    Absolutely this. We look very predictable and easy to play against. You can't coach a player through every situation, sometimes a player has to take responsibility. 

    I'm starting to wonder if Brendan views himself as being equal to Pep; the latter is known to coach his players meticulously, but he gets results. In our case, we look one dimensional, passing from the back with no real aim or focus, poor ball retention whenever we step out of our own half, wide players without a clue, and so on. The rut we're in is one I believe we can get out of, but it's dependant on Brendan's willingness to adapt his own approaches to the game.


  2. One of the issues is that Brendan isn't playing to Chilwell's strengths. He's not Ricardo; you won't see him dribbling past players and his crossing is as likely to reach his man as it is to scalp the linesman on the opposite side. He's better off running into space and cutting the ball across the box; the same can be said for Justin.


  3. In my opinion, Chilwell could learn a thing or two from Robertson by being more of a **** on the pitch. If he were to show a little more aggression, he wouldn't be bullied so easily by opposition wingers, plus he'd benefit in other areas of his play. He has the athleticism, there's no doubt about that, but his mental game hasn't quite caught up yet.

    They have done at some previous clubs, this is why it might well be a work in progress here. Let's not forget that he hasn't even been here a full year yet and you consider how long it took Klopp to get Liverpool to the behemoth of a team they are now and even Guardiola was all over the place the first season. Our issue is that we have been phenomenal from fairly early on and if we missed out on top 4 then I do worry whether that would effect them and Rodgers to the point of always falling short in the future. If we make top 4, even if we scrape it it will feel like a massive achievement and something to build on. If we miss out, it will be hanging over them all and pressure will truly be on.

    You're spot on about Klopp and it got me thinking about the issue a little more. I did a bit of digging and as it turns out, Liverpool were once in a similar position to us now. Three years ago in January, their form collapsed as they went on to win 1 in 9. At the time, Klopp insisted that it wasn't a physical issue, but rather a mixture of the hectic winter schedule, mental fatigue, and poor decision making. Whatever the reasons for our current slump, we can only hope that Brendan can reinvigorate the team and get us fighting for a place in next season's Champions League.

    I reckon that Soyuncu has told him he must join Leicester and nobody says no to Cags.

    The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.

     

    Translation: Ghezzal/James/King/Slimani to Juventus; Demiral to Leicester. Cags will personally broker the deal.


  6. We clearly threw the game to play mind games with Klopp; his team will see this as a win, they'll whip their dicks out on Instagram to brag about having the title won, and Jurgen will go on to share his childhood schnitzel recipe on all the late night shows. The joke's on him though, as we'll go on to smash them at the King Power, go unbeaten for the rest of the season, and finish strongly with Vardy wearing the Premier League trophy like a condom during the champions ceremony; the home supporters loudly singing 'You'll Never Wank Alone'.
