      The Kop / Re: Jürgen Klopp - LFC Manager - 2018/19 Edition
      « Last post by Robby The Z on Today at 02:42:58 am »
      Watching the post-match show tonight of the Copa America match between Uruguay and Chile (on Telemundo, an American Spanish-language network that uses commentators mostly from Central and South America). Now, I've noticed the intensity and the tempo of these games has been more enjoyable than in past versions of the event (and I say that as someone who likes football from South America). Now, my Spanish is far from perfect, but there was a bit on just  now where they were showing a lot of highlights from the 18 group stage matches played through tonight and they were pointing out how many of the teams were employing some form or another of a press. The lead commentator, if he said it once he said it 10 times, would break in as the clips were being played with "Liverpool y Klopp"

      I know Jürgen didn't invent the idea of a press, but I think he has developed it and applied with such effect he qualifies as a tactical visionary who is proving to be remarkably influential in the world game (my country's national team - USA - is trying to do it as well, but has a long way to go). It's great to see him get his due for this from that part of the world. He's more than just a motivator.

      I had never noticed how Virgil falls down on the floor after Origi scores. Oh I'm a mess watching this. What a moment that goal was. So sweet.

      It was so good. Also love the very end where Allison is calling someone on video, sitting on the pitch and holding up his medal. How great a feeling that must be.

      Summer Transfer Board / Re: General Transfer rumours/gossip thread

      Used to look at anfieldhq (Oliver Bond) twitter for transfer news, as I’ve seen a number of people use this site as a link too as used to seem pretty decent where transfer news was concerned. That changed when he started posting stuff that was coming from the shitrag and now he has been called out by Robbo for posting bollocks. Can add this to the time he was called out by Pearce for posting things from the Echo and passing it off as his own.

      So basically, any transfer news from this clown, give it a swerve.

      General Football Forum / Re: Rafa to leave Newcastle

      he is on a good payout regardless of what he does football clubs in the EPL just keep going up in value. He is exactly what is wrong with football he doesn't like the game and hates the Fans but not as much they hate him

      In some ways Ashley’s methods are ironically reminiscent of Rafa’s time under H&G at Anfield where he faced an uphill battle to win anything in spite of the owners.
      Our man no doubt thought this sh*t is not good for my health or sanity - I’m outa here.

      The West Ham game is the only league game that has to be rearranged.

      It's controversial if people make it so. The vast majority of VAR decisions will be clearly obvious and indisputable. It's the minority of 50-50 calls where only one decision can be made, that will create headlines.

      How long it takes or how it affects the flow of the game is not really relevant. That already happens. Players slowing down set pieces etc. Apparantly, 8 minutes are already lost per game waiting for these to be taken. 3 minutes are lost over subs. Then you have the Kepas of the world, who act out their "injuries". All of it is accepted as part of the game. So will VAR. The only difference is that VAR only recognises refereeing errors, not professional time wasters.

      Think it goes without saying that disputable decisions will be the main cause controversy. I mean how many Refs will refer a decision they have already made and how many will change their decision once they have looked at it on the moniter.

      The time it takes for VAR to come to a decision or for the ref to view the incident on the moniter is relevent. That was one of the main concerns surrounding VAR.

      Current time wasting or delays are a seperate issue.
