The question should be where the fuck is Trent to expose the keeper like that?

I just meant that little kick at the end. Looks like he's doing the Charelston.

I think he's just going 'ah fuck!' then sees Fabinho come to the rescue.

Adrian is very much a person that lives in the moment. That's why he's completely reckless, impulsive but probably a fun guy to be around (Just not in a professional football match).

I'm not in the slightest surprised at his performance at cb, he's going to cover for virg very well. He's an absolute fantastic player, love him, top quality player.

The only 2 clean sheets we've kept this season have been with Fabinho at centre back. Coincidence? I think not. 

I’m not surprised that he’s been so good - he was great against Bayern away when Van Dijk was suspended (snuffed out Lewandowski en route to another clean sheet!). Now, I’m not suggesting he’s a better defender than VVD because I don’t think anyone currently playing the game is, but there have been signs that he is potentially a world class centre back in his own right.

 

This isn’t a fish out of water situation, because he only moved to midfield in 2015. Admittedly he was primarily a right-back before then, but I think he’s obviously just a brilliant defensive player across several positions.

He's a great defender, full stop. Midfield, centre back, whatever. The only issue at CB is it's a horses for courses thing. I have zero concern for him against teams who want to play football, who have a lot of skill because his reading of the game is superb.

 

The test will be, does he have the physicality to stand up against the shit grocks in the league and the set piece merchants. First test against Sheffield United Saturday. If he passes that easily, I mean, there's really nothing to worry about.

Amended.

 

Simon Hughes wrote an interesting article on him today and compared to Sammer in the way he can play either roll equally well. 
 

Apparently he’s going to be asked to do more interviews, step up as a leader like Hendo, Milner, Gini, Virg & Robbo all do.

What's Adrian doing?

He’s in the moment, willing Fabinho on. Like those times your sat watching Rocky and throwing air punches at the same time he’s fighting Drago.

I suppose if he can't stop the shots himself that's something, at least.

It hardly seems fair to the other teams that he's our 4th choice centre back and also the 4th best centre back in the league. 

I'd say he is the 2nd best CB in the league

    • Jesus, shifting blame?   It was something that annoyed me during the game, as a midfielder you would think Hendo would be able to perform this exact part of a CB’s game a bit better, Matip would do it and Van Dijk would do it. Gomez not so much, he lack the skill to do it. 
        Go back to Liverpool-Chelsea game in 13/14, everyone blame Gertard for slipping, I did not. I pointed at Sakho, simply because he should have brought the ball with him 3-4 m forward into open space and by that bypassed  Chelsea’s first line.   Again, at the time I said Agger would do that, now I say that both Van Dijk and Matip would do that instead of playing it back to Alisson as much as Hendo did. By doing that we outnumber the opposition, by doing what Hendo did, we give them time to organize and get everyone behind the ball.   Like I said, Hendo did his job defensively, but there are a lot more to football than what you actually watch happening in front of you.   Maybe I put too much expectations on him because he’s a midfielder, but this is certainly the standard we need.
         
    • Pretty much nonsense. I agree that a lot of footballers have nipped off to Dubai in the last few months(VVD is ther currently,or has been recently hasn't he?) But he is a long term injury so is training alone. Leaving your country for anything other than a competitive match,and I am dead set against even that personally,is just pure stupidity. It has nothing to do with politics and even a moron should know this.  Sounds like a desparate man trying to deflect attention from the shitty job he is doing.
    • This. Not like Code to be contrary and shift the blame from our woeful forwards to a man who has shown leadership by filling in a vital position for the good of the team at his own expense! If you want to blame Hendo then it's Klopp who must take that bullet.
    • The weird thing with Firmino is at his best he was unlauded (17/18), then he was hyped up more & more as he began to wane which reached a peak late last season and has just continued now. Its always been very after-the-fact on Firmino. This makes interesting reading: https://www.liverpoolway.co.uk/index.php?/forums/topic/114625-who-is-the-most-important-of-our-front-three/&   There have been false starts where he's looked like getting back into form (Palace recently; late Dec / early Jan last season when back from Qatar) but overall he's been relatively poor for going on 2 years. I use the word relatively; he's still a good individual player, but has never been in Mane/Salah's stratosphere. He's been a very important component of the team but not one to carry it on his back. When we're at a low ebb, like now, its more evident because he relies on the system to be at his best. Statistically there's not too much different between now and the last 3 seasons. We've just lost a lot of luster in other areas of the field at the moment.  
    • Oh and forgot to add Messi and Sergio Ramos are both coming on bosman deals too   Might let Milner go to balance the books
