    Mo got absolutely no service. Nigeria looked the better side although chances were few and far between.

    January 2022 Transfer Thread

    Over a £40m loss for the season before last and a probable loss of over £100m for last season. Even if they had 'bankrolled' the club, that money has to be paid back. Unless you want to subscribe to the city or chelsea finance model that is.
  4. Well you say that but seem happy to maintain the staus quo where nothing is done to wind in clubs dodgey deals with the game run by corrupt administrators, fans excluded from finals for the benefit of the sponsors or even the 'football family,' referees free to do what they want and give a decision one way one week and the opposite the following, see the club get a good kicking every now and then and oh yes, 14 smaller clubs de facto running the PL while leaching off the 'bigger' clubs who bring in the money they could only dream of if it wasnt for those clubs etc, etc. Id rather see efforts made to right a few wrongs and it's clear the current methodology is going to do diddly squat to change it but, that's just me.

    When are we likely to get definitive stadium news?

    Love it.The club making even more steps, no pun intended, to get more fans into the stadium and still some fuckers moan. A leopard never changes its spots, I guess.

    I agree. But we've been living in an age for sometime where public officials, police and other bodies cover their own arses first and foremost. The option is do nothing and continue to let the cunts get away with it.

    VAR Thoughts?

    It is majorly disappointing VAR is being used in England the way it is. Obviously I dont have access to all VAR issues where it's used in Spain, Italy, Germany, France etc. It would be interesting to know the number of contentious decisions VAR in those countries versus England. But, I always contend the biggest fault with VAR is down to Mike Riley. He never wanted it and used his authority to undermine its use. The mindset with VAR officials seems to be find any reasons to disallow goals. It is used at an almost forensic level: if action A cant be used to disallow the goal, can action B or C etc? It should just be was the goal legitimately scored not what happened 3 or 4 'phases' of the game ago. Yes, VAR makes it possible to do that but again, that wasnt the original proposal for it. The other issue we have is the appalling standard of referees in England. OK, Im baised but to me, cavani just runs into the Villa player. And even if the Villa player did block him, he's getting nowhere near that ball to defend it and the excuses made by the officials appear just that, excuses.
  8. Load of bollocks. You'd think training with world class keepers at world class training facilities trumps playing in the Championship at a struggling side with pathetic facilities every day. But not in Given's world, apparently.

    2021 Africa Cup of Nations

    Egypt and Mo kick off today, 4pm. And it's LIVE!
  10. The actual fuck? Just seen the bit in the Echo. No wonder that fat cunt samuel is posting shite but how come we're getting flak for this? Anyone would think we made the fucking LFTs that returned 'false positives' that came apparent after PCR tests. Other clubs want us investigated yet Leicester who have had the same game postponed twice had Barnes, Maddison and another player photographed at the recent World Darts competition? Even more reason to fuck this lot off and get the Euro league going.

    Can Martin Samuel get any lower?

    This fat cunt is at it again! In a piece where he questions why Leicester successfully applied to have the game against the shite postponed again due to Leicester having players absent at ACON, he says "Was this also a factor when the EFL postponed Liverpool’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal? Obviously, Covid positives are now putting greater pressure on clubs with significant numbers of African players but why should those with better homegrown pathways be forced to muddle through......." The suggestion is clear and panders to all the mongs who already subscribe to the view, Liverpool used the absence of Salah, Mane and Keita at ACON in the request to have the EFL semi postponed despite the fact Salah and Mane havent played in the competition this season and, wouldnt be back in time to play in either leg of the semi anyway. Ive already got one complaint about the cunt with the independent regulator after some 'chief' muppet at the paper replied to my original complaint by saying 'Martin's paid to give his opinions which, I consider he did in a fair and balanced way'! I feel another complaint coming on!

    VAR Thoughts?

    Much as I hated the goal being ruled out, it's not VAR at fault but the shit decision making then arse covering to back up the decision. I thought the goal was in doubt even though I saw the cavani running into the Villa attacker, because it looked to me the ball came off Ings head then hit his hand \ arm before crossing the line. That means the goal wouldnt stand under the rules. Looking at replays it then looked like it might have come off his thigh instead. Goal stands. Only then the commentators are blathering about Ings may be offside when the last Villa attacker touched the ball. That looked very tight. Then it's the 'block' on Cavani who runs into the attacker and some obscure part of the rule that it's a foul if the Villa player is offside and blocks a defender but only if the defender could get to the ball?! Funny how when Jota was blocked off in the Spurs box by a defender, Tierney waved play on and VAR said no foul. But tonight there was?

    Villa running out of time now, last 15 and going to leave gaps as they chase the game.

    Was it offside or Cavani running into the defender and claiming he was blocked?

    That 'Team Viewer' logo must be the smallest sized shirt sponsor they've ever had. Did someone at the PL finally go along with a tape measure now they're winning fuck all and say their Sharp, Chevrolet and other shirt logos were all oversized and breaking the rules and had to reduce the size? Ings, 1-1 Did that hit Ings' hand?

    He'd be playing tonight but he's had a bit of a 'debate' aimed at Ralf according to a report.

    PODCAST: Liverpool 4 Shrewsbury Town 1 - Match Reaction

    It's early days but I dont get the hype about Konate either. Not saying he's no good by any stretch but I think there's a bit of a lack of focus at times. He wasnt switched on for one of Brighton's goals and I just dont know what he was thinking on Shrewsbury's opener. If that had been Kabak or young Rhys Williams, they'd have got slaughtered for that.

    The 97

    I first saw the 'Hillsbrough Law' mentioned in the telegraph of all places a few days ago. It appears Brighton have come out and lent their support to it. Also, Shrewsbury Town FC have issued a strong statement about the 'fans' shown making those vile chants last night. Brighton have become the first Premier League club to join Liverpool in backing the Hillsborough Law Now campaign. On Friday, politicians from across the political spectrum, including two former Prime Ministers, bereaved relatives, trade unionists and the victims of other historic injustices gathered to demand the introduction of a Hillsborough Law. In just a matter of days, the movement has gathered plenty of interest and Brighton have become the next Premier League club to publicly show support. The Seagulls issued a powerful statement on their official website to show their support for the campaign. It read: “ Brighton & Hove Albion are proud to add their support to the campaign to launch a Hillsborough Law to provide transparency to bereaved families and rebalance the scales of justice in the UK. “The new law, proposed in 2017 by the Hillsborough families and survivors, and championed by the Mayors of Liverpool and Manchester, Steve Rotherham and Andy Burnham, seeks to compel all public officials to be truthful at inquiries into public tragedies. “It also aims to ensure bereaved families have access to adequate public funding to support their quest for answers. “We stand in solidarity with all the families who lost their loved ones at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989, or as a result of the tragic events; the survivors and Liverpool Football Club – who have carried themselves with such dignity for almost 33 years in the search for truth and justice – and call for a Hillsborough Law Now. “Justice for the 97. “Brighton & Hove Albion FC” https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/liverpool-hillsborough-law-brighton-22697402

    Nike deal

    Bit difficult to say what a kit's like when it's a drawing rather than an actual picture. I think they float the ideas early to see what fans reactions will be.
