Question for Ed1, if you're around?

Having just lost to Spurs, what's your take on the season so far, Klopp and his selections, and where does/ should/ will the club go from here?

Lots saying, as with City, that the result didn't reflect the game. So, is it time to worry or did we just come off badly against "the two best teams in the league"?

Thank you in advance, always enjoy your thoughts and insights in all things LFC.


{Ed001's Note - yesterday we were battered, imo, by the best team in the league. They are far better balanced than City. It truly reflected the game and the situation the two clubs are in right now.

As for worrying, not yet, too early in the season to assess things properly. Look at Citeh, this time last year everyone had handed them the title and they are doing it again this season, yet they won nothing. They will fade, Spurs might well end up doing a Spurs again and bottling it when it matters, but City will fade.

The only selection that matters Klopp is making a mess of. If he keeps giving Mignolet more chances, we will suffer. The keeper is the basis of everything. I don't understand it as he does not want Migs either, so why keep picking him? Madness.}

The same can be said for Can Ed.
Been said on here by various people that Klopp doesn’t rate him and it’s seems clear cut he’s off in Jan or the Summer but he is picked into the first team week after week.
If he’s off and not rated, why give him the playing time? Field someone else who does want to play for the club.

{Ed001's Note - I don't understand that decision usually, but yesterday without Wijnaldum, Lallana and Mane, options were limited.}

Agree Ed seems mad to me especially as Karius was dropped for less last season . Migs has no presence at all clearly the defence have zero confidence in him, the two CB’s clearly aren’t good enough but an authoritative keeper would make a difference.

Options available ed. that Coutinho, Milner Henderson in the middle. Grujic was on the bench, he must be showing signs of being a starter now (or is it because of injuries)
With Coutinho pulled into the middle we could of put the OX out wide.
Gini to come back in.

All seems very strange to me at the minute.

{Ed001's Note - Grujic was there because of injuries. I fail to see what Coutinho is doing to be worthy of a place right now. He has yet to perform well this season and is a major hindrance to our attacking play. Milner is not a central midfielder in any shape or form. However it really does not matter until the backline is sorted out.}

Everything starts from the GK, as Ed has said repeatedly here. Karius was dropped for WAY less last season YET Migs keeps playing. I wonder what Karius and Ward must be thinking to themselves. "I am on the bench or in the stands for this guy? Really? " Yeah, Really. Cos Klopp has made a mess of this GK issue, he will bear the brunt of it if he keeps playing Migs. Cou did not play well last night and frankly, he seemed to lose the ball to much and get bullied by Winks of all people. Spurs are the most balanced team in the PL and City are not a patch on them in that respect. This is what Klopp is trying to do here as Spurs is IMO, who we should emulate cos the checkbook managers (utd and City) are very unbalanced and have issues. Spurs seemingly, have NO weaknesses.
