    The centre back excuse was always a bit of a thin one. We aren't conceding many but are failing to score goals and even get shots on goal. That is caused by not buying a centre back which means our playmaking talent like Henderson and Fabinho (?) need to drop into defence, thereby disrupting the shape of the team which means we can't score goals or create chances. Erm, OK. Not a terrible explanation but isn't it just because our attack is crap? Occam's razor and all that.

    In terms of talking about Klopp's performance it is allowed. Its a basic reality of the job he is in. I remember Klopp talking about a conversation he had when Alisson first came to the club. He told Alisson that the goalkeeper position is a cruel position: you can be a hero but one mistake and suddenly everyone blames you and puts pressure on you and that Alisson would just have to accept that. Klopp knows the ruthless accountability of the profession he is in better than anyone so he doesn't need to be shielded from receiving any criticism whatsoever. The reality is that Klopp and the coaching staff are great at coaching our players to retain the ball and control the game but they need to coach them to do more with it, especially against an organised defence that is in position. That observation isn't really criticism and I'm sure they are perfectly aware of it. They seem to be experimenting and trying a few things and changed personnel for this game but it hasn't worked yet.
  3. Mane's a awesome footballer who's just having a rough patch. Bobby should have been gone six months ago and Origi not long after. None of this would be happening without the pointless injury to Jota.

    All aboard the "play with an advanced playmaker" train. Choo choo!

    Desperation. Firmino isn't at the standard we need and because Klopp has kept faith with him way too long and got his backup injured - what else could be done? I actually wouldn't criticise Klopp for that decision: I see why he made it even if I'd have gone with Taki.

    I have a feeling you will get there. If this keeps going everybody will although I don't think many people will actually start putting bets on against us.

    They absolutely don't deserve abuse but they are heaping misery on their own supporters. Imagine pandemic-struggling families paying to watch all of this shite via Sky. I'd like to see some of the players like Firmino and Origi face professional accountability via removal - from the first eleven in the former case and from the squad entirely in the latter. If Klopp and the coaching team don't figure out how the whole "attack a deep defence" thing works we are basically fucked. Even I can see that the chipped balls into the box aren't working.

    Fuck it I'm basically numb at this point.

    The style of football that prioritises ball retention over everything else is starting to choke the life out of us creatively. We are going to end up "controlling games" into mid table here.

    There's been a trend in our play where we don't try to get in behind in wide areas but just hit a ball into the box. Its has never worked.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Sure, and they did it.

    Yeah I'm really struggling to enjoy watching football at all these days. Our wank attacking play is a big part of it but I remember even enjoying the average Houllier game (I might be romanticising the past there). Something really has been sucked out of the soul of the game. You really aren't alone on that one.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    The rush to put 100% of the blame for the current situation on FSG is laughable. FSG are far from perfect (gini contract) but they spent decently on Jotta and Thaigo. They aren't responsible for our injury crisis which is just bad luck (apart from the injury to Jota which is Klopp's fault for playing him in a game that didn't matter). I'm not surprised, the blame is going to go where people need it to go and if you are the whipping boy de jour your out of luck, but a lot of what has happened is incredibly bad luck and some terrible officiating at the start of the season. Also, Klopp and the coaching staff need to be assigned a percentage of blame >0%. FGG don't coach our forward line.

    Oh great. Team Huff and Puff vs Burnley in the Thunderdome. I'm tingling with excitement.

    Its not all fine Klopp and the coaching side need to sort our final third play out; its shit. Its not because of fullbacks, its not because of centre backs its because of what we are doing and aren't doing in the final third. Its actually quite a longstanding problem which our injury crisis has made worse. Its all on Klopp and the coaching staff. We have to start looking like we might score when we have the ball in promising positions. Utter, utter shite that.
