damn right.  Hell, I was planning to make it over to the local Liverpool supporter's pub for this, until work turned a should be simple job into a 7 hour screaming nightmare requiring overtime last night...

I suspect this has been put this early for the same reason they've likely put the Glasgow derby on at the same time: less time for the fans to get hammered in the pub and so something dumb.

The last thing Liverpool needs at the moment is crowds of fans partying in the town center.

This could be a season defining game though for both sides, Liverpool haven't looked as fragile as this in ages and Everton haven't looked this good for even longer,

Isn't Liverpool on Tier 3 lockdown (read: no pubs) right now?

Good point. Supermarkets will still be selling though.

The good news is we probably won't get any sectarian chanting from the old firm derby going on today.

The temporary away changing rooms at Goodison being in the car park feels oddly on brand.

The results from last game week

Cyrene and myself both had huge weeks from the midfield that propelled our scores. But I had TAA in my back line and 7 goals allowed gave him a -1 on the weekend and that's the difference.

MANE!

So, we expecting another double figures match?

(The epl hasn't had a single goalless draw yet this season)

Pickford's little arms had nothing to do with allowing that one. Excellent strike

I made Grealish Captain this week. Which means villa will be dreadful.

Thank you! I'll update the sheet now.

No, please don't be hurt Virgil

If VVD was inside there then it's a penalty and a red.

Might be a red anyway if VAR look at it.

Hi all.
Good to see Mané back. & he's scored already.
Watching a BT sports stream here & getting ready for the commentators to start fawning over Hames & Thiago.
Usual write up of last time is here
As for the refs, well the big hitters in Dean & Taylor still making a sluggish start with Attwell & Coote proving to be a couple of ruthless bastids.

Dean has no gig this week though so the gap at the top likely to open up even further

Even if he was offside, they can still card Pickford for violent conduct though right? He really shouldn't be getting away with that challenge.

Yeah, he was offside; but it was so reckless from Pickford that he should be a retrospective red for it.

Nope, being offside basically nukes every possible infraction or review there iirc

As does the video guy. I've always been in favour of bringing shiat refs under Disrepute charges same as players/managers are.

The claim that offsides stops everything is ridiculous. If Pickford's an outfield player and does that after an offside, its a red without question

great, we lose VVD, and Gomez comes on....

How long until he blunders?  5 minutes?  2?

Absolutely. England had a player sent off for violent conduct AFTER the loss to Denmark on Tuesday, and that was just for biatching.

Liverpool without VVD is not the same team. I hope he's okay.

Everton's press has improved markedly, even from last season.

So you can murder an offside player? And they don't blow offside live anymore?
Seems like a great idea.

I mean, being that close to the box offside apparently now means prison rules: shank or be shanked.  And yeah, the not calling offsides live part is going to result in way more of these calls.

A red for fouling when you're the last man would be scrubbed by an offside call, but violent conduct can be called whenever it happens.

Otherwise you'd go 'oh, he was offside so I'll just punch him in the face'

Ask her what she thinks of the Everton attack and if it can break down Liverpool's defense if they shift to a 4-4-2 without Van Dijk

I have this as 2-2 in the predictor, I'm beginning to think I was being too conservative.
