Nice to be an unbiased contributor here and see it as it is rather than through the usual blue or red tinted glasses.

I hope someone can explain why red fans have wanted to win the title as long as I can remember and now that they have had a good start several, not all, of you are complaining how they are going about it?

I say 'possibility' as history shows that it is really far too early with over ninety points still to play for. Six of them are from the derby games and they can , as we all know, go either way. :lol:

You are having a good phase but, as history also shows, you will have at least one bad one.

Do I detect a note of nervousness after the lucky result at Sheffield. :roll:

Ernie, I don't think you can say that I watch through rose tinted glasses. I have been complaining all season about the standard of football Liverpool are playing. Of course I want them to win,but I would also like to to see them playing with a bit of style. Leicester won the league after years of waiting but you could never have said they were boring to watch. I find it really annoying the number of times Liverpool pass the ball backwards or sideways.
Anyway that is my little rant over for now. :)

I'll always criticise Liverpool if they don't play well whatever the result. I agree with Bill, City are an exciting side going forward, their goal difference shows that but their problem is in defence. Liverpool have, in my opinion, an average midfield we need the Ox back in the side along with Fabinho and another.

The defence played school boy football in the second half they followed the ball and got dragged across leaving a player free on the far post time and time again. Good job the front three were on form.

Liverpool were really slick and a big improvement on recent displays.

I thought they played well against a very good attacking team. Except for his two easy goals Salah was nowhere near his form of last season and has been off for a the last few games but fortunately tonight Mane made up for that with an excellent display.

I mentioned at half time that I thought Liverpools lead was not enough and they needed to score the next goal. Events proved I was right.

They played badly against Sheffield and won but tonight they played well, but only just made it.

I disagree with Eddie in that I thought that Liverpools defence did as well as they were allowed and we should give credit to an excellent attacking side whose heads never dropped.

I doubt if Henry would have made any money from the final score.

I have to disagree with you Ernie that Liverpool played well. The first half was a big improvement,but the second half was back to the way they have been playing this season. The passing was once again dreadful, and I think the standard of passing is embarrassing for a team that are European Champions.
I have to agree about Salah, I think his overall performances have been poor this season.
I now wait for Henry to come on disagreeing as usual,with everything I have said. :(

Ernie I can't see how a defence that let three goals in is playing well. Have a look at the goals again and look at the poor marking. Salah not playing well but scoring goals will do me. :)

It always starts with Henderson going back all the time and he doesn't know how to come forward and for me I would drop and sell him at the first opportunity also Gomez is coming a liability

Ernie
I backed Liverpool to win 5-0 and when we were up 3-0 I was counting my winnings and even then I thought then that that may be less and maybe more like 6 or 7

Henry I have to agree with you for a change :) I thought Henderson’s distribution was very poor, and he gave away possession most of the time. I think the whole team pass backwards far too often. There was one time when we had the ball level with their penalty area and then made about five passes ending up with the ball being passed back to Adrian :?

Bill. Liverpool ARE NOT European Champions....they are last years European Champions.

Seems nobody here gives full credit to excellent opposition and simply blames the inadequacies of the Liverpool team, individually or collectively, depending on the critic.

It is the job of the coach to have his team perform well and some coaches are better than others. Klopp is very good and has done an excellent job with the squad, bearing in mind the fact that LFC and their backers have, and will continue to, provide him with ready available cash.

If the players are not good enough then it is Klopps' fault as, if Bootle Bucks can see it, then so should he.

The English thing in general is to criticise our teams when everything doesn't go as we would hope and nobody ever seems to understand that a team can only play as well as the opposition allows.

Seven from seven is pretty good so enjoy it while it lasts. Success isn't indefinite, that's for sure.

Henry I agree with you about Henderson, he has a big heart and got a great engine but I've never thought he was good enough skill wise. I personally like Gomez but he needs a good run in the team. Great three points yesterday.

Good to see this thread active in my absence, well done lads.
I saw every LFC game live on the cruise ship and a lot of other games as well as the Rugby, mostly from the pub but games are also shown live in the cabins on Sports 24.

Nice one Ken.

We didn't get any sport on our (Marella) cruise in August.

Mind you, probably a good thing or Barb would have had me keel-hauled. :lol:

Bit of a bummer missing the Super Cup game though.

Shocking England display last night.
Henderson was ineffective and Keane is not good enough at this level.
Pickford was the best of the local lads on display but overall a very poor performance by England :roll: Ken

They were appalling defensive wise. The two full backs along with Keane were awful. The midfield were poor. Barclay looked good when he came on but we got what we deserved.

Wijnaldum pops in another two for Holland. I’d like to see more goals from midfield for us, can’t always rely on big three :D

Not since Stevie G, Eddy . Midfield will be an issue with Milner, Lallana and Hendo knocking on .
I’m a bit worried about the Ox, I thought he’d feature more and wonder if all is well. Shaqiri is a bit part player these day and with his apparent ego I’m sure he’ll want more but there again that ego might just keep him at Champions League winners and top of Prem :D With Fabinho, I’m happy. I wonder who will come through from the kids.

At 17 that might be a bit too early.
He needs to develop a bit more Henry but as I haven’t seen much of him but I still hope Gomez will cover that spot.
