      Have you got the link/source to this as I haven't seen/read it?

      It’s a windup mate, nothing in any of the post match quotes to suggest he said it, I suspect a mishchievous scouser was behind it!

      I think someone mentioned earlier Keith that this was an un-credible quote.

      A bit of a tangent here, but I think the saves he makes are far harder than they might first appear.
      His positioning, timing, footwork and reading of the play in front of him are impeccable, so he's nearly always in position to make the saves appear easy.

      He reminds me a bit of Clemence in that sense.
      People thought Shilton was the better keeper, because he made a lot of acrobatic saves.
      Clemence didn't make as many because he didn't need to; his positioning meant he could make it look easy.

      And Clem wasn’t  licking Bobby Robsons arse hole either !

      Can someone explain Mo's goal and Ali's assist to me? It obviously stood but Mo seemed offside when he received the ball if I'm not wrong.

      How do the offside rules work here? Did Ali take a goal kick and hence offside doesn't apply? Any insights will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
      You can’t be off side in your own half, which mo was when Alison released the ball. Simples 😁

      Nothing wrong with the challenge, De Gea failed to gather the ball and threw himself down intimating there had been physical contact, the physical aspect dictated Virgil would have the advantage contacting the ball which the goalie could not get a fingertip to.Replayed the incident several times and came to the same conclusion, also the manc tactic of mobbing the ref apparently can affect a VAR  decision.

      Nothing wrong with challenge at all indeed. Rules state it's a foul if you jump into the keeper with arms leading. Virgil jumped using arms as natural leverage, and immediately puts his arms down before contact with De Gea. He was fully entitled to go for that ball as well. Was shocked it was ruled foul even after VAR.

      But how scummy were the Utd players with their reaction? They truly got away with "only" a 2-0 loss.

      I think the behaviour of players towards the ref in all games is disgraceful, I can't think of any other sport where players get away with telling a referee to f**k off and calling their decisions bullshit. Its actually one thing I've noticed with Hendo which I don't like, he's constantly swearing and arguing with the ref, it shows a lack of respect and is a terrible example for kids.

      Its beyond me why Refs don't implement a zero tolerance policy on this, similar to Rugby and most other sports.

      I wasn't shocked.
      It was entirely par for the course.
      Not allowed to even go near the 'keeper these days.

      Keepers; usually the biggest bloke on the pitch, allowed to use their hands, and raise their knee to go through players, they also get the most protection.
      It's f**king ridiculous.

      I'm not advocating a return to the "put the keeper in the net along with the ball" old school sh*t, I'm just saying that a bit of common sense should be applied, especially when you see the amount of wrestling that goes on at a set piece.

      Exactly,Nothing wrong with it all,in the simplest terms it was a 50/50 ball and Virgil won the ball the goal should have stood.

      Glad to see this, although I doubt it comes to anything since it's not us.

      I think it was Arlo White on American commentary (huge Man U fan) who said something like since the call was overturned it was OK what they did. Wonderful logic, that.  :roll:

      Arlo is an incredible commentator in my opinion. The LFC EFC March last season with Origi’s game winner was an epic one by him

      Clean sheets have started totting up now too, a great habit to have got ourselves in to at this point of the season.

      Wolves next and we have to respect them, but just a suggestion recently that the amount if games they are playing is starting to take its toll.

      We dont need to win this and I would like to at least keep the points ticking along. Of course we go there to win but I wouldn't be sending the keeper up if it were 0-0 after 90.

      A few things,

      I watched OGS interview and it doesn't sound like that quote from earlier is legitimate. He credited his team for some things but he doesn't say they dominated and he also gave Liverpool a lot of praise.

      That seems to be the default fine for surrounding the referee, Chelsea and Hull got similar fines.

      Before the game, the media were telling us this was going to be a difficult game, by reminding us what and why the score was in the last game. They forgot of course that This Is Anfield, and this was going to be a different sort of game.

      We didn't score early on, so apparently that meant that they started "well". Always amazes me why people think that if you haven't gone ahead early on that you haven't played well, games last 90 minutes after all. There's no reason to panic, the chances will come. Once the first goal went in, the chances piled up as their flimsy gameplan crumbled for everyone to see. Apparently their keeper was fouled by VVD, but I cannot see a foul no matter how often I see the replays. Some refs say it was, others say it wasn't. Pawson really should have gone to the monitor to look at the incident himself, so that he has seen everything he needs to see to make a decision either way. However, LFCTV insisted throughout the game that we had 2 goals ruled out by VAR, which was clearly wrong. The second one was ruled out on the pitch, and that should be acknowledged. Under the old system the second one would still be ruled out.

      We battered them in the second half but couldn't wrap the game up, and had to sweat it out the last 15 minutes. But the second goal put a more respectable look on the scoreline. It's the first time we've beaten them at home in consecutive seasons since 2011, but it was well worth the long wait. As before the game, the media talk after it was all about the mancs, when it finally hit them that the only thing we do at Anfield these days is WIN.

      Keep seeing Mancs saying how the game would have been a lot different if Perriera had scored that first half chance and if Martial took his...

      Chances that came after we had a goal wrongly ruled out, hit the post, missed a tap in and countless other chances.

      Whatever helps them cope I guess. Yes they should have had a goal by half time, but we should have had about 4 and then another 4 before the Martial chance.
