      https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/klopp-admits-oxlade-chamberlain-mistake-013451676.html

      about starting Ox as a forward:
      "In that position and the circumstances it was obviously not as possible as we would have wished, but that's then my mistake and not his mistake because I made the decision."

      Same quote I used. So the "mistake" was using him at forward, not in starting him.

      Another game with Shaqiri being planted firmly on the bench, even after several players had 100mins+ midweek. Not looking good for him at the moment.

      There must be something going on behind the scenes, it's quite weird.

      Was thinking the same Mo comes off and Jürgen threw on Origi and switched Mane to the right. Doesn't look good for Shaq. Upset for him as we know his qualities.

      I remember last season when we played Saints at home and he scored 2 in the first half and then got hooked at half time. It's a strange one with Shaqiri, he's delivered quite a few goals and assists but he just doesn't get as much game time as his output would suggest he should IMO. Maybe he's struggling with an injury still or maybe he's just not impressing in training, either way hopefully it sorts itself out because he can be a damn good useful player to have. But to not play at all so far this season, even after the exploits of the Super Cup, something doesn't seem right.

      Maybe we might let him go if a good offer comes for him.  It seems the Italians aren't serious about Lovren.  It seems to me that we want to sell a fringe player or two in this transfer market, but for a decent amount of money. 

      For me Shakiri is a bit of a luxury player.  I think he needs to be more involved in games.

      Think if I remember correctly Monaco asked about him during the off season, pretty sure it was Monaco.

      Maybe Jürgen really wanted him to go but Shaq didn't. That's just an assumption though, because it really is weird not to get any game time so far.

      Especially when you consider how we sent Wilson out on loan for the season. Surely if we were relying on Shaqiri leaving or even trying to push him in the direction then we'd have kept Wilson to take his place as cover?

      Pretty hard to be involved in games when the manager refuses to play him, I would like to understand Jürgen's thinking with this, if he doesn't rate him at all then why keep him, same question about Lallana who can't get a game at the moment.

      When? You would have thought that when the all the midfielders are knackered and/or underperforming would be a good time.

      You wouldn’t be able to understand Klopps thinking

      But for me it’s clear - he is going with his strongest team at the moment to get them going , to get their fitness up , to get them clicking together

      We are only three games into the season - going to be plenty more for players like Shaqiri to be involved in.

      Klopp will play Shaqiri when he feels it’s the right time - he has been right so far

      My point was that if Shaq can't get a game now then I'm not sure when he will

      You are damned right I wouldn't be able to understand Klopp's thinking if as you suggest he considers it a good idea to let a good player get splinters in his arse whilst other players who are over tired or out of form struggle through games.

      Klopp - Champions league winning manager , two titles , many other finals

      Heimdall - Internet fan who reacts to everything


      Who do you think is in a better position for judge when Shaqiri plays. We have had 3 games out of a potential 50 plus for fucks sake , the season has only just got going , win 3 out of 3 and people like you question why the manager doesn’t play someone ?!!!

      Nothing changes with you

      In the end we went full strength so no reason for Shaq to feel bad. Its when we make the changes I worry for him.

      Its Klopps call, we have options but my particular point is more about Shaq and how he fits in to the team.

      No idea why you guys keep interacting with that idiot.

      You do understand that he's sitting at home, pissing himself laughing every time he gets a bite, don't you?

      As for Shaq, he'll get his chance if he's patient and works hard.
      He's had some injury problems and needs to be 100% physically and mentally before getting into this team.

      Hmm sounds like you're describing Ox rather than Shaq. Anyway I think I'll call you makrell, you are so bitey, despite supposedly ignoring me, Lol.

      BTW I'm certain that Jürgen couldn't give 2 shits what my opinion of him is, but for the record I think he is a superb manager but he does some weird things and decisions from time to time, as we all do.

      Can see Shaq leaving in Jan if he doesn't get game time. I thought he'd would've left in the summer window, but maybe he thinks he'll see some action. I hope he does, he's clearly got talent.

      Ha ha ;D! you know what I mean.  At the moment the 4th choice forward is Origi.  Personally I would like to see him play predominately in the middle.  Origi has been given the chances so far but for me he hasn't disappointed.  I would prefer Shaqiri to be played wide but for me there isn't that much in it.   He'll definitely get his chances like mentioned the season has just started and Origi finished last season very strong.

      You might be onto something here, perhaps Klopp sees Shaq more as a forward this season rather than midfield and he'll be used as a sub for Mane and Salah, I'd actually be quite ok with that but I'd still like to see him given a few minutes here and there just to keep him fresh.
