      As long as every other team keeps dropping points we'll be ok but the attitude at the moment is all wrong, we are far to sloppy at times, and when was the last time we came out energised in a second half, what the hell is Klopp saying to them at half time?? "Great job lads now just relax the second half" because that's what it seems the lads are hearing.

      Absolutely f**king embarrassing result against a sh*te team, when will we learn that crosses do NOT work against a side who are tall and physical, why didn't we try more balls like the one Mane scored from or just try neat one-two's and drive straight at them OR radical thought take some f**king shots form distance, at least work the keeper!!

      As good as we are there is still loads of room for improvement, set pieces being the main one!

      More annoying to me, is not being able to beat a team managed by Fat Sam, who deploys such negative tactics, simply playing not to lose. Good riddance when they will more than likely be relegated to the championship, where they belong !

      Really? The team that can't beat Fulham Brighton and west Brom is the only team that looks like winning the league?

      We should be out of sight.

      As for today ... what sticks out to me apart from the lazy 2nd half performance and West Brom having more shots on goal than us at anfield was jurgen. His subs were poor again... it seemed the team and jurgen were the only ones who couldn't see it coming. Taki ... shaq?? Nahhh origi.

      And im done with keita. A complete waste of time and wages. 3 years of being injured and flatter to deceive performances. Time to cut our losses and invest elsewhere.

      Need 6 points from Newcastle and Southampton as with the Manchester clubs coming up on the rails and utds next 2 games being at home we face the real possibility of going into the utd game behind them or being replaced at the top by them when we should have been out of sight.

      United are behind us because their performances have been even more hit/miss than ours.  That's why they will be playing in the Micky Mouse Cup this spring while we will still be competing for another big ears. 

      It was a sh*t performance, but we're top of the pile mate.  Get a grip and try to enjoy the rest of the Holiday period 😉

      That’s the thing, last season we had no days like this. Things went our way. Won plenty of tight games. This season the same thing was never going to happen again. We’re top again, with a shitload of injuries this season. We’re doing fine. The only real worry for me is the injuries. We need a centre half.

      Just feel that we dropped 2 points. The only thing i can complain about is if Thaigo was fit enough, he should have gotten the chance to get some time in this game. We could really used him today.

      No its getting a pain in the hole here. Any below perfect performance is met with moans. Any game not won leads to hysteria. How dare we be sh*te, how dare someone not roll over when were sh*te to let us bag the win

      Every team has dropped points this season that before kick off they think this is 3 points....So far today is Klopp, Salah, Bobby , Gini and mostly Jones fault.

      Realise that in real football sh*t happens and unexpected points get dropped. People counting up points as if they were a given and then cry about it. City dropped 2 points to wba  a week or 2 back. Its football

      This team has spoilt people. And you know what that leads to

      Gutted today. I was drawn out of the ballot for this one so as it was the first time since March I had been to Anfield I was really looking forward to this but it turned out to be a sh*t show in truth.

      Had no complaints with the starting 11. It was the strongest we could have put out really.

      So the game starts and WBA’s intentions were clear straight away. No surprise when they’re managed by that fat toaster headed tw*t. 5 at the back sitting on the edge of their box with a midfield four sitting a yard in front of them. F***ing boring sh*t football.

      The game was flat. Slow. Sh*t. It was just sh*t. Proper sh*t. They made it difficult for us but I thought we were really poor on the ball. No urgency about us, mostly going sideways and no creativity at all.

      Sadio scored a great goal early on but I don’t remember any other chances after that. We looked out of ideas very early on. I was getting really frustrated that we weren’t pulling wide and then driving into their box running at their full backs. Instead, we would work the ball sideways at a slow pace until we passed back inside for somebody to clip it into the box and it just wasn’t working. Of course it wouldn’t work when they have three 6’3 centre halves and we have Bobby. Why not try something different? Run at them. Have a shot. Test the goalie. Did their goalie have a save to make other than the bobby header late on?

      Despite being poor in possession, we were in complete control of the game. Wba had one chance all match which was just a long hoof over the top but they were never going to score unless we made a mistake. And unfortunately, we did. It was Curtis Jones who made that mistake. He very stupidly dribbled around in his own half in a dangerous area and lost the ball, which gave wba a corner who then scored from it.  That was shocking to be honest, even school boys don’t do that. I’ve just said it in his player thread but my ten year old knows better not to do that so anybody who says ‘he’s young’ or ‘we should have defended the corner’ are talking rubbish to be honest. He cost us the points today. That may sound harsh because nobody played well today but it’s still true.

      Thought the whole team were crap to be honest. Surprised Sadio has got as many votes as he has in the motm poll because apart from his goal I don’t remember him in the game at all. I thought the front three and midfield three were all sh*te to be honest. I gave it to Fabinho, I thought he was our best player and Indon’t blame him for that massive lad out jumping him for their goal.

      Little criticism of Klopp today too because I think he could have made changes a lot earlier when it was obvious it wasn’t working. Also think he could have managed the game a little better as we only had plan A today. There was no plan B. It was just the same thing over and over for 90 mins which wba comfortably dealt with.

      We’ve dropped some points to some proper sh*te this season. Brighton, Fulham, wba and Everton. We should have a healthy lead at the top now but it is what it is. Let’s bounce back and get three points on Wednesday and start putting some real space between ourselves and the rest of the pack.

      We need to buck up now, I think we will. We are desperate for Thiago in games like tonight's but look Spurs have drawn nobody is kicking on as yet luckily for us.
      We obviously need to concentrate on our own performances but City are the only one's I'm still concerned about, United at a push...

      Oh well.
      I’m more annoyed with klopp there than any player.
      He has become too slow with his subs. He moans that we should have 5 subs but only makes them when players are injured or there are 2 minutes left.

      Awful performance.
      And not for the first time.
      We are allowing Manchester City back into the race and that’s not a good thing.
      We should be 10 points clear now but too many below par performances are costing us.
      And salah today played like the salah at Chelsea when they sold him. Frustrating as hell.

      But he doesn't have 5 subs does he? And as he keeps saying, he needs to save one of the three because of the increased risk of muscle injuries.

      The stuff here about Mo. You can't be serious

      Up the top of the table Reds.

      But yet wouldn't that be boring if that's how games were decided.

      Stressful season this one, I just pray its not United or Everton who take advantage of it.

      We have some really tough games coming up and Newcastle away will be the first one. City didn't blow them away and they'll have honed their craft at sitting in. Then saints away will be a test of a makeshift defence.

      'even schoolboys don't so that' ;D

      Such nonsense. He made a mistake which lead to a corner.

      I've seen far more experienced players than Jones do the very same and he'll get a talking to from Jürgen, learn from it and move on.

      Should have won this game but you always get this frustrating game a few times a season and this time we weren't focused enough to get a win.

      Felt like the second half when West Brom open up and push guys forward more on the counter Klopp made the wrong decision not to make more aggressive to find the second goal to kill the game instead of staying the cosre hoping to see it out. Especially in the middle where Hendo ding balls far post and passing was not his sharpest, Gini having one of those games we see time and time again where r he doesn't look like wants to break forward and Jones who was ineffective for majority of the match.

      Biggest disappointment for besides dropping points was again watching Matip hobble off the pitch, such a good defender (nice pass on the Mane goal) fustrating to see it happening time and time again.

      Golden opportunity wasted but nice to be back it mid week to reset and hopefully put in a much better showing.

      Am I the only one who thought we played well in the first half? It was as dominant a 45 minutes as you will ever see, much like the first half vs Spurs. I believe we had 83% of the ball, that’s ridiculous. The 2nd half they played a little bit further up the pitch, offered more threat when they had the ball and everyone of our lads seemed to drop their level a touch. We ran out of idea offensively and I think in those situations we need Klopp to adjust the tactics. Whether that’s playing Salah through the middle and trying to get him closer to their goal or bringing on Origi and continuing to cross the ball.

      But all said and done were sitting at the top despite losing VVD, Gomez, Thiago and Jota to injury. Have to be happy with that.

      Yeah I though first half we were dominant. But you could see certain players just were not at it. Salah for one.
      Second half was pitiful. Klopp should have freshened it up as soon as wba started to turn the tide.
      But yeah. How we are top with the injuries we have is astonishing and credit to the club.

      the only difference between the spurs game and this one, was we won the Spurs game. I didn't see a lot of difference in quality between spurs & WBA, and certainly not their tactics. We have to accept that this low block (used to be called every man behind the ball) is here to stay whilst we are unbeaten at home in 3 calendar years.

      We are going to fail now and again to break teams down, its life.

      We are top and will be top when we play next. These players do not let us down very often, they knew they should have done more yesterday.

      Am I the only one who thought we played well in the first half? It was as dominant a 45 minutes as you will ever see, much like the first half vs Spurs. I believe we had 83% of the ball, that’s ridiculous. The 2nd half they played a little bit further up the pitch, offered more threat when they had the ball and everyone of our lads seemed to drop their level a touch. We ran out of idea offensively and I think in those situations we need Klopp to adjust the tactics. Whether that’s playing Salah through the middle and trying to get him closer to their goal or bringing on Origi and continuing to cross the ball.

      Might have been dominant in terms of possession but that basically means nothing with one shot on target

      'even schoolboys don't so that' ;D

      Such nonsense. He made a mistake which lead to a corner.

      I've seen far more experienced players than Jones do the very same and he'll get a talking to from Jürgen, learn from it and move on.

      Should have won this game but you always get this frustrating game a few times a season and this time we weren't focused enough to get a win.

      Yeah, you’re right, it is nonsense isn’t it?. That’s why when you watch school boy football they all dribble around on the edge of their box going nowhere dont they?  Or maybe you’re just another person who’s never played football.

      Just because other players have made mistakes on a pitch before doesn't excuse jones for what he did. It was shocking. As I said you don’t find that at school boy level never mind professional premier league level. It was awful.

      Can’t be arsed with the forum, it’s just full of dick heads who talk sh*te. See ya later.
