To be fair I want them to go bankrupt as well, so it's a mutual feeling. :pochunimpressed:
I do wonder why they mentioned us out of all clubs though.
If you look at the last decade, we are the team that displaced them in the top 4/6. The rest of the teams were/are already there and we are the new kids. That built the resentment over a long period.

Another thing that gets their goat is that they spent 150M on two players. We were lauded by one and all for having a team built on a shoe string budget under Poch. They like to think they are the grass roots of football but that they spent that much to bottle the league means they are really no different to City.

It is easier to hate on Spurs more than their traditional rivals because Manure have simply won more than them. You'll struggle to find a more insecure fanbase IMO. Just watch them eat each other alive in regards to who goes to games and who is actually from Liverpool.

From RAWK.

It's just completely baffling how people are quick to want to make this season null and void and ignore how next season will begin on time.

This was a reply...

It's only baffling if we overlook the clear agendas at work. Acknowledge the obvious agendas, and it makes perfect sense.

Funny enough, the ones who seem to be overlooking the global tragedy and endlessly banging on about football to excess are the ones who want to void it. Not because it's the right thing to do either. But because doing so would suit them, and a global catastrophe will be used by them in order to save themselves from their own mediocrity and failure. Basically, it's shameless opportunism on a grotesque level.

I agree with you and Jm55. As far as priorities are concerned, football is very low on the list just now for the overwhelming majority of people. I barely even think of the game itself at the moment, but it's still important to me. As Klopp said, it's the most important of the unimportant things just now. I'm not worried for myself, but I'm very concerned about vulnerable loved ones and vulnerable people in general just now. My anxiety levels are at a constant high, as they are for most other people out there.

Thing is, if this bastard virus was all we focused on then we'd be completely overwhelmed. Because of this, we also need to bring a little light relief into our day too. We need a positive focus outside of all the chaos and madness that is daily life in the current crisis. Viktor E. Frankl survived Auschwitz. He was a Psychiatrist in life before the war. He observed the mentalities and outlooks of those who escaped the 'selection process' and also survived Auschwitz. He found that the ones who used to look forward to all the little things they'd do once they were liberated tended to survive. Those who believed they were doomed, basically sealed their own fate by giving up.

The lesson I take from the above is that even in the face of unspeakable horror, your focus can also wander onto what would, in that situation, be seen as triviality. It's not an either/or situation. In fact, looking forward to positive, better days ahead can be what gets us through the very challenging present. Our daily worries are still very real and very challenging, and we do what we can to deal with them as best as we can, but without an outlet for the stress and anxiety, we'd implode mentally. Some will talk football, others cars, music, art etc... The list of 'trivialities' is endless, but they are important for our mental wellbeing.

Idiots will always delight in constructing a straw man that they can attack. For many, that straw man wears a Liverpool scarf, and is dismissive of the global tragedy unfolding all around him whilst he has nothing to worry over other than lifting a shiny pot. The reality is the straw man doesn't really exist. We are all worried, many are scared, and our priorities are negotiating our way through this horrific pandemic with our health and the health of our loved ones intact. Talking football is just a distraction just now, and acts as a safety valve more than anything else. It helps make some room in our heads for something other than worry and anxiety.

Funny really, I cut the lawn the other day, because it still matters. I marvelled at the night sky with a beautiful crescent moon rising with Venus shining above it. I felt happy after seeing our frog appear in the garden pond for the first time this year just the other night. You see, these things still matter, even if they are not No1 priority in life at the moment. Funny how I'm not getting criticised over that, but if, as a Liverpool fan, I talk about football and the title I'd be criticised for ''focusing on the trivial when we are facing a global crisis.''

When you give up on the little things, what have you got left in life? In dark times, looking forward to better days can get you through. Chances are, 95+% of our day is taken up with getting through this horrible mess. If we manage to distract ourselves for the other 5% then our mental wellbeing will benefit for it.

Let the morons go after the straw man all they want.
Is the frog 🐸 called Jurgen?

Oh, blimey!



RAWK not happy..
Something ironic about Liverpool fans complaining of others exploiting a tragedy...

... nah, can't quite put my finger on it.



It's also quite hilarious to see them rankle at a supposed 'agenda' against them (I'm not even going to go into how wrong that is in football coverage/punditry terms) whereas they used to always believe that the neutrals must love them/they must be everyone's second team.

If nothing else, their fanbase is quickly realising that literally everyone else cannot stand them and would be united as one to laugh at their misfortune.

I wouldn't put any money on it. I can't think of another football fan base that is so detached from reality. The sad thing is if you read dipper loving press articles it only feeds the delusion. They are easy clicks and the media know it.

They are playing with fire by spouting shit about the league being finished behind closed doors. Giving false hope to the deluded morons may come back to bite them in the arse later on. It isn't as if the dippers aren't above holding grudges against papers for decades.

On the plus side, maybe the deluded fucks realize that everyone fucking hates them and we'd rather see United win another 10 titles before Liverpool wins another.

But probably not.

I'm pretty certain I have the 'rona, I've got a temperature and a cough and I feel like utter gash, and Liverpool's idiot fans actually want to put themselves at risk, not to mention the players and club staff, because WEH WEH WEH WHAT ABOUT THE TITLE WE DESERVE IT.

The only people who want the season to continue are kopites and the media. Of course I'll get written off as a bitter bluenose cunt but tbf I'm past caring, sometimes I wish the FA would just give them the damn trophy just to shut them up.
So cruel. I think every team next season should give them a walk over 4-0 win every game....it's only fair?
We do that anyway.

Course you think that you daft twat, you lost the game

They weren't saying that before the game, indeed all the talk was how could Atletico dare to think they can win in the maelstrom that is A European Night At Anfield.

If the match had been played behind closed doors they would've winged about that!

Cunts.

Liverpool fans are bizarrely obsessed with Kane! anything Henderson does, they'll laud and ask "how on earth is the Mouth breething M0ng England captain when everyone in that dressing room knows Hendo's their real leader" they really detest him! it's hilarious.

Never forget that after Joe Gomez got booed on against Montenegro, Harry Kane called it a "perfect night" because he'd scored a hat-trick. He's a dickhead who's only interested in himself



Like, What? I've no idea where it all comes from. it's amusing that their go to slag is the classy as ever speech impediment that Kane has no control over. What legends!

it seems to be from the Stoke goal he claimed? or that he "dives" funny really cause Sturridge claimed a coutinho goal once and Mane and Salah go down easy. they've got cunts like Andy Robertson on their team.

Such a strange obsessed group.

They've got some nerve mocking the way anybody speaks anyway, I mean have they heard the average Scouser talk?!
