Scholes isn't what I would describe as a model professional either. I remember him putting a hole in a Swedish players leg in a game at Wembley.

Scholes couldn't tackle. Always mistimed them. The one weakness in his game.

That doesn't mean he wasn't a good pro and well behaved off the field or that he intentionally set out to hurt people or get involved in aggro on the field.

Scholes was a serial cheat. He dived frequently and deliberately hurt opponents with nasty fouls every game.

I must have missed his mea culpa.

Re: The greatest ever comeback.

Taking your Liverpool or Utd hat off, which was better; Utd scoring 2 in the dying minutes against a great german side after being outplayed for most of the 90 mins or Liverpool scoring 3 in a half to come from absolutely nowhere to force extra time against a Milan team known for it's defensive prowess?

We can agree that both were amazing but which shades it for you?

Futile debate. How do you weigh it? That United side were clearly a great side, but they were missing their two central midfield superstars on the night (on the other hand... Carsten Janker??). Liverpool were a limited side with some superb players and some terrible players, up against arguably the best team in Europe at the time.

Both of them sucker-punched opponents, perhaps a little complacent, who didn't have time to react or compose or organize themselves.

I'd agree. Probably condensation on trees and simple dripping of water down onto ground underneath branches. Roads might be warmer than leaves as well, so any direct condensate evaporates off more quickly.

This is speculative and not thought through completely, could be absolutely wrong!

what is so wrong with the keeper?  Who was the last good keeper liverpool had who didn't have a good defense in front of him?
Plenty of rumour the last few days that he wants to sign Iker Casillas. Doubt he would be first choice if he did sign.
Mignolet in fairness had a strong finish to the season.

Unless he's regained his form this year, Casillas hasn't been too hot when I've seen him in recent times.

I'd stick with Mignolet in that case.

GOP candidate in Montana assaulting a reporter for asking a question about healthcare.

Sounds like a great guy.

Unfortunately, a bit of physical abuse towards some weeny, liberal, biased reporter will only help a GOP candidate these days. Sure the whole thing was probably a set-up, they'll say.

And the election is today. A bit late to have any kind of impact.

Only hope is that this low-life lost the gubernatorial election last year while Trump took the state by 20%!

There is perhaps too much focus placed on some western religious dogma on how they claim the universe was created. For example, most of the catholic church adherents believe in evolution.

I don't quite know how accurate this graph is, but it is worthy of interest. It does support many other studies that Darwin's theory of evolution does not contradict most religious /spiritual deeply held religious beliefs/understanding  on how the universe and all who live in it, have evolved.

Evolution (or any scientific explanation) is only at odds with those religious dogmas which stakes everything on a literal, word-by-word, interpretation of whatever ancient (transcribed over millennia mind you!) text or other source they use as a basis.

There's plenty of wiggle room in Catholicism, with everything interpreted through a priesthood and thus subject to some form of evolution itself. Fundamentalist protestantism or LDS, not so much.

Whether that is a good thing or not for the credibility of a particular religious group depends on your perspective.

Man dedicated his life to Chelsea so was due a big leaving do.

Just like 1000s of other club players have dedicated their lives to a club.  He didn't think much of the club when as Captain he started shagging his team mates wives!  He hasn't a fraction of the honours that Scholes and Giggs have but his all about me antics certainly made him the single biggest w**kstain in the game today.  Good riddance to a shameful racist.

 :o :o :o

Fair enough calling him out for shagging a team mates wife (was it multiple team mates?) however to then mention Giggs in the next sentence ;D ;D ;D

 ;D

Scholes is a very fair call though.

Model professional and person.

Well done United. A bad season in many ways still ending up with 2 trophies and CL qualification. I'd take a few of those bad seasons.

Did they not win three trophies?

Seriously??

He is essentially correct.

Anyone counting the charity shield (or the super cup) on a trophy list needs to wise up.

And I include Gerard Houllier in that.

Stallion you say Klopp has spent badly so far

Marko Grujić   
Shamal George   
Sadio Mane   
Loris Karius   
Joel Matip   
Ragnar Klavan   
Alex Manninger   
GIni

Which of these players  has Klopp spent badly on?  In my view Gini and Mane have been successful so far. Matip was a free. The others were all u set 5m or so with 2 frees so hardly bank breaking stuff. What has he done wrong so far that's been devastating in terms of his transfers?

Remember when he signed Caulker for a free and played him up front for 5 minutes in 2 games.
Most of my fellow Liverpool supporters have forgotten that but I don't think The Stallion has  ;D

Well, throwing the big useless lump up there only yielded a last minute winner against Norwich and an equalizer against Arsenal!

Normally I'd be screaming for an Ajax win, but now I don't know how to react to this game or if I'll feel guilty shouting for Ajax or even care.

Do City fans care about the outcome?

Would they feel happy that a United win might bring even a small bit of joy to the United half of the city?

Will it be a hollow victory for whoever does win, at least in the immediate term? (Time heals, and Champions League participation is a few months away).

Milner was a poor midfielder and he's a poor left back. Nothing but a workhorse with no pace. Shouldn't be anywhere near the side.

So who would you have as Liverpool boss who might sort out this situation?

Let it go! He has no answer. visitors can't see pics , please register or login

If Hannity has a shred of integrity, he'll resign.

Obviously he doesn't and he won't!
