Sky have annoyed me already.

The usual cringeworthy’and it’s live’ from Martin Tyler seemed to be over prolonged, then instead of cutting to the usual quick ad, we get the bin dipper ensemble’s anthem.

Yep. I think that winds quite a few.

I like sourness, but the pre match, this is a proper stadium, for proper players bit grated too.

I admit I used to like my ventures there, despite the awful results, but since the development it’s suffered. And that famous atmosphere only appears at random, sporadic, usually televised moments.

I imagine Torben Piechnik & Djimi Traore are all misty eyed over being called proper players for the first time ever though

Liverpool second ruled out by VAR. Shame... :D

It's a bloody non contact sport for keepers.

Even though it was the mousers part of me wanted that goal to stand thinking back to the Manchester equaliser in our cup game '16 .

I'm not bitter :oops:

They don't have any creativity In midfield and without Rashford they're pretty toothless up top.

The law as I understand it is that you're not allowed to touch the goalkeeper if his feet are off the ground in his own 6 yard area

Manchester United are the definition of paying massive odds for average players like Maguire when they the suprior player in Smalling out on loan

De Gea is an absolute fraud and gets exposed unless you have a defensive manager like Mourinho, LVG, Simeone, part of the Premier League hype machine, give him a normal manager and he makes mistakes galore as shown last few seasons and for Spain

Liverpool look so drilled, it's hard to hate Klopp

Manchester United don't seem to have a forward player above 5 ft 9 or anyone remotely who can hold the ball up, it's so one dimensional

Leicester had to run out of luck at some time, when the likes Of Incheacho is scoring reasonably often, something had to give, Pope was superb and should be England keeper

Well I never. Souness just changed my mind on foul on goalie.

"it's hard to hate Klopp"

Not at all, in fact he makes it quite easy to really hate him.

I called it before it happened. Watching the game with my youngest son and I said that they wouldn't cut to the advert like they normally do. Not the 1st time it's happened either, seems to be a regular thing when Liverpool are home. Sky's bias towards that club knows no bounds. The day they win the title is going to be unbearable.
