  1. I'll feel even worse if Antonio abuse Hendo in the air. We might do better playing our best midfield to dominate possession and cut off the supplies. The options available all suck. Playing Rhys would be a desperate move, but what good choice do you have. A slight chance he'll play out of his skin to prove doubters wrong.
  2. Isn't Rhys Williams ahead of him at this particular moment? Phillips had been out injured for a while. Rhys also got minutes against Ajax to defend high balls, I think he'll be used.
  3. He tried a few over the top balls like Virgil used to do, and he wasn't very good at it. It's a learning process for him. I didn't mind.

    Takumi Minamino

    I don't see how Minamino can dig himself out of this hole. The whole team had nothing to write home today but Taki struggled more than most, if not the most -- against very meh opposition. I don't see him getting many chances to impress after this showing. Klopp's patience may be infinite, but he had also shown he had no hesitation cutting loose a lost cause.

    The ultimate Captain thread

    In my football watching lifetime, only Sami and StevieG are the real choices. Rather hard but I'll go with the Phil Collins' fan.

    Wolves (A) Premier League 20/1/2020 - 20:00

    I'm out of superlatives for this Liverpool team. Wolves were a good and tricky opposition, as expected. Traore was a nuisance and caused Robertson endless problems. Salah was too selfish and squandered too many good opportunities by refusing to square the ball -- the sort of stuffs that usually caused rows between teammates and created bad vibes, sinking team-spirit like how it annoyed anxious supporters. But this team kept on going and going, overcoming obstacles both without and within like another walk in the park, deservingly notched another win. Not the smoothest of performances, but this just might had been my most favorite Liverpool game of this memorable season. What did Klopp call this group of players? Mentality giants? At this point that is no exaggeration.
  7. VVD -- another dominant performance. Also the scorer of the winning goal. Wijn -- brillian press resistor. Hendo - captain performance.
  8. Alisson, Firmino, VVD. It was hairy, the boys looked dead tired near the end; and since Atkinson bought into Spurs' diving early on, we were scared to touch them. Alisson's solid handling saved our bacon repeatedly.

    Is Virg okay? He took a little long to get up after a tackle.
