Trent extended to 2029.

Not yet. His agent has some demands concerning the structure and amount of bonuses. These do not seem to represent a major problem and he should, as has been talked about on the internet, extend his contract until 2029.

Reminds me of that old joke. Why’s a date with Katie Price like getting a take away from KFC? Once you’ve done with the breast and the thighs, you’re left with a greasy bucket to stick your bone in.

@VV please leave it for down the pub.

Disappointing misogyny. Surprised this got posted.

Maybe the eds should decide what this platform is going to be and for who. This is not why I come here.

I'm not prudish but there's a time and a place.

{Ed025's Note - fair enough if thats how you feel jay, but it does seem that you cant open your mouth these days without offending someone, the PC police dont allow jokes or humorous observations now, i can actually see your point on this one mate and i apologize for posting it as it obviously caused offence..

Be offended if you want Jay that's fine but don't try and stand on a high and mighty horse and think you're better than everyone, it was a funny joke, get over yourself, massive reason for this country and world now being like it is is because of people like you having to be offended and letting everyone know about it.

10 Jun 2024 08:07:02
Why are you apologising ED25, nothing to apologise for, , you are playing exactly into what someone who does this wants, sad sad times when it comes to this, please don't go down a pub or even outside if something like demands an apology, my god.

Don’t apologise for a snowflake ed these people are what’s failing with society desperate for attention and cry for a small joke you should put him back in his box. Probably wears hi vis and stands in motorways for greta or tells kids it’s ok to be gay.

Wow. 'Tells kids it's ok to be gay. '

Eds, can I put my snowflake hat on and ask that this user be banned? Both the above users think the world is the way it is because of people like me complaining, but they aren't learning anything. Absolutely embarrassing. I completely agreee with Jay and I thought Ed25 apology was appropriate, and well said.

I like the idea that you can “stand on a high and mighty horse”. You’d need good balance.

@Victor - I appreciate it was an attempt at a joke. Personally I think it is as funny as anthrax but I was wondering would you tell it if Kate Perry was in the room? Serious question.

14.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 09:11:52
Max, when the best insult they can offer is "snowflake", I wouldn't bother with them. They'll be calling people "woke" next.

YNWA. Unless you're different. Never thought a page for Liverpool fans would get so right wing.

15.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 09:12:50
Max on the contrary by your token you’d ban comedy and general humour. If you’d been to a comedy show you’d witness humour far more cutting. It was a joke, hardly offensive.

16.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 09:21:27
It's ok to be and do whatever you please but it's not ok to push views on people who have differing views, be offended, that's very sad if being offended by a joke makes someone cry out for attention, be offended and move on, don't push it on others to go along with it being wrong to tell a joke, I neither laughed or was offended by the joke and simply scrolled on without care, until I saw that garbage about an apology, also the comment about reform Britain was pretty crass, I will probably make some have a melt down as I'm someone who hasn't their eyes closed to the overcrowding of this country, and thinks the boats that cross these waters should be turned straight around at British waters (so racist i bet) but that crap can be kept off a football site.

17.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 09:27:18
Max, that is exactly the problem, ban him he doesn't agree with us, it's his view right or wrong, I have a gay step son and didn't care of his view, it is a comment I choose to ignore, do the same and save yourself some stress. This agenda push that everyone should accept everyone will never work, the world is full of very different people and no one will ever have the same views, accept it and make peace with it, sad but true.

10 Jun 2024 10:08:02
Wasn’t being homophobic whatsoever I was making a point about pushing views on people which is what these people love to do oh I’m right agree with me I apologise if I offended anybody but I have no problem with gays or anybody I just don’t like people who push ideologies onto others, forcing people to apologise for making a joke I was generalising and making a joke back saying these are the type of people who do these things, obviously went over some of your brains.

22.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 10:29:29
Neither me, Jay or Ed 25 was pushing an ideology onto anyone. It's about time and place. And yes, some people are too easily offended, but you should always listen when someone says they're offended - don't blame them for feeling that way.

I didn't mind the joke at all. If I'd heard it in the pub I wouldn't have protested even though it's not funny. My problem is that women and children probably use this forum. It was inappropriate. We're trying to get more women into football, and so telling jokes like that was not ok for a football forum. Jay could be a woman. Ed 25 was right to apologise. Next we have people ranting about snowflakes, agendas and immigrant boats that need to be turned back.

I repeat my request to ban that user - that's not me pushing my agenda on him, it's me saying this site is not an appropriate place. If we met in person we'd probably get along, but you can't be posting stuff like that, offending people, then blaming people who call it out for causing all the world's problems.

so anyway. there used to be a game we talked about called football and we go t wonderfully distracted from 'the real world' by being able to talk about who was joining or who might be joining the thing that unites us here - Liverpool FC (apart from Ed2 of course, who we all know is a rep for the 'Out on Loan Chelsea Academy') maybe we could all just relax and go back to making up rumours. No.? I'll get my coat!

It was Katie Price, WDW, not Perry and yes, I would say it to her face as she has had more “gentlemen friends” than Tanguy Nbombele has had hot meals, and I can assure you that is a very very very large number that could take the best mathematicians years to calculate.

Am I banned? It should be max banned he’s clearly the instigator who has blown something up ten times worst than it should be. I apologised for a silly comment has that guy? He’s still adding fuel to the fire.

{Ed001's Note - you should really learn when to shut up. Talking about how your 'joke' went over everyone's brains, when it just wasn't funny. It was moronic. Give it up now and give us a break.}

@The colonel

You say you “have no problem with gays”

But earlier you say you do have a problem with telling “kids it’s ok to be gay”

So which is it? ?

I agree politics should maybe be left aside of a footbal forum, however there is a line where it crosses between politics and societal issues. And homophobia should be called out for what it is!

What is wrong with everyone? Seriously. Let it go and move on. We all had our two minutes of attention, now let's move on back to what really matters. Trent's extension.

I've been on here for probably 15 years now and I know one thing. What anyone says here is not going to change anybody's hard held opinion on anything. So that's why I say, and always think, "let the freaking thing go". Leave the sermons and objections for Sundays at another venue.

34.) 10 Jun 2024
10 Jun 2024 15:54:44
I think we're all just more tuned in to things that can be offensive if we have loved ones or friends who are sensitive to certain triggers.

My missus has an eating disorder so the worst thing on this thread for her to read would be the joke about Ndombele loving food! But I'm not going to kick off about it because most people just simply don't understand and being ignorant of certain 'triggers' does not make you a bad person.

DK97, I think he will but that does not necessarily negate a move to Real Madrid in my mind. It will just make it more expensive for Madrid to get the man they want. Real Madrid is such an overpowering suction machine of top quality football talent that very few teams or players can resist if and when they come calling.

To be fair MK I feel uncomfortable with fat shaming too, I personally don’t think it’s okay with folks saying they’re only having a harmless little laugh, only certain people who conform to and perform certain norms can make jokes like that at other peoples’ expense (read: people who deviate from that norm), I mean klopp literally had that sit down talk with the founder of that queer lfc fan society discussing how hurtful certain chants are and how it made them feel ostracised by fellow Liverpool fans…would it be right to tell them to not be so sensitive and that the rent boys thing is just a bit of banter to rile up the opposition?

People can say that discussions like this have no place on a football site (and I suspect those same people are by and large straight men who feel menaced by these conversations) but examples such as the above demonstrate the fallacy of such thinking, the fact is that there are all sorts of fans and it’s not up to the majority to decide whether their concerns warrant attention, because all this ‘stop shoving your queer feminist agenda down my throat! ’ stuff just sounds like shrill paranoiac defensiveness and a refusal to engage with the fact that the way we behave can be hurtful towards other people

Is this simply preaching and sermonising? I dunno, but my own feeling is that this game isn’t some sort of escapist sanctuary cloistered from society nor should it be treated as such (I thought the politics of the game and the class cleavages between different areas were already in plain sight with the differences between ultras groups), clearly it is riddled with all the problems that we see everywhere else

And to return to the subject…yes I would love for Trent to extend of course

Sorry if this comes across as sanctimonious, virtue signalling is irritating but I think genuine attempts at debating the ethics of being a football fan are worthwhile.

"Probably wears hi vis and stands in motorways for greta or tells kids it’s ok to be gay".

I was under the impression it was perfectly acceptable to be gay in this day and age, or are we going back to the 'good' old days of conversion therapy or incarceration?

Jordan Henderson was ridiculed on this site for moving to a country with oppressive laws around homo sexuality and then you read comments like the one above and realise this country itself has a pretty long way to go, quite embarrassing really.

As someone else mentioned, this is an open forum accessible by all, you have no idea who is behind each username or what their situation/ beliefs etc are.

Good post PB. I’m 100% with you on freedom of expression and sadly some people believe that their freedom of speech supersedes that right for others to be who they want to be without feeling oppressed. I believe everyone has the right to practice their own beliefs in private or even amongst like minded others but sometimes they should keep them to themselves in public and on online forums.

My best mate is a head teacher in a secondary school and I can tell you the whole ‘you can be whatever gender or sexuality you want’ is screwing up our kids. He’s told me stories of kids regularly switching genders and sexualities because they are being conditioned by society to think that if they don’t feel comfortable or accepted they can just become the opposite gender or change sexualities and it will solve their problems. Guess what? It doesn’t.

Of course it’s ok to be gay or transsexual but we have to be very careful about what we are telling kids of a very impressionable age because it is destroying their mental health. They don’t know who they are, what they want to be or what they are supposed to be.

I really didn’t want to get involved in this but it’s something I feel extremely strongly about. You lot who want to push this agenda of being whatever you want are seriously doing more harm than good. Let the kids be kids and work out who they are before encouraging them to make these kind of life changing decisions.

Anyway I’ve said my piece, now back to football.

That’s a very interesting take concerning the disorientation that young people face and the solutions the world offers them to escape it, bp, not going to expand upon this conversation further here, but I just want to reiterate that when certain posters indicate their annoyance that this forum isn’t strictly about football…

I would like to think that football encompasses more than simply eleven men chasing and kicking a ball and transfer windows, and that the evolution of the game is not simply tactical, but human and social, asking a fan to check who they are at the door when they pull on the kit and support their team is easier said than done when they’re stigmatised every day for it, even in the stands, for some this whole notion of football being an escapist past time when everything else is horrible outside those 90 minutes is just a fantasy which is not available to them.

Is it so bad to arrive at a broader understanding of the differences between folks who support our beautiful club? I don’t think so, but that’s probably the last I’ll repeat myself in this thread.

{Ed001's Note - it is like saying we have to not talk about a player being racially abused, as that is not strictly football. Or when idiots make homophobic chants about Brighton fans, should we just ignore that because it is not really about football?}

I used to live and study in Hawai’i in 2009 and I recall an awesome and enlightening convo with a professor at University of Hawai’i for cross-cultural and indigenous psychology. He was an advocate for indigenous rights and as a native Hawaiian he obviously felt strongly about lifting the voice of native Hawaiians. He used to talk about things like cultural appropriation and how it was damaging for Hawaiian culture, how native language was being butchered and mis-pronounced in mainstream media.

This thread has brought back vivid memories of his response when I asked him what drives him to be such a strong advocate today (at that time) . And this was in a time before the word woke was a thing, but applying today’s logic to his kind of advocacy I suppose you could describe his thinking and his approach as woke, that his atttiide was that of a snowflake, he is being too easily offended etc.

Anyways his response was along the lines of - “I am a strong voice today because for generations our people were forced into silence. then when we found a voice, but for generations we were marginalized and we stayed tolerant. now is a new generation, we are using our voice and after generations of suppression followed by oppression, we aren’t scared to move forward with our own revitalization. They won’t like it and they’ll call us all this and that, but we’ve literally had centuries of this so we good”

Anyways, I share this as a thought and I suppose as a reflection for the anti-PC brigade. I’m 40 so feel like our generation crossed both the old and the new wave When people say things are too PC or woke or whatever, perhaps pause and consider whether we lived in a bubble where our perspective was the dominant and suppressive perspective.

Doesn't mean ya can’t have your opinion obviously lol just suggesting that it’s not all unicorns and butterfly kisses. There is a wider context too

Food for thought

P. s. it was a dumb joke anyways. Anything that randomly objectifies anyone as a piece of sexual meat is lame imo. Could easily make the same joke about the loads of dudes who have slept with Katie and no doubt countless other women and have no less of a rep as Katie apparently, yet we joke about the woman. Food for thought x2.
