Tis the Liverpool Way.

You've got folks on here who laugh at the loons on Everton's GOT forum for doing the same thing.

Looking round this forum today, you wouldn't think we've a proven track record with loads of our players. The forwards and Gini all getting slated while everyone heaps praise on Thiago. I find it really weird how quickly our supporters dismiss the value of players who have proven their worth and a lad who's barely kicked a ball for us, who's played 5 or 6 games and we've barely scored while he's on the pitch, who was completely fucking dominated by our midfield when we played against him is lauded like he's the 2nd fucking coming of Maradona. It is really bizarre. 

It is probably because people know just how good these players can be and the form now is just so terrible.

they're not getting the ball into them in the right spaces. Yesterday Firmino could and should have scored imo (but then he's been a bit like that since his injury in April 19), but Salah and Mane had 2 and 3 players around them every time because we don't get the ball into them fast enough - they can't help the ball coming through. So our fans happily go "our forwards are shit, Gini is shit", but then get on their knees and worship the bloke who's job it is to create from midfield and we've barely scored a goal while he has been doing it. Get our main lads back into midfield and you see a completely different side and you see our forwards getting more chance. The amount of chances we create as a team from getting the ball quickly into our front lads or getting it towards them and the press winning the 2nd ball is incredible. The ball is now getting in slower and there's no midfield press when we don't win the 1st ball or it gets pinched off the forwards toes. We are just not pinning in sides, we are dominating the ball, but it's mostly side to side shit 30 to 40 yards from goal. Our ability to play vertical passes and then follow them in for the scraps has completely disappeared.  

 

I haven't looked at the heat maps of the full backs either, but I would be shocked if they're not 10 yards deeper than before we lost VVD.
