Liverpool thread


#1895

Tottenham aren’t in any title race. They’ll just put pressure on the team in second place. Like the pressure merchants they are


#1896

#1897

It was actually a pretty exceptional recovery from Stones after his original cockup.


#1898

Lovren is such a fucking hack. His sole mission today was disorganizing his own defence, creating openings for City. That shit ball in the end to VVD and then the reaction by the latter was all money. I loved how he then looked at Klopp with that 'What’s up with this guy?" face and Klopp gave his own “Sorry Virgil, that’s all we have.” face. :joy::joy::joy:


#1899

They missed Joe Gomez, thankfully for us


#1900

Love the fact we can call another teams centre half shite. Pity we couldnt get the leagues top scorer a chance to prove it saturday.
Why was that again. . .


#1901

Funny thing is Lovren would be our best CB lol.


#1902

Well of course, he’s one of the best in the world.


#1903

You are going hard for troll of the year :arteta:


#1904

Nah I think our recruitment staff are, given the state of our backline and trying to solve it by Leno, Sokratis & Lichsteiner :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#1905

I’m convinced Lichtensteiner was retiring and they asked him if he’d like to come to the PL and take the piss for a year.


#1906

He really wouldn’t be. He’s Mustafi level and Sokratis and Holding are both better than that.


#1907

Indeed. Don’t doubt he has some attributes but he is very unreliable on his own.


#1908

We’ll have to agree to disagree, I think Arsenal fans overate Sokratis because he’s Greek and talks tough. Ignore the fact he gets tight on attackers constantly and gives away needless fouls.

But yeah look Lovren is a bit of joker like all our defenders.


#1909

I don’t rate Sokratis very highly at all and I’ve made that very clear. But Lovren is worse than Sokratis and not better than Holding so your original point is still wrong in my opinion.


#1910

I suppose irrespective of what we think no point getting into a pointless debate about who’s less bad in regards to these jokers.

In regards to Holding I’ll admit he’s young and at least has the scope to get a fair bit better. If that eventuates or not remains to be seen though, hopefully the ACL doesn’t take a huge toll on him.


#1911

I get your point but for a guy who came not too long ago in the PL he is doing very well.
I was really iffy when we got him with the timing and all, especially after seeing him a bit all over the place in early friendlies BUT he has been solid right since the start of the PL, from the City game he got in and meant business.


#1912

Glad our unbeaten record stays. I could see only City doing the job tbh.

I still think Liverpool will win the league. I am okay with that.


#1913

These lads are Liverpool’s midfield. Next time someone complains to me about Arsenal’s midfield, I remind them that Liverpool are on a league winning campaign with Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner as their midfield.


#1914

Who are all substantially better than our midfielders and limiting Keita and Fabinho’s game time.
