    Opposition View -Crystal Palace

    Its all down to this... https://www.theguardian.com/football/football-league-blog/2011/sep/27/brighton-crystal-palace-rivalry
  2. Klopp says Fabinho has a 'proper knock' Looking like we may be really struggling for a midfield for this... Hendo, Jones, Milner about all we have? Its been relentless in midfield all season the injuries....as soon as get 1 back seems 2 go down....a revolving door week in week out.
  3. Fact he lasted to Jan and played about 20 games is a borderline miracle - and more than probably all of us expected.

    Diogo Jota

    Not slaughtered as ours will no doubt be by people singing the wrong words and at 200 mph....
  5. Taken off 'as a precaution'....whats the betting he is out for a month or more? https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/lfc-fitness-update-matip-oxlade-chamberlain-elliott-and-more

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Be a real highlight of their season cheering on chelsea against us in the final of a trophy they have never won.
  7. Great win - a cup final day out at Wembley for the match going fans. That's what being a footy fan is all about. Any of the 'fuck the cups' mob who qualify for a final ticket should give it up to someone who does care.
  8. Arsenal "could not field a side" in the postponed north London derby 4 days ago but are at full strength tonight.... Nobody saw that coming did they?

    RIP Peter Robinson

    Mancs were opening their 'megastore' whilst we had a fucking portacabin with about half a dozen things in it in the main stand car park. Laughable

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    After their statement about Rafa going which contained no thanks or best wishes for future, the classless twats have done same with the backroom staff.... https://www.evertonfc.com/news/2452005/club-statement

    Other Football 2021/22

    For me thw dropped pts at chelsea and tottenham were in a large part down to being weakened....Leicester was simply an abject display - they happen of course even to best sides, but sadly now with the bar at the level the cheats have moved it to they are more or less not 'allowed' now.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    He just plays up to all their small time bitterness perfectly. He was a shite footballer, a horrible prick who at a proper big club wouldn't have got anywhere let alone be idolised. The absolute epitome of mediocrity, but he has an EFC tattoo and gobs off about us so he is a 'legend' and a hero. Says it all about Everton that fact.
  16. It sunmed him up when he got injured sunday....had just scored about 2 mins before then injured himself under no challenge - literally just fell over. His career in a nutshell.
  17. No Jones or Oxlade in training which likely means Milner starting again...I love Milner but he simply shouldn't be starting games for us anymore, especially with Henderson and Fabinho.
  18. It's a farce...whole season is being reduced to a farce because the powers that be have failed spectacularly to put in place and administer fair and proper rules.

    So Close No Matter How Far - by John Brennan

    Its such a shame it won't have the rewards it deserves because of those cheating bastards.

    So Close No Matter How Far - by John Brennan

    Problem I have with our pursuit of the cheating bastards is this: They are squeezing the life out of the game - literally suffocating it to death. I can handle us not winning league and chasing a better team, but there has to be a glimmer of hope you can actually catch them, that other teams might beat them, that winning is hard for them too.....some sort of jeopardy. There is literally none with them and it is soul destroying....even the mancs under demento would often lose 6 or 7 games a season and win titles with 'normal' pts totals in the low to mid 80's, even the odd one or two in the 70's. We knew it was pretty much fucked when 97 pts was not enough to beat them - ok we went again and won it the next year with an even higher total - but it was always going to be extremely difficult/nigh on impossible to maintain that level season after season. As the OP says "So we have literally gone toe-to-toe with this multi-billion petrodollar outfit who have cheated to get where they are (this isn’t an allegation, it’s been proven to be so in the courts)" and arguably our best ever team or certainly one of them (and we have had some great teams) and its not enough.....They can spend 100m on a player like Grealish, he be dead average and its no bother.... Rest of league so often just curls up in a ball against them and begs not to be hit too hard - teams often fail to register a shot on target v them (even a side as good as chelsea) or win a corner. They are strangling the life out of the game....pretty much no competition. The feeling that pretty much every droppes point is likely to kill you just becomes so draining - recent draws away at Chelsea and Tottenham (whilst being weakened by covid) are not bad results at all 'normally' but frankly they have pretty much ended our hopes (along with the leicester shit show, but that is it isn't - can't really afford any bad days up against these now) They'll probably win next 5 leagues at a canter and every time a challenger comes along ala us from about 2018-2020, they just swat them away with their chequebook...

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Best part of above ruck is both spelling feign incorrectly.
