Stig starts the thread.

Liverpool win in style.

Caramac is the git that keeps on giffing.

 

It's like we've never been away.

 

This is already my favourite season.

It was a uniquely terrible game to end.

 

All these wide eyed Liverpool fans having the best day of their lives and just revelling in it with their best mates and parents.

 

Personally, I much prefer to be on here seeing the decision to go 3-5-2 instead of 4-3-3 end with psychoanalysis into a man's marriage and demands to meet other forumites for an immediate brawl at the local fast food establishment.

A pitch invasion just for Divock.

 

It was absolutely disgraceful.

 

I have forwarded the following photos onto Merseyside police and I pray that they identify these hoodlums and throw them in jail.

And while we’re at it, does anyone know who wrote this on the side of Kev’s house?

In fairness Larouci looks ready physically. 

Played really well up to a point, that point being the Tranmere 18 yard box, where time after time after time he cut inside on his right or turned round and played it backwards. No confidence in his left foot whatsoever.

 

2nd half, Lewis was a much better option at left back imo.

Hoever is class

I agree. Played really well, good physicality and pace for a 17 kid, showed plenty of skill and confidence too.

 

Still don't see him as a full back though, centre half through and through. I think both Hoever and Nat Phillips are both excellent young cb options, also really looking forward to seeing what this Van den Berg kid is all about preseason, his YouTube vids look excellent.

 

Future is bright.

Those bounce finishes are becoming more popular.  Ozil is good at them.

Bounce finishes don't count same as pace goals don't you know.

Some toddler started a pitch invasion while the game was still going with about 10 minutes left. Somehow he managed to escape his dad and leg it onto the pitch. Not sure if the cameras caught it.

Cry for help from Jay Spearing.

Best part was the steward letting his dad be the one to run on the pitch to retrieve him.

 

Nice work, if you can get it. Proper Sopranos no-work type stuff, that.

I missed the match, so thanks for the goal gifs mate, some well taken goals amongst them. 

 

Apparently a rainbow made an appearance.

I prefer Larouci however it’s spelt, watched them both a few times to be fair  to him he is a converted winger. Neither will be cover in my opinion, not yet anyway.

Hoe er is ready to cover Trent now, again in my opinion.

I reckon clyne will be here until January to cover both sides before going out on loan again. 

 

Shame as he should really be in more demand considering his ability.

He wasn't that good for Bournemouth in a defensive sense whilst on loan there. Probably put a lot of clubs off, especially as we'd be wanting a decent wedge for him. His contract runs out next summer though, but he's only 28 which isn't past it as far as right backs go.

I agree on that evidence that neither of them are ready to cover Robertson, I would still go for Lewis ahead of Larouci as although the lad is more physically developed I think the reticence to use his left foot and fact he virtually never crossed when the option was abundantly clear makes me think that he would not be a natural fit for our side in that position.

    • Absolutely anonymous in the first. I actually forgot he was on the pitch.    Ok in the second half, nothing spectacular, but moved the ball around. He's obviously going to have a lot of work to get back to his best, because his injury really was a bad one. I don't think some of us, myself included, appreciate how bad his injury was.    Him getting better can only benefit the team, so onwards and upwards. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has hailed the contribution of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Liverpool made it two wins from two to start the new season by defeating Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s stadium.

      The English international spent a large majority of last season on the sidelines recovering from a serious knee ligament injury sustained in the Champions League semi final clash against Roma in April 2018.

      Understandably the comeback had been carefully managed with hurdle cleared viewed as a major success.

      Oxlade-Chamberlain played 45 minutes against Chelsea in the Super Cup where he was part of the front three alongside Mo Salah and Sadio Mane before being replaced Roberto Firmino at half-time.

      The 26 year-old ticked another box by making his second consecutive start against his former side in his more familiar position in midfield.

      Klopp was very impressed with what he saw as the Liverpool Echo reported:

      “Brilliant. It was different, he was outstandingly good.

      “He felt the intensity and knew he was ready for it.

      "The 45 minutes on Wednesday we can now say they helped for sure.

      “We had to make changes and it was important in the centre of the park especially that we were really there, ready for all these long runs and decisive things. 

      “It was good to have these opportunities, and Ox was obviously not bad today.                             

      The man himself told the Official site what it meant to be back and be playing a meaningful role.

      “It was nice to be back out there. In a winning performance is always nice as well.

      “I had an alright game, a decent game but the main thing was I wanted to make sure I focused on the defensive duties and making sure I was putting in the work and had the legs to help the boys. 

      “I’m glad we did that as a team.

      Ox also reflected on his journey back to this stage.

      “On a personal level, it’s nice for me, it has been a while since I started but I’m delighted that I could help contribute to the team because that’s what I’ve missed so much, being able to contribute and help this set of players to achieve things. 

      “It was really nice to be back out there.”

      Much had been made of the short space of time between the game in Istanbul and the clash on the South Coast, but the midfielder was really impressed with the professionalism of the group.

      “The fixtures are there and you’ve got to go and win them. 

      “We didn’t want to come off the pitch with any excuses as to why we didn’t get the right result.

      “We were under the cosh a bit at the end but we played some really good stuff in parts as well.

      “It was absolutely brilliant from the boys; after a big midweek, to come and do that at a tough place [shows] what we’re made of.”

    • This.    Salah likes to roll the ball in to the far corner and I think a few keepers have worked it out. Should have lifted yesterday’s chance or at the very least put his laces through it.
