Liverpool 3 Huddersfield 0

 

Joe Hardy pounces on a rebound. Proper poachers goal. Liam Millar's effort saved by the visiting keeper, but Joe is on hand to turn home.

4 minutes ago, alles ist gut said:

Probably about the right margin of victory in the end.

Yeah. They had a couple of good chances in the second half that they really should have done better with. 

 

Given the chances we created in the first half, it could quite easily have finished 5-2.

Liverpool 0 City 1

 

Liam Delap opens the scoring. Ran uncontested from his own half before slotting past Jakub. Poor defending on our part.

Liverpool 0 City 2

 

A second for the visitors who look comfortable.

 

City work the ball out to the left to Edozie who turns Bradley inside out before lashing a left footed effort into the roof of the net at the keeper's near post.

Half time 2-0

Citeh have taken advantage of the conditions so far. That said, they haven't looked as good as they did in the Cup here before Xmas, and if we have a plan, and a bit of luck, we can get back into this.

Half time - Liverpool 0 City 2

 

The visitors are comfortable and are good value for their 2-0 lead.

 

The first goal is avoidable, but we let Delap just run through the middle of the park, from around the halfway line without a challenge, despite having numbers around him. Thought Ojrzynski might have shown him too much of the far post as he went to close the striker down, but he was left exposed by the defence coming back.

 

We had the ball in the net through Niall Brookwell, but it was chalked off for hand ball. Niall's initial effort was well saved by the visiting keeper, and the ball then ricocheted up on to Brookwell's hand/arm before he tucked the ball into the net, but was rightly pulled back for handball unfortunately.

 

City's second was a very well taken goal. The had some controlled possession around the half way line and worked the ball out left to the tricky Edozie who drove into the box and done Bradley like a kipper with a couple of stepovers before slamming a left footed effort high into the net. Good goal.

 

Other than our disallowed effort, we've not really looked a threat in the final third. The effort is there, but City are very comfortable at the back.

4-2

City win a free kick thirty yards out, and take it quickly while our midfield are all arguing with the ref. Ojrzynski came out to close down their player, but it winds up in the net.

Full time 4-2.

 

A closer game than the result suggests, but we lost it in the first thirty minutes of the second half by spending all our time  trying to chip the ball over their defence.

Also, cowardly refereeing.

    • “He’s cumbersome and sluggish yet his pace saves him” ...Makes as much sense as a bloke pushing 60 still wearing an earring 
    • Charlie Nicholas has offered a somewhat critical view regarding the form of Virgil Van Dijk this season.

      The Sky Sports pundit believes the Dutchman has not been at the same level as he was last year.

      Football 365 via Sky Sports reported the former Arsenal striker as saying:

      "Has he been as good as last year? No. 

      “He looks cumbersome and sluggish at times, but his pace can rescue him.

      “He has pace and purpose on the ball, while having a great awareness of danger He never jumps in and rarely dives in.

      “If someone is really quick, they may have a chance, or if a player is tricky, they could send him the wrong way, but he stands up and asks them to do something, meaning the player would normally lay it off.   "He has an authority within the game."

      While thinking that Van Dijk has not been up to his elite standards this campaign, Nicholas does not doubt his ability and still believes he should be in the Premier League team of the season.  

      “Is he as good as what people think?   "Yes, he is that good. People are scared to test him. Little balls in behind can make him vulnerable, but who isn’t? 

      “He is a leader and has such a response of being on the ball, whether it be 10 yards or 60.   "He is good in the air both in attack and defence, he has to be in the team of the season.”

    • OK. Let's try the debating thing.   The first point about "sound economic judgement" is demonstrable bullshit.  In 2010 when David Cameron's coke-addled fag (in the public school sense of the word) launched a decade of cuts to jobs, pay, pensions, services and benefits he did so "to deal decisively with our country's record debts". https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2010/jun/22/emergency-budget-full-speech-text   After 9 years of Tory rule, the National Debt had increased by £760 billion. https://www.statista.com/statistics/281761/national-debt-of-the-united-kingdom-uk/   By the Tories' own measure, their handling of the economy has been a calamitous failure.   The second point about "realistic social responsibility" is baffling. What the fuck does it mean? I would argue that, realistically, a wealthy country has a social responsibility to provide decent jobs, decent and sufficient housing, proper pensions, investment in technologies to minimise and mitigate climate change, efficient public services, free access to good quality education and  - of course  - universal, comprehensive healthcare, free at the point of use. Presumably, based on their track record, Tories would have a significantly different interpretation of that phrase.   If @CurtisJones hasn't skulked off to lurk for a couple more years, like some neoliberal cicada, maybe he could clarify what he means by "realistic social responsibility".
