  1. That makes two of us...
  2. Ahh dammit, I was going to join again this year. Didn't realise you'd have everything sorted this early!
  3. Re: The Official NFL Thread. Who's name you get? My girlfriend got me one for Christmas at the full price
  4. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Done. I've only been to Liverpool a handful of times, so might not be of much use to you

  6. Re: Official Liverpool Thread You seem to think that we went in at the break 0-0 because of luck. Ash has just pointed out exactly why Swansea didn't score in the first half, and it has nothing to do with luck. Mignolet making two or three big saves is no different than a striker scoring two or three big goals. Would you call that luck? If that's your argument then United, and van Gaal, must be the luckiest team in the world right now (some things never change). How many points worse off do you think they'd be without De Gea? To say we didn't play well enough to deserve a lead in the second half is quite amusing. I wonder if you actually watched the match? Despite being completely dominated in the first half, our performance was so much better in the second half that we actually finished the game with slightly more possession than Swansea. Considering that they had well over 60% in the first half, I'd say that was quite an achievement. There's also the fact that we had more shots, more shots on target, and more corners. I'd say we were certainly deserving of a win. The goal may well have been a lucky one, but you can't use that to say that we didn't deserve the three points. As they say, these things even themselves out over the course of a season. We've also had our fair share of luck going against us this season. In fact, Sturridge was rather unlucky not to score when his clever shot hit the post. You've literally just said that "you can't be lucky when you have just lost what 1 in 22?" so surely that works both ways? Using your logic, Liverpool have now won ten of their last 12 games and haven't lost in the league since December. Rodgers didn't have a plan B earlier in the season, and that is largely why our form was so poor. Thankfully, he seems to be improving that part of his game (something he's going to need to be successful in Europe). He managed last night's game absolutely superbly. Gary Monk deserves a lot of credit for the way he set up Swansea, he found a way to counter our 3-4-3 which is something that no other manager has achieved this season. You absolutely cannot deny that Rodgers acknowledged the problem, made changes at half time, and consequently turned the game around. You can call it what you like, but that is simply great tactical/game management.
  7. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread I don't. Playing the second leg at home is always advantageous and Chelsea got to play an extra 30 minutes in front of their own fans. Allowing the away goal rule to continue into extra time keeps it fair. Absolutely fantastic game management from PSG in the last few minutes. I'm not particularly a fan of it, but you have to admit - it is effective.
  8. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Ludicrous decision to send Ibrahimovic off for that. Oscar was just as bad, if not worse.
