Surprised they didn't make a dvd on this one
This is NOT a Dad hat. Not sure if it's a trend in England, but it's just the current style. Dad hats are floppy, unstructured ball caps that you might see an unfashionable older man wearing, like a hat he may have gotten for free somewhere. It goes with the kind of thrift store/ugly clothes trend that we see now. Some people call it "normcore" Allison's cap is too new, structured, relevant, and quality to really be considered a Dad hat.
THIS is proper Dad hat https://tinyurl.com/y96av3p7

Try using Brave.
It blocks ads, trackers and malware by default. No add-ons needed.
I believe it's using a base similar to Chrome. So if you use Chrome as your default browser, you won't feel that much of a difference.
£6.5m (€7.5m) for Taiwo Awoniyi is a good deal for LFC.
He was valued half that less than a year ago, spent six seasons on loan, and never played a game at Liverpool.
In the mean time do yourself a favor and pre-order the Man Utd season review!
>Records tumbled following the appointment as Ole, together with a coaching team that included Sir Alex Ferguson s former assistant Mike Phelan, inspired wins away to Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs among others - all matches you can relive here in this season review.

Wijnaldum didn’t do well protecting the soccer ball there. Do you know what is good at protecting? Our sponsor NordVPN, bringing you this soccerball coverage live from Dunkin Donuts arena. We’ll be back for the second quarter after this interval!
It would make a good Christmas gift for a Liverpool fan (colleague or friend).
If 2+2 = it’s happening to the fifth power then it’s happening = 1.31950791. Thats 1319.50791% when converted to percentage. If you graph the fifth root of 4 you get this plot . Which you can clearly see is in the shape of an S moving from negative 10 to positive 10 in both the X and Y axis. The S is basically proof that he’s signed since that’s what it stands for and the negative 10 to positive 10 is his move from being the number 10 for juve ( his old career) to our number 10 ( a positive bright beautiful future). I can go deeper but do you guys really need more proof? The math checks out this is scientifically proven.
Taken from /r/soccer - https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/2c0wec/marco_reus_has_reportedly_rejected_a_contract/cjatyrf
>There were no talks between Dortmund and Reus over a contract extension. Reus' contract at Dortmund runs until 2017. Instead Dortmund offered Reus a higher salary (7 Mio. Euro instead of 5 Mio. Euro), if he agrees to remove a clause from his contract. Said clause would allow Reus to leave Dortmund after the upcoming season for a fixed transfer fee of 35 Mio. Euro. Dortmund and Reus met in May for a first round of negotations, without any immediate results.
And that happened in May.
Not pleaded guilty per se but hasn't challenged it either, so he's definitely going to get banned. Question is how long for.
He fallen out with Klinsmann and Pep. For all Klinsmann's faults, the man knows a hell of a lot about health and fitness. There have been several articles like this one written, and the man doesn't deny that these are his treatment methods. Homeopathy isn't medicine, it's taking advantage of idiots. He outright refuses to publish anything about his 'treatment' methods as well, which is usually a pretty big red flag in the medical community.
Love this. It’s quite validating! At our company, we use a variation of a method called Topgrading to interview people. Our company now has one of the best cultures in the country, according to objective surveys. Most of our attention is on the candidate’s fit for our culture (what they will add, what will be challenging, etc.). Seems like Klopp does a similar thing.
Top, top defender and person, I hope he returns back someday to coach.
EDIT: In some strange twist of fate or epic coincidence, the North West football reporter for the Daily Mail (@DominicKing_DM) just tweeted that Sami's back at Melwood. Could this be the beginning of a new coaching role?
SJK conceded late on but go top on goal difference as HJK Helsinki (who do have a game in hand on SJK) lost at home and Rovaniemi (who have played one game more than SJK) were held to a draw at home. I think it's safe to say the title race will go down to the wire, with 3 teams now level at the top of the table.
This Allan loan deal has made me way too interested in the Finnish title race.
Edit: looks like it actually took him an entire 16 minutes to score, not 10.
Countdown Timer for any wondering.
For any Americans you can buy it directly from New Balance on Amazon. No names or numbers but an option if you don't a player on the back.
As a reward to signing up to NordVPN there was a competition to win Liverpool tickets. Randomly checked my junk email folder on Wednesday and there was an email from Monday saying I had won tickets for the Chelsea game on Sunday, but tickets are limited and on a first come first serve basis. Replied and have heard nothing back. Feels bad man
Our last match was December 9, 2009. This subreddit was barely a few months old at that point. In April 2010 there were only 54 subscribers.
That means that it's only possible that roughly 0.0027% of us were around back then.
Basically you're going to need a light membership for you and your wife, you need one each. You need to purchase that then in July there is a bulk sale for games in the first half of the season. Hopefully you should be able to get one in that (it is tough, I got one in the first half but none in the second half of the season).
There is a guide here for the second sale for this season. The one you'll have to take part in is very similar.
Don't really know much about the train to London but seems like it'd be easy enough for Americans, always see on here how you see massive drives as nothing hahaha. One thing you'll want to book early. Rail travel here is stupid expensive, https://www.thetrainline.com/ is probably the easiest option for you as I imagine you don't want to be messing about with split tickets in a foreign country. Going off peak will save you a fair bit.
Hope this helps.
This is the cheapest I have seen. $87.99 before tax. Free shipping (maybe with NBRewards account). Klopp them before they are good. Not all sizes available.
Yes, they are super comfy. You need to size up 0.5-1.0 size.
I picked 5 here a few weeks ago, Barrios, Quintero, Sarr, Milenkovic & Bentancur.
I'd add to it a few more:
Many more impressed but were more familiar names.
Saw this on twitter earlier from @anfieldonline, found it interesting:

I have no affiliation with the page, but if you're trying to do something similar to that, you could use IFTTT (If This, Then That) to update a twitter page every time a specific subreddit receives a new post.
a good idea - look into AceStream - this is wiziwigs page about it.
It plays a HD stream of most games that works in a similar way to a torrent, downloading small chunks of the stream from different sources and piecing them together for you to watch. the more people that watch it, the better the quality of the stream. it tends to run about 10-30 seconds behind live, so that the new bits can be downloaded and put together, and your video doesnt stop.
generally, about an hour before the match, wiziwig will put up a load of links, with some being acestream. Or check /r/stream_links (which also has a post on acestream) for good streams. pick one (bloodzeed or delvey are normally good quality) and enjoy.
Get them one of the players’ books. Or Bring the Noise by Honigstein.
James Milner, Andy Robertson, and Steven Gerard also all have books .
Or they gambled that Arsenal wouldn't take them to court to force the clause, which they didn't.
John Henry has pretty much admitted that this is what happened.
>"Luis Suarez is the top scorer in the English Premier League, which is arguably the top soccer league in the world," Henry is reported to have said. "He had a buyout clause of £40m. Arsenal, one of our prime rivals, offered £40m plus £1. What we've found … is that contracts don't seem to mean a lot in England – actually, in world football.
>"It doesn't matter how long a player's contract is, he can decide he's leaving. We sold a player, Fernando Torres, for £50m, that we did not want to sell, we were forced to.
>"Since apparently these contracts don't seem to hold, we took the position that we're just not selling.
Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called Miller's Crossing, here are some Trailers
I honestly believe it's one of those things you can't really explain to someone. You can try, you could spend weeks thoroughly researching and writing a 15,000 word essay and it might cite statistics, psychology behind it, history and many other things, but you, as someone that doesn't follow a team (soccer or otherwise) in that passionate way, can never really understand it, and trying to find a logical, rational understanding of this fandom demonstrates that. It's not logical or rational, it's deeply emotional.

I would assume that they could gain access to everything on your computer by using SSH (basically logging into your computer) and copy/delete/move etc whatever they wanted. The odds of someone doing that is probably low, but it's good to keep in mind atleast. :)
Norway have great coverage on PL, FA Cup, League Cup and CL/Europa League, so it's not worth the risk for me, as I pay for these services anyway.
I stopped using Hola unblocker for the same reasons. Can't speak for Zenmate, as I simply stopped using addons like that.
FotMob is good you would need to Filter Liverpool and English Leagues to get it on top of screen
If everything else fails ... use google now (cards)

You could look into Sling TV as well.
If you get the 'blue' package you get nbcsports , fox sports 1 then if you add the sports package or the spanish package you get bein sports and bein sports espanol. plus univision, unimas and univision desportes
$30 you get Premier League, La Liga, Liga MX, MLS, Euro 2016/2020, select World Cup qualifiers, UEFA Champions League, World Cup 18/22/26, Women’s World Cup 2019, Bundesliga, Europa League, International Champions Cup, select USMNT and USWNT games, select Mexico games, select England games, Euro 2020 qualifying games, DFB Pokal, select friendlies, UEFA Super Cup, Rio Olympics, FA Cup, NASL, 2017 Gold Cup, Championship, Capital One Cup, Ligue Un, Serie A
It's available on Roku and Apple TV plus mobile and comp. Sometimes they cut you a deal and give ou a free roku for signing up. I used it briefly for normal channels and did find it to be a little unstable at times. But that was early in it's life.
cant you just use 10 minute mail instead?
it generates a random email address so you can sign up for shit, confirm the account and then the account gets deleted.
>Champions League final to be broadcast free on YouTube - 1st June 2019
just sign up for NordVPN (or any other VPN really, lol), install the desktop app & from then on it's a simple point & click. It this case, you want to obviously choose England and bang, you will show up as connected from England, thus you will be "eligible" to watch it. If it doesn't work, restart your browser.
How does NordVPN acquire enough revenue to pay for an LFC sponsorship without selling its users’ data?
E: This explains it all. It’s a cyber security services exchange from the club for subscription service boosts.
> NordVPN will target Liverpool fan with internet security solutions across their devices offering a 30-day money back guarantee for new customers signing up and a special offer on protection for three years at the equivalent of $2.99 per month.
>No value or term was given for the deal which will activate primarily through digital media with a focus on educating supporters of the potential risks of using unsecured networks (such as public Wi-Fi in sport stadiums, hotels, cafés, airports and restaurants) and the importance of fans encrypting their internet connection to ensure privacy and safety online.
>Marty P. Kamden, Chief Marketing Officer, NordVPN, said: “Over the years, NordVPN has become a leading online security solution, with more than eight million users worldwide. We provide a cost-effective, well thought-out and fast virtual private network – protecting users anytime, anywhere, on any device.”
>Liverpool managing director and chief commercial officer Billy Hogan expounded the virtues of on-line safety, saying: “Increased awareness of cyber security is incredibly important in our fast-paced, instantly connected society. While individuals are ultimately responsible for the information they share, having an extra layer of protection is highly recommended. We’re delighted that NordVPN has become our first Official Cyber Security Partner.”
Windscribe has 2GB/month free. They have desktop clients, browser extensions, and mobile apps. I believe ProtonVPN is free and unlimited on Android. I'm not endorsing either of them, and suggest people do their own research, but just letting everyone know it's very easy to get around geo-blocked content.
best VPN I've used by far (tried out a bunch of them when I moved to the US, plus I travel a lot) is ExpressVPN. Really solid with not much bandwidth loss, ever. It's a pay service ($12/mo) but they have a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you don't intend on keeping it, just cancel after the final. I know it works great for UK cause I watch the BBC iplayer & ITV all the time using it.
Yep, it's an expat bar/restaurant that broadcasts a lot of sporting events, with Liverpool being one of the most popular clubs in the country I'd assume they show the games. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g293983-d4419335-Reviews-Mike_s_Place-Jerusalem_Jerusalem_District.html
Yeah i know right! Besides its not even racism as Judaism isn't a race its religion.. edit - here is the definition of racism no where does it say racism covers ethnicity, or religion, just race http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/racism (Just a note for the guy below saying racism covers ethnicity, also ethnicity is commonly mis-used as well, race and ethnicity are not defined in the same way as each other)
No better source than John Henry himself.
"The fee for Torres was dependent on what Newcastle asked for Carroll," Henry said, explaining that Liverpool wanted Carroll, plus £15m, to replace Torres. Together with the £6m sale of Ryan Babel to Hoffenheim, that effectively financed Liverpool's £22.8m signing of Luis Suárez, meaning the club bought two strikers but net, spent almost nothing. "The negotiation for us was simply the difference in prices paid by Chelsea and to Newcastle," Henry said. "Those prices could have been £35m [from Chelsea for Torres] and £20m [to Newcastle for Carroll], 40 and 25 or 50 and 35. It was ultimately up to Newcastle how much this was all going to cost. They [Newcastle] made a hell of a deal. We felt the same way."
I get where you're coming from. I've heard it too, not a lot but of course there will always be some, especially from the older crowd.

EDIT (just in case): I don't know if that tweet bot hits up comments too, but the tweet says:

> Due to Manchester United being banned from playing their first two home matches in Old Trafford, after hooligans had thrown knives into the away section at a match at the end of the previous season, their opening "home" games were played at Anfield and the Victoria Ground.
Edit2: aaaand a huge article
A few turkish people posted audio clips of themselves saying Emre Can. You can find a lot of pronunciations of players' names from native speakers on Forvo.
You can get the train straight from Manchester Airport to Liverpool Lime Street ( Liverpool's main station ) it takes just over an hour. Then get a bus from Lime Street to Anfield in about 20 minutes. There is also a bag drop off at Lime Street to save you pissing around at Manchester Airport.

I bought my dad The Red Machine by Simon Hughes for his birthday and he loved it. It's got a bunch of interviews with players from the 80s, both big names and lesser names. I haven't had a chance to read it yet though but hopefully will soon.
Have a look at a site called "ita matrix software" (I think). On the train/mobile so I can't link it right now. It gives a good perspective of flight prices across so many airlines.

I don't think you can put a value on what he's done...wow. The only gift would be an experience...it's got to be Pool Vs man united or a big match at Anfield. He will lose his shit if he finds flights and tickets in a card...I know I would!
Get him return fligfhts to London for $500 (sorry couldn't find liverpool flights!)
Join him up to become a member of liverpool's supporters club http://www.liverpoolfc.com/membership/membership-register-your-interest (ticket access is good for members)
Book him something versus, man united, man city, Arsenal, everton.
(I didn't mention Chelsea because he wants to watch a football match!)
I thought it looked cool so I set it as my wallpaper, I usually use this site to find 4k wallpapers.
I'm not actually from Portland btw. I actually had to go find this image again on the site to tell you what it is.
Has some really pretty pictures on there, I definitely recommend it. I used to have London up for a while because that's where I live but I see it every day so.
Excuse the potato quality, but this is exactly what you're looking for. If memory serves me correctly, the soccer player surprised everyone with his upper body strength.
/u/JimReilly is right, it is the Southampton fans singing "Come on you Saint". Its a very common chant. We often sing it Come on you reds, the Spurs fans sing Come on you spurs, etc.
For people not living in England, use hola unblocker to simulate being from England.
You can then watch the match if it is streaming live, whether it be on skysports (do they do streaming?) or itv etc etc. Make sure you go to hola unblocker and then type the url from there.
edit: looks like it wont work for Sky. We can use NBCSports (and a "US" location"). Hola allows you to pick which country you want to be from.
I started the project at the beginning of this season and its snowballed from there. Ive not done anything LFC related before then, even though Im a lifelong fan, but I have produced other football themed work in the past, such as this... https://www.behance.net/gallery/Leo-Messi-91/7833469

44 Years With The Same Bird by Brian Read is generally excellent I thought. Gives you an insight in to the relationship between a fan and the club over what was an insanely successful period. It speaks to how being a football supporter can touch every part of your life.
It's very well written. I ploughed through it in no time. Amazon link here:
May I introduce you to our club's sponsor, NordVPN!
But no, seriously, unless you're really short on money I highly suggest getting some VPN, most can be had for a few bucks / quid a month on a promo and you can access almost any geoblocked content with one click.
Not used TunnelBear so can't say. I have a 'lifetime' pro account with Windscribe and can't fault it, I use it for football streams and Netflix. The mobile app is really handy for region-locked content.
I’ve loved NordVPN for the six years I’ve used it. It’s network-based as blocking is probably the best out there. I just got a weird feeling when I realised Nord was a sponsor to one of the biggest football clubs in the world, I got a little paranoid. I used to be a software dev and computer engineering student. Left that life for Economics (mainly Industrial Organisation and other Microeconomic subfields regarding market structures). Before you even replied, I looked up the partnership and edited the original comment.
Nah fully legit. NordVPN is an official sponsor, part of the their promotion was a draw for tickets if you signed up.
They got back to me and said I was too late for the Chelsea tickets but have offered me Wolves tickets instead!
You can go to this link:
And compare various VPN feature yourself. IMO NordVPN scores very high on this comparison, but feel free to judge yourself

I studied soviet history a bit in University. I remember my professor mentioning this, but it's pretty easy to confirm with a google search.
This is what I came up with.
For our 5 (6) games:
I can see some big wins for City and some surprise draws too. Arsenal picking up most of the points. Leicester losing some steam and United probably closely matching us in terms of points gained.
As much as I'd love to see us in 4th/5th place at the end, I can't see it happening until closer to the end of the season, assuming results go well.
EDIT 2: Simmed the rest of the season. https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=528E6E0BE5C98F15!1043&authkey=!AJDKXxJbsIkKvlU&v=3&ithint=photo%2cpng
3rd. 4th, 5th and 6th will be close and we'll lose 4th on the last day with a loss to West Brom 'cause fuck Pulis. Chelsea will slowly climb the table to finish 8th, with Everton just beating them on goal difference. Newcastle will have a good run of form somewhere near the end to avoid relegation, but Sunderland having no such luck.
Just thought I'd let you know that 9jack9 implemented the new crest system over at r/soccer using this website. I have no idea how easy/hard it would be to implement, especially after all the work you've already done, but I figure one day, wouldn't be a bad idea, help give the mods a break, let's people change their crests as often as they want, etc.

All men he signed, for little over €25m (£23.5m). All men he sold too, for around €170m.
We lost Sterling coz of bad management not the money.... His agent said he would stay even for 900K per week. Read more here for example or just google it.
Sinclair and Rossiter- They clearly didnt have a future in the club. Sinclair 6th striker and Rossiter 7th CM. They are young and they want to play what a surprise... Look how much money they earn in the new clubs....

The Kop by Stephen Kelly. Its a great read - lots of tales of the most famous liverpool matches over the years as told by fans who were there. The blurb on the linked review does it more justice than me but it really is an excellent read and different from the usual journalist take on events
Sent him an email. I'll let you know when he gets back to me. In the mean time, Gradel scored from one of the rare backpass freekicks.

Ace stream is the best i have found so far even better than sopcast.
Fun fact, Jurgen Klopp was presented with a list of transfer targets by the scouting team with Mohamed Salah at the very top. Jurgen himself initially had his doubts but eventually agreed on Salah. What a signing he's been!

Try DAZN and ExpressVPN. Works flawlessly for me since the last season. You will need a location in Canada. With that you can literally watch every PL match, even on your phone and on demand. Just make sure your internet connection is fast enough.
use a VPN set to the UK and go to
bbc iplayer will ask if you have a TV license - just say yes.
my favorite VPN service is ExpressVPN which gives you a 30 day free trial, but there are many VPN services out there. Just avoid the free ones as they have loads of pop up adverts and are annoying. (as an aside, the paid VPN svc are really affordable if you wish to keep them beyond the free trial - worth it for me as I like to keep up with UK TV)
ETA: I don't think the 2016 version is available anywhere in the US yet. I couldn't find it anywhere today when I searched.
That's just an example but yeah it's not worth to get it only to turn off the commentary, not to mention you'll need at least 1 external speaker with it.
I think there are dedicated 5.1 audio splitters which will be cheaper but again you'll need at least one external speaker.
