I blame Mane and here's why. His legitimate response to what happened a few weeks ago should not have been made in public. Salah has had an injury but the resulting commentary has affected him . I feel he is trying to put other players in at times when his first instinct is to shoot . That indecision is resulting in his timing being off like last night. Salah is in poor touch anyway and only taking on worldies and chasing lost causes . He  needs to flip it around shoot first or dead cert pass second. Ox decision making correct last night for his goal. Salah is trying too hard to pick out passes now needs back to what he did against chelsea last year . In fact the pair of them need to forget about the other and just shoot Bobby will sort the carving out of the chances. 

 

 

Did you say this in your head before writing it? 

 

This is what is happening now and it is clearly making problems for the team. Salah could have about four assists from last night instead of just one. That would have done his confidence the world of good - much more than any goals would. 

 

Everyone knows he can score goals for fun. He doesn't have to prove that. He's a great player too, he doesn't have to prove that either. He just needs to create goals and score them when appropriate to ensure the team are making the most of their chances. He's not doing that right now. But he will be fine along with the rest of the team who are all playing very well.

I see indecision in making passes and shooting. He needs to be more instinctive again do his own thing. Personally I think he has been targeted physically on the pitch and in the media ref diving etc as another poster said don't need other teammates body language fuelling jealousy/greed/discord rumours. As you say think they will be fine it would be nice to see all three clicking together at same time.

Opposition teams have learnt how to play them more effectively is the main reason they are not scoring for fun.

In turn that frustrates them and they don't pass when they should or in Salah's case try to beat one man too many.

Credit other teams adapting not look for internal fault lines. We're still winning games and Klopp is mixing up the strategy by giving Origi more time and having Ox back to add more midfield threat. Personally I would like to see us bring in another striker as Shaqiri seems a lost cause. That's easier said than done of course. Anyway most teams would still bite our hands off for our front 3 .

    • Pep is on the naughty step over in bluemoon. They are not taking his comments well about the attendance on Sunday.
    • "Having felt like he was banging his head against a brick wall, Klopp has now decided to take a stand. His post-match declaration that Liverpool will play “the kids” in their FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury Town at Anfield wasn’t an idle threat or an emotional reaction to a wretched second-half performance after seeing his much-changed side throw away a 2-0 lead.

      Instead it was a public declaration of a plan carefully agreed with Liverpool’s American owners behind the scenes last week in the event of their clash at New Meadow ending in stalemate. Klopp told Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon that he believed it was vital that all his senior players were given the full week’s rest he had promised them during the inaugural Premier League winter break regardless of the club’s ongoing participation in the FA Cup.     The club’s owners were supportive – backing the manager’s belief that it’s the best policy to maximise Liverpool’s chances of not only winning the Premier League title but also retaining the Champions League. Liverpool’s hierarchy share Klopp’s opinion that it’s ridiculous that the replay, which will take place at Anfield on February 4 or 5, falls within the winter break which the Football Association fought long and hard to be introduced in order to bolster England’s chances when it comes to major tournaments."     Above taken from piece in The Athletic...   https://theathletic.com/1558576/2020/01/27/klopp-liverpool-fa-cup-replay-winter-break-shrewsbury/
    • Fair report on what was a very poor team performance. Fully agree on the root cause - the three stooges in the centre of the field.  No enthusiam, no leadership and no common sense between them.  The total opposite to Lallana & Gomez in the last round. Shrewsbury have the second worst attack (based on goals scored) in League 1 - the top scorer has 4 goals - and Liverpool's defence made them look like Brazil in the second half.
    • This is bang on the money. I personally would like to see some of the fringe/recently injured players get game time as they patently need it, but if we don't go along that route then it gives all the haters more of a chance to see Liverpool knocked out (which they would absolutely love).   Faux fume is exactly what it is.
