But the goals from De Bryune and Shelvey that tied the game are both classic strikes executed superbly, each hopefully an inspiration for Gylfi Sigurdsson to match in tomorrow's game at Leicester.

Wouldn't it be nice just once this season we could see our wasters do the same.

How someone was not marking Shelvey from that free-kick was pure amateurish, he had already shown his intentions from that distance with 2 previous free kicks.

That horrible bunch look to be well clear by Xmas. Man City want the Champions League and are sloppy at the back. Chelsea and Leicester will drop points. They look like winning by 15 points.
Silva has a chance to totally change the course of the season. He shouldn't have that chance but he does.

So far, Spurs seem to have had a bit of a bounce from the new manager. Hopefully we'll get the same when it happens

That's Alisson out of the Derby game, then.

Allison being out is big. This gives us a real chan... pffft, no â€“ l can't say it. Not even tongue-in-cheek.

Onto to the footy, great counter by Man City with a great finish by Jesus.

Rob, if you watched the last 20 you'll have seen him trying all kinds of tricks and flicks his old man would have been proud of.

He's had a very effective game as well. He's getting better as he gets used to the league.

Ive tried myself to defend Schneiderlin but he will never do enough for most people to win them over, no matter how well he might play. I just don't think people understand his game. We can all be deluded, no matter our own football expertise.
But to want Eddie Howe just because he's a good fit for one club, and has supported the blues one cup final. He's Bournemouth's Moyes. Soon as he leaves he will fail (in my opinion... so he should stay put as long as he can).

I'd honestly prefer to plough forward with Silva.
Skater boi wouldn't perform under Dyche or Howe either, but that's a different matter altogether.
42 Posted 03/12/2019 at 21:57:50
Of course Dyche has limited options at his disposal and I'm not sure there was anything he could do, but the fact he didn't try was telling.
I've certainly seen Burnley battle and play with more discipline than they've done tonight. They looked like they'd given up after the first goal went in.

48 Posted 03/12/2019 at 22:24:02
Funny isn't it how our own clubs all lean to Spain and Italy, Germany for managers. Who the hell comes in for ours. Dyche and Howe probably don't even have passports. Dyche would burn too easily in Spain for a start.

Can you imagine: Tom Davies out of Carling Cup Final, injured while out walking the dog.
52 Posted 03/12/2019 at 22:46:13
However, it'd be just our luck that he tries to impress a young lady and makes a fool of himself and rules himself out for a long period of time!

Ok, this is about the other lot, but it's a slur on the City of Liverpool. Trevor Sinclair was part of "kick it out" the anti racism charity, until he lost his job following a conviction for drink driving and racist public disorder (to a copper on arrest for said drink driving).
I personally find stuff like this to be quasi-racist against the people of Liverpool. It's a far cry from actual racism, that's for sure. But this kind of casual quasi-racism, where it's ok to refer to Liverpudlians as thieves needs to be eradicated. I'm sure we've all had the old "watch your wallets lads, the Scouser is here" jokes, when we've been living or working away from the city, at one point or another.
Sinclair needs to lose his TV job as well now and people need to know you cannot use terminology like this in 2019. It's disgraceful behaviour.
55 Posted 04/12/2019 at 16:16:59
Each to his own, but let's all Pat each other on the back and become outraged at everything, except things that really matter, well that's how I see it anyway.
You do what you have to, to survive Steve, and that's why I never get offended by people using such stereotypes mate, because I got this off the other thread were Boys from the Blackstuff, was mentioned, and like Jay Wood says in that thread, I am so very proud of the way scousers reacted, fought and beat adversity, and think of what an achievement it was, because Not many cities could have overcome such shite?
56 Posted 04/12/2019 at 16:41:26
I travel the world and when I get that it's dead easy to turn it right around and finish up with a good laugh.
We are far to easily offended these days, especially in things like that.
Best to turn it back on the idiots
57 Posted 04/12/2019 at 16:52:24
When I first came to Wales 48 years ago I took, on occasions, a dog's abuse of the ''lock yer desk'', ''Scouser alert'' etc. but one mention of the locals affection for sheep brought about a less pleasant atmosphere. Again, scousers were regarded as fair game. I blame much of the anti scouse bias on the BBC who at one time were unable to mention ''scouser'' without the adjective ''thieving'' before it.
Sinclair would not have been so cavalier in his choice of words if he was referring to Notting Hill Carnival and the amount of muggings that occur there, and I'm sure he'd not dare to denigrate the Muslim community for instance.
If you were thinking of opening a big business in Liverpool do you think that the reputation for thieving would encourage you to come to Liverpool.? Or if you were contemplating a City Break?
It needs to stop.

59 Posted 04/12/2019 at 17:03:25
As I said if I feel like it I usually turn it round.
I know there's nothing in it. Usually I found/find it's said by someone who hasn't got a clue and if it's in an ale house we have a few pints and get down to the serious stuff - football
If it's a Brit once you find out where they're from believe me you can always get them on something !
60 Posted 04/12/2019 at 17:10:03
And I'm NOT easily outraged. I leave the offended by everything to the shower across the park. ;-)
61 Posted 04/12/2019 at 17:29:17
I've found also, it's who's saying it. I got a bit heated at a dinner which seemed to be full of a load of entitled Tory gobshites, which was purely a racist pisstake. Ignorance for sure, and I guess we shouldn't mock the afflicted.

63 Posted 04/12/2019 at 18:01:59
I lived in Nottingham for 4 years, London for 10 and now Wales for the last 27.
I can honestly say that workmates in Nottingham and London would have a bit of a dig about hubcaps back in the late 80's and even now in the local there is the occasional reference to stuff like that. However it is very lighthearted and I would class it as nothing more than gentle banter.
I do though hear regular piss-taking on BBC Radio 4 about the Welsh.
It seems the Irish are off limits but people from Norfolk or the Welsh are fair game.
If we said things about Pakistanis in the same tone about their culture, there would be outrage.
Political correctness has been quite selective in it's use.
64 Posted 04/12/2019 at 18:07:53
The term "bin dippers" was used to refer to Kopites on this occasion but I know it's been used previously to refer to Scousers in general.
I know it was wrong and unacceptable but perhaps the Kopites, first and foremost, will have an inkling as to how Man Utd supporters have felt over the years when the Munich air disaster song was always sung when the rs played them.
65 Posted 04/12/2019 at 18:11:23
Also, to all: for the ignorant (me), what does "thieving Scouser" mean, or refer to?
66 Posted 04/12/2019 at 18:13:59
One of the things that really pisses me off, and I refuse to accept it, is the "lack of housing" down south. It's cheaper and better for everyone concerned to flip that and move the work (back) up north and rebuild the poorer areas of the north, than to keep building on greenbelt down south and keep sucking people down to the better paid jobs in London.
For me, it all goes back to this attitude of not giving a shit about places like Liverpool, and laughing at the poverty here instead of really trying to do something about it, which would be better (and cheaper) for the country as a whole.
