      Nonsense, he rotates the midfield quite a lot, even the CB's quite often, the reason he doesn't rotate the forwards is quite simply because he doesn't have any quality backup in the squad.  This notion that its impossible to have a 4th top quality forward in a team that plays with 3 forwards is utter crap. That 4th forward would not just sit on the bench all season, they'd be pushing our current front three and if one has a dip in form they'd replace them or if one is a bit tired/injured they'd be replaced or if Klopp wants to make a substitution during the game he'd finally have a decent option instead of sending Origi lumbering on to do absolutely f**k all.

      Klopp does not rotate the CB's often unless he is forced to due to injuries. Had Gomez not gotten injured earlier in the season he would have continued to start the majority of games next to Virgil.

      Also had Fabinho not gotten injured he would have most certainly started most games.

      The only players I see getting rotated occasionally are Gini or Hendo with Ox or Keita.

      The front three are never rotated in the league unless through injury.

      I'm not saying we SHOULDN'T sign another striker as I don't rate Origi and was disappointment we didn't go for Werner.

      I'm simply basing my opinion on the last 3 seasons of evidence that Klopp does not like to rotate his front line and therefore will not pay big money for a top forward until he is ready to phase out one of them which will be a couple of seasons away at least.

      You may not like this but it's something you will need to accept as Klopp is not going to change his approach to team management.

      Won't be going anywhere on holiday at all, still far too dangerous imo, will be celebrating my birthday on 24th July and the first time ever it will still be the footy season, rather than pre-season, so that'll do me  ;D

      LFC Player Threads / Re: Curtis Jones Player Thread
      « Last post by Robby The Z on Yesterday at 05:14:52 pm »
      Serious question for you regarding Curtis and the Merseyside accent: I've noticed on visits before that the accent is different from different parts of the city. Someone from Crosby sounds different to me than someone from Birkenhead, but maybe that's just me. Curtis' accent sounds different to me altogether (and maybe it is just the way he speaks and I don't know the difference). Can anyone shed some light on if his manner of speaking reflects a certain part of the city, a generational youth thing, or something else?

      Any help to an outsider who is fascinated with the culture of the city, is appreciated.

      Hmm, I'm not sure, City's defence is pretty weak and Real Madrid's defence pretty good, both have very good attacks with City having the better midfield, not that Real's is bad. I think Real Madrid have a good shot of winning the tie but even if they don't there are plenty of good teams left in the competition who can beat City.

      The Madrid defence weren’t good enough to stop City scoring 2 against them at their place in the first leg.

      My money is on City for that tie. They won the first leg so already have an advantage with the away goals. Madrid, although they are winning, they aren’t exactly hammering in a lot of goals; the last 3 games have all been 1-0 and in the last 5 games they’ve won by more than 1 goal once (2-0).

      I can’t see them going to City and getting more than 1 goal.

      The Kop / Re: Premier League or Champions League

      Winning the league takes precedence over every other competition whether it be the Mickey Mouse cup, the football League cup, the FA cup, the Europa thingy or indeed the biggest club competition as is the Champions League,
      Winning the league, the so called Premier League with its new hat on is still the top most league of all, it is a measure of how your club, it’s players fair over 38 league games, it is the most difficult league to win above any other in Europe or indeed the world imo,

      This particular version of the League began in 1992 when it became the ‘Premier League’ having split from the original Football League which originates from 1888, it still remains the top division in England despite having a new monicker, of which we have won 19 Times.


      As the great Bill Shankly said, this is our bread & butter, you can have your cups and what not, but the league is the one we want each and every season without question, and so it should remain.

      Klopp is not a manager like Pep who likes to rotate I thought that is clear by now.

      He likes to stick to a regular starting 11 for the most part unless there are injuries. He does not rotate for tactical reasons or competition for places.

      Also the more I hear from Klopp the more I'm now sure we won't be making big money signings this Summer as he seems very excited about integrating our young players in to the senior team.

      Therefore I believe he will look to use Brewster next season on the bench for PL/CL games and to start domestic cup games.

      Nonsense, he rotates the midfield quite a lot, even the CB's quite often, the reason he doesn't rotate the forwards is quite simply because he doesn't have any quality backup in the squad.  This notion that its impossible to have a 4th top quality forward in a team that plays with 3 forwards is utter crap.
