Before the match, I said I would take a draw. On hindsight, I overestimated Man. Utd
The match was ours for the taking, and for me, it further cements the fact that the attack is as much of a problem as the defence. How many chances must we create before we score? If we're able to take our chances, no one would be so focused on the defence.
Secondly, what's wrong with the players? Why must they only be up for games against the top teams while they sleep against the "lower" teams. The potential in this team is enormous. I think the players are throwing games away and this is why we aren't title contenders.

It’s the expectation of LFC being title contenders that is frustrating all of us. We have a squad with limited depth but it’s a squad better than last season, although yes we aren’t capitalising on the chances - but we’re in the CL and in a position for a top 4 finish. With Keita and possibly a defensive addition (/ s) January/ summer, we should be looking at next season for the top spot.

Where the hell are the goals going to come from with this team? Apart from that it was a good performance and a clean sheet. If we were listen to the pundits our obituary was written before a ball was kicked. Joe Gomez take a bow you kept Martial and Rashford quiet. There were lots of good performance's but he was my motm.

Can some please answer me why spend £50m on Robertson and the ox and not play them?
Also why is robo not on the bench

I think we need to go with Milner left back tmrw he's solid, dependable and will do the job with 100% commitment, lovren and matip cb and Gomez right, I would keep the usual mid, can, hendo and gini, front 3 of count, firm, and salah we can do these 2 morrow.

Against United I'd like to see:

I agree with adding Ward and Robertson but I'd also like to see Ox thrown in. He needs game time, I sincerely believe the lad has a lot to offer. I'd also like to see Gomez on.

Ed01 what's your feeling for Saturday mornings game against the manc's? And what team would u put out?

{Ed001's Note - feeling? If you mean prediction I don't do them mate, too superstitious. As for team it would be Ward in goal, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Robertson in defence. Can, Hendo, Coutinho in midfield and the front 3 pick themselves imo.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2017 14:35:24
I’d take that but I expect Moreno and Migs to start unfortunately.

11 Oct 2017 01:11:08
Hi Ed001, how would you line up now that we know Mane's out? Wiji or Chamberlain in midfield and move Couts up left?

{Ed001's Note - I would put Ox up there. No point buying him if he is not going to be used.}

12 Oct 2017 12:44:26
We have to give the OX a run of games now. We can't keeping throwing him in and out of games and then complain about his performances.

12 Oct 2017 22:05:17
Cheers Ed001, what about formation, would you stick with the 4-3-3 or have Can and Hendo holding behind Couts?

{Ed001's Note - I would never go with a 4-3-3, not with the players we have. It would always have 2 holding the way we play.}

13 Oct 2017 11:09:57
Cheers Ed001 really appreciate the responses.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

Everyone knows the issues all too well. trickier is what to do about it. This would be my suggestion

Side vs Man Utd
Mane - Firmino - Salah
Coutinho - Hendo
Robertson - Lovren - Matip - Gomez

Avoids too many changes all at once but the two at the back in Robertson and Karius I think will make a big difference, with Can told to sit deep and screen the defence and Hendo given a bit more license to use his energy hunting down the ball and pushing forward. The high energy press in midfield isn't working without Lallana so best to have a proper Deep midfielder screening defence and Can should be it IMO.

Then after Utd I would look to transition Milner or TAA in at RB and play Gomez at LCB. The strikers I would also look to give Solanke a decen run or starts upfront against the lower sides, with Firmino starting against better sides where we need his pressing ability and link play, while Solanke to play against lower sides where his movement and size in the box will be useful for the wide players to hit and I'm sure he will convert more chances in the tight spaces with a bit of patience to let him play himself in.

Sturridge needs to be our impact sub IMO - very useful player but not what he was. He needs to get back to scoring regularly to justify taking Firmino out of the side.

Over the long term I would like to see a 4-2-3-1 and Hendo/ Keita in the deeper midfield roles and Mane, Coutinho/ Lallana, Salah behind Firmino or Solanke, but I'd also like to see us bring in a true DM if Can leaves to give us the option to play 4-3-3 with proper defensive cover. Oh and obviously at least one of not two CBs.

I highly doubt Keita has been signed to play a deep role. It would be utterly pointless spending that much on a player with the massive amounts of forward energy to have him protect our defence. It just would not make any sense.

He is a full on athletic box to box midfielder. Powers his way through any midfield and defence. Has goals and assists in him.

Klopp is not going to play Keita as a holding midfielder. That is for sure.

10 Oct 2017 04:12:56
Agree but that’s not a holding role for Keita in a 4-2-3-1, the double pivot allows either midfielder to become the ball carrier and drive at their defence while the other provides cover.

06 Oct 2017 08:43:57
As a footballing Nation they have gone from Lampard, Gerrard and Beckham standing over freekicks to Kyle Walker.

Sorry John Stones. England doesn't play like Manchester City, When your outlet of a pass is Jordan Henderon and not David Silva or KDB you have every right to get frustrate

AOC had 32 touches during yesterday's match and I am not sure if he had any control on any of those 32 touches. Welcome to liverpool lad!

Good luck England. You ll need it.

England are terrible, I won't watch that rubbish, the whole team apart from Kane are useless. They don't seem interested, they don't gel together as a team and must be the most boring team you can watch play. Even when the world cup comes I won't be watching them, give me an argentina, spain, france, brazil game over them any day.

05 Oct 2017 20:20:21
Anyone watching England now! AOC and Henderson starting!

Didn't watch the game today but when I saw the result I was gobsmacked, gutted about that to be honest it's as bad as a loss, it's games we should be winning. Would love a match review ed1 should you get time mate.

Agree3 Disagree0

02 Oct 2017 19:31:28
YOU were gutted? Not only was I gutted we didn't get all 3 points, but it let my acca down. 6 in on Saturday, just waiting fo Liverpool to win for over £340. Was already spending the money in my mind. That will teach me.

03 Oct 2017 00:42:35
Lol I'm not as gutted as you then mate, I feel your pain.
