He's another Ballotelli, innit. Fergie would have offloaded him aeons ago. Liverpool's recent success is built around a whole-team ethos. No-one is irreplaceable but everyone is invaluable. Man U have got to get away from pinning their hopes on one or two (Bruno, for example). Spurs are currently making the same mistake with Son and Kane. The decline of Barca is solely because the ethic is whatever you do, get it to Messi...

I, for my sins, support Sheffield United. I think it's a real shame that a club who should never have been relegated (yah booh West Ham!), and who took so long to haul themselves back up from the lower divisions, and who looked so promising last season, are right back down the bottom again. I guess the other teams have just worked out how to play them. And they desperately need a decent goalscorer.

HI Steve And Raggy

Yes we have hit the T0P..... Phew....

It is something that we Man U supporters have been waiting for....too   Long.

I have watched both Liverpool and United recently and I think that United have improved

United have improved quite a lot while Liverpool have dropped off
somewhat.

I know we have a way to go but they can give it a real go.

I think there is some problems in the dressing room with some of their best players are involved.

Long way to go yet but I wait expectively......

All the best.

Cheers

I'm from Radcliffe, which is a lot nearer to Bury, Bolton, Oldham and Rochdale than to Old Trafford, and in any case it's a tribal thing in me family. Man U won't win the league because they are far too immature as a team, they rely far too much on Pogba, Marcus and Bruno, and Ole can't seem to get the consistent best out of the likes of Martial. They're good but not good enough, not yet...

Well many a pundit has said the same. But the seven today has wiped out Liverpool's less than ideal goal difference. Top goal scoring, best goal diff, top of the Christmas table. Be very afraid, Premier League...

And I'll tell you summat else. Every one of those seven goals was a gem. Deny that at your peril!

I simply cannot find any reference to him playing in goal.

When I was 13 I was picked for the Thornleigh under-14 cricket team. One day we played Preston Catholic College at their school. I scored 29, the second-highest score of the season, and I was eventually out LBW (it was an unjust decision in m'humble, delivered by their sports teacher) after they'd used ten different bowlers against me. Also in the match I ran one of their lads out with a mighty throw from the square leg boundary, hitting the one stump directly. We won. It got me a mention in the annual school magazine. It was possibly the greatest day of my life.

My Father who was born in Preston always spoke very highly of Sir Tom Finney.

I believe Tom played Left Wing, Inside Left, Centre Forward, Inside Right and Right Wing for England.

I have to say I was unaware he had ever played Goalkeeper and to date have been unable to find any reference to this.

Tom Finney was slightly before my time, but my dad always said that he was the greatest. My boyhood hero was Jimmy McIlroy. Tribalism prohibits me from considering anyone who played for Man U. :-) As for the greatest of all, pick from Pele, Maradona and Messi. In m'humble.

Well I suppose that the outcome of that game was just about fair. A few years ago the penalty would never have been given. It was as soft as you like - AND there was no clear and obvious error. A few years ago Mo would not have been given offside. And the ref gave a Brighton player a yellow card for a foul that clearly wasn't a foul. Liverpool went on to score from the ensuing free kick but the goal was correctly judged to have been offside. Technically, all the decisions went the right way in the end. But the technology is seriously getting in the way of the game, and the ref didn't exactly help. I want a game played by human beings refereed by a human being.

And I fully agree with Jurgen about the Wednesday night-Saturday morning issue. It isn't fair on the club and it's dangerous for the players. The broadcasters are calling all the shots and the well-being of the the players comes a poor second.

High G Force

Thanks for opening this topic.

As a longtime Man United supporter I am still astonished by the by the players' lack of dedication etc.

I was also amazed by Liverpool's performance....if it were possible they were worse !!!!.

Serious changes will have to be made. Liverpool have the squad to put them back to to to.

I fear that Man United will be going the other way......
I don't think the transfers were good enough to make much improvement.

No doubt that Steve will have his view. .....

"Parking the bus" is a team putting ALL their players in a defensive roll. Not, or rarely, venturing out of their own half, not trying to score a goal, merely preventing the opposing team from scoring.

Boring as hell if you have to suffer watching such a match.

My husband was extremely jealous of the young security guard in the supermarket this morning, who was wearing an anti-Covid mask with the Norwich City FC logo printed on it. (We were masked in boring old blue things bought in a multi-pack) So I asked the chap where he'd bought it, and he was kind enough to give me the website of a Norwich lady who sews them. I might try and buy a few, but they're the washable sort, and I think chuck-away ones are safer.
The supermarket is right beside the Norwich City stadium, and it was very sad to see it all deserted.

What a change in two days. They played with purpose and power. This was rewarded by a (0 - 3 result away from home.

It could ( should ) have been more when Oly removed his best players and it was to save them for more difficult tasks to come.

It was the worst performance I have ever seen from United.....and I've seen some c***p in my time. It was like watching paint dry.

Olly changed his side with 8 changes and they played as if they were strangers.

But.....after scoring a lucky goal on the last minute, they won and now go into the semi finals of the FA Cup !!!!! Norwich battled hard after having man sent off. They wuz robbed.

Not sour grapes at all Steve, Liverpool have played well and deserved to be champions.

However in the time the premiership has been running there have been 7 winners.

Liverpool          1
Blackburn          1
Leicester          1
Arsenal            3
Man City          4
Chelsea            5
Manchester United 13

These are the facts. In the seasons where United didn't win it they were second on 6 occasions and third on 3 occasions.

Sour grapes will get you nowhere. Klopp may not quite be God, aka Shankly, but he sure is seated at the right hand of the father...

Of all the campaigns since the Premier League started, Liverpool's this season has been the finest of them all. They've got some amazing home-grown players on the up and up as well. The future is bright. And I think future threats to our supremacy will come from Chelski, not Citeh. If the latter are banned from the Champions League, I can't see De Bruyne staying. Or Sterling. Or Pep even. And their defence, let's face it, needs urgent attention.
