Bit sad we lost, but it was good experience for Norwich. And we held them off for the first half, quite an achievement against such a star team.
I was much amused at the Toon Army (Newcastle United) bringing inflatable cats to the match v West Ham. Kurt Zouma, having kicked his cat and thumped it on video deserves this teasing. I liked their little song too.

Certainly. That'll be in eleven years' time, so hang in there...

And I'd remind you that those golden Fergie years were besmirched by Fergie's unfailing ability to piss off the world's greats, including Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo... Then there was the serial abuse and intimidation of referees, Fergie time (proven), a stupid and petulant falling-out with the BBC, hundreds of unattractive, scrappy narrow victories...

Give me Jurgen any day! I've watched the majority of Liverpool matches this season and I've seen positive, attacking football every time, even when they've not been on top form. Klopp is brilliant at developing players, he promotes harmony in his squad and he realises that football is primarily about giving the fans a great experience. The club is run on a proper business footing, money is not wasted buying players just to get star names in the squad - and scousers the world over love it all. Watch MOTD on catchup and admire those three beautiful goals against Norwich.

By the way, sorry about that, Jon and Eliza...It had to be done I'm afraid... and Man Citeh got beaten!

Not a problem Steve, I seem to recall that Liverpool have won the Premiership lust ONCE, Manchester City have won it FIVE times, Chelsea have also won it FIVE times, Arsenal have won it TWICE. Blackburn Rover and Leicester City like Liverpool have won it just ONCE.

Manchester United, just for the record, have won it THIRTEEN times, including three hat tricks.

4-0 was a good result. Dad and I had both predicted a 5-0 loss. We've both accepted Norwich will probably be slaughtered by the top sides. How many points the club picks up from other matches is of more concern.

It didn't sound friendly to me in the description:
one American player, Kelly Acosta if memory serves,
was so aggressively toppled over from behind
that the Bosnian in question was red-carded.

Well here's a heartwarming and inspirational football story. Just about a year ago, the   Mexican footballer Raúl Jiménez, who played as Wolves' star striker, was so badly injured after a collision of heads that it seemed he would die.

There's a lovely 30-minute documentary on the Beeb that follows his route to recovery from that awful incident. It's taken many months for his rehabilitation, but as from the start of this season he's fully recovered and is, by now, back to his menacing best for Wolves (he scored an amazing goal yesterday) and is going from strength to strength.

He's a lovely, smiley man with a lovely family, all featured in the programme, as is his erstwhile Wolves manager, Nuno Espiritosanto, another wonderful human being. I thought it was a great watch. It's called Code Red and it's on iPlayer.

Following on from that, at the end of the match the BBC radio commentator said "In the first half, United had their trousers pulled down by Liverpool. In the second half, they just toyed with 'em..."

Yet another scintillating, thrilling game, Atletico Madrid v. Liverpool in the Champions League. We won dirty, as they say, in a tight and open game. Edge of seat, which is how I like it. Atleti, as expected, play-acted their way through the match and their manager Diego Simeone did his primadonna bit on the touchline as ever. So we top the group, max points, and two more goals for Mo. Brilliant!

A stellar football match at Anfield. A draw, but who cares. Pep and Jurgen have a huge amount of respect for each other. The second half especially was a footballing spectacle you will rarely see. The icing on the cake was Mo Salah's goal. You won't see a better one this season. What I love is that these guys are producing the kind of football that football fans love. No parking of the bus, no defensive negativity. Brilliant stuff.

Dig this piece of writing from Barney Ronay in the Guardian about last night's match:

At moments like these Chelsea seem to have a wealth of everything, and somehow not quite enough of some things: a brilliantly powerful squad that still has the sense somehow of too much hole and not enough doughnut.

"Too much hole and not enough doughnut." God, I love that! I've used it four times this morning already (once about Keir Starmer...)

Tuff titty, Chelski! They were mugged by a canny Juve team (I watched the match). Juventus always seemed to have nine or ten men behind the ball, shades of Mourinho when he was at the helm at Chelsea. I still expect Chelsea to get through from the group they're in. They should smash Juve at the Bridge (which I lived literally next door to for two years in the early 70s, where I first met the eventually-to-be Mrs Steve in 1974). I see that Man U scraped a victory. Actually, I'm a massive admirer of Cristiano, and I treasure a photo of Mrs Steve standing next to his statue in Funchal, Madeira, the place of his upbringing. Just down from that statue is a coffee bar that sells the best bloody pastel de nata on the planet. Yes!!
