      I love Shaq & deffo think he should start more; his first touch is world class and his passing is quick & very accurate.  He can provide the creativity from the middle of the park we've been missing.

      Fab made an excellent start; good tackling, nice pass on him, plenty to be optimistic about.

      An easy win once the first goal went in, but they were very poor.  They were actually 40 or 50/1 to win the game with some bookies!

      Like to see a similar side start the next couple of games, see how that midfield shapes up against stiffer tests.

      One thing's for sure though, once Keita gets up to speed, Fab settles in and Ox comes back, competition for the midfield spots will be fierce, and that can only bode well for future performances.

      Hopefully we're out of a mini-slump relatively unscathed and an exciting couple of months to Christmas to look forward to.  Plus I'm going up for the Newcastle game on Boxing Day (Mrs not happy but hey-ho!) so an early Merry Christmas for me!!

      COYR!!!!

      the win was great but more importantly for me was the way we once again "clicked" we looked so good from 20 mins on it was such a relief to see and the front three scoring may just shut the experts up for a while.
      Also the Boss, what a man and the contrast between him and the other muppet down the East Lancs Road is just incredible.
      Lets ask Keith from his sick bed who would he like to visit him in Hospital Jürgen or Jose.

      I went for Bobby as MOM

      For me he was superb throughout dropping deep to play a sort of 9 and half role , some of his little touches were brilliant and took his goal superbly

      Can see the old sharpness coming back

      Solid performance, and very happy with Fabinho's performance. It's a poor opposition but he looked like he's been playing with the team for a long time. Really like his composure. He and Shaq were excellent and should give a kick up the back side to the others. In fact, I'm increasingly thinking it looks like a much more balanced side with a purely defensive midfielder in Fab, someone who can do both, box-to-box with Keita and a creative AM with Shaq.

      Very nice headache to have.

      Crack on lads, solid win.

      Nearly went for Firmino, but decided Shaqiri in the end, he did his job almost perfectly and looks to be adding better defensive skills to his game.

      check the score and stop looking for negatives if you cant enjoy that tonight really whats the point
      How is looking at how players played overall looking for negatives...? And if you still think that it is then you need to go back and look at "Any" post you made after We(LFC) won a game and you were unhappy with a player, or were you think that a particular play should have either been playing or not.

      And btw, I very much enjoyed to night (Last nights game). I think Lallana came on with Klopp's view to start Shaqiri against Cardiff on Saturday, in which case I understand that, but it does not mean that cannot point out the difference in class between the two, or the difference in approach in play

      Interesting that our two new lads were the star performers last night.

      They look so hungry and eager to prove they deserve a place in the first 11.

      Great to see.

      So true and Shaqiri was even tracking back  ;D

      I have to ask, were Red Star poor because of us or are they just a poor team in general? I mean, they beat Salzburg to qualify for CL and drew vs Napoli....

      And I had to throw this out here, I was very impressed with how we handled their high pressing, they had 5-6 players at times for the first 15-25 mins, yet didn't really trouble us.

      I don't know. I don't think that they are a bad team, I think that we just defended real well and that Midfield players Gini, Shaqiri and Fab'  just did a lot to win the ball back high up the field.

      Yeah, I agree, would throw Firmino into the equation too as he was part of our midfield a lot, but yeah, having more technical players in the midfield was probably the reason we weathered the storm and was able to play through it and take control of the match.

      That first 20 minutes storm was doing my head in. Ball pinging about, giving it straight back to them, giving silly fouls away.
      I thought the ref was gonna book Fabinho when he slid in and caught yer man early on, thankfully he didn't and Fab went on to really get a grip in midfield alongside Gini and those two unlocked the key moving it quickly forward to Bobby and Shaq's feet.
      He's gonna be some player in a red shirt that Fabinho, he's brilliant ! He can play a sweet pass alright.

      They're a decent side but they fell hard just like all the others have.

      Anfield welcomes them all but Anfield has and will, crush them all into tiny pieces.
      Really pleased for Mo Salah who answered his critics in style. he'll bang a couple more in at the weekend too no doubt.

      Great to see Jürgen's laughter from the bench when Sturridge tried another Stamford Bridge from 35 yards and put it in row Z.
      Good job we were 4-0 up at the time Danny ;D

      God help Cardiff City !

      Get the f**k in. Made up with our performance last night, seems to be clicking into place now.

      Beastly performances from a lot of the lads out their last night but my standout for MOTM was Fabinho.

      Well done lads and to top it off got the correct score prediction.

      He wasn’t just playing in midfield he was the deepest midfielder we had a few times 😂

      I liked it though, he came deep, played a pass and got forward and nobody knew how to pick him up

      Quote from Brian78
      Am I right in thinking that they cant sell tickets to their fans for the game in 2 weeks?

      No you're not. Usual arrangements apply.

      Funny how VVD slots in seamlessly as captain, and everything goes without a hitch. Why not he takes the armband permanently?

      We needed a result like that. We should have scored more, but the away game will be more difficult, where Napoli have already slipped up. So despite winning this game as we have, we can't rest on our laurels over there.

      In the meantime, another good win on Saturday and hopefully we can build some momentum from there.

      Bookies had them at between 40 & 50/1 to beat us, so they didn't rate their chances. Think they're okay at home but poor away (as their 2 CL away games so far indicate).

      I only have 2 things to say in this game. Our midfield played with purpose, Shaq moved the ball so fast forward to the front line, no time for the oppo defence to settle down, unlike Hendo who takes ages. Next, Fab was also fantastic, won tackles and moved the ball forward fast, again no time to-react against our front line. What i saw in this game is when we moved the ball fast enough forward to the front line, the oppo defence is in deep sh*t, they wouldn;t know which direction the danger will come from.

      Shaq played on the right whats that got to do with Henderson.
      Before we all get carried away this was not Real Madrid Barca or Juve they gave us all the time in the world to play our game.
      It was the perfect game for us after being a bit out of sorts for most of the games so far.
      Really looking forward to seeing just how well our new players  can take us to the next level Jürgen has as always done a brilliant job of shielding them and easing them into the side.
      Lets just say post Christmas I think we may well be unbeatable

      He's in the middle, no need to point to the exact position to win an debate. What did you see in Hendo that many of us don't? He slowed the game down, he made all the silly side and back passes. No motivation to drive the ball and team forward. Shaq is the total opposite. To be honest, Hendo is 30, I hope that he doesn't hang around too much longer. He holds the whole team back. Hendo is very useful when you are 4-0 or 5-0 up and needs to see the game out. Not when we're struggling to break sides down or going a goal or two behind and I haven't even mentioned providing the leadership. Do you think Dinamo is really that bad???  Well, if they are is because we made them played so poorly, Please give the lads credit when they played well and support your team 100% and not saying the opposition is poor.  Did you not see how many useful forward passes that Shaq and Fab made in this game against the loads of games that featured Hendo. Look, I have no meat with hendo, when we have the great midfielders of yesteryears and we compared with Hendo, he may not even made the bench during those years, honestly saying so.

      I'm amazed the way we think sometimes  :

      When we performed badly and lost :  We're truly the shittest
      When we performed badly and won :  We're poor
      When we performed well and won  : We're still poor
