Recommended Posts

Build up play and attack has been pedestrian for ages now. Opposition defences just saunter back into positions, check everyone is where they should be then wait for us to lose the ball and then run at us in numbers. Damn thing is all the sides are doing it now. Need to get at them quickly and catch the cunts out.

He said we’ve been found out and he’s praying that we can stumble over the line. It’s hard to disagree with him. 

Damn that's literally the opposite of what I was hoping!

The wins have masked a lot of our shite performances this season. This has been coming for a while and for some reason klopp seems to have noticed it but it’s continued every game. Hopefully the monkeys off our back now and we can start putting teams away by half time now. 

Correct. Better to lose 3-0 one time than 1-0 3 times

Klopps response spot on Watford good, we poor , deserved win for Watford, we contributed to scoreline.

 

Get the feeling he was like someone who knew exactly he had taken a risk and it didn't come off for the first time this year. Don't know all the injury details but he was not prepared to risk Gomez,hendo,milner even naby for what he has planned later in the season. So if o am right o think we looking kids against Chelsea and if we get the 4 wins for PL he will play the kids in rest of the fixtures. Going unbeaten , record points total not on his radar . Quite simply PL and CL. He took a logical punt with the line up didn't come off. I think it is as simple as that.

Five Premier League defeats since van Dijk joined. One match partnered with Matip (Swansea) the other four partnered with Lovren (Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Watford)

At least the spectre of losing our undefeated season is removed. I’m sure we’ll bounce back. This team always does

It was coming. Glad to get it out the way. Time to sharpen up and make this our best ever season - 3 trophies to go.

 

I am glad we are so for ahead as the bottom teams are fighting for their lives now.

 

I think the press were more worried about going unbeaten than us - who gives a shit?

Don't care about the unbeaten record, do care very much about winning the league and putting everything into the other two competiitons we're still in. When you look at it as a whole it's no big deal and full credit to Watford who I thought played brilliantly and effectively for the whole 90 miniutes. They wanted that result and got it. We were poor for who knows what reasons and noone comes out of that with any credit. I'm hoping it isn't tiredness, I can't see why it would be. Maybe it was a case of the players subconsciously not wanting to lose games (becasue of the unbeaten run) rather than go out and win them.

Mental tiredness rather than physical tiredness maybe. It must be stressful having to win every outing home and away whether you're playing well or not and that's what they've been doing for 18 months. None of this 'a point away is a decent result'.  City cracked a few months ago and have picked up again now and we need to do the same.

It would have been more damaging if we’d drawn last night and drawn against West Ham. Unbeaten runs in perspective.

Agreed.

 

The whole unbeaten thing is stupid anyway! If we'd drawn all 28 games this season, we'd still be 'invincible' yet also in a relegation battle!

The city cracking is a good point. Was obvious we went for it from the off this season chasing wins rather than draws etc etc City had some sort of hope that we would f up December that didn’t happen Klopp managed the team and we came through unscathed . We may be suffering a dip due to us keeping foot down right up to the break. Will take a couple of weeks to see us back to top form but if Anfieldmcan get us past AM I expect us to be one of the freshest teams come the end of the CL .

Yep.  I'd say this has largely been the case for months - two reasons; one is that teams are learning how to play against us, but a more concerning reason is that we do not have the necessary penetration from midfield when opposition teams set up to nullify our attacking three (and it appears that in any given game this year, at least two of those three will be out of sorts). 

 

Keita is still our best hope for the short term future in this regard, but he's injured too often.  My man Adam is off at the end of the season, but he at least brought a little drive to proceedings yesterday.  And given that we are struggling in our attacking play, we are really in danger when our defence confects a mix of complacency and incompetence as seen yesterday.  

 

Still, a timely reminder to the team that they can't phone in performances, and a timely reminder to Klopp that he needs to expand our capability in defence and midfield in the summer.
