      Stop, read and understand it will hold you in good stead in life!

      Klopp wanted Fekir an attacking midfielder, he will get somebody similar in the summer to unlock packed defences.

      Not too difficult is it?
         

      Maybe but he ain't playing against Watford tomorrow,so.

      Form is a big concern, just look a bit flat at the moment

      I thought our tempo was great against Bayern, and against the mancs until they started dropping like flies.

      It'll click again.
      It's just the way of these things in my experience.

      Think they will have a go with form they are in which may actually suit us but with a few bumps in the road think we will have too much

      Whatever the reason 2 games without scoring and 3 halves of football without looking like scoring will start to play on players minds unless we get back to scoring ways sooner than later tomorrow.

      Bobby should be back for the derby against Everton.

      Let's hope Salah and Mane are switched on.

      Hope he starts Keita

      So you reckon scoring is the key FOAR?

      Yeah, not a bad call. Mane probably was a bit more effective on the right (although overall he's been pretty effective on the left as well).

      Another option would be Salah on the left, Mane right and Origi up front. Watford will be set up to defend narrow, so it would be interesting to see our wingers wanting to go outside of opposition FBs more than inside.

      Switching those 2 wide men around is something we could do more in general, in games where we are struggling to break teams down. It's not gonna be our first choice option with Bobby up front, cos he wants to play more in front of the defence rather than attacking crosses, but as something to try to shake things up when we are struggling it still could be worth it even then. With Origi up front, though, it could actually be an option from the start of games.

      Exactly. Our attacking  tactics are too predictable at the moment and opposition teams can read us like a book. Too rigid no good, we need to switch the front 3 around and mix things up a bit and opposition defenders will struggle to cope.  We need a plan A, B, C and D ... not stick to plan A game after game. We have quality players to do that. And an occassional burst from midfield ala Gini won't harm. He has done that for us and Holland before. In the last few gams we don't have enough players inside the box and the probability of scoring will reduce.

      I'd take the three points with a scrappy goal but I think we'd all be much happier if it came with us creating plenty of opportunities, and taking them.

      Let's face it after 27 games us and City are effectively neck and neck.  It's very difficult to think that from here Spurs are going to collect 20% more points than both of the top two.

      Players need to approach this period now as if we are starting an 11 match season which shouldn't be that difficult because with the two training camps recently it's been a little bit like pre-season!

      I think that’s a better way to look at it than 11 cup finals JD.

      Few can peak 11 times in a row emotionally as much as physically so what we need is a collective who will scrap for everything with every ounce of ability they have on a given day.

      That’ll get the job done more than rallying calls and “one-off” responses......11 times.

      And as much as I'd like to hope for some divine Rafa intervention, sadly his current team will not be able to help us out.

      Talks of Origi starting. Not sure how effective will that be. May be Jürgen's idea to counter their 4-2-2-2.

      Origi Mo
      Mane Shaq
      Keita Fab
      Back-5

      Subs: Migs, Moreno, Milner, Hendo, Gini, Lallana, Sturridge/Bobby

      They'll most likely be

      Deulofeu Deeney
      Pereyra Hughes

      Theyve been way off their best for me but they have no fear to push them. They know they just get picked anyway. Id love them bothbto be dropped and told its for form. Then about 55 mins into the game throw both on and see a reaction...telling you it would be visible and that would bendfit all of us

      They haven't, just so happens Bayern and United played extremely defensively, man-marked Salah out of the game and our lack of creativity in midfield have been exposed. We're brilliant against footballing teams who open up like Arsenal and Bournemouth,  but we have no answer to very defensive set ups. Given their goal scoring records this season, having a couple of quiet games hardly counts for lack of form.

      I can see what you're trying to say, but Origi and Lallana have hardly offered anything to make a start worthwhile for a long time.

      Bit of perspective mate.
