Having Keita in midfield will make a massive difference to pressing. Think when he played he was easily the best presser?
Fab in midfield will give the back four more protection. And even more of a goal threat.
Jota ... Clearly will add more to our attack but a lot will depend on the...
I know this will piss people off. That I'll be called a leftie. Tree hugger. PC police etc etc but ...
Find some of the comments directed at dave holland out of line. Just too far imo.
Taking about him being on crack. Him being on ice. I take offence.
As an avid user of drugs I feel I need...
First thing I'd do if I were Klopp would be to drop Bobby, Thiago for Jota, Keita.
Play a front 2 of Salah & Mane with Jota in behind them.
Ideally you'd have Fab and Gini holding midfielders with Keita in front of them.
But ... we'll trot out the same formation and the same tactics...
Kabak out of Fulham game. Unbelievable.
Thought he was one of the shining lights against Chelsea. Played really well imo. His passing, for large parts, was really good. It seemed to me that it was Fabinho getting done out way more than him.
Did you have a problem with FSG when we first made the EL final, the CL final, won the CL, and then won the EPL? Were you complaining about their approach then?
Comparing us against Spurs & Arsenal is stupid considering that they're notorious for NOT spending, and both clubs are somehow...
Spot on this. And for a United supporter to be speaking sense on this top says a bit ... it's clear as day imo and I'm absolutely astounded that some LFC are trying to concoct some fantasy that Klopp's fighting with the owners rather than just looking at the facts.
What exactly is he fighting with the board about?
Last summer he got Jota, Thiago (against the usual FSG model), Tki the left back. The ONLY area we didn't strengthen in was CB and that was more about getting the right player in rather than spending.
During the winter window we dropped the...
Nail on the head really.
It's been the perfect storm. Injuries haven't helped, but across the board we've just been making the wrong decisions as the wrong time. The "Turn doubters to believers" line is great, but that starts at the top.
If the players are questioning the owners, and they...
Don't know about your one but I don't think the one against us was handball personally. Earlier in the season it would've been given, but when they changed the rules etc. And i think that's fair enough personally. Only talking about the Liverpool one though.
I honestly can't believe he brought Salah off and left Bobby on.
Brought Ox on infront of Keita.
Then brought Milner on.
We were poor. But we've been playing like this for a while. We needed a bit of luck. Someone to stand up above the rest but no one's doing this. We've put all...
It's like we get to the final 3rd and ... freeze. So many times players like Mane & Salah made the runs but we just pulled it back. Ordinary. We're playing scared. SOmeone has to grow balls and win this game for us.
Will say it again though.
Fuckign Trent defensively. Has to do so so much more for their goal. Fabs in front of him, and it's clear which way Mount is goign to go. Why the fuck Trent doesn't come in to support Fab on that one, who fucking knows. Shit defending.
No way was that offside. Sorry. Should be 2-0 Chelsea. Find such close calls on VAR stupid as the attacking side really should be given the advantage. We're lucky as hell.
Poor from us. Poor. Lacking any real creativity. Final pass is poor. Yet again. Robbo & Trent's distribution is shoddy...
Fucking hell. Speaker. I call for the help honourable member of Dinkum to be escorted off the premises due to talking compete and utter bollocks.
Cinnamon donuts superior. Why I never.
Out with the. Out
Anything can happen in a derby. Anything.
Of course City are clear favourites but they've already won the title. This game won't make a difference on them winning the EPL. Massive underdogs. I think you'll get them.
Team morale seems to be very good. All players working together for the...
Actually felt a little bit sorry for Bruno watching that game. It was like the whole team turned to him to do something, and he simply was overplaying his hand. Again. And again. And again.
He was dreadful but i actually don't blame him. You all looked gassed.
In saying this, massive game...
Seeing Klopp talking up Fab being back tomorrow night and potentially playing CM?
It's weird as I wasn't at all impressed by the CBs on the weekend. Phillips was OK but I personally didn't see anything great. Kabak ... was a ticking timebomb. Together they lacked leadership imo.
Ha remember the days of Pongolle, Le Tallec, Cheryou?
Man-o-man. I'd say those two would be a big step up on our previous French signings. I'm still bitter we didn't re-sign Anelka. Terrible decision that was.
Let's be honest though. There's no way either of those two are playing for us ;)
Agree. Of course there's much more going on and one player can't be lumped with the responsibility of one teams success.
However, I'm glad you've at least acknowledged that he needs to do more. That I do agree with you
Mate. You literally made the worst attempted point ever and aren't man enough to admit it. Kind of expected you to at least acknowledge it but I guess ... ?
Either way. Delusion is a funny thing. Hope you snap out if it some time soon lol
So .. by that logic .. we could put Phil Jones into our team as he'd walk into it right now. He really would.
That makes him worldclass. Doesn't it?
Shit. I knew we should've made a play for the great Phil Jones! Maguire also. Definitely a worldclass player by how you judge them.
And I'm a...
Salty salty. The self-proclaimed God of trolling seems to be getting a bit upset LOL
Why are you deflecting? What has Bruno starting in the Liverpool team got to do with anything?
The question is whether Bruno is world-class. It's got nothing NOTHING to do with Liverpool.
Your obsession with...
What facts do I need?
0-0 against the top clubs.
United 1 goal against the top 6
Is that your definition of a super-star attacker like you say? Again, you'll make a rant about how I'm saying Bruno is shit ... but that's not what I'm saying. I'm simply saying he's not the superstar...
Sometimes I don't think you can read mate.
I've shown you comments from United pundits saying that he hasn't stood up in the big games. I've shown you newspaper articles saying the same thing. Bruno's form has clearly dropped off in comparison to the first part of the year when he was on fire...
100% agree. Just writing for the sake of writing really.
Think it also makes the opposition play at our #7 more potentially leaving space for other players to leave their mark. Flannagan does all the kicking ... so they always rush him but you'd hope that Barrett starts getting other players...
Think the question is ... why not?
Good for marketing them. Building potential interaction between players & supporters. Greater brand awareness.
The question is why shouldn't they tell fans where they train?
Hahahaha it gets better and better.
Have a lie down mate. Go speak to your family and friends. Take a breather.
Bruno will turn world-class soon enough mate. Just be patient. Until then. Just relax a little. You're so so wound up ... by everything!
Let me slow this down for you my friend. As it's clear you're a little slow.
You've made a claim. A statement. That Bruno is world-class. Fair enough.
I've come back saying that world-class means that you need to show up in the big games. Which I think is fair enough. I mean. A stats padder...
Obsesssed much? LOL
On current form, no one in the Liverpool team is world-class. There's no doubt about that. No one is in world-class form.
Do we judge players on a good or bad 6 months or so though? Apparently some people do, but I certainly don't.
Each to their own though.
It's OK mate. Think everyone can see what you are, so I'm OK with that.
You've tried to paint me in a certain way but you're wrong.
You, again, trying to make this a United / Liverpool thing when it clearly isn't.
Shame as I thought you were grown up enough to have a discussion but OK...
You disappoint me Coach. You really do.
Your bias clouds how you speak. Your irrationality clouds your views.
You're making out that I hate the guy. That I don't rate him. That's it all about a United player. That I'm pinning your results on him.
Honestly. It's embarrassing seeing you this...
This isn't a pop at anyone, just reinterates the point I was trying to make. Obviously means fuck all to Liverpool considering how shit we're playing, and that we're 6th? But with United, it's something that you've got to be concerned about. And backs up what I was saying about Bruno ... the...
Good signs. Worrying ones also if I'm honest. Defensively we were lacking and would've got punished against a slightly better side.
Going to be a real battle for the top 4. Massive challenge ahead.
Need our front 3 to start firing.
Does anyone know about Jota? Is he OK?
Firstly. Who said Bruno is shit? Don't put words into my mouth because I'm a big fan of Bruno. Start of year he was exceptional, but he's dropped off even tho for whatever you don't want to admit that.
And again you deflect. Make comparisons. Talk about anything BUT Bruno.
You made the...
Wow. Makes a comment about United player, and a fair comment I might add, then United supporters rants and deflects talking about Liverpool. Who cares about Liverpool? What does Liverpool have to do with Bruno?
You have, on numerous occasions, said that Bruno is world class and the best...
You clearly have no idea what I'm talking about but that ok ... Lol.
Let's not forget that I made clear points about Bruno and instead of answering those you simply went on about mid table whatever.
Your bias gets in the way of a good discussion mate. You think people are attacking you when...
United fans taking glory out of getting 0-0 results. LOL.
Salty it seems old mate. Salty :) hahaha
We're talking about Bruno's performance against those teams. The attacking masterclass. Best midfielder in the EPL. This majestic player took you to four 0-0 results and you're praising him it...
Funny thing mate. You know the truth about Bruno but get so wound up by anyone critising him that you defend him to the hilt.
Your bias gets in the way of calling it how it is. Shame. But I know the truth as do most non-bias people.
Bruno is an exceptional talent but he's gone missing in big...
Didn't know this, and fear most Australians don't either.
We, as a nation, like to call out racism but unfortunately our very existance is rooted in it. Only when we recognise, and I mean truly recognise the unspeakable deads of our forfathers will we be able to honestly say that we're against...
Win is a win.
Someone on here was harping on about Kabak being average. He was made to look very average today. Needs a baby sitter which I guess Hendo was? Ball watching. Wrong side of the man. We play that CB pairing against Chelsea and they'll absolutely destroy us.
But ... we did enough...
Injured for this game:
That's 6 starters.
And three of their backups who would've replaced those injured.
Add Keita who hasn't played a min for however many weeks. Milner the same.
Mad season. Just gotta get a win...
No change ... in anything really from Klopp? We don't get a result here ...
Thought we'd at least start with Keita or Ox or something different. Front 6 have done didely squat the past however many games.
First 10 mins will be telling. Get an early goal please ... Liverpool that is!
Allison not starting it seems? Fair enough.
19th new CB pairing? Seems as though it's Kabak and the new guy? Forgotten his name!
Whichever way, I don't think the game will be won or lost in the CBs. Gotta get those attackers going!
Surprised you weren't given that penalty btw. Seen that called a few times this year already, so not sure why that wasn't. His had wasn't in a natural position in my mind so surely that's a penalty.
You lot playing OK though
I'm just going to start with a goal!
We don't win today, against the team coming last, when we've absolutely got out backs against the wall and need a result. We lose ... then the shit really will hit the fan!
Imagine Keita will start. Which is good. Would be nice to see Jota but imagine...
Your mum been telling you about the size of my brain again? Doesn't surprise me as she definitely wouldn't be talking about the size of my cock to you! That'd just be embarrassing :) Though I guess you probably should've guessed by the way she was talking ... :)
