I am rewatching the Sky highlights. What the actual fuck are they doing with the crowd sound?

Interestingly in his Post match conference Pep just laughed off the idea of pressure saying him and the players are in highly privileged positions and pressure is something people in far worse off conditions feel. He then said we try our hardest for the league and if we win, then great, and if we don’t we try our hardest next year.

Outwardly he looks cool as a cucumber, compare and contrast with the antics of a Klopp at the final whistle yesterday and in his interview after the game

Yep very annoying it was too. 2 up at half time and 3 gilt edged chances in the 2nd and then the ref made 2 massivce decisions , one at each end.The free kick for Chelsea just wasnt right and the deflected shot goes in and then at the other end Stanway appeared to be blatantly tripped and no pen

Hi Doug. Are you suggesting that the officiating was a little one sided?

He's wank. Noticed his lickers have been quiet since around November

He never started an EPL game this year. Wonder what happend.

Cant wait until we get rid, even if its at a major loss. Worst signing we've had in the Pep era by far. Worse than Nolito.
He's a complete waste of space and a one-trick pony.


I backed him to do well, and have never gone into hiding. He did for us for a period until his dip.

Can he adapt? We shall see. I think you're all being a bit harsh, but he has to improve.

Yep. An absolutely astonishing performance by the greatest team that has ever graced the Premier League.

Even if we don't win the league (which I think we will), few would argue that the Dippers are a better side. Sometimes the table can lie.

He's not had a good season but personally I rate him very highly and I think he has some brilliant MCFC performances ahead of him

That was a surreal opening, I can't remember the last time a team came here and controlled the ball as Chelsea did for the first 2mins and then for us to switch it on like we did was simply breath taking. those next 20mins gave me a better high than my pre-match dooby!

The 15mins that followed the 4th were a tad frustrating, and I felt Chelsea looked the better team in that period because, which didn't help with our surprisingly shit ball retention in that period. Thankfully normal service resumed and we got a solid second half. Good atmosphere again today.

Brilliant 7 days for us and we're starting to look like the machine of last season. Obliterating the GD in the manner we did today must be very disheartening for the Scousers.

Not really. Just that late in the game those 2 situations happened and we were on the wrong end of both. We have had to get used to it with the men and the poor standard of reffing and this was just a couple that stopped us winning this game. Overall the ref was just average

When he was in the corner with the ball and he was dispossessed he barely gave 2 shits to try and get the ball back , that's what I have noticed about this player , hes a fuckign lightweight pussy with no desire to even attempt a 50/50 challenge.

He wont get injured by going in for a tackle...........ever.
