We need more of it. We're far too nice a team
Both were yellows, nothing more than. Fabinho just blocked him off, absolutely no contact on asm's face, asm played well but went down like a big fanny every time. As for we are liverpool and we shouldn't resort to that. I am old enough to remember far worse than that
Look... I'm not saying we shouldn't play hard and tackle hard but we all know that the game of football has changed since the days Souness and Case ruled our midfield.. Thiago goes in hard but he opens himself up to an instant yellow every time.Milner goes in hard too and often pays the price of a yellow.
We haven't replaced, and never will, Gerrard's crunching tackles and ball winning challenges either.
Back in the day the tackles actually looked worse than they were because both players went for the ball and the ball only... not the man !... unless on the odd occasion the red mist had come down and revenge took over.
The modern game tackles and injuries are usually caused by standing on the top of the ballet dancing boots they all wear and the flight of the tattooed Bumble Bee dive through the air followed by the amateur dramatics.
Grown men they are !! on more money than you or I could ever dream of in a lifetime. !!
FK - I'm old enough to remember too... Phil Thompson pulling John O'Hare back in 78 against Forest, but at least we got punished for that.. and he stayed on the pitch..
the debate goes on...
