Why? Thats been sung for decades

I'm not sure it's been sung much in the last 30 years so it's great that we can. I don't know why, it just sounds so cheesy. But mainly I wanted to use the word 'catalogue' instead of the word 'thread' - credit Skaro.

I need no encouragement whatsoever to drink, but if last night is a precursor to the rest of the season this could be a painful couple of months.

Injuries are fucking us up at the minute. I know clyne isn't some hero and he hasn't featured much over the last couple of years but he was fit again and he fitted in and knew the training methods it just seems a stupid stupid decision.

 

On the face of it the Clyne move was insane. For the benefit of what, 1 or 2 mil you'd assume max, the club have potentially mortgaged the title challenge on Moreno / Milner as the back up full backs at the club. God help us if Robertson & TAA get injured at same time.

 

Really liked Matip when he first joined but it can't be a coincidence that we concede far more chances with him in the team. Leicester could scored a couple yesterday. Need Matip back to 4th choice and Gomez -- daresay even Lovren -- back desperately.

From what I could hear on the radio we could well have lost.

 

1 point gained. Hear alot of stick going round at Keita and the defending but Salah, Mane and Firmino should be able to find the net more than once between them.

 

We move on

Thet probably would if they had a little help creating chances.

That Chilwell's a good player, can see why we were interested in him. I like Maddison too, though thankfully he was poor last night. Fair bit of quality all over the pitch.

 

They're a very decent side, should probably be doing better with the players they have.

Now that the pens look like they're going to dry up maybe in future we might get a few decisions with opposition red cards , Maguire last night and Kompany are two I can think of that should have seen red

In fact has any fucker been sent off against us this season?

He showed up the whole game. Winning 2nd balls. Looking to get on the ball. Love the player. Not his fault those around him don't show the same bravery

He is braver than Henderson (who isn’t)  but he’s only ever going to be a boys and pieces midfielder.  Never immense, his best games will be where he positively inputs to a solid team performance.  He will never impose himself on a game, or dominate it from midfield.  He was ok last night, but they had better midfield performances over the 90 mins.

 

i quite like Wijnaldum, but he is what he is.  A Geoff Strong.

Atkinson was a joke last night. I assume he’d read all the accusations about Mo diving and come to the conclusion he’d not be fooled into giving him or any of his African teammates a wrong pen. So he sticks to that even when his eyes can see a blatant pen. Worst thing is: If it had been Milner instead of Keita, he’d probably give it.

All the diving accusations against Mo are wrong. Only one pen given can be seen as soft (after the papers had stories about how few pens we’ve got). With incompetence like that, VAR can’t come quick enough. VAR would probably benefit us more than anyone.

Walton had replays and said it wasn't a penalty. This is a professional referee saying it isn't a penalty. We've got no chance even when VAR comes in.

Salah needs to get back on the right, he doesn't get involved enough playing central. He is also much better at getting to one on ones from out there. Accomodating Shaq is definetly not the way to go, and Shaq is better coming off the bench than starting anyway.

It's strange that the stats say we've scored more at this point that the same point last season but i agree in that like in games last night where not a lot was happening that we'd be best reverting to the Salah out wide and Bobby as the 9.  Give Leicester credit, they defended well all night but the attacking subs last night not for the first time baffled me as to what they were meant to achieve, I thought Fabinho was very good when he came on but the problem was that 2 of the options in front of him were Lallana and Sturridge and no Bobby.

 

I do think the way forward for the remainder of the season should be Fabinho, Gini & Keita with last years front 3 in last years positions. I genuinely don't see why this wouldn't work. I think that the Fabinho/Gini axis there is the key to unlocking Keita, with the added bonus of Shaqiri as the impact sub.

Everyone squealing about us clearing the snow from our end and not theirs. I didn't understand the logic anyway as we still had to defend down their end lol.

That was before he saw one of the replays, which I think they showed whilst he was speaking. After the game he said it would be given as a pen

Remember the Woolster's wise words.  It's more likely we'll win the league after this round of games.

 

I read that the probability of us winning the league on Tuesday afternoon based on betting odds was about 55%, when i checked last night it had gone up to about 63%.

 

There's a possible discussion about accuracy of betting odds, but it is a decent predictor.

I was the same about a month ago. But that was down to food poisoning, not football.

See the bookies have us as 4/9 favorites to win it with Man City at 13/8. They basically see it as twice as likely we win it rather than MCity, which is probably statistically about right.

Does the Spurs result not influence this?  I mean, they will feel like they're back in it now so does a two horse race becoming three not change things?

    • Now that Hendo has acquired Champions League Winning Captain superpowers, his death stare will make Diego Costa evacuate his Simons.

    • Offal Report   Jake Cain’s superb stoppage-time strike earned Liverpool U23s a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.   A strong young Reds team spent the majority of the Premier League 2 fixture at a blustery St George’s Park on top, and merited the lead given to them by Joe Hardy’s goal shortly before the hour.   However, having levelled through Chem Campbell’s 72nd-minute penalty against the run of play, Wolves threatened to snatch all three points as they applied pressure on the goal of Vitezslav Jaros, who made his first start of the season following an elbow injury.    But Cain, one of a number of Neil Critchley’s regulars making the return to U23s football following their FA Cup heroics, showcased his technical ability by half-volleying in a late, late winner from 20 yards.   Liverpool made a purposeful start and a sharp one-two with Harvey Elliott earned Curtis Jones a sight of goal inside the first two minutes, only for the captain to scuff his shot wide.   A clear-cut chance arrived soon after for the visitors, with a sliding Leighton Clarkson unable to make the required contact on Neco Williams’ inviting low cross at the back post.    Another slick move ended with Tony Gallacher over-running the ball after he’d collected Pedro Chirivella’s clever pass and strode into the penalty area, before Hardy dragged wide from Elliott’s cushioned chested knock-down.   There was no let-up in tempo or intent from the young Reds, who continued pushing for the elusive opening goal.     Indeed, only the woodwork denied Jones what would have been a fine opener eight minutes before the break.   Chirivella arced a brilliant long-range pass into the skipper who, from an acute angle, clipped a delicate effort past Wolves goalkeeper Andreas Sondergaard that kissed the far post and rebounded to safety.   Elliott twice tested Sondergaard from outside the area - first from open play, then via a free-kick - prior to Liverpool finally, and deservedly, going ahead through Hardy.   Jones fed the onrushing Gallacher down the left and the full-back whipped in a cross that Hardy, on the slide, diverted home at the far post.   It was role reversal soon after as Gallacher found Jones’ surge down the left. The captain’s persistence enabled him to wriggle free of Owen Otasowie and Raphael Nya, before he curled a shot towards the top corner that Sondergaard tipped wide.    The pattern of the match indicated that the game’s second goal would be Liverpool’s too, but Wolves equalised out of nothing 18 minutes from time.   Sepp van den Berg was penalised when Renat Dadashov went down once he’d forced the defender to back into his penalty area, and Campbell duly converted the resulting spot kick.    Buoyed, Wolves then chased a winner, with Jaros parrying Terry Taylor’s powerful drive away and Dadashov hitting the post from a tight angle.    Cain would have the final say, though, the Liverpool midfielder chesting down the ball before dispatching a sweetly-struck shot into the corner.   Liverpool U23s: Jaros, Williams, Hoever, Van den Berg, Gallacher, Chirivella (Dixon-Bonner, 83), Clarkson, Cain, Elliott, Jones, Hardy (Millar, 68). Unused substitutes: Winterbottom, Boyes, Bearne.
