      Yes injuries cost him and the team developed beyond him in his absence but we shouldn't forget just how important he was early on in the Klopp era - a crucial member of the side that moved from mid table to Champions League qualification.

      Good to see him extending his contract to cover this season because he deserves to be here and share the success.

      Lallana a crucial member of the side, when was this then? I can't remember him ever playing more than 3 games in a row

      He scored a few important goals. never really consistent. Apparently would encourage the younger lads which looked up to him.

      The gist of my comment.

      I point out that generally speaking both comments are similar, inconsistency is a common factor with both comments.

      Early on in the Klopp era, I just said it in my post.

      If you want to rewrite history and say he was injured his whole time for us then fair enough (he played 125 games across his first three seasons by the way) but the reality was for the first 18 months of Klopp's time here Lallana was as good as anyone in the squad.

      How many goals and assists did he do in those 18 uninterrupted injury free months? I'm not trying to be contrary here, I honestly don't recall him playing much or doing anything of note, he was ok but nothing special, "as good as anyone in the squad", come on that's ridiculous and you know it

      I think early on he was, A Klopp type player, could run and press with menace. Maybe the hi press game resulted in his body not being fit for purpose, however his commitment to the club was never a issue.

      Ah so it was only after Klopp arrives that he fell apart, hmm not sure about that. Anyway we'll have to agree to disagree, I know a lot of people rate Lallana very highly, I don't share that view, never have, never will, he's seems like a good pro though, well apart from when he's fighting with junior players.

      He had a very good spell in Klopp's first full season with us but very little impact since due to injuries. He's an intelligent player but too slow and fragile to cope with the intensity we play with now. He will do well at a lower level club if he stays fit.

      Think we'll have to agree to disagree but there were plenty saying he was a contender for player of the season in 16/17.

      Injuries have finished him in terms of being at a top club and it's the right time to move him on but I just don't see the point in rewriting history just to have a pop at a player.

      He was the best presser in the team.
      Gave his all every game.
      A nightmare in the box with his close control and trickery.
      A good passer.
      He didn't tackle a lot because he used a much more effective method of ushering his opponents into "safe" areas.
      He never gave opponents a minutes peace, always at them, snapping away at their heels.

      Anyone who says he wasn't good during those first couple of seasons under Klopp is talking out their hole.

      The only thing that stopped him was injuries.
      A couple of times when he was away with England.

      Lallana should leave ASAP. He reached his peak some some months then got injured, other than that, he was a flop for me, because he was unreliable.  Not good enough for the team now, given the squad we have. 




      Your comments just enlighten your lack of expertise, Lallana although not world class has done his bit when asked, he himself would acknowledge he is no more than a squad player but he doesn’t whinge or moan, instead, he has been the ultimate professional by helping & advising the young lads at the club, a lot of players in a similar situation would happily take their wages and offer f**k all,

      I’m glad he has extended his contract, his experience is invaluable, he may not kick another ball in anger for LFC again but he remains a very good squad player who will give all he has if asked, and no one can ask for more.

      How many assists and goals did he have, genuine question, I remember a player who pressed very well, I'll give him that, but who had very little end product besides a lovely Cruyff turn.

      He scored this last minute winner against Norwich. I was so happy and celebrated like mad. He became my idol.

      But I was ready to smash him to bits when he didn’t deliver goals and assists. I don’t care what Klopp thinks since I think my opinion is the best. Fans are bigger than managers. In fact we pay the club which pays them. I still consider meself a world class fan who demands world class results with zero tolerance. :f_whistle:

      I'll never forget him, the scorer of a last minute goal in one of the 3 best games I have ever seen.

      His pressing was sic. His goal against swansea where he pressed Fabanski into hitting him with the cross was wild. YNWA Adam

      I was so happy when we signed him. Always rated him and loved watching someone that's technically sound and always willing to fight. Sad that he had so many injury stop-starts.

      I'll never forget him jumping into Jürgen's arms, that's enough for me.
