      If a handball is not on purpose, i thought the play stood? and the lack of consistency is shocking when you have the tool. Pogba heads the ball off McGuire's hand and it goes in and counts.

      Different rules for United just look at the penalties

      Putting aside the length of time it took though, which decision did they get wrong?


      The offside before their penalty.

      The handball given against Sadio.

      Various little niggly fouls that weren't given or were given wrongly for both sides.

      Unless the first two have been proven to be right, I had to turn over after the final whistle so haven't watched any analysis.

      I have to reveal though that I went 1-1 in the prediction League so it works for me like. 😁

      The offside was correct he was on . Agree with the Mane one though very harsh

      What an utterly stupid game, and what a waste of a chance to rest players. If Klopp was so f**king desperate to win this meaningless game, why not start his main team, then take them off once we were several goals to the good, and also why not bring on some decent midfielders, Minamino and Clarkson were f**king terrible and the less said about Origi the better.

      I'm really quite pissed off with Klopp about that team selection, Salah playing the whole game, Jota most of it. at least he had the sense to sub Fabinho off, hopefully not because of an injury though.

      Salah's just had a fortnight off at home. What does he need a rest for? He moaned the last time he got subbed off as well.

      More likely he might not play the full 90 this weekend ahead of Spurs next midweek.

      We’d already qualified, and complain every week about not considering player physical welfare...

      My apologies Benito - misread aren't as are. Tend to agree with you on that point.

      Regardless of the result, although it is always nice to win, surely avoiding injury,  to any player a major factor the way things have been going this season.

      Thought Jürgen's attitude tonight was like a 7 year old child going into Woolworths in the 1980's and picking up a paper bag and chucking any old sweets in it from the Pick n Mix. Nothing made any sense at all. But hey he's been an absolute genius for the last 30 months so keep on doing what you think you need to do.

      Weird selections, weird game, weird decisions, weird outcome.
      Still topped the group, all done until the knockout draw.
      On to Fulham, get that one out of the way and prepare to tear spuds a new one.

      I thought it was a good team selection a mix of first team, fringe and youth.   We are short of players but feel if he hadn't selected the few senior players he would have probably sent the u23 manager.   Like in previous situations.

      Quote from saille29
      Just mike the refs up with var so we can hear the reasoning just like rugby & cricket, just talk us through the process it's not hard, we may not agree but we at least know what is going on in varland

      If you don't speak Native Level French, talking through the process wouldn't help very much in this game. Whatever language you speak, the VAR decisions were correct.

      Salah running away from the ball by Origi before he scored, summed up the general team performance. The penalty was a disappointing end to Kellehers spell in goal, but he hands over the gloves after 3 great performances. Now we can look forward to the draw, then concentrate on the league and cup for the next couple of months.

      Just watching it back now as I only caught the last 20 minutes live. I haven’t voted for motm but based on the first half I’ve been impressed with Rhys Williams, very Composed on the bell, position ally sound, getting more vocal and growing in confidence by the game. Also, I think young Clarkson did well based on the first half. Lots to like. A few having absolute kittens about the senior players but it’s no good throwing the kids to the lions, they need minutes but not in a side getting battered 3-4 nil. Other positives were minutes for Trent and Keita plus Kelleher again showed calmness and confidence in goal, a far cry from Adrian despite the pen.

      My guess is: Klopp uses these games as training games and eases up the training accordingly. It kind of make sense because you learn the most out of real games. Managers seem to cope with all those "too many" games in that they decrease training intensity.

      Minamino and Origi were so poor. Even if he had scored, I think Minamino was garbage yesterday. Every time he touches the ball or controls it, it seems that he'll lose possession 50% of the time.

       It was a risk to play Williams and Koumetio without a proper DM in front of them, until Henderson came in. Jota tried too hard to create on his own and wasted many good opportunities. He tried to overdo and compensate for this team's blatant lack of creativity.

      Nah changed that start of last season. Anything that hits the hand now leading to a goal is ruled out. Deliberate or not. We've been stung with that one a few times.

      my thoughts too, he lost some match fitness those 2 weeks off. And we dont play again till sunday afternoon, so actually plenty time to rest. Also we dont have any injury worries up front its all MF & defence.

      Origi let himself down again, that could be him done now.

      In hindsight, we are all better than him! We wouldn't have committed the mistakes he made, in hindsight. And if we win, "what a great manager." If Klopp's normal, that makes us armchair managers.
