  1. If they get a 3rd, I can see us conceding a 4th. Its that type of game. Doing my head in.
  2. We’re reasonably creative, but we can’t execute passes. At this stage I’d take a draw, for sure. PENALTY!!
  3. However...it wont make it easier for us. As we saw against Chelsea
  4. Christ this is like bloody cup final. Might have to check me blood pressure.

    Roberto Firmino

    Yip, true. Mo has been in a class of his own, for sure - which tends to relatively make everybody else look ordinary. We even moan about Sadio (103 goals) I’d argue that if Mo was at CF he wouldn’t have been so prolific, and if Bobby had been on the left or right more consistantly, he may have slotted more ‘Coutinho’ type goals. Those angled shots cutting inside, are a very common score in the Prem for the good strikers. Having said that, with TAA and Robbo feeding low crosses, Bobby should have poked many more in, from goalkeeper spillages etc

    Roberto Firmino

    I thought Barnesy nailed it pre-game in the studio. Score or not, he’s incredibly important for his service to Mane & Salah. He’s got 70 goals though, he’s not THAT far behind the other two.

    I thought Jurgen summed up the game well, and if he can accept a draw, then I can accept a draw, but omg if the shot hadn’t hit Matip, Ali would have saved it, and we just may have got the three points.

    Mohamed Salah

    No doubt in my mind. Absolutely top drawer. I’ll say this too. The relationship between we the fans and Mo is part of the reason he is so good. To not shine and get opportunities to develop at previous clubs says it all. We’ve nurtured him, and allowed him to develop his natural game in the right atmosphere. Like previous top strikers we’ve had, we are definitely getting, and will continue to get the best out of Mo. When he goes, eventually, he’ll be leaving his best days behind him. This is a classic ‘holy trinity’ moment. After the anthem and Sir Roger tribute, how could the legend of Mo Salah not manifest itself today? Get the fucking deal done ffs.

    Sadio Mane

    Beautiful goal that will instil his old confidence. I think we’re going to see a more fluid synergy between Sadio and Mo this season. That goal was against the best defence in the Prem. Superb.

    Man City (H) - Sun 3rd Oct 2021 (4:30pm)

    hahaa. Indeed. We can take heart that City are the second best team in the league, mate. Only City have the capability to do what they did at Chelsea, and to us in the first half. I’m confident that in most games we’ll outscore the opposition regardless of defensive errors, and lets not forget how many we conceded in the title challenge under Rodgers. We were a leaky boat with great scoring capability, and we nearly won it.

    Great Documentaries

    A.I. is on it’s way - finding it’s own solutions and becoming intuitive. What does it mean for us? I wasn’t expecting to feel as emotional as I did, watching this excellent documentary on the world’s oldest board game.

    RIP Sir Roger

    Yip, my Mum also, was completely besotted with him. Every weekend through the 60s we’d watch him and Ian St John run riot in the box. Absolute Legend. Saint John only left us a few months ago, and only a year younger than Roger. They must be putting a new team together, up there in the New Anfield. Bye Mr Hunt, and thanks for every cherished memory.
  13. Great performance, that. Milner was pretty boss tonight - I think he’s got to start against Citeh. TAA gonna miss international duty, which will be a blessing in disguise. For their goal, hard to pin the blame on any individual, but Gomez for me, is not a natural right back. Brilliant centre alongside VVD, but weak at RB. Milner to start on Sunday. I think we can win number seven this season. Would I take it over the league? Hell no, I want it all and I want it now.
  14. Coasting at the moment. Can’t possibly last.
