The decision not to strengthen where we desperately needed it (CB instead of Ox and a Keeper) is now starting to catch up with him.
Transfers aside, his substitutions, both when to bring them on and who comes on for who, has for the most part, not been good enough either. I hope he realises that now, we also need an out and out striker. Firmino has done well enough up there, but it's not his natural position, and it also looks like Sturridge has lost his edge.
I can't comment on his tactics because I'm not knowledgeable enough to put into words what I feel is wrong with them. But I do feel there is something wrong with them. My fears centre around his tactics being too predictable.
It's easy enough to pick out what is wrong after the fact, but I think I'm right in saying that a lot of us have known for a long time that we have needed a new CB, a new keeper and a recognised number 9. Firmino papered over the cracks for a while, but the cracks are not showing through.
Klopp has his work cut out, yet I do not expect that work to begin in January, and by then we might only have another 4th place in the league to play for. Perhaps VvD comes to us in January along with a new striker. I hope so because the natives are starting to get restless and I think it's somewhat warranted.
As for the game last night (Spartak Moscow) and people thinking the players let him down, well it was Klopp who decided to play Karius, that we don't need a new keeper, and it was Klopp who decided to play Firmino up front, and that we don't need a new striker. Firmino has worked short term, but I guess the longer you persist with players playing out of position, the more they are going to look like a player playing out of position. Perhaps Klopp thinks if he plays him long enough up front that it'll become his new natural position. I can see that working, but I don't think Klopp has the luxury of time to see that option work.
