@Alright Now what a lovely post! I got goosebumps reading it!!
So happy for you mate!! You are the lucky charm for us!! I reckon you stay put till may!! We want that 19th!! This was by far the best game of this season!!
Slight mishandle by Alisson, and then as he brought it down the ball came out off his knee. He was gutted with himself at the time, judging by his expression, but the team responded well and got the right result. On the balance of play we could easily have scored 5+. Man Utd were well outclassed and all of their fans know it.
Alisson is a fantastic keeper. I'm not 100% sure he's the best in the world, but I can't think of anyone I'd swap him for, which means that at the least he's in the conversation. In his short time here he is already WAY in credit in the bank with us. He is a rock back there and adds so much confidence. He has pulled off some incredible saves and we are at least several points ahead of where we might have been without him, not to mention in the last 16 in the CL.
If you are going to make a rare mistake, I'm fine if it falls during a 3-1 win!
I was almost able to count the teeth of Owen. He was full on laughing / giggling during the post match interviews. Not sure whats that all about. And he also suggested he doesn't see how manu can improve if there is no change and he was indirectly telling that Mou should be fired multiple times.
This is glorious. Read it in a report of yesterday's game criticising what a bad job Jose has done...
Liverpool fielded some wildly expensive talent, but on Sunday they also had three players bought from relegated teams: one scored twice (Xherdan Shaqiri), one was singled out for praise by Mourinho himself (Andrew Robertson) and one helped run the midfield that so outplayed United (Gini Wijnaldum).
In total the three of them cost about £5 million less than United paid for Fred this summer.Fred was nowhere to be seen this weekend, and according to the manager, apparently can't be trusted to start until the defence Mourinho put together is tighter.
This is something we are going to have to live with when we have a very safe pair of hands tending our goal, defenders expect the keeper to not mess up. Even Van Dijk was so confident that Alisson would just hold on to that ball that he took a step away from Alisson instead of covering from spillage.
You posted this earlier, so I went back and watched the replay, and did not see that at all. Lovren was 1v1 with Lukaku, and played the passing lane so that he couldn’t get a pass through on goal. He played him wide, pinched him to the end line, and blocked any cross back toward the 18, forcing him to go directly to the keeper. The cross was hardly powered, should have been easily handled by Alisson.
Lovren is prone to a boneheaded play here and there, but he played this just fine. If anyone other than Becker should be tasked, it is Keïta, who didn’t stay with Lingard, allowing him to get the rebound. Lovren put nary a foot wrong all day, and should be getting praised after coming back from a concussion. He was an integral part of an awesome team effort.
Would of posted last night but was very, very drunk. Great result could of won by a cricket score. Fabinho was just superb forget the majestic pass for the first goal, we won everything, every pass he did was forward (might of passed back or sideways but to be honest can't remember seeing that). Robertson is the best LB not just the league but in Europe on current form the lad is a beast and a half.
United were shocking and just couldn't compete and what can we say about Shaq, we finally got our new super Sub and the lad is clearly loving life with us. Top of the league and we bloody deserve to be.
Is there any way we can pin some of the blame on Henderson and Moreno too?
Just having a laugh at the expense of a couple of others who get the blame for stuff, and while others might have done better to stop the phase of play from developing, that has to go down as Alisson's error.
Usual caveats apply though. He's a suave, handsome fella, and already massively in credit based on his short time so far at Liverpool. There's a strong case to be made for him being the best in the world, and at the worst, he's in the conversation. We're all made up we've got him. But he still mishandled it and brought it down onto his knee, and it popped out to that rat Lingard, who spawned it in.
So long as Ed Woodword and Pogba are in place undermining the manager (this is not all down to Mourinho), United have got no chance. Both need to go. United must be wishing they could tempt David Gill to come back.
Hughes? Pardew? I'm sure there must be loads more has beens suitable for a mid table team. If he was going to get sacked I'm delighted it was after he played us, that will really piss him off, although I'm sure the £25m compensation will help. Wonder where else there is a really rich club that normally dominates their league? Maybe next stop China!
