Mo you beauty.

Agree12 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 22:00:06
Alisson! Alisson! Alisson!

11 Dec 2018 22:05:52
Allison wonder land!

11 Dec 2018 22:30:52
Gary? Is that you?

11 Dec 2018 22:32:03
If only I could I'd make this world a Becker place, bit of a tune from the 90s, could be a keeper.

11 Dec 2018 22:47:09
Wonderboy Allison.

11 Dec 2018 19:40:29
I was spot on with the midfield Wijnaldum, Henderson, Milner start.
i had hoped for i hope for shaq, fabinho and gini.

Agree4 Disagree6

11 Dec 2018 20:54:04
Same as I predicted to. But I wanted naby in for wijinaldum! So far looking good though. wiji just a little weak at times.

11 Dec 2018 21:58:02
Wijnaldum showed up when it mattered most tonight. He was immense in those last 20 minutes. The whole bloody team was.

11 Dec 2018 22:05:27
Gini oh gini, gives me a headache each time I see him play. Kid is boss but he just needs to see it himself. Welldone to the team.

11 Dec 2018 22:06:14
Gini always throws in a top drawer performance every now and then. I really wish he'd reproduce it regularly.

11 Dec 2018 22:49:33
It took a while for Gini (and the whole midfield really) to get going but once they got in their stride, Gini played the way his ability and talent warrants. I do think he was a bit jaded and tired. Don't know if he was carrying a knock BUT he toughed it out and gave a very good perf. Long may it continue.

12 Dec 2018 08:08:56
Gini showed his good and bad last night, he had some superb touches, but also some moments that showed either a lack of confidence or lack of judgement on where to go with the ball. But in that regard most of the team bar Henderson, VVD and Matip wasted the ball a lot.

And on Henderson, for all the haters of him, watch that game again, masterclass at the base of midfield, guy was everywhere. Was my MOTM till the Alisson save at the end. If that was Fab or Keita doing what Hendo did last night you'd all be salivating and saying how much of a world beater they were.

11 Dec 2018 19:15:41
Team selection looks too defensive for me, 3 similar players with not much creativity - seems we are playing to not lose. I’d rather we went for it, if you want to be defensively sound, pick Fabinho and say hendo, but then make the other Shaqiri or Keita.
Hope Matip turns up too!

Agree5 Disagree9

11 Dec 2018 19:41:59
We must be concentrating on the league.

11 Dec 2018 21:03:03
And what play Thursday nite football instead? I doubt it.

11 Dec 2018 22:51:01
And then, we woke up and found that said midfield played a blinder and LFC qualified for the next round. How sweet it is.

12 Dec 2018 07:15:18
Yup. That midfield was the key to the whole game. Klopp got his selections right, because he knew the experienced ones would step up.

11 Dec 2018 19:00:45
Milner, Hendo and Gini in midfield. I was really hoping Keita would start, but he's on the bench, as is Shaqiri.

Apart from that, no surprises. Matip stays in defence but I thought he did well last match. Napoli will be a different challenge for him I'm sure.

Come on Red Men.

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 18:52:18
Really hope they prove me wrong tonight, but that midfield does not give me confidence, I thought both Fabinho and Keita HAD to start but neither of them in the team just seems like a mistake to me. That midfield just doesn’t have enough creativity and leaving it up to the front 3 to do it all up top is a major risk!

Agree6 Disagree5

11 Dec 2018 18:57:38
It's the team I expected but I would also have liked keita in the midfield. Wiji always better at home tho and has popped up with big goals in the past so let's in trust in Klopp with this and see how we go! 🤞.

11 Dec 2018 18:59:24
Milner Hendo and Wilnaldum just do not work, can't beat Red Star, Klopp will lose it for us today.

What does Shakiri or keita have to do to be ahead of Milner and Hendo.

Ruined my day after seeing saturdays great performnce with this team sheetfor today.

11 Dec 2018 19:07:49
I think Klopp is looking to keep things tight early on to make sure we don't concede. He will bring Keita and Shaqiri on in second half if we need more goals.

11 Dec 2018 19:10:04
Give it a break rborhara support the lads until the final whistle. I think Hendo could be huge for us tonight.

11 Dec 2018 19:15:29
How quickly people forget that midfield was a vital part of our CL campaign last year.

We can’t go balls to the wall tonight, it’s a sign of respect against a very good Napoli team.

11 Dec 2018 19:17:24
i always support the team, but that midfield hasn't scored more than a goal all per game all season.

Great comment a few weeks ago, the best sort of defence is being offence, we need that.

11 Dec 2018 19:50:14
This midfield got us to the final last year, they will try to get us in to a good position for the likes of Shaq to get us the goals and creativity of needed. Not the midfield I expect but it’s not like we have put in a bunch of youngsters.

11 Dec 2018 21:00:43
Gini must've done a line of coke or something before he came out, he was brilliant in that first half.

11 Dec 2018 22:20:50
Imagine a team sheet ruining your day 🙄.

12 Dec 2018 08:10:06
Well this thread didn't age very well :P.

11 Dec 2018 18:51:21
Hendo, Gini, Millie and Matip in. Rest as expected.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Dec 2018 18:47:34
Matip plays, gets my full support! let's hope last seasons midfield means last seasons level of performance in Europe. Come on the Redmen!

Agree6 Disagree1

11 Dec 2018 17:45:34
Off to the game tonight! Come on boys! YNWA.

{Ed025's Note - good luck mate..

Agree10 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 18:09:44
Enjoy mate, shout loudest!

11 Dec 2018 18:29:16
Fingers crossed for the result tonight. hope it's a cracker for you mate. COME ON LADS.

11 Dec 2018 18:33:32
Have fun mate!

11 Dec 2018 18:42:23
Stood in the sing fongs queue as we speak. c'mon Red men!

11 Dec 2018 18:51:03
wow that blue ed is something special. 1st to wish us good luck. Suspect we may just need it. Thanks 25!

{Ed025's Note - no problem RAO..

11 Dec 2018 15:49:01
Hi eds
With you saying you are busy with your family for the next few weeks and won’t be able to do match reviews could I make a suggestion and could someone else do them. I have read other reviews on here before from a poster that were good I just can’t remember who.

{Ed002's Note - You want to take a crack at doing one? Any other takers?}

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 16:12:33
Nooo not me I struggle to type this up 😂 but am sure there others would like a go.

{Ed025's Note - MK scouser, salah and Brover have good penmanship but there are others on here who are good as well, time for someone to step up to the plate, i could do them but it may cause a riot.. :)

11 Dec 2018 17:03:15
An Ed002 match review would no doubt be hilarious, accurate and cutting at the same time 😄.

11 Dec 2018 17:23:35
An ed002 review following a win by us against Man Unite on Sunday would be priceless.

11 Dec 2018 17:03:15
An Ed002 match review would no doubt be hilarious, accurate and cutting at the same time 😄.

{Ed002's Note - I would have to do it without watching the game though.}

11 Dec 2018 17:26:41
Lol that would be funny Ron as would an Ed25 one! lol!

11 Dec 2018 17:29:24
Hey Eds025 if your still about, how do you think Fabinio's been doing, we're all v happy with him, has he started to change your mind?

{Ed025's Note - he has done ok i suppose IDLLK but he has had a lot of help from jimmy and naby what iv seen mate, if he does well i will give the fella due praise but its early days yet and he has not come up against much to be honest, lets see how he does when the big boys come out to play mate and he has to take more responsibility..

11 Dec 2018 17:46:50
Hey all, I'm happy to have a bash at Man U, Wolves and Newcastle (next 3 PL games), presuming Ed001 can do Napoli?

I'm on hols then, so need someone else to cover from Arsenal onwards.

Not sure of the exact ratio of commentary vs gags, but, hey, it'll be interesting!

{Ed025's Note - sounds good to me zed..

11 Dec 2018 18:21:18
Mk is a shout.

11 Dec 2018 18:13:27
I don’t know what games you’ve been watching Ed025😂 the guys making around 7-9 crunching tackles a game and has been very confident on the ball as well, including against everton, what more does he have to do to get you to accept defeat? Win the 2019 Ballon d’or?

{Ed025's Note - tackling does not count AW since you all want it banning after ben mee,s challenge on gomez, the thing is mate that you are so desperate for him to do well (or prove me wrong) that you are lauding ordinary performances as brilliant, and thats ok by me as i can be biased as well at times, but i can say hes fantastic if you want?..

11 Dec 2018 19:05:59
He's been nothing special. has not impressed for me. Good squad player but based on his price you would expect he would be an obvious inclusion in the starting 11 and he has not been.

11 Dec 2018 21:34:28
Go for it Zed.

11 Dec 2018 21:36:27
If love a crack at a match review but I’m a chef, it’s December - the 3 hours it takes just to watch the game twice would be a stretch, let alone the time to write the report. More than happy to chip in with a bit of writing though to (hopefully) keep people entertained. I’m putting the finishing touches today to something I’ve written for this site that will be getting sent to you lovely Ed’s tomorrow.

11 Dec 2018 19:18:59
You mean ben Mee’s assualt on Gomez ed? ;)

{Ed025's Note - no firmane i mean the tackle, just like the VVD one tonight where his momentum took him through the player, it happens mate its a contact sport..

11 Dec 2018 19:39:16
Personally i didn’t have a problem with Ben Mee’s challenge on Gomez, i haven’t seen anyone even complain about it? It was a fair challenge and the rain saw him slide off the field and hurt himself.

Quite the contrary, you don’t have to think Fabinho is the second coming, just that he is a little bit better than, as you put it, a ‘lemon’. I think the vast majority of people would say his performances have been quite positive so far, only time will tell though just how good he is.

{Ed025's Note - thats right AW, you are very fair there mate but on fab if he was as good as you say he would have started in this very important game, he never so that should tell you a lot..

11 Dec 2018 23:49:48
Would love to read Zeds reviews.

Ed's 025 love your opinions but Fabinio was brought in as a DM crunching tackles are his remit, and the boy can play a bit too from what I've seen.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that IDLLK, but lets not castigate mee and then say its ok for fab to do it as thats just hypocrisy mate, i would like to hear zed,s review of tonight as he usually has a balanced view on things mate..

12 Dec 2018 01:38:55
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Eds and Reds, first review due on Sunday evening!

Can't really give much of a review of today I'm afraid Ed025 as I missed the first half (travelling home) and then was juggling work and watching for the second half! From what I caught, it looked pretty frenetic, quite end to end in the second half.

We should have had this dead and buried with 20-25 mins to go but I'm not sure whether the boys (Mane esp) caught a bit of the nerves and tension that we fans felt as they seemed to hurry their shots, thinking Mane's past the post on the left, and Salah's dragged wide on the right.

I really can't complain about our monster of a GK after that save - epic! - but I noticed his distribution got a bit wayward in the second half. I wonder what his pass completion stats were? I reckon they were a bit down on his average in this game.

Matip is growing on me and he seems to play a lot better alongside VVD than he did alongside Lovren last season. With VVD being suspended for the first leg of the next UCL game, we HAVE to hope Gomez is fit and play Gomez/ Lovren rather than Matip/ Lovren.

12 Dec 2018 08:17:18
Lets not forget Fab came on and nearly cost us the game when you're lauding him as something special IDLLK and AW. He met a lot of headers the last 10, but the one that counted in the box he fluffed, Alisson bailed him out.

{Ed001's Note - actually, if you watch it again, there was a push of players which stopped him reaching it, bit harsh to say he nearly cost us the game. Van Dijk failed to make headers too, as did quite a few players at the other end, why so harsh on a player that had just come on as a sub? Or do you also want to hit out at them as nearly costing us the game? Salah could have easily had a hat-trick, did he nearly cost us the game by failing to score the other times?}

13 Dec 2018 08:36:02
If there's a push of our players in front of him to go for a header, it wasn't his header to be won, an he would have filled the gap behind them, as such the ball wouldn't have gone through to Milik.

Alternatively he wins the header and it doesn't go through to Milik, the other players around the ball aren't blameless, I just feel the majority lies with Fab.

Salah and Mane also could have cost us the game with their poor finishing, you're right, I don't dispute that, Alisson bailed them out too, but the above posts weren't about them.

I don't have a vendetta against Fab, I don't mean to be overly harsh, I actually quite like what he's done so far, but lauding him as something he's not yet is all the point I was making. If that was Henderson making that mistake at the end would people have been so keen to let him off the hook?

Also I don't buy the argument about just coming on as a sub, I don't remember the exact time he came on but he must have had at least 5-10 mins by then.

Anyway not meaning to sound argumentative Ed, just how I see it, don't take it the wrong way. May have to agree to disagree.

{Ed001's Note - he only came on in the 85th minute and you misread or I explained badly, the player was pushed into him, not there was a push of players ahead of him.}

13 Dec 2018 09:26:52
No worries ed, maybe a bit of both. Anyway we won the game that's all that matters at the end of the day, have a good day ed. Appreciate you giving me your point of view too.

{Ed001's Note - I realised I put of not on, so it should have read push on players, not push of players. I see what you are saying though, I didn't see the previous posts before, just yours and it came across as unnecessarily harsh on its own. However, when the context is taken into account, I can see what you mean.}

13 Dec 2018 11:12:45
No bother Ed001, that's what I love about this site, can have a well natured discussion about different players, all see different things. Much appreciated what you do here.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. Made me realise I should have checked though. I don't do that often because the threads can often be so long you end up spending ages reading through and completely forget what you want to say!}

11 Dec 2018 15:41:25
I am buzzing for this already, would love a big win but my prediction is 2-0 to us, salah and randomly going to say van dijk from a corner!

Where is everyone going to be watching the match?

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 17:28:37
I'm working til 8 but getting the better half to collect me so I can watch on my phone til I get back to the house, should be watching from my house from 8:30.

I can't wait for this game to start, I think napoli will come and try and score 1st to put the pressure on us, hopefully they leave themselves open and we can get an early goal.

11 Dec 2018 17:47:45
I'll be watching first half on Live Chat as will be travelling home from work, and second half at home!

11 Dec 2018 18:08:39
It's going to be torture right to the end. Only way it won't be is if we are 3 or 4 nil up with 30 seconds left on the clock.
