Fat Frank

It's something from his West Ham days. Perhaps a player's physical condition is fair game as far as criticism goes, but it would be difficult to argue the same for a manager.

He was once guest (Lampard) on Sky (I think) with the pundits.

He was telling a story about his time at West Ham and said they once told him "Sit down and be quiet, fat boy!" Or something like that.

Probably that's where it's from. For what it's worth.

Pretty sure somebody else also refered to him by that moniker before.

But fine, if it makes you happy.

Fat Sam has also been used without comment many times.

It’s ok to call him that because nobody likes him.

Is it because of the salary cap now implemented in China? I expect many of the players on fat contracts there to leave too.

Isn't he called Big Sam? 

In any case you included both in your board name.

The club wanted to extend his contract but a report in The Athletic says that Benitez decided to leave because the project didn't turn out to be what he expected when he signed due to the financial consequences of the pandemic as well rule changes that made it more difficult for Dalian to compete for the best Chinese players and the salary cap which took foreign imports off the table.

Aston Villa are really fun to watch. Swag king Bertrand Traore's been great for them since he won a first team spot.

Not especially hopeful of getting anything today. Klopp picks our two most out-of-form forwards, and adds an out-of-position Jones to the mix, rather than picking one of our other actual forwards.

Piss poor from both Firmino and Wijnaldum in the lead up to the United goal. You get the feeling both of them would rather concede possession than take a shot.

Not a good half from us. Firmino and Salah, apart from the great play for the goal, have been shit, and Milner and Jones have offered nothing useful either.
