    It should be a Brexit Britain 'Our Precious Union' project. Rangers and Celtic into the Premiership with three years relegation immunity; Linfield and the four next best prepared Scotch teams up into the Championship; and so on and so on until all them tin-rattling breadline clubs around the bottom of League Two are dead.

    Celtic and Rangers would be top six clubs after a year or two with ease

    Do 'Old Firm' fans want to do that, or stay in their current tinpot setup?

    They’d get relegated immediately but would probably be lucrative investments for some Kuwaitis or Omanis and would end up doing well after 5 years

    Saudi buys one and Iran the other?

    They'd be top 10 at best long term (save for a City style takeover). I don't see what they have that Newcastle don't in terms of following etc, for all the good that has done them.

    Celtic could be bought out by some pretend Irish Americans, and the Crown could support Rangers by periodically forcing Catholic churches to sell any lead that they might possess.

    Liverpool 1.71 tonight, considering dropping my balls on it. We're not ready to compete with these sorts of teams.

    Liverpool: Adrian, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Milner, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah.

    Subs: Lonergan, Kelleher, Wijnaldum, Firmino, Lallana, Shaqiri, Brewster, Origi, Hoever, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.

    I reckon Chelsea will be more suited to this type of game. Oh, I see all of the kids have gone in the bin.

    If PSG had spent the £200m on him they'd probably have won a Champions League by now.

    Liverpool are always so crap in these half-intensity games.

    You could tell that Abraham wasn't going to score.

    He couldn't even look at the goal.

    General quality of pens has been very good between this and the dinner plate.

    Abraham is a bit unlucky but then it's probably about fair given I don't think it was a pen.

    He does get a mention, to be fair.

    I also remember Teddy Sheringham outside-of-the-boot-ing one onto the bar at the 2002 World Cup against somebody (Argentina?), Ian Wright saying people at home would be "creaming" themselves and Crisps going, "Ian, please, people at home will be having their breakfast."

    I think he looks decent, but probably a risk.

    'Clear and obvious error' is going to become the new daylight or whatever that offside interpretation was.

    About 80% of what appears on the BBC website these days seems to be 23 year olds finding a tweet and writing several dreadful paragraphs around it.

    The other 20% is people complaining about racism/sexism in their field.

    I once saw Andy Lonergan score a goal. He launched a kick out of his hands and it bounced over an obese Kevin Pressman’s and into the net. Glory days.

    People are going mad about this on the FantasyPL subreddit So many players have brought him in for this game, it would be hilarious if he's unfit.

    Liverpool now have no less than 5 goalkeeping options listed.

    Quick Giggles, get 'qweeveen' in there before he disappears again.

    Is there actually much difference between goalkeepers, say, 11-1000 in the country? Obviously the top guys are top, but all other pro keepers seem to be varying degrees of solid.

    They're all usually pretty solid until they make their debut for Liverpool at which point they inexplicably chuck one into their own goal. Adrian might be the first to have avoided this, can definitely recall Brad Jones and Adam Bogdan bowling in with a couple of crackers after Ming had made enough errors to let them have a go.

    If Lonergan plays I want him to have 'Andy' on the back of his shirt.

    Fabianski went from being considered a joke at Arsenal to being described as one of the best keepers in the league without playing any differently.

    Adam Bogdan nailed it at Liverpool. He must have been furious when they loaned him out.

    All he had to do was not spack the first shot he faced into his own goal.

    Oh sorry, it wasn't even a shot.

    VAR rules it out for handball.
