Oz…you’ve spent all week predicting doom and gloom. this afternoon we were superb. Fabinho was my mom. ..came of age as a Liverpool player today. Clyne was brilliantly solid considering he’s been awol for a year or so, Bobby had his best game of the season, Gini was everywhere, and then there’s Shaq – what a man!
You really should have more faith in your team, man! We really do have a side here, maybe not quite as good as City’s, but a damn fine side nevertheless. If you don’t have faith now, I swear to God you never will!!16th December 2018 at 8:16 pm #29507
Mind you, how bad were United? No fight, no passion and no answer to our pressing. If the manager has his £90m player on the bench and doesn’t use him when he has to change the game, he never will. I thought United would give us more of a game and at least show some balls. I’m sorry, I’m not meaning to gloat, but they were spineless today and truly the players must want Mourinho sacked to play like that in a game like that16th December 2018 at 10:45 pm #29508Oz YobParticipant26 pts
HH, not doom and gloom mate, just the usual moanino wrecking our vibe. Haven’t seen the game but absolutely chuffed with the result. From what I’m reading we pretty much dominated all over the pitch & got what we deserved. Reading moanino saying De gea would’ve saved the goals if not for the deflection but didn’t mention their goal was from a keeper shocker, otherwise they didn’t really look like scoring from what I can gather.
As for having faith mate, I am believing that we have a steel about us that we haven’t had for many moons & we still possess enough in attack to be competitive v anyone. That said I do believe we do not quite have the quality in depth of c$ty & fully expect them to win the EPL with games to spare. Hopefully we will push them most of the way though.16th December 2018 at 10:52 pm #29510
Yeah, my money would still be on City too! I just want to hear you big up our team a bit. We are good, believe me! Unless it’s just superstition of course!😂😂 best balanced Liverpool side for a generation. Even Sean has become more positive. You’re my next project!17th December 2018 at 1:06 am #29514AnonymousInactive366 pts
LOL agree with it all. I think credit has to go to us for not allowing Utd to play though, it wasnt just that they didnt turn up because they tried to face us early on but they got “schooled”. Jose tried to kill the game then but we weren’t having it.
I think before we were like the waves battering the shore in a storm. Now , we’re like the tide. Fabinho was MoTM alright and I was disappointed to see that Shaqiri got it. Look, huge credit to Shaq for his impact. It was brilliant but Fabinho broke. he shut them down time after time and he quickly set things in motion then. His assist for the first was immense. They only rated him a 7.. What game were they watching. He was at least an 8, I think 8.5 though.17th December 2018 at 1:07 am #29515AnonymousInactive366 pts
As for the belief.. it builds over time. it’s certainly building for me but I’m not mentioning anything about the title, just glad that we are where we are.17th December 2018 at 4:07 am #29517Oz YobParticipant26 pts
LOL I’m getting there brother, I’m just about round the corner of belief & im looking at the home straight. We are definitely a very good side.
I’ll tell u where my reluctance to big us up comes from. That yr of the SG slip & how we crumbled at the last hurdle, I seen a young fella down the street with a Liverpool shirt on & I said “great shirt young fella”. His dad said “yeah he doesn’t wear it much, he’s a bit nervous or something”. I said “ mate we are going to win the title in a couple of weeks”. I was certain that was it, I was looking into buying flights & was heading over to celebrate in that awesome city. Damn I was p***** when we crumbled. I haven’t really had much confidence in us winning anything major since. I just haven’t thought we had the grit to do it. I’m getting closer now but unfortunately whilst we have our best squad & manager in a long time, we have the moneybags to compete with & they not only have a top manager, they have quality in depth no one else could dream of.17th December 2018 at 6:39 am #29518MoosParticipant31 pts
As long as Henderson does not start you guys will do well17th December 2018 at 7:45 am #29520AnonymousInactive366 pts
We bottled it in 13/14 alright and even getting the same chance this time around is going to be 5 times more difficult. The City we’re up against are the best ever PL side. Each win echoes “we’re not going away” to them though and it’s pressure that they didn’t have last season. Everyone knew where the title was going at this time a year ago. before I had us around 15% chance of winning the title. I think it’s fair to upgrade that to 25%. So, we’re still a huge way off even being level with them in my mind but we took more shots against Utd than any other team (including City) has taken, in any PL game so far this season.
Our midfield is starting to take shape and with that, the attack comes good. We’re slowly clicking into place. We’re into the KO’s of the CL too, so there’s a lot to be optimistic about. We just have to be careful to not get too cocky this time. The players have to keep their eye on the ball.
We’ve got an improving Wolves now next and it’s an away match. They have some real quality in that side and they too appear to be clicking, so we’re going to really have our hands full. Maybe this is the game where we finally lose? I just hope we’re not complacent after the few “tough” games.
But ya Aussie, Don’t worry about being cautious man, just try to enjoy the ride. The day will come when Klopp steps downa nd we most likely step down in quality.17th December 2018 at 8:04 am #29521sean the sailorParticipant344 pts
I’ll n bet get carried away. Love everything about our current set up but we need to win something
My worry is we are in the best shape in years but may still not win anything as the competitions are just so difficult to win.
We are hitting form now. Signings are coming up good. Into cl last 16 abd tip of table so fantastic win for us17th December 2018 at 8:13 am #29522MoosParticipant31 pts
City will win it they still easy the best squad by far.17th December 2018 at 8:51 am #29525
Without wishing to take anything away from this Liverpool performance which was impressive it has to be balanced against how woefully awful United were, sometimes a half decent United performance pops ups but the norm currently are performances like this.
There has to be a parting of the ways with Mourinho his cycle is three years and he hit the wall earlier than that at United but the task was too big for him and even if Pep were to take over there is a mountain to climb at United.17th December 2018 at 9:35 am #29526sean the sailorParticipant344 pts
Nine that’s all I keep hearing
Napoli were woeful. Burnley, bournemouth, utd were woeful
We were very good and did let any of these play. Pressing hard abd creating loads of chances. We make these teams look poor when we play like this
Utd aren’t as bad as people make out some times. They can play some good stuff
They can look like a team devoid of ideas and Jose still doesn’t know his team but we dominated with and without the balk yday.
We are playing well now but I still won’t get carried away. So long to go.17th December 2018 at 9:43 am #29527
Sean, as I said in my post taking nothing away from Liverpool who were impressive.17th December 2018 at 9:48 am #29528
….. If Liverpool can stick with City and are still there with 6 games to go they’ve got a real chance and at least unlike last season we currently have a proper title race Sean which is good for the PL.17th December 2018 at 10:26 am #29534
Actually double H,after the equaliser,I thought we might get a draw,even had a ray of hope of nicking it all but for the 2 deflections.17th December 2018 at 3:32 pm #29579
But Mav, deflected goals or not, there was only one good team out there yesterday, and it wasn’t United. 3-1 scoreline was immensely flattering to United.17th December 2018 at 3:42 pm #29580
Yes m8,Liverpool played better,they were the home team! But after the equaliser United upped their game and after that played decent football for a while.United restricted Liverpool to long-range shots from the like of Lovren and VVD!17th December 2018 at 5:09 pm #29582
Goals change games Liverpool rightfully won the game but after United equalised it was a much more even game until Liverpool went ahead again.
