      ^ Re the offside situation I think whatever Klopp say about it he just say for the saying as even him also very far away to see or not at right angle to judge it.  Only one who see the situation best is a lineman and he judge it right.

      Thing I concern a bit from the game is Bobby Firmino. He seemed not right playing CAM. Hopefully Klopp can bring the best out of him if he want to continue playing Mo CF.

      He publicly and incorrectly accused Robertson of playing him onside. I'm sure Klopp regrets saying that and I hope he's learnt from it. I didn't realize Klopp said that till a few newspapers picked up on it. Guardian and talksport being the ones I remember. These are just comments Klopp didn't need to make. I didn't see the match live, but from the highlights it looks like Fulham had got chances. International break has come at a good time for us because we need to control games a bit more. We doing well points wise which is the best thing we can take going into the international break.

      These complaints about Klopp saying Robbo played Mitrovic on are a nonsense. And Refs won't take any notice of his remarks. Klopp would laugh at such suggestions. Or more likely he's be irritated at the ridiculousness of such comments.

      Similar with moans that we should've scored more. Fulham sat deep most of the game. We won the game after a difficult CL game. Shaq came in and did well. Klopp will be delighted that Shaq has come in and is doing really well early on in his career at Anfield. Might've thought shaq would come in for the cup games etc but now he is a genuine contender for a more offensive midfield. I said 6 weeks ago Shaq could be the catalyst for a fresh attacking spree. Many said the same.

      Robinho as well, bedding in. Getting the pace and mentality of the Prem. Plenty of positives, most of the complaints - irrelevant.

      Hey if you are happy being 13 goals behind Citeh and 1 behind Chavs then good for you, but personally I'm not. This is the game we should have gone for the jugular but again we huffed and puffed a bit, although we were a lot better than in recent games but that was largely down to playing an AM.

      I actually think Bobby was an unsung hero in that game. It showed what we missed against Red Star. His movement is superb and he creates so much space for other players by drawing defenders to him.

      As my old school reports used to say "has the ability, can do better". Pretty lacklustre performance again, if the linesman gets their offside wrong (which would have been easy to) we are 1 down and struggling. Something is amiss but I am no expert so can't put my finger on it. It's obvious we are not as aggressive as usual (sad to say when I watch City play they are a notch above us and 2 notches above everyone else no doubt about it). We seem to have gone from hard rock to grunge (all seems a bit disjointed). We need someone to pick that final pass out but nobody stepping up yet (could Keita now stand up and be counted?). Gotta get back in the groove and quick, get the swagger and the confidence back, I'm not even fist pumping goals at the moment FFS!  :boxing: :boxing:

      You’re reading too much into it Ribs.

      He was being magnanimous after caning the officials for Bobby’s goal last week.

      We won so he could afford to play nice.

      That’s all, nowt more to see.

      Bobby's touch was absolutely awful it came of his knees of his thighs it was just bouncing off him he is out of sorts all this moving around making space nonsense he is there to make goals and score goals and he isn't at the moment.
      I was wondering was this his first World Cup because he had an incredibly long and hard season maybe he just needs a bit of a break.

      I know he said it but it's not that important. Newspapers...hogwash. I see enough wrong with this side to know when criticism is justified. Yeah we didn't put them to the sword second half but the attack has lost it's way a bit so a solid win is acceptable.

      Could argue that we are in a false position re our current form, but grinding out wins in the past hasn't always been our strong point. City are the dominant force in the Prem and if we can stay in touching distance not playing that well then I'll hold my fire and put any negativity to one side.

      Not sure if it’s already been mentioned but our set pieces were absolutely shocking yesterday.

      Free kicks in great positions hitting the wall and corners either flying out the other side or failing to get off the ground.
      No single culprit just everyone who took an attempt!



      Since Gerrard retired we have missed a specialist. I would let Shaqiri take them for now.

      Your lucky...in the 80's...if we got a free kick it was a pound to a penny they would screw it up. We would batter teams but set pieces...always seemed to go tits up.

      Just seen MOTD and a suspicion of Shearer's optical senses not being what they should crept in.
      He claimed the offside goal disallowed for Fulham was "questionable", also the kick out by Alisson subsequent to the Salah goal should not have stood because the ball was still rolling when the goalie kicked it??
      Slowed down the footage shows the ball coming to rest before contact by Alisson.

      Don't usually have the volume on MOTD and the Sheared bollox ensures that will definitely be the setting in future.

      Should it have been retaken though as a Liverpool player (Firmino me thinks) was clearly not ten yards from the ball when the free kick was taken  :f_whistle: >:D

      Quote from waltonl4
      If the ball was moving it was only just moving and if they stop every freekick because the ball was moving even slightly the game will grind to a halt.
      Also we could not have scored that goal because VAR would have been reviewed and VAR takes so much time review.
      Good solid win keeps us up there and there is so much potential in this team its frightening

      Let it take as long as it needs. We're watching the game for 2 hours as it is, what's another couple of minutes?

      I believed that there was a recent rule change where you could take a free kick with a moving ball, so if that's the case, there's no issue with our goal. I know it was certainly discussed anyway.

      I thought the general performance was as flat as a pancake tbh. I was saying before we scored, that we will need to step it up after the break. Then we scored and we didn't have to. So we didn't.

      The mancs lost, Arsenal are three games without a win, Chelsea have taken 6 points from their last 4 home games. So it was a good weekend. 10 years ago we played Fulham at home, and had one of the many bore draws at home that season that cost us come May. Now we have 30 points, winning the games we should win, and the table is taking shape, with 24 more points up for grabs before we go to face City. The target has to be minimum 50 points on the board by then.
