FC Porto (H) – CL, Wed 24th Nov 2021 (8:00pm)

Recommended Posts

Minamino was disappointing. Weirdly enough, he resembles more and more a kind of poacher. I find he has quality in the box but outside of making some decent runs here and there he pretty much does nothing everywhere else on the pitch. He's not this technically gifted attacking midfielder he would seem like. Not good enough really.

 

As for the game, Porto continues to be our punching bag. They must have been trying not to score in the first half. And then we just dominated the second.

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 

Think most people felt the same.

Incredible player.

Think you missed the point there DS.

Planned booking I would say.

I realised that soon after. At first I thought it was our last group game,then realised we have one more to play. A shrewd move by Milner.

He's that professional he won't even go Christmas shopping with his bird.

Got to be there for the lads love.

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.

I think he's from Wallasey...

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....

 

 

Seen that on Twitter. Bellend took the comment completely out of context and just wants to make a name for himself.

Otavio and Evanilson were utter shite last night. Not great footballers, but that's presumably because they spend so little time with the ball as they are too busy rolling around like cunts.

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

 

 

I couldn't work as a football manager and actually do press conferences. 

 

Every single one I'd end up like Eddie Murphy talking about Joe Louis in the barber shop scenes in Coming to America.

Like most players, it's hard to properly judge when they're playing in make shift sides in league cup games and/or the odd start/subs appearance with something approaching a first team.

 

Klopp put's a lot of emphasis on rhythm for a reason, Ox is in a similar position but because he's getting more game time you're starting to see the performances improve.

To top it off, the cunt kept referring to “presser” not press conference, , one for the shitness thread too

Can't believe Thiago wasted all those years messing about in Germany when he could have been over here running our midfield instead.

 

Wonderful hit last night. At his best he makes the game look easy.

Didnt check, but has to be 87/88 surely?

No it's 86/87. I got the other one wrong though, as the 2 in the 1800s were 54 goals!

 

"It is also helping them push new frontiers in the Anfield record books, with a second-half double taking their haul after 19 games to an incredible 55 goals.

 

Just once in the Reds’ entire history have they emulated that tally at this stage of a season, back in Kenny Dalglish’s managerial heyday of 1986/87.

 

Kopites would have to thumb through the annals of history to the 1890s, when they plundered 54 goals in two campaigns, to find a closer equivalent."

So just to summarise Liverpool last night...

 

Has more points than all 3 teams combined in the so called 'Group of death'.

 

Became the first English side in 82 years since Wolves (1939, pre World War 2) to score two or more goals in 16 consecutive games.

 

Equalled club record of 55 goals in first 19 games (achieved by Kenny's 86/87 team).

But we are still shit, overrated and all the players take PEDs.

He really personifies the phrase: Rolls Royce of a player.

Only had time to watch the highlights yesterday.

 

Thought Thiago's goal was pretty good. Reminded me of one I scored on my Over 50's league debut.
