why has our home form deserted us just when we needed it most? its a good job we have picked up those away wins but of course the frustration is that due to our lack of home form ( 0 wins in 3 winnable games since winning the derby) we are limping towards the line instead of already booking our place in the champions league.

No Mane and the team looks tired to me.

Coz away team sit back and make it hard to break the wall unlike when we travel the opposition is in front of their home crowd and play little bit more open. We aren't omen dimensional.

Culmination of injuries catching up with the team, tiredness, nervousness and teams dropping everyone behind the ball to frustrate us because others have had success with playing that way.

Spot on, Scarface. It is mixed bag of "goodies" that have plagued us of late. I will say that 13 of or 20 wins came vs lesser teams many of who parked the bus (even on their home turf) against us. At home, we need pace and quality from the flanks (RB's and wide men) and that is not happening right now and makes us easy to defend against. This is where we need to find solutions in the coming two games cos I see WH doing (even at home) that and Boro as well.

I do agree that it's a culmination of a few things catching up with us but I don't think the buck just sits with the players and I certainly don't feel 'tiredness' is the main issue. If players are that fatigued given a week off between games then they are not proper athletes, so again I doubt that is the main issue. The main problems have been preparation and tactics against certain opponents and injuries. When the same thing repeatedly happens against the same type of opponents then it has to be something more than just the mentality of the players. Either way we are away next game, and then relegated Middlesbrough at home, if we don't take all 6 then we don't deserve top 4 and if we don't get top 4 this season is a big failure. So very important couple of weeks for the future of Liverpool, some players and Klopp.

Agreee with Ron, klopp wearing them out in training maybe?

09 May 2017 19:44:07
The players may look a bit weary but I think it's more of what has already been said on these pages: tactical changes such as less pressing, less interchanging among the forwards, slower passing and an overall more controlled cautious game. I'd add the big gulf in quality between the starters and the bench, too. We're susceptible to fast counterattacks and maybe Klopp no longer wants to see the "LFC self-destruct once again" headlines anymore? So we're getting a dose of slow "grind it out" end-of-season games.

Players are more nervous than tired.
They appear to be too scared to concede on the counter attack and that's affecting their movement further up the pitch.

Spot on Ra and Supermane. A season is a grind and the organisms are starting to tire which is normal. This is why mental toughness is key at this latter stage of the season cos you have to just survive the grind which may be what Klopp has decided to do especially with the notion that he may NOT want to see us self-destruct again like we did last season at Basle. It is a tough one for him and I am sad for him BUT he's the manager and it is his job, as well as the players ' and ours as supporters, to push them over the line cos they're going to need us more than ever come Sun and next weekend.

3 reasons for me for the last 90 mins of drivel. No width. Didn't start Studge. Didn't start Lallana.
