If the Glazers are reading this, if you must sack Ole, cabbage head Bruce is looking for work?

The utd site is going to light up tonight, never seem them so passive.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - there’s still another 45 and Greenwood to go mate

20 Oct 2021 21:02:09
Seen you on the Utd site 666, its so hard not to laugh and give them real stick. I've always respected their achievements and under Fergus they were formidable. Not been the same since :)
Rashford is the one that could help turn things around what you think?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - RashFord is a stud. Just got a goal as I write. Once he gets match for they’ll be ok mate

20 Oct 2021 20:49:37
The way things are going, we are playing against a team with a new manager on Sunday 🤦.

Hi eds1
Can I get your take on Robo. We can all have an opinion on should he be dropped and let kostas have a good go at it but I really respect your opinion. Am kind of swaying to the idea of dropping him?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - that's not the point, Robbo should not have come back in.}

20 Oct 2021 20:11:25
Think he needs a well earned rest call it dropped or whatever he needs one!

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 20:47:28
Doubt he will be dropped vs united.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I would bet he does.

20 Oct 2021 20:59:00
Kostas has earnt the start, Rob needs to get back to his best, simples.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I agree. If robbo plays on Sunday it sends out the wrong message and a massive kick on the teeth for the form player. Klopp needs to do the right thing.

20 Oct 2021 14:10:34
Big shout out to the team and the officials last night. Didn't buckle under immense pressure :)
Unfortunately some people are only happy with 100% perfection and have been spoiled over the last 2 or 3 years with periods of sustained domination.
How boring would it be if we just rolled every team over by 3 or 4 every game.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 14:27:33
Wasn't brilliant defensively last night but any win over a DS team I'll take (The man just annoys me) I will say and I've said it alright Robbo needs a rest.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 14:32:12
I'm not so fussed about boring if it means we're winning every match easily, but I certainly agree with your sentiment. We weren't at our best and it was far from perfect but an away win against LA LIGA CHAMPIONS (yes, that puts them ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid), who haven't lost a home European match for four years and are a notoriously difficult team to play against.

I'll take the win and not worry too much about anything else, especially as the broader context is that we're on an unbeaten run in all competitions that is our best since the 80s, we're averaging over three goals per match this season and our most recent match before last night was a 5-0 demolition job.

Happy days.

20 Oct 2021 14:56:55
I thought we were bang average all game long in terms of play overall BUT we dug deep and stayed in the game till our chance came and we took it. The penalty for Atleti? I've seen them given BUT I was a clear non call for me cos Jimenez fell over theatrically across Jota to draw the contact. The ref got it right and had the spine to switch his decision and didn't buckle under the abject rants of the Atleti players. Simeone? Not arsed really. He is not obligated to shake hands with anyone even tho, it is a great sporting gesture.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - bang average? Seriously? Utter cack. We dominated the Spanish champions for large portions of the game before the sending off and you call that bang average?}

20 Oct 2021 15:11:05
Hey Ed its hard to believe some of the stuff you have to post on here isn't it?
They didn't touch the ball at home for best part of 15 mins 1st half!
What people want/ expect from this team every game is unsustainable.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - people are just too busy remembering a few short spells to recall the other 85 minutes of a game. They see what they wanted to see so they could have an excuse to whine like little children who didn't get the toy they wanted. It is pathetic. We were excellent against one of the best sides in Europe and dominated the midfield battle but why let that get in the way of a whinge after we won?}

20 Oct 2021 15:25:19
I remember a couple of years ago, the majority of people would write things like "it was a hard fought, ground out, tough game, but we got the 3 points and that's all that matters". Now so many of us are spoilt, that anything less than a 5-0 mauling, is unacceptable.

And I was wondering. Does one show his/ her knowledge of something (say like the game of football) through criticism or praise? Once you're able to answer that, then you're closer to understanding the agenda behind what is written on here, sometimes.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 15:30:37
We're literally averaging 3 goals a game. What are people expecting? 5-0 every game, will that satisfy them. Imagine these guys in the 80's when we lost to some bucket side but still were the best team in England by a country mile.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 15:38:41
Im lucky enough to have supported Liverpool since early 80's and can only compare the feeling I get from this present team as the team back in late 80's going into games knowing we will have a real go and that results by and large are going to be positive. Proud of the attacking style and flair knowing g that rival fans are green with envy at what we have. c'mon guys enjoy what you are witnessing as it won't last forever!

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 15:39:31
Jonesy, we had 83% possession for the first 15-20 minutes, and for the entire first half, Atletico made 160 passes (which is feeble at best, for 45 minutes) . Possession is not everything, but it indicates who is controlling the game and the rhythm. We were that dominant.

It just seems sometimes, on here, that there is just as much an anti-red filter as there is a pro-red filter.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not sure how convincing and dominant a performance that was. Everyone has their own perception and perspective and I appreciate that. We were getting undone by long balls and Alison had at least 3 occasions when he had to bail us out via one on ones with the keeper for me that doesn't constitute domination but as I say it’s all subjective

20 Oct 2021 16:00:16
The last two times we played them they out fought and out thought us. This time Klopp got Simeone’s shortcomings and showed him up for his one dimensional tactics. Thoroughly enjoyed that game. Even at 2-2 I thought we could sneak a win. And I would have taken a 2-2 draw away from home as a good result even before kick off. The fact we did better was all down to our discipline in the second half and their lack of discipline.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 16:18:31
I got to be honest, some of the posts make me wonder if they have watched any of the game at all.

Before the game, if you had offered me a draw I would have taken it. Discounting our current form, they are Spanish champions, at home, with a negative style that is hard to break down. Typically the style we drop points against. Added to that, they have to be the dirtiest team around these days, every 3 passes we have they make a foul. Any touch on them, they dive. So I never expected it to be free flowing football as it’s almost impossible to play that against them.

To go there, and get an ugly win, I’m made up. Showed some bottle when it was against us, wasn’t intimidated, great result. Did exactly what we needed to do and are going to win a damm tough group with games to spare.

Any winning season is made up of memorable games along the way, think we saw one last night for sure. Bring on the mancs Sunday.

20 Oct 2021 16:15:07
I fully agree with you ed0666. Allison was motm and by a distance. We won which of course is the most important thing but we were far from excellent.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t think we were either but as I say it’s all perception and perspective

20 Oct 2021 16:51:47
For all those whining about last night's performance, I'd ask them to pick out one game while Simeone has been manager where Atleti have been outplayed and hammered like we did to Watford at the weekend.
Good luck hunting for that.
That is the measure of what we did last night.
Glorious free flowing football? Of course it wasn't.
We won, deservedly at that.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - nobody’s saying it wasn’t an incredible result mate. I think it wasn’t the Watford performance obviously but as you say this is Diego’s Atleti not been beaten at home in 4 years with Simeone whipping up the crowd at every opportunity and the histrionics of Trippier et al to win in those circumstances was a splendid result. We can’t win sexy all the time. For me I’d rather have a trophy then play well.

20 Oct 2021 17:29:16
Can’t everyone just have their own opinion on the game regardless of whether people thought it was a great performance or not. It’s like loose women on here sometimes.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I wish there were some loose women on here.

20 Oct 2021 17:31:00
Spot on Ed. Possibly one of our best away from home CL results in Klopp's tenure. I'd like to see how either Manc club would fare there. Imagine the snorefest it would be with Tuchel's Chelsea?

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - exactly Flash. People don't realise how lucky they are right now.}

Only on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mate. My Thursdays are tied up with reruns of Jim’ll Fix it.

20 Oct 2021 19:23:03
Ed01, I didn’t think we dominated them. What struck me was that after Naby scored, AM did not look panicked nor did they lose their heads. In fact, those goals was the wake up call they needed to start actually playing footie and when they did, we couldn’t live with them in that first half at times, IMO. They just let us come on to them and as soon as we lost it, they were off. Simple game plan yet we couldn’t figure it out.

I mean AB1 had to bail us out a couple of times in that first half due to the gaps we were leaving behind whenever we lost possession and where it not for him, it’s 4-2 going into half time.

In the second half, we offered very little threat going forward even after the sending off while AB1 had to come out and smother Carrasco or he could have scored again. I know we showed fight and heart to stay in the game and not get lost in the manufactured chaos but to say we dominated them is a stretch, IMO. Just my opinion and you are free to disagree. Cheers, mate.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I do disagree. Completely.}

20 Oct 2021 19:38:22
Spot on Ed66 mate as I said it was fantastic results but a lot of stuff for us to learn from.

They were consistently opening us with long balls despite being one man down that's not a good sign coz will have tougher challenges if we want to win this competition.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 20:46:40
For context. United are getting their arses handed to them at home by Atalanta. Last night was a great result.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - P45 for OFS Monday morning?

20 Oct 2021 11:22:13
Safe to come on here yet? . after that absolute garbage 4 year unbeaten record ending three points lastnite?

Agree10 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 11:44:08
I had to stop looking on here. Some of the negative stuff being spouted was completely ridiculous.

20 Oct 2021 11:45:54
Wait until we lose a game.

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 13:25:31
I believe we are the only team to score three against Atletico in a European tie under Simeone on there own patch, absolute great win last night no wonder he was so devastated.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 14:21:36
It is crazy, @Jadon Havertz. I think I even read - Naby being called dirt. I mean I admit he was poor defensively. But then it is just football and I think a good few were poor defensively. And also, we won!

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 15:03:10
Were we really that poor defensively? Yes, Keira could have been stronger in the challenge. However, he does that and mistimes both challenges we are down to 10 men because, as was in evidence yesterday, they fall down like extras in Platoon!
Yes, Van Dijk got pulled around and out of position but he was up against Griezemann and his hornets. Going forward their movement is incredible and makes mistakes unavoidable.
Trent v Carrasco was a stern test for TAA. Carrasco’s energy levels were off the chart and he exploited the gap every time, hence the introduction of Gomez.
Robbo is sun-par but his par is 8 out of 10. Maybe he does need a rest or maybe he is trying too hard because Tsimikas is that good?
Fabinho should have started. Mane got booted all over the pitch. Bobby’s touch was heavy all night. Salah got handled and still scored twice.
Tough, extremely tough, place to visit. Partisan crowd, crazy manager and skilful, dangerous players. We broke records last night, just bear that in mind. There is always a right to criticise but it needs to be tempered with a touch of realism.
You do not just rock up to the Wanda Metropolitano and walk away without knowing you have been in a battle. Even 2-0 up I knew they were going to hit us hard. And they did.
Anfield is going to be electric in two weeks time!

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 16:02:40
I’m one of Naby’s biggest critics, but I’ll say this, in his defence he played 3 games in 6 days for Guinea, he’s only just back from an injury and he scored a tremendous goal. Yeah he probably could have done better on the goals, but equally there were others who made mistakes that led to the goals.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - 4 games in 10 days I think? He’s not very good in the first place and when you add tiredness into the mix it’s a wonder he scored that goal. I’d be flabbergasted if he starts on Sunday.

20 Oct 2021 18:18:19
Ed the truth is still that if he wasn’t on the pitch we’d not have been 2-0 up. So I’m giving the guy some slack, yeah I’d have preferred we sold him and replaced him in the last window but it didn’t happen, so the best thing to do is support him. I figure he deserves that as a minimum.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - you never know what would have happened had Keita not been on the pitch? We may have won 5-0 with his replacement scoring all 5 or his replacement could have had a stinker. I was actually trying to commend him for playing because of all the game time and travel he’s put in the last 10 days that’s why I said I’d be flabbergasted if he plays on Sunday. I fully expect a Hendo, Fab, Jones midfield. At least Keita has put his injury troubles are behind him it seems which bodes well as we need bodies if where gonna seriously challenge chelsea & city.

20 Oct 2021 20:26:53
The best part was on the live chat last night. Keita was responsible for every mistake and goal, until he went off, then it quickly turned to Milner, Trent, Hendo. 🙄.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 11:21:15
Milner has gotten the rubbishhousery down to an art form. The yellow card was well deserved and he was a thorn in the flesh of the opponents. Thoroughly enjoyed the game just like the Brentford game, but this time we won. Mane needs something, he is still harassing the opposing defends but he needs to start scoring, he needs to be the big game winner again.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 11:47:05
Only 2 players have more Premier League goals than Manè this year! looking at about 25-30 goals in all comps this season if he keeps up his current scoring rate. Terrible for a wide forward alright.

Agree7 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 11:48:12
Erm hasn’t mane scored the opening goal on multiple occasions already this season?

Agree7 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 11:56:48
I think Mane has been very good this season.

Agree8 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 13:55:44
Please find a non exhaustive list of players Sadie Mane has scored more than in the league this season.

Bruno Fernandes
Christiano Ronaldo
Raheem Sterling
Harry Kane
Romelu Lukaku

There’s loads of others too.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Oct 2021 17:07:14
The only players who have scored more (or the same) number of goals as Sadio are Mo, Vardy and Antonio.

Pretty conclusive, no?

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I think the point was he’s not at his blistering best which we all want to see.

20 Oct 2021 17:32:57
Fair enough Ed0666, but if he's still scoring often I'm less worried.

If you can't win well (which we have been doing too! ) then at least win. That's what makes champions.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - By his own admission Mane actually had scans and tests done on his body because he was so alarmed by his form last season. In my opinion although he’s scoring goals he’s only at 70% at best of what he’s capable of. Mane is a stud and he’s on the periphery and it just takes one game to click in to gear and be the unstoppable beast we all know he is!
