    Adrian is a ticking time bomb, he had ages to clear that ball and ended up with the rebound fortunately going wide. He has clearly been told to hoof it up as he has since Villa but he still takes risks. Don't trust him at all. Gomez deserves credit for stepping up, Fab, rightly, got all the plaudits, but Joe took responsibility. Obviously it needs to continue for months. Trent is the other whose form has dipped significantly this year, I like the fact he is using his weaker foot much more (take note Mo) but he's not been near his best. However, this was a night to take the result as you said. Time on the pitch for the squad is good too but let's get the points and then have an easier finish to the group, something which we seemingly never do. Big night it felt like to me.

    Yeah, furious yesterday, furious this morning when I woke up, still furious. That twat has to be sacked and humiliated publicly for either incompetence or cheating. The reports about the rest of the match are irrelevant really as down to 10 men the game would have been different. You're right about Richarlison, he has a tile loose, he's just out to cheat and hurt people. I went to a non league game immediately after this and, yes, the ref made mistakes but, you know what, the players moaned for a moment but then just got on with it. That's football, not a computer game which is what VAR is making the PL. If it is going to decide offsides they have to have a margin for error as selecting the exact freeze frame for the moment the ball leaves the foot is inexact at best. Level used to be onside, I have no idea what the rule is anymore. It seems designed by Dido Harding. The news on van Dijk just makes everything worse. I'd do harm to Coote if I met him. Oliver doesn't escape, why didn't he ask to see the footage or did he think Virgil was having a laugh? If Liverpool didn't mean the world to me I'd bin the PL altogether, many of my mates already have what with VAR, PPV and all the other marketing acronyms. Fuming.

    Penalty incident was at 1-0 but it's irrelevant really, just more proof that Atkinson and VAR are crap. You're kinder than I am about Adrian and if he plays against Everton I think we'll be in trouble as they will look to exploit him and the lack of confidence in him. Otherwise I agree with everything you say, the attitude just stank from the defence (Robbo apart) and the midfield. Bobby has been my favourite in recent years but I don't recognise him these days as the man who was the key to how we played. Keita's fan club can bleat all they like but he's never convinced me and no idea what he was doing last night, Fabinho was awful too. It has to be attitude after we played so well 6 days before. Hendo's face on the sidelines was thunderous. I have been watching Liverpool for 50 years and I am sure I have seen worse performances but I just can't recall one, perhaps some of the Souness era UEFA Cup games. I thought Salah was Motm, took his goals so well though Robbo never gave in and created more than anyone else.

    Agree with everything, as usual. I hate these offsides being allowed to go on too, it'll lead to an unnecessary injury at some point as well as the scenario you describe. It's just stupidity.

    Liverpool 2 Aston Villa 0 (Jul 5 2020)

    First half was abysmal. Origi simply isn't good enough, we all know it. Financial restraints or not we can't rely on the front three being fit all next season and we need someone in their league at least. I wish him well but please Jurgen, much as you like to improve players, you have gone as far as you can with Div.

    Manchester City 4 Liverpool 0 (Jul 2 2020)

    Actually disagree about the Ederson thing, it bounced and hit him was what I saw. I got annoyed about the linesman on the far side though who first half dodged making offside decisions to let VAR rescue him, City go through and get a corner which is allowed to happen of course. So they get a chance on goal because he didn't do his job. Good points about the front three, I am concerned that we let Werner go though the wages were way too high. We need better than Origi as backup for sure, very grateful for his contributions 2 years ago but he's done nothing this year. I'd give Williams a game at left back to see if he can play as backup for both sides

    Trent giving away a stupid freekick at the end which led to their offside goal, needs to cut that out

    And saying we should laugh at Costa throwing the ball away and being a shithouse. The Gigi thing is weird. At least I could press mute though

    Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0 (Mar 3 2020)

    Origi left instead of centre, Minamino centre instead of left. Nobody who can put a corner past the front man, especially Milner who then got a yellow for chasing Pedro after his corner led to a Chelsea breakaway. Mind if every team is allowed to grapple Virgil at every corner with impunity that's almost irrelevant. And Jenas is a complete twat, thought Alan Smith was bad but strewth

    Liverpool 3 West Ham 2 (Feb 24 2020)

    Alisson seemed to get really unnerved by Antonio. For their first goal he was pushing Antonio away even as the ball was delivered and so wasn't quite ready for the header. Expect to see it used more by teams in upcoming games.

    Nice line about Fabinho's cobwebs in another very good report Dave

    Shewsbury Town 2 Liverpool 2 (Jan 26 2020)

    Great report. I'd have hammered Origi who was pathetic with every touch until late on but those three were the main culprits and deserve the scorn. The ref and the linesman should have spotted a clear handball first half and surely the linesman could see where Larouci fouled the Shrewsbury player, he is supposed to be in line. Those two decisions changed the scoreline but that's almost irrelevant given the nature of the performance. Credit to them, I expected them to fade last 20 minutes after they put a lot into pressing etc. but they kept going buoyed up by the occasion. Agreed about having basically the same team plus other recovering players and giving them a week off afterwards and aws that the likes of Hoever and yesterday's youngsters should be pleading to be involved.
  13. Excellent, I copied the line about Rashford's back to quote it a s a top comment but then found myself thinking I could do the same thing several times over. Agreed about Wolves too, this is as hard a game as we'll have.

    Bravo on getting it right do quickly. Magnificent team, up there with any I have seen in the last 45 years of going. And this on a night when two of our front three weren't at their best by any means. Trent was excellent defensively as well as being unreal going forward, great covering play at one point. Henderson was everywhere and some more great through balls, he's in prime form. Bobby was Bobby, different class. Great to see Gomez back to his best too. But just a superb performance all round.
