      Well city be top by weekend so we must get 3 points home to Bournemouth. If we don't were winning no league. We been rubbish from start of 2019. Time to get the finger out practice hard bit of  long distance shooting training wouldn't go a miss. Anyway sat to be a horrible day weather wise strong winds. Hopefully play with a bit more freedom like its the first gameof the season and we're starting all over again. No point tensing up in Feb. Good luck reds. Hope gini and hendo and trent are back.

      I don't see no sh*t in this result. This draw is really not a problem. Every team has completed 25 games and we're leading with 3 points ahead. What's the problem?

      The only problem is us. Our anxiety to put points into the bag and wrap this up. 3 f**king points. It's not even level neck and neck on points.

      Apparently some of us have enxiety problem and need reminding that we're still ahead.

      What a great, level headed post. Especially the middle paragraph.

      Would plus 10 that if I could 👍

      I apologise. I'm not well and snapped at you. Sorry for that.

      The entire point I made in my post was not that selling Clyne was a problem in and of itself, but that selling Clyne has lead to a problem at Right Back which is being solved by moving Midfielders there, but in doing so is creating more problems. It doesn't matter if he hadn't played for ten years, if we had him we wouldn't be moving a midfielder there and our midfield wouldn't be suffering as a result. If we had not sold him we could have played Milner in midfield the last two games and used Keita as an impact sub.

      Basically we had some Asdas own butter in the fridge and threw it out and now we're using olive spread waiting for the Lurpak to atrive.

      It's just not the same.

      It’s surprising that Pellegrini seems to love City so much seeing as they treated him like dirt.

      We have it in our hands just about but way we're playing I can't see that lasting very long. Can only see city winning. I'm hoping for a miracle. We just have been awful lately and beset with injuries. What are we actually doing in training each day

      Not working on set pieces clearly. We haven't played well since Christmas. Got away with it in 2 games, didn't in the rest and the training camp in the back of the beyond was a waste of time. Form/results/injuries, no benefits whatsoever.

      In saying that, we're still top. What we need atm is what we had before Christmas, momentum. Rack up the games and wins every few days. Except we can't because we're out of the cups, so even if we win at the weekend, we then have another long break to endure in the back of beyond. Then we're straight into a rollercoaster 3 weeks, where goals will be scored and people will say things.

      I don't expect Everton to hold out for 5 minutes tomorrow, let alone 95. They have nothing to play for, and have no desire to do us any favours. But we move on.

      Quote from 7-King Kenny-7
      Yes at the start of the season if that was offered of course we all would, but you can’t get away from the fact that there was a 7 point gap offered to us and we didn’t take it.

      We had a 7 point lead in 2002, and within 2 weeks it was gone. Even if we had it now, the league wouldn't be won yet, as we would be worrying about complacency.

      If City were not playing tomorrow, we would be talking about going 6 points clear on Saturday. Instead the talk is about where we're going to be after tomorrow and the weekend.

      We will have a game in hand, so if we win all our remaining games, we win the league. We probably won't, but City probably won't either. The run in starts for real after the international break.

      Mate, we don't need a miracle, we are still 3 points ahead. Ok we are going through a bad patch but we all need to stay calm. Get our injured players back and go again.
      Reading some people on here you would think we were on a run of defeats and 10 points behind City, stay calm people we can still do this.
      It is OK say that "we all need to stay calm. Get our injured players back and go again." Lets say we get those players back full fit and raring to got in three games time, If we win the next game Bournemouth, we then face Man Utd draw, (possible lost) and Watford,trick one that. I can't see City losing there next three especially with pep getting the bit between his and City's teeth...Bournemouth will have three Liverpool ex's desperate to prove themselves (Ibe,Solanke and Clyne) and lets face it we are playing very poorly, and have vital injuries. We are tittering on the edge and are one one more injury away from a fu**ed season. Lose any of the front three, VD or Allison we're f**k royaly

If we had not sold him we could have played Milner in midfield the last two games and used Keita as an impact sub. If you read my post, you'd know I also went on to say that the same problem could be overcome by playing Camacho who if good enough to be on the bench, is good enough to fill in for two or three games.

      The four points dropped in the last two games have come from a dysfunctional midfield. All season our midfield has facilitated the front three/four in getting goals, and protected the back four from conceding them. All of a sudden the midfield balance has been disrupted and the two other areas of the team are suffering as a result. No matter how you look at it, selling him without replacing him was a mistake, a mistake we're now paying for.

      No problem, hope it’s nothing serious.

      I did read your post though, that’s why I said I agree with you about Camacho.

      I think we’ll just have to agree to disagree regarding Clyne.

      Ibe rarely plays as it is, Solanke is half fit and Clyne is ineligible for the game, so they have no RB for the game either.
      Ultimately, if we don’t manage to beat Bournemouth then we deserve to be knocked off top spot. You can’t go 3 games without a win and expect to remain top.
      Let’s hope we put them away like the 4-0 last time out, a great performance is much needed.

      They've both got previous between them Stu , when Jürgen was at  Borussia and tw*t was at Malaga.   
      T**t believes that Jürgen got a couple of offside goals awarded.
      Think that was about six years ago in the CL ?  Resentful little man.

      Pellegrini is also pissed off cos there was talk about him managing us after Benitez ...back then ...God Forbid.

      Still in the box seat, although we did look a bit nervy last night.

      I just hope we didn't overachieve in the first half of the season, and this is the start of a regression of the mean.

      That said I'm confident we'll get out of this "blip" come the weekend at home to Bournemouth.

      It's simple really.

      No team is going to go through a season and not drop points

      It's not football manager or whatever the f**k it's called.

      Sh*t happens.
      We go again.

      shouldn't you be writing a page of bullshit to make the point not just a few sentences.
      When the team needs us we are supposed to get behind them and make them feel they are supported instead we get smart arses dissecting every single mistake.
      Yes we are not in our best moment however despite this we are top of the league 3 points ahead of the best ever Prem Team

      I guess if this is our “blip”, it’s better to have back to back draws than it is to have back to back defeats like City had. 2 points from 6 is better than 0 from 6.

      The problem here is with the exception of the Arsenal game we have been poor most of the season, luck has been with us in most of the matches and we have pick up points were we should have lost them, which is great, but the feeling has been there that things could at anytime take a turn for the worse and it seem to have done so now... Injuries, the form and  performances seeming to have dipped, the real lack of game changers on the bench, the failure to bring players in...

      We need to address things fast

      The last third of the season games start to really get harder against Clubs trying to avoid relegation as well as teams pushing for places in Europe. No only do we need a plan b in games , but also a plan c... We also need to start playing some of the youngster give them the opportunity to impress, Lallana and Sturrigde simple no longer cut it

      I maybe should, but I find that when a point is a simple one and does not need disguising behind a wall of obfuscating text, succinct is best.

      I'll leave the reams of bullshit to the bullshit merchants.

      Purposely didn't come on the forum after the Leicester game because I couldn't be bothered giving my take on the game and then being quoted by the usual people who always wear their tinted specs and are unable to see any criticisms or concerns.

      Back to back poor results and back to back poor performances have made me want to say a few things though.

      First things first, I was actually very happy with the starting 11 last night. I've been waiting patiently for months for Keita to start alongside Fabinho without the interference of Henderson, gini or Milner. I thought it was a great opportunity for naby to play in his normal position and to play his own game. I was also happy seeing lallana coming in as the 10, something we've been missing having that attacking midfielder in there.  If we had a fit squad to choose from my midfield three would be fab, Keita and ox so I was very excited to see fab Keita and lallana play.

      Anyway, the game gets under way and we're all over the place. West Ham had a couple of shots from range, two narrowly went wide and one Alisson made a good save on. They ran through us far too easily. Lallana was clearly blowing out his arse and I was very disappointed with Keitas failure to track back and/or put a foot in. Regaining possession is one of his strengths but I didn't see any of that last night.

      We took the lead by default really. Some good play by lallana who played Milner in, How the linesman played Milner on side I'll never know, but he squared it to mane who turned and slotted. Great goal but it was against the run of play really because we had been really sh*t up until then.

      Wasn't too long until West Ham equalised and if were being honest they deserved it. West Ham looked dangerous on set pieces throughout the half so it wasn't a surprise their goal came from one. What has happened to us? We've looked solid at the back all season and now we look a shambles.

      Naby will get the blame for not going with Antonio but looking at the replays, it's clearly robertsons man who doesn't go with him and is ball watching. Naby is also blocked off by his man too so he couldn't have gone with Antonio anyway.

      HT 1-1. Very fortunate to be level at the break and that was one of the worst 45 mins we've seen from us this season.

      Second half begins and I thought we were slightly better but that's not really much of a compliment because we couldn't have gotten any worse. Our play was very lethargic, build up was far too slow and we were too relaxed on the ball.  West Ham were well drilled and made it difficult but there was just no urgency from us at all.

      The game fizzles out without either team really doing enough to win it. Origi could have stole the points with the last kick of the game but other than that we didn't threaten their goal.

      Very poor performance from us and the performance is more concerning than the result for me. Few things to comment on.

      Milner has finally lost his legs. A great professional who has done a superb job over the years tracking wingers both for Man City and when he played left back for us. But he's come up against zaha and Anderson in recent weeks and I know both are quick, but they've dragged Milner all over the place and he was unable to keep up. He's been poor going forward too. I've got a soft spot for Milner and I always do for players like him who always give it their best and wear their heart on their sleeve but he is a problem for us at right back right now.

      The centre halves are a problem too. Van dijk has been poor the last two games but I'm putting that down to his partner, matip.  I prefer matip to Lovren but for somebody of his size, he's just so weak and he's terrible in the air too. We look so feeble on set pieces now and always look like we're going to concede.

      I was wrong about the midfield three. The midfield that started last night was poor. I thought it would have great balance but they were just all over the place. We badly missed gini, and to some extent Henderson because even though I don't rate Henderson as a player, at least he keeps to his position. There was too much space for West Ham last night that Fabinho couldn't handle all by himself, lallana blowing out his arse and Keita struggling to get involved in the first 45 were a big problem for us.

      I don't like criticising the front three because we all know how good they are and how often they win us matches. I thought mane played well and he was the only one who looked bothered at times to me. He ran his socks off last night and he took his goal superbly.  I thought Bobby had a terrible game though, I lost count how many times he lost possession. It was one of the worst games I've seen him play.  Salah was also poor but even when he has a poor game he still nearly scores one or two.

      We will drop down to second now because let's be honest, city will smash Everton tomorrow, so it's a new kind of pressure to experience. It will be tough for the lads to lead for so long to go back to second so we will soon see if this squad of players have what it takes mentally.

      If the wheels fall off now then you've got to ask why Clyne was allowed to leave and why no other players were brought in in January. But anyway, jurgen needs to make a couple of changes for the Bournemouth game and go back to basics. The pressure we've put ourselves under now is huge because all of our fixtures have now become must wins.

      Come on reds sort it out.

      Can't disagree with much there, mate.  Glad you see Hendo's value to the side.  Think Milly still has plenty in him but without a functioning midfield he was covering at least two positions at times, three if we were asking him to get crosses in.  In spite of this his positional sense was pretty sound.  He's never been a sprinter so he can't do the same job as Trent.  Must wins, I reckon, is 99% right.

      The problem here is with the exception of the Arsenal game we have been poor most of the season, luck has been with us in most of the matches and we have pick up points were we should have lost them, which is great, but the feeling has been there that things could at anytime take a turn for the worse and it seem to have done so now... Injuries, the form and  performances seeming to have dipped, the real lack of game changers on the bench, the failure to bring players in...

      We need to address things fast

      The last third of the season games start to really get harder against Clubs trying to avoid relegation as well as teams pushing for places in Europe. No only do we need a plan b in games , but also a plan c... We also need to start playing some of the youngster give them the opportunity to impress, Lallana and Sturrigde simple no longer cut it

      Warn weather training in Dubai softened them up. Klopp should have made them train here, in the cold to toughen then up instead

      You can have performance and you can have results and now and again you can have both but as long as the results keep coming our way performance will eventually follow. We are in the last 16 of the CL and Top of the league what more could Jürgen and the boys have done.

      Anyone notice how when they had a free kick to launch in, our backline was super high, everytime?
      and
      Each free kick they had, they had,two players on the ball, one rolling it to the other to cross, not really seen that against us this season.
      Trouble was, we gave them loads of silly free kicks, especially that first half.

      I want to see us shoot from distance more.Don't understand it half the time when M,S&F attempt these tiny one-two's between six defenders or more on the edge of the box instead of just putting their laces through it FFS !
      When was the last time we scored from outside the box? Trent? free kick at Watford? Shaq against ManUre?

      I know, we can play so much better than these last two league performances, we all know that.
      We'll pull through this blip on the radar don't worry.

      It is a bit weird that Fabinho is good enough to play RB for Brasil but not us, perhaps Klopp thinks he gets more out of him as a #6.

      Looks as if that is the case
