      Yepp can't argue with that. We haven't been linked with but I just like him as a player and feel that he can still do a good job as am. That's just me tho.

      Agreed - lovely player. Just far from convinced would get a look in for us.

      Testimony to the level we’re playing at I think.

      Lazy in training and liked to give it billy big bollocks.
      Thought he'd made it because he got a move here, then proceeded to f**k it up by acting the c**t.

      Don’t know where this has actually come from - not ever seen anything remotely like it from anyone who is “reliable”. Also seemed like he respected the club and those around him whenever he spoke.

      Unless you have something different on him that I’ve missed and you can show me?

      It was pretty well reported at the time.  Not too bothered to look up any sources at this point in time, especially since he’ll never pull on a red shirt for us ever again anyway. Not even sure why this is a “rumor”.

      The only thing that came out about him being lazy was from one of those silly SoccerAM Q&A where either Lucas or Kuyt said he was the laziest trainer. But yeah, I read nothing or seen anything that suggested he felt he was above others, and I do recall people getting annoyed with him hanging out with Enrique. Lol!

      Edit: can't find the video, but I'm 99.9% sure it was said by a player or 2 before.

      I'm really pessimistic about our chances to win the PL if we don't buy some cover in attack. If one of our front 3 gets injured for 2-3 weeks we'll be in serious trouble. We still have to play against Man U and Chelsea, and have the CL...w e don't have the squad to compete against Man City, it's clear. We still need another striker/winger. You know what haunts me? The souvenir of relying on Lallana to replace Salah in the CL final. Never again should that happen.


      We’ve got Shaq who can fit in there with Ox slotting in the middle.

      Squad is doing fine. Chill and enjoy. 

      Your pessimism is just  your worries / neuroses cos it’s been so long and you want it so bad.

      After this game against Leicester, I fear that I might be right. We had Salah, Firmino, Mane and Shaqiri on the field today, we needed something fresh and who do we get in? Tadah! Lallana, our Saviour...

      Sturridge is a great striker but has not been managed properly IMO.

      In brief, our chances of winning the league are very vulnerable now that Klopp has decided to continue with such a thin squad.

      Dont care, I’m going to say it again; Nabil Fekir.

      Clear as daylight once again that we are missing a player like that in the team. Instead we had Bobby dropping back deeper than the midfield to get the ball because there was absolutely no creativity coming from the midfield.

      But hey, he’s got a gammy knee that may be an issue or it may not be an issue. We’ll just stick with Lallana and Sturridge on the bench getting paid 100k+ a week to be injured every other game.
      I’d rather we took a chance with a player who may or may not have a potential injury (pretty much like every player as there’s never a guarantee), than resorted to throwing on players that actually are injured more often than not and this part is certainly in the case of Lallana, a player that will have no impact on the game at all.

      Or it could just be frustration from the game...

      My preaching. But now it's too late. I figure Jürgen waits & hopes for Ox. I can also see them wait how Fekir holds over the whole season and depending on Ox might make a move for him in the summer. Still, if we play with TAA, Milner and Lovren today, we might win, with Gomez we are CL contenders. It's impossible outside of City, PSG and Barca to feature a team so deep that 3-4 injured starters don't matter.

      So true, we don't have anyone in the midfield that's prepared to shoot from outside the area anymore.

      We try to create the perfect goal.

      Shaqiri.
      Trouble is, deep opposition find it relatively easy to close down the player and block shooting options.

      That's the thing, I'm afraid it could be not enough. We can't depend on ox, coming back from long injury, he will need time to get into form. I would even claim that he would be his best next season.

      All I am saying is that strengthen squad now can only increase our chances to win the league. I'm 32 year and I don't have memories from the last time we won the league. It's a huge deal, why gamble it?
      the scouts would have eyes on few players, so it won't be a panic buy in that sense. Just a player who can make a impact when needed.

      Here's the problem: If Klopp now buys a new guy that's saying to the guys of that position: you are not good enough for me, I want better. It destroys their confidence and will (chemistry). How would u feel if your girlfriend told you she just dates a new guy? That can kill off a lot and if that new guy doesn't click ASAP (like VVD) and Klopp has to rely on his usual players you got problems...Jürgen wants to avoid that risk within the season and I think he's right.

      One thing that is clear that needs addressing is the midfield, it won’t be this transfer window but in the summer it’s a must.

      Out of our CMs; Fab, Hendo, Milly, Gini and Keita, they’ve managed just a combined total of 7 assists between them in the league. Hendo, hasn’t contributed a single assist.
      To put that into perspective - Trent, Robbo and Virgil have a total of 12 between them. One of them is a CB and one has missed a number of games through injury.

      Salah, playing most of the season as the CF, has 8 assists alone. Bobby has 5, Shaqiri 4 and Mane 2.
      Our biggest threat from the midfield is Fab, and he’s a defensive midfielder by trade.

      My point is, the midfield is essentially being completely bypassed. Milly leads the way on assists out of the midfielders and that is just 3. That the same number as Virgil.

      In terms of goals scored, our CMs have a total of 5, Milly again leading the way on 3 and not all from open play.

      Our midfield has some work horses in it but the lack of creativity and goal threat from them is worrying, very worrying. We’ve gotten better as a whole unit with the departure of Coutinho, but his goals and assists are far from being replaced.
      Look at the midfield vs Leicester and it was screaming out for a creative midfielder, we had Bobby dropping all the way back because the others were getting nothing at all to feed off.
      I can’t remember the last time we had a midfield with such little creativity and goal threat. We’ve always had at least 1 played in there, be it Gerrard, Alonso, Coutinho or whoever, but ever since Coutinho went we haven’t had that. Ox comes the closest but he’s more of a driving player forward, pick the ball up and launch a shot at goal, he’s not a creator for others to score on a regular basis...and he’s been injured for nearly a year.

      Keita was meant to be the answer to the problem but he’s been one of our worst players this season.

      Klopp wanted Fekir in the summer and I don’t believe for a second that he walked away from that deal 100% satisfied that we were filling the gap. It’s our biggest weakness this season and something we really need to sort in the summer. It’s amazing how many goals we’ve still managed to score, a testament to just how good our front 3 and our fullbacks are.
