Crystal Palace 1 Liverpool 2

bThis had all the signs of being one of those days especially when Palace went ahead from the spot. Karius was clumsy but by the time he’d made contact with Zaha the ball was already in the crowd! Mane should have gone down straight away instead of waiting about five seconds before jumping to the ground but we can forgave him when he scored after halftime.  His head can’t have been right when he picked the ball up thinking he’d been fouled but thankfully the ref decided on leniency. Disappointing when Lallana went off just after coming on but it might have been the turning point because Lovren was better in the air than Matip and the Selhurst bomb threat subsided.  In times of need there is always Mo Salah and even though he didn’t have the best of games, but then again, who did, it was down to him to win it for us. There was a time not so long ago when we’d have succumbed in a game like this but not for the first time this season, we dug in and dug out a win.

Liverpool 5 Watford 0

It’s hard to add anything to what has been said almost since the final whistle blew. Maybe you just had to be there? I’m glad I was.  They don’t have to write headlines about Mo Salah, he writes them himself. We are honoured and privileged to be watching such a talent.

Manchester United 2 Liverpool 1

Hard to take no matter what.  Don’t often do well at the worst ground in the land and we didn’t do well again in this game. Might have had a penalty, might have had two, could have had three but referees are reluctant to give too much to the visitors at OT. He still sits in the Stands casting an evil eye on the man with the whistle.

Liverpool 0 Porto 0

A nil-nil nobody seemed fussed about. More akin to a training session and that’s about it. In the draw for the last eight with the minimum of fuss.  Good new Euro song rang out as well.

Liverpool 2 Newcastle 0

On a day when Brass Monkey’s would have definitely stayed at home the Redmen didn’t have to go into second gear to beat a poor Newcastle side who had some odd support.  They kept singing about being on the dole and stealing stereo’s but if that’s what they do in their private lives it’s up to them.

Liverpool 4 West Ham 1

Excellent performance and a 4-1 win could well have been double that. Nice West Ham tribute to the late and great Bobby Moore and I’m sure he’d have been impressed by this Liverpool showing.
