This. He was keen to tell all of ours to get up when they went down and then did his utmost to get Maupay sent off by rolling round theatrically himself albeit recovering miraculously so as not to need any treatment. He also clumped Marcondes round the head and so to see him shin it past his own keeper was SWEEET! He didn’t hang around in front of the away fans for long after doing it and had got to the centre circle in a matter of seconds.

Liverpool at present
Waking up after midnight, feeling miserable after falling asleep while following the first half on grapevine.

Referee not calling game off. The thought of Nick Dreamboy Logan running naked through the streets must have influenced his decision

Sorry, don't get the reference? Did Bywater do something odd?

I only ask because I was at Burton's home game vs Dirty Leeds on Boxing Day. Leeds got a free kick about 25 yards out from the Burton goal and there was a whole kerfuffle with the ref trying to sort out the wall etc. Meanwhile, Ledds' O'Kane was standing alone on the edge of the Burton 6 yard box, pretty much minding his own business while he looked at events in the wall etc.
At which point, Bywater crept out of his goal and pulled O'Kane's shorts down round his ankles from behind!

Thing is, hardly anyone had seen what had happened, except that O'Kane was cute enough to stand there, pants down, so that when everyone inc the ref did look to see what was going on, it was obvious what must have happened:

Utterly bizarre, with the net result: Bywater booked, Hernandez scored from the free kick, Leeds won 2-1.

As Watkins was setting up the free kick just before the first goal, Bywater was obviously desperate to catch the attention of the referee.

He proceeded to bellow ‘refereeee refereee refereee’ in a ridiculous voice. The piss was appropriately taken for the rest of the match.

Forgot that one. Think that was one of a few occasions when the ball seemed to have gone well over the touchline and the lino said not. He was a liability!

He's a thick redneck, he was a League 1 stopper at his very best about 6 years ago, completely out of his depth in The Championship. One on my hate list as another big, bully boy who hits the deck like he's been hit by a sniper if anyone goes near him. Always think of duelling banjos and Deliverance when I see him, he also runs like he's sh*t himself

Think we were after him a few years back when he was at Crawley ��

The story goes that Tarkowski was second choice after McFadzen. Fair to say we got lucky that we didn’t get our first choice.

Isn't the champagne moment the own goal? Ahead in the sixtieth minute without a single shot on target! What more do we want?

Not what I heard, I thought one person wanted him but MB people were very keen on Jug Ears as his stats were so impressive. I’m not 100% but think he was our first signing initially identified as a possible target based on data?

Was that one person Warbs?

I’m not 100% but bear in mind Matthew believes in youth and pedigree, he was against the signing of Macca but allowed Uwe to bring him in. McFadzean would have been a strange choice for MB, a big, agricultural centre back who was hardly a non league overnight success or rising star.

The whole experience. Having spent 40+ years watching Brentford in these sort of surroundings it was good to go and taste it again.
Game wasn't much to write home about but expectations had been set very high after last year.

Knowing that Ollie was going to stroke that in and the relief that followed
