      funny how the self righteous pricks want to educate others about Milly yet they havent been in touch with Jürgen who wanted him to stay.

      Is that the same Jürgen who stated he was happy with his midfield options last summer

      Or the same Jürgen who clearly wanted Henderson to sign a new contract

      Of the same Jürgen that clearly rates Jones

      Or do we only call Jürgen when it’s a view point you agree with

      Yea your right, he was behind Milner actually, so suppose Virg is now Vice Captain then.

      The team at one point released a captaincy order. With 5 of them still with the team not sure if everyone behind Milly moves up a spot or if they'll add a 6th, re-vote on a new order, etc

      I was surprised back then that 6 captains deep and Salah was not voted as one of them. If they backfill Milner to get back to 6 i have to imagine it would be Salah. He and Fab would have the most tenure of the main players left.

      So as I said - does that mean Klopp is free from any criticism then ?

      Is he faultless

      Klopp doesn't see Salah as a captain though, remember the European game a couple of years back where he gave the armband to Trent over Mo?

      It might just be a case of Mo not being what the sort of leader the club wants. We all know Salah to be a greedy b***ard who is chasing individual records as much as anything and maybe that's not the best way to lead the collective.

      Nobody is faultless but in a football context Jürgen is light years ahead of the majority.

      So when Klopp makes an error then it’s all ok to be critical of that error then

      What error has Klopp made that we are discussing? I've lost track. Also seems like the Klopp thread would be the place to discuss Klopp errors? Unless they pertain to James Milner.

      Yup, and Salah had a small hissy fit about it.

      I believe the captain hierarchy was voted on by the players, though. So it is them who do not see Salah as captain material.

      Yea.

      Maybe he is not as vocal in dressing room and on pitch, but his attitude to training etc. is 2nd to none. Maybe hes more a do it by example guy to the players.

      The point still stands that the club, whoever it is making these sort of decisions, doesn't (or at least didn't) see Mo as captain material. Whatever the criteria is Mo didn't fit it as well as others.

      Whether there'll be a reshuffle now that Milner and Firmino have left remains to be seen but I don't think Salah will be in the running because, on top of the day Trent got given the armband for the first time so have Bobby, Ali and Robbo in games that Mo also started.
