Aguero out against villa so gives Villa more chance.

My nephew is a huge Liverpool fan, & when (as I hope) they fail, I'll put my hand on his shoulder & say in my serious face, sorry to hear about Liverpool mate...yes I'm that evil!



Now THAT'S what football's about!


Can ya post a little louder, TG? I can't hear you when you're way down in fifteenth place (in the second division)!!!

Is that what you mean about what football's about? big grin

Stupid fookin' Liverpool. Yer damn right you should be crying into your overpriced shirts.

I can't believe the love you boys have for Manchester City. You talk about a team that's so cynically put together and lacking in heart...oh wait, that would also apply to the top five finishing teams of the past twenty-plus years, wouldn't it?

Enough of this Premiership crap; can we at least address the World Cup and the Champions League--the glory of 1975 or 1999 included--now? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeesh. wink wink wink

No great love- or hate - for man city here. Indifference maybe.

So they saw off villa then?

Could be all over. Dont bank on hammers causing any major change.

Sunderlands Wickham-inspired rescue has been remarkable.

Don't worry Bill, I'm under no illusions the Hammers will go to Citeh and grab all the points!
I'm not even convinced Liverpool will bag all 3 at home to Newcastle on Sunday now, as the case for our defence is paper thin (just like our defence).
Still, it was a fun ride while it lasted. Seemed like old times! smile

Oh, Jim! If you'd got into football in the late 60s or early 70s you'd probably be a Leeds fan. And there are 57 league clubs (and hundreds of non-league clubs) who'd swap places with us...

I was at the alleged Stadium of Light last night to watch Sunderland vs WBA, with a client who's really a Newcastle fan but his accent is ambiguous enough to get away with it.

A pretty poor game, with plenty of evidence why these two teams are near the bottom. Got to say, I'm happy for Gus, as I have a lot of time for him. He can come back to Leeds as manager whenever he likes for my money.

They took off Whickham quite early in the second half, to bring on Altidore, who's one of the most entertaining players I've seen for ages. He'll barrel through two or three defenders with the ball bouncing around his feet, get clear on goal and then trip over the white line at the edge of the box. The Mackems seem very fond of him, even though his ability evaporates in front of goal.

And I don't think I've ever been as uncomfortable at a game as I was last night - the seats are about six inches wide! As a result, you have to sit at an angle just so you can get your arms in. And standing up in a hurry must be a chore even for a younger shorter chap.

Hie me back to Elland Road!

Congratulations to Sunderland on the great escape. Shame about Norwich, I don't think the board should have panicked & sacked the manager with five games to go, but with their end of season run-in I think they were doomed whatever. Just as well Newcastle had a lot of points in the bank, or it could have been a bit dodgy. And ManU out of Europe, great season!

Oh, Jim! If you'd got into football in the late 60s or early 70s you'd probably be a Leeds fan.

I know! Remember that it was me singing Ross McCormack's praises at mid-season when he was putting away all those goals for your side; and I'm still waiting for you to send me my Leeds United shirt. wink

By the way, I "get it" about world football. Yes, the trophies are great and everything--yes, they really are--but it's the supporter loyalty and undying passion and devotion for one's club of choice...though the trophies sure ARE nice!

Great title for a memoir, George Best's "Sod This, I'm Off to Marbella."

Liverpool Football Club reminds me of an old Ritz Cinema. You know, the one that used to show great movies with great stars, but ended up being turned into a Bingo hall, where old folks would sit talking about the good old days. Similar to Anfield today. The old codgers like Aldridge, Whelan and Dalglish remember when Liverpool staged big feature games, with huge stars winning footballing Oscars. But these days, it's as if they are sitting around gathering dust in their stadium/bingo hall seats, pining for yesteryear, dreaming of the past, while they hope for the bit of luck and excitement that will allow them to croak "Bingo!" for one more time.

Unfortunately, they are living out their lives following a team that, in the entire history of the Premier League, has won no more Premiership titles than the zero attained by the likes of Milton Keynes Dons, Torquay and Rotherham. Terribly sad.

Will Sunday's final game of the season allow one of those old codgers to call out "Bingo!" at last? Let's hope so. It's time they moved one small step ahead of fellow never-won-a-Premier-League-title teams like Brentford, Chester, Leyton Orient and Dulwich Hamlet. Come on Liverpool! At least manage to move up to Blackburn's level of one solitary Premiership title.

But if they fail, they have the excuses ready. Like having less money to spend than other teams. Of course, they don't mind having a ton more money than 90% of the teams in their division, like Crystal Palace, Norwich, West Ham, Southampton, Everton etc etc etc. I don't recall Rodgers saying any of his victories against less affluent sides should be put in perspective because his team has a lot more money than the opposition. No, he only mentions it when it suits him, like after losing at home to Chelsea's reserves which included a central defender who had never before started even one Premier League game in his life. Rodgers complained Chelsea slowed the game down, which is rather amusing, seeing that his own player Gerrard was in such a hurry, he fell over his own feet and gifted a goal to the opposition. Better for Liverpool if he had slowed down too. And again at Crystal Palace.

Liverpool supporters also never mention that in the long-gone days of plentiful League wins they had a huge financial advantage over everyone else because of their ownership by local football pools magnates, around the time Ritz Cinemas were at the height of their glory. Before that influx of riches, they were nobodies playing in the second division. Needless to say, they prefer to not recount that when recollecting their old League titles of the distant past. Maybe it's just old age?

Hey Basil, did you copy and paste that spiel from some Man Utd forum? Sounds to me like you have piss all idea what you're talking about.

Okay. Basil is a Man U fan and he aint taking things too well.
Did you forget all about Istanbul? BINGO!!!!
Also, football did not begin in 1990!
Get some perspective guy!

I know Liverpool pretty well. I've stood behind the net and watched Lawrence in goal, with Yeats and Lawler in front of him. And after half time and changing ends, I'd be watching Roger Hunt trying to score right in front of me. For someone who grew up watching Heighway, Toshack, Hughes, Smith, St. John and even the cumbersome Tony Hateley playing for Liverpool, the present day team, Suarez apart, is a collection of non-entities. Actually, Emlyn Hughes was still at Blackpool and yet to join Liverpool when I saw him the first time, so my Liverpool watching goes back quite a way. And watching them today is like only having John Debney to listen to after a lifetime listening to the excellence of Rozsa, Herrmann and Tiomkin. But some people will think Debney is just as good and be happy with what they get. And no, I don't support any Manchester team.

They're some of my earliest memories of collecting football cards in the late 60s. Wasn't Alec Lindsay part of that team as well? That's a name I haven't thought about in over 30 years, probably, yet mention of those 'pool players has not only brought his name to mind but his picture too.

Baz, welcome to the football thread. Hope you stay. We need more contributors here.

But seeing as only 4 teams are represented, we try not to attack each other too savagely

in fact most of us attack our own teams so savagely that we dont need anyone else to do it.

... And im goin to say that twice.

Movin on to tomros big game, i would expect citeh-west ham to go 2 ways.

A) A gradual 4 -0 thrashing incorporating dodgy defending and an easy double for aguero, with an individual run and goal from yaya toure where a dozen west ham players make half-hearted challenges and let him burst thru.

Or B) we surprise everyone by getting a cross in and an andy carroll headed goal. We then cruelly hang on til the 76th minute raising hopes across the country, then followed by A.

How can any team wiv james milner in it win the PremierLeague?!
