Great manager my only reservation is the size of squad, far to small in depth to challenge in all the competitions we do, run out of steam again last season many players surfing fatigue could have rested Robbo more than he did, and we never beat any of the top three in games home and away, Spurs, Chelsea and City had we beat one of them we won the League, both cups we won were on penalties, fine margins but are we going to make the same mistake with what looks like a no bigger or smaller squad than last year….. I hope not
I get your point but disagree with your conclusion.
I never once thought depth was the limiting factor during LFC's struggles to score enough goals vs top of the table teams lat season.
5 deep up front, 6 deep in the middle, 7 deep on the back line.
I often felt Klopp overvalued possession vs top teams. Too often, especially down the left side, instead of driving forward (often Robbo) with the ball during odd man breaks or with defenders on their back foot, the plan typically was 'kick the ball back out' and play the possession game, thus allowing all 10 defenders to easily set up while LFC's back line played keep away. The few times LFC pressed forward down the left side, rarely were forwards matching the ball's up field position in front of net and almost never did you see a LFC midfielder come to the top of the box for a diagonal pass from the corner. What I just described is Man City's offensive script. Clearly Klopp fears counter strikes and who can blame him given how easily opponents odd man rushes occurred in the blink of an eye. Always baffled me where the mids were. Certainly not pressing forward because that is the job of Trent and Robbo. Yet opponents often easily bypassed the mids on counterstrikes.
I'm certainly nitpicking given the team's results overall, but the "possession" game didn't amount to much vs top of the table
