      What would you prefer, a yellow card or a goal against?

      It’s one of them that sucks if it’s done against you, but can’t help but smile about if you are the ones doing it. We won so just chill out and enjoy it. Or think about how Atkinson is the VAR for the Derby, that will take your mind off the goal today ;)

      Wow, this knocks some sense into my head! Too desperate to win the league that me and me mates will not celebrate till the war is won. Have I been too hard on meself? Perhaps I need to see Dr Steve Peters before I turn crazy!

      Give it up man, your wrong , it's not up to the ref to get ready is it, Adrian should have been set, he had yelled to the wall where he wanted it positioned, the Kunt that is Atkinson blew his whistle and Dunk took his opportunity,  we got caught out mate get over it, sh*t happens, we move on, lessons learnt,
      We still won, we are still top of the f***in league,  we're still unbeaten and we're still going to be Champions, and Martin Atkinson still  is and always will be a Kunt.

      Merry Syphilis and a Happy Gonhorrhea.

      Reading some of the comments here, fvking bunch of Fannie’s

      If ref does not tell the person taking the kick to wait for his whistle than kicker can take quick kick by letting the ref know he ready to do so and ref blows.
      Our mistake was not to put a man in front of the ball until our wall was ready

      Fouls and free kicks !
      I’ve always thought if you’re fouled, the free kick is awarded to give you back the advantage you may have had prior to the foul.
      If you take the kick quickly to maintain that advantage, good job I say. With a wall of defenders being set up in front of the free kick, the advantage is pretty much taken away.
      Players were stopped from standing over the ball to prevent quick free kicks a few seasons ago. That in itself is a bookable offence now. It was introduced so a free kick could be taken quickly if required.
      I don’t have a problem with it, we just got caught cold. Should have been more aware of the issues around us.
      Also while on the subject. A player gets fouled, gets awarded a free kick, but has to go off the field for treatment. So where’s the advantage when your sides down to 10 men because you’ve been hacked down. A real advantage would be, if an injured player, due to foul play, has to leave the field for treatment. The player committing the foul should also have to leave the field  for the same amount of time at least. Possibly with an extra couple of minutes added as well.
      This is my unbiased opinion but I still think Atkinson is a bias anti red
      Official who is a disgrace, and should be removed from football at any level.
      What he does is akin to sabotage in any other role in the workplace.

      What lesson is learned, is it that the keeper can't set the wall in future and has to stand rooted to his spot in expectation of the referee can blow his whistle at any random moment? It's nonsense and does not happen in any other sport.

      Yeah not sure what we were supposed to do in that situation really. Stand over the ball it's a yellow. Atkinson up to mischief IMO.

      Xabi Alonso used to take our free kicks quickly for balls awarded around the middle of the pitch. Nothing wrong with it. Objectively speaking, we took too long. It was just clever play. Those who oppose should recognize that we've been caught out and move on. If we had scored in this manner, the word clever would be all over this board. So yeah, credit where it's due. We got three points that's the most important thing.

      I see a man taking one for his team to keep a clean sheet but was unfortunately undone by a quick free kick.

      Haven't read through all the comments yet but I'm not sure why Adrian seemed to stop when that free kick was taken, had he dove I think he'd have stopped it, that said he made some good saves afterwards. Shouldn't complain really, what a position we're in...

      Look at it again,  and i mean look proper,  when said Kunt sprays his line it's game on, watch our players, none are watching the ball, Mane has is back to the ball, Gini is behind our non wall, Adrian in his defence is screaming for the wall to move right, but at the same time Dunk is by the ref, asking if he can take the kick, Adrian is still by his left stick, so when Kunt blows his whistle Dunk slots it in the corner, 
      We got done mate, pure and simple,  sh*t we've done it ourselves in the past most notably Trent V Barca, it's down to quick thinking by Dunk and us  being lackadaisical ,
      The lesson learnt is to be more vigilant from now on at set pieces around our box and perhaps being more organised.

      On Wednesday, Everton will feel free to make two-footed lunges about knee high on our boys, or maybe dumping our players over the advertising boards with no penalty (oh wait...).

      It reminded me of a couple of seasons ago when Luiz (with Chelsea then) hit a free kick from distance and Simon Mignolet was still talking to his wall. I suppose the question yesterday is because a sub was being made and sometimes you'll see the referee let the incoming player get set, like on a corner. Atkinson could have done that, but this wasn't a corner and our player was allowed to get into position before the free kick was taken. We were just too leisurely about setting up.

      Backing Adrian to play a stormer in keeping a clean sheet vs. the Blues!

      So we equal our longest unbeaten run set after a 1-1 draw at Derby in 1988. The next opponent after that, was Everton. The next game after this one?

      Some things never change.

      That was at Goodison, this is home turf, this is Silva-infused Everton with absolute f**k all about them, we'll f**king batter them, just as long as the players keep the same mentality as we've have been doing. We been saying for ages someone is going to get a hiding off this team, Wednesday is it, even with Adrian in goal!!

      Job done yesterday, we were coasting until Alisson's red card, Adrian was caught cold for their goal, but a big f**king well done to him for recovering and pulling off that save not long after, I'll even forgive the boob when he totally misjudged the ball and nearly fu**ed up, giving VVD a heart attack in the process. Two great headers from him.

      F***ing rejoice, 11 point lead, City f**k up and it's now a three horse race as we must acknowledge Leicester are in this too!

      Only thing in Alisson's head was he wasn't getting lobbed, it happens, plus we've got no worries about his replacement. Adrian got caught cold on the free-kick.

      But we're still grinding them wins out.

      Playing sh*t, winning games, nervy arsed last few minutes but we got there and loved the roar from the Kop when that final whistle went.

      I have some gripes but can't complain about any of it because look where the f**k we are sitting, but I'm still gonna!  :f_tongueincheek:

      Just feel myself worrying about Trent's side of the pitch. He really isn't that good a defender and Mo doesn't help at all. Teams just keep targeting that side of the pitch and every time it goes down that way, I sh*t myself. Wouldn't mind seeing Sadio and Mo swap sides for a few games. I know Sadio would help Trent out whereas I don't feel that Robbo needs the same protection as Trent does.  Surely this must be bothering the Boss at times. It's bothering me!!

      Teams have been targeting Trent's side ever since he became a first teamer. I recall even Porto did it when we battered them 5-0 back in February 2018. He's actually a very good defender in my opinion and I still recall his second half display against Man City in April 2018 at Anfield when we were 3-0 up and spent the second half of that match more or less camped in our own half defending the Kop end, intent on not conceding. He was outstanding that night.

      Teams go down his side for sure because they suspect him more but at the end of the day they have to go somewhere!

      See I don't think he is a great defender, brilliant at going forward, gets back in time but oppo payers seem to go around him quite easily, maybe coz he's fu**ed running back all the time. I just think he needs more help then he is getting from Mo.
