    Liverpool 2022/23: We Go Again

    I don’t think it’s difficult. Trent is an adult, though young, playing in one of the most competitive and high profile leagues in the world. The team must have some fantastic sports psychologists. I’d be leaning on them to support the mental struggles he’s enduring right now, and use them to...

    I don’t think Conte’s system is going to bring enough results in this league. Almost every team has a player that can break a defense with an individual moment of brilliance. The top teams all can take down the low block. There are too many hotheaded players that can do something stupid at any...

    Looks like the fans have forgiven Partey.

    That’s orange at most, and a “Look at me!” moment for Anthony Taylor.

    Every time you look at that second goal it’s worse for Lloris. He’s really fallen off a cliff.

    Lloris has done a fantastic job on his Zaha face.

    That Messi goal was pretty, but who the fuck is giving him yards of space behind?

    Once the decision was made to let the cars unlap themselves, all of them must do so. They couldn't all have made it before the end of the race. The objective error in rule application was to only allow the cars between Lewis and Max to unlap. That shouldn't have happened.

    GW 8: 9/16 - 9/18 game thread

    The folks in Monza tend to be focused on another sport to disappoint them, so I tend to agree that they’re going to grab on to this one. They dominated, too. Juve had two shots on goal and 40% possession. Di Maria‘a red didn’t cause this by any stretch (though I hope he misses the World Cup...
