    So the abuse Andy Robbo's been receiving from Scotland 'fans' to the point he's deactivated his Twitter account ..... International fans are F idiots. Lads go away, with a WHOLE different calibre of player, working with a coach who has a WHOLE different approach to training for 2 weeks with oft completely different styles/ systems, and they expect them to perform to the rhythm they have with their respective clubs. Imbeciles. Hail.

    I've just picked up the '9ers D to replace the Ravens this week if that helps. Don't often stream D's but the Ravens are playing the Chiefs this week. The only other one I was toying with was Seattle. Tough place to go without Brees. But the threat of Kamara, and to a lesser extent Thomas, doing something out of nothing had me plump for San Francisco. Hail.

    Great news to read the lad who collapsed and left the ground for the hospital with head injuries from an earlier attack is sound this morning as it was pretty worrying following that through the game last night. I love the Police reports of '2 fans' being attacked the Port. From everyone I've spoken to there were far more than that with gangs of ultra's tipping up at the pick-up point with chains, belts and various other weapons. There's the bar Ste and his mates were in that got attacked. A few of my mates were in a bar earlier in the day that was attacked by the scooter brigade wielding chains. (Thankfully nobody got injured there.). A couple of others got attacked Monday night, and then really suffered at the hands of the Carabinieri (who are just as bad as the ultra's in many instances), before being put on a plane home Tuesday morning for no good reason, And you mooch around twitter there are other instances being reported. Then you get Swansen on Sky telling everyone what an 'intimidating, but beautiful place Naples is!' Painting a completely false narrative the whole piece. If this happened in L'pool we'd be getting banned. Hell, the very fact the official blurb from the club on safety warned you to stay in your hotel!!!!! ..... Could you imagine if that was said to Napoli fans November on their visit to our City? There'd be a National outcry and we'd be the scum of the Earth again. Thankfully, everyone I know, and those I usually travel with, have appeared to have got away unscathed. But there was a reason I was sat at home last night and not in Naples. And I absolutely live for European aways. Single worst place I've ever had the misfortune of visiting with L'pool. Without being dramatic, the absolute cesspit of inhumanity who absolutely revel in a feral like existence that doesn't welcome outsiders kindly. A moody, filthy, impoverished s/hole that's underpinned everywhere with the Mafia edge overseeing everyone. Which manifests itself in the worst possible way when it comes to football. Just not an enjoyable trip the whole time you're there as you're constantly watching your back. But so long as UEFA continues to turn a blind eye, and the authorities in Naples do the same, nothing will ever change. And now, ala the Europa game, you're liable to get a slew of revenge attacks at Anfield the return with anyone remotely Italian looking getting volleyed all over. Which is not the way to go at all but is sadly the nature of these things. It just creates a real moody atmosphere whenever you play the horrible ****s. One thing's for sure, you couldn't pay me enough money to ever go there again after seeing absolutely no change in the 10 year or so gap or whatever it was between the Europa under the Hodge and last year. Twice is MORE than enough for me in that hell hole. There comes a time, when chains and worse are being openly used on anyone and everyone, that your own personal safety outweighs following the Reds. As Roma brought home in stark contrast to poor Sean Cox the semi. Hail.

    Seriously don't understand the point of VAR? The stonewall pen not given Sat'day. Now a stonewall dive tonight is.. The City non-goal Tottenham. (Although that was slightly different with the ridiculous new handball rule but still.). If you aren't overruling clear and obvious, just what's the F point? Seriously frustrating to see a real top drawer game of football like that change on something like that when it was supposed to have been brought in to clear all this up. Overall a really good performance that we just ended the wrong side of against another very good side in their house. Just one of them. The officiating aside, no harm. No foul. We'll be sound for Sunday and the rest the group. ALL thoughts and concerns now turn to the safety of the lads out in Naples and nobody getting filled in later tonight in that s/hole. Hail.

    Least the lads I normally travel with have made it in the ground ok. Unlike those who've been attacked the pick-up point. And at various stages through last night and today. This S happened over here, we'd be banned again. Hell, could you imagine the National outcry if Napoli advised there fans to not leave the hotel in Liverpool November like our clubs safety advice has been for this one? But every F year in Naples and nottin EVER gets done. UEFA are a continued disgrace. F batter these pricks Reds! Hail.

    Into these horrible s/houses Redmen! Heard enough last night and today about indiscriminate attacks going on. These will get volleyed all over at Anfield November. Just hope everyone survives tonight as I know what it's like when they dump you back the port with no protection the early hours after a couple of hours riding round the ring road. Stay safe boys. But first things first. Let's pay the ****s back in style on the pitch! Hail.

    Awww man that was CRUEL! Chubb caught took a pass 13 yards the Browns final time-killing drive with a little over 5 mins left to snatch the W from my hands. It left Chubb covering at 19.80, and handed me my first lost on the year. 128.02- 128.86. A .84 margin of defeat. Devoed! Congrats 'Summon Up The Beal!' Heck of a game. Only 2 teams remain undefeated after 2 weeks. With 8 more of us tied 1-1. (I sit 4th with the 4th highest points total thus far so there is that.). Onto W3 and getting back on track against one of the 2-0 leaders. Biggie already. Hail.

    Our competition’s finally here again! This time with L’pool as defending Champions for the first time in 14 LONG years. In the history of the biggest competition in all of football, only 6 clubs have ever been to three straight finals- 5. Madrid. 1956-1960. W5. 3. Madrid. 2016-2018. W3. 3. Benfica. 1961-1963. W2/ L1. Ajax. 1971-1973. W3. Bayern. 1974-1976. W3. AC Milan. 1993-1995. W1/ L2. Juventus. 1996-1998. W1/ L2. Just 7 times in the 64 year history of the European Cup/ UEFA Champions League, has a club got to 3 or more straight finals. That’s the monumental task ahead of us as we set out on this latest journey around the Continent that will hopefully wind up in that awesome City, where East meets West, on the banks of the Bosporus, next May. And would anyone seriously bet against this Liverpool side, the clear beat side across Europe, joining that illustrious group and being back where our European season started last month in the final in Istanbul? We’ve been to back-to-back finals three times. Let’s go one better and go for the hat-trick! First things first. Napoli to open the group tomorrow night. I’d be absolutely made up with a draw. That, along with winning all the home games, qualifies us all things being equal. A win would be the icing on the cake. Get in. Get anything we can. Get out. And the MOST important thing of all, may everyone that's travelled out to the absolute S/hole of Italy come home safe and unscathed. For someone that lives for European trips, I can honestly say I’m dead happy to be sat at home typing this and not in Southern Italy. You couldn’t pay me enough to ever go back to that absolute cesspit of inhumanity. Twice is MORE than enough there ta. Up the 6 times European F Royalty Reds! The road to #7 starts here! Hail.

    Ugh. 6.38 under the original projection for the week, has left me sweating on Nick Chubb getting under 18.97 tonight. The difference between 2-0 and 1-1 hanging in the hands of the NY Jets D. Just peachy. Hail.

    The bitter sweet nature of FF. i have the drafted Amari Cooper, and the FA pick-up Randall Cobb (with today in particular in mind), going for Dallas in fantasy this week. Both of whom I hope destroy the Redskins D. As much as I want to see the back of the totally inept Zorn, uhmmm, I mean lil’ Gruden, I don’t naturally want Dallas to win the game. One of them fantasy Sunday’s. *Shrugs. Hail.

    Well that was totally unexpected. City blinking for the second time the opening 5 games. I fully expected both L'pool and City to be neck-and-neck on 15 points a-piece at this stage. But we'll take the very surprising, if very gratefully received, bonus of having a two game cushion this early to sit back with our feet up whilst the fume rolls down the other end the East Lancs. As for the mighty Reds- First this weeks admin: 43 unbeaten in the league now at Anfield. (33 W/ 10 D.). With a current unbeaten run of 22 games. (18 W/ 4 D.). The longest under Jurgen. Club record consecutive winning league streak extended to 14. Moving us joint third as regards this in English top flight history with Arsenal's 2002 vintage. Only City this calendar year with 15, and their 2017 team with a record 18 straight, have more. BUT, this gang of super special Reds has become the first side to win 14 straight English top flight games scoring 2 or more in every game. We've now set a club record of 5 straight league wins to open a season in successive seasons. Something that's only been achieved twice before in English top flight history- Chelsea. (2009/10, 2010/11.). City. (2015/16, 2016/17.). Sadio becomes the first player to go 50 consecutive games unbeaten at the same ground in PL history. Salah watch- Messi-Mo is now upto 101 goal involvements (75 goals/ 26 assists) through 111 L'pool games. With 79 (58 goals/ 21 Assists) through 79 PL games. Beyond phenomenal. After a slow start, another routine L'pool win. You go behind to a belter goal like that, and you just shrug your shoulders and say 'Well that's mildly annoying.' Fully expecting these lads to come back and find a way to win. All changed, not least the crowd who were very subdued to our detriment (Saturday dinner KO's. What can I tell you?), when Bobby came on and perked everyone up. Almost his first touch he's winning it and playing that ball in for Sadio's second. The pure filth for the third is just ridiculous. Sensational display. As was Mo casually scampering through to slot whilst some poor Newcastle fella is left on his backside vainly trying to get near him. Shout outs to Gini, who was everywhere midfield, and Andy Robbo, who was back to his marauding best. Just another solid all round display and yet another 3 points. Par for the course to what we now are. The best team out there anywhere. Couple of negatives that I'd be remiss to not mention as they continue to nark the living P out of you- Low life, lower league mentality fanbases. This time Newcastle .... Aside from the fact you've just walked past food banks to get into the ground, Newcastle has a way higher unemployment rate and inner City poverty than Liverpool. Yet you think it's funny to sing the highly unoriginal 'Sign on?' AGAIN?!!!!! THINK hey bellends? This is 2019 for Pete's sake. Mocking poverty isn't big and it isn't clever. Particularly when you come from a City full of it. And the 'Steven Gerrard slip' song? Seriously. Jut what the F does that game have to do with you again? Rafa must be SO proud of yers ..... Here's hoping you F off back down the Championship where yers belong. VAR. Can we agree this is a ridiculous experiment and just bin it now? Exactly WHAT is the point, when a referee makes such a clear and obvious F up, after such a clear and obvious assault for a stonewall peno, of VAR if it's not going to do what it says on the tin and correct a CLEAR AND OBVIOUS mistake?!!!!! The sad thing in many ways was Sadio scoring the belting equaliser just after as it probably won't be discussed the media now when everyone should be screaming from the rooftops on the latest error that could have been very costly at that stage of the game. My only saving grace with VAR is the hope that it continues to be this bad, missing SUCH obvious game changing decisions, and they eventually pull it and spare us more carnage. Ta Norwich for rounding out a great weekend. Now onto Tuesday and the return of OUR competition! Up the 'We are the Champions, Champions of Europe!' Reds! Hail.

    Nice piece for the Arsenal fans among our number- https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/sep/12/dani-ceballos-arsenal-real-madrid-hardly-any-difference-anfield Liverpool, Ceballos says, was quite a lesson. It takes him a moment to order his thoughts. “I’ve never seen anything like what I saw at Anfield; I haven’t seen a team that plays better, that presses like them, the way the fans carry them along. “They take the air from you. You spend so much time defending and when you want to do something with the ball, when you want to breathe, they’re back on top of you. They’re very well-drilled.” Those sort of comments from the opposition on Anfield and Klopp's L'pool are nottin new like. But it still never get's tiring to read the reverence we're held in once again.Up the bad ass Reds! Hail.

    Talking of tickets, another absolute joke organisation is the Football League. MK Dons tried to charge L'pool season ticket holders £ 6 less for the same tickets than members for the League Cup tie the end of the month. Which naturally caused some real fume. So, after consultation, both club's agreed to price all tickets in the middle at £25. But that apparently contravenes competition rules so the FL has forced the club to revert back to the original £22 price for seasonies/ £28 for members. L'pool are off-setting that by giving members a £6 voucher to use the ground but that's not the point. The FL needs to address its archaic rules. Hail.

    Mafia contractors ay? .....https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49672091Continued disgrace that UEFA have relented AGAIN and let Napoli continue to play at that crumbling mess. All their European games should have been moved to Bologna as was initially agreed. (The official blurb from the club on safety warns supporters staying in Naples to not leave their hotel rooms for their own safety!!!!!). SO glad I'm swerving that moody, horrible S/hole next week. Couldn't pay me to go back to Naples. Twice is MORE than enough in that absolute cesspit of inhumanity. Hopefully the few that do go out return unscathed. (Side note- Amusing how all 2.5K or so tickets went in no time the other day. We'll do well to have 5/600 out there. Credit hunting at its finest.). Hail.
