We need to sign up the Silky Lee lad or whatever his name was. Properly tortured us today. Great prospect.

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


Can you imagine fielding that central midfield and defence against The Shite 😳

Front 3 of Mane, Shergar and Salah would at least each get a hattrick against us and todays performance. I need beer.

Na not for me thought Schneiderlin / Gueye tried to go forward especially in the second half as much as they could. Trouble was the ball hardly stuck, Tosun was pretty anonymous imo. When Gueye went off, was it 2 or 3-1 down, we were wide open. As I said our centre of defence was no where to be seen.

Oh yes, I agree that Tosun’s movement was non-existent, and that Gueye is a superb mopper upper, but even so, they don’t possess enough quality to make an impression on most football matches

Centre midfield is a big problem for us both defensively and offensively, in fact a pairing 3 Schneiderlin, Gana and Sigurdsson don’t really have a redeeming feature as a grouping.

To be fair, they're getting way above their stations from what I've read online.

Didn't watch the game and please don't take this as gloating as we all want the same, but you could see this a mile off. I was worried from the get go that we were in shit and i have been accused of worrying and unnecessary panicking, but this is a massive few days for us and unless we spend some massive wedge we're in it....

Yep. Painfully highlighted in transition when our midfield can’t cover the ground to breakup attacks. Also, the main reason we can’t maintain possession, especially in the opposition half. If you can’t keep the ball and constantly lose it, you’re going to put the defence under pressure.

A solid center back pairing and the scoreline wouldn't have been that. Not to mention we scored a perfectly good goal that was disallowed. We need a center defence asap though. Get that sorted and we have a foundation to work from. Jags and Keane both let the side down today.

They’re full of optimism. Must be a nice feeling to have about your team.

Just so one paced, unimaginative and lacking in tough defensive awareness. Like I said not a redeeming feature amount them and considering their ages there’s no potential for improvement either.

We’ll get cut through by a lot of teams with them 3 and then it’s onto a very slow and ponderous back line in reverse gear.

We're all at least a little bit worried now, no?
Worried there’s been no tangible benefit since bringing in a new manager. I wasn’t expecting an immediate upturn in quality of performances but I thought we’d at least adopt Silva’s approach - and we’d add quality to the squad, in time. What’s worrying is we look utterly shambolic. Like, proper ‘Koeman’ shambolic.

Hopefully,  but it isn't long before the season starts. Worrying when its less than 2 weeks away and you've only got 1of the back 4 you need
