Just watched the game again.

 

A few of my takes:

Trent started well until the yellow card incident so that affected him, as he was off for the remainder of the half. 


Foul by Botman, who went through the back of Gakpo. There was no mention of a yellow.


We were well on top until Trent's yellow.


The challenge on Gordon by Trent was halfway inside their half and was gentle. No way would a yellow  have been mentioned if he had not already been booked. 


Robertson gave the ball away consistently, even with 11 men.


Endo blocked passing lanes into Isak.


Neville blew smoke up Newcastle's hole all day. They finished 4th on 67 points last season and have 3 points from 3 games this season. They aren't City.


Drury is much better than Tyler, but he loves some players. Almiron got the ball at one stage, on the wing 45m from goal, Liverpool had 8 behind the ball, and he creamed himself. 


Newcastle pressed well, but we were very dangerous on the break with 11. Their midfield tired in the game because they got too excited with the drama of the first 30 minutes. Tonali was like a madman but tired badly.


When a pundit, a so-called expert, is asked if a red card is warranted, he shouldn't reply that the player gave the ref a decision to make. We all know that, what is the correct decision in your opinion? That's what you are paid for. 


Teams should just play the ball over the top v Newcastle. Pope just boots it out of play always. 


Newcastle didn't offer much in the 1st half other than corners (including the Almiron save by Alisson) and long shots. 


Joelinton's 4th foul, in the 46th minute (and 3rd in 8 minutes, resulted in no yellow), was for going through Mac Allister. This just 2 minutes after the ref warned him after the 3rd foul. He fouled Gakpo, who was breaking, from behind 2 minutes into the 2nd half and still no yellow.


From the 59th minute when Elliott and Jota came on, until Darwin's first, they had 3 shots on goal, Almiron hit the post, Gordon shot wide from outside the box and a speculative header by Wilson. We had 60% possession and a lot more chances. We seemed to push up when we had better footballers in midfield, while Jota was more aggressive and positive than Gakpo had been. 


Isak did absolutely fuck all in the game. 

 

We are better with the better footballers playing in midfield.

I still can’t quite believe yesterday.

 

If we’d still have Hendo, Milner, Fabinho, Firmino etc it would a superb result.

 

The fact we were without Konate & VVD,  Szoboszlai, Mac Allister & Endo making at best, their 3rd appearance and Quansah playing 10/15 mins in the most difficult of circumstances… this type of result (and to an extent Bournemouth) makes Mentality Monsters 2.

Klopp looked like he was going to fight the Newcastle bench after that first goal before the mist cleared and he restrained himself.

 

 

Brilliant. I think we all know what Klopp would have done if he could get away with it. 
I’m still flying today.

Love seeing Diaz giving it biftas for both goals there, especially the 2nd. 
 

He could quite easily have seen his arse getting hooked after 25 mins yesterday.

Diaz looks better every game. That mazy run and shot in the first half was mwah! Almost forgotten about in all the madness.

If we'd have had Hendo, Milner and Fabinho in side yesterday we'd have lost 3-0
