I will go out on a limb and say Gomez is shite. He showed promise in his early days at left back under Rodgers but every appearance since his comeback I think he's nowhere near the level needed. I also have called out Flanagan and Kevin Stewart for not being good enough early on. I hope I am proved wrong,but...

That's not really that big a call though is it? Most of the time, the youth we bring in aren't top quality. Sterling and Coutinho were exceptions.

The scorer of the second wasnt offside but the lump in the middle who attempted to play the ball and missed it, was offside when the ball was played wide and is then deemed offside because he made an attempt to play the ball. That's the offside rule since 2 seasons ago.

I thought the player needer to touch the ball to be deemed offside,or impede the defending team from being able to stop the shot or pass normally?

Noticed we dropped the zonal marking as soon as we came out in the second half.


Pity we didnt do that when we came out for the first half then.

Henderson is not a great captain. Nobody respects him out there. Useless at  dictating when to change strategies. A proper leader out there would have told the players to get stuck in more in the first half and screamed at them to organise set pieces. His best year came as a hard-running attack dog midfielder with more creative players in front of him and behind him. He hasn't got what it takes to be a defensive mid, creative passer and leader.

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”
