    Good idea to put 200m into Anfield now that they have got the playing squad absolutely spot on.

    I keep forgetting that Pique used to play for Man Utd.

    Can't believe they let him go. Guess he's no Jonny Evans.

    Didn't really have a choice, couldn't guarantee him 1st team action and he has bar a DNA, got 6 million for him whilst still relatively unproven albeit with a CL medal :D

    I think he's one of these players that's great in as pain but I don't think he's that suited to the PL week in week out.

    Enjoying this Being Liverpool. Proper car crash. Brendan is an awful speaker. No idea how. No idea how he did what he did at Swansea.

    I don't think he's that bad. Perhaps lacking a bit of full-on intensity, but he's the more thoughtful/focused type. Maybe he's a bit different off-camera, they do only show snippets of the team talks.

    I liked the envelope ploy, though I think the lighting may have shown that there wasn't anything actually in them...

    I'll have to catch up with it at some point. Is it call on Five On Demand?

    It must annoy Barca that they have to buy back these players that they trained in the first place.

    I caught the end of that, interesting viewing. I like the way they give some of the scousers subtitles for the US audience - it's offensive in a sweet way. I'm starting to think Rodgers gets his team talks from Batman movies however.

    When Fergie pulled the same trick 20 years ago it turned out there were no names in the envelopes. It's bound to be either that or Brendan's own name. Usual motivational management bullshit.

    So far the only notable things about Being : Liverpool have been how much of a twat Ian Ayre is on his fuckimg motorbike and Brendan's relentlessly weird way of saying "okay" over and over again.

    "You can only trust yourself. Blah, blah blah. You can only trust the fans, your family, the club."

    So that's not just yourself then, Rodgers, is it? To be fair I have no idea what other managers say to their teams. Could well be the uninspiring, repetitive, dense stuff coming out of Brendan's mouth too. Might not need much for footballers, given how thick they are. Noticed the subtitles too, Trowel. Particularly on Carragher.

    Really enjoyed the QPR documentary. That was good.

    Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our four...no... Amongst our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

    The surprise is that there are always new weapons just three seconds around the corner.

    I'd really like to know what Fergie says to his numbnuts. Also intrigued what Mancini says. Bet it's fuck all. And Di Matteo... probably sits in the corner playing Angry Birds while the mega cunts give instructions about whose partner they're all going to gangbang and in what order.

    American TV often uses subtitles for perfectly understandable English.

    I see Carl Jenkinson is with the England squad.

    Has he actually earned a place with them or are things so bad that Hodgson is just calling up any English player who shows signs of being alright at one of the big clubs (Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd and Man City)?

    Has he done the "I am United's rekoning" speech yet?

    He must have massively improved on what I saw of him last season. He looked woeful then.

    Yes, Jenkinson has improved massively and has certainly, in my opinion, done enough to warrant selection.

    I'm not sure how I feel, tbh. The Chelsea match looms ever closer.

    Heh. I kept an eye on the Cov score yesterday (lols) as my mate is a big Coventry fan, and I used to go with him whilst I was doing my masters at Warwick...

    but that's about it :(

    If we lose that game we should sack the manager etc.

    Carl Jenkinson has played for both England and Finland at youth level, got to cap him before they do.

    Wanders in on day one. Tells everyone to keep on doing what they were doing before. Lovingly rubs the neck of one of the youth team players.

    Anfield to be biggest stadium in the Championship

    The extensive works will begin once all of Stewart Downing’s shanked crosses and Steven Gerrard’s 90-yard passes have been cleared off the roof.
