Bournemouth 0 Liverpool 4 (Dec 17 2017)

Recommended Posts

After the ‘Fab Four’ flopped in midweek against West Brom, Jurgen Klopp made changes and a new star quartet emerged against Bournemouth, as goals from Coutinho, Firmino, Salah and, erm, Lovren, gave the Reds an impressive win on the south coast. 
 
Sadio Mané was given the Pete Best treatment as Ringo Lovren took his opportunity to shine. Ok, ok, I’ll stop now, but it was nice for the much maligned defender to get some positive headlines for a change. Even apart from the goal he had a good game, as did Klavan alongside him.
 
The forwards were back to their dazzling best too after fluffing their lines in midweek. It was such a good all around performance and the scoreline didn’t really reflect just how good we were. Bournemouth played right into our hands though by sticking to their principles and playing their natural game. Fair play to Eddie Howe for doing that but it probably wasn’t the best idea he’s ever had. 
 
When we’re at it, I’d back us to beat any team that wants to try and outplay us. The only chance you have against us is to pack the defence, shithouse it right up and hope we don’t take more than one or two of the chances that we will inevitably create. 
 
It worked for Everton and West Brom, but Bournemouth tried to go toe to toe with us and the outcome was somewhat inevitable. The 4-3 win they had last season probably worked against them in more ways than one. Firstly it made them think they could get at us if they went for it, and secondly it removed any chance of our lads getting complacent. 
 
It looked to me like we were more switched on at 3-0 than we were when the score was close. There was no way they were going to allow another embarrassing capitulation to happen and this was one of our best performances of the season. 
 
You could tell from the opening minute how the game was going to go. Bournemouth insisted on trying to play their way out from the back rather than knock it long, and we were all over them like sharks on a maxi pad.

Typical of Sky to bang on and on...and on... about Firmino being marginally offside - even got mentioned on Sky News this morning! Didn't bother mentioning that it was effectively a meaningless 4th goal in a rout. Or mention the dickhead linesman who flagged two of our forwards for offside WHEN THEY WERE IN THEIR OWN HALF ffs  (and had a clear run on goal).

I wish we played them every week. It's pretty fucking stupid to go toe to toe with Liverpool with a squad of their limited ability.

 

Eddie Howe is just another Ian Holloway, Brendan Rodgers, Owen Coyle etc.

I noticed the guardian match reporter is still pushing this almost closer to the relegation teams than the top of the Premier League nonsense. This just proves how agenda driven some journalist are and why every goal we conceed is Liverpools weakness appearing again. It was disappointing to drop points against Everton and West Brom but these things happen. The good news is we rattled in 4 away again.

Great report, as ever. You can't put the Gini back in the bottle but you can definitely take the bottle out of the Gini, he looks completely lost in that defensive midfield role. He's never been a great passer of the ball but when he's playing further back he's afraid to use his strength and pace to burst forward so he just ends up laying it off or turning backwards. I like having him in the team because unlike Lucas, Joe Allen and Milner nobody carries the ball past him but Klopp really needs to work on his confidence. Oxlade Chamberlain on the other hand is beginning to look good playing deeper.

sorry but lallana just doesnt suit that bonce. He looks like fucking Squidward...

It's still a million times better than Firmino's, although to be fair he wouldn't have got that flick header a week ago.

Good report that,some fantastic football by us,the one two between Phil and Mo where his shot almost went through the goalies legs was fuck’n brilliant football.

Yes,it seems we have two magicians in our team now (and I’m not talking about Mo)
