Mane

Coutinho

Firmino

Lallana

Henderson

 

Reckon that's our best 5 players in order

Probably in terms of ability but firminho's lack of consistency puts him way down the list for me.

Needless to say, my list would be different.

 

Mane

Lallana

Milner

Coutinho

Clyne

 

before you all start hooting that Coutinho can score from 25 yards etc - let me remind you all that his hit rate for good games is about 1 in 10.  Quality of players is not about what they can do when everything is going for them, it's what they deliver consistently.  And he delivers mediocrity far more consistently than he can deliver excellence.  

 

that said, I'd happily swap them all for L Suarez.

Gini was my MOTM Monday. He is similar to Hendo insofar as much of what he does is missed by many observers

 

It's probably missed because there's hardly any of it actually happening. He makes the fewest passes out of all our midfielders, there's loads of times he's barely involved in play at all.

countinho is the most overrated player we have had in many a year

 

 

he is.  People confuse what he may have done a few times with what he actually does on a regular basis.  Brief moments of undoubted excellence and skill in between weeks and months of lazy/weak/wasteful dirge.  But because he's cute and Brazilian, all that gets overlooked.  

 

He's like a less good Luis Garcia, and I never rated him particularly highly either.   If he does find out how to perform consistently, I reserve the right to change my judgement though.  But I won't take no shizzle from those who say 'oh, he's always been a genius', because he quite clearly has been less than stellar this season, just like last season tbh.

6 golas and 5 assist in 17 games. One of the top dozen attackers in the league. Playing brilliantly when injured.

He was playing brilliantly at the start of the season. Taking him a long time to get back to anything like that form.

MOTM where Coutinho is concerned should be regarded as a nebulous concept.  The fact that he is in the starting lineup is enough to declare him MOTM for many.

nope. We've seen plenty of equally abject displays with teams waltzing through us at will when Henderson's played. He's part of the problem.

You have a massive chip on your shoulder regarding Henderson,it really is silly. I am not saying Henderson is a world beater as he would merely be a compliment to a younger Gerrard,or a squad player if we had any of that ilk,but we play much,much better when he's there and I have no doubt about this.

Mine wouldn't be too different, probably replace clyne with Henderson as I think clyne flies under the radar with his defensive lapses. And firmino might make it on there because we defend from the front better with him up top although he isn't contributing enough offensively.

Mane goes missing often but can blow any team away when he feels like it

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”
