Have read a few comments praising us but needing us to tighten up at the back. I can see this as a major problem as how do you have 4-5 or 6 in the box and still "tighten up" and still be running at the end of a long hard season?

Agree0 Disagree0

Good shout Leo, but, Last season everyone said we don't score enough for the chances we create, 3 shots on target 3 goals.

Leodis, you’re right in that it’s a feature of Bielsas style and it puts extra pressure on the dm and cbs, who are often the only players close to being back in defensive positions and even less so if chasing the match. It also means at this level you need better quality and faster players to cope with that challenge.

And two quality players for every vital position, Spanish.

Considering we missing cooper, Koch had about 3 days training and strujk has started about 5 professional games, Phillips was away on England duty only a few days before and we played the champions of England and recent European champions and who beat Man City by 18 points last season . I think we did ok . Let’s be honest the first penalty may not have been a penalty and a similar penalty wasn’t given in the West Ham Newcastle games and again a lazy forwards tackle late in the game cost us . We went toe to toe with Liverpool and forced them in mistakes at the back .

Not to mention the club World Champions Mighty.

We conceded 4. Against the PL champions. We are not the first. We won’t be the last. We are going to have a great season which won’t end in relegation, like many pundits predict, most of whom are eating their words today! It’s going to be a rollercoaster for sure, but a very entertaining one! Love the game last night. So proud of my team!

Morning all

Ouch what a sore head

Just scanning the comments and so much positivity. I have decided to not drain the Hottub of Hope til later in the autumn now

Regarding the scoreline, a few of us are worried about our defence but as certain posters mention, Koch, Dallas and Phillips were on international duty this week. Koch had 2 days training with his new teammates. Struick has half a dozen games under his belt. Cooper was injured. And none of our back 6 (include Phillips) has Premier League experience

To top this, we ain't going to be playing against Mane, Firmino and Salah every week. Especially a Salah in that sort of form

I am so proud today. So optimistic. I could care less if we are in a relegation battle all season if the players I support give there all like that. Thank you to everyone at LUFC, I walk a couple of inches taller today.

you know what axe as normal that is a fair assessment and good point, I think koch showed enough for me to think he will come good with more time to fit in. I don't think Cooper is the answer but stuijk played well. Alying was great against one of the best in the world.2nd goal keeper had a mare but he grew and made some good saves. considering what you have pointed out maybe things are not that bad.
