    Sam probably sees this as an exercise. He knows if they can keep it relatively unembarassing, this is ammo for the team to get on board with his ideas moving forward.

    Struggle to see how it won't be a pretty big scoreline in favour of Liverpool though. You still need to offer some form of threat.

    Mane seems to be in a "sub me after an hour will you, c*nt" kinda mood :laugh: right up for it.

    Ajayi was colossal in Albions draw at Man City but looks terrified of the front three here.

    Is it Ajayi that is trying to wrestle Mane every time a cross is about to be put in?

    Look how many Liverpool players were back for that counter. Superb work ethic.

    WBA have no intention of trying to score. It's just a keep the scoreline down tactic by them.

    Probably only go for last 5 minutes if it’s 1/0.

    Writing him off after 1.5 games.

    Feels like a 0-0, Big Sam knows that he can't get anything from this game, so just doesn't want to do the goal difference any damage.

    If he gets any deeper, he'll reach the bottom of the Mersey.

    I don't think I've seen a team have every outfield player spend so much time behind the ball, even at Anfield. I understand teams need to play to their strengths, but it's been some cowardly, insipid shit from West Brom and fat Sam. They've not even tried.

    Still, you could argue it's worked to an extent with Liverpool only being a goal up despite taking the piss in every department. We really should be at least a couple up. Remarkably we've had one shot on target.

    Come out, quickly get another and put it to bed.

    Liverpool sold a player with 0 Premier League starts for over £20m this summer. Aston Villa spent £70m net this summer, Chelsea spent nearly £200m net this summer. Leeds spent nearly £100m net this summer. City bought two CBs for a combined £100m.

    Thins have shifted a bit, but the idea clubs aren't spending money is tosh.

    Exactly. Still well in the game at half-time. All it takes is one breakaway or a set piece in the second half and they could go home with a point.

    Smart management, especially with the personnel at his disposal.

    Rhian Brewster is a highly rated homegrown player who is a long term investment for a team that is probably going down.

    With the greatest of respect, Naby Keita hasn't really 'done anything' since joining Liverpool. If you get £50m back for him, it's just further proof of the witchcraft you guys pull of.

    You'll get £25m tops for him from Dortmund.

    Villa and Chelsea are poor examples. FFP has been relaxed and they both have billionaire owners with money to burn.

    Think Liverpool's intensity dropped off a bit. Allardyce will be super happy with that scoreline. Next goal is important, if Liverpool get one early then I reckon it's done.

    Brewster was also on a modest wage, Keita is on 100k odd a week.
