You’re probably right. I was really just making a crappy joke. I muted him a few seconds into his schpiel.Martino said something like - I don’t think that is the kind of call VAR is supposed to overturn. He thinks judgement calls should be left to the on field referees. I don’t think he ever said it wasn’t a foul, but I could be forgetting..
If Liverpool don’t offer him a coaching job after he retires then they’ll be missing out.Amazing what Milner brings to the side. It wasn’t just the clearance off the line - it was continuing to rise the ref well after the bad no call on the opening goal, it was throwing his body into tackles and clearances, it was sprinting his ass off to chase 50/50 balls... he brings an intensity and edge like Henderson does. I’m not sure it inspires his teammates as much as it does wear down opponents and annoys the hell out of them. It works!
When I posted this two weeks days ago I was trying to be funny, but I actually think there's a real chance now the season will not be completed. Liverpool may be in a race to clinch the title before they stop playing games.Liverpool would not necessarily be crowned Premier League champions if the season was curtailed by the coronavirus, Telegraph Sport can reveal.www.telegraph.co.uk
in these bleak times, we can all use a good laugh.From Uni-Watch: Liverpool’s new away kit has leaked. My goodness it's bad.
And apparently, this will be the new home kit. I'm not sure if the fear of something truly awful makes me think this is "not bad" or I find the green completely superfluous.A potential dispute has been avoided after Nike informed Liverpool “it’s only right” that they complete the 2019-20 season wearing their current New Balance kit.
Nike’s lucrative five-year contract with the Premier League champions-elect officially begins on June 1, 2020. As a result the American company could have pushed for Jurgen Klopp’s side to wear the new kit for all fixtures held after that date.
That raised the prospect of captain Jordan Henderson lifting the trophy wearing Nike, which would have been a devastating blow to New Balance given the value which would be attached to those images.
However, following discussions between Billy Hogan — Liverpool’s managing director and chief commercial officer — and both suppliers, it has been agreed that the change of kits won’t happen mid-season, regardless of whether the remaining fixtures are held after the end of May due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
One reason I’ve always felt Liverpool and the Sox made sense as partners is the colors - not just the primary red and white, but they share a history with that Fenway-esque chalky green. The Sox also have navy of course, and Pool uses a lot of complimentary yellow/gold. But the visual connection is uncommonly strong.When they finish the season, they will finish in New Balance kits.
Why Nike will let Liverpool lift the title in New Balance kit
