    Liverpool Match Thread

    Still can't believe he beat Salah in a one-on-one foot race in the second half

    Despite everything

    Still in it until the numbers say otherwise. Yup, it's the hope that kills ya. Whatever the outcome the players can still hold their heads high, having played some entertaining football. Perhaps we could have stayed up by parking the bus, but what a boring season that would have been.

    I had a dream....

    And you think that would stop their fans claiming that a season without a loss is 'perfect'?

    Has Pukki been found out?

    Agreed, particularly about confidence. Hopefully he can bang a couple in with chances he doesn't have time to think about and at least one of those two problems will dissipate.
  5. ... that we scored early against Liverpool and held on to a one goal lead until the 96th minute when Liverpool equalised, only for it to be ruled out by a very dubious VAR decision. Liverpool fans were incensed and banged on about being 'robbed' of the perfect season for years to come. Never had a dream come true yet.... but wouldn't this one be a belter
  6. Not sure if your question was about the football club or the place. In either case my answer would be the same.... "Do whatever I could to accelerate coastal erosion"
  7. My tongue was very firmly in my cheek when I wrote this..... I didn't think for one moment it would happen

    Pellegrini sacked

    Much as I dislike the bloke, in most matches Grealish looks head and shoulders above the rest of the team, and when he was out through injury they were absolute pants. I sincerely hope the tabloid rumours are true about him leaving in January are true.... at least there will be one team we are guaranteed to finish above.
  9. Perhaps there should be one minute's silence before every PL match on New Year's Day to mourn the sad demise of football as a spectator sport, the final fatal blow being delivered by VAR at Carrow Road on 28th December 2019.

    It’s Not Football Anymore

    Why oh why are they so insistent on a players shoulder possibly being one mm offside, but then allow Spurs to take the free kick that resulted in a goal 3-4 yards further back from where it was awarded, thus giving the taker a better chance of getting it over the wall and back down into the goal?

    How many will Harry Kane score

    Harry Kane score at Carrow Road? Nah, couldn't possibly happen...... well not in a yellow shirt anyway.
  12. I've got a different opinion to the one I had before the last game..... I seriously need to give myself a good talking to.

    Don't get disheartened.

    Sorry Lakey, but I can't agree with you. Today was one of the most disappointing games I have seen for a long time. For the first 45mins we played as well as I have seen us all season and should have killed the game off by half-time. But once again we let it all slip away in the second half. There have been other games where we have played well in the second half, but have been playing catchup following a poor first 45. I know some will point to our defeat of Man City as a valid argument against my opinion, but that was earlier in the season when we were still pretty much an unknown quantity to most 'big' teams, the ground was a cauldron of noise, the players were leading the reigning champions and running on adrenaline. When we play our best game we can be a match for anyone. The problem is that we seem incapable of maintaining that level for a full 90 plus minutes. Perhaps the intensity of the game we need to play in order to compete at this level takes a little too much out of out players, physically, mentally or both. I really hope I am wrong, but for the first time this season I honestly think that we are not quite good enough for this division - close, but not quite the complete article yet. Going into this season I thought we had potentially the best team for quite some time, more than capable of surviving the jump up and consolidating ourselves as a Premiership side at least for a few seasons. I now worry about us, not just going back the Championship ( I rather enjoy it there, especially the lack of VAR), but more importantly losing our young home-grown talent to established Prem teams, thus undoing all the good work that has been done over the last couple of years.

    Fire sale

    Hopefully this is all pure speculation, as we will manage to grab enough points in the second half of the season to stay up. My biggest worry is that most of our attractive young prospects are doubly so because of the home-grown rule. I can see big teams coming sniffing round in January for players like Godfrey and Aarons. If we lose them we can no longer keep robbing the lower German leagues because we will have too many overseas players.
  15. Watching Wolves v Spurs, they had periods where they seemed to be playing Tottenham off the park. I think they were really unlucky to come away with nothing from that game, and I'm worried we are going to get the backlash as they will be determined to not drop points 2 games in a row. Maybe Leicester players underestimated us a bit - I can't see Wolves doing the same, as I'm sure Nuno will point to our Leicester result as a warning. The crowd are really going to have to get behind the team for this one.
