Didn’t we beat them 7-2 at home a few days before.
It was after, it was the days you played the same team home and away over the Easter period, on 12th April it was Liverpool away, on 13th April Fulham at home and on 15th April Liverpool at home and as you say it was 7-2.

Just checked out the players, Bill Brown, Dave Mackay, Ron Henry, Tony Marchi, Cliff Jones, Terry Dyson, Jimmy Greaves and Johnnny White played in all three games in a four day period and today you get moans and groans about the schedules from people being played millions.

Didn’t realise Fulham were in there as well. 3 games in 4 days, bonkers.

My summary is this;

- Emerson is terrible. He is a liability, bring Drags in and push VDV to the left.
- Our wide men have to believe they can beat their man. BJ has speed to beat any player, however more often than not he predictably cuts inside and stifles play.
- I'm not Richys biggest fan however he has the ability to hold the ball up and bring other players into the game. He changes how we attack. He has to start.
- Kulu frustrates me the most. He is technically one of the best players we have but slows the game down as he has zero pace.
It’s not so much that Kulusevski has no pace it is that he plays on the right yet refuses to use his right foot to put in early crosses. He then takes an eternity cutting in and deciding what he’s going to do next.

Well thats what I mean.

We',ll be expected to best Burnley and Sheffield United.

But have lost to four of the better sides recently, arguably City better than all of them, so no one will be expecting us to get anything against City.
That’s true but the Law of the Bogey Team comes into play. Newcastle, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are bogey teams of ours especially away from home( 1 win in 30 at Stamford Bridge, similar at Arsenal and Anfield) but we are ManC’s bogey team in recent years so beating them would not be a real shock.

Do you really think that? Personally I honestly think that's what let's Richarlison down, with his back to goal he can never hold the ball up.

Is the ref listening to Sky during the match then?
I understand that the sky team can hear the decision from Stockley park, however I would not be surprised if they did listen to commentary. You just have to listen to Neville, i am convinced they do hear him. When Richy ran into Saliba last week he was screaming red card red card it was not natural commentary - it was like he was influencing external review. Same with Johnson clash this week his commentary was deliberate.

Yeah. You’re def right. I’ve heard Carragher tickles their balls whilst Neville is dictating.

Redknapp just watches tho.

Agreed however, he runs in slow motion!
