Haha were in super sh*t form.
Not too shabby considering the recent injury list.

Henderson, Milner and Jones are very dependable but all a bit the same. Liverpool rely on getting the ball to the front 3 and if they are not quite firing they struggle to score. But it's rare that that happens.

You’re making things up. Again.

Where did Leeds demand an apology?

Unless you count someone on the Big Footy forum PMSL.
Well since TopKent is moaning about those on BF and social media hand wringing about the original comments, can I not also use those sources to point out the hypocrisy of his and your position?

The club twitter account has a history of reacting to stuff in the media. It’s all a bit of fun.

Carney getting abused by knuckledraggers on social media is not on but it would have happened regardless of what the club account wrote unfortunately.

Do I agree with her opinion? No. I think Leeds easily get promoted with or without COVID.

But I feel like these types of posts are more fitting for a fan page rather than the official page.

What the hells your point SM ? Leeds club page making a funny retort isn't the same as a bunch of people abusing someone else later.

That's like saying if Klopp calls a ref performance poor and then Liverpool fans abuse that ref it's his fault. That's just stupid.

Yep, back to the hard to break down opposition defences because there is no creativity in midfield. All good and well holding the ball and passing sideways and backwards. But sooner or later you need to get creative and go forward. Playing a midfield of Henderson and Milner (and even Gini) isn't going to get you that. Especially when you have Thiago and Shaq sitting on the bench.

So many times you would see Mane and Firmino trying to create runs on the flanks to get in behind the defence, but they were ignored because a sideways or backwards pass is considered safer.

Being generous to Leeds social media and say that they didn’t think supporters would take their abuse down a sexist path, they’ve still sent out a tweet aimed at generating abuse at a pundit for saying something they didn’t like. They could’ve deleted the tweet if they actually had any issue with what was happening, instead the club owner doubles down by somehow claiming what Carney said was “disrespectful”.

The club and supporters showed themselves pretty thin skinned that a pundit giving an opinion, that can never be proven right or wrong, caused such an outrage. Obviously the club are very confident there won’t be any dip in results at the back end of this season

I really hope Leeds stick to their guns, stop letting the 0.3% of basement dwelling barnacles dictate what's right and wrong in the media.

Man or woman if you want to get paid for you opinion, then the target of your opinion deserves the right to come back. If people are unhappy with the losers who get abusive in the comments then turn off the comments.

There isn't a single video on YouTube or single ******* tweet that doesn't have some moron becoming abusive or sexist or political, that's not Leeds fault

Firmino was ignored so many times last night. Our midfield has been over worked and our most creative mids in Keita and Thiago havent been available. Get those two back in the side and I think we will be fine for scoring goals. Thiago completely changed it in about 15 minutes when he came on, he almost immediately played two amazing passes that created chances. Baller.

Still good yeah but that's poor form for us. We expect to win most games and we've won just 50% of our last 8. Our form is a bit poor at the minute for us.

We need more creativity in midfield and once we get Thiago and Keita back we should be fine. Jota too would help in rotating our front three.

Henderson a much much better passer than Keita

Henderson is probably better passer yes, but Keita the better dribbler and likes to take on players and drive at defenses and turn and create. Very different to Hendo, a midfield three of Henderson, Keita and Thiago will be boss.

Hendo must always play, he and Bob are our barometer.

It's not bad yeah lol, I don't think your guys problem is the midfield though, Klopps Liverpool is problem the least reliant on midfield of any good side in the world. They're more there to block space for the opposition counters almost.

If anything Mane, Firmino and Salah have been slightly off and TAA and Robbos delivery has dropped a little.

You are bloody obsessed with us and it’s hilarious.

TAA’s form has dipped this season and it’s shown how reliant we are on him for creativity.
Robertson is having a really good season.
