      Honestly... I find it quite difficult to understand how finishing can be considered "player development" when talking about a professional footballer that plays as a striker - this is hardly a skill you are expected to coach into a 23yo top level player, is it not? Isn't that like, a prerequisite :D

      You seriously don't think players can work on and develop their finishing??? Wow...

      You should have a look at how Lewandowski developped over time. At Dortmund, he was very wasteful. With Bayern and now Barcelona, he was and is arguably the most lethal striker. His improvement was massive. Yet, he was around 26 when he moved to Bayern...

      What does he do well? I see a player that can't make a simple pass, can't hold play up, doesn't pick the right pass in key situations, gets in the way of other players and misses 1 on 1s consitently. I see a really poor player. I don't see a "raw" player I see a poor one.

      Quiet tonight cocker. Or will you be back on when he misses a chance or fails to make a pass spouting sh*te again

      A mate shared this with me last night. It's quite insightful. Rather than focussing on the skill of finishing he talks more about mind-set and confidence and the calmness that comes to a striker when these two factors are aligned as they need to be. He references himself and his earlier struggles to find the net and also the difference between a young Luis Suarez and the player he went on to become.

      Simple example would be Robbie Fowler about 93/94ish in a game against Arsenal at Anfield, handful of chances didn't convert one, a year later in the same fixture he bags a hattrick in three minutes.

      Suarez's first season here smashing shots off the crossbar, once he started get going, goals from all over the place.

      Nunez will come good.

      Agree with this. They aren't very similar types of player (apart from being a bit mental) but it is certainly true that Suarez was renowned for his radar being a bit off in front of goal to begin with, not by much mind, before scoring bundles in all manner of ways. I'm sure Nunez will score more consistently -- 1 in 2 isn't a bad start to be fair.

      Finishing comes and goes with confidence in some players. Look at Torres after being with us, look at Werner after leaving Leipzig, already got four in 9 games since his return there. Confidence is something that can play a huge difference and at the minute his confidence isn't where it needs to be, partly due to him getting that red card and also due to him not being able to get a real consistent run of games which he is starting to get now.



      Throw in the fact that he doesn't know a word of English and is being translated everything via our Brazilian lads and Luis Diaz.

      Quiete remarkable the amount of goals he has already.

      Imagine with a full season under his belt.

      I'm ignoring this due to the clear and obvious rules set out when discussing footballers that evidence, justification and common sense are not allowed to be used.

      I know Diaz and Jota are missing, but I wish Klopp would instruct Darwin to stay in the middle. I really feel we are not utilising him as best as we can

      He very often played from the left at Benfica. Either he started there, or he drifted there.

      He's better on the left side than Bobby and Klopp obviously feels that Carvalho is not ready for the starting 11 in the Prem. Therefore, Darwin is the best option to cover the wide left position. He's done a good job tracking back and helping Robbo.
      I agree with your general point. We bought him as a CF and need him to play there as much as possible to develop in the team.
      I assume he'll be out left today, he did a good job for the team when he played there. Hopefully it will be his last game there for a long time because Diaz and possibly Jota will be fit after WC and Darwin will be playing more central.

      Where does he play for Uruguay? Be interesting to see him in WC.

      I'll be honest with you, I'm starting to think Nunez isn't the player we hoped he would be. Early days but I remain unconvinced.
