In Klopp we trust
- Jun 11, 2018
I still think we are a forward short of winning the league.
Bringing on Sturridge was so depressing.

Fair point. This shouldn't happen.
THANK YOU ! I was beginning to think I'd imagined that !Well, that game could've gone either way. Small margins.
We need to use this as motivation to go on another run. It's tight again at the top, especially with Spurs clsoing in as well. Just a shame we couldn't keep it to a draw, after the excellent team move for the equaliser.
Aguero - tired to cheat to fall for a penalty, and got lucky the ball ended up at his feet with Dejan faffing about.
The problem with Lovren is very simple. He is an excellent defender, but he is consistently prone to lapses in concentration or making errors. He then typically compounds those errors with more errors as he tries to atone for his earlier one. So what is a simple error which happens turns into a head-gone very poor performance and he becomes a liability. Case point being pulled v's Spurs.He played the last 4 games and we won. So he was part of the run. Many other players would be lucky they didn't cost us one way or the other in many games.
I am not defending Lovren for his game yesterday, but do we have someone who would come in and play as 3rd/ 4th choice CB behind Gomez and VVD and perform at their level? I would be open to that, but getting some one like that isn't going to be easy.
Agreed, the only other thing I would add is his mouth. He talks too much, says something to the press and is always caught out by it in the very next game.The problem with Lovren is very simple.

In games against the very best they will be won/lost on the finest of margins and in Lovren we have a player who can unfortunately provide one (or even more) negative margins at any given time. Typically in the higher pressure games as well.
Now Lovren has had good performances v's the top teams, as I said earlier his ability/talent isn't in question, but what set's him apart from a player like Van Dijk is that once a mistake is made he allows it to consume him during that match, the truly top players don't. They move on, they relax, they forget. Gomez is similar he has made mistakes but never let it be a lasting effect.
It's probably co-incidence but the poor judgement i.e. ego comments before games also feed into an image probably worse than reality.
It's just unfortunate we had Matip and Gomez injured, but 4 points clear and them coming back from injury.
He doesn’t stop and think, plays with emotion to fuel his game. Whenever the first thing he did was an error, it tends to continue and his error are mostly judgement on when to pounce and when to hold his position. Same goes for his mouth. So what does that tell us?Agreed, the only other thing I would add is his mouth. He talks too much, says something to the press and is always caught out by it in the very next game.
Its become the curse of Lovren
Absolutely spot on. The whole fucking country wants these vile cunts to win it over us and that just shows me how we are perceive.p.s. We must win the league.. I can't stand the media bias to City, it was nauseating how much everyone wanted them to win. Look at the papers this morning.
Like everyone has forgot their entire fucking success is built on a country's wealth. They would be nowhere without it. Fucking twats.
We have literally built our self back up with self-sustainability, and amazing manager and a transfer strategy envied and copied around Europe. We should be the ones everyone wants to win to show the beautiful game once more, not the rich mans play thing cheat mode.
Moving on from last nights narrow defeat, I think we should be a little bit concerned at the attitude of Sadio Mane. He has been subbed in the last two games and each time came off looking like he was told to go his room. On the pitch he can be sublime and has scored some of our best goals but this feels like he's being tapped up or not happy to live in the shadow of Mo. Maybe needs to appreciated a bit more by the fans....? These fellas have big egos and we need him at his best if we are to win this league. Wether he stays or goes it won't be until the end of the season, in the meantime, lets show him some love!....(or make up new song for him?)
Yes, Ive noticed how fans of lots of other clubs would prefer the oil cheats won the title over us. Would I want everton to win the title if we couldnt, dont think so! But to respond to one of your points, the rest of the country sees us as even more vile c**ts than city or chelsea.Absolutely spot on. The whole fucking country wants these vile cunts to win it over us and that just shows me how we are perceive.
Every man and his dog wants a clearly corrupt club that flouts the rules to win the title over a club that bends over backwards to do things the right way. They want a club that is built on the blood money of an oppresive, human rights abusing regime to win it.
It fucking sickens me. People on here like to say I'm paranoid because of my views but when you read some of the shite being spouted it's not a great stretch of the imagination to think these cunts running the game would do just about anything to stop us winning it.
Wonder if a referee who didn't live in Manchester would have sent Kompany off?
I wasn’t referring to you and I’m pretty sure that any real fans with decades of support aren’t calling our players shit, ‘diabolical fuckers’ etcHmmm... I didn't call them shit, as such, but they're not that great as a combination IMHO. And I think you will find that Gini, Henderson and Milner haven't themselves gotten us to where we are all by their lonesome as an all conquering, fear inspiring midfield that flattens the opposition week in, week out. The squad has done that of which they are a part.
Telling fellow Reds to go do one and support United is more than just a touch offensive given that most of us here have decades of support behind us through good times and bad. Have a word, eh?
Do yourselves a favour boys and girls, ignore the media especially Skysports. They are Manchester biased and always have been.
Forget about last nights game and look at the table in isolation, top by 4 with 1 defeat in 21. That would have looked impossible at the start of the season. We lost by the odd goal and by less than the width of my little finger against the best side the league has ever seen. Perspective is needed.
It's worse than that Ed. Ederson deliberately raised his leg to catch Mané, bringing him down and preventing him going for the rebound. Definite pen in my opinion.Yeah, I watched it over and over again, thinking at first the keeper may have had a touch of the ball. He didn't and his trailing leg tripped Mane. Not a single pundit spoke of that foul, instead, harping on the "millimetres" moment. It's a damn foul and we should be given a penalty, end of.
I agree with your comments. But another factor is the ‘anti scouser’ syndrome which exists throughout the rest of the country. People might say I’m over sensitive or paranoid, but this dislike of ‘scousers’ does exist, I’ve experienced it on several occasions, usually on holiday.Yes, Ive noticed how fans of lots of other clubs would prefer the oil cheats won the title over us.

I think there are 2 main reasons why other fans hate us so much: First, is we are everyone's favourite pantomime villan. From Heysel to Suarez, whoever can forget Jon Champion's comment "There's the work of a cheat" when scoring against Mansfield in the cup, the botched van Dijk transfer and the disgraceful scenes over city's coach at last season's CL home game.
Second is people just enjoy stuffing this 'never won the PL' and last won the league in 1990 in our faces. They think we are self entitled and shouldnt support the team so much. Whenever we celebrate victory, we are 'shooting our mouths off about winning the league'! At the start of every season, you get mainly the mancs and chelsea fans claiming we say 'It's our year!' something Ive never heard any red say.
As for kompany's tackle, I always believed refs had instructions that a two footed lunge where both feet are off the ground was an instant red card offence. Taylor bottled the decision last night because Riley at the PGMOL put him in a no win position reffing this game.
Brighton is now massive we need to bounce back and fast.Still slightly shell shocked at the score.. A game of... if only Mo had touched the ball....if only Kompany was sent walking and Fernandinho...but we are still top of the league, with a 4 point advantage...next game (pl) a must win....keep up momentum.... As for now...I think l need tea and chocolate....
How did kompany get away with this?The other incident I am not too happy about is Kompany's tackle. Eric Baily made the same tackle the night before and was given a straight red, exactly the same and to top it off, Kompany was the last man.
