Great review as usual. Interesting what you say about VVD I think it's gone to the stage that any CB will do in some eyes. They fail to see the bigger picture. Forster the worst keeper in the league takes some beating considering Mignolet play's in it, lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I know mate, I was shocked by just how bad Forster was. He has never been great, or even good, but he is usually able to at least fill the goal.}

19 Nov 2017 12:55:56
Ed01 was it a case of us making Saints look abysmal or did they do that on their own. Will be a good test this week up against Sevilla and Chelsea.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - bit of both for me mate. They are not playing well or creating chances anyway and Liverpool took advantage and dominated them.}

19 Nov 2017 13:08:21
Thank you Ed, very good read. Could not agree more about Forster. That 3rd goal allowed was abysmal. Good for us though!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. There was also Forster's juggling when he dropped it at Salah's feet just to the edge of the goal, which could easily have cost Saints another goal.}

19 Nov 2017 13:11:47
Nice review ed01.

Forster was fairly terrible alright. The way he "dealt with" Alexander-Arnold's chance in the first half was pub team territory.

Just saw the Feyenord fans singing You'll Never Walk Alone for our former goalkeeper Brad Jones whose son died 6 years ago, yesterday. IMMENSE RESPECT for them!
Even though football is just a game, it can make you realize what is truly important through special moments like these!
YWNWA Brad Jones!

Ed1 is Salah surprising you mate?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}

19 Nov 2017 11:02:42
Salah's figures maybe good so far but its hardly surprising. He has simply carried on where he left off from Roma. The guy is no flash in the pan, he has proved it over the last 3 seasons. And at 37 million is an absolute bargain.

Agree6 0Disagree

19 Nov 2017 13:42:08
Not sure why there is so much surprise over Salah’s form?

What was surprising was why Chelsea and Roma let him go.

He has very good pace and decent skill to take on defenders. If he can polish his finishing he could add more goals to his tally.

Next weeks fixture v Chelsea is massive for us and a win will continue this little bit of momentum we are currently on. Chelsea have also hit a little bit of form so this is not going to be an easy game. We seem to have gone 180 on last season's issues where the top 6 contenders we dealt with easily and struggled against the rest. This season it has been totally different with only 1 win, 2 defeats and 2 draws (how Burnley are joint 5th is a credit to them) . Looking at the other team fixtures I think it needs to be 3 points for us otherwise we will find ourselves further away again in the chase for top 4.

Question on your thoughts here ed's. a lot of posted want a cb or two and a striker in the upcoming markets. My question is do we need said striker? People calling for a 20 goal a season striker, but surely we have a twenty goal, if not two, a season winger. I wonder if buying that kind off striker would hamper the attacking line, with Bobby doing what he does best and chase and hound allowing salah and mane the opportunity. Personally I wouldn't want one of those strikers here. Thoughts of not just the ed's, but the rest of you guys appreciated.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I think they are playing as strikers, after all didn't Henry constantly pull out wide to run in to the gap behind constantly? Unless you have a target man, for the long ball, a man up top just stifles movement out wide, which is why they have vanished from the top sides. The only issue is Firmino should add a few more goals, but an out and out striker would not help with that.}

19 Nov 2017 10:26:46
I think a top striker (goalscorer) would further improve us as a threat. I don't mean any striker they would have to be the right one to fit our style of play. Chelsea, City, Utd and Spurs all play with a natural goal scorer and it hasn't seemed to effected their trophy cabinets (with exception of Spurs 😂) and top 4 challenges. Last time we had a top class goal scorer playing at striker we almost won the league and that hasn't happened very much in the last 27 years. And Sturridge and Sterling still banged in goals to the left and right of him. Yes Firminho is a very very good player but we talk like he is the only player in the world that closes down or makes runs and then at the same time we pine for Sturridge and Solanke to get more minutes when surely that just contradicts that argument. For me our main priority is a top class keeper and centre half but once Coutinho leaves Firminho could easily play just off a top class striker. Just my opinion though. YNWA.

I think posters get hung up a bit on this top striker (goal scorer) . Its more important that we score goals and not actually who scores the goals. We scored plenty last season and we are doing well this season, its not an issue really. How many goals did we score when we had Suarez? Was it much more? I don't know! We just need to work on our away form defensively and we will be ok, in my opinion.

Bobby was instrumental in all Liverpool goals yesterday. He scored none of them, but if he was further up the pitch in a more 'standard' no 9's position, none of those goals might have not been scored.

Its only a problem if we're not scoring, and we don't really have too big a problem right now.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Nov 2017 13:00:06
Agree it is only a problem when we are not scoring. There have been plenty of games over the last few years where we have banged them in for fun. But on the other hand there has also been games where we cannot break the bus down and a top class striker is a match winner. Needs that 1 chance to win us the game i. e. Utd, Newcastle and Burnely this season. Luis was our last one and he was a match winner. Heck we threw the league title away with 3 games to go. Since then we have scored plenty yes but our closest title challenge has been finishing 4th.

I see a lot fans criticizing VVDs performance against us yesterday. He isn't what we need, The price tag is too much this and that.
There were many fans those who doubted Mane and Salah as I recall, Look how they have become key players for us in a very short period of time!
Klopp definitely sees something in vvd that we all can't see, so I say people need to calm down and keep supporting.

19 Nov 2017 05:56:47
Regardless of whether we need vvd specifically or not, a Cb of top quality is definitely needed. That much is certain.

He is simply fast and strong so can make up for errors that our current cbs cannot when playing the high line. He is decent on the ball and apparently a leader at the back but im unconvinced on that.

I wasn’t criticizing VVD.
I’m not saying you’re aiming it to me, but i did comment on VVD.
Apart of me hopes he is close to signing and that explains his performance, a bit with Alex.
But I didn’t want him performing like that because he WANTS to act like that.
I never really seen him lunge in, except when Henderson took him out, he didn’t bite back or anything.
I feel it was a little rash from Henderson but he got up shakes hands and walked off. I don’t know 😂
Either way, a really good performance.

Hi eds, my question is regarding team training sessions. Do teams actually rehearse their attacking moves? I know defensively they practice but offensive? I ask because Citeh 1st goal look very much like a training ground move. Do coaches drill the team til they master say attacking moves 1-99.if yes wouldn't that be so difficult as the permutation on field is so varied?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Citeh drill on offence rather than defence.}

19 Nov 2017 08:19:01
Considerable amount of time spent on these. It's why sometimes players give the ball away and leave fans thinking "why did he do that? "
Because it's been drilled that when this-this-and this happens, you do this.

a couple of weeks ago I voted for Lovren as player of the month. A lot of people did as he was named player of the month. Ed01 even put a link up here so people could vote. It was brilliant to see the way we backed the big man when he was going through it. I also think it has done some good on the pitch too. I think dejan is trying to repay our faith in him. Fair play to him and fair play to everyone who voted and proved our fans have REAL heart. Nice one ed for making it easier to vote.
