  1. Just to clarify, I wasn't casting any doubt on Elliott's talent. He does deserve to be part of the squad next season. I like him a lot.

     

    My post was more about the Echo going beyond parody with their regular narrative of "young player xyz would save us millions and solve multiple problems, hence FSG can be forgiven for not splashing out".

    He was ruled out for the season wasn't he?

    Yep, thought so too.

     

    He should just be considered a bonus player now. No need asking about his fitness or looking forward to his recovery. If he happens to be fit for a game next season, great!! Otherwise, we should just pretend he doesnt exist. 


  3. Milner was brilliant. When Henderson isn't available, Milner's leadership is always quite useful.

     

    Loved how he acknowledged the shithousery from Casemiro after he got up from that tackle near the touchline. He would probably have been thinking "yeah, I would have done the same to you too if I had the chance. Just ask Benzema".

    Feel sorry for the lad, played well tonight, hardly put a foot wrong and he's got more on the ball than given credit for. 

     

    Probably his last ever game in the CL.

    His ability on the ball is one of the most pleasant surprises about him. Not van Dijk level of ball playing but good enough to not look out of place in a team like ours.

     

    When I started this thread, I was just thinking it would be nice if we could get a couple good performances out of him because he was a likeable fella. Now, I believe he has actually done more than enough to merit 4th CB spot next season.


  5. I'm in favour of an appeals system. It seemed one of the obvious solutions to me fairly early on when the VAR shambles started unfolding. Let VAR just be in the background without actively interfering constantly. 

     

    As pointed out by a couple of people here, such a "one appeal" system would greatly limit the number of times VAR intervenes in the game. It would limit the number of stoppages and let the game flow a bit better. And having only one appeal per game would make teams well aware that they just cant waste their appeal, unless they are absolutely sure an injustice has been done.

    Jesus Christ.

     

    Klopp is saying there is nothing wrong with him physically, we do all kind of test on the players to monitor these things.

     

    If there were anything covid related, the club would know.

    It's unbelievable how people have gotten it into their heads that it must be covid related. Klopp literally said the opposite.

     

    The stats are showing that he runs nearly as much as he did previously and other stats show there isn't a significant drop off in most of his metrics. (An article on the Athletic covered it in-depth). Mane is just experiencing a dip which is natural and happens to many forwards at some stage in their careers.

    Greedy twat at the end taking the shot on instead of squaring it to Jota. If Salah had done that to him he would have had a hissy fit.

    Exactly.

     

    And in recent games, Salah has been setting up great chances for Mane which he has been wasting anyway.

    That's actually a great idea. 

     

    Another thing that seems odd, how come in the champions league, we never seem to get this drawn out shitfest that the premier league serves up every other week? 

    In both European competitions, they barely fiddle with the tight offsides as rigorously as the cuntish PL officials do.

     

    They mostly give such goals. I can remember at least 4 or 5 tight goals in the CL and EL which would have been ruled out if they had been scored in the PL

  9. Gini has been great for us. However,  I am not onboard with this plan to wring every last drop out of him before we let him go on a free.

     

    He hasnt added much to our midfield in the past few games. He has been ran into the ground and hasn't looked fresh recently. Klopp should have rested him for this game because we know he is going to be needed vs Madrid. Wouldn't have minded Jones or Thiago starting in midfield today.

    A couple of Villa players knew all about it after making the mistake of competing in the air with Phillips today. We’d be running away with everything this year if his more talented teammates showed the same attitude. 

    You are spot on. No exaggeration, there was a header Phillips went to win which ended with the Villa player staggering and falling over, 5 or 6 yards away from him.

     

    It just seemed as if Phillips headed the ball and headed the player at the same time.

    A few questions.

     

    Why is it now almost seen as a «truth» that Mane is in any way physical affected by covid?

     

    I dont understand that at all.

     

    How is it affecting him? Has he got slower? Has he got weaker? Has he lost his technique? Has he lost his brain, since he keep making stupid decisions? What is it exactly?

    Yep. I'm wondering why 'long covid' is now a valid reason for Mane's shit performances despite no evidence. Seems that the more some people keep repeating it, the more it seems to be accepted as true.

     

    The simpler, more straightforward thing is to say he has experienced a natural decline in form this season. Many players usually experience it at some stage in their career. Instead of making excuses for him, our hope should be that he can stop the decline and maintain a good level of consistent form next season.

    He’s clearly not Shite.  He was literally our player of the month in March.  He has hardly put a foot wrong all season.  The midfield didn’t press and didn’t keep the ball and Trent absolutely fucked us with his dickhead defending.  Kabak had a pretty good game and was the better of the two but it is what it is.

    Agree with this.

     

    I think he did as well as we could have expected considering the fact that the majority of our other players were playing quite poorly.

    Oh, man, we're in trouble, from a to z. 

     

    Allison has dropped his standards considerately and looks like a Pepe 2010-doppelganger: every decent shot hits the back of the bet. 

     

    Trent is proving Southgate right, and Klopp is seemingly too proud or naive to protect him. Every opponent of a certain standard is looking for the space behind him as he is slow and can't defend one against one. 

     

    Phillips/Kabak are playing to their standards. It is what it is. 

     

    Robbo is out of steam and has lost the spring in his step. 

     

    Why on earth Klopp went Keita tonight, God only knows. He is not physical enough, doesn't cover enough ground, and when he passes the ball, it looks like he's hitting a basket ball with a golf club. 

     

    And, as Usher has pointed out long time ago, the front three is finished. Let them grow old on someone elses ground. 

     

    This Real team is piss poor, and we were outclassed. 

    Holy shit. This is an unholy pile of knee-jerk nonsense by HolyHank.

    Since the 27 December Salah has scored 4 league goals in 15 games and one of them was a penalty.  This is ignoring that his all round play has largely been an absolute joke as well.

    For someone who later complained about manipulative stats, this was quite a clever way of you using selective stats to minimise Salah's overall contributions. To suit your narrative, you've chosen to ignore goals he scored in the FA cup and Champions League games after Dec 27th.

     

    Yes he went off the boil a bit after a brilliant start to the season but he was still our most dangerous and effective forward during our terrible spell of form.

     

    P.S - Penalties are a valid way of scoring. And we should be happy to have players like Salah who sticks them in with almost a 100% record. Just look at the way City fret regarding who takes penalties for them because their record is awful.
