  1. How many loses in a row at Anfield now Jurgen?

  2. The same posters who, in the pre match thread, were expecting us to get beat are now moaning we didn't win. From outside, it's look an agenda. It looks like certain people don't trust Smith, so think we will lose. If we don't lose, and overachieve against these posters expectations... It's still not good enough and the manager gets the blame. I'm struggling with it. I don't post in the match thread. I don't post immediately after in the post match thread because it's so clear. I usually post the morning after so as not to get caught up in the completely overreactions. This place is

  4. Luiz is a regular starter in a "spine" position for a team that is 9th in the Premier League, and he's 22 years old. He must be doing something right. First thing I noticed today against Wolves was how good his passing out to the wings was. Constantly hitting the man in space. You just don't get this from a player like Nakamba. And you can say what you like about his defensive abilities, but we've kept 14 clean sheets this season, the vast majority with him starting. That can't all be because Martinez is a world class keeper (even though he is IMO).

  6. Here we go, VT. A goal down after half an hour, and Smith got it wrong, we hate various players, we are crap, the ref is corrupt, everything's a conspiracy, etc. Give it a rest and grow the **** up.

  12. For me, the fish, chips and gravy combo is representative of a sort of moral failure in our society. It speaks of a set of values which I cannot get behind. I should say first that I love a bit of battered cod, and I love chips. I love chips and gravy, they're a delicious slippery treat, but I live in a carefully managed social construct, one that has rules and principles. It's quite loosely held together and that looseness is what allows us our creativity and freedoms, but it is held together, there's a fabric to society, agreed moral and intellectual premises on which we can create exp

  14. Two very different things: Firstly, I think Chris Wilder wins the game - in the first half, tactically, he got his shape and his tactics completely right, we struggled to get out, struggled to do anything with the ball and were outnumbered all over the pitch, particularly in wide areas - he completely out-thought us. In the second half, his team gave an organised, disciplined defensive performance full of character. We were out-managed tonight and that's to Wilder's credit. Secondly, goals - we're very blunt indeed. Jack is a lightning bolt, he gives you a little bit of the impossibl

  22. It seems to me that they've both done excellent jobs given where their respective clubs were when they took over, compared to where they are now, and that this is a pretty pointless conversation. Any team can lose 6 or 7 games in a row and then everything looks different, and maybe one or other of our clubs will be fighting relegation next season. The only real point of difference is that I think Smith has received less acclaim in the media, for whatever reason, but frankly who cares.

  26. Two midtable teams slogging out a pretty poor game. Draw probably the fair result on balance. We're at 40 points with 12 games left, so I find it hard to be too frustrated tbh. I do wonder if some of these players have been run into the ground a bit with the end of last season and everything that's happened this year

  27. I remember Chris Wilder being interviewed after our play off win at Wembley in 2019 and it was mentioned how nice it was that two managers, had taken the team that they supported into the Premier League (Dean through the play offs and Wilder as champions). When the PL restarted last season, our hosts were the club with Europe in their sights and it was us that had seemed destined for a return to the Championship. As it was, a terrific late run of results kept us up and a poor run of results after the restart, cost the Blades the place in Europe that they had seemed destined for. Both clubs for

  28. He played as a busy 8, linking up around the centre circle, and carrying the ball up the pitch a lot. He can beat a man and drive inside or outside. He has the engine to do this all game by the looks of things. Around the box, he plays with his head up, and is looking for dinked crosses behind the defence. Defensively, not massively physical, but great tracking. His yellow came from losing the ball and tracking one of their quicker players (can't remember who) about 40 or 50 yards - nearly won the ball legitimately. I think he's basically a tidier, less one-footed, less physical

  31. I'm sure I've told this story before, when I used to mod the Official Forums, they were nearly all essentially run by the same company and we found a backdoor into every teams forums and it wasn't even that hard to find, we found it by mistake. Essentially you logged into your forum then just changed the URL to the team you wanted, you were then able to view their forums but couldn't post or do anything. It was essentially a f***ed up cookie, Innocent enough unless you had Mod Tools on your board, you had them on every board I used to delete topics and watch the shit fly between the fans

  36. I’m thankful that a handful of posters here aren’t anything to do with our team preparation. As we’ve ALREADY found out to our cost, you don’t take ANY team in the premier league for granted, you have to earn the right. Talk of easing past the bottom team, blowing them away etc. Misguided.

  39. My boiler stopped making hot water for the shower, the downstairs sink and then the bathroom sink. The bath still worked. I investigated on that internet tube thing and ordered a part it might be from e-bay. £12.99. Took the old one out, put the new one in and blooming' 'heck, it worked! Hot water way hotter than it used to be. So as well as fixing the problem for 13 quid, I will also save a load of money by being able to turn the water thermostat thingy down - it was set to 60 degrees, now 48 degrees is the same water temp coming out of the boiler. I feel like a boiler mending God.

  40. I think for a large proportion of the electorate the boundaries as to what is acceptable have been extended. The current incumbents in Government have chanced their hand in sticking two fingers up to what would usually have been seen as unacceptable behaviour, such as the proroguing of parliament, the Dominic Cummings debacle, Priti Patel bullying, and just downright bare faced lying across the board, and I bet can't believe their luck that they have continually got away with it. Not called out in the media in the main and the opposition in Labour have either been too meek or simply been port
