A long, long time ago I stopped coming onto this site because of the amount of idiocy being displayed by some of the posters .. basically, I’d had enough of it. I just came back to see how things are and I walked straight into that garbage from “Notoriousbingo” (I think he mis-spelled “idiot” as “bingo” in his name.) So nothing has changed .. the morons are still out in force. I still can’t be bothered with all this lunacy so that was a fleeting return. I’m off again.
All this highbrow conversation is way too intellectual for me.
Red Herring … I think you are doing Divock a HUGE disseervice there. Watch it again .. he was TOTALLY switched on to what Trent was doing. Divock definitely WAS watching the ball. Do you really think he’d have been able to score that goal without being alert to the situation?
Barcelona do not have any full backs. Therefore Salah and Mane will run riot against them and they will not be able to cope. When did Alba or Semedo last have to make a tackle? I’m very confident about both legs.
Bamford really is one of the most obnoxious players around. He’s pathetic. (And also a very poor finisher.)
This is a joke, right? It’s not April 1st is it? Sturridge is frightened of a tackle, so how long do you think he’d last in midfield before he gets another “injury”? Hmmm, bringing creativity to the midfield … he seems to have an aversion to passing the ball, so how could be possibly be creative? As for Matip, he’s a 6ft2 (or more) defender who never wins a header. Neither of these two is good enough in their proper roles, so what makes you think they would succeed in midfield? We’ve got plenty of midfielders to play there.
Easy to see why PSG win every game in the French league. It’s obvious that nobody is allowed to tackle in that league. How else can anybody explain why they all seem to fall over every time an opponent gets within two yards? They are a good team with some excellent players but that display of histrionics and play-acting was appalling. They may be good, but they’ll never be great with all that cheating.
I don’t ever want to see Sturridge in a Liverpool shirt again. People here, on telly and in the press keep banging on about his unquestioned skill and finishing ability. I don’t get it. I’d prefer to describe him as lazy, selfish and not good enough.
NOLU .. .as I said, some people need to take a long hard look at themselves. You are one of them if you believe all that tosh about Harry Kane. Humble? Stealing goals, telling the world that lt’s all about him winning the golden boot. That doesn’t define humility in my book.
In reply to Blueowner …. what “leadership skills” does Kane possess?
Yes, Kane is a great choice. A real team man. Claiming goals from teammates when he doesn’t get a touch. Giving an interview just before the last game of the season where he said “it’s all about me getting to 30 goals and winning the golden boot”. Yes, a great choice as captain .. so inspiring.
Personally, I don’t give two hoots about England but those who do need to take a good look at themselves.
I hear that after watchign Saturday’s games Harry Vane, oh sorry Kane!, is claiming two gaos at Anfield, one at Swansea and one at Southampton!!!
Amid all the whingeing and moaning about City’s second “goal” being disallowed, I don’t hear any mention of the ref’s other major error. How did Ederson avoid a red card after pushing Mane in the chest FOUR times? You raise your hands to an opponent and a red card should automatically follow. Come on guys, if you’re going to say that the disallowed goal changed the game then let’s have some perspective. City going down to 10 might just have had a mojor impact too, don’t you think?
Hightown .. I’m with you. I’m sick of all the Sturridge apologists banging on about how “he’s world-clas”, “he scores goals”, “there’s always a piece of magic likely”.
NO NO NO. He’s lazy, he won;t take part in the high press (he just ambles about when he should be closing down defenders), he’s arrogant (his face when he was subbed last night .. he couldn’t believe that Klopp would actually dare to sub him!), he will never pass when there’s a chance to shoot from 25 yards, he’s sulky and he’s nowhere near the player he used to be. His days at LFC are well and truly numbered and I for one will be glad to see the back of him at the end of the season.
An example .. Harry Wilson chased down a pass back to the keeper and very nearly got a fluke goal when the clearance hit him. Does ANYBODY seriously believe that Sturridge would even have THOUGHT about doing that? Don’t make excuses about his injuries – he’s in the team to do a job so he must be fit enough or he wouldn’t be there.
So how about we all stop bigging him up and realise that he just ain’t all that?
CM .. having watched your You Tube clip, I stand by everything I said.
steveosnakeey … why would Herrera even THINK about putting his hands to his face when he knew full well that Firmino’s push was nowhere near to his face? Please don’t try to make excuses for this cheat.
TS7 .. straws? clutching?January 17, 2017 at 12:13 pm in reply to: Herrera’s stats stand out for Man Utd; Januzaj’s bad touch nightmare #1418470
Do Herrera’s stats include how many times he’s feigned a non-existent injury to try to get an opponent sent off, as on Sunday?
mufc .. if we want to discuss the Firmino – Herrera incident, let;s talk about Herrrera’s embarrassing cheating trying to get Firmino sent off by falling over holding his face when he’s been (slightly) pushed in the chest. What an all-round top guy .. a credit to your club.
I told all my mates when Guardiola was appointed that he’d be found out big-time this year, and everything I’ve seen so far tells me I was right.
Anybody can manage Barcelona in a two-team league or Bayern in a one-team league. Not so easy when there are other teams who are just as good, is it? Why do the media keep perpetuating this myth that he’s a fantastic manager? He isn’t .. he’s just been very, very lucky to walk into jobs at two dominant clubs with established top-class squads And now the situation is different and, to be honest, he’s floundering. Would a top-class coach be so bereft of ideas? I don’t think so.January 16, 2017 at 12:37 pm in reply to: Ref Review: The controversial decisions from matchday 21 #1417922
I don;t see too many “controversial decisions” being debated here. How can the Pogba handball possibly be construed as controversial? Even Stevie Wonder would have given that one.
There WERE controversial decisions in that game .. but you have chosen to ignore them. Such as the three over the ball ankle breaker fouls by Rooney, Valencia and Pogba, all of which could have deserved a red card, but none were given. Like Lovren being yellow-carded for a perfectly fair tackle which wasn’t even a foul, never mind a cardable offence. Like Pogba’s repeated fouling which didn’t draw a card. Like Herrera’s laughable face-holding reaction to being pushed in the chest … no card for gentlemanly conduct? (He got the yellow for pulling Firmino’s shirt) And yes, Firmino could have had a red for his silly reaction to that. Like Valencia being a good two yards offside before crossing the ball which led to United’s goal.
Do you see a pattern here? Let’s leave the real controversies alone and just concentrate on the obvious! I used to think Michael Oliver was a good referee .. he was absolutely abysmal yesterday. And that in itself creates a lot of controversies which you have chosen to ignore.
