EPL 2017/18 Thread

I think the absence of a Viera-type player has been at the heart of our problems on the field and in defence in particular. He was just so big and strong and intimidating that he made everybody walk taller. And Dennis Bergkamp would have to go down as one of the very greatest of all time. What a team that was.

I found it very hard watching that video knowing how good we used to be.


#1707

Anyone know why most PL games have been postponed this weekend??

Weather?? Scheduling??


#1708

I’m assuming it’s FACup


#1709

West Ham v Man U definitely postponed.


#1710

Yep it’s a FA Cup weekend.


#1711

FA Cup weekend


#1712

Ah!

Thanks lads!


#1713

VAR can FO


#1714

Why?
Correct decision with the goal being disallowed and at the end of the day that’s all we want to see.
It works brilliantly in other comps in th world it’s really time for the EPL to get up with the times

Salah is a freak of nature. On a hat trick against Watford, and has become the highest scoring Liverpool player, in a debut season, in history. He is going to blow that record out of the water seeing at its only March!

With Kane injured, he is odds on to win the golden boot now.

Salah hat trick. Un-freaking-believable!!


#1717

First LFC hat-trick for the Egyptian King. 4-0 Liverpool, Firmino with the other goal. Great response at home to last week’s defeat.


#1718

Make that 4!!! :flushed::flushed:


#1719

Glad to see Salah play this week after filing that missing persons report for him at OT last week


#1720

Speaking of missing persons, where’s that £90 Million lamp post who masquerades as a midfielder?


#1721

Whole side was missing today. Shocking performance but 2-0 and through to the Semi finals


#1722

As opposed to the £75m I think he’s a center back?


#1723

Correct decision? Lol. I think you, the VAR and the ref are the only three that think it was offside. Even ManU and Liverpool fans saying it wasn’t offside.

I think in soccer it disrupts the natural flow of the game, and often there are still interpretations to make. I have no problem with the goal line technology. That’s explicit, did the ball cross the line or not? And the ref gets an alert on his watch. But offsides are still arbitrary, especially for tight calls. And penalty decisions. Was there contact? Was there enough contact to justify the player going down? Was there a dive? And for handball, was it intentional? Was the arm in a natural position? Then decisions regarding fouls and whether it is a straight red. I say let the refs call the game and unless it is an absolute howler of a decision then leave it.
