  1. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Don’t forget that they’ll still give you the odd incorrect decision in your favour, such as the extra time penalty, to make the anti-Chelsea conspiracy less obvious.
  2. Media / Press

    I think it’s probably more football fans in general. This forum is full of talk how the FA/UEFA/world/media is against Chelsea, which from my point of view I just don’t see. You got a ridiculous equaliser given for you last week, which no doubt would’ve received “they’d never give Chelsea that” comments had it been against you. With Neville (and I agree he’s clearly he best pundit), you’ll see him give Liverpool credit for a win and view that as being “pro-Liverpool”, whereas I just see that as giving deserved praise. I’ll see him tweet laughing about Liverpool losing Champions League finals or hear him saying how he couldn’t stand Liverpool winning the league, and view that as “anti-Liverpool” (not to mention the history of what happened when he played against us). Whereas you’d see it, agree with it, and forget about it. I know Utd fans who think the world is always against them, and any punishment they receive is purely because they’re Utd, whereas I’d probably ignore that because I’ve always seen them as receiving favourable treatment. No doubt if they finish fourth, they’ll get more praise than anyone finishing second or third. Etc etc etc

    Is that genuinely your perception of Martin Tyler? He’s known by Liverpool fans as almost as anti-Liverpool as Gary Neville.

    In what sense? By having far superior points per game and win %?
  5. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    The two paragraphs are unrelated - the first is because I hear everywhere Klopp HAS to win a trophy or else, but I'm yet to here what then happens. Second is that we received stick for losing in the FA Cup, but if he wins a domestic cup, nobody will care and the "hasn't won a trophy" shout just changes to "hasn't won a meaningful trophy". I personally think we'll finish second with about 96 points. Hopefully he'll then get sacked for not winning a trophy and we can get a new manager in, who can take us back to finishing 6th and 7th and getting knocked out of the Europa League in February, which was pretty much the norm for the six years prior. I know, after only getting one penalty at Anfield in 2017/18, I think the refs have decided Liverpool need to be given a lot more, which is why we've had one more penalties than Chelsea this season, and almost as many as Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

    What will happen if Liverpool finish 2nd? I very much doubt nobody has noticed Klopp hasn't won a trophy, because it's one of the most used phrases in the media. But I'm sure if Liverpool finished 6th and won the League Cup it'd all be fine and nobody would say "Klopp's only won the League Cup".
  7. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I’m not too bothered he did it, happens very often when a team wants to disrupt the last minutes to get a result. I simply highlighted that the reason the game was played for that period of time was because their player stayed down doing that, rather than the ref keeping the game going “until Liverpool scored”. Just a bit OCD about inaccuracy. I assume this was posted the second the goal went in, as he preceded to mention every fifteen minutes how the first goal was offside, and throw in how one of the goals was an own goal, like they don’t really count. I am surprised you would view Tyler as pro-Liverpool, as I’ve always known him as being completely the opposite.

    Probably something to do with Gueye sitting down time wasting for over two minutes during injury time pretending to be hurt. Credit has to go to the linesman for making the correct call, cleared up on replay.

    The Heysel memorial at Anfield will remain where it is on the Centenary Stand. The development of the ground only involves the Main Stand and Anfield Road. If you'd like to read more you can find the link on the official club home page alongside the Hillsborough link a bit further down the page.
  10. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Where did you hear that? I don't really see what the point in that would be - especially considering there isn't anything to applaud. In general, the findings are more concerning than something to applaud.
  11. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Credit where it's due - Utd somehow are top of the league, controlling the game away to City, and the majority of their team is pretty average. On paper City should have strolled this title race.
  12. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    They're German. With the final being in Munich, it'd be very much like a home game for Bayern, whereas Real have a shocking record in Munich. I think Bayern would be the tougher game.
  13. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    So you're suggesting that a caretaker manager who has been in for 2 weeks has been put incharge of the clubs future transfer policy? If you don't think Comolli is doing any of these things that is what his actual job description is, enlighten me as to what he was there for. Should have left earlier if he didn't actually do any work. Yes, implementing a plan that has been successful for you the similar field. Quite a sensible idea really. Quite the opposite. You only need to look at the standard of the top English teams now in Europe compared to say 5 years ago. It was standard that there was 3 English teams in the semi-finals of the Champions League with the other failing to get there due to being beaten by another English team in the quarters. It'd be easier to win the league now with a good team than playing against the sides from a few years ago (Utd with Ronaldo etc). Think he's a good manager because of everything of what I said, not to mention breaking the Barca/Real monopoly and winning 2 league titles in 3 seasons at Valencia. Ah yes, a shot as its more commonly known. I'm pretty sure he was trying to score that one.
  14. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Well I guess if the Director of Football isn't actually incharge of seeing through the transfers as some people are suggesting, good job he's gone as there isn't anything else he would be doing. I don't think, and I'd hate to, that the manager wouldn't have had a say in the summer signings. I've no doubt he did. The January ones I wouldn't have thought so. You don't give someone a temporary position and then ask who he wants to spend 50million on. I'm pretty sure the Carroll signing is someone Comolli would have had his eye on and then just panic bought as they wouldn't want to have lost one of their key players a few months after taking over with no immediate replacement. Regarding the buying policy, the way FSG made their baseball team so successful was by looking at the stats of all the players, and buying them off that, opposed to players who 'appear' to be the best. Probably why they've signed the recent ones, a lot where player of the season for their teams last season, or for example, Downing gets the most crosses in etc, Henderson covers more ground than most etc. So that seems the blueprint they followed as its what has worked for them. Results wise (win percentage etc) Benitez has the second best of any Liverpool manager ever. I think its easier to have a go at someone if you aren't really connected to the club "oh Benitez didn't win the league he's useless" but as I remember how bad we were when he took over, when I had never really contemplated us ever playing a Champions League semi-final, for example, to being regulars in the last 4 of the CL, winning it, being top of the UEFA rankings at one point and twice breaking our Premier League points total. Since he's gone its now back to the initial "I can't really ever see that happening stage". So yes I'd gladly have him back.
  15. Spot on. Get, say, 3 years pay for half a seasons work doesn't sound too shabby! Certainly makes you think twice about the "why would you want to manage Chelsea you get no time" thing.
