I know and agree that's stats should always be taken with a pinch of salt. Having said that, they can be a good starting point for discussion, and with that in mind, did anyone else see the sky sports article that "found" January statistically our worst month since the premier league started? That surprised me. I would have picked november. Remember loads of them where we totally went off the boil

Is this meant to be sarcastic? Also genuinely think this whole plan b think is utter nonsense. You can't have a team of players ready and prepared to play two entirely different styles of play. Don't get me wrong can have a team be more offensive or defensive but in terms of playing two different styles of play don't see how it works.

For example at our best we play a high pressuring team, that relies on having 3 rotating CF and a mobile midfield capable of moving the ball quickly, whilst playing a high line defensively. where this supposed plan b would require; a CF who was the focal point of the attack with either wingers and/ or a midfield to feed of them or attackers to play off them. where playing high line (which would be suicide due to the amount of times you'd lose the ball or at least two defensive minded CM to compensate) . Meaning would literally need two teams of 11 capable of playing two entirely different styles, plus subs.

For me, will hold my hand up and say I was wrong. Thought we had a great squad with high fitness levels. However, we seem to have a fantastic starting XI when fully fit, that massively suffers when 1 player goes missing (eg; mane, matip, coutinho, firminho, Henderson, etc. ) that currently look exhausted.

I was wondering if the eds could provide some insight into the actual role of the captain in modern day football. So much is made of it, but exactly how necessary are they? Of course they can be an example to younger kids/ players and a leader on the pitch, but surely any senior can be, and often is that. Is there more behind the scenes aspects to it, or is the role more these days a focal point for the media?

Mainly the renting of hotel rooms, buying of prostitutes, supplying champagne and laughing gas, and setting up the camera.

Roland he was asking the role of a captain not donald trumps campaign manager.

I get the concern over bloated squad, but there will certainly be departures. The only question is who and when.
What I think klopp is trying to do is give us options. Too many times over the last season or two, you would like at the bench and see only like for like replacements. The signings so far seem an attempt to offer different options, the ability to have players that will help a change of tactics or formation rather than shoehorning people into roles they don't suit.
I still think the kids will play a role. There's just no way they will be introduced en
masse. They will be drip fed game time, given opportunities. The onus is on them to grab them and run with them, both in matches and in training.

question for the eds.

how often, if at all, does being way on international duty effect player decisions on who to sign for? as in, they get friendly with someone whilst there and try and engineer a move to their team? or vice versa, a player mentions to his manager someone would be interested in moving to their team after a chat they had whilst in the international set up? or can players be sent in with agendas from their club manager to do a bit of a "sell" on their club or to sound them out if they would fancy moving to them?

hope that makes sense.

I thought Coutinho probably helped put in a good word for us last year at Copa, which led to a quick deal for Firmino. Could be wrong, though.

This isn't justice yet. This is truth. And what a wonderful feeling it is. Now, finally, the families can truly seek justice for the beloved 96.

Its not just posting the rumour to share it, but to enable us the ability to discuss it too. If we don't post about stuff that's all over the press, how can we collectively rip it to pieces for being rubbish?

I do feel it could be said he has tinkered too much. I know we have had some good and great results in the last two months, but for me the performance level has been off. Not quite there in some instances. I feel that he moved people from positions to cover injuries rather than keep people where they are and rely on the sub's. For example, lallana has not been the same played on the front right of attack. Still, its not doom and gloom and I'm not panicking and over reacting. The negative results and performances are never completely about us. Southampton set an incredible record with their win, so you have to give them massive respect. We are still in a great position.

Just like to point out that can is a squad player. If every player is fit, like at the start of the season, he doesn't get picked. Injuries brought him into the team and have kept him there

Aren't clubs starting to introduce quiet boxes for autistic supporters and their families? I'm sure I saw that not too long ago. May not be widespread, but worth looking into.

I hate it when people say we need a world class player in whatever position. Well, duh. Who doesn't. Just because we "need" one doesn't mean we are going to get one. Truly world class players are a rare breed and even if we could afford to buy one, who says we could afford their wages or even if they would want to come here? So how about being a bit more realistic?
So many seem to assume that winning teams only have world class players in every position. So very very wrong.
