    Nathaniel Phillips

    The thing is we don't know what Klopps instructions are when it comes to runner going through different zones, does he want them to track the runner or is he telling the players to pass the player off to the man in the zone?

    Sadio Mane

    He hasn't been the same since he came back from having Covid. If he has a proper break at the end of the season then I think we will see the best of him again next season. He is putting the effort in but just seems to confuse himself alot of the time when he actually has to do something with the ball.

    Naby Keita

    Only if a new coach came in and played a high line, let's not get all hysterical fanny like after that absolute dross last night. Naby good player on his day but doesn't have the heart or determination to play in a Klopp team long term. We do need new blood but shoring up the midfield and adding more goals can hide a multitude of sins.

    This, you cannot give players like Toni Kroos the time to observe how things are unfolding and then pick his pass, even after he passed we had noone within 10m of him. In a foot race gomez and VVD would struggle to keep up with that Vinicius lad so letting him have a free run on to a non harried kroos pass was not a good idea. There was so much wrong last night and it started with Naby being selected and then Fabinho going to shit. The defence were the least of our worries last night, if the midfield and strikers had performed then we wouldn't be one foot out of the CL.

    Thiago Alcantara

    I actually think Neco Williams is a really good understudy to trent, he had a few bad games when he came into the team earlier in the season but towards then end of the run of games he got he started producing what we knew he could, the Ox would be an interesting one in the sense of i think technically he could play there but could his body stand up to what Trent and Robertson do, they are up and down all game sprinting, it takes a hell of an athlete to do what they do.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Klopp might be looking at one of the young midfielders as a natural successor like Jake cain. I think we will see a few more years of his minuted being managed. Giving the youngsters the time to stake their claim or get in a long term replacement.

    I think Benzema is the reason Gini was rested against arsenal, I think Klopp plans to smother their midfield and stop the supply line. Gini and Fab are the basis of that.

    I also said do you think we would have Signed Jota or Thiago if Wolves would have asked for 50%upfront or if Thiago wasn't in the last year of his contract. Naby had a release clause at 48m and we agreed to pay a small premium a year early to guarantee we got him. I'm not saying you can't get good players from that pool but I want us to not use that as the starting guide.

    From what has been reported yes.

    Cash flow plays a big part in it all though, if wolves had asked for half upfront and the rest spread over the next 2 years we would probably walked away.

    And all of these were signed after we won the CL yes, as stated SINCE we won the CL we have been shopping in the bargain basement, we wouldn't have signed alisson without selling coutinho and keita had a release clause which was supposedly below his true value. Fabinho was an absolute steal as he was regarded as one of the very best in his position.

    For all the planning that has gone in here we are with the core of our team approaching 30, I dont sit and track players from all over the world but are you telling me that through all the big leagues there have been no players sold for a reasonable price that could have come in and been acceptable understudy who could potentially work their way into the first team. I'm not saying we should have sacked off all our old and crocked players im saying a team has to continually evolve and plan for the next phase of players to come through. What Barry was saying and I agree with is if all you are looking at is the bargain basement unless you sell a major asset then you are omitting about 80% of the player pool out there, and no not all of them will be right for us.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Yeah I saw that, it wasn't the best thought out line was it.
  15. I still think we will sell him in the summer, it won't be fair having given him a taste of fist team football then moving him back to 5th or 6th choice.
