I once saw Peterborough draw 0-0 with Halifax on a Tuesday night. It was about zero degress and it was so boring that me and a mate wound up having a Bovril drinking competition, which ended up about 7-7.

It was still better than this.

Can’t argue with that.
The quality of football you saw that night was probably better too.

Tuanzebe looked ok though, and Maguire was our most threatening player when he came forward into midfield, Fred might as well pack his bags now.

Damp squib Fred.
Sideways or back passing Fred.
He had so many touches in such good positions and did nothing effective with them

Interesting line-up. I'm not sure what the formation will be - three at the back or Rodri at LB?

Games between us and LFC often produce results that are against the form. Hopefully today is in that trend.
A win by a 2 goal margin today moves us up to 7th

It may not be likely, it may not happen, and I wouldn’t bet on it happening, but the gap between 6th and 18th is very small.

A more realistic 4-0 defeat puts you in the bottom five to add balance.

Fiery Fred having his best game by far that I have watched.

Thanks for pointing that out Arb.

As it happens that was the most encouraging display for quite some time. Well worth a point, wouldn’t have been a travesty if we’d won.

Fred and Perrera turned up today. Let’s see f they can repeat that effort against Norwich.

I enjoyed that today . Certainly deserved the point but a shame you didn't hold out for the win. VAR was fun as well Smiley

AWB was getting so much space going forward, he really  needed to do better. If he’d have had more confidence and quality on the day we could have really punished Liverpool’s dreadful first half performance.

Fred and Perrera really put a shift in and played just about as well as I think it’s possible for them to play. McT unfortunately didn’t have his best game, especially when he could have rolled James in 1v1 in the first half but had a game shot from edge of 18 yard box instead.

Defence was solid, Young especially played very well. Cops for some very unnecessary flack a lot of times.

Great to see Rashford on the scoresheet. That will do his confidence a world of good. Now if only he would stop jumping and ducking when the ball gets near his head we might have a player.

James was class again. A real buzz when he gets the ball. He really is so quick but unlike rashford used to he can actually take the ball with him and not run past. Quality end product from him too.. he’ll have w great future.

The obvious negative was that united probably played somewhere around their peak vs a Liverpool team firing at 3/10 and we still only scraped a draw. If the game goes on 5-10 mins longer we concede another, maybe more. It’s apparent how big the gulf in class is but end of the day we took a point  and stopped their win streak. Good day.

Interesting take

I particularly liked this line about the Glazers

 a set of disengaged vulture capitalists for whom this grand old footballing house is a leaky roofed global ATM, the cash cow that just won’t die.
