Well, thank god this is pre-season and not an actual competitive match.

Man United are absolutely battering us, right now.

Have to say Tyler Morton has looked very capable though, best not to mention the rest though.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hilarious watching Twitter decide that EtH is some sort of wizard off the back of 45 minutes of a friendly.

Although I'm certain some doomers will be along to say we're in trouble and need another 52 players because of it.

12 Jul 2022 15:39:36
As I seem to say every other day, most internet dwelling football fans are fickle imbeciles and have very, VERY short memories. This happens every year. It's a friendly. They do not matter and nothing can be gauged from them.

Twitter and its consequences for the human race have been catastrophic.

12 Jul 2022 15:43:32
Absolutely hate loosing to
Them! friendly or not! Brutal.

12 Jul 2022 16:09:16
I blame that atrocious ‘kit’; marketing tail wagging the dog. Yuk.

12 Jul 2022 16:16:57
It was a rough watch. Players looked like they had weights on the legs. Klopp should have kept them fresh for the game. Only joking of course. Tough watch though.

Also these players only starting preseason. united started earlier. We knew this was coming.

2 things

Rhys and Nat are never going to get in the team
Unless there’s a catastrophe both need to be sold

Other than that it was a game where

The youngsters outperformed the first group of players like hendo and nothing but rustiness
And holiday vibe

Great game to get whipped and then put everyone in training mode for the premier league

This is vital I never believed in beating east teams I prefer hard teams to get me in the zone

Soooo Fabio an Nunez an diaz look fine
Salah is always sharp in the beginning

I only worry about firmino but il keep my fingers crossed for him this season.

12 Jul 2022 16:41:06
While it's always horrible to lose to those cnuts, they went out will a full squad and we changed the team 3 times during the match.

12 Jul 2022 17:03:25
Being played in Bangkok I thought it might have ended in a Thai.

12 Jul 2022 17:10:35
Utds season has peaked in Jul and I’m looking forward to their we beat Liverpool in a friendly dvd release and open top bus tour.

Nevertheless Klopp will be fuming. I would imagine he’s not happy losing family games to his wife or son let alone a friendly to UTD.

12 Jul 2022 17:49:34
One things for sure, they need get fit. I think my Nan would’ve skipped past a few of them.

12 Jul 2022 17:36:14
It may only be the 1st friendly but Morton and Tom Hill looked much better players than Keita. The MU kid Iqbal looked a class above too. Struggle to understand how he looks like a completely different player to the one at Leipzig. Perplexed that the club are offering him another long term contract especially as he can't play in some countries.

12 Jul 2022 17:58:21
Klopp out.

{Ed014's Note - I think it’s mean of you to give them so much false hope! ???

12 Jul 2022 18:06:46
??. Couldn’t resist Ed.

Elliott seemed roaring ready for the season. Noticed Mabaya and Chambers too (even though it was Mabaya's error that caused the first goal) .

It was hilarious watching Fred celebrate his goal; like he had clinched the FA or UCL Cup or something. It's a training match you muppet, and you were lucky the ball trickled out to you.

He came close to scoring, but man oh man, Nunez is going to be a powerful presence in and around opposing penalty boxes.

There's a big difference on how effective our pressing is between our starting 11 and the rest. That was the difference in this warmup.

12 Jul 2022 18:55:39
Aray how did the forwards Diaz, Bobby, Nunez and Salah look during their 30 min outings.

12 Jul 2022 20:16:46
JK23. Bobby was worrying; seemed to never get out of first gear. Must have been the hot muggy weather, or he doesn't seem ready yet (it's too soon anyway, duh) . Diaz looked like the usual Diaz. Running past defenders with ball at feet. But he's got to add some variety to his game. Everyone knows he's going to cut in inside and in exactly the same place on the pitch every time. Nunez looked like a threatening presence in that penalty box. Those blisters didn't help but he was playing through the pain. And he was pressing and closing down; he's watched Firmino play. Salah looked like the old Salah. A curler hit the post, he almost scored on a one on one, and twice he was looking for Nunez with passes. I was impressed the most by Elliott. He's raring to go. Carvalho will need some time, I think. All in all a good first warm up. The score was irrelevant because all of the goals were due to silly mistakes we normally would not make.

Cheers mate ?.

We gave everybody a run out to shake off the cobwebs - the first 19 players back after the summer break only got back last Monday. It is a nonsense to start analysing wh played badly and who played well. They are just at the start of the road in preparing for 22/ 23.

The only thing I’d take from it is as a gee-up for the lads when we actually play United in a proper match.

12 Jul 2022 23:50:24
from a United perspective, there is something in generating that feel good factor early on in a new manager's reign. particularly if they are focused towards development. could be a good thing for them. If we were in their shoes we would take it as a positive sign.

13 Jul 2022 00:50:32
Without looking it up can anybody remember our first pre-season game last season? What the score was and who played in the match?

13 Jul 2022 05:14:48
Faithinworks, i think they might have peaked.

13 Jul 2022 08:26:51
@JK we actually started the game on fire with Carvalho and Diaz hitting the post. Diaz was giving them problems. Unfortunately the defence made way too mistakes which shifted the momentum.

I thought Ox looked like he was really up for it. Would be great if he could rediscover his pre injury 2018 form but I get the feeling Elliott, Carv and Jones are above him in the pecking order.

13 Jul 2022 14:24:56
Really, are we analysing a preseason game this much? Must be a slow day.

Anybody know the price of tea in China?
