Why would you need to declare for a country you are supposed to be from?

Was the stadium not sold out on Sunday?
There was definitely one empty seat anyway after this guy had to leave early.

Glad to see United dealing with this correctly and swiftly. It's taken 8 years for this admission of wrongdoing......http://www.msn.com/en-ie/sport/football/carragher-apologises-to-evra-for-t-shirts-worn-in-support-of-luiz-suarez/ar-AAJ9xYD?ocid=ientp
Hopefully MUFC can now address this sort of thing also...

And it was good of the reporter to say itís equally wrong about the Munich disaster chants, get them banned

Bad comparison though. I'm pretty sure the club itself didn't hand out t-shirts with the words on them.
Wasn't comparing anything, just making you aware.

excitement/trepidation building now...had bad start to the training and blew up on my 2nd 20 miler but fuk it at this stage. Just need to settle on a strategy!

Anyway, staying down Saturday & Sunday, have a Airbnb on Tara St - any idea where would be best to park? Probably end up with a QPark or similar, not cheap but unless any of ye have any advise I would say there's little option.
Yep getting close now. Looking forward to it with both dread and excitement myself.
Weather forecast seems good also.
Have never put as many miles into training so hopefully it pays off come sunday afternoon around mile 20!

Very poor performance. Can't afford to drop points against these type of teams

Nope, but you did. Imagine, only drawing with the team who are 13th.
14th.

Decent point given how Liverpool played. On paper that was in the top 3-4 hardest games all year and it is a sign of how far Liverpool have come that its disappointing only to take a point from OT when they play poorly.

As Klopp said afterwards, everything went against us but we still didn't lose.

Maneís goal should have stood. Handball rule is ridiculous.

Didnít get a great look at that tackle before goal though.

The handball rule is terrible but not for that yesterday. You shouldnít get a substantial advantage from an accidental handball. Had Mane not touched it with his hand the ball was away so for me itís the type of handball that should be outlawed. The first goal did come from a foul but that was only clear on slow motion replay so I think on the rules VAR was correct not to over rule it but Iíve been an opponent of VAR for years and this season has done nothing to change my mind.
So it was a foul but it still shouldn't have been ruled out...great logic there.
The reason VAR is there is to see things in slow motion after the event that the ref might have missed, though how the Ref didn't blow for a foul in real time is unbelievable, slow motion replays weren't necessary as it was an obvious foul in real time.
The Ref was a disgrace yesterday anyway, completely favoured United.
What's that James fella story , was diving all over the place at the start of the season and now going down pretending he he injured all the time, did the same for Wales last week pretending he was knocked out ffs. Even the United players didn't kick the ball out of play when he was down at one stage, play only stopped when Matip kicked it out.

A deserved point especially considering the United goal should have been disallowed, could even have snuck a winner at the end.

Poor, flat performance though so would be happy enough with the point and go 6 points clear at the top.United were always going to raise their game just because it was Liverpool,hope they can find it within themselves to do the same when they play City....

Liverpool want to up their game here. United look far more up for it.

Mane goal correctly disallowed. Ref a f**king idiot on the United one.
Mindboggling that it wasn't disallowed. The Ref should have given it beforehand anyway, he has been giving United soft frees all game and then lets that go.
Mane goal rightly disallowed.

Do ye not warm up after a mile or so? Maybe not at -13 granted but in normal cold weather?
I never wear anything other than shorts and at most a long sleeve running top. Tried some base layers once and felt like ripping them off after a few miles as I was too warm.
You'll be getting the girls (and some fellas) all in a fluster.  ;D
Aye I'm a real Adonis plodding along at 9 min miles sweating buckets no matter the temperature!

 ;D

Surely you need them in snow and freezing pouring rain though??

Might throw on a pair of gloves that be about it.
I don't feel the cold as much as most.I think I'm conditioned to it from years of working outside, not as much any more but I would have back in the day. Believe me when you are wiring 30 fluorescent lights in a cattle shed on a freezing winter morning you soon get used to the cold.
