The offside is not in this part of the play. There is no offside in the above clip.

The offside that was called, was one or two passes previous, where the Shrew winger comes back from an offside position. It was close, but offside was correct.
For some reason the wrong VAR sequence keeps popping up. I watched the FULL VAR sequence on ESPN+ this morning, and the lines were clearly drawn for the two passes previously where the Shrews guy attempts to come back from an offside position but fails to get back before the ball is kicked to him. VAR will always check the entire sequence of play upon initial review. That is the issue, many media outlets are only putting the initial VAR review which is ALWAYS a full length view of the play prior to going to the line drawing escapade. They are just trying to make something fit a narrative that sells clicks.
Right. Thanks for that. It doesn't help when you're not shown the whole picture. The VAR sequence shown on the beeb and LFCTV is as I've posted; and the LFCTV commentators said it was Whalley, who was offside.
Hey Ho.
So it was actually the Shrews number 3, Golbourne, playing the ball after coming back from an offside position.

I am starting to get a bit pissed off with the narrative that Klopp has been vindicated by last night's result. He hasn't been. He didn't do this because he though his U23s would win. He did it because it was the right thing to do. Therefore the result is a bonus, not the metric by which Klopp's decision should be judged.

Exactly
And his team selection vs Chelsea wont be decided by anything other than his choosing. No washed up half baked pundit will effect that choice.

some more after game chat!

forgot to mention Pedro in my post. I thought he did an excellent shift. He was the calming influence in midfield and helped the younger lads throughout the 90 minutes.
My one fear prior to the game was the physicality of the Shrewsbury side, apart from a tasty elbow on Curtis and another robust challenge on Williams that never materialised.
Anyway, well done to the youngsters!

:LOL: you plonker! I thought I was bad! You would have been proud of our kids. They were brilliant with the passing and all. The full house Anfield crowd were magnificent cheering them and giving them them all the applause at the end.
I know!!!
I'm fuming that I missed it!!
This is my 2nd game missed in the last 3 years.
I got a decent highlight of the game via youtube. Jones elliot and Williams are the future for sure. Chirivela is very very good but I dont know if he will stay here.
Really exciting prospects.
This was our youngest team ever to win a senior game!
We are very proud of the kids and they carry on our incredible anfield record.
And congratulations to Jones (not @Scott Jones ) for becoming the youngest ever captain to lead a senior team!!

It seems to me that Critchley's next career move is just as likely to be as upwards as a lot of his players'. I don't think there's going to be much discussion about who succeeds him when he does leave. That James Milner trained with the U-23s and was otherwise involved in their game prep was no accident.

unfortunately I missed the game, but managed to see the highlights along with the full game a day later.
really delighted with the youngsters. They showcased what LFC are about! I cannot vote MOTM because I think they all deserve it. One very noticable fact is they played like the senior team with their passing and movement. Tremendous energy levels and the exuberance of youth, nd as pointed out by a couple of posters, a couple of them looked like 'fresh faced kids'.
delighted by their attitude and how happy I am to be a supporter of this wonderful football club.

Physically he looks so much more competent now than when he first started getting games a few years ago. He's always been talented, but looked like a kid playing a man's game. Those extra years have really helped him blossom.

That goes from 0 to 100 real quick.

No doubt the producer said into their earpiece that they were boring the life out of everyone.
No doubt.
It's good to remind everyone that TV spots for sports shows NEED to have back and forth and preferably people getting very frustrated with one another. It's common to "force" disagreements by telling one person they will take "side a" and the other will take "side b".
Almost to a person the pundits have been fine with Klopp giving the players off, so they have to go to whether Klopp should have been there or not.
I don't fuss about these things at all.

(oops, sorry I didn't realize this original post on the pundits fussing with one another had so many posts following from yesterday until now.... nothing to see here)

Feck me, that Eddie Hitler from ‘Bottom’ is much more level headed when he doesn’t have that mad twat Richie Richard winding him up.

I know Klopp and the first teamers need a bit of time off before the big end of season push.
However, i'm kinda annoyed at this winter break already, ...its only mid day on a Friday :-(

...does anyone have a time machine I can use to take myself forward a week or so?

Sitting down for first time since game. We had a great time and I was really proud of the way the youngsters played. It was one of those games that could have gone either way. Gone and never talked about again or, one of those games that will be talked about for many yeays to come. I’m so chuffed we made decision to go, it was a top nigh . (A bit like Arsenal in the league cup earlier this season.) With that in mind, we had the usual 120 mile journey home. But, we stayed until the end of the spontaneous lap of honour by the boys. It was a bit of an emotional time and I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed that the stadium was almost empty by the time they had got round. Bit of a shame that. Other odd observation from the night was we got talking about probably having a closer affinity to the boys teams in future. I think I will. We then got on to how far do you go. And that included our womens team. Should we automatically support the ladies? Without question? I have to admit, the ladies in not on my radar. I am a bit of a dinosaur I suppose. But even so , I dont have any affinity to to the ladies team. Indeed, I couldn’t even mame a player. Am I wrong for not making effort?

Can't fault your optimism, but I think 4 goals per game is a bit much to ask for the rest of the season. :ROFLMAO:
I think that’s not just league footy he’s referring to.

Throw a few cup games in..... still a massive task though.
