Eds,

Does anyone know why we persist with this high line with hands in the air when opposition players are under no pressure on the ball style of defending.

Is making it very easy for very average teams to create big chances against us and we over rely on our keeper consistently to save us when it's not necessary.

Fine if pressure on the ball but if not surely they must drop when the pass is being played .

Absolute chaos and makes everyone nervous and gives the opposition such a boost .

Carragher says this every single match . . .

{Ed001's Note - it is exactly what I have been saying all along as well. It is amateur hour stuff. Last season the reason the defending improved at the end is because Phillips and Williams, I am sure because they knew they lacked recovery pace, would drop off if there was no pressure on the ball. We looked so much better for it. I do have to question why none of the coaching staff are seeing that and working on it. It is after all the basic rule of centre-back play, you only hold a line when there is pressure on the man on the ball. Otherwise you drop off and cover runs.

I wish I knew why the team persists with it, there is no good reason to do so.}

Football basics
You just don’t play offside with no pressure on the ball.

Cant for the life of me understand why our cbs keeping pushing out when opposition player running threw in final third, lunacy.

Watching Chelsea this afternoon they start high then drop when pass is played which is correct, with Silva organising the whole back line and Rudigers pace being used to his advantage.

Contrast that to us against Spurs, few chances gifted up unlike us who were handing them up like sweeties.

Keep hearing how good a coach Pep Linders is but this style of defending is taking us back to the Ridgers days and we know how that cost us so dearly .

Any chance a proper defensive coach goes it, not saying it would be Carragher but a Hypia type potentially going in and sorting this out?

Talk to the German fella and the "leader" of the back four who is supposed to organise it all. Instead of laying the blame at a coaches door blame those with the final say.

Bullet header for the goal but that must be one of VVDs worst games for us? He looked so slow be worried if that was his first game back but he’s been fine since returning just today he wasn’t right at all.

Everyone is entitled to an off day.

It does my head in when I read that Keita has done very well so far in the group stages of the Afcon and is in the "Best XI" team. And Salah and Mané, are not 😂. He definitely has some LFC or Anfield related allergy of some kind.

Here is hoping some scouts watch him and come up with an offer. He needs to cashed up on.

23 Jan 2022 14:27:12
You've little to be worrying about if that does your head in.

Hating a Liverpool player doing well😆. my god!

23 Jan 2022 08:41:13
Hope you're all safe and well it's been a tough few years but at least we can rely on our club for a rollercoaster of emotion!

I'd love us to make Jude Bellingham our number one target in the summer I just know we don't have the cash for that which is a shame, kids got it all.

Does anyone know if Sheffield Utd are looking to buy Davies at the end of the season?

Not sure how he's been doing but would be interesting to know.

Didn’t you ask the exact same question yesterday?

23 Jan 2022 09:52:37
I'm expecting him to be sold, but I'm also expecting Philips and potentially Gomez to go so maybe if that happens the Davies will hang around as 4th/ 5th choice if he accepts that.

A tired old showing of Back To The Future Part 17 at Goodison Park.
Lump it forward.
Anyone remember those semi-circular'bites' out of both ends behind the goals at Goodson because of objects thrown at away keepers?

But "Big Dunc", Juicer!

Passion! Aggression! Playing for the shirt! etc. etc.

They're going down.

22 Jan 2022 20:04:20
They're certainly not in a good way SR.

23 Jan 2022 07:25:41
I really hope they go down (sorry 25) They are a bit of a joke at the moment and after their fans showing yesterday. people's club mmmm.

Does anyone know how Ben Davies is getting on? I'd completely forgot about him.

22 Jan 2022 15:28:36
Seems to be playing regularly, but beyond that I don't know.

22 Jan 2022 16:52:54
Not in the squad today or for the last game.

21 Jan 2022 08:55:20
Any one know how much Watford offered for big Nat?
Hope to god the club aren’t pricing him out of a move!
The lad deserves to be playing.

Whats the line whenever were interested in a player? . "the club know what they have to pay if they want the player". Doubt Liverpool are asking for unreasonable money so Watford know what they have to do, instead of Ranieri gushing over Nat every interview. If it was klopp people on here would be slating him.

21 Jan 2022 13:31:51
100% JH.

21 Jan 2022 15:04:20
If they want the player, pay the fee or negotiate a fee close to it. Or they can send Sarr in exchange for Phillips, I’d take that?

21 Jan 2022 16:52:48
Exactly. Always the line trotted out for us. if they want Nat then pay up.
