    It's superb but I don't know how many times Klopp has to watch Moreno to realise he's about as capable of defending as Prince Philip would be at running the London Marathon.

    Shouldn't even be in a squad like this. Imagine if Robertson got injured and they had to play him for months, goodbye Premier League.

    I wouldn’t say his presence interfered with Barkley winning the header instead of the defender, Mignolet saving it how he did or Emerson scoring the follow up. So with the rules as they are then it’s fine.

    Good to see inside five minutes that Forestieri is still a no necked wanker.

    Does that make our result against West Ham look better or our result against United look worse?

    West Ham better if anything. United on a rocky path

    Not sure how they don't. If West Ham finish top half then beating them is retrospectively more impressive than it was when it happened. Equally, if you beat a side that you think is good but turns out to underperform on the year, it doesn't look as good at the end of things.

    Don't think you can be that simplistic with it, form isn't linear so you can't just decide on what's a good result/performance based on league positions. Even if West Ham won the league it wouldn't mean the teams that beat them early doors managed a phenomenal result because they were a very poor side when the season started.

    That's probably fair.

    We hammered Burnley with 30 shots on goal and they won their next game 4-0. Fucking hell Alan, I know you like to argue the most inane arguments but for fuck's sake, put some thought into your posts.

    That's really not a common thought in sport over there? It's all over the place in American football.

    You beat the Pats early in the season? That looks great. If the Pats then lose 10 games and miss the playoffs? Suddenly that win doesn't look so good.

    FFS, Booz, this high horse you're on lately is bewildering.

    You judge each game on its own merits. We played West Ham and Burnley at perfect times when they were poor. Man Utd too to a similar extent. What they do after that in the season makes no difference.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Like I said, probably fair, and maybe the longer season has taken that sort of narrative out of your media coverage of the sport. Here, though, especially in American football, you hear that sort of thing week in and week out when the talking heads try to decide who's better than who (on paper).

    It's a really invasive vine that came to the States from somewhere in Asia. Grows like wildfire and is fucking impossible to get rid of once it sets on a place.

    Hah, I see that the Wiki article even specifies it as a US specific phenomenon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kudzu_..._United_States


    Stuff is a fucking nightmare.

    Nope, suppose an analogy would be Japanese knot weed. Don't get how it applies to the forum though

    Seems like every time I post anything out-of-the-norm of British football philosophy it gets fucking set on like mad. Like kudzu.

    Didn't use to happen so much but

    Yeah and it's getting quite boring to be honest. Some of Alan's ideas might be far-fetched or 'Americanised' (it's almost as if he is american or something), but he gets grief, and not in a funny way, for no real reason.
