I spent quite some time reading all the comments and the fallout from yesterday’s loss to Bournemouth and it was interesting stuff indeed. It’s obvious that one of the biggest issues with the loss is that it was Bournemouth that beat us in a game we should have won and when you place that defeat on top of the Burnley defeat, it really isn’t pretty reading at all. Even though they were both away matches it still can’t be glossed over and forgotten. Well maybe we can a teensy weenie little bit.
It’s probably ok to sit at home and complain about two dropped points in a game that we were by far the better team, but when you look at it from a more realistic point of view, you have to feel grateful for what you can get in situations like that today. What a completely shite day to play football. The rain, the cold and then you have Southampton away on top of that. Just the pictures of Jurgen Klopp in the pissing
I’m not buying into the latest story doing the rounds that Sturridge wants to leave in January. First of all I can’t find any real proof and second of all it’s just speculation by the Mirror on what they believe is the situation at Lfc. Can anyone come up with a quote or quotes that came from the mouth of Daniel Sturridge or anyone at Lfc that would indicate he wants out or wants to leave in January. No , because there are none. It’s a load of bollix
I’m actually baffled by the reaction and the fallout from Monday night’s game against United. It just seems that everyone wants to have a go at everything that Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have done since the start of the season. Starting with Mourinho and his up and down self contradicting nonstop idiotic comments about how Liverpool were the defensive team on the night and how his precious United were the ones who tried to win the game. The stats speak for themselves and although I will admit that United were better with the ball for the first 45 minutes of the game, they did bugger all with it when Liverpool allowed them to have it. That’s not to say that Liverpool were much better when they were in possession but at least their aim was to spend the 90 minutes playing for all 3 points. The stats say that United’s possession against Liverpool was their lowest since 2003-04 but that’s the second time this season that they fell short of the 40% rate . Just to put that 35.02% possession into context, it converts to less than 32 minutes out of 90. Some will say that possession doesn’t matter

Well, well, well. It seems admin Alex’s posts about Brendan Rodgers caused quite a bit of a stir and caused a lot of tension and emotion to spill over onto the page. Personally I take my hat off to the lad for having the guts to take on such a post. I’m sure he knew he would have to undertake a barrage of abuse, but that was never going to stop admin Alex from sharing his opinion. hahahaha.
Some of you might have noticed your comment was deleted. That was me. You will
Arsenal take on Liverpool in their opening game of the Premier League this season on Saturday.
The Gunners will be hoping for a solid start to their season, but Arsene Wenger’s side are going to be without several key players for this game.
Although Arsenal have a very good home record against Liverpool, Saturday’s match will be a great chance for Jurgen Klopp’s men to pick up a morale-boosting win over their top four rivals.
The Reds have had a very good pre-season and will look to start the season with a bang. Despite a few injury issues, Liverpool have the quality to beat any side in the division and Arsenal’s injury crisis will be a bit of an added advantage.
