      Is Thiago the new Seba Veron - all class and no impact

      Really?

      Veronin, Jovanovic...

      We've had some right stinkers here.

      Lambert, Balotelli, Carrol, Borini, Voronin, Solanke, Aspas to name but a few off the top of my head. A good chunk of those had a more favourable run in the team than Divock has had of late too.


      Funnily enough Aspas has been one of the best strikers in La Liga consistently since he left the club.

      Yeah he's been superb. Was promising before he joined too, just didn't work out for him when he was here. Think the physicality of the league didn't do him any favours. Always looked as though he could have done with a steak & a protein shake when he was on the pitch for us. Suppose getting a decent run in the team helps as well, which he was never given

      Luis Alberto, though not a striker, likewise, went on to very good things.

      Still can't believe he turned Real Madrid down a year before he joined us, he looked completely out of his depth playing in Hodgson's team. Imagine him at the Bernabeu

      Awful shout this lad. His 1 on 1 miss aside, Origi didn’t even have a bad game last night either. He was involved and got a couple of shots off. You’ve got a very short memory if you think origi is the worst striker we’ve had though - it shows how spoilt we’ve been in the last couple of seasons if you think origi is that bad.


      This.

      Origi was direct last night and at least posed some threat. Didn't score, missed a big chance, but what are we comparing him to? We haven't scored for 4 games! Not like the other strikers are lethal in front of goal. Mistake Klopp made last night was taking Origi off! Firmino did less again. Nonsense to sub Origi off for Firmino.

      I think we need to have Thiago much further forward closer to the front 3 and start making those dribbling runs into the penalty box.
      No idea what he is doing almost as the third CB.

      The fullbacks need to stop constantly crossing to our midget front line, Robbo does it not so much lately but when was the last time Trent made a overlapping run.

      When was the last time any of our midfielders made a quick 1-2 with the forwards to break the line.

      Similarly the forward seem to have stopped running at players, not really seen Mane take on a player worst case scenario he gains a penno.
      Salah is so one footed it’s now become to easy for defenders to see what he is going to do.

      I’m sure Klopp and his team team are working on what we need to do sort out our bluntness!


      I agree on Thiago, not sure why he's been tasked to play so deep. I will say I think out short passing game is tougher when the opponent stacks the box and it seems like someone's idea (either the boys or Klopp) is to just cross balls in and pray. Think we'd have been better off to just start shooting from outside the box and crashing the goal.

      Origi offers nothing. Should have never been on the pitch. Minamino should have started ahead of him if it wasn't going to be Firmino.

      There's a reason we've been desperately trying to sell Origi. That horrific miss last night didn't help us in that regard either.

      Was he f**k, he was f**king sh*te as per. That miss I put on a par with Heskey's miss in the FA cup against Palace when he ran from the halfway line and virtually passed it back to the keeper.

      Div wants volleying for that miss, that goes in and it's a different game. Origi's time at the club is done, we just need rid now.

      Actually his last kick of the ball for the club wasn't it. Can't remember him playing after that. Unfair on him as rarely given a chance with Sturridge and Suarez ahead of him. Went back to Spain and became a top striker.

      We have some very technically gifted footballers who if they drove forward with the ball at their feet would earn themselves free kicks and pens against the likes of Burnley players.

      But all we did was punt crosses at their keeper or into the stands or behind all our players.

      Absolutely no nous on display.  If you're going through a bad spell at least try and give yourselves a chance by buying some set pieces.  Both Man City and now Man United know exactly how to do that.

      I remember Sadio Mane driving into the area just once in that game and I remember it because it happened so infrequently last night.  Players five yards outside the box who instead of driving forward wanted to try and pass it around about 9 Burnley defenders.  Ludicrous.

      The thing with short corners though is that somebody has to actually come short to receive it. I don't remember anybody being within 30-40 yards of him when he took that corner 😂

      Our players dont have the urgency to get out of his mess because they think or assumevit will just happen, that someone else on the pitch will step up and save it??

      I think a lot of us fans are the same, or certainly were up until last night that it was only a matter of time before we started playing better. I still have faith in the team and jurgen

      I think we will play better eventually as we have enough top class footballers but another theory is that we've been so focused and relentless for three years or so now that added into the effects of the current situation means that everything has just caught up with this current squad of players.
