Aye...just as well you have Mane, Firmino & Salah to 'paper over the cracks' of that lot at the back...

It's Klopp's biggest failing to date, not spending money on a decent CB after it became apparent that van Dijk wasn't escaping from St. Mary's this summer...

He is a phenomenal talent but his behaviour spoils it.

Yes! At work! Thankfully the management are all out so I don't have to keep the noise down either!

Turns out John Stones is a better striker than defender. Who knew...

A glorious victory and evening.

Everything will look so much more beautiful as I leave the office and head to my pilates class.

Verthongen was a little silly at the end. We remain in decent shape and have a chance of progression in the competition now.

We need to beat Swansea on Saturday and the Wembley voodoo lazy sports journalism can be put to bed.

Paul Pogba is set to be out for between a month and six weeks with the hamstring injury he sustained. He started the season well. Not too concerned as we have some good depth in midfield.

Royally screws my Fantasy team, almost as much as me dropping Kane in favour of Mane & Chicarito did last week....

The pre-season Fantasy optimism seems like a cruel joke now...

Will Fellatio or Miki Targaryen be his replacement?

I only transferred Miki out on Sunday........

Bloody autocorrect....

Yikes!


I made the mistake of making Chicarito captain. And Mane was my vice captain! Things really not going so well for me in FF.

Lol.


Mkhitaryan has started every game.


I assume Fellaini or Herrera will start with Pogba out.

Miki ain't any "replacement" for Pogba, totally different type of player; Fellaini seems favoured by Jose, but I'd think (and hope) that Herrera is the man to come in alongside Matic.

thanks will help me adjust my FF team and given he isn't actually that good you won't miss him at all - Fellani improved your team when he came onn
