Take that Brentford.

Unusually for us we created two tap-ins. Nearly missed them both, but thankfully one went in.

Was almost a carbon copy of the Fulham game, scored early but were pretty poor from then on.
Unfortunately we left it far too late in putting a run of games together, so many silly dropped points earlier in the season.
Europa League Final is in Dublin next season though so every cloud eh 😂

Think we'll describe that one as workmanlike...

I would say we managed the game better than in the  Fulham game. The substitutions and play in the last 10 mins were more sensible. We didnít invite pressure this time and we had a release valve this time. We were absolutely blessed to beat Fulham, whereas we deserved to win today. But  of course Iím not saying we played very well today!

They are playing the anthem before the city game on match of the day. Will they play it before the Liverpool game?

Not being a Liverpool fan, I don't know the history here.   Why would an English crowd boo their own national anthem?

Liverpool historically is a working class city, one that has been left behind whilst the South of England flourished. The European city of culture money in 2008(?) was a big help to the city but resentment towards Tories, the Royal family etc still remains.

Isn't that the case with most of the North of England but they still love a bit of bootlicking?

Throw in the Hillsborough cover up,  Thatchers managed decline of the city in the 80ís and a general disregard for authority.

Iíve never  understood the  singing of GSTQ/K.  Footballers, rugby hockey etc,  standing for that anthem  in honour of  a billionaire bellend. I mean , what do they say?   come on lads letís do  this for Lizzie/Charlie??

Itís like the Irish  team shouting , come on  lads ,  Letís  win this for  Bono!

On top of everything mentioned, a lot of Liverpool people seem to think differently about their national identity than other parts of England. Liverpool supporters aren't particularly into following England. The idea of monarchy and the establishment doesn't fit well in a city more affiliated with socialism. Maybe the Irish heritage is a factor in part as well.
That's just, like your opinion man.

I have never known the Liverpool crowd to be as political as they have been over the past few seasons,Ē he says. ďThere is a beautiful banner that only comes out now and then. It goes near enough end to end in the Kop and it reads We are Not English, We Are Scouse. And that sensibility is tied in with booing the monarchy and the national anthem.

The writer Tony Evans outlined the rationale and energy behind the crowd hostility towards the anthem and an anti-monarchical stance: that it was the latest in Liverpool's on-going protest against England's prevailing class system and the establishment indifference.
The mood then was dominated by the Toxteth Riots and mass unemployment - set against the fabulous escapism of Liverpool's 1981 European Cup win.

"The release, after 30 years, of the state papers of the Thatcher administration in 1981 confirmed what Liverpudlians knew about the conservative party attitude towards the city.



Advising against Michael Heseltine's bid for a £100 million urban regeneration investment, then chancellor Geoffrey Howe warned Thatcher the government "must not expend all our limited resources in trying to make water flow uphill" and that the option of "managed decline" should not be discounted for Liverpool

It would be some roll to get 4th!  What are the odds.  Something like a 1% chance of that happening?

9/2 now after Uniteds loss last night. #ItsOn

Edit. It's equivalent to 18.2%.

23.1% now. It's the hope that's killing me.

The odds swinging in Liverpools favour now surely. Iíd be surprised if they missed out on the top 4 now.
