      Ummm no that really isn’t what it’s for and not what it’s meant to be used for. Hence why it’s so annoying because you’re using it completely wrong.

      But thanks for the attempted grammar lesson, maybe try understand something next time before posting (which would leave you with a very low post count admittedly).
      I learnt to use it that way... But I did Google it to be sure (What does "..." in a sentence mean), and printed the answer for you... Started to mention it then though you may claim that i was insulting your intelligence so deleted that bit...Seem's that I needn't of worried about that  :roll:

      Shabs... The point I was making was that these players, well Keita at least was bought in with a view to play high press football so why would the pace of the game be an issue. Why would they need to get up to pace...?

      So despite the fact Klopp has said we're not playing the same "high press" football, Keita was brought in to play the "high press" football we no longer play.

      OK.

      Ermmm..Not pace of the game but tactics..we are more defence minded as to full out attack..

      Yep, googled it to confirm my understanding is exactly as I’ve known it to be since university and just be 100% clear that your interpretation wasn’t something I was missing.

      The fact you would go and access another forum users search history makes you an absolute creep though.

      Don't bite mate, it's what they want.
      There's a little gang of them who all plus each other. Apparently, some came from another forum.
      Little wonder they got fu**ed off from it.

      Then if it is merely down to tactics they should be ready to play now,. unless they are slower to pick up the instructions...

      Maybe come January when we are still right in the mix Klopp will have several players fresh and ready to take over the fight giving other s good rest . Hopefully Ox will be available at some point in the new year and we will then have 7 or 8  for Jürgen to pick from

      I don't know nor understand the reasons Klopp is not playing certain players, I just know the reason that some on this forum are giving for their lack of use just doesn't add up...

      I hope what you say is right

      Yes totally agree... It's sink or swim time for Fab' and Keita
      Both Keita and Fab' swam like salmon swimming up stream against Utd this evening... But I guess it was from what they learnt from the training field as some here would have you believe.... :f_whistle:

      Yes they did well against a midfield that had zero creativity and just was there to try and spoil and protect the back four - it was a good game , Fabinho played well but thought at times Keita was a bit wasteful

      Whatever comes or goes Klopp is going to have difficulty leaving Fabinho on the bench. He showed today what a clever player he really is. His passing today was close to having a 6th sense. Even before he was getting the ball he was aware of the front 3's position.

      He read Mane's movement for the first, he played in others as if he had been here for years. Positive in all he did, just blended and played the right pass from the off. And this wasn't some easy home banker this was against our greatest rivals. My MOTM, yes Shaq did a brilliant cameo, and in one sense Shaq might've played himself on to the bench.

      Keita did very well also, driving runs, fitted in, power, little bit of pace from a standing start. Was telling also that Gini was selected.
      To be honest I was up for Hendo and Shaq with Gini but Fabinho in particular proved me wrong. Not that I think he's not a fit for us.

      So was both Firmino and Mane, wasteful that is. the fact that thier midfield lacked creativity was not the fault of Keita nor Fab' In fact I would have thought that it was harder to play against midfielders who sat back and protected the back four, find your way pst them and laying on balls for your front men

      The midfield three, as many expected, doesn't have a nailed on trio. We've got options there with each of them bringing something a bit different to the game.

      And it's testament to Klopp's ability as a manager that he invariably finds the right combination for any given game.

      Admittedly I was surprised he went for the English pairing of Henderson and Milner against Napoli and the foreign pairing of Fabinho and Keita for the United game. I would of expected it to be the other way round, with Hendo and Milly understanding and knowing what the United game meant a bit more than two lads who've only been at the club for six months. And would of expected Fabinho and Keita to be more at home in a European game than a Premier League one. But we dominated both games so it's safe to say Klopp got it right - again.

      And what is also apparent is that we're able to change our formation quite easily now, which is again something a lot of people on here thought would be the case. Given the options we've got, we can alter the structure of the three in the middle a lot more than we've been able to do over recent years.

      I think a remix of "We've Got The Best Midfield In The World" is on the cards!

      "We've got the best midfield in the world.
      We've got Hendo and Milly
      Keita and Gini
      Fabulous Fab
      Shaqiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iii"

      The same midfield trio that started vs Bournemouth home and away and totalling a 10-1 scoreline.
