More and more fans back in football grounds from now on, hopefully. Until the numbers are up, got a couple of programmes from Brighton-Liverpool last Saturday if any Brighton or Liverpool fan wants one. First come, first served. I'll mail it to you.
I'm sure Liverpool would be up for taking the free Friday night slot if one of the broadcasters could just put the call in to Jurgen Klopp...
BREAKING: Newcastle's Premier League game at Aston Villa on Friday looking increasingly likely to be postponed due to coronavirus outbreak at club
FT 0-0. Mourinho and Tottenham pretty much got what they came for. Chelsea were unable to break them down. They no haven't scored in league games v Liverpool, Man Utd and Spurs. Still early in the season but won't be long before more is expected after spending £220m.
True. But Bergamo is less than two hours from Liverpool and Brighton even closer by the methods of travel they use.
@paddybarclay Surely being away last weds and home next tue makes the argument for pushing back this weekend's game though. Will have flown back early hours of thurs and had to travel down the length of the country on fri. Not a huge difference, but margins count given weight of games.
It’s you who are not thinking this though. Please say when you’d like Liverpool to have kicked off at Brighton. Really . Pick any time. Midnight. Tomorrow at breakfast time. It’s your choice.
Exactly. They could have given Liverpool say a Monday evening slot - like Fulham’s this week - but they’d have had to play in the CL 24 hours later. Or even a Sunday morning - but that would have caused a similar situation to the one Klopp moaned about.
I admire Klopp immensely. Most of English football does. But I think that on this particular issue, when you get to a point when you're blaming a television interviewer for an injury to James Milner, it might be time to take a step back and reassess.
Yes, Liverpool's defence has been poor but so has their midfield. Safe and slow distribution, and not stopping Brighton playing up to Connolly. Looks like a day when Klopp will be banking on Alisson and his front three.
