    I'm actually kind of optimistic about tomorrow; our "kids" are better than the first team at the moment so hopefully they can do it - shame they're often hampered by one or two experienced players though.

    The end of this weekend's game was unbelievable yet strangely unsurprising - you could see the players lose concentration when the walkout happened, Mignolet did his thing then the team just crumbled under the pressure they invited on to themselves. Never mind - I hope Klopp's got some good ideas for the summer!

    I'd like to add Henderson & Milner to that list, both absolutely useless. But Moreno is the worst - directly responsible for several loses this season.

    I'm not sure I really blame Benteke for not being very good in a Liverpool shirt; he's a big guy built for aerial battles in the box, there's not a lot he can do when the other players slowly dribble it into the corner then lose it or scuff it into the shins of the first man. He's never going to run around chasing people all day, he's not built for it.

    Last night was woeful. Can’t really complain about the goal, doesn’t matter if it was offside or not – Stoke were completely out playing us & if our defence could actually do their job the chance would never have arisen; where was Moreno (I know, halfway across the pitch)?

    I think we were massively lucky to get through; standard of passing was ridiculously low, movement was non-existent & the few pathetic “attempts” on goal we did have were scuffed from miles away. I really like Klopp & he is implementing his high press tactics well (and I honestly believe that if he can’t get Liverpool back to historic glory levels no one can) but either he isn’t getting the tactics across to the team well in training or the players just aren’t capable of understanding/executing them. Henderson, Milner, Moreno & Mignolet (despite his penalty saves) are all not good enough. Flanagan was good though, glad he’s back.

    I hope Everton do it tonight but I can’t see us beating either in the final.

    Has to be, I didn't realise the telegraph did them though. Almost every paragraph has a punchline.

    Will any new joiners have to trawl through nearly 5 thousand pages of our drivel quality posting before they see @Manc_Ronnie's warm welcome? I dread to think what they'll think of us by that point (especially given the introduction).

    In regards to Klopp's impact - I was incredibly happy when he was announced (I honestly think we're punching above our weight getting him on-board) but I think it's too early to be getting over excited. I'm going to go with the 18/19 season being "our season".

    Well, that makes the little box my SMPc came in look budget in comparison & I thought that was extravagant!

    Yes it depends on the light; sometimes it looks black with white writing others it looks dark grey with lighter grey writing - quite difficult to capture on a phone camera though.

    New watch day; got a big birthday coming up this week so wanted to treat myself to a nice watch. Wasn’t going in to look at this watch as I thought they looked rubbish in all the shop photos but thought I’d may as well try it seeing as I was there – changed my mind instantly when I had it in my hand, the fit & finish is incredible, there are lots of little details that you can’t really see on the photos but in real life they make it look real quality whilst not standing out too much. And for me the size & proportions feel just right.

    I know!

    3 times a week, I pretty much just have to do whatever is free at the time as kit is so limited - try to do squats every time (which is the one I'm at least comfortably inside "untrained") then just do two other exercises depending on whatever I can grab/jump on. This is all based on my 5x5 weight though as I've never actually tried to do my max.

    It's definitely working, maybe just slower than if I was following a proper program. On the plus side my 2km rowing time is getting pretty competitive vs everyone else in there.
