I think the effort and commitment from Spurs is good. There were just multiple players sprinting hard to get back on D down 3-0 with five minutes to go. But the tactics are not working. They are significantly underperforming their talent.

They’re on a terrible run and did not buy wisely this season and Klopp stuck in a terrible rut tactically - but any LFC fan on a Klopp Out kick is a fool. Who are you going to get in? Look across the park if you want to see what instability gets you.

As to FSG out, I want them em out of Fenway too. Maybe they can go arbitrage GameStop etc
what's wrong with Ancelotti?

Gerard!

“Klopp out” is utterly stupid. But this team does need to be shaken up right now - change in shape, change in starting XI, different color Gatorade, throwback uniforms to last season...get creative.

Messi is going off on Alaves right now, two gorgeous goals, an assist, a disallowed goal, and a hockey assist to cap it off

I’m finally watching the Union-Schalke game. Earlier in the game, the announcers said that Taiwo Awoniyi has missed 7 “sitters” this season (I didn’t know that was a stat). He just missed another. Can Liverpool please get him a work permit or at least get him out of Berlin?

Carlo is the bandaid to a long period of managerial instability.

Following Moyes leaving for ManU- its Been a revolving door. As a measuring stick, Everton academy product Tom Davies has played for seven managers with the first team , each of whom has had his own philosophy, preferred formation, etc. the need to buy players to accommodate each managers vision (and to overcome the poor performance of the predecessor) has led to a roster full of overpriced, mismatched parts, who had to be moved on at a loss or couldn’t be got rid of at all. Carlo is a godsend and recruitment has been excellent but it will be several more windows before the dead wood is cleared out.

These jokers best be careful what they wish for with this KloppOut stuff.

Agreed , the KloppOut thing is beyond stupid. Ive long thought that soccer fans (and media) are , by far the most reactionary of fan bases.

What a cheat, going down in the box on minimal contact and looking for a pen, how can anyone support a team with a player like that?!

West Brom have had all the best chance this half. Kind of a disappointment for them.

West Brom have a player named Okay

I haven’t wanted a shirt so much since the days of Gaetan Bong

Although he really should be a bit more ambitious

Suppose that’s life under Big Sam

Really impressive from Fulham - they beat Everton 2-0 and never really seemed all that troubled, admittedly DCL was out and Keane/Mina were started on the bench.

They were quite quick to hook Koeman, and Marco Silva seemed like an awkward fit. Roberto Martinez's time just ran out, and he seemed to have good period (and bad)
hope Carlo gets more time than Silva and Koeman (at least the time that Martinez got) to shape things up

this was a disaster. Not sure what Carlo was trying to do here, team selection and tactics were terrible

Give Fulham credit they were excellent

West Ham beating Sheffielf Utd 2-0 now. Something tells me this is gonna be three points for the Hammers. McBurnie is on...i dunno if I've ever seen him score a goal. Has anyone?

McGoldrick has had to great chances to score with a headr, but both times, not enough power, not enough confidence that he can actually score.

Commentators make a good point. The 6 foot 4 Inches tall McBurnie is lurking on the fringes of the 18 yard box...maybe he'd be better trying to get his head on the end of one of these fine crosses.

Pickford is such a wildcard. Sometimes in a good way sometimes in a bad way but he still plays like he’s hopped up on speed back there it must be so awful to play with him as a defender

merit: you forget how annoying Richarlisons antics are until you play him. He’s exhausting
