So United's 'punishment' for abandoning their fixture is that they get to play their reserves against Leicester, one of the teams that can and almost certainly will stop us getting top 4.
And our 'reward' for United abandoning their fixture is that we now only get a couple of days rest and preparation for West Brom instead of a week's worth, while Fat Sam gets a week's worth of training his side on set pieces.
F**k the f**king Premier League
City would have lawyers all over this. Where are ours?
In complete and utter contrast to the spirit of the people of Liverpool, Liverpool football club is a massive f**king doormat. Sh*t on it and it will apologise for getting in the way.
It's hard enough worrying about finishing above West Ham. It's really tough when we're worrying about a trip to West Brom. An already relegated West Brom at that.
We haven't had a game in 2 weeks. We had 8 days to prepare to play West Brom the last time. Didn't work out then, so why do we need it now?
Which is why 2 weeks ago I posted who do we all want in? The cry to remove the current owners was loud, but who are realistic buyers? For me, until we answer that no rush on outing these.
My support for what went on today is fans standing up for themselves for their club and the wish it to be ran in the right way. If we disagree with today based on who they are rather then why they done it I think the billionaire owners will always win
Win what? Apart from sparing us the embarrassment of handing our title over because we won our game, I don't think anyone is a winner in this. If it's to get their current owners out, that won't happen. If it's to run their club the German model, that won't happen either. If it's about the ESL, well that issue has been dealt with. So what was the point of using tarpaulins as makeshift trampolines? Apart from getting the game postponed, injuring police officers and damaging the old toilet, I don't know what it will achieve.
They have no say in the running of their club, the owners don't even have the courtesy to answer them, yet alone listen to them howling at the moon. 99% of them didn't care how they were run while they won trophies year in year out. It's only when the trophies dry up, do the questions start. Some of them were protesting. Some of them thought it wasn't effective enough, so they attacked police officers, confronted broadcasters just doing their job, threw missiles and damaged public property, as well as broke all kinds of virus regulations. That's not protesting, that is rioting.
I hope the FA throw the book at them because if they don't, it's not going to be a one off. There isn't the time to be rearranging games this season, just because Joe Bloggs wants to go onto pitches up and down the league, and throw missiles about the place, to make him look hip on social networks. It might achieve that, but only that. Apparantly, while they were busy refurbishing the goal, one of them got up on a crossbar and was only knocked off it when a flying football hit him!
They now screech that they want the German ownership model. They didn't specify which one they wanted, presumably because they don't know anything about it. There is the basic model, and the Leipzig model, and the Bayern Munich model. Given how sensitive they are about anything Munich related, the last one is probably a non starter. But the Bayern Munich model is the best there is, where those running the club are fans and football people, so they know what works best and what doesn't. Rummenigge didn't want to know about the ESL, because as a football man he knew it wasn't right for Bayern, and it had no possibility of getting off the ground. The World Champions are about to win a 9th Bundesliga title in a row. There's no aggro, there's no dissent, there's no debt, and if someone decides to abandon ship, someone else slots in seamlessly, and the success never stops. We don't have that ownership model at our club, the mancs don't have it at theirs, and you won't see it anywhere in England. In our league anyway.
Onto our last ever home game in an empty Anfield. After it hopefully, the only way is up.
