Neil Atkinson is joined by Paul Senior, Philippa Smallwood and Stuart Wright after Liverpool overcame David Moyes’ Sunderland by two historic goals to nil.
The Pink is The Anfield Wrap at its most full-throated whether joyous in victory or broken in defeat. The filth and the fury comes to the fore as those who have just been watching the Mighty Reds get themselves in front of a microphone and try to make sense of 90 minutes of sheer hell without their Isotonic Lucozade Sport.

Hi TAW, watched this at home and yes, Anthony Tailor was absolutely shocking. It wasn’t just the once he was in the way either, incompetent. Really appreciated this win, we seem just, so…relentless and the patience thing is a huge part of it. It does remind me a little bit of Fergie’s great, title winning sides in the machine like way we just keep going about our business. Jordan Henderson was immense today, as he’s been all season to be fair. :)
Hi all, another great pink, Not sure where Neil gets his energy from to do all the great broadcasting and writing he does, which I had some of it, he is in my humble opinion the best there is at the moment.
I just wanted to start a general debate about the crowd
I was not at the game but while listening and watching the highlights last night it was mentioned how quiet the crowed was.
Not for the first time Klopp had to come out of the dugout and wave at the crowd to get the atmosphere going, I may be wrong but he seemed genuinely anoyed during and after the game .
My rather laboured point is when the crowd is so riddled with tension how that transmits to the players
My bigger point is we have what I think is the best manager in the world who is the best fit, I read today Bayern Are seriously looking st him to take over and whilst I realise top managers will always get linked with other jobs I wonder if he feels a tad pissed of again he has got to get the crowd going when for most of the season we have seen some wonderful exhilarating football
Listening to the game I was riddled with tension as the game felt enormous but somehow some way we have to support and have faith this team will score and win weather in the 4th or 94th.
Easier said than done I know but Dourtmond found a way and feel we must do the same before this wonderfuly enigmatic man gets annoyed one to many times.
Our crowd especially is worth points, growing up Shanks Paisley and Kenny knew this better than anyone and used the crowd to our advantage, we must do the same however riddled with tension we are.
Thanks again to all involved
The referee was diabolical- when he was stood in Coutinho’s way I screamed at him so loud I felt demented. He shouldn’t be refereeing in the premier league. A formal complaint is needed. He is utter shit at his job.
