy | Mail Online I'm not sure about this recent fad of imprinting poppies on football shirts. While I applaud the sentiment behind the use of poppies in general, does it really belong in sport? I thought FIFA took a dim view of the politicising of football? Don't think we've heard the end of this, McClean is going to get a bit of flak for this.
