On merit, I'd play Tsimikas.  His crossing is unbelievable.  I don't want to read too much into the Robertson thing, Trent was equally as bad in some ways, but both full backs struggling is something we've not seen for a long while.  

 

At least with Trent he'll often pop up with an assist.  Robertson on the otherhand well  Crap for most of last Season, shit in the Euros and shit so far this Season.  He's giving Mane a run for his money.

Well that's the way it's supposed to pan out based on the last time we played them and we went on to win the league!

A bit of a perfect storm for Brentford in that so many of our players were not at the races especially at the back, and by going long and early they were negating our ability to press high and squeeze the pitch, nearly every second ball and bounce was favourable to them, AND they made the most of the relatively few chances they had.

 

Even when we play the more direct PL teams like Burnley, they are more about defending their penalty area, letting us have the ball and launching it long on the counter.

 

It's not a game that defines anything for us, but it is a wake-up call that being at the races is the real key to us getting something from games that are tight.

We should have won, we deserved to win, but we didn't due to fucking awful defending. We'll sort it out and move on. Nothing to say about Brentford because I don't give a fuck about them. On to Porto and then City. All will be well.

I just think we were too casual ….two years ago, Fabinho would have put his foot through their first, Virg would have cleared everyone for their second, and Joel wouldn’t have been so half arsed for their third.

 

it wasn’t just their goals though….Mo should have slotted away his casual chip and too many back heels around their penalty area…even from Hendo. The 1st half of 19- 20 would have had none of this complacency.

 

on the plus, Ivan Toney is a future Liverpool number 9.  Imagine him feeding through the two wingers with his clever flick ons, plus his finishing, movement and pressing. Plus he’s a boyhood Liverpool fan, even from Northampton.

Not the end of the world .

 

Thought we were very casual and there was a whiff of arrogance about us all day. Surely TAA's days as free kick taker are under threat.

 

Ha ha , just seen JoeBuck's post

Who's going to take them? We haven't had a great direct Free kick taker since Coutinho left.

Had an hour (and a few beers) to digest that result.  Disappointed we didn’t win. Relieved we didn’t lose.  Mo makes it four and we’re all in a better mood.

 

C’est la vie. On to Porto and twatting Citeh.

Mo and Thiago when fit. Trent is just wasteful…aka Roberto Carlo and Ronaldo…everyone remembers the rare occasions when he scored. 
 

even Curt, who I thought was brilliant today. He gives us someone extra.

I’ve took a step back as well and I have to say I think it was one of the all time stinkers. Terrible performance that we need to get out of our system double quick.

Thought even though we had the usual more possession they bullied us a fair bit.
Our defence picked a bad team to have an off day against, it’s true Curtis Jones was asleep on the first goal, but then that was compounded by Robertson not stopping the cross and Fabinho not realising how close the guy who scored was to him. 

Both the second and third goals came from crosses being put in from the right side unopposed and them overloading us on the back post to win the ball and create the two scoring chances. Ordinarily I would say that surely Robertson, Mane and one of the DM’s might have stopped the crosses coming in, but I also think Alisson should boss his 6 yard box more given his size and agility and get a punch to crosses like the one that led to their second goal.

We did enough pressing from midfield, especially in the second half, and played some slick stuff to create opportunities, but not for the first time we missed so many score-able chances and I’ve banged on about this in the past, we score shitloads, but we also miss shitloads.

However, overall it was an exciting game, Brentford showed a lot of guts and, probably deserved something, but really we shouldn’t be dropping two points against them.

Let’s hope we don’t regret those two points at the end of the season.

Brentford are still surfing a wave. Sadly they will get a couple of injuries, someone will thrash them and they will cave for the rest of season.

Fair play to them- well deserved

Think Klopp said before the game 90% wouldn't be enough to beat the team and so it turned out. Half our team, mainly in defence, were not at their best for whatever reason and that meant we conceded three goals. Far play to Brentford who kept going and were effective in how they attacked us, but we had enough chances to put the game to bed.

They got a bit lucky with a couple of their goals with those scrambles but good on them for having a go. I thought Curtis Jones was well off the pace despite his goal and Fabinho not anywhere near his best,also VVD is not quite there. Robertson is frustrating the fuck out of me too. He gets into so many great positions and does fuck all with them. Its easy to see why people are pushing Tsimikas inclusion,although he's not as good a defender as Robbo. Just too many players off their game today.

Yeah, agree with that. The ‘Oooh, no big club will fancy coming here now,’ narrative is always a bit false too. They won’t be as casual as we were.

It wouldnt be so bad if Trent tried to vary them, lay them off for someone to run onto and hit but, we all know he goes for the up and over the wall job.

 

To be fair, this is something the coaching staff should be working on. Our corner kicks are poor in my opinion and, Tsmikas has been a breath of fresh air when he takes them.

    • Agreed. And you can say exactly the same thing about organised religion! 
    • https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/vaccines/timeline "A typical vaccine development timeline takes 5 to 10 years, and sometimes longer, to assess whether the vaccine is safe and efficacious in clinical trials, complete the regulatory approval processes, and manufacture sufficient quantity of vaccine doses for widespread distribution." ACCELERATED TIMELINE IN A PANDEMIC Some clinical trial phases are combined Well that's nice. Don't get me started on the 3-6 month efficacy and the fact it was designed for alpha strain and not the mainstream delta. Are you going to keep taking it until the 8th booster? The third and (some places fourth) boosters are coming up soon ^_^ Did you know that unvaccinated people have been found to have a very similar viral load to fully vaccinated people? And that because vaccinated people will have less symptoms it is easier for them to transmit that viral load because they don't know they are sick? But don't bother googling the top notch educational resources reporting this. Just ignore me and downvote instead, and go back to your happy little echo chamber. If the vaccine is effective at protecting yourself, why do you care if young healthy people take it? That has nothing to do with you, contrary to what Pfizer would like you to believe. Did you know that Pfizer paid the largest criminal fine in history at $2.3 billion for lying? They sound like some really honest trustworthy people and I can't wait to inject them into my body. Upset because the liberal media echo chamber isn't telling you anything? Maybe you should question more and review more news sources and studies, because guess what, every news source is biased and has an agenda. They are private news media corporations and they do not give a shit about you, nor does the random journalist spreading their opinion piece as fact. Step 1) Classification: Unvaccinated Step 2) Symbolisation: Plague-rats, anti-vaxxers, covidiots, etc Step 3) Discrimination: Vaccine passports, job exclusion, social exclusion, businesses closed, travel denied Step 4) Dehumanisation: They dont care, they are evil, Everything is their fault, they are insane, They are holding us back Step 5) Organisation: Australian quarantine camps, Austrian forced compulsory vaccination, Extreme forced lockdowns (China), Mass-media narrative to demonize the unvaccinated, Extremely excessive lockdowns in democracies Step 6) Polarisation: Claim that they are anti-vaccine when they are obviously anti-mandate, understate the size of protests (say thousands instead of tens of thousands), Censor and block users from describing adverse reactions on places like Tik-Tok, Youtube... Publish pieces in the media that make everyone hate the unvaccinated ("Anti-Vaxxers Hate Chapmans Ice Cream!"), Conflate the unvaccinated with pre-pandemic anti-vaxxers even though they took all previous vaccines before the pandemic Step 7) Preparation: Deny them travel, businesses, jobs, so they are homeless and destitute, exclude them from all services (even surgery) if they are not vaccinated, the list goes on... Step 8 ) Persecution: Shut down their businesses, lock them in their homes if they still have one, prevent them from going anywhere except the grocery store, make society afraid of them with daily Two Minutes Hate articles in all major media designed to ostracize them from the community. Step 9) Step 10) By the way, in case you are confused or wondering, Coronavirus is never going away, just like the flu didn't after the 1920 pandemic. This is not going to end unless we have some major medical breakthrough in virology or design a vaccine that actually works properly and not "sort-of". THIS PANDEMIC IS NEVER GOING TO END, THESE RESTRICTIONS ARE NEVER GOING TO END, THEY ARE GOING TO KEEP TAKING AWAY MORE OF YOUR FREEDOMS BECAUSE YOU ALLOW THEM TO. WE REACHED HERD IMMUNITY LEVELS A LONG TIME AGO AND NOTHING HAPPENED AND WE ALL STILL HAVE TO WEAR MASKS AND GET MORE BOOSTERS. Don't just agree with everyone else and be a little parrot. Grow a brain for yourself and research this. If you are vaccinated, great, but don't fucking force your garbage on me. Don't forget, you are not allowed to question this vaccine or disagree ever, that is simply not socially acceptable. Having hesitations and not wanting an experimental medical treatment that many of us don't even need is no longer socially acceptable. How does that freedom taste? None of this should make you mad at the unvaccinated, we just want you to fuck off with your mandates. Don't tell us we need to put garbage in our body just because you like to. if you are putting on your >:( NPC face right now, that's because you hate it when someone disagrees with you and is right, and you are a fascist who does not support people having medical choice.
