Yes indeed, the very best of luck to Liverpool tonight. I'm quietly confident they'll do the business.

In other matters, T.D. You have won our Liverpool/ Palace challenge this season.
Palace's 38 point handicap start proved not to be enough and fell short by 6 points,  with 44 being the margin.

I did think the mark was a fair one and no complaints at all but our 15 draws, only equalled by Brighton, proved to be costly for the bet and also in our finishing position in the league.

So, inbox me your address mate, or Wassap it and I'll be sending your prize of a bottle of Bolly to Merseyside for you to enjoy.

Well done.

Thats football though, nothing is ever certain, its totally unpredictable over 90 minutes. 25 shots to 3 was it ? And they lose 0-1.
Diaz isn't ready for the very top level yet, and Trent had an off day, both going forward and for their goal. Liverpool looked tired and devoid of ideas, but could have still won. Its been a fantastic season, but not landing at least one of the two big ones leaves me feeling a little empty. Can they continue at the same level next season ? Im not so sure, Imcertainly not as optimistic as Jurgen.

Fergue also had the benefit of being the big soenders and having first dibs at all the best talent for this countrys domestic competitions

He soon scarpered once it was obvious where the game was heading

To be fair he was smart enough to realise it and got out at the top so fair play to him, Cloughie carried on for to long for example and ended up with a relegation and a tired man to boot.

Yup. As great a manager as Sir Alex was, he probably went on a bit too long, (as was his right imo), and probably kept his toes in matters after that. Still a great though as was Cloughie.

Btw sonts, massive congratulations on getting back to the top tier. It's been too long and it's great to have you back.

Ferguson had his faults but still among the top 3 Scottish managers of all time imo.

Feels a bit churlish but the game seemed a bit of an afterthought following the mess outside. Just took me back to 89 and feeling disconnected from friends and spent more time texting them and scanning social media to check they were ok.

As for the game itself, we were just shattered. Said it for a few weeks now. Freshness has evaporated. Don't think any of Thiago, Fabinho or VVD would have started if it had been a lesser game. Both full backs were running on empty and Salah just out of puff. They ran their luck a bit with some last ditch blocks and a world class keeper doing world class things but it was a bit rope-a-dope where we tried to pummel them first half and had nothing in the tank after that.

Parade was the perfect end to it all though. Still won 2 cups and had a cracking season and it was good to all come together and celebrate it.

Not a great advert for Paris and the view is that city has some serious social and crime problems - even more so than London.

You can lay Palace @ 3.2 to finish in the top 10 and if we're a neutral I'd be all over that for sure.

Palace finished on 48 pts last seaon so if they pergfotm to the same level  Liverpool need 98 points  which is 6 more than last season!!

Lets meet each othr half way and go for 47 points or we could go for something totally different - the team with the lost/ least draws.
