    Too nice?

    Way too nice. Not snide enough either. The Derby was the one that did me - we owed those twats and we came out like fucking mice.

    Will everything be okay next season?

    Unlikely - especially if we don't secure a place in the European Cup and FSG decide as a result to further tighten spend. We IMO have to ship out dead wood and permacrocks and bring in 2 centre halves, 2 midfielders and a versatile attacker. To fund this and to improve squad depth and have reliable cover that is ready to contribute when needed and when we choose to rotate we need to bin bag Keita, Matip, Oxlade and Origi and see what we can raise for likes of Wilson, Grujic et al.....the way we have been unable to call on reliable cover this season has been a big, big reason why we are fucked - this has to change. We have to learn lesson from this season that 3 senior centre halves is not enough and one of those being a permacrock is unacceptable....we have to stop trying to force square pegs into round holes as cover across the team and we need to develop a Plan B for when Plan A is not working....at present we simply do not have one. We need to act like a big club in the summer even if we miss top 4, like a club who is on a one off temporary absence from top table, not like a skint, UEFA cup level club.

    We are just sleep walking from bad performance and bad result to exactly same again and again. It is either a total lack of any sort of plan b or a total blind spot to glaringly obvious problems.

    It is a ridiculous level of stubborness/is a real blind spot. If you don't (as we don't right now) have the personnel to make your preferred way of playing work, then you have to change and adapt and find a way that works with what you have. 10 pts from 11 games in 2021. No goal from open play in over 10 hrs at home. 5 home losses on bounce... Yet still we come out each game set up same and seemingly hoping it will somehow work, despite it clearly not. Square pegs being asked to fit into round holes and zero tactical or structural change....that is poor, really poor. Surely you have to hold hands up and say 'this isn't working' lets do something different.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    He's right about them being meek and showing no fight though. The 'they are the champions' shout only holds up for so long. Its like a fighter winning the world title and then curling up in a ball in his first defence as his opponent twats him all over the place and rips his title from him 'he won the world title' as a shout means nothing at that point really. That’s the most annoying thing of the whole game for me last night. Yes the subs were a joke, the way the team was set up was a joke, the players feeling sorry for themselves is a joke, but to stand there and do nothing when someone blasts the ball at your teammates head is pathetic and shows a lack of balls, a lack of desire, fight and passion.

    I definitely think there is a meekness about us and has been for a while....when form is bad and confidence is low you need fight, more than ever - and we lack it. A bit of snideness always helps too - we have none. A lack of leaders on the park? OK our injuries have been devestating, but our reaction has been really poor - something is wrong, this isn't a blip, or just a dodgy run - this is deeper and more concerning and attitude, fight, desire is a part of it. We need to sort it and quickly....thing is i don't really see any hurt or anger from us, just a meek acceptance and then sleep walk into next defeat hoping that the same things will yield different results.

    Look at how meek we came out v the shite for exmaple....after all that had happened in last derby and fact it is the derby anyway and we came out as meek as lambs. Where was the fight, where was the desire to right some wrongs...can't get up for that, then something is really wrong. That was deeply concerning and is part of a real malaise and is a big, big problem.

    Sense Klopp might ring changes for Fulham and although of course we are struggling like fuck anyway and players are out of form all over park and low in confidence, and our style of play is broken/personnel does not fit to make desired way of playing work - we all know that when we make wholesale changes we are never any cop. Can see a team especially with short turnaround and Europe a few days later like this: Alisson Trent Kabak Fabinho Robertson Milner Keita Wijnaldum Shaqiri Jota Origi

    Fuck me. Only we could go from that night a few short months ago lifting the title, where it felt the club was ready to start a new golden period - where the 30 year monkey on our back had finally been slayed and the future looked rosier than it has for decades to this.... 43 pts from 27 games. 5 home league defeats on bounce. 5 defeats in 6. Relegation form since before Christmas. Have not scored from open play in more than 10 hours at Anfield. Just 10 points from 11 Premier League games in 2021 Squad in pieces.

    I like the lad, but he shouldn't be being asked to play every week and in a side with problems.... Sadly we have been left with no choice due to lack of centre halves and sick notes in squad.

    And as it stand we look likely to be in it. It is set for the league cup winners, but If the winners of the League Cup have finished in the Premier League’s top five, then the spot will go to the sixth-placed side in the Premier League...

    As a 3 Thiago, Jones and Wijnaldum are totally unsuited to way we are set up/want to play. They offer no protection whatsoever, nothing much creatively, they don’t move the ball forward quickly enough or into good areas, they don’t close down and support a press. I have no idea what they do or are supposed to do as a 3.
