      Gets away with a lot of stick as he scores the odd worldie, he is as inconsistent as the likes of Lallana, brilliant when they feel like it but when the going gets tough stink the place out.

      But hey why worry when you have a £150K a week salary.

      Big time charlies. That's all they are.

      To think some put Coutinho up there with the likes of Gerrard, Suarez, etc is an offence to Liverpool FC and its great tradition of fearless terrors up front. The day Coutinho and his little mate Firmino grow some balls and actually start performing against small physical teams will be the day when pigs start to fly.

      I agree both he and Lallana duck out of so many challenges, its bloody embarrassing.

      Lightweight pussy, him and Firmino.

      Nice feet but not a winner and can't put in the graft against physical sides. Not what this club needs.

      Really poor first half vs Leicester, passing was off, was getting brushed off the ball to easily, tho improved in 2nd half and got a goal.

      Hasn't look the same since he got the ankle injury. Or the 200grand a week. Was SO good before xmas, just hope he can get back there.

      What is going on with Phil just now? I think he's been absolutely shocking since coming back from injury. Constant mis-controls and wrong options taken. If we had a serious alternative to him I'd bench him you can't be taking 10-15 games to find form. Maybe Ojo to give us a bit of width on the left and find a way of tucking Phil inside a bit...

      Probably the worst performance I've seen from Coutinho. Utterly dire. Being substituted by a relatively untried (yet talented) 17 year old has got to raise some massive alarm bells.

      Barcelona as a holiday destination? Cos they sure as hell aren't going to go anywhere near him given his form since he returned from injury.

      Think it should be a massive kick up his arse.

      Needs to do better, and I think he will.

      Agree that was his probably his worst game in a Liverpool shirt, for a long long time if not in his whole career with us.

      Fair play to Klopp though for taking him off though if it were any other team than Citeh next up I'd bench him but he has an amazing record against them

      Highest paid player at the club, your having a laugh.

      Young Ben put in more effort in his short cameo than Phil did during his hour on the pitch.

      Just a shame there is no quality in the squad because at the moment he doesn't deserve a start.

      Another game where Coutinho simply got muscled out of it. The lad is having a torrid run since coming back from injury but I've no doubt he will bounce back. Hopefully in our next game.

      I think he will never become world class on his own, get some good players around him and he will shine. He's not a player you can build a team around, but with class players around him, he will be a very good cog in our wheel.

      At the moment he seems to be crumbling under the weight of expectation from both us the fans, and himself.

      If he was at his best every game he'd be running out for Barca by now, he has always been inconsistent, however he can still win a game for us, or unlock a door at any given moment, and we don't have many of those on our books to be seriously thinking of dropping him for long.

      We want consistency and world class levels? Play him in the midfield 3 and have players around him! It'll allow him to have a better view of the play ahead. He is a natural born creator, his best attributes are his composure, vision and dribbling from deep, not speed, 1v1's or crosses! I really do think he is wasted on the left, but also, having him there and when he drops deep really doesn't help the attacking balance.

      How can he be the worst player on the pitch when he didn't even play? ;)

      Absolute joke of a performance.

      Woeful attitude - whether he didn't give a sh*t or just needs to toughen up, either or it is the kind of spineless vacuous characters that is the precise reason why we can't win trophies. He needs to learn a thing or two about this club and the great characters who have preceded him, maybe then he will start to buck up his ideas.

      Says everything when an untested but remarkably talented seventeen year old kid comes on and looks more experienced. Maybe it's the advantage of priming our academy products who have been brought up as died in the wool reds, but Woodburn seemed to realise the importance of today's match much more than an experienced pro like Coutinho. Drive, determination and passion - you can be guaranteed these displays from all academy products, so hopefully it's the shot in the arm that a slacker like Coutinho needs.

      Barca bound - yeah only the deluded would think he's good enough for them at the moment. Woeful form, and he needs to sort it out quick.

      I must admit, my reaction to him coming off the ground and being replaced by Woodburn, was that he looked relieved to be coming off. That's just my thoughts on his facial expression as he sat down on the bench.

      Cou is a typical example of a player who signs a new bumper contract and immediately loses his desire and starts coasting.

      Then there's players like Lallana who up their game to justify their new bumper contract.

      I would drop Cou after the City game if he fails to perform again until he starts to show some desire.

      Hopefully the International break does him some good because it's getting to the point where he is becoming a hindrance.

      Never mind his lack of offensive output he is not even contributing defensively.
      Continually Leaving Milner exposed no great surprise he is getting hooked early.

      Yeah something is not right in his head, if I was Jürgen I'd either give him a bollocking and bench him or give him a patented Jürgen super special hug. If its because his head has been turned by Barca then he is not doing himself any favors in the way he's playing now unless he's trying to drive his price down.

      I don't think his head has been turned, but if it has don't think he would bring down his price that is not Coutinho.  I think he is just having a horrible dip in form it happens to every player.

      Think he needs to refocus....head seems to be away with the fairies right now.
      Look at when Fernando (or fernandinho) missed the chance into the side netting, Fernand(inh)o was goal side of Coutinho and Coutinho just leaned over with dissapointment they'd scored....only to turn around happy that they'd missed. That still wasn't a wake up call enough for him to buck his ideas up!
