  1. Well, I hope that this incident and yesterday's Southampton incident finally shut the VAR naysayers up.

  3. Candidate for worst opening post of the year?
  4. At least we won - and on a cold and misty night too which are not exactly great playing conditions. Definitely the B team playing with a touch of A - there were players out there last night that are ok as sub's but playing collectively they are a disaster. Last night the back four were shambolic at times. I did feel for Cahill at one point who was at least trying to organise the back four especially when we were defending a deep in our half free kick when, despite Cahill's insistent pleadings for Christenson to get into position, the lad seemed to turn deaf and was shuffling around like a headless chicken. Barcley & RLC looked hapless imo - the former at least tried but the latter looked like he was a fish out of water and knew it and promptly gave up trying. I've a long way to go to be convinced by RLC. Why we want to get rid of Willian is beyond me. He gets stuck in every match, pulls the opposition defence to pieces at times, provides assists and scores the occasional goal. Decent player imo and if he turns out to be good enough for Barcelona then he's surely good enough for us.
  5. He was a sour bar steward for sure. Hard done by - haha!
  6. Disgusting from Redknapp and Co. Chelsea - masters of the dark arts that every other snow white Premier League team has nothing to do with. Utterly bizarre.
  7. We played superbly today - good atmosphere from the Chelsea mob too. Burnley whose hard-core normally make a heck of a racket were noticeably quiet! Amusingly, the pub (under the bridge and on the right from the shopping centre) has been renamed The Royal Dyche! Even funnier is that the Henry VIII image on the hanging sign is actually an image of Dyche - brilliant! I'm not sure that we've played any better than this this season - Burnley (apart from a fast start) were played off the park. All our players put a shift in apart from Morata (who didn't have a bad game to be fair - it's just that he's so flipping static, like he is just waiting for the perfect ball in to him). Sad to see Pedro go off injured and there was a nasty tackle on Kepa in the second half. Shame on the couple of fans who couldn't keep their mouths shut during the Last Post - muppets!
  8. Sensible perspective re midfield options from Sarri. Good as he was RLC is receiving some over-hyping from some fans - nice to get some balance from the professional viewpoint.
  9. Hoddle: the difference between Chelsea and the Mighty Spurs Who Bring Young Talent Through is... ...Chelsea have a cabinet full of trophies. Dumb Klutz! Easy to pontificate from afar when your head is not on the chopping block each week.

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    How is he young at 24 years of age? He's about halfway through his professional career. He's gone as far as he ever will imo.
  11. Hahaha. Jose in post match interview; (paraphrased) MUFC had a phenomenal season last year as they, wait for it... ... came second in the EPL, won their CL group and reached the FA Cup final. How the mighty Reds have fallen.
  12. BT coverage is woeful. MUFC vs Valencia - awful biased commentary. Three MUFC pundits - what's that about? Hardly going to be unbiased is it. Can anyone explain the Liverpool Crest images during the breaks? Have Liverpool got shares in BT or something? Jeez - I'm tired of this incessant northern bias...

    Welcome Ross Barkley

    Spot on - I'm fed up with some of his nonsensical passes leading to significant problems for us as you describe. I'd throw Christensen into the 'probelmatic bin' too who has been wobbly ever since the Barca' match last season when he stuffed us. Wrong thread though. Lots of calls for these young and not so young players to start but I can see why managers tend to stick with the obvious first elevens for most matches.
  14. Have spent some time on RAWK & RC this morning and yes, we are getting quite a bit of praise which is nice to see. Both are decent forums with some very knowledgeable and articulate members - although, like most football forums they do attract some vile pieces of work. General consensus is the same as on here, a decent striker short of the title, a rapidly improving work in progress and Sarri getting great praise. One of the things I like about Sarri is that there is bugger all that the (pro-Northern/pro-Liverpool) press can dig him out on which takes the heat off of us for a change. Superb advertisement for the EPL yesterday, fair result - we won the first half and they won the second. We were the best of the two matches this week and it was great to beat Klopp who was desperate to stay in the cup. Only negative yesterday was the odd sub' of Kovacic for Barkley, with the latter again giving the ball away in critical areas - I'm giving if 50:50 responsibility with Kante for allowing Sturridge to get that amazing shot off. Getting a tad fed up with the 'developing youngster' tag attached to him - he's a couple of months shy of 25 for gods sake! Great start to the season for us - well ahead of my humble expectations tbh. KTBFFH
  15. Hope to god that we win this one as apart from the top 4 connotations there's a lot of pride at stake here.
