General Discussion / Re: Where has that Anguissa and Joe Bryan been all season?

I said on the team selection thread that I'm sure the midfield trio we intended to play this season was the trio that played Saturday, Seri/Anguissa/Cairney, and if we can get those 3 playing well together, that's a big upgrade on the trio of Johansen/McDonald/Cairney IMO and would destroy any Championship opposition next year.

My worry with Parker is he seems to say and do all the right things but whenever he's been at the club, we seem to lose or do poorly. That trend appears to be continuing - yes it seems great for him to put an arm around Anguissa etc but that's still 3 straight losses since he took charge.

IMO Anguissa and Bryan played well yesterday but Bryan is still not the required standard and we do need far better.

Anguissa? Well I thought that was the best game I had seen him play by a mile. His interceptions were very good, he was not too wasteful with the ball, and actually could have been braver with a few more forward passes, and all in all was a decent display. But there are three thoughts about him. First, I suspect the way Liverpool play may have suited him, counter intuitive perhaps but Liverpool are not the standard blood and thunder style. Second, it was a good performance based on what we have seen so far and he still made a few basic errors especially when he picked up the ball and started running forward. and third can he keep it up consistently.

In the end I was really p-leased to see him at last start to do well, I still happen to think it was still below the level expected for a player with his reputed price tag, but a major step in the right direction and I hope he keeps it up!

The best thing about Anguissa is that you can see that he is adapting to the Premiership. Early on this season I could not believe his play, as he distributed the ball almost continually to the opposition. Now he treats the ball like it is a hot potato and often passes backwards, but there is a real improvement. He was my man of the match yesterday for his display across the whole 90 minutes.

but that's just moving the ball quickly.  Seri does it, too.  You're meant to.  Xavi and Busquets did the same (and no I'm not comparing them).   And Seri and Anguissa do tend to move the ball forwards when it's on, too, but if it isn't they keep the ball.  that's just good football.
I think that we are agreeing.  Basically my point was that Anguissa is adapting to the Premiership, realises that he does not have the time that he used to at his previous club and is not getting caught in possession as much, or making bad passes invariably to the opposition.

Prediction: Sadio Mané to dive at least THREE times and get free kicks EVERY time!

Rico made a mistake but Mané dived theactrically as predicted!  Penalty was hit at Rico also, he moved out of the way - should be Rico's last match for Fulham.

To be honest, FFC's goalkeeping this season has been rather poor.  Needs an upgrade heading into the Championship.  Our keepers (mostly Rico?) have not been sure of themselves, punching away many balls/crosses/corners/etc when it was surely clear that the ball could have been easily caught.  Lots of unnecessary punch outs tells me the keeper isn't sure of himself and hasn't taken steps to be in the right position.  Sure, a few spectacular saves here and there, but every keeper at this level makes great saves, it's expected at this level.  But moving forward, methinks FFC had better improve on their goal tending.

No, he was offside when Anguissa took the shot. A deflection off a Liverpool player doesn't change that in any way.

FM was poor IMO he was rash in his decison making, didn't get close enough quick enough to the player in possesion and stood off too far.
When he went forward he certainly took way to long and made to little effort in getting back.

Away fans who don't celebrate a Fulham goal are almost as noticeable as celebrating their own away goal.
This should cause a reaction like...
"Oi, what's a matter with you, not celebrating our goal, you must be away supporters ?
What I think got the goat with this miserable old goat (same age as me and I get grumpy even on TV
when any opposition scores against us!!)  was that he was dissapointed and angry when both their goals
were scored, and turned to the 3 blatant  Liverpool fans sat in brightred shell suits, (with I'm a Liverpool
supporter on the back)  Afro hair cuts, huge medallions and obvioiusly stolen tax discs.
No doubt they were singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" all afternoon, in harmony with the Father singing Bass,
the Son singing Baritone and the daughter, Soprano.
They probably all shouted "Tossers" to all around them, when we scored
and "We Geggin in" (proving they were gate-crashing)  or shut up "Gob Shite"
and had a case of Liverpool Tart beer which the 2 children sneaked in.

TAKE ME HOME MAF wrote...I can understand why a fan would not be able to contain themselves if this was a last game of the season, a last minute winner etc. - but a nothing goal which was expected in the fixture I never can understand the need to celebrate it.
I'm assuming this was said in jest  ??

No, just a father and kids who exploaded when their team scored  2 extremely important goals taking them to the top of the best league in the world. I'm sure a pole would show that a vast percentage of us would have gotten tickets for a game with that
importance and reacted as they did.

As Anguissas shot deflected up onto Ayite by a Liverpool player, should the goal of stood?
