Really don’t think we’ll be watching Keita in a Liverpool next season, if we could get 25-30m for him I would snap your hand off for it! I don’t get the love he’s been getting over the last few weeks, I don’t think he’s been nearly as good as some people are making out.

Take today for example, we were playing well and controlling the midfield, Curtis Jones looked like our most dangerous midfielder and looked most likely to make something happen and as soon as the substitution happened and he was replaced by Keita, we lost all shape in midfield, we were overrun and could have been beaten.

He never looks like he’s putting in 100% and he doesn’t strike me as someone who will grab the game by the scruff of the neck when the chips are down. If he had his head screwed on and was really determined to make it work, he would have learned English when we signed him rather than wait 2 years!

He played about 18 minutes 🤣.

There are some fans who no matter what will just never take to a player and I guess Keita is yours
I was like that with hendo for years and now if if doesn’t play I’m not happy at all.

11 Jul 2020 19:11:09
Gini for me. Can’t see what he adds that someone else couldn’t do a lot better.

I completely ageee JK_red. Ignore these "holier than thou" super fans who are afraid to say the truth. Keita is a bang average player.

The odd goal/ assist does not make up for his all around game. He is weak, lazy, positionally inept, careless in possession, has no intensity, hides from the ball and runs down blind alleys. Credit where it is due, when he can be bothered he is good at pressing, can thread a pass, and is clearly quite skillful on the ball. I'm not trying to launch a character assassination here, but he has more flaws than a 15 year old FIAT.

Keita has had 2 years and if anything he has regressed. We totally lost the midfield battle today after he came onto the pitch. I'm so disappointed in his attitude since he signed for Liverpool. He's got to be sold in my opinion.

11 Jul 2020 19:55:37
The truth is he barely featured today to say sell get rid 🤣 nothing about being a super fan pal, just being fair, logical and non reactionary 👍

Keita does need to improve but to say sell off the back of the today is completely unfair. Instantly as keita came on we conceded through no fault of his, so Burnley's tails were up, which explains why Burnley came into the game. But if you want to blame Keita for that solely go for it. Rather be a 'super fan' than someone who looks to pick a scapegoat every time Liverpool don't win a match.

Post of the day for me mate 100 percent agree with you
Some fans just moan because they can and to pick a scapegoat well for me is pathetic
Win together lose together.

11 Jul 2020 20:56:03
Why do you assume this is about todays performance? People have been saying to sell up for a while now. He has been here 2 years and he's never fully fit, and he never plays well for more than 10 minutes a month.

He's not good enough. People need to get over it and stop making excuses for a £54m player who's stealing a wage off our club.

11 Jul 2020 21:46:33
OP, So keita is the one to get the beating now, a guy who only played 18 minutes in a game that we should have won hands down had our chances been taken by our forwards, Salah in particular way before Keita came on. Some LFc fans really do my head in with such posts that make no sense at all. Moaning for the sake of it, is tired and boring. The negativity is deafening here. Sad.

11 Jul 2020 22:33:34
Basically, if we want to win the title we need better players than were out there today.

What other top team picks our players to start?


11 Jul 2020 22:43:22
You posted it after the game, and specifically said we totally lost the midfield battle when he came on.

I said in my previous post he needs to improve, no doubt about it, no excuses made for him. He had a hour against Brighton, if people want to pick at that performance fair enough. I don't feel today was anything to go by except make a scapegoat of someone.

Klopp seems to think he's more than a average player and seemingly wants to keep ahold of him. I'm happy enough to trust his judgment.

11 Jul 2020 23:03:52
Oh dear! Funny he Keita was our best player against Brighton 3 days ago. And had huge hand in both goals and his pressing was brilliant! Support the players who have just won us the league!

12 Jul 2020 08:37:40
Who needs rival fans then we moan and groan at each other for having opinions. Why can’t we debate on here and allow people to has a say without reverting to you’re not a proper fan high hours bull as an argument all the time.

12 Jul 2020 10:50:28
Have not seen enough in the two seasons here to convince me he'll ever be at the level. One or two good performances aside it's his lack of effort for me. Somebody mentioned they couldn't take to Henderson at the start but at least he never gave anything less than 100%.

If he played for Utd we'd be rinsing him constantly for being overrated. Sorry but this signing has not worked out.

12 Jul 2020 12:47:14
Best player against Brighton 🤣 he was terrible after the first 8 minutes!

12 Jul 2020 12:51:10
Keita hides from the ball? Not the keita I saw. I watched the game without background noise and you could hear Virgil all the way through the game shouting commands, brilliant. And when naby got the ball you could hear Virgil saying "go naby" clearly because along with gini he is a player who can move the midfield forward by 30 yards just by running with it. He was class vs Brighton as he has in many games.

The team has just won the league. None of them should be getting slated. I understand fringe players being discussed in terms of transfers, but keita isn't a fringe player. He plays cl and big pl games. I just don't see why people hate him? Can't work it out. He isn't lazy.

{Ed001's Note - sorry but he is lazy. I agree he doesn't hide from the ball, but he is not working back quickly enough. He leaves gaps. He was far from class v Brighton, he just had a stellar ten minutes at the start. The fact Virgil is having to tell him to go says it all for me. He should be picking it up and driving forward automatically, but he dallies more often than not. The lad is not working out, injured far too often, too many off field issues, and not performing well enough when he does play. We all had high hopes but he is not living up to them at all. That is why everytime there is a must win game, even when he is fit, Klopp sits him on the bench and turns to Gini, Hendo, Milner and Fabinho. Keita is a fringe player, no point denying it, that is exactly what he is. That is why he has featured in 15 Premier League games, rather than 30.}

It's frustrating ed01. I was so chuffed when we signed him, I thought it would go down as one of our greatest signings. And you see him put in some lovely touches, beats people and its clear the talent is there. I know he hasn't lived up to our expectations. But there is the feeling that he Could and soon. He doesn't work as hard as gini or Hendo, perhaps he has never had to, I guess if he was going to put in the effort he would have done so by now. I just don't want to give up on him, it's like when your mates are telling you your gf is no good and you refuse to believe it. I will come round. Wed take a big loss on him atm though.

{Ed001's Note - I just look at it as it giving Jones a chance to blossom if we get rid. Jones showed more against Burnley than Keita has since joining. And Jones gives his all. I do get what you mean, I would love Keita to step up and prove me wrong. It would be great to see him suddenly working hard for 90 minutes and become integral to the team.}
