      Hes finished now I think.

      It would be nice if he could add something in games as a sub, but hes but rubbish since that chelsea worldie.

      Yep. I said after the Wolves game I'd be happy to never see him start another game for us.

      Totally shot.

      One of my favourite players but he simply cannot function in our side anymore.

      My problem with Danny is that when he comes on he drops too deep, when Firmino does it there is urgency and a forward-thinking mentality behind it, but with Danny it is lethargic and highly counterproductive.

      I think his appearances would be more effective if he placed himself right on the opposing CB's and came short to interchange with the rest of the team, and on occasion make the runs in behind, doesn't necessarily need to be getting the ball for these runs but would help create space for the others.

      With due to respect to him, he's offering nothing at the moment. He should not be given a new contract.

      Thought apart from a few good touches early on, offered nothing in a massive game for us vs Newcastle.
      Too big a drop in standard from our regular front three to Daniel.
      Looks like is trying to write cheques his body and ability can't cash anymore.
      Need to improve our backup options, and think Jürgen will in summer - in saying that, thought Studge would've been gone a couple of seasons back, so who knows.

      I will seriously question Klopp's sanity if he offers Stu a contract extension.

      He’s a player that needs to be playing regularly to integrate and make an impact. I just don’t think he will play regularly here.

      Should have stuck that ball in the back of the net. Could not have been set up for him any better. Left peg, smash it in Danny, not into Row f**king Z.

      If he's not sticking those away, or at least hitting target, then he's not giving us enough cause he does almost nothing else these days :(

      Agree there.

      You cannot expect Sturridge to come into this side (that is not set up for a Striker) and play his A game. He needs regular minutes. He needs opportunities to gel with the team, and importantly, they with him. Then we can judge him. These bit part roles that he plays are no real indication. As you say, he won't get that here. He hasn't. So he needs to be replaced.

      Which one? I don't recall seeing many misses - maybe 2? (stream did die briefly on a couple of occasions so it possible I missed it). However, Salah also missed badly, in particular the one where Sturridge was fuming that he did not pass it to him to score.

      In any case, Sturridge generally misses his first couple of efforts. When you watch him, you'll see that he is one of those who likes to take shots to gauge the conditions, movement of the ball, and get his accuracy right. He'll miss a couple, and then start hitting the target. It's normal for him. That's why I was even more surprised with that screamer vs Chelsea as it was his first shot - and it was perfect. That's not usual for him at all.  ;D

      There was one that rolled right to him and he was dead center, he skyed it over the bar, it's a chance he was burying routinely back when he was playing with Suarez, Coutinho and Sterling. Although it was a pretty bad miss, I actually wasn't surprised because he really was almost trying to hard at times, trying to make an impact knowing his time is limited. I feel for the guy, but his injury history and his lack of a real pressing style of play meant he was likely never going to fit into this Klopp side. I still applaud him for keeping his head down though and never kicking up a fuss.

      There's a very simple answer to that, who would pay £20 - £30 million on a player who not even play half a season. Plus his wages would of scared some teams off.

      If he starts we won't win, the most natural finisher in our team can't hit a barn door at the moment.
      I'd start Ox and Shaq behind Sadio.

      I don't see how Ox can give you 90 minutes or close to it. At best he's on the bench.
