The Bournemouth game is now our only remaining midweek game, so we have at least a week to prepare for almost all of our remaining fixtures. This means we should be able to name a pretty settled side, and consistently be able to play our strongest eleven. A lot of our slip ups so far have come at times where we have had fixture congestion.
I'm pretty confident the gap at the top will fluctuate a few times over the rest of the season so there's no reason not to think we can get quite a bit closer. And if we can get quite a bit closer. who knows? I'm convinced we'll be top two. But where in that two, I'm not sure.

We just have to win our games and not focus on anything else and this, starting with Hull this week. No margin for error in our situation.

I get that our attack has looked a little one dimensional without Mane, but I would suggest that the defensive frailties are down to Matip being injured/ unavailable/ not selected for the period of our troubles. His absence is at least as influential as Mane's. He martial the defence well, keeping Lovren on his game. We should be tighter at the back on Tuesday


1.) 29 Jan 2017 01:09:02
Whilst I agree that we need to be a lot tighter at the back and that matip has been a huge loss recently, I disagree that we will be capable of doing that any time soon and that matip is the reason we are so fragile and exposed at the back. I think that's a very convenient excuse, just like saying mane is the reason we can't win games at the moment, it's very naive and incorrect. It's a lot more than personnel, we have been exposed at the back numerous time even with matip in the defence, but we have been better with him included as the stats show. However before he got injured, we had the highest goals conceded out of the top 8 teams, and I think we are there or there abouts now. Mane has been a bigger loss, because we had no one in attack that provides width like he does, and when he went, which we knew was going to happen since august, we did not prepare for it at all well, and didn't even use our best option for width in ojo, to me that is more than personnel, that is poor management.

I agree with you, Kman. Klopp of course knew Mane would be gone in Jan but maybe his plan was to finally give Origi and Studge the chance to shine and stake their claim as bona fide starting players, a plan I did not disagree with as you won`t find good players in Jan without breaking the bank as our chase of Alex Texeira of then Donetsk, suggested. If this was the case, can you blame Klopp for having faith in players who have produced in the past and have not stepped up now? Sometimes we can`t just blame the manager for everything. The players have to take responsibility as well. Notice after the Wolves game, Klopp said he learnt a lot about his players during that game. If I played any part in that game especially a first teamer, I`d be worried.

There have been a few posts on here lately about Milners inadequacies at LB. My question is for Ed001 and those posters who watch our academy and u23's. How has Juanma been doing since he joined? Is he regarded as a first team prospect any time soon? Thanks guys.

{Ed001's Note - I have only managed to catch a couple of games, he played well enough in them to catch my eye and ask about him. According to what I have been told, he has been excellent and is expected to be in and around the first team squad by the end of the season.}


1.) 18 Dec 2016 16:38:02
Perhaps playing Milner there has given us 12 months to have a look at him then, rather than buying a player we might not need.


2.) 18 Dec 2016 17:15:06
Thanks Ed001. I posted in the summer when it came to light that we weren't buying a new LB that perhaps Milner was a stopgap until Klopp felt Juanma was ready. Let's hope, when he gets a chance, that he grabs it with both hands and saves the club from expensive mistakes!


3.) 18 Dec 2016 23:44:44
If Klopp thinks Juanma may be ready by end of or beginning of next season, then I will trust him. He`s from Barcelona so he knows the expectations at a big club.


4.) 19 Dec 2016 07:58:06
I believe he was also captain of his age group at Barca, so you'd imagine he has a decent head on his shoulders too. Nothing wrong with adding leaders to our team.


5.) 19 Dec 2016 10:38:59
Hold on there Gmac, he's not even had a senior appearance for us let's not be calling him a leader just yet!

Top of the league by 7.30 then boys? 😎.

Loving the look of the line up tonight. Attack minded, speedy, clinical and cultured. All bases covered there. Come on Red Men, let's 'Ave it! YNWA.

Randall played the first half at RB and the second at LB v Wigan. He is a right back, but perhaps that's why Wignolet related the two transfer rumours.

It makes a change for us to be linked with a player AFTER Spurs have been linked. It's become something of a pattern that we are linked with players who then join Spurs. No thanks on this one though, he's not Liverpool quality and far from an improvement on that which we already have.

Weren't people on here accusing Lallana of slowing our movement down last season? Too many Cruyff turns etc. We'll look at him now! (Or at least look at his performances when used in midfield this season)
Let's all have a bit more faith in the manager. He has turned a few of our players careers round so let's see what he can do with Can. He is still young, has great physical attributes, so let's see what Klopp can do with him instead of jumpingvon his back for every misplaced pass. He is a Liverpool player and we should be 100% behind him.

I agree with you Ron. The speed and directness through midfield has been lacking of late. IMO that is down to Lallana being moved further forward to cover injuries. That has often meant Hendo, Wijnaldum and Can as a midfield 3. Yesterday it was those three with Hendo struggling for fitness. I'd like to see Lallana pushed back in there (preferably with Can, although I know that goes against the majority on here) . When we lose a starter from our front three, be it injury, AFCON etc, I'd like to see another forward fill the gap rather than moving our most direct midfielder forward. You'd think we should always be able to pick three fit and firing from Mane, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge, Origi, Ojo, Woodburn, Ings and Wilson. (Yes, I know some of those are currently unavailable! I meant consistently, throughout the season)

I'm with you except I'd go for Can ahead of Wiji. He is much better with the discipline of Henderson next to him, assisting him with his positional awareness. Without Henderson, Can is a bit mindless.

I hope he's a good luck charm Big Dan. And he becomes a red for life too!

ANY straw can break the camels back. It's just a matter of timing. Without the previous straws, each straw would make no difference.
All matches are worth three points, whether they are the first match of the season or the last. Without the previous wins, we wouldn't have been in a position to say 'Stevie cost us the league'. Without earlier slip ups we might have been far enough clear that it was still in our hands after the Chelsea game. It is purely timing. You get three points for a win in August and they are just as important as the three points you get for a win in May. It's just that in May the season is ending and what's gone before is a factor. A loss in August/ September is seen as less important cos there are loads of games left to 'make up for it'. Three points for every game boys. Get over it, it takes 38 games to decide a winner, not 90 mins, or 2 1/ 2 mins etc. Each straw is just as important or irrelevant as the last, it's just timing that foists importance on it.
