      Surely you can’t think that mate?

      It was 100% deliberate and done with intent. I’m not saying that because of the outcome or because I hate everton, I’m saying it as somebody who’s played football his entire life. 

      You do not leave the ground like that unless you want to seriously clatter your opponent. Not having anybody using the excuse of he’s a keeper and his job is to ‘make himself big’. He leapt three foot in the air and went in with his feet and scissored him.

      He might not have wanted to cause a bloody ACL injury but I’ve got no doubt what so ever he meant to clatter Virgil.

      Disgaree richarlisons was worse too. Both reckless but atleast richarlisons was an old fashioned 50-50 with the ball to be won. Pickfords was border-line assault.

      That is my take as well. If this was hockey the next game would be a bloodbath.

      Carra in his desperation to come across as a unbiased commentator has gone down in my estimation in his backing of Pickford.
      Almost screaming at Souness yesterday on Sky.....

      Easy to do that through a screen, would not have done it in person.

      I do yeah

      And I'm.ssying it also as someone who played for 25 years

      F***ing awful technique but not intentional

      Agree with Carra on it. He used his tackle on Nani as a tackle with intent to hurt and he didnt think Pickfords was either and I agree with him

      Richarlison far worse in my opinion (as someone who played cm for 25 years too) as the whole thing was in front of him

      Ultimately the only person who knows is pickford so I guess we will all just have to agree to disagree on it

      And again for the record I'm not defending  him whatsoever

      He deserved  a red

      A scissor kick challenge is beyond reckless it endangers the safety of a fellow professional, so premeditated or not makes no difference



      We definitely don't have a leg to stand on after Kuyt's challenge at the tip!!

      I’m sure Kuyt went in thigh high against Everton or was that Gerrard..?

      I’ve seen the vid of the tackle a few times now & Prickford goes for the ball initially but once he realised he won’t make it he decided to take Virgil out deliberately in my opinion..

      That was Kuyt

      He deserved  a red

      It was absolutely intentional based on his positioning at the time, his tackling style, height of tackle, and Virgins position at the time he was on the byline not charging at him with the ball head on. I can’t be arsed looking for the images but remember it clearly, have a look at his follow through after saving the ball from a Mandzukic shot in the semi of the WC.

      Followed by a get up “you Fukn tw*t” he’s an utter little c**t.

      I think he probably meant to clatter into Virgil but I don't think he wanted to injure Virgil, in any case it should have been a straight Red.

      Virgil doesn't even play that side.

      Paul Merson just said without a hint of sarcasm or irony that the Richarlison 'tackle' on Thiago wasn't a red card offence because he tried to pull out.

      Time he went as well as the other old boys who got the chop on soccer saturday.

      He should of been put out to pasture in 2007 or 2008 when he pissed himself laughing at the thought of us beating Barca.

      Just another in a long line of thick cliche ridden southerner footballers who sky employ for some fu**ed up reason. See Jamie Redknapp, Joe Cole, Tony Gale, Tony Cascarino. Offer nothing but sh*t cliches and a tired view on football.

      Just reading through these last posts.

      Are these cu*ts for real ? They just spout what sounds like tactical nouse without looking at how we play.
      Clearly bullshitting their way to a decent pay cheque.
      About time they were pulled up on the spot and asked to explain their comments. If they can’t come up with a viable explanation, Chuck em out !
      Regular fans on the street have more current knowledge than these tests.

      It's not so much the actual match commentary more like after match analysis or stuff on Soccer Saturday, everything they spout is just tired old cliched bollocks.

      The majority of the sh*te is affected commentary  and when there is a neutral pundit calling it like it is he is talked down by the other bullshitters.
      We all know the rules mate and played a bit of footie so can form an opinion without the bollox from jaundiced commentators being paid to sensationalise.

      Souness having a pop at Mo for diving. I mean when Mo & Sadio take their boots off..their toes are like artichokes, they've been stomped on that much...and Souness is complaining just because Mo lost his balance. Liverpool players DO NOT DIVE...they just lose their balance..

      in fairness, it was kind of a dive from Mo, but that is the game nowadays, Mo would be an idiot if he didn't go down. I think Souness was more bemoaning the fact that that kind of tap on the shoe is given as a foul rather than having a pop at Mo.

      Rat Boy having another pop at Ole. Just because he played for them he talks as if he automatically knows what's best for United. Ditto Roy Keane. Just total knowalls. Keane says "time to panic"....got steam coming out of his ears..doesn't take much to wind him up..."I'm surrounded by idiots.."

      Think Ole is doing a fine job. He's getting good results..sometimes. So lay off the man, give him space to do the job. Little bit inconsistent but he is 3 pts from going on a run.
