PREMIER LEAGUE | Sunday 4th December 2016
ATT: 11,183 | REF: Robert Madley | HALF-TIME: 2-0
THE GREATEST CHERRIES COMEBACK EVER?
7 THINGS WE LEARNT FROM #AFCB v #LFC
01. STEVE COOK SHOULD BE A STRIKER
Last week against Arsenal we all remember what Mr Cook did. I’m sure he’s been trying to forget it for a while. We said last week that Steve Cook would bounce back and score the winner against Liverpool. It wasn’t quite the winner and it wasn’t quite the finish we were expecting. But, his pull down and first time shot were unbelievable. If Sergio Aguero had put that in the back of the net that we would be talking about for the rest of the season. Goal of the month?
02. LIVERPOOL ARE STILL TOP CLASS
The scoreline will deflect from the fact that Liverpool were in control for the first 60-70 minutes of this game. They might have been made to look good thanks to our lack of impact on the game. Early kick-off on a Sunday, reckon a few got up a little late. But, we never gave up and Liverpool’s defence and goalkeeper couldn’t cope. Our friend at KopTalk Duncan said Karius would be a weak link. Thanks for the info.

03. THE WEE MAN IS PREMIER LEAGUE READY
Fraser probably wouldn’t have even made it onto the pitch if Stanislas hadn’t got injured (any news). When he came on we were moaning that we wanted Pugh, we miss him. But, it looks like he will have to wait his turn. Fraser immediately gave us more penetration and the Liverpool defence weren’t quite sure what to do. He was sensational. He changed the face of the game and the boss called him the ‘Wee man’. We love you Wee man.
04. BORUC BACK TO BEING BONKERS
Boruc was back and Boruc was back to his best (worst). Earlier in the season he had been in sensational form, but after his little rest he seems to gotten back to being the keeper he was. He couldn’t make up his mind what to do and when he did he made the wrong choice. We were in the South End, but we couldn’t miss the orange flash that came streaking out of goal for the second. I know we won’t be the only ones to have said this, but ‘WTF is Boruc doing out there’. Not one of his best games.
05. KLOPP IS MAD AND MAGNANIMOUS
Jurgen Klopp is a great manager and personally I f**king his antics on the touchline and yesterday he got a little more excited than usual as he squared up to the Bournemouth bench. It’s alright ‘Pretty Boy’ Tindall had it covered as long as Klopp didn’t touch the face. What we do like about Klopp is that he understands the game, he knows you won’t always win and sometimes you have to give the opposition credit. Not like that petulant moaning manchild Mourinho. F**k off and grow up.
06. ADAM SMITH IS A RIGHT WINGER
What happens when you walk onto the pitch and end up on the wrong side of the back four. You play like you have forgotten how to defend, all that turning right must have confused him. Adam Smith is a right winger and Howe needs to play him there. And after yesterday’s performance we are pretty sure he will. You know who used to like playing players out of position? Jimmy Quinn. Don’t do it Eddie.
07. EDDIE HOWE READS THE SOUTH END
We know that Eddie is the occasional reader looking for tactical inspiration. Saturday we sent out a tweet entitled ‘FAO OF EDDIE HOWE’ which went on to point out the Liverpool weak link. We are sure that Eddie Howe doesn’t base his tactical decisions on the well-informed info he reads on TFTSE. We are guessing he has a team of well paid experts for that. It’s about time that Eddie Howe got me to join that team.
