Guess they aren't the juggernaut we all thought.
Eliminated from the Champions League by Atletico Madrid.
Liverpool clinched the title with Chelsea beating City last night. I had a drink to celebate. Finally after 30+ years of watching sports religiously I have a team that finally won a title.
It is a really weird time to win a championship with so much going on.
Liverpool have a lot of records to play for, clinching a few already along the way.
Liverpool have started out the season well enough, except for the fact that 4 players have tested positive. (already scrubbed the 7-2 drubbing)
Tsimikas, Thiago, and Mane all testing positive with now Keita testing. Could be as many as 5 if Shaqiri's false positive is actually a positive test.
I have no clue why with everything going on that LFC didn't prevent all players from going away on INTL duty.
Because they can't. It may seem counter-intuitive, but the club has nothing to say about the player going off on international duty. It's up to the player and the country. They can express strong opinions--especially when the player is injured--but that's all they can do. There's been many a row between club and country over this very issue.
VAR is rightly getting blasted over the Merseyside darby. Not only did Pickford dangerously tackle Van Dijk and tear his ACL, he didn't even get called a foul over it.
Top that with dis-allowing a goal that was clearing onside and costing the team 2 points and the share of 1st place.
Man, this one stings so hard.
Oh, that was an epic crap show. I saw the whole game. Can't count the number of ways Liverfool got hosed. Oh, damn, it's a torn ACL? Wow. He should AT LEAST have gotten a red card after the game by the panel, should Pickford.
