      Losers medals not picked up by Citeh, sour grapes indeed  >:D
      Spoilt Children. Having said that I can't understand why medals are given to the winners or losers...It's really a pre season friendly isn't it?

      Of course not. It’s two top teams going hell for leather to send out a message. WE are the team to beat.

      Do you think it looked like a friendly with the two line ups put out today ?
      I for one would have been totally pissed off gof s week if we lost it.
      The pre season friendlies are over, this is the season curtain raiser. Never ever seen a side play in it and not be worried about winning.

      Just goes to show what they think they are, and what they really are !
      Their manager should have insisted they pick up the medals, but he’s clearly classless as well.
      Horrible arrogant bas**rds who clearly think they have a right to win.

      Disrespectful in my opinion, as though they think they're above picking up a losers medal, like JD said, prize bellends.

      The notion that the Charity Shield is a friendly is waning slightly. If a team outside the top 6/8 or even a Championship team that wins the FA cup then the rivalry won't be as intense. But there's no real reason why it should be a friendly anyway. The rivalry increases the interest and the money it attracts.

      City put out a team to win, as we did. They played their ace up front, we kept ours up our sleave. No quarter asked etc. It was a genuine contest. Curtain raiser, no complaints.

      Nunez gives us a whole new dimension right in the box. He is a header threat and we did not have that so far. This will make our crosses even more effective. Will be interesting to see how Jürgen & Pep will install Darwin: just as a goal threat that waits up front or more as an offensive midfielder that gets opportunities to pass/run the ball as well.

      Elliott looked overmatched. 😐

      ~I may be wrong but I think Haaland will come a cross much more physical defenders in the EPL than in the Bunderthingy but he really has taken a beating with the ugly stick.
      We came so close to winning everything last season its hard to imagine our squad could have been better but I think it is now and thats evident from today. Its going to be a fantastic season

      it was a general question relating to the fixture, not this match. For the record I'm over the f**king moon we won, but I have read loads of editorials over the years that refer to it as a friendly...My central point was however whether medals are warranted..I think not.

      Probably all gone a bit overboard, to be expected after that win. Think it's probably too early to call Nunez and indeed Haaland. I mean the signs are good but I will be more convinced after 5-8 games or so. We know the Boss won't go mad. Still a learning curve for Nunez, think we all know that.

      Always up & downs, it's how we recover and make sure the defeats are rare. Think Trent was alluding to us pressing even better than we have in recent seasons, on that front have to careful you don't knacker the team. We want the flair players to have the zip and energy when we are attacking.

      Cracking start, see how it develops.

      No offence Keith...I've been advocating support for Adrian's selection for days. He's third in line, the others above him weren't available.
      Some of the comments over the last few days IMO lacked a bit of respect. He is a Liverpool player, and we are supporters, the clue is in the name...supporters

      see the Booing is getting headlines again. The Independent had a good line on it back in May
      "The booing is a cry for justice, for equality, a howl against hunger and poverty. It is depressing that so many in Britain cannot hear that"
      Thats a fair summation but I think it goes back not just to the 80's but even further back to 1911 with the Army on the Streets of Liverpool and Gun boats on the Mersey pointing their Guns at the City.
      I remember Radio City having an April 1st spoof saying we had declared independence if only.

      No offence taken hence the  :lmao:
      I’m not a lover of Adrian in any shape or form. You have the best No 1 since the days of Ray Clemence, the best No2 you’ve ever had at Liverpool to a No 3 that’s not worthy of a No 5. Just my opinion, he’s a liability which luckily you don’t have to rely on.

      Pep has been interviewed. Saw a clip and there's quotes about how blah blah happy he was with today and that Haaland is going to be amazing.

      To be fair to City, they never had a chance as they've not had a preseason (unlike ourselves) and Haaland is not match fit either because sadly he hasn't had chance to be ready for the new season. So they said...  :f_whistle:

      Heard one commentator say that on today's showing he can see that Haaland is going to have a fantastic season. Well... he didn't score, hardly touched the ball, and skied an open net absolute sitter. The hype train continues. If Nunez did what Haaland did today... well then...

      It’s quite scary how much people want Nunez and Haaland to flop.

      You have to have unbelievable mental strength as a player not to let this rhetoric get to you.

      You can never judge Haaland on the first game but I felt, as ever, that De Bruyne was far and away their most superior player. From what I heard pre season, I really banked on Haaland being at least a close second to KDB but there were numerous City players who had better displays. Haaland was surprisingly benign and to say Virgil has had tougher battles would be an understatement.

      I reckon City will have to play a more direct, counter attacking game to get the best out of Haaland.
