      Well f**king loved that performance, gave Arsenal a goal start and still f**king battered them.

      Ten points clear - definitely been a great xmas period for us.

      Shame Robbo was caught out of position on their goal. He’s been caught like that a few times in recent games but they went unpunished, think sooner or later we’d concede as a result. He wasn’t the only one not good enough in that moment of play, just one of the very few things he hasn’t been spot on with lately.

      But it’s meaningless at the end of the day, the team responded brilliantly and got a convincing win.

      Great stuff

      To be fair, he probably didn't expect Lovren to give the ball straight to an Arsenal player and then fail to get his tackle in when they came at him.

      Really impressed how Klopp tweaked the system to tighten things up in midfield. After that, we weren't so attack-minded, but Arsenal were basically shut out.

      I blame Lovren for their goal, he gave the ball away and failed to get his tackle in which led to the cross. That said, he's been very solid since called upon.

      I think if we avoid defeat at the Emptyhad, we'll win the league title.

      Have to admit I've been reading the posts over on the redcafe...they are not taking our surge to the title very well. Pretty grim stuff over there.  :lmao:

      maybe before the next game people will not react like mad things when they see the line up this man knows his players he knows his opposition.
      Today was a great day it looks like Spurs have run out of steam they were battered by Wolves we can sit back now and enjoy the day at least one of the three games will end up a surprise hopefully but unlikely Danny Ings can do us a favour.

      Seems like you’re almost willing it to happen Rib.
      I see people rip into you for some of your posts and I deliberately keep a distance from the slagging, but man, you do your best to antagonise people over issues, firstly I would expect from an Arse fan, and secondly, you don’t seem to have any issues with the elbow 🤷🏼‍♂️

      Are you sure you actually support our team, and the individuals that represent us 😳 It seems not.
      The elbow was arguably accidental, but some refs would have gave a yellow. If the ref saw what Mane did he could have been sent off. It's now came to light that the ref missed it, so the FA can charge Mane with any length ban they see fit. Maybe it's no action, maybe it's some action... I'm hoping it's no action of course but who knows. These are the facts. It's no longer opinions, it's facts. If you're too fickle to take that then stick your head in the sand, hide behind your rose tinted goggles, doesn't matter. Mane should calm down. We're on the verge of doing something special and every variable matters.

      He isn’t remotely out of position mate - that’s exactly where he’s meant to be in our setup.

      The problem was losing the ball cheaply and Gini sleeping momentarily as the ball was worked down their left.

      We do need quality cover though. Badly.

      No problem with Robbo’s positioning it was a sublime cross. The problem started and ended with Lovren. All in all ecstatic with the performance and the result at the end of the day.

      Yep Dejan sold him down the river with that one. Robbo high and wide as he is asked to be. Poor pass by Dejan and a quick piece of play by Arsenal and it's 1-0.

      How the whole team reacted to that though was very impressive.

      Poor pass from Lovren for the goal but sometimes you need to take your hat off to a really well worked goal

      Amazing response, Bobby who I’ve a bit puzzled by this season was brilliant and overall the front 3 are looking better and better. 5-1, top of the league by 9, +40 goal difference, 0 defeats 54 points before new year and I think the best is yet to come. Someone wake me up

      Disagree mate, Maitland-Niles was on that side and he came in completely unmarked. I’d at least expect him to track the run there, he usually does.

      But like I said, a few players could and should have done much better in that situation.

      Nothing to worry about though, just highlights our mental strength at the moment that we can go a goal down and still blow them away.

      Do you know for me what was so great about this win...?

      It was,

      3) bobby go a hat-trick... feel he will play with a lot more authority now

      2) I believe that the front three have finally realize that if they set goals up for one another it means, a) we win games, b) it is harder for teams to defend against them, and mark them out of games, because they never know who to mark c) everyone will get thier share of goals

      1) The way after going behind we showed the fight and belief to get back into the game and go on the win it. It is the sign of a team that will win the title  ;D

      We have a solid defense, a unstoppable strike force and now we have a midfield that (in Shaqiri, Fab' and Gini)not only set up but score goals regulary as well

      Don’t know why but when Naitland-Miles scores, his celebration annoyed the hell out of me, even watching it back on the highlights. So glad we went on to smash them, they got lucky for the scoring to stop at 5.

      Gini is superb but Bobby is the heartbeat of our team. I have zero doubts about that.

      Didn’t notice until the highlights and laughed me tits off.

      Imagine carrying on like that at 1-0 after 12 minutes or whatever it was.

      Possibly could have reacted quicker after the fact and his recovery run should have been narrower.

      That’s where we want him though - you’ll see that game in and game out - it is a feature component of our set-up.

      In my opinion Maitland-Niles was there specifically to try to make him stay at home. I thought he had a decent game against Robbo - looks powerful and quick the kid.

      We might be a tad more conservative versus City but I promise - if you watch specifically and you’ll see our opposite fb are really, really high and go beyond “their” man every time as we attack. If we lose possession as cheaply as yesterday they will look exposed.

      It used to worry the hell out of me (Albie struggled with his recovery lines and Milly with speed on turn) but it comes down to Risk vs reward for the boss....

      Been to many a great game but the company was in last night will take a lot of beating to the cider and kebab we shared last night i thank you for making it a hell of a night

      Went out to watch the match and woke with a f**king sore head this morning. What a performance!!

      So much pressure on after the Apurs result and then to go one down and we showed that we are in this 100%. Unbelievable character and performance.

      Still laughing at how many players Bobby left on their arses with his second :D

      How fortunate we are to have a man like Klopp orchestrating the symphony & the players like classical musicians pulling the strings with such sweet melody..

      I just don’t want this ride to end, is such a high..& it’ll be gut wrenching when this manager,team, style of play & even ownership ends..
