    Naby Keita

    All the niggly injuries have seemed to come along always at the wrong time, primarily when he was having to settle in and learn the way we play then, when he was finally showing good signs at the back end of last year he got that groin (I think) injury that ended his season then it seems that fucking Guinea applied massive pressure on him to play at AFCON, then most likely as a result of that he broke down again in pre-season. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I know it can't be an easy decision to tell your country you can't/shouldn't play in a major tournament but I bet he wishes he'd told them where to go and have the summer off to properly recuperate.

    Best Free Signing ?

    I'd agree with all of this. What is also true is that we should have signed Gary Mac in the mid 90's instead of ending up with the the likes of Ince and Leonhardsen, he was always a top quality player and would have been a great influence on the squad both on and off the pitch.

    Great stuff Dave, as usual.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Any wonder seeing fucking Hodgson at the beginning with Guardiola pre kick off. He hardly looked like a man who'd given his troops a team talk let alone anything remotely motivational. I bet he said more to Guardiola than his own team.

    Leicester (H) 30/01/19

    It's strange that the stats say we've scored more at this point that the same point last season but i agree in that like in games last night where not a lot was happening that we'd be best reverting to the Salah out wide and Bobby as the 9. Give Leicester credit, they defended well all night but the attacking subs last night not for the first time baffled me as to what they were meant to achieve, I thought Fabinho was very good when he came on but the problem was that 2 of the options in front of him were Lallana and Sturridge and no Bobby. I do think the way forward for the remainder of the season should be Fabinho, Gini & Keita with last years front 3 in last years positions. I genuinely don't see why this wouldn't work. I think that the Fabinho/Gini axis there is the key to unlocking Keita, with the added bonus of Shaqiri as the impact sub.

    Naby Keita

    i thought he did 'ok' in a game where others stunk the place out like Salah and Shaqiri. Personally i would have kept him on as I thought he was starting to make a bit of headway the deeper that Leicester got in the second half, especially so when Fabinho came on.

    Hated LFC players

    I'd also add to that the fact that we had the choice between him and Anelka. It was clear as day within a few weeks of seeing Diuof's performances that Ged had dropped an almighty bollock in signing him.
  8. Exactly, i thought they must have been watching a different game with the amount of praise Wolves got.
  9. Hahaha, I just don't think he deserves a lot of the stick he gets or is getting for last night. I'm never going to say he's brilliant and if he plays shite then I'll say it but generally I think he's good for what we do as a team as opposed to being there for individual moments of brilliance, I think people have merits on saying that he rarely(ever) does anything to drag us out of sticky situations but he rarely puts us in them either.
  10. The worst players on the pitch were Lovren, Mane & Milner, by a country mile. Henderson doesn't come into the equation why we lost last night, if anything it's on Klopp for not picking Fabinho over a barely fit Milner.

    No, they're out if we do what we need to and PSG win in Belgrade

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    I think there is an understandable level of frustration with the midfield as we've not really seen the performances that £100m worth of new talent demands, especially so in Baby Keith's case as we've had to wait 12 months for him and were so excited to do so. I too am of the opinion they will come good and that the long term plan is a 4231 with Keita and Fab at the base with AN other, the obvious candidate being Shaqiri or Ox(when fit of course) or Gini and Fab with Keita if we go a bit more 433. I seriously doubt Klopp brought them both in to still end up with a midfield of Hendo, Gini and Milner starting most games and it's been a mixture of niggly injuries(NK) and settling in(Fab) and a focus on being solid due to the former that's produced the relatively poor performances that are highlighted because the forwards aren't doing as much. Obviously not getting Fekir has also probably kyboshed original plans somewhat as well, and i hope that we may either go back in for him or pursue an alternative. Agree we need more strength and production up top, but I think if we can get the midfield functioning a bit more then we can just about get along with what we have, another option would be more than welcome though.

    Arsenal (A) Premier League 3/11 K.O 17:30

    Another tough away out of the way, and still undefeated. I’d have taken that before kick off, the trouble is it always feels what could have been when you’ve been in front and don’t win. Onwards and upwards.

    Huddersfield(a) PL- match thread

    I know that Klopp won't stand in the way of players wanting to represent their country but I can't help thinking we'd be best serving our own interests once in a while. VVD and Keita shouldn't have been allowed to play a minute given the recent injuries that they've actually had, or clearly still have in VVD's case. FWIW I expect Salah and VVD to line up on Saturday but I think that a couple of weeks off would serve us much better in the long run, and I'm pretty sure that other clubs think and act this way.
