Yes we are all pissed off, with that performance, with the tactics, with the result, with losing to that lot.
And yes, we all have a right to be to let our emotions out. And bashing the manager (because he constructs the strategy and tactics isn’t it) is par for the course.
Yet, the following...
who are you, and what have you done with the real A&C? Did the Goat log in to the wrong account?
Most folks focused on the one disappointment of the window - striker - but those who are imo missing out on the big picture >> which is that we completed 17 deals in all!
in’s: Vorm loan, GF loan...
2 stand out moments
1. That press and tackle to win the ball back near the edge of their box, leading to a chance
2. That run into the box to anticipate Aurier’s cross. Should have finished, unlucky not to.
silver lining is that the teams bunched up from 4th to 12th are only separated by 11 points, and many teams will take points off one another / drop points in the 16 matches to be played.
dont recall ever seeing such a competitive season in the epl where anybody can take points off anybody
If we scored one, I'm quite sure we would have gone on to win the game.
That's how spot on tactically he had us playing today.
Restricted them so so well.
And then went for the kill.
Could have, should have, paid off!
After a while you could see what we were trying to do!
We restricted their attack to 2 or 3 clear cut chances, from which they scored one.
And last 25 mins, there looked like only one team in it, and all the liverpool fans around me + the liverpool bench all looked worried.
Other than his obvious lack of form, did anybody else also noticed that he’s a bit of a brat towards newer team mates?
Doesn’t seem to like passing to Sessegnon or GLC, and quick to berate them as well.
Also started to do a lot of keano type arms flailing in the air in frustration at team mates’...
dele has not been substituted except once where he went on a strop. Like you, I’d love to see one game where GLC replaces Dele and plays as #10.
edit: when Dele isn’t performing. Dele has not been playing well at all and didn’t get subbed once in the past 4/5 matches
the pundits on our live broadcast were Darren Bent and Tim Sherwood and Bent made the following point which really highlights why playing Winks and Sissoko (on this occasion / this type of players) really does not help us IN CONTRAST to what happened after GLC and Eriksen came on.
only because it was stated that KWP and Rose didnt train after the Brighton game, as else, would have started Rose.
