I was happy how we reacted after conceding the 2 goals but I'm very even more worried now. How can we compete for anything with such a small and average(some players) squad. Allen was useless! Had no influence on the game and it was as if he did not want to get the ball. I think it's because we are no more keeping possession but it's not forgivable to play like this. Enrique was poor, and unlucily it's clear now that we need another LB.
WE need at least another winger and a striker, a good CM unless Suso lives up to expectations and a LB.

Positives:
Hendo was very good at the end, in the first half he was playing alongside Allen who did not help anywhere.
Can looks great as usual.
Lucas was good too and gave more balance to the team. (I'm still not convinced by Gerrard at DM)
Sterling is  going to be our star player next season, he was onside on the goal he scored, wasn't he?
Coutinho was his usual self although he should work on his shooting. He could have been the best scorer of this competition had he been a bit better in this area.
Mignolet was good during the pelnalties.

Prepare to see your beloved club win things and relax, I'm not being patronising, I can't stand anyone shooting us down especially after nearly winning the league last season.
Our team is immense, couple of signings then worry again next window.

Overall delighted with the eventual victory but...

Studge worries me, and not just because of last night. He thrives just as much on chances created for him as he does creating his own chances. He's not as busy as Luis, so he's not going to have as much ball. He goes missing for huge parts of the game, not every game, but he does do it. And like I said, he's a confidence player and the second something doesn't go right for him, it affects him. Thought he went missing last night and we cannot ever afford to have that happen. He needs a second world class striker alongside him, or someone who will dig in and take the flack for him.

Lambert didn't get going and should have done much better with his point blank header, but to be fair to him, I don't think he's going to be a starter. Probably someone to come off the bench when needed.

Coates was good and bad, too erratic for me

Thought Kolo was great

Couts, livewire but still needs to 'up' his accuracy on goal

Allen was poor and either gave the ball away or got caught in possession

Henderson looks to have continued with the same vein of form he showed last season; great goal too

Johnson was just Johnson, which means ineffective. I'd be happy if we nabbed Richardson for me; what little I saw of him told me he's still a good RB

Enrique did ok and is making good with his come back

Chan good, as was Lucas, Robinson, and the rest

Sterling was brilliant, again, and for me, he's going to be our most important player this season. He is the one who can and will terrify defences with his pace and trickery

Impression I came away with though, is that we still need to improve in defence and attack, especially in defence. So no surprises there

Marquee signing is a bad term just to be consistent, we should never just buy someone because of hype.

It would be silly to sell Lucas and keep Allen, Allen does not contribute to anything. Lucas defends very very well, no one can deny it.

Summer Transfer Board / Re: Marco Reus (Dortmund)
« Last post by fishpie on Today at 08:08:43 AM »
We are not linked to Reus officially, why is this thread here... no.
If we are after a player like Reus, we'll only hear about it at the last moment because the offer will be strong.
That's my belief anyway.

Have the game on record. Will watch the 2nd half later. Great result though. Sounds like Raheem was the boss. Love it! Would love us to get to the final of this thang and smash the Mancs.
