Two rounds of games in quick succession this coming week with midweek games following the weekend schedule. I’ll get the midweek predictions list up by the end of this week too. Big one this weekend needs no introduction. Looking forward to to Saturday evening!23rd November 2017 at 7:14 am #7841

That has doomed City, just forecast them to win!!!!!24th November 2017 at 7:18 am #7859
Naturally Pool vs the Chav’s should be the pick of the week (going for a Chav win if anybody is interested) but I’m actually looking forward to the Burnley vs Goon Show on Sunday, especially after the Goonies rather dismal showing last night in the Europa league. Based on hope more than anything but I fancy a draw there!
On another note, how many Friday night home games have the Spammers had? That’s three already this season, isn’t it?24th November 2017 at 8:48 pm #7871
This ain’t a bad game tonight, Foxes certainly started off better but the Spammers really got back into it and deservedly got an equalizer right before half-time. Quite looking forward to the second half.25th November 2017 at 9:08 am #7873
Looks like I’m the only one to go for a Liverpool win in the later game today. I really can’t see Liverpool losing this one at home but I’ve been wrong before!25th November 2017 at 9:12 am #7875

Can’t see Liverpool winning ed. Chelsea far to drilled and organized. Very good team. They know how to defend and are lethal on the break. Such a well balanced side. Don’t think we have beaten them at home since 2012
I’d take a draw now. Even if we went 2-0 every team knows they have a chance of getting back in the game. Our game management is a shambles25th November 2017 at 9:39 am #7876
Yeah I agree with all that Sean. Chelsea should really be winning this. Their strength is Liverpool’s achilles heel but Liverpool just seem to have a knack of pulling out a performance against the big sides when least expected to. They may not win, granted. But I can’t see them losing at home25th November 2017 at 4:17 pm #7881
Nice sportsmanship from YooUtd there, allowing Brighton to fight for the ball for 30 seconds so they could kick it out for their own player to get treatment, then allowing themselves to keep possession in the oppo’s half by throwing to themselves and continuing play…. quality sportsmanship there!!25th November 2017 at 4:24 pm #7882
And then they score with a jammy deflection from a corner that wasn’t a corner… while 24incher is literally kicking a Brighton defender… damn… how do they get away with it?

Well I was almost right on the late game until that late goal, Sean! Good result that for the rest of the pack in and around the CL spots. Top 4 impossible to call this season25th November 2017 at 8:32 pm #7888
If City win their game tomorrow, I am afraid a one-horse race!25th November 2017 at 9:12 pm #7889

In the context of battling for a CL place I’m happy with the draw, Anfield is a tough place to go at the best of times and a lot tougher with a 5:30pm Saturday evening kick off after a circa 6 hour flight from Baku and not getting home until 6am on Thursday morning.25th November 2017 at 10:00 pm #7890
A lot of work commitments of late to focus on football, and really only watched properly the second half. First of all: Lallana is a little up his own back side; I mean, who was that to on the left hand-side after coming on. I had high hopes for this fella, but he’s just milking it on the back of the better players who are of genuine quality. I know it’s an injury and all the rest of it, but he is just annoying.
As for the result, I’m not too downbeat, but annoyed; why the hell is Anfield even a Library? Don’t they want to ‘be up for this game’? For heaven’s sake: Chelsea are ONE of our rivals point blank.
Unless we’re sort of like 5-0 up against the more determined opposition, there is a certainty we will crumble. That was just one great lob over the keeper – not really his fault, but just a wonderful finish. I really hate that guy because he played his part in (or forever will remind me in rubbing his nose to damage us winning the League Championship).
Salah is doing too much meaning that we really should have an Ian Rush, and/or a Robbie Fowler, but we simply don’t.
2 points dropped in a game we should have won. I love Jurgen, but purely and simply, this isn’t good enough and I’m really fed up and sick to the back teeth of settling for second best.
We are devoid of some serious good and proper 5-0, 6-0, even 7-0 routers, honestly: If the Model of us are ‘Gun-Ho’ then quite simply, we should be bulleting teams.
