    Premier League Round Up (Aug 10-11 2019)

    Just on your hating of Newcastle and Villa Dave, didn't you also really hate West Ham as well because of the unbearable tory-ness of the 2 owners? And I can't really agree with your point about the handball. Remember the Man Utd/PSG or, to be fair, Champions League final penalties last season? Basically VAR has made any ball to hand scenario a crime nowadays.
  2. Good report Dave. Nice and balanced. I do wish that the fight with you and the guy watching the game took place. That sounds like it would have been a sight to see

    Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 (May 12 2019)

    Good report. Just on the Ben Johnson thing though, wasn't he actually penalized for cheating though and Carl Lewis won the gold medal? I don't think that's a fair analogy really. Also, I think Carl Lewis was actually juiced up nearly as much as Ben so again, so yeah, I don't think that's a comparison we want...
  4. Just reading this now, "How would we cope with 2 of our front 3 out?" Well, I reckon we got our answer on that one...

    Premier League Round Up (May 3-5 2019)

    That Luke Shaw thing is interesting. It's amazing how many United fans slated him last week, and then he was given player of the year! It's incredible how bad they've been. Before they could at least have given De Gea the award, but he's been so bad now they can't even do that. By the way I know a way Chelsea can overcome the transfer ban and sign about 40 players, recall all the guys out on loan. And no, 40 is not an exaggeration, it's actually 43. I've counted it on Wikipedia (Yes, I know, my life is sad etc)

    Barcelona 3 Liverpool 0 (May 1 2019)

    My one takeaway from all of this is the obsession of Dave with the size of Maradona and Messi's penises. They're Argentinian Dave, not Japanese, I'm sure their penises are perfectly normal sized! ***I would like to add the above was merely a joke and does not reflect my true feelings towards the Argentinians, the Japanese, or the size of their penises...

    Premier League Round Up (Apr 20-24 2019)

    Just on the "Players who have completely fallen off a cliff" theme:Torres post 2010, Joe Cole post 2010, Ronaldinho post 2006, Benteke post 2016, Michael Ricketts... Think the 2014 loss would still be more devastating than this season. Considering it was only 3 games to go and it was Gerrard slipping after giving the "This does not slip now" Hard to get more grimly ironic than that. Also Dave it's Jeff HENDRICK. Jimi Hendrix was a guitarist. I don't know what Hendricks is, maybe a drink or something..

    FC Porto 1 Liverpool 4 (Apr 17 2019)

    I think the karaoke helped us. And was it not Arbeloa that had Messi in his pocket, not Riise? Maybe Arbeloa has moved to Norway now, I don't know...

    Premier League Round Up (Apr 6-8 2019)

    Just on the Roy Hodgson point I thought Joe Cole would be a great signing for us. But I guess he was signed by the wrong manager...

    Liverpool 4 Crystal Palace 3 (Jan 19 2019)

    Every great defence has at least one or two days when things go to pot. Remember Houllier's team? Had a 5-4 Uefa cup final against Alaves. Benitez: 2 3-3 finals against Milan and, somewhat less forgivably, West Ham. So you can forgive an odd off day once it's the exception. It was a close game, and I remember a lot of close ones in the 2014 run as well. We only beat West Ham, Norwich and City by inches that year in the run in. So all this "Oh this is a sign it's their year", Danny Murphy saying we'll win it, is all bullshit. It's only your year when the season's over and your kissing the trophy.

    So you didn't remember Cathcart, or Wes Hoolahan or even Darron Gibson back in the day. Something about us Irish you don't like Dave?? You're like Boris Johnson...

    Premier League Round Up (Dec 29 - Jan 2 2018)

    Excellent report Dave. Just a couple of things. For me, Fraser looks like a long lost cousin of Shaqiri. Is that a further reason why he qualifies for "My Boy" status? Seeing as you "Love Shaq" and all... Also, you're saying Kane is unworthy of being in the honours list because other people are more noble than him. Eh, did you see the people who get honoured in these things? Jimmy Saville, Phillip Green, people who were involved in the Hillsborough cover up...Kane is probably one of the least worst people on it!

    Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1 (Sep 29 2018)

    Just a thought, but how much can the form of the front three be related to them having a long summer at the World Cup, whereas Sturridge is fresh from having his best (or only) pre-season in years? I know the form of Hazard would kind of contradict that finding but he may be the only top player who is like that this season. I also think Salah is still feeling the strain from his run ins with the Egyptian FA. That sounds like a massive headache for him. The fact that he came back soon from that shoulder injury probably didn't help him either.

    Liverpool 1 Chelsea 2 (Sep 26 2018)

    In fairness to Hazard that was a hell of a goal he scored. Sure he only had to beat Moreno and a few others, but Maradona only went past Terry Fenwick!

    World Cup 2018 Round Up (Semifinals)

    Also Dave, disagree with the "anything can happen with penalties" line about England. If that's the case, how come Germany always win them, while other teams don't? I would give Southgate credit as to how the team did with set pieces and penalties. But I agree they are a very average side.

    World Cup 2018 Round Up (Final)

    Good report Dave, there is a lot I agreed with. In particular the Trippier thing. If you're fit enough to play in a glorified friendly on a Saturday, you're fit enough to play the last 10 minutes of the biggest game of your life on a Wednesday. That he didn't do that was a dereliction of duty. Crazy stuff. On the penalty decision Dave, think it was a 50/50. The thing is, everybody is saying it wasn't a penalty because, if they're honest, they wanted Croatia to win. If it was the Champions League final and Sergio Ramos did it, everybody would say it should be a penalty. I think the ref thought he would have got more flack if he hadn't given it and Croatia lost. A tough call, but in a way, I can fully understand why he gave it. To be honest I really liked the tournament. I was disappointed how it ended (nobody wanted to France to win, except the French obviously) but I hate the flack International football gets. "It's not as good as club football" Yeah, I get that. You know why? Because the players have less time together and they don't have billions of pounds (Real, City, PSG) to throw around at their team. At least with international football you get to see new different sides and the possibility (although it didn't actually come to pass) of an underdog winning. I'd take that over Real winning the Champions League every year and Bayern winning the Bundesliga by 30 points any day.

    World Cup 2018 Round Up (Semifinals)

    Good round up Dave. I wanted England to win but I can see the counter argument of why you might not. And yes the Henderson thing really pissed me off "Oh, look how shit this guy is". Well, pretty much EVERYBODY looks shit against Luka Modric. And you ignore the fact that he was after playing 28 England games in a row that they hadn't lost. Or that he played in a team that were in the Champions League final this year and reached England's first semi-final in 28 years. And finally, if you think Henderson's performance was bad, I can't wait to see the "highlight" reel of Eric Dire's tournament

    World Cup 2018 Round Up (Days 15-18)

    Was going to make the exact same point about Danny Murphy and Otamendi At one point Otamendi inexplicably booted the ball out of play. Murphy was like "He was unlucky there..." WTF??? His agent wouldn't defend him that much

    I too have a certain fondness for Cantona now. I mean, what about this for a quote "My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan"

    Do you think Wenger leaving is actually the worst thing that could happen to Arsenal Fan TV? Who the hell is going to watch if they're not losing their shit at someone? I guess they could always direct their anger at Kroenke. Maybe that might be next year's storyline.

    Can't agree with you on Pep Dave. Remember this? That was after City had beaten Burnley last season. I think he's a bit of an arse most of the time

    Manchester United 2 Liverpool 1 (Mar 10 2018)

    Excellent report Dave. Just a couple of things 1) I can't agree this is our best side in 25 years. We're worse defensively than the one in 2009 and worse in an attacking way than the one in 2014 2) I think the best, and perhaps, only way to beat Mourinho is by playing Mourinho football against them. That's what Rafa did in two champions league finals and he won twice. Don't attack, just play long balls up and rely on flick ons and corner kicks. Hell Rafa can still beat Mourinho even though he's managing a side that are basically championship level! The problem with Klopp, like Rodgers, is that he's a bit too much of an idealist. He not only wants to win, he has to win HIS way. I'm not saying he's not an excellent manager, or he's not better than Rodgers or Benitez, but the only way to beat that cunt is be an even bigger cunt than him and grind it out. Hell, even when Guardiola has beaten him it's been goals from corners and long balls.

    Premier League Round Up (Feb 10-12 2018)

    I have to say I love Conte too. His celebration against Spain in Euro 2016 is one of my all time favourite football memories. And I'm with you on Vardy too. He's probably one of England's best players, but he won't get a sniff of a game come the World Cup because Kane will play non stop. And Jonjo Shelvey would be one of England's best players if he ever got his head right. Maybe it's only playing against United that really lights the fire in him. If only Ferguson was still managing there so he could tell him to fuck off again. Those were the days...
