      I believe that in February Coutinho will belong to a team with a name consisting of 9 letters.

      Bring in Kieta and sell him and buy 8 center backs and 4 keepers. Maybe we can find 2 and 1 out of that group

      Don’t care if he goes in January. Think he’s a fair weather player at this point. When things are going great you get his best, when they aren’t, he plays selfishly. Extraordinary talent when he wants to be though, can’t argue that.

      I know what you mean.

      He's done it all the time with us, when the chips are down he tries to do more and more and more and it becomes predictable and most times counter-productive. Occasionally he'll pull off a worldy and this is what probably reinforces him to do it more.

      I've always had it down as "tries too hard" when the chips are against us. Could be selfishness but I don't honestly believe it is.

      Don't blame him today as he felt he had to drop into midfield to create something, hardly surprising we looked like a pub team in midfield with what Jürgen put out.

      I think the other thing that this game highlighted was that Coutinho performs best further forward, not sure this experiment of playing him in midfield is going to work, I'm not inc the sh*t teams as no doubt he will look great in midfield against the dross.

      In terms of midfield selection, I don't think Klopp had a lot of options today with both Wijnaldum and Lallana (our only genuine #8's right now) injured. The only other option I see is starting Coutinho in midfield and Chamberlain (who was a bright spot for me this game) out wide. In hindsight that might have been the better option, seeing as Chamberlain did well against Trippier. A midfield of Henderson, Can, Milner was never going to work.

      I've been thinking the same thing about Coutinho in midfield. I don't like it at all when he drops deep and tries to get things started from there. We need him in and around the box, not picking up balls at the halfway line. That highlights another problem though, our midfielders (Can, Henderson mainly) just don't seem to be capable to find him between the lines, so he thinks, as you rightly point out, there's no other option for him than to drop deep and make things happen himself. That's just counterproductive because it takes away one of our biggest threats in and around the box.

      Our midfield also seems to lack balance when he plays there. He's like this free roaming player, more a #10 than a #8 in our usual formation, with our other two midfielders limited to the more defensive side of things.

      Hardly an experiment playing him in midfield, Rodgers did it a few times as well.

      Been very self indulgent since he came back.

      Yes he’s bagged a few goals - with his quality he should but he’s not been playing for the team to my eyes.

      How many transfer windows has Klopp had to sort out the backline to atleast show the likes of Coutinho we want to achieve something.

      Been playing for the Barca board it's seems, looks a cert for a Jan move if we continue our current form.

      Personally think we look a lot better with him there , would be even better with a proper dm, when mane is fit he should move back. Gives him more space

      Given the ways things are, would be massive blow to loose him in January.
      Presume we can just say no again if Barca come calling.
      Though if we're still doing poorly, and someone is sniffing around to buy the club, FSG might decide to pocket a cool 100mill in the new year.
      Know he's acted like a sh*t, but imho he's our one outstanding player, love watching him play,  would be absolutely gutted to see him go.

      Iniesta and Rakitic lead the rebellion at Barca insisting there is no need to sign Coutinho.

      Our record without him this season is pretty damn good. Get £100M for him and get a new keeper, defender and Keita early
