How can he not be tactically prepared to feature in our attack? He’s been isolated in the U.S. for months now. Seems like he’d slot right in.
Is this one of those fox and chicken and boat puzzles? You can’t leave Lovren and the points together because Lovren will eat the points. But if Rodgers takes the points, then Lovren will feel too lonely doing stepovers with no one around. So Rodgers has to stay with Lovren, and you have use the Skrtel to get safely across the M62 while avoiding the Rooney troll…
I vote the officials for being instrumental in Liverpool getting 4 of their points in August.

What’s extraordinary and unique about Balotelli is that he’s a young man who is behaving more professionally and doing less stupid shit at age 25 than he did when he was college-aged. Truly remarkable stuff. I naturally give all of the credit to that contract Milan made him sign.
Low plays Can at RB, Rodgers is playing him at CM thus far this season, Can’s best position. By the transitive property Rodgers is the better manager and guarenteed to win a World Cup. Math doesn’t lie

I have no idea what to expect from match to match these days.* None whatsoever. During his tenure at LFC, we’ve seen dizzying heights alternating with the most abysmal lows. We’ve seen pragmatism and innovation punctuated by spells of what seemed like naiveté and obstinacy. We’ve seen the transfer equivalents of diamonds in the rough and we’ve seen cubic zirconia bought at diamond prices. We’ve seen one step forward, then one step back, then one step to the side, then one step to nowhere in particular. It’s like the Ministry of Silly Walks. BR must be a horrible dance partner.
Some degree of inconsistency is to be expected from anyone, let alone a still youngish manager. But I agree that we and FSG are at the point where we need to know, and I think FSG will use the (figurative) returns from this summer’s spending to decide whether they have The Real Thing or not in the manager’s seat.
*Except that Lovren will start.
*Except that Lovren will start.After last week. After last year at United. After last season’s first 15 games. After watching Ibe with his arm around Sakho from the bench on Saturday. After realizing that Sakho spends these 2 weeks at Melwood while Lovren is away with his national team.
I still would not be AT ALL surprised if Lovren starts at United.

It's always a win

At least we didn’t sell Sakho, Lucas, or Moreno.

arsenal have scored 3 goals, 2 of which were OGs by the other team.

flagged for pre fabricated taco shells. flagged for lemons instead of lime. flagged for disgusting ragu-esque pace picante sauce. flagged for taking an awesome rustic idea of serving on a wooden board and completely undermining it by goin all IKEA on the finish/style. flagged for guantanamo bay levels of sparse topping application. flagged misappropriating the culinary delight to texas.
Rec for correctly appropriating disgusting taco situation with Texas, which is a state that wouldn’t know a taco if it came up and bit it on the tip of its gulf coastline. YA I SAID IT AUSTIN. KEEP SIPPING THOSE PINK PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITAS AUSTIN.
