Making a banner for the parade (big if). This will be useful. Thanks. Did you find @indianscouser?You're welcome. :tongue:
Like I wrote earlier, I think the 'three muskateers' now have a very closely-linked destiny this season. Jordan will play in half of the next 6 games though I reckon.He didn’t get the goal I predicted, but I thought Naby was exceptional today. Fabinho and Wijnaldum both superb as well. Has the makings of a truly elite midfield three.
United winning today helps us as Chelsea will want to keep up with them in the race for top four.Good performance.
Blew any cobwebs away there. Just what was needed.
Keita had a good game, hopefully this midfield trio can play a sequence of games now. Keita and Wijnandum looked like a good blend.
Also matip looked good.
Big games coming up for us now.
Let’s hope Chelsea get something tomorrow...
I love this manLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to MOTD: "We were not happy with the performances from the previous two games and struggled a bit with set-pieces. There were a lot of things we had to improve.
"We have had injuries and fit players who have become ill overnight on the day before a game.
"We have high expectations and today we won in an impressive manner - we had some outstanding performances on the pitch. Goal number three was world-class.
"We wanted to show a reaction. It's out job not only to come through but to really perform and convince."
On Georginio Wijnaldum: "He didn't sleep in the team hotel last night. He had diarrhoea and vomiting two nights earlier so he couldn't come to the team hotel."
On Liverpool's fans: "Supporters get a little bit nervous for all sorts of reasons. That's not a Liverpool thing - it's a football thing."
That's the midfield I've wanted to see all season. Gini was fucking brilliant, and Keita starting to show some form. Bring it fucking on, and c'mon the Chavs tomorrow.
I've been wanting to see that midfield all season as well, and was discussing the other day with a friend about it, after Keita's encouraging last few performances - he's definitely on the up. Also about Salah on the right and Firmino back to spearhead and press high, I was pointing out how we needed that back, and was very happy to see the deployment. Was immediately confident we'd be back to wins (ok, as soon as Allisson saved that Frazer shot, tbh). Like a wish come true when I saw us play! Exactly what I was wishing for, and worked like a charm!Salah motm . Back on the right he sees so much more of the ball and he was an absolute menace all afternoon. That's the way we should be playing now til the end of the season.
And it wasn’t offside! If Howe knew the rules of the game, he’d realise that before opening his gob! Manes arm was slightly ahead of the defender and the rules state that is not offside.Comedy gold from Eddie Howe saying that without a goal that was “half a yard offside,” Bournemouth could have gotten something. Could have been 8-0, lad.
To be fair to me, this recognition was well overdue. I don't want to name them, but I've seen others on here make it for much less (@Scott Jones, @Livvy, @SirBillShankly, etc.) :celebrating:
