Ed001, can you pinpoint why teams (admittedly only a couple games in) are creating so many more chances against us this season? Is it to do with this high line we seem to be adopting? Or maybe being complacent or overrun in midfield. Any opinion would be appreciated, we looked impregnable last season!

Having said that, another trophy in the bag, winnings a habit boys 😎.

{Ed001's Note - because the centre backs have not played well at all. They need to bed in again as a pair and stop this swapping around. Give the chosen pair a run of games together and they will improve.}

Van dijk had his worst couple games in a Liverpool shirt imo. He was caught in between two minds consistently and did not seem to have his head in the right spot. Even when balls went over his head he reverted to starting to yell at others at times rather than focus on getting back.

Hopefully just early season jitters that will be out over the next couple of weeks.

We don't seem to have a higher line this season, we always pushed towards the halfway or within 5-10 yards of it. However it simply seems on the transition from attacking to defending we used to drop 10 yards then hold the line. Now we are simply just holding the line.

think we need to realize, as hard as this is, that our guys aren't machines. Performance will come as will their peak condition etc.

Pickle, or it could mean that other teams have figured our game out and know that we can be got at, coupled with the fact that our CB partnership is not settled. Picking VVD out for criticism to me, is weak cos he is not the only one guilty here. TAA, Robbo and others in midfield are ripe for blame as well. To me, it is a system issue may need to be tweaked to not, make us so open when we lose the ball, while we improve and shake the rustiness off cos rustiness, there clearly is.

Last night we had Gomez and Henderson doing the job Trent AA does on his own same as Robertson on the other side. Yes they get help from midfield but it is usually more fluid than it has been.

Once we put all our players in their best positions it will all click again.

Id stick with VVD and Matip ed Gomez was quality last year but i think Virgil makes most people partnering him look good.
