While I agree with the premise on Klippity Klopp - a serial whinger.

Think it is a very individual thing. You can run on the treadmill but someone else with covid may not be able to

I know what you're saying, but Klopp is talking about pro athletes. I think it's a " kop" out.

I definitely agree.

Will feel the same way if your injuries are used to try and get Sunday postponed off 1 covid case.

Interesting to see how the referee classed Xhaka's red card. Denial of clear goalscoring opportunity is just a 1 game ban whereas serious foul play is an automatic 3 game ban.

Hopefully he gets just the 1 game ban and plays the second leg.
2 game ban as its his second red of the season.

Some talk Arsenal may be requesting a postponement of the LC semi final 2nd leg.


I have a solution:

Play a penalty shootout on FIFA online to decide the tie between nominated representatives of both clubs.

Stream it and allow heckling by fans.

Isn't the EFL's postponement requirement a lot stricter? I anticipate this game will be played and our midfield of Patino and Lokonga will be smashed. Liverpool to win 2-0.

Not sure what the exact EFL requirements are. FA requirements for FA Cup 3rd round were games go ahead no matter what even if an U18 team has to be fielded.

EFL had a similar rule for earlier rounds of the League Cup. They have different rules for the semi finals. I'm not sure where the game can fit in with plenty of catch up games for Arsenal mid week over the next month or so (and one for Liverpool) plus European mid week games for Liverpool in Feb if it doesn't go ahead this week. LC final end of Feb.


It all would have been so much easier this season to just have a single leg semi final at Wembley.

I don't think Patino will play, I can see Chambers at DM or Odegaard deeper before that.

Every time I see Matip lately I get the feel he'll dribble through a defence and stick it in the corner.

Still can't understand the Arteta In crowd. Dominate for the first 20 minutes, don't get a goal, Pool adjust, Arsenal don't, once they got that first goal Arsenal never looked like scoring.

How many shots on target over 2 legs?
