  1. Massive result and 3 points for us, and when that is following up another massive result and 3 points for us last weekend it really has been a big week for us. Thomas and Barnes were magnificent on the left today. First half we oozed class and took the game away from them. They barely laid a finger on us. Second half we showed our resilience, defensive qualities, organisation and squad depth to manage the game out. Real graft from everyone to get it over the line. Absolutely chuffed with that.
  2. Cracking title race going on in Turkey. Galatasaray, Besiktas and Fenerbahce all level on points with 51 in a 3-way tussle. Nice to see Ghezzal chipping in with some good performances and 11 goal contributions. Hopefully it encourages a permanent deal.
  3. Man United dropping a couple of points today was a bonus on top of our result yesterday. Turning into an excellent weekend with other results beyond our own too.
  4. If Nuno was to go, and I agree given it's his first period of struggle since he came in and Jimenez's injury means it wouldn't necessarily be correct to sack him, do you think the playing squad you have necessitates another Portuguese/Brazilian/Spanish manager? Even as I type it, it feels like quite a dim and 'making the shoe fit' viewpoint because Nuno is Portuguese himself, but would it concern you as to whether a British or another European manager could replicate the same togetherness and mentality Nuno has instilled within that group as he has been reliant from players from hi
  5. Klopp's comments are the least surprising quotes I've ever seen. He's the most ungracious bastard in defeat. Every time he's bleating on about injuries, congested fixture schedules, referee decision and the style of play utilised by the opposition. Every time. The bloke is a grade A* cock. He's not alone though, we've beaten all of the Rich 6 this season bar Man Utd and, with the exception of Lampard who frankly (pun intended) didn't have a leg to stand and knew he was a dead man walking, they have all moaned and whined post match: Guardiola - we didn't play the open,
  6. Ndidi is a monster. With him in the side, breaking up play and offering stability in our midfield, he offers the the platform the other players need to play to their highest levels further up the pitch. Take him out and we struggle to replicate that dominance in the midfield in all of our games. It's no slight on Mendy, Hamza or whoever comes in next to Tielemans, just the fact that Ndidi is an absolute thoroughbred.
  7. Massive result for us. No doubt Liverpool were in control for most of the game until the final 15mins when they totally collapsed and we punished it ruthlessly. They almost conceded 4 in 7mins but for an outstanding double save from Alisson. Before then we defended pretty well under a lot of a pressure and had to work extremely hard to get a foothold in the game as Liverpool hassled us and closed the space down really well in the first 35mins or so. We had enough chances before the free kick to score at least 1 too. Well worth the win and a huge shot in the arm for the Top 4 race.
  8. I thought Big Dan did just fine today. We had to move Ricardo over to the left hand side, and needed him to come in against a potentially lethal Mane-Robertson combination. He held his own on the right hand side, and defended the penalty box well for most of the game, including a last ditch challenge on Mane. We'll likely be patched up like that until Castagne comes back if Rodgers doesn't put Thomas in. Amartey did his bit today and is great CB and fullback cover option to tide us over.
  9. Horrible news for JJ. It looked bad when he went down and I think we were all hopeful because of Rodgers' words post match. Wishing him a speedy recovery, a real sucker punch after his phenomenal rise and superb performances this season. Ricardo staying fit now is vital. If he goes down again, with Castagne having an injury hit spell and JJ's versatility now lost too, we're in trouble at fullback.
  10. A pretty blunt game but we probably just about edged it over the 90mins. We absolutely didn't need extra time so avoiding that was key. Nice to see a bit of creativity with a corner, great cross by Youri and a tidy header from Iheanacho. Nice for Nacho to have his moment and be the match winner. If JJ's injury isn't too bad as Rodgers alluded to then - whilst it was ugly - it was job done smoothly enough.
  11. The switch when out of possession to get Maddison up alongside the striker seems to be helping his game a lot as it gives him a much better starting position when we start our transition into attack. He's trying the same things he always did, and more. He gets himself into the box more, drifts into really nice positions to link up with the wide players, and also plays a higher line. This season I think our system does a much better job of accommodating Tielemans and Maddison together, which has helped them both really up their levels.
  12. I agree - in the reverse fixture we got overrun in midfield and Lookman, Cavaleiro and Decordova-Reid were running riot in behind the wing backs. It wasn't pretty. We were much better set up tonight to stop a similar game pattern and their key players I thought. Credit BR and co.
  13. Really professional performance and edges of real quality in attack too. Just the ticket after a bit of a stinker at the weekend. Fulham played some neat build up stuff and we snuffed pretty much everything out really thoroughly. Two cracking goals with Iheanacho and Maddison showing some class at the top end of the pitch. Ricardo and Soyuncu slotted in well for good games in their first league starts too. After a frantic and untidy display at the weekend, it was nice to get a clean sheet, a comfortable win and bury a couple of chances. Job done, onto Wolves.
  14. Smart move from BR to include Hamza from the start imo. There are some big, powerful midfielders in the Fulham squad - the likes of RLC and Anguissa are big ****ers and can play a bit as well. Mendy might well have struggled with that but thought Hamza handled his role well and gave a good account of himself and battled well for us.
  15. Really positive tonight from Iheanacho and showed all that's good about his game in both goals. Great dart into the box and excellent header to finish it off for the first goal, and a sublime turn and through ball combo in the build up for the second goal. He also put himself about well and pressed from the front which he's sometimes lacking. That will have done him the world of good tonight. Well done Nacho.
