So Jerome Sinclair to Watford done deal.

Loganlfc

1.) 21 May 2016 15:47:49
Would he have got a chance in the first team? Probably not. So he's got every right to look to establish himself somewhere else. His agent is a bell end though.


2.) 21 May 2016 14:57:21
Least that's the first drop of poison extracted from the club. Signed his own death warrant when he employed Aidy Ward.

God knows how he thinks he'll get game time at Watford. Amrabat, Deeney and Ighalo are miles ahead of him.

He needs to realise he is still a kid with potential. Strikes me of Tom Ince all over again. An academy kid getting too big for his boots, getting terrible advice from their agent/ father, and both will ultimately end up playing Championship football because of it.


3.) 21 May 2016 17:22:48
Yeah, Sinclair has made his bed. Not like we are going to miss him anyway.


4.) 21 May 2016 17:38:07
Good luck Jerome, it's a good move for him IMO.

YNWA.


5.) 21 May 2016 19:42:19
Did Rodgers make him promises or was he just greedy?

If Rodgers made him promises then you have every right to seek alternative employment - I'm sure we would all do the same!

If it was greed then I cannot condone that.


6.) 22 May 2016 05:28:29
I believe he will turn out to be as prolific as Cameron Jerome at Norwich.

Ed002, reports out of Turkey saying Besiktas have made a bid for Skrtel.

Have you heard anything?

Loganlfc

{Ed001's Note - his agent is the source, he has said that there was an offer for him.}


1.) 21 May 2016 09:48:43
Fingers crossed.


2.) 21 May 2016 21:06:31
and legs?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


 

 

30 Apr 2016 07:51:21
Ed002, any legs to the rumour that Besiktas have open talks With Liverpool over Martin Skrtel?

Loganlfc

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any actual discussions being held in respect of Skrtel recently but if Liverpool were willing to let him go Turkey, with Besiktas, and Russia may provide options for him. It is clear that Besiktas want a deal for a centre back done as early as possible - right now Marcelo has come in on loan but he will head back to Hamburg. However, I understand that the talks they have been having with Cristian Zapata have been fruitful and that he will make the move from Milan in the summer. However, they may yet push for Skrtel as well as centre back is a position they have struggled with this season - I would not rule it out.}


1.) 30 Apr 2016 08:13:30
Thank you for the reply Ed002. As always, this is the best site when it comes to getting info on LFC player in and outs.

To all of the Ed's, keep up the fantastic work!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Logan, thanks.}


2.) 30 Apr 2016 10:43:01
I agree best site

Best info

Best Eds.


 

 

09 Apr 2016 15:27:48
Ed002, do you know of any interest in Skrtel or whether LFC are planning on moving him on?

Loganlfc

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any enquiries being made of Skrtel recently but if Liverpool were willing to let him go Turkey and Russia may provide options for him.}


1.) 09 Apr 2016 16:58:38
Even with Toure's contract ending, we have Gomez, Matip, Lovren and Sakho for next season and pending any other additions at CB so believe Skrtel's days are numbered.

Matip being injured is a massive loss for us. He has been a rock at the back for us and has brought the leadership we have been lacking for a very long time.

Ed001, do you think Klopp has made a mistake by bringing back Mignolet. Time and time again he has proven that he ain't good enough to be our number 1.

On the other hand, it could be that Klopp has decided to put Mignolet in the shop window. Pretty sure I read the other day that Ed002 said Mignolet will be moved on this coming summer.

This coming summer will be a massively important one for us. All we really need is a LB and CB for the first team and a RB to either cover for Clyne or take his spot in the first team. Clyne has improved a bit so let's see how things go with him.

Midfield we are stocked and depending on what happens with Sturridge, Ings and Coutinho, I cannot see us making too many changes when it comes to our attack. If Coutinho leaves we are going to need to find a proper replacement for him, not somebody for the bench.

Looking forward to the match vs our neighbours. Get in boys, all 3 points please!

Loganlfc

{Ed001's Note - it is nothing to do with the shop window for Mignolet, it is all about trying to protect Karius. Only time will tell if it was a mistake.

Personally I feel the wrong person was cut, this is a short term attempt to cover a serious weakness in personnel. Our goalkeeping coaching needs to be improved.}


1.) 18 Dec 2016 07:09:43
Thanks for the reply Ed.

Wonder why nothing has been done about the goalkeeping coach. Karius has done well so feel for him that he was benched. It would have been good to see how he coped with pressure and kept him in the team to see whether he has the ability to thrive under pressure.

Ten matches not going to be enough to show whether Karius has what it takes. Mignolet has had over 3 seasons and could not prove he is fit to be our no 1. Strange decision by Klopp, let's hope it does not ruin the great position we found ourselves in League wise.

{Ed001's Note - short term it is unlikely to be an issue, it is the long term effects that are the problem. The best keepers make mistakes, have bad runs, then come out the other side, like De Gea. Karius has now had the bad run, but no chance to work through it. Though, to be fair, with the troubles we have with the coaching side of goalkeeping, being kept in would probably have only completely destroyed his confidence and career.}


2.) 18 Dec 2016 07:56:01
I think benching Karius is not protection at all. Karius is the type of player that need to be playing and feel he is important, benching him will destroy his confidence. And mignolet will continue to stay complacent.

{Ed001's Note - Mignolet is far from complacent.}


3.) 18 Dec 2016 08:02:14
Mignolet complacent being dropped start of the season for Karius who is much younger, just arrived at the club and less inexperienced?

That was a clear indication that Mignolet is not our long term number 1 and to be quite honest, Mignolet knows that.


4.) 18 Dec 2016 08:02:48
Never been a fan of Mignolet from the moment I realized he can't kick a banana let alone a football. Benching Karius hardly makes any sense to me and it looks like he is warming for a long time than expected.


5.) 18 Dec 2016 08:24:30
I agree with Ed01 on this, it's been mentioned on here for a few years now that the GK coach needs replacing. The keepers we've had since he came have either failed to improve or declined.


6.) 18 Dec 2016 08:56:26
How can you blame the GK coach for Karius's errors?
Karius has been here for a very short time, you don't suddenly forget how to catch a ball or position yourself for a set piece over night.
It's too early to blame the GK coach over Karius, but he hasn't done anything for Mignolet.


7.) 18 Dec 2016 09:10:15
Some of you need to take off the rose tinted glasses.
Karius has hardly pulled up any trees since he got into the team and certainly doesn't deserve the messiah treatment some of you are giving him.
Don't get me wrong, longer term he may well turn out to be a decent keeper and I agree that Migs is of limited ability. However, I agree with the gaffer on this one and support the reintroduction of Migs. In hindsight, Karius should have been transitioned into the team via cup games initially. After all, transition is something we should be pretty good at doing now - we've had ten years practicing it!
On for the Eds - what does Klopp (and the club in general) see in Achterburg that you and others don't? If he is so poor a coach why hasn't he been moved on?
Fingers crossed for a good performance and three points on Monday.

{Ed001's Note - who has ever said Karius is the messiah? All anyone has ever said is that he has not had time to prove himself one way or the other. It is this kind of post that just provokes conflict and discord because of that petty little jibe that is completely untrue.}


8.) 18 Dec 2016 09:12:34
Totally agree with wise old Ron again here. the man just talks sense again and again!


9.) 18 Dec 2016 09:24:44
Well said Ron.


10.) 18 Dec 2016 10:15:01
I agree with Ron on the technique of catching a ball but things like lining up a wall will come directly from the coaching staff. If he's doing it wrong it will more likely be the coaches fault rather than his as he's just doing as he's told to in training.


11.) 18 Dec 2016 10:34:55
Yes you're right bobbyf, we need to take off our rose tinted glasses. Our young new foreign keeper, recently back from injury hasn't shown himself to be amongst the best in the league in the whole 10 games he's had. Get rid of the false messiah. All our new signing should only be given 10 games lol.


12.) 18 Dec 2016 11:10:27
I think for the rest of the season this could work. By klopps words it almost sounds like if mignolet now makes a mistake karius back in and so on.
I don't think it overly effects our defence which keeper plays certainly not to a level impossible to adapt to.
So essentially for the rest of the season you say to both players you don't reach a level of performance any week you're out.
Both keepers pushed to play their best karius also not taking on all the pressure of being number one in his first season, but if he is ready he also has the chance to show and prove it.
Then we evaluate in the summer.


13.) 18 Dec 2016 13:00:49
It's sad that people are now saying 2mouths into his Liverpool life and people are saying his not any good . Just wow . Some people need time and boy should be playing . Mignolet has made mistakes for 3 years .


14.) 18 Dec 2016 13:42:15
Keeper's games generally peak around the ages 27-35 IMO. Klopp is 100% spot on saying Karius is an important part of our future. He's too young to write off, I agree with ed001 he needs a better coach to help him improve.
With respect to the dropping of Karius I think Klopp handled the situation poorly. I think the guy is great but he dropped a bit of a clanger by indulging the press and the critics. Sadly, once he'd responded to press and Neville criticism, he had to take Karius out of the firing line because his every move was being scrutinised. Another mistake would have killed his confidence, started a media witch-hunt and caused the manager to be undermined.

Karius now needs to work on his game and rediscover his form. He need not be out for long, just long enough for Migs to prove he isn't good enough.
That's my take on it. Klopp should have ignored the questions about Karius and focussed on the team. Guess he's human after all 😎.


15.) 18 Dec 2016 17:55:04
Agree Ron on your post re goalie coach.


16.) 19 Dec 2016 00:50:02
The situation must be looked at wholistically and Ed as well as many other posters on this thread like Ron and Harry, have alluded to this. We cannot keep chopping and changing GK`s if the coaching part of this has not been looked into.

Our Goal Keepers are not improving whether it be Reina, thru Migs and Jones, right down to Karius, so we can`t put this all on them. I have always maintained that the media, pundits (LFC ex players included) targeted Karius, a young foreign GK with great potential and upside going thru a bad run, for issues with the team that go much further than his mistakes, some of which Klopp himself took responsibility for.

They targeted and bullied him in a bid to discredit Klopp (Nevilles) and in a bid to look unbiased (Carra and Redknapp) and many "fans" jumped on this non issue. With the Bros in Failure telling him to shut up and do his job just because he had the "audacity" to speak up for himself was embarrassing for them. They made it look like a GK could no longer make mistakes anymore whereas even the best GK`s make mistakes all the time.

Klopp should never have dropped him but I know why he did it. Migs is history and even he knows this so we shall see how Karius reacts to it.


17.) 19 Dec 2016 04:48:21
I know nothing about goalkeeper coaching or coaching in general. What I do know is that, during Achterberg's time here, not a single goalkeeper has actually improved their game. Reina got noticeably worse, Mignolet lurched from disaster to disaster, younger goalkeepers like Jones, Ward, etc haven't been close and, in Ward's case, only looked decent away from the club. Karius has come of the back of what is a serious injury for goalkeepers and made a few basic mistakes. The point in there is no improvement to be seen anywhere in our goalkeepers and there hasn't been for a long time - it is a worry.

I know nothing about GK coaching so I cannot point the finger at Achterberg and say conclusively that he is the problem. What you can do is look at results and what has happened already and I think Reina is a the key player to look at. Here is a GK who, until Achterberg joined, was very very good. Not perfect, he was prone to mistakes from time-to-time, but very good and certainly the best goalkeeper we've had for 20 years or so. He declined badly whilst Achterberg was coach and in fact only started looking better again once he moved on to Napoli. That is a damning inditement of Achterberg but, by itself, proves little. The fact no goalkeeper has improved during his time points to the fact that he simply may not be good enough for the role he has at the club. Coaching is hugely important, even more so for younger players - the evidence suggests Achterberg is far from the right man for the job.


18.) 19 Dec 2016 10:11:57
"wholistically" is my new favourite word.


19.) 19 Dec 2016 12:02:00
It's certainly new Dawn 😀.


20.) 19 Dec 2016 14:50:06
Spot on, Seano. Achteberg is not the reason Karius made the mistakes he made. But on a wider plaine, his coaching period correlates with Reina being worse or the others not improving and flat out stagnating hence, the issue is with him. As you say, coaching is important and we have numerous examples within our squad to attest to this point as players like Lallana, Can, Hendo and Origi were going nowhere until Klopp came in and fixed their issues. in statistics, they say that correlation is not always causation but I`m sorry in this case, IT IS.


21.) 19 Dec 2016 21:16:43
I disagree ron, the coach should be reviewing games with the keepers and ironing out flaws in their game on a week by week basis. The flapping at crosses and suspect positioning are not one offs.

Also much like the manager, the coach also has to find coping mechanisms that help the keepers stay calm in presurrised situations and thereby help them make the right decisions at key moments.

The coach also has to brief the keeper on opposition strikers and their preferred penalty/ free kick direction etc so they are as prepared as possible. There is little evidence of any of the above since valero left and atcheburg was promoted. In fact our keepers have generally gotten worse.

No he cannot be out on the field with them but there is little or no evidence to show he is improving any of our keepers.


 

 

13 Dec 2016 18:14:56
Firmino looks quite happy at Anfield. Obviously we will need to at the very least qualify for CL to keep Coutinho but reckon Firmino will stay irrespective.

If we are going to make any attacking signings in January then that could very well mean the likes of Coutinho will be off in the summer. Panic buying is not an option though. If we are going to sign players they have to be players who improve the first team, not those who are happy to sit on the bench.

We actually have a very good squad and our youngsters look like they can do the business too.

I guess what we all need to hope for is that we have a smashing season, finish top four and keep our jewels. We are still very much in with a chance of winning the league. Win the League and then we will have ll the power we need. Fingers crossed, this is our year.

BELIEVE!

Loganlfc

1.) 13 Dec 2016 18:23:47
Y do you think Firmino will stay beyond summer without CL. There has been already interest from PSG for the player. No CL means easy pickings.


2.) 13 Dec 2016 18:33:25
Ifs and buts. That is all we have to work with at this moment.

If a player wants to go then LFC will name the price. Just happy we have a manager now that does not need to buy superstars to win things. Klopp has proven he has the ability to unearth gems and collect silverware building a team from pretty much scratch.

This past transfer window has been the best LFC have had in n awful long time. Onwards.

{Ed002's Note - Both players arrived under Rogers not Klopp. And Klopp has not won anything for years.}

4.) 13 Dec 2016 18:41:38
I hope both stays for years mate. Coutinho is a magician. The ball sticks on his foot while Bob is the only player who could bench Daniel Sturridge in the league. Only trophies could keep elite players at the club ( of course unless you pay insane money ) .


5.) 13 Dec 2016 19:20:15
Liverpool have offered insane money for moons. Benteke was one of our highest paid players etc. Milner is too.

What about Mignolet's new contract recently. Liverpool have spent massive amounts of cash on transfer fees, wages and agent fees in recent years comparable and surpassing the other teams with plenty of money.

LFC have been one of the worst teams when it comes to the transfer market wasting money left right and centre on players with no proper planning. Think that has and will continue to change with Klopp at the helm.


6.) 13 Dec 2016 18:43:14
My point is that Klopp turned Dortmund around and did not spend bucket loads compared to Rodgers who won bugger all. Firmino did not even know where he was going to play under Klopp. Lallana has been completely rejuvenated under Klopp too. If Rodgers was still here then we would still be waiting for Benteke to hit the ground running.

All in all, majority of signings Rodgers made which re still at Anfield have improved under Klopp. Just have a look at Emre Can who ultimately is a midfielder, not a CB.

{Ed002's Note - You cannot compare Dortmund and Liverpool. And it was some years since he has won anything.}


7.) 13 Dec 2016 18:43:24
Ed002 it sounds like you don't have any confidence in Klopp. Who would your preference be as manager?

{Ed002's Note - I didn't say anything like that - just explaining the facts.}


8.) 13 Dec 2016 19:02:43
Good points Ed 002, but Klopp has proven himself capable of winning multiple titles and cups, that's not given to most managers. On the other hand we got quality in Matip and Mane, Wijnaldum looks useful and Klavan is a good squad player who was acquired for relatively little. Plus he's found the left back of the season already at the club, but who knew it before? (Rather like Conte playing Moses at WB) . Logan's point seems valid.

{Ed002's Note - 5 years ago was the last of Klopp's "multiple titles". Logan's point and attempt at comparing Dortmund and Liverpool is embarrassing.}


9.) 13 Dec 2016 19:46:58
I was not comparing Dortmund and Liverpool in any shape or form. I was merely making point that Klopp is capable of winning things without signing ready made superstars like he did at Dortmund.

Klopp has improved just about every player he inherited from Rodgers and let's face it, the squad Klopp inherited was going absolutely nowhere under Rodgers. This season we are 3rd and within touching distance of Chelsea who can only hope Costa is going to stay injury and suspension free.

Liverpool have already exceeded expectations this season and long may that continue.

{Ed002's Note - The expectations of the owners have not been exceeded at all. They remain of the opinion that they have paid to buy the league title several times over.}


10.) 13 Dec 2016 20:03:18
The season is far from over. I for one was not expecting LFC to be in with chance of winning the league this season. I am referring to a supporters point of view of exceeding expectations. Not FSG's.

{Ed002's Note - The evidence is that the supporters are only interested in whining and bitching whilst they trash all of the players. Fortunately the owners think more of the team than folks like you who don't think they are good enough.}


11.) 13 Dec 2016 20:18:56
I never suggested that I do not like FSG though. I am actually very happy with what they have done for the club since arriving and would not want to see them leave.

Again, I am looking at supporters point of view of how we have progressed this season under Klopp and I am pretty sure FSG are happy at this point that we re only six points behind Chelsea and not even half the season has gone compared to last season. LFC's improvement under Klopp this season has been fantastic to watch and here is hoping that continues.


12.) 13 Dec 2016 22:32:20
I don't see Hamilton, MK Scouser, the irrepressible Ron Keague etc doing massive amounts of bitching and whining. Logan's post was positive in terms of the squad and the transfer policy having improved. Some were too negative after the Burnley defeat, some too positive after the recent good run. I think that's human nature.


13.) 14 Dec 2016 01:07:04
As far as I can see we are doing very well. Not too far off the pace, a few cock ups but so have City Arsenal Tottenham Man U and even Chelsea early season.

Injuries haven't done us any favours but that's part and parcel of football. Back to winning ways against boro ynwa.


 

 

11 Dec 2016 09:51:01
On to the match later. Believe we will have too much for West Ham. They are a shambles.

They will probably park the bus and then hit us on the counter with hoof ball tactics. Happy to have Matip back. Our defence is just that much more organised with him in it.

Wonder which option Klopp will go with though to partner Matip. Lucas or Lovren who is starting to produce the performances when he first joined us.

We definitely need another competent CB which is able to step in and take charge when Matip is out and vice versa.

Loganlfc

1.) 11 Dec 2016 12:12:44
I'm so worried about today . If Carroll starts I feel he could destroy are defence.


2.) 11 Dec 2016 14:11:18
Carroll will be a threat but that is why we have Matip.


3.) 11 Dec 2016 14:39:33
We ll outscore the anyways.


4.) 12 Dec 2016 09:11:41
Has to be Lovren for me mate, I really like Lucas and all but Lovren will be fine with Matip, not sure how it'd pan out with Lucas on.


 

 

11 Dec 2016 09:12:14
Not LFC related but has to do with the EPL. Just wondering if the English game is slowly but surely proving to be too much for Guardiola? Aging City squad too. Lots of problems creeping out and not sure he has enough time to come up with a solution.

Possession football is not going to win you matches, especially if you cannot take your chances.

Read a comment on here recently saying that we are a great pressing team but we cannot deal with teams pressing us. I was a bit bemused with this comment as we defend from the front.

There clearly is a misunderstanding about pressing. Some associated it with running for 100's of miles chasing after the ball. This simply is not the case.

Pressing in short terms is winning the ball back as soon as possible after losing possession.

Bournemouth was a very poor result and our players completely switched off in the second half and Matip was badly missed at the back too. Our second loss of the season, you can't win them all and Bournemouth deserved the win.

We just need to move on from it like we did vs Burnley and bounce back thrashing West Ham. Football is not a complicated sport, especially when you have a manager like Klopp :-)

Loganlfc

{Ed001's Note - pressing is putting the opponent under pressure by getting close to the man on the ball and forcing him to play it quickly. It is intended to win the ball back as soon as possible, but that is not the definition of it. It is also intended to force errors, to make the opponent go backwards, as well as retrieving the ball.}


1.) 11 Dec 2016 09:19:09
His latest comments show a bit of naivety. Tackling may not be a huge deal in the continent, but it's important in England.


2.) 11 Dec 2016 09:27:53
All I am saying is some some misunderstand pressing. Klopp likes to play his football in the oppositions half. You press when the opposition have the ball.


3.) 11 Dec 2016 09:52:51
The nearer the opponents goal the error is forced by pressing the better chance there is of it becoming a goal scoring opportunity for us.
Thats why Firminios energy is so important to us compared with Sturridge.
Sturridge is undoubtedly a better finisher but Firminio has more attrubutes that suit klopps style.


4.) 11 Dec 2016 09:57:13
I remember Sammy Lee saying years ago that he played better when he didn't have to make a tackle.
Surely intercepting the ball gets you possession and attacking much quicker than winning a tackle.


5.) 11 Dec 2016 09:58:36
Firmino is an absolute beast when it comes to the press. The guys workrate is phenomenal! Firmino's movement is one of the biggest reasons why he is first choice.


6.) 11 Dec 2016 10:04:26
Klopp's pressing style is defined as the ability to win the ball back as soon as it is lost because it is believed that the opponent is at its most vulnerable at the time they win back possession.

If the ball cannot be won immediately, the pressing team drops into a compact unit and then bait the opposition into what are called pressing traps or zones where the ball can be won back again. See the Watford game for a clear demonstration.

Possession is useless if you don't use it well and the Burnley loss is a clear evidence of this. Many talk about the pressing game but don't know that there are variations of the pressing game nor have a clue of how Klopp's pressing system works. A bit of research would help tho.


7.) 11 Dec 2016 11:52:03
Pressing comes with a price. Price of getting tired hence some mangers wouldn't want their players to press and get exhausted. Not every managers like pressing. Some would happily let you have 100% of the ball as long as you don't hurt them.

There are different outcomes of pressing, A typical pressing is what Ed01 mentioned, some presses not to win the the ball high but to disrupt the easy flow of passing of the opposition. UTD did this sort of pressing.

Close down Liverpool's players, I don't want your ball but I make sure you don't easily find the space between my players.

If you know how to keep a brilliant shape and compact / discipline, you don't need to press high.

City have no defense and no midfield so they attack as try to score as much as possible.


8.) 11 Dec 2016 14:10:40
LFC keep a compact shape irrespective of whether we press high. So not sure what your point is. Discipline is needed irrespective of what style you play too.


9.) 11 Dec 2016 22:31:06
Spot on, Logan as keeping a compact shape at all times is the essence of Gegen Pressing, which is the variation that Klopp uses. Every system has a price so you are teaching us nothing on that front, Harry. Also, no one is talking about other managers. We are talking about the pressing system. Again, stay on topic. But I`ll indulge you.

You can let the opposition have the ball but if you do that, you will run into problems inviting pressure for long periods if the opposition knows how to use the possession to hurt you. Your idol Mou tried it vs Klopp last season and got smashed at the Bridge 3-1. We didn`t use our possession well vs Utd hence, his defensive so that system worked over two halves. Simeone did the same thing vs Real Madrid in the past and it worked but this season, he got thumped 3-0.

Moral of the story? To each his own but I`d rather be on the front foot and dictate the play so my team can have a chance to win even tho, I know it will not always work out that way.

Ben Woodburn, lad is only 16 and a breath of fresh air. He makes finishing a goal look easy.

Get in son, work your socks off and make a name for yourself at Anfield!

I try not to get too excited about pre season performances; both individually and as a team. But watching a 16 year old essentially outplay the senior guys is just hard not to be impressed by.

Completely agree. Brilliant to see such a young kid with so much potential.

Hope he gets a chance this season in a few games that would be incredible for him.

Benteke become better? He was no different than he was at Villa. Everything was served on a plate for him over there. Now he has to actually has to get stuck in which has been non existent since the day he joined LFC.

The biggest mistake came when the club decided to make him one of our highest earners.

LFC are in a situation where they are going to have to make Benteke happy financially to leave for another club. It is a tough pill to swallow but one the club should take.

Kman92, so the fact that Arsenal have been after Chilwell suggests that they have a massive lack of intent too?

Matip is in the official Bundesliga team of the season. Not seen much of him but seems like he is highly rated in Germany.

Yeah, Sinclair has made his bed. Not like we are going to miss him anyway.

The work Henderson puts in gets unnoticed. Klopp kept him on as captain and Henderson is proving his worth to wear the armband. Hendo will run through brick after brick wall and still come out at the other end fighting and never gives up.

At this point our midfield ain't going to be the same without him. He dictates play, recovers the ball, makes tackles, creates chances etc etc etc. What more do people want when that is exactly what Klopp expects him to do?

The disgusting tackle by Barkley on Henderson saw Klopp holding his head as a lengthy injury to Henderson will have to see a change in how we play and set up the team which at this point, if it ain't broken then no need to fix it.

Mignolet complacent being dropped start of the season for Karius who is much younger, just arrived at the club and less inexperienced?

That was a clear indication that Mignolet is not our long term number 1 and to be quite honest, Mignolet knows that.

Thanks for the reply Ed.

Wonder why nothing has been done about the goalkeeping coach. Karius has done well so feel for him that he was benched. It would have been good to see how he coped with pressure and kept him in the team to see whether he has the ability to thrive under pressure.

Ten matches not going to be enough to show whether Karius has what it takes. Mignolet has had over 3 seasons and could not prove he is fit to be our no 1. Strange decision by Klopp, let's hope it does not ruin the great position we found ourselves in League wise.

{Ed001's Note - short term it is unlikely to be an issue, it is the long term effects that are the problem. The best keepers make mistakes, have bad runs, then come out the other side, like De Gea. Karius has now had the bad run, but no chance to work through it. Though, to be fair, with the troubles we have with the coaching side of goalkeeping, being kept in would probably have only completely destroyed his confidence and career.}

I never suggested that I do not like FSG though. I am actually very happy with what they have done for the club since arriving and would not want to see them leave.

Again, I am looking at supporters point of view of how we have progressed this season under Klopp and I am pretty sure FSG are happy at this point that we re only six points behind Chelsea and not even half the season has gone compared to last season. LFC's improvement under Klopp this season has been fantastic to watch and here is hoping that continues.

The season is far from over. I for one was not expecting LFC to be in with chance of winning the league this season. I am referring to a supporters point of view of exceeding expectations. Not FSG's.

{Ed002's Note - The evidence is that the supporters are only interested in whining and bitching whilst they trash all of the players. Fortunately the owners think more of the team than folks like you who don't think they are good enough.}
