  1. No Shane Long, no Anelka. WBA hardly have a chance in this game, or in the league for that matter. Who’s going to score for them?

  2. I’d love it if Pulis has plucked a new throw in expert from Palace reserves to unleash on Whinger and his gnomes.

  3. If yu are man united fun go to bed don’t watch it your dream of top four finish w’ll be over. a win today for liverbool your struggling team w’ll be 9 points behind liverbool in the race of the top four.

    1. Sure, I’ll bite. Chico Flores over-reacted as he tends to do, which I don’t like. But Carroll I thought deserved a yellow card for purposely intending to lash out at Flores, which he did make contact however minimal it was (see video at

      Carroll did a similar but worse foul earlier in the game which should have resulted in a yellow card, which Webb didn’t give. So based on two yellow card-worthy incidents in the match, Carroll’s sending off was just.

      1. I haven’t seen it but the Londoncentric media seem to be saying a rescindment is a foregone conclusion.

        I wonder if Flores will get the keys to the pink Ferrari again?

    1. Ian
      my Boys held serve win against the sides they are suppose to beat. Derby drew yesterday so picked up points on the sheep.

  4. What an awful performance from Liverpool. These guys have zero killer instinct. They didn’t even look like they cared when West Brom evened the score. Sloppy and slow.

  5. I love the incredible backdrops that NBCSN are using in studio when the talent is talking — like the live footage of Emirates Stadium that fills up all of the background.

  6. Liverpool need to keep winning or Suarez will go off the boil and get suspended for something stupid (like he has the last two years.) He’s a great player but I get the feeling he’s a few match losses away from losing his rag. If Liverpool don’t make the CL, he’s a goner, new contract or not.

    1. It’s working for me with no problem. Although that may have been confused with Brendan Rodgers blacking out, not the TV signal.

    1. Early days. If he keeps us up I will be happy. Lomas was taking us straight down. He’s tried to reverse the damage with some decent signings. He won’t get another job in the top flight so hopefully he sticks around.

    1. Yep, he is quality. While we are at it , an honorable mention for Steve Bower. I’m obviously sad that Rebecca has stolen for the rubbish Olympics but Mr Bower did not miss a beat. Excellent host.
