Tsk you should try BBCs coverage of Leagues 1 and 2. Blink and you miss it coverage with both divisions crammed into 15/20 minutes.


That and their punditry on Yeovil every week, which culminates to them saying "Aw, bless 'em for trying". :lol:


At least they mention you.

2 mentioned so far this season, double the amount from the entire season last season.

All 3 quickly made reference to that Doncaster game :x

I never watch the League Show - not from any feelings of superiority over clubs from the lower leagues but purely because, as you say, the coverage is so poor.

I miss that show. Yeovil were always the main feature, especially when the other South West clubs started being rubbish. :lol: Whereas on the league show we're still small fries.

Good first half, shame about the second.
Ran out of ideas and ran out of legs.

And Aspas came on.

That was genuinely the best match of the season so far.

Step it up, EPL.

I don't think it's a coincidence just how close his name is to "a spazz", absolute donkey of a player!

Still, 10 points out of 12 is fantastic, Moses looked good and we get the Dwayne Dibbley toothed, goalscoring cunt back next week :B
Genuinely the happiest I've been about LFC in a long time. Early days yet but I think we've got a good shot of scraping back into the top 4 this season.

I'm just happy it didn't end up being 12 out of 12! To be honest, I'm really not looking forward to Suárez coming back. If you're doing this well without him, you could be a real obstacle to Spurs getting a champions league place this year when he returns.

Ah well Spurs are looking pretty good to me. Fingers crossed on a totally different looking top 4 this year, except for Arsenal of course. :lol:

if they lose against Leverkusen and then against us in the derby i can only imagine the uproar of people looking to have Gollum's head for it.

EDIT: if we lose the same games quite a few folks are planning to sing Mancini chants at every game afterwards until he either succeeds or fucks off so i actually think these two games will be very high pressure for both.

I'd say Man City are looking less convincing, United are still somehow getting wins. Chelsea aren't exactly setting the world on fire with Mourinho either. I think Liverpool are going to start sucking again in a month or two, and neither Spurs nor Arsenal look consistent enough either. Unfortunately, I can see United doing what they did last year - looking utterly shit but still somehow getting enough wins together to win the league as the rest of the teams that can challenge them are failing miserably.

I guess Man U are getting their tough games out of the way early on. Arsenal will look good for abit because they don't play anyone that good now until Liverpool in November.

Eh? They've won, drawn and lost as many games as us...but yes they are more convincing right now the quality of opposition is higher for their first 5 games so that's worth acknowledging.

Yeah they lost to Liverpool and drew at Chelsea, but apart from that they've won without looking great, whereas City have looked average against average teams. I'm hoping City just need time to settle, and Man Utd start to fail miserably, but we'll see.

I used to think that United's ability to win whatever was down to Fergie, but they seem to be doing it again this year, so maybe Moyes isn't the one dimensional manager I thought he was. :lol:

Pretty happy with that to be honest, if we bring that mentality to the derby it'll be a good game. Feel sorry for Leverkusen on that first united goal though.
