I think players are losing their composure in front of goal against us  because of who we are and the way we're playing.  Whether they'd admit it or not they're scared of us now and d9mt fancy their chances against us the way the once did.

It's not luck. We're in their heads. All of their heads.

I think you also have to give credit to our defenders and keeper, whilst opposition teams are making chances, our defenders are closing the angles to stop them becoming clear cut. For example the Defelou chance for Watford, Gomez forces him wider meaning that eventually Alisson has the angle pretty much covered whilst simultaneously cutting the angle for the cut back into the middle. Van Dijk is brillant at this, remember the Sissoko chance at Anfield last season. Also if you look at the Son chance yesterday where he 'should have made it 1-1', really? we'd got three defenders back at him to prevent a clear shot. They had that other chance which they probably should have scored but it was a very sharp chance. We missed quite a few really good chances, Ox, Salah, Mane, Firmino probably should have scored. We played well but were a little wasteful.

After timing that in a shocking way (kicked off just as I boarded a flight) it was interesting to read the reports of the game and then watch it back without any context.

Although generally most reports heap praise on the team, no one seemed to describe how dominant we really were. I know even the team and Klopp were unhappy about how we played at times in the second half. But this was at their ground, with a pain in arse manager and we should have been out of sight. Yet it seemed from the press that we didnt play well they had great chances and all the talk was of a handball or throw in that shouldn't have been awarded. There is a level of desperation out there to find any reason that we win other than the fact that we are that good.

Yes, they had a few chances (one glaring one) late in the game but we dominated them. The only opportunities in the first half they had were down to Hendo or Gomez getting caught on the ball and they were hardly chances. We could have scored 3 or 4, Bobby alone could have had a couple, but there were also great positions that chances were not created from. Final balls from Trent and Robbo not up to the usual standard, Mo and Sadio took the wrong option a few times yet still we dominated. Even in the second half there is a period from around 55-70 were they can't get near us.
What a team this is.

As for Tyler and his commentary, he is becoming a parody now. In the 2nd minute when ox hit the post, you would have never known, there was almost no reaction. I have no problem with him bringing up the 4-1 as it really is the last time they got anything from us, but the desperation for a goal late on was palpable.

Others have complained about Atkinson and I agree he gave us nothing, yet almost every time they felt contact they went down and got free kicks. Identical incidents against Henderson or Gini resulted in play on. Ironically as often happens with teams that get everything from a ref they start appealing for everything, even the ridiculous and for once he stopped. Anthony Taylor was far worse than him today.

Brilliant win. Now on to the Mancs. I hope their win gives them some confidence to attack us and then we better them.

MOTD spent half their analysis saying we were lucky with refereeing decisions. Henderson apparently handballed it and it should have been a Spurs throw and we "got away with one". And they used two incidents to say Robertson lucky not to be sent off.

I haven't watch MOTD (and wont bother now!), but it was glaringly obvious when redknapp interviewed Hendo and asked him about the impact of VAR on the players, he asked incredulously was that about me! Its astonishing that having seen it replayed back anyone can think it hit his hand! its straight from his head onto Alli's hand.
As for all the stills of Robbo's challenge its incredible that there are journalists who use that to justify a call for a red, including the Sunday times using it as one of their game pictures. Again real time he stretches and plays the ball first, you can argue its a foul but probably not even any colour of card.

Actually Lineker tried to interject over Murphy’s shite about Henderson “being lucky” by saying it was an Alli handball. Murphy just droned on. Piss poor pundit and paid a fortune for that level of trolling

Indeed he did - made a laughable comment about wanting to play for an English speaking manager when he fucked off t Chartlon. :wanker

Didn't have much time for him by the stage Rafa arrived anyway. Got sick of the sight of the lazy fucker strolling around the pitch.

He was good for a couple of years but never kicked on.

??? I think the cross came from our left side which Robertson and Virgil were defending.

It was interesting to see Spurs attack Robertson's side instead of Trent, when it's usually the other way round.

Yes, the cross did come from our left. I didn't notice anything particularly wrong with how Robertson or Virgil defended the cross, but on the replay it was clear either Gomez or Trent had failed to track the run. I don't know whose role it was but for sure someone should have been marking. I remember seeing the camera cut to Klopp who was absolutely furious.

Yeah, opponents usually attack down our right, I suppose because Trent is up a lot more than Robertson (no stats to back this up), or perhaps because Virgil tends to play on our left so attackers try to avoid him.

For the avoidance of doubt, I am not picking on our defenders; I was just pointing out that I don't think we played badly other than for a couple of errors which led to Spurs' big chances.

fuck them and their salty tears..haha..even better if they fume their heads off at every one of our win. Its should been this and that and this and that. They can never run out of excuses and will flip flop every decision and moments imaginable to fit their agenda and narrative.

the lo celso and son shots seriously had me worried though. If it were on target then for sure it would have gone in. No alisson could have saved that.

I thought the Lo Celso one was going in to be honest. Allison had already gone toward the right and the ball went toward the gaping hole on Allison's left and for that split second I thought 1-1.

I don’t remember it being that bad but I guess plucky olde Spurs were denied a win by that diving cheat Mane. If the ref had given them the throwin then they would have won 6-0 as they clearly had the better chances. Oh and VAR clearly missed Hendo’s handball and should have awarded a red card to him. Bloody LiVARpool and their brown envelopes that is ruining this year’s league.

Of all the attributes this team has in spades I think one of the most admirable is it's patience. Slow, steady, calm when we need to be. Lethal when it counts.

It's taken a couple of years for the players be comfortable with this sort of patience. Many times in other seasons under Klopp we have tried to be patient, in attack and defence and we might of succumbed to a late goal (maybe lack of belief or niggling doubt) or ended up forcing the attack and not finding a late goal. Home crowd would get restless and now that patience has also been reflected in the crowd. They feel more comfortable and that helps the players on the pitch.

Yep, same here. Was a dangerous ball in and you just see it in your mind before it’s happened. Once I saw it going back across goal I’d made peace with it being 1-1. Felt harder to miss!

Apart from their 2 chances, we controlled the game, and played well within ourselves for large periods.  Fabinho coming back now is definitely massive.  Hopefully Matip back too so we are well covered at the back.

The article is spot on about Mourinho. It enraged a few Spurs fans, god knows why. His post-match comments show nothing whatsoever has changed about the man. Always looking for excuses, cynical and deluded. Poch may have been struggling, but if I was a Spurs fan I'd be totally pissed about the management change.

This whole "we had more rest than they did, they've played more games" etc seems to only matter in regards to cumulative fatigue, no? Such as certain players likelier to get injured due to an intense schedule? I say that because you wouldn't have known that we rested our first team last weekend if you watched that second half. And even going back before the new year, Wolves had only 48 hours between games before we played them and we had 24 more hours worth of rest, and they matched us all the way. Spurs put out a full strength line up in the FA Cup while we rested everyone and they didn't look any less tired than we did. If anything we looked leggier in the second half. And unless United pick up an injury or two against Wolves on Wednesday, that extra game they have isn't going to impact their performance one bit come next weekend. They're not going to come to Anfield more "tired" or other such bollocks. Having more time off seems to put us off our groove.
Trade-off, I suppose.

You rest more, you wear off a little fatigue but then you lose rhythm - for a short while. Light training and a game against an easy opponent lets you maintain some of that rhythm, but it does not really do much for the pace and intensity.

Its a trade-off and this has ALWAYS been the case for us and everyone else in January and February. Even pre-Premier League era.

People say January(and February) has been Jurgen's problem months, but these have been all our managers' problem months, because January is right after the Christmas schedule- and that has always been hectic. It's also almost in the middle of the season and most coaches optimize their training for a specific half- midtables and relegation favorites optimize for the start of the season, while top-half teams usually optimize for the 2nd half of the season. Form across the league is either slowly picking up or coming down during those months and so results are always mixed.
It's been a problem month each season for every team in the league.

January is more about winning games trough tactics.

I think it was just a case that we set a frenetic pace. This was Klopp employing his most energetic gegenpressing tactics. We were all over the pitch. The ball was pinging everywhere first to absolutely every second and third ball. We should have and were expecting to have killed this game off in the first half so we could sit back in the second half but we weren't clinical enough and had to dig deep into reserves to try and keep up the pace for the last 30minutes.

I think we'll see the same next week and I expect us to be much more clinical and really put in a memorable win over that lot. The boys will be fired up after they nicked 2 of our points earlier in the season.

This is the period where a need for finishing becomes crucial, but as always one of our front three is always on form. I feel we will see the impact of Minamino- who can either fashion more clear cut chances or finish clinically- in such games, but only at a later stage this season. Mid Feb to March we'll see form pick up as usual. As we've seen previously under Klopp, Rodgers, Rafa, Ged, Kenny(1st spell) etc..

This is the period where a need for finishing becomes crucial, but as always one of our front three is always on form. I feel we will see the impact of Minamino- who can either fashion more clear cut chances or finish clinically- in such games, but only at a later stage this season. Mid Feb to March we'll see form pick up as usual. As we've seen previously under Klopp, Rodgers, Rafa, Ged, Kenny(1st spell) etc..

Yes. We've taken that end of season form helped by seeing every game as a cup final helped that you can see the finishing line and up the pace to finish strongly and applied it to the whole first half of the season. Every 3 points are fought tooth and nail for. We're determined not to have any regrets come May.

Out of all our former players turned pundit, Murphy is the nastiest most clueless prick of them all.

He is a bit of a tool, as Roy Keane would say.

Jose was clueless because this Liverpool isn't like the teams he faced in the past that he got joy against, we're an efficient machine and shitshousery won't work against us because we've also got shitshouse players ourselves.

Of all the attributes this team has in spades I think one of the most admirable is it's patience. Slow, steady, calm when we need to be. Lethal when it counts.

Fabinho's back next week, lads.
Fab will find it difficult to win back his place in the starting lineup!  6 clean PL sheets since he's out!   LOL

I can't bear Danny Murphy. Always had digs when Rafa replaced him with alonso, to the point where he came across as a right xenophobic prick.

Yeah I was saying this to my mate yesterday, I honestly think attackers are seeing our back four and losing their heads.

As somebody said in another thread, I think the Spurs players had their brains scrambled due to our insane pressing throughout the game. Imagine getting on the ball and either of Firmino or Mane pulling your pants down from behind with Gini and Lallana thrown in for good measure. Of course you would have half your mind on what's happening behind you, especially their midfielders who were harassed throughout. It was glorious to watch  ;D

Son missed that chance because he'd spent the previous 70 minutes or whatever concentrating like mad on holding his position so Trent couldn't get forward as much, and then running himself into the ground trying to burst past our midfield whenever he got the ball.  He was just mentally and physically shot because of Mourinho's demands.

Out of all our former players turned pundit, Murphy is the nastiest most clueless prick of them all.
Before the Spurs game he was on the radio talking about how to stop Liverpool.  He started off by saying he's surprised nobody else has copied Solskjaer's tactic (hint: because they created naff all apart from when we stupidly stopped expecting Atkinson to give us a free-kick and in the end they were very fortunate to hold on for even a point).

Then he went on to say... 4-4-2.  Push the wingers up to nullify our full-backs and use a central midfielder to man-mark Firmino.  So of that midfield four you would be left with one poor bugger chasing shadows while their own full-backs would be one-vs-one against Mane and Salah.  Klopp and Ljinders would have a field day!

I remember Houllier saying Murphy was really good tactically but that's not evident in his punditry.

A good result against a side & manager that would love to do one on us. Probably should have won it by 2 clear goals and to be still only 1 up when they missed a sitter was a wee annoying. Jurgen was not happy as he saw some moments where the boys were half asleep and had lost focus. Perhaps there is a wee expectancy in the team right now as no matter what we are winning every week even when we play poor and by all accounts I say we have only performed great in half a dozen of our league games. The rest we have had varied form from good to we just about scraped that win. This was one of those games where if you looked at the overall performance a share of the spoils might have been the fairer of the results. Klopp will definitely remind the lads they cant rest on their laurels as there is feck all in the trophy cabinet yet and they only have a great foundation to what possibly could be an unbelievable season....as long as they stay focused and even raise their game again. 3 points ....heres to beating the next crowd of shytes.
