Liverpool forced the errors.  You're overlooking the load of clear chances Liverpool missed.  Game should have been out of sight.  Liverpool dominated that game.
In the after match analysis it wasn't overlooked for all Liverpool's dominance of the game only two goals was scored and both were gifts from a keeper that only played because Lloris was injured.


Okay I thought that would've been your response. You don't know if a better goalkeeper would've saved those. Also just if they were awarded the penalty it doesn't mean it is automatically a goal...you do realize penalties can be saved or missed?
I know they were very bad errors by a replacement goalkeeper. Two errors on the first goal and the second goal he let the ball through his fingers. We aren't to know on the penalty because that referee wasn't as quick to point to the spot as he was for the Liverpool Crystal palace match a month ago.

Tottenham probably would have got at least a point out of that game if Lloris had played.

Would doubt that.  He might have done better on the corner for the goal but he couldn't do much about Spurs getting pressed all over the pitch and getting caught on the break repeatedly. Tactically Spurs couldn't live with Liverpool in that game.  Spurs couldn't get the time they wanted to get their main men like Erickson into the game and they ended up hitting long hopeful balls.



Tottenham were error ridden throughout that game and none more so than Vorm in goal which was highlighted on the Match of the day.  A better goalkeeper wouldn't have conceded those two goals and Tottenham should have scored twice themselves because that was a clear penalty in injury and interesting it was the same ref that gave Liverpool a very soft penalty against Crystal palace.

Far too may 'ifs' in there but I'll throw another couple in there...if Lloris was playing, and if he had dealt with the corner better do you not agree Liverpool should've received a penalty for Vertongen holding VVD back with both arms?
Not one if did I use in that last post.

Football moves on a lot in 10-15 years. That Tyrone team wouldn’t lay a glove on the current Dublin team.
Yes because that Tyrone team would be too old now to lay a glove on the current Dublin team.
No, because the Tyrone team of that time played nowhere near the level of the current Dublin team.
If that Tyrone team were exposed to modern low risk football with a big focus on strength and conditioning they very much would have laid a glove on them and more. FFS the current Tyrone team only lost by 3 points to the current Dublin in Omagh with a number of players not near the level of Tyrone's noughties players

I heard a thousand times how good Woolys podcast is from you lads on here, opened one a month ago and he was going on about hurling wasn’t any better than football. He was shouting and roaring at some hurler about how it’s not fair to compare the two etc etc. Such bullshit, Twas like two schoolboys arguing at the back of the bus. The man is a bit of craic but really he’s an overgrown teenager.
Podcast would be better if he wasn't on it, needs to know when to shut up. Overgrown teenager is a good description of him

An offensive mark would totally change the character of the game for the worse. It would largely kill off points from play as we know them. No thanks.

One thing that is worth considering is going to 13 a side. More space means harder to have a mass defense.
Would mean more focus on fitness and less on skill. No thanks.

Arguably the way the game has gone since 2010.

One of the last few characters of the game gone. Not only had he a great pair hands but his big arse was very useful to hold onto the ball. Happy retirement Kieran.

Burt was good in the Longest Yard 1974 film
Was in the remake as well in 2005.
Didn't care much for that film, might have been better if Adam Sandler wasn't in it.
