Good and comfortable.... But need a few more goals..
Midfield looking very well rounded - solid in the tackle, nice shape, making runs to complement the attack and moving the ball well. Great for confidence. Would love to see this turn into a 3 or 4-0 now.
Almost a perfect first half that.
Summary for those who can't watch it.
Settled the crowd's nerves with the two goals, got them in fine voice instead of whispering & panicking when we do rarely lose possession.
Great performance from the entire midfield, esp Gini who has been bombing forwards, whilst Fabinho is on centre mid duty behind him, & Keita is almost a DM, but interchanges with Fabinho to support the forwards in getting the ball back if we need it, or laying off Milner on the right-hand side.
Salah is looking much better than recently, just not quite as clinical as it his best, Firmino again not quite at his best, but bags of energy & always in dangerous positions, Mane, as I called a few weeks back, always seems to find his shooting boots when Salah misplaces his, & that trend continues with his fourth goal in as many games.
Matip has looked much better today, hasn't done any stupid runs, played an amazing 60 yeard ball to set up Frimino who should really have scored.
VVD not quite at his best, but close. Milner looking solid enough & getting up the pitch to support the attack whenever he can, his cross led to one goal & set up a couple more chances.
Robbo looking more like himself, they've had no joy down his side either.
Allison not quite as solid as he was a month ago, but hasn't done anything wrong per se, just doesn't project that same air of supreme confidence as usual.
Based on that half Gini should play at the tip of the CM triangle every week.
Keita was good also.
A third goal early doors and we could really eat into the GD
Fixed it for you.
And to think people were getting tired of the reverse jinx!
Gray and Keyes in being cunts shocker. Keyes hammering on about Manè being offside despite gray saying it’s a tough call. Then moaning about him being well offside when the ball is played out wide when he’s nowhere near the play.
And from SCM
FFF with his usual start to the thread.
Lots of single sentence post with no context on the match that either delights or causes anxiety to the collective posters.
Anti-jinxers trying desperately to anti-jinx but fear retribution.
Moronic post from Moron saying a first goal from Mane is a bad thing.
Lot’s of vitriol to Gini for bottling a shot then posts of amazement for a beautiful lob for our second.
Control posting for the first half.
Beautiful goal Salah, 3-0
Third from Salah!
I love you Salah and Keita and firmino, lovely weighted pass by keita there.
Beautiful passing from Keita and Frim.
Brb, just changing my pants.
That goal was brilliant from all involved.
Little tribute to Shaq?
3-0 we’re going win the league..
Perfect pass from Keita, lovely ball to drop it at Firmino's feet, who clicks it backwards to Salah, who slots it into the corner.
Beautiful goal, brilliant build up play.
