Need these attacking players to start for the remaining games. Would have Skipp at left back also. Or just put a wheelie bin there.
Trouble is Richarlison came on against Arsenal and like today our fortunes changed but in between he started against Chelsea and it was dogs hit.
There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

We absolutely need 3 new attackers. No question about it
And one of them needs to be either Ivan Toney or Alexander Isak. No messing about. We need a top draw striker rather than shopping in the bargain basement of Europe trying to find a bargain.

We have all seen the record revenue figures so Levy can have no excuses going for Ange’s third choice striker just because they are a bit cheaper than his first choice.

The whole mindset at the top of the club needs to change from here on!

No way Newcastle sell Isak, and not to us, as a direct competitor to them.

He'd cost north of 100 million.

But yeah he'd be my pick lol

I know our left back options are limited but I’m pretty miffed Ange pretty much hung Emerson Royal out to dry with that selection, everyone could see that coming a mile off matching him up against Salah… He should have tried VDV out there and started Dragusin in the centre. How much worse can that have been than what played out and was always going to play out.
I agree in that I would have played VDV at LB but Emerson is a FB so to ignore Salah behind him for the first goal is inexcusable.

I think that is a fair observation.

There was a comment about AVB earlier in the thread - that is how we played under AVB at the end - no fight at all.


It's clear that something is not right in the club - but they were still fighting even when down, having lost 3 in a row prior. It probably would have been easier to give up, than it was to find some fight.
But we subbed out half the team to do that, obviously much too late.

Gosh, imagine thinking we could sign Isak or that he would even remotely be interested in coming here.

Wouldn't get too despondent over the result , our record at Anfield is terrible. Billy Nick never won a game there, even going 2-0 up and his team full of legends still couldn't win.
Just beat Burnley & Sheff Utd and we will be the 5th best team in the PL in Ange's first season , who knows we might even beat Man City as well.

Apparently Newcastle need to sell a player or two before they can buy and Isak and Guimaraes are the names being mentioned. The big Italian and Spanish clubs all seem to be skint. ManC don’t need a striker, Chelsea are also at risk of breaching FFP rules. So if Newcastle do need to sell, then it really only leaves Arse, Dippers and ourselves. Can’t see him interested in a move to Saudi just yet considering he is only 24. Wages also shouldn’t be a problem for us either seeing as HK is now off the wage bill. I do agree though that he may take a bit on convincing to leave the barcodes as he seems reasonably happy there. But I don’t see any reason why a move for Isak should be considered unrealistic.

It seems like Vicario made that Emerson/Romero "altercation" look much more dramatic than it actually was by diving in.

Yea, and this has been ongoing for a while now, players perform well when subbed on but turns to shit when they’re started in the next game, the starting 11 never seems to work.

Why do Sky focus on Pools two non penalty incidents but not a mention for Gomez head high challenge on BJ
Commentators play to particular club-supporting audiences, making excuses for a club, exaggerating the good play of a club, and interpreting match incidents that try to make light of bad fouls, aggressive behaviour, etc. Much radio and TV commentary is so much ever-yapping noise in the ear.
