United were awful and in the first half were like a boxer on the ropes waiting to fall, Liverpool should have been out of sight by half-time.
I can't see them losing more than one game this season so, in hindsight, maybe us losing to Man City was for the greater good.
I can't bear the though of those bastards winning the title.

How we managed to lose to them is a mystery!

Without doubt, Man City have the best squad and man for man they are superior to everyone.
Our neighbours are getting away with everything so far including injuries.
They are matching City game for game and point for point. City play great football but you can just see them slipping up in the odd game. Those who shall remain nameless just seem to grind out results regardless.
Nightmare. I'm going to midday mass tomorrow and going to light about half-a-dozen candles.

RS 3 Saints 0,
City 6(six) Saints 1,
Spurs 3 Saints 1.

Apart from our game yesterday, I think we've done okay away to the Sky six. In my opinion we didn't deserve to lose the ones we did. With our final away game to one of the Sky six also being our last game of the season (Spurs away), I'm expecting a big change of fortunes in our other away games.

Can someone shed light on something that seems to go unnoticed. Is it just luck that they win the toss and shoot towards the Kop second half nearly every game, or is there some other reason? Law of averages would say approx 50-50 over the course of a season, right? What the fuck is going on?

One of their media darlings, Phil Thompson, has started dying his hair – he looks like a corpse with a wig on – and how Carragher keeps his job after spitting?

Those results don't count. They were part of the Hughes transition. They are now in the Hasenhuttl transition. That's how it works isn't it? New manager, new transitional period (of unspecified length, during which the manager is immune from criticism and results don't matter).
20 Posted 16/12/2018 at 19:35:26
Can you imagine what next summer will be like? Hell on earth for us Blues.
21 Posted 16/12/2018 at 19:42:53
The BBC and Sky will be creaming themselves like never before. It will be hailed as the greatest Premier League title ever. No doubt the government will declare a national holiday so the whole country can celebrate a fantastic title win.
22 Posted 16/12/2018 at 19:44:36
A mate of mine here in Sheffield is a staunch Wednesdayite and his way of dealing with the local rivalry is to just ignore them. If the Blades are doing well so what?
If we blues continually get wound up by the RS, it's not going to do our health any good. Just accept that they are very good and ignore the luck.
23 Posted 16/12/2018 at 19:49:34
Anyone got the number for the Samaritans?
24 Posted 16/12/2018 at 19:50:08
That's all well and good if you live in Oslo or Bournemouth or Kuala Lumpur. If you live in town it's a nightmare!
Even though 99% of the Orcs haven't been to a game in fifty years the stick is horrendous, especially as they are churning out results and we are making fools of ourselves.
I think that before the season started we were quite chirpy but, after the opener at Wolves and the piss poor results compared to those arseholes since then, the shit they're spouting is worse.

City's quality was undeniable, even with most of their heavy hitters out of the starting XI. It often felt like they had an extra man out there, which is why it was so difficult to dispossess them or maintain possession ourselves.

Non-Scouse Blues will perhaps wonder what the hell I'm on about.

Tim, easier said than done, mate. I'm sure you're a great blue, dedicated to the cause like all of us, but you're about 80 miles away.
We can't just turn off and ignore it. The local papers and radio will be ramming it down our necks. There will be billboards all over the city showing them with the trophy. As Mike says, next summer will be hell. And before anyone says we shouldn't let it affect us, unless you're a hermit or a monk living in a monastery, then it's going to be a nightmare few months.
Fuck, I'm already dreading it. Come on, City, save the country from a nightmare that will be celebrated for years.
31 Posted 16/12/2018 at 20:46:15
Point well made. Here in Sheffield, I am sheltered from the nightmare. Just think, a Premier League and Champions League double!
Mind you, we're not alone. Think of the fans of Espanyol, Torino, Munich 1860, etc.
32 Posted 16/12/2018 at 21:29:24
Come on, lads leave it for now; let the future take care of itself.

The theory that Southampton beating Arsenal, means that Everton, an allegedly better team than Southampton, should also beat the 'Gunners' is flawed; it doesn't work that way. Each match has never been played before and will never be played again; incidents which dictate results, occur in games.
It may have taken a long time for me to arrive at this point of football appreciation, but because I accept what the 'Football Gods' lay before me, I find that I enjoy matches, to a greater degree than I did in my youth.
I can accept that there are some who take a different approach but, apart from outright anarchy, I don't see an answer to their anxieties.

I've lived through them winning loads of trophies, and I lived near Anfield. If I'd worried about them, I would have been spending a hell of a lot of time worrying. I've just enjoyed the 8 trophies we've won. That's all there is to it.
37 Posted 16/12/2018 at 23:44:19
Im with Rob about the love in for the RS, especially from the media, they'll go crazy, a new BBC channel will be dedicated to them, new national holiday here and in Norway.
Both my brothers are RS, a lot of family and friends too, I swear it seemed like they were texting and calling before Pickford's brain fart in the derby, they were that quick to rub it in.
Praying they fuck-up sooner rather than later.

I've said to reds a number of times that, given the finances they've enjoyed, they should have won a lot of trophies over the last couple of decades. Their finances haven't been vastly different from Man Utd's in terms of investment on players, but Utd's trophy haul has been massive, whereas Liverpool have won next to fuckall. Maybe that's why they hate man Utd so much.
Even if they won the Premier League and Champions League this year, I'd just reiterate to reds that it's about time. Given their lack of trophy success compared with the scale of investment, reds are a very frustrated bunch. The media hype about them is no compensation for them, it's simply media hype, including the BBC.
I know we've finally had some investment over the last 5 years, but quite frankly it pales compared to that of the likes of Liverpool. In this sense, our position in the rankings is not a big surprise, and it'll take a lot more investment to get us really competing at the top.
Regarding Liverpool's luck, they've had the 'run of things' to a degree this season, but luck runs out. And regarding their luck overall, they make cock-ups on a big scale (it's not just us making cock-ups in a derby match).

They are full of it but got a shock when they tried taking the piss before they knew me properly. Plastic cunts!
