    Wow, you won 1 game... A nice pick of OT last night, bit odd for the greatest club in the world I might say.

    Well Official attendance figures are 74,669. But I guess your random picture with no context is more accurate.

    I have no interest at all in attendance figures, but that's the figure which was published.

    Quite the dullard aren't you.

    What a dominant performance. As shit as our defence can be, surely we have the scariest attack in Europe atm

    ManC says every game is sold out as well. Pictures of the game tell a different story.

    Anyway, yes it was football porn for LFC today. We'll see if Fat Sam sitting at home tomorrow with the whole Everton first team instead of playing a dead rubber Europa game makes any difference on Sunday but I doubt it.

    oh, if the club says so then it must be true. Tickets sold does not = bums in seats. Arsenal are notorious for having a "sold out" stadium with empty seats:

    "The Daily Mirror's chief football writer John Cross, who was at the game, said: "Despite tickets being reduced, it was far from being a sell-out. It’s always strange at the Emirates how you can see big gaps but it’s always a sell-out." Arsenal record lowest ever Emirates Stadium attendance

    7-0 and Moreno Injured, you must be happy with that double victory.

    Spartak were beyond awful though, I think Man City has you beat quite easily there so far this season.

    PSG has scored the most goals in CL group history and has the most goals in 2017 calendar year. Granted some of their games in Ligue 1 are a farce but whatever. I'd probably take their attack over ManC's. With that said we're not far behind and I'd take Salah/Mane over Sterling/Sane.

    You can only beat what's in front of you, I doubt your team would have won 7-0.

    If we're noting Ligue 1 comp is a little underpowered...and note that while Liverpool have 33 goals scored in the Prem so far, and United have 35...(3rd and 2nd, respectively) then City having 46 I think they could lay claim to top attack in Europe.

    Fair points but I think this was only the 4th time this season we've had our main front four, Firmino, Coutinho, Mane and Salah, all playing together. It's that combination I think is one of the most fearsome attacks around atm.

    It's hard to argue against you guys after 7-0 today, that's for sure. City haven't been as ruthless at times of late, either. Couple weeks ago they just looked on cruise control putting up 4 or 5 every time out.

    Underpowered or not you still need to score the goals and most think PSG will progress pretty far in the CL. Neymar like him or not is really, really fucking good.

    I don't care how many goals ManU scores, it's a Mourinho team. Any goals scored are just icing on the cake for shutting a game down. Pretty much the antitheses of what people think about when talking about the beautiful game and it makes me laugh just knowing Sir Bobby and Red Nose are crawling out of their skin watching his teams play.

    Notice you ignored City's total (and the gap between them and 2nd/3rd, which was most relevant) completely. I agree about PSG, and absolutely agree about Neymar...but I do think City doing what they've been doing in the Prem is a little more impressive. PSG should go far in CL. Be curious to see the Ro.16 draw...because of how certain teams didn't top their groups, there could be some pretty rough draws out there for some clubs.

    I'm more surprised at how well all the English sides have done so far in the CL. Might even see a winner this year.

    I was stating that I would prefer PSG's attack over ManC's by noting they should go far in the CL and Neymar is good. Guess I wasn't clear in that I didn't specifically mention ManC but since I was responding to your comment about how you that they were the best in Europe I thought that would be clear. There are some really, really bad sides in the EPL. Maybe not as bad as some of the Ligue 1 sides but I don't think it's that far off so just because they have a bigger goal gap between 1st and 2nd doesn't just blatantly mean they are better.

    She won't win so who cares. It's not even a paying job oddly enough.

    So there is a blizzard forcasted in England on Sunday? With how packed the December schedule is I can't see how they could reschedule either game very easily which means they'll try to play them, could really affect the games though.
