My Take – JK82

Sadly we are looking very much like smoke and mirrors and are just papering over the cracks. Spurs were poor yesterday but we never went out to win that game. Milner filled in well at left back but he has and will play better in his natural position. Last season he was up there with […]

My Take – Spurs

First off I thought all the lads did the business with the exception of Coutinho, Lallana & Clyne. Coutinho was clearly not 100% perhaps he was brought brought back too soon? Lallana was missing for large chunks of the game, have the feeling Klopp played him deeper than normal. Once again as in the Burnley […]

My Take – Burnley

lfc badge

My take by 25May05 I’ve seen the highlights on MOTD… well low lights. Defensively we were total and utter pants, probably the worst I’ve seen in 42 years.
