    Really well - in Klopp's interview above - he mentions how well our positioning was between the lines - it was really good the way we retained possession and also prevented all those through balls that we struggle with.  Matip did really well driving forward from the back on a few occasions, and also - had no idea about Gini's initial burst of pace he has in him.  Very well controlled today, only downside was that again I thought the team failed to use Keita properly - and I kinda feel sorry for him as he is making himself available for the pass and some of the regulars don't pass to him - so he kind of faded from the game a little.

    It was a midfield 2, Keita played alternatively at #10 or on LW. Gini looked a bit rusty, Fabinho OK but nothing more.

    Yea first half Gini looked weak and sloppy, he improved along with the scoreline but overall an average performance.

    No idea, but hes now scored 42 league goals in 52 games. Thats insane, no other Liverpool player in the PL era come close to those numbers. The guy is a machine.

    For those who are particularly interested in how our midfield performed:




    I guess nobody bothered to make Gini's highlights :)

    On a side note, isn't it amazing how far the technology has come? I remember watching I think 2002 CL final in my University library on a 250kps stream the size of a matchbox where you could barely distinguish one team from another – and feeling lucky that I found the stream at all. Fast-forward to now and I can post edited highlights of individual players in TV quality just a few hours after the match against Bournemouth. If bread and circuses is the formula to keep the populace relatively happy and docile, we are indeed getting damn good circuses.

    I thought Fabinho did quite well, he didn't have loads to do because Bournemouth were poor, but he intercepted well and put an end to a couple of breaks they had. Gini was the usual, kept things flowing but nothing above the norm, Keita was quiet compared to his last game, he didn't get involved so much.

    Thats the heavily rotated team that won 2-1 in 2016, before the EL final. Not the team that lost 4-3 in the 16/17 season.

    Yeah, that was the one with Origi, when he scored and we were cruising but then we just fell to pieces.

    Yes, I saw the team had Lucas and Lovren as CB’s and Karius in goal.

    Imagine having Mo Salah as your team mate, you must feel 10 feet tall stepping onto the pitch.

    It doesn't really matter when he's playing as well as this, but I'm really tired of Salah's non-reaction to goals. If he's trying to send a message to someone, tell us what it is, and if he isn't, he ought to be aware it looks weird.

    Trivial complaint number two: we're LFC, we're reds, so all the players wearing blue boots should get a grip. Apart from it being verboten historically anyway, it's aesthetically horrible with a red kit.

    Trivial complaint number three: That appalling grey kit - surely we've completed whatever contractual obligation we have to wear the fecking awful thing, so burn it and never speak of it ever again.
