Brighton (a) 12/1/19 EPL

Recommended Posts

Iceman did inbox me and ask me to swerve his and start this. Back to winning ways please Reds. I reckon we will see Fabinho next to VVD which will be interesting. Fabinho was very good last night. Got rid , none of this fancy stuff. Growing into a very good asset for us him. 

 

Fail to win here and we are all of a sudden in a bit of a mess so a complete attacking performance needed. These are shite anyway so pit them to be asap. Settle the nerves and get back into the groove. 

 

Keeper, back 4 (with Fabinho) and front 3 pick themselves. In the middle I'd go Wijnaldum, Keita (key him playing even though he was shit last night) Henderson in the middle. Could even see him playing Lallana over Henderson. What Henderson lacks in end product, he makes up in energy and we will need that on Saturday. Shaqiri on the bench for playing more like Shakira last night apart from his free-kick. 

 

Into these Reds *

People on RAWK saying VVD is injured - hopefully it is nothing but fucking hell we have a problem if it is.

 

I can only assume it is this Klopp comment that is fueling that talk:

 

Klopp said: “I had to make these [9] changes. A few players were really ill and then in the last session we lost Lallana with a minor thing, but it’s enough [to rule him out]. Hendo had something from the Man City game. Virg cannot play; he is at home and hopefully it is nothing but he has played all the games so far.”.”

As you say if Fabinho plays CB Kieta will be the key to beating this lot ball on the ground , driving from midfield short passes with front three. Not that crap we witnessed tonight but with Henderson injured he needs to step up.

Its all well and good him marauding forward with the ball but his end product is shite. He has a chance to put Salah in at the end last night and his pass was far too heavy it just went out. Badly needs game time as there is obvious quality there.

I think Klopp is playing a dangerous game keeping Lallana on, knowing how injury prone he is. Same with Lovren, if he decides not to use this window to sign a rotation defender.

Having unreliable fringe players is a risky business - i know Jan is a difficult one to do good business in but I really feel an addition or two could be the difference between maybe winning the title and fading away/falling short against unreal opposition.

 

Even if it is just good experienced and reliable cover and is moved on in Summer - again i know that is not easy to do though.

The night Lanana is needed. Out again. VVD was sick was he not?

Possibly, may just have been cover for 'I want to rest him and I don't want the FA crawling up my arse' for playing a weakened team unnecessarily.

Other sides are managing their fringe players well enough. Although perhaps the chips are falling their favour when it comes to Cup draws. Arsenal vs Man Utd next round is tough on them though.

 

January has provided us with some of our best players over the years. Coutinho was January, van Dijk also. Was Suarez too? Then again, perhaps so was Andy Carroll...

That’s what I thought.

I think our 'problem' is our fringe players have too many injury prone and simply not up to it amongst their number.

 

I think the drop off in quality and reliability from our best team to a rotated team is more dramatic than any of our rivals.

Thankfully/ hopefully most will be off in the summer and replaced.

I'd like to think so but we've been saying this for years. Nobody will touch them because a, they are shite and b, they are on stupid money and eat up potential signings' wages.

Moreno, Sturridge, Markovic out of contract. We will get money for Lallana and Origi, even Mignolet. 

Anyone is better than Moreno, surely can be replaced for a reasonable cost. Back up arl arse for Mongo mkII in goal. Wilson for Lallana, Brewster in for Origi.

Easy this lark.

Reminder that Michael Edwards is a miracle worker who has, to take a couple of examples, sold Dominic Solanke and Jordon Ibe for enough money to pay for Mohamed Salah.

    • Spurs seem to be having a defensive clearout. Aside from the fact that it's about time some of their better players (like Eriksen) get linked elsewhere they way all our better players always seemed to until recently, they'd have to spend big on a number of defenders. £30m seems to be the going rate for potential, rising to about £50m for English players thanks to the English tax, and since the likes of Trippier, Alderweireld and Rose have all been linked with moves away, that's probably £100m minimum just to stand still.   I'm surprised that Atletico are pushing for Trippier at £20m when Dani Alves (although older and probably wanting more money) is still available for free.
    • Didn't that 'esk' fella say they've spent £1m a month so far on plans for the stadium, if I was Meis I'd have all that too and be laughing all the way to the bank.    Why don't they also claim that the new stadium will also solve world hunger, cause world peace and bring in an era of complete nuclear disarmament, doesn't sound so far fetched when you see what bitters think.    So a stadium by a sewerage works, a team that is mainly mid-table, who will use that stadium probably 20 out of 365 days will solve all of Liverpool's problems in that area. What of the new issues that taking that stadium away from Goodison might cause?   Actually, I don't buy into their begging tactics. The area around Anfield (including around their wooden hut) benefits more from us than them right now. We (according to them) bring in far more visitors to the city and generally a lot more often than them. Costco probably has more visitors in a year than Everton would at the dock, and they'd spend more and they'd undoubtedly leave happier.      Admit it, they pick up that massive Main Stand that winds you up so much you blocked off part of your ground so your fans wouldn't have to look at it. They wouldn't want them waking up, realising that they are being taken for mugs.
