Just seen the city 'goal' and its a shocking decision imo.

Whilst he is onside when he tackles mings in the preceding phase he is clearly off (you don't need lines for that one) and as mings controls it its effectively an advantage the ref is playing. But once he is tackled, almost immediately the advantage is over and the whistle should have been blown for a free kick.

They just haven't used any initiative and now each official can hide behind each other which has left us with a mess.

What struck me today was how slow our approach play was as soon as we won the ball back high up the pitch esp in the first half. On several occasions, our midfield would win the ball back high with Utd out of position with gaps all over their defence and instead of the front three being on the move, the play would slow down and Utd would regroup and the move died. That bugged me to death.

One more thing, Bobbie had opportunities to either shoot or play someone in on goal and he always did the opposite. He had Robbo wide with space and chose to shoot aimlessly. He had Mane ope and chose to shoot. Then one last thing. Mane had the ball and checked for Bobbie to make the run in the channel and he just stopped.

Conclusion? The confidence is shot to bits. Normally, our front three play instinctive football. They just attack spaces with prejudice and do damage. There was none if that today esp when the gaps opened up. We are too tentative, trying to be too sure in making decisions and not playing freely in these critical attacking phases, IMO. This is where Klopp may have to shake things up and put Minamino in the next game to give us something different, IMO. We need a spark from somewhere, that's for sure.

Noticed this a few games now, we break down play, catch the opposing team out of position, and immediately the midfield plays the ball sideways or backwards. It's like we wait for the opposition to re align their formation for us to see where the gaps are again but we miss the opportunity of hitting them on the counter which worked very well last season.

Difficult match to call that - I thought overall the team performance level and attitude was great but just missing that urgency and spark. Surprised after all that pre match talk from OGS that we were there for the taking that he didn't go for it, but Fabinho and Henderson were great when called upon.

Got me thinking why it isn't just clicking and I think it's a mixture of everything mentioned:

- Missing big defenders causing team to sit back
- Missing Fabinho influence in midfield
- Perhaps C.V. has had an impact on players who were out with it, as not many players in the prem who had it seem to be back 100% to form

The last thing which doesn't get talked about as much is the lack of fans. I feel that Liverpool are a team that is hugely driven by the fans and that extra bit of game pressure it creates. that's normally what makes world class footballers stand out - their ability to hack it in front of 60k people each week and carve out a performance.

How much do you all think lack of fans is a factor impacting us at the moment?


As a side note the above are not excuses. Many of this is the same for every team in the league. I remember when City were without Fernandinho and then having to play him at CB (similar to our Fabinho situation) so this is just part and parcel of football. But these additional variables to make for a top turvy football season! Fact we are third (pending City game) given our scenario isn't necessarily something to be sneezed at in my humble opinion, and today you could see players are giving it 100%.

Not the result we wanted but considering how we have played the last few weeks and how utd have been playing think a draw isn't so bad. Thiago showing again why we were all so excited to sign him, fantastic today and would like to give fabinho a mention aswell gone from being one of the best midfielders in the league to one of the best centre halfs, remarkable how well he has adapted. Jota can't come back quick enough for me hopefully his return will shake the front 3 up. On to Burnley.

Well there is more proof that Klopp doesn't trust our CB options of Phillips and Williams so instead we play 2 central midfield players in the back 4. Having them 2 in there takes away so much from the midfield area imo. We really need to sign a CB in this window else we will be battling for a top 4 spot. Ok I might be over reacting a little bit it's crystal clear to everyone how much we need central defenders to free up 2 of our best midfield players.

Only positive from today is our still unbeaten home record very poor up front yet again sooner we get our mojo back the better.

3 PL pts from 12. Zero PL wins in four. Zero goals scored in 3 PL games. Something needs to change and change quickly.

Yeah your mindset Rudder, we don't have a god given right to win every game. Our levels over the last 2-3 seasons has been unsustainable.
And now with a season interrupted by injuries and C.V. problems get behind the boys and goals will come.

My mindset is 100%. If you think the last few games have been acceptable you need to take your head out of the sand. Let me guess you're another "SUPER FAN" who wouldn't dare criticise the team 😴😴.
