So what have we learned from last season, same old same old. Go a goal down, then struggle to break them down.

Origi doesn't cut it for me he needs proper game time and a loan out! Young lads did well Kent Is coolness on the field looks good! Ward done well too! Vvd and a striker if u ask me what we need!

Jerk knee . rearrange as appropriate, it's preseason mate and the 2nd game in 24 hours.

It was our second team effectively. But shows our limited squad depth. That's what we will have to watch every week if coutinho goes haha. No creativity just can and wij passing side to side haha.

And that people are still knee-jerkers with a maximum memory capacity of 90 minutes.

Grow up with the negativity. Atletico are a very good defensive team, well drilled plus we didn't have our creative players in together. It's a friendly!

So what have we learnt. Same old same old boring comments from boring low life's who only love to critisize. Bore off. Sorry Eds, probably youngsters who are clueless to understand friendlies are purely to get fit.

Lost the game in the first half, a lot of the players didn't gel, like milner and woodburn, or flanagan and mane, or gomez and klaven, passing and tempo was poor, 2nd game in two days meant we couldn't play our first eleven, and then 2nd half, I thought that we upped our game, and with a bit of luck, we could have just got the win, just a small point, I don't get the way some goalies have their arms high up when facing a Penalty .

1st half Athletico Sat back nice and deep knowing we struggle to break down sides like that. 2nd half Klopp brought an injection of pace and high intensity which Madrid struggled more to deal with. It his the youngsters can do a role and effectively. Some silly touches and wrong decisions but that's how you learn. Overall I'm happy with our pre season.

Our second team just drew with a vastly experienced Athletico Madrid team. Am I the only one that's ok with that?

Bearing in mind we started the game without any of our first choice back 4, Solanke instead of Firmino or Sturridge, Woodburn instead of Salah and no Coutinho, we were missing a few of the usual suspects who unlock tight defences and so I thought we did alright. Goal was unfortunate and CBs switched off for the run into the box and also rebound, but aside from that we looked the better side.

Second half we looked more dangerous side again, but still had a lot of youngsters on so don't read too much into the result and struggle to score against a side like Atletico.

Main takeaways for me were:
1) we rely on Coutinho, Mane, Salah to break down tough defences as they have the pace and unpredictability others (eg Lallana, Gini) lack. we need to keep Coutinho and can't afford to sell him

2) our second string back 4 is a bit lacking, at CB in particular but Flanagan and Milner also didn't cover themselves in glory tonight

3) Solanke and Origi are good players but still quite green and Firmino and Sturridge are clear front runners for striker

4) Hendo and Can looks our best starting setup at the base of a 4-2-3-1.not sure anyone else convinces there (eg Gini looks better further forward to me)

5) Grujic continues to impress me in how he pops up in dangerous positions all the time - somehow we look dangerous when he's in midfield making late runs into the box

6) defence is still priority
