Is it really drama and histrionics to acknowledge that results haven't been going our way and suggest that a change to the way we've been trying to break down teams should be reviewed and tweaked? Especially when, as we are clearly struggling with personnel in certain positions who were integral to the success we have had, the players who have replaced them aren't capable of doing the same things they were, such was the high level they were performing at?
Surely thinking everything will magically fix itself whilst we are currently clearly under strength is more foolish than trying to look at a different way of breaking teams down?
I read the match thread. Drama and histrionics is exactly it.
Salah needs benching, Firmino is sh*t,, TAA has lost the plot, blah, blah, f**king blah.
Heard it all before, literally hundreds of times.
Something else I've heard so many times is "things need to change". Yeah, the very same things that saw us have one of the most successful periods in our history.
So you've gone from "teams have worked us out", which of course is utter nonsense considering we've been playing the same way since Klopp got here, to "we need to change" a successful formula that brought us a first league title in decades.
There's nothing magical about it.
Players lose a bit of form, other teams are allowed to play well, sometimes we have a bad patch as all teams do.
What you don't do is throw everything out, and start again.
The tactical and positional tweaks are there every game for those who are able to see them, as are the in game formational changes.
We lost our 2 starting defenders, and then our 3rd choice.
F**k all anyone can do about that, and given our style of play, I doubt a new CB is going to slot in seamlessly and make everything better.
Like I said; it's football, sh*t happens.
You can either get over it and move on, or not.
I've already moved on.
