    Shit. We really are fucked then.

    Spurs (A) 28/1/21 - Premier League - 20:00

    We’ll have all the ball but struggle to create because Jose’s parked the bus and then we’ll get bummed by Son on the counter attack. We’ll spend the last 20 minutes camped around their box with Robertson and Trent slinging in cross after cross, but we won’t score. Any point in watching this?

    If this news that we’ve at least contacted Stelios to check on his situation is true then it sounds like there’s at least been an acknowledgement from within the club that a short-term fix has to be explored. Stelios wouldn’t be my ideal signing by a stretch, but he’s streets ahead of both Williams and Phillips plus he’s already used to playing for Klopp. Desperate fucking times mind that we’re even in a position to be considering Arsenal’s castoffs, but needs must.

    I'm envious of the way they play. When was the last time our lads pressed like they do, at the top of the pitch?

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Simply inexcusable from FSG not to bring in a free agent for 6 months or somebody on loan. It looks like Klopp has asked for it and told to get to work with Nat Phillips instead. Fabinho has been outstanding at centre back, but we're beginning to really miss his presence in midfield. He's the best holding player in the league and him away from the anchor role means shoehorning in Hendo or Thiago, which has a major knock-on effect further forwards. There's no reason why a club challenging on three (two after tomorrow) refuses to address a massive gaping hole in their squad while they have the chance to do so. And for all those holding out hope on the likes of us keeping our powder dry for Upamecano or somebody of a similar profile - I highly doubt they'll join a Europa League side, which is where we're heading until this shitshow gets addressed.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold

    Absolutely brutal from Trent. First real dip in his career, but he desperately needs taking out the firing line. Unfortunately there is fuck all in reserve to come in.
  7. Kane or Jimenez would cause absolute havoc. Perfect players for us, but obviously not going to happen. I’d love to see Danny Ings back. He’s been a revelation at Southampton. I thought he was just a finisher but his all round game has significantly improved. He’s 28 though, which makes signing him unlikely.

    BILD are now reporting that Alaba's move to Madrid isn't finalized and Liverpool are still in for him.

    As magnificent as they’ve all been for the club the numbers have been in a steady decline mind.

    His cameos don’t particularly warrant it, but I’d genuinely consider giving Origi a run of games, but only if this 4-2-3-1 is going to stick. I know he’s been dogshit but a while but we’re three and a half games without a goal and something has to give up front. We’re like a blunt instrument at the moment.
  11. This. Something is definitely up with all three. Mo in particular looks like he’s been found out. He’s not particularly strong at holding the ball up, and it doesn’t help that referees literally don’t give him anything, and he’s completely unwilling to go on the outside and trust his right foot. He’s very, very predictable to play against. Couple that with every single team knowing to play a low block against us and he doesn’t have any space to run in behind any longer. Strangely he doesn’t seem willing to take shots on any longer either. Bobby is just finished. His legs have gone. Great player for us, but he’s a shadow of where he was a few years back. We might see the odd flash now and then, but it’s like playing with ten men. Every single attack breaks down with him and every time he gets into a half decent shooting position he passes it back to the keeper. Sadio is going through a dip, but he’ll be back. He’s the one I have least concerns over.

    Fucking hell. That is grim. Bent cunt.

    Man Utd (H) - Premier League -17/1/21 - 16:30

    Jones seems to be playing more and more within himself and turning into a "safe" midfielder who passes the ball side to side and does the hard yards. I get that Jones's positional sense and understanding of the role had to evolve in order to make it in a Klopp team, but he seems to have a lost a bit of that creative, unpredictable, spark that makes him unique.

    Refuse to believe the club are thick enough not to sign a centre back this window. This should have been sorted on January 1st but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they've likely been trying to bring forward a planned signing for the summer. Probably Ben White or Upamecano. Now that doesn't seem likely to happen then they surely must be pursuing the loan route. Christ, they brought in Steven fucking Caulker on loan when faced with a similar situation 5 years ago!

    Harvey Elliott

    I'd have him back and ahead of Minamino and Origi. The kid only turned 17 a few months ago and is tearing up the Championship. Unreal talent.
