If this keeps up, we can start the youngsters from the beginning of March, which obviously is amazing in a developmental sense. What I meant however is I've now waited since 1990 for a title, for many years thinking it would never again happen in my time, and now this, which is...fantastic, without precedent, quite literally unbelievable. I'm an entitled middle-aged tosser though, so I want to have my cake and eat it: I wish there was a title fight (obviously, I realise this is very much a first world problem...). Also, I feel slightly uneasy at suddenly winning every trophy in sight. It just doesn't feel right, you're supposed to battle for trophies. We don't, we just piss on everyone. I don't even know what I want to say anymore, we're preparing a huge fuck-off trophy party here and it will be spectacular, but it just seems...too easy. Argh. Give me guidance, fellow forum dwellers, I need it. I don't really know what I feel...Yes and no. I'd like us to start next season playing much more fluently once this psychological burden has been taken off their minds. I want to skip to August in a way to see if they can do exactly that.
just Googled it........looks pretty fucking amazing....WOTM: my missus, for surprising me with a visit to the two Michelin starred Hélène Darroze at The Connaught this evening. When she said that we were going out to dinner, I was fuming; when we got there, I was delighted. Any fans of French haute cuisine should give it a go; the hake with black pudding and Jerusalem artichoke is one of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten.
I was taking the piss at the time, but this isn't so inconceivable anymore.Yup, no need to throw the CL. By my calculations, we'll be 26 points ahead by the time the knock out rounds start.
It’s obviously pretty expensive (some would say obscenely so) but it really must be experienced. I’d put it ahead of the three star Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, personally.just Googled it........looks pretty fucking amazing....
Should we plan on dining there when I visit?Never in doubt.
Finally got round to watching the match and it was a typical Liverpool 2019-20 performance: nothing spectacular but just enough to win the game. No frills; no fuss; three points.
Alisson did very well yesterday. A string of solid saves helped maintain our advantage; you get the feeling that we only need to score two goals to win a game these days as, although we may concede from a penalty or a deflected shot, no team is going to beat Mr Becker twice.
No idea how anybody could argue with the penalty decision; Origi was clearly taken out by Diop, who was nowhere near the ball. Any handball by Bobby was negligible and certainly not a clear refereeing error. Mo’s conversion of the subsequent spot kick wasn’t entirely convincing but it hit the back of the net and that’s all that matters.
Our defence was, as always, solid and it was a welcome return to form for Robbo after a couple of below par performances, although he could have done much better when played through on goal midway through the first half. Trent was lucky to get away with that ricochet after Alisson’s save but he knew nothing about it and would have been most unfortunate had it been an own goal.
The midfield was typically efficient and Ox took his goal well, brushing aside Lanzini’s feeble challenge and finishing with aplomb. Let’s hope that he’s on his way back. Keïta looked lively when he came on but Fabinho, somewhat understandably, still looked rusty after his lay off.
Salah was back to somewhere near his best, full of flicks and tricks; looks like Jürgen has had a word with him, as Mo was far more inclined to look for his teammates today. Bobby wasn’t at his brilliant best but still posed the Hammers’ defence plenty of problems, while Big Div is slowly working his way back to form; he should peak somewhere around the Champions League semi-finals.

But it's a neat encapsulation of their superiority -- both in this game specifically, but over the season more generally -- that Jurgen Klopp's biggest concern essentially boiled down to Liverpool being so good and so dominant that they could become bored and lose concentration during the game.
as good as a vegemite and cheese sanga?It’s obviously pretty expensive (some would say obscenely so) but it really must be experienced. I’d put it ahead of the three star Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, personally.
Save up for a special occasion and give it a go. You won’t be disappointed!
