Frostbite Falls, Minnesota with Bullwinkle and Rocky the Squirrel giving the play by play and colour is my guess.

Same people who couldn’t get a fixture draw right now think they have the authority to do this kinda shit.

Forza Super League.
You realize that Super League had more flaws in 24 hours than UEFA in two years?

This is bullshit.

On the players, what is the likelihood of Salah and Mane missing this?

My god we’re going to see Gagliardini starting against Liverpool aren’t we..
Not sure if Vidal is infinitely better either. Imagine if Gags can lock one of Salah or Mane down like he did against SMS...

We might be better off moving Bastoni to LCM and staffing Dimarco/Darmian as LCB. The other option is to play 3-4-1-2 with Sanchez behind Lautaro and Dzeko. It will be a 3-2 or 4-3 kind of game. So let's see if Inzaghi will come up with an innovative game plan this time.

Man we could really use Nandez for this game. Liverpool play with extreme intensity. Frankly I don't see how we could grind out a result without Barella. I think Salah will play because Egypt are pretty shitty in the AFCON. Wouldn't be against a change of tactics for this game tbh. 442 with Vidal Brozo double pivot. Perisic and Dumfries on the wings. Long balls on Dzeko/Dumfries, lock the shit down with 2 defensive lines, no risk taking in attacking build up. Play Alexis instead of Lauti. We will get eaten alive if we try to pull our usual pressing and build up. It's a shame really cause with Barella I think we would have a chance at beating them by playing our game.

EFL cup, first game out of two, was played between Liverpool and Arsenal on Anfield, it ended 0-0, with Xhaka leaving the pitch (red card) in 22nd minute.

Apparently Ben White had a monster game and out of 17 shots Liverpool had, only 1 was on target. Here's to Pool having a bit of a downfall in the next few months. (Yes I know, no Mane, no Salah, but still)

Liverpool was shit yesterday, couldbn't break a set defence if their lives depended on it, and the Arsenal gk did everything possible to let them score.

Minamino had the miss of the month, maybe the season.

If Trent Arnold plays this way against us, I think he will press charges on Perisic for humiliating him.

Yeah, I saw the match and agree. We all know that they were w/o Salah and Mane, but still I am thinking more and more that we should have a chance against them. It really depends how we would be wasteful in front of the goal..

Their midfielders are so so, I’m sure we can dominate them in this area but their strength is not there. They rely on quick transition and suddenly playing high tempo, high pressure for 15 or 20 mins, Trent and Robertson turning to WB. Need to examine games against Chelsea, Tuchel handles them well. We have to take advantage at home, playing second leg at Anfield is dangerous.

Arsenal fans (lol) were louder than the Anfield crowd throughout the game. Such an overrated experience this Anfield thing.

Only Tottenham and Newcastle have a decent crowd from the big boys. West Ham's atmosphere is also overrated as fuck from those movies.



P.S: Am I the only one who doesn't like this song and don't get the hype?

That song is trash. Dreary and slow. It’s honestly depressing.

The Anfield thing is no joke though. Arsenal we’re the first team to shut them out all year in any comp.

Spurs? I've heard from a few friends that the new stadium acoustics etc is amazing and adds (creates) to the atmosphere. I'd never particularly noticed their fans before the move

lol wtf. Nandez is so 2021.

Also just wtf in general at this post :lol: come on mate, Inzaghi is not going to randomly drop his career-long formation and pull some flat 442 out of his ass.

New stadium is a big boost for them due to its design, but what I say applied to their old shitty home ground as well.

That song is trash. Dreary and slow. It’s honestly depressing.

Liverpool's atmosphere is only a thing on a few European nights and some big games. Overall, it's rather average. Average for England.

Arsenal and Manchester United home atmosphere is amongst the worst in Europe, not only the UK.

The "shut them out" part is true in almost all European fixtures. Covid is the reason it took a while since it last happened. And it applies to all English home teams. If there are traveling fans, they'll always be the loudest. In Premier League fixtures this applies to most shit grounds, including Arsenal, but you will notice that some clubs manage to hold their ground, such as Newcastle, Liverpool, Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Everton, West Ham and a couple of others. Bring foreign fans in, and the picture changes completely.


Best home fans in the UK are the Celtic crowd, hands down.
