sure, be professional, but playing for a 0-0 when you have nothing to gain from it?? that's f*cking criminal.


That's the issue I have. Leicester haven't played with 11 men behind the ball since Rogers took over and then against us suddenly they did. Scum.


Get what you're saying but also think it's fair to argue that he would've done that regardless of the context.


They didn't do the same thing in Klanfield when it ended 1-1. But again, at that time was Puel not Rodgers.


Perhaps because they think they can go toe to toe with Liverpool, that will change next season, Liverpool better hope they get that creative midfielder they want and that he hits the ground running, as more teams will do what they do to us and park the bus.

Agreed. And it will be a miracle if their best players stay fit all season again!

Brighton owners obviously have crazy expectations.

I have no issue with teams trying to get points of us anyway they can. I remember how we ridiculed Ferguson when he complained about West Ham trying against the rags in the last game.

I am hoping that VAR will stem the tide of off side goals (another yesterday), diving and cheating. IF by miracle VAR is fair, then that must be -15 points for the vermin.

Yep should be a lot tougher for Liverpool next season.
VAR, injuries, freak last minute goals, one style of play, no Plan B, over reliance on the three forwards...
PL are probably brain storming on how to resolve this issue.
VAR will probably be the first target, expect limited replays and very few viewpoints for Liverpool matches

Id bet Man City will be the first club to save a penalty only for it to be retaken due to the GK moving an inch before the ball is kicked.

100% it will happen to us.

There are far too many owners in the Championship who do not have a clue how to run their clubs. That's West Brom, Brum & now Forest in recent times who have sacked managers who looked like they could achieve success - arguably at Forest who also had Keane. Sad for the clubs' fans but does illustrate how lucky we are & continue to be with owners that are in for the long haul with a plan

He had. He was there for 19 games. One of the poorest run clubs in the football league, which is saying something

That club is really mental. Sacking Karanka and bringing Martin.
Sad, really sad.

LE: Saw that Lamouchi was already announced. Weird one. Also, what the fuck happend with O'Neill? Late 90s, early 00s he was a really desired manager. Same with O'Leary.

I think you are right. I recalled that he took a break at some point because his wife was ill, but looked now, that wasen't the case.
Forgot that he was 5 years at Villa. Incredible.

Also he hooked up with Roy Keane, which was never going to be a good move.
