anyone who considers DCL the equal or better than Solomon Rondon, is seriously disillusioned, the man is top class just hope the rednoses don't move on him.

Agree0 0Disagree

Same rondon that hasn't scored over 10 since 2014,hes 29 near 30 aswell DCL is 22 and been playing brilliantly, holds the ball up well and wins most things in the air and his movement allows richarlison and siggy the space to score goals.

Agree3 0Disagree

The reds got 20 million for solanke so DCL must be worth 40 million.
As for Rondon, he is playing at his level (Newcastle) no way could he step up.

I often wondered if we had some sort of gypsy curse who was a Liverpool supporter that had placed one on us, all tongue in cheek but spooky at the same time, the Brian Hamilton no goal starting it off, then the following year when we finally got it right, the policeman takes Andy Kings moment away with a get off the pitch, fast forward to 84 and Alan Hanson's handball waved away at Wembley, we shall bypass 85 and missing out on a particular cup, we then have Linkers boots misplaced at Oxford, a phantom pot hole at Landsdown Road ending Southalsl season.

Fast forward and you have Dan Goslings winner cut short for a tic tac advert, another moment cut in its prime, then one of our most reliable defenders having a brain freeze and passing the ball back straight into Suarez path, then a ref knocking 30 seconds off his watch as Hutchisons back deflection heads towards an empty net.

Then you have Roger Kenyons crazy own goal in the first league cup final replay, followed by a Darracott howler letting the ball pass him to an unmarked a Little for the winning goal in the second replay.

The last two Anfield derbies where on both occasions in stoppage time, the same keeper makes the same mistake at the same end of the pitch.

So is it a curse, is it just down right rotten luck.

Anyway thought it would make a decent read during the International break.

You forgot Sandy Browns amazing diving header into the Street End mate!

Brilliant post bignev may I add mcallister moving the ball 10ft closer to the goal for his free kick.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 22:04:48
I did Degsy but we both also forgot Mick Lyons one as well in the Annie road end.

Nice one Lee slipped my mind those yards McCallister pinched.

Don Hutchinson’s goal which ref claims to have blew for full time before it hit the net.

Ive been away a few days so couldn't respond re my Dark Clouds posts. A few said we were rubbish in the first half and brilliant in the second half. Well in my view Silva must be doing ok. Because last season we were rubbish in the first half and even more rubbish in the second half lol!

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 07:52:58
You're not wrong Degsy. I am still mentally scarred from last seasons so called football.
Silva has had them playing some good stuff at times, the average age of our 18 has dropped. Inconsistency is inevitable when the majority of our starting 11 are under 25.
Hopefully we can beat a couple more of the top 6 before the end of the season. That will breed some confidence into this young team.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:37:09
Well against Newcastle we were good in the first half and terrible in the second half, so no consistency. Hopefully we can start to play well for 90 plus minutes and then we will be capable of a top six finish.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 14:23:34
Can only repeat. Last Season we finished 8th playing rubbish football and with apparently inferior team. This Season with a better side we will be lucky to finish top half playing pretty football.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 15:28:34
Well you get nothing for finishing 8th or 13th so let's keep the pretty football.
Allardyce is still out of a job which says it all.

Lets be real about it. We suffered terrible defensive injuries after Koeman had suffered a woefull transfer window by being let down by Giroud and Rooney deciding to return and yet no left sided players. The squad was disjointed and unbalanced and Siggy played mostly on the left wing. not his best position. So yes the new manager inherited a catastrophe in the making. He brought in players that were needed. He got us playing decent football at times. He made some mistakes. His defensive record re set pieces is awful. But hey let's give the bloke some credit for Bernard, Richarlison, Mina, Gomez and Digne. I expect a few more to leave and a few more to come in after this season. It's not great yet. but its certainly better than it was. Irrespective of league positions.

Hello guys.
I was wondering what the criteria for England selection is.
Not that I'm saying he is good enough yet but surely just based on games played in the top league Dominic calvert-lewin should be getting a look in. He has played 28 times in the league mostly starts compared to Hudson-odoi havering played.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:38:41
Hudson Odoi is a winger, not a striker, Calvert Lewin hasn't really got a good strike rate has he, works hard but isn't scoring too many.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 16:21:01
But at least he is playing and Contributing. My point wasn't why Hudson odoi instead of him. But why don't they look at players who play regularly.

22 Mar 2019 17:17:45
Ask the England manager. I am sure he has a reason.

Sigurdson’s Goal on Sunday would not count next season with the rule changes. Penalties will be like penalty kicks once the keeper saves it the ball is dead.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 17:37:34
To be fair he shouldn't be taking them anyway he's rubbish at penalty's.

Who should step up? DCL to increase his goals tally. Richarlison or maybe Digne.

Got to be Ricky for me.

How about lookman to get him going now we are safe and have nothing left to play for.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 22:15:37
Never seen anyone take one apart from sigs. Very unlikely lookman will be on the pitch when we next have one though so think that’s a non starter.
Need to have someone who is good at penalties rather than just to get someone’s tally up or to give someone confidence. I don’t fancy Richarlison at penalties - I reckon Digne could be good but I’m sure they are looking at this as we can’t continue with sigs.

I haven’t heard that rule that once it’s saved it’s dead - don’t really get that to be honest. if they foul someone before shooting there is a chance that shot would be saved but chance on rebound - don’t see why teams should not get chance of a rebound with penalty.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 22:22:22
Next season Pickford I bet he'd love that.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 23:26:26
I thought the same with Digni having a go.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 07:10:58
Singing the blues. I think in Siguurdsons case and other similar ones that rule would be challenged. Technically the penalty was not saved because the ball was still live and in play (keeper did not have possession) , a rebound, not a save.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 17:45:35
It’s a ridiculous rule. Why change it anyway? The rebound could go anywhere so could be defended as much as stuck in the net. Just leave it alone.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely ace..

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 13:54:54
Singing the blues is right all penalties that are saved or hit the goal frame and come back out will be dead and a goal kick given. This then eradicates encroachment by the players and is seen to level it up in fairness as the team missing the penalty has an advantage as they have a player in the box to hit any rebound. Think its a stupid rule change myself but it will be in force next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 22:42:47
With the new change of a player being subbed and leaving by the nearest touch line to avoid time wasting, one other rule which is a big pet hate of mine is the taking of short corners near the end of a match.

Two rules I would change is an attacking team mate also has to retreat the same distance as the defending team as one change, and the second being, the ball has to be inside the semi corner circle, without touching the outer semi circle line.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 07:26:58
Calvert-Lewin for me, he takes them for England U-21 and scores most of them if not all.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 19:03:14
Big dom he takes a lovely penalty and its confidence boosting for him.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 01:10:35
Digna for me.
