Well that was fucking dreadful.
The game as a whole I mean. Says a lot when we decided to rest some of our best players and play 3 lads that have hardly played first team football this season if any.
Let’s not lie, we all have one eye on Tuesday and this game was a nothing. Just happy to see Bisto tits didn’t get the better of us.
Although Phil Neville is probably about to Tweet “Merseyside is blue” again after another draw. Absolute helmet.
Anyway if anyone actually gives a shit, here are my ratings.
Loris Karius 7
Great save in the first half to deny Bolasie but didn’t have much to do other than that. Could have had Bogdan in goal after that to be honest and I would’t have cared.
Another clean sheet under his belt though. Expect his goal to be peppered on Tuesday.
Nathaniel Clyne 7
Remember this fucker? Always consistent, always got a 7. Yeah, he’s back. And he gets another 7. He’s probably had more of a challenge in the U23’s not against a pub side.
Virgil van Dijk 8
His head is a tractor beam for the ball. Bossed everything again. Sprays 40 yard balls for shits and giggles. Made Chunk Tosun look bang average, oh no wait, he is.
Dejan Lovren 7
Sound. Apart from the moments he decides he’s Dejan fucking Maradonna. Keep it simples Degsey.
Ragnar Klavan 6
Not a fan of his combover to be honest. Or him playing at LB. Had a fucking hairy moment slicing the ball away in the first half but don’t remember him doing much.
Jordan Henderson 7
Solid game from Hendo. Marshalled his players well and calmed play down when needed.
James Milner 7
Boring Milner? Probably had time to pull out the ironing board or measure fucking Mini Eggs in that game. Unlucky not to score. Save it for Tuesday though mate.
Gini Wijnaldum – 8
Bossed the six role. One thing doing it against Gravy FC another against City. Calm and composed, had Rooney on toast several times.
Sadio Mane – 7
Harry without Ron and Hermione, Kirk without Spock and Bones, Beyonce without the other two. Saido was without his two best mates and I proper felt for him. Looked sharp as he rounded the Haribo kid (Keane) a few times. Gutted he wasn’t on to score another 90+4 winner.
Danny Ings – 6.5
Fancied him to score but in truth his highlight was asking Coleman “Do you fucking want some?” Read and wrote that in a cockney accent. Works hard but couldn’t break the “Mersey Millionaires.”
Dom Solanke – 6
Like Ings, hard to get any real rhythm, should have scored really but him playing meant Bobby got a rest so thats sound. His touch was off too, not like him. Ah well.
Bobby – 6 – Gave away a few free kicks and stretched his legs for Tuesday.
Ox – 6 – Could have scored, just warming up for Tuesday too.
Trent – 6 – Wasn’t on for long but pretty sure he was on the right wing.
Hope you found that more entertaining than the game. I did.
