Team: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Lambert

Be interesting to see how Gerrard and Lucas are deployed. I'm assuming it'll be a diamond with Gerrard at the tip and Lucas at the base, but I'm worried that it'll be both of them as DMs which didn't exactly work against West Ham.

What a great day.

We won. Manchester United did not. There should be more days like this.

Be happy, gentlemen. Celebrate.

I'm going to restrict my tactical commentary to this:


The lad can cross. Don't put him the middle where he'll try and play on every part of the pitch simultaneously and just end up running around like a headless chicken leaving huge holes and upset the team shape as we build the play. Just put him on the right or left and say "get up that touchline and put balls into the box", and if says "But, I want to play in the center boss! " Klopp should clatter him.

Totally agree. It's his best position and was at city too.

2.) 14 Apr 2016 22:40:05
Didn't have much choice today, not sure Lucas was 100% fit and Allen is showing his worth as an impact sub! Would love for Flanagan and Stewart to be eligible!

3.) 14 Apr 2016 22:58:46
I think Stewart is eligible?

4.) 14 Apr 2016 23:30:11
Unfortunately not, burkey, he's over 21 and wasn't included in the squad in Jan.

It's bordering on a joke that we're looking at Mignolet on every other goal we concede. And somehow, his two senior understudies (Jones and Bodgan) have been worse. Meanwhile, West Ham (just as an example) have a 'keeper on their bench who'd walk into our first team. How did we manage that? And for £9m too? Was this always Migs' level and we didn't scout him properly? Or has the pressure of being at Liverpool and our coaching set up ruined the poor lad?

We might as well give Ward a game now. What's the worst he's going to do? Cost us the match? Migs is already doing that.

Ward has to start otherwise it was a terrible decision to cut his loan short whilst he was doing well.
I hope Klopp was able to watch the game live if he was well enough.
Mignolet is costing us points.
De gea earns united points whilst mignolet costs us. Difference between a terrible keeper and a top class one.

2.) 06 Feb 2016 20:56:07
Mingo was brought in because he was availabile and not because he was good enuff hence, he may well not have been scouted. He was average when he arrived and has now become utterly terrible, costing us almost double digit goals this season. Klopp gave him a new contract for reasons only he can tell you. That is his mistake and he'd better fix it and ASAP. Btw SM, who's the GK at WH u speak of?

3.) 06 Feb 2016 21:16:58
Darren Randolph.

He's not Ray Clemence, but he's competent and hasn't cost his team matches when been called on.

{Ed001's Note - actually he did initially, they wanted him out at one time.}

Not a bad debut goal from Ojo, that.

1.) 20 Jan 2016 21:57:00
That was top draw . if Rooney or some other big name did that you would never here the end of it . On debut 15 mins in quality lad . keep it up kiddo work hard and you be ok.

2.) 20 Jan 2016 21:59:49
Benteke is truly awful sorry.

3.) 20 Jan 2016 22:10:40
Cmon Benteke had a decent game.

4.) 20 Jan 2016 23:03:10
Come on pankaj he's a cent forward that over two games against second division got bullied and out played. His positioning is woeful for an international player never mind premiership.
Dont get me wrong I want the bloke to rip the premiership apart but on what i'm seeing not a chance in hell sorry.

I hope Rafa was at Anfield tonight to give Xavi Valero's phone number to Klopp.

Still remember the moment Lucas broke Yaya Toure in 2011. Toure was on a high from the previous season and set off on one of his trademark dribbles and Lucas just stepped across him, eased him out of it, and set off in the other direction with the ball.

Toure went on to have a fairly indifferent season. Coincidence? I think not. He was probably haunted by the image of a Brazilian midfielder half his size outmuscling him for the rest of the season. (This is slightly tongue in cheek, btw)

Personally I'd be looking to keep Lucas if I were in charge because whilst Hendo hasn't let us down in that position, he has a bit of room to improve defensively and Can's not really got the head for the "pivot" position in our midfield. So I'd like to see us have the option of Lucas' experience to call on, especially when we're in Europe next season. But as Ed001 says, he's earned the right to choose to play regular football if he wants and needs to.

That's a wind-up, isn't it?

Good player in his day, but his pace was already going before he left us in 2008 and was starting to expose that he wasn't a brilliant defender. I'd be quite surprised (albeit quite happy too) if he could do the business for us now.

Love how all our best players become "over-rated" when they're linked with a move away.

Milner's leading our assists table. I'd keep him on the condition that he's usually played on the right of midfield rather than in the middle.

I'd like to have seen Flanno instead of Moreno, but he was a bit knackered when he was subbed off against Palace, so can understand him not starting. I think Smith is still out too.

With that and Lucas' injury in mind, I think it's our best side.

- Something Red -

{Ed001's Note - isn't Flanno not in the Euro list? I had forgotten myself until today, but I am sure it is correct that he was left out as Klopp was not sure he would be ready.}

It seems that Premier League winning managers have been very transient employees lately:

Mancini won the league with Man City in 2011-2012. Sacked May 2013.
Mr. Ferguson won the league with Man U in 2012-2013. Retired immediately afterwards.
Pellegrini won the league with Man City in 2013-2014. Left the club in June 2016.
Mourinho won the league with Chelsea in 2014-2015. Sacked December 2015.
Ranieri won the league with Leicester in 2015-2016. Sacked Feb 2017.

Only Pellegrini will still in charge a year after winning the league.

Fancy a punt on Conte to leave Chelsea next season?

We need to give Karius another chance before looking at the likes of Pickford. Thought he did nothing wrong in the cup games in January and I'm actually a little surprised he's not back in the team for league games.

Err. Jezza, Gerrard scored 21 goals the season after he turned 27. And 24 the following season. And considering it was the peak of the Torres / Gerrard partnership, he probably had as many assists.

Gerrard was far better in terms of technique. He could hit shots and passes that Lampard and couldn't and was a better tackler and dribbler. That being said, Lampard was more intelligent in his play on the field, he picked his moments to try break forward and shoot and pass better as opposed to Gerrard's approach of trying to be everywhere at once. He was also consistently played in his best position from about 2004 onwards, whilst Gerrard played in every midfield position at some stage in his career.

Part of that may have been Gerrard's own fault. He always seemed to see himself as a midfield general like Roy Keane or a playmaker like Alonso. Whilst the technical ability to play these positions was undoubtedly there, he didn't have the in-game discipline or the patience for them, constantly either running forward too early in the move or playing long passes whether they were viable or not. Both Houllier (who played him on the right quite a bit) and Rafa knew this and that's why they preferred not play Gerrard in central midfield.

Overall I'd still call him the better player. With stronger management he might have been made develop his game into a second striker as his legs went and have retained his quality well into his 30s.

@ Burkey the ref blew and Migs wasn't paying attention. He said afterward he didn't hear it.

Shouldn't have been a free anyway.

He seems to be very good at getting off his line quickly and spreading himself to block. To the point where I was actually expecting him to keep Weimann out in the last match and was surprised he didn't.

I expect him back in the team for league matches soon on the basis that he's actually made saves in the past month whereas Migs hasn't. The only thing is he hasn't been really tested off crosses in the past few matches and we know that's his weak point.
