As my old man used to say “you can’t win em all” and you know what even the great Liverpool teams of the 70’s and 80’s never won every week either, it’s football if you did it would be shite and we’d be Man City 

Crap defending but hopefully they’ll sort that out next week as they fucking have to have to against City 

This isn’t the 70s or 80s it’s 2021 and in 2021  you absolutely have to win these games

Roy Evans-era defending. Van Dijk a tad better than the rest. Neither full back able to defend one against one and the cb's being bullied. Midfield not helping out either.

No one else will play like that against us apart from Watford. I'm pissed for sure though I don't see it like it's massive disaster.

That £100k+ a week for fuck all is a real kicker

To be honest mate I'd have moved him on this summer on his day a decent player but to injury prone, but for me sulking on the bench is a no no, in public show some passion behind closed doors sulk away.

When competing for the Premier League Title yes you pretty much do have to win them all. There is no such thing as a good point unless its against your direct title rivals, preferably away. 

 

If we are settling for top four then yes we can take the view "you can't win em all".

And who's won them all so far?

Can't wait to see their keeper have an absolute stinker against both Manc teams as is usually prescribed in the PL.

They'll get dicked four or five nil against both the manc sides and chelsea.

It’s isn’t one. A few players need a word but that was a cup final for them.

I think the days of Mane and Robertson being first choice starters is coming to an end. Absolutely terrible again.

 

And Van Dyke looks like he can't jump anymore.

 

It's only one game but some very worrying signs today.

Wouldn't get too worked up about it, that's the premiership, it throws up games like this that's why it's so popular around the world. It's a marathon and all that. 

Stop talking absolute Sense mate.

Subbing Jones for Bobby killed us

Ridiculous decision.

Yep a real facepalm moment. Jones was the best player on the pitch, why the fuck did he hook him? Terrible decision

Fair play to Brentford, they never gave up and kept going. But, our defending and some of our finishing was shambolic. I really thought this was going to end 4-3 like Bournemouth a few seasons ago.

 

I dont think Alli got near any of those goals and none of them had any real pace on them. Robbo, love the lad to death but he shows little composure at either end of the field today. Some might think that hard but you cant just go lashing at every fucking ball.

 

Said at half time the defence was shambolic. van Dijk and Matip were being split and the Brentford forwards seemingly winning the telling balls in the air.

 

Was a bit surprised Jurgen took Jones off at 3-2 as I thought the midfield needed beefing up rather than putting the returning Bobby on.

 

Was surprised VAR actually gave Mo's goal as I initially thought the one playing him onside was the lad marking him. But it was a defender on the far side who played him on to make Mo one of the quickest players to 150 PL goals. Well done Mo. Pity he had an even better chance and lofted it just over the bar.

 

To be honest, I dont think Sadio contributed anything worthwhile all game. That must be a bit of a concern to Jurgen. You were just hoping he'd get that chance to score but it never came.

 

We had two corners in quick succession and both Trent and then Robbo over hit the corners. Seriously, just what the fuck? Tsimikas takes a better corner.

 

So, what should have been 3 points, in my opinion, turned out to be 1 and could have been worse. Deffo 2 points dropped here but the omen is last time we played these away in the league, we drew and went on to win the league. Am I clutching at straws?

Yea, I'm not sure what that was about really with Mané having been a passenger most of the game. You could tell he wasn't up for it in the first half when he has a break away and pisses about until he tries to thread it for Mo instead of taking all the space to his left. I get he's right footed but he had plenty of room to drive left and cut it back for a shot.

That second goal...it was like VDV was set in concrete he just didn't get off the ground.

This.

Salah should have won at at 3-2, but Brentford were worth a draw.

Disappointing but it's never easy is it?

It should be easy when you play against dogshit really shouldn’t it?

I meant winning a league title.

But they really aren't dogshit are they. Credit where it's due sometimes.

Haha. I started an Aston Villa all-time XI about half an hour ago, which I thought would be quite good. However, having checked a list of Villa player. to refresh my memory, it’s pretty fucking shit! I think I’ll do a Blyth Spartans one instead,

Some great players late 70's early 80's Tone. Can't remember too many before that though. Post the XI  anyway.

Like Man City at home to Southampton 
 

Shit happens it’s 11 v 11 which is why you’re not guaranteed anything away from home in top flight football , Salah scores to make it 4-2 and we’re all happy ( well some).

We played poorly. I’d rather play poorly and come away with something rather than play poorly and come away with nothing,
