      A remnant of the penny-pinching days when we signed cheap "potential" rather than the real deals.

      Probably wouldn't have been as exposed if there had been a midfield in front of him though.

      Just liked we signed Gomez and Robertson, correct? damn those penny pinching days.

      When we signed him I thought he looked like quality but he’s just not progressed.

      For last 18 months he’s really struggled (when fit) with the physicality of the English game.

      There was nothing scientific about Red Star last night - their approach was reminiscent of a low / mid-table Prem side who wanna give one of the big boys a bloody nose.

      Low / mid table prem is quite charitable for me.

      Spot on post though.

      Gomez was 18 playing in a lower league and Robertson cost £10 million from a relegated team.

      Neither were signed as immediate starting 11 players.

      Matip was.

      Matip was.

      And he did well while he was starting and currently is a fantastic depth player to have. He didn't cost anything and do not believe is on a lot of money. We also got Milner on a free and he has been a Klopp favorite. Signing a player on a free or low fee has nothing to do with "penny pinching" and it's a great way to build depth when you're not swimming in oil money.

      I actually think his ground passing is up there with the very best in Europe, if not the best, I don't even think I have seen the likes of Luiz or Bonucci make the passes he makes on a frequent level.

      Seems Matip will be out for up to 6 weeks with a broken collarbone after the challenge from Kouballiy

      Absolutely gutted, was hoping we would see a lot more of him in the coming weeks, he adds something different to our game when he is playing.

      Can't see Lovren playing 6-7 weeks of games straight. Fabinho could probably do a job, but other than him, who else can we call on?

      He is made of glass. So unfortunate that all these injuries arrive at the start of the heavy festive period.

      Fabinho could do a job if God forbid Lovren or VVD get hurt.

      Mr Versatile Jimmy Milner could get a run out at centre half the way things are going.

      Wouldn't put it past him to do a job either.

      Whilst he has had injury issues you can see the fall wouldn’t have injured most people - it was shocking and the player should have been punished for it

      what's he going to do? Send him off after the final whistle? UEFA should act though.
