    Salah was amazing vs Man City. Both goals were fantastic runs. That second goal was world class. Goal of the year.

    I felt the same about the game. Disappointed in the tie after two leads. But could have been a loss. Milner should have been sent off.

    Imo, Milner just didn’t belong on the pitch Sunday. When he and Henderson are in the same 11 the offensive limitations are too much, imo. And that lack of threat allowed Man City to get comfortable.

    Not having Keita, Thiago, or Trent for that game hurt. Or Elliott, of course. Really need another starting caliber top tier midfielder. You know, like a wijnaldum lol.

    The polish kid they have been rumored to be on - Koslowski - is intriguing but probably too young to help this team. But really a de Bruyne type (obviously he’s the best in the world). Someone with some speed, ball control, passing and a shot would open things up for the front 3.

    Wonder if Bissouma is going to happen?

    This is pretty frustrating. Esp. Re Curtis Jones.

    There needs to be a better system both with respect to the schedule during Covid protocols and with respect to the treatment of players on the national teams vis-a-vis their clubs.

    Klopp is spot on with all this, imo.

    We are down 4 midfielders when including the Elliott injury- Elliott; Thiago; Fabinho; Curtis Jones.

    I would like to see Tsimikas or Neco Williams considered as a midfielder for the Watford game. They have more attacking prowess than any of the other potential starters (Milner, Keita, O-C, and Henderson). Williams played as an attacking midfielder before he can to Liverpool. Williams-Hendo-Keita would be something I’d like to see - given the others that are out. O-C is another but he just hasn’t flashed much of late. I’d reserve Milner for a second half sub if we are ahead.

    Well, as bad as the Dolphins season has been, at least there is Mo Salah.

    Not a player I like watching more than him.

    Obviously, Messi and Ronaldo have been the Gold Standard the past decade plus, perhaps of all time. Salah is just a notch below (though I think he is better at this point - in his prime as they appear to be past their prime).

    Mo Salah … the Egyptian King!

    Meant to post these a couple of weeks back. We went to Fado's Irish Pub in ATL to watch the Liverpool game with 100 or so Liverpool fans (part of the LFC ATL fan club). That photo is less than 1/2 of the fans that were there. First time to do that. Had a blast. And love a Full Irish (slightly bigger fan of the Full English).

    Wish I could do that every week!

    Nice. Revenge is sweet. But we still owe them. Simeone is quite a character.

    The call and commentary in this are gold. EPL announcers are the best. And Salah. What a magician. He is The Egyptian King!

    And there is a great piece at ESPN on why Liverpool really must sign Salah.

    Well.

    Mo Salah.

    Dolphins suck. Mo Salah doesn’t.

    Such a disappointing draw after being up 2-0. SMH. Defense looked slow and we played so passively on offense at times. Constantly passing around the back. Had some other chances that just did not go down. That offside on Salah … tough. Just a bit of delay or earlier pass.

    At least Man City lost, lol.

    really missing Fabinho in the midfield and just some depth there, I'm quite surprised how tired the whole team looked (well most of them) after not playing much (if at all) mid week. Of course Naby is down again (hamstring I believe). I've liked what I've seen from Norton in these Carabao Cup matches but I guess he's just too young to put into the rotation in the EPL (or UCL). Ox has been okay but he's best coming off the bench with that energy.

    Agree. They did look tired and Fabinho would have made a difference there. The whole midfield is ravaged with injuries. I think Konate got himself out of position a bit in that game as well.

    Fabinho back vs AM and what a difference. Hendo is much more involved in the final 3rd. Now Firmino is going to be out for an extended period with another hammy. Origi and Minamino will need to step up.

    Have to say this stretch of games for LFC has been very impressive. Perhaps their best in a couple of years (the WH game well behind them now), they look really balanced, seem to be getting healthy at the right time. Today's match vs the Saints was really total domination but it could have been very different had Alisson not saved those shots. he was counted on early and too often. Some sloppy giveaways contributed to that... although that was cleaned up as the game wore on. I think LFC's greatest weakness is depth (mostly on the front line now). Ox has really stepped in nicely the last couple of weeks, he might be in his best form as an LFC player. What a hit in the UCL by Thiago against Porto. Oh my goodness..

    Cant ever sell Origi. Ever. What a moment in this season if we go on to win the league. City are going to be difficult
