      It took me a couple of days to come of that result. One thing I have always been proud about LFC is that even when they lose, they don't roll over like an Arsenal. Even during Hodgson's days, we never lost this badly. When we lost to Scums at Old Trafford (Berbatov scored the last hat trick) , we lost 3-2 although the scoreline is flattering.

      This was a very embarrassing result when you expected us to thump Villa and take advantage of City's slip ups. The international break at this time is irritating and a loss just before it makes the gap sorrowful.

      But, one good thing is that the next game is against the Bitters and I expect Klopp to be fully pumped up for it. I fully expect the players to go back to the basics and at a minimum guarantee a victory.

      I mean I don't,  and wouldnt listen to that sh*te

      But who do they think will win it if we have been "written off"

      They didn't really, it was more how we'd been found out.. No mention of any players missing, no mention of beating Arsenal the previous week, no mention of three deflected goals. We played sh*te we know it but unlike Utd who played sh*te and are sh*te we most certainly are not. We'll bounce back big time from this, as Klopp, the players and everyone involved with the club see it as a huge embarrassment, let them laugh, let Everton have a few weeks in the sun, we'll be laughing come May.

      Will this battering have a lasting effect on the lads, or will it be normal service resumed ? Blame who or what you want, we’ll probably start the next game with the same line up, with perhaps the exception of Hendo.
      As the bitters also seem to be in a purple patch, we’ll only know for sure following that match eh !

      Still be there rooting them on to a 2:1 win 😊


      bound to have a medium term effect, I mean theres a  defeat and theres a f**king trauma, Im genuinely a bit worried now that we havent a reliable keeper and the season is unlike any before.

      Come on now, too many comments here trying to find a positive spin on that result. Looking for excuses, justification, searching back in history to see how we 'turned it around' after our previous worst results.

      Can't be doing with that false optimism. This was an appalling result. This was inexcusable. A true embarrassment on a scale not known for some time. The worst result under Klopp - especially given the circumstances.

      Take note of it. Let's hope we never repeat it, and better improve quickly. I'm not interested in 'lessons learnt' etc. Just get us right again!

      Believe me, I'm not putting a positive spin on it by any means but what do we do? It's happened we have to move on, I just hope the players are furious with their own display, you'll be able to tell that in the next game.. I can't find anything positive to say about the prospect of Adrian in goal. I don't think he should have ever wore the shirt again after the Atletico game.

      You as well?! In mine, most of the team had their bodies inhabited by aliens who couldn't play football to save themselves. I must have a fever.

      What was yours?

      Similar. Had another last night where Thiago was sent in to the club by the Chinese to spread Covid. He even said 'Huawei' on a promo video the day that he signed. Mad sh*t.

      Only problem for me is it take until October 17th to see this team back to the winning and collecting throphies again.
      This game is just strange and abnormal. It can happen again but not in near future.

      It's funny, listening to talk sport we've pretty much been written off... We'll be back with a victory over Everton I've no doubt. My only concern is Adrian I don't trust him one bit, it's not just the mistakes I think he's beaten fairly easy.

      Reactionary bullshit to keep callers ringing in.

      Laughing.....at what? Our trophy haul in the last couple of years or our haul over our entire history?

      Neither one are really laughable to me.

      Laughable is Barcelona........no Big Ears for how long? Getting knocked out after having huge leads to protect...then their greatest ever player wanting to leave them high and dry.

      Now that's something I can laugh at. Anyone laughing at us is doing so because they know their time will come and the only solace they have is one bad loss. 0 points is 0 points, doesn't matter what the score line. We will move on...other teams better as well.

      I don't get Talk Sport in Tasmania, unless it is streamed in which case I still wouldn't get it. Of course the media are going to get mileage out of that thumping. How do you dissect it tactically though? Deflected goals, new keeper, no Mane, lack of focus etc. We have had great success over the last 2 years due to an unbelievable level of effort and some bits of luck too. If our effort dipped last week it can be forgiven surely. I don't think we have been rumbled tactically.

      For my two cents, I don't think Klopp should be too reactionary over one result. However, in the derby I would like to see 3 of Milner, Henderson, Gini or Fabinho in there. I would like to see real aggression back. Its how we play in this system.

      Smashed, beaten, hammered, trounced, embarrassed, all descriptive words that fit well into that defeat to Villa,

      humiliation, we’ve been found out, we’re done, forget the title, etc etc, No, not a f***in chance,

      Should it have happened not really, but it did, sh*t happens we all know that, it feels a thousand times worse of course because we are the Champions, but at the end of the day what have we actually lost, 3 points, that’s all, 3 Points, and of course this seasons 3 game unbeaten record, but we are still five points ahead of our nearest could have been eight, but all ends up, in essentially a two horse race, after three games, I’d snap your hand off for a five point lead,

      So forget the Villa hammering, that is a one off, a game where everything that Villa planned for fell into place, so fair fucks to them, simple fact is we were sh*te, a five goal difference type of sh*te I’ll grant you but we still only lost three points, all the media wankstains and tosspots can say what the f**k they like, they thrive on this kind of sh*t, gets them all hard & excited about how much stick to throw at us, that pedestal they put us on they want to kick it away, so they can put the boot in even more,

      Talkshite, the s*n, mirror and the rest of the redtop fuckstick journo’s will soon be eating out of our hands again very soon, the derby on the horizon will be another opportunity for them to twist the knife if the worst were to happen, and it might, but that still won’t decide where the title ends up, will it ?

      There is no doubt we are not at our best right now, any side in the world would be weaker without a world class GK, and no second keeper will be as good as your main man, in Adrian we do have a decent No2, prone to a brain fart or two, yes, but all keepers make mistakes, so what do we do ?

      Do we stick with him and hope he plays error free, or do we completely f**k with his confidence and play young Kelleher in his stead and hope the young fella don’t succumbed to pressure and make the mistakes we’re hounding Adrian for, say that did happen, then what next, (hypothetically)

      Rocky’s voice;

      Hey Adrian we think you are sh*te but it turns out young Kelleher is worse, so we need you back until Ali is fit, how dya feel mate?  Can’t see Adrian running up the steps of the City hall do you?


      Two weeks recovery is a good thing, by then we should have Hendo, Thiago & Mane back, so all of a sudden things not looking too bad are they, still without our No1 but we have the steel & flare back that was so evidently missing at Villa, wonder if the media fucksticks have thought of that ?

      Well with one keeper blunder and three deflected goals.
      Who’s to say if we had taken a few shots from distance through their packed box, we may have scored 4 deflected goals.
      WTF, take that away and in real terms it was 3:2
      Still a defeat, but the other 4 goals they scored, they hardly took us apart did they ? They got lucky !
      If we can put that behind us and get back to full strength, there still won’t be many who can live with us, that’s for sure.

      Only downside for me now is, will this covid rip through the squad 😱

      If we go to Goodison and beat them, where we very rarely turn up - then this levels out the points of these 2 games for me. If we don't beat Ancelotti then we could have a tricky time this season. We may have lost a bit of hunger.

      Woke up in a sweat this morning thinking how against Villa of all teams.............. think God it wasn’t against Utd!!

      It could be the next game, or the next away game after that, where playing like that, escaping with a similar scoreline would be optimistic.

      We won't buy a reserve keeper. And tbh, it's ridiculous. No keeper on the planet wants to be back up to Alisson. I would rather Kelleher get his chance, as he costs nothing, plays more often (at his level) but I know that realistically Jürgen won't take the risk. It took 2 years and a lot of goals conceded just for him to drop Migs, because he trusted him. The only difference is you have time to develop Kelleher into being a top keeper. You can't with San Miguel, he either has it or hasn't it at this stage of his career, and if he doesn't have it, things happen. He was making mistakes in our last 7-2 game. They didn't matter much. This one did.

      Embarrassing is the perfect word. Laughing stock of the football world.

      What world is this? A bigger laugh than losing 6-1 at home? Embarrassing isn't a word long enough to describe that.

      I try not to get over excited when we win, (winning games at this club should be routine) or very depressed on the rare occasion we drop the ball. The next game is always around the corner, a long corner maybe in this case, but at least we're straight into bat after the international break, no waiting around for Monday night games.

      There's not much to say about this Halloween movie, that hasn't been said already. But I will say is that this is the third 7-2 game in a month. This time we know how it feels to not be on the winning side. But there were various mitigating factors; deflected goals, injuries, corona outbreak, etc. So if it's an isolated result, it's not time to lose our marbles. If it happens again, then it's inquest time.

      10 years ago, we headed into the international break in the relegation zone, after getting embarrassed by Blackpool in our own house. So we had a lot to discuss, not only what was happening on the field, and we really were a laughing stock. We've all come a long way since then.
