Liverpool playing like any number of teams over recent years that are trying to get their manager fired.

The most unlikely source of a tying goal.
I was waiting for Mac to be called offside and a week of convoluted explanations about why in this specific instance because of how the sun hit the number on his shirt he interfered with the keeper.

Liverpool didn’t deserve the win there but that was absolutely mind boggling reffing

Any accountability and transparency and Taylor doesn’t get a sniff of a premier league game for the rest of the season.

No one on the broadcast carrying water for the refs. All 100% agree that call was wrong and Liverpool should have led the game.

Robbie saying he would have put the ball in the back of the net and dared the ref to award it is killing. No doubt it Gakpo kicked that ball, he’s seeing yellow. Utter shit from Taylor.

I almost posted something similar for the Everton game. It really does feel like a team that’s given up on their manager.
I lost a long post on the subject but I was shocked at LFC’s poor performance, attitude, energy levels, you name it. The core is fried.

Blades back down, Foxes back up, it was always thus.

Toffees secure mathematical safety with a win over Brentford in the 12:30 game.

Until City’s hearing where Everton get docked points because their shade of blue is close enough.

Believe me I have an asterisk in the back of my mind. We are safe*.

pretty sure that we will be docked points for something that happens at the Euros, in Latvia vs Portugal or summat

3 wins at Goodison for the Toffees in a week, all clean sheets, with two goals from Idrissa Gana Gueye, giving him 3 on the season. That’s as many as he had in 99 games over 3 full seasons with Everton the first time around.

If Spurs are going to sell out their defense to generate offense as a tactic, they should actually shoot the ball and shoot it on target. The offense has been very timid in 2024, particularly in first halves.

Also whoever is setting up corner kick defense for Spurs needs to not be on the coaching staff anymore and possibly be in jail.

Massive game at the bottom of the Bundesliga going on ATM. 0--0 Gladbach - Union Berlin 32nd minute.

I would feel a LOT better with a win today.

I wonder if the fact that Arsenal score so quickly made them reluctant to go to VAR on the penalty shout. Shouldn’t matter, but taking a goal off the board seems like you really need to be sure, whereas if it had just been out of bounds maybe they review?

If you always bet on PL refs being cowards, you’ll never go broke.

Union just had three shots either just miss or stopped by excellent goalkeeping in the span of about 2 minutes. Anxiety levels rising...

First was a beauty by Aaronson just tipped away.

I don't like the penalty call, 50/50 play with the guy winning the ball coming out of the player's blind spot. Unfortunate you cant judge on intent.
