      I don't know how, but this is Henderson's fault. :roll:

      For sure!

      Liverpool win by 7 - "because Hendo didn't start!"
      Liverpool win by 5 - "sshhh let's pretend Hendo wasn't in the team"
      Liverpool draw - "because Hendo was in the team!"
      Liverpool draw again - "something something Hendo"

      End of the day.

      We were hammering Everton and got shafted by the referee.
      We were outplaying WBA and got shafted by the referee. Wasn't a deliberate handball so can't be a foul.

      Utter w*nk officiating as always and will the FA do anything about it? Will they f**k.

      As for our team... Karius was good, Klavan was good, Gini was w*nk, Can was dire and the rest were fine or slightly less. Very frustrating.

      If we were outplaying West Brom how come our keeper had more saves to make than theirs and how come they had more corners?
      We were sh*t, we simply have not got a fuckggn clue how to play against these teams, after how many years now, its pathetic.

      Agreed.

      Spot on Mags, thought Karius had an excellent game, as did Klavan as you say. Gini and Can, I'm just so deflated watching them play the game.

      Robbo could have done an awful lot more with the possession he had and I thought Mane had an off night for him.

      As soon as the team news says we have made 6 changes my heart sinks.

      2 great points at home, we may make Europa League if we can get Salah to score 50 goals this season, before he leaves

      When the goalkeeper is MOTM at home then you know it's been a bad one. Another team would have beaten us tonight - comfortably.

      Played decent for about sum total of 10 minutes in this match. The rest was average/poor/dire.

      The simple fact is that under these owners the goal is consistent semi success, some Top Four finishes and continued financial growth.

      The business plan of these owners has Liverpool becoming an elite club as an additional bonus. A nice aside.

      Liverpool are not able to be an elite club with these owners, with this level of slow-bicycle peddling.

      You can moan about Klopp all you like but the major issue is this the owners of the club and senior management are not genuinely interested in making Liverpool thee dominant force in England.

      Well, that was a wet rag of a performance.
      Too many draws, only 2 pts from Everton and WB :(
      Thought we looked better after the changes, Mane was dire, Can/Gini either one could've made way, though still waiting on AOC to make his impact.
      TAA looked like his head had gone too before he went off.
      Bob anonymous, and Klavan does like to clear it into the crowd instead of trying to control and clear.

      REALLY wanted us to go a nick a goal on a night when it looked like we wouldn't.

      We just can't string a run of wins together.

      Ah well, it's nearly Christmas  :food-smiley-005:

      I thought Phil turned in one of the most self indulgent performances I’ve seen in a very long time.

      Hollywood ball after Hollywood ball or caught in possession.

      He was far from the only one but that was frustrating.

      Our midfielders are a joke. Look how the game changed when Coutinho was moved infield and deeper, imagine if we had a f**king DLPM there at the start, imagine if we had an attacking midfielder or 2 like a Lampard, Gerrard, Alli etc and actually supporting our attacking players. Our midfield is a f**king joke, the odd exceptional game and back to shitness... inconsistency at it's finest.

      Poor performance, but screwed by the Ref/linesman/?. Ref gave the goal then changed his mind!

      f**k sake we should be scoring 3 or 4 against these teams, it shouldn't come down to hand ball or not goal.

      Agree - midfield never had any control till last 20 mins and then it was largely because West Brom sat right in.

      And the problem is that there are at least 8 teams in the prem that play like this, so that is 16 games where you have to have a plan...

      Don't understand the reasoning behind bringing on Joe Gomez when there's so little defending to do and a goal desperately needs scoring.

      Also, Solanke has been pretty poor those last two games.

      That was just so so so sh*t to watch. A horrible game with where we never really looked like scoring.

      Can’t see how we’ll make top 4 with sh*t performances like that. It’s embarrassing.

      Going back down that table now after 2 winnable home games.

      Very f**king disappointing

      Could have been worse - you could have paid £150 for a hospitality ticket in the Main Stand tonight.

      Shout out to Karius for another clean sheet - which he did actually earn.

      That's all I've got.

      To be fair to him our players did get a little bit "give it to Coutinho" near the end. Hate to see that personally.

      That's the delusion. Actually they outplayed us by giving us the ball, sitting back and watching us screwing it. Too often that works.

      It can be hard sometimes for the front four to function when the ball coming from behind is slow and sh*te.

      I for one hope Can does not sign a contract. Average player on the wage bill.

      West Brom had 7 corners to our 4, they had 2 shots on target to our 5 but both had Karius scrambling, I can't recall Foster being particularly troubled by any of our efforts, no great saves from him needed.

      Baffled as to why Coutinho is getting criticism tonight, I thought he was the best of a bad bunch in terms of our attackers. Tried his hardest to make things happen and got himself on the ball repeatedly. I was more disappointed with Firmino, Mane and to a lesser extent Salah.

      Tactically I think we needed to switch to 4-4-2 mid-game, get the ball wide, look to set up some 2 on 1s against their fullbacks and make things happen with crosses and cut-backs. That's something Klopp does not seem to favour but I would have been happy to see Ox come on to play on the right and play Salah through the middle or even on the left. TAA and Robertson (who was very disappointing with the ball tonight, he played more safe passes than we see from Moreno and that's saying something) are both terrific crossers of a ball. That's how we should have game-planned for that last half hour of the match. 

      As for the disallowed goal. I'd have been pissed if it was given against us, intentional or not, it should stand if the last touch is from the arm or hand as that one was. But gutted for Solanke who was denied scoring a Kop end winner.
