S**thampton (A) Premier League (17/8/19)

Recommended Posts

Solidity - stop letting opponents runs through us. Energy - a big ask after a midweek slog abroad. Focus - stop being slack in possession. Control - linked to solidity and focus. Creativity - look dangerous as an entire team rather than individuals. Ruthlessness - be precise rather than hopeful when in a good possession. A bit more thinking is required for this game because it's an away game after a tough midweek battle, and Southampton will be looking for a response after their dreadful opening game.


I don't ask for much.

Did you see the teams after the final whistle before the pen? Klopp ran off for a smoke.


Lampard had his whole backroom team massaging Chelsea players talking in their ears, He then got them all in a big hug that Pedro (their best player tonight to be fair)  took and had them all raring to go. 


Salah was lay down having a chill, Adrian was checking his instagram and Klopp came back. Kicked off at the team because someone nicked his lighter. 


We won. 


We will be fine for this.

Winning will hopefully have taken a lot of the tiredness out of our legs. No training. Just a warm down Friday and we go again. 

No more high lines though. Sit in a bit deeper, play that 424 formation. Let the back 6 protect and the front 4 can inflict damage. West ham away in 17 springs to mind where we had the ox Bobby mane and salah running wild like a bunch of Hulkomaniacs

Got stick for some reason , so I’ll try once again , I was wondering if anyone is travelling down with possibly a few spare tickets as it’s looking unlikely up to now I’ll get one , a bevvy too. Also hoping for a lift back obviously throw in petrol money as I’ve got a lift back down here on the Tuesday , a long shot I know but worth a try cheers.

Tenners and pints all over the place here, so 3pts please, their defence was pretty shit last week but to be honest so was ours , can’t see anything other than 3pts though.

Why the fuck is the Super Cup so early now? It used to be played after the last game before the international break. I suppose they want it to be a 'curtain raiser' of sorts, but it’s not helpful when your league has already started. They'll probably change it again soon; a true festival of football, played in the afternoon of the day that the CL proper gets underway.

    • Jurgen Klopp has downplayed any suggestion that Liverpool struggle to defeat their top six rivals away from home.

      In the first two months of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, the Reds had recorded two fine victories away to Chelsea (3-1) and Man City(4-1).

      But in recent times, it has become more of a struggle.

      The Reds have picked up just the one victory from the last away 12 fixtures, which was a 2-1 victory away to Tottenham last September.

      It is a stat which caused some surprise for Klopp, but he says the pleasing thing was that the performances were to the level he liked.

      The Mirror reported Klopp as saying:

      “Performance-wise, that’s why it’s so surprising.

      "There was one at Arsenal where we should have won when Virgil [van Dijk] had two no-brainers that he didn’t score, the header against the post.

      “Against Man City we lost last year but that is not a match you lose usually.

      “The margins at the end were so small with the ball not over the line."  

         Klopp alluded to the fact that some of those fixtures were played when his team was at a significant disadvantage compared to the opposition.

      “We were always the [Premier League] club that was in the Champions League the longest.

      “We lost 1-0 at Chelsea two seasons ago when we came from a Champions League game and they were not involved anymore. That helps.

      “I don’t remember these specific away games but it was pretty rare that it was a performance that deserved to lose an away game.

      The manager said sticking to your own strengths is the most important thing when it comes to these big fixtures.
        “We cannot plan winning against a side like Chelsea, City, Tottenham, United.

      “You have to play how you play to deny their strengths and push through your strengths. Then you have a chance.

      “The last game we won at Tottenham was pretty early in the season. That makes it all different.

      “We played against Arsenal early in the season (the 4-3 win in 2016). It was one of the best games for a while and we did really well in that game. 

      “So let’s just keep going and we will see what happens.

      “It is not an obvious problem.”

    • Goosebumps half way through. Its not all bad up there.         
    • Word.   Everyone at that club, from owner to fans, is deeply unpleasant and deserves to be sent home miserable. 
    • I watched that for the first time in years the other day. Unfortunately it wasn't the Director's cut, so that last line was missing.
