I'd get the wide players to swap wings for 5 minutes.

Some of these Liverpool players are wasting more time than Xhaka did in the Leeds game.

:laughing7: he stomped on the blokes instep ... got nothing of the ball .... if van Dyk had done that to Saka you would have been screaming for a yellow

The point I’m making is not that he got the yellow but I see players get away with those tackles that are attempts at blocking the ball and the foot comes down on the opponents foot. It wasn’t like the Xhaka one on the Leeds player.

You can’t have your striker on the halfway line when you are on the edge of their box. Zero goal threat

In fairness, TG, that is obviously tactical. I'm sure Lacazette would much rather play as a striker than a false 9.

Liverpool know all the tricks and the line to tread. So often when they foul they kick the ball away just enough to not get booked but enough to slow down the game

It’s not one thing or the other. He’s dropping deep to help out in midfield because we are overwhelmed and we ask him to do that more and more because he’s lost his cutting edge.

Fabinho should be getting a yellow easily there. He flew in and was lucky he didn’t make contact then made a foul straight after. The guy is immune to a booking

He’s going to be replaced by Nketiah

Another one, a clear deliberate kick at an Arsenal player on the break and because we retain the ball the ref plays on and doesn’t punish what is a yellow card offence

I think this is the best I’ve seen Ødegaard play in that deeper role. Doesn’t seem to be feeling the effects of covid

We allowed too many long passes to get to their players

Can’t really argue here. Stripped of two world class players, they have still been clearly the better team.

Let’s pray for a Bergwijn.

Liverpool by far the better team today. If they go on and win the trophy I’ll still always remember it as quite tainted after they essentially cheated the rules to get a game called off when they were missing some key players with covid but not enough to really postpone it

As in we look like a team that doesn’t have a midfield fulcrum.

Hasn't looked like we have enough in the tank to cope with Liverpool, who are a better team obviously. They're further along in their development as a team, most of their impact players are at their peak where ours are just starting out. Lots to be learend from this.

There’s nothing new here we didn’t know.

We need better players to form a midfield 2. We don’t have it right now. We need options

Need a striker. Liverpool only won this because they have a jota and we don’t

Partey yellow carded. Again it felt soft, it was a foul but worthy of a yellow?! Very strange

He was lucky. That was a straight red most times.

Now Partey is off. Second one is a definite yellow but the first one is pathetic.

Ironically, he probably would've gotten a red if he wasn't already on a yellow - that would've been an extra two game suspension.

The person to blame for Partey getting sent off is Partey.

Of course it is because no matter how weak your first yellow is you can’t dive in like that.
It’s why first yellows mean a lot because one hot headed moment or miss timed tackle and you’re off.
Partey was stupid

Partey shouldn’t have played truth be told.

A 5 hour flight at midday then a cup semi in the evening. Nuts

I can remember supporting Arsenal when we weren’t red card specialists. But that was 20 years ago.

It’s hard enough to succeed without perpetually self destructing.
