      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.


      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.

      If Liverpool FC are to sign one player next season it has to be Brooks from Bournemouth. If I have ever seen a lad look like a young Stevie G it’s this man

      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...

      Tonight was the type of game that a Gerrard or Coutinho moment could have changed. We need that type of sh*t, like.

      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.

      Saving 6 months worth of wages on the waste of space actually seems like we’ve gotten a good deal.

      Bet he plays about 3 times for Fulham before being shifted elsewhere in the summer.

      I agree with your overall point, but when it comes to assist to me that means very little as a player can have a shot on goal it hits another player and falls to a third how scores, would you really call that and assist by the second player...?
      Apart from that I'm with you a 100%

      Just because we are 5 points clear doesn’t mean that we are the finished article and don’t need to improve. Ask Klopp and he will tell you we still have a lot of improving to do.
      It’s one thing getting success for a season, I.e. Leicester, but it’s a completely different scenario sustaining that success. The reason City are viewed as the bench mark now is because these last 2 years, they haven’t settled for what they have. For us to continue this until the end of the season and beyond into coming seasons isn’t by resting on our laurels just because we are top of the league, it’s by scrutinising performances that simply aren’tgood enough, by looking for ways to continue to improve the team. Otherwise we risk what happened under BR; come so close to winning it, arguably by fluke getting that close given the squad we had, failing to improve and capitalise on our position to go for it again the following season and as a result, end up setting ourselves further back than we had been for a long time.
      Klopp and all his staff will continue look at ways to improve the team, why can’t the fans? Why do the fans have to pretend that everything at the club is perfect? When despite how good we are this season and how amazing the season has been so far, you can always be better. There is no room for complacency because things can soon change. 5 points clear now means absolutely nothing if we lose the next 2 games and City win theirs.

      We are all at the age now I expect where we’ve seen the club come so close to winning the league at some point in the last 29 years, but narrowly miss out for one reason or another, that we have a right to be cautious of these things and not take it for granted. This year we have our best chance for a damn long time, it’s not being negative what gets posted, it’s saying what we hope happens or what we would like to see happen to ensure we don’t once again have the experience of getting so close but just missing out.

      Haven’t seen him play in a very long time, but I read an article about where it’s gone wrong for James Rodriguez, Bayern apparently unlikely to take up their option to sign him, Real not overly keen on having him back and could be available for a cut price deal in the summer.

      Realistically I don’t see us signing him, but anybody watched him, could be the man to link our attack and midfield?

      No he’s a petulant little git with terrible work rate and ethic. He was a one hit WC wonder signing that hasn’t worked out at two massive clubs now.
