The King says we shouldn’t boo Coutinho when he plays for Brazil at Anfield tomorrow. He’s probably right, but if anyone at Anfield tomorrow wants to give him some shit then I feel like they’re entitled to. I wouldn’t do it myself (not that I’m going anyway) but if someone wants to let him know they don’t like the shit he pulled to get away then that’s fine. This just shows the difference between how people in the game think and the way fans do.
Footballers don’t see things like fans do. None of those players have any beef with Coutinho even though in our eyes he faked a back injury to get out of playing. You’d think his team-mates would be pissed off about it but I’d be willing to bet there isn’t one who feels that way. Like with that twat Ramos. We’d like to think that the players are angry about what happened and want revenge, but I bet they aren’t. I bet even Mo doesn’t give a fuck about it. As I say, they just don’t see things the way fans do.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are opening talks with Fellaini. Bloody hell, Wenger isn’t even cold in his grave yet and they’re already doing all they can to wipe out his legacy by signing the least Wenger player on the planet. Genuinely don’t know how any top side could even entertain the idea of having Fellaini on their books. Not a midfielder, not a striker, not even really a footballer. His position is “nuisance”.

Some Italian third division side want Karius on loan for a year. Fuck off, you publicity seeking pricks. Hate all this shite, happens all the time when some little nomark team sees an opportunity for five minutes of fame.
Meanwhile, at Anfield, Lovren had a great game but was on the losing side as Neymar and Firmino both got on the scoresheet as Brazil edged out Croatia. Bobby’s goal was boss, at the Kop end too. Absolute fucking joke that he’s not first choice for them. Thick Brazilian fucks with their centre forward blind spot. They won’t win the world cup as they’re basically just a workmanlike side that relies on occasional moments of brilliance. Germany will spank them again if they meet in this tournament.
Also today, Yaya Toure has done a scathing interview about ‘Pep’. The interview will be published tomorrow but from the teasers it’s been pretty hard hitting and he even accuses him of racism. Hope he refers to him as ‘Baldiola’ at least once, or I’ll be disappointed.
