Need to fix that defence.
With Basle, that is 8 goals shipped in our last three meaningful games.
We have bought so many defenders who had or appear to have no real future at the club - Coates, Llori, Sakho, Moreno, etc.
We never got to grips with the defence in the Rodgers era. And things have not changed yet.
The very first things really effective coaches seem to do is fix goalkeeping and defensive weaknesses. Guardiola at City, Conte at Chelsea, for example.

Fair point tiger but I don't think pep has fixed city by bringing stones in! He's a long way away from being a great defender.

It's the one area where I feel Klopp has disappointed. Irrespective of individual errors, our defensive organisation remains poor.
The other point is that we don't appear to be able to break down well organised defensive teams, like Burnley yesterday.

Solid performance by the Reds at Wembley.
Mane will be very important for us. Great to see him in good form.
I wouldn't read too much into the result.
Barcelona are known for demanding enormous appearance fees, and not bothering to play more than half hour/ 45 minutes. It is part of the their preseason MO, and their commercial strategy.

Not sure if its an advisable commercial strategy to have your pants pulled down in front of the televised world. There will certainly be less Mascherano shirts sold in the next week.
2.) 07 Aug 2016 09:30:00
They've only been at preseason a fraction of the time we have, think it's their second game and our second last.

Didn't the play Celtic and Leicester last week fencey?

Klopp has said he wants players who want to be at Liverpool.
If someone offers 50 million for Coutinho I would bite their hand off. And Goetze can do whatever he wants also. I couldn't care less. As Ed002 has suggested, he seems to be trouble.
Leicester have shown us what it takes to win the title. No sure Coutinho or Goetze have those attributes.
On that note, a salute to Daniel Agger. Oozed class on the field, and loved the club. YNWA.
1.) 10 Jun 2016 07:24:09
Agree about Coutinho and Gotze.
This lad Zielinski who we're linked with appears to have the attitude Klopp wants. Looks like he really wants to join us. if reports are to be believed.
Not a bad player either.
2.) 10 Jun 2016 08:35:51
He's worth more than 50 mil mate.
3.) 10 Jun 2016 09:36:34
If sterling worth 50mil, coutinho is min 60 mil player.

Interesting news about Goetze, if true.
Ancelloti was appointed coach what, about six months ago and it is only now that Goetze suddenly Goetze learns that he is in Ancelloti's plans? At the same time that he fires his management company?
Far be it for me to suggest someone has dangled a fat January Bosman contract in front of him . . .
1.) 24 May 2016 11:17:47
I heard he wanted to watch us play in the Europa League final to make a final decsion on joining but couldn't see the TV.
Far be it for me to suggest someone dangled a fat Bosnian in front of him.

If we are to rebuild the side, and we must, surely the goalkeeping position is the first piece of the puzzle?
How frustrating that we have still not sorted out the goalkeeping position, six years after Reina at his peak.
How long will it take us to find a keeper like De Gea, Lloris, or Schmeichel?
For a club with our aspirations, the failure in this regard has bordered on the criminally negligent. A stark indicator of how badly the footballing side of the club has been run.
1.) 22 May 2016 10:40:33
I'm not saying Mignolet should stay, but surely the first thing that needs to be changed is the Goalkeeper Coach.
How may have improved under him?
How many have stayed the same?
How many have got worse?
Once that position is sorted, then get a replacement keeper.
If it's during the same window, then even better.
2.) 22 May 2016 11:00:52
I agree, migs would at least be decent second choice keeper, better than what we have had for years as a second choice. I think we need a new goalkeeping coach, I think we have other areas within the coaching staff and Liverpool set up that are not very good at their jobs either and are in those positions because no one else knows any better. Doesn't look like it will happen and it is one of the many things happening within the club that has me scratching my head.
3.) 22 May 2016 12:46:26
Red all over, we do need a new goalie coach but I doubt a new coach would improve Mingolet to the level we need, don't forget he has been coached by a Sunderland and Belgium coach in recent years and is still poor, after all you can't polish a turd!
4.) 22 May 2016 18:39:32
To those who disagree, so you think Mingolet can improve to level what we need?
11 Sep 2016 06:41:50
This is not the first time Mignolet has put his defenders in a difficult situation with foolish passes. In fact, he tends to do it several times a game.
Yes - it may be part of team tactics. But the players on the field must have game intelligence. Otherwise tactics are useless. Mignolet lacks that.
26 Aug 2016 10:18:03
If you think goalkeepers have it tough, you should see how they were treated in earlier eras, before referees began protecting them.
Keepers have the most longevity, and the least injuries of any position in football. So in that sense, it is certainly not the riskiest position.
Keepers are most in danger from their own players. See our very own Karius. This happens when a defence is poorly organised. A goalkeeper who knows how to organize a defence and communicate well will put himself at less risk.
All in all, your rant is unconvincing, and does nothing to undermine the original point:Joe Hart is overrated because he is English.
Man City now have the coach with the stature to act accordinlgly.
26 Aug 2016 09:54:50
I suspect we will almost certainly be paying part of his wages. How else do you think Sion can afford him?
Let's hope this gets done and we can cut our losses and move on.
03 Aug 2016 18:40:33
The whole situation with LB is a shocker, quite frankly.
Probably the one position that we most needed to address, other than keeper, so what is the sum total of our efforts three months after the season ended and eleven days before our first game?
Ask Milner to play at LB.
21 Jul 2016 10:17:57
Good. Now let's get behind him.
The fee is not his fault. And it is also not his fault that other options do not want to come to us without Champions League.
How he played in the second half of last season means nothing to me. It's the future that matters.
Welcome to LFC.
28 Jul 2016 10:08:59
Chelsea will be very, very difficult to beat this season. Potential champions.
LFC? Too many changes to make too many judgements about the LFC team performance. Many of them looked like they had never played together before.
Obviously we lacked a cutting edge in final third. Two thirds of the possession and managed three shots on goal. Need Sturridge fit this season to have a shot (unless we buy another striker)
Karius could have come out for the corner. Otherwise looks comfortable in his position.
Wisdom looks clearly out of his depth.
11 Jun 2016 08:51:32
It's a beautiful story, mate. You should put it to song.
11 Jun 2016 08:44:20
Sad to see Kolo go.
If we had four younger versions of Kolo for our defence, we would probably win the title.
Just as an aside: the younger defenders coming through in professional football today mainly range from mediocre to awful. And they cost 20 million.
I wish I were younger - I think I would have made a very good living in England posing as a defender.
07 Jun 2016 08:21:43
If Coutinho leaves for PSG, we will easily be able to afford Higuain. I doubt Klopp was in the stands watching him play just because someone gave him a free ticket.
07 Jun 2016 08:16:04
Why? He could conceivably break into the first team sometime midway through the season, and cement his place. Why put that kind of pressure on him in preseason?
