>>>>>>>during these leaner times for a LFC fan>>>>>>>>>

If my memory is correct, Liverpool have won virtually EVERY cup over the past 12 years, apart from the League title!!
That's a European Cup (or Champions League), UEFA Cup, 2 FA Cups and 2 or 3 League Cups!!!
That's more than most clubs in their HISTORY!!!!!
It must be VERY tough being a Liverpool fan??
Maybe you should try supporting Tranmere!! wink

Week Five September 20-22, 2013

West Ham 2 Everton 3- Leighton Baines strikes twice to give Everton the lead after trailing 1-0 but it's Lukaku who nets the winner as the Hammers fall at home. Sorry, Bill.

Liverpool 0 Southampton 1- Liverpool looked flat for most of the second half and nearly gave the game away in the 47th minute on some errant passing in their area. In fact, there was errant passing all game from the Reds as they suffer their first loss of the season to last year's new boys, Southampton. I watched this match and was surprised by how quiet the home supporters were. I guess Kev and Thomas weren't in attendance. wink

Tomorrow's the big Manchester derby as United visit the Ethiad to face City.

English Championship

Leeds United 1 Burnley 2- Leeds avoided the clean sheet by scoring in the 79th minute. TG will no doubt add his thoughts on this match.

To be fair, the two Baines free kicks were brilliant. There's not much you can do when the ball caroms off the post like it did on that second one.

that maybe so jim but ten mins of extended "highlights" on game of the day watching maiga lose the ball every touch he had waz enough for me. i cdnt watch anymore. He was murdering us. ball went forward, he was cocking it up or falling on his arse and it was coming straight back. He wasnt the only one.

and its a slump of their own making. in two weeks time when we are in relegation zone people will see it is a real problem.

Arsenal should grab three points when Stoke visits the Emirates today and Manchester City should beat United at the Ethiad. "Arab Autumn", baby! wink

Just reading about Nottingham Forest FC and the Brian Clough era. While he was sacked after only 44 days at TG's Leeds, Clough went on to manage NF for eighteen glorious years and cleaned up the trophies in England and Europe. Chemistry and timing are everything, I guess.

Your lot let me down yesterday Bill !!
I was hoping you'd do the Blues, but they're nothing if not resilient (and the only unbeaten side in the Prem now).
Our boys got a nice wake-up call yesterday. That should dampen expectations for anyone who thought we were gonna rock the Prem this season. Playing 4 defenders at home to Soton didn't help things. Old Brendan needs to think things through better next time.

Notts Forest were pretty solid in the late 70's and early 80's Jim. They became Liverpool's main rivals for winning things. They bagged a few League titles and European Cups (was it two they won?). Now, like Leeds, they're trying their hardest to get back amongst the big boys.

If you insist...

Leeds continued their policy of allowing the other team to score first. Unfortunately they scored second as well.

Not great preparation for their trip to Newcastle on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup, a game that I will be attending with a good client of mine. He's got us two tickets in the posh seats near the directors' box, I'm buying dinner beforehand, probably Chinese.

Last time I was in that area of the ground, I noticed that many of the seats had the names of the debenture holders stencilled on them. Two of the seats belonged to Ant and Dec. I hope I'm right in front of them - the little beggars won't see a thing!

He was the wrong appointment at the wrong time. He hated Leeds and he hated Don Revie's methods (which interestingly now all top managers employ, 40 years later), and appointing him was a stupid mistake by the club's directors. The original plan was to appoint Johnny Giles, but it was felt that it would put Billy Bremner's nose out of joint so they looked beyond the boot room.

Jim, for an almost completely fictional re-imagining of the 44 days, see a film called "The Damned United". About as based on real events as "The Ten Commandments".

By the way, I get most of my football news from the Beeb website. Any other recommendations?


Oh yes - www.thesquareball.net

All the news that matters and a spot of satire. Thoroughly impartial to boot.


Thankfully, the Sky Sports website has all the English Championship highlights so I can add an extra layer of in-depth insight to my weekly OCD review. smile

A win for the hammers in the pointless capital cup! Typical - 3 goals when we cant buy a goal.
Would rather league points or have those goals spread over the next 2 league games!! ha ha. Am off football.

Leeds tonight then?

And the Phelps Ewanited v Kev/Thomas biters in the match of the round!?

Arsenal could start that great goalscoring legend in his own lunchbreak Niclas Bendtner!
Useless fat lump will probably score a hatrick now Ive said that. And earn a shock loan deal to the Hammers!

Went down 2 - 0 to the Mags. Nothing to be ashamed of, though - there weren't really two goals in it, and Ross McC hit the bar with a sublime chip in the first few minutes which could have put a quite different slant on the game. And a stone-cold penalty appeal turned down at 1 - 0.

The best part of the night, though, was how 6,000 travelling Leeds fans completely eclipsed 30,000 home fans. They never shut up for the whole game. Part of this was, as BBC laconically puts it:

There was a poignant moment in the first half as both sets of supporters united to pay tribute to ex-Leeds and Newcastle midfielder Gary Speed, who died aged 42 in November 2011. Fans chanted his name from the 11th minute to mark the shirt number he wore for each club.

In fact, the Leeds fans were chanting his name for a good 15 minutes in total, and the Newcastle fans only joined in when they realised what the song was.

One minor disappointment was that the electronic advertising hoardings around the pitch were in French! Most of the Newcastle team are of that bent, and we were joking that Newcaslte manager Alan Pardew should actually change his name to Gerard D. Pardew.

Anyhoo, a good night out with a great client/friend in a much-liked city, a Chinese/Indian buffet beforehand (yes, there are such places) and an entertaining game, if not a good result.

I almost didn't post that Bobby Moore picture because I was still reeling over the fact that he played for Fulham in that '75 final but then I couldn't very well omit him from a Bill Carson testimonial, could I?
