Thought the potential of having James, Rash and Martial up top together would be really great, speed, movement and interchangeable, defences would struggle to cope, we just need a midfield to feed them.

Agree4 Disagree0

And to keep Martial fit.

We are effective only against defences who don't sit deep.
Because we have devasting pace on counter attacks.

On the other hand, we lack technical quality players to do intricate passes against defences which sit very deep.

We had 2 shots on target i wouldn't call that devastating TRD.
It was poison to watch.

Ken,

Starting to think you watched a different game or had ridiculous expectations, I thought the game was a great watch, you can throw shots on target stats out but we had other chances that just missed. On motd last night I realised how close we came to a 2nd which would have killed it and we pretty much negated their threat in the 2nd half as I don’t remember a meaningful chance until the goal.

He didn't watch a different game he just never wore those 'rose-tinted' glasses! :)

And he should have high expectations. You are Manchester United - as I said before a colossus of English football, the richest club in the World! And you seem content to concede that your players wouldn't get on our bench! Oh how I hated the reverse situation over some years gone by!

I might be a Merseyside Red and we might be bitter rivals but I have respect. BUT as a fan of another colossus my expectations are high, they bloody should be for both sets of fans!

But it is plain and simple that this game was highly forgettable, lacked quality and any form of positive result for either team would have been unwarranted!

No gds. I got what i expected a draw. My expectations were not unreasonable. I felt if we scored first we would park the bus and make it hard by hassling them. So i got exactly what i expected.
But it was awful to watch. If that sort if stuff excites or pleases you that's fine.
A very minor improvement.

Bird,

I was at the game and enjoyed it, the atmosphere was great and there were few chances because of the way both teams played, some great defending.

I’m not conceding that our players wouldn’t get on your bench, I am saying tongue in cheek what some pundits were saying before the game and now everyone was expecting the scousers to just turn up and roll us over as we are so bad, which didn’t happen and we proved the gulf in class isn’t quite what some would have you believe.

I enjoy even the odd boring game at Anfield simply because of the atmosphere and the camaraderie in the Kop, so I understand how and why you enjoyed this forgettable game.

Being there often diffuses what is, in effect, the tedious element on those days where on-field quality is somewhat lacking (as it was yesterday) .

As for gulf's in class. For me these are never determined by a single game shoot out but through differences in points achieved across season long campaigns, etc. Your Blue neighbours lost to Norwich earlier this season but, believe me, there is a gulf!

21 Oct 2019 19:01:36
I agree there’s a gulf at the moment, it’s just not as big as some would have you believe, your squad depth isn’t great especially after the front 3 and if you had the injuries we had you would struggle.

I assure you the game wasn’t forgettable for me, it was the day we stopped Liverpool matching the record winning games in a row and the beginning of Liverpool dropping below city, I won’t be forgetting that in a hurry.

21 Oct 2019 22:07:47
Well said GDS.

22 Oct 2019 11:01:08
Its a 15 point gulf after 15 games that's the reality.
If my aunt was my uncle it might be different.
If if if if if.
