Can you guys stop infiltrating every sports chat thread on here Laughing out loud

Was a bit surprised by the drop off in results given the squad Chelsea have. That's all. Nothing personal.

Think their missing wingbacks (Chilwell, James) are the biggest reason for the loss of form. They’ve gone from having some of their best attacking outlets to two old Spanish lads who offer less and less going forwards

We haven't beaten you for nearly 5 years. Last game at Selhurst Park was 7-0. Can't say I'm looking forward to it!

Hurt more than the 7 nil that. Knew as soon as Kevin Friend went to the monitor it was going to be given. He hates us.

Didn't know the final whistle was in the 85th minute when Liverpool come to Selhurst Park too now. We were still creating chances and looking a threat up to that point.

Alisson MOTM. Says it all.

Never a penalty in a million years that for Liverpool yesterday, it was all Palace in that second half creating chance after chance, ref/var thought ey up, better give Liverpool that 2 goal cushion again. Seen these ridiculous decisions go in favour of the big teams time after time this season, its blindingly obvious whats going on, all one big fix to maintain the status quo. I was as angry as the next man when the big teams wanted to break away and join a super league, but the more i see these kind of decisions the more i wish they did

I still haven't found a Liverpool fan who says it was a penalty as well as all the pundits, commentators, reporters etc

I can take losing to Liverpool as it's to be expected. 7-0 or 2-1. What I can't take is a referee taking away the chance of us competing until the end.

We were robbed of a penalty first half. KEvin Friend is a massive knob. Still angry about it.

The one on Ayew? If so, I’ve not seen it back, but it was right in front of where I stand and thought it looked soft at the time

Funny how he waved that one away much like the Jota one yesterday but then VAR actually looked at it giving Friend the chance to be the ultimate villain. He relishes in those moments. Little power trip for him. Smirking more at us at full time than Gerrard to the Evertonians.

Yeah, they slow it right down on VAR don't they, we were all seeing what he was seeing on the monitor and even in slow motion i don't see how they could class as that as a nailed on penalty, so how he gave it i really don't know, still baffles me!

Same happened to Villa in the Cup against United the other week. They will take an age to come to a decision in favour of a team near the top. They will look until they find something.

Bobby was offside for the second goal yesterday too but no chance of them going to VAR for it when it would only help out little ol' Palace.

Man City v Wolves was a disgrace of a game too. Never a red card and never a pen. Xhaka did exactly what Jimenez did a week later infront of the ref and didn't even get a yellow.

My issue isn't with Liverpool. You were better than us first 30 minutes and probably would have put the game to bed already if Mane and Salah were playing.

It's the officiating I have a problem with.

Never a penalty. Could see him change direction towards the keeper Laughing out loud

Refs and officials are absolute wank in our league getting embarrassing.
