Adam Lallana may only have entered the contest in the 92nd minute, shortly before Sadio Mané was awarded a penalty after being felled in the box by Marc Albrighton,…

Does this explain Mane's reaction?

3503022697?profile=RESIZE_710x

This handy little diagram shows the chances created by each of the front three players for the other front three players in the Premier League since the start of the 2017-18 season. What's noticeable is that Mane's chance creation for Salah is getting on towards double the number of chances Salah's created for Mane. Is Mane aware of this difference? We'll probably never know but it…

The Road To Istanbul 2019-20

The Group stages draw has been kind to us for this season’s UEFA Champions league. We share the same group E with Napoli, Salzburg and Genk. The plus side is the geographical locations of Italy, Austria and Belgium so flight distances are closer to home.

Bonus is that Alisson won best keeper award and VVD won best defender of last season’s UEFA Champions League. Also VVD won UEFA UEFA's Men's Player of the Year for 2018-19.

MADRID CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL PAGE

2540045231?profile=RESIZE_710x

As we won't have a match between now and the Champions League final, and so no match blog through which to share our views, I thought it may be useful to have a page which people can use to post and discuss anything in connection to the Madrid final. I'm sure closer to the day itself someone will start a match blog but until then feel free to use this page to post any thoughts or information that's…

So, how do we feel about the quarterfinal draw?

1435675729?profile=RESIZE_710x

The two teams I wanted to avoid at the quarterfinal stage were Juventus and Barcelona, basically because Ronaldo and Messi were in top form during the previous round and while it's possible to outplay great teams it's much harder to outplay great teams with genius players. Thankfully, we've dodged those two particular bullets and have been drawn…

Not Enough Defenders

Looks as if we are stuck with Lovren at CB for at least 6 weeks.  Who would have thought that we would need more support at that position a few weeks ago?  If appears that VVD might be the only senior CB available if one more goes down to injury.  Gomez is going to have to have his appearences monitored for a while, Matip is physically unreliable, and Lovern is just unreliable perood.  I'm not a manager, but that sounds like a CB crisis to me.  We need another CB body in ASAP!  Any ideas for…

LIVERPOOL'S PRE-SEASON GAMES

With Liverpool kicking off their pre-season yesterday with a 7-0 win over 6th tier Chester I thought I would post a pre-season thread, though at some stage when we come up against more serious opposition someone (Warrior?) may wish to start a blog around a particular game.  The first half team had a bit of a struggle to find any rhythm.  Harry Wilson's two goals were well taken and his movement was good.  Curtis Jones was impressive and payed a lovely pass for Wilson's second.  Fabinho hit…

WORLD CUP

I thought I would add a World Cup thread to the site so we can comment on the action and in particular on the performance of those Liverpool players who are participating and those with whom we are linked.  So far it has been an enjoyable competition with some stunning goals and at least one brilliant game,Spain v Prtugal (or should that be Spain v Ronaldo)  I thought Lovren had a very solid first game for Croatia though Nigeria were poor and hardly tested him.  Henderson continued his good…

Time for a Karius rethink?

34155270?profile=original

When it first emerged that Karius had been sent to get tested for concussion by the club I, like many others, thought it was an exercise in detoxifying his reputation after his disastrous display in the Champions League final. However, after reviewing the footage of the incident between Ramos and Karius and reading numerous expert opinions I've become…

Kiev - Some Thoughts On The Controversies

Was Salah nobbled?

I'm going to say something controversial but hear me out before you string me up from the nearest tree - I don't think the MAIN intention of Ramos was to put Salah out of the game. Even though his reputation would suggest it was perfectly possible that Ramos meant to nobble Salah I don't think the sequence of events and where they took place on the pitch point to that being the obvious conclusion,…
