hi. for me is simple ; this midfielders ( henderson, milner, gini) are not world class. we lost in paris because veratti and neimar distroy our midfiled. we have a world class gk, very . very good defenders, world class attak., we need a world class middfield. for me: verrati , _ n. keita_0x.

Juicer, Coutinho played largely on the left of the front 3. In his last half season when we tried to play him in midfield he just slowed the play down and lost possession. A lot.
I loved Coutinho in a Liverpool shirt but he was no midfield player. He was a forward, plain and simple.

And yet Bobby, for me his best ever spell (his first 6 months) he played in midfield.

OP, we never said our mid's were world class and you don't need to have world class midfielders to reach a CL final as clearly these same players you are bashing showed last season. I propose that the bashing of players should stop cos it is adding nothing to the debate.

As for Cou, his best years where when he played on the left side of midfield. I remember his first start at Anfield vs Swansea where he played on the left and scored a nice goal in a 5-0 win. His final 6 months were a complete disaster and showed why we were right to let him go cos he stopped trying.

No we simply don't have a midfield that and control a game and turn it on its head.

So not saying our current players aren't good enough but a pjanic next to hendo wouldn't go a miss!

If we have a world class attack why could they not muster a shot on target over two whole games against Naples and Paris? If we have a world class defence how come they let two goals in against Belgrade? Stop blaming the midfield for everything.

IMO it was a very good game of football. Apart from the result I enjoyed it! It is what CL games should be about. You can blame blame blame all you like, but the fact is it was Paris that were just excellent, as were their crowd. If you count them as a the 12th man yesterday, they played a blinder. It was entertaining and well-deserved. We can't win every game. I believe our own 12th man will do their job against Naples at Anfield. We move on.
