Hi Raggy

I agree with your comments. This was not a boring game !!! After Lucacu's first goal after only 3 minutes it was a game of 2 halves it was end to end with Huddersfield looking dangerous and had a couple o good chances that they did not take. Mouinho's plan was obviously to let Huddersfield come to them and hit them on the counter-attack. It worked well and in the second half after Lucacu's excellent second goal, assisted by a brilliant run and pass by Sanchez they were on top and stayed that way. Job Done.

Lots of time spent over Mata's "Goal" that turned out after 8.5 minutes being taken for VAR to decide. to have been offside. This must be improved.

As for Pogba, You are right he is not delivering. I think the latest issues are since Sanchez joined. Pogba is now not " top Boy" and doesn't like it. There is no doubt he his a great player but only on his terms. Alex Ferguson got rid of him because "of his attitude" and in the current situation if Fergie was there I have no doubt Pogba would be told to shut up and get on with it. Or he would be up the road. Fergie also had some problems with David Beckham and he sat him on the bench for several matches. He also cleared out Jap Stamm and Roy Keane two of his best players.

It will be interesting to watch how Mourinho deals with it. No Man is bigger than the team.

Lots not to be bored about Steve.....LoL

Lukaku's display yesterday against Huddersfield was superb, apart from his two goals he worked tirelessly for the team.

This, I believe, sets him apart from Pogba who I consider to be lazy, indolent and uninterested in the outcome of matches.

Mignolet's days are numbered. Karius has stepped up to the plate but Klopp wants to strengthen all aspects of the back end, if you take my meaning. Virgil is looking commanding but he isn't yet up to speed, either in terms of fitting the Klopp philosophy or getting over his spate of injuries, but I reckon he's going to be the darling of Anfield (one of!) As for Alisson, I don't think Liverpool need to be spending £70 million on a goalkeeper just now and I don't think Klopp does either. The trouble is that Roma felt stung by giving Salah to Liverpool for what turned out to be a bargain-basement price and they won't be inclined to repeat that exercise with Alisson.

Hi Steve

Congrats on fine win. Mo must be one of the best signings ever. This guy sniffs out chances and usually takes them. Also creates goals as well. He possesses that amazing change of pace - his speed off the mark makes it very difficult to stop him.

Sane had a great game too.

I watched the game and to be honest it was a one way game which takes away the interest. But Hey Liverpool can only play what is put against them.

Cheers

Hi Steve

I thought I might see you after yesterday.s games.

You are quite in order to be laughing ( as you no doubt you are.)

I watched both games and I have say that Liverpool
are looking very very much like a danger to us.

We were pathetic. There did not seem to be any organisation at all. This is unlike Mourinnho teams. The defence was all over the place - strange as we have the second best defensive record in the league.

The centre backs played as though they had never met; these guys are England Internationals though it is difficult to see how.

Especially Smalling who was lucky to get away with a penalty and then for some mad reason, he performs the most obvious dive I have ever seen. It was like a pig falling of a ladder. And to rub in the salt Newcastle scored from the resulting free kick.

Having said all that we managed to miss at least 4 " dollies" . The Newcastle keeper play out of his skin preventing us scoring. It was his first game !!!

Looks like being a rare fight for the top places. We can't play that bad again..........can we.

Regards

Mike

I know. The trouble is I think he wants to go to Juventus. And unless he does a deal with Liverpool he can go on a free transfer at the end of the season. If Juve don't have to pay for him they can use the money saved to pay him big money. He's playing hard to get. He must be on good money at Liverpool and he gets picked regularly so you might have thought he'd be happy. I reckon it's about money, not football. Sign of the times.

Hi Steve

Just finished watching Spurs v Arsenal. Quite a good open game to watch. I think Spurs just about deserved their 1-0 win. Like you I wanted a draw and if Lacasette (sic) hadn't missed a complete sitter right at the end.

Harry Kane scored his usual goal and Spurs created several more chances.

Arsenal looked wide open a the back and in my opinion were lucky to get away so lightly.

I will be watching City later on. Leicester are a team that could cause a surprise. (fingers crossed ).

I watch on BT Sport and Sky Sport on my TV.

My son has given me a dongle that streams life sports, but I haven't needed to use it yet. In truth I have my doubts about it.

I will be watching Both United and Liverpool tomorrow.

Just watching Ireland massacre Italy......I know there is a separate thread but I want to get something done and don't have the time

Hi Steve

" Those were the days my friend ............."

Jackie Charlton and Norman Hunter.....we had nNobbie Stiles.

I play in a Sunday League ( after playing Rugby On the Saturday.)

I had been kicked on the knee and had a couple of stitches in a cut.
Before the game Nobbie came to watch. He saw my bandaged knee. He told me not to wear the bandage over the wound but to put it on the other leg !!! Said the buggers will go for that one and leave the other alone. Worked too.

Liverpool's Tommy Smith was a great player " with a cutting edge".

There were many "kickers " in those days,

Yes Chelsea seem to be on an cliff-hanging edge. Will they go.....I hope so. Sure you will too.

Nah then, Mike, surely you remember one of the great moments in all footie, the punch-up between Franny and Bite-Yer-Legs. Those were the days when men were men and so were half the women. We're in prima donna territory these days. When you dived in those days on those pitches you'd go in at half-time with five pounds of mud sticking to your front and another pound wrapped round the family jewels. I admit that Liverpool had the diver among divers, bite-yer-ear-off Suarez (come back, Luis, all is forgiven!), and Stevie wasn't exactly Mr Innocent. I agree. Send the bugger off, as long as you're sure. Alli was blatant, Kane not quite 100%. Red, yellow. The draw was the ultimate fair result, but who wants fair in footie!

Hi Steve

I agree that Lamela was looking for a penalty. But Virgil has been around long enough to spot this. I recorded the game and have viewed the incident in very slow motion. IMHO there is no doubt that he touched Lamela but I don't know what kind of touch makes the difference between being a penalty or not. Most players know about this and try to avoid any kind of contact in the area.

An example of the confusion is shown if you look at United's game against Huddersfield when a young player was completely flattened as he was charged by a defender the back in the area. He was felled by a two footed charge off the ground; This wasn't so much of tackle as an assault. No penalty was given. It strikes me that even the the referees don't know.

As for diving, it is cheating and the refs must get a grip of it. It is rife; most players do it.

It was never done before the European Leagues. These brought players of many different nationalities, many of whom were divers.

I can only recall one British player who dived - that was Franni Lee of Man City.

I think that diving should be an immediate red card not just a yellow and a kind word from the ref.

Cheers

Mike

Have had another look/think about that second penalty in the cold light of YouTube. It shouldn't have been given. Lamela was fishing for it, running into Virgil's path. If there was any contact at all it was minimal and Virgil was trying to avoid it, and Lamela made a meal of it. Seems like Pochettino may have a second career as an Olympic diving coach, what with Kane, Alli and Lamela. No wonder he praised the officials for making perfect decisions. Jon Moss was very soft on Spurs in the first half too. His behaviour seemed quite unprofessional. And he didn't seem to understand the offside rule either.

I agree with your view of the game. Great to watch. In the end a draw was a fair result even though how it happened was contraversial.

I have put Clopp down on the 100 meters in the next Olympics. He didn't half move down that touchline when Liverpool scored their second.

My forecast of the score was dead on.   !!!

Talk about a game of two halves. Just for once the cliche applies. Kane missing that first penalty was poetic justice. He dived. The second one was justified. It was all Liverpool in the first half. They were deadly except for the finish. But they went home at half-time. I do like Spurs though and I can't complain at honours even! Three cracking goals and a lot of edge-of-seat stuff. Great!

Hi Steve

"A routine, boring win for United". I don't believe it was Man U's fault. And it wasn't boring for most of the crowd.

I don't think that there were any buses left in Huddersfield......they were all parked on the Huddersfield goal line.

It takes two teams to make a good game. Huddersfield did not want to play. Instead they decided to kick United's players all over the pitch....especially Sanchez. He was a marked man.....literally. They didn't have even one attempt on goal. If they continue to play like this they will go down.

The Ref had a poor game in allowing this to go unpunished.Especially one vicious foul on a young lad....and in the penalty area too.


Good luck for this afternoon, I will be watching,

THIS SHOULD BE A GREAT GAME.

A routine, boring win for United. But the brave lads of Burnley, the archetypal hairy-arses, the team of me boyhood, never gave up against City. I thought Pep's tribute was wonderful:

Pep Guardiola has described Burnley as "the most British of teams" following the Clarets' 1-1 draw with Manchester City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

"Of course we are frustrated in terms of the result but the performance was outstanding against a Burnley side who are the most British of teams in terms of long balls and the way they play," Guardiola told Sky Sports News.

"But football is about goals. We needed to score the second, third and fourth when we had the chance. When you arrive in the last 15 minutes at Burnley 1-0, this is what can happen. I'm sad for the players because we played so well.

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is amazing. We controlled the game, but when we arrived in the last minutes at 1-0, there is danger."

Hi Steve

I think it will be a wide open game and great to watch. I fancy a draw 2-2 I don't think Kane will miss chances like he did.

We didn't park the bus, more like a motor bike. We did create some chances but did take them. I think the second goal killed us. They were disorganised and lacking drive and initiative.

Good luck I will be watching.

Hi Steve

Saw the Liverpool v Huddersfield game. Not a classic but " The Pool" got a deserved win. Huddersfield IMHO were very poor but you have to beat what-ever is against you.

I hope Huddersfield play as badly on Saturday when they play Man United. Mind you after last night's performance against Spurs United got blown away. I have not seen such a poor performance by United since Moyes went. We were lucky to get none.!!! Our defence that had gone for over six hours without conceding a goal and then we let one in after only 10 seconds!! Our performance was erratic and Spurs could and should have scored five or six." 'arry Kane "didn't have his shooting boots on.

There was a small consolation in that Chelsea got blasted 3-0 at home.
It's going to be interesting in the top six.

Liverpool did the same thing last season, though a couple of weeks earlier. It'll be a test of Klopp's mettle to get this quickly turned around. Giving Huddersfield a whack isn't a bad start. Good to see Liverpool increasing the distance from Arsenal. Swansea are becoming giant-killers!

Dunno whether refs add time on for these lengthy delays due to reviewing decisions. It stops the flow of what should be a flowing game, I know that much.

Hi

just going to sit down and watch Liverpool v Huddersfield.

Huddersfield are a difficult team to play.....as Man United found out some weeks ago when they beat us at Huddersfield.

Their Manager is an ex colleague and friend of Liverpool Manager Jurgen Clopp.

I will be interested in this game because we play Huddersfield shortly in the League, and we could also play them again if the beat Birmingham
in the replay of the recent draw.

Of course this will not be of any interest to Steve as they are no longer in this Competition.

I see Clopp is starting to moan about referees - he complained about how much ( little) the ref awarded for injury time in their recent game.

Of course we at Old Trafford are "experts" at this thanks to Alec Ferguson.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Steve - watched Liverpool v West Brom last night.
Liverpool were very poor IMHO - especially the defence.
These games are always tricky for the top teams. As the opponents have nothing to lose. Some strange decisions especially when the use of the new filmed action was used.

Both managers criticised it.   

Man United managed to win at a canter at Yeovil. Sanchez looked good in his first game. I am expecting something more from United when he plays with the full team - we had 10 changes from the usual side.

A consolation for Liverpool will be that they will able to concentrate more on their League position.

Cheers

Mike

Hi

Arsenal won 2-1 in a very closely contested game.

Arsenal will now meet Manchester City a Wembley.

Chelsea manager Conte complaining bitterly about how Chelsea can't contest top teams because they can't buy top players.

He wasn't complaining previously when Chelsea out price every team in tha Premier League.

Cheers
