    Any fair minded person would see the BBC's bias here. First page big picture on the day the Premier League fixtures are announced is obviously going to be the reigning Premier League champions not the team in second place. Perverse to think anything else.

    Annoying isnt it... I think we just got to accept it though, it isnt going to change, it's mainly clickbait bringing in customers from the biggest fanbases..... It will never ever change, look at how much chelsea get, they're now supposed to be a big club but they still get less coverage than the media fav big two.

    I think of it as giant slaying... All these "financially established" clubs with all their media doping, all their pundits on TV, all their political help from UEFA, and we are still beating all of that. Our owners have to be applauded for what they're trying to do, it's near impossible to break this cartel of clubs and media.

    I disagree strongly. Even when you played jumpers for goalposts, it hits your arm it's no goal, one of the most basic unwritten rules of the game all fans of the sport used to agree on.

    It's also weird how an "unintentional offside" can be a matter of centimetres and we mostly accept it(I did for Aguero's), either your onside or your off, the cameras clear it up. You take it on the chin, even if there was no intent to gain an advantage and none was gained(as in Agueros case).... But then some want to say a goal that wouldn't have happened without a vital deflection off the elbow is ok because "he didn't mean it" and his arm wasn't in an "unnatural position"? Both terms obviously meant to describe a defender stopping a shot at goal to begin with. I will never accept that decision wasn't a mistake.

    It really is strange to have the main picture on your Homepage showing someone with the Champions League trophy when the lead story is the new Premier League fixtures. It is just plain stupid but the BBC's football coverage is so bad these days I am not surprised.

    True, I just can't see how any blue was ok with that in such a big game, with VAR in place.

    For what it's worth it should never have come down to one goal(even though it did mathematically), we were so much better than them on the night but gifedt them two one on one one opportunities from mistakes at the back, which Son took full advantage of. Also the penalty miss and 3 players switching off on the off chance the ball was going out of play in the first leg didn't help.

    What makes the BBC's reporting of the opening day fixtures point more towards bias than incompetence is they don't even have coverage of the champions league. They do however cover the premier league and fa cups but I guess because we won them both it makes it a bit awkward for them

    The BBC don't have advertising so they don't really need to clickbait.

    Using Liverpools champions league picture for the premier league fixtures story is done on purpose to just troll the club.

    BBC reporting the last time Liverpool played Norwich on the opening day they won the league ahead of city, and claiming fate ffs why the fuck do we have to pay a license fee for this shit, it was 42 fucking years ago totally irrelevant.
