Naby Keita

If Keita starts v Villa, I'm fucking the game off.


What message does that send to Jones, Ox, Shaqiri, and Milner?!


Fuck that!

After a couple of minutes last night I had the exact same feeling as I did against Villa. In both games we passed the ball out of play under no pressure and played simple passes straight to them right from the start. Naby obviously played in both but he wasn't the one passing it to an advertisement board. If Adrian was in goal last night spreading panic that game could have been 7 as well.


So is it just a coincidence that Naby was at the scene of the crime twice? Klopp whipped him off both times which would suggest otherwise but to my eyes he was no worse than anyone else, its just he has no credit in the bank. I'd go as far as to say he was better than Gini and Fab in the first half, both of which had their worst ever games (more like worst ever halves) for us. Logic says his presence must make the machine malfunction but as I had said above the malaise had set in straight from the kick off in both games and it was the other side of the pitch where we couldn't kick a ball straight. 

I don't know if you can say that is any more than a coincidence that he played both last night and villa. He played palace too. What's not a coincidence is he's given us next to nothing time and again and every time you feel klopp puts a lot of trust in him, he fails to deliver. 


All the midfield were shocking on Tuesday, but as you say, keita has nothing in the bank.

I was one of the vanishingly small crowd who thought he may eventually come good here, but it's clear he's a shadow of the player we thought we were getting. Given the cost, I think he may actually be the worst signing in this club's history.


A rich man's Salif Diao.

He's no salif. If he out in half the effort salif did, he might be a regular in the team.

He started against FC Midtjylland, got subbed after 61 minutes.





That looks a bit like klopp thinks he can't to it in the league.

The stats give the impression that Naby benefits from the higher tempo game that we saw when Klopp first arrived, rather than the more controlled possession game that we're trying to play.


These stats obviously can't quantify the effects of the injuries that Naby has had whilst with us. He only missed 3 games with Leipzig due to injury. 3 games in 2 seasons! (He missed double the number of games due to suspension in those 2 seasons - 3 for a straight red, with 1 for a sending off for 2 bookable offenses, and 2 due to an accumulation of yellow cards).

I'm not convinced we're trying to play controlled possession, I think that's a byproduct of being fucking shit in midfield for months.
