I don’t blame Ox for that. It’s too early for him yet. Not his fault.August 14, 2019 at 9:14 pm #1774691
Bring on Wiji for MilnerAugust 14, 2019 at 9:27 pm #1774694
Matip has been really poor today.August 14, 2019 at 9:30 pm #1774697
It’s horrible to watch. We were a mile off at the weekend and the same here.August 14, 2019 at 9:36 pm #1774702
You know something is off when Jorginho is keeping up with our midfield.August 14, 2019 at 9:36 pm #1774703
Know it’s been discussed before, but our general ball control is poor. We may have had a strong previous season, but we were still loose many times in possession. That unsurprisingly hasn’t improved this season.August 14, 2019 at 9:44 pm #1774705
How do they have more energy than us right now? We played 2 days earlier than they did yet we look completely dead on our feet. Bring on Shaq for Henderson. Midfield absolutely useless today.August 14, 2019 at 10:10 pm #1774708
Yep Razor, midfield is shocking.August 14, 2019 at 10:14 pm #1774709

Defence is all over the place
High line etc been very poorAugust 14, 2019 at 10:16 pm #1774710
Henderson’s name hasn’t been mentioned since half time. Mane was the wrong player to take off. Midfield is out of legs. Wijnaldum hasn’t been much better than Milner. Set pieces have been abysmal. Chelsea look the more likely right now.August 14, 2019 at 10:47 pm #1774717

Delighted we won
Defence was all over the place
We were sloppy but we will get much better as we get fitterAugust 14, 2019 at 10:52 pm #1774721
Shocking display but all that matters now is that we have another trophy in the cabinet. VVD at times single handedly keeping us in it. Matip played a lot better in extra time. Adrian had a good game and was unlucky with the penalty. Hoever really needs to step up this season, the sooner the better. The drop off in attacking output was too significant with Gomez at FB. After that display Klopp needs to change the front 6 for Southampton. They look exhausted. Sean is right. That high line was very poor. Adrian isn’t a sweeper keeper like Alisson is and the midfield let everything through them today. Fabinho made some good interceptions but too often too much went past him. I don’t know what Henderson was supposed to be doing or if he even knew what he was supposed to be doing. Milner should never play in midfield again. Wijnaldum hasn’t picked up where he left off last season. FFS just play Shaqiri already.August 14, 2019 at 10:58 pm #1774727
Again, we showed we can dig deep when we need to, even when not on top. Nevertheless we need to start upping it soon. Hope Keita recovers soon.August 14, 2019 at 10:59 pm #1774728
Did we just lose…
Much better 2nd half… Never should have let them back into the game, a really soft penalty and contradicting refereeing…
Van Dijk for man of the match but we were never really comfortable on the ball, such a high line and no distribution from the back…
Adrian needs to get used to this and the rest will follow, I’m delighted for him to seal the supercup with the last touch of the game.August 14, 2019 at 11:03 pm #1774731
Great to see Henderson lift another trophy!!August 14, 2019 at 11:04 pm #1774734
You should put that in the Henderson page for Davinci.August 14, 2019 at 11:05 pm #1774735
That was sweet 😊August 14, 2019 at 11:09 pm #1774739
Delighted with the win.

Screw the performance; it’s another trophy.August 14, 2019 at 11:19 pm #1774744
Bobby Firmino…….. is still our most important player. Well let’s call it a draw between him and van Dijk.
We were criminal in midfield and ball retention is becoming a very big problem. The high line was risky especially when we were giving it away so cheaply. Looks like we are counting on var to end off side goals. No way a penalty but not faulting the ref, var needs to be able to over turn that.
Looks like we are going to have to grow into this season because for large parts of the game we looked there for the taking.
I remember last year we waited all year for things to click and return to our fluid form of the close of 17/18 season where we were untouchable….completely on another level. It never happened. We got good at grinding out results but never really returned to that form.
Positives: Firmino is still a genius. Mane and Salah looking sharp. Adrian got to be the hero in the biggest game of his career. Van Dijk didn’t get injured! And yes a cup…..mmmm….shiny…
Negatives: our midfield is in a shambles. Robertson, Fabinho, Van Dijk and Salah all knackered for the Southampton away game on Sat.
