    Liverpool 2020-2021: Jurgen's Heroes

    Rock bottom ? The awful news of Allison’s dad .. Henderson’s probably done for the season .. Hard to see anything positive.

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    There were rumours that Rafa Benitez might be interested. He’s back from China and sniffing around for a gig.

    Week 25

    I think Chelsea are going to be looking at a lot of player unrest going forward. And I can’t imagine what Abramovich is thinking after spending all that money last summer on players that are, at best bit players. edit: Abramovich probably won’t care as long as they keep winning. But Tuchel...

    Week 25

    How offside does a player have to be before the flag goes up? This is beyond ridiculous.

    Week 25

    I have visions of both teams never leaving their own half and just staring at each other with an occasional Haka thrown in. Not to mention lots of chest beatings ala two gorillas in a standoff.

    Week 25

    There’s another ramification of the stupid offside rule. Chelsea gets a corner from a play where the player was clearly offside ... grrrrrrrr

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Ok .. thanks .. I agree that, if the tie goes into extra time the away goal should just be a regular goal. Minor tweak :) On the other hand, while its true the home teams have an extra incentive to play defensively isn’t the corollary also true ? Which was the original intent. I shall do...

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    While I understand this sentiment for this year, why do you dislike it? I think it’s a great rule. Nothing like a game on the knife edge where you go from losing to winning with a goal.

    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Yep .. gifted two away goals and really lucky that Leipzig couldn’t hit the ocean if they fell into it. Kabak looked solid , Henderson less so. Looking forward to seeing Davies .. although I don‘t think the Derby would be a wise introduction. .. especially up against DCL.

    Arguably should have been a foul on him anyways. Thought he should have rounded De Gea

    Agreed , the KloppOut thing is beyond stupid. Ive long thought that soccer fans (and media) are , by far the most reactionary of fan bases.

    Liverpool 2020-2021: Jurgen's Heroes

    Getting back to the Thiago discussion. On his debut he looked terrific against Chelsea , acting in the FabI Alonso role ... deep lying mid distributing the ball all over the field. But this was against 10 men who couldn‘t put any pressure on him. He’s looked at his worst when he’s being asked...

    Liverpool 2020-2021: Jurgen's Heroes

    Well .. I mentioned this in the game thread .. Allison was very much into sweeper keeper mode today, and was playing very well. Given that Kabak (who looks kind of slow on first observations) was on his debut and up against the likes of Vardy and Barnes that was understandable. On the play in...

    This is true .. but they expected to partner him with Fabinho/Henderson/Wijnaldum .. he was a luxury Cadillac signing which isn’t working out.
