The linesman was watching the byline tussle involving Lallana and a couple of West Ham players in case of a tight throw-in call, so he missed the offside. Later on, Salah was called offside when he was almost through on goal when he was clearly onside. It just happens, though I hear that Liverpool are accused of gaining more than they lose over a period. Dunno. Liverpool were nervy again, and they need to keep Lallana, Keita and Matip on tbe bench and get Hendo and Gini in the midfield. Let's hope the Ox gets a game or three this season and that Joe Gomez gets well soon. West Ham did park the bus brilliantly for long stretches. A draw seemed fair in the end.

A mediocre display from Liverpool tonight. West Ham (a team I hate, they ruined my 9th Birthday and I've never forgiven them) could have been 3-0 up at half time.

I say 3-0 because Liverpool's goal was offside by a country mile.

If they continue to play like that they've not a cat in hell chance of winning the title and you may not believe this Steve I would like them to.

Hi

Leicester 0 V Man 1 United

Another win for Ole and his push for the top. United won ugly after scoring early on the decided to sit on the lead and trust to create break-away goals. Unfortunately Leicester did the same until almost the end. Still , this is a good win after all Liverpool could only draw with them last week and L.Pool were at home and we were away.

I watched City 3-0 but not a good performance from City.

Liver Liverpool I think they are getting nervous ..... what Fergie used to call " Itchy Bum Time. !!!

I'm already for tonight ti watch Liverpool v West Ham = on paper an easy game for pool but there have been so many weird results recently you just can't tell.

Hi Nigel

Watched most of the games in the rugby Union 5 Nations Cup.

Wales were great and never gave up after being 16 - nil down. They are going to be hard to beat.

The Scotland game was not convincing as they allowed Italy to get three late tries.

The England v Ireland game was great as England pulled off a great win against the favourites to win the title.

But a great start ball which promises to be an interesting season.

A clear foul in the penalty area is a stonewall penalty, Mike. There is nothing in the laws of the game that says the bar is set higher for fouls inside the box. And a very clear foul it was. As for fouling the last man In a clear goal-scoring opportunity, the key word is "opportunity," not "dead cert.".

I would'nt describe it as " Stone Wall Penalty and certainly not a sending off. The player had lost control of the ball and it was not certain that he would have recovered enough to have scored.

Hi

Liverpool 1 - Leicester 1'

I watched the full game on TV. Almost like the night before ( Man City ) Liverpool shot out of their traps and scored very early on. After that Liverpool appeared to ease up. The game de-generated into a boring game with poor passing and little or no pace, surprisingly, especially for Liverpool. Their defence appeared disorganised. And just before the interval Leicester in the shape of harry McGuire stole a goal from a hesitant Liverpool defence.

Second half was Liverpool trying to pierce a stubborn Leicester defence. Leicester made several breaks and created some havoc in the liverpool team. They more than earned their draw.

Liverpool had a penalty turned down which seemed to have demoralised them.

They still have a 5 point lead but will have to play better than this to win the League.

Cheers

Mike

hi Steve

I know that your " tribal" moans are you just getting us going.

I do not know why Ole picked that side. Perhaps he's trying to give some of the younger players a chance for him to see what they can do.

It nearly rebounded on him as Some blunders were made by a couple of his introductions.

Burnley have always had a place in my heart. I used to love the Jimmy Mc.ilroy era. As you say....top man both on and off the field.

We have had a number of battles with recent teams and they have

Become one of our bogie teams.

I watched the City game....They scored in 25 seconds and after that they played a lot of rubbish.

So there you are it's wide open for you. I will be watching tonight. I am sure they will win if they play anything like their top form.

Howdydoo, Mike. I've been enjoying watching Man U's revival under Ole (see, I'm not as tribal as you thought!), but he made some strange picks tonight. Why did he leave Herrera out? And Lukaku is a definite bench man in my book. I felt a bit sorry for Burnley, me boyhood team (hail Jimmy Mac, one of the greatest men ever to grace a football pitch), as Man U did one of Fergie's late escape acts (as Ole would know!). Anyway, cheers to Rafa for the favour tonight, and let's hope Liverpool can do the job tomorrow. I have BT Sport Mobile and I'll be watching!

Hi

I have been away on a surprise week-end organised as a late Xmas present by my sons and our niece.

They paid for a long week-end for me and my wife to stay in London. They had somehow managed to get tickets for us to go to the Arsenal v Man United FA Cup game. Also we got tickets to see Crystal Palace v Tottenham.

The man united game was a cracker when 2 teams with probably the two worst defences in the league attacked each other all through the game.

United came through 1 - 3 to complete Ole's run of wins to 8. !!

Brilliant to watch.

The other game was not very good to watch except that the underdogs won.

Hoping united can continue their run tomorrow when the meet Burnly in the league. We don't have a great record against them but I hope Ole's march for the top carries on.

SEN I see that Noewich are holding their own. Pity that Leeds won tho.

Hi

The chase for the top places in the Premiere League gets hotter.

I watched most of the games this week-end and noticed the strain especially on the top teams. Liverpool had a few shocks in their game with Crystal Palace, After a struggle they eventually won 4-3.
Salah managed to score a couple but once again was seen to dive in the penalty area. If he is not careful he will get a reputation and have the referees watching him closely.

Man City were out of form in a tame first half but rallied to win, Huddersfield 0 Man City 3.

Spurs were given a huge fright by lowly Fulham only managing to
scramble home with the last move of the game Spurs 2 Fulham 1.
Chelsea lost to a improved Arsenal Arsenal 2 Chelsea 0.

Man united only just held off a Brighton chase. Man United 2 Brighton 1.

It looks to me that there will be 2 competitions One for top place by Liverpool and Man City.

There is a chase for the next 2 places contested ever more closely by Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United.

I find it difficult to forecast the third and fourth places.

It's going to be interesting. !!!!!

Mike

Yes I was a bit surprised at City's approach to the situation when it was open to them to improve their goal difference when they had the chance.

Along with the Guardian reporter, I did wonder why City didn't go for the jugular and extend their superior goal difference. Who knows, it could be crucial at the end of the season. As things stand they are just two better than Liverpool, who, in recent weeks, wiped out a massive goal-difference deficit. Just one own-goal after half-time? Feeble!

Hi

Yes United under Ole has awakened them to start to play as we know Man United should play.

Recently there have been two great games to watch for excitement and entertainment. Man City v Liverpool was a cracker and last night United v Spurs was a good runner up to that game.

Yes we owe much to David de Geah who had an absolute blinder. However Spurs showed that United's defence is very weak and needs stenghtening as soon as possible. However in the first half United could ( should ) have scored three or four goals but some wayward finishing and good keeping by Spurs' goalkeeper limiting them to that brilliant goal by Lingard + Pogba's superb pass finished by Rashford.

Just of to watch City v Wolves ( on TV . Wolves are capable of causing an upset but I think City will win what could be a good game.

Hi
Steve....yes Clopp dropped a clanger there.

There was plenty of warnings for him in the previous week.

Man United made 9 changes against lowly Reading which nearly came unstuck. Like Liverpool last night the changes made for a poor game as United struggled to gather some kind of organisation, but they couldn't put two passes together and were outplayed for most of the game by a shot-shy Reading team.

There were a number of other " surprises where managers made unnecessary changes to try to save their teams for oncoming league games.

That's all well and good if it comes off, but Clopp is going to be very sorry if these future games don't come out as he wants.
City will be chasing them hard in the league and Europe will soon be on the menu.

Who knows what this result will do to the players.?

Besides, your point of satisfying the fans is GOOD ONE.

I'm ashamed of Klopp. Fans deserve their club taking competitions seriously and that did not happen tonight. If he wants to rest his best players he should put on his strongest team from the start and make subs later when we're winning. Liverpool were shambolic for half an hour in the first half. Alberto-omigod-he's-got-the-ball-I'm-having-a-heart-attack-Moreno has got to go, as has Sturridge, and Mignolet, who was at fault for the Neves goal, is just scary. Young guys should have a go one at a time, not three at once. Jones was way out of his depth. A poor do, and bad for club morale.

Hi

Sen

It was a pity that Norwich had a man sent off after only 10 minutes. It meant that they had to play with a man short for almost all of the came. In the circumstances it was a great performance to go right to the end. It is hard to take going out of the Cup like that but in the great scheme of things, the Club will not be too upset . I think that they will see promotion to the Premiere League as the first objective.

Sounds like your husband enjoyed the game regardless of the score.

I have now got my fingers crossed for Norwich in their aim to get promotion.

Hi Sen

When it is cold we always used to wrap up and we would always have a supply of "Fisher-men's Friend,".

That was some years ago cos my Son now has treated me to seasons ticket for the last several years, he also has a contact where he can get tickets to the big games. These are usually in boxes.

Portsmouth are a top club but over the past few years they have steadily moved down and found themselves in lowly League 2 but are now in League 1 and are doing quite well. On paper Norwich should have no problems but the FA Cup is notorious for upsets.

Hope every thing goes well.

Hi

Yes a great game to watch - two top teams showing why they are up there.

I think the result was just about right.

had someone offered Jurgen that at this stage of the competition

Liverpool would be top by 4 points he would have bit their arm off !!

My slant is that if Liverpool play like they have been They will be easily able to hold the position without dropping any more points.

But one of the fascinations of sport is that you never can tell what will happen.

This was the best game I have seen in a long time......well done to both teams.

Well I'd concede that City edged it tonight. Bernardo Silva played a cracker, Sané was deadly at times and Fernandinho, as ever, was imperious. In fact, I think he was the difference. One of the best on the planet. He neutralised Liverpool's midfield to such an extent that the front three were isolated for much of the game, starved of supply. As good as Gini is, and he is, there's a big need for Jurgen either to groom an attacking midfield playmaker or buy one. There was an an awful lot of square passing going on when Liverpool were in possession, and you simply can't give a defence like City's all that time to get in shape. But the skills and the tactics on display put these two teams stratospheres above everyone else in the league. Gutsy stuff!

Fascinating game, the best team won ....... just.

At least the rest of us can look forward to the remainder of the season, had Liverpool won as I said earlier the title was theirs to lose.

I still expect Liverpool to win the title they'll just have to fight a little harder.

Not a bad thing for those of us who's clubs may, if they're lucky, get into the top four.

Hi

Last night watched Man United beat Newcastle 2 - 0.

Quite a good game to watch especially for Man U fans.

Newcastle were very physical - ( dirty ) and poor Rashford was targetted by the Newcastle defence. The referee , one of the top buys ignored most of the fouls two of which should have been penalties.

United found it difficult to penetrate a strong Newcastle drfence. But ironically it was Rashford who broke through. His superb free kick was funbled by the Keeper and Lucacu was first to the ball and he netted easily. A great move featuring Pogba and Sub Sanchez presented Rashford with the chance to put the game to bed,

Much to do yet, especially with the defence which was easily stretched by Newcastle.

Cheers

Mike

PS Jusy setting up for the big game !! Won't invade Steve. Best of luck.

Hi Sen

Very funny !!

I can't see Una Stubbs doing any of those chores for me...

To get back on thread, I watched Leeds v Notts Forest. It was a strange ( but exciting ) game.

First right at the start Leeds gave away a stupid goal. Then Leeds had a man sent off. Then despite only having 10 men , they went ahead 2-1.
they looked to be controlling the game when another error let Forest equalise. Forest then scored 2 more to run out 4-2 winners.

This should make you and Ibrahima very happy as Norwich earned a draw.

Saturday's game against Portsmouth is in the FA Cup. These are usually exciting games soIbrahima should enjoy it.

Ragards

Mike

Hahahaha Mike, that's so funny! Una Stubbs was very attractive wasn't she?
(This is awful thread drift, I'm sorry)

Before our wedding ceremony started, the Registrar took me aside for a private talk. He said he was duty bound to point out to me that Muslim men could have several wives, even four of them, but only one could be a legal wife, and was I aware of this?

I giggled and told him I'd already planned for that. One would do the cooking, another the cleaning and the third the ironing. This would leave me free to relax on the sofa. He didn't quite know what to say, but I winked and he smiled...
