Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle United – Premier League – 13th December 2015

A 95th minute equaliser from Divock Origi secured a share of the points for Liverpool against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, after a dramatic clash at Anfield.

The hosts started well, with captain Jordan Henderson impressing back in the starting line-up. And it was the England man who would open the scoring on 21 minutes, finishing off a superb team move. However, just nine minutes later, the Baggies were on level terms, when Craig Dawson netted after Simon Mignolet had flapped at a corner. The first-half would end in controversy, with Tony Pulis and his team left fuming after a Jonas Olsson goal was very belatedly flagged for offside.

In the second period, Olsson eventually got on the scoresheet for real, with the defender glancing home from a Chris Brunt corner on 71 minutes. That goal looked to set to send Jurgen Klopp’s charges to a disappointing home defeat. But then, well into injury time, Origi struck, with his shot deflected off Dawson and into the back of the West Brom net, leaving Klopp and co. to celebrate like they’d just beaten Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final.

The draw sees Liverpool go ninth, a point ahead of Merseyside rivals Everton while West Brom are 13th, four points behind the Reds.

    Think the amusing celebration at gaining a home point was an effort by Klopp to not to get his players booed off as it has finally dawned on him the enormity of the task he has taken on with the shite he has inherited.

    I like to think that the embarrassing display at the end is more of a backhanded compliment to West Brom. But WTF is this delay in producing a late offside flag? Are the officials surreptitiously (and probably selectively) using video replays to “drive” the outcome? Are the officials using encrypted wifi to communicate? If so, why is it encrypted? Why isn’t it transparent like in rugby? Hack away boys & girls, let’s see what shady shit we can uncover.

    But then this is how the status quo is kept! They pen you in like cattle, extort you for the “privilege”, then fix the result. So other than parting with cash that I’m sure your long-suffering family could use, other than being complicit in this charade, what do *you* actually get? You get to see things stay the same, with just a few controlled surprises to keep your fascination. Fascination! Fascist Nation!

    Yes, the mesmerised hordes latch on to each & every Klopp/Mourinho/Whoever soundbite, trotted out in glorious hi-def bland-o-vision, where you can hang on every monosyllable, drool into your “real ale” over the media patsies playing pretend pantomime villain to the well-paid “stars” of the stage.

    Got it yet? Do you see where the *real* game is being played?
