But Kieta doesn't do enough. He a good game in the cup final but today I hardly remember him touching the ball. 

 

He just can't get close enough to players to make a tackle either, because he's slow and physically weak. Our midfield had huge gaps today, and he's part of that midfield. 

 

I read somewhere we didn't beat another top 4 team this season, that isn't because of our attack or defence. We need to upgrade/replace a few of them and Kieta has had plenty of chances now. We can win another title or two under Klopp if we sign two high quality, mobile midfielders. That will make the difference in those big games because all the other pieces are in place.

 

Completely agree with this, the lad is our 3rd most expensive signing of all time and offers incredibly little, I think he is out of his depth physically in the premier league, the Thiago loss for Saturday is a huge problem and midfield is an area we really need to reinforce in the summer if we are going to have another tilt at the cup competitions (given City are likely to spend their way to the title again).

 

There also seem to be a billion twitter/social media weirdos who absolutely love Keita and I really don't understand why.

He's been a massive disappointment of a signing.

 

Although he's been a lot better the second half of the season it's obviously a very low bar. It's such a shame as those youtube videos of him when in Germany looked excellent.

We need to sell him but probably won't because of the fee we paid for him. Plus Klopp seems loyal to him when Keita does very little to repay that loyalty. 

 

I doubt we would get more than £25m for him. Him and Ox need to be sold. 

 

Thiago may be injury prone but he offers a lot when he is fit.

I’ve just read that indeed. It’s inside an article about F Perez and his plans after the M’Bappé’s fiasco. 
 

Real are desperate to get Tchouameni but he has reached personal agreements with us and his preference is to come to Liverpool.

 

In another article though, PSG are said to want him too and it’s part of the deal with M’Bappé.

 

And L’Equipe says Monaco want 100 M€ ….

 

Don’t shoot the messenger ….

It says €80m here.

Would he get in ahead of Fab, Thiago and Hendo? I doubt it. 

You'd have to question why we'd go and target a player, desperately wanted by Madrid, costing 100m, and he's not good enough to get ahead of Hendo and we don't think he's a starter. Still, if you doubt it then that's good enough for me. He's dogshit.

He looks a real solid midfielder, and he’s a nice size to him but he doesn’t look not fantastic going forward so if we play him in Hendo’s role as the right sided CM, I don’t see how it would improve us going forward. I don’t watch Ligue 1 so I’m basing my view on YouTube videos and @3 Stacks‘s  comments. Here’s one.

This doesn’t really have much to do with anything said previously. You’d think we’d play him if we targeted him and paid 100m for him. I dunno. I’m not part of the recruitment team. They seem to know what’s up.

You might see more variations on a double pivot with 4 up top (either in a 3+1 or a 2 wide + 2 upfront) if we sign someone like Tchouameni.

That's true and it makes more sense. Especially if we keep 5 starting 11 quality forwards.

He doesn’t look as capable as Hendo going forward, so you’d think he’d make us worse offensively if we play him in his place. You believe we would play him before Hendo in that attacking right sided CM role, I’m telling you that I’m not convinced that we should, based on videos I’ve seen of his. He’s certainly not getting in the team ahead of Fabinho or Thiago.

Hope so. Looks mint. 
 

 

He’s more of the type I’d look at to replace Hendo.

We usually see at least one major tactical tweak each summer so I wouldn't cling too dearly to a specific role in the team.

 

This year it seemed like the Elliot/Trent/Salah triangle to create overloads on the right hand side was going to be a thing but it largely died with Elliot's injury.

Yeah that’s a fair challenge.

I had to stop there. I draw the line at people telling me what I believe, especially when it’s made up. I said nothing about where he would play.

I might have misinterpreted your original response then. Could you please clarify the below post?

    • Gerrard in this team would make Kevin De Bruyne look like a bum. He'd be the best player in the league by a mile.   Tactical discipline wouldn't be a problem for him because he wouldn't be playing for a defensively obsessed manager. I get where the whole "Gerrard isn't tactically disciplined" thing comes from, its because Rafa spoonfed that to people off the record for years.   Stevie was too swashbuckling to play centre mid in his system, but he'd be unreal playing in Klopp's.   Another factor in Gerrard's supposed tactical weakness was that he was often playing in shit teams where he needed to force the issue because nobody else would be capable of it. No point him sitting midfield and watching nothing happen in front of him. Of course he's not going to do that. Doesn't mean he has no tactical discipline, it just means he's a winner.   He played right back and was brilliant. He played holding midfielder and was brilliant. He played right midfield and was brilliant. He's since become a manager who builds his teams on being organised and defensively sound.   Gerrard in a midfield with Fabinho and either Thiago or Hendo would be un-fucking-believable.   And besides, there'd be nothing stopping us going with the same 4-2-3-1 he played in when he was just behind Torres.   If I could add any player from our history to this current team it's Gerrard. Even ahead of Suarez, and you know how much I love Suarez.
    • he newly appointed Chancellor and Warwickshire MP Nadhim Zahawi has created a sprawling £100 million property portfolio, along with his wife and their companies, the Mirror has reported. Mr Zahawi, who represents Stratford-upon-Avon, previously worked as Education Secretary, and before that rose to prominence as vaccine minister, helping to deliver the Government's rollout of the jab. © PA Nadhim Zahawi leaving 10 Downing Street following the resignation of Rishi Sunak yesterday His new role comes following the resignation of Rishi Sunak who quit as Chancellor having lost confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Mr Zahawi came to the UK aged nine after being born in Iraq to a Kurdish family, who fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.   Believed to be one of the richest politicians in the House of Commons, estimates of his net worth range from £30 million to £100 million. He has refused to confirm the amount, previously telling the Telegraph: "I've been very lucky in life." He helped found the polling company YouGov and along with his wife, owns a huge property empire, which includes a country home and stables, a £20 million London townhouse, a number of high-street properties and an industrial estate. A Mirror investigation previously found that more than half were purchased while Mr Zahawi was serving as a Government minister. Seven of the properties bought for over £10 million are mortgage-free, and two more were partially-funded by £10 million loans from Mr Zahawi's wife Lana. Read more: Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi: Everything you need to know about the Warwickshire MP The Zahawis personally own five residential properties, worth at least £17 million - three in London, one in Warwickshire (where his constituency is) and one in Dubai. The home near Warwick, a country house with stables, was bought for £875,000 in 2011. One of Mr Zahawi's firms purchased the £3.5 million Chunnel industrial estate in Ashford Kent, by the Eurotunnel train station, and his wife Lana Zahawi now owns two superstores, including a £6.3 million plot home to a giant Co-op and car park in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Another company controlled by Mr Zahawi owns £18 million worth of land containing an Asda megastore in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. Since it was bought four years ago, its value has increased by £1.25 million. There is no suggestion that he has breached the Ministerial Code. In 2013 it was reported that Mr Zahawi had claimed the livery's £5822.27 heating bill on expenses, which he said he had done by mistake and repaid. At the time he posted a statement on his website saying: " Since last week's coverage of my energy bills I have been looking into them further and can confirm that all claims for heating fuel relate purely to my second home. " However I have made a mistake with my electricity claims. On investigation I have discovered that the electricity supply for a mobile home located in the stable yard and for the stables themselves was linked to my house. " Whilst a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill, it was wrong to assume I was receiving two and to have not checked this sooner. I am mortified by this mistake and apologise unreservedly for it. " I will obviously be paying back any money that was wrongly claimed immediately and have already contacted IPSA [Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority] regarding the correct procedure."
    • Keir starmer please take note 
    • Well, if it wasn't for all those Jews he'd beaten up, I'd agree. That and the tattoo of a swastika is a dead giveaway.    I mean, it's crazy. I very much think he handled the whole situation poorly from a managerial perspective as LOTO, and I feel the report backed that up, but 'dangerous anti-Semite'. Okay bud. The entire thing has run rampant, and there's barely a middle road to tread where he's concerned. He's either the saviour of all things, or he's the devil. It's a myth. The fuckin' lot of it.
