    Played very good football outside that first 5 minute. Really there they were lulled into a trap by Chelsea after keeping the ball the first 2 minutes... Chelsea won the ball, pushed and scored...then nearly again.

    Team is certainly different with Klopp. But more organized in the press and more confident in defending.

    Chelsea set up was surprising, and maybe NJ can add a bit more. They sat way off Liverpool (not afraid of the attacking options, I get that) and played the counter. Got them a good start, but I felt like they let Liverpool get comfortable again instead of going at them. Played almost like they were the away team.

    Interesting few weeks ahead for both clubs.

    And no denying Arsenal at the moment.

    honestly...I have no idea what is going on. I am besides myself in trying to explain it. Looks like Roman is going to stick with Jose, which is right move, but it will be interesting to see what happens if we continue to lose. We are so close to relegation zone already! lol...what a fall.

  • I watched the Stoke game alot more objectively than I did the Liverpool game. A few things that stood out..

    Chelsea are slow, especially in the back. Their midfield doesn't do a good job protecting that back line and I think teams are now more comfortable either pressing high or sitting back and taking chances on the counter. Unlike years past, where Joses teams could grind you down and put you into 1-2 game holes while sitting in on their own, opponents are producing with either limited numbers (Stoke) or that high press (Liverpool) and not as concerned with the response.

    I think you have a few important players off form as well. Matic, Oscar, Fabregas, Hazard (although he was strong against Stoke) and even Costa all look shells of the players they were last season.

    They'll snap out of it, but I think January will be a window they have to be active in.. just to change the attitude.

    Amazing performance by the redmen though. City had no chance against FirCouts.



    Great performance indeed... City is hard to get a read on.. been battered twice by hard working high press teams.

    just thinking that maybe their really isn't any outstanding teams in the EPL this year.

  • Congrats?(!!!)

    Not a convincing performance though was it? I only read about it. Lots of work but I imagine they will be in the top 8-10 by Christmas. Getting over that will be difficult. What needs to change? Lineup? Tactics? Staff?

    Liverpool, on the other hand, have now played away to Stoke, Spurs, Everton, City, Arsenal, United and Chelsea.. and came away with 12 points from that. Quite a daunting fixture list. They are somehow better on the road against that run down then at Anfield against the likes of Palace, West Ham and Norwich.

    So hard to say... they can score, for sure. and look fun doing it. but have conceded quite a bit.

    Their next 6 fixtures will set on if they are the real deal:

    vs. United
    at Swansea
    vs. Chelsea
    at Everton
    at Liverpool
    vs. City

    Spurs look capable of a top 4 spot though. Playing with confidence and a whole lot of energy. Kane is now a 2 season wonder i guess...

    I haven't managed to watch as much Spurs as I would like this season but I have generally liked what I've seen. Dele Alli and Eric Dier have done wonders for our midfield and when I went to the Liverpool game at Lane Mousa Dembele was outstanding. It's a fairly young team so if we can't do it this season there's a good base to build upon.

    That Leicester run looks pretty tough, eh.

    Si, quite the murderer's row...Pool looks legit though, man...Coutinho and the other kid...what's his name? Portuguese? Brazilian? working well together...they could have more scores on that...just making Hart look silly.

    It wasn't a convincing result at all...but I will take it. I say tactics, the players have got to want it, and hopefully be in form. Time will tell.

  • The league is better when Chelsea are menacing. As fun as it has been watching them struggle, it would be nice to see them start beating some teams again. I can't hate them right now...

    Deli Alli is going to be a very good player in the Prem for some time. I can see him getting regular full English call ups and possibly being added to the Euro squad.

    Liverpool and Spurs are setting records for outrunning their opponents. Ridiculous amounts of energy expended against their opponents. But that's where Liverpool have struggled.. when the other team isn't in a position to be pressed. Palace, West Ham, Norwich, even Everton all sat back on them. They couldn't press high so couldn't transition. This is where Spurs are a bit stronger... Kane solves that problem for them.

    Thoughts on standings heading into the New Years? I think we will see atleast 2 of the current top 6 drop out by then

  • peachesenregalia wrote:I'm hoping Liverpool can string a wee run together here. With Studge and Benteke coming back into the team, we should have a lot more options against teams that want to sit back and invite us forward. Hoping to see us hovering around the top 4, if not in it by the time the dust settles after the new years Day games. Spurs are legitimately fun to watch this season. Hope they can continue that form.

    I expect that Leicester will start to fall away as the talent deficit plays it's part. There have been many teams in the past just like them - Hull, Ipswich, Charlton Athletic to name a few that I can rememeber off the top of my head. United still don't convince me. Hard to get a read on them because just like last year - their best player is between the uprights keeping them in games. Arsenal are just so inconsistent once again this season. Anybody's league at this point, seriously.



    anyone but Man Ure. Please.

  • As opposed to Leicester's next 6, Liverpool get an easier set:

    vs. Swansea
    @ Newcastle
    vs. West Brom
    @ Watford
    vs. Leicester
    @Sunderland
    @ West Ham...(that's 7)

    If they are going to make a run... this would be the glut of games to go after points. They host Arsenal and United back to back after. Those matches could be positioning for top 4... or just Liverpool trying to scrape credibility and a Europa spot.

    Spurs have a nice little set coming up as well, starting with Chelsea at the Lane this weekend. Both Spurs and Liverpool could be top 4 by New Years.

    Anyways... i'm thoroughly enjoying this season so far. Didn't watch nearly as much football last year. There is so much going on in the early going that the drama has been fairly intriguing.

    He may come across as an oddball but he's an incredibly meticulous coach and won't accept passengers

    Agree, I rate McLaren as a manager. Ashley has a decision to make - trust the players znd bring in another $h!t manager, or put his faith in McLaren and have a clear-out. Newcastle are still a massive club in my eyes, no reason they should be scrounging around like they are.

    All of that being said, Palace are really playing well, they've been a formidable PL team for a while now, credit to them.


    I kinda disagree about McLaren, I think he is a top class coach, many have said that but I don't think he's a good manager. If you remember he had what was the golden generation of English football and he couldn't even get them qualified for the Euros.

    As for Palace they are playing some good stuff but still a bit hit and miss. Connor Wickham had a strong game yesterday but I still feel they need a younger CB to partner Scott Dann and possibly a GK as none we have are the greatest albeit they are decent.
    Most underrated player at Palace is Pape Souare the LB, quick, strong and is probably the best crosser of the ball at the club.

    Phil Neville as assistant.

    The mind boggles... Valencia have a solid lineup and CL football. I actually like Gary and wish him well, even if he is a Manc. Will miss him and Carra doing MNF though.

    Oh no doubt. A convincing win over Newcastle tomorrow and we're bang in the title race. United have forgotten how to score, City can't string two wins together, Arsenal are inconsistent, and Leicester are one or two injuries away from mid-table obscurity. We've a run of six winnable game over this busy period, anything less than 15 points from those is a disappointment.


    well... just not a season to get your hopes up... for anyone..

    Ruined my morning...

    Klopp learned a lesson about his squad today.. he needs the high energy players to start the match. Bring Benteke on later.. like Chelsea.

    A midfield of Allen, Lucas and Milner will always struggle to match the pace of a high pressing team (even if it was meant to be "softer" today). Lallana and Studge should have started.

  • Agreed... and Ibe was especially frustrating given how often he was able to carry the ball into the attacking 3rd, only to give it away without much help from the defense.

    Moreno's goal should have stood as well

  • Sturridge out again...

    I'm hoping Klopp is willing to dip into the transfer market in January. I like Origi, not sold that Benteke is a viable starter for the club. Good off the bench when a change in philosophy is needed.

    Could use 1-2 more mids as well.. but going in on some viable starters at CM and striker has to be a priority, and I'm hoping in January.

  • Subotic (sorry, not Hummels) to Liverpool, as a replacement to Kolo, in the summer seems to be gaining steam. Not sure what he's got left. not playing for Dortmund at the moment. Some Neves kid from Porto is also supposedly on Klopps wishlist. Maybe Gundogan as well?

    I guess the question will be whether they want to make a real go at top 4 by using the Jan window or sit with what they have, let Klopp evaluate his players before the Summer and maybe get top 4 through attrition.

    Top 4 is certainly there for the taking...

  • It's great watching the Premier League when you don't live in England, eh. I just paid $99 NZD for every game, live or archived, for the rest of the season. Fantastic! I can start watching Spurs again.

    On the downside, the Seahawks have moved from 6pm/930 pm on Sunday evening, which was pretty much perfect to 7am/1030am on Monday morning. I'll be having the steer clear of the Internet all day Mondays I guess.

    On the downside, the Seahawks have moved from 6pm/930 pm on Sunday evening, which was pretty much perfect to 7am/1030am on Monday morning. I'll be having the steer clear of the Internet all day Mondays I guess.



    Do you get NBC Live?

    Spurs look a genuine threat for top 4 this year. Not winning games as much as maybe they should, but not dropping points either.

    We get Premier League Pass which is pretty much the same as the NFL Gamepass we get outside the US: an Internet subscription service with all games available to stream live or on demand. I've found it really hard to watch premier league games on a saturday/Sunday afternoon in the UK as I've been relying on being in a pub or live streams and we're usually pretty busy with other stuff on the weekend so being able to watch on demand early on a sunday morning is fantastic. No more hooky streams!

    The situation at spurs is good. Pochettino is doing what he did at Southampton and some of the guys he's bringing through are proper quality. It's a young bunch too, with some acadamy products doing well which is really good to see.

  • I pay the equivalent of $150 a month for Sky Sports in the UK so I can watch Premier League - it's not been value for money these last two years as a United supporter!

    At least I get 5 NFL games each week on the same package

    Except for the Arsenal part... Their last three weeks have been so very Arsenal... Struggle, contemplate end of Wenger, injuries, scrape a result, salvage Final 16 with world class performance, surge to top of table before Christmas...

    Set a watch by it if you wanted

    Weird that we may stop rooting Against Leicester soon

    Honestly.. I watched yesterday as I hadn't seen much of Leicester and was fully expecting it to see a Chelsea reborn..

    on the contrary. Leicester play direct, confident football and are decently organized in the back. Chelsea look devoid of ideas. The star players seem to lack direction or cooperation and end up losing the ball easily. I don't see anything that resembles implementation of a plan. Its jarring...

  • "One possibility is that I did an amazing job last season and brought the players to a level that is not their level and now they can't maintain it,"

    I guess we will see...

    Jose out. To be replaced by Juandre Ramos.... I'm not sure he helps anything to be honest

    Ramos is a stop-gap. They'll go hard after Pep, who's said he'll leave Bayern at season's end.



    I see Pep at City, if he comes to the PL. Team is already more geared for what he wants to do on the field. Chelsea is not. I also don't know if Pep wants to spend even one season out of the CL. I could see someone like Simeone, however.

    I wonder if Ramos can actually do enough to even keep Chelsea out of the bottom 15. He's had his troubles as well.

  • Jose has gone.

    Unless Pep comes in the Summer, I reckon in two year's time they will look back and realise they made a mistake.
