      With a full time, Klopp is still the best around but we need to back him in the transfer market.

      We need a win against the Wolves to shut the media.

      That game is huge now, win it and we get a nice break to get players back from injury work on things in training etc, plus it will allow the lads to clear their heads whilst away with their national teams.

      Then come back win the remaining 9 games to clinch 4th place on the last day of the season then its back to Istanbul for #7 ;-)

      Starting Keita, Waiting till after 75th minute to make 2nd/3rd change. Leaving Mane on the pitch [or the shadow that looked like Mane].
      Don't think Jürgen will sleep well tonight.

      Hope so, though the season has pretty much knocked three shades of sh*t out of me at this stage, whatever about the players and Jürgen.

      Much bigger impact was not starting Firmino in favor of Mane, who at this point should not be starting.

      Have we really reached end of the cycle with the current team? Or two-three new additions will help the team next season? . I feel our mid field need some fresh faces if we Gini and Keita are leaving.

      Does he know how to? Major mistake setting the same formation away to an inform Madrid. Leaving Thiago out was unbelievable?

      Can understand the idea behind it. Keita to press Kroos and run at their slow mid field. But he let Klopp down, didn't press intelligently , didn't cover for TAA, was always hiding and not showing for the pass.

      Not sure what the answer is but it’s been going on since Watford last season, a simple ball over the top to our right hand side esp when TAA has gone forward causes us all sorts of problems. That’s even with VVD and Gomez.

      One thing for sure the management have not been able to fix this issue so far which is more about tactics than players.

      Been reading alot of posts on how we should have played AFTER the game.
      I honestly see why JK played keita instead of Thiago, we would never have more of the ball playing against real. They are too good, so he went for Keita who has more pace and can dribble. Our plan was to counter attack.

      He picked our best cbs available for the game, Nat and trent made a mistake. Real was just too good for us last night and it happens.

      He is the right man for the job, have faith ffs.

      There is an incalculable vacuum created with the injury to VVD,  how is that to be addressed with bargain basement players?

      Can’t argue with that but remember the Villa game as well as many others where VVD was playing and where the long diagonal ball over the the top has been deployed.

      It’s a issue for us, Zidane picked it out perfectly.

      A good many of our opponents seem to have identified that chink in our set-up.

      Cut out the long ball before it’s allowed to happen. If Bobby’s on the park he’s all over Kroos last night.

      Trents always been suspect with anything coming over his shoulder doesn’t matter who he’s cb is.

      I think it was a naive decision to be honest. When you've got centre backs who are novices at this level and a right back who can't defend at the moment I think being solid in midfield is more important than thinking the other way. Kroos and Modric were going to have a lot of the ball so we should have focused on protecting our defenders rather than thinking we'd just outmanoeuvre them the other way. We'd been absolutely fine in recent weeks in terms of getting the ball to the front three to counter anyway, it's just been a case of misplaced passes and missed chances from our attackers.

      Thiago was integral to our recent wins against Arsenal and Leipzig, midfield wasn't an area to mess with ahead of the game last night and the fact Jürgen didn't even wait that extra 5 minutes to sub Keita at half time shows that he knows he got it badly wrong last night.

      Yeah whatever way you slice it Klopp fu**ed up there, another f**k up to the multiple ones he's already had this season, starting with not replacing Lovren, then playing midfielders at CB, then playing Bobby and Mane despite both being totally out of form, playing Robertson despite him being in bang average from when he has a very interesting option sat on the bench who just needs minutes.

      Yea, i think they beat Real that year they lost the final to Bayern, but he may not have beat them in Spain.

      From our time with us, we lost the away leg at Atletico and Barcelona. When we played Sevilla in the EL it was in the final only so no away leg.

      I’m sure there’ll be some of us who have had enough of JK. 9 losses in the league, out of both domestic cups and not looking good for number 7. Bring on those comments. I’m looking forward to reading them! I’m sure these people wouldn’t have committed to those decisions JK has made - in hindsight. And do volunteer to be LFC manager when JK vacates.
