Liverpool v Man Utd

Recommended Posts

Liverpool are some team! All over Man Utd and should be 2-0 up but for VaR.........

Such a huge disappointment that City couldn’t get past the Shrews............:dunno:

What a joy it would have been to see the mighty Reds at AG........

VAR's the only thing keeping Man U in this game. Not even close to a foul on DdG, and with the pre-VAR back foot rule Mane was on by a yard.

No horse in the race, but it’s the type of foul you get given now 99% of the time on the goalie. Both have challenged for the ball, but the Liverpool player only made contact with the goalie.  Was pretty sure the ref was going to blow for it, but as the ball then went to a Utd player with no one within five yards of him decided to play on. The fact that he has then made a pigs ear of it seems an odd use of VAR.

Have to disagree BB . That’s the worse Man United side I’ve watched. And for a club of Man Uniteds stature. They have a terrible side

I’ve always liked Liverpool going back to the days of Ray Kennedy..........probably before your time.

If that’s a foul on the keeper by VVD then the game is dead. Ref 100% correct, VAR wrong yet again.

Are they as pleasing on the eye as Arsenal (in their pomp) or Man City at their ethereal best ?

IMHO I think not .

Liverpool are quite direct as it goes, not in an Old School Wimbledon way, but they hit plenty of long balls/passes call it what you like and they are very good at it.....

The Arsenal invincibles under Wenger with the likes of Vieira, Parlour, Adams, Dixon, Henry were the best PL footballing side of them all.

Liverpool aren’t quite as impressive but currently a very close second.

Proof positive that they want to take physical contact out of the game. 

DdG got his positioning wrong and VvD got to the drop of the ball quicker and better.

Ive mentioned this before on here, but I remember Alan Hansen I think it was, talking about when he joined Liverpool back in the day.

A day or so after joining. he was watching a practice match standing along side Bob Paisley and from watching the game, commented to Paisley that he hadn't realised that Liverpool were a long ball. team.

Paisley replied " we don't play long ball, we play the right ball"

This Liverpool team is very adept at stretching opposition defences and with their front 3 on the end of them,  the right ball opens defences up .

Results wise I’d agree

Footballing style wise they’re a bit like chelsea under mourinho, excellent at getting results and they play seriously apeffective football. But they aren’t as brilliant and free flowing as Man City are

I was under the impression that you had no interest in ‘other’ teams, I’m sure it was on the OS.

Liverpool were wasteful today which was lucky for United. Was like a PL team against a L2 team in the cup.

I used to like Carragher but lately hes really pissing me off. Not good enough to win a league title himself but recently he has been very smug and condescending. He said after the game today "that was the best result United could have hoped for today" Man City need to get their act together again next season to shut people like him up.

Even if Man City win every game for the rest of the season Liverpool don't even need 2 points per game anymore

Did anyone actually think United would get a result?

Think, expect, no. But was it possible? Of course it was, especially in a derbyish type game. They had previously got a result against them so it wasnt out of the question and I just found Carraghers comments that the best United could have hoped for was a 2nil defeat a bit out of order. He needs to remember when United were winning everything, he was in many Liverpool sides that were much much poorer than this current United side.

With just a one goal lead any team is vulnerable. An error or poor refereeing decision can led to conceding a goal and that could have happened at Anfield. Fortunately Salah’s late strike sealed the win.

So even if the points difference remains the same, Liverpool will win the title with 5 games to spare. Is that right?

Yeah, Liverpool won't let up though the earlier they win the title the more changes they can make at the back end of the season if they're still in the champions league

I suppose they’ll be in a position to field a ‘weaker’ team against a team in say 5th or 6th that may still be in with a shout of claiming 4th place ahead of teams like Man Utd, Spurs, Arsenal etc.

If they wanted to of course.
