He is drinking Whisky with Sam Allardyce and waiting to lead FC’s Reindeer.

Thought Allardyce drank gravy?

Real captain's performance last night. Brilliant in every way. 

 

I think we've won all 13 games that we've been able to play that Fabinho/Hendo/Thiago combination in the middle.

Have to admit, I thought he was emblematic of our frail mentality under Rodgers and in the early Klopp years. Very happy to be wrong on that.

He was, but I'm guessing that stemmed from a leader who was also weak mentally, Klopp has given the players  the belief and a system that they can go toe to toe with anyone in the world, its been going on like that for a few years now that the players know no different now, they play with a swagger and confidence and they all know their jobs.

 

Its amazing what a great manager who is tactically astue can do for the players.

What a performance. I admit to being a doubter over the years, but last night he was imperious. 

Completely agree. Easily the best match I've ever seen the lad play. Thought he was MotM.

Fuck, he must have enjoyed that goal. 

 

This is undoubtedly the A1 midfield too- an excellent blend of creativity, intelligence and defensive nous.

It's no coincidence that we are managed by a decent human being and the team is also led by a thoroughly decent human being. All that stuff about having to be a cunt to be successful is a load of shite.

Someone once said he ran funny didn't they?  Whatever happened to them??

The great irony is that they could definitely do with a Jordan Henderson right now, both on and off the pitch.

If his name was Jordanihno Hendersoninho, we'd all be saying "that's a weird name".

His middle name would still be Brian.

Not only that. We'd also be wondering why he runs so funny.

 

Great performance from him. Hard as nails, a great leader, and with far better technique than his shooting used to suggest. Nice to see him given a more progressive sort of role, and nice to see the bluenoses give him so much space to run onto that ball!

I think that's just the way things are now, in many industries.

 

Dave mentioned something similar on the Southampton podcast.

I don't know if he is nursing an injury, but there have been more than a few performances, this season, where Stringvest doesn't sound as crazy as he usually does.

I don't think he has fully recovered from last season and he's been rushed back because of our other options,and most are poorer players than an injured Jordan Henderson.

Has happened before, so could be. I’ve never been his biggest fan, but he’s been pretty decent for a few seasons before this. So far this season he’s been really poor. Would be good news actually if there was something like that causing it.

    • It's payback for the public apology he had to do for it. 
    • Problem I have with our pursuit of the cheating bastards is this:   They are squeezing the life out of the game - literally suffocating it to death.   I can handle us not winning league and chasing a better team, but there has to be a glimmer of hope you can actually catch them, that other teams might beat them, that winning is hard for them too.....some sort of jeopardy.   There is literally none with them and it is soul destroying....even the mancs under demento would often lose 6 or 7 games a season and win titles with 'normal' pts totals in the low to mid 80's, even the odd one or two in the 70's.   We knew it was pretty much fucked when 97 pts was not enough to beat them - ok we went again and won it the next year with an even higher total - but it was always going to be extremely difficult/nigh on impossible to maintain that level season after season.   As the OP says "So we have literally gone toe-to-toe with this multi-billion petrodollar outfit who have cheated to get where they are (this isn’t an allegation, it’s been proven to be so in the courts)" and arguably our best ever team or certainly one of them (and we have had some great teams) and its not enough.....They can spend 100m on a player like Grealish, he be dead average and its no bother....   Rest of league so often just curls up in a ball against them and begs not to be hit too hard - teams often fail to register a shot on target v them (even a side as good as chelsea) or win a corner.   They are strangling the life out of the game....pretty much no competition.   The feeling that pretty much every droppes point is likely to kill you just becomes so draining - recent draws away at Chelsea and Tottenham (whilst being weakened by covid) are not bad results at all 'normally' but frankly they have pretty much ended our hopes (along with the leicester shit show, but that is it isn't - can't really afford any bad days up against these now)   They'll probably win next 5 leagues at a canter and every time a challenger comes along ala us from about 2018-2020, they just swat them away with their chequebook...
    • He's not thick, but I think he overestimated the impact his revelations would have.  And he's partly to blame for that.  But fundamentally I think he's on the right track, and yes he was a gun for hire and that's a shitty thing to do but I think he's a big part of the *big shrug* reaction to his insights.  
    • Maupay is pissing me off as much as Welbeck was.
