      Obviously we've all had a good gloat today but the Boss won't be getting carried away.I'll carry on saying we should be looking to buy more strength, more goal threat.

      This is going to be harder than last season and I just think we need one or two than can add strength and goal threat.

      So, to sum the weekend up, we win with a controversial pen in the last min of time added on.

      City get stuffed at home!

      Spurs get stuffed again!

      Utd fail to score AGAIN and lose AGAIN.

      Everton go back into their rightful place (the relegation zone).

      We finish 8 points clear going into the international break.

      If Carlsberg did football weekend's....

      The best part? They've yet to come at Anfield >:D
      Been thinking about this game all day, few tough fixtures before that but I think if we can sustain this lead until then Pep will have to come out looking for the win and he’s said in the past if you open up even by 1% against Liverpool you’re in trouble... now factor in their defensive issues and I’m probably totally jumping the gun but I’m just hoping we can go into that game with the 8 point lead still in tact!

      At this point anyone who played yesterday (other than Lallana) shouldn't even be a thought in the League Cup, FA Cup, or Club World Cup. Let's win this f**king thing

      Amazing that they are 8 points back and gave a better GD than us. That’s nuts.

      That's mostly due to their 8-0 win over Watford.

      What rubbish, we have a big enough squad to compete in all those competitions, I really really want us to win the Club World Cup, that is basically just 1.5 games as its only in the final we'll have any potential competition. Having said all that we should be resting players for the League cup game against the Arse, but then I'm sure they will be as well.

      Correct.

      The reality is, Klopp will go with a similar team as he did last round anyway, which was pretty decent.

      All acceptable beside the opening statement, only biased pundits like Shearer and those with an agenda would describe the pen as "controversial"!
      Manè was sandwiched between two defenders one of who clipped him from behind in the area, the slow down of the incident is irrefutable and the defender who clipped him knows beyond doubt he is the culprit.
      It's all bullshit and Roger's statement on MOTD crowns it all, he is adamant his crew deserved a draw and the pen was a wrong decision, this after we had more of the play, more possession, more shots on target, more attempts on goal, proof on film it was a penalty etc etc.

      Truth be told there is a fear that the mighty, unstoppable LFC winning army is marching again and the media along with our competitors are scared shitless at the prospect.
      To add to their dread last season's Prem winners were on the same points tally at this point in the season and proved uncatchable.

      I thought he pen was soft mate and had it gone against us plenty would be spitting feathers I think. But who really cares, we got this one. A couple of weeks ago we had a soft one against us at Napoli. With or without VAR nothing much has changed and it seems to be win some lose some.

      I disagree boss. Gomez, Shaq, Ox, and Kieta can lead the youngsters into battle for the cups. If we made the FA or League Cup final that's a different story. I would love to win the FiFA event too, but that's the busiest time of the year, and typically the time our form drops and we get burnt out. I say we try and win it with our younger team and save our A squad for the holiday run of games and the CL

      Makes no odds pal, the offence was committed and verified with VAR, it might or might not have been given outside the area but as you know any impediment to a striker in the pen area is scrutinised more and subject to tighter margins.
      If there had been nil contact ie Kane play acting which the cheat gets away with, fairy muff but there was and our man went down.
      Whether Mané merely felt a touch and thought 'penalty area, I felt that I'm down' is immaterial it was judged by the official and VAR to be a penalty decision.

      After saying that mate he did not require hospitalization or a stretcher but the majority of pens given do entail exaggeration to some extent.

      Albrighton’s reaction tells us everything we need to know. 100% pen.

      Totally agree with you.  We are on top of the world.  We are awesome team we have the best manager in the world.  Man U can get that world club cup and shove it up fergy's arse couldn't give a sh*t about it.  It's a glorified charity shield that's all it is.  Not saying that I don't want to win it.  But a lot of this comes from Man utd banter.   We've waited too long for the league we just can't jeapordise our strong position.   The timing of the world club cup is sh*t.  Still a while to go.  If we have a fit squad then OK if not play the fringe players.

      A soft penalty...that's like being a little pregnant right?

      Either way, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good...when you are both like we have been, all the better.

      You only get a chance to compete in the Club World Cup if you win the Champions League, I don't care what anyone says it is prestigious and its basically one full game plus one half and half with squad players. The game we would have been playing domestically has been moved so what exactly is the issue, the lads will be flying there and back in a private jet so not exactly arduous is it?

      make no mistake, its a trophy LFC want, never won it.

      The squad will be used heavily during November and December, but this week showed when players come in they generally perform, Origi made an impact at weekend, as did Lovren.

      And we have been playing this season with a goalie we got for a free, who had no club. brilliant stuff.

      Best goalie in world will be back soon, just watch the clean sheets add up again.   :666:

      If we can keep everyone fit we will win it. Last season will be invaluable for us; it sure hurt but the players are mentally stronger for it.

      We haven't got a big enough squad, we could rotate the midfield and probably centre halves but in terms of full backs & attackers we're pretty thin. Personally I'd start with Elliot, Divock & Brewster up top & rest Trent and Robbo too - we haven't won the league in 30 years so we shouldn't be leaving anything to chance. Not to be cynical but I honestly couldn't give a toss about some gravy train trophy played in front of slave owners in a backwards country halfway across the world!

      Best think about Kiev was the loss..
      It’s f**king galvanised us & made us more determined to win the following season & we did in Madrid.

      Loosing the title by 1 point last season will also have that similar impact on us..

      We ain’t giving up top spot for a while..
