Also, I think we may as well pack up now hadn't we? It's literally impossible to see anyone apart from Liverpool winning the title isn't it? I mean, Man City are good but Liverpool look unbeatable, they're walking it already. Unbeaten, completely brutal in attack, so tight in defence, when Alisson comes back they'll only get even better at the back and if Henderson can avoid being banned for diving, cheating, whining or being a general squinty faced *********** to continue alongside Fabinho (rapidly becoming one of the best in the game), they'll have a reasonably strong midfield to go with the power options at both ends.

It's literally their year and it's terrifying. Can Barca or Real or Juve come in and buy Mane, Salah, Fabinho and Virgil Van Dickhead please?

I love you too Red Eric, but only because you're not a typical Liverpool fan.

I wish they'd win the league, for fans like you, but not for the **** Londoners who only support them because they were the best in the 80s.

We were further ahead than this with half the season gone last year so I'm not sure why anyone would get over excited about it. We really haven't been playing very well so far, Salah in particular seems to be trying too hard again and just running in to people. Fabinho is brilliant so I still have hope Keita will come good too. You could be right though, 2019 could be our year but the season ends in 2020.

Team of the year is interesting, there's 4 Madrid players in it and only 2 Barca players, how did they manage that when they were so bad last season they got rid of 2 managers? No Man City players at all either. What's the point in having a team of the season if it doesn't reflect reality?

We're going to thump the pikey ***** 4-0.

We haven't won at their place in any competition in my lifetime. Imagine having that as a rivalry. This is miles ahead of the Liverpool / United, North London derby type pansy modern rivalries. This matters.

I would assume on the back of their crushing defeat last Friday, Saints will be desperate to save face and at least stuff one south coast rival.

Rivalry is fierce, I expect they'll be a few punch ups, brave man/woman/non binary/identifying as a unicorn, who goes anywhere near Portsmouth tonight! (In fact brave person who goes anywhere near Portsmouth ever, full stop).

I see Yernited plc coninues to deliver it's most important pwrformance indicator..

£627 000 000 revenue to 30 June so Ed will get a big bonus for sure....

Oh and the company spent more than half of its income on player wages, despite a campaign in which no trophies were won.
