    If this were true, Lo Celso would've come off after 20 minutes.

    ...and Moura, who given that Parrott is now in the 'Foyth Zone', is our only remaining forward...Parrott doesn't exist because Mourinho's 'protecting him', so that he can give Malachi-Walcott 5 minutes.

    There's no sense to any of it.

    There is. Maureen played his strongest possible line up (in his mind at least) given the injuries. He made out last week like he'd given Levy some sort of ultimatum about prioritising either the CL or PL, but not both. Today's line up plus the late, late subs suggest that when that choice was made (I don't think it was as Levy - who isn't Ed Woodward - probably just told him to get stuffed), he somewhat bizarrely chose CL and went all-in for it, holding on to the faintest hope that we'd claw our way back in until the 80th minute when every fool and his dog could see we were done.

    So - now that we successfully prioritised losing in the CL, we can go back to prioritising losing in the PL. Which is so much simpler and less costly in terms of travel.

    I don't blame Maureen. I don't hate him for it either. He has never faced a situation even remotely close to what he's dealing with now, and it shows. Boy, it shows. He genuinely and sincerely hasn't got the foggiest clue what he is doing. Because nothing he has seen or done in two decades as a manager could have prepared him for this.

    He played 3 at the back again...and it was **** again.

    Aurier was ****ing dreadful again but he's undroppable. Against any decent opposition, he's a liability.

    We played Winks in a 2 again...and it didn't work again.

    Gedson was again notable for his absence for 8o minutes - why aren't we using him?

    Parrott is going to have to be used or Moura, our only remaining forward, will join Son, Kane and Bergwijn....he seems not to realise this or care.

    If these decisions were coming from another manager, the pitch forks would be out...and rightly so.

    Levy, ENIC, Mourinho, Winks and Lloris have all been trending on twitter.

    It ain’t pretty reading lol.

    They should all belt up and do their jobs.....if they haven't forgotten what their jobs are.

    ****ing grim ain’t it.

    Players are to blame for too many half-cocked performances and attitudes. How many individual mistakes do we make leading to goals? There’s no legislating for that.

    Mou is to blame for some baffling selection choices and for going full Poch at times on the subs.

    Poch and Levy and the rest are to blame for the stagnation and rot that has set in at this club over the last 18 months/2 years. There was a point where we were 2/3 signings away from being where Liverpool are now, and we ****ed it. That can’t be forgotten.

    I’m usually an optimist but even I’m struggling right now. All I can hope is that we ****house our way to CL somehow and Mou instills some backbone over the summer but I’m not holding out much hope.

    We are in dire need of hungry players.Must be one or two or 6 in lower leagues....if we have scouts out watching. Who found the original Deli I wonder?

    Feel like packing it in till ENIC **** off but I don’t see that happening but I’m sick of being forced to share Levy’s vision and ambition for the team I support.

    How old is tight **** Joe?

    I can only assume Julian Nagelsman's stylist is Tony Adams.

    That hideous gold on black three piece and tie should be quarantined.
