    Catching up on games. So, watching Liverpool-Brighton on Wed 7/8. Liverpool just sending up extreme high pressure. Brighton leaving all their guys up and trying to beat seven with backline four and a central mid and giving up two goals in under two minutes. SMH.

    You either bring guys back or you kick the ball over the top. They act like the high pressure is an affront to their pride and try to pass through it like a drill with nothing on the line. And I'm watching and thinking damn, Brighton can get 5-3 any time they want it; Liverpool is being that ballsy.

    Finally, they get some air on the passes and break out and the Liverpool centerback is so ballsy that he gambles and gives up a 2-0 break, but the Brighton player's touch got away from him and the keeper cleared the ball. Minutes later, same stuff. Brighton getting a 2-1 on a through ball but they f*ck it up by being a hair offside. Goal doesn't count. Even on defense, Liverpool mids barely getting back and Brighton getting numbers 2-1, 3-2 etc but f'ing up the execution. Could easily be 2-2 or even 3-2 or 4-2 going into halftime. Instead, the 0-2 deficit stands.

    Too much pride by these gimpy teams thinking they have to beat the big six at their own game even though they don't have the athletes to do it but once in a blue moon when the breaks go their way and the mistakes are kept to a minimum.

    Side note: This game could seriously get dirty in the second half. In the first half the ref has given no cards despite one play in which the Liverpool player jumped on a guys back midfield and got bodyslammed (but apparently not before throwing a sharp elbow to the bodyslammer; blood flowing down the side of his face). Maupay ing a Liverpool player attempting a trip. One or two other nefarious plays. And the latest one Liverpool karate chopping a Brighton player's back as a Liverpool player simultaneously clotheslines a Brighton player.

    And a Brighton player has scored to make it 1-2 going into halftime if a cheap last minute goal is not given up here.

    Too be honest, I haven't looked more forward to a second half this much all season. These could be the two most dirty teams in the league who are going into their locker rooms mad as .

    One last thing, I can see why Liverpool is giving up a ton of goals against stronger compe ion (lost 0-5 to MC) after winning the table. Their strategy is arrogant. And if they don't get off on the front foot, they just crack.

    BTW, w/o the crowd cuing the announcer in, the dude(s) calling this game are pretty oblivious to what's transpiring. You wouldn't think much of all this sh** going down by listening to their monotone calls.

    Connoly for Brighton, the same idiot who was needlessly offside on a breakaway in the first half was needlessly offside for a breakaway in the second half. Two goals give up by that putz.

    As for the rest of the second half, a Brighton player missed the target from about four feet away to tie the game up. Then later the Brighton goalie didn't cover the near post on a corner and Salah got the insurance goal. It was his only shot at scoring and the keeper just didn't slide his feet. Nor was the post covered in the first place.

    Ref was consistently shi**y though. Brighton player tugged down to prevent a breakaway in daylight against the keeper and deny a scoring opportunity. No red car even in the 89th minute. Passive refs like this always annoy me.

    I think this game would've been great with a crowd calling for Liverpool blood in the second half. Anti climactic nonetheless.

    I wonder if Bournemouth will give City a guard of honour for their biggest victory of the season.
