Best to do things like that whilst you're winning at least (phew).

Four from four. :D

Yep, true that Bomber. But £67 million man Allison did look unco and embarrassed doing that. And did you notice the camera instantly panned to the bench with Mignolet looking glum-faced?

So many ‘keepers look like fish out of water trying to dribble past on-rushing forwards and clearly haven’t taken part in small-sided games as outfield players in practice games.

What are you discussing one mistake but not the whole game? Is being positive about anything not in your way of thinking :clown:

He screwed up, also made a great save, great handling, good kicking and good passing. And we won, be positive about something for once.

You are as bad as con. He helped us win the game - job done. Played four , won four, one conceded to a mistake - it’s not important.

I think that Watford will pull of a Leicesterish season this year.

They're pretty solid all round and Deeney's a proper old fashioned centre forward. Long way to go though.

And still only 2-1 with a debatable penalty decision as well.

I thought that, Spurs just looked jaded, like they'd played a whole season already.

Whilst Liverpool completely deserved the win, it would have been funny to see Klopp's face if Spurs had been given a justifiable penalty right at the death.

Big month or so ahead for The Reds - if they can come through that with flying colours, then we might actually be a real threat this season. Can only hope :wink:

Wagner needs to explain to them that just kicking players doesn't work in the Premier League (except Ozil). They worked really hard in the first half but they're so naive, giving fouls away all the time, they just invite teams to pressure them. I thought Mooy looked pretty good.

On the up side, the following season should prove to be considerably easier.

You know what N5 1BH was getting at, GIsn’tAnEnglishman.

It wasn’t a good look for the hallowed National Stadium. I know they have to play more sport, any sport & other events there for it to pay its way, but surely they could have painted more green paint over the gridiron lines. And did they just do a token heavy rolling of the pitch? The ball definitely took a bobble off that surface just as Spurs had a chance across the face of goals to equalize.

If spurs didn't do a west Adelaide, no one would have even have noticed.

To be fair they haven’t actually defaulted yet, though wonder what the repayments are on a 600 million quid debt. An initial down payment of one Harry Kane followed by quarterly instalments of an Eriksen followed by a Trippier then a Winks etc.?

It was more about WA2 and them meeting their deadlines to move to the new ground rather than WA1 not paying their debts.
