Really don't see it with Neco Williams. Don't think he'll make the grade here.

Same here, always felt a little premature that he was built up so much on the back of a couple of admittedly good initial games.

Fair play. It takes balls to pretend you haven’t heard the whistle in an empty stadium.

Along with chipping the ball over our defence with not a single team mate ahead of him as soon as the whistle you didn’t hear was blown.

I can’t really disagree with the team selection - after rightly prioritising the game against Leicester, players needed to be rested. That always means a risk in the CL. The disappointment for me is the lack of an obvious game plan. Combine that with some poor individual performances and this is hardly a surprise. Annoying that we switched off so badly before the subs were made.

How the fuck do we go from that performance against Leicester to this utter fucking dog shite in 3 days? 


This was a slightly weaker team on paper probably, but the main difference is clearly the total lack of intensity in our play today. 
 

Intensity is our identity Klopp says, and Leicester never had the chance to breathe against us, while today it’s been totally missing.

By removing our attacking width from both full backs....asking a 34 year old to play a 2nd game in a few days, by having our 10th different pairing at centre half, by Gini being dead on his feet after playing about 4 games prior to tonight in a week or so and having nobody to replace him due to injuries and by having Divock Origi in front 3 as opposed to Jota or Firmino....

Don't know if I've ever seen Mane play so poorly. Been a complete Glen Johnson out there. Pass it to them, try a flick that will never come off, or fall over. Total Pogba.

Some comical bed wetting going on in here.

Not at all.

 

Either play full strength, get the job done and then take players off or just write the game off and don't play anyone.

 

Waste of energy for Mane, Matip, Gini and co who are players who could have done with a rest.

 

Origi ahead of Mini is just fucking dumb.

Also, these just want it more tonight.

They've been very good to be fair. Much more like I expected them to be in the away leg.
