Damn Southampton just flicking everyone off:) You can buy all their talents but their still going to keep on wining.
+1
Well they strengthened their team and used their funds well.
Tadic replaced lallana, pelle replaced lambert, and they got bertrand, mane, long and a few others. But yea they've done better than what most people including myself expected
Southhampton are just proving how much of a quality club they are and why they should be respected. Money well earned and it seems money well spent despite all the criticism they received.
Oh the irony...city and chelsea fans praising a "selling club":p
+5
^ I often praise you sometimes too :P

Is it me or are tadic and pelle better than lallana and lambert

Their form right now suggests that. Time will tell though.
Pardew is good manager . mike ashley is not good club owner

i feel how much pressure to pardew ,
I agree Booba. I think Pardew needs to be given a chance with a proper owner. On his day he is better than the AVB's and Brendan Rodgers. With proper resources he can even be better than Van Gaal, Ancelotti and dare I say it Guardiola
He was manager of the year 2 years ago. But if he does get the axe he'll leave with a pretty big severance package. He still has 6 years left in his contract.
That manager of the year seems more and more like a fluke every single week that passes by.

He did great getting them to 5th back in the 11/12 season, but it's gone backwards for him and the club ever since. There's been a massive investment in the club with nothing to show for it. They were never able to replicate the form they did that season.

Even though Mike Ashley said that he's not thinking about sacking Pardew even if they lost to Hull, which they almost did. Surely, time must be running out for Pardew.

Any capable manager should do better with a talented squad like that.
Well he did bring on some new significant signings and their going to take sometime to adjust together but the first mistake for me was Demba Ba's release clause. Ba and Cisse were something special, I'm not even a fan of Newcastle but those two were amazing together and feed off of each others talent. They needed to build on that successful team and then maybe they would have kept significant players like Yohan Cabaye but they were losing star players. Another problem with them is their CBs, I mean Coloccini/Williamson are not good enough and the fact that they didn't spend any money on quality CBs this summer was a bit shocking.

I did think Pardew was a good manager his not in control anymore and the club needs someone who can save this team and bring some wining attitude back into them and pushing them to win, someone who can take control. I think one way or the other Pardew is going to be sacked and Tony Pulis should be brought in considering he actually knows what to do with a struggling team. Hell Newcastle has more quality then Palace so I'm sure it wouldn't take him long to pull things together.
That awkward moment when Downing played better than Gerrard...
+22
It was always going to be difficult after losing best player in the league and this reminds me about the season spurs had after selling Bale and investing on 5-6 average players....130m spent and not a single player even close to Suarez quality shame!!
That epic coincidence when Liverpool are 8th and Southampton 2nd.

Exchanged positions. The transfer window went well. xD
+12
Better make sure you guys sing about it next match against City, don't forget.
+6
juggling the ucl has started to take it's toll...I always felt it would be too tough for liverpool the first time back..
ScouserDan - Naah..we all know which famous song fans love to sing..The slip song :D
+6
BIG PLAYer STEWART DOWNING !!! comon ,stop support famouse players and give attention to normal players who does their best and do much better
+1
We need a proper DM, haven't had one since Mascherano :(
I don't think conceding 2 goals in first 7 minutes can be attributed to CL. West Ham were quick off the blocks and bullied Liverpool for much of the early stages. Quicker on the attack, won most of the 50-50s. The defence was pretty atrocious tbh, whether it be 2 or 3 at the back. Think Brendan needs to find the right pair and FAST (stating the obvious).
+3
It won't be as awkward as Lampard playing vs Chelsea in a Man City Jersey.
^It happens more often than you'd think. It won't be awkward, just like it wasn't awkward when we beat Drogbatasaray last year.
West Ham were just all over Liverpool, like Surajloks 12345 said they were quicker in attack and won most of the 50-50s, not only that they picked up loose balls in the middle of the park and miss passes and turned on Liverpool to bounce on the opportunity. Liverpool couldn't get themselves back in the game because West Ham wouldn't let them.

I thought Downing man marking Gerrard was brilliant (read: annoying as f**k). When there's 10 men behind the ball, and the source of attack stems from one player, it makes sense to limit/pressure his options.
Yesterday Downing and the week before it was Agbonlahor.I guess teams have found out the weak link in our team.
If Suarez played, Liverpool would have won
@Rajmahal
They already sold one to Barcelona...how many more do they have???
A team of Suarez's vs a team of Costa's...

A team of Suarez's vs a team of Pepe's...

So is Ozil off the hitless for people now or did he not score his goal as well as he should have?
1 game doesn't make up for months of poor performances, but he was good today.
Funny stuff

That's brilliant, thanks for sharing.
Ozil is pulling it off
FIFA finished it's internal inquiry on corruption in the 2018 and 2022 WC bids. The outcome of this to be announced early next year. However, the subject matter may never be divulged. So much for transparency. This is what you get when an institution as big as FIFA polices itself.

The conversation behind closed doors must have sounded something like this.

Hey guys, are we corrupt?
Um does taking bribes from Russia and Qatar really count?
Kindof but who's watching out for it?
Us.
Ok, so we're all good here.
Tell Sepp to stall this until next year until we've finished sweeping this under the carpet.
Oh, and also tell Sepp we need a bigger carpet.
Meeting adjourned!

Surprisingly the FIFA prosecutor is urging for the matter to become public. This is strange because it might show that FIFA have a checks and balance system(obviously not a effective one).
If you think only Russia and Qatar were partaking in bribes then you truly are naive. Same goes for if u think anything will change after blatter steps down.
Who said only Russia and Qatar? I only mentioned those 2 countries because they are the ones being investigated. FIFA is corrupt to the core.
i kinda assumed cause people keep concentrating on those two and ignoring the major problem which is fifa. i apologize if i insulted you. that was not my intention
No worries mate.
Home away from home?

Welcome home Chelsea, We have missed you :D, We have a parking space reserved and we also heard you like to park buses, so we put a bus in your bus so you can park while you park.
+6
Thanks for the parking space...I suggest you have a ambulance parked next to it..Because the driver and people inside the bus are crazy jerks who love running over opponents when they want to.
+8
Lol Bazinga.

Let's hope this is an entertaining game. The two blue outfits owe it to the viewers. Hardly gets as big as this during this season.
We are conceding goals like no tomorrow and City are win-less in 3 games, there will be goals in this game.

(Not to mention both teams are looking for a good performance following their sub-par showing against German opposition mid-week)
+5
Those damn Germans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

^that's a phrase the English language has used way too often.
^Not without good reasons TBF.
"Analyzing the network of passes between soccer players reveals that one of the world’s most successful teams plays an entirely different type of football to every other soccer team on the planet." Some of you may find it interesting. It doesn't take a study to see that Barca has a style of its own but it's interesting nonetheless.

In coming "soccer" comments
+2
What's soccer?
+2
One might argue the same points about Chelsea. A strategy built to combat Barelona. No-one used the term "parking the bus" before Chelsea did it. And a pre-emptive LOL! to the comments that are sure to follow. ;)
Typical article which claims to be clever while stating the obvious by anyone's point of view.
soccer is football...
+2
@Chelsea61: No one used parking the bus before Chelsea did it? lol.
That term was ironically coined(or more likely, went mainstream) after Mourinho used it to describe a 0-0 draw against Spurs under the awful Santini.

FIFA is demanding that officials return watches that were given in preparation for the 2014 World Cup.

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9476429/fifa-orders-officials-to-return-watches-handed-out-at-the-world-cup

"The CBF, which co-operated with the investigation, produced records indicating that it obtained the watches from Parmigiani, a CBF sponsor, at a price of $8,750 each.
An independent appraisal of the watches determined they had a market value of just over $25,000 each, later confirmed by a second appraisal in Zurich."

Hmmm.... wonder what happens to those watches after they're returned to FIFA.
They use them to tell the time.
+10
Read the whole article. It says the watches will be donated to a charity in Brazil.
Magath's job is already on the line..Fulham's form is just abysmal..Leader's Nottingham forest really ripped them apart
Never rated him. Especially when he started questioning Holtby's attitude (no-one works harder)..
fulham 'fully' heading to doom
well, he's sacked anyways.
Portsmouth mark II.
