Well we got away with that one today, and thank god we did. For me the best team lost.
Once again we started off very lethargic in everything we did, and couldn't put 2 passes together.
After every defeat we have had against the 'lesser' teams we get the same old thing from the players - 'we know what we need to do and we will work hard and be ready next time'. Until next time comes though, and same old, same old.
But 3 points and that's all that matters right now.
It will still be a right struggle to make the top 4, and maybe we will do it, but we will be sweating when the teams around us play their games in hand.

Arsenal are capitulating as usual and United need to win both games in hand by about a +8 goal difference to go past us.
They are both distracted by other cups anyway.
I am looking up the table myself. City are there for the taking in our next game, and Spurs without Kane are just draw merchants.

I don't disagree with your post, KBL cos Burnley did play well and have been causing probs for big teams on the road all season. However, i will say that our boys came back in the second half and showed, grit, belief, desire and great determination to turn the game around and remain dogged in seeing out the result. This has been missing vs the lesser teams since this year began so glad to see some fight in the team. A lot more needs to be done tho as we go forward.

I think you guys need a shot of reality, you complain when Liverpool play well but can't break teams down leading to draws and defeats then when the team plays not the best but wins you still complain. I really feel you will never get off their backs and full commit to supporting them.

Great post bruffio. Was interesting that our fans and media were quick to point out we scored with our 1st shot on target yesterday, yet failed to point out that Burnley (who I may add played well) also scored with 1st and only shot on target! As they did in last game. Also Swansea 3 shots 3 goals! We can't play great like we did against Arsenal every game. And all top teams win games like we did yesterday and get praised for it, yet we (and media) want to hammer our team for it! Well done the players who dug deep and got job done, I for one will take a few more performances like that with same result! Get behind the team we are Liverpool.

For me, that first half (up to, but not including the extra minute) was deja vu of most of our 2017 - poor passing, complacent against a smaller team, 1-0 down (although fair play, good goal), fruitless attacking chances and impatience.
Hopefully Gini's goal will light a fire up their arses for the rest of the season. Second half performance, while far from stellar, showed the raw determination to turn it around and grind out a result. It's the sort of attitude more of the players need week in, week out.
I won't judge them solely on this result, nor the City game. Consistency is the word, they get that then I'll say the tide has turned.

Love your posts Jolly, Bruffio and Z99. It seems that some of our "fans" and the media were hoping or expecting us to drop points so they can have something to write about and moan about BUT to their chagrin, our boys altho not playing well, stepped up and fought back from a goal down to take the points.
Now, they are moaning that we didn't play well and that the "better team lost" or that we should BUT when we smash the bigger teams, they'll say "let's see if we can do it vs a lesser team" and on and on. Utter nonsense.
WE WON! So I don't care if people's feelings are hurt cos we won ugly. Mou has made a career out of that yet many hail him for his "ability to win ugly" via his often used "stoneage" tactics BUT when Klopp and the team grind out a result (something they've been slated for not doing), the knives are still out. Again, WE WON so such people need to get over themselves.

"Draw merchants" strange thing to say after a 6-0 win without Kane yesterday.
