      Should add I do t think we were very good at all in the first half, I'm guessing our shape was wrong and Klopp sorted that at HT. If we ever do that in the Champions League then we could come unstuck. We rode our luck and Saints played a good open game, but if you're going to do that against us, you best take your chances early.

      Never a pen on Ings, no contact. Bobby's appeal, not sure the cross did us any favours because it was well over him.

      As expected, Klopp made positional tweak at HT, and we looked much better 2nd half.

      He really is a master at re-organising.

      MOTM to Henderson, scored one, made one, but really, it could have gone to Salah or Firmino  just as easily.

      I know, it's like he looks at the first 45 mins, then initiates a cheat mode.

      Would have been a very soft pen for me. I thought they had a better shout for an indirect kick in our 6-yard box for a back pass picked up by Alisson. We on the other hand a stonewall penalty with Bobby wrestled down by their defender and it wasn't given.

      Bobby was never getting the cross. The backpass was the one we definitely got away with unless it went forward 😂

      great to see Fab right back on form and OX too

      Thought Fab was less than Fab to be honest no where near usual standard and Virg was less than impressed with him on numerous occasions

      Think he is going to need a couple of games to find his rhythm again, his last two performances reminded me of his early games, where he didn't seem to deal too well with the high press.

      Southampton where lucky to keep all their players on the pitch the amount of times they hauled our players back was ridiculous ,
      Fab looking strong again sitting in front of Virgil and Joe who just get better every game. Second half it was like we could smell blood boy they didn't know how to cope with the intensity. Mo just sublime and looking so happy Bobby is just a magician everyone was superb second half and no matter who picks faults the scoreline is the only stat that matters 4-0 and a 22 point lead

      Another stunning goal from the Ox, you can always rely on our midfield to chip in with a goal or two. Not forgetting a goal from Henderson, with a couple from Mo to give a 4  0 victory over the saints.

      Shearer thinks it's 'incredible' Saints never got a pen. Surely it's not just me who sees Fab didnt make contact, Ings took 2 extra steps then hit the deck.

      Hardly clear or obvious   :dunceblock:

      Is there a stipulation in the rule that permits a player to be rugby-tackled in the penalty area if the ball isn't within a certain distance from him?

      Actually I thought this was his strongest game since returning, especially the 2nd half. Step forward for Fabinho, for me.

      I was at the match and watched him very closely was no where near his standard pre injury but agree better than his previous outings since injury

      Theres not, but I have a feeling the VAR would have found it more 'clear and obvious' if the cross was a little lower. Fabinho wasnt close to his best today, seems the type of player who needs 3 or 4 games before hes back in the swing. He's got some minutes under his belt now, and 2 weeks away from football, just chilling and training. Hopefully back in top form for the CL and the title run in.

      I just felt like in his earlier games since returning he was a liability (especially vs. West Ham and vs. Shrewsbury) while today he had more positive involvement in transitioning to attack, etc. I'm sure you are right that he will improve going forward.

      Good match. Noticing that teams are really trying to break us down with more Pressing and higher lines. Wolves were doing it and Southampton did it also. The first half was really sloppy. I dont see it as Liverpool played bad but Southampton were trying to play up to our level and were successful for 45 minutes but then Southampton ran out of gas and our quality finally took advantage.
      MOTM for me was Hendo. He has been so good this season. I'm glad he's finally been able to really pick up Gerrard's mantle and go with it.

      Having a drink with my youngest, and he's just said Klopp is on "God Mode".

      I think I know what he means, even as he's telling me I'm a thckk f**ker when it comes to computer games.

      He's not wrong, Klopp is on God Mode.

      Blessed be Fowlers Daddy.

      Watched the match again tonight and was struck how, in the final few minutes of the match when we were up 3-0 and then 4-0, the forwards and midfielders are all still pressing. This teams desire, but also its fitness level, is on another galaxy.

      Kids take center stage next week while the first team begin the holiday sweepstakes. Where is everybody off to?
