Could Have been Worse #2

Chelsea away in the League Cup would have been worse but Chelsea at home isn’t as bad as it could have been. Tie of the round etc and a deffo for Sky surely? We play them again a few days later at their hovel – which would we prefer to win? Both says I.

Could Have Been Worse #1

PSG; Napoli; Red Star Belgrade: Our European opponents for 2018. Let’s be honest, could have been worse, not much but worse. PSG are the Manchester City of France, Napoli is probably the most hostile place to go in Italy and Red Star have a history. PSG might be slightly worried, Napoli will be gnashing teeth and Red Star thinking there’s some money in it for them.

Liverpool 1 Brighton 0

Not quite the landslide some were predicting but three points all the same. It wasn’t good, not all of it anyway but a clean sheet and a juggling act as well.

Crystal Palace 0 Liverpool 2

Mo Salah didn’t score but he was games biggest talking point after being fouled by Sakho and us getting a penalty and then being professionally fouled and Palace getting a player sent off. At the end of the night we won 2-0, tough away game negotiated.  Hodgson and the Palace can moan for as long as they want. This was a game in which we needed to show something and we did. End of story.

Mo Salah

There’s been far too much coverage especially on Social Media about Mo using his phone whilst driving. We know it’s against the law so why don’t they just let the law deal with it? As far as Mo not signing autographs when he’s with his family why should he. There’s a time when you’re on duty and a time when you’re not.

Liverpool 4 West Ham 0

As far as first games go, this wasn’t a bad start. West Ham aren’t a bad side but they were never really in this game and the scoreline didn’t flatter us. Good start from Keïta and Alisson wasn’t overstretched. However, Milner stood out and not just because of his headband.  All in all, just about the perfect performance.

Liverpool 3 Torino 1

The final workout and a decent show for those who went. There were a few iffy moments at the back but things can be sorted. Credit the club for the continued efforts to interact with the support; things like that can go a long way.
