- Soccerball Goooaaaaal! 2019/20 season
Not only an extremely pleasing result but when glancing at the Premier table, it’s not difficult to notice that Man U have played 23 with a tally of 34 points. Liverpool have a game in hand, having played 22 games and amassed a points total of 64.
IF they win their game in hand, they will have near as dammit double the points of ManYooooo….
Happy days.Posted 1 month ago
I’m pleased in a way that United didn’t get the mauling they deserved. They’ve stepped up and performed well in the second of their only two big games of the season and that’ll be enough to keep Ole in place for a while. A hammering today may well have seen the board give him their full confidence while trying to recruit Poch.Posted 1 month ago
This weekend has confirmed my thoughts that this is the worst Premier League season in terms of quality.

As a toon fan ..I’ve a real soft spot for Liverpool..never in a million years will we have the same kind of success as that club ..but we have shared some decent players over the years ..Keegan / Beardsley / Kennedy / Terry Mac / Barnes …Posted 4 weeks ago
and even took part in one of the greatest games the PL has ever seen ..4-3 ( twice )..
I’m pleased they are going to win the league at a canter ..
Game of the week though our boys getting a point at that other Merseyside club ..2-0 in the 94th minute and 2-2 in the 95th ..fantastico!!
Well based upon 91 out of 93 possible points, i’m not even thinking they only the best Liverpool team ever !
However, we’ll really need to see next year for that. I think at times Liverpool have been in the Goldilocks zone of football, it’s just worked, game in game out, time and time again. I don’t think it will quite work out so perfectly each and every game every week forever.Posted 3 weeks ago

But Liverpool will not be a great team until they retain the Premier league.
It is not great for the league to have one team running away with it.
Teams should kick Liverpool to stop them.
Waiting for the media to start saying the above about Liverpool – it’s exactly what they said about City two years ago. The last gem came from Danny Murphy – wonder if he will be repeating this about his former club?
I can however acknowledge that Liverpool have been amazing this season and will probably break many of the records that City set. I am sure that their fans will be modest and gracious in victory 😉Posted 3 weeks agomartinhutchMember
I’m trying to be….But… Why should they ? Were Citys fans that ? Were Utds ? So why should Liverpools be ?
Have a look back at the run-in on this thread last year. There was no gloating from the City fans on here (that I could see) – most of the long-termers can still remember playing in Division 2 so our present circumstances are very much a bonus to be savoured. Loads of posts congratulating Liverpool on their CL performances, urging them on.
Obviously, Man Utd are fair game for a bit of a gloat, though. 🙂 Apart from when they keep beating us at the Etihad.Posted 3 weeks ago

(One of) The mostest posting City fan here is forever having sly little digs at Liverpool…though very quiet this season for some reason or another. I know City fans are desperate for a rivalry, bless ‘em. Anyway, it’s football – it’s all about the pantomime, the hubris in smithereens, seeing everything binners says be proved wrong by events a few days later, etc etc.
How are Leeds fans feeling? Any baggies? I was listening on the radio the other night as they and WBA conspired to throw away their lead at the top, with Leeds crazily turning it around in the second half. While enjoying Liverpool’s dominance, the Championship is far more interesting for table-watching. Such a mad division. 😀Posted 3 weeks ago

OI! I pride myself on my reverse-Mystic Meg abilities. If you had any nouse you’d open a betting account and put money on the opposite of what I predict.
Thats what my darling wife does, Bravissimo. I predicted we’d get tonked last night. She stuck a fiver on us winning. She cashed out half way through the second half, quids in. She also stuck a tenner on us losing at home to Burnley last week, at 8/1 when I was holding out the vain hope we might actually get something out of that.
Man Yoo are proving very lucrative for her with our dismally inconsistent performancesPosted 3 weeks agoMSPMember
The past couple of years, Klop has clearly prioritized the champions league and premier league over the league and fa cups. And it has worked, CL last year, PL this and still will be one of the favorites for the CL, could still probably go through to the next round of the FA as well although I think as it progresses he still won’t play anywhere near his strongest team and won’t make the final.
The one thing that has surprised me is that he won’t manage or even go to the game, that is a bit off IMO, would be a great buzz for the kids that play to be managed by him for the night, really give them something to play for hoping to catch his eye. I wonder if it is something he said in the moment that he now regrets, just seems so contrary to his usual man management style.Posted 2 weeks agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate what little old Sheffield United are doing this season?
Favourites for relegation at the start of the season, told our style of football wouldn’t work, players that were playing in League 1, 3 seasons ago, written off by virtually everyone.
Almost safe by February, above Man U, Spurs and Arsenal in 5th, currently on for European football and all the pundits now noticing us.
