GOODFELLAS helicopter morning, there.
Woke up white-wined by the biggest removals van I’ve ever seen that unsurprisingly got stuck in the street. Beeping it’s fucking head off…
Got up, went the shop, got back, started chopping stuff to marinate lamb, chopped me finger off, cleaned up associated blood, marinated the lamb…
Fitted shin pads to a small boy, remembered said small boy’s keeper gloves, flew like the wind to footy, no ref, reffed the first quarter of the game, forgot to start the stopwatch, blagged the replacement ref when he turned up that there was 10 minutes gone, game finished…
Ran to the car, drove the ground, missed the first 20 minutes, sweated like Steve Bruce’s balls in them black trackies, got in the ground, watched The Reds and fucking relax…
I mean, I missed the first 20 so anything could have happened. You rate that bit, or at least bear it in mind.
Might have soiled his kecks first 20 for all I know. Absolutely nothing to do aside from that.
Them cross-field balls he plays, la. Unreal. The one to Salah in the first half, pure ping. Should have squared the shot in the second half to Sadio for his hat trick, in fairness. Tremendous, that aside.
Big Joelly: 8
Quality again. Should have had a pen. Obviously. Of course he should have. Gave the referee a massive bollocking when we scored while everyone else was celebrating. Well in, lad.
Fucking Marriner. Fucking Marriner has made a career of not giving pens at Anfield, the stupid Andrew twat. Don’t get me started on them Heathrow fuckwits watching the game and not intervening.
That said, I had a go at reffing this morning, didn’t start the stopwatch. Point one of the handbook. Shite. How long’s gone, ref? I don’t fucking know lad, abar 15?
I don’t know. For the rest of the season let’s just assume that he has been the greatest defender you have ever seen as I can’t keep saying the same things every week. I’ll just comment by exception. Tremendous. That shot though, lad. High on the Degsy-At-Wembley-Ometer. Ludicrous.
Andy Robbo: 9
Was tremendous today. Creates the first just by pulling their lad out of shape, added the impetus that was missing from the midfield with Henderson not playing, the best player on the pitch for me aside from Firmino. He’s playing a different game this year.
Probably the perfect midfielder, isn’t he? Everything I wanted to be when I was playing but everything I wasn’t. Got a nose for danger, an eye for a ball. Perfect.
Pieced it together all day. Just asked Adam Melia what did Gini do? He said: “I think he was immaculate, which means, I have no idea.”
As ever, words of pure wisdom pouring out of his mouth.
Looks good when he gets it deep and drives from midfield, but at all the other bits of the footy, I thought he struggled. Looks like he might be trying a bit too hard to be good. Gave it away in some dodgy positions.
He’s so good for the first goal. The touch, the opening of his body, the finish. Absolute top bin. We were a bit shite when he wasn’t left wing in fairness, but that’s nothing really to do with him.
Not as good second half, trying to make it happen a bit too much. What a player, though.
There are three types of Divock performance as far as I can make out: 1) does nothing and is possibly shite but scores the absolute important winner; 2) does alright; 3) absolutely shite but goes off for Firmino and The Reds look instantly 50 per cent better. Today was a number three, and as such he’s getting an extra three points.
He’s just so much of a threat, isn’t he? His goal. That flick. That wasn’t him but it was a goal pretty much from the minute he picked it up and fed it to Bobby, we just didn’t know how. Great touch, great finish.
Unreal. The flick for Mo’s goal was disgusting. Have you seen it back? Jesus. The work for the first. The ball for the second. He is our best player I reckon, which is mad.
Filled space and that.
Looked good when he came on.

The Ox of The South is gonna have a moment. Forcing it a bit now, the little trier. But, like Keita, he’s gonna click and woe betide the League when they do.
Anyone going to argue that we aren’t the best team on the planet now? Realizing that we’ve got several players in the squad who haven’t even hit their stride?
Jamie Carragher suggests otherwise, apparently.
Are they deliberately trying to make VAR look bad so they can bin it
Absolutely clueless – whomever was running VAR
Mad that Salah is our third best attacker
No matter how many times people talk about Firmino, he’s still underrated. Boss ratings as usual, but he deserves a 10 there Ben.
Sometimes I think of him as similar to Michael Laudrup in Cruyff’s dream team. Stoichkov (Salah), Romario (Mane) and even Koeman (Virg) used to walk away with the headlines, but Laudrup was the real artist – the best footballer of them all. The same is true of Bobby. An absolute joy to watch.
Fucksake lads, login on here is is a fuckin minefield. Fuck all, absolutely fuck all, can be found, for example, where the fuck is the PMPint? You click on a piece…you get something else and often, the one you clicked is nowhere to be found. I usually just blimp the free offerings despite paying subs, I’ll probably just drop to the fiver a month until it’s sorted.
Fitzy, I’m so glad someone else has said this. I thought it was just me being thick. I think I’ll do the same. No offence, but at the moment I’m getting less than last year for double the price
Apologies mate, we’re making a few changes to the video player on the website which we’re hoping will be sorted by tomorrow, but in the meantime the best place to get all our content is on our mobile app.
Out of this fucking world! By far our best player for quite a while now, but still underrated by the rest of the world. Which is mad and maybe a good thing for us at the same time.
What a player!
Sadio would have been offside if Trent had squared it to him instead of shooting. Was gutted Robbo didn’t get the goal when he nearly did.
