Can’t they just accept now that last season was a weird one-off season, COVID marred, rule changes, implementation of VAR, unbelievable luck with injuries, etc. Normality seems to be returning now.
“Are you Leicester in disguise” is surely the new chant

Jamie Carragher 22 (3%)

I gave Carra my vote. His reaction to Richarlison's goal was reminiscent of G Neville when Torres scored vs Barca in the CL semi.
Remember when everyone laughed at Jurgen for daring to mention the wind after a game a while back? Now Sky can't fecking stop going on about the weather.
Carra. Forever and a day Carra
about Nicol
You'd never think he was an ex player. Clueless and bitter.
Dalglish & Hansen always said he was thick as shit
What an absolute tube. He doesn't ever seen to tire of talking bullox does he
Looking at him you’d think he was think he was thick, then he opens his mouth.
on Jenas

BBC have got a story/video up wishing Jenas a happy birthday. We’ve reached a new low, people.
kinell

I imagine he's sat somewhere in his ivory tower stroking his cat congratulating himself at that. Fully expect him to be presenting at the next government coronavirus briefing.
“Back to you PM”
“Thanks ever so much JJ. We go now to questions from the general public.”
The idea of this actually happening isn't outside the realms of possibility now that you've painted the picture
“Jermaine Jeans’ best Premier League moments”
The shortest video in history.
Nah, the City Open Top bus parade must have been shorter
Jenas for the new Doctor Who?
He could learn some charisma and vocal delivery from the Daleks.
He's like something out of Madame Tussaud's. I'm surprised he doesn't melt under the lights. Absolutely insignificant knoobhead
Speaking of ‘JJ’....what a prick
https://www.football365.com/news/jermaine-jenas-jurgen-klopp-rude-moody-liverpool-outbursts
Mourinho constantly calls the entire world out and blames everything on anyone within 100 yards of him, acts like a c*nt in press conferences and interviews to the point that it’s now utterly tedious. “Hahahahahahaha, he’s box office, isn’t he?! Gotta love Mourinho!”

Klopp gets a wee bit tetchy for a few weeks during a pretty rough time. “Oooh, that’s not on that. Very disappointing.”
Jenas rhymes with penis.
on Savage

Savage. “It’s a great first touch that allows him to hit it first time on the half volley”.

Well which was it? Was it a great first touch that allowed him to hit it, or did he hit it first time? You can’t hit it first time if you’ve already taken a touch to control it.
They start to believe their own shite at some stage. Savage is one of the thickest twats on any media you care to mention. In days gone by, a „Journalist“ had to have a rudimentary grasp of the english language but alas no more.
Joe Cole
Joe Cole is thick as pigshit. Unbelievably dense.
Burnley

I wonder what this twat has to say for himself now?

Yep gummy prick always has been.

Still at least he had a stellar pro career to fall back on
Burley's up there with Danny Mills as the worst of the worst....purely and simply an obnoxious cnut of a man who substitutes footballing knowledge and insight with smearing his own shit up the walls of whatever studio he's blagged and bluffed his way into
If you're waiting for the likes of that prick to feel any sort of shame, embarrassment or contrition for being a dick then you're going to be waiting a long time.
He'll only be seeing it as how this affects him, and how Klopp not mentioning it now makes him look like a twat for having a dig at a grieving man. Burley will be storing that bitterness up ready to unload on Klopp again whenever he feels it's appropriate. Of that you can be sure.
Burley is vermin.
Has the gall to highlight a mental health and bullying charity in his twitter bio, but makes his money on ESPN abusing and being a vindicitive piece of shit to people he doesnt know the first thing about.
In keeping with the above, the best pundit on MOTD this season has been Eddie Howe...brought something different and interesting to the table...unfortunately he had to compete with Micah Richards farting out the usual ballbag-pundit clichés ...would have been an infinitely more interesting discussion with just Howe giving some insight. Used to enjoy the late lamented football league show on BBC with Manish Bhasin when Leroy Rosenior was on it, he was always good value in this one-to-one format...MOTD should try that, with just one knowledgable guest manager - as the host plus two cross-talking pundits format is beyond stale....

Gini playing like a man that doesn’t want to be here anymore.
To be fair he is running on empty. We are still in February and he has played 42 games for Club and Country already.
..
Still haven’t seen the first goal again, looked very close. Definitely worth a var check.
It's ruled out if we score it that's for certain.
Sure there was a replay that showed him onside?
Kabak was deeper than the rest of the defence and played him on.
--

Just imagine if we won the European Cup after all of this.
If we win the European cup this season I'll get a tattoo of a klopp quote on my chest and go topless to the first game I can get tickets for at anfield.
I don't like to bet against LFC but even I'd bet on us not winning it.
You of little faith.
---
Whats wee Phil Coutinho doing these days? Our midfield crying out for that type of player at the mo.
...
Has any footballer going through a hairline transplant ever played well until it was done?!
What? Lolol
yep, what?

To be fair we all hate Jermaine Jenas.
I actually don’t , even though he does speak like he was an all time great midfielder :lol:
Hoddle I can take all day as he was unbelievably talented and his technique was exemplary. Jeans talks like a Caf poster that someone in the media promoted to national TV. Just makes me laugh

We can talk about VAR.
We can talk about injuries.
We can talk about low blocks.
We can talk about lack of signings,
We can talk about inspired goalkeeping...

But we had more than enough chances to score today and our composure when and where it matters was atrocious. We can say the same about other games where we have lost recently. We put our chances away and we win games, maybe 2-1. We had far more possession in the opposition box and more chances than Everton but couldn’t put them away.
..
Where does 606 find those "Supporters" for fecks sakes. You have a couple of tossers phoning up and saying they want Klopoo out.
Salford ?
Anyone saying this instantly outs themselves as rival fans.
..
Thiago shouldn’t be judged on this season. Gini looks pretty terrible this season, and the midfield has clearly suffered from the injuries in defence. The same can be said about the attack. But, our recent inability to score baffles my comprehension.
this is your 12th post, not a single one of them between 2018 and 2020 when we were setting the world on fire. Something smells if you ask me
You really must try to hide it better and at least post occasionally when we play well you know
There seems to be a few of those on tonight, I wonder what could have happened today?
Fair point, but there are reasons behind my lack of posts. I look forward to posting in more positive times!
..
Remember when we came out gloating in the press after the 31st of January about how good we are at the fact we got 2 CB in for £2.5million.

Is thus true?
I just accept we'll concede a penalty every game now. We've conceded the most in the league.
@DomesticTadpole found iiiiiiit
Mane’s had his hairline done. Sounds crazy but my theory is that it affects form. I can’t remember a player playing well whilst this has happened. Andros Townsend was like a new player when he got his done, season he scored that worldie volley vs City. Shaqiri went missing and I remember Wayne Rooney’s form falling off a cliff when he got his done

NEVER underestimate what we as fans do to this club. Never, ever hang anyone playing in a red shirt out to dry until they have had the chance to prove themselves in the proper arena. We are not playing as we can because NOTHING IS RIGHT ANYWHERE! It's a totally fecked up World - and we're not there for them. We're not there to get them through the worst run of injuries in memory of pretty much everyone and our boys are suffering - the pressure on them must be immense. They can't bond properly. They can't do things as families together as they would. Like us, the can't go into town and mix. Yet here we are scratching our heads as to why we're not winning eveything?!

Honest question, what do you expect on a public internet forum after a humbling defeat whilst suffering poor form? You know full well the contact you'll be faced with, so why do it to yourself?
losing to a team that has been outspending us for years wasn’t humbling - it's about sodding time they won a game, just annoying because of who they are.
As for today, we were much better second half. Pickford made some great saves throughout. Bottom line they were better than us, we can point to injuries, VAR/referees etc. But honestly we haven't been good enough over 90minutes in the league for a while. Midfield is very passive, front 3 look lost and eventually we will concede.
Don't know the way forward, luckily it's not my job but I'll keep on supporting and trying to be positive before each game
If that's a penalty then I give up to be honest.
We were not good. Sorry. We were good against City and Leicester and good against Leipzig.
Today we were not good, we have now lost 4 in a row and today we gave it away super easy.
Our xG today was 1.54 what is interesting is that City won 3-1 against Everton midweek with an xG of 1.23. Our issue is that it we make far too many basic errors at the back.
Nothing ever breaks for us. Even the bounce of the ball never goes our way. Nothing ever deflects our way in the box.
Everton always seem to score every chance they get.
At this rate we won't finish top ten. We will need a lucky bounce to get some confidence back. We still have most of the ball in our games and we create chances. We should have scored from the chances we had today. Unfortunately our defence doesn't win us any points either.

what is this?

Its like we could play for a week at the moment without scoring though, one home league goal this calendar year!
Eh ?
We beat spurs 2-1 in December alone :)
You can’t believe that’s a true statement
Well what’s wrong with the statement? 1 league goal this calendar year at home.
That was 16th December.
Yeah, as I mentioned
Do you know what a calendar year is?
Yes do you
A calendar year is 12 months
I think he must mean this year
A calendar year is the period of time between January 1st and December 31st. So he/she wasn't wrong.
It’s a 12 month period of time on any given calendar
I’m
Looking at it now in the Oxford dictionary
calendar year
noun [ C ]

/ˈkæl.ən.dɚ ˌjɪr/
UK
/ˈkæl.ən.də ˌjɪər/
a period of 365 or 366 days, starting on January 1 and ending on December 31

Try that instead.
Both could be argued to be right.

Why you didn’t just say ‘this year’ is very odd
Better to be accurate, this year could have meant something else.
eeer, I think it is time to go to bed...

They need 34 points from their last 39 to at least equal Moyes’ incredible fall.

I meant dropped points from previous season.
Ah got you, still less than 24/39 doesn’t sound too outrageous on this current form. That really would be something. :lol:
