      Didi Hamann talks absolute sh*te most of the time.

      Serious. To even align yourself with his weird statements is puzzling.

      Happens all the time mate.

      Some people think just because an ex pro says something it makes it accurate or somehow validates their own opinion.

      I remember Corbally on here used Iain Dowie as his example to back up one of his outlandish claims one time.

      Not knowing much him before he came and listening to everyone else, I was under the impression he's gonna be a lad that can put it on a dime and unlock these low block teams with a killer pass. Just haven't seen it from him enough, seen glimpses but not what I was expecting.

      Not sure people are on same wavelength at times so what might look a misplaced pass at times his really him being a second or so ahead of everyone

      You'd think they would be on the same wavelength after a month of training with him, since he's come back!

      Hope they get up to speed f**king soon!

      You can see Thiago getting more and more pissed off with the lack of movement in front of him, he often has absolutely no options of who to pass to, our forward play is horrendously static and slow at the moment.

      That will all change when Mane and Jota are back.

      We need to drop Bobby against all teams that play in low blocks i.e. all the sh*t teams we can't beat this season.

      I disagree, I think Salah is the one who is almost completely ineffective against Low Block, mainly due to be completely one-footed, he is very easy to defend against, extremely predictable. Bobby at least has a few tricks and is of course great at interplay, if only the midfielders would have a go.  I totally agree that Mane and Jota would make a big difference but we also need more attacking midfielders, Milner and Gini is the very worst combination if you need creativity.

      100%. Salah without space is dependent on pulling those 1 in 1,000 dilly dallies in the box that usually end up with the ball being poked away and then having to rush against the counter.

      He played a lovely ball in the first half took out the entire Brighton back line, ball to the backpost, no Liverpool player was on the same wavelenght, reacted secinds too slow, ball wnt wide.

      Kind if ball Alonso orvGerrard would play but a Torres ir Suarez would likely have been onto, thsts not to slight Mo or Bobby. They arent on the same wavelenght as Thiago because we so rarely play that type of ball.

      It will click the more they play together.

      Played a lovely free kick in the 2nd half then that nearly came off.

      Even though its February he's still kind of settling into this side and finding his feet.

      A quality footballer who will shine here given time.

      Something that has massively been forgotten since he was taken out by the blueshite arsehole.

      I just wonder how practical Thiago is to this team. He's an amazing talent, no doubt. But, I dunno if he fits what we do. At Bayern, their movement in and out the box was off the charts, and that suits his passing abilities and creativity. Here, we thrive on winning the ball back and hitting teams on the counter. Thiago is a maestro, but I dunno if Heavy Metal football fits his game.

      If there is someone who can figure it out, its Klopp. Thiago still needs time to get settled to English football and our squad. I hope it works cause he's amazing

      When was the last time we actually played Heavy metal football. That phrase should of been discarded when VVD signed. Very much changed our style to a more patient style when Big Virg rocked up.

      Lack of urgency or no fans to put a rocket up their arses is how I'm looking at it.

      No worries about his class but today was probably his worst performance for us.

      Big fan of him and hope he settles quickly as I think he can be vital for us.

      Yea he needs to cut that sh*t out. I'll give him a pass since he's still getting up to speed with the intensity of the PL but I don't want him becoming a card merchant with those silly tackles.

      For sure. Dumb ass tackles too. However, I think he steps it up a notch in a MF of Hendo and Fab. Wanna see that before I judge him
