Brilliant , brilliant Reds. Another superb controlled performance when it mattered most. Pressure right back on City now for Wednesday night and Utd , smarting after today's embarrassment , should be looking to make amends and stay in contention for top four. What a fuckin' title race this is turning into.
Gave MOTM to Matip. By far his best run of games since he's been at the club and , not for the first time recently , he has even outshone Van Dijk . Hats off to him and I really hope he's still here next year.
Routine in the end, a strange day with the heat and shadow moving across the pitch. Completely hate that, it caused lots of misplaced passes when crossing the divide. Have to go for Mo as MOM thought he was everywhere, nearly scored and won that disputable pen lol
Strong performances all over the pitch. Hard to select between Gini, Mo, Bobby, Hendo, Milly (for the celebration, too), Robby (great running), Becker (key saves). Sean Morrison was big for us today, though.
If I had to sum up last season's team with a word, it would be exhilarating.
If I had to do the same for this season's team, it would be relentless.
We may lack the same sparkle but we just keep rolling over teams by exerting control... having a world-class defence means we can be patient, bide our time and keep playing our game, and our world-class attack means the goals will come in time.
Can only compare it to Rafa's best team of 08/09 which had the same relentless feel, but in terms of quality I think our 18/19 vintage edges it, which also makes it the best Liverpool side I've witnessed in the 23-odd years I've been supporting.
We may not win the title, unfortunately that's out of our hands, but I've no doubt we'll be right in the mix again next season.
That was harder than it should have been, but 2-0 in the end was good enough. I don't know about the Morrison penalty giveaway, he was just trying to swap shirts early, helping Mo to take his off.
3 points is what we needed, 3 points is that we got. Thoroughly professional performance from the boys. Hope Fab is OK. On our way to 97 points. Lets see what destiny has in store for us. Proud of you Redmen. :celebrating:
Another one of those games against lower table teams where we controlled the game, let the opposition tire out, kept our composure, and then went for the kill.
Brilliant opening goal by Gini, got a true connection on the half volley. Mo has learned that refs will never give a penalty if you battle to stay on your feet, so when the defender has two hands on you for a god few secs, have to demonstrate tot eh ref that you are being impeded. Cool penalty again by Milner.
Fab taken off for a possible concussion. Football is really behind the times. When a player is potentially concussed, an extra sub should be allowed. Prevents desperate managers from keeping players on for short term reward.
Three more games, all we can do is stay focussed and try to win them. Two crucial semi finals as well. Nice thing is we have Gini, Milner, Henderson, Fab (hope he’s ok) and Keita for midfield rotation and subs. Really gives us a good engine in the middle.
Well controlled game though that open header for them should have tied the score. Voted Hendo Motm but could have been a load of players, Mane and Wini close behind Hendo for me. I hate it when teams try to keep the score tied then score near the end so i think Cardiff got what they deserved, nothing. After todays games i have zero hopes of Utd getting anything from City but as long as we keep doing the business we'll keep the pressure on them. Now for a well deserved 5 day rest before hopefully a game to really eat into the GD.
