      Maybe I do.  Maybe I am being overly harsh on the guy.  I don't know?

      I just don't get whats so good about him, certainly fitting into the way we have been playing the past couple of seasons.  Doesn't look like a matchwinner to me.  I could be wrong but I don't even think he's had an assist, and that's not because he spends his time breaking up opposition play.

      I just don't see him being part of a successful regular Liverpool XI.  Sincerely hope I'm wrong and am eating my words in 12 months time.

      Thought last night when he came on it got easier for Real Madrid's midfield. 

      Pushing Fabinho into the back didn’t help Thiago who I think is the more creative player who likes to get forward... filling fabs role hindered us...I thought taking off Milner & Kabak were the wrong calls at the wrong time, we lost all momentum ...

      So not to start Robbo for the last  7 games is not questionable ?

      What’s he done to merit a starting place? He looks knackered. Tsimikas more than able to come into the starting XI and do the job Robbo has done for the last 4 months. Probably better too as he’ll have more energy and drive.

      A rest maybe needed but you did say he shouldn't play again all season which is bollocks . Do you think there may be a reason why Tzimikas has not played maybe its because he is not as good just a thought

      Yep, I’m sure Klopp would agree. Oh well, it pays off sometimes but it wasn’t to be.

      The conclusion of this was already decided before the kick-off, Real did toy with our alleged star players, no strange to say the nutcase manager team's selection was wrong however, we saw the true metal of Salah, Gini, Firmino, who were all useless, whereas, there were much better players kept the bench warm!! Everyone can see the ongoing decay of this team and manager, there is no brighter prospect that will come from this ordeal. I sincerely hope that this weird manager got the sack very soon.

      Trent had a suburb game, really you cannot say that about the headless chicken Salah!!

      Those so-called fans who had attached Real's team bus, are not LFC fans at all. A very shamful act indeed.

      Perhaps wait until the ball goes out of play then do your laces, just a thought!

      Are you for real,you wanted Gini to wait until the ball goes out??There is no obligation from either team to wait for a player to do his laces before putting the ball back into play.

      Has it occurred to you that Klopp was the one who chose the wrong area to strengthen, for example Thiago, what was the need for him, how has he improved us??

      We desperately need new forwards because Mane and Bobby have turned to sh*t and I would love someone a LOT more clinical than Salah, Jota is good in this respect but we need at least one more. Our shot conversion rate is utterly pathetic and the number of times we shoot over the bar is becoming a f**king joke now! Can't one of the coaches do some training on this, little hint lean forwards when you shoot, not back!!!

      Another thing that drives me nuts are the number of floated crosses we have into the box, IT NEVER WORKS, so stop f**king doing it!!!!!  Compare it to City where what they do is stagger their attacking players, then have someone run to by-line and PASS the ball to the one who is free, it's not rocket science FFS!!


      As for the game yesterday we had to score first half, we had so many good chances, but I kind of think that even if we had Real Madrid would have stepped through the gears and started attacking our make shift defence, in any case with that defence I do not see how we would have won the CL unless the rest of the team were perfect and we have not been perfect in any game this season, far from it.

      Choose the wrong area?why should Jürgen HAVE to choose what area to strengthen?Our recruitment has been good up until 2019/20.No excuses for not buying a CB after Lovern went and after our first choice CB's got injured and waiting until the last day of the window to buy bargain basements.Jürgen has worked miracles with the net spend he has had.Look at the red sh*te in Manchester and then thank your lucky stars we have Jürgen.

      ??? So its better to do your laces whilst the ball is still in play rather than to wait for a goal kick, throw in, Real Madrid player throwing himself to the ground in apparent agony etc . Erm WHAT ?????

      Klopp has to choose what area to strengthen because he doesn't have infinite transfer funds no one does, not even City. If you don't understand that then its hard to have a proper conversation with you.

      I agree, Klopp has to earn his salary next season.

      I still think we’ll miss out on 4th - but hoping for a good Europa and domestic cup run for once

      At the end of the day, whatever you think of individual players, the manager, the tactics, the subs, etc etc. We done enough to win, but failed to finish gilt edged chances.
      All very disappointing, and i'm personally gutted. Just holding out for a top 4 finish, and go again next season. Hopefully with a few quality signings on board, and a couple returning from injury.

      Its history now, but Kloppo certainly need to refresh with some stellar signings for next season. We stand still in that respect, and the whole operation stands still !

      Supporters like you deserve the owners we have,their transfer policies are a joke,there was no covid at the start of the 2019/20 season or the January window and how did we strengthen?At least that gives them an excuse now.Jürgen has overachieved and where we are now is about right with the way the club is run.

      I thought a few days on I'd feel better but just seeing that graphic SSN ' Real Madrid v Chelsea' has just pissed me off even more.. We should have won that the other night, I was pissed off about that Atletico defeat last year for months. Can live with being outplayed but that Real team aren't great, well organised and professional but not not great same with Chelsea we would've done them... Rant over😠
      The only consolation is if we'd have got to the CL final and lost to City, that would be a killer.
      Got if off my chest, these next seven games are critical, we need CL football we don't need Europa. If we can claim 4th place from this horrendous sh*t show of a season it will feel like a trophy for me.
