It is so bizarre to see us go from the devastating attack we had last year to being a side with no attacking identity at all.

Kicking the ball after the whistle had been blown.

It's a fair yellow.

Not after the way Oliver has refereed this match its not ..... its a joke! Raking down the calf with studs under referees nose - no yellow, kick ball after whistle - yellow! Applying rules selectively.

Nothing fair about that all ..... !

Oliver has single-handedly kept them in this match and that’s not his job.

So lackadaisical with the final pass today. Frustrating to watch time and time again. Simple 5 yard slide balls planted straight at the defender constantly.

We're consciously being more cautious. You dont develop the defensively solidity we have this season by accident.

In the entirety of the PL, only Everton have failed to score in their first five games according to the commentators. A record they can be proud of!

Seem to be back to Kenny’s second spell lethargy again. Odd, very much out of charachter for us. Will take a 1 goal with though, happy as a pig in shit when we win badly.

My thinking was more about controlling the midfield.

I like Shaqiri but I see him almost as a luxury player. He offers next to nothing defensively but is capable of 2 or 3 world class moments in a game (fantastic pass or goal)

He has been getting back and helping Gomez with the defending today and ran the 3rd most. He is a luxury player but we still need to try him and some others out and see if they can do the job.

The contrast is strange though.
A part of me wants to say we have not yet found the right balance as its causing us to make harder work of many games than we probably should. But we're 5 mins from going level on points at the top of the league after a quarter of a season.

Awful decision from Bobby. Shaq completely unmarked and he goes to Mo instead. I don't often say this, but it's been a really disappointing display from every Liverpool player this entire second half.

We haven't scored four goals since August...grinding out results, passing poorly and off the pace and it's not pretty... don't like it much - not complaining about winning but this one should have been killed off....
