      Tough game against Leeds with the way Bielsa has them playing especially when a couple of players are having an off day. Glad to see Salah back at it, but thought at any point from the hour mark onwards Bobby should of been hooked for Taki and I would of taken off Gini before Keita.

      VVD scared me a bit as well, deffo an off week for him!

      Hendo and Trent didn't look fully fit and it showed.

      Three points taken on opening day is all you can ask for though.

      Our defence was poor today. Odd.

      It's been this way since after the Covid-19 break.

      Good thing we won eventually.

      MOTM obviously Salah for his calmness and wonderful powerful strike.

      Van Dijk was too casual for their second goal but recovered well.

      Jones was given some faith by Klopp playing in front of Milner.

      That combination between Firmino, Mane and Salah. Firmino with a delicious turn in his own half, then the sharp passes between the other two, if only Mané could have tried to thread it one more time through to Mo, would have been a lovely goal.

      Huge relief. Impressed with Leeds today, and happy to see them do well, but we were shocking.

      Stone cold penalty to get us going, but relying on a fortunate penalty at the end to save our embarrassment.

      Delighted with Salah grabbing a hat trick first match though. That can only bode well. Absolutely smashed in his perfect 2nd goal of the game. Clearly our best player on the pitch.

      Firmino impressed with his magic again. It's not what he does, but what he doesn't do that is the secret. You don't see it. You don't notice it. But what a game he plays! He was on the pitch for all 4 goals yesterday! What would we have done without him?

      Just after watching Match Of The Day and I must say, what an impressive job they made of making it look like Leeds dominated the game. I mean I’m pretty sure they showed all 6 of the shots they had on goal as well as their 2 clear offside goals, what reason they had to include them I have no idea as there was no doubt over either one of them, same as Mane’s goal which they did exclude. People must have been a bit confused when the stats appeared afterwards showing 22 shots to 6 and xG of 2.7 to about 0.3.

      Ha ha but come on, that was to be expected. The narrative was always going to be ‘amazing Leeds’ and ‘amazing Salah’

      Shambolic defending flattered Leeds who it looks will give many teams a fright this season.
      MOTM Salah who looked as sharp as his new hairstyle.

      Really play like this against any of the Top boys and we lose easily!



      Fair enough. That’s your assumption. My other reasonable assumption is that we may not play like this against the top boys. The key is we walked away with three points at the end of the game. That’s all to yesterday’s game.

       Nevertheless as a precursor it did not leave most with great confidence for games against superior opponents.

      “You’re as good as your last game” is essentially in force right now. Adding to how well teams like Chelsea acquired in this window vs whom we have acquired, it’s a double whammy.

      Put these two sentiments together and we get worry and fear. One of the best ways to alleviate this for most of us plain fans isn’t “training”, but “we need to acquire - has to be so and so”.

      In truth we need just one thing. All existing players to get back to their devastating form by the next match. Possible and can be done. It all depends on how well we work in training.

      Really don't get the Allison criticism on here and elsewhere after yesterday, this  attitude of 'Can't remember the last save he made' stuff is nonsense. Not a chance with any of the goals yet still people complaining., bizarre. Suppose with lovren, lallana etc gone people are looking for scapegoats now

      Plenty of invention on the front foot - to laid back on the back foot. Defending has to be about getting the basics right, fundamentals etc. Plus the back 4 are to high at times and it's not difficult if we lose possession for teams to get in behind us. Have to get back to high energy defending, not strolling out to challenge.

      But Salah was buzzing from the off. Keita still needs to be a bit more confident. Got out with 3 points and maybe we did need to push for the winner, a stroll was not what we needed.

      Leeds were excellent last night, the pressing, the way they attack in numbers, the incredible work rate. Remind you of anyone? Bielsa is a special coach to get that level of performance from mostly Championship level players. They'll finish in the top ten for sure.

      I've no worries about Liverpool, we'll find our best soon enough.

      Hopefully we start finding our best against Chelsea because if our defence is that bad against them then they'll murder us. There is a weird kind of complacency in the defence ever since we won the league and we need to snap the f**k out of it, I'd even consider dropping Virgil just to give him a bit of a kick up the arse.

      Great to see Mo bag a hat trick, would love to see him have another year like his first with us.

      Drop Virgil?

      You can guarantee we'll be murdered if did something as stupid as that. You don't drop the best CB in the world after a couple of iffy performances. Especially when he scores goals even when not at his best.

      We will be better next week. Trent will knock the rust off and Matip will probably come in for Joe. Virgil will be his usual world class self.

      I'm just thinking he needs to know he's not undroppable, same as any player.

      Is there an issue with VVD's laid back style.Does that influence others to be a bit complacent. Does seem that we have lost a bit of aggression, bit of bite. We give the opposition a tiny bit to much time to get composed, pick out runners..we did that for their second goal. We have to get back to high energy defending, doing the basics. Nobody is undropable..nobody.
