  1. I am still playing pretty regularly. The league's were a lot of fun! For those interested there are still regular pro games and the homestory cup is on now https://www.twitch.tv/taketv
  2. Generally xG is the best method available for predicting future games, more reliable than actual goals scored (which is open to far more variance). The main reason why I posted it is because I have never seen a number as low as 0.1 for a side (especially a home side)! It also shows that those people saying how we missed so many chances - actually you should only expect to score 2 goals on average with the number of chances generated in the game. It is easy to over-estimate the probability of a chance being scored.
  3. xG for tonights game 0.1 vs 2.2
  4. It is certainly fun being a Liverpool fan these days - every game is a roller coaster!
  5. I thought it was Atletico Madrid that were responsible for most of the cheating and gamesmanship in that game - despite having the ball for 3 times as much time Barcelona still managed to commit more fouls apparently. Every time any Atletico player received the ball (after the first 20 mins when they went 1-0 up) they did everything they could to pretend they were fouled to get out of trouble and waste time or to try to even up the numbers of players on the pitch. There was only one team trying to play football for most of the game. Suarez theatrics aside all the worst fouls were committed by Atletico players including a ridiculous two footed lunge that got away with just a yellow in the second half.
  6. I know this thread has just turned into a place for people to vent about Liverpool but come on you are supposed to support the team. The whole ethos of the club is to support players through thick and thin. Henderson clearly gives 100% every time he plays for Liverpool and even plays through the pain barrier these days and your comments are ridiculous. He has been an important member of our squad for a number of years now, and yes his form has dipped recently and for a lot of this season but that hardly warrants the kind of abuse you are giving him.
  7. I am still on all the time and would be happy to play some 4v4s, or any team games for that matter. I have played almost no lotv and the one or two team games I did play I was terrible as things are so different. Its really disconcerting feeling that the last however many hours playing are thrown out of the window such are the major changes but I guess it will only take a little time to learn new build orders.
  8. No idea how we made that so difficult for ourselves - the first Villa goal was a terrible goal to concede but their second was just a great cross and header. Sturridge makes such a difference for us and that ended up winning the game today with two great goals and he could have had one or two more. His link up play with all the other attackers especially Coutinho is so good. Thought Ings did really well too, worked really hard and was unlucky not to get a goal.
  9. First Liverpool game I haven't been able to find a stream for in ages - it doesn't sound like I missed much! At least we got through. Angel you are really boring in here. Almost every other post is just you saying the same thing about Rodgers over and over again. We all know your opinion on it by now.
  10. So you are saying you have to go back 4 years to find Klopp performing better than Rodgers in a much easier league with a relatively better team. What happened since 2012? Dortmund are doing great this year without him.
  11. In the 3 full seasons since Rodgers has been manager of Liverpool (2012/2013 - 2014/2015) he has a better average points per league game for Liverpool than Klopp does for Dortmund (1.81 vs 1.79).
  12. First time I have been to Anfield for a few years and what a disappointing result . I didnt hear any boos from the kop but it was frustrating. Can seemed so reluctant to push forward and there was so much space ahead of him all game long. Ings must have played himself into contention with that performance and it was nice to see sturridge back. Most good things we did came through moreno so I am sure he will stay in the team too. Milner was very poor today I didn't think he had that kind of performance in him everything he tried today went wrong.
  13. Sakho played well I thought with some really incisive forward passing, I really wish we would play him in the league. A lot of youngsters played some of them pretty well but it was asking a lot of them in the end especially once Can moved back into defence. It was a shame Ings couldnt score his chance to finish the game but a draw was definitely a fair result.
  14. By better managed do you mean as a club or do you mean their manager is better? As a club, five years ago Man U finished 22 points ahead of Liverpool and they have over the five seasons since spent around 140M more (net) than Liverpool and spent many millions more on wages and you think the teams are roughly equal in quality so obviously they are doing something a lot worse than us. If you mean their manager, this is the guy who has somehow managed to spend around twice as much as Liverpool last summer and leave his team with 1 striker who has any experience of playing in the Premiership in the entire squad (assuming Wilson goes on loan). Their second choice striker is Fellaini! The only reason why Liverpool have a hope of keeping up with Man U is because they have been so badly managed over the past few seasons.
  15. Did anyone watch lilbow win WCS Europe? He lost in the final last season and won this season beating most of the top koreans in it on the way, and giving him enough points for entry for the end of year WCS finals - an amazing performance.
  16. What is the third last mission? I got to Prosperity Tower (which I thought was the last mission in the game) and kept hitting little bugs or oddities and it put me right off . I dont remember any hard matrix bits. I loved the previous two games but never seemed to get into this one much. There is just so much dialog!
  17. Liverpool are currently 1/7 on at the bookmakers to finish in the top 6 and 20/1 to finish in the bottom half so if you actually believe this I would suggest you put some money on it as you can get very good odds.
  18. Why is it lucky to win 1-0 away to Stoke when you win from a great long shot and your opposition create no decent chances? At the moment we should be comparing ourselves against Man U, Arsenal and Tottenham as they are the teams we are most likely to get ahead of if we manage to get top 4 not Chelsea or Man City. I think you can argue that Liverpool have started at least as well as any of those teams. Obviously things are going to get difficult from here with our run of away fixtures.
  19. It must be hard to properly balance the decker type since if there are difficult hacking sections you wouldnt be able to get through them if you had chosen to be something other than a decker, therefore you must be able to do those with one of the hired help and therefore it is never going to pay to be a decker. I think in both the first game and dragonfall having a rifle made it easiest, being a mage next easiest and most of the other types are after that. I think for dragonfall they made big improvements to the viability of melee types although I still found it a lot harder with them than a rifle or as a mage. Surprised at the complaints for the game here recently though, I loved dragonfall and there is genuinely re-playability with different types since the combat plays out quite differently.

    Arsenal are completely crushing Lyon in a friendly on BT Sport if anyone is interested!
  21. This is disgusting. It is a game of football.
  22. I genuinely dont believe it is about money. Sterling could have signed that 100k contract back in January with a release clause and still moved just the same now albeit with around £1m more in wages from then to now. The way Sterling and his agent went about their business cost Sterling a lot in wages and was a big risk that it could have cost him a lot more if Liverpool didnt sell. Obviously now he can build himself a new house out of £50 notes so its all irrelevant but I think its clear that it wasnt money that was motivating Sterlings actions.
  23. I am really sad it has actually happened, I kept hoping that somehow he would apologize and stay with a new contract with a buy out clause like Suarez. Unlike many others here I think 49M is about right - Sterling is the best 20 year old in the world and given what Shaw cost last summer and the influx of more TV money it sounds about right to me. His wages are completely ludicrous though if it is true - usually you expect a smaller transfer fee in exchange for big wages (e.g. Yaya Toure, Van Persie, Sanchez etc. - players that want to leave but for who the wages are so high that the overall transfer is very expensive) as thats another 50M over a 5 year contract . I really hope the money can be spent on someone who improves our team as there is going to be a big hole in the team without Sterling.
  24. The "size" of a club is effectively its revenue and it is a fair assumption that clubs will be about as good as they are in their revenue ranking in the long term. The "global fanbase" of a club plays a fairly pivotal role in this - Liverpools commercial revenue accounted for 47% of its income in 2014. This is exactly why Man U had no problem bringing in players with big reputations despite not being in the Champions League last year (Di Maria, Falcao, Valdes), and why Liverpool have no problem taking players off teams like Southampton. I am pretty sure if there was real interest from any of the bigger clubs than Liverpool Clyne would have chosen them instead, but it seems as though there wasnt.
  25. I have been having this problem on my android phone for the past few weeks and had no idea what was causing it, I even ran a few cleaner apps to try to clean up whatever was on the phone thinking I had something running I shouldnt have. I would have never expected it to be NSS, which I have uninstalled now. It is really unacceptable for an app which appears to not be running to start serving ads randomly. stefcha - how can you track the cause of the pop ups?
