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

Recommended Posts

Adrian was fucking awful, bar a decent reaction save. No idea what goes through a keepers mind when they take so long to do something so simple. Wake up.

 

That said, 3 points, city dropped points, happy fucking days.

Adrian played well, made one great point blank save but wtf was he doing? Trying to nutmeg Ings? 

 

Karius / Mignolet levels of shitness and idiocy right there. 

It was almost like he didn't see him... that's basic, very basic.

Thought Salah was poor. Few chances shifted awkwardly onto his left when his right would have done the job. 

That one in the second half was like Everton away last season.

 

Keep hoping to see him create the angle and bend those chances high into the net a la Owen, but he’s hitting the keeper low with them.

I've noticed that short highlights of all the games are now freely available, instead of having to subscribe or sign up to Sky Sports or BT Sport websites. How many people will bother watching MOTD if it's easy to see all the main action within minutes of full time? For one thing, you don't need to sit though some gormless pundit either stating or missing the obvious.

 

I never expected this game to be a walk in the park given our excursions in midweek. In many ways, it was similar to our encounter at St Mary's last season, where it took a late Salah goal and a clincher from Henderson to walk away with the 3 points. The match thread was in meltdown (more so than usual!) until then.

 

Sitters missed by Firmino and particularly Ings. Good saves by both goalkeepers. A howler by Adrian to gift Ings what turned out to be a consolation goal. I'm not sure why goalkeepers think they have more time to clear a ball than they do (Mignolet once let a pass go out of play for a corner at Burnley, just by taking way too long to clear it). In Adrian's case I don't think he assessed the situation early enough, and I think he was still hampered by his ankle injury which meant his kicking was weak.

Great result seeing as we played 2 hours in boiling hot temperatures until Thursday morning. Lucky that mistake didn't cost us. A full week until the next game.

Plus travel.

 

Brilliant result in the circumstances.

Evertonians love match of the day, they get to sit through it all and then watch their team at the end.

How was Oxo Chambo?

I thought he was decent, nothing special, but there's a compilation going around twitter of every touch and having watched that, I have to say he was a lot better than I originally thought. Did a lot of important defending as well as helping us get the ball up the pitch a lot.

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.

Fair play to the team they always seem to find a bit like Newcastle last season when after being kicked in the teeth with Barca away they somehow managed to take the points when even looking out on their feet.

We aren't playing great at the minute but as Bob said the "league is a marathon and not a sprint" and as someone else said "form is temporary but class is permanent"...I'm being predictably cliché today

Agree there , preferably the former.

Not sure what was going on in the home end next to us but they seemed to be fighting each other. Not sure if a Red or two had infiltrated their ranks but it provided some amusement in the second half.

As Dave pointed out in his Norwich match report, it's actually a marathon sprint against that oil lot.

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
