Doddsy’s away day at Liverpool

Alright my hansomeessssss hooooooweeessss youuuussss doing?

Well, a very early start in the morning having retired a few years ago I didn’t know there were two 6 o’clocks in the day, but setting off at 7 o’clock am in the amazing sunshine asked the question was it to be an omen for a great day of football and entertainment, answer was not really.

Five people in the car today so that helped share the financial burden with the petrol costs

We travelled up M5/M6 and into Liverpool with a Costa Coffee stop where three coffees cost us £13. This cost of living bollocks is daylight robbery, yes anyway, into Liverpool, we arrived using the famous parking app. We parked a good 15 minute walk away from Liverpool’s ground parking in an Asda which meant we could pick up a nice few cans of beer on the cheap having said that a trip to Liverpool and into the pubs is always a cheap day out having only won four times here in about 80 years expectations were low, but enthusiasm as always was high.

The Arkells pub was lively as always, and it was a pleasure to see three motorbike police and six policemen ( Sorry police people) come running into the pub as apparently West ham Fans had taken over the Mic and we’re singing West Ham songs which didn’t go down too well with the Liverpool fans. It was quickly sorted and drinking resumed.

On entering the stadium, they are still trying to build that stand which apparently the builders who were in charge of it went bankrupt, so that’s why it’s taking so long to build, because if I remember rightly, they started building it six months before we arrived there last year.

The one thing you do notice in Liverpool is all the murals on the walls as you go around the stadium which probably increases the value of the houses by 100%. Also it begs the question how they managed to build a stadium in the middle of a housing estate which will house 60,000+ but we couldn’t, but weve had that conversation before haven’t we? Anyway, into the ground and the atmosphere as always this season at awaydays was electric. you know the songs the ones that they can’t seem to ban sign on sign on with a pen in your hand also you look in the dustbin for something to eat you find a dead rat and you think it’s a treat And of course champions of Europe we know what we are Just for clarity on the David Moyes debate the Away Fans still singing we’ve got super David Moyes so he still hasn’t lost the hard-core yet even though people on social media seem to still want him out The team was as expected in the first 20 minutes the performance I thought was very good just for clarity even after 60 minutes, we were thinking he needs to make substitutions at the game but We didn’t think any players had had a bad game. Now I’m sure that will change when we watch it back on the telly. However it’s fair to say Soucek had a good game, and most players I would say averaged 6.5 score. A couple of shout outs, paqueta really could have his own slot every single week if soccer AM was still on on the part all aboard the showboat this place is proper dirty with all the tricks he does. They are obscene he does staff PlayStation FIFA could only dream of you would break every finger in your hand, trying to press every button to do the tricks he does And then, on the other side, I have been a Agueres biggest fan however, every game so far this season. He has made a mistake at the game. I genuinely thought Salah bought a penalty but watching it back. It was a mistake by our central defender who am I to say, but I think it’s time for Dino, is the Greek Harry Maguire to be given a run in the team As I said above 80 years of her for when’s the fifth one was never coming. However, in the first half, if we had taken all of our chances we could’ve gone in 31 app having said that if Liverpool had taken all their chances in the second half, they could’ve won the game 6-3 3 1/2 hours to get to the game 3 1/2 hours to get home. The traffic wasn’t bad for a Sunday and of course I go again Lincoln away on Wednesday always love the visit up north to Liverpool and Everton not so much Man United and Man City We are still in the top seven as I speak and let’s be honest we would’ve probably taken that but we desperately need to beat Lincoln. Let’s hope it’s not another Kidderminster and then of course Sheffield United who on the back of the eight nil defeat might not even have a manager by the time we play them. As always, Brady out out out and as always come on you irons ⚒⚒⚒
