Looks like they have thrown the book at the VAR officials and given them one weekend off for their incompetence. The ref Hooper however won't be punished quite as severely. He will be the VAR official for the Everton game this weekend.
You couldn't make it up.

Onto the naughty stool for a week. Surprise, surprise. No long term consequences or reforms, can't upset the PGMOL Old Boy's Club.

2.) 03 Oct 2023 15:06:20
How Hooper is not even slightly implicated in what happened, I will never know.

3.) 03 Oct 2023 16:40:19
Business, as usual then. Shocking, I know.

4.) 03 Oct 2023 16:57:30
Does a ref lose pay if dropped? I'm guessing they don't but couldn't find it anywhere.

{Ed002's Note - Yes they don’t get their match fee.}

5.) 03 Oct 2023 17:25:28
The uae trip will have covered any losses am sure mad that they couldn't use common sense and call the game back 20s.

{Ed002's Note - There is no issue with refs going to the UAE or the other countries they visit regularly: Saudi, Japanese, Greece etc.. they are paid to scale. You need to drop these stupid comments.}

6.) 03 Oct 2023 17:39:46
Surely the refs must get jaded with travelling to these places in between Premier League games? Jaded people lose concentration in all walks of life. If we believe their story, it was obviously lack of concentration to not know what the onfield officials were doing. If travelling overseas is affecting their work here, it should be stopped.

{Ed002's Note - Surely there is some other feeble excuse you can scratch away at. Typically after such trips the would just be assigned to VAR. Is this much different to them takin control of European games?}

7.) 03 Oct 2023 17:48:16
In all seriousness Ed, do you not see something suspicious about the reffing? What is your take on what happened?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained there have been mistakes.}

8.) 03 Oct 2023 17:57:39
Gentlemen, the excuses and complaining isn't going to change anything. Do what the team is doing right now - focus on the next game.

At no point, was or am, happy with the weekend's performance but, there's no conspiracy. Sour taste? Yes! But the overreaching is unhealthy.

9.) 03 Oct 2023 18:19:18
Everton and the Manc clubs lost at the weekend, so there is at least some sort of silver lining.

10.) 03 Oct 2023 19:47:51
Come on ed002, we all can’t all have your privileges, flying at the front of the aircraft or the upper deck of an A380, giving maximum rest, enhanced with a couple of glasses of vintage bolly ?

Ha - just kidding ed002.

{Ed002's Note - If you fly British Airways then first class us on the lower deck for the A380.}

11.) 03 Oct 2023 21:03:24
Ed02, it’s not a feeble excuse. It’s a valid point. Travelling is tiring; there’s jet lag too. To be fair to the VAR officials, it sounds manic in there, so they need to be wide awake. They were probably watching the Ryder Cup on their phones though.

{Ed002's Note - It is a reasonably short hop where they can sleep should they wish to. Is this the claim Liverpool will be making.}

I'm torn between two players for man of the match tonight. Both were born in Liverpool.


1.) 18 Apr 2023 06:04:13
Adam Forshaw? Weird choice but it's an opinions game mate!

2.) 18 Apr 2023 06:41:30
For sure, Adam.

3.) 18 Apr 2023 08:24:10
Jones was great and showed his potential. Much better than Elliot in the middle of park. Nice to have someone in there who can hold the ball and beat a player. We lack that massively when Thiago is out with Fab and Hendo. Hopefully he gets a good run on games.



25 Apr 2022 08:49:26
While i understand the excitement and hubris on here in response to beating our blue neighbours, can we please also spare an ounce of humanity to remember and acknowledge one of our worthy opponents. A fallen general who showed grit, passion and fortitude whilst under constant physical bombardment by our heavy-handed midfielders. A man of such iron-clad resilience that it took an enormous swipe from Keita's left pinky to stop him in his tracks.
That warrior is, of course, Richarlson.
Some may remember this game for the football and for three points closer to our season's goal but it should never be forgotten how much punishment that man took in his quest to try and scrape a 0-0 for Everton.
It may not have been captured by VAR (and consequently vigorously punished) but there was an incident around 60 minutes where his elbow was grabbed by TAA. Yes, grabbed. Just let that sink in for a minute. Grabbed.
In another situation, Richy was so viciously taken down by Thiago he actually rolled FOUR times from the sheer impact and couldn't prise himself from the floor for an excruciating three minutes. The cynics and doubters who thought he may have been exaggerating his mortal wounds had obviously not seen the brutal agony etched across his face as he dare not let go of his ankle in case the full lower limb fell off.
But, with a fleet of paramedics desperate to administer tourniquets and painkillers, Richy defied all odds and rose again. Not with a limp or complaint but with full-throttle urgency to obtain the goalless draw he so badly craved. Ten minutes later, tragedy struck again. A sniper from Row G on the Kop waited until Richy was alone, isolated on the wing, 20 metres from any player, and hit his mark. This time, Richy took a mere 2 and a half minutes to reattach his cruciate ligaments and hand-stitch his severely torn gastrocnemius whilst simultaneously urging the ref to use his coloured cards on somebody, anybody.
He fought on to the end of the game, despite having more broken bones than a KFC bucket, and a legend was born. Unsubstantiated rumours were that he only actually cried just the once.
Remember the day, people. With relegation looming, it will be a long time since we witness the likes of Richarlison again (unless we get Real Madrid in the final) .

Ha ha good read. I have to say I haven’t seen anything like them antics from a prem player in a very long time. He was more interested in lying down than getting up and helping his teammates out. I have no idea why Docoure was so incensed he should have been barracking his team mate for not getting on with it.

2.) 25 Apr 2022 10:19:13
It was very much a Mourinho-esque performance from Frank's Everton. The antics started from the very first minute.

I am glad for half time as we were getting caught up in their despicable approach to the game instead of just playing out game.

3 points is all that mattered. We got the points and we move onto Villareal midweek. In fact, this may have been a good warm-up for it as we'll need to move the ball quickly in little space to break them down.

3.) 25 Apr 2022 10:39:04
Quality post that IDreamOfGin 👏.

4.) 25 Apr 2022 12:25:58
Richarlison will be the first guy to bolt after he causes a bar fight. Spineless coward just like his spineless, arrogant and cowardly manager. Mourinho-esque? Nah, bro. Mou was a brilliant football mind. Still is when you watch his punditry. Lampard is just a self entitled, arrogant and incompetent excuse of a manager who NLY thinks he is Mourinho-esque.



24 Oct 2021 15:31:35
I know this is a bit of a delayed reaction but What was Dossena doing that far forward?


1.) 24 Oct 2021 15:35:25
Brilliant mate😂.

2.) 24 Oct 2021 17:26:40
We need to let a few in mate. or else ole won't be at the wheel much longer.

{Ed014's Note - 100%, ease up for f sake 😂😂

3.) 24 Oct 2021 18:21:13
Salah please tell me you put some money on 0-5 after I said it was 75-1 the other day.

4.) 24 Oct 2021 18:43:09
Dossena comment top, top class! :)

What a performance. Only hope Naby doesn't suffer another set back -- he was incredible on the night and has been playing great lately.

5.) 24 Oct 2021 18:47:03
Here Eds, I posted yesterday that United could be behind Arsenal after this game, I wasn't too far off was I.
If we kept going for it this could have been 10 or 12.

{Ed014's Note - we even gave them a 9 point head start! 😂

6.) 24 Oct 2021 18:47:43
Christ what a shout that was.

How many top grade English managers have there been in the PL era?

Nagelsmann and Tuchel have both won the Bundesliga with Bayern, Random Red.

I don't see him at another PL side if Liverpool are interested. I can't think of a manager who has moved clubs to a direct rival club so Bayern would be a contentious move, as would Barcelona if he has ambitions in Madrid. My guess is he moves to Liverpool or stays at Bayer.

Why would he continue to be scouted by English clubs if there is no chance of a work permit?


{Ed001's Note - because there is no chance now doesn't mean there is no chance in the future.}

It needs to be explained. And not by Dermot ‘Refs Do No Wrong’ Gallagher.

We lost games because of poor defending, Klopps persistence with questionable tactics, and above all the forwards not hitting the back of the net. Get the latter resolved and the first two issues become irrelevant.

Why is Ljinders writing books and doing podcasts on his tactics anyway? Leave it for retirement when you can boast about your success rather than give other teams insight into how we play.

We have a recent history of keeping players past their use-by dates (Hendo, Gerrard, Milner, AOC, etc) . I would be ok with selling Robbo, Thiago and Salah as they are not going to improve from here on in.
Salah starts every game despite playing poorly. The one game he starts on the bench he throws a wobbly when he comes on and then does nothing to justify his inclusion. He was a great player but his time has come and his frustrations with his decline are now creating negative headlines. I don't think Slot needs to deal with a player like that in his first season. Take what ever the Saudis are offering and run.

He refused to play for us too. Just turned up on the pitch, had a stroll around and collexted his dosh. Awful excuse for a footballer.
