Absolutely horrible fixture. No good comes of it.
I can list the wins on one hand I think for the majority of my adult life. I would need an hour to list the woes. The fucking last-minute defeats. The man getting sent before a pasting, the centre halves with fucking big overbites twatting then in the top bin for a laugh. The endless shite refs. That fucking Ferguson smile.
The leading 1-0 in the cup and them equalising and my auld fella trying to kick our gas fire’s head in. The leading 1-0 in the cup and them equalising and then scoring the winner two minutes later and my auld fella moving it up a stage to trying to kick the patio door in like he was trying to escape bedlam.
The routine defeats. The losing by a goal with 10 to go and not even getting a shot off. The Rodgers last season one where Skrtel should have twatted Martial instead of backing off, laying his shirt in a puddle for him to Waltz it into the bottom corner. The Martin Tyler is that excited he is commentating in a shirt, tie and just his undies ones.
That was nearly getting added to the desperate wound pile. It’s name was the VAR one. Nonsense.
The Reds were dogshite against a really shite side. Like Allardyce’s Bolton.
Had nothing to do. Passed it well, couldn’t really do much for their goal. I mean I don’t want to go on about it but you know, this robot shit is a nonsense. He boots him in the calf.
Family Fortunes style, if we asked a hundred people if he booted him in the calf, you are getting a top answer of at least 87. Seven said no, the other six were demented or off their chops.
Was desperate. Couldn’t pass it five yards. Kept lashing it in the box, kept giving it away.
New five-year contract, one of the clauses was to be dogshite. Couldn’t pass it five yards. Gets made a show of for their goal. It’s great movement but fucking hell.
Shite. Couldn’t pass it five yards. First time ever I would have liked to have given him a fucking crack at half time. Maybe rubbed chilli on his face to wake him the fuck up.
Was just as desperate as Trent except he sets the winner up. Awful like the rest of them. Kept going, that’s the only positive.
Was shite. Couldn’t get in the game. Couldn’t pass it forward. Couldn’t defend. Was rightly dragged. It was a toss up between him and Firmino mind you, in a race to the bottom.
Was absolutely ghosting his head off, Derek Acorah style until the last 10 minutes. Maybe that was because he had some legs, movement around him, but even still. Couldn’t pass it five yards.
The only one who wanted to play first half. Every other cunt was taking the easy option, Gini was trying to roll his man, get The Reds going. On his own.
Unlucky for the handball, but ultimately shite. Much less than the sum of his parts when one of them three wonderful fuckers is missing.
Couldn’t get in it. Probably because our full backs kept twatting it at Maguire’s forcefield head instead of trying to pass the cunt. Should do better with the chance first half.
He’s great when he comes on with space in front of him and tired legs all around him. Is shite in every other turn of events. That said, he should have had a foul there, fucking Atkinson, the new David Ellery.
Came on, did alright, I called him every cunt under the sun, scored the equaliser. Better than Dalglish.
Got The Reds playing. Passed it forwards. Considered his pass, didn’t just do the obvious. Needs to start playing.
Got The Reds going forward. As opposed to kicking it away from their goal.

Credit to Benno for giving VVD a low score. He was just as horrendous as the rest. Kept heading the ball to the opponent. Mad.
Also Trent makes a great run into the box right at the end but Ox fluffs the overhead pass. That was infuriating.
Naby did indeed well. He needs to step up in games now. He has too much quality not to.
Liverpool did not deserve more than a point but that was the worst refereeing performance I have seen in ages. Atkinson gave them everything he possibly could and Liverpool nothing. As for VAR – what’s the point of it. At least in cricket they over-rule the umpire when needs be. Nothing to do with clear and obvious.
TwAtkinson always manages to cheat us every time he officiates us. We must speak out about him.
Those opening paragraphs were awesome, I remembered every one of those godawful games.
Thank you for making me laugh after a fairly shit 6 hours. And u are right about Keita playing.
I agree that clearly, Reds were not at their best today; missing Salah hurt and perhaps the international break once more; just killed some of the momentum but all the same, the fluency just wasn’t there.
The biggest point of this game however, was how incredibly poor Atkinson was. He was essentially United’s 12th man. ManU’s only goal came out of possession they should have never had. Disgraceful decision by the official to it have immediately blown his whistle after such an obvious foul by Lindeloff on Origi
TwAtkinson was a disgrace again yesterday. That was a completely biased performance. He should have just donned a Man Utd kit and had done with it. In fact I am surprised he didn’t pop up late to grab a Utd winner.
You watch Henderson being completely ineffective, completely shite adding almost fuck all yet Naby sits and watches. Naby has so much quality. Just watch our goal, the simple pass is straight on to Robbo, but he draws the defender inside then gives it, perfectly weighted givingRobbo time on the ball. He has to have run now.
The Reds are top of the League. The Reds are undefeated. The Reds are Champions of Europe.
Bin that negativity before we start acting like the tossers we despise from other clubs. YNWA
And can we bin VAR and TwAtkinson while we are at it?
I watch nearly all Liverpool games in a season. I avoided this one. Nothing good can come from looking at old Trafford, it’s nauseating.
And especially when TwAtkinson is allowed to officiate it. They may have well of just got Fergie to ref it, or even Pep.
This is how I feel, but I found myself watching despite that. Why? I could have spent that two hours setting fire to my beard or drinking warm pints of battery acid.
Thought Chamberlain deserved a 7 at least there. Noticeable positive difference once he was on the pitch.
Found holes, played on the turn and was direct, almost scored too. Terrible pass the last minute though when the man would’ve been through on goal (can’t remember who), only downer there for me.
