Lucky bastards have a few easy fixtures coming up. Though the Bournemouth game could be a real 6 pointer in the battle for Europa places. No Europa to save his season this year either

Just now, Dr Nowt said:

You don’t go into the Europa League if you drop out of Champions League in the last 16 do you? 

 

Mind suddenly gone blank on that.

Nah.

Fucking hell, Fabinho absolutely ran the show there. Andy Robertson, what a player.

Honourable mentions for Gini and Sadio

Honourable mention for Clyne today. He played 90 minutes and was steady enough.

Yeah he was fucking brilliant. Defended Well and got outside mane a lot especially in the first hour. They used to play with each other a lot manes debut season so it was good to see.

At the end it looked like Edwards wasn’t so much going to sack him as take out a contract on him. He was just staring down at the bench. Brilliant.

Huh?  He's solid mate, I'm just glad he's finally started looking for a bit more contact.  Shied away from it for the first couple of months of the season.  If he's playing up top he has to mix it with the centre backs.

He’s playing it a bit like a target man as opposed to like an Owen or Fowler who constantly tried to find space in the box to score. I just think he’s better running into space than trying to hold a grock off to play someone else in.

Clyne has always been a good player. 

Only lacks going forward. 

 

Didn't see the first 15 of the second half but why are people moaning about Nabby. He was fucking brilliant at times in the first half.

Still, at least there are sandwiches and coffee waiting back at the Blue House for their suffering fans.

The players United have got a decent manager could definitely get a tune out of them.

Oh course a manager could

Give that team to Klopp and he would open them right up.

Great performance and completely outclassed them.  Gina and Fab were tremendous and I thought Keita  was good first half.  Firmino back on form at last. Shaqiri is a class act. 

 

Getting Clyne fit at just the right time is a big plus.

    • As bad as that is, I had a quick check as some of the dross they have isn't there. Turns our Brandalf joined in summer 2018- these were the signings made the two seasons prior to that-   2016/17-     2017-18     So I suppose Brands is an improvement, but it's all relative, they've gone from signing almost exclusively shite to almost exclusively bang average, while selling off their decent players to fund it. For us, it'd be as though 2014/15 (Suarez for several mediocrities) carried on for half a decade.
    • Edwards is clearly just trolling us all at this point.
    • Harvey Elliott has reflected on his early journey as a Liverpool player as he signed his first professional contract on Monday.

      The 17 year-old has signed a three-year deal which is the maximum length for a player of that age.

      The Fulham youth product came to the Reds last summer with big wraps attached having being the youngest player to make a Premier League appearance at just 16 years and 30 days.

      A lot of clubs were interested in him but the combination of being a lifelong Red and the prospect of being managed by one of the best developers of young talent meant that Liverpool were the right club for him.

      The progress of Elliott has been steady making eight appearances which is compiled of six starts in the Carabao and FA Cups and two late substitute appearances in the league.

      Speaking after signing on the dotted line, Elliott displayed his clear delight as the Echo reported.

      “I think since the first day I've walked in, it's been an indescribable journey so far.

      “I think now to top it off with my first professional contract is a dream come true for me and my family. 

      “I'm excited to see what the future holds and I'm just excited to give everything to the club and the fans.

      “I think when I stepped out on the Anfield pitch when I played Arsenal (for his home debut), I think it was an emotional thing for me. 

      To obviously be watching the players and to be playing them with them, honestly it's a dream come true.

      “To be in and around the fans as well, to hear them singing You'll Never Walk Alone when you're stepping out on the pitch, it did bring a tear to my eye. I just can't wait to give everything back to them and just to show them what I can do."  

      Jurgen Klopp was understandably thrilled with the news and paid great credit to the character of the young winger.

      "I think the public maybe doesn’t know the real Harvey yet and part of that is because we have looked to shield and protect him.

      “But he is such a nice, polite, humble boy – who is appreciative of the talent and opportunity he has – and just loves football. 

      “He loves the game first and foremost, would play every minute of every day if he could – and he loves this club also and that’s a nice mixture."

      But Klopp issued a word of caution regarding the next step for Harvey.

      “What is critical – so important – is that he is given time and space to develop. He will get that from us. 

      “He needs to be allowed to make mistakes while he learns and not feel more pressure than is right and fair.

      “He is young and he is in the early stages of his development still.

      “What is great is that he has the perfect culture here and we will protect him. The senior players and the coaches really care about him and are as excited as I am about his future.

      “We now have shared responsibility. He must remain committed to learning and improvement and we must ensure he has the opportunity to do that.”
