Saw this on twatter and it was most pleasing :lol:


After yesterday’s result, Liverpool’s single biggest achievement remains being the only team in history to get all English clubs banned from Europe.
:lol: :lol:

Well, well, finally, an acknowledgement from a journalist who understands what a momentous achievement it was.

It will never happen again either.

I've always thought it would never happen again but saw interviews with both Pires and Henry from a couple years back and they both reckon it deffo will happen again which I thought was odd. I certainly hope it never happens again but who knows......

We should make this a thing every year. :barscarf: :barscarf:

Weekend going to plan so far. :barscarf:

Now, are they still to be considered the greatest team in Premier League history now they got beat by Watford?

At least we lost our run to a proper team like Manure.
They didn't just lose they got battered by relegation battling Watford.

A lot of athletes sometimes play down their achievements, putting on that cloak of humility, "hoping" their record gets broken etc, etc, so maybe we have to take what they said with a pinch of salt.

It was a momentous achievement, I myself cannot see it happening again. The drive to get up and go again, week in and week out must be immense.

Just ask our current squad, they'll explain the difficulties :lol:

Attention seeking whore or blatant jealousy - cant see any other reason for this bu.llshit article

https://www.skysports.com/football/news ... nuel-petit

One of their back 4 would get into our 2004 team, none of their midfield would make the bench much less the team, and would their strikers get in ahead of Bergkamp or Henry ? Would they fcuk :roll:

First reaction when I saw that story was fuck off Many, you were not part of that piece of history. Allison ahead of Lehmann and Van Dijk ahead of Kolo, maybe would be two that might get into the Invincibles.
Rubbish story filling pages when nothing else to put in them.

Interesting take on 'could our current side beat The Invincibles in a single match' - https://tribuna.com/en/arsenal/news/74f ... b66d2da12/ No chance probably but I would love to see that Lauren/Toure vs Aubamayang battle :mrgreen:

Wouldn't amount to much Auba would hardly see much of the ball , our current midfield would get overrun.

Our midfield would be shrinking violets up against Vieira and Gilberto
