Jesus, theres no need for that @SteveJ
Liverpool talk about their teams that have actually managed a title push this millienium (2009 and 2014) as though they were incredible treble-winning seasons. I saw one fan say he still likes Sterling as we was part of that “special” 2014 season. Which was really a bunch of average players who managed to challenge for the league because it was an open year after Fergie left and they had an utterly sensational Suarez. Yet I’m sure United teams that genuinely won the treble were full of overrated players who would never have got into their special teams of 2014 and 2009.
It's amazing but it's true. Almost winning something counts more than winning everything to them. Weird bunch.
He wrote all that shite to finally conclude that its' hard to say how the game will go? Well, that's some genius analysis there.
Random Liverpool fan on the internet tries to explain the nuance of the offside rule to a Premier League linesman
Also apparently blocking a players path to the ball leading to them kicking you is a foul now these days on the person who got kicked
are they still going on about this?
They need to get over that bloody Spurs match.
They get a penalty and it is blatant and they deserve to get penalties.
The opponent gets a penalty and they are “cheats” “scum” the FA is “corrupt” etc etc. They really do play the victim card all the time. Ridiculous.
Almost hope that Benitez comes out on top vs José, then Klopp's 75m defender makes a mistake to let Southampton win. Im sure that will give the mods on RAWK enough incentive to not ban any man who lets himself dream about the possibility of a new saviour. Should be fun
after a week of the usual outrage, its important to step back and look at the bigger picture
The inevitable from the scousers, after a Benitezcastle win over 'Sgt Shitcoat's Spawny Tarts Club Gang':
Yes, the following really is the beginning of a post about football:
That's Tom Friedmanesque - he's always doing something mundane, like playing golf or chatting to a taxi driver, when he has a "Eureka" moment in which the activity he's currently engaged in suddenly symbolizes completely unrelated yet supposedly groundbreaking insights like the impact of climate change on sweatshop workers in Dushanbe or the growing popularity of Hershey Bars in Senegal.
What a load of fecking bollocks, pretentious twat.
A poll on there for the greatest FA Cup shocks. No mention of Palace's 4-3 win in 1990 or the ever-hilarious Wimbledon win in the 1988 final.
Edit: It's mentioned & dismissed, as the Dons were a top-flight team. Apparently, overcoming 17/1 odds wasn't a shock.
They were barely top flight as they'd just been promoted that season. And the season before that.
"Man for man we have the better squad," he says.
Then proceeds to name a full back who has hardly played this season as better than Valencia. Names one centre half and skips the midfield and goalkeepers entirely.
They would lose Salah to Madrid or Barcelona eventually. And then they burn his jerseys too. They are so deluded that it's not even funny.
Bercelona and R.Madrid his bitch
He did that twice actually winning the title in Spain with Valencia in 2002 and 2004..
I'm sure that post, and the "next year is our year" posts are basically copy pasted every season
I've read the "man for man our squad is better than theirs" or "I don't think any of their players would get into our side" or "I wouldn't swap any of our players for theirs" comments like 100's of times - even during seasons when we ended up winning league title after league title under SAF
The mind boggles.
Based on form, and if I was a Liverpool fan, I’d only take the two players he mentioned and maybe a CB.
Aside from that they’ve got us covered. On this season, too, wouldn’t have Sanchez in their team ahead of the way their front 3 play as a unit.
14 years ago.
Around about the last time Wenger won the league.
Rafas day has been and gone.
I think this goes here:
Even Georgie Bingham, who is not the greatest football expert, took him to task about that yesterday.
The squad comparisons were a go to for them for years, even when we were winning league titles and challenging the CL, they'd only go as far as begrudgingly admitting that Ronaldo was world class, saying that there wasn't much between Vidic/Ferdinand and Carragher/Skrtel
This is annoyingly what happens whenever Liverpool do remotely well, or just aren't shite. The hyperbole and sycophantic praise reaches nauseating levels. Imagine what would happen if they actually won something
That I don´t understand... They have the best player and manager and have had for the last 25 years..
It must all be one giant conspiracy!
You can always gauge what sort of form Liverpool are in by the appraisals Henderson gets. When all's well in the land of Klopp, he's England's future CM and the as sturdy as the rock of Gibraltar. When they inevitably start to drop points to relegation battling sides he can only pass sideways and is a total waste of space. Much like Liverpool, the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.
Truly mind boggling but I suppose it was only corruption, refs, conspiracies, UEFA, UFO’s, the FA, whiskey nose, FIFA, Hitler being alive etc which stopped them from dominating.
They've always had the best manager in the world and the best player in the league (often time the world) in addition to the best starting xi, best squad, best atmosphere, best match program etc; but oddly end up winning nothing. I think they might be delusional.
Where is the update?
RAWK probably deleted their site after that Matic goal.
What does this even mean?
Makes it even more satisfying that we beat Crystanbul in Crystanbul fashion.
Reads like 'Pep or money?'
"No matter what happens we're better."
"Has he feck"
