    Just waiting to finalise a trade that was agreed pending a player still being available. Watch this space for the minute.

    Sounds very Leeds. Think we've had one season in the last ten where we've spent more money than we've sold. Get out of there before its too late I'd say!

    I see your argument but would've been soft for me. Far too theatrical. I also think if Dele Alli did that against you you'd be labelling him a cheat and baying for his blood to be fair!

    With the 3rd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft the New York Jets select..... Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma With a low pick and a lot of time before my next picks I've put a lot of time into watching the QB's. Not sure if this is deemed controversial or not but Mayfield for me is the best QB in the draft and the Jets trading up in real life has forced my hand to take him this early. I haven't seen a QB with so much poise in years. Never phased by a pass rusher coming at him, stands strong in the pocket and never hesitates to pull the trigger. Amazing composure and an amazing presence on the field. Exactly the kind of franchise QB and team leader the Jets have been crying out for. The guy is going to be a star imo.

    God I'd love to trade back all the picks the Jets gave away last week... Pick on the way.
  9. An overpay but a necessary overpay I think given the state of our receiving group. He has that DJax ability to track a ball down. Just the guy we were missing last year to stretch the field. Happy with that.

    You can add in Ireland and Australia to the list of countries where most call it soccer too.

    Flag does often shoot up quicker than it should yeah. Seen it many times. I said all along that Liverpool were unlucky to have all the big decisions go against them. By the letter of the law they got the offside 100% correct though so I don't see how one can blame the ref/linesman for doing their jobs correctly. There's no epiphanies, I'm being consistent with what I've said all along with everything. I thought I was being very fair throughout that whole discussion to be honest, you guys just didn't see it that way.

    According to the rulebook he's then onside yes.

    Not sure what I'm missing here. Any time I said the correct decision was made it was in the context of the offside part of the decision. I'm still genuinely not even 100% sure about the Kane dive part as it's not a clear call. Every call in football isn't plain black and white unfortunately. My summary though was that Liverpool were very unlucky to have so many close calls not go their way. I stick by that. Let it go GHH.

    I'm not getting into another mad debate but I called the Kane penalty decision harsh at the time if you read back.

    Ah I'd never defend blatant diving to be fair.

    Yeah it's every game now really he does something. England international's always get preferential treatment when it comes to these things which isn't right.

    Video isn't working but I presume it's the Ali dive from earlier. Terrible dive I agree 100%. He should be punished at this stage no doubt.

    Trying to look up my previous drafts. Are the 2016 & 2015 mock draft threads still out there somewhere? Can't find them for the life of me. Edit: Got 2016 , no sign of 2015 anywhere but I found my picks saved on the laptop.

    This puts it to bed anyway. Decision was the correct one even if they made a bit of a balls of the process in giving it. Wonder if Klopp will come out and apologise for not knowing the rules of the game and wrongly calling the referee inadequate.

    That's the rule according to the book so I don't see Clattenburg's argument to be honest. These rules are made in order to give the benefit to the attacking team and that's exactly what happened. "Deliberate" means any attempt to play the ball that results in a touch. The mere fact that it causes so much debate means Liverpool were pretty unfortunate to come out the wrong end of it to be fair. I do think the correct decision overall was probably made though. Yeah I respect the linesman for putting himself out there to be honest too. Most would shirk from the responsibility in that position.

    This kind of rational thinking isn't allowed on here I'm afraid. The pitchforks will be out for you soon too. At the end of the day, Lovren played the ball so the correct decision was 100% made there. Kane couldn't have been offside by the rules of the game. I do think the actual penalty decision (Karius' foul) was dubious enough. Kane was definitely looking for the contact. Not a straightforward call by any means though.

    I've never known such a hostile thread where people takes themselves so seriously I've said absolutely nothing outrageous here. If I have please point out what it is. You're Liverpool fans so obviously you have an agenda. Maybe take a deep breath, read over my posts again and realise what I'm saying is actually completely fair. If it wasn't then I wouldn't have every pundit under the sun agreeing with me I reckon.
