      I'm saying this seriously, do you fancy anyone and praise someone ???

      Of course.  Coutinho, Sturridge, Can, Clyne, Firmino etc.  they are all cracking players, players who should be the spine of the team and who we should build the team around. 

      Mignolet, Moreno, Henderson, Skrtel, Benteke, Flanagan, Allen etc, all run a spectrum from absolute sh*te to just not good enough and should be gotten rid of posthaste.

      Only mediocre midfielders having a purple patch and only if they play for another club.

      Diame would have been a fine addition to the club...there's real talent there.

      You think Kante is a "mediocre player having a purple patch"?

      Jon is better than Moreno defensively but still should just be a back up player which means a upgrade is required at left back this summer.

      For me that's about right. Jon is nothing more than a squad player. I don't see him at the top top level that we are looking for. Good defensively but on his few appearances so far has given the ball away too carelessly at times and it cost us for the first goal yesterday, not helped of course by receiving it in the first place from Can (and compounded by how deep we had fallen thanks to Skrtel's inability to step forward). Too slack in possession at the moment and I think Klopp realises that as well when he had to temper praise of Flanagan from journalists after the Man City by saying something along the lines of 'there were issues - giving the ball away etc'.

      I agree that he was very ordinary and at fault for the first goal but he will pick himself up for the next one and hopefully smash those Spurs fuckers.

      He'll know he had a stinker and I'm sure he will want to make ammends. Look out Spurs.

      So Flanno is behind Randall in the pecking order then ? This has me confused.

      Must be because it's very very odd that he isn't getting selected

      He's been out for two years, so as said above, Klopp would need to condition him right.

      He may be pretty average but still a class above Randall.

      Really says it all about him.

      So is he injured again or something?

      As others have said Klopp is probably trying to make sure he is completely recovered rather than risk him unnecessarily.

      The other thing is that Flanagan isn't eligible for the Europa games, so Klopp may be giving Randall a bit of experience just in case he is needed?

      Yeah Debs said this to me when I was questioning Randall's inclusion over Flanno and it makes absolutely perfect sense.
