Premier League Thread 2018/19 stuff it in here.

Recommended Posts

People talk about Man City's spending as if Liverpool have only spent pennies and as if its some fairytale that they've pushed Man City so close. Quite naive when you think about it.

I cannot for the life of me see where there is a foul committed by Ritchie on fabhino! Shocking decision from the linesman. Do the FA want Liverpool to win the league?

Their nett spend is pretty good compared to crude oil fc, Russian gas fc and fanbase debt cover fc

Now it is impossible for Leicester to finish 7th and Man city to win the league. Sorry Mancs.

Now we are coming to the dying embers of 2018/19 season,though there still some sparks left to poke and stoke up....

 

I just want to say...I am already looking towards next season...We will now have it seems some clubs who  to want to give us a run

For our money,and want to prove its them that are worthy to take the Also-ran-top-spot....or even compete with us for an hopeful

top 4-6 spot!!!I

So..Everton,Wolves,Watford,Newcastle,W.Ham..enjoy your summerbreak....plus Chelsea,Arsenal,Manutd,Spurs ,look behind you,

It could be >you <  missing out on the coconut-shy!!! No matter how many more goes you might have thought you paid for!!

I was just thinking the same. Rather than being "already on the beach" we are seeing a cluster of teams locking into fine form at this late stage, Evertons last 6 or 7 games, Wolves  losing that bit of inconsistency, West Ham finally coming good, Watford managing a good whole season (they often start well but dip after the new year) and ourselves showing the form many of us felt we were capable of.

 

Wolves look ominously good, Everton look less likely to go and get "silly results" as they have previously done, so seventh next season appears more difficult than it has been for a few years. We'll be up for it, a lot depends on how all of us clubs in that part of the table retain our best players but right now it's like a grand prix starting line where the cars of different colours are all looking impressive, shining under the sun, revving up to go, the last thing I really want is a three month break right now.

 

Whoever finishes 8th can claim to be the best side in the league to not have the distraction / burden of European games next season, and I believe that club has the chance to jump one or two further places because of that. It'll be so tight that every little detail will matter, so if we're fresh and Wolves have played FC Sporting Veredafuxat on a thursday we have a better chance of a good weekend performance. 

 

It's debatable whether there is ground to make up on Wolves, had we been managed properly all season and played on the front foot utilising our world class centre forward I'm confident we'd be in a better position than we are but I'll say it again they are very good and have done as well as any newcomers could be expected to. It's no accident, they know what they are doing, they are the real deal.

 

Whilst watching 6 trying to squeeze into 4 places albeit with the alternative factor that is qualifying via Europa League victory has been fun, adding a twist by seeing our group of clubs bite their tails next time would be even better, those six have boardroom pressure to be up there, you can see the fear in their eyes when it comes down to the wire, I don't see such fear in us or Wolves, just expressive football, bridging those last ten points or so from 6th to 7th would really make this a great league.

Guys...we can still win both games and Liverpool can still eff the title up against Wolves.

 

I know that’ll take 7th away but if we could finish the season with beating Arsenal, Man City (somehow?!) and Chelsea, that would be so encouraging for next season. Especially when you consider what we did the last time we finished a season with serious momentum.

As @st albans fox said their net spend is still huge for the last 5 seasons but considerably less than Man City by 360 mill and 6th in the Premier League and (only?)60 Mill more than us in 5 seasons.

Not wanting to sound like a Liverpool lover but I’m dealing with facts.

we’re going to finish either 8th or 9th. there is literally no difference. our season is over, i’d struggle to care too much about our result at this stage of a normal season, let alone a season where our result could give liverpool the title. 

 

us finishing 9th and them finishing 2nd is at least 8 billion times more preferable than us finishing 8th and them finishing 1st. 

 

so so obviously i want us to lose. not sure what is so hard for people to understand, here. 

Best joke I have heard in years ??

Of man city win the league we get a extra 5m from the Mahrez transfer.

 

If we win and liverpool win the league we lose out on 5M.

We win for ourself every game no matter who it is or who benefits from us winning. To want us to lose is a joke. We won the league 3 years ago and it seems some have stayed on the band wagon well get the F*** off it now.

That Fabinho 'foul' has royally pissed me off actually.

 

Liverpool fans were up in arms when he fouled Messi and they claimed that wasn't a foul, yet he does that and obviously Fabinho isn't gonna get called out by him but it just smacks of typical hypocrisy from them.

 

Like seriously, where the fvck is the foul?! Ritchie does nothing wrong and yet Fabinho somehow has the ground from swept under him and feels the need to dive. Properly frustrates me how they get away with shit like that.

We'll said my Bedford brother

Could care less about the title race. We're doing it for us.

 

Just want to take it to the Mancs, give them a challenge, and hopefully get ourselves a point or maybe three. We have given them trouble in the past, so let's keep at it and hope Jamie hits 20.

 

The last two games should be about finishing on a high, and giving something for the others to think about come the off-season. If we get 7th, great! If not, at least try and make a statement.

 

This is a chance to showcase ourselves, give reason to believe that we will carry on the good form for next season.

But then we get a difference in prize money too for a higher position, we win and Liverpool win the league

I may be wrong but I believe there was actually a foul committed slightly before all the clips show. Fabinho stays on his feat so an advantage of sorts is played, Fabinho then dives and the lineman flags for the earlier offence.

The match officials/UK media, UK football establishment wants Liverpool to win the title. Liverpool can do nothing wrong, they cheat because they know they can get away with it! 

How to sound like a bitter verminous spud in one post.

I tend to agree.  The other thing I would point out is that Liverpool are a genuinely massive club built up over generations. 

 

Man City are an artificially massive club.  Really, they have no right to be were they are or to spend the transfer money that they have.  Just dumb luck.

Yea let's just have Manchester United or Liverpool winning the league year after year after year after year.  

 

We were an absolute disgrace winning it in 2016.  How dare we rock the boat and upset the 'genuinely massive clubs'.  I'm sorry Premier League.

Newcastle don't belong in the same sentence as Everton, Leicester and Wolves. But regardless, look at the state of Man Utd. How the mighty have fallen.

 

 

That bloke is so far out of his depth it's unreal. If they start the season with him we'll come above them. They'll start even worse than this year.

they've generated their money through being Liverpool though, haven't had the funding of one of the worst countries going.

Nice rant, but you're not quite understanding what I am saying.  lol

 

When we won it we did it under our own steam.  Our first team cost £25m, so I'm not sure how you managed to infer that I am criticising our own title win.  That is literally the opposite of what I am saying.  :facepalm:

 

The title really shouldn't be any of Man City's business but they are up there by pure luck.  They won the ownership lottery.  Having the title gift wrapped and  bought for you makes it less of an achievement in my eyes.  What happened to Man City could have happened to any club.

If we were to batter Man City I'd be chuffed, more likely a draw because I cant see us doing the double over them but what ever happens, I want us to do our best and Liverpool can mess it up however they like.
