Hendo's goal was brilliant. And everyone thinks that, but let's not forget about Lovren's goal.
The timing of the run, and the finish was top class.
If our defenders can do that, imagine how scary our forwards must be for opposition teams.

The best part of having Klopp as a manager, is if we down before half time, I feel confident that after half time, we will get back into the game (Arsenal, Dortmund, and Leicester yesterday (although we were not down in goals, we needed an up lift) .
It shows how he can motivate the players.

Completely agree, Andy. I don't remember that kind of mentality in the Hodgson/ Rogers years. Weve been missing a bit of grit and spirit in the side for a while and Klopp seems to be instilling that belief and determination.

I loved how matip showed real leadership after the mistake, love thatin a player u concede a goal get your head up because we all make mistakes . great game reds we move on to the next.

I haven't had a chance to watch a lot of games this season (other teams), has Chilwell done well for Leicester so far?

Andy Fields

Dont think he has played much, if at all.

{Ed001's Note - Fuchs is still holding down the place. Hard to dislodge the best left back in the league from the previous season in the early weeks. He will get chances when European football comes around, it is up to him to grab the opportunity.}


2.) 01 Sep 2016 07:30:49
Ed can you clarify something plse WRT Chilwell, I have read from respectedsources that the lad was not very keen on coming to us and apparently his dad gets heavily involved and is a nightmare so Klopp/ club decided against the move.
I think it's important people realise there is more to bringing in players than just their (potential) ability, and nice to see that we are not bringing in more possible problems.

{Ed001's Note - he was keen, very keen on the move. He loves it at Leicester but knew it was a chance to get an immediate first team shot. It had even been made clear to other clubs that he wanted to go to Liverpool, which was why no one else was in for him this summer, after a large number had previously been very interested. I have no idea about his dad, but it was Leicester's asking price that stopped the deal.}

Just read an interesting post further down. "It took years to screw this club up, it will not be fixed overnight"
Brilliant!
We have hovered in the top 3 or 2 for years, without wining the leauge. That was in the past. Prior to that, we have won the league many times.
But, of late, we have been around the 5th - 7th, and even 8th position.
Many, including our fans say that we are a mid table team.
How does a mid table team go up the log?
Not over night, not in just 1 season. Yes, it has happened with some teams, but 1 hit wonders.
For us to get back to the top, we have to progress to that.
We'll have to work towards it, and be patient.
And it will happen.

It took years to screw this club even when we splashed the cash.

I've always felt that football has "trends", and that most, if not all, managers follow these trends.
When I was growing up, the trend was 4-4-2, with 2 strikers that clicked together, hunted in pairs. And 2 pacy wingers. It was attack down the flanks, then whip in a cross, and the strkers were there to finish.
Then it was the time of the attacking wingers/ strikers. They had pace and skill, but wanted the glory, so they had to score the goals. And eventually we didn't know if they played on the wings, or if they were strikers.
Formations changed a lot during this time.
Then, these strikers wanted to move central, and the new term of attacking mids came aboard. And they played just behind the striker.
Now, between these changes, we went from 2 strikers, to just 1 out and out striker.
And some teams didn't even play with a striker, they just went with midfielders that could score.
Now, we seem to be in the era of attacking mids running the sport, and fullbacks offering the width, and defensive midfielders now slotting in to defense. Its all gone to hell, in my opinion.
At school, we were bluntly told by our coaches, that the difference between profesional teams (the ones we watched on tv) to the way school kids play, is that profesionals play in positions, and that the whole team doesn't all run behind the ball, like we kids at school did.

I'm a footballing traditionalist and believe that the 4-4-2 formation was handed down to us by our footballing forefathers.

I've got a theory that formations are cultural.


2.) 25 Aug 2016 09:43:08
I'm a 4-4-2 fan I'll be honest. Fullbacks that defend first and attack 1 at a time. Old fashion wingers that get to the byline and whip it in. Box to box midfielders. And a big man, small man combination up front. Nothing wrong with lumping the ball into the mixer if you ask me. Balls into the box terrify defenders.


3.) 25 Aug 2016 09:46:10
@Andy, Professionals DO play in positions haha.


4.) 25 Aug 2016 09:56:51
Atletico Madrid still plays a decent 4-4-2 as well Leicester city. It's all about personal. If you have two brilliant wingers with pace and crossing abilities and CM's who could defend a lot lot better than what we have atm, you could always play this system. Kenny wanted to implement this system with Downing and Carroll which never took off while we never had a half decent winger on the right hand side ( Often Kuyt occupied that position ) . I don't even remember a positionally sound CM before or after Xabi Alonso. There lies the issue.
It's not the System, It's the players.


5.) 25 Aug 2016 12:30:42
Don't quote me on it but Positions mean nothing, if you score more goals than the other team, normally you win the match?


6.) 25 Aug 2016 16:13:59
I did quite you DBol and the missus disagreed 😉.


7.) 25 Aug 2016 18:27:53
I understand that some players are more attacking, and some more defensive but it seems we are loosing balanced CM's they wither have to be CAM and CDMs the old 442 your CM had to do both jobs.


8.) 26 Aug 2016 09:58:41
The bit I don't get is how many people want to play wing backs as part of a back 4, using wing backs who can't really defend; when that only really seems to work when you have 3 at the back and the wing backs playing slightly further forward with defensive responsibilities higher up the pitch. Surely the part of scoring more than the opposition is an equation with 2 sides, you score more, they score less, rather than the simplistic Keegan ball view of just slugging it out and trying to have 1 more goal at the end.


9.) 26 Aug 2016 10:06:10
I'd find it interesting to know how many managers ever succeed when they come in with that "I play football this way, my teams play this way" mentality and how many more or less succeed who look at what they have available to them first and build their team around playing that way. For me (as an impartial obvserver on both counts) it was interesting to watch that Leicester knew exactly how to use a man with pace and finishing ability and England, with the same man, couldn't get anything even decent out of him and looking at the opposition I don't buy that it was the level of opposition that changed. Just my opinion but the must find space for big name player caused England to fail whereas must gel as a team is why Leicester worked.

Formations don't matter as nothing is ever set in stone.

If he was just at the game because he was on holiday, then why leave before the game ended? Wasn't he the one that asked people to stay for the full games?

I wonder how many days in advance did they fly to Peru, to be able to play for Brazil.

Sweet chin music, what are you doing on this site? You seem to like the way every other team plays. Why pretend to be a Liverpool supporter?

I think he may have thought that he couldn't handle the ball because it would have been regarded as a back pass? And he thought he was going to get to it before the Palace player.

Certain games may call for a manager to play for a draw. This game did not call for Morinho to play for a draw! If he went for a win, and won, he would have moved up the table, and could have even made the top 4. A draw left them at 7th. So a win was important.
