hi Steve

The Referee certainly wasn't on Liverpool's side. I wouldn't have said it was a certain penalty but we have seen many given for less. Liverpool ( due to team changes) lacked their usual aggression and sparkle. But when you are in multiple competitions you have to try to manage it. Klopp was not happy....he even complained about a dry pitch.!!!! Does he not know that it is the same for both teams??. Pity they didn't play today....it's p****** down here.

Last week United made 7 changes and still won 2-0.

Yesterday this paid off big time. He brought his top players back with great results.

This was United at their best. Aggressive and with pace they deservedly beat Spurs and they had to come back from a goal down.
This was a great match to watch with both teams going hammer and tongues at each other.

The ref was poor here too. He ignored Spurs constant diving, their were more dives than in the Commonwealth games diving competition.

Pogba and Sanchez both were great and for me Matich was the best player. He works under the radar very much like Michael Carrick he just gets on with it.

I will be watch the Pool next weak and know it will be a great game in which I hope Liverpool get a good result.

Well, Mike, it was an outrage. Liverpool were denied a stonewall penalty and West Brom should DEFINITELY have been down to ten men after Hegazi punched Ings in the stomach, apparently unseen by the referee.

Having said that, I thought that Joe Gomez was below par and Alberto Moreno was still the give-the-fans-a-heart-attack merchant. Maybe Jurgen rested one too many of his best.

Hi Steve

Yes very good article. I was one of the many that thought Liverpool would struggle when Cortinho went. Rightly much of the credit goes to Klopp's bringing in Van Dijk. This move has steadied, organised and energised the defence.

I don't know how much Van had to do with the emergence of the full backs, but I believe he has given the kids opportunities to attack something which they have taken on to great effect.

Hi Steve

United won quite easily despite some enterprising play by Bournemouth.
This despite 7 changes to the usual United team. Pogba was deservedly
Man of the Match.

This win keeps United in second place, where judging by the run ins they should be able to stay there. Of course I am not able to judge what impact on this will be with their involvement in the FA Cup.

Of course Liverpool have similar involvements in Europe.

Could be only decided on last day.

PSG are hopeless at the moment and Barca are a waning force, far too dependent on Messi, and Iniesta is not the force he was. Real Madrid are having a clean-out this summer, Ronaldo is getting on and Bale is going out of favour. Jurgen is doing a mighty job at Liverpool, he's building a team, not a bunch of superbrats, he's amazing at getting the best out of young, developing players, morale is great and why would he move?

At the moment I do not think Jurgen will leave Liverpool. I hope he doesn't because he has blown a stream of fresh air to our football.

But a year is a long time in football these days. In the 20 teams in the Premiere League less than a quarter have been with a club for more than a year.

What a bloody mess !!! United came out and for 90 minutes looked like a disorganised rabble.

They should have had an early penalty but it appears that referees have decided not to give them. But after that United reverted to passing backwards allowing West Brom to organise their defence.

They are a bogie team to United but that is no excuse for the tripe they displayed yesterday.

I haven't seen a better goal than that one all season. I also watched the whole game. Good to see Spurs getting licked by City - even if they win their match in hand they won't overtake Liverpool due to inferior goal difference. Chelsea are surely out of it now. Klopp's strengths seem to be getting great camaraderie in his squad and really improving raw talent. Mo, Ox, Robbo and TAA are growing fast. Virgil has settled the defence and Lovren is looking good. Next season be very afraid.

Hi Steve

I watched Liverpool v Bournemouth yesterday.

Liverpool were completely superior in every way. It was so one-sided that it became boring.

Mo Salah should be complimented on reaching 40 goals in one season. Another really good goal made to look so simple.

I have already given my views on the young full backs - Alexander Arnold & Robertson. But I have to commend them again. They are fantastic both in defense and attack. Wonderful range of accurate pinpoint passing feeds their hungry goalscorers through-out the game.

Years ago full backs were huge guys who kicked everything above the grass and lumbered around the edge of their penalty area.

Todays' fullbacks are now wingbacks and are extremely fit and pacey
athletes, These two lads are going to be fantastick players for the future.

Just getting ready to watch United - If we dont't win today they will want locking up.

Hi Steve

In my previous post I forgot to say that I was disappointed by the referee who made no attempt to stop Liverpool's attempts right from the kick-off to waste time. They did everything they could to slow the game down and the ref did absolutely nothing about it. Ok most teams do it towards the end of a game but from the start it is a little boring. It worked as it ruffled the City Players which upset their style of play.

I don't blame Liverpool the Ref was to blame. All good players will play to the referee. There was no time added at half time to allow for this and also for some hold-ups for injuries.

I don't think he was biassed just inexperienced.

Perhaps the rugby League method of logging time wasting and stoppages would help.

Hi Steve

Congratulations for a fine win. It was a very fair result. Liverpool clearly won over the two games.

I have seen some shots that say that the goal was just offside. But I am not convinced. It looked a goal to me. The usual problem of accurately deciding was he in an offside position WHEN THE BALL WAS PLAYED - I believe he wasn't, but there is just a split second in it.

It was similar to the United City game in that city played magnificently in the first halves. They could have scored four or five
But by good luck and fine defence Pool gained their deserved win.
I thought that they looked to be tiring when Salah did what he does best. That one goal completely shattered City but they kept trying.

Cheers Mike

ps I bet you are rather pleased that Barcelona went out.

Hell's teeth, I'm an emotional bloody wreck! After the final whistle I immediately wolfed down three of me mum's custard creams, it was that bad! What sheer character Liverpool showed after half-time when they looked like they might be basket cases. Was that goal offside or not? At first I thought not but I need to see replays. Whatever, it was football at its finest, both teams feisty, no negativity, both going out to attack (whenever they weren't under siege!) and win. Brilliant entertainment.

City are obviously going to go for it....they have no choice. Liverpool may have to play a game alien to them. Still it should be a cracker.

As I am completely unbiased for this game I can sit back and enjoy the ride.

I see that Liverpool asked United if they could use their training facilities. United said they needed them. Have.t Liverpool faciilties of their own? Or perhaps they thought it would save the players tiring
from that long run.

I lived in Inverness for four years and watched a lot of football while I was there. In those days Inverness had ( I think ) 3 three teams one of which was an all amateur team. They were called Thistle , Caledonian and clachnacuddin .

I can't remember if any played Brechin, Around this tome the leagues qw

Hi Raggy

RE Pogba I am not totally convinced by this one game. He needs to up his performance or we should get rid. The Pep refusal seems to be "Fake News".

And I think the jury's out on Sanchez too. Also the defence needs strengthening too judging by the way City pierced them at random, especially in the 1st half. Sterling missed at least four easy chances.

Steve - I agree that the penalty was the right decision. But hey I have seen many others worse than this turned down. Some you win and others you don't. We have had several like this turned down this year. The standard of refereeing over here is very poor. No wonder they haven't selected any British refs for the World Cup.

I was happy because at half time in the pub my Son checked the bookies for full time scores. They were offering 50 to 1 on a United win so we took a fiver each on it. £250 quid, plus a great United win.....I had a good dinner..!! "hic"

Yes they did. Down 2-0 and won 3-2 away from home to a team that has dominated the Premiere League all Season.

And we certainly didn't win ugly !!! Yes we had a bit of luck but that comes to everyone at times. This was our time.

The satisfying thing for me was the performance of Sanchez and Pogba. Hopefully this will give that break to give them the confidence to perform and do what we have needed to see from them.

Mourinho must have given a great talk at half time.

Great for us cos we were in the pub with all our mates some of whom are City fans. They were taking the **** up to half time. Lovely to see their faces as the goals rattled in.

good day for United fans. Especially as Liverpool could only draw. Gives us more chance of staying second in The League.

I can't see City holding Liverpool on Tuesday. Clopp will have them attacking. They only need one goal and City will have to come out and attack leaving openings for that ever dangerous Liverpool attack.

Whilst I have no admiration for Sheikh nor oligarch money in football, nor for the riches of the Premier League in general, I do think that we have by far the best two managers in Europe in Klopp and Guardiola. Pep was brilliant at Barca, the passing game coupled with the hit squad of Xavi, Iniesta and Messi imperious, and he's advanced City to way beyond their level of competence. Klopp's strength is that he really knows how to train players as well as to inspire the team (and crowd) to believe in the themselves. All other managers look like minnows, with the exception of Poch at Spurs.

There is simply no excuse for the actions of some of the assembled fans, even the one's who were "merely" shouting abuse should be ashamed of their behaviour.

The two Anfield matches against City this season have been an absolute credit to football. Last night's was a cracker but the earlier one was the best game I've watched in many a long year. Both teams came out in both games to play fast, exciting, attacking football. Exactly what the fans want to see. Sure, the bus incident was a disgrace ,but it was a handful or two of morons out of tens of thousands of well-behaved fans. Things like that happen a lot less often than they used to so let's hope the police can trace the culprits, with the help of the real supporters hopefully, so that we can put it behind us and remember the evening for the great footie.

Yes I saw it all last night and it was frightening at times.
These idiots spoil it all for real fans and supporters. They damaged the coach so badly that they needed another bus.

I think that the police should have been there to protect the bus and the City team. The " fans " had announced that they were going to " give the bus a lively arrival." But as far as I could see there was no protection.

I don't know if EUFA will do anything about this disgrace to football.

If they don't no doubt the City " fans" will try to respond.

hi Steve

Congratulations. Great game to watch. Liverpool overwhelmed City from the start. They were in their faces and pressed and tackled everything in sight.

City were put off their game and fLiverpool's devastating attack took what chances came.

AS you say City improved in the second half and Liverpool ( despite missing a couple of defenders,) held City at bay and prevented that important away goal.

The two fullbacks were fantastic causing havoc in the city defence in the first half and then adapting to the change which meant they had to defend. They were very impressive now in keeping City out.
Of course it is not over yet, this was only the first half - so to speak.

One thing that spoiled things was the attacking of City's Team Bus as they arrived. This could have upset some of the city players.

But as I say, congrats and I look forward to the next one.

Cheers Mike

Yes for once Liverpool needed to win ugly. At this important time in the season when every game is important either for promotion or demotion teams have to win by whatever method they can. Crystal Palace scored first and then tried to park the bus. You can't do this with a team like Liverpool unless you know what you're doing. Palace did,nt and paid for it.

Most of the remaining games will be a scramble. But non the less exciting.

Hold on to your hat.

Couldn't watch all of it but it looked like Liverpool won ugly. I hear that Sadio was lucky not to be sent off!

Hi Steve

Back to Status Quo......!!!

I managed to watch some of the Liverpool game before watching United.

It was entertaining and for much of the game either team could have won it but a draw looked as though it was on the cards. But up popped Salas again to steal the match. What a player !!! Liverpool are defending better under the direction Van Dyk . They look more settled and organised. He is paying off his fee very quickly.

On to United. They showed more enterprise than recently. Lucacu scoring an early goal. After this it was almost one way traffic with United having several chances, one of which Sanchez scored a long awaited goal.
Lingard had a hand in both goals and was a pain in Swansea's side.
He is starting to develop into a good player. Could be a dark horse in the World Cup team ??

Looking forward to the City game , it should be a belter.

Cheers

Mike
