    Presumably that Upmenacano has got to be better than he’s shown tonight. He looks woeful

    Yeah, it’s gone a bit quiet, hasn’t it? I’m as guilty as anyone…just been in a sulk since Sunday! Sadly I think we’ve lost a few of the Liverpool fans like Mak and threeps, for some reason. I guess mainly because they prefer posting on an exclusively Liverpool thread. Mikus is like me and posts infrequently and only Nil is a regular Liverpool poster. Mind you, it’s alot easier posting when we’re doing well!

    As for this FA Cup thread, last night’s game was so deadly boring, there’s really little to say about it, other than the fact that United are a country mile behind City

    Apparently Klopp’s Mum passed away the night of the Burnley game and the funeral was yesterday. If true, it kind of puts things in to perspective. He couldn’t get back to Germany because of Covid restrictions. Poor fella. It maybe explains why he has been somewhat prickly in recent weeks.

    Pagan – yeah, I read somewhere this morning that there has been a Prem, FA Cup or Carabou Cup live game on for 24 out of the last 27 days. I know we need entertaining during lockdown, but it is getting ridiculous, and I think the football is getting worse (not just Liverpool!). There really should have been no Carabou Cup this season and no international breaks – that would have made it less congested

    Ed – we were missing Mane and more importantly Allison against Villa, but I take your point. The Villa game was 2 weeks before the Everton game, but I still feel that the kick in the b*****x (or the knee) that we got at Goodison derailed us more. We played well against Everton, and if we’d come through that with 3 points and VVD still fit, things may have been different. It’s all ifs and buts, of course, and it doesn’t alter the fact that we are in a trough right now, and it’s going to be difficult to get out of it in the next week or two.

    Pagan – it’s interesting what you say about Klopp, and you may very well be right. I do think that he doesn’t look like he’s enjoying the job very much at the moment. I think he’s missing the crowd as much as the crowd is missing him. And somewhat controversially, I’m going to say that the team are missing their crowd more than most other teams. I expect that comment to raise a few shackles amongst other fans, but I firmly believe that to be true. As a match going fan for 50 years now, apart from the last 11 months, I think the connect between this team and it’s fans is greater than any I’ve known. It’s something I don’t expect many to agree with on here, and it is something that I cannot factually back up of course.

    The bottom line is that there is something wrong at the moment, and it’s probably a combination of things all in all.

    And please….Divvy scoring goals in the CL semi and final should have been his final acts as a Liverpool player. Dont want to see him again in a red shirt. Use Minamino a bit more till Jota is fit.

    So where’s it all gone wrong? I really think our challenge to retain our title went off the rails the day at Goodison back in October when Pickford, Richarlison and the referee (and VAR) conspired to prevent us taking 3 points. And obviously not just the points, but putting VVD out for most of the season and Thiago out for nearly 3 months. I know we’ve had a couple of good results since then but we lost a lot of momentum and our best defender. Losing Virgil has had impacts throughout the team, not just defensively. His loss has greatly impacted the ability and confidence of the full backs to bomb forward effectively, and frankly, if you stop Trent and Robbo, you put a whole big dent in the team’s attacking prowess.

    Trent particularly is looking totally lost out there, and if he is lost then his ability to assist Mo, Sadio and Bobby is lost also. He needs a couple of weeks out of the team undoubtedly.

    Top 4 has to be our aim now though I’m not completely writing off the league just yet. But we have a nightmare set of fixtures over the next month so I’m lowering my expectations. Top 4 and make a fist of the FA Cup and CL will satisfy me. Difficult but not impossible! But Jurgen has his work cut out to change things.

    I can’t believe some on here have criticised Klopp for his team selection last night,,,you are kidding, right?

    I do think there is an argument for cancelling this season’s FA Cup as it is somewhat farcical, I see Sheff Wed have only 4 subs today for example, but the counter argument is the money that the small clubs will make, Gary’s Chorley being a prime example, and indeed my very own Marine tomorrow. There may not be the glory for Chorley beating Derby’s kids, but there IS the cash, and of course the possibility of drawing one of the really big boys in the next round, like Marine have.

    The mighty Marine will take Chorley in round 4!!

    Am I right in assuming there are no replays this year? Does anyone know?

    I notice you said on the other thread, Sean, that people are laughing at the UK (and you may well be right, by the way) but not half as much as people are laughing at the US. Now there is a country that really is in a mess. So many divisions, si many guns, so much Covid, and a President who refuses to accept the democratic process. Every time I think the UK is in a mess, I console myself with the thought that I could be American!!

    What a grim 1st half that was. What has happened to Trent? Ox looking list also, and Hendo ain’t a centre back. Apart from that…!!

    Cheers, Gary. Same to you, mate! Still waiting for that congratulatory pint in the Boundary for our League win! Think I may have to wait a while yet! Happy New Year seems a trite thing to say at the moment, but you know the right sentiments are there!

    I apologise that I seem to have come in on this discussion a little late, some moderator I am! As far as I can see, it is an argument over nothing. I think the City lads main gripe is the wording of Everton’s statement and what it implies, and I think we can all agree that it could be significantly improved upon. As long as the rules of postponement are the same for everyone, then there should be no issues. I don’t profess to understand the rules of when a game gets postponed, and frankly I have little interest in researching it, but I imagine that the affected club has to apply to the PL stating their situation, and the League makes the decision…end of!

    However, Gary, I have to pull you up on one point where you say ‘what happens if other players are asymptomatic, then it would spread’. Well, isn’t that the case all of the time? In that case, we should just stop playing completely…is that what you are saying? My club had a couple of cases earlier in the season with Mo, Mane, Thiago and Keita all contracting the virus, so should all our games have been postponed in case other players were asymptomatic. I would say not, and I’m with Lucky in saying that the risk to these fit young men is in fact minimal. And I would add to that by saying that football is one of the very few things about at the moment that enables people to momentarily forget the dreadful situation that we are all in. It is providing a release, certainly for me not having worked for 3 months now, and I’m sure for millions others. It’s a moot point though, as I feel it inevitable that the season will once again be postponed.

    Finally, I would urge threeps, Lucky, Brian, Shiney et al who have taken part in this discussion to draw a line in it, and just look at what we are arguing about.. It’s not really that important whether a game is postponed or not, and all your inputs on this site are far more valuable.

    I’m interested in Werner…at the beginning of the season I thought he looked really good, even though from memory it took him a game or two to score. He looked sharp, his movement and pace were superb, and I really thought Chelsea had got themselves a diamond. And after the incessant speculation over the last 18 months about him coming to Anfield, I was very jealous we’d missed out on him. I think it’s likely he will still prove to be a massive success, but he has looked very poor recently, and I can’t really understand why. He has good players around him, but maybe Lampard is rotating everyone else too much? I know they’ve had injuries, but one week he’s playing alongside Abraham, next week Giroud, next week Havertz, next week Pulisic. It seems that only Werner himself and Mount of the offensive players are definite starters. Compare and contrast with Klopp who, admittedly with a smaller pool of attacking players to pick from, always plays 3 of Mo, Mane, Bobby or Jota.
