Re: EPL 20/21

Very impressed by Liverpool today (not sure how the penalty gainst us wasn't given), but considering the injuries we have, it was superb. Obviously they can't all start every gane but VVD, Gomez, TAA, Henderson, Thiago, Oxlaide-Chamberlain, Shaqiri and Salah all missing at once is not great. Could ...

Re: EPL 20/21

Mane's caught the diving bug. I think we need to decide, is this a contact sport or not? All forwards have to do is push and run into the defender, who realistically now has to just get out of the way. Clearly you didn't see the Spurs game again. Why don't you watch Kane and comment :shh: Either ad...

I see where your are coming from, but I think Spurs playing with 10 men most games, and the England captain sitting out half the season is not good for the game in general.

Re: EPL 20/21

I thought that was important then the last line, which I quoted, seems to supercede it? My only point is he ensures he gets the foul, but he is not cheating. No different from the likes of Kane who is loved and doesn't get a grilling on MOTD etc. It takes proper 'excessive force' to knock our 'Arry...

Back on topic, it seems like Awer's dream is becoming more of a nightmare, as they've lost bot games so far, 4 - 0 and 2 - 0, and failed to create one decent chance to score in both. But at least he's played 90 minutes of both matches so far. v Atalanta 11. Mabil Substituted for Vibeat 75' minutes ...

Re: Klopp hails Rashford

Can’t defend what players are paid because its indefensible but the EPL is a major contributor to the UK economy. Over 3 billion quid paid in taxes alone each year with players contributions over 1 £ billion of that. Rashford is on PAYE and his wages are public so shouldn’t be too difficult to work...

But VAR failed and didnt overturn the disallowed goal. If two players are standing in offside positions next to the keeper in the 6 yard box and they're not interfering ......... They were behind the GK when the ball was played in? And unless Kasper has eyes at the back of his head, they were not i...

Yes, just need someone to stand up in Australia and do it for the downtrodden children here.
