Liverpool Football Club Thread - Champions 19/20

Recommended Posts

I know it's never easy to come on as a sub as a 'keeper, and I know he's got to be low on confidence, but Mignolet really is rubbish. I wouldn't trust him to be able to clear his diary, let alone a cross into the box. And why does he always kick it out to the right, often straight out of play?

Burnley are playing really well, and exactly how we should be capable of - pushing high up the pitch, pressing the ball, breaking with pace and purpose, actually creating chances. We are on the back foot and struggling to get hold of the ball and, when we have it, do anything meaningful.

I know Rodgers has to say he thinks we can get top-4, but we're miles away from it.

And yet again, there are gaps everywhere. The free shot they just had from the edge of the box. If that goes in are you guys that were solely blaming Skrtel the other day going to blame the defence again? Because the two CMs are stood behind him just watching as he takes the shot. They literally just let him take the shot.

All that playing this wide does is make it harder for us to keep the ball and easier for them to hurt us when they have it. I keep hearing about this philosophy but all I see is basic errors every week.

Gerrard on the bench. Changes at the back again. Lucas and Can start. Hope this system works.

Bet Shelvey scores.

So far one of the most complete halves of football I have seen from Liverpool this season.

The system and the personnel just looks right. Henderson as captain works.

It seems it can be a 3-5-3, 5-2-3, 3-2-5 and just interchange as needed. If the win happens, would be nice to see this remain. There even seems to be a solidity towards the back as Lucas and Henderson keep charge of the back 3 and offer protection, allowing the wing backs to push on and offer support. Having Lucas also allows Henderson to push forward when Liverpool control the ball. More of the same please.

Leave Gerrard on the bench as a player that can come on and do damage if needed.

You've pretty much said everything I was going to say. Really working for us at the moment this setup and players. Good performances from all so far - hope we can keep it up.

Shelvey lucky to still be on.

Sigurdsson pulls one back immediately. Harmless ball into the box not dealt with, second ball in allows him a tap in.

And Sterling hits the post!

Season starts here huh?!

Gerrard on the bench a sign of things to come I think. Henderson is like a different man when Gerrard isn't on.

Nice little flick for Lallana there and very well taken goal. He's definitely been the MOTM for us so far, he hasn't stopped all game.

Another goal would put us above them in the table wouldn't it based on head to heads?

JJ not having the greatest game - possible retrospective ban upcoming for that swipe on Can and now an own goal.

We'll actually have a positive goal difference if the result stays this way too!

Great result, happy with that today.

Lallana, Coutinho & Can all great performances.

Excellent performance. Swansea didn't really offer all that much but that was in large part because going forwards we looked a different team from a month ago. Wonder how Gerrard felt watching.

Finally a performance we can be very happy with, hopefully we can continue this and string some wins together. Spurs have Chelsea on the 1st and we have Leicester so hopefully we can climb another position and see us only a few of points from 4th
