Liverpool 1 Newcastle 1 (Apr 24 2021)

What do you call Liverpool in an empty stadium? Arsenal. Yeah, that’s who we are now. Mentality lightweights who waste loads of chances and shit themselves as soon as even the smallest amount of pressure is applied. 

 

Twice in a week we’ve done the same thing and it’s going to cost us a place in the Champions League. Those four points would have us in fourth, one point off Leicester in third spot. Forget all the other fucking horror shows we’ve had that led us into this predicament, despite all of that we could have still found ourselves in a decent spot just by seeing out these two games. And we shit down our own legs twice.

 

What happened at the end of this game was embarrassing, shameful and humiliating. The inability to see this game out against a team that had barely gotten out of their own half since the opening twenty minutes or so was just so bad that I have no problem in saying that this squad really don’t deserve to be in the Champions League next year. Let's be honest here, they've been pitiful this season and have shown no resilience in the face of adversity.

 

There are lots of thing wrong but the main issue is the one that’s been plaguing us all season. We either don’t create enough or when we do create we just don’t take them. The last couple of games have been so Arsenal-esque it’s making me just not want to watch anymore. I don't like sitting there screaming "you fucking knobheads" at the telly but they're driving me to it.

 

Shitting themselves in front of goal and then just completely bottling it late on and forgetting about the basics. Not keeping the ball, making stupid decisions, conceding set-pieces and generally just giving hope to opponents who had none. It's pathetic. 

 

We should have won this game by fucking six. It was just chance after chance created and fucking squandered. The one goal we scored was probably the hardest finish of the lot. Incredible goal by Mo just three minutes in. To not take advantage of that is just appalling. 

 

The other teams who are also chasing a top four spot keep opening the door for us and we keep slamming it in our own faces. It’s just embarrassing now and I’m not prepared to offer up any defence for them. Sure, they’ve had a lot of setbacks and it looked like they were feeling sorry for themselves a while back, but since then they’ve been given opportunity after opportunity to salvage something from a wretched season and they just seem to determined to ensure it gets even worse.

Just go into next week's game with the mindset that we're going to lose, then go out and twat a few balls on the driving range instead. The match reports virtually write themselves at the moment anyway and it'd be alot less rage inducing than actually having to watch it.

Klopp is almost certainly giving our league winning squad another chance.

 

Cente half aside, we'll only replace Gini if we sell midfielders on top of that, and we'll only buy a striker if we sell the deadwood up top too.

 

I think only Shaq, Keita and Origi are dead certs to be sold at this point from the 'winning' squad.

 

I suppose it will all depend on whether we get the bids we want.

If you reacted like that to the first "equaliser", imagine how you'd have reacted to the actual equaliser... 

 

I produced a foul-mouthed horror show in front of my kids.

I'm not a statto, but this one can't be ignored.

 

This year, at Anfield, we've had 146 shots, resulting in 4 goals.

 

Embarrassing, shameful and humiliating indeed.

I've never used the term grim as many times as I have this season. Grim stuff. 

 

Edit : maybe we could have brucie piss on the posts again or get the mop and clean up. Someone has bestowed bad juju on us.

So much I agree with in that report.

We’ve thrown away top 4 with the last two games imo.


on the Bobby thing I’ve been there for most of the season - he’s not on his own being poor but he just seems to offer so little to our team now.

Not just the lack of goals and assists which is pathetic but his link up play and winning the ball back has been shite as well. In some matches he’s broken down more of our attacks then helped in them.

Accurate report Dave. I dont see us getting 4th now.

 

Both Leeds and Newcastle should have been 6 points for us even with just the goal lead. Like you, I hate being critical of the boys and Jurgen but I consider Jurgen has a lot to look at himself for.

 

If the team's running on empty, why the fuck havent we been using all 3 subs especially in the last few games when you've made a big point about 5?

 

We're going to finish 5th at best. How many teams finishing 5th go on to win the title the following season? Not many id guess.

 

If Jurgen doesnt know deep down he does have a massive rebuild on his hands, we really are fucked.

This seasons home forms been a disgrace. We’ve had more than enough quality starting for us to see all these teams off yet they’ve all walked out of here with a result using the same tactics the pint of wine drinker turned up with West Brom.

 

We’ve only got ourselves to blame. We’ve made excuse after excuse this season instead of changing it up. I know I’ve harped on about our lack of goalscoring being our problem all season rather than the defence but it’s still a problem. 

 

Salah gets his goal but his overall play is awful but goals pay the bills.

 

Mane has a go every game but has reverted to his early days here when he’d look great 1 minute then look like he’s never kicked a ball in his life the minute after.

 

Firmino’s been carried for 2

seasons by the other 2 and is a waste of a shirt in his position. He doesn’t create, he doesn’t score and kills nearly everything we do. I’ve never seen a player get so many excuses made for him as this fella. Klopp doesn’t do it for anyone else so what’s he seeing here that we’re not.

 

The midfield have always been industrial so we can’t blame them for not scoring or creating and the defence have been sound until teams have piled on us the last 10 minutes when they know we’re done for the day.

 

Klopps got to take a lot of the blame for our form this season.

Continuing with the same formation and the players being terrible game after game while

not giving those on the bench any hope of getting in the teams created 2 problems. 
 

Those starting know they’re playing no matter what and the bench have thought he’s not giving me a go so what’s the point. 

 

No ones took this season seriously and our arrogance has fucked us up on and off the pitch. 
I can’t remember any other club getting involved in every negative story as much as us this season. 

 

I was praying Klopp and the players would straight bat the fuck up that was the super league but we’re right at the forefront again taking the pressure off the others.


Just shut the fuck up and do your talking on the pitch from now on.

Nothing to add really Dave.

 

Another game we should have won by a hatful, so that when the opposition do score it would be a case of "no clean sheet this week then..." 4-1 instead of 4-0.

 

The whole world has gone mad and we have been eaten by it...

Excellent report as ever Dave. Some very strange decisions by Jurgen this season. Why not use Gini in the rolehe plays for Holland and drop Bobby, for example, why hardly use Shaq, is Davis so shit we need to use Fab as a centre back, big Div never used as a central striker etc etc. Like you I have given up hope of anything good coming out of this season. It wouldn’t surprise me if Klopp went in the summer. There’s a lot of talk in Germany about the similarities to what happened at Dortmund.

The forwards were dreadful and the reason we didn't take the 3 points. Klopp should be fuming with them. I also hope Klopp looks back on this game and tries to make sense of his sub decisions - they've been awful all season too. This team needs a rest big time. Bring on the summer and then go full whack at it again next season. If we're in the Europa so be it; just use it like the league cup and try to develop players.

 ‘yer da’ 

A lot of the time, yer da's right.

Sad thing is I doubt there was one red who hadn't called the script.

We rightly moan about var and then fail to take advantage when it helps us.

So pissed off with this team.

We've been more front page headlines.

Totally agree, I hate myself for getting annoyed with these players but can't help it. Bobby played a pass near the end where he lazily lofted it in the air and we lost the ball. Poor execution but also braindead decision making which I just can't forgive. He's ruining his legacy and it hurts to say that as I've loved him for years. He can't even weight simple passes properly anymore though. It's bizarre that he can become so bad and Mane is exactly the same. They look like a couple of competition winners at the moment.

Another great report Dave agree with it all. I never thought I would give up on Bobby but I totally have and Mane as well. If he laughs one more time when he misses a sitter .....

I am firmly of the belief that we need to spend on quite a few players in the summer  it’s not going to happen though.....Klopp won’t want too and the greedy bastards that our are owners won’t give him the money anyway. Let the season end !

Great report in trying circumstances Dave, pretty much sums up what we’re all thinking at the minute. As I posted in the forum, I’m embarrassed to admit I hate watching us at the minute, I dread match day because I know my blood pressure will go through the roof and I feel like fucking the TV out the window! Personally I think we need two possibly 3 new players in, with a particular emphasis up front. I kinda think that Mané will come good again, but Bobby’s been getting progressively worse for nearly two years, that’s who he is now. The thing with Liverpool in our heyday was legend or not, if you were no longer doing it you got fucked out. You lifted the European Cup Thommo? Fuck you meet this young lad Hansen. That’s the way it should be

I’ve just looked up to see if Mo is still top scorer but I see bloody Kane has overtaken him. Be nuts if we finish 5th or 6th and have the Golden Boot winner!

Forward in missing intricate pass shocker. How about the two he laid on a plate for Mo and Jota in the 1st half?

Yep, I agree!

 

Kane got 2 goals against the shite the other night to overtake Mo. Mo pulled one back on Saturday and could have been ahead again if he'd taken his chances.

Just so frustrating and my blood pressure levels are getting to danger point during games now, usually from shouting at the forwards.

I don't think we can assume that this is something which tinkering will sort, it is time now for a rebuild. That doesn't mean throwing everyone out, eg Mané, but that midfield needs surgery and Bobby should be replaced sadly. Is Tsamekis that poor to never give Robbo a rest, too late now as there is time between games?

I’m beginning to wonder if we’ve already decided to cut our losses on Tsimikas in the summer and the reason he’s not featuring is in case he picks up an injury. 
 

Absolute madness that we spent 15m on this lad instead of a centre back and he’s played about 5 minutes. It’s not like Robbo’s met his usual standards since Christmas either.
