      We're in for sh*t street when Afcon kicks in, you lot can put it however you want if it helps you get to bed.

      Salah, Mane and Keita is too big of a loss to our starting 11. Fair enough Keita isn't a starter, and spends most of his time on the doctors bed, but Salah and Mane is HUGE!

      Imo this is where we lose pace. I hope we don't but there's no easy games in this league and our midfielders don't score so the onus will be on Jota, Bobby, Origi, Taki and Ox.

      Jota is a given. Bobby isn't a goal scorer. Origi is very hit and miss, didn't start yesterday and Klopp decided to play an out of position Ox. Taki is a bit part player for our team and Ox is definitely not a forward.

      I'm dreading it but YNWA so we back whatever team Klopp puts out.

      Well there were a lot of members who slated me for stating we're fu**ed come AFCON. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. I said our front three will struggle for goals. You lot came for me. Well here it is. This is the result of years of sh*t investment. I have nothing more to say about it. Can't be asked to keep repeating myself.

      Really???

      3 wins out of 4 matches against PL opponents during Mo and Saido's absence.
      5 wins out of 6 matches during their absence.
      5-1-0 record; GD 12 = 15-3

      03 Jan CHE-LIV 2-2 (their last match)
      09 Jan LIV-SHR 4-1
      13 Jan LIV-ARS 0-0
      16 Jan LIV-BRE 3-0
      20 Jan ARS-LIV 0-2
      23 Jan CRY-LIV 1-3
      06 Feb LIV-CAR 3-1 (Diaz only played 31m, didn't score)
      10 Feb LIV-LEI 2-0 (Mo subbed in at 62m)

      ???

      Simply the greatest squad depth that I've ever seen at the club.
      Let's have a run at the lot, who knows what happens in the summer.
      An abundance of riches right now.

      8 games in 26 days coming up, and after a weeks off well play utd.

      Expect the squad to be used to the full in this time.

      Joe, Kostas, Harvey, Jones, Milner, Ox, Taki should all see time

      I just hope Jürgen knows the priorities:

      1. CL
      2. FA
      3. PL

      We need our best eleven saved for the cups bc they are our shot. PL is not nothing, but virtually 6 points behind a team like City, I dunno if you should waste your best guys there. BTW our go-to-team looks like this for me:

      Ali
      TAA-Matip-VVD-Robbo
      Eli-Fab-Thiago
      Salah-Jota-Mané

      How about our SECOND team squad.

      If you take today's starters as the first team, you can field a team of

                       Kelleher
      Neco - Gomez - Matip - Tsimikas
                       Hendo
                 Keita        Jones
          Divock    Bobby    Diaz

      That's a very strong team with only RB and RW as areas of potential concern.

      Potentially the biggest week of the season coming up. 2 highly winnable home games ( while city have a fixture they judt might drop something) and a cup final to end the week.

      Yes bigger games ahead, yes bigger pots to be won, but I cant help but think this week will be pivotal to the rest

      Not bad is it. Only thing I would say is you can probably forget Neco Williams in that, reckon he’s finished here.

      Neco is on loan at Fulham, and bossing it.
      Mad how quickly time moves on and Jota has Bobby in a 2nd team.
      Highlights the season Jota has had.

      Same here. I don’t see Neco good enough to be a RB on this team. At least not in the sense of giving Trent competition for the spot the way Kostas does with Robbo.

      Joe could definitely move over but then not sure who’d take his role at CB now that Nat the Gladiator is out on loan and likely out permanently this summer.

      You’ll never see Gomez play as a right back in this Klopp system, beyond shoring up for the last few minutes protecting a lead

      Milner is most likely our backup right back now, but the club are high on Conor Bradley.

      Gomez needs games, it ain't happening at CB just now, matip, konate and virg playing to well. So giving him games as cover for Trent makes sense.

      It also means we are the most fouled or infringed team in the league - within the box...

      Important not to forget Minamino today. Scored critical goals throughout the competition and was a bit unfortunate not to get on the field.

      A real standout hero and without him we wouldn't have won this trophy.

      The way they presented the statistic is absolute bullshit. We get more penalties because we spend more time in the opposition box than any other team, and our strikers are technically gifted, which means defenders are often left with no choice but to foul them.

      We’ve definitely tightened things up defensively. 1 goal conceded in the last 6 games, and that was an own goal courtesy of a deflection.
