      I will take the 1-0s and 2-0s winning score all the way to the 38th game. I can see what Klopp is trying to do here, he probably doesn't wanna go gungho winning 5-0s and 6-0s and gets more players injured and concedes a few along the way that comes to defeat. I believe, he's offering better protection to the back 4 at the moment. Keeping pace with City is the most important thing at the moment. They will falter at some point, it's a matter of time and we have to be ready to pounce. If we expect to see a winning margin of 3-0, 4-0 or 5-0, it probably will not happen too often this season. I'm not complaining at all, if that is what it takes to get us challenging for the title till the last game, then so be it. Chelsea drew against Everton, probably fatigue has started to take effect on some top clubs. X'ms will be an interesting period.

      Overall, very happy with the results today. We lost to the bottom quarter teams last season while others were spanking them left and right, I believe Klopp is trying to correct that and he's doing fine at the moment.

      It's 3 points but yet again the team not firing on all cylinders and defensively we are looking a bit more shaky these last few games. I can see plenty of positives though and I certainly prefer having a more attacking midfield.

      Hate to say it but come on Utd, rub that magic lamp again.

      10 points ahead of UTD just 2 points behind City who are bang on form whilst we are still in third gear so much to look forward to now just get the midfield settled and we have a lot of points to gather between now and the new year HAPPY DAYS

      3points.
      That’s all that matters.
      It felt as if we could have lost at times in the first half, some odd lapses, and then we get a break and score. Cheers, ref and lino! Theirs certainly looked offside to me!
      Signs of more composure 2nd half but it would be nice to put more of those chances away. Some will bemoan the finishing, the free kicks, or the decision making up front. Yep it will need to improve but today once we got ahead it felt easy. Didn’t it..?
      City won again. It’s not the title but I saw their derby as a likely 2points dropped at least. There’ll be few other opportunities for them to lose points I fear. I was praying for a draw.
      Nervous.
      If it’s this tight in April, can you imagine?
      Breathe.
      All is well, for the moment.
      Rest and be thankful!

      Good call to rule the Fulham goal off-side. I'm disappointed that Klopp said it was not 100% off-side. If anybody wanted proof Klopp can talk ridiculous it's this, it's not about language barrier.. percentages are the same in Germany. It's nothing to do with percentage, it's binary... On or Off! Klopp awkwardly said it was on-side and we got lucky, I'm not debating the lucky part.. but we were lucky the linesman made the right call. For Klopp to say we were lucky the linesman made the wrong call is disappointing. 100% disappointing!

      Personally I'm not fussed but I do get it, it's the goal difference and when you're up against such an abject side as this Fulham is, people see it as a chance to increase that. Personally I don't think the subs we could have made would have made that much of an impact but I do understand the reaction to not doing it.

      There's a naivety about this now given Man City's far superior goal difference. We should just look to play for the points and the confidence of a clean sheet.

      Spot on.

      I think that reasoning also wholly misunderstanding the way coaches think.

      Klopp will be aware of the goal difference but he’s interested in performance first and foremost.

      If we perform as we can we will win and score plenty.

      He isn’t thinking “f**k it, pile on the strikers let’s squeeze an extra goal out this game”. He’s probably pleased with some aspects, slightly frustrated with some and looking to protect players and win games.

      It’s not FIFA 19, it’s real football.

      You'd think those last 20 minutes or so against Crystal Palace back in 2014 would make people wake up to the futility and severe blowback that can result from 'chasing the goal difference'.

      As you say, far too many people viewing football through the gaze of video games and not real life. That's why we have grown men behaving like 10 year old boys when it comes to the question of who's better - Ronaldo or Messi? Any grown adult wouldn't and shouldn't give a f**k (I couldn't care less if either of retired tomorrow) but you should see some of those cu*ts on twitter.

      I'm talking about Klopp below.

      “In the end we were a bit lucky and maybe because of Robbo it is not 100 per cent offside because of his heel. We cannot change it, Fulham cannot change it.

      I can say now, it was 100% offside and there's nothing to change. Perhaps you were unaware Klopp basically said the Fulham goal should have stood. I don't expect that sh*t from our own manager. I can categorically say Robertson didn't play anybody onside.

      Good day for us today even though City won. I'm happy to see some daylight between us and the Chavs, Arse and Spuds ( to say nothing of Mourinho's lot). Just stay close to City, don't let them get a cushion and they will start to feel pressure the longer we are on their shoulder.

      Even if its 50-50 the manager shouldn't say anything as now all refs think we got lucky so the next decision may well go against us.
      Klopp should reflect a bit more on how we invited Fulham onto us as soon as Milner and Henderson came on, yet again we protected a lead rather than building on it, it's why Citeh have a +13 goal difference to us.

      So were we playing gung ho for 70 mins then? This was Fulham and we gave them far to much respect, we should have won by 4 or 5 goals. Happy with the 3 points though.

      International break...could be a good thing. Seems to be a bit of mental fatigue about the team. Whatever it is, we seem to lack the urgency we had last season. We've not played badly, maybe we are much more controlled, more pragmatic. We're grinding out results or like today just about doing enough.

      It's frustrating some fans. Break might help but we need to come back and hit the ground running, get a second wind, re-focus - whatever it takes to get the spark back. Playing within ourselves and winning might pay off in the long run but it's going to a herculean task to overtake City.

      Klopp is too nice at times, that's one of the reasons people like him and are quick to defend him. He's a good manager, but he does need to be more assertive at times. I'd certainly hope Klopp claims every 50/50 going forward. I just hope if we get the same referee again he doesn't remember Klopps comment... because we may not get the next 50/50 if Klopp is going to say correct decisions that benefited us were incorrect. I've not seen any manager do that before, I've seen managers talk utter trash when moaning what went against them but that can be expected and understood. I can't stand Ferguson but I think he won titles on the mentality of claiming everything he could and complaining about everything that went against United, pre match and post match. I'm in no way saying be like that, but there's a thing as acting like a walkover.
