    Premier League 2021-22

    Iím one of many a generation of Liverpool fans in my family, took my lad to get his new kit from Anfield recently along with his grandad. Picture of them both in front of the shankly statue will soon be added to to champions wall mosaic. For most people you donít get to choose, you are just kind of born into it.

    I have a mate who is a toffee, his dad calls him up post match and often says ĎIím sorry I got you into this soníí!

    A good signing and looking forward to seeing him in the PL each week.

    I watched the mighty Blues v Huddersfield the other night. After a bit of Googling I found that it was being shown by a Portuguese sports channel which I managed to find. The commentary was like something from the Fast Show, prattle, prattle, prattle: Jordon Pickford. Prattle, prattle, prattle: Sheffield Wednesday - and so it went on. I wanted the commentator to say scorchio.

    Seems like Manyoo have increased their attacking threat with a quick dip into the transfer market today... some old bloke from italy, I hear..... Now if they go out and get Nivez, Ndidi or Nevez to firm op the defensive midfield then they will have the best chance in years.

    Who gets dropped? Thought Man United were pretty well provided for ďforwardsĒ.

    I would think that Martial will be offloaded and I certainly wouldn't be sorry to see him go he will probably benefit from a move
    I'm just glad Ronaldo isn't going to be wearing a blue shirt it just wouldn't look right 😳

    City are doing to the Arsenal what my team CFC should have done last week but must add as a born and bred North Londoner what is happening at the Arsenal is in its way quite sad but at least i suppose the W Brom game was a warm up for next season

    I believe Mendy was on a free due to circumstances.

    Discovered NBCSN an American channel who show all the 3 oíclock kick offs live. Iím watching Brighton v Everton. Superb quality. Iím guessing it is a UK production for export to the US. British commentators and pundits etc.

    0-1 at half time - come on Everton.

    Chelsea looking good, we dropped two points yesterday but a long way to go yet.

    As a Chelsea fan I agree with you, we dropped two points.

    Donít get too ahead of yourselves. The Liverpool midfield that played it was their first start this season, Virgil and Matip both back from long term injuries, Robbo has barely played. I agree you will be in the mix for sure, but City are still the team to beat and United will definitely be in and around it too. Should be a good season this one and I think injuries to key players will help to decide where it goes.

    I think anyone who finishes above Chelsea this season will be Champions. Tuchel has done an amazing job in a short time.
    Much as I think Grealish will get even better under Pep I donít see City winning title.

    Sorry but as a fellow supporter we ground out a draw ,we got a IMO lucky header they got a pen but i thought the red was harsh and we managed to defend the second half.
    I thought Lakaku was the pits and ( i hope i am wrong) will continue like this the board thought they have bought a Derby winner but got a cart horse.
    The Manchester clubs say thank you.

    Eh ?
    Chelsea were the better team up until Alty Taylor evened things up . Liverpool had a good twenty minutes after half time but once this period was up, Chelsea were comfortable. I agree completely about Lukaku. He will score lots of goals but he just doesnít seem a top level striker.
    I canít understand why Klopp doesnít play Thiago more . Heís a step up from what was on display yesterday .
    Shaping up already to be a memorable season . I agree with sevvy, I donít think City will win it this year . There or thereabouts but I believe itíll be between Chelsea and the Trafford Rangers /PIGMOL alliance .

    Dear Mike Riley,

    Re your 'soft touch' instructions to your cohort re applying the Laws (sorry, that's so 20th century; it's 'game management' now, isn't it?: one thing has become apparent this early in the season, your referees are now displaying never-before-seen levels of inconsistency when what's actually needed is consistency. I accept that the referee requires to apply a mix of subjectivity & objectivity when performing his role. However, it appears that subjectivity has become paramount.

    When can we expect the u-turn, because you're compromising the integrity of the game, player safety & even results as your minions make it up on the fly?

    Yours in football,

    Jim.

    On the flip side Iíd say Liverpool were completely comfortable for the first half. Apart from the goal Chelsea created very little, it was Liverpool with all the chances first half.

    Chelsea look a solid unit though, but as you say Lukaku isnít a top level striker, they should have went for Haaland.

    Thiago hasnít really got going at all for us, heís been fairly anonymous in the games he has played for us, hope he comes good but I canít see him doing it for us.

    Eh? Did Mendy actually need to make a save up until the penalty? If thatís Liverpool being comfortable youíre welcome to it.

    If it had been allowed to be 11 v 11 I think you may well have been on the end of a proper good hiding. That myopic tw@t Taylor put pay to that quite nicely.

    Right because of the red I see youíve lost touch with actually happened in the first half.

    Alisson didnít make a save in the first half either. Chelsea in fact had only 2 shots on target in the whole game and one was the goal.

    In the first half Liverpool had more possession, more attacks and more shots than Chelsea.

    So yes Iíd say we were comfortable.

    What I thought was absolutely shocking was that, from what was shown on MOTD, the referee walked towards the screen which appeared to have been paused showing an incriminating still image. He then spins round having made his decision points to the spot and grabs his red card. A red card + penalty (at 1-0 to the other side) decision surely merits a review of actual video footage and the potentially important few seconds before the ball hits whoever it was’s arm.

    Maybe MOTD edited out the bit where that happened? Did anyone see it live?

    I have never ever seen such a quick and cursory VAR decision.

    He was definitely watching a moving image when he went to the screen . The still image was the Sky one immediately afterwards. You could see why it looked confusing . He didnít hesitate to give it though. Normally youíd expect him to take at least a couple of views. I think Alty Taylor has previous with Chelsea though . Heís definitely one of the most abject referees ever to grace the pitch . Heís either corrupt or completely incompetent. The problem being that it isnít easy to tell which.
    Aligned himself to the Cheshire FA so he could officiate City and United games . Comes from a family of obsessed United fans and of course he supports Altrincham !!!

    He was always good value for a booking .
    Had a run of four games when he got a yellow in every one . Not good enough for Liverpool, Iíd imagine Norwich will be an unenviable task for him .

    He was generally well rated by Liverpool fansÖ. Had a shocker v Leicester thoughÖ. A good signing for Norwich

    Would prefer him to Vestergaard I think

    Must have been an edit issue. If you see MOTD at about 19í45Ē, it appears heís hardly looked at it!

    I think Odegaard is confusing the Champions League with the Championship. Winning the Championship within 2 years may be possible, but the champions league ........... someone needs to give that man a drugs test.

    Sure , it was a gentle tug at our poorer neighbours .
    Iíve said before that I donít think City will defend it . I think itíll be between Chelsea and United with City being the best of a bad bunch following up .
    Looking at todayís game , with Kane or another goal machine , we beat Leicester by four or five . Leicester , the FA Cup winners and top four candidates away from home .
    I think Pep will consolidate with the kids from the U23 s fir a year or two .
