Shearer mentioned both were penalties and VAR got them wrong.Hassenhutl is bleating about the penalty they didn’t get and saying “you need brave referees at Anfield”. Sky are all over that comment, so why didn’t they counter that by pointing out that we had a stonewall penalty denied in the 1st half by the very same referee?? It’s just shit journalism from Sky, who just want a headline. I guarantee the next referee at Anfield will want to prove how ‘brave’ he is.
Fairly certain he thought VAR was going to wipe the goal away. The second he put it in he looked at the linesman and did the same gesture. He thought it was offside.
But VAR did what it was supposed to do. It's the rules that are wrong*.Shearer mentioned both were penalties and VAR got them wrong.
On another topic, Mo seems to pass more since the Wolves game or is it just me. Against Hammers and Saints, his attempted assists made him a more dangerous player imo. His pass to Naby should have resulted in a goal. Long may it continue.
Pete showed them with his videos where the spaces were in Southampton's defence and Jürgen where we had to tighten ours and the other coaches talked them through the mental and fitness sides. Pep and Andi were probably loudest.Really want to hear what Klopp said to the boys at half time..
What I want to know is, why can't Klopp give his half time team talk before the first half kicks off?Really want to hear what Klopp said to the boys at half time..
That's how I saw it. Both were penalties although the Ings one was only really apparent when you saw the replay. In real time I thought he had lost his balance after the initial tackle but it's clear that Fabinho has another nibble at him and takes him downAs for the two penalty shouts, I think that if the first is given, then so is the second. However, if the first penalty had been given, Long would have been sent off for the foul on Bob and Soton would have been down to 10 men for over 60 minutes. So it would have unlikely that Ings could have got into the position to be tripped by Fab (after standing on Fab's foot and pushing him over).
Why Ali wasn't penalised for picking up Robbo's backpass, I don't know, other than the officials might not have been sure whether Ings made slight contact on the ball.
This is the best you have seen. The best you and me ever will see.Noone can top PERFECTION bar this lot in RED!!!
Mentality Monsters is how history should remembers these Immortals!!!!
I have sometimes been a lone voice in here defending referees but yesterday’s performance was a proper shocker by the referee and the people monitoring the VAR. Two blatant penalties missed even with VAR assistance. Astonishing to still see that level of incompetent officiating these days.
We also have a better GD, which could get bigger should Spurs beat them today.We might be 22 points ahead, but remember, ManC still have a game in hand!
Whisper it quietly but Jurgen has block booked fifty statics at the Happy Times caravan park in Towyn for the squad, staff and their families. It’s double savings because of the bulk booking and it’s also out of season. There’ll be no distractions either as the on site social club doesn’ Open in the off season.I think the entire squad is having a week off where they do what they want go away as family. Then back to normal training preparing for Norwich.
While I agree, there is always a place to improve you also have to remember, we've only dropped points once this season - its literally unprecedented.Great result eventually but we should notoverlook how poor we looked first half. We need to be starting games more strongly if not in an attacking sense at least from a defensive point of view. We were torn apart at time and could have been behind at half time. As ever though we pulled out something special in the second half.
As regards to Taki, yes he should have buried that effort but Fabinho and Keita etc took a really long time to bed in so I would be happy enough with his efforts.Not sure why Ox is always first to come off . For me Gini had another quiet game. Good to see Keita looking sharp again but Taki is still struggling to make a big impression.
I took it to mean that he didn’t think it was his best of efforts and he wanted to do better with the shot.
Okie dokes, If Mo isn’t happy with it we’ll chalk it off and call it 3-0. But Ox’s goal was a great build up and finish so I’ll give him double for that and put it back to 4-0.I took it to mean that he didn’t think it was his best of efforts and he wanted to do better with the shot.
almost like a golfer rimming around before it drops and not was disappointing that he didn’t hit it dead center
So, if we win the next 6 games and then we can declare it right?Spuds have just beaten City so we are now 22 points clear with 13 games left. I make that a 7 game cock-up buffer. To put that another way we could lose 7 times as many league games as we have since the beginning of last year and still be on top.
