Football: dropping clangers and scoring bangers

Recommended Posts

Allison and Matip are back but Salah misses the match due to the ankle injury he picked up before the int. break. Origi starts in his place instead.

Our full squad for the game:

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Origi, Firmino.

Subs: Adrian, Lovren, Milner, Keita, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana.

Scotland will probably be an independent nation and you'ed probably still find Young playing for United.

Liverpool have been poor again. Origi is so bad, he's just completely clueless when it comes to making runs and positioning.

Eh - that can go either way, imo.

Will agree that Atkinson has let a few of them go, and not just united ones (liverpool defender on the touchline was a foul too)

Origi fell too easily there.

It's mostly been United today though, Just Scott McTominay on his own has steamrolled through the back of 3 or 4 players unpunished.

Not to take away from us being awful though. We've been consistently shit at Old Trafford under Klopp.

Well, at least the disallowing the goal is consistent with how VAR has been used this season.

OTOH, VAR has been consistently shit.

Only reading events on the ticker, as in too lazy to look for a stream.

But my ticker said, that LIndelöf basically fouled Origi before the United goal. Like in no intention to play the ball, just going for the player.

I missed most of the first half coz of family stuff but having seen the incident back fucking lol at Origi realising he'd given the ball straight to McTominay and diving on the faintest contact to try to get out of it. And people are claiming that VAR call was wrong? :lol:

Yeah - I don't see it either. Not every contact is a foul. Origi was trying to buy it.

Anyway so far this is showing the danger in Liverpool getting used to relying on the referee for favourable overprotection. As soon as they face a team big enough that refs won't call for fouls on physical but fair challenges just coz Liverpool want that to happen, they start to wilt. Whole team of Daniel Jameses. McTominay is their living nightmare.

Lindelof has kicked him, it’s not like it was just a coming together. How’s that not a foul?

Dan James is the size of Kylie Minogue, only he goes over more easily. McTominay is a physical player, sure, but fucking Dan James?

...that is exactly my point dude. Your entire team is acting like James does whenever McTominay or anyone puts in a challenge harder than a puff of wind.
