We finally got a win that is convincing. Good moral for the boys to build on.
+1
it is a good win morally,
now we need to translate it into consistency
+1
Well anything to help our front three click finally, and seven goals againts any European opponent is wonderful
Great win!
One question after this remains on my mind...

Hendo. Yes or No?

I know a weak side and all of this, but is it time to try to rotate the him with Milner here and there? Or do we stuck with him until Keyta arrival.

I mean i can not really say he proves to be a real captain in my eyes and all of the sideways and backwards passing kind of kills the fluency and potential of attacking players.

I know he works really hard and has the long ball / switch play abilitily, but is it really needed in this high tempo pressing game?

Makes me think he is not working in the team anymore.
Henderson earned his spot and the capts armband , however if we want to challenge for titles and cups , he just wont cut it as he is .. he needs to step his game up or reinvent himself ... rotating him with milner might not be such a bad idea
+1
Henderson can perform as one of the best midfielders in EPL on a good day. He can also perform as the worst midfielder in EPL on his bad days.

Hendo needs consistency, we can't have that hit or miss performance.
+1
Plays good when teams play with a high line, but when they sit deep.. His passing range is useless and just reverts to playing it side ways alot. Tbh his alot more faster then can is on the ball but is alot less direct and less brave too.
+2
People say he passes backwards and sideways a lot but that is what the position does. That position is there to keep possession, win the ball back and build the attack. Hendo is good at keeping/winning possession and has a great range of passing. I agree with Sergio that when teams wit deep he is not effective, but I think that is just a problem with tactics. When Hendo does make runs behind he can be more effective attack-wise. The thing is, when the teams sit deep no one is really effective, because that is what sitting deep and defending does. It defends well.
Yeah it's not really his fault, his doing what he is meant to be doing. Againts teams that sit deep it would make sence to play 4-2-3-1 but what do I know
well you can't question Hendo's work-rate, desire or his commitment to the team but in terms of on the ball quality he is definitely lacking. he's mostly always looking to play the safe sideways pass and I rarely ever see an incisive ball down the middle or a venture forwards. now I understand that his position as a deeper lying midfielder means he has to do these basic things most of the time but moving into the future, I don't think he has the overall quality to be integral to the team. I think the arrival of Naby Keita next season will definitely shake things up
+1
I think it's disingenuous to say he rarely plays an incisive ball down the middle. He does play balls up through the middle, he also plays a lot of balls in every other direction including long over the top balls. I think people just don't really notice some of his forward passes as much since he is playing so deep that most of the time it doesn't amount to anything. I would also like to see him improve and get Keita or someone else to challenge/improve on the position, but I feel Hendo gets a lot of unfair criticism.
+1
yesterday i dream i am klopp.. and held a meeting to inform everyone about new contract extension transparently...

no contract extension for henderson and sturridge
+1
Henderson isn't a bad player but whoever becomes captain of this club will be compared to the living legends that wore it before ie Carra and Stevie. Henderson needs consistency and honestly personally I wouldn't be upset if someone else got the captaincy.
also there's a lot of whining about klopp over at one particular forum. kinda dig it.
(i'll keep it nameless to protect the identity of the forum as a whole).
+1
I wanted to add couple of points to the whole discussion of Mourinho killing the game.

I do not want to whine about Mou's tactics and I hate him as much as any Liverpool fan, But Mourinho does add stability to the defense, there are couple of argument that goes along with it such as he has a track record of spending money, he sits back against attacking team especially away from home. But if we can add that flavor to our team we may as well come close to competing with likes of city ,united or chelsea.

Yes it may be boring but attractive football will not always win you titles. Overall philosophy may remain the same of high pressing and attractive attacking football but when we need to grind out the results during pivotal moments Mou's tactics can come in handy.

Thats why just adding VVD to our squad is not going to eradicate our defensive frailties completely, yes it certainly will cut down individual errors but as a unit we should know how to defend, conceptually we are trying to add brilliant individual defender to an exclusively attacking side. Hence I had called out for a coach with defensive nous to be added to the current backroom staff, couple of weeks ago(this point may be debatable). So that overall brand of football remains the same with solidity at the back.

What I want to conclude is whatever his style of play, coming may if he is lifting a trophy nobody is going to remember this game apart from us lot, all he wanted was a point and he got it. Roll the clock back to 13/14 season, that chelsea game if we would have got a point, scenario would have been different for the Palace game.
+7
Romelu Lukaku will probably be switched to a CB under Mourinho soon
+8
Lmao

I found the said forum and checked out the said comments about Klopp and also chipped in my 2 cents worth ;)

Anyone who needs salt to season their breakfast\lunch\dinner can get some from the united page.

It's boring for sure but I don't see what's wrong with it specially viewing it from a tactical perspective.

Teams that win competitions usually have a good defensive record. Attack does not win you titles, the defense does.

If the best attacking team guaranteed the title, then LFC should have won under Rodgers.
I'd like to add, Atletico Madrid was the best defensive team in Europe for a while. Specially when we won La Liga and reached 2 CL finals against all the odds.

Atletico never was the best attacking team, but what Diego Simeone did well was defend.

Everything starts at the defense. If you don't get that organized, a team will never launch a successful attack.
United and Mourinho get a lot of stick for certain tactics, especially certain games, which is deserved to a point. But you can't deny that defense is important and a well balanced team is ideal. When Benitez was our coach he definitely emphasized defensive importance and was a major reason for his success (it did help to have Torres and company as well). I agree that adding a defender won't solve all our defensive woes and that a change tactically and more training mentally/discipline is needed to really turn things around with our defense.
+1
it was only a matter of time before someone bore the brunt of the team's collective frustration. hope this trend continues!!

great to see firmino get back on the score sheet, ox get on and TAA get his champions league goal!! good tune-up match, now work on that defense!!
+3
That should give the much needed confidence in front of the goal..just hoping we've turned the corner..
+3
Credit to Maribor for having more shots than Manchester United did on Saturday in the first-half alone

Found that on twitter lol
+10
lol they were definitely braver if not anything else, than that cowardly performance we saw from mou last weekend
+5
We got a point mate.
English teams all top their respective groups. Would be interesting if it ended that way. Would also be hilarious if United got 2nd or somehow didn't go through lol
+4
We are not liverpool.
+1
oooooooOOOOoo shots fired by kbrom!! lololol
+2
Sick burn bro.
+1
I know
I know you know
+1
wow dude you should be a comedian, so funny.
Lol what is this
+1
Sergio, you know.
+1
Thank you. I get that quite often
Just what you needed. Clean sheet and a thumping score.

I look forward to the game on Sunday, at least we'll actually play football with you unlike your last PL opponents!
+11
Should be a cracker! Not expecting a goalless draw that's for sure.
+6
I know we just won 7-0 but Spartak just beat Sevilla comfortably so I think this group is going to come down to the wire and that doesn't make comfortable... knowing what we're capable of lol
+1
Next game is crucial I guess. A win for us and either of Spartak or Sevilla beating each other will open the group for us.
+1
LOL sevilla got battered
