      maybe big players need big games to show just how good they are. He has made a couple of bad passes but all players make mistakes and it is something he can easily sort out.
      I think we need him for his reading of the game and his tackling which really does break up play.

      His passing overall is excellent in my book. Not just a defensive passer but capable of playing killer balls

      he has had  couple of howlers that City would thrive on but I just cant see him not playing now he completely dominates the centre circle and can see a pass too. We just need Naby up to speed then we will have such a choice of midfield players to face any team

      Players make mistakes. He had a couple of pearlers but you can’t get in the water without getting wet. More impressive is how he recovered.

      Top talent beginning to shine.

      Likewise.

      Looked comfortable at CB, changed the dynamic in midfield when he came on against  City and is a pretty handy RB as well.

      For a stand in CB he did extremely well bearing in mind Murray tried to drag him into a physical duel.

      What a useful option to have but it was clear today that the sooner Fab gets back into midfield the better and especially so against the Bus Parker’s.

      The lack of forward momentum from the two CM’s today was woeful.

      same old crap about Henderson yet on LFC TV they are saying how good he was hmmm.
      Fab is doing nicely lots of games to go and I am sure he is going to have an increasing positive effect on this side

      Wasn’t really anywhere to go forward in the first half.  Not sure if you are wanting them to constantly give the ball away trying incisive passes to guys that are double and triple teamed or what?

      I wonder how Man City manage to get the ball forward when they are double or triple teamed?

      By staying patient, keeping a high tempo and trusting to their methods.

      That is how it works.

      Good on him for the "accidental flailing arm" in our box, that got him a bit of payback.

      He had plenty of time and space today, did OK in defense against a fairly poor attack, got a bit roughed up but it didn't bother him.

      A good performance in an unfamiliar position.

      Yep warming up nicely.

      Him Hendo and Gini would be my go to in the middle next couple games.

      Yep, it creates more freedom for the 3 if they all know the other ones can step into the holding position.
      As long as they stay organised and communicate, it's all good, and Henderson being the gobby f**ker that he is, I'm not worried about communication.

      No their deep midfielders have the ability to find the forward players in little pockets of space ahead of them, I have never seen them constantly pass the ball sidewards.

      I didn’t see much method from our two CM’s today, and before Swab comes in with his usual that’s what a Klopp instructs them to do. I doubt Klopps tactics are to have two CM’s do virtually nothing in a attacking respect apart from knocking it sideways, not always but when the opportunity in on at least attempt.

      Dude I’m not debating the merits of the individual players - clearly they have more quality through their squad.

      BUT

      Their (Pep’s) whole philosophy is based on staying patient and trusting the method.

      That is possibly the least controversial statement possible.

      They don’t panic. When they do - they get beat e.g. Anfield twice last year.

      Same as ours this season against bus parkers.

      Keep the ball, knock it around, make them chase us, wait for the mistake, then hit them hard.
      We did it well today, even though it wasn't pretty to watch, and but for a couple of missed sitters, the scoreline would show that we did what we wanted for most of the match.

      its hard to see how we ever get the ball up to the front three or score a single goal because we have no creation in midfield yet that Muppet Klopp keeps picking them.... :mad:

      I disagree, just because Wijnaldum and Hendo were lackluster doesn't mean there wasn't really anywhere to go forward in the first half. There is always space ahead and different options to progress forward. Better players like Kroos, Modric, Coutinho, Pjanic, Fabregas etc would have have been a lot more productive on and off the ball imo. And not even creative (DLPM/AMC) players are nessassary imo.

      Fabinho in midfield has shown how much more productive he is from deep than any of our current midfielders. I have no doubt he would have been more progressive and would have encouraged a more positive possession game. However, that doesn't necessary mean having him on will guarantee 5+ goals though, for all we know, we would have lost with Fab in the middle! But I have no doubt we would have been better on the ball than what was shown with Hendo and Wijnaldum in midfield.

      You really couldn't ask for more from this guy as of the last 4-5 weeks or so. He's been fantastic and that he moved to centre back with minimal fuss with a performance executed without fault is even more impressive. Fantastic and it's hard to believe that for a good portion of the season he was on the fringes of the squad, needing a lot of work done to get up to speed.

      Reads the game so well and has excellent technical ability.

      I just think he’s so classy on the ball!

      Another top signing by Klopp
