FSG have made some bad mistakes for sure, including the ESL (which as we all know was just about money) to trying to get 'non playing staff' onto furlough. At least they finally listened to our howls of protest and backtracked on both.

But when compared to the very dark days under the two broke cowboys Hicks and Gillette its, ike comparing chalk and cheese. Under FSG stewardship, a number of trophies including the CL and the Holy Grail of the PL have been delivered while playing exciting attacking footie. The main stand has been re-developed with plans for tha Anfield road end. £50M has been spent on brand new training facilities and academy at Kirkby replacing /Melwood.

Season ticket prices have been frozen for a fifth year Happy (albeit this was as a result of fan protests.)

So, like all Liverpool fans I know, I really don't like the fact that Liverpool now have 'American owners', but before that it was the Moores family who ran the club as they held the majarity of the shares for over 50 years. If I recall correctly, at the time David Moores sold out to Hicks and Gillette, the (valid?) excuse at the time was that they could no longer compete with likes of Roman Abramovich and the like.

the sad thing about the ESL is that its a better format than the new champions league apart from the 12 not having to qualify
Report pushkin99 May 3, 2021 7:07 PM BST
That is the whole point GAZO. How can it ever be a better format when a priveleged few hog the competition, devoid of any prospect of relegation?

No thanks, and that it was rejected out of hand by the vast majority of supporters from the so called 'big six' teams, says everything u need to know about the ESL.

Leicester were far better in the cup a few weeks ago than United so not sure it would make much difference if he did pick the strongest eleven.

With another game on Thursday to come though, United pretty much assured of second spot and a chance to keep all of the 'Reserves' happy he may well pick a far weakened team tonight.  May do the same even on Thursday.

When you say #"Absolute joke of a team, cheating twats" I have two points:

1.  That joke of a team is better than yours at the moment.

2.  How are they "Cheating", with so many games in such a short space of time they are bound to rest players aren't they to be fair?  Also it keeps the 'Reserves' happy by giving them a game and also who knows he may do the same against Liverpool for the same reasons?

They're fair points surely?

I completely empathasise with your frustration loui, but its not United's selection tonite that will mean we will miss out on the CL. We have had so many chances, all squandered, most recently with the late 1-1 draws against Leeds and then Newcastle.

If Leicester go onto win tonite, it pretty much means we are praying for the Arsenal to win at the Bridge tomorrow, even IF we can then go on to win at OT on Thursday. If Arsenal only draw tomorrow, it seems likely Leicester/Chelsea will likely carve up a draw which in all likliehood see them both progress at our expense.
