    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Ake played often earlier in the season. Then got injured, came back and got injured again. He has currently been out for a few weeks now, I think. But that hasn't affected them because they went into the season with sufficient cover. Turns out it made sense to have sufficient cover at center back with proper, experienced centre backs.

    January 2021 Transfer Thread

    It would be such an uplifting fairytale if Man City gave their biggest title rivals a helping hand by selling them a centerback. However, even if he has been shite for them, they would be scared that he might turn out good for us. Our happily ever after with Eric Garcia ain't ever happening mate. Pep wont allow it, neither would his bosses.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Going by that tweet, we basically went into this season with one super reliable CB, one reasonably reliable CB who had had a couple long term injuries, one CB made of crisps, one midfielder capable of playing CB and one kid called Billy the Kid. Man City on the other hand, saw the shambles that occured when they tried doing similar shite in defence last season. And promptly brought in two centerbacks for this season. Clean sheets galore and now 7 points ahead of us.

    Manchester United 3 Liverpool 2 (Jan 24 2021)

    Trent being that high was probably not advisable but that's how we have often played. Gini being timid was the reason the attack broke down in the first place for their first goal. Firmino gave it to him on the edge of the box and instead of turning to shoot, Gini laid it to back Firmino. Pogba read it, lunged in and the ball broke for their counter. Seconds later, 1-1. That's my big issue with Gini when it gets to the attacking third. He is often too conservative, he usually takes the easy option and can't spot a through ball into the box. And like Dave mentioned in one of the comments above, Gini's shooting and finishing is usually atrocious when playing for us. Yes, he plays a different role for the Dutch, but it is still a bit puzzling he can't seem to finish chances for us as well as he does for them. It'll be great if we got him to extend his contract. Because he is our most durable and reliably fit midfielder. But he is also a midfielder we can improve upon. He just doesnt contribute enough goals and assists for a team as dominant as ours.

    VAR Thoughts?

    They are really making it up as they go along. This season especially has been a shambles for the PGMOL. Incidents which were offside earlier are no longer offsides, as they now spend less than a few seconds checking by VAR. Compared to before when almost 3 minutes was spent checking if Mane's arm was offside at Goodison. Earlier in the season, there were penalties for every other handball and now they have reined it in a bit and only the occasional handball is punished. It's a fucking joke, the number of inconsistencies. City now have the benefit of scoring a goal which would be disallowed for any other team in the same season. Incredible.

    No striker, not even the very best and deadliest ever, always score more than half their chances on the regular. Salah's conversion rate is actually good this season. It's one of the best so far. It is a myth to think any striker gets 5 goals today with those chances. He scored two and has 19 for the season now. The guy needs to be cut some slack ffs.

    Cavani was on his way down before Fabinho touched him. The cunt wasn't even showing any intent on getting the ball. I'm never having that as a freekick. We still should have defended the freekick better though. It was a shit wall set up by Alisson. And though I Iike Thiago, it was a bit cowardly for him to duck out of the way.

    True, we attacked well. Problem is the defence is always going to cost us if we keep having to rotate our CBs with inexperienced kids and players who are actually not even defenders.

    That was never a freekick on Cavani. Fucking cheats.

    So VAR did not bother drawing any lines for that goal?

    That's what we get for playing a slow kid at CB.

    Utd (A) FA Cup - Sun 24/1 - 17:00

    Yep. It's laughable that people are still calling this Utd team "fucking garbage". They are not a great team, and yes, they've received some generous decisions this season. But they are very good at what they do and are clearly not shit. Especially not in front of goal.

    Utd (A) FA Cup - Sun 24/1 - 17:00

    Thought we had a reasonable first half. We have caused them problems and they have caused us problems. Considering the fact that we are playing a 19 year old kid who is slow and Fabinho at CB, Utd were always going to cause us problems with their pace. So far, I think this is one of our better performances at Old Trafford in recent years. Some of the criticism I am reading here seems over the top to me. I reckon Mane coming on would help in the 2nd half. And switching Thiago with Gini could help stabilise our midfield better too.

    Utd (A) FA Cup - Sun 24/1 - 17:00

    More reason we shouldnt be playing him as a defensive midfielder. Put Gini back there. He doesn't have the creative ability and is very often not decisive enough in the final third. But he is very energetic and has done well as a 6 on more than a few occasions for us. Swap him with Thiago.

    Unless Salah gets his arm yanked off or his neck broken, he isnt getting those freekicks.

    Reckon it is a 433 with Jones playing on the left of the front 3.

    Exactly. Some people just like to whinge either way.

    Ox is usually a bit better when he is played from the left of the front three. He has scored a few goals from that position, running onto his stronger right foot and smashing in. Playing him on the right flank is always a terrible idea though. I agree with Dave that Klopp should just have played Shaq there. Or at worst, should've switched Mane over to that position.

    Fully agree with the Thiago thing. We need him closer to their area where he can deliver those incisive throughpasses. Play Gini as a 6 and let Thiago go forward. He can beat a man, he can shoot from range and can do the unpredictable.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Great points made in the first paragraph. Then it devolved to blaming the front 3's dilemma on an oft-repeated claim about Salah ball hogging and not wanting to pass the ball to the others, especially Mane. It is a false narrative created by "mental gymnastics". The simple facts are there. Salah has set up more goals and opportunities for Mane than the other way round. Also, Salah has 9 more assists than Mane under Klopp's reign despite playing for a shorter number of years. Salah is just the easiest target because a fair number of fans dont find him as likeable as the others. That's why his great assists record keeps being ignored. We are usually told Firmino is the one who makes the attacking system tick. Maybe if he had been in better form over the past year, numbers wouldn't have declined for the other two. So in summary, when proper context is applied, all 3 of them must share the blame.
  25. You are criticising Hendo's passing as safety first, however the stats show Fabinho does more of that at CB too. Both of them are playing out of position and Henderson especially is still new to that role. He has played less than 5 full games there, I think. So it makes sense for him to be a bit cautious with his passing for now. It's not like midfield where if you lose the ball, you have center backs behind you to mop up. Lose the ball as a center back and you're more likely to give a clear run at goal. So calling Hendo out for it seems quite harsh. Maybe when he plays more games at CB and gets comfortable in the position, he'll make riskier decisions.
