Why couldn’t Liverpool have played like this last week? 🤷‍♂️

 

Just going to say this, nearly every pundit was agreed that last week was Liverpool's best performance of the season! They never seem to have an off day against us at the moment... :(

Brighton look a gift horse in the mouth.  :rolleyes:

 

MacMannaman  there, noticeably crestfallen that Liverpool conceded a penalty.

 

It's disgracefully biased commentary.

 

 

Same again just now. No issues with the bias punditry with a pundit of either side, but comms should be neutral

I'm glad that we don't need a matchday thread to find things to slag off again about our own club and team.

Its a fair talking point about our approach to playing Liverpool. Brighton will more than likely go on to lose still but at least they're having a go at them

Why would they when we turned up scared of them

This. They may have had their best performances against us last week, boxing day last year and whenever they play us but you can't overlook the fact we've absolutely shit ourselves whenever we've come up against them recently, it does half the job for them, it allows them to play well.

The difference is far more about Liverpool’s drop off than Brighton being any better than us. If we’d have had the chance to get in behind last week like Brighton have this week we would have.

The fact this is a massively different Liverpool outfit than the one we faced isn't being mentioned enough. Designed to be more attacking than the one used to nullify us.

I could accept us losing to these if we had a go like Brighton are

Until Brighton win away at Man City and Arsenal and start mixing it with the top 4 like we do then I'll trust the game plan of Rodgers. 

 

We tried to have a pop at the very best and were abysmal at doing so, I wish we could be better in that regard and hopefully over time we will be if we have to play pragmatic counter attacking football at certain times then so be it, we score enough fcukin goals over the course of a season anyway.

Is it controversial to say I wouldn't mind us having a look at Connolly as Vardy's understudy? He's still so young - I think there's a load of potential there. 

Wouldn't represent value for money for the player he is, barely scored any goals yet and they'd want more than £30m for him. No thanks.

Given the last post of mine was removed, I'll point out instead that Liverpool got turned over midweek by Atalanta at home - perhaps that & today give an indication of where their priority was in the past week or so. We should treat it as a compliment, even if it meant we had a bad day.

This - I was thinking exactly this -

Klopps job was easy when they played us ...  oh look what the papers are saying ...  could it be Leicesters season again ???  ...  half of Liverpools players are missing and they are playing a ‘very weakened’ team ...  we might as well give up as they are going to be far too good for you lot. They came out like men possessed and we buckled immediately.

So the last 2 Liverpool games we’ve had carragher and mcmanan as co commentary’s. I wouldn’t mind but both are so biased it’s ridiculous. 

And they are both awful commentators, especially Mcmanaman who just agrees with everything the other bloke says.

 

In fact it really is incredible how many ex Liverpool players actually work on TV & Radio, especially considering they cannot talk properly
