Nothing wrong with our performance today, just lacked that finishing touch once again. 'Top of the league your having a laugh' give tony pulis 200m to spend and he beats us today, the Jose mourinho hype is ridiculous!

Midge3

{Ed025's Note - i agree midge..


1.) 14 Oct 2017 14:51:01
Mourinho had a plan and he got what he wanted. A point. We failed yet again to get the points we wanted. That's why they will finish ahead of us.


2.) 14 Oct 2017 15:24:34
I'm happy with that point to be honest. That'll do me, I thought it'd be a draw, never expected anything more or anything less.


3.) 14 Oct 2017 15:55:19
Our defence comes in for a lot of stick so a big "Well Done" for the clean sheet today, against the league leaders. Should have nicked it but hey, we didn't lose.


4.) 14 Oct 2017 16:02:48
Give it a rest Roy. none of us expected anything more before kick off. Second Top scorers in the league and they play like that against there biggest rivals, not convinced. City for the title imo.


5.) 14 Oct 2017 16:21:49
Please explain to me why a manager who is trying to get past a parked bus doesn't add attackers instead of swapping them? Why not add Sturridge instead of replacing him with Salah or Coutinho? Why stick with a 433 and not add more forwards?

Alex Ferguson would have added attackers, not replaced them man for man. it's kind of toothless when you needed the win. I'd have been very disappointed with my manager, just like I'm disappointed with my manager's tactics. But you were home and you trail us by 7 points.


6.) 14 Oct 2017 16:23:23
Klopp and the team expected 3 points before the game Midge. and considering how bad they were in every department except the goal keeper we should've been more clinical and finished them off. Simple if we want to be considered top 4, we need to be taking our chances whoever the opposition is . And by the way I am a liverpool fan, don't give a damn which manchester club wins it, I just want my club to do better .


7.) 14 Oct 2017 16:30:39
As a United fan, the team who parked the bus, are you seriously asking why klopp didn't add more strikers when for the bulk of the game yours didn't leave your half? I'm assuming your profile picture is a selfie because mate you're goosed if you are using that excuse, didn't realise united saw themselves on par with Burnley et al. I know a few united fans, decent guys but you're something else fella! I can't tell if you're a troll or just low on the IQ chart.


8.) 14 Oct 2017 16:31:41
I just feel we were there for the taking and offered little in attack, so why not add attackers instead of swapping them? I can remember when SAF would have four strikers on near the end of a game when we needed the win. Just think Klopp should have went for it more. Especially considering our attack were struggling and we weren't committing anyone forward. I'd be disappointed as a Liverpool fan. I don't see why it matters about not conceding or having so much possession, that was inevitable by the way we set up. I think you guys missed a trick.


9.) 14 Oct 2017 16:38:57
Having too many strikers crowds the box and harder to find a gap. Also makes us more vulnerable to counter. Not to mention offers up the possibility of losing the battle in the middle of the field where we're dominating and offers less players to create the chances for the strikers. So like for like is usually for fresh legs.

{Ed025's Note - too many strikers but not one can hit a bulls arse with a banjo..


10.) 14 Oct 2017 16:44:44
JBLP, I'm very disappointed Jose parked the bus as I have clearly stated above. However if I was a Liverpool fan I'd question why Klopp didn't take advantage of the situation by adding more attackers to the attack. There's only one manager smiling right now mate and it's certainly not Klopp.


11.) 14 Oct 2017 16:51:05
aoe - I mean against past opposition too, this season Klopp has replaced man for man instead of pushing for that equaliser or winner by adding attackers for the last 15 minutes.

I don't think there was much danger of a counter today from us towards the end. I would have chucked extra attackers on. Add Sturridge to Countinho and Salah. Sacrifice Can or Henderson.


12.) 14 Oct 2017 16:56:13
sydney's profile pic is a selfie LOL.


13.) 14 Oct 2017 17:03:35
I agree with you Roy. after watching the game I'm disappointed to not take three points. But honestly before the game you were expecting anything more than a draw? I don't think so.


14.) 14 Oct 2017 17:39:57
Honestly Midge, I did expect 3 points because we are at home 7 points behind and their striker have bad record against us . did you not expect them to park the bus? I did a lot of us did, Klopp would've expect it as well . Never mind, on to mid week now and we should be aiming for 3 points .


15.) 14 Oct 2017 17:55:03
we were the better team, utd wanted a point by the looks of things, same old story if we were a bit more ruthless and clinical upfront might have walked away with the full 3 points. We have been poor up top for a while.


16.) 14 Oct 2017 19:23:12
Sydney, why change a formation/ system that's penned in the league leaders, getting fresh legs, slightly different skill sets up front could, should of worked, weakening the mid to add more bodies up front could of cost us the match I think it was the right call today.


17.) 14 Oct 2017 19:27:33
Fair enough Sydney. To be honest I was actually answering as a general rule to your question of supstitutions. Totally agree ed25. As I do with most of your hilarious posts. That said, de gea's save was phenomenal. (Reason he's my no 1 in galactic team) Any other keeper concedes today. We score- match changes. As it is, klopp believed what we were doing was working so he simply injected fresh legs where he could in the belief that we'd break them down. Didn't happen but that's mourinho tactics for you. Ugly but terribly effective.


18.) 14 Oct 2017 19:40:23
You lot really need to read what sydney is saying coz he is bang wright we should of went for the kill.


19.) 14 Oct 2017 20:03:30
But you didn't "Pen us in", we had no interest in attacking your goal. We parked the bus. So sacrifice a midfielder and ADD Sturridge to Coutinho and Salah in place of Can or Henderson. We only committed Lukaku and Rashford forward in the 2nd half. Just my opinion, but considering Liverpool cannot deal with parked buses, it's klopp's job to come up with solutions. The obvious one in my opinion is add more attackers. What did you have to lose? One point or three? Anyway, it's just my thoughts on where I believe Klopp is going wrong. Because many will play this way against you this season and unless Coutinho scores a 40 yard screamer every week, you need a solution.

{Ed025's Note - fair point sydney..


20.) 14 Oct 2017 21:20:05
Sydney I think you are right, but it's not like we didn't have enough chances to win the game. On another day we score one or two, I don't think it that's big a deal really. Maybe in a month when our fortunes are better we take them chances! Like I said the creativity is there, just at this time the chances aren't being converted.


21.) 14 Oct 2017 22:12:56
Midge, I guess it is early days just 8 games in, but how long do you wait before you make changes. United went a whole season struggling to convert chances last season, Liverpool cannot afford a 5th place finish or below. Be very hard attracting decent players with Coutinho money without the pull of CL football.


22.) 15 Oct 2017 08:54:42
Midge3, I cannot believe Mourinho's reasoning for not getting 3 points! He says that because Klopp did not change the midfield in the match it didn't give them an opportunity to attack. Wow i mean how ridiculous is that! You're absolutely right in saying that he is like Pulis with money!


23.) 15 Oct 2017 08:59:22
Sydney, so we place more attackers into a crowded box and then they start geting into each other's way and then we get caught out and concede on the counter. What would you say? You would be the one saying that Klopp should have just kept the point and ove on to the next game. Pls, the hindsight stuff is pointless as it adds nothing to the debate.

Klopp was smart enough to know that in big games, if you can't win the game, you should not lose it. That is what Klopp did and tho he wanted to win and on another day, we do, you hold on to the point and move on.

Utd were the fav's today and frankly, they choked and just played a Tony Pulis and moved on. That is Mou's choice BUT he should not be peeved when he is slated for playing stoneage footie. The only improvement I see from this game in comparison to last season's game is that we created more chances BUT again, did not take them. On to Spurs.

Question for anyone with the knowledge. Why is it that in England (the home of the premier league) we can only watch half the matches played. Yet in Europe channels like beINsports, and in the states channels like NBCSports have license to show all premier league games? Surely Skysports and BT Sport have the power to do the same.

Midge3

{Ed002's Note - No, they have no power to show live matches at the traditional kick off time of 1500. Clubs don't want that changed.}


1.) 23 Sep 2017 10:29:47
Same as we can get all nfl games for like 112 pound. No chance of us impacting attendances.

If 3pm kick offs where televised would you bother going the game for Liverpool vs hull?


2.) 23 Sep 2017 11:44:16
Top

If you are a liverpool fan and has tickets with you! You go to the liverpool game! Simple as that!


3.) 23 Sep 2017 11:49:17
I wouldn't mind an LFC channel that played all our matches but an hour or so later. Would save trying to find a decent site that's showing it.


4.) 23 Sep 2017 11:49:59
What? πŸ˜‚ of course I'd bother going. What kind of a question is that?

If that is the genuine reason for the 3pm kick offs not being televised it is absolutely ridiculous. By that logic, we'll be playing Leicester in a half empty stadium tonight. Because why would you go to Leicester vs Liverpool if it's on BT?

I highly doubt that is the reason, and if it is, the Premier League clubs are just shafting their supporters YET AGAIN for (a completely irrational) fear of losing a few extra quid.

Not having a go at you TB, but i sincerely hope the clubs have a much better reason for not wanting the 3pm games televised than the fact that the fans who can't afford to or couldn't get tickets to go to the game, would get to enjoy watching the sport they are funding. That would be a disgusting revelation in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - it is the reason, but not because of Prem teams, it is the lower league teams that would lose attendances.}


5.) 23 Sep 2017 12:09:24
I hadn't considered that actually Ed. I suppose for a lower league club, whose fans probably all have a favourite Premier League team as well, it could potentially be harmful. I still think it is an irrational fear though. And if it did prove to be an issue, the premier League could always filter some of its astronomical cash flow down into the lower divisions to make up for the few hundred pounds they might lose on gate receipts!

Our (the fans) money pays for this entire industry and they are withholding a part of the product, to protect their own cash. I find that morally wrong but perhaps I'm just over reacting. For people like me though who don't have a Premier league club within 70 miles of where i live it is just a bit gutting there is no football at 3pm on a Saturday. If it is the small clubs who are worried, why not show one of the 3pm games from the football league? I'd rather watch Bradford vs Colchester than Jeremy Kyle!

I think the fans are being robbed a bit now i know the reason behind this decision.

{Ed001's Note - they know it is harmful as they lose gate when the local big team is at home anyway.}


6.) 23 Sep 2017 12:16:28
I'm really angry about this now πŸ˜‚ at 3 o'clock when i have to sit and listen to Jeff Stelling, Matt Le Tissier and Phil Thompson commentating poorly on the games around the grounds, i will just be burning up inside knowing that i could be watching Burnley and Huddersfield draw 0-0 πŸ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - don't worry mate, just be thankful I get to watch them all.....}


7.) 23 Sep 2017 12:50:09
Git! Take me to Dubai with you!

9.) 23 Sep 2017 13:35:01
If LFCTV did that Mikey I’d even take out a subscription to the channel. I can’t see any reason why they couldn’t.


10.) 23 Sep 2017 13:27:00
The Football League have just signed a deal where all midweek games are to be shown live on the individual teams websites, is that correct? That is great for fans who can't travel due to work commitments, however they are not showing weekend games. This is to protect attendances. I would assume they are getting subsidised for losing maybe a few hundred seats during the week but care not so much when they are getting paid for it.
The problem is that midweek games in the Premier League are shown on tv, but by different providers. We'd lose more money from tv deals from sky, bt etc than we would gain by streaming our own matches. A bit of extra traffic, maybe subscription fees. I'd be interested though. Paying one subscription for my sport would be better.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Sky will be streaming football league games for clubs - obviously this is nothing to do with Liverpool at this time.}


11.) 23 Sep 2017 13:30:11
Of course I'd go.
The live match experience is infinitely better than watching on TV. That will never change 🀝.


12.) 23 Sep 2017 13:57:21
Ed I'll take you to watch 50 shades of red πŸ˜‰.

{Ed001's Note - is that a real thing? Actually I probably don't want to know what it is thinking about it!}


13.) 23 Sep 2017 14:17:13
I hope it isn't a real thing. I dare not google it though πŸ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - I will let Harry do the googling.}


14.) 23 Sep 2017 17:18:16
You all are invited to the states to watch all the games, NBCSN and NBC televise them all. I pay for a higher DirecTV subscription to watch LFC. Out of curiosity does anyone know how much NBC pays for the rights to broadcast the Prem?

{Ed002's Note - It is on a sliding scale and the NBC contract cannot be compared to other broadcasters as it is a six year deal rather than a three year deal. In total the amount is $940M and change.}

2.) 14 May 2017 16:25:41
Not fussed about brandt think e said he doesn't ant Rolfe unless he's guarenteed a start - not the player I like. Would love Keita and peirera though. Know nothing of Luan and it going to pretend I've even heard of him before.


3.) 14 May 2017 16:26:30
Robertson to that as Peirerra is for rightback and cover for Left back. Would be a great summer if Luan hit the ground running.


4.) 14 May 2017 16:55:24
Fencey,

To be fair to Brandt, he isn't saying it like he should be first choice I don't think. I more see it as a young player wanting to make sure he gets enough football in his formative years.

That's wise, not poor character.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want Brandt (as do Bayern if Douglas Costa leaves) but Brandt has made it clear he does not want to be sat on the bench which makes it difficult for him to move to either side.}


5.) 14 May 2017 17:09:32
87, just to clarify, what I meant was that I'd like players willing to fight and earn a spot.


6.) 14 May 2017 17:15:16
Luan isn't as class as some like to make out, but he is very versatile and dynamic which personally I think would suit our play style of a very free form front three.


 

 

26 Sep 2016 14:17:28
I heard on sky sports news this morning that, we have yet to score a premier league goal with a reconsider striker. That's impressive considering we have 16 goals to our talk so far. When you look at other top clubs such as city, United, and Chelsea, they all have a striker providing the most part of there goals. So I was just thinking imagine we could get sturridge or origi in the team consistently scoring, and how much of a difference that would make to our title chances. The fact we are already considered such an offensive threat without an inform striker just excites me so much for this season and beyond.

Midge3

1.) 26 Sep 2016 15:24:54
Firmino is a striker.


2.) 26 Sep 2016 15:49:57
Problem is, I wouldn't dare change things at the moment, we're doing so well. Keep it How it is, it's working.


3.) 26 Sep 2016 16:18:03
Didn't we have recognised striker for the past 100 years plus? Yet this team has outgunned them all at this stage of the season.


4.) 26 Sep 2016 17:45:03
Frimino is a striker, Mikey is right. The clue is him playing up front.


5.) 26 Sep 2016 17:52:18
Agree with Mikey that Firmino is a striker.

However, I am pleasantly surprised with how we have spread the goals around - in the league we have 4 players with 3 goals (Countino, Lallana, Mane and Milner) with Firmino then weighing in with 2 so far. That's 14 of our 16 league goals from 5 different players. Gives us plenty of strength in depth should one or two either be injured or off the boil (excepting Milner of course, we NEEED him! ) .

Another reason to be happy :)


6.) 26 Sep 2016 21:36:57
Ings is the only striker who could match the Firmino up top in terms of work rate

Origi was quality when he came in last season looks to me he is a big confidence player (maybe due to age) dunno if he could match the two above for closing down

Sturrdige has the quality but not the bottle or work rate.

I think your all to quick to blame Karius! Yes he made a complete hash of the 4 th goal, but the rest I wouldn't of expected him to save. The second was low and I'm the corner I don't think your apreciating how hard it is to get down that quick, the third, matey on there team had time to control it and get a shot away! Poor defending in my opinion. I think our problem with conceding is our defensive structure! It's all well and good pressing high up the pitch but once they have possession in our half we should adapt a more organised defensive structure. If you watch the other top teams when defending even against the small teams they are well organised and drilled.

Anybody else seen his positioning while we are on the attack? It's rather exciting yet nervy at the same time. He's always no more than 15 yards behind the cbs, really compliments how intense our pressing game really is.

Why wouldn't we? It's good, entertaining, and informative. Sheds light between the real stories and the crap you read on Facebook pages. Plus they where talking very positively about Liverpool and said, imagine if Juergen klopp had spent the same amount as the other big clubs how much better Liverpool would be doing compared to the likes of city. They where complementing us for being at the same standard without having to spend rediculous amounts.

It amazes me that after such a great result and a fine performance, the main talking point on everyone's mind is the oppositions goal! Which turned out to not be very costly at all. Can't we just enjoy a great performance that on a even better day could have seen us net at least 3 more goals? And let the coaching staff concentrate on the mistake which I'm sure they will.

Big al, your satisfied with him? Ahahah he can press I'll give you that, but what else? Always passing sideways occasionally looks for the killer pass but never. ever delivers! Average at best! I'm not saying he's bad, but could certainly improve.
