No Pleasing Some Supporters

23 Oct

I was working on Saturday night and wasn’t able to watch the Liverpool match against Huddersfield, I only managed to catch about 10 minutes of commentary on the radio.

It didn’t sound like a great game or performance from Liverpool but we won and that was the most important thing.

After the game I had a look at Twitter to see the reaction from Liverpool supporters, and most weren’t happy despite the win.

I think many supporters thought Liverpool should be beating a struggling Huddersfield team by 4 or 5 goals, but football doesn’t always work out the way us supporters expect.

A scrappy 1-0 win is just as important as a 5-0 win at the end of the day, it wins 3 points, although it is far more encouraging to score plenty of goals and play exciting and attractive football.

In fairness to the frustrated Liverpool supporters out there, we haven’t really witnessed any of the exciting attacking football from last season as Mane, Firmino and Salah in particular ripped apart defences on a regular occurrence.

But Liverpool are sitting joint top of the Premier League level on points with Manchester City.

This time last season we were already 12 points behind City despite playing more attractive football.

However, this season Jurgen Klopp’s men are not so reliant on scoring goals because they are more solid in defence with the additions of Alisson as goalkeeper and Virgil van Dijk in the centre of defence as key improvements.

Liverpool’s attacking form has struggled this season but surely it is only a matter of time before they click into gear again, so there is much more to come from this team and that must be frightening for the rest of the league as we sit in a great position in the league.

But unfortunately there will always be supporters that are never happy.
