Sing to all Liverpool kids
The ball fell early in the game Curtis Jones On the edge of the bx and he put a knife on it which fell very harmfully into the keeper’s arm. When that happened I wondered what 19-year-old Stevie G would have done with the same opportunity.
While Jones not only has the ridiculous desire to push the ball-breaking net into a corner, but he also has bigotry and a lot of guilt towards his game. He didn’t score from outside the box but I don’t think Steve G would have ever been in a position where Jones would finally score. A few times in the game he used his skills brilliantly to save the ball before the man used his skills to beat the pitch up. It’s very exciting to see the young player find the confidence to play his natural sport and I think AOC and Kita could be sweating in his form if he can’t sort out his fitness questions.
Kalehar also deserves great praise today. Every time he played last season I felt he was a little horrible and didn’t seem to be able to defend anything originally kept in his normal direction. Today he was everywhere and made a top save, in which we won. I wonder if he did enough today to get a nod for Sunday that Alice either got her wrist done or she got Kovid.
Klopp will play many senior players in our final group game if I don’t make a top start for Liverpool next week. I will start my shuttle run to get fit and ready.
Arteta needs windows
I hope all the readers in F365 and in the current environment are good. As an Arsenal fan for 35 years, we’ve enjoyed some incredible results. Recent years have seen a clear lack of direction.
For me, with the culmination of Sanchez’s and Ozil’s panic deal, we’ve seen a misunderstood recruitment spread across three managers, players bought for a manager / strategist’s vision, who no longer fit into the next manager / strategist’s plan, but backed the big deal. Poor performance that has restricted the club’s ability to move on these players.
From top to bottom, there are inconsistencies in strategy, contract negotiations and some, ahem, research agent encourages player buying (best I can put it).
Arsenal’s team consists of a collection of groups amassed by many failed strategies – which I think show the problems hindering progress:
– Expensive unsolicited players (Socrates, Ozil, Mustafi, Kolasinak, etc.),
– Expensive players on loan (Saliba, Torrera, Guendozi)
– Non-Top 4 Caliber Players (Cedric, Zaka, Eleni, Luiz, Holding, Marie, Chambers)
– Will develop young players (Willock, Smith Rowe, Maitland-Niles, Nelson, Martineli, Niketia, Balogun)
– Underperforming Senior Players (Pepe, Lacazette, Willian)
– Parthe, Tierney and Gabriel’s good signatures with Ballerin, Saka and A Bameyang (despite the big deal)
It is difficult to right the ship when the joint parts are designed for something else. The team needs a clear strategy over time to reach that level by competently changing some of the above groups and the financial problems associated with them.
No doubt, Arsenal’s performance at the moment is worrisome. Perhaps Irteta’s tactics are hampered by injuries or by fear of knocking out the weaker parts of the team. Or, more worryingly, it could be the strategy we are embarking on that is not appropriate because of the limitations of Arteta / Edu. Partay and Gabriel have remained promising, somewhat neglected by Willian’s form. The jury is still out.
One thing I think you have to do is run with a clear strategy, changing the lead too badly and putting the teams together in a way that doesn’t fit any strategy and creates more headaches down the line.
Arsenal fans can only hope that this is a tough part ahead of the bright days ahead.
If Grillish were South American
After watching Monday night’s match I got frustrated with Grillish’s opponent, screaming while facing, dives (which is mostly ignored by the media) going down one at a time and grabbing the wrong leg which grabbed him turned and turned on the floor. He is a very talented player but I hate to see him, if he was South American I am sure people would call him right now, but he plays for England because he seems to be passing at the moment, I know That it receives. Fouled a lot but he dives a lot as well. I wish he ignored the dark arts side of the game that reminds me a bit of a young Ronaldo at Man Utde who was heavily criticized by opposition fans for doing similar things.
How good is Dean Henderson?
Going out for maybe a few games in the light of De Gea, it will be interesting to see Dean Henderson make sure everyone is as good as what he makes. De Gea has been weak by his own standards – and for a few asons Tuo he was clearly one, if he is not the best goalkeeper in the world. And yet he still makes surprising defenses and is behind the best in the world despite being behind a maneuver like defense.
Obviously Hando is our player and I want us to keep a clean sheet and win games so I want him to do well, but after seeing Sheffield United last season and the games he has played this season, I don’t get the hype. He is polite enough, defends what you would expect and something more than you would expect from a huge club goalkeeper. So the question is, is Dean Henderson really improving on Dave? And if it weren’t for English, would anyone really be blabbering on about it?
More on VAR
After watching the MNF discussion regarding S Fuside and VAR ..
અભ I was again shocked by the lack of understanding of the real problem. As Gary said, VARA always has to deal with sfacid which is extremely tight. Pundits and journalists treating VAR seem to think it is a goal line technique and capable of calling out differences with millimeter accuracy – this assumption is completely wrong. Camera My resolution, camera position, player position, camera frame rate and human errors when drawing lines combine to form an error margin of more than a few millimeters. The end result is that the nearest side-to-face calls are essentially accurate when using a VAR.
The FAA needs to determine what the margin error (i.e. the distance between two players) should be in order to make more than 95% correct decisions. You can do this in a lot of ways, the simplest is to adopt the Dutch system that trains use a VAR line that generates an onside call if the line overlaps. Alternatively, you can ask the authorities to call on the 1000 offside decisions generated on FIFA 21 where certain conditions have been created by the computer. Or you can create real examples based on training using devices that record body position. This results in a minimum distance between two players (e.g. 5 cm) where we can at least 95% believe that the player is offside. It can be any side of the distance, this way the foot of Loney will take away my spoiled armpit side-by-side calls.
Hi, dissatisfied LFC fan
It seems to me that Isha is a compromise of side-by-side rules that should be very straightforward based on my knowledge of edge tech and IT cutting (virtually nothing, seeing as you say). The side fusside does not catch any stray tones, attached to the finger or front shoulder, it will catch the player gaining any advantage by staying in front of the last defender. The biggest point for me is that players need to have at least half the chance to take this on their own, so from a fixed point on the player we would be better off to assess where they are for side-fused purposes. I think the center of the chest is a nice place to measure the side faઇડade – it’s the place where the winners of Olympic sprints are measured all after, where the speed is even higher and the margins are even tighter. If your torso is level, then you seem to fit the rule perfectly for me.
This can happen the same way as it does now, with a TV camera, but now all players wear one of those sports-bra looking items to monitor heart rate and provide data to the coach. So maybe they will have sensors that tell the VAR ref where they are on the pitch? Would it be more complicated than the goal line tech that immediately comes up with ‘two mm’ decisions that everyone is usually happy enough with?

If the VAR is working …
My work involves looking at things from different angles, so this is how. VAR is working. The number of goals scored is as low as the VRL.
Shirt-pulling and general blocking and tugging in the bucks on corners and free kicks are almost eliminated. Sneaky trips are now being seen so players are less likely to try it.
Sure there are problems, but if you focus on the camera instead of focusing on one person’s decision in detail, it affects the player’s behavior, resulting in a better and more enjoyable game.
Eight days a week?
Not a Liverpool fan so he doesn’t have an ax to grind, but Danny LFC NY (probably has an ax to grind) as suggested by Saturday’s Liverpool match would have moved later or on Sunday if Klopp would have complained nearby in Tuesday night’s match against Ajax?
See, the real problem here is that we have seven days a week, so playing twice a week (which is due to the extraordinary nature of this season) always means that the distance between games will be irregular on one side or the other. Klopp is allowed to complain of course, but he needs to be a little more thoughtful about who he is targeting otherwise it sounds like an ad ***.
The simple thing is that we should change the week to eight days or just accept that the world is unjust and move on with it, do the best.

Great footballer. Premier League winners. Career too short. Now we enjoy enjoying it as a pundit. It could just be Micah Richards.
