Minamino was seeing the headlines there with that late chance. It was a simple side foot home had he had a bit of composure instead of trying to blast it.

Draw fair result. Liverpool nowhere near enough in attack.

Young Williams looked very lively when he came on. 

Still al to play for though.

We generally rely on our full backs to be the creative force, and even moreso without Salah and Mane, but they were both below par last night. Robbo’s set piece delivery was particularly bad, and really don’t know what Trent was at in the second half moving inside all the time.
We immediately looked far more dangerous when Neco came on and reverted to giving us width.

Jones also made a difference when he came on, and it was only in the last few minutes when we actually looked like scoring, but Taki fluffed his lines. What he did was easy to do the way the ball came at him on the up, but obviously should have scored. He’d done okay up to that, but that’s likely his confidence gone at a time when we really need him to step up over the next few games.

Martinelli and Saka have serious pace so no doubt that was playing on the two Liverpool fullbacks minds before they ventured forward but yes TTA is now inclined to position himself more centrally than he probably should, not sure why as that's an already congested area for Liverpool when they're on the attack.
Henderson still good at the workman like stuff but defence splitting passes are going awry at the minute so easy for teams to defend that especially when theres now a derth of crosses coming across into the box from the two wide men.

Minamino should have bagged a goal alright but playing against 10 men Liverpool should have been putting this game to bed with 2-0 or more. Arsenal now have something to play for next week

Going by the 'experts' these fit lads should be absolutely fine! No issues at all...
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Are the rumours true about not meeting Salahs wage demands?

That’s the thing about rumours…..

I reckon an anonymous GAA forum in Ireland is exactly the place where the nuances of contract negotiations in a huge football club with the best player in the world will be found…

I asked about Salah not Lewandowski;)

Seriously though, would be criminal if he left on a free over wages. Although from a United POV it’d be great if they put him on mad money and he decided to stop putting effort in like most of our players as soon as they get the big bucks.

Difficult situation for the club.

If Mo is paid the astronomical wages he’s after (and that City and United pay) then Mane, Virge, Alisson and more will want similar.
Then that reduces the budget for new players.
Remember, the owners don’t put anything into the club, they just allow the club to spend what it earns.

Hopefully a compromise will be reached. Still 18 months left on the contract.

Surprising Liverpool can hold on to those lads because they’re as good as anyone in the world in their positions and could demand top dollar at any club.

Part of it is down to the character of player they sign

Yeah in fairness they mostly seem likeable lads and even that fecker Robertson is the sort of dog you’d hate when he’s against you but you’d love on your team.

Hard to watch the likes of Maguire, Pogba, Lingard, Rashford, Martial etc getting a clean fortune for sulking about not giving a shite.
