One game does not make Adam poor. It will take time to make him a poor player.

 

Lovren was played right centre back by Rogers yesterday. All his good work for Saints came when he played left centre back. Also let's not forget than Wanyama and Schneiderlin don't play in front of him.

 

I think Van Gaal bought Rojo because he wasn't convinced by Shaw. I think Shaw has been poorly advised to go to Man U. Although he will become a very Rich young man, which isn't the worst thing in the world.

 

Personally thought Lallana was reasonably good in a mediocre Liverpool performance. Not bad considering he's been injured. Not happy with how he left but as you say it'll be whole season before we can judge whether he's going to carry on playing at the level he was for us last year.

He's not going to lose his quality but he is going to have to find a way to play in a team where there are a lot of players who demand the ball and want to do things with it. No doubt he was the focus of our play at Saints but at Liverpool you've got Sturridge, Sterling, Gerrard, and Coutinho (maybe others I've missed too) who all want the ball and to do things with it regardless of where they play on the pitch.

 

His biggest challenge will be the change he has to have in mentality as a player more than anything else. Was surprised to see him come off ahead of Markovic but as it was his first game this season maybe it was a sensible thing to do. Personally think teams will see the left hand side of Liverpool's team very easy to attack if they continue to play Lallana and Moreno there.

I think that the biggest problem for him will be how he slots into the team. At SMS last season, it was largely him having a free reign and others fitting around him as he changed sides and wandered all over the place. Not sure he will get that opportunity at Liverpool. If the role he was given when playing for England is anything to go by, then he might be in for a difficult season, and have the "fans" on his back quite quickly.

Lallana Lovern and Lambert all in the Liverpool squad for tonight (Lambert as a sub)

 

Chambers in the Arsenal team (as a sub) for tonight to

 

Tonight is part of the reason we will struggle to hold on to good players we can't offer what all four of these ex-players are getting tonight

 

I dream for the day I get to play Ludogorets.

 

(although I get your point)

Hope all the English CL teams lose every game. Used to like following them, but now it just reinforces the inequalities in football. Interesting comment from Redkrap about FFP. He was questioning the word fair, and said is it fair that one team can spend £150m and another limited to £8m.

I'm watching this!

 

  • Adam does Cruyff turn, drink one shot
  • Dejan fouls someone, drink one shot
  • Adam shoots weakly, drink one shot
  • Adam dives, drink 2 shots
  • Southampton are mentioned, finish bottle

 

I'm watching on Swedish TV and the bottom one would put me in A&E inside 10 minutes.

 

As for the game, why is Champions League football regarded as a necessity to play for England by so many people? I don't remember seeing Saints play a team this sh*t when we were in League 1.

The Bulgarians are awful too.

Lallana looks like a man massively lacking in confidence. Lovren looks a bit lost defensively.

 

I think Lovren will come good, Lallana needs a goal to settle him in. I won't shed a tear if he doesn't get it.

 

As has been said, it looks like Lovren excels with a proper leader next to him. Fonte obviously did that job really well and perhaps he's even better than we realised in that respect. He certainly made Yoshida step up in the opening couple of games too.

 

I think Liverpool still need that Carragher type who can control the defence and let Lovren do a job of "defending" rather than leading. Christ, some people on here wanted him to captain Saints ... he would have folded, delicate flower.
