Keita not coming through quickly has been a massive problem this season as I think the £50m or so we invested in him was supposed to solve the midfield creativity problem by having him run at and commit defenders.  Maybe now is the time to turn to him either as a starter or as the regular 60 minute sub if we're not winning.  

the thing is, both he and fabinho imo have looked way, way off the pace when the game is frantic (fabinho less so as he at least seems more comfortable with the physical side, but for instance i thought he was shite yesterday). and these games are going to be high tempo all the way until we hit the odd team "on the beach", maybe not quite as frantic as yesterday, but they won't be a stroll. i wouldn't let keita near the burnley game we have coming up.

He was afforded a lot of time on the ball vs Munich and did nothing with it. Has he even got back on the pitch since substituted for Milner in that game? Doesn't speak well for him. It's a nightmare because Lallana should have been put out of his misery 18 months ago and Keita was the natural, superior successor. 0 goals and 0 assists from the pair of them: 80 million in fees and presumably c 300k per week in wages. Disastrous. Milner has positively sparkled by comparison.

That might be one of the worst sub appearances I've ever seen yesterday. Subs aren't supposed to make the team worse when they come on. 

 

That being said, I thought he was terrific against Watford and has generally been a good player during his time here. 

 

However, it speaks volumes about Klopp's feelings about Keita that he's still ahead of him in the pecking order. Keita simply has to be trusted and given a run of games if he's got any chance of making it here. If he can't produce against the likes of Burnley and Fulham, what the fuck have we spent 50m on?

Imagine 160 grand in your bank every Friday.  Rightmove would be like browsing the kindle store rather than looking at a lifetime bill around your neck.  Pfff god damn it.

I hope he pays tax so halve that. Still wouldn't be on your uppers mind.

He was really good against Watford, albeit only lasting 70 minutes. I suspect that he's not up to the task of playing two games a week any more.

 

He’s the fittest player at the club according tests in preseason.

No worries mate, I just enjoy running through most games again and making a few gifs to post here. But thanks for the comment.

I'm just like most on here. I'm desparate to see us win the league again, its been far too long.

Hopefully kept as an impact sub now.    Really changed the game along with Henderson on Friday night.   

He's generally been a shit sub. Hendo though may have found himself a new role as a crazed 20 minute midfielder.

This thread title should be changed.  It doesn't sit right with me portraying Big Games James as some mercenary money-grabber.  He's the antithesis of your modern footballer.

Says it all about who he is that Souness just told a story of how an 18 year old Milner sought him out and pulled him on saying he’d never win anything with a team of James Milners.

 

What a man he is, what a pro and what a class player. Be an absolute travesty if he were to leave the club without silverware here.

    • They didn’t. It’s just an excuse for a series of poor decisions they made which steadily saw them decline. But why look inwardly at your own failings when you can blame your favourite obsession.
    • I've no idea but after Heysel did Everton have an exodus of all their best players? Linekar joined the year after didn't he. How come no other club had their team break up or did they.
    • Shut the fuck up, you little Manc rat. He’s going nowhere.
    • Gary Neville feels that Mo Salah is ready to move on from Liverpool and join either Real Madrid of Barcelona in the near future.

      Salah has had an extraordinary career with the Reds since arriving on Merseyside in the summer in 2017 scoring 90 goals in 140 games for the Reds.

      While his record-breaking first season will stand the test of time, he has certainly played a major part in the success of the club in the last two campaigns winning more individual honours along the way.

      There has been speculation about suitors for Sadio Mane and more recently Roberto Firmino, it seemed like any talk about Salah departing had gone a tad quiet.

      But Neville put it back on the agenda saying that a lack of love from the fans for the Egyptian superstar could come into play when he decides what his next move might be.   The Mirror ( via Sky Sports) reported the former Man United stalwart as saying:  

      “I said 18 months ago I thought Mo Salah would leave Liverpool.

      "I think it's a little bit more simple in the sense of why Liverpool fans maybe don't demonstrate that love for Salah, and it's affinity and loyalty.

      “I think there's a feeling that he wants to go and play at Real Madrid, he'll go to Barcelona - he'll take the big move.

      Neville said that shouldn’t be seen as a criticism of Salah, it’s just that some players want to test themselves on the continent.

      “I played with David Beckham, I played with Ruud van Nistelrooy, I played with Cristiano Ronaldo - they wanted to aspire to win the Ballon d'Or, they wanted to be at Real Madrid, they wanted to be up in lights and play at the biggest clubs in the world.

      “I think there's a feeling: affinity, loyalty, will he leave us?   "I think he could.   "I think he is ultimately using Liverpool potentially as a stepping stone for his career. 

      “He has aspirations to be [at a club like Madrid or Barca].

      “Let's be honest, Real Madrid and Barcelona for a lot of players are the pinnacle."

      You often see this thought process with South American players and the Reds have been the victim of it with Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Javier Mascherano to name a few.

      Judging from a fair distance away, Mo seems to like the quiet life, much removed from all the frenzied limelight a move to the ‘big two’ in Spain would bring.

      He keeps it pretty low-key, spending time with his family and generally seems happy on the pitch bonding well with his teammates.

      And then there is the fact that Liverpool are currently the best team in World Football, that is not a claim, it is a cold hard fact.

      Why would any player want to leave what Jürgen Klopp is building at this present moment, especially when he is a key member of this team?

      Or perhaps is it just a ex-rival player wanting to cause a bit of disharmony in the ranks and knowing his own team cannot contend with the Reds on the pitch at this present time.

      Knowing the mentality of this Liverpool squad, this sort of claim wouldn’t even raise a skerrick of friction.
