      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.

      Really ? Can't agree, don't see any difference in the way he has played

      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.



      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.

      No smoke and all that stuff mate.
      Does present a different picture than that given by the other dubious Spanish sources that insist our man is as good as gone

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

      Trade! If Barca still wants him, then let them give you someone in exchange, e.g. Suarez plus 20 Mio. €. I'd do this trade.

      The Express go with Barca being convinced they can get Coutinho in January for £132m with a down payment of £75m.

      The Mirror reports the LFC board have promised Klopp he can use every penny of the potential £130m for rebuilding.

      2017-18 LFC Competitive games

      Without Coutinho P7 W5 D1 L1 (71% win)

      With Coutinho P9 W2 D5 L2 (22% win)

      Think I'd expect more impact from a £130M signing?
