What's going on with Liverpool? You hear a lot about injuries but this first team (Jota, Kieta, Salah, Shaqiri, Robertson...) should be doing way better and they have a bench full of first team players (Mane, Thiago, Fabino, Oxlade, Origi, Alexander-Arnold...).  I don't get it. When you compare this team to the one we played against Burnely or the bench we had against Brighton. 

Agree, I think there's a couple of things going on, whilst the front three is pretty stable the rest changes match by match and like an F.A.Cup side with lots of changes it doesn't gel but mainly for whatever reason they haven't got that electric tempo going forward or that intensity of pressing, possibly due to no real pre-season and the back to back games, they look lukewarm (apart from when they played us at Anfield!) and a shadow of themselves. However as you say there's enough names there on paper to be a very good side. Then there's confidence which I'd suggest is shriveled at the moment.

'Unity is strength YNWA' banner on an aeroplane.

 

This is the same club that sent death threats to Gerrard and targeted his family home when he said he wanted to leave. The same club where Karius and Lovren got death threats for some bad performances.

 

Unbelievable lol

A Fulham win here is humongous.

 

Would put us 10pts clear of them with 10 to play.

No one in their right mind would have guessed that.

 

Probably about 5000/1 :frantics:

I know one bitter blue who is very noisy whenever the ECL draw is made and it's not easy for you, yet mysteriously quiet about conspiracies when it's more favourable.

 

Did you see our match thread yesterday?

I spent a bit of time on your thread yesterday. I enjoy getting a different perspective on the game and threw in a few comments. Thankfully, I didn’t get too much abuse, probably because I was supportive of your team. It’s interesting to get a take on my team from others too. Sure, there are always a few bitter folks out there, and regards conspiracies, I can only advise not to read to much of what the media write in regard to what they spin against the facts. They are in it for the clickbait revenue remember, no more, no less.

Unless they win this, surely Klopp is on the brink? They could be as low as 10th by next week. 9th is pretty much a given with two games still to come each for Villa and Spuds.

Looking at some of these liverpool b list players - Phillips, Williams, Jones - are garbage. 

 

Also demonstrates how difficult it is, even for  big clubs, to have a squad of ready made replacements sitting in reserve as understudies. 

 

The fact we have reliable players like Fuchs, Morgan, Amartey, Choudhury, Perez and even Under as third or fourth, even fifth choice options is remarkable

Jones is not garbage. 

 

The others though...

Is klopp a fraud? 

I think it's hard to call him a fraud after winning the champions league and premier league. However he's a level below Pep, Ancelotti and Mourinho in terms of premier league managers. They've proved themselves to be serial winners while Klopp hasn't as of yet.

I know. But what's your point? My point was about the difficulty of creating squad depth. 

My point is if you were to bring in Wes now against say Man City.  You do the maths.

He's won a champions league with a premier league team in fairness to him
