How can a side with so much going for it be so dull to watch? Credit to Chelsea for winning and being top of the league and all that, but they're every bit as stodgy and conservative as George Graham's Arsenal were back in the day.


Fitting analogy considering it takes a few grams of cocaine, a bottle of whiskey and a brown envelope filled with cash to enjoy a Moronho master class.


I probably should have seen it coming when they started a 37-year-old as a lone striker, but I honestly expected a bit of a ding-dong from the game. Seeing a team that half way through the season were being touted as one of the very best of the Premier League era now almost apologetically limping towards the title is odd and disappointing.

So I guess after the 0-0 at home, our Europa League adventures will soon be over. Sigh.

Desperately hoping that he doesn't end up at Anfield, I'd really rather avoid the barrage of hideous Kop/Klopp puns that would surely ensue. :yuckky:

Villa to the Cup Final. Another Benteke goal.

Stevie G largely anonymous in his final FA cup appearance.

So no birthday FA Cup final appearance for Gerrard after all. Someone at Liverpool will have to organise some gift vouchers or perhaps a gold watch for him instead. He and Allen were quite simply overpowered and outclassed by Delph and Grealish in the midfield.

I like football and soccer. I enrolled my 2 young daughters in soccer class and they are doing good.  They were already joined the competition last summer.

Ronaldo passing to a teammate in the penalty box, I've seen it all now. :o

Well, our European adventure was nice whilst it lasted.

Back to reality.

Commiserations, Hervé. Young Oulare looks a real prospect, another Belgian with an incredible future.
 
The recent disdain shown for the Europa League by Mauricio Pochettino annoyed me on so many levels. Fiorentina, Napoli and Sevilla are in similar domestic situations, but the likes of Liverpool and Spurs have the resources to invest in a stronger squad than any of them. I'd rather spend my European nights competing in the Europa than getting barbecued in the Champions League group stages.

Yeah, I fear we might already lose him this Summer, though Oulare himself has expressed the desire to stay at least one more season. *fingers crossed*

I don't mean to alarm anyone, but we appeared to be playing actual football at times today. A hard-fought point that could easily have been all three. Results elsewhere didn't exactly go according to plan, but we've no control over that. It's all about what we do in these next two home games. Beat Leicester and it's right back in our hands, as long as we're still within touching distance by then.
