On a side note: Well done to the the Liverpool staff and Mignolet who clearly did their homework to know that Walters always goes for bottom left on penos. Amazing their chosen penalty taker is that predictable. Adam probably would have buried that. Hughes should probably never let Walters take penalties again.
I know we won, but it was nerve racking, we were saved by our goalie. We should have got another goal as a safety net against Stoke. They were very good but we were good too and we were up against a fabulous goal keeper. At times I thought we were not ruthless enough but a win is a win and this is a great confidence booster for us.
Christ, that was some finish. What was Agger thinking with the penalty? Mignolet, just fantastic. Sturridge lasted a full 90 mins. Overall, a great start for us. We should have won by about 4 but we got through it and got the 3 points. That's all that matters.
My heart can't take that. Just so happy with the 3 pts. Was waiting for the almost inevitable equaliser. It once again shows that you have to finish teams off because they will always get a couple of chances. For once it wasn't one of those days. For a long time the team showed that they have the quality to challenge for top 4 but that nervy 15-20 minutes at the end if its repeated will cost us points during the season.
For now, the season is up and running with a win. Hopefully 1 or 2 more signings to come and I think all the new lads did well. Coutinho is starting to continuing to look like an absolute steal at 8.5m.
