The situations aren't comparable. Ranieri was 17th and the team hadn't scored for six matches. Pochettino is mid-table, still in contention in the Champions League, there is no threat to Tottenham's immediate future.

I don't get why Liverpool are so bothered, admittedly they've a lot of games but the Club World Cup is a series of glorified friendlies for any European side, we don't view it the same way South Americans do, for example. Just send the bloody ressies and stop moaning.

I have Brazilian friends who love to remind me about the times their teams have beaten Liverpool et al in these games. They can’t seem to comprehend that English clubs don’t care in the slightest.

I thought VAR was there to review games as they went along, so why has it taken two days to rescind the red for Son? It's meant eradicate errors that lead to the teams being at a disadvantage due to poor refereeing decision. We should no longer have games where player are or aren't sent off when they should or shouldn't be. Tottenham have played a chunk of that game with 10 men and possibly cost the a win.

I think Tottenham appealed yesterday so they've reviewed it today.

And it was an independent panel so no prem league or FA interference - otherwise I bet they would have kept the sanction.

Liverpool are having to play 2 separate teams in the Club World Cup and the EFL Cup against Villa. 

 

 Could be very good news for our Boxing Day fixture...

 

Just had a look and it looks highly likely they will play the Mexican side Monterrey in the Semi Final. Good news for us as they'll probably play a weaker side against Villa in the League Cup and hopefully they'll play the final a few days before coming to Leicester to play our Boxing Day fixture.

Interesting to see what team goes to Qatar. Think we'll benefit most if all or their main first team players go there..

 

Surely they won’t though.

Did Neville really manage that many games?? I thought he was only there a few months.

It was early December to late March.

So what you're saying is, if Poch gets them in the relegation zone (🤞), then they'll sack him and he'll get a nice payoff.

Surely they will. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised that they are under contract to send at least five champions League finalists.

 

Liverpool have to dance to their world audience, not just Oadby's Sikh community

Isn’t poch going to get something like 30 mil if they sack him? 

Yes. Levy thought he could get a fee of this size if they decided to allow him to move to another club so that is the “buyout” in his recently signed contract  . As he seems likely to get the push they will have to pay up and a prospective employer will get him for nothing . So a 60 mill hit for the spuds ! ( if he’s sacked which I’m guessing he won’t be(

On the Liverpool two games....

 

I've heard before that in 93/94 we played both on 27 Dec and 28 Dec. 

 

4-4 at home to Watford and then 3-2 defeat to Derby. 

 

Wikipedia supports this, just wondered if anyone remembers that or went to the games or if it is definitely accurate?

I also went to the Watford game, I have absolutely no recollection of the anomaly though!

Being greedy then. He wanted big money for eriksen and Toby and they will end up going for free while also playing like crap. Can’t see to many teams going for poch at the min either so they either have to stick and hope they turn there season around or pay the money. Hoping it goes the way of keeping him and they slowly slide into the relegation zone. Would be a nice stadium for championship teams to visit 😂
