      just seeing Naby on the score sheet is another yet another massive positive for me I wonder if Jürgen knows the winning lottery numbers for tonight because this man is s special as you can get

      Really........ then how come in that first half they were running through our midfield at will?

      F**k me some people cant be pleased with the attacking play and press yes there were holes but to put that solely on Lallana and Milner who were busy covering our FBs is sh*te

      Goal and an assist, not bad in his first start of the season.
      Keep that going Naby!
      Dunno what Jürgen is feeding them, but I want some...

      F**k I love it when he runs at pace at defenders. Almost looks like he's gliding when in full motion.

      Happy as anyone on his success yesterday but needs to do this
      A- Against better opposition
      B- On a more regular basis
      To be really pushing the preferred  three Midfielders

      Great to see Naby get on the scoresheet yesterday and the slide rule assist is the sort of thing he did week in week out in Germany. It's all about fitness with Naby, if he can stay fit for a few months we'll see the best to him.

      Yesterday was the perfect game for him to come back.

      Again though did Everton really run through our midfield or was that down to the tactics we used, allowing them onto us, then pinging the ball over them onto their back line which was shaky as f**k anytime Mane or Origi got near them.

      Considering it's a tactic we use regularly, I'd say yer spot on.

      I think he's got a ways to go before that can happen but he has the ability to be our best midfielder in my opinion. BUT for me he needs to:
      - Stay fit and get himself a run in the side
      - Get used to the speed of the EPL, he still seems to think he has more time on the ball than he actually does
      - Look after the ball a little bit better, he can be careless and get the side into trouble
      - Track midfield runners (compared to the rest of the middies he is bit lazy in this regard and Klopp won't stomach that so if he wants to play week in week out he'll have to work as hard as the rest)

      He has all the ability you could want though, he can see a pass, he can glide past players effortlessly, he's technically excellent and physically he is quite quick, he's mobile and he can shoot. Just needs to stay fit and i'm sure all of the above will sort itself out.

      funny how all these players are getting the Harry Kewel fitness regime around the time of a big final.
      Naby is a massive bonus coming back now along with Shaq and Lallana the squad is really looking strong.Hopefully Joel will make it on the bench for Saturday.

      I don't subscribe but the promo email for The Anfield Wrap mentioned that in their post-match discussion, they said Keita is someone whose style and play will bring results especially against our worst opposition. Wasn't sure what was meant by that.

      Did you happen to listen?

      No I didn't mate but there is perhaps some truth to him being a god one to play against weaker opposition (a flat track bully they call it in cricket). He certainly has the skills and guile to unlock a defensive side but being a bit careless with the ball and less keen to mark, track and tackle (compared to players like Hendo, Gini, Milner) does mean he poses a greater risk against top quality opposition.

      I personally think that some of these traits will sort themselves if he can keep himself fit and get a run in the side. He's never really had that. There was a spell middle of last season where he was beginning to find his feet and then he got injured. Fingers crossed he can prove his worth over the coming months.

      If Naby stays injury-free he'll be starting soon in those important games and he'll be our best midfielder. If!!!

      I think it's taken him longer to settle than perhaps we anticipated.
      Of course the injuries haven't helped, and he has missed a fair bit of the evolution of the team because of those injuries, and so now we see he is a little unsure what he should be doing in certain situations.

      So yeah, if he stays fit, and gets a run in the team, he'll show his worth.

      There's no doubt he's a fine player.

      Naby good player but we have lots of those so work hard keep his head down and we will see where he goes. We now have the best squad EVER so we need a little bit more than good we need world class to make any improvement
