Our strongest team, I reckon.

21 Jan 2018 19:34:48
Top targets this summer should be Alisson (GK) and Toni Kroos (CM) and give Emre a new contract and assurances he will start as the deepest midfielder (his best position in my opinion

Alisson

Gomez
Matip
Van dijk
Robertson

Emre
Keita
Kroos

Salah
Mane
Firmino.

It really does bother me the amount of people who have Matip in their preferred line up for next season. It's almost as though i must've been watching a different player all year.

I would rather have Gomez, Lovren or even Klavan in there ahead of Matip.

The amount of times he is out of position, not strong enough or doesn't even try to make up for his errors, is criminal.

I don't like slating players but not putting effort in is unforgivable to me. I don't mind players making mistakes, it happens to everyone, but making them game after game and then not trying to make up for them and just giving up is not on.

22 Jan 2018 17:45:48
Completly agree Reddawn, both Lovren and Klavan have looked more assured than Matip this season IMO.

21 Jan 2018 18:50:36
Believe tomorrows line up be as follows:_

Karius

TAA Matip VVD Robertson

OX Can Wini

Salah Firmino Mane


Red deano
YNWA.

I read a post earlier saying about us having our strongest squad in years. Then I thought about our strongest team. So pick a starting 11 from Liverpool’s players, past and present, since the turn of the century. You can imagine that they are at their peak.

Reina, Finnan, Carragher, Hyypia, Riise, Alonso, Gerrard, Coutinho, Salah, Suarez, Fowler.

Torres was in over Fowler as he left in 2001 after being sidelined a bit, and wasn’t the same player when he returned in 2006 but as I said, imagine they are in their prime and in form, so God can stay. Salah gets in for this reason aswell, he’s in top form now, hopefully it will continue. You may pick one manager. I will stand by our current one as although I think 08/ 09 Rafa would do best with the squad, I love watching us play at the moment. Klopp as boss, may need to change Hyypia. If I had Rafa I’d probably exchange Coutinho for Mascherano aswell.

The formation would be a 4-4-2ish current system.

Based on it being since 2000, I'd swap Fowler for Torres. I'd also switch Coutinho for Mane. When Mane is out we miss him horribly. When Coutinho is out, we actually win more games!

Well done to the boys yesterday they were in the main excellent. I've only briefly scanned down the page, but I can't believe nobody seems to have mentioned Lovrens laughable attempts at defending on City's last 2 goals which left us hanging on. Yet again storming out of the middle leaving a massive hole, then I think it was the third goal he storms out leaves the hole then ball watches as the ball goes out wide and half heartedly tries to get back into position and then basically just gets in the way and doesn't try to defend the ball in.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the lad is uncoachable and has got to go.

Robertson and chamberlain were excellent, wijnaldum quietly effective and his best game for a while, but firminho wow, that kid is some player, forget a team of carraghers, change that to Bobby F.

Reflection of game kranius poor for first goal came for few balls after that seemed just to fall over not impressed stand out players oxx seemed to pop up everywhere maybe his time to shine mane the same was everywhere firminio not far behind goes to show when we lost earlier to them when mane sent off they destroyed us in a space of 20min we scored 3 in 9min which in any other team 3goal advantage u should be on cava 😂 Liverpool tho seem to self implode how many hands went to heads wit the city last ball in and free header side netting 9 out of 10 of us the other lad was in Jack's or still picking himself up after a crazy fee min where we nearly blew it 3pts happy days 4goals happy days 3 conceded needs sorting.

Just spare a thought for Raheem Sterling. How many times he ended on losing side when we face citeh.

Sorry but gini was poor again today. It was an amazing result and there is probably no need for negativity but he gave the ball away so much today. Every time he gets the ball he slows the game down. Apart from his purple patch last season he doesn't do anywhere near enough for me. It's surprising considering he started as an attacking player but he seems lost as soon as he gets the ball in the opponents half. I think we have the perfect opportunity here to sign a player who can make us tick. I know we have Keita on his way but from what I've seen his main strengths are energy and ball carrying. I think we need someone who let's the ball do the work, a midfield creator who makes things happen. Look at de bruyne today, he didn't have his best game in a city shirt but every time he got the ball my backside clenched. Pipco was an amazing player but I actually think trying to fit the "Fab Four" in the same team was too our detriment, Phil was better when he played from the left, when in a midfield three we were inbalanced as he wasn't good enough tactically to play that position in my opinion. I think a lemar or goretzka coming in actually makes us a better a team then when we had Phil in the middle. Don't get me wrong I would have picked Phil above mane if he was playing in a front three but it's not about individuals, if we make the right signing I think we can actually become stronger regardless of losing our best individual. Also madness if anyone thinks karius is good enough, we need a keeper, the bloke has spaghetti wrists.

All I had to do was read your first sentence before replying and I would like to ask did you watch the game today?

15 Jan 2018 01:42:00
No spooked I didn't watch the game, I thought I would base my opinion on a dream I had last night. sigh.

15 Jan 2018 02:46:12
Yeah I thought as much, at least your honest.

15 Jan 2018 04:56:46
Gini loses the ball much too often for me but his tracking and running off the ball was decent.

15 Jan 2018 05:28:58
Ginis best ability is ball retention and safe play. He doesn’t lose the ball too much. If anything he plays too cautiously for me. Thought he was excellent today.

15 Jan 2018 08:35:34
The things with gini is that he slows down the play way too much, always looks go play safe. Even when a clear forward pass is available he'll play it safe. He holds the ball too long and sometimes loses it instead of passing it to someone else. Also his decision making is not the best in attacking areas.

15 Jan 2018 01:01:03
What a great game today! Not even that bothered about being reduced from 4-1 to 4-3, I'll take a win against City any day of the week, never mind a City whose confidence is sky high! Couldn't watch the last two minutes mind, I was hiding behind my hands at the end!

Just wanted to say how impressed I am with our fullbacks today. Robertson did an incredible job of containing an in-form Sterling, and worked tirelessly to put the pressure on City. Joe Gomez is also looking really good, a few moments aside where he was caught sleeping, I'm sure this can be ironed out with game time and experience, but what a great defender he is turning into!

Bobby really showed his class today, and Gini was great as well, in fact the whole team put a shift in, it was a pleasure to watch us running the best side in the league ragged!

Anyway, don't be too frustrated by the three conceded, let's enjoy the victory!

Have a good night guys.

Sorry guys but as much as I loved the match we could have prevented all the goals! don't start abusing me now😒first one was mistake by Marius. and second and third. we stopped pressing after our 4th. there was no organisation in defense at the end. and ed01 wasn't Aguero offside? lik for the last header and for kdb's cross in first half which he nearly scored?

{Ed001's Note - yes but we will never know if the lino would have put his flag up or not.}

15 Jan 2018 04:57:53
I stopped watching when it was 4-2, I have a weak heart.

15 Jan 2018 12:11:36
Sorry guys, I’m going to celebrate the win and leave the match analysis to everyone else!

15 Jan 2018 12:22:08
There was a marked offside after that free kick. Referee hand was high up in the air, so everything was okay :) They saw it.

15 Jan 2018 00:52:47
What. a. game!

Hats off lads, to break Man City's unbeaten run and avenge the last defeat is no small feat. Everyone was up for this one and a deserving victory.

A few thoughts
1) Firmino's cheeky chip will live long in the memory, a moment of pure class under pressure. I absolutely love this guy and again at the heart of most of our best play
2) great to see Mane coming back into form and both his and Salah's goals were excellently taken
3) the main reason we won this match though was midfield. Ox was excellent all night, Gini had his best game in ages (even if lacking confidence in their box), and Can was immense
4) close call but Robertson was probably my MOM for what he did to Sterling an some superb cover work. looked a real player and I'm glad he's in defence, looks solid
5) CBS and Gomez had iffy games, some superb moments and some mistakes but overall did well against a top attack until the closing 10mins
6) Not Karius's best game (much better than Edersons though! ), but I'm glad he's in the side and hope we stick with him, let's see if he can prove himself

Great, great win although it did raise the question what we'll do without Can. Well in lads and congrats!
