Not in the eyes of the law, but in the media. Drink driving is deplorable, the press barely mentioned it, and when they did it was in a jovial manner.

I've no problem with Klopp, but he overstepped the mark last night.

That doesn't fit the narrative.

Alternative facts.

Are we especially cursed with it though? Isn't poor refereeing a theme in any sport in any country in the world.

I don't see how there really is a solution to it, I know I couldn't make better calls when pelting down the field. It's easy after watching 20 replays and sitting in a studio, with a former referee in the back telling you what to think.

The players make it virtually impossible for refs. Stamp out on diving and feigning injuries with retrospective bans and the refs job will be much easier.

He got off lucky when it happened and he didn't kill anyone, not at court

I don't think Klopp will still be our manager come the end of the season, we are currently the worst team in the division and bereft of ideas

Didn't see the game, were inept officials the cause of this latest embarrassment?

Something is going on at the Club for the form to collapse like this. it's almost Mourinho-Chelsea last season like,where talented and trophy winning players downed tools till they got him out.

As a Palace fan, I must beg to differ!

We were just awful all over the pitch. No idea why Can & Lucas started ahead of Gini and Gomez.

We showed no idea of how to break down the parked bus and the first goal changed the gamw

It's crazy how less than 2 months ago this team was cutting open teams at will. Quick passing and movement just mesmerising opposition teams.

They are back to looking like the Woy Rodgers slugfests. Something is going on at the club for this sort of dip in form.

Havent seen the Hull game yet, but for the last 4-5 games, all teams have been doing is 2 banks of 4, and catching us on the break We are playing with no width and trying to go through the cente and nothing else. When we were on that run a few months ago, teams were playing more open, but they have figured us out now.

So for the money the club are paying Klopp and the players, if that's how other teams are setting up against them, surely there is a plan B for Liverpool.

If seems to be a popular way to frustrate teams like yours who have loads of possession. When you get a chance, you have to take it. Hull played the same way against us and it was very effective and the few chances we got, we wasted.

You need a proven goal scorer.

Even a proven goal scorer would struggle with the lack of chances we are creating
