Couldn't watch the match properly so only saw brief highlights but all 3 goals were Fulham players being allowed to get efforts on goal from within the 6 yard box. No howlers in there. Kelleher's crime is that he's not Allison, the best goal keeper in the world. We do give away too many big chances. If we want to become a title winning team again we'll need to improve defensively, starting by taking care of the ball better.

Not going to have a go at anyone. The conditions were awful. Fantastic goals. Trent has definitely the role of vice captain very seriously. Tremendous game today and I’m giving him both of the goals. It’s taken a while to find a replacement for Gerrard and in Trent we may just have found one !!

It’s the first time I ever see City on the end of a bad decision, to be fair it was Grealish with the one on one with the keeper, definitely not a certain goal.

I think this is correct, allowing shots from the six yard box is never really the goalies fault. To be fair it was the first time he didn’t look like a fantastic keeper, up until this season I never saw him look shaky. I still think is one of the better keepers in the league, this run of games will tell us a lot because the PL is different from cup games.

I did say almost Kazza  :laugh: If Grealish didn’t score his £100m price tag would look even worse than it already does !! Perhaps the ref was doing him a favour  :laugh:

It feels as though we're shipping a lot of goals at the moment but in reality only Arsenal have conceded less in the league! Even Citeh have conceded 2 more.
Funny old game, Saint.

Devaney - the ref was the same ref that scrubbed the Diaz goal ALSO against Spurs. I've got a sneaky thought he may well be a spurs fan. He's stopped both City & us from taking points of Spurs. Something fishy going on with that corrupt b@stardo

I don't know about that. The last time he started a PL game he shipped 4 goals against Southampton so that's 7 in two PL starts. Sounds shaky to me.

When you look back at that season we won the league it wasn’t as if we steamrolled teams left right and centre, there was a hell of a lot of 2-1 wins and very nervy last 10 minutes.
We are clearly not firing on all cylinders atm but we sit in second place and have played the likes of City, Chelsea, Newcastle & Tottenham all away from home. We are in a trrrific position, no team plays well week in week out for 9 solid months, winning the title is about getting it done wether you are playing well or not which is what we are managing to do.

If you look at the leagues we won in the 1970's and 80's it was always done the hard way, never easy.
Position          Games W     D      L      Season
1 Liverpool  42 23 11 8 76/77
2 Liverpool 42 24 9 9      77/78
1 Liverpool 42 30 8 4 78/79
1 Liverpool  42 25 10 7      79/80
5 Liverpool 42 17 17 8 80/81
1 Liverpool  42 26 9 7      81/82

Looking at those league standings, it's interesting to see just how many games sides lost in a season - hence the football was more exciting than today when a side can go all season losing just 1-2-3 games.

Well mate we will just have to disagree on this. I re-watched the goals several times  and imo both of Fulhams first two goals were very savable, for christ's sake, the first one went through Kellehers legs . Do agree however that Kelleher is not Alisson  :D

Have another look  :oops:

Kelleher is no Alisson but he’s better than he is currently showing, a clean sheet or two will settle him down

Seeing that again Woof I don’t think he was at fault for any of the goals, even the one that went through his legs, ball came in fast and had he saved it it would have been a great Allison type save. Something I didn’t notice before was Tsimikas out jumping Reed for the final goal as he was out jumped for Fulham’s third, then Reed ( who had just done the same thing) claiming he was fouled.
