      I was one of  a few call for his edition in the starting 11 earlier this season... For me he is not the greatest midfield player, but has in him the quality to pick out pin point passes or a regular basis, and some quality free kicks and goals, a very important player to have for breaking down though defensive's, though not perfect for every game if used right and he is up to it, he can be a world beater as he is the nearest thing to Coutinho we have, Passing and free kick wise

      A lot of fairly obvious stuff in there, but he makes no mention of the niggles Shaqiri has had, which, for me, are probably a bigger factor.
      Still a decent enough opinion piece though.

      plenty of time to make a big impression on the season. He is definitely technically gifted but he hasn't had someone like Jürgen managing him. If he can take on board how Jürgen wants him to play he can command a first team place. We have a very strong squad now its not easy to get a place in the starting X1 these days let alone keep it. Still fancy him as a big game player and lets face it we have a number of big games coming up

      Last time we played Soton, he had a ripping game, let's hope he gets some minutes this time, once we are 4-0 up.  ;D

      Came off at half time didn't he? I remember him bossing it when he was on the pitch though.

      Klopp seems to have predominantly used a 4-3-3 this year, (2019)
      which probably explains some of the omission.

      Even when the formation has changed the change has been on the left,
      with Mane, not Salah, moving. This brings Origi in on the left, rather than
      Shaqiri on the right.

      Small margins and all that.

      Can't remember that bit mate but yes whilst he was on, he was playing a beauty of a game.

      I really would love to know why Klopp does not like playing him, I assume there must be a good reason because almost every time I see him play he plays with lots of energy, clever passes and a wicked shot, plus he's happy to track back and do pressing as well, what is not to like.
      I would have started him against Barca, I think he would have been a much better option than Gini, but Klopp has a real soft spot for Gini and Milner.

      Very important assist. Van Dijk pointed at him to take it from Trent (one of the best crossers) :)

      Hope Jürgen doesn't decide to get rid of him.

      He's also got that guile and trickery we need in the Team. He sees passes no one else does, that's why I can't understand why he hasn't been used more then he has. Maybe because we keep winning, he's not needed.

      And he is not too bad with the free kicks either.

      Not really that keen on Shaqiri as a player, but I was calling for him very early in the season because I know how good he is at picking out pin point passes, and can put a cross on a dime. A takes a terrific free kick just does not really track back and can get knocked off the ball a bit to easy...

      Having said that I would sooner have him on the pitch than Origi,Sturrigde or Lallana

      It seems after January where he had a 3 or 4 starts where he never really impressed to push for a starting role he really been stapled to the bench for the last three months. Disappointing to see as he provided decent impact in the first half of the season when called upon but there must be something to it as Klopp more keen on playing other option up top though Klopp been leaning on our big three for majority of the games. This off season interesting to see if he wants to stick around as part time player or go to club he will be playing more first team football.

      Think he'll want to stick around and get his back to back Premier League and Champions League medals!

      His problem chaps - in my opinion - is that he lacks the pace to play in our front 3 and, as yet, hasn’t learned how to fill the gaps defensively to play in midfield.

      Hence the cameos or a few starts at home against lower end opposition.

      He’s young enough and fit enough to learn but I think that’s been the challenge integrating him this season.

      He has been affected by his injury . I just think he is the type of player that can suddenly become World class for a few minutes and change a game. Lets see if he get a chance in the Final but he is capable of doing far more than he does at present . He has actually improved his defensive work out of all recognition .

      Unless there is a 60m+ bid, I wouldn't like to see us sell him. Only 27, in his peak years and still has so much to offer.
