Right. Final score 3-3 i can’t say am disappointed but i won’t hide that am really frustrated. We could have won the game so many times.
3 things Klopp needs to iron out. Firstly the defence. It’s a matter of transfers. Its been a problem with every single manager i can remember so i don’t see how it’s Klopp’s fault we can’t stand on our own two feet or even win a header. Players simply not good enough. Unless there is a way to implant into their head the idea of not being soft. Mignolet didn’t have much to do in the 2nd half but those first 2 goals were unforgivable. Its a goalkeeping standard to cover the closed angle at the near post of your goal (first goal) and i won’t even start on the corner although the ball should have been stopped long before reaching Mignolet and for that I blame the defenders. Toure found himself far too up-field at times while Sakho’s feet must be 90 years old. His tackling is awesome though.
Secondly the movement. Liverpool players are static. No its not the passing the peoblem. We have really good passers among exceptions. The reason every 3rd pass is astray is because there is no movement. When you are marked you need to free yourself and give options to the player holding the ball. Unfortunately at Liverpool whenever a player is holding the ball, all others stare.
Thirdly. Finishing. Well this coincides with movement a bit cause if our strikers were moving they could have found themselves in much better positions and take their time. There isn’t much i can tell you about this. How hard is it to keep the ball down? At least test the keeper.
Today we were saved by our battling. The guys really gave their all. Had a lot of passion and an inspired Firmino found the net twice. If it wasn’t for his 2 goals my MOTM award would go to Henderson who bossed the midfield. He ran, he passed well, he was cool. A true captain’s performance.
The way i saw the team tonight i refuse to accept anything less than a win with the scums. 4 points from 2 big games with so many injuries, i will be happy. Bring it on Mannure.
