Quite good at this shit

Nobody better getting the ball on that edge of the box than Mo. Signing that man is one of the best things ever to happen to this football club. And I didn't even want him when we were in for him! Shows what I know

4th time we've scored 55 goals in our opening 19 matches, in our entire history.

 

2 of those were in the 1800s and the last one in 86/87

Some nice stuff in the 2nd half.

 

Hopefully everybody has a clean bill of health after it ahead of a mad run of games coming up....We really need to get revenge on those bitter twats - a full strength Liverpool handing them a proper twatting.

That went exactly as expected.

 

With a starting line-up featuring players that aren't regulars, we were always going to lack cohesion. Along with a lack of cohesion was a lack of tempo, and it meant that when Porto did come forward, they often got themselves into promising positions.

 

But then Porto showed what they are adept at. Getting into promising positions and cocking it up, and hitting the deck any time one of our players so much as breathed on them. I swear Otavio and Edmilson must have hit the deck in 'agony' a dozen times each in this match.

 

Sadio had a goal ruled out for the tightest of offsides. Thiago hit a scorcher to open the scoring. Mo did what Mo does. Taki was unlucky to have a goal ruled out for offside. I thought the current rule was that if the ball ends up with an attacker in an offside position after the ball has been deliberately played by a defender, it resets the phase of play and the attacker is then deemed to be onside. Sadio's effort took a clear deflection of a Porto player attempting to block the effort before it fell to Taki who was ahead of the play.

 

Anyway, 5 wins from 5, and now we could see a scenario where Jurgen rests more first-teamers in Milan while Porto and Atletico try to out-shithouse one another. It's entirely possible that Atletico finish bottom of the pile.

Looks like it:

 

  1. from the first match in the group stage, players and team officials are suspended for the next competition match after three cautions, which did not result in a red card, as well as following any subsequent odd-numbered caution (fifth, seventh, ninth, etc.).

 

Reset only after the quarter-finals.

 

Earned himself a free shot at someone. What a pro.

We might not be shit at football after all.

At least him and Chamberlain are actually putting in a shift recently.  They’ll never have the quality but it was unforgivable how they’d stole a wage for quite some time.

Exactly. The bare minimum is to work hard.

Overall, no complaints. Have to say that Porto being completely shit in the final third secured a no-fuss win.

Thiago’s sublime finish I will be watching over & over for a while. Striking perfection.

Youngsters showed confidence, and that clean sheet is sweet.

Stupid get from Africa trying to make a mountain out of mole hill over Klopp's comments about AFCON.

 

Clearly he does not get irony....about 3 mins 20 in....

Klopp would probably have been better just saying ‘oh for fuck’s sake!’

Not a good first half, second much better.
 

Would’ve preferred if we’d rested more players, but no hope of that obviously, and will be the same against Milan I guess.

 

Happy about the result, very happy for the Morton lad and delighted we didnt pick up any injuries.

Hopefully in Milan we will be able to start more of our back up players - likes of Gomez, Milner, Keita, Jones and Origi..

 

Seems like tonight was just a touch too soon for a few tonight after injuries/not quite ready to start.

 

Hopefully have less injuries by then - something like:

 

Alisson

 

Neco

Gomez

Konate

Tsimikas

 

Milner

Jones

Keita

 

Origi

Mimamino

Oxlade (don't like him in front 3 but better than risking Jota)

For someone like me that no-longer stays up all night and logs on at breakfast time, that's a good sign.
It means no post mortem.

Milner is suspended but, otherwise, this looks pretty good.
 

But I imagine Salah insists on starting / scoring [sic]

Their match vs Atletico is going to look like The battle of the Somme, bodies everywhere
