Great result today, huge win. Thought we really dominated them and suffocated them through the middle. Coutinho was back to his best, what a perfomance. Emre and Lucas both were very good. Not Lovren's biggest fan but he really dominated Lukaku alongside Matip. Clyne needs to be replaced, absolutely awful, so bad on the ball and blocks ever passing lane. Hopefully TAA takes his spot. Praying Mane is okay.

What did clyne do wrong today that no other player did? Nothing! Yes he made one or two rash challenges and gave the ball away but I don't see anyone complaining about Can doing that? Apart from that clyne was decent today! Put a few good balls into the box too. Undeserved criticism there sakho!

He's so average only his pace saves him, been at fault for several goals this season. Slows down every attack and is dreadful going forward, he'll be replaced in the Summer.

Every attack? Bold statement that. lovren has been at fault for several goals but where's his criticism? He didn't nothing majorly wrong today. But I suppose you'll blame him for the goal we conceded too?

Clyne was not the reason we conceded one today apparently. He offerns nothing up front. His crossing is terrible for an international. How is that we just can't defend any set pieces. It's like the opposition is playing for corners to score one against us.

It is not just about what Clyne does wrong. RedTed21 can you please explain what Clyne actually offers to the team other than pace?

01 Apr 2017 18:28:05
I never said he was a quality player was just stating the fact there was no need to criticise him today. He did nothing wrong had a decent game but still gets criticism his delivery today was failed good but isn't usually this standard. He do agree he should be replaced but no need to criticise him after today's match which sakho was doing.

01 Apr 2017 18:49:12
Redted, there's no agenda here. I don't rate Lovren at all he'll be replaced like Clyne.

01 Apr 2017 18:54:41
I am not basing my opinion only on today's performance RedTed21. You will hardly find any post of mine taking a dig at our players but Clyne simply is not and will never be good enough to take us to forward.

The fact is that fullbacks are one of the most important ingredients in Klopp's setup and Clyne simply does not live up to the standard. The only thing he has got going for him is pace and a good engine. The desire Clyne shows on the pitch is nowhere to be found. You would think that he can improve his game but shows absolutely no intention of doing so. He offers nothing to this team unless you can point out where he was deserving of selection in todays matc irrespective of us winning.

I'm convinced people criticise clyne now because a certain someone doesn't rate him. I know he's not the best fullback going forward but he is decent defensively, and I think people are trying to make RB a priority in the summer when other areas need much more investment than right back. If TAA was given proper opportunities I would be all for him getting a few games there to see if he's ready but he's not, just like Gomez and ojo they aren't getting opportunities and there must be a reason for that. I must say I didn't think clyne was the right back we should have went for when we signed him but he hasn't been as bad as some have made him out to be. On the right you have people attack clyne because he's not that great going forward or can't cross, on the left you have people attack Milner because he gets exposed defensively it's almost like an oxymoron, your damned if you do your damned if you don't. Don't get me wrong sometimes the criticism is justified but sometimes, like today, it's just random nitpicking.

{Ed001's Note - when has decent defensively been good enough when you are crap on the ball? Clyne gets criticised because he is not good enough going forward or defensively. If you are happy with mediocrity, which is what you are describing there in Clyne, then go right ahead and be happy. Liverpool, however, should not be and Clyne is a mediocre right back who is not good enough to get in the England team, let alone our team.}

Kman2, I know Clyne is not good enough. Clyne is not good on the ball, can't cross, is a ball watcher defensively and clearly a FB with that much wrong with his game is good enough for you BUT don't expect us not to push back against your notion. TAA is a much better player than he is and has better end product to his game and can defend.

If he was 3 years older and more experienced, Clyne would be gone. BTW, Klopp disagrees with you as he wanted Clyne replaced last summer.
