      this is still looking like a looong season.

      Definitely if you are going to keep posting negative sh*t in winning match threads.

      Before those subs we were literally on our knees, was hard to watch.

      But 3 good goals away from home - happy days!

      3 wins on the bounce, absolutely brilliant

      A tough side riding high with a new manager at home and we beat them 3-1.

      Think some are getting a little bit spoiled trying to pick apart this performance too much.

      Thought we got back control when Keita came in, he inserted some steel into our midfield. Robertson motm for me. He seemed to be everywhere today.

      Darwin's instinct is brilliant but when he thinks about stuff, he's is not the best and takes too much touches.

      Robertson was on fire and VVD/Matip were good too.

      3 points in the bag.

      I like Nunez: he's fast, he plays direct, i.e. tries to shoot asap, and he is a danger with his head, i.e. finally crosses make sense while for years I aksed why bc we only had (comparably) small guys in the middle. He'll be a worldwide top 3 striker in 2 years....

      Good first half, they really took it to us for the first 15 mins of the second half. We bend but didn't break and eventually got the 3rd goal needed to take the pressure off.

      Considering how poor we been away from home it is nice to see us grind out a result. Next in the game should be easy considering how poor Lecister City has been playing but we know how teams like to turn up vs us

      Good win today. I thought we were very sharp on the ball 8n the first half but then let them get on top of us in the 2nd half until Klopp made the changes. We created a bunch of chances but always looked like we might concede. Just need to pull a run together to push for the top four. I thought Robertson was back to his best, Salah looked very sharp and Nunez was full of industry (without the composure to finish one himself). Was great to see a couple of the youngsters get on, they both did very well.

      Playing away from home, there's gonna be periods when the home side get a foothold in the game and see a lot of the ball. With the crowd behind them, Villa upped their energy second half and did dominate for a while.During that period, i expect them to create chances, but not like the way they opened us up so easily. Thank f**k none of them had any composure in front of goal. Not sure whats caused us to become so vulnerable at the back, don't think anyone is. Could it be the midfield getting left behind in transition when we lose the ball upfield and the long ball cuts them out ? On one occasion out centre backs were so far apart, there was an acre of space to run into. Scared the sh*t out of me, and whats worrying is, it happens at least once a game.

      Is it the midfield passed over, or the back four all out of position ? Gotta get it sorted or games against better finishers are gonna put a downer on our quest for top 4.
      Glad to see we've signed another striker to cover our injuries, and a half decent one at that. Another good option going forward. Just a decent centre mid now, who's not injury prone. Keita done well yesterday, calm, simple use of the ball, keeping possession and feisty in winning the ball back. He made a difference but I was worried how long he might last.
      Leicester at ours up next, then away o Brentford. Two tricky games, lets hope we can keep the wins going.

      Great win. Robbo on fire. One of these games nunez is gonna score a hat trick. Getting and making chances is main thing.

      Brilliant seeing the young bucks get some game time.

      3 points and the reds looked good for the majority.
      Great subs by Klopp, Villa we're putting us under good pressure but Naby and Elliott changed the game.

      Our defence still make errors, but as long as we out score the opposition, all well and good. Nice to see Bajcetic scoring !

      Liked the result but its still a very chaotic style of play we are using this season. Took them to score for Klopp to make 2 subs for instruction to keep hold of the ball more to hit home.

      At times we go from front to back in far too few passes and it means we are either trying to score straight away or we are pinned back defending with very little respite.

      The control that we have when we are at our beat just isn't there this season. Makes for basketball style stuff and means we are dependent on the opposition missing or Alisson saving us.

      All teams have to deal with their midfield being penetrated otherwise there would be no need for a defence, Our defence has been off it this season, most notable because we've been fortress-like for years. If we're going to go on a winning run (and we need to) then we have to shape up at the back, we're getting cut open far too easily.

      Good performance. Didn't put them to the sword after going 2 up. Credit to them. Darwin again a threat and the sending off aside he's coming along nicely. The Ox did OK. And Doak and Bajcetic did some good stuff.

      Revving up for the campaign.

      Yeah the other point was WTF was that from Trent...that pass from the outside of his boot into the space for Robbo to run on to. I mean that was 100% World Class Gareth. Trent saw the space before Robbo started his run and dropped the ball within millimetres of the spot he was aiming for.

      Whatever they're paying him...it's not enough..

      The way Nunez volleyed that long ball over the top was brilliant. Was difficult to get on to the ball and make that connection. Seen people laugh at him hitting it straight at the keeper, but the impressive part was he hit it!

      But other parts of his game were lacking finishing ability again. Assist was nice.. just glad it was him providing the ball not receiving it to score ;)

      Saw the highlights, not the full game, so can't tell much.
      In general seemed like we played with good pace, and hit more decent early longish balls for fast lads like Mo and Darwin to run onto, deffo what we should be doing.
      No doubt Darwin is fast, but still in one-on-ones with keeper finishing is poor, a lot of times doesn't even make the keeper work/hit the target. Still early, but for the money paid, would have expected more goals per number of good chances he gets. Maybe it will come. Jury still out.
      Villa had a shedload of really good chances and could easily have 3 or 4 more if they had someone up front who could hit a barn door. Defensively still coughing up chances, the ones yest would be punished by better teams.
      But still, 3 points, 3 goals, lot of players available and the moral looks good. Fingers crossed we can keep it going.

      See we've signed another striker. Not sure why we aren't focusing on a midfielder, but maybe that's happening behind the scenes. Lot of talk we'll do something in Jan, and to get CL we might have to.

      That first goal really was a beauty. Even better watching the day after.

      Gave Trent MOTM for an outstanding first half. Robbo would have been the other contender.

      We were good going forward but too open at the back again. That spell at the start of the second half was interesting - we were getting completely overrun, Jürgen subs on Keita and Elliot for Thiago and Ox and we instantly became more solid defensively, and kept the ball better and got our composure back. Thought the Keita for Thiago sub was the key one. Great though he can be, Thiago, I think he's been a weak link for us this year - too many flash, high risk passes in our half, encouraging the opposition, and dives in too much defensively instead of sprinting back to cover.

      Can't believe Darwin got MOTM from Andy Townsend. Fair enough, he did keep going, and I agree that is the most important thing for a striker - just keep making the runs, buying a ticket, and the goals will come. (I always thing of Inzaghi as the ultimate example of that.) So yeah it is encouraging for the future that Darwin has the appetite and belief to keep doing that, but no way was he the best player on the park last night.

      Bacjetic took his goal reallly well, looks very composed for his age. With him and Morton, we do have a couple of promising young DMs in the making. Good to see youth getting a chance - think Jürgen is quietly rejuvenating the squad (maybe not so quietly if Gakpo and another arrive this window).

      There was more energy and running in the team than earlier in the season (Fabinho looked better than he has in a while, Darwin did put in a shift up front), so overall a good 3 points and encouraging signs. But still a fair bit to improve on the defensive side.
