Another 2 points for the UEFA Club coefficient rankings. Struggling because of a blank 2016/17.

10th in the 5 year ranking, on 99 points. United 9th on 100, Sevilla 8th on 102.

Next up West Ham at home 31st at 17.30, then Atalanta away November 3 at 20.00.

5 games in November. Two against Atalanta, City away, Leicester home, Brighton away.

The squad is going to be tested. Hopefully the international break, 8th - 21st, will be uneventful.

New boy Diogo Jota got the privilege of scoring LFC's 10,000th goal in all competitions last night.

Pleased for Gomez and Phillips. They did a job. Williams should be pushing for a start as well.

Biggest game of the season so far, and Liverpool go with four forwards. Mad and brilliant.

Whatever happened to one up front and ten behind the ball?

There's only four club teams in world football who would have the nerve, and the players, to attempt that. :D

What with the unexpected penalty miss by KDB and the way the game shaped up in the second half, I was pretty content with the point in the end.

If you'd have asked me after 20 minutes I'd have predicted a comfortable win for the Reds.

Matip was awful ,his passing was terrible. Wijnaldum wasn't much better in midfield. Hurry up back Virgil, Thiago and Fabhino.

Checking the latest injury news, the thought struck; we may win the league by less than 18 points this season. :)

This is from today's Sunday Times.

I love data analytics. It's difficult to quantify desire, passion and good/bad luck but the results are fun.

This is from a company, ai abacus, rating players according to chemistry/playing style/ and "fit".

Image

Their software predicts Jonathan Tah, a protegee of Hamburg, signed by Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 as the best prospect.

Second is Lukas Klosterman, third is Dayot Upamecano both of RB Leipzig*.

Sad news about Ray Clemence.

A great servant to the club and also a very nice bloke, Always took the time to say hello to us when being escorted through our Stewards office on match days - today's players could learn a lot from the likes of Clem and Cally.

RIP Ray.
A Gentleman indeed.
He spoke at a Trade dinner for us, very approachable and affable, very nice man.
Shanks bought him for a bargain £18k , we paid £67 million for Becker, I reckon Ray would be in excess of that in this market.

I remember it well, we were not long married, I was 22
We had a young Finnish student staying with us and I took him on the Kop.
He later became the biggest boss in one of the World’s largest forest products companies. He never forgot us and always remembered being at Anfield. K

Nice tributes from Spurs yesterday too.

Dan - that Leicester defeat was actually in January 1981...

https://www.lfchistory.net/SeasonArchive/Game/1196


Great performance from the Reds yesterday.
Pressure game against a supposed title rival ended up like a training run out for a much changed side.
Got the impression they thought Milner at RB may have been the weak link as every time Schmeichel took a goal kick he went that way - guess again Brendan; Millie was immense (as usual).

Shocker tonight.
We've all said give the kids, well none of them took that chance tonight. Origi , Salah and Mane were also poor.
How different to the Leicester game.
No chance of resting players against Ajax next week and an early game at Brighton first.

That was abysmal. What has Minamino done that he cannot get a game ahead of Origi? I was not impressed by Tsimikas either. At least it cannot possibly get any worse than that on Saturday.

Thought the plan was supposed to be to secure qualification, and possibly win the group, THEN rest players in the last 2 games.

Woeful performance tonight.

4 attempts on goal. 0 on target. 3 off target. 1 blocked.

Look at the actual positions the team took up during the game.

Liverpool's midfield ( Milner, Wijnaldum and Jones) were playing on the centre spot.

In attack, Mane and Origi could have been running in a three - legged race. (See Below)

Image

Atalanta played a recognisable 3 - 4 - 3. In effect, Liverpool were 4 - 1 - 2.

Tsimikas was the only Liverpool player on the left side of the pitch, i.e. hung out to dry.

Maybe just a plan gone wrong.

Hopefully normal service resumed Saturday against Brighton.

Just read the Echo analysis and they refer to the “ lamentable Spanish referee”
I thought he was good, he stood no nonsense and kept the game moving , didn’t tolerate “ tripping over feathers “ or “floor gymnastics “
Maybe the reporter was trying to appease us Reds on an abysmal night, no point , spit it out, move on.
