3 at the back doesn't work,we lose the midfield when it happens
Robert do not celebrity Harrison goal!!!!!!!!
Can’t wait to read what TC10 has to say about Roberts’ performance!
Did I miss something? How was that a foul by Llorente for the free kick which led to the goal? Player had him in an arm-lock - but Llorente gets a yellow and we concede the equaliser! 😡😡😡
22 gets 2 in 22 😆
MacWhite - officially a MDT legend!!
Very true Ormsby, no foul by Llorente at all.
But we did start the second half on the back-foot.
We showed a lot of determination not only to work our way back into it but to actually dominate. Fantastic goal from Dallas.
Back four did well today, Firpo looked a different player.
Harrison looked far more lively and the goal will boost his confidence
Meslier made a couple of big saves at 0-0, could have been better positioned for the free-kick.
Roberts led the line well first half, looks like he'll be out for some time.
Joffy is gonna be so good, what a pass to James.
Happy New Year.
Three very well deserved points. Some outstanding performances today - Dallas in particular, best player on the pitch, edging out Forshaw who between them won the battle for midfield. Great goal by Harrison who was unlucky to be substituted. And Gelhardt has surely proved he should be playing from the start. It was also one of Firpo's better performances. The disappointments - Roberts' slip said it all. Also, I felt Meslier was too slow to react for their goal.
I worry about the ramifications after the Lowton incident. Puts a dampener on the result and an opportunity for the wider world to tar all us fans with the same brush.
The FA will throw the book at us for this.
Yeah Soop, as you say we can expect another hefty fine for failing to control the crowd. Hope the club can find the culprit and get him banned for a fair period.
How stupid can one be. No place in football for that.
So I get to go again then?! Mac will be back! Lol👍
I thought Firpo was great going forward today. He is definitely on an upward trajectory and I hope he will continue to get better and better for us.
Dallas back to his best too and a great finish.
Joffy...I fookin love him, he just makes things happen and unlike when Roberts has the ball, you just know something good is coming.
Forshaw worth a mention too for a very solid performance and Raph a little off his game again I thought.
Still, a very important win and decent performance with lots of individual improvements.
Onwards and upwards👍
Brilliant result that. Great atmosphere, buzzing all round.
I'm just going to sit back with a beer now and look at the league table and wait for the onset of covid symptoms. Now would be a good time to get it out of the way with no league game for 2 weeks.
fantasic win well done mac
Well done Mac and look forward to an extended run in the league.... 👍⚽
Great win overall and the only time Bumley worried us was the first 15mins of the 2nd half and long balls from their keeps.... even then Llorente and Koch were EXCELLENT.
Ayling and Firpo were great overall and even Dallas, Klich and Forshaw were very good overall.... not a good spine for a Premier team though and all teams have a good game in them. It's the CONSISTENCY that will get us into European places which is very possible with 3 quality signings over this and the summer transfer window....
Geldhart was like a breath of fresh air when he came on just because of the potential....James created a few chances as well 👏
We never have any great hopes for Roberts and confidence goes from the crowd VERY early doors.
He didn't do anything of note apart from get in a couple of CORRECT positions which a forward should do!!
Even his booking came because he played a 6yd sideways pass under NO pressure about 2yds wide!!
The only time Roberts NEARLY headed the ball was on the end of the wall with his feet rooted to the floor from Cornets free kick goal....!!
I WANT him to be a legend for us but is simply not good enough.... the only thing I'm saying is that I want an upgrade on him and surely NOBODY can disagree!!
Great overall team performance with quick fast flowing football 👏👏👏👏
The only good thing about Roberts today was he managed to collect another booking which rules him out of the next 2 premiership games. Honestly, I've tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and he tries very hard, but it's just not there. The difference when Joffa comes on is inescapable, he knows were strikers should be consistently and not just now and then. I really think he is good Championship material, but that move would need to be made by the club unless Joffa becomes the number 2 behind Bambi.
So the good points, Ayling, Dallas, Forshaw, Llorente , Klich bang on form. Firpo good going forward and starting to understand that he also needs to defend better. Rapha had his moments too.
James offers us a different dynamic in that he has raw pace, even faster than Harrison!. The only thing I'm not sure about is whether he should always start or become our favourite impact player from the bench.
I'm not really bothered about the cup game against the 'Ammers, or indeed the league game against them, although something out of the game would be nice. Focus our efforts against Villa & Newcastle and get to mid table.
Well Done Mac!!!
Keep the run going!
Only managed to watch the first half but I thought Roberts did well. Got in good positions, got his shots of, worked hard and closed their defenders down.
His booking was never a booking! Please just watch it back again. He wins the ball cleanly and Lowton goes in to plant a boot on him, mistimes and gets hit. The falls on the floor as if he has been maimed but then manages to carry on for rest of game with no reaction.
LUFC players do not act in this shoddy way to get a player booked.
"Only managed to watch the first half but I thought Roberts did well. Got in good positions, got his shots of, worked hard and closed their defenders down".
I finally managed to watch the full game today on LUTV and have to that Roberts played a lot better than he was given credit for on Radio 5 Live yesterday, especially in the first half. Still do not believe that he will ever be an out and out striker, but credit where credit is due.
Prem League booking do not count in the cups. So Llorente and Roberts could play in the FA Cup game v Spammers but will miss the league game.
Both bookings IMO were highly dubious v Burnley.
Hopefully Pascal and Bamford + Rodrigo will be back for the league game.
In the cup game, I hope MB give Joffy and Bate a chance, even if off the bench.
Spammers have a couple of injuries with first choice CBs Zouma and Ogbonna unlikley to play in either game and Benrahma off to the AFCON cup but they have a huge squad so will not be impacted.
They also have to play Norwich in between us so hope tiredness gets the better of them in our Prem Game. I dont really care about the FA Cup. We wont win it so it is a needless distraction.
Apologies to whoever is doing the MDT
What I really, really enjoyed, except for the win itself, obviously, was the honest and quite wild celebrations by the goal scorers. Dallas’ interaction with the fans was legendary.
So was the Bielsa Hug when James scored! No fist pumping, running up and down the sidelines or pounding his chest to play up to the fans, just a quiet, warm embrace for his assistant!
