Wow, Great post Sozi
Not read the whole thread but this post has made the most sense out of the 5 pages or so I have read.And yet another game we dominate and don't win.
Not too fussed to be honest. You can see that we are improving. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, what we really need is a poacher who can slot the ball in the back of the onion sack.
But jesus wept, everybody stand back and take a look at things. We are PLAYING so well. So well. Aren't we? I think so. We just aren't scoring. People bleat on about how it's all about results, not performance, but I don't think so. Yeah there are games you need to grind out if you are a top team but at the end of the day, whilst it's disappointing to create chances and not bury them, at least it gives us hope that the structure is right.
For some people to compare how we play now to us under Roy is simply staggering.
And ISMF, you are a very intelligent poster, but I think you are being too hard on Jones. That was a tough shot to save. His positioning wasn't perfect because he had to re-position quickly from the other side. Plus he was blinded by the defender in front of him. Would a top class keeper been able to save that? Maybe. But we all know Brad is not world class. Even Brad knows this. But he is decent enough.
People are saying "roll on January" but think about it. Who is going to be available in January? Quality second tier stuff like Walcott maybe. But certainly nobody of immense status. Bring on the summer window I say.
That time of the month?Mac, I used to follow you on RAWK, then you crossed over here, then vanished only to pop up again. I don't know if it's you, but with your knowledge of LFC it probably is.
You write well, informative and reliable. You did and do, IMO lack a pre-requisite for any LFC fan at least in your writing.
I don't see passion. Loads of information, opinion but very little passion.
Why are we shite? I do not like our style of play. I like variety. This team we have is no way near as effective as a KD and SC team.
75% possession bores me to tears, but with a win at the end I could live with it. Yes, I am not a big fan of Barca so what?
We are shite, includes some of the team, a little of the management and a lot of the owners.
As to you not replying to posts like this, if you don't like them, STFU and move on.
Yeah, Van Persie is the top scorer in the league ... By the way, do you know who is second?But look at United, signing Van Persie has probably got them 10 points this season.
We just need a great striker.
Let's face it, Brads best chance of stopping that shot today was if it had accidentally cannoned into his face.Im in agreement that he couldnt have done much for todays goal. A top top keeper may have faster reactions and been able to get a hand on it but even thats stretching it. Overall for someone who was 3rd choice up until recently hes done ok. No worse than Pepe had been donig at least.
Let's face it, Brads best chance of stopping that shot today was if it had accidentally cannoned into his face.
So you didn't see the slow mow gifs of him being 'out of postion' then????Let's face it, Brads best chance of stopping that shot today was if it had accidentally cannoned into his face.
We are playing with 2 school boys at the final 3rd, surely we will have loads of that kind of decision making.so many schoolboy decisions in the final 3rd showed what a mid table team we are at the moment. this is how lose top players or at the very least not attract any!
This is very true, a good old saying that i have used is 'suck em in then spit em out' this is apparent especially with our style of short passing and in the case of the goal against Newcastle their team tried to win the ball higher up the pitch, for once, by pressing this in turn created space in behind which was utilised by a fantastic ball from Enrique and finished by Suarez.Anyone with an elementary understanding of this style of play would be able to tell you that it's not just about controlling possession with safe side to side passing. Sudden, intelligent vertical balls are a critical component of it, to provide proper variance and threat (as we saw).
I have seen little to no evidence that our players have been instructed to ignore good, intelligent long balls when they are on.
No need for much logic. Just some simple, common sense really. And it does help a fair bit when it comes to sharing experinces and commenting on situations like how Jones faced when Newcastle scored.wait now,the only people that can comment on the game are those that have played it?? i may have been drinking but what the fuck kinda logic is that?,most people on this site don't even go to anfield to watch the fucking games.let alone play it(to a decent level), unless ya count those stupid video games.i know when a keeper fucks up just as i know when a player should hit the fucking target from 12 yards out.gonna be a pretty lonely site if its only people that have played prem league footy that can post.thats assuming you have?
Mate, thats part and parcel of the game. Havent players against us scored cracking goals?No, we didn't deserve anymore from it. That goal from Suarez is a f*cking miracle. Otherwise, it would have been 0-1. Nothing to celebrate or put false hopes up here. There won't be any karma rescuing us in the future.
That team is mediocre, full stop. I expect us to stay around that 12th position during the whole season.
how is the wheather in fantasy land ?Still disappointed with the result but looking at the bright side 1 good buy sorts a lot of our problems. With a top striker up front with Suarez and Stevie/Sterling beside him and Lucas back leaving room for llen/Sahin/Shelvey to help out in attack and i can see the goals flying in. Going to be a long wait till January though
