SUPER Champions of Europe VI
- Jul 2, 2006
Totally dominated and deservedly won 3-1, score didn't flatter us at all in my opinion. I never felt we'd concede after their first goal, and a goal for us always felt like coming, barring a brief spell where we reverted to shooting from distance. But the solution was on the bench and came at the right time to change the game and give it an extra push! Klopp's changes were spot on, with Henderson adding to midfield control and pressure after 3-1.
What a goal and assist by Mane, my MOTM! Absolute boss of an off the ball movement, chests it down and blasts it in before hitting the ground for his goal, and absolute beast of a head on dribble for his assist! Made the two first goals happen, which won us the game! Such a reaction after his Napoli misses!!!
Top performance by Fabinho, outstanding cameo by brace-scoring Shaq who looked like he was possessed! Great game by Robertson, solid game at the back for Clyne (without criticising him, because he offered a very safe shift when we needed it, I really missed TAA's forward surges, but thankfully we didn't need them in the end).
Finally beaten Utd after 5 years in the league, a great hoodoo to break and a great summing up of a great week!
So happy today!
Cheers mate, I'm always reading the posts here and I'm well, but being too awfully distracted by work to find the time to post properly and regularly... hope this can change soon! What a team we have built and what an exciting era! Hope trophies will reflect our level soon! I really don't want to miss sharing the excitement with the amazing Liverpool community here!Glad to see you back on the board, hope you have been well
They are 8 points behind 5th with a 14 goal difference. 4th is gone for them and had Arsenal not fucked up against Southampton, 5th would be out of the question as well.Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports asked if he can "fix" their current situation: "What do you mean by fix? Win the title? Of course not.
"We can still finish fourth. It's not easy. For sure we are going to finish in the top six. Best we can get is fourth. Now we look to the fifth and then later the fourth."
He’s delusional. He’s just outdated. He simply doesn’t know what hit him. Long may he stay.Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports: "They are the strong team, but it's hard to concede two goals in the moment we conceded and the way the goals happened.
"Our difficult moment was the first 20 minutes. We couldn't cope with their fantastic intensity and pressing, but then we were quite calm and it was controlled.
"They became really frustrated when their centre-backs came forwards and fired shots into the stands - that was the period when it was more in control.
"There were two easy goals for Shaqiri and because of the deflections there was no chance.
"If you speak about fortunate you speak about their second and third goals."
