  1. The ball was still in play and the player slides into him. Anywhere else on the pitch and it’s a free kick.
  2. It’s a slight oversimplification to say that everyone played the same way. For example, Liverpool in the eighties played a different style of football to teams like Wimbledon. That’s what I mean about the coaching though, the coaching is so structured and rigid that when something else is called for they can’t come up with anything. This rigidity brings advantages but also has drawbacks. I’m pretty certain that goal could have been scored thirty years ago as well. If you go back and watch old games some of it, mainly the tackles, will be shocking but there were also some highly talented players and great teams.
  3. Sorry, I’m on about the streaming services.
  4. I’ve just seen this. If our game against Milwall on the 29th goes ahead it will be our first game since the 11th. I don’t think we’ve currently got a covid outbreak in the squad. I think that we should start referring to this fixture as the CCFC derby.
  5. Maybe, I hadn’t considered that. Maybe it’s a combination of both.
  6. Is there an argument that modern coaches aren’t as adaptable as previous generations? I can remember most clubs having various injury crises back in the eighties/nineties/two thousands and coaches seemed able to throw a team together even if it did mean playing a centre back up front. Coaches now seem to have lost this ability to react to adversity. Take Leeds in their last two games. We know that the coach doesn’t want to do it but surely the sensible thing to do would be to admit that for the next few games they’re going to have to change their playing style and try to grind out some results? We all love seeing great football, but if for any reason you can’t currently play great football then surely the best thing to do is temporarily alter your style of play? Am I just being old fashioned? I understand that coaching has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few decades but at the same time it seems as if coaches and managers are straight jacketed with the idea that they can never deviate from whichever style of football they have chosen to play and as a result are less able to handle adversity.
  7. Hi all, has anyone heard anything more about the De La Soul back catalogue? Last I heard in the summer that was it was supposed to be out before the end of the year and since then I’ve not seen anything else.
  8. I haven’t got a clue what’s going on anymore.
  9. This is worse than that. Juddering and then speeding up to catch up to ‘live’ happens fairly often. Generally what looks like an inconsistent frame rate. I’ve never had a problem watching it on Prime on whichever device I’ve watched it on. It does show that in many ways we are nowhere near ready to switch to online only delivery.
  10. If only this didn’t sound like a plausible theory.
  11. Does anyone else have problems with the TV from sky app? Until recently it was fine but now live sport is a juddery pain in the arse.
  12. I will never understand why anyone would ever want to play shipment more than once in their lifetime or why they keep ignoring much better classic maps to keep bringing it back. Nuketown can do one as well.
  13. Try this for series - https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/store/call-of-duty-vanguard-xbox-series-x-s/9mwhtw1sf7rw This for Xbox one - https://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/store/call-of-duty-vanguard/9php6hf58mb5
  14. I’m not a Liverpool fan but I am finding it amusing watching all the Newcastle fans crying about Mike Dean with ‘Wirral’ trending on twitter.
  15. Mine’s fairly dull this year.
  16. Another huge figure from my childhood died today. Ex Coventry manager John Sillett. John was jointly in charge when we won the cup in 87, George Curtis died earlier this year.
  17. For anyone who has never been fortunate enough to see the best kit ever made and therefore don’t know what we’re talking about.
  18. They carry on down the shorts like the old kit too.
  19. Does it have to be a premier league game? The Ricoh (CBS) arena is only 15 miles away and Cov are playing great football at the minute. Plus they don’t have to go to Leicester, Brum or Wolverhampton.
  20. It’s not really my thing but I thought some of you may be interested in this new Dr Who exhibition. https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/whatson/world-museum/exhibition/doctor-who-worlds-of-wonder
  21. Just quoting this cos almost a quarter of the season has gone and we are still third.
  22. We were obviously saving it all up for an extra special old school performance against Luton tonight.
  23. The result was never in doubt*, not even when our ex striker got a last minute disciplinary reprieve clearing him to play against us. * it had home loss written all over it.
  24. It’s like someone has tunnelled into the mind of Pete Fowler and is transmitting what they’ve seen to your console.
