I hope 1 of the Ed's can assist me with this question.
Are the FA going to cancel the league this season?
I've heard a sidde competing for the league should it draw 2 games in a row, and i was wondering surely then, a side that lost 2 games in a row should also not be competing for the league. So that leaves City out as well, and then pretty much every team below then have lost and/ drawn matches.
So what will happen? Should the FA cancel the league now?

I think Andy's post is an attempt at a sarcastic swipe at the hysteria after last night's match Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know I couldn't figure it out sorry.}

It’s his failed attempt at being funny and trying to say there’s an overreaction happening.

The obvious answer is “yes, the FA should cancel the league” 👍.

When the opposition scored, most cases it's because of a defensive error. I prefer to use the term wrong decision instead of mistake/ error.
We are very quick to blame the usual suspects. If Mignolet was in goal, he would have been torn apart for being beaten at the near post.
Wrong decisions by attacking players results in us not scoring a vital goal, but that isn't as harshly judged as a defensive error that results in us conceding a goal. If Mane ained the ball 2cm to the right, that would have went in off the post
I think we didn't lose a game we were outplayed or made too many blatant errors. 6 weeks ago, everyone felt it was Cities title, so the fact that there was not much between us over 2 games, shows that we really are title contenders, and the fact that we have a lead, shows we still have an excellent chance.

Andy Fields

1.) 05 Jan 2019 09:52:33
I agree to a point but there’s being beaten at the near post and there’s having the ball being smashed past you from 5 yards away.
I wouldn’t have blamed any keeper for conceding that.
You’re right though it was a tight game which could’ve easily gone our way. We’re still top and still in control of our own destiny with our most difficult game left Utd away.
I’m not concerned at all.


2.) 05 Jan 2019 11:14:18
I just thought we set out for a draw and that doesn't suit us we can't decide to just play for a draw against the likes of city

Should have pressed and went for it we played for a draw at napoli aswell and lost


So why not just go for it if ya get ahead with 30 to go see it out.


3.) 05 Jan 2019 12:41:20
It a was a naive approach to sit back. And one I knew we'd try. Suited Man City all night until late In the game when we actually attacked.


4.) 05 Jan 2019 12:57:15
Dezy, I agree that it seemed we set out for a draw in that game BUT what people fail to grasp is that last season when we pummeled City 3 out of 4 times, we pretty much played the exact same system. We let them have the ball, stayed compact and then pounce on them as soon as they lost the ball with the EXACT same midfield trio (bar Ox and Can in the 4-3 win at Anfield) . And for the most part, it worked cos City had only on shot in the first half (the goal) and did not have their second shot until Sane's goal. Had we had the breaks City had, we don't lose or prolly win and no one is saying anything critical about the approach. Credit to City as well for the way they played. That's football, my friend. On to Wolves.


5.) 05 Jan 2019 14:35:16
RedWolf I disagree pal we just wanted to pass it around the back it's not our game we tried for a draw with napoli and lost aswell


Just go for it we are a very good side who can attack and defend if the balance is right

And for me in this moment I think the Henderson Milner and wijnaldum in the middle is far to stale and are happy to go sideways with there passes I didn't think fabinho would be more attacking then those 3 when we singed him!

Looking forward to seen fabinho I'll be of those 3 and Keita in front later this season.


6.) 05 Jan 2019 16:54:56
I think both midfields struggled to keep the ball down. We looked much better when fab came on and had the confidence to turn with the ball and look up for passes. I think that tells us we showed city too much respect.

Alison can't be blamed for the first goal. The guy has been a class act since he joined. Migs had odd spells where he played well but way way way too many mistakes. It's like comparing Steven Gerrard and Kevin kilbane.

We could have won the game. We were not out played at all and I still honestly believe we are the better team. I'm a massive Henderson fan but maybe fab should have started instead.


7.) 05 Jan 2019 21:02:17
I disagree, Dezy. We have used the same midfield before and won an several occasions. We did it vs City twice in the CL last season and vs Roma when we thumped them 5-2. Also, it was the same midfield that bossed Napoli at home (even tho we lost at Napoli with that midfield as well) and the combo that got us to the CL final. Was that midfield combo stale back then? Were we just passing it around back then as well when scoring goals for fun? Exactly. You can't just say the combo does not work cos we lost but ignore the many times that it did work. That is not how footie works. Sometimes, you go with what you know has worked for the most part in the past in hope that it will work again, . There are NO certainties in football. Neither is hindsight a relevant thing in football.

You can disagree with the formation and that is fine BUT who says had Fab played, it would have worked? Who says that had we gone more offensive it would have worked and had it not, ould you still say it was the right decision or would you use hindsight to say we should have tried to contain them early on?

Remember that Fab struggled vs Arsenal when they pressed us at the Emirates and City pressed us way more and better than Arsenal ever did and maybe Klopp considered that and played the combo that has worked in big games and who are used to being pressed to death and knowing how to react to it.

I maintain that the combo for the most part worked and City had only 1 shot in the first half. It was a shame that Aguero's goal was amazing cos if not, we are comfortable with City not laying a hand on us. In fact, we had the best chance of the first half with Mane and another ref sends Kompany off. We did not get those breaks and that is what lost us the game, overall. I'm cool with that cos City shaded it by a hare's breathe. Klopp got it right, IMO and we're going to have to agree to disagree on this one, pal.


8.) 05 Jan 2019 23:26:59
Spot on, boys. When a goal is conceded most of the time, it is due to a collection of errors BUT the one who commits the last error (cos he has to react to the comedy of errors that happened beforehand), gets the blame which is unfair BUT that is how it is. Check out the second goal. TAA is out of position and Lovren has to choose who to pick up between Sane and Aguero. He picks Aguero cos he is in his zone thru the middle. TAA is late on the cover out wide and Mane does not track Sane's run from deep. Lovren then leaves Aguero to contain Sane, the shot is taken and TAA is late on the block. Goal. Who got the blame? Lovs cos well it is the easier thing to do.

As for the first goal, you have to tip your hat to Aguero cos with another striker, the play is actually well defended by Lovren forcing him into an impossible position to score and ONLY Aguero could have scored that cos he is just an animal and also, he did the same thing to DDG when they played Utd this season as well. We live, we learn, we move on to Wolves.

Firstly if we see fault with our team, it dies not make us any less passionate or a fan than the next person.
Those that are saying we not playing as well as we should, are not saying we should go back to our strategy of last season. All we are saying is that we have drastically improved our defense and keeper, so if we played the attacking football of last season, or close to that, with some caution, we would be playing better. We not asking for 5-4 wins. We expressing that we are not playing to ALL our strengths yet.
If Sturridge didn't score that last minute goal against Chelsea, if Mahrez scored the penalty and if the goal Fulham scored stood (we have had bad decisions given against us) . We could be 5 points less. With potentially 3 losses. Chelsea and City could have 2 more points each as well. Now I'm not say this to say that we were lucky, my point of this is, woukd everyone still be happy if thise 3 things happened? Because honestly, that would put us in a position we were last season, when most were not so happy. I think Klopp also feels we need to improve in our attack.
Our "criticism" should not be taken as a negative vibe against the team, all we saying is we do need to improve in our midfield when we are attacked. And improve in midfeild and attack linking when we attack.

Lot of “ifs” there, you sound like an Everton fan, “if” this and “if” that.
You can say the same about any team in the league, games have fine margins, any team can have more or less points depending on small decisions, you’ve just decided to focus on all the occasions we got lucky, saying if we didn’t get that luck we would be lower down the table, you could quite easily look at all our games and pick out all the times we didn’t have luck and conceded or didn’t score and say we should be miles ahead. At the end of the day it’s the result at the end of the night that matters, over a season the good and bad luck evens itself out.
You can’t play defensive and attacking football at the same time it doesn’t work, if we played more offensive then the defence will suffer, we are grinding out results and that’s all that matters in a title challenge, we also have a brand new goalkeeper let's not put extra pressure on him by leaving him exposed.
this years football isn’t as fun to watch but looking at the league table makes up for that, it’s obvious the team is a lot more restrained so we last the distance in a title race.
Finally, seriously stop bloody moaning and support the team.


2.) 14 Nov 2018 10:56:09
That's a good one, mikey! Totally agree with you. But I won't say watching Liverpool this season isn't as fun as the previous season. I would say different. I like it just as much.


3.) 14 Nov 2018 12:26:39
I don’t think anyone would disagree that we’re far from on top form Andy. But anyone who’s been slammed for negativity is rightly so. We can express our concerns with team performances without moaning. Ultimately we are 2nd and 2 points off a fantastic city squad having already played them. We can spout luck all we want but there are zero grounds to moan about our current circumstances.

These moans would only be warranted if weren’t where we are. Be concerned, but don’t complain, do you think we could have started better honestly and realistically?


4.) 14 Nov 2018 12:28:22
Almost every Arsenal game on their unbeaten streak has been a highly contested game that they could have easily lost or drawn. Yes we’ve had a couple of games where decisions have gone our way but the Arsenal game was an example of luck evening out. It’s fine to critique the team, but to suggest we don’t deserve to be where we are is simply untrue. Our performances haven’t been great all the time, but neither has any other team bar city. Reading some comments you’d think Arsenal and Chelsea were 10 points ahead of us.


5.) 14 Nov 2018 13:20:13
All champions can mix it and be flexible like winning ugly or winning when not 100 percent as well as slicing teams open and showing class, i would rather be a team that can win in more ways than one than one that can only play one way an if it doesn't work we implode. That is what klopp is trying too work towards I think and maybe it had an impact on his working relationship wid buvac as last season an seasons before it was all guns blazing with no other method of play . I believe city are the best as they have adapted the quickest and the best under pep too all the qualities mentioned above we are learning on the job .


6.) 14 Nov 2018 13:32:57
It's all a question of semantics and "perspective", in the end. By definition words like "better" and "worse" are always going to be subjective because everyone sees things in their own way, and there's nothing anyone can do about it. Some choose the high flying style of last year and some choose the methodical style of this year. And while some can argue that the points total thus far this year makes the team "better" than last years, some will bring up luck and slower "workmanlike" approach to playing and, therefore, a more boring and tedious style from the perspective of a fan/ viewer.

My view is that we must win the title. And I prefer to leave the style of play up to Mr. Klopp and his team. He knows best, simply because he's been placed in charge of making those decisions which result in the style of play we are using. I saw the high flying years of 13/ 14 and last year, and after not making it in the end, I will give Mr. Klopp and his team the option to choose whichever style he thinks is necessary to finally get over the hump this year.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the back and forth that is going on these pages. Everyone has their perspective. I'm simply leaving it up to the manager to do as he sees fit to win the title because that's what I trust his objective is (the same as mine) .


7.) 14 Nov 2018 13:34:15
Luck usually evens itself out over the season. The table doesn’t lie and this season we have been the 2nd best team regardless of ifs and buts. If you’re not happy with the progress we have made I really have no idea what your expectation was? Break a new premier league record for points after 12 games? Key is to stay in the mix until after Xmas and then you’re in with a shout. Every team will go through a tough period. We may have just had ours and look where we are!


8.) 14 Nov 2018 16:57:39
You have a valid point there Swishcleaner. Last year was one of surprises. Nobody expected us to threaten ManC the way we did or end up in the UCL final, and let's not forget about Klopp's 4th choice winger purchase ending up as Player of the Year. So last year's surprises created expectations for this year. The same type of play and better results because we reinforced weak areas. The results are better (mathematics and numbers don't lie) but the style of play has been different; mostly out of design by Klopp and the coaching staff. So people talk.


9.) 14 Nov 2018 19:15:32
OP, using the if's and but's kind of defeats your whole theory I'm afraid. Had we scored all our chances vs Chelsea, we win the game, period. See, anyone can play that game. Those are hypotheticals and sorry, I do not live in that world cos you can use those to make any subjective point you want to make. I live in the here and now and right now, the table as someone said, does not lie. We are where we are cos we deserve to be there. NOBODY gave us anything. We have earned every point we have and the ones we don't have, we have not doe enough to earn them. That is how football and really, life works.

Now should we improve? Absolutely cos the issues are there for all to see. What does a lot of people's heads in is those moaning cos we did not pummel Fulham 5-0. That is where the moaners get no sympathy from me. They seem to forget that this is football, the PL where any given weekend, a big team can lose points or lose, period. Ask City (drew with Wolves) and Arsenal (who almost got embarrassed by same Wolves) or Spurs who struggled mightily vs Wolves and Palace. You have to go out there and compete and that is what we have done and will continue to do.

I also think people see our season thru the prism of what City is doing. It is a choice they have made for themselves so them moaning about stuff will be met with criticism cos we are LFC, not City. Klopp and LFC no longer need to prove that they can play fluid footie, score goals or pummel the best teams in all of Europe. It is time to WIN and Klopp is trying to do that and whatever decisions he makes that will help us get there, I am good with.

After the Southampton game, I posted in here and got criticized for saying that if I could find 1 fault, it was that we didn't go for another goal, mainly in the second half, where we couldn't get into good positions in their box. I felt a few shots from outside the box would have helped us maybe get the 4th goal.
There was hardly much space for us to get into good positions in the Chelsea box. Our goal came from a world class strike from outside the box. Salah did take a shot from distances as well.
I still feel we need to take a few shots from outside the box, instead of always trying to work the ball into the net. We are going to come up against sides with good defense who will hold a good line, but, with long shots as a threat, it will give us space as they will be looking out for that as well.

Andy Fields

1.) 30 Sep 2018 15:03:07
True. sometimes we are trying to be too fancy. I would like to see more shot from our mids. Kita?!


2.) 30 Sep 2018 22:31:42
Andy, I agree with you that we have to be a bit unpredictable in our approach. That said, I disagree that we could not get into good positions cos if that was the case, how did Salah have the three chances he had in the box off of the intricate play that led to them? How did Mane get the chance he got in the box after good work from Bobbie in the box? Two shots cleared off the line from shots taken inside the box? You can argue that we did not do enough to be more efficient up top BUT to say that we could not get into good positions, is untrue cos the stats I listed prove you wrong. As for us needing a worldie to get a point after creating more clear chances than they did well, that is football for you. It is NOT an exact science.


 

 

23 Sep 2018 07:00:28
We played well yesterday, but just a few quick points/ questions.
In the second half, I really wanted us to score another goal. But we couldn't seem to thread through their defence. Have we scored a goal from outside the box this season?
The 1 criticism I have, is that we didn't look for more goals in the second half with an urgency. We did attack well I think, but I feel 1 more goal would have put us in a better position to remain top, with goal difference, if Chelsea win today. Which I feel may help going to them next week.
Its that killer instinct that's missing a bit, to finish off a team. Now I know everyone will say 3 nil is finishing off a team, but City woukd have tried for more.

Andy Fields

{Ed001's Note - and City have shown how limited a team they are in Europe, so why on earth would we want to be like them?}


1.) 23 Sep 2018 08:05:09
City are still benefiting from the fear factor that surrounds them in England. Cardiff are also a woeful team. The more teams try and get at City the more they will realise that there is a soft underbelly there to be exploited, for those with courage at least. I don't think we could say the same about us - sure teams may score goals against us, but I think even this early on in the season we have shown how resilient we are and how difficult teams will find it playing against us. We could've added to our tally as well - City may score slightly more goals but, against opposition who are game, they will likely concede more as well.


2.) 23 Sep 2018 08:07:18
Seriously?! 🙄.


3.) 23 Sep 2018 09:38:26
3 games in 9 days mate, its called game and squad management, hence why shakira was changed at half time i suspect. Klopp is no mug people, we could have gone all out and had no juice left for Wednesday.


4.) 23 Sep 2018 09:56:30
It’s fans like you that create an awful atmosphere at Anfield even when winning 3-0.


5.) 23 Sep 2018 11:09:23
The chants of “Is this a library” from the Southampton fans were quite sad, flidby. If you can’t get a stadium singing at 3-0 up then something isn’t right.


6.) 23 Sep 2018 12:36:21
Being 1st or 2nd based on goal difference is not important at all in September. The key is to remain within 3-5 points of the first place come the last 5 games.


7.) 24 Sep 2018 06:06:46
It actually makes me think its not worth posting here anymore. Did any of you not see the first few words of my post? I said we played well!
Are we less of a supporter if we ask questions that may make us better?
There are 2 parts to my post, 1 was about us not scoring from distance. I feel that teams are going to pack the box, which is going to make ot hard for us to thread through the defence. This was clear in the second half. So buy us scoring a few goals from distance, or even just taking a few shots, will add to our attack, and teams won't just sit back around the box
The second part was not meant as a critism of how well we are playing, it was merely me stating that I would have liked for us to try to win by 4 goals to close down the goal difference or open up a bigger gap. I didn't say we have to start playing like city in every way!
We just need to try and get that killer instinct that we had last season, 1 goal or 2 goals were not enough, the team always tried to score more.


8.) 24 Sep 2018 09:45:19
Why do we have to score more when we’re winning 3-0?
Last season we did because there was a good chance we would concede 2 goals in quick succession.

These days, with a more solid defence, we are able to shut teams out. The more we practice this, the easier it will be to win tight games (like finals)

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?

We have sold Solanki already, maybe another 2 or 3 soon. Why are we assuming that we would only buy if we sell a starter (player from the starting 11)?

People celebrate 8n different ways. Forget the jumping up and down, or the high fives or the slides etc, just look at Mo's determination in his eyes when he scores, and the look on his face. He is happy to score, he is happy for the team, he is happy he put his side in a better position. He just doesn't celebrate the way others do!
