Agreed, I really like the way this Aspas guy plays, he is so good.

I'm really enjoying this match. Some great movement against a good team.

I'm enjoying the match too, this is the first time I have seen Aspas properly as I have missed nearly all the pre-season games but hes looking good.

I do think Olympiakos are playing terribly though.

I just love Sterling's enthusiasm
Me too, he seems so invigorated and rearing to go. He's incredibly fast in his sprinting.

shocking miss but what a ball by SG


Lucas is having a good game, as is Aspas, Sterling and Glenda

Sterling is showing excellent vision a number of times now. Cross field oases, flicks and reverse balls. Impressed

Most surprised so far was Aspas and Allen.The first showed great touch while Allen made really good running when he's relieved from defensive duty

Agger seems to have had an average game so far.
He's not had to do any defending. Unless he scores in this I would expect him to be quiet in this kind of match, where I would expect Coutinho to shine.

decent game, allen has been a bit of a let down, losing the ball in silly places and giving away too many fouls. Coutinho looks bright when he has got it and sterling has done very well. Aspas has been excellent he needs to keep that sort of performance up

Who's this new fella in white boots? New signings? Judging by his finishing so far, thing probably won't work out for him here.

Seeing the footage of the hodge and houllier there... Is Kenny or rafa there?...

Tipping rafa, even if invited, would have been too busy studying a reserve fixture from the eastern third division Honduras league or something.....

Very promising performance in the first half, especially for Aspas. His movement and tactical awareness is just excellent.

I think the first half has been all Aspas & Sterling. I am dissapointed with Coutinho played out wide. Seems to have little to do. Stevie has bossed the midfield. Glen has had a decent game. Toure & Agger have had little to do. Allen the goal scorer has been all action with a goal to show.

Wonder what sort of reception Suarez will get. Hope that article yesterday won't have stirred up anyone in the ground.

Allen has played well. Yeah he should have a hat trick but he's playing very well otherwise. Getting forward and linking up play. Aspas has shown very good movement. Overall quite happy. We've dominated and dealt with anything the opposition can throw at us

Keep it up

Got a friendly against arsenal coming up just after this

Think olympiakos are a little overawed here. Could have been more clinical but a decent half of football

Also feel Allen may be instructed to find an extra string to his bow. Got a goal but may take a bit more practice

Aspas, not a 20 a season type but looks a useful squad man. Some nice turns and a good assist

Just hope downing doesn't obstruct sterlings development next year...he looks like the player we saw early last season

Aspas has created 3 chances already including an assist.

Allen's movement has been exceptional!

Good to see this!
