Re: I would go slightly more 'in' than that something like this
Obviously accidents can happen in football. Like when VVD tried to snap James in the first minute. Or DCL in the 2nd. Or when Robertson kicked out at one of our players (a straight red) or when mane already on a yellow tripped Mina off the ball. We have to accept this. As we had to accept Suarez, Gerrard, Kuyt and the greek grock performing career threatening tackles on our players in this fixture.
But we won't moan. We won't set up a vigil. We won't stoke up fans to send death threats. We won't brief our friends in the media to bleat like Mo Salah if anyone gets near him in the box.
Instead we will move on and keep a dignified silence. Like Liverpool did when asked to apologise for Heysel something they only did 25 years after the event.
With this in mind if you would like to reconvene in October 2045 I will come up with a suitable apology along the lines of
'it was bad but so were they'
'they did it first'
'the grass was to blame'
'the ref was corrupt'
'the VAR was corrupt (unless in our favour)'
' ALEX FERGUSON'
'gang of thugs'
etc etc etc etc etc
Can I also say on behalf of everyone in Britih football we wish Ajax all the very best tonight and hopefully someone puts Mane/salah/Henderson in the stand and finishes off the callous premeditated job we started and conspired with the FA to carry out as punishment for the big project bollocks from last week.
Something along the lines of "Jordan didn't intend to hurt anyone, and has apologised to VVD (hopefully he has?), but some of the criticism has been OTT and we will not tolerate abuse towards any of our players, media needs to be more responsible, these games have a long history of passion and red cards for both teams, so let's calm down a bit, we're sorry he got injured and wish him well with the recovery, we know how he feels as we've suffered with long-term injuries ourselves, but time to move on"
people have any rights to do anything that might not suit the narcissists' agenda, its whining, its accusations of media bias, of conspiracy by the people entrusted to rule on matters of dispute, its grandiose attention-sucking and self-pity, its awful red-orange hue, its appeal to the emotional parts of the brains of people who really should know better, its desire to deflect from its own real crimes by pointing at the minor imperfections of its opponents, its inflammatory rhetoric and incitements to violence, its inability to understand itself as anything except the beloved centre of attention, and its aspiration to reward the already-rich, the already-powerful, and the already-media-beloved with even more power, money, and attention.
They can #### right off. Pickford deserves and needs support from the club and all associated with it, and I hope the authorities will have a word with Liverpool regarding their player and manager's comments tonight in Amsterdam.
