I think it's a Liverpool thing. We seem to be incapable to beat the first man, no matter who takes the corners.
This seems like a forever thing.

I remember an old Liverpool fanzine from (I think) the 90s called 'Another Wasted Corner.'

I think I still might have a few copies lurking about the house along with copies of 'Through The Wind And Rain' fanzine.

I never get excited by us getting a corner.

Yeah maybe you're right - he certainly won't have been through a season like this before with this much constant pressure.

Personally I think we still cross the ball far too much from too deep from both sides - especially when we're trying to 'force' a goal
It's fine if the defence isn't set and they're near the byline - obviously the both have the ability to deliver great balls in.
But most of the time I don't know who we're supposed to be crossing the ball for?!
Last night it was clear once Bayern had dropped deeper we were getting sweet fuck all in the air against them.

Would like to see both full backs give and go more or try and create - but I guess that's where mental / physical tiredness does play a part - its easier to ping it in

Bit in bold is so bloody true. I think when so much emphasis on our wing-play is down to Robertson and Trent, I feel that at times they need to have more conviction to drive at opposing full-backs. Low cut backs from the byline are so much more likely to cause chaos in the box, as opposed to whipping a cross in from the corner of the box that Robertson and Trent seems to favour.

Much better tonight but hes seemingly been training with Moreno too long, seems to have developed a penchant for stupid tackles on players going nowhere.

I know why it feels that way, yet we've scored more goals from corners than any other team in the PL this season. All teams are basically shit at them!

Moreno disease creeping in and for some reason he was or seemed to be scared of Deulofeu, backing off him too much. Still a class act though and in Liverpool left back tradition, fast becoming a cult hero.

I can remember 2 against Hughes I think (and both seemed soft as he just fell to the floor under little contact). Seems a bit harsh

Agree, the guy probably just sleeps less and simply has more important things on his mind all day, therefore these mistakes creep in.

He was very complimentary wasnt he? Ex Utd. and Bluenose too.

I thought he was incredibly good today. TAA on the other hand, despite moments of quality, was sloppy.

Wasn't Robbo's best game by a long chalk. I wouldn't have licked that out from the highlights but he was a touch off. Still a half decent game though.

Agreed, what an incredible pass by Alexander Arnold that got behind their whole defence and took out the goalkeeper and laid an almost certain goal on a plate - Robertson must have been mad at Mane for getting in the way of his first goal!

Robbo scored last season against Brighton!

Agreed it might have been an easier tap in for him. But he joked about it on SM so it's all good. Thought Firmino's pass to TAA was a peach as well.

He has not scored yet this season, I believe, so that would have been a pearler of a first goal.

5 things we love about Robbo:
1. Can peel an orange with his left foot, but probably cant even brake with his right foot.
2. Presses anything that moves.
3. Never shuts up.
4. His clingfilm-like complexion makes me look bronzed.
5. Carlsberg dont do left backs but if they did....... Happy birthday mate 🎁

Not his best match going back and it just compounded it all there.

Anyway, there's a good chance a well-rested and drilled Moreno being the closest neighbour on the pitch to van Dijk can come in and do the job for one evening.
