Hello Ed01, maybe you and others can chime in here. I know a lot has been said about the cause of LFC's probs this season and where they come from. What I have been mostly annoyed about is how pundits are looking for other causes as to why we have issues whereas the cause of our issues is pretty obvious: Injuries, right? And each time I see pundits trying to say "Oh Klopp should do this or that or the other" instead of saying what is obv., has been peeing me off for weeks now.

I watched the Anfield Wrap podcast on youtube with Neil Atkinson and Rory Smith (brilliant guy) and he gave a take that I had not even looked at. Smith said that the cause of our issues is pretty obv. YET boring in the eyes of the media. He said that the cause of our issues News Flash: Injuries, yeah? However in the media, there is only so far you can go with that hence, it becomes boring.

Therefore, the media has to create another or other narratives to "create" other causes for the public and the pundits to feed on esp. online. Hence, they attack Klopp on this or that or "Why does he not play a 442 or a back 3 (as if we have the personel or the bodies to play such formations cos of you know, the injuries? )3 Or the fav from Roy Keane "He is the manager. It's his job to fix it" (funny how that NEVER applies to his buddy OGS) ". Therefore, this is all fake news drummed up by the media by design and dishonesty.

Now Rory Smith said that it is tough for Klopp to "change" stuff cos for the most part, we play well in games BUT either don't take our chances or make mistakes that eventually cost us games so it is tough for Klopp to do say Now, he did say that there are some changes Klopp could do to make us less predictable and we saw a bit of that last night vs Sheff. He played Mane central, Jones on the left and Salah on the right in attack and Bobbie in the 10 and it gave us a bit more impetus going forward and created chances and won the game. Thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - not sure Smith is right about the changes there. That was more of a natural rotation and movement than any particular set up. Jones always gets forward, Mane often drifts central and Bobby always plays the 10. It was just working better than normal because we were making better decisions with our balls in the final third. It was just a case of doing what we were doing anyway but better. Just like when Paisley took over from Shanks, he told the players nothing would change, they would keep doing what they were doing but they would do it better. That's all we needed.

Smith is 100% right about the media. They barely talk about Sheffield United now because they have struggled with injury problems and it is not going to bring in clicks by talking about it. Unlike Liverpool, there is not a huge media machine that requires fresh LFC stories to be churned out, so the Blades can just be forgotten about. Liverpool have far too big a following to be forgotten about, so they have to look for new angles all the time and new narratives to bring in page views.}

Thanks, Ed for your input. I do agree that we were doing what we normally do but only better. I was the one who came to the conclusion of a change by Klopp during the game cos it seemed the forwards stayed in those positions a bit longer than just occasional changes in-game to keep the defence guessing.

I was thinking the same thing about Sheff. Utd regarding injuries. I could be wrong but along with us, they are the other team that has really struggled all season long with injuries BUT since no one cares about Sheff Utd nor Chris Wilder and they don't generate clicks, no one is giving their them as hard a time as Klopp and LFC are getting. Like you said, you got to go after the big fish to get clicks.

{Ed001's Note - exactly and we are one of the biggest fish for clickbait.}

Ed01 please, did you do a match review of the West Ham game yet or did I miss it? Cheers, man.

Thanks Ed missed that. I'm glad you mentioned Phillips defending first free kick. Could have been a var goal otherwise. Likewise, gini in dm and thiago further forward. Gini I think klopp trusts him a bit more esp with hendo at cb in that position. However, surely this means Fab can be returned to play dm. He has been missed, his proactive closing down and reading of the game sets up our play. A midfield of hendo thiago and fab?

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed!}

Much appreciated, Ed01. This is that I don't have a PC yet so I surf the internet hence this site, on my phone. Therefore, cannot bookmark this page for now.

Ed is correct. Canavinga is set for RM and has been for a couple of years now. PSG tried to take him and he even rejected them, I think.

I read a while ago that even beforeNiko Kovac was hired, Naggelsman was who Bayern wanted since Klopp was out of the picture. Now if Flick takes the Germany job and Klopp stays at LFC which he will IMO then, they could look to him again.

Neither are injury prone if the injuries they have are impact injuries caused by nasty challenges or freak injuries like the one that took Gomez out this season. Matip, Studge, Agger, Keita? They are injury prone due non impact injuries like knocks and niggles.

With you there, Mark. I don’t think he is anywhere near good enuff for where we want to go as a team. On the Arsenal game, I literally forgot he was playing. As for those thinking or intimating that we are interested in him cos Klopp spoke to him after a game then, it is simply people trying to make 3 + 3 equal 9.

We would have signed 60 players already if that was the yardstick for our recruitment cos Klopp talks to players after games near all the time.

VAR is a tool available to the ref to use when required. The ref does not rely on it cos they are actually too busy officiating the game itself and same goes for linesmen. This is how it is implemented everywhere else in Europe.

I the PL, VAR is an active part of officiating where the ref and linesmen don’t actually have to officiate the game fully cos they are relying on the VAR to do these parts for them. And also, cover for their stupid mistakes.

Dembele? No freaking way. The guy is poison and the only reason he is still at Barcelona is cos not a soul wants to pay what they want for a player that dire off the field and pretty average on it. Konate? Heus more than worth a punt cos his upside is just too great to ignore, IMO.

I would take Raphinha today if he was available. Absolute baller. As for Elliott, we need to b careful cos regardless of his talent, he is still a kid that has to be nurtured for this level we currently play at.
