Disagree. We will probably play more conservatively as a result and look to control games. With the Thiago - Fabinho - Henderson trio we could be mid 2010s Barcelona-esque in ball control. Relies a lot on Thiago though. Hopefully his injury isn’t bad ...

 

I hope so, I mentioned it earlier that if we keep all our other key players fit we may be ok. 

 

Klopp and his team have really got their work cut out now though!

Forgetting what a cunt Pickford is and the actual events of this, injuries do happen. The type of injury is just fucking cruel.

 

I don't care if it's not the right time, but I'm more angry with whoever decided not to bring in a centre back after selling Lovren, as well as not bringing in an upgrade for Adrian.

 

These are 2 crucial positions that turned us into trophy winners that were badly neglected this summer and there's was no excuse for not sorting them out.

 

Just got to hope that Matip can stay fit until January and that we're still in contention for the league and in the Champ league quarters.

Clutching at straws but do we know it's deffo cruciate? Just says ligaments on the club release with no time frame. I don't believe a lot of the stuff coming from the other so called news outlets.

Klopp is a great manager, he will tweak us tactically and I’m sure we’ll be fine. As great as Virgil is, it’s not like he’s our only world class player, we’ve a team full of them. We need to not feel sorry for ourselves and just go out and show our class.

Absolute comical that we never signed a replacement for Lovren in the summer and now we're in this mess.

Even if we did sign a replacement we would be in this mess. A replacement for Lovren is easy enough, finding one for VVD not possible.

Alisson is close to returning to training and as long as there’s no reaction, he should be back in goal before the end of October. [@JamesPearceLFC]

Any schmoe can do that - we would need a top left sided CB.

Correct. If possible I thinks it’s more attack attack attack as best form of defence and Fabinho taking a defensive role for the foreseeable! Only issue our defence not the same pace in it and we will be obviously more vulnerable in the air..why Firmino regardless of form might be chosen..

 

I think less ball knocked around the back the better and whoever manages our offside line (assume Matip) needs to show some leadership fingers crossed staying fit for 2.5 months. In for a tough ride but got to ha e faith in Klopp. Could really do with positive news on Thiago??

Some good news. The West Ham or Midtjylland hopefully!

Fucking nightmare. Hope something terrible happens to Prickford, the cunt. 

 

Hopefully we get reinforcements in Jan, having just Gomez and Matip as options at the back doesn't fill me with much confidence.

I think we will struggle to challenge for the title at all now. He is the most important player in the team, the most difficult to replace. We've conceded 13 goals so far this season, and its going to be even worse without him. 

He will be difficult to replace,granted,but other players have to if possible step up and do a job,I'm certainly not giving up on retaining the title,why should we?we have a fantastic team and incredible team spirit.We need to try and keep upbeat.Other teams will lose key players to injury, its inevitable. Get well soon Virgil,COYR

He’s Everton’s goal keeper, something terrible has already happened.

Time to get behind the big man and support him every hour, day and week of his recovery. He will return stronger and better than ever.

 

Time for every other member of the squad to work even harder, and to stick together and fight for every single second of the season.

 

This will make us weaker short term but shit happens and we use it to regroup, build on and get even stronger. 
 

Imagine the day Van Dijk returns, hopefully in front of s packed Anfield. It will match the best European nights for noise and show Virgil and the rest of the world what this football club is all about.

On the bright side, at least we haven't got Lovren to come in.

 

If (I know, I know) IF Matip and Gomez can stay fit they could form a really good partnership, especially if Allison is coming back soon they'll have that reassurance behind them.

 

With the talent on the wings, in midfield and up front we're still good enough to win the league. 

 

It's a blow, but not the end of the world.

Yes, watching Spurs today they seem to have a nice balance now. Three solid central midfielders who don't do anything flashy (very different to when Ali would burst forward, or Eriksson was controlling games). Two good, but fairly ale house centre backs. Two quick fullbacks whose defensive limitations are mitigated by the midfield. Two quick, direct, forwards in Son and one of Lucas, Bergwijn, or Bale. Presumably the latter if/once he gets fit. A good if not great keeper. And then of course Kane who appears to have transformed from a quality number nine into fucking Roy of the Rovers.


Hmmm. I think you’ve forgotten to factor in that their defence is shite and they’re Spurs.

Carra sticking up for

T-rex Pickford on Sky and then even criticising Sounness for his viewpoint. Unsurprising.

How is carra possibly defending that?

Carragher winding up Souey in the SSN studio about the pickford incident, telling him to 'behave' after the tackles he'd made!

No place for Carragher saying that right now. Virgil is a really good egg on and off the pitch. Pickford may not have meant to have injured Virgil to the extent he did, but he certainly wanted to put him out of the game. He's a thug.

 

Having said that neither Souey or Keane can lecture anyone about being out of order. I loved Souness as a player and I like them both as pundits but both were x rated for nastiness at times.
