It sounds worse than it actually is as the average age for a granny in Liverpool is 29.

Call me crazy, but I thought Rooney looked good. Let me re-phrase that, I thought he played well.

At this point I would swap looking good for Hockaday if it meant we got the points we need.

The way the fixture list is set up it sort of feels like we are always coming from behind, and this puts extra pressure on us to perform.

we just need to win and maintain our lead. If we don't slip up then the pressure then gets transferred on to the chasing pack.

Imagine the frustration they would feel knowing that no matter their best efforts they just can't catch us.

No slip ups and we will win the league... simples.

I feel the same RR. Today, Sunday, Thursday, Sunday definitely feels like we've singled out. Why haven't WBA been moved to play last ? I know it's a case of ' well it doesn't matter when we play we just go out to win anyway' but it must be in the players heads that atm they need to keep winning. Their matches didn't need to be moved anyway and in such a crucial time I think all of these games should've been played at the same times.

Huddersfield losing 2-0 at home to Luton - Huddersfield in real danger of dropping into the relegation places if their form continues.

Luton's form since lockdown has been terrific apart from a 5-0 defeat to Reading in the match after playing us - seems like they tired themselves out against us.

What's with Mitrivic doing the cross on his chest as he walks out. Seems his beliefs went out the window when he left one on Ben's jaw .

Interesting that Mitrovic comes straight back into the starting XI despite Fulham winning all 3 of the matches when he was out.

2-0 good goal. Fulham on a good run, glad they've got WB to play yet .

Also that puts the pressure on Brentford , and derby have an incentive to get something tomorrow
