  1. that Crew article is pretty impressive in highlighting the Save The Crew efforts which continue today. what’s more impressive: founding a team with no team or turning back the imposing tide? i’d like to watch a documentary on this.

    That Liverpool goal… that ball was out, right? I mean, it definitely looked out. Let’s go to VAR… oh wait.

    • The replays I saw all seem like the ball is directly above the bar which would indicate directly on the endline by relation. Since the entire ball must be over line to be considered out of bounds I would say it is absolutely a good goal. Crazy flukely.
      Agree on the need of VAR to England tho.
      And for the record I am not a supporter of either team involved.

    • It was real close, but I think Pickford kept it in. And then it bounces on the bar and into play, so it was in. To be honest, what Pickford was thinking in that moment is beyond me. It’s like he imagined he was trying to keep a jump shot out of the basket. You tip that ball out of play every time, right?

      Glad I’m not a Toffee.

    • The ball was going to land on the back part of the bar and careen out of bounds, from what I saw. When Pickford reaches for it, he keeps it from going out, it bounces on the bar again, then to Origi for the goal. Amazing. I had DVR’d the match and saw the winning goal last night about 11:30 p.m. Just amazing.
