    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    The atmos and game is like a pre season game in somewhere like the US. There's no hardcore fans to get an atmos going and with nearly a 3 week break since these teams last played competitively, both look very rusty.

    Heysel

    I went to the final in Rome in 84 (got bricked by the Roma fans like everyone else) but didnt go in 85. In those days there wasnt wall to wall tv coverage of the European finals so instead was upstairs listening to the build up on Radio Merseyside. I held my head in my hands as I heard the story unravelling. I couldnt believe such a situation would happen with our fans. I remember coming down and saying to wifey I didnt think the game would go ahead because of the 'riot' and unconfirmed deaths in the stadium. A truely bad day, no excuses. Like the people of Hillsborough, we should never forget the 39 people who died and the families left behind.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Well it took them long enough to play it but, play it they have. According to city's chairman Mubarak has played the race card saying the 'attacks' on city are an ethnic slur. Reported by The Times.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Only dickwads like martin samuel think this dominance by city is 'good' for English football. Their being streets ahead of all teams except us and mega spending ability will stimulate teams to 'catch up' with city according to him. How does samuel square that circle in France, Germany and Italy where PSG, Bayern and Juve have all won something like 6 ot 7 consecutive league titles (ok PSG might have lost one a few years back but you get the drift!), those clubs being streets ahead hasnt resulted in any club never mind clubs, being able to challenge them and each now dominates its own league. But samuel will say it is great that city are so good and blame other clubs for not matching them, stupid fat bastard.

    Was Deeney even on the pitch!? He put more effort into lifting wee Joe off the ground by his throat than he did all game today. Fucking waster.

    I honestly do not know what is worst, these twats winning the domestic treble or them actually winning 'the' double. I hope all the smug twats who wanted this lot to win the league are feeling very, very, very smug now. Be very careful what you wish for English footie fans because when it comes true, you probably will not like it.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Nail on head. Not only city fans but also the everton bandwagon jumpers along with loads of other fans bang on about the disgraceful coach attack and suddenly being 'battered in the street' and 'victims of it all' is casually swept aside from any criticism. Even then if it is addressed it's a case of 'well you attacked the coach so getting battered in the street is just what you deserve.' Well, that's ok then. Except it isnt. I used to go to Maine Road with a couple of my City mates in the late 60's early 70's. It makes me shake my head when I read city fans saying Liverpool 'bought' success through the 70's. Oh really, so what about city in the late 60's early 70's then? I guess that's different, eh? Im also finding it distasteful the mantra coming out of city and even their ex players that 'no one wanted liverpool to win' with shaun wright phillips (who?) weighing in with such comments. When did football become like this? We seem to be having a case of absolute (footballing) power corrupts absolutely. Some folk, even on here, say to just ignore it. But how can you ignore football revisionism and the lie repeated so often it becomes the truth? There's something rotten in football now since the likes of Abramovic and Mansour came in and started throwing their money around in unprecedented amounts. Not even united and ferguson spoke of such shit about Liverpool outspending everyone in the 60s, 70s and 80s. I can only think of the season we bought Barnes, Aldridge and Beardsley where that was correct but even then, that was funded by Rush's transfer plus £500,000 cash.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Sorry, anyone in football, fans, players, coaching staff, sports reporters etc. who doesnt know the connotation regarding 'victim' chants and Liverpool FC, not to mention Sean Cox and 'getting battered in the street' is somewhat deluded. I dont recall fans getting 'battered in the streets' of Kiev. Except of course that local lad in the vid beating an older guy then getting a straightener when a red told him to knock it off so just how 'battered in the streets' refers to the Kiev final, I do not know.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Never ceases to amaze me that the media let the word 'victim' when directed at us go unmentioned. If we utter the word 'Munich' we get roundly condemned by the very same media. The people in the press box at grounds around the country must hear the 'victims' chant when we play yet all the sports writers, samuel, burt, ashton, bates, winter et al, all maintain an undignified silence. When is this going to be called out? Shameful. It is not right that the Hillsbrough families and people affected by the tragedy should have to sit in stadiums and hear this filth, much less find a professional football club, champions of england no less and its staff have resorted to such behaviour. It's a weird world isnt it? Resort to disgusting behaviour then point the finger of indignation at those we do complain and say that proves the 'victim' mentality.

    Tottenham Hotspur (N) 1/6/19 Champions League Final

    What does it matter if you win a final in 90, 120 minutes or even after pens?!

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Nope, losing FA Cup Finalist have always played the double winners every time as far as Im aware. Course the FA would be gauranteed a capacity crowd if we are the opponents so they could decide to hand us the spot.

    Tottenham Hotspur (N) 1/6/19 Champions League Final

    Just seen that complete incompetent Skomina has been announced as the ref for the final. We've lost all but 1 of the 5 previous ties he has officiated, the last one being the semi in Rome last season.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I just marvel at the dickheads who dont know this is Italian and so it's campione not champione. And am I just being sensitive or did those twats take a sly dig at us having their shirts with '19' on the back? I know its 2019 but wouldnt they rightly have number 4 or the number of titles they have won instead seeingas the title year is 2018 / 19?
  15. If Henderson starts next season as Jurgen's captain, as he will, people on here giving Hendo grief need to pack it in and realise, he's been Jurgen's choice for skipper for, what, the past 4 years? Either Jurgen's wrong or some fans are and I dont think it's Jurgen.

    Wolves (H) Premier League 12/5/2019

    This. No, it really isnt. Even Shanks said the league is the bread and butter. Proving yourself over now 38 games is head and shoulders over any convoluted mini group and knock out rounds where all sorts of vagracies can determine winners. I can understand non English and English new age fans thinking the CL is the most prestigeous but until the 'Champions League' is a proper league of National Champions,it will never be better than being Champions of England.

    Wolves (H) Premier League 12/5/2019

    It is ironic that 9mm and a stones clearance cost us a goal at the Emptihad. Mo or Mane's shot hits the post and bounces out. Sane hits the post and just goes in after wiping its feet along the goal line. We havent lost the league because we drew games. We've lost it because we didnt get a draw at their place. The boys looked like they were playing on fumes today after the Barcelona game. Credit to them, they must be crushed knowing this could have been so different. Im also amazed my ticket didnt sell for this game. Guess everyone without a ticket thought they had no chance so just went the pub instead.

    Wolves (H) Premier League 12/5/2019

    I dont know where to begin. For family health reasons, It came clear last night Im not going to be able to get to the match. Good luck to the boys, whether Im at Anfield or not wont make a difference to us winning the league or not. Going to return my seat in the SKD Upper at the last minute so no tout can buy it and sell it on for a stupid amount of money and a desparate fan manages to get into the game. So if you're reading this, go to the ticket office5 ot 10 minutes before kickoff and you might get lucky. Believe, never give up.
  19. He'll never get the recognition from part of the fan base. Even after the magnificent performances he has put in of late, there's only grudging comments about him doing well. The only thing missing from Hendo's game is being a regular goal scorer. Even if he started banging in goals, people are set in their minds he's not a 'Liverpool player.' The guy next to me in the SKD Upper keeps saying it.

    Divock Origi

    I love Divock, the lad's a rough diamond. He'll never be the most skillful or the highest goal scorer at any club, especially Liverpool. He just seems (in the nicest possible way) a Forest Gump type character. He was in the form of his life until that blue shithouse nobbled him. He's at his best when he just has to finish. I honestly believe Jurgen took away the best part of his game trying to make him better and make him become a more rounded team player. I still dont seehim displacing any of our front three and whether he is prepared to hang around knowing all he'll ever be here is 5th choice at best if we bring in someone else, who knows.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    They wont give a shit because depending who you support, your other rivals arent winning the title either. Have you forgotten how Anfield rocked to 'You lost the league on Merseyside' to united the season after Leeds beat them to it? Oh how we laughed at them while we finished 5th or 6th, was it? That's fickle football fans for you.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Heart breaking, absolutely heartbreaking. I dont know what's worse, not winning the title from 7 points clear or hearing all the fans jibbing us not just through the summer but at probably every fecking league and domestic cup game next season. Im normally quite optimistic but good luck to the people who think we're going to mount as good as run next season. This season has been a record breaker for us. You dont tend to get record breakers year on year. Yeah, we got the rub of the green in some games but so have city. 9 fucking millimeters that shot of ours was from going in before stones cleared it. It's like the footballing gods are laughing at us and saying 'remember Garcia's 'ghost goal'?' Sadio's incorrectly chalked off goal was possibly cancelled out by one of the 'luckier' goals we did get. Leicester had a real go at us at Anfield but despite their backs to the wall defending tonight, looked fucking woeful otherwise. That game tonight was destined to be a draw until every fucker in Leicester's team backed off kompany. He bought a ticket in the raffle and it won. They got a huge slice of luck tonight to put them in the boss seat. I'll keep believing until the final whistle on Sunday that Brighton can get something and we get a win. In some respects I wish Id just give up because this is painful but I cant. I really cannot believe the footballing gods are going to shit on us in full glare of every other fucking no mark fan. This must be what Christians felt like, tied to stakes in the Colosseum, when the lions were let loose in the arena.
  23. Been say this for years. Go right back to the 90's and our players were simply not the fitest. It was never a surprise to me united used to win so many games in the last few minutes. We all used to comfort ourselves with 'fergie time' etc but the plain fact was, they had more stamina than the other teams to go with the will to win. By the same token, it's no surprise to me that we now win so many games late on without 'fergie time.' We now have one of the best, if not the best sports science departments in the business. The player's diet from a nutritional point of view is now closely monitored as well with the lady Jurgen brought over from Bayern.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    We've drawn 'one too many games' because we dont have city's budget to have the squad depth they have. Next, the argument will be we drew 'one game too many' because we didnt buy just the one extra player who would have made the difference. But that's the point, it is not just one extra player, it is 11 extra quality players to cover the first choice 11. You dont get those extra quality players without the money they have else every other team that has won the league would have had them as well. None of them did.
