(Video) Four incidents suggest Brentford ‘stretched the rules’ during their first goal

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp faced the media after our defeat to Brentford and accused the home side of ‘stretching the rules’ during corner routines, something which many have scoffed at and believed simply isn’t true.

After over seven years of the German being charge of our club and delivering the reams of success he has in that time, surely we should at least humour his opinion and review the available footage.

Looking back on Thomas Frank’s sides opening strike that came from an Ibou Konate own goal, there are four possible moments that could easily be perceived as being possible fouls and these are:

A push in the back on Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara being blocked off, Ibou Konate being held off and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being pulled by the attacker.

All admittedly minor moments but if this is to be used to try and understand what our manager was requesting to be penalised, then these incidents could be the only things that would result in the goal being possibly disallowed.

  1. As a Bford fan, I thought it was a great game, obviously. As a longtime Lpool admirer/supporter as well, apart from 10mins at the start of each half, Lpool were only a shadow of former selves and can understand Klopp trying to deflect criticism with his comments about Bford stretching the rules, but really? It has come to that? Worrying for fans.

  2. I have no complaints of LFC falling at Brendford.I expected it coming. LFC are short in playing personel. How many years have they been battling with Man.City for Pl trophy? How many years have they been battling in Europe?All these years they used the same depthless personel. Football success doesn’t come miraculously. Alot of investment is a must. Somebody should compare money used by LFC with other clubs ever since arrival of Van Djk and others with other clubs like Man.utd etc before condemning Klop.

  3. If the money used by Man.utd had been used by LFC they (LFC) should be ruling the world by now.
