Burnley (H) Premier League - 21/1/21 - 20:00

Recommended Posts

The Watford game was the start of the levelling off.

 

It's gradually dropped off since. Shambolic performances against City and Arsenal away last season. I don't give a fuck if we've won the title, we don't lie down to anyone. That said, I would have rather seen the kids play for the rest of last season as I didn't give a fuck about the 100 points thing.

 

We looked awful in pre-season too.

 

We were were always scoring goals, but conceeding too.

 

Villa and Fulham games were as bad as the Stoke game under Rodgers.

 

The West Brom game was disasterous as teams figured out the put 2 banks of 4 and we haven't got a clue.

 

Klopp hasn't helped himself either with awful team selections and subs.

 

Heads now completely gone.

I thought that a handball by the way. utd would have got that.

Was a handball at the start of the season when they were being given for hitting a hand anytime.

but his arms were by his side no way is that a handball for me. The fact we need to scrape a pen against a shite Burnley side sums up how badly we’ve fallen in the last 2 months.

Some of you aren't drunk enough. I'm thinking bout what's on Netflix and tucking into cold pizza. 

Not

yet though, still 3/4 of a can left and wondering what clever shit I can say. 

 

It's 9am over here mate. I woke up at 6:30 and have had my entire day fucked by this shower. Work should be fun.

In terms of talking about Klopp's performance it is allowed. Its a basic reality of the job he is in. 

 

I remember Klopp talking about a conversation he had when Alisson first came to the club. He told Alisson that the goalkeeper position is a cruel position: you can be a hero but one mistake and suddenly everyone blames you and puts pressure on you and that Alisson would just have to accept that.  

 

Klopp knows the ruthless accountability of the profession he is in better than anyone so he doesn't need to be shielded from  receiving any criticism whatsoever. 

 

The reality is that Klopp and the coaching staff are great at coaching our players to retain the ball and control the game but they need to coach them to do more with it, especially against an organised defence that is in position. 

 

That observation isn't really criticism and I'm sure they are perfectly aware of it. They seem to be experimenting and trying a few things and changed personnel for this game but it hasn't worked yet.

Allison is brilliant and if it wasn’t for him we’d have lost against the mancs. Don’t know why he was going mad at the ref for the pen it was stonewall.

Honestly we never seemed to be able to score. How come we have become so badly poor so fast ?

It's weird, I can understand one losing his form, it happens, but it's like a collective loss of form. 

What happened to when some of our midfielders would weigh in with double figure goals for the season? 

It's a weird season full stop, one that won't be remembered apart from the Covid shit, VAR and no crowds. 

Fuck knows who'll get the title, probably Man City but quite a few have a chance in this strange season, sadly it won't be us, it's as if the team has been nobbled like a thoroughbred horse turned into a ragmans cart horse, it's just fucking odd.

Gonna just have to grin and bear it for the rest of the season. It's gonna stink but this group deserve a little leeway after the effort they've put in for nearly 4 years. 

 

Can I recommend just calling everyone a cunt instead?

Really feel for the boys tonight, they tried hard all night but nothing came off for them. Even if we'd been given 3 pens tonight, you get the feeling we wouldnt have scored 1.

 

Divock should have scored, no doubt about it but even when Mo and Bobby came on, what difference did it make? The link up between them and Sadio was non existent.

 

This team really looks like it's run its course to me. Gini's faffing about over money supposedly. Mo, Sadio and Bobby dont look anything like a striking partnership, if you can have 3 in a partnership. They dont look on the same wave length any more irrespective whether you think they dont get on. Their movement doesnt look anything like you'd expect forwards to be.

 

Sadio just lofts aimless balls into the box, when was the last time he beat anyone dribbling into the box? Bobby's nowhere and Mo goes down a blind alley. I hate being critical of them after all they have achieved for us but they look done. They look like 3 individuals in a team. Maybe they each think if they score it will get the others scoring but that looks a forlorn hope to me right now. All 3 of them look as if they couldnt hit a cow's arse with a banjo even if the cow's arse was 6 inches in front of them.

 

People will be critical of Div tonight with some justification after the home run has gone but, we just weren't scoring. The only thing about long runs is they come to an end. All the fawning by sky over Burnley can fuck off as well. It's not like they played magnificently or created loads of chances. It was a pen that was the difference and I look forward to Mo being given pens when he catches the keeper's leg like that but we all know neither he or any of our players are getting that.

 

Alli doesnt make contact with Barnes, Barnes catches him. Maybe a pen according to the letter of the law but will we get that? There was fucking uproar when Mo was given a pen after the West Ham player kicked his foot so Im not holding my breath.

 

Jurgen needs goals and quickly. Trouble is you cannot see where they are going to come from with the front 3 and Div firing more blanks than a munitions starved Army infantryman. It's just lob an aimless ball into the box or, Trent just slam his cross into the first man. Why the fuck is he taking free kicks when most of them are finding the first defender or row Z? Talking of his crosses, how many has he just lofted into the keeper's arms this season?

 

We had chances in front of goal even after Div's miss and still couldnt find the net. I dont know about signing a centre back, I think we need a forward or two.

What a meltdown of a season, good lord. There goes the centre back excuse too. Losing to Burnley, at home, with Fabinho and Matip at the back.

 

It's easy to forget we were once very good, but this genuinely looks like a 6th place team right now, at best.

Not replacing our centre-halves is costing us twice. Its' costing us in midfield and in defence. 

 

 

The mad thing is they said that Klopp would have played Hendo at CB if he was fit.

 

I'm even starting to doubt his logic.

Klopp got lazy with the some aspects of the squad.

 

As I always keep saying, get inventive if FSG cunts aren't giving you the money.

 

Even Brewster and Elliott are better options than Origi, Ox and Minamino.

 Mmmmm

    • Absolute nonsense negativity from the fella Clive.
    • The Drowning Man as soon as he logs on          
    • Yeah, I reckon we'll sell the best centre back in the world, at a cut price, to Manchester City.
    • I think he could have a future with us if we had more reliable choices ahead of him in the pecking order.   He'd be sound to play against the half dozen really fucking alehouse sides in the league if need be, and no disaster against the next three or four either. He seems like solid back up. He knows his own limitations and plays accordingly.     
    • Jim Rosenthal: When Ian St John laughed, everybody laughed     Ian St John, the legendary Liverpool, Motherwell and Scotland forward, has died at the age of 82. Jim Rosenthal, who worked with St John during his successful second career as a TV broadcaster on the iconic Saint and Greavsie show, explains why he was adored on and off the pitch.    ________________________________________________________________
        Ian St John was a passionate lover of the game and a passionate human being. Every opinion that he had was a very strong opinion, but if you had a different one, he always respected someone else’s view. He had an amazing twinkle and he had a fiercely competitive heart, but a warm heart. His laugh was one of those laughs that rippled around the room — when he laughed, everybody laughed. It was infectious.   As a footballer, he was synonymous with the revival, and the rise to the top, of Liverpool. I always remember what a competitor he was — fearless — with a terrific amount of ability. He was part of that Scotland team that beat the world champions England back in 1967, along with the other Scottish greats of that time like Denis Law and Jim Baxter. He was right up there. He was a player of the highest calibre who had a habit of producing when it really mattered on very big occasions.     In the aftermath of his playing career it was a time when the main choices were to try to stay in football or to do something more mundane like run a pub. He was at Portsmouth when they were having a dreadful time, and he managed a bit at Motherwell. Great players don’t always make great managers. In fact, more often than not, they don’t. So he was a bit of a trailblazer in that he went into a media career. Now of course every footballer that stops playing wants to go into the media. Where it was a trickle and a very narrow alley before, it’s now a motorway of ex-footballers that are desperate to get into the media.   But the path for Ian St John turned out to be a magical and very important one. The way Saint and Greavsie came about was John Bromley, the iconic head of ITV sport, had the idea to put these two separate entities together in the studio for the Saturday lunchtime show so it really was an inspired piece of team selection by him that paid off for a good 10 years.   TV partnerships are very interesting in that you can’t create them. They either work or they don’t and this one, from the word go, clicked. You had the Scot and the Englishman, which was a good starting point for any debate. On screen every Saturday lunchtime for a large number of years, everybody could feel the chemistry there and feel how right it was.   The way they approached football punditry on television was pioneering. I’m BBC trained with a lot of the values of the BBC, but it was very straight. What Saint and Greavsie brought to football in bucketloads was humour. And not unkind humour either. It was very gently delivered humour surrounded actually by some quite good journalistic material. So it wasn’t all knockabout stuff. Saint and Greavsie of course had that respect from people on the back of their footballing careers. That ticked the broadcasters’ box but the charisma on top made it special.   It completely changed the landscape, to be funny in that environment. As a father of a comedian, I know that being funny is one of the hardest things in the world to do successfully.   It gave you football with a smile, which had been lacking, really. If I’m honest with you it’s lacking a bit today as well. It showed that football is an entertainment as well as a sport. Of course, it has a very big serious side. But everybody loves to laugh, and the two of them could laugh at themselves as well, which was another huge ingredient of the show.   I was the butt of every report I did. I knew I would probably get a whack when it went out on air. But it was delivered with charm, with no malice. And I think that sums up Saint and Jimmy and the show as well.     Today there is a lot more bile and bitterness and plain nastiness around the game, really. Not to say in those days it wasn’t a brutal environment, of course it was, but these days everyone just seems to be so much angrier about everyone — about other teams and players. It seemed a gentler environment all round. I am thankful for that.   There’s an iconic programme when Jimmy one time was ill, and Peter Brackley impersonated Jimmy Greaves’s voice with the spitting image puppet on screen. Ian had to play the straight man doing that. That is one of my all-time favourite episodes of the Saint and Greavsie show. Poor Jimmy wasn’t there. But it was brilliant. In the middle of that you look at Ian and go, “Hey, you’re a heck of a broadcaster. You’re a heck of a professional.”
          He was generous with it. If you were working on a programme with him, you always looked forward to it because you knew he was a team player and he would do his best to help you. He wasn’t one of those who was all “me, me, I, I”. He always had that thought about other people and people that worked off-screen, behind the scenes, as well.   Of the two of them, he was probably more of the TV pro that had to hold the show together, Jimmy was a bit of the maverick. He would come in on the Saturday morning, then the light would go on and he would perform and produce. Of course they’re different characters, but for that reason, the jigsaw just fitted perfectly. That partnership was so perfect.   We all felt we were part of something special on the show. That came across by the audience reaction. Every show, every broadcaster, I think has its chapter and the 80s belonged to the Saint and Greavsie. When you look back now — obviously before the boom of satellite and numerous stations — they had the stage pretty much to themselves.   There were two big actors at the time, one was the BBC and one was ITV, and because we shaped the show the way it became, it was a unique show at that time. Could it be replicated today? Very, very difficult, because the broadcasting cake has now been sliced into so many little pieces.   It was television magic, it was television gold, even towards the later years when that sort of punditry started to go out of favour. But the two of them maintained their standards right to the end. The last show, they finished it by going off singing together, “This could be the last time” and that was a lovely TV moment that summed them up really, laughing until the end.     His passing has affected so many different people. But what a life, what a fantastic, varied life he had. When his name comes up, people will smile.
