    Can't believe that's not a penalty but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.

    Thought we played well overall, certainly encouraging but could've been undone by a better side. Overall just glad to get the 3 points and hopefully we can build some momentum for the rest of the season.

    There we go Bobby! Thank God for the deflection!

    Genuinely in shock they've allowed that to stand, they must've been reading our conspiracy thread and figured they'd toss us one.

    Caoimhin Kelleher

    Probably had him stand in at CB during training.

    Glenn Roeder

    RIP
  7. Agreed I want him here until his contract is up at least, we'll see how it all looks then.

    Thiago bumps into someone on a 50/50, foul and he's a fucking donkey. Salah's getting fucking mugged and the ref plays advantage. Trash refereeing again.
  9. Thought the same myself. I personally don't see his style of play/management being quite as suited to the international game. Whilst his infectious enthusiasm and ability to get players to buy in is nailed on for all the nationalism of a Euro or World Cup campaign, his tactics require high levels of fitness and that can just as easily go tits up depending on how the players turn up for the major tournaments in their respective summers. Also the team building thing might not be as easy as one would think with the stop start nature of international football. Sure it's a different challenge and, on paper anyway is less intensive but I just think he's more suited to club level football and the ability to be with a squad day in and day out through out the season.

    Alisson Becker

    Very sad news to read. Hope Alisson can go to the service and all that, no idea what the restrictions are like in Brasil.

    Roberto Firmino

    I'm not going to sit here and deny that he's been poor, and I'm one of his biggest supporters. I have noticed though that even when he does make runs he doesn't seem to the ball passed to him, particularly by Mané today but Salah and I'm sure the midfielders are guilty of it as well. It's fair enough that the other two choose to run at their man as they have the speed to do so but sometimes the smart decision is to make the pass, Bobby generally has the opposite problem where he always looks to pass but a lot of that is lack of confidence (I know a lot at this point would say ability). The main issue this season and probably since the restart of last at least is he hasn't even been getting into the positions to make that final pass like he used to.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Agreed. It's frustrating because I believe he was bought because of the teams sitting 11 back to offer us more creativity when we're dominating possession. The problem that I see is without Hendo and especially Fabinho playing next to him his lack of pace defensively is exposed and our CB situation compounds that because the slightest mistakes are being punished. At the other end the ball just isn't sticking and all of our forwards prefer the ball into feet in those situations instead of running in behind. Possibly because other than Thiago the others in midfield aren't the kind to hit those balls into space. We've also been incredibly unlucky at times/suffered from more decision making from the striker.

    VAR Thoughts?

    It's one of those things that could be implemented quite well and therefore help evolve the games but because of the sheer unwillingness of those making decisions to use it honestly it's better off being thrown out, and I think that's been the plan the whole time in the Premier League. The issue they'll have with that argument is other leagues and the top European Competition implementing it without much of a fuss.
