      we look poor

      Ox has been MIA, not sure where Hendo and Milly are playing and our defence looks uncomfortable

      I'm watching this in Spain it's spoiling my holiday, pedestrian midfield,are Mane and Ox deffo playing because I haven't seen them. Started reasonably but  as it went on that goal was coming, get Bobby on..

      That’s the best they have up our game in the second half and we can turn this around but I do agree we need some subs on especially Bobby upfront mane back wide and ox in the middle instead of Milner or hendo.

      What is Klopp actually thinking by playing Ox in a front 3 instead of Shaqiri? If Klopp doesn't want to play Shaqiri as backup for a wide player then why did he not sign someone?!

      Milner has been horrific.

      In pre-season when I was saying about how bad we were looking the more it went on and how it doesn't bode well going into the season people were jumping in and saying it's irrelevant and means nothing. Well, right now, the first half vs City and large parts vs Norwich has been exactly like our pre-season performances. Passing is sloppy as hell, midfield getting run all over the place and the defence letting their man go time and again.

      Need to wake up because they aren't even playing that well themselves, we are just making it easy for them.

      Think Matip has actually been decent though. Could have done better on the goal but not a lot else is getting past him.

      To be fair, mate, there's a lot of quality  defenders in world football who could look sh*te with a midfield playing as bad as that in front of them.

      Not going to disagree there but it looks a little like the last half hour of Norwich in the back. Too many fundamental errors with positioning and marking for me too easy to shift it all on the midfield.

      We're desperately missing TAA (in place of Gomez), Gini (in place of Milner), and Bobby (in place of Ox).  It's crazy how bad we look with only 3 changes to our "best 11" -- probably why so many people were shouting for us to add quality depth to the side over the summer....

      We can do this. Kante is looking immense. Just need to shut him down.
      Try to fix our midfield and take control of the game.

      Must say Gomez just has that look about him that says even he knows this is all wrong where he is playing . Milner looks like he’s struggling , where is he do playing ? All over the place in the first half . Hope we can do better in the second half because that was bad .. very bad

      Don't see anything changing if we persist with that midfield. Front three just won't get on the ball.

      I love your optimism, but first Jürgen needs to rectify the mistakes in the starting lineup. We can still win this, but things have got to change!

      Thats not enough, Hendo will still be isolated out wide, and our midfield over run, unless Klopp has changed the tactics as well.

      No surprise to see Ox off for Firmino. Worrying if that’s a go to formation this season.

      Milner-Henderson could also be hooked.


      Oh Firmino makes an instant impact.
