Amazing decision. Ffs. On the ground. Striker makes deliberate contact. Penalty. Reviewed for 10 seconds. Penalty. VAR the gift that keeps on giving.

Ha! I see Mancunians getting brave in our thread eh!

Eish, breaking all the wrong records since the start of 2021.

Not going to comment much on the penalty decision which was genuinely diabolical, nor the fact that the first goal comes from a re-taken throw-in 25 yards closer to our goal than the original.

Pickford saved everything that came his way so fair play to them there - you can't win if you can't score.

Once they got the early goal they simply did what Burnley, Southampton, and Brighton did - sat back in a low block and let us have the ball.

The League is done - hopefully when the injured re-appear (Jota, Keita and Fabinho) we'll have some fresh legs and ideas and finish in the Top 4.

I'm pretty philosophical about it all at this point - this team is a pale shadow of the one that gathered such honours in the past two seasons.

Fans support through thick and thin - we've been in worse, darker places before.

YNWA lads (and any lasses that may be lurking here)

PS: Of all the supporters in the League we're probably the best equipped mentally and emotionally to cope with bad times - we had 30 years of it not so long ago

Can somebody explain why Salah was taken off and Firminho and even Mane, who are terribly out of form, kept in?
Why is Kopp playing the same old tactic and team when teams have worked him out and he does not have the same players?

That was dire. Most of the other games was acceptable performance wise, just the final result sucked. Salah was less effective in this match but the other 2 hardly shone. Midfielders are not contributing in final 3rd enough and are hardly a goal threat. Penalties and free kicks have dried up. Keeper also having some howlers when coming out, directly costed us a few games.

Agreed Klopp said Salah didn't look fresh so he didn't want to risk him, I would have kept him on as he is our best chance for a goal. Atleast we have Fulham next and then maybe Championship league can boost the our confidence but currently we look very average.

**** if we can’t even play Davies and Phillips against Fulham then we beyond ****ed. Then we bought kak in this past transfer window. We sit with exactly the same issues even after the most recent transfers.

Could the physio have had that much influence? Or is the new physio just kak? Something is broken somewhere in the setup and the new physio is an obvious place to look.

Fab needs to get back into midfield.
