What does everyone think of Minamino's performance when he came on?

I thought he was very good. Had a few bad touches BUT he did his job of harassing the Ajax defenders. He was on top of them, got very physical and his movement and availability was great to see. That cross he put in should have been tucked in by Gini and that would have capped off a very encouraging performance on his part.

Looked decent, I think if he gets a few goals when coming on as a sub then we might see him start a few games given how the fixtures are coming thick and fast. Thought Jota did well too.

I thought he was alright. What seemed evident to me was the replacement front 3 lack the physicality of saddy Bobby and mo. They aren't famous for being physical, but all three are very strong. Stronger than they're often given credit for.

Always liked the fellow, its been clear for a while now why we got him in. Will definitely be a big play for us this season.

22 Oct 2020 13:50:19
I agree - looks very keen and could be a very important season for him. Jota has also hugely impressed me since joining.

22 Oct 2020 13:52:07
Rm I thought he looked sharp mate. Klopp Described him as a machine after the game. I also thought Jota played well he looked extremely sharp and hungry which is great giving us options off the bench and to rotate in future games.

Yes I like the idea of fresh energy In that forward line, I love bobby but he is going backwards in productivity even his pressing is not what it is, we should rest him and let him regain his hunger and worth in the team . Now is the time to put taki or jota in that forward position or we can alternate them 2 with salah and mane .

22 Oct 2020 16:21:15
I've thought when taki has played in prem he looked very lightweight, perhaps a little too lightweight. I was surprised to see him still very lightweight even in the champs league a competition which is a lot less physical. Makes me wonder if this is why taki hasn't had many opportunities.

Minamino is improving all the time which is the main thing. He'll get a few starts for sure just to rest the front three.

Jota has been great but I just wish for a bit more directness from him sometimes. Sometimes he gets the ball and takes a second or 2 to survey the landscape before making his move whereas Salah and Mane don't give defences time to set and just start driving towards the goal. I think he should do the same because he is excellent when he does.

22 Oct 2020 18:09:13
Nevada, I disagree. Taki was winning headers and barging into defenders and making sure their headers lacked direction and rarely ever gave them time on the ball. Not sure what you mean about him being lightweight esp. for the CL.

I can agree that he is a bit behind in the PL which is normal BIUT to say he is lightweight for the CL, is wide off the mark, IMO.

I like him. Still not convinced he’s set for the Bobby role.
It’s always hard to judge a player who rarely plays/ starts in the first team. If he started a game with Mane, Salah, Thiago, Trent, Robbo etc. you’d see a better player because he’d be surrounded by the elite players from the off.

22 Oct 2020 22:17:18
Klopp called jota a machine, not taki.

22 Oct 2020 22:31:18
Asked whether game-management was the reason for his early substitutions, the German replied: ‘Yeah, that’s one thing, game management is one thing, the other thing is use the power of the others.

‘You saw they were fresher, they were the hardest working. It’s a bit of a shame that Diogo didn’t score, Shaq was lively and Taki is a machine.

‘He’s everywhere, he defends like a devil and then offensively he’s really involved. Nice one-twos together with Diogo on the side where they came into the box.

I agree with you, Hailstones. No player is undroppable and with the glut of games coming up, it would be hard for any player to perform at the optimum in every game.
