To Hull in a Handcart

I think it’s time to concede the title. In Boxing terms, Saturday was that punch around three or four blows beyond the required stoppage, when the referee finally steps in, arms waving to call a halt to proceedings, when the beating was too ferocious to initially put himself in the middle of it. I gave […]

Withe or Without You

Diego Costa is like a mard-arse version of Peter Withe. Withe was a horrible, awkwardly shaped individual. All elbows, fists, snarls, confrontation and goals. He wasn’t shy in doling out his thoughts on the game of football, or to his opponents out on the pitch. Physically forthright, is how you could class him. Withe was […]

Clusters at Anfield

You Are Here. Where are we exactly though? 2nd position going into the weekend, and 6 points behind a sickeningly proficient Chelsea would be the short, and wholly accurate answer. Highly likely to be 9 points behind Chelsea before we go into the Merseyside derby on Monday evening. Come on, be realistic. When was the […]

The Sound of Silence

The sound of silence. It doesn’t matter how many times you encounter it; you never really know how best to deal with it. It’s an odd thing. Silence. Jürgen Klopp dealt with the silence at Anfield on Saturday in an effective and demonstrative manner. It was a course of action which arguably swung what was […]

Saints Day: Southampton V Liverpool

2 points dropped, or 1 point gained? What slant have you taken? Even going back to the days of The Dell; Southampton away has always been a complex issue. Some of our most legendary teams tripped up in Hampshire. On other days we strolled in, kicked metaphorical chairs across the room, and turned over metaphorical […]
