  1. We are the famous, the famous Kloppites! Or already done..?
  2. This is the crux of the issue for the public and press. Whatever the nuances, they will never be able to conceive that it doesn't inherently carry racist intent. The FA, however, have called in the experts who say that it can and frequently is used without racist intent, and the rest the case attempts to prove the intent. The retracted/whitewashed "ten times" claim in that scenario would have significance. Having accepted that in native usage it can be used without intent however, they then apply English usage. A few pages back I gave the example of the C-word having hugely different weights
  3. Quite right. This is part of the groundless nonsense used to justify the whole thing. Even some of the writers sympathetic to Suarez have hinted that perhaps he was under some sort of moral obligation to know, one even suggesting that the club should have warned him about the word before he used it. This would open up a massive hole if players and anyone else started to act in bad faith. Europe is not a homognenous society. It also has over 200 languages. The implied asumptions that Holland is culturally "a bit like England" and "they all speak good English" is patronizing, ignorant and verg

    Kenny

    "first you have to learn about Shankly, Paisley and Kenny Dalglish." They're the blood line of this club.
  5. "I believe this action played a significant role in their departures" If it has proved effective, I think we should all do the same as chewie
  6. He also isn't afraid of getting up the pitch. He provided the "assist" for the Suarez/Kuyt first goal
  7. Rushie! Liverpool scoring legend runs viewers through his favourite goals while exploring a range of fast active hallucinogenic drugs, many of them for the first time.
  8. I bet he physically threw up when we sold Torres for 50 million That with Babel and some loose change came out as 20% of the club's sale price
  9. Ronaldo did kind of flit in and out of good years and bad, but you could argue that the peak Ronaldo we think of - his year at Barcelona - was never quite replicated anywhere else. He had the advantage though, as a striker, of replacing what pace and athleticism he had with bulldozer qualities not available to most fast strikers to complement his skills. I don't know enough about Del Piero to comment , but Gerrard's a fair call. Although he's had to adjust his game numerous times. He hasn't been the all goal-scoring, all- tackling, all-passing and crossing phenomenon he once was for a few ye
  10. Out of interest, how many strikers do we know of who were stars at 17 and stayed at the very top of their game beyond the age of 27? I think of Owen, Fowler, Raul, all had faded by then I think. How many footballers in any position, other than perhaps goalkeeper and central defender, stay at there very best for longer than 10 years?
  11. Cheers. So effectively getting Chelsea to pay Torres for us to accept the request. "LIttle victories,Godber. Little victories..."
  12. I'd like to know this: if handing in a transfer request mean th eplayers waives some sort of pay-off when he's sold, then how do things stand contratually when that request is "refused" and the player is still sold? Just out of curiosity.
  13. I'm hoping he'll be told he can't go until the summer. He can then offer an apology, say he panicked and got bad advice, and play his heart out like never before alongside Suarez to ensure he gets the move he wants at the end of the season when they'll be a lot more competition in the market but possibly for a lot more options. It's happened before - Tevez - and probably in countless other cases we never found out about. And if he does that, and Suarez comes good as well, he might find he's changed his mind by then, and if not, so be it. The right words and a couple of the right performances

    Fulham @ home

    Anyone think Hodgson might try and set us up to lose six nil so he can show the owners what a fantastic team he can produce if given time? 'Course, it'd probably mean us wnning six nil, but that's by the by...
