Yep, that’s how dirty Liverpool were Steve. Every time we got the ball they fouled us. Ironically the ref didn’t give a foul when James was taken out with a forearm smash to his head! And he got taken out twice like that, so the foul count should have been even worse.
No point complaining though, we’ll just get on with it.
Another great result for a PL newly promoted team last night, well done Sheffield United. Played really well and fully deserved the win.
Good to see another PL ref coming down hard on players who simulate. Clear contact on Saka (far more than what was on Origi) but a clear exaggeration following the contact too (though not as much as Origi), hopefully that is what all refs do from now on.
I can see why Liverpool would want to support their player but under the circumstances they made a huge error in judgment. It’s one thing to support him before the FA hearing but once the ban had been decided on then it becomes another one.
Every club has been guilty of errors in judgment over the years, this must go down as one of the bigger ones.
Kingo, I dislike Danny Rose with a passion. I have never seen a player “fall down” so much during a game as he does. Sterling, Neymar, Young any of them. If anyone gets to within 6 feet of him, he’s rolling around on the floor holding onto any part of his body that he sees fit. The guy is a disgrace. And a complete knob head!
Yes Dev, and add in the frequent studs up lunges, incessant whingeing and taking about 4 minutes for every throw in. And to top it all off, if he read this he would probably say it was racially motivated.
