Before we all get carried away, we're just not that good apart from our front three. And one of them, Mane, is out of form. The best team won. Well done, the Albion.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 22:15:36
Yeah hats off to Albion.

First Rodriguez goal was a great finish as was Firmino's.

We were woeful all over the pitch for 70 plus minutes though, gutless!

2.) 27 Jan 2018 22:18:12
that is all true Rigsby.

I am waiting for the tree huggers on here to tell us how great we are.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 22:19:49
Rodriguez looking like back to his best, played as did West Brom. Fully deserved victory for a well organised side. Losing Jonny Evans is massive for them.

4.) 27 Jan 2018 22:20:00
We need to turn this around sooner rather than later. 18 games unbeaten will mean sweet fa if we now go on last Jan-mar form.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 22:24:06
Pitifully inept midfield and Mignolet once again conceded more shots than he saved.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 23:47:23
We deserved nothing from that game, just like the swansea game.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 23:56:24
Midfield failed us again. But let’s be patient as much of the fan base tell us.

How many times do you think we'll hear the phrase 'park the bus' before next Saturday?


1.) 07 Oct 2017 13:09:33
Thing is, they won't do that next weekend. They'll come for our necks.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 13:09:56
A lot less than after Saturday if the result don’t go our way.

3.) 07 Oct 2017 21:27:36
They'll attack from the off, hoping for an early goal, then sit back and soak up the pressure.

If they get the early goal we'll have no chance.

4.) 07 Oct 2017 23:58:28
Could really change our season if we beat them. I think if we don't score in the first twenty minutes it could get quite difficult. I think we are as good as them and we tend to raise our game against the top sides.

5.) 08 Oct 2017 07:33:24
There are really no ways of reading into these types of games as to what may happen or not. IMO, I think Mou will not resist the notion to sit deep at least in the first 20 minutes to see how things shake down and then see what happens from there. It's who he is and what he does. In our situation right now, I would take a point and then move on from there vs Spurs who we generally do well against. Just my take.

6.) 08 Oct 2017 10:06:10
Following bingo's comment. We all know what mourinho is like. I also see him settings the team up to sit deep and take our pressure in the early stages and maybe get a break for lukaku to jump on. I just hope our boys can handle him and with the way he is in form right now. What I think we need to do, is try to play freely but open the play and wait patiently for a gap, not go too early. But hopefully klopp will have a plan.

7.) 08 Oct 2017 13:35:32
I hope so too, SI09.

8.) 09 Oct 2017 14:00:32
United won't park the bus until they are at least 2 goals clear. With pace on the wings and Lukaku's conversion rate in the centre, why risk and open game when they will get multiple chances by keeping their defence tight? We have to be ready to expose the lack of pace in their CB's and our CB's have to be paying attention to their goal scoring threats which are not far from ours, and in much better form.



28 Feb 2017 09:10:40
I think Gary Neville summarised our performance well last night when he asked 'where was the energy'.
We all know that we are very likely to concede soft goals and pack the team with midfielders. But when all those midfielders don't put the effort in we end up with a shambolic performance like at Leicester. And Hull. And Sunderland etc.
It's a massive part of our game and if we don't put it in we end up dominating the stats- possession, attempts (usually long range), corners etc. except for the one that really matters.
I hate it when we don't even compete. Hate it!


{Ed002's Note - The energy was left in Spain after Klipperty had the players do another pre-season when they could have had a break.}

1.) 28 Feb 2017 09:53:43
Surely a "pre-season" at this stage of the season should be a doddle because the players should already be at peak fitness.
Why do they need a break?
I agree with the "pre-season" because if you're not playing for 16 days you will lose fitness.
It's different if it's a "winter break" because every team is in the same boat.

{Ed002's Note - So it was a doddle Ron, no one came back with muscle injuries and Liverpool dominated their first game back. I appreciate that Klipperty is someone the Liverpool fans get the Kleenex out for, but he remains a long, long way from being a top class coach.}

2.) 28 Feb 2017 13:27:29
Reminds me of Brendan sending Sterling to Jamaica for a mid week break lol.

3.) 28 Feb 2017 13:59:09
Which means we should have increase energy levels after recovering from this Leicester exertion for Arsenal? That should further reinforced our RobinHood status in bpl as anti flat track bully.

4.) 28 Feb 2017 14:28:56
It can't be argued. Liverpool looked done last night. I wonder what Souhampton done in their 2 weeks off?



04 Dec 2016 23:40:02
Does anyone else think that Emre Can is too slow? I don't just mean physically. He can't compensate for it like an Alonso or a Jan Molby with his technique, so he ends up taking half a dozen touches when two will do.
Lovren is just too slow.
And how hard can it be to find a half decent goalkeeper?


1.) 05 Dec 2016 01:09:53
So after our second defeat, Can, who was excellent in the game, is now too slow?

2.) 05 Dec 2016 08:40:01
He can be lethargic at times but it's really his mental game that is his weakness, not really any of his physical attributes. If he had the tactical nous of a good midfielder he wouldn't have to be quick, but he doesn't. I would say can is improving going forward but offers very little defensively as he has done pretty much since he's been here. I hope he improves that part of his game otherwise midfield is an area we will definitely have to highlight as a problem area in the summer, I would have summer before this season tbh but manager thought differently.

3.) 05 Dec 2016 18:28:20
No, Hamilton Red, he was too slow before the game; I never mentioned yesterday's game.
He's not a bad player but we play a high tempo game and he lacks pace over the first five or ten yards and takes too long on the ball before getting us going forward.

4.) 05 Dec 2016 19:02:17
I don't think he's slow, but sometimes he does take the momentum out of a counter attack.



16 Oct 2016 09:15:09
I'd like the views of Eds and other Reds on Gary Neville's comments. He reckons we try and blow teams away early but could struggle later against United's power if we haven't done so on Monday.
He has a point-I do think we can look lightweight and United do have some powerful lads- but what's to stop us addressing that with substitutions?
If we did start to flag, we could bring on the likes of Can, Lucas, Grujic, Origi, Klavan (and move Milner further forward) who haven't been starting and are all six footers or thereabouts.
Your thoughts, please.


1.) 16 Oct 2016 09:57:32
I can't believe I'm going to say this but Neville has a point. The main thing for us Monday night is patience. Yes Liverpool are going to hit them wave after wave but we also have to be patient the longer it takes us to score. Utd have no game changers in the squad we have plenty so I'm quietly confident Red's.

2.) 16 Oct 2016 10:05:41
He's right when he says we do try and blow teams away early. That was always a tactic that Shanks and Paisley advocated - try and get a shot on goal early, put your opponents on the back foot. It's a good tactic IMO.

I don't know what he perceives as "United's power"? They have some quick players who, if they come on against tired teams, can have an effect but they are nothing special.

We didn't blow Arsenal away early, we didn't blow Chelsea away early and we didn't blow Swansea away early - we still won those games. We are not one trick ponies.

I have only 2 concerns for this game:
1) Rooney: he is always inspired for games against us and he is currently receiving loads of flack, so he will be hugely up for this game.
2) If we faff about with it in defence we will come a cropper. I would limit the team to 3 touches in our own defensive third of the field before it has to go long.

3.) 16 Oct 2016 10:39:17
Not sure I subscribe to Neville's comments. I expect us to have more of the ball, in turn working United harder. If anything I expect United legs to go as the game wears on. Purely mind games from Neville.

4.) 16 Oct 2016 11:02:21
I think he is absolutely right. If we get our shots away early, dominate the first half, and maybe get a goal or two, 99% of the time those are the games we win.

If the other team frsutrate us and it doesn't seem like our day, we panic, shoot from 35 yards and fail to score.

A physical team like united could then capitalise on this in the last 30 minutes of the game while we are demoralized and have switched off.

I think such a scenario is highly likely, especially when that is exactly what happened to us last year against united.

5.) 16 Oct 2016 11:42:12
On the plus side regarding the defense Skerts is gone. In other words no more stupid needless last gasp tackles which resulted in free kicks on the edge of the box putting us under pressure. Phew!

6.) 16 Oct 2016 12:51:22
Our team looks a lot fitter than uniteds.
The game will be tiring for both sides but we should be fresher in the last 10 mins, maybe even grab a 4th or 5th goal near the end against their tired legs ;)

7.) 16 Oct 2016 13:01:11
I'm sorry but United have no game changers is a poor comment, I know we are rivals but you got to say ibra is, Rooney can be, Mata can be, Pogba can be, rashford can be. They may be playing poorly or not to full potential, but they can all change games in an instance.

8.) 16 Oct 2016 13:22:56
We will blow them away inside 30 mins so I wouldn't worry about it 😎.

9.) 17 Oct 2016 00:03:43
Nevilles comments make no sense. Every team tries to blow away the other team in the first twenty minutes of every game in order to grab a foothold in the game. His own Utd teams used to do that especially at home as you always look to set the tone early. This is why as the away team, you want to weather the storm in the first twenty to half hour and then mount your own phase of pressure. He's not teaching anybody anything in this respect. Also, we are also a far fitter team than before and if the coach and players can manage the tempo of the game effectively, we will still have enough in the tank to push on in the final thirty minutes. The guy is preaching to the choir and has taught me absolutely nothing on this topic.

He's a one hit wonder and 'Rock Me Amadeus' was rubbish, anyway.

Leg ache?
Ouch! That takes me back to when I was four.
Can't Lemar play up on his dad's shoulders.

Defensive unit? What defensive unit?
We don't bother with such trivialities!
We outscore everyone.
Without a striker.

I agree with the Eds about Coutinho. He can have that many touches and that much time when he's at Barcelona but we are Liverpool and it's the Premier League. Keep the ball moving. An old Liverpool adage was when the ball stops you invite a challenge.
And stop shooting from anywhere, Pip!
