Ok, so lots of rumours about who is going and who is coming and so forth, well for my money, no one in the current first team should need to go. The boss/ board did his/ their sums for this and next season including the costs of the new stadium. Yes we should, like all teams remove some deadwood, but wholesale changes are not (IMHO) required.
We need a strong finish to the end of a very long season and look forward to European Football again next season.

Now I can imagine there are a few frustrations with our team tonight, especially when they opt to stay on the team bus for the first half! I lay the blame for this defeat firmly at the feet of the manager. Klopp can inspire a Liverpool team no better talented than our squad, to beat City, so why not us? If we are to progress any further in the FA cup and realise 4th place, we need players to perform from the kick-off. If not and you want to play by the minute.

Just donate your wages for your 'non-committed' part of the game to a local North London charity. There are 4 games to go in the league and we need 4 wins, anything less is failure. Did we really put out our first team tonight? COYS.

I’d argue our team is better, but that’s not really the point, you are capable or atleast giving them a game but I was disappointed in how you guys played, you can turn up against any team yet it was like you decided you couldn’t be bothered. I think the team comaraderie isn’t quite there like it is for us at Liverpool, players wanting to leave, Harry Kane really pushing a goal from Eriksen. Then next week you’ll go smash someone and it’ll be The opposite of the performance at city.

YOU have a talented bunch though and when they click, as they usually do, you’re very effective.

Hi guys, I can understand the frustration from today's game against Swansea. We have to find a way to beat teams who want to 'park the bus' in their own half.
We have quality players in the squad and need to employ those in positions that challenge the opposition. Watching other teams that encounter this 'park the bus ' problem, they rely on a lot of movement around the penalty box, working their triangles until an opening appears.
If we were 'stage drunk' after the mid-week success over BD, the coaching staff have their work cut out to keep the players focused.

Problem is Tiffy, what creativity do we have on the bench if Erikson and Ali have a quiet game.

Ok, so there maybe a chance for Spurs in the Lge Cup Final, provided they are prepared to work as much as Chelsea players did today. Were you watching Spurs?

I think we’ll get the backlash of that result next weekend . We’ve gone backwards. Jose should be sacked, he’s the problem at the club. Granted we have some real mediocre players. But he sets the team up week in week out. In fact he sets the team up not to lose. (How’s that working out you dinosaur) his tactics are so out of date now. Or he need 300 million spend.
Moving on to man management:

Publicly criticising players or your work force in any walk of life is wrong on so many levels. After the players criticism he then expects to get a shift out of them. Really. He needs to take a real look at himself.

It’s there for all to see, not one single player looks happy at the club.
Sack him, get the Leeds manager in . 😀😀.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 10:35:48
DR looks like JM has just been sacked.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 12:19:03
It was on the cards Mgm. He's taken the club backwards.

That being said, There's a lot a players that have under performed for what ever reason that it. It can only be Jose's tactics.

However - We still need some big investment into the 1st team. we also need to ship out quite a few. Lamela, Le Celso, Sanchez, Loris, Aurier, Winks, Dier. to name a few.

Jose's issue is that he's to suborned and need to move with the times. He won trophies, we know that, However that's history.



17 Apr 2021 07:13:33
The players are not playing with confidence at all. Giving the ball away so many times in the match put our 'defensive three' under extra pressure. We wait to see how bad Harry's injury is before we resign ourselves to a Lge Cup bashing. That said, under the previous manager the team made it to the Ch. Lge final without him! If the current manager cannot resolve the confidence issue then bring in a special-ist motivator to sort it out now. It was never going to be easy at Goodison with both teams chasing a fourth spot, but we really made them look good. Would a season out of Europe be so bad if we can get the confidence back?




04 Apr 2021 19:33:47
M wheels, you are right, it is very frustrating for us to watch this every week. We come Back from one down, then take the lead but give it away again so cheaply. Playing three at the back is great if you have three! Even playing out of defence is proving to be difficult and we give the ball away too many times. We are our worst enemy most of the time and this current, poor football is going to cost us a top four place. It was there for the taking today and we cocked up big time.




16 Dec 2020 22:01:31
Ok, well done to Liverpool, will Berwign really rue his misses now. Good header for the winner, but was that ball inside the D before being taken. Heads up lads. COYS.


1.) 16 Dec 2020 22:15:56
Plus Dier was blocked.

2.) 16 Dec 2020 22:19:23
Heads up I've been told that for the last 30 years following the crap football club.

3.) 16 Dec 2020 22:41:46
We’re giving up too many goals in the last 10-15 minutes of games that is costing us points. Maybe it’s fatigue and loss of concentration. but with a couple of upgrades in January, if that’s financially possible, we will could give Liverpool some serious competition for the title through to the end.

It’s a strange season and Jose’s sitting deep and playing on the counter is the right approach for a condensed season when playing on so many fronts, injuries and fatigue are going to be an issue. That in itself may play into the hands of some of the teams not competing at any level n Europe.



14 Sep 2020 07:02:43
Trying to find a positive comment from that dismal performance and all I could come up with is there were no injuries. That said, it's hardly surprising if you're going to walk through every match! We're the players issued extra lead to put in their boots or what? Looking at the performances over the weekend of other Premiership clubs, it is hard to imagine who we might beat. We have become a side that are too easy to read and easily neutralised. Regrettably we have not progressed under the new manager and the heroics of the las CL campaign seem a distant memory. We need the players to step up if we are to advance in the EL and attain a respectable PL position come the end of the season. COYS.


{Ed025's Note - your biggest problem tiffy is that your better players will not put their careers on hold for very long, the likes of kane, son and alli want to win things and will have a lot of suitors waiting in the wings, for me the problem is the manager and his style of play, slow build up lack of intensity and the selection of mediocre players like winks and dier (should be dire) along with many others, under poch you were a joy to watch but now lets be honest you are boring mate, you may think im being harsh but it how a lot of people see your club unfortunately..

1.) 14 Sep 2020 08:52:34
Spot on there ED, we are a boring side and bang average at best, we have 2 world class players and that's Kane and son and the rest are poor.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately your right raver, you have gone from CL finalists to premier league also rans in a very short space of time mate and for me its the change of manager thats the problem..

2.) 14 Sep 2020 11:28:37
No doubt we’re in trouble . quite amazing how quickly we went from playing fluid attractive football to these constantly dire performances during which most of the players fail to even put a half hearted shift in.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 13:28:28
I think it was all there to see at Manchester United what Mourinho is now capable of.
His philosophy is dated.
The worrying thing is, he still doesn’t know his best 11. (If we have 11 good players)

That all being said, some of the players aren’t good enough. Winks, Ali, Dier all need to pack their bags.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 20:07:02
Add the dreadful Davies and lamela to that list too DR, I've dined out in London on lamelas name but want him out now.

5.) 15 Sep 2020 16:12:56
You know my thought's on Lamela raver.

I've never rated him from Day 1. Runs like a duck. Goes nowhere.

Ugly bast*** as well.

Ha ha.!

{Ed047's Note - love it 🤣🤣

M wheels, you are so right about the majority of lateral and own half passing that happens when we take to the field now. Very few positives to take from these latest performances under Jose. Whatever happened to the quick breaks from Son and Moura, the style that got us so far in the CL last season.

What sort of coach tells his players to break quickly into the oppositions half but then wait for them to get defensively organised. Sheer madness. Last night at one point it appeared we had 8 attacking players on the pitch but still could not co-ordinate a decent strike on goal.

Supposed poor refereeing decisions and even VAR going against us could be blamed for the players getting frustrated and it affecting their game but these are professional footballers whose mindset should be strong and positive as induced by the coaching staff. We have about 72 hours to get them mentally prepared for the derby game in an empty stadium. Let's get to it. COYS.

I agree NES, a clear penalty shout ignored and 4 or more in front of goal opportunities. I know Poch values squad rotation but come on, the prime aim is TO WIN THE GAME. Son is in form so why have him on the bench? I feel Sissoko and a few other players should be given 'the only' pep talk that is relevant "Shape up or ship out". This current level of inconsistency is what will get us middle of the table status if the players do not improve. Dier looked very mediocre last night (I know there were others) but don't you think that once players get an England cap (same with Walker) they think they have made it and there is no need for them to improve or play to a high standard week in week out. Poch needs to re-instill in the players a winning mentality that sees them play with confidence and then play our strongest team on the day.

There are two tactical and one mental issue (I'm sure there are more) I would like to highlight, which in my opinion are giving us problems. Firstly, the lack of width is giving us fewer options out of defence and going forward, making it too easy for the opposition to contain. Secondly, a high percentage of our midfield inter-passing is breaking down, leaving us very vulnerable to counter-attacking. Keeping players, not just designated players but anyone out there on the touch line, means the opposition have to cover, which creates more space down the channels and centrally for exploiting or not. This does not mean that we have to play with the equivalent of old fashioned wingers, just have players out there to play off. As for the inter-passing, this should improve as players in the team get to know each other's movement better, there have been signs of the 'triangles' working, however, this appears to breakdown more times than we would like and needs addressing.
The mental issue, where we seem to be unable to concentrate throughout a game will take a bit more effort to resolve. I agree with the previous posts regarding the lack of a natural leader in the team who can take charge when lapses in concentration happen. The quick second half goal scored by Newcastle is a prime example and whilst we all may lay the blame at the right back, even our 'trusted' International who is currently injured has been caught out of position before!
In closing I would just like to emphasis a prediction of mine from an earlier post. Harry Kane will be an England No.9.
Now back to the training ground. COYS.


{Ed001's Note - the mental issue could be down to fatigue. Poch trains his players much harder than most managers and that often leads to players being tired in the early days of his reign. As they get used to the extra training session that might well resolve itself.}

I thought Remy failed a medical for the Liverpool transfer, if that is true, why would we proceed?
