Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

One other thing-Sterling. In recent days there has been talk of him going to Real Madrid, earning something like £500,000 per week and now being almost up there with Messi and Ronaldo in ability. Really? I know yesterday was a difficult game for him but considering he had a lot of the ball, especia...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

The scousers have been lucky with injuries and decisions. A full strength City side would probably have one that. The back up defenders for City are not as good. Stones for example was and is, dreadful. Lucky with injuries? They've had their £50m+ goalkeeper out inured for half the season so far an...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

These games between top clubs can be dull and cagey games but today was good to watch-even people like Keane and Murinho enjoyed it. I have been saying for some time that this is a powerhouse side with a great work rate plus some tremendously skilful players. The only question as I see it is whether...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Add me to the Swift love-in. On days like that you can see how much players with classy backgrounds like Swift and Ejaria enjoy playing together as they are so aware of where each other is on the pitch. A very good performance on a day when fans were bound to get wet at some stage and I feel for Roy...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Thats just weird. Some people just like to go to football and I did mention that he is Irish. And pay for a season ticket at a club that he doesn't like, who are in the premiership? That isn't "just going to football". What does the fact he's Irish have anything to do with it? Oh dear-joi...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Hating both teams doesn't make you neutral, it makes you biased against both teams. :roll: But both teams can't lose so neutral is a good enough description as being neutral means that you don't care about the result. Pedant. Not caring about the result doesn't mean you'll judge the players or perf...

This. It would be like me going to watch a game between Swindon and any Neil Warnock managed side. A traditional rival and a team I just don't like. Would you go though? :wink: If I was given a free ticket and had nothing better to do, possibly. Why did your SiL go to the Bournemouth v Man Utd game...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

We should do everything to shift in Jan, even if it's free.....however if we're stuck with him he may as well be around the squad. He had shown his quality throughout his career before joining us. He's clearly a confidence player who was at the club in the dire Gourlay era. I wouldn't say I expect ...

The neutrality was in respect of this game as he doesn't like Bournemouth either so his comments would have been fair and even, Neither do I but for this fixture I would probably have just about wanted Bournemouth to win as my dislike for Man Utd is stronger.

Son-in-law went to Man Utd's game on Saturday.

Re: VAR

I noticed that Aurier was praying quite a lot after the incident-I wonder if it was for the injured player or for himself not to be punished.
As he didn't even get a yellow maybe God is on Spurs' side as well.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Royality creeps In Tell me Vic. Are you a Scouser or an Armchair supporter?

I know a few Liverpool fans and the nearest they have been to Anfield is Liverpool Street Station.


When I lived in Reading 50 years ago I did go to Liverpool Street once or twice. :wink:
