    “Frustrated” and “unlucky”. Those two words are really getting a run out these days.
    Perfect moment for an international break followed by a trip to old crapford.

    Was certainly hopping for a win from this game, which as things stand would have put us 4th. Will be waiting for the 10-12 game before forming my complete judgment on our chances this season.

    My partial view was certainly not helped by that result and another ****ty goal conceded.

    From Cold Comfort Farm: At least Klopp hasn’t received the dreaded vote of confidence, unlike another manager on Merseyside.

    (We’re still crap right now, for what it’s worth).

    A nice piece on Jonjo:

    In this respect, the Newcastle midfielder is the ultimate footballer, his contributions oscillating between the sublime and the ridiculous, prompting a likeness to both Andrea Pirlo and Mr. Bean within the same match.

    The prime example came four years ago, when Shelvey was at Swansea. For the visit of his former club, Liverpool, the midfielder produced one of the most remarkable performances in Premier League history. First, he opened the scoring from close-range, having miscued an attempted 30-yard volley in such clumsy fashion that it turned into an improvised dribble past two opponents. Shortly afterwards, under no pressure at all, played a staggeringly weak back-pass that Daniel Sturridge converted. The score was 1-1 and Shelvey had been responsible for both goals. The game was three minutes old.

    ‘How many mistakes are you allowed?’ Klopp asked the fourth official. ‘Because if it’s 15, you’ve got one left.’

    I get the impression that Rafa could have lined out for us or them and the score would have been the same.
