HUDDERSFIELD, 20-10-18, (A), PL

Nobody seemed interested in posting a pre-match blog on this game but now its taken place a few may wish to comment.  I thought it was our worst domestic performance of the season (Napoli was worse) and we were fortunatee to come away with the points.  Huddersfield fought really hard, which ws predicatable, and played rather well, which wasn't, but even so we should have cntrolled the game much better.  Some of our play in the final third was really sloppy and the decision making was often poor,  The goal, whuch was a brilliant move and finish, was in total contrast to much of the rest of our play.  Having said that, Salah, though not back to his best, was more of a threat than of late and Shaqiri had some good moments, while the back four were solid enough despite a few nervy moments.  Let's hope Mane is bck for Red Star as we missed his unpredictability.

  • Apologies guy's for not posting match blogs lately, I am on my holidays right now and won't be home til the 31st. I don't have much access to the internet.
    I haven't seen this game but for me a one nil win against hudderfields is disappointing and I say that because I felt this was a chance to score a few and to build on but from what I'm reading it was an awful performance. I know we're winning practically all our game but we want to win in a convincing manner as well, the way things are going city will most definitely win the lge and if not on points it will be by their far superior goal difference. Let's hope for a far better performance and more goals from the red star game.
  • I have to agree, at times it looked like we'd turned up to play a friendly whereas Huddersfield were playing a league game. There were a handful of snappy moves from us, including the goal, but the rest was rather pedestrian and lacking intensity. Huddersfield would be justified in feeling unlucky they didn't get at least a point. The one positive from the game was that Salah looked to have got his touch back and was playing more instinctively again. Shaqiri did an impressive job in linking up play and Gomez looks very versatile in defence. But when you see how City are blowing teams away (they've got a plus ten goal difference now) the question must be asked when exactly will we find our stride? It looks like Klopp is asking his team to play at less than maximum intensity in an effort to prolong their energy levels throughout the season but I've never thought Klopp's methodology quite clicks unless it's played at full throttle. Even though we look somewhat disjointed we are at least winning and when we finally do go up a gear we'll be at the right end of the table. I just hope our luck keeps lasting.

"Just going to make a slight adjustment to the team which i think makes sense, i'll take Milner out and put Lallana in, it seems Mane could be a doubt as well but i'll leave him in. Lallana looked very sharp recently and with Milners aging legs this…"

"We can forget our big result against Bayern because it’s not important anymore. This game against Fulham is number 31 and Man City will have a game in hand due to their FA Cup tie today which turned out to be a shambles with the officiating errors.…"

"Yes it's the last 8 and I wouldn't take advantage of Porto either and it's up to us to get it right to qualify for the semi-finals. I am glad corrupted Real Madrid were hammered in the second leg in the hands of Ajax. "

"My attitude is at this stage of the comp all teams are there on merit so there won't be any easy games from now on. Porto was definitly the easier draw, on paper at least so we done well in that sense but they have a big insentive to up their game a…"

"Don't get me wrong, everything points to us winning this match hands down, in fact I'd say the only thing that is likely to lead to us losing is if any of the players go into this game thinking, not necessarily consciously, that the game is already…"

This is almost a guarenteed 3points, can never be sure but very confident of a win here. Think we'll see Fabinho back from the start alongside Wijaldum and Milner, rest of the team picks itself.                                                       …

"I wanted to avoid a team with great wingers with Robertson suspended for the first leg.  I understand that Porto play 4-4-2 and there's no out and out winger in that system.  Klopp is right to sound cautious.  Porto cannot be as bad a team as we mad…"
