The quoted posts were implying that our shitness has coincided with the period when testing started. That’s not recreational drug use but a reference to the PED or asthma stories. Seemed to me you were talking about positive tests at Liverpool that were being swept under the carpet.There will definitely have been players caught. But every chance it's concealed and the club hide their absence by suggesting it's an injury or something.
Heck, my club Wycombe had a guy who was on trial for murder that we dressed up as being a "cold" for ages. They eventually upgraded it to "personal problems".
If not, I must’ve misinterpreted your post - apologies if so. Re: recreational drug usage and positive tests, I agree with your view.
