70 mins in… Sturridge, Shaq, Roberston are stand out players. Ings is a trier to be fair to him. Lalanna looks a little off the pace. Karius comes on and gets a top class applaud. Well done Liverpool fans!
Interesting to hear a candid opinion of Souness on LFC channel who admitted that when he first saw young Buffon that he never rated him and nicknamed him “Buffoon” lol. I guess there is hope for Karius somewhere in that tale 🙂
Who said “The Power Cube” Shaquiri was lazy? Has worked his socks off in all the games I’ve watched him and just put in another assist for Sturridge 3-1 now!
Lol Karius with a defensive edge of the penalty area header, warmly applauded!
We looked much better in the first half – attacking in waves. The second half we didn’t dominate as much but we were still in control. Shaqiri HAS to be an important player for the first team, not just a backup. Sturridge will be our impact sub I’m guessing but has proved that he’s good enough to start games.
Anyone else from outside the first eleven impressed during this preseason?
Sturridge and Shaq really giving us options up front, seems know one wants to play with Virgil, would stick Lovren straight in at the weekend. Fab having a slow start, can see him needing some time before he starts outperforming Hendo, Wij and Milner
Thought we looked pretty good last night, probably should have scored a couple more, but Keita really impressed me, I think he will slot straight into our style of play, I wouldn’t start Fab at the weekend though, I don’t think he has settled in yet.
Who was commentating then Pax? I thought it sounded like Souness lol.
As for Keita he is definitely what we needed. Someone who can run through the midfield with the ball from defence to attack.
In previous years we lacked this and so opposing teams would shut down the passes the midfieders made. With Keita we aren’t so predictable, we now have a player who can pick up the ball and run from deep positions a bit like Tottenham’s Dembele but better IMHO. Throw in Fabinho too and now the link up between attack and midfield and defence is much better.
Also props to Gini who looks really good, looking more like Newcastle Gini.
