      He's been a cracking signing and we really have a player who makes a difference when coming off the bench.

      i just keep thinking to myself if Ox hadn't gotten hurt how much more flexibility the manager would have to choose from; the gaffer has done a helluva job building this squad.

      F***ing love this lad me, so positive in his play and he seems to time his runs to perfection.

      Been a steal at the price we paid for him hasn't he.

      Boss signing,
      Boss attitude,
      Boss performances.

      Bargain of the season (although every player we get seems a bargain at the moment!) and is again a testament to Klopp, Edwards and everyone else involved in the transfers. Lots of teams would’ve swerved him because of his so called attitude.

      Isn’t it strange - his attitude seems to be one of his biggest strengths so far too

      Pundits & ex players  questioned his attitude & as always the way should be to do your talking on the pitch & he has, produced the goods & silenced the critics..

      He is equal with Vardy goals/assists and above Lukaku what a steal.

      Was unlucky not to have a couple of assists within five minutes after half time. What a pass that was to Mo.

      Exactly, his passing and shooting ablity are excellent. What he lacks is the first touch but then uses his body well.

      I always thought he'd be a very good player for us, but he's almost better than even I expected and for £12m, wow!!

      He is still learning the midfield role.

      We lack balance when he plays.......and he tends to overplay.

      Important goals this season and s role to play. I’m just not a huge fan of him in that AM free role.

      He's also improved his defending and tracking, and I think we'll see further improvements in those area's.

      I completely underestimated his slowness. He's just not fast enough. If he was he'd be world class. I envisioned him to become our Messi-kind-of-leader in the midfield, but he doesn't like to take the ball and command the midfield, maybe also Klopp doesn't allow it. He seems purely a striker. Would be interesting to look deeper if there's more in him than Klopp wants or forces. Still a good signing though. One silent game doesn't change anything.

      Without doubt. Almost looks to have gotten a bit complacent since the Wolves game. He’s starting virtually every game at the moment but he’s playing like he knows he will be the following match too, regardless of how he plays.
      Needs to get back on the bench and be an impact player again, was looking so much better like that and it was killing off other teams.
      Would have felt a lot better seeing him come off the bench than Lallana!!

      Would give him a start tonight, think he needs to find his rhythm again, once he does I have no doubt he will be a key player in the last stretch of the season.

      Having him back in the team could also be a big boost for Mo as he seems to be able to find him in dangerous spaces.

      I totally agree. We need his spice. He has that flair in him that at the moment, we're missing.

      If Klopp wants to be adventurous and get us scoring again he has to start Shaq.

      Otherwise I fear our football will remain stagnant and we'll ultimately hand City the title.

      I'd start rotating him in for Mane or Salah, you can normally see straight away if those 2 will have a good game or not and Klopp needs to be a bit more proactive and brave with subbing one of them off. Sturridge will never again be the answer and Origi just doesn't seem to have IT, but Shaq has a similar kind of energy and skill as them and can do a good job for us.
      Another option is to start with Shaq and then have the option of bringing Mane or Salah on, what a sub that would be!

      If we start with Shaq and only one for Salah/Mane who else do we play up top in the 3?

      looks like Origi gets the nod. Not sure why Shaq hasn't had more chances I thought he was doing ok

      Maybe Origi is showing more in training, it is a weird one because whenever Shaq has come on he has looked good and on the rare occaision where he isn't making an impact he definitely puts the effort in.

      Maybe Klopp thinks we need more of a change out on the left side and isn't willing to put Shaq out there.

      What's happened to this guy to make both Origi and Lallana ahead of him in the pecking order? No offence to Adam but what has he actually done this season?
