      Head down n' Go.

      Will Klopp tweak the system? Maybe Bobby will end up up-front on his own with 3 attacking midfielders behind him?

      Wouldn’t mind seeing that myself. Danny would suit perfectly with Bobby as a false 9

      At this rate it’ll be Markovic Solanke and Moreno as our front 3.

      Not as bad as whatever Woy fielded mind you.

      Jovanovic, Cole and N’Gog was it?

      The way most of the matches have gone, it hasn't been a case of the forward line rushing forward to catch the opposition in transition - the way we saw so many times last season. Most of our games this season have been much more cagey, opponents defending in numbers and us controlling possession but needing to unlock the defence with something pretty special, typically an exceptional finish. That's Sturridge all day.
      Agree with most of that, but just feel Shaqiri has more to offer, especially with free kicks around the box, plus like DS he has those wonder goals in him too

      Shaqiri, Sturridge and Firmino should easily be enough to see off Huddersfield.
      Although they are not winning at the moment Huddersfield a playing quite well, and if anybody knows how to play against a Klopp side it's his mate David Wagner, this will be a tricky game

      and Cardiff and Red Star, injuries always suck but we couldn't have picked a better time, plus a rest might do Sadio and Mo good, let them reset and come back full of beans.
      Hate to be in the dressing room with those two after all those beans  :holyshit:

      The only reason why the front three are "struggling" is because teams are sitting much deeper, parking the bus and putting 2/3 players on Salah every time he gets the ball. Yet we're joint top of the league so we must be doing something right..

      Salah will come good, he's too good a player not to be able to adapt.

      are you being serious, Huddersfield playing well??? They are utter garbage and if we don't win by a 3 or 4 goal margin I'll be extremely fecking annoyed with or without Mane and Salah.

      To be honest, this is our "best" chance to get that GD back up. F***ing kills me that we're behind Chelsea on GD

      they're on 3 points from 8 games with a GD of -16. My opinion is anything less than 3 points is a catastrophe, regardless of Huddersfield boss being Klopps pal.

      And if anyone knows how to play against a David Wagner side it's Klopp.

      Sticking 6 past them last season and not conceding any suggests this too.

      Expect something similar this year.

      I can see Sturridge getting a goal or two. I'd bet on it, but I've always believed in betting on your team is always bad luck.

      I agree, but I just feel with two of the front three not really firing at present that this will be more trickier that you think

      No doubt the forward line have been poor so far but the lack of creativity from midfield was laid glaring today.

      So much so that Shaqiri had to drop into midfield to try and create something.  Hendo, Milner and Gini when was the last time we got a goal from those 3 in open play?

       Hopefully we can keep going until  the January window.

      Is anyone else worried that we seem to be overplaying the front three?
      Bobby looks shattered and lethargic compared to prior years.
      Sadio's playing with a broken thumb and needs to put his feet up.
      Mo needs the hours on the pitch to regain top form.

      I think the overplaying of it is due to the lack of confidence a fear of missing, so instead of taking the half chances they are trying to almost create unmissable chances if that makes sense

      The switch in positions up front is not getting the best from the players involved.
      Bobby is now playing more of a CM, because I imagine Klopp doesn’t trust Shaq in midfield and in turn Salah is playing the striker role.

      Seems to me at least that this positional switch is not suiting Bobby as he is too peripheral to effect play.

      Salah is constantly getting the ball withhis back to goal and usually with a couple of defenders on him, he is much more deadly coming in off the wing.

      Hopefully the switch is temporary or at least until Keita is fully up to speed.
      We were too open through midfield with Bobby dropping deep into CM.

      I think our 4231 formation is tailor made for a more natural 9, someone that can hold the ball up and bring others into play, someone like a Solanke could work or even playing Firmino higher up imo.
