    Brilliant fecking win, we needed this as there were far too many skeptics about how good we are. This should silent a few of them and it could’ve been far more comfortable if Cavani makes that header.

    He once blamed the fact that three of our players getting injured and subbed in the first half, cost Liverpool their rhythm - while we had no more subs and a Marcus Rashford who was limping around the pitch. I'm sure he's got some magic in his locker.
    I can remember him doing that :lol: it was us with 3 injured players but no we dared be the ones who inconvenienced him!

    He will probably moan about the free kick or something or the fact they have injuries

    Maybe he will moan about the weather, he likes doing that, too cold maybe?

    Shaw let's Salah run past him for the first.

    Our ball playing from the goalie is shocking and Cavani makes an awful blind pass for the second.

    I'm sure they'll all look at themselves but don't know why you'd isolate Lindelof.
    Because whenever there's a cluster feck, he's there. Or not as the case may be. The first goal he ran off in the opposite direction of Salah, the second he just stood there and stuck out a token foot as firmino just wandered past him in the box.

    Could've been a pretty embarrassing scoreline today. They're lucky that they got out of it with a 3-2 loss.

    The media narrative that we're the plucky underdog defending for our lives against the mighty Liverpool has got to change. They won one title ffs and are in the process of bottling their challenge. Chelsea didn't get this much credit when they won theirs.

    Yeah there are a few shouts (NONE defenders)
    Rashford gets it for me.
    Yeah I think Rashford for his contributions. Greenwood was in for a shout but Rashford did more away from the goal/assists. Shaw played fantastic again, as did Pogba

    I can't wait until both ends can be good at the same time, it seems to be either attack like today, or defence like the league game against them

    We know both can be good just got to get them doing so at the same time

    Ah has it been raining? But the crucial question- was it windy?!

    Didn't he moan about the snow once, yet they had sent people out at half time to clear their box but left the box snowy for the team they were playing against, I can definitely remember them clearing only 1 box

    Far from faultless. Poor at times giving ball away to early again with that forward pass. We gave them the importance on 2nd half. Shaw again was excellent Pogba was, Rashord in 1st half. Maguire can be better his passes out from back were not it at times , but the scum didn't give you the time so that's picking .
    Bruno is class just settled it down when he came on Got Cavani on the ball more, his tracking back is on point he nicked the ball on a few occasions. I'm taking the win but I know these lads can get better against these pressing sides. Klopp went for this more than Utd did he fell short again. There bench was not very good.

    Onwards and upwards lads

    Why are the bbc making it sound like a smash and grab? I thought we deserved the win 100%
    It was 80-20 us. But if the BBC is your only point of reference it’s a completely different story.

    We owned them most of the match. Both their goals were against the run of play.

    The whole rhetoric was about Liverpool finding their form and scoring a goal in a football match and therefore they are now back to their best

    I remember that.

    I think they dropped points in the game too so it totallybackfired on them

    The media always suck Liverpool off; probably to avoid the hassle of a million unemployed scousers complaining to them daily about an anti-scouse agenda.

    They did. It was against Leicester and they drew 1 - 1. Unbelievably unsporting. Imagine the scenes and complaints if another team did that to Klippety Klopp's team?

    Will be easier to pursue the Europa in my opinion, should get an easier tie after Sociedad. The FA Cup has lost its sparkle, its shit.
    FA Cup is easier though. You get more days between games. Even though we might get easier teams in the Europa after Sociedad, it's the schedule that takes its toll. It's a Thursday game then a Sunday game in the league for 8 straight weeks till the final. Absolutely not worth it. Want us to get knocked out by Sociedad so we can concentrate on the league. Bin the Europa league. It's second rate and crap

    There would be prison sentences handed out if it was done to them.

    Worth noting that his Dortmund side did kind of bounce back in the second half of that 2014/15 season: they went 9-3-3 in the last 15 league games, compared to only 4 wins in the first 19.
    That was after Klopp announced he‘d step down though, right?
