I went with Lallana, because he put a few dangerous passes in and had a really good effort hit the post. Yup that’s about as good as anyone was, and he only played 30 mins.It is the evening after yesterdays remarkable event and I still have not voted a MotM. I probably never will. I don't know who our best player was and I am not going to pretend that I do. But I do think we will see a very different Liverpool next game.
I think we all think the same about Deeney...thug and amoeba... Needs teaching a thing or two, in a dark alley, with a LFC supporting grandma....fu****ing leg breaking thug....The problem with the selection of Lovren - and if it was because he’d be more physical than Matip then it’s a massive mistake from Klopp - is that Troy Deeney wants a physical battle. It’s pretty much the only thing the alehouse cunt has got in his locker. Most of the time he’s winning it, and if he’s also managed to take your Centre Back out of the game then there are acres for the lads buzzing round him to pick up the second ball.
The obvious way to play a brick shit house like Deeney is not to worry about the first ball - he’s not going to get it under control and do something with it - just make sure you get the second.
I bet Deeney couldn’t believe his luck the way Lovren got suckered in every fucking time.
It’s absolutely basic stuff, and I struggle to think that Klopp would be naive enough to fall for it. I suspect it’s more likely that he was forced into a late switch due to Gomez being injured, and Lovren had trained a bit better or something.
Apologies if I’m across a bit angry tonight. I really wanted that record off City. My heart sank as soon as I saw Lovren’s name I’m the team sheet.
I know how you feel too. I have been like this all afternoon. This season's title chase is doing my head in. Thirty years of waiting, it is like waiting for f***ing Godot! I have anxiety about the next EPL match.I know I should just leave it but I'm not really following your line of argument/reasoning?
We were lacklustre against Norwich but still kept it tight. Plus we lost some intensity in the Atletico game after a certain indomitable captain went off. And we’ve missed him since. I firmly believe with him back we’ll be fineI've been critical of the team since the winter break, having barely said a bad word about the side for nearly 18 months or so, but it has not been unjustified. We were lacklustre against Norwich, but terrible against Madrid and very lucky against West Ham. So this result was not a surprise, so much so that I had to stop myself betting against us earlier on today. We have lacked intensity and have been disorganised throughout the team in all 4 games.
No individuals are the sole or primary reason for this. It wasn't Chamberlain against Norwich, or Origi against Atletico, or Keita against West Ham and it wasn't Lovren today. It's incredibly predictable who is going to get the stick when times are tough. It's really convenient to put a sub par performance one player's door, far more preferable than just admitting the team hasn't played well and it makes the solution very obvious, but it hasn't been fair.
So, a great run comes to an end. The best day of the season for some of our rivals. Good for them. For us, it shouldn't matter really. Records are nice to have but they don't mean an awful lot, and can always be beaten. Nobody can take trophies away from us and that's all that counts really. A win at Chelsea would change the mood immediately, but the same is even more true of Atletico. Those are our big games now and I'm hopeful that these disappointing results will light a fire under our lads and bring the best out of them. If that happens today will be forgotten about in no time at all.
What he said. FFS, we’re having the BEST season in history and there’s still misery and complaint and bickering? What the fuck is wrong with people? There’s a line from Douglas Adams which to paraphrase is “Why does this sea bass have to be so fucking good?”. Seems appropriate.I was as pissed off as anyone with the defeat yesterday, but for fucks sake, this is nowhere near threatening the title.
We’re 22 points clear. Get a grip everyone.
Henderson played 80 minutes against Atletico and Norwich played a very defensive game against us.We were lacklustre against Norwich but still kept it tight. Plus we lost some intensity in the Atletico game after a certain indomitable captain went off. And we’ve missed him since. I firmly believe with him back we’ll be fine
That's not the point I was making...the point is however we do it losing yesterday is not the be all and end all.We have ten league games left and I would only accept a win in our next game.
I’m sure that our manager thinks the same way.
