QPR vs Liverpool was exactly the same kind of bananas as much of last season. Hopeless defending, clinical finishing. While it is true that QPR bagged a pair of own goals it’s common knowledge that these things […]
P7 W3 D1 L3 GF10 GA10 GD0 Pts:10. 1 clean sheet in the last 15 (all competitions).
Not the stuff of legend.
Another terrible season following a second place finish in the league was definitely not what Liverpool supporters were hoping for, but this start makes it seem like history is repeating itself. Again.
But is it? What has…[Read more]
And as reward for his inept display, missing 2 red cards and 2-3 penalties, Webb then took charge of the Spurs game at Old Trafford. Quality from PGMOL. Makes the Spurs win all the better. Yet all the FA do is […]
This will not focus on solely the 2013 calendar year, as New Year’s Day 2013 fell in the middle of last season’s match week 20, leaving some clubs to play only 37 league games in 2013. Instead I’ll look at […]
I’m happy for Rodgers to start Toure(RCB) and Sakho(LCB) each game. I think that our ‘system’ (assuming we still intend to play the same system as last season, though the evidence from this season suggests […]
If he wasn’t captain, and if we had someone in the side capable of being a captain (I’m not convinced we do), Gerrard would sit the bench for a month after his performances in the last two games. It hasn’t helped […]
Not sure if you’ve seen the replays of the Williams challenge, but it’s pretty clear he goes for the ball, sees he won’t get it, and then kicks out at Coutinho. That’s a red card, and frankly I’m surprised we’re […]
Hey EotF. Last season we were something of a flat track bully, losing only 3 fixtures against the bottom half all season (4 if we count the loss at Stoke when they were in the top 10 because they didn’t finish […]
Liverpool approaches another landmark game this weekend; one that I feel will define the first part of the first half of the season. And no, it is not likely to be a blood-and-thunder affair the likes of the […]
How important is winning all your opening fixtures of the new season? After all, in the 08/09 season, Manchester United started D-W-L-D, but went on to win the title. It turns out that the top clubs regularly […]
Brilliant post, EotF. I’m also completely made up with the purchases of Sakho and Mignolet. Even if we’d signed no one else those two were what we were desperately short of. Cissokho picked up an unfortunate […]
The new football season opens and the transfer window shuts, and now it’s all down to the football finally, at least until January when everyone once again goes crazy over unrealistic marquee signings or […]
Mate, if the champions finish below the team that finished 8th then 7th the last two seasons you would all be crying in the streets. So far Moyes at United has been nothing impressive at all. Fellaini for 4m […]
On the contrary, Sturridge is on side when Agger heads it, and one cannot be offside when a corner or throw in is taken even when the ball comes directly to you. Goal is 100% legal. My only question is why […]
Dear Mr. Gill, and members of the FA board,
While this may come as something of a surprise, we at Liverpool FC find ourselves indebted to you for your actions concerning Mr. Suarez last season. We had a […]
Déjà vu? Lots of possession, some scintillating moments on the ball, woodwork figures on the rise, opposition ‘keeper good enough for man of the match, and a blunder at the death by a central defender to […]
The reason I don’t put Arsenal in the top tier is that they are not capable of actually winning anything, just like Spurs, Everton and Liverpool. They are the best of those four clubs certainly, primarily because […]
Great post, EotF. Quite without being biased, I haven’t believed the Premier League is the best in Europe since Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions’ League.
Arsenal, despite their finals […]
The leap from 4th to 1st is greater than that from 7th to 4th, even though it’s still “just” 3 places. In the Premier League the “top” 3 clubs, namely Manchester United, City and Chelsea, find […]
Thanks for your thoughts, Rafarendum. In South Africa our primary social problem is what some call “entitlement”. Due to the leftovers of the apartheid regime (which ended two decades ago now, as people are wont […]
