timberland lansley boots Did anybody NOT celebrate with Raheem Sterling
I struggling to think of any player that hit the ground running as fast as Salah. We all knew he had pace to burn but he also as strong as an ox (not The Ox) and, crucially, he learned how to finish; those early season accusations of profligacy seem a long time ago. I hate to get giddy but he looks Liverpool best player since peak Suarez, and he posting the numbers to match. Long may it continue.
Quick gripe got the ball is fast becoming the most annoying phrase in football punditry. Exhibit A is Robbie Savage claiming Hart challenge on Calvert Lewin shouldn be a penalty due to the miniscule touch he got on the ball. Hart didn do enough to win the ball so DCL was still in possession when Hart followed through and caught him, therefore definitely a foul. I blame Arsenal fans for this as it all started with a Koscielny challenge about five years ago and they wouldn shut up about it.
Finally is there any non Utd (or Southampton) fan who didn celebrate Sterling latest injury time winner? It great to see a commitment to open, attacking football being rewarded and only the most bitter could begrudge them the inevitable league title. Oh hi Paul Murphy.

Why are pretending this title race is not over?
It is very likely that Jose will park the bus at Arsenal this Saturday. Meaning they will either lose or ‘win’ a precious away point like they did at Liverpool.
This would mean one point gained but two points lost on Pep’s City, who play West Ham on Sunday. a team even a 40 year old can score hat tricks against.
This would place United on 33 points A whopping 10(!) behind league leaders City.
Now bear with me as I labour to this point is the same 10 point margin with which PSG leads Ligue Un.
Mailbox, answer me this it is generally agreed that PSG will walk to the title.
Yet, when discussing City’s current form there’s this;
B ‘It’s only September/October/November
C ‘Wait till KBD or Silva gets injured’

Enjoying the Liverpool ride
Ok, that wasn’t exactly dull.
The ball didn’t go all the way out, so the first goal was fair enough. However, it was an absolute stonewall sending off later on. Keeper goes off, 1 1 different game. If I was a Stoke fan, I’d be pretty cheesed about that one.
Salah is a bloody God, it must be horrible defending against him. All the pace in the world and with his confidence sky high, his finishing just gets better.
That Stoke miss though do you get that many chances in one move and still not score?
Love us or hate us and most neutrals don’t seem particularly keen (slight understatement), you have to admit we’re part of a hell of a lot of entertaining games.
We’ll win sod all playing this way, but I’ve made my peace with that now. Let’s just enjoy the ride.
Raheem Sterling is strong, he’s skilful and now he’s turning up and delivering in the big moments. The boy is coming so good.
Did Pep really tell Redmond what a good player he is? That was the weirdest looking post match conversation ever. The fact he shook his hand makes you think he was saying something respectful but his body language looked so animated and aggressive.
Mo Salah is even better in 20 minutes against tired legs than he is for 90. This is frightening. He also rescued my fantasy football which tells you what a lovely lad he is.
Where did that Everton show up from?! The Rooney half way goal was so sweet, I love the fact he volleyed it instead of hitting the floated ball which Joe Hart might’ve recovered to save.
