  1. Craig Johnston. Was he ever any good? Really?

    Our Support is Fucking Shit

    I am for my sins at stamford bridge today. Look no further for the absolute worst fans. Anywhere. Dreadful dreadful people.
  3. Coutinho Allen Sterling Everything good we did seemed to go through PC. JA and RS for their attitude given recent set-backs - and RS for not folding after getting an absolute earful from SG in the first half. Five mins later was tracking back by the corner flag.

    Safe Standing.

    I think this sums up Government policy on this issue. They would have to examine the concept of 'safe standing' first and it isn't really on their sport policy agenda at the moment.

    Safe Standing.

    Any change is unlikely. Football grounds which host top-flight matches in the UK must comply with regulations managed by the Football Licencing Authority, which include a requirement that all stadia are seated and seats individually ticketed. Those regulations were implemented in response to the Taylor Report. The Government would need to amend those regulations and would (most likely) only do so in response to a wide-ranging consultation. There is no appetite for such a consultation this side of the General Election in 2015, and given that this is not a party political issue, would not be a priority issue post the Election.

    Did Dalglish fuck Torres off?

    It's not how I'd describe him. But for Torres that's what he was, someone who had not managed professionally in a long time.

    Did Dalglish fuck Torres off?

    If I had been Torres and my employer club had (a) sacked the manager who bought me in after his first bad season (b) replaced him with someone who had never won anything © sacked him after 6 months and (d) brought in a pundit ex-player as a caretaker manager I might have wondered what was going on. As far as his attitude is concerned he scored in a defeat at Blackpool then scored twice away at Wolves in what was - hideously - a must-win game. Did what he was paid to do.

    Featured: Bunch of 5s - 'Worst haircuts'

    Paul Walsh overlooked? A metaphor for his LFC career. I seem to remember that Kevin McDonald looked like something out of Operation Yewtree.

    I liked jockey's in the LC Final replay vs West Ham. Belter.

    I don't know, but logically it makes some sense in that the team receiving the loanees is the same throughout the season - although in that vein you should be able to recall in the transfer window?

    Andy Carroll, what does he do?

    Those players got us the lowest points score in our PL history. Keeping them would have resulted in 20 more points? Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein

    Liverpool council buy Everton training ground

    An apt illustration of the absurdity that is player salaries. Clubs are now like those small birds that end up with giant cuckoos (what happened to them by the way - anyone hear one this year??) in their nests.

    Europa League Winners Get Champions League Spot

    Spot on. The "Arsenal model" is corroding the League and lowering the overall standard. It is perverse that you can finish 16 points off top but still essentially get the same rewards. Agree also that CL drop-outs shouldn't get anywhere near the EL. That more than anything devalues it. It's the Plate for the CL also-rans who can be arsed with a sprinkling of FC Whothefuck's. No wonder noone wants to pay to watch it.

    It looks like there is a re-run of the match on LFC TV this evening, although I am not sure how you get that if you haven't got it (as it were). It was a great piece of work, made Granero (?) look like he was treading water. Who was playing right side for QPR in the second half? The lad who threw a paddy and got booked when he didn't get a free-kick. He looked very, very, very quick indeed.

    david fucking beckham

    He retired when he went to play in the US.

    Yes I agree. A season-season business plan is very expensive. They have had quite a bad blip this year though - even if they win their two remaining games, they'll have 8 points less than last season, but still 10 more than 2 seasons ago. The point made above about the quality of their CL Group, which for a team that had won its League was ridiculously hard, is fair - although not winning a single game was pretty poor by any standards. Overall someone has to decide whether it is a blip or a trend, then act. With the upheaval at their main rivals though, to take away that advantage by removing their own manager is a risky and maybe unnecessary decision to take.

    There isn't too much a manager can do when the whistle blows - it's fatuous to say that the loss to Wigan was Mancini's fault for example. A manager's job is to get the best out of his players, develop young talent and transplant in mature talent as and when needed. That's how and where you get judged. That appears to be where he's fallen short of requirements. Unless he can show that he can reverse that, then there is only one course open to the people running a club.

    The New Everton Manager

    Their fans lost their capacity to surprise with their ignorance years ago. Chelsea started the season like a train, then the wheels came off as league form evaporated and they went out of the CL. Abramovich got rid of RDM and brought in someone who knew what he was doing with a fixed brief, which he fulfilled with a game to spare and has a very winnable European final ahead of him. What is amusing is that Abramovich was criticised (not by Chelsea's craven supporters mind) for ignoring fan opinion over RDM but is now bending to it by not keeping Benitez on. Putting him in charge next season given the turmoil at United and City, the continuing weakness at Arsenal and the flimsiness of Spurs should be a none-decision. Ultimately who cares, but it would be a bad day if Benitez did get the job, as Chelsea would clean up. If that show-pony with his pre-menstrual hissy fits shows up instead that's no bad thing.

    The New Everton Manager

    If Everton beat Chelsea they'll have 66 points. That's a big ask for anyone to better next season and Moyes has left a poison chalice there. And a whiff of failure too as the Blueshite will never have a better chance of finishing 4th than they did this year. On a different tack, is there any more obvious an appointment than Benitez at Chelsea? Comfortably filled the brief to qualify for CL, in a European final and made the semis of the other two competitions. With him in charge they'd walk the PL next year.

    That's a relief. Who is? Benfica look like they will be in the CL next year? Interesting in a not-really-interesting sort of way...

    Mackay is 3/1 on Paddy Power. Liverpool is much closer to Scotland than Wales too. Are Everton in the EL if Chelsea win it this week?
