Ben Johnson’s player ratings after after Leicester City 1 Liverpool 0 in the Premier League at The King Power Stadium…
I don’t know.
First half I thought he was shite. Some nice long balls but loads of shite short ones when people were well placed. Wasn’t the only one, was in the majority. Second half not much better. None of them covered themselves in any fucking glory to be fair. Wow. Didn’t expect that.
Great tackle on the cover when they were in. Funny that toboggan run he went on. Absolutely no brakes. Would like something to come off one of them at some point because otherwise it is a waste of fucking time.
Should he do better for their goal? Tried to block the bottom left so the lad just twats it in the other corner.
Was fucking great first half. Our best player in a half of frankly misplaced passes and shite touches. Not in it as much second half.
Did alright. Alright. But I don’t know, you can’t have a higher score if you are part of a team that plays against a side that played fucking yesterday or whatever and that happens.
Did alright for about 10 minutes and then reverted to type. Was rightly took off. I don’t know, he fucking loves giving the fucking thing away doesn’t he?
I don’t understand how we haven’t ran over them. They literally played a day ago and we looked fucked. Never mind anything else. Did OK. But we got beat and that might be the league fucked.
Not Mo’s night tonight. If the pen goes in we win the game, if the header goes in we win the game. Neither of them did. We lost. Unlucky with the chance and great save but you can’t miss pens and free headers from six yards.
Sometimes Sadio plays like his body is in flux between human and Ironman. Tonight was an Ironman night. No clue how much give he had in his limbs. Touch like a fucking tree trunk. I’m not sure how many times he gave it away first half but it must have been over 20. Then he has the chance at 0-0 and absolutely fucking three-wood titaniumed it over the bar. I don’t know.
I’m not sure he did much wrong tonight. But that said, The Reds might be fucked for the league now. I don’t know. Was a weird performance from everyone. Undiagnosed Covid making them all go sick in the head. No composure, no fucking legs, no brains. Are they the new three main symptoms of the Omicron? I think The Reds are swamped with it.
Came on and we were hoping for the Naby from last week and instead we got the Naby from I don’t know every major fucking away game ever that mattered.
See above. May as well not have come on.

The Reds were too wasteful at the King Power, pedestrian at times and ran out of ideas towards the end. Very frustrating.

Matip deserves more – the only one that came out with any fucking credit, though Tsimikas had a decent enough first half to be fair.
Then rest were shite. Every one of them. Shite. Infuriatingly, cluelessly fucking shite. I love those lads, but seriously, wow, they were shite. Can only imagine that the complacency that seemed to have infected the whole fanbase going into the game filtered through to the players there. All of them seemed to play as though they only had to walk out on the pitch to win. Very reminiscent of a couple of the brutal games at the same time of year last season (WBA, Newcastle) that started our disaster run. Hoping this is just a blip, but I can’t help feeling like we’ve fucked the league already.
It was a poor pen…the inability to score the “gift” from the save was perhaps even worse.
No point searching for excuses, they were all collectively awful.
Mane, paradoxically brimming with self-confidence yet at the same time paralysed with
indecision and hesitancy.
Does anyone else feel that he doesn’t seem to be enjoying it very much?
Utter garbage. This team is mostly excellent but has a shitty attitude now and again when turning up for matches. Unfortunately they had it tonight, just sheer arrogance that the game was a gimme.
I mean it was like they swapped 13 or so players for competition winners tonight. Everyone looked like they were treading in treacle, there was no urgency, no sharpness, nothing.
And Jurgen, for the love of all PLEASE SHUT UP ABOUT FIXTURE CONGESTION. This team is better when playing every few days. When we have a break we absolutely stink.
It doesn’t work, its never worked, so pack it in.
TAA was dreadful. He is scouse so we can’t be honest about that.
Also: What’s with Hendo feeling he needs to shoot every ball he gets outside the penalty area 20 meters above the bar?!?!? So horribly wasteful – worse than Smicer on a bad day (which was literally every day he ever tried to hit the ball from a distance, save the Istanbul wonder strike)
