    Now, Lost was also overrated, even if it did have Evengleineiaiainniineena Lilly in it…

    I think they call it a ripple effect, Chucks 🙂 Another unpopular thread to counter this.

    Cool mate, was just fooling around; We agreed on something though re Friends.

    I didn’t know you stuck it out in the UK that long.

    Silly-Willy-Nilly, had a misses who loved it, was force-fed it until my eyes started bleeding…

    27, there you go, don’t own a Beatles record (loved the car mind you!), never owned one, got over 12,000 songs on my iTunes, and not a single Beatle track at all… just don’t get it…

    Can’t speak for the Beatles; must be a thing in the 60s but having done some research, I probably would liked to have spent some time there if I had a Time Machine.

    Oasis I pray that would reform everyday. I always liked them, never really paid any attention till Liam Sang a Solo a couple of years or so ago when Manchester held a tribute concert for all those lives tragically lost in the bombing.

    I was delighted a couple of weeks ago to get hold of 2 brand new copies of Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story Morning Glory, Remastered on CD all for a Tenner 🙂

    60’s?? That was before Liverpool were good, right?? 🙂

    And 10 quid for two Oasis CD’s?? You paid about 9 quid too much, although I suppose a quid for two new shiny beer coasters isn’t too bad…

    Chucks, didn;t you point out to me 58 years the other day? 😀 Tottenham actually won something 😛 😉

    This one could well be unpopular but after shelling out on a Nice new CD deck, I have gone back to buying CD’s from scratch, and all The Originals too.

    Just need a nice new Graphic Equalizer or one of those new Surround Sound Bluetooth speakers with PA style sound 🙂

    This is an odd one because it may appear to actually be a popular opinion but let me explain.

    David Beckham was a great player.

    Unpopular because, amongst real football fans I believe the majority don’t think he was very good and that the celebrity status was unwarranted in relation to his ability. I mean he was the famous player in the world. Was he the best player in the world? No. But IMO he is better than most real football fans gave him credit for. Case in point, playing himself back into that star studded Real side after the super strict Cappello froze him out.

    Utd, Real, Milan, PSG. Played for some of the world’s absolute top sides and never once looked out of place. Not as naturally talented as many but in terms of making the most of his ability through sheer hard work, he was a great IMO.

    His performance in that game against Greece for England including the last minute free kick is still the best single performance in an England shirt for many years imo.

    agree Ed. Always liked Beckham. More gifted then people gave him
    Credit

    Beautiful right foot.

    I always liked him because he never Moaned. He just got on with it. Never said anything bad about Fergie and still refers to him
    As boss.

    This not a popular opinion ion but it’s one I’ve stayed a few times.

    I think Klopp will leave Liverpool
    Without a trophy.

    Nothing to do with the man. More about ciry are going to do dominate the league as long as pep is there.

    We are always so near yet so far. It’s been a very good season but yet again we will end it trophyless and for me it’s so disappointing as it’s the only thing missing from
    A fantastic reign

    We just can’t get over the line? Why is that?

    We are unfortunate in my opinion.

    Any other season the league be over with our points tally yet we are up againest the brilliant city

    Cl final our best player gets injured
    Pl
    5 years ago our best player slips

    Klopp has lost his last 6 finals. The club their last 4.

    From a lfc fans point of view it be tragic if Klopp leaves trophyless as it’s the best team we have had in decades. He’s put together a fabulous side that night achieve nothing

    The Beatles are the foundation of so much music including Oasis. But my daughter in law doesn’t get it either which is why she’s not allowed in the house.😊

    Sean, I won’t pretend that this isn’t something that i have in the back of my mind. You could be right but not for a second have you thought that he might be fired, so as long as this continues, then he’s doing well enough.

    I don’t need (necessarily) Klopp to win anything to think of him as a success in most ways. Of course though it would then become some great tragedy, for him to develop our team in an honestly incredible fashion…. But I don’t think the project is even in fruition yet. As I said in the other thread, I don’t think we’ve peaked and have a ways to go still.

    I have argued in the past that we have more potential than City. This was at a time when they were expected to be 15-20 points ahead of us now but I still think the same. I could be wrong but City ewon’t break any records this year. We will break our own records. The curve is still going up for us and I hope we’ve a big summer ahead, even if we hear there won’t be one.

    I guess we’ll see. We’ve come close to the CL now 2 years in a row and we’ve come close to the PL now. If there isn’t some huge deflation after this season (near misses can hurt projects) then I’m confident we’ll be a better team this time next season.

    Sean I think you are right, for all the good Klopp has done at LFC it’s just bad luck who we are up against.
    I know mine is an unpopular opinion but I think football is simply dominated by money, there is absolutely zero loyalty from players & fans are the only ones with any attachment to clubs.
    I have bleated about city many times & whilst I do admit they weren’t dominant until Pep took over, the fact is if they didn’t have the money to simply outspend everyone they would not be so dominant. FFP stopped others just getting a sugar daddy as well & competing with their financial muscle so they had a massive head start by assembling the most expensive squad ever. Everyone else is playing catch up & they just have to add a couple of worldies to their already huge squad & they will stay ahead of the rest. As I said not many agree & that’s fine with me but nothing will change my views on this & I fully expect city to boringly win the EPL for the next couple of seasons at least. IMO they have bought titles but I suppose that’s what football is these days, just like most sports & is the reason I don’t really care to much about sports these days.
    Anyhow back to the preparation for my winter hibernation.
