I wear my lucky Liverpool shirt for every game and it only gets washed when we lose. It does sometimes get very smelly but at the moment it is far too clean for my liking. That's all I have to say on the matter. Bring on Southampton on Wednesday when I will be wearing said clean Liverpool shirt in the Main Stand. I bet the fella who sits next to me prays for a defeat sometimes.

Where is the real Klopp? He has been very subdued the last few weeks. The fist clenching, heart thumping one has been missing the last few weeks.

People right in and ask the edds their opinion of how the team performed and the edds give their honest opinions. Some times the critisise a players performance and people agree or disagree but their opinions are accepted. Then we have supporters writing in with their opinions and if it is a criticism then they can be abused and their loyalty to LFC questioned. I am along standing LFC supporter and I was absolutely devastated by our performance against Swansea and as has happened in similar games our defence made bad mistakes and we were punished. Milner has performed very well as a stand in lb but he is not quick enough or able to cross with his left foot to be a proper wing back like our system requires. I would also question Clynes ability going forward to suit our needs. Finally we may already have the answer to our CB problems but as of yet it is still a problem. So if I critisise a player or performance it's because I care and I want our team to be as good as the teams I have been privileged to watch for nearly sixty years and I will always support them

Can someone shed a bit of light on the Sturridge situation. Why one of the most clinical strikers in europe is seemingly being sidelined. Always got the impression that Wiji and Can were supposed to fight for that central midfield position. Yet it was Couts who ended up coming deeper to create play. I would have thought that having Couts or Lallana as part of the midfield 3 and add Sturridge to front 3 would add some serious potency and end product to the team.

We are Liverpool tralalalala!
I'm all for criticising the team when they are not playing well but to slate players for slating sake is crazy. And the constant moaning like we are going to drop out of the top four. please if anyone offered us this position at the start of the season we would of snapped their hands off.
Yes we want to win the league, but we've gone through a rough couple of months with games coming thick and fast and we are still in the top four. I remember years back when we were out of the title race in January.
So let's get behind the team and take a game at a time and treat every game from the off like we did when we were 2-0 down. No game in this league is a gimmie.
21 Jan 2017 20:55:49
Win some you lose some. No one has an automatic right to walk on the pitch and collect 3 points.
Lallana wasted on the wing. Drop Can and let lallana drop back.
Harry Wilson or Ojo for the right wing position for me whilst Mane's away.
TAA in for Clyne.
Don't worry red men, everyone has off days
21 Jan 2017 20:43:52
Everyone its not just a dip its been 2 months of up and down results look at all klavans mistakes when we have sakho in reserves yes yes attitude and all but fact is prob be 9 points better off now if he hadplayed plus get a better fee as he would be in shop window then sort defence out come summer if I said play sakho and u win the league don't and u fail u would pick wining the league over making a point cause he's missed behaved

Emre Can has been poor for a while, and reality is we don't have central midfielders of quality to replace. With Matip back, I should think a central midfielder would be a priority. I realize we have other options, but I am talking about quality to compete at the top of the league. Hendo/ Lallana and another top Central mid. Maybe we should have kept Allen?
21 Jan 2017 20:12:26
I know it's pretty disappointing the last few games results and performance wise, we can all see it and feel it. I know I'll be shot down for this but I do believe we need two if not 3 more players. Can who I always liked has seemed to gone backwards, Henderson great defending but his forward passing the last few outings extremely poor. Mane is a huge loss all agree there. I think Clyne very ordinary especially going forward. I think there are places throughout the team that need improving. Klavan is ok, Gomez for me. Sturidge and Origi not happening both seem not suited to Kloops game.
The real reason I think we are playing like we are is tiredness, when Koop done this at BD they had a nice Xmas break to recharge their batteries but not in Premiership, the extra games seem to have caught up to us. I think a few quality additions in certain will give us a much needed jolt to get us going again.
Who to buy, a midfielder who can pass and open defences and a quick winger and maybe a right back who can pick up a pass in the final third.

What do people think is the fundamental problem with the team right now?
Many are blaming team selection, Klopp, fans, players attitude, or simply a dip in form.
I think it is a lack of confidence, but fundamentally one that stems from a lack of talent and depth in the first team.
We have been punching above our weight. In first half of season, Mane, Coutinho, Firmino and Lallana compensated for lack of talent elsewhere in the team. Now we have been exposed.
I know we struck oil with the likes of Suarez and Coutinho, and look to have done so with Matip, and made nice profits from Suarez and Sterling, but is there a little too much hype about our player recruitment?
Many of our buys in the last few years, especially in the 15-20 million pound range, have turned out to be nothing to write home about, tbh, or hardly played for the club.
I think United are in a similar predicament right now, but they will simply spend until they get it right. Unfortunately, we cannot.

Some of the posts on here after a defeat are a joke some of you need to give your head a wobble! We have had a few poor results recently yes and the way we have been playing recently hasn't been of the standard of our earlier superb form but this is football these things happen, people questioning Klopp are having a laugh honestly they are! Injuries, playing in the cups and losing a key part of our attack to the AFCON has had an effect which it would to any team.
Still in both cups and still in the top 4 with a more than realistic chance of being in the mix in 4 months time in the most competitive league in the world and in only the managers 2nd season! Never lose hope, never give up until its gone and we will all never walk alone!

Glad I missed chat today but what a terrible match. First half was utterly dire, I'd say the worst we've played all season.
Swans then woke us up by scoring twice but it wasn't long before we went back into snooze mode.
Not enough intensity in the first half, maybe it's something to do with the KO time?
We were flat, too predictable and far too slow.
Firmino was MOM for me by a distance. Can was poor again and Clyne was garbage. Clyne can't defend at all and when he attacks he gets into great positions, delays the cross and then just smashes it straight at the defender. No quality, no guile that's why he got no decent crosses in.

So many fickle liverpool fans. Klopp has us playing well and a few bad results and all of a sudden we need a new squad and to invest 100 million in our squad. It's ridiculous the things I've read. Go all out and sign van dijk? Henderson is rubbish apparently when he dominated pogba last week. I trust klopp he's the best manager we have had in recent years. Would you rather we go back to hodgson Rodgers or Dalglish? Every team has a dip we have to realise that. We need to get behind the team and support them. Not go out and spend 10 billion on a new squad. Look how well spurs are doing from good recruitment, good manager and a strong team spirit.

After watching todays game - as I've been saying all season, there are a few players who have been fortunate enough to work alongside a world class manager who has taken their game up another level. But still, without a shadow of a doubt Dejan Lovren is not of Liverpool quality. Wijnaldum is not convincing even though he got the assist and Emre Can plays with the arrogance of a player with twice his ability. aside from his off the field discipline issues, Mamadou Sakho should have been given the opportunity to play this season. he is a beast and although he is clumsy at times, he likes forward passes and is very difficult to beat in the air.
Also, at times the whole team play with this arrogance, which I don't particularly understand because we haven't actually won anything yet! We did not show Swansea enough respect today, we mainly knocked it about in our own half and just thought that we could pick the lock with no problems, but Swansea had a better plan than what we did today - they deserved to beat us - reality check today! Onwards and upwards but if we don't get 3 points next week against Chelsea, we are going to be looking over our shoulders at Man Utd. and then not beating them twice this season may come back to haunt us and restrict us from getting back in the CL. Mane is a big miss, plus Sturridge deserves a long run in the side similar to the ones that Origi gets - he's the best striker we have.
21 Jan 2017 17:23:02
Can is bang off form and has been pretty much all season. I think it's time to drop him and do the diamond with Phil at the tip and Danny and Bobby up top. we miss mane desperately and if klopp not going into the market then today has to make him tinker a bit. it worked well at old Trafford. We need to score wed so perfect time to do it. Today was flat. a change is needed now
21 Jan 2017 17:04:16
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone.
21 Jan 2017 16:58:53
Tell me what Klopp sees in Can? Last few weeks, his confidence has looked shot, he slows down our attacks and gives away balls too easily. I would have played Sturridge on the right today, with Lallana- Henderson- Wijanaldum in the midfield. Can is becoming a liability in that midfield real quick
21 Jan 2017 16:51:51
Although the manager must carry some blame for today's result due to his cautious team selection (playing both Can and Wijnaldum at home) I get the impression that there is an attitude problem within the camp.
It appears that the players cannot get themselves up against the so called lesser teams. I was at the game today and the players only started passing with urgency after we went 2-0 down.
21 Jan 2017 16:18:32
Glad to see people are starting to finally see that wijnaldum and can are massive duds. It only klopp could see it too.
21 Jan 2017 14:09:10
Ok now things get worrying. No matter what anybody says, we should be beating the bottom team in the league. Not good enough and to be frank it's pathetic what happened? It's not over yet I get that anything can happen but still not good enough even if we win.
