  1. 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.

    I'm proud of them all. Can't believe some have been criticising some of them. Agree 100% about Chirivella, he deserves a chance somewhere.

    Origi's disguise was genius it must be said. VAR you're spot on, it is supposed to be level you're ok and the timing of when they stop the video is just too open to abuse for these slide rule decisions to be anything but the brainchild of idiots

    Bobby often has poor spells but then bounces back, he will again soon. Virgil was my MotM because of the way he snuffed out so many of their breaks first half, the way he turned on the after burners when Haaland had a few yards start, he just brushed past Haaland and took the ball away. Magnificent player. Good to see Keita playing well again, let's hope the fitness remains. He doesn't half divide the Twitter fans. Hendo was very good again, solid defensively and some nice through balls, he does seem much more positive these days which is great. Definitely an opportunity to rest players Saturday and improve match fitness for some of the squad.

    Great report, what a team which, as you say, should be getting the headlines not Fraudiola

    Liverpool 2 Genk 1 (Nov 5 2019)

    No need for a long summary as it was forgettable. Of the 3 players with 'something to prove'. Gomez was fine but he does seem to get drawn forward a bit and leave gaps behind. Ox is going to be back as a regular soon, his bursts forward and eye for goal are something we lack elsewhere. Keita was good first half, I'll assume he tired second half as you say. But he's not shown me anything to justify the price or the hardline advocates on Twitter who won't hear of him being anything but the messiah. Salah's form is definitely a cause of minor concern, anyone else wonder if he might be replaced next year?
  8. Kane going down holding his face when Lovren had his hand on his shoulder and possibly patted his neck. I share your hate for that tool

    I'm with you on the midfield balance. Twitter fans seem hell bent on Keita as the 2nd coming and have a real down on Henderson. To me the balance was wrong in this match and it did show the worth of Hendo / Gini. Keita could well develop into something special but as yet it's been flashes of good play, disrupted by injury. I honestly hope he comes good but for the moment I would play one of Gini or Hendo or Milner every game with one of Ox /Keita. Fabinho should always play (until he gets the inevitable suspension).
  10. That's what tipped me over the edge, they did the same thing as Fab and got bugger all for it from Atkinson.

    Liverpool 2 Leicester City 1 (Oct 5 2019)

    Spot on as ever. Mané is just a terrific footballer and getting better which is stunning. His defending was excellent in the first half, he took the goal well and when he was fouled in the box (and he was kicked on the ankle) he made the ref make a decision whereas Kavanaugh had bottled out of those all day. When I saw Lovren's name I was worried but full credit to the bloke. He's never moaned and complained, he was excellent in this game. And Milner, I've praised him before but he's such a great leader. That pass was exceptional, his calmness for the penalty admirable and his game management very clever. (Should have scored first half mind). A word for Salah, he wasn't great but he never hides and makes himself available, always running and trying. I heard stories about Perez and his brother when they were in the NE and your view of him is spot on, I hope Robbo got a chance to smack him

    Liverpool 4 Salzburg 3 (Oct 2 2019)

    The quick free kick leading to their 2nd annoyed me. Time and again when we got free kicks Hwang or Minamino stood in front of it and stopped us playing them quickly or even hitting it forward at all. The ref (who was one of those who wanted to be the players' mate) let them get away with it as most of them do. Time to kick it off them and get them booked for not retreating 10 yards. Then they get a free kick, took it really quickly and we were totally unprepared. They had some excellent players, pace and technique, must have a brilliant scouting system. No doubt at least 3 of them will be off by next summer but they certainly look like a team that will cause problems, not least in the return fixture. Hopefully things are sorted by then.

    Thought Milner showed great professionalism in leading those youngsters, he's a top bloke.

    It was just a bad decision for the penalty, she didn't have to give it because of her lino. Bad decision. Otherwise I agree with all you say about VAR, absolutely ruining the game. The flag not going up, teams and fans unsure whether they can celebrate or feel gutted. Hate it. And not correcting the pen, your reasoning is the only one that makes any kind of sense. Pulisic looks a player, amazed we didn't do more to get him from the off. Kante is just brilliant and Kepa will get stronger too with time. Lampard giving their young players a go is good for them, will give them choices later. How pissed off they must be though that they get a ban and City get fined pocket money for a second offence?
