Yeah watching it back it wouldn't be a foul anywhere else on the pitch. I'd argue if someone stood on him then yes but a swipe and a touch which looks worse in slowmo. Not sure. The VAR decision to rule out Salahs is worse but no point in talking about that.Even Welbeck said it was a soft penalty. VAR wouldnt have got involved with a challenge like that anywhere else on the pitch, so why does it in the penalty area?
I was just about to say did you go back in time and fudge the score hahaha.‘Lib’pool, Top the League, Lib’pool, Lib’pool Top the League!’
Another excellent three points. Not the best watch, but in context of it coming off the back of the mad off day mid-week/ being ridiculously stung with the early KO/ Brighton having the luxury of a full week between games/ all the key players missing et al, a superb away victory nonetheless. These are the games that win you titles and the Champions consistently find ways to win them better than any other team.
The only downside was Milner going off. You know he has to have a bad problem for that to happen. Hopefully good news will come the next day or two on that. But it did lead to Curtis getting another PL 20 mins under his belt so swings and roundabouts. Jota in the form of his life with another great winner. Not Neco’s best outing with the rash peno he’ll learn from. But another 45 for him in his rapid development. He’s doing just sound for only his 8th PL game at 19 and will only continue to develop and improve with experience. Even the very mediocre Phillips with his glaring lack of pace did a steady, solid job again to his credit. When you go away and keep a clean sheet with Nat in your back 4 it says it all about this ridiculous gang of Reds and their determined mentality.
I think folk need to get used to having to grind games out over the next few mad months. It really is all about a survival of the fittest/ mentally strong right now and games invariably won’t be pretty in the main. Just lucky we have such top Mentality Monsters as we do aye?
Excellent start to the weekend. Over to City to react whilst we get all the rest and recuperation we can before Ajax.
That’s why we’re Champions!
Up the League leading Reds!
^^^^ I was just writing that in injury time and then VAR decided it’d intervene yet again.
How that’s clear and an obvious enough for VAR to intervene I don’t know but I really can’t be arsed narking about VAR. it just is what it is.
Another valuable point that should have been 3 on the way to #20.
Twice this week he's launched two snide attacks at Klopp, taking Jürgens words completely out of context.whats he said
I think that’s a very fair comment.Never got the hype for him. Yes he had a bit different tactical aproach but it was never sufficient in long run. The lad sitting on United bench was the big differential for them.
Talking of, a great pod I think you’ll appreciate mate-Oh Lallana :'(
