      Forgot people weren’t allowed to say anything negative about how some players simply aren’t good enough for us.
      Come on mate, he’s done sod all for us for most of his time with us, apart from one good half season after Klopp first arrived. The money he’s getting to not actually do anything I think justifies people’s opinions, especially when he’s clearly taking a space in the team away from someone who should actually start pushing on to the first team. Nothing personal against him, not for me or anyone else but it’s simply time he left and was forgotten.

      Thats not whats happenning. People are turning on a player for no other reason then he is injured. Hes defo good enough to be here no doubt but injuries are killing him and, like Sturridge, people now turning on him which is tge complete opposite of what we like to tell ourselves in our anthem

      Surprised to read some of the comments in here. Dissapointing to hear he is currently injured but i'm assuming its a small knock? The lad needs more time, he has been out a long time. I think he can still find his form but he looks like he needs a proper spell clear of injuries and minutes under his belt.

      Was a really good player, but he is past his best Scott.

      I'm not so sure Scott. He's a quality footballer but I just think the team has went beyond him now and I can't really see him as anything more of a squad option in the near future.

      Would be surprised if he's even with us in a years time.

      We need squad options though mate. If he can keep himself fit for the next couple of months then i'll make my own judgement. Some players take a while to come back from injury and he has had a couple of nasty ones to get past. Fully agree that the team is obviously better now but I also read people complaining about the lack of creativity and guile in our midfield three so if he can get back to near his form of 2 years ago he will play some games imo.

      I can see both points of view here, and even agree with both to one extent or another.

      Unless he can get fit, and stay fit and rediscover his best form, I don't see much of a future for him here, which is a pity, because when he's on his game, he's a fine player.

      I for one has always maintain three things about Adam Lallana and it has noting to do with his injuries, and they are...

      1) his he will always chase the ball down

      2) he may have good feet but is a poor mans Benayoun

      3) Has no end product, Final ball is all over the place

      Never rated him, simple no good enough for this team

      Assuming he gets fit again who would you take out of the team to make room for his rehabilitation? Did you see even the slightest sign in the games he played this season that he was a positive for the team?
      He is now a sh*t injury prone player who has never had much end product anyway apart from a quite nifty Cruyff turn which is usually utterly ineffective.

      Was an ok player, not great and not even that good if we are honest, we have far better options in midfield now.

      Ask yourself the question is the team massively impacted by his absence at the moment?

      Lallana is a weird one, he will play great after 7 or 8 games but that's too long to take to get back up to speed. As soon as he gets good again he gets injured! He is like Michael Owen in the respect he can get injured doing nothing! He's past his peak now so he's unlikely to get better next season than this season. He has a contract until 2020, he might retire at that time I guess.

      Lallana picked up a knock in yesterday training session I think, it’s the other lads who missed through illness.

      I think that Lallana doesn't have a serious future at Liverpool. He is just too injury prone and is almost impossible for him to find any kind of form. He should be put on loan, or sold.

      Thought he was starting to look a bit brighter, sharper on the ball, then disappeared - hope he's not having what Studge is having …

      Do you know what I would if he can keep fit get Lallana in for Leicester still an important player pressing and retaining possession would have him in before Keita any day of the week on present form

      He won't get a run of games and he'll certainly be gone in the Summer.

      Like Stu he's too slow and injury prone I'm afraid.

      Thing is though, 1) he isn’t good enough to have a run of games. 2) he’s never fit enough to have a run of games.

      When we’ve used up our main substitutions, in today’s case Fab, the likes of Lallana and everyone else on the bench is essentially a lucky dip as to who gets on next. I think I’d have genuinely preferred us to have gone for Origi and launched some long balls into the box.

      For the evolution of this team we need to phase out the likes of Lallana, Sturridge and Origi next season. The failed Fekir signing would have seen the back of Lallana and perhaps it's somebody we will go back for in the Summer. We could then sell Lallana and use Shaq in the role he should occupy as impact sub.

      The bench at present ain't up to much. It's very hard for Klopp to change a game with his bench.

      He is a shadow of his former self mate. I still think he is good at holding the ball and not giving away possession, but physically he cannot cope with the pace anymore and it is affecting his general play. He was really good 2016/2017 season but then injury hit him and never recovered ever since .

      One good moment that led to us scoring. Other than that, usual nothing performance from him. We got lucky with the offside flag.

      Did no bad than any of the other players. Firmino, Salah, Keita were shocking yesterday. Not fair to pick him out when the whole team was dosh.
