    Draw was a fair result IMO, Chelsea had the Fortune with the Will I An Goal but they looked dangerous on the Counter in the First half and it was Mignolet who was the busier Keeper in that period. Klopp I think has to shoulder the blame for His starting Eleven, Mane and Firmino on the bench didn’t seem the right option and then Not to bring either on until the 88th Minute didn’t sit right with anyone. Salah again was superb for Us and what a Buy He’s turned out to be, Also would like to single out Azpilicutea for Chelsea who was an absolute rock for them, Yes it may be Two points dropped but at least it wasn’t a defeat.

    Chelsea had so many chances but Morata is a Torres clone lloses the ball at his feet too often. Conte should have started with a better attacking 11.

    Taxi, your usual fair and balanced assesment. I would have been disappointed to have come away with nothing from that game. I thought both Salah and Azpiluqueta were both candidates for MOM with Hazard not far behind. Salah was fabulous a major mistake by Chelsea alongside the De Bruyne error in letting him go.

    You make a good point about the atmosphere at Anfield but it’s not just a Liverpool problem though all of the top PL clubs are affected by the advent of the tourist fans and the once in a lifetime fans at games now.

    At the Bridge you will see tourist fans coming out of the club shop from Japan and China etc etc completely togged out in all new Chelsea gear with multiple scarves around their necks who can’t join in the songs and chants that contribute to the atmosphere because the majority don’t speak enough English and or don’t know the words to join in.

    It’s the price we all pay for the PL being a global brand and attracting major overseas companies to our club’s to be shirt sponsors or the official club Cornflakes sponsor etc etc.? Cheers 999

    Reckon 1-1 was reasonable to both sides, no idea why Herr Brenda left the Mane Man on the bench for this, and then only gave him 5 minutes… is the hamstring still bothering him? After dropping points against the Baggies (soft as shit goal to give away and then they just sat with 11 men behind the ball!), hoping for another draw between Burnley and the Goon Show this afternoon.

    Pity YooUtd fluked/jammed/cheated their way to 3 points…

    Chucky, it felt like a kick in the guts for us. A win would have been really nice, but it now seems to be the norm against the better sides that as soon as we score first, at some point or at the death of the game, we’re going to concede.

    At Anfield too, we’re dropping points against the bigger teams above us, and economically, that’s not good enough. And yep, as mentioned last night, the atmosphere is just awful. How can the players be gee-d up if the supporters don’t even get behind them?

    Banjo-United should have dropped 2 points yesterday,fair and square mate.BHA were brilliant @ times,especially their No=11-Knockaert,what a terrific player!.
    Having seen the highlists of the Spurs game,must say your boys looked lethargic too,needless to say neither will be challenging for the title.Ours will be over after the next 2 games away to Watford and Le Arse.

    Arsenal have just scored a pen!

    That is heartbreaking for Burnley.

    Elsewhere, Everton are a real shambles at the mo. Southampton aren’t that good but that thrashing says more about the Toffees. No doubt, they’ll be up for our match in a few weeks time.

    Gutted for Burnley (had to pop in the office for a couple of hours.. on a Sunday.. WTF!!!), was it a “real” one or an “Arsenal” one? 🙂

    Toffee’s look like they’re in big trouble…

    Seen this Knockheart lad a few times this season, BHA are going to have their work cut out to keep him for any length of time.

    Only seen the highlights about the Spuds game, we never looked at the races from what I saw, happy to grab a point in the end. Be glad to see the end of November, seen some great performances and then a few not so great performances. Hopefully we can go on one of our “runs” now, get a rhythm going. Pity we’ll be missing Waananayayammaana and Alldlelrelelffwlerrield unitl the New Year, could really do with them around. At least Lamamlalalalalala is back! 🙂

    Good to listen to both sets of Managers post-match. Guardiola recognized and praised the account delivered from the Terriers and knows that turnaround was no walk in the park. He acknowledges there’s likely to be more of that in future games and is also prepared for an eventual first defeat. His key message is how is City team responds from adversity.

    It boils down to what the scoreline is after 90s minutes and in spite of everything Huddersfield gave, it was always going to be a huge task to uphold whatever lead they had or containing Man City on an even keel. Maybe some hope out there for opposition teams, but this blue team of Manchester simply so far is unstoppable.

    Honestly can’t see anyone stopping the Man City Juggernaut anytime soon, Even with that little bit of luck for Sterling’s Goal they still had enough I believe to have took the Three points anyway. Everton I’m afraid are looking real relegation fodder and they need to sort their Managerial issues pretty quickly, Unsworth isn’t the answer and that’s not His fault being drafted in to plug the Holes left by Koeman. Also I believe Jordan Pickford has changed His name by Deed Poll to Jordan Pickthatoneout :).

    Lol, can’t help but be a little mischievous when Kenwright to be removed was called in by one of the callers on the phone-in tonight 😀

    It was more the way it was aired, but he definitely had a valid point.

    Yep, Unsworth is definitely not the answer and I agree with one of the other callers calling out for a clean sweep which is what they need.

    I may have jinxed it now as they’ll probably end up picking up a draw when they meet us soon at Anfield, hahaha 🙂 🙂

    Just listened to a caller on the local phone in who actually started Crying about the Blues plight, He said the last time He cried was when Alan Ball left to join Arsenal back in 1974 but I think there will be more Tears cried if they don’t get their House sorted out.

    Lol, hahaha 😀

    I did genuinely read recently the 999 number used frequently from East London concerning West Ham – can’t believe any human being would stretch as far as that.

    I must say being a Liverpool supporter, I’ve been there and although poking a bit of fun at others, I admittedly split hairs than many when things are going well. The most darkest times was when we had Hicks and Gillette. That was scary because I just believe they would never budge.
