Watched Iron Cowboy on Netflix last night. A documentary about a guy who did 50 Ironman distance Triathlons in 50 consecutive days in each of the 50 American States.

I'm sitting just up from it, looked like a clear red all day long imo.

Jaysis the heart attacks are starting early this year...
Blessed...
How did Ings miss that chance to equalise?
Still though Liverpool could have been 3 or 4 up in that second half and should have had the game killed off.
Adrian actually did have a decent game and made some great saves, some brain fart for their goal though.

Cracker by Mane. Under fair bit of pressure in that first half!! Very lucky to be 1up!!
Or more like very lucky not to be 3 down.....

Some finish alright from Mane, he has become arguably more important to Liverpool than Salah.That first half performance was to be expected though after the game midweek.  Hopefully they can get a 2nd goal now to kill the game off

The positive is the three lads all look very sharp!

The midfield isn't looking good, but it never really looks good. Fab is a bit down, but I'm not worried about him (and I'd make him lead peno taker). Hendo is playing as well as he can play, so won't complain about him only being average. Had hoped Ox would regain his form quickly, but that hasn't happened yet. And Keita the fecker back injured. Milner not going well, although rarely looks good alongside Hendo, but he might finally be going towards the other side of the hill. Gini is a feckin waste of space. Hiding again when the going is tough. I really dunno how gets away with it. Continually putting himself in a place where he can't receive the ball, and then pointing for the ball to go somewhere else other than him. I know he was amazing v Barca, which makes it more frustrating how little he contributes normally, does my head in!

Defence is all over the shop. Word is they're trying to play a little bit differently than last year. Hopefully we'll cop on soon that last year's defensive plan was the best one!

Almost everytime Adrian makes a save it rebounds out to a dangerous position. That will definitely cost us goals. Still, prefer him to Mig or Karius. Pity Kelleher was injured at exactly the wrong time.

Southampton was always going to be dangerous given so close to Istanbul, and now ET added to that. And them getting hammered on Day 1 was not a good thing.

Salah needs to get the head up more. In the two games so far he has taken on shots when he should have passed. I know its hard to criticise him given his record but if he was a bit more unselfish (a la Bobby beside him) I think it would benefit the team. For Mane's first goal Mo would probably have taken the shot on with the keeper at point blank range rather than poke it to the side.

I hope the defense will sort itself out and revert back to last years approach. Midfield slightly more concerning but Henderson has been excellent so far and hopefully Fabinho will press on. Disappointed not to see a bit of Keita last night, hope the injury is not too serious.

I actually thought Salah should have been more selfish last night. There were a couple of times he passed when he might have been better taking it on himself.

Other Euro 4???

Only 3 UEFA cups.

"Other Euro" is Euro Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup combined. Hence Liverpool 3 and ManU 2.
Before today, Liverpool also had 3 Super Cups, so I think someone took that graph and thought "Other Euro" meant Super Cup, so (wrongly) added one to it!
Between super cups and intercontinental cups, United have 3. So we'd have one more, but I wouldnt call them "Major Trophies".  Like you'd never include charity shields (especially as United have more!)

So overall, still level in the Major Trophy league table at 42 each.
Ah you'd definitely have to count the Super Cups... :)

Didn't look like a peno from the replays.
Liverpool players looked wrecked.

Chelsea deserve that. Liverpool have been very flat so far.
Yeah Chelsea far more up for it so far anyway and deserve their lead.
Ah f**k theres a 2nd goal for Chelsea

Or maybe not...ruled out for offside...
Liverpool shockingly poor.

It's another trophy to win, we went long enough winning nothing. It's a good habit to get into.
I'll be disappointed if they don't win tonight anyway. Maybe not Kiev levels of disappointment but disappointed all the same.
I agree with quit yo jibbajabba that it is a few levels above the Charity Shield.

Body found in the search for Nora Quoirin. Likely to be her.
Very sad case. Small consolation though it is but at least they have a body, (if it is her obviously)
