Really worrying trend in front of goal. Outplaying most teams but still so vulnerable from counter. with little threat in front of goal,

think we are in for a rough month of results, with a lot of draws thrown in.

Last night, yes sure it wasn't too good in the final third and in and around the Arsenal penalty area. With Mane and Salah out, you may be right that we struggle for goals for the rest of Jan but I'm not so sure I see a worrying trend yet. Prior to last night, we scored four on Saturday and in our previous match we scored two against Chelsea. The match before that was the defeat against Leicester, but again before that we scored three against Leicester in the Carabao Cup, two against Tottenham and three against Newcastle. In terms of trends, what worries me more through those results is how many we conceded (one v Shrewsbury, two v Chelsea, two v Spurs, three v Leicester, one v Newcastle) . We need to start shutting teams out again.


Who knows how January will play out but with all to play for in the second leg of the Carabao, and league matches against Brentford and Palace (whilst City and Chelsea play each other), it's quite feasible that in two weeks time we could be talking about having closed the gap on City and/ or moved away from Chelsea slightly, reached a domestic cup final and still with the FA Cup and Champions League to come. I'd take three scrappy 1-0 wins in our next three matches so set us up nicely going into February.

What's wrong with you RR? How dare you be so positive? 😉.

RR, my sentiments exactly. We concede way too easily esp. in games where we are in control and have the lead and then, thrown it away. We have dropped 10 points from winning positions, 6 while having a 2 goal lead. How many points are we behind City? 11 points. Do the math.

We turn 3 of those draws into wins (add the LC loss to that), we are more than solid. Our issues are of our own doing right there on the pitch. Nowhere else and nobody else, IMO. This is my main issue BUT others disagree and keep posting that squad depth is the issue. Squad depth does not help you make better decisions on the pitch esp. when you have the lead.

If we don't step it up we could get pasted by City, arguably they won't hoof the ball into the box. Which apperently we have no concept over how to deal with
so disappointing after the other results today.

DeanW

{Ed077's Note - Brentford did "hoof" the ball into the box though, did they? Liverpool supporters of all should be familiar with the concept of choosing the ball into the box, seeing that they have 2 of the best in the game in the form of their FBs


1.) 25 Sep 2021 19:43:56
Great game, all credit to Brentford, at least they wanted to actually play football. Disappointing to be up twice and get pegged back tho.


2.) 25 Sep 2021 19:45:32
we're not good enough, end of. unfortunately.


3.) 25 Sep 2021 19:53:54
Credit to Brentford fully deserved their point.


4.) 25 Sep 2021 19:58:11
What I don't understand about our constant complaining about teams playing long balls yet that is our go to game plan when teams sit back and defend against us. We actually play a lot of long balls. We have struggled against long balls for 3 seasons now. Nothing has improved regarding our defending against teams that go long against us.


5.) 25 Sep 2021 20:00:09
Aye, I know, top of the league definitely isn't good enough. 🙈.


6.) 25 Sep 2021 20:02:39
Yeah? that's why I said they hoofed the ball into the box! It was well done and we had no ability to sort out marking, why Trent was marking 3 Brentford players is beyond me. I'm not saying they were incorrect to do so, since tehy got a point. But i wouldn't think City will play that same strategy, hence maybe we can defend slightly better.


7.) 25 Sep 2021 20:11:18
I thought Robbo was awful today. Tmiskas (sp) should be in the team. What are your thoughts ed1?


8.) 25 Sep 2021 20:33:38
The OP hasn’t been on here since the last time we didn’t win. Funny how some people vanish when we win and only turn up when they have something to moan about.


9.) 25 Sep 2021 20:48:01
Agree with Mcfly here.


10.) 25 Sep 2021 21:00:48
Aye Thunderbird, strange one that lol isn't it? Ntini trolled the live chat too before being kicked off, now back here stirring and acting like an actual supporter.

We drew, defended poorly a few times, it happens, we're top of the league and we go again lads big game coming up.


11.) 25 Sep 2021 21:05:49
Thunderbird stalking people 🤣🤣🤣.


12.) 25 Sep 2021 22:19:50
Been on here for years, just been taking a break, and was actually on here when we beat Palace, but you can stalk me some more if that's your thing!


13.) 25 Sep 2021 23:14:28
@pdiddy - we’re not good enough for what? I assume you haven’t looked at the league table and have missed the last 2 or 3 seasons.

YNWA.


14.) 26 Sep 2021 01:29:12
there is a big difference between smacking a long ball up to the head of a striker and playing for 50/ 50s, versus putting in crosses or long through balls.

well done to brentford tho, they got a good result for them.


15.) 25 Sep 2021 19:57:52
They weren't 2 of the best full backs today Ed077 neither could cross a decent ball and don't get me started on their defending or lack of it, trent seems to think he has a free roll at times and for all his attacking powers he is our weak link defensively.

{Ed077's Note - yeah, not great against Brentford.}


 

 

02 Sep 2021 00:55:07
I understand people will support unbendingly regardless of what seems to me to be a poor transfer window (though i respect FSG for trying to get us in order financially after some big spends in the past) .
But my question is, what are we going to do vs the low block, we were really poor last season and got denied throughout by deep teams. We weren't even close to breaking down 10 men chelsea last week.

And now with no new forward options, bar minamo and this youth. How do people see us dealing with it in the future? I think chelseas performance will galvanise a lot of the league to copy and paste the low block as they did last year. Worries me!

DeanW

1.) 02 Sep 2021 02:10:15
Think you're over-thinking and a lot of fans here are over-reacting. We had no problem playing against Norwich and Burnely and we won 8-10 games on trot getting in the top 4 last season with no defense so have no idea why all of a sudden players being back have weaken us more?

Chelsea are a super team who defeated City 3 times consecutively does that mean teams have worked how to beat City?

I'm sure we've enough to beat the likes of palace, wolves, etc which is what needed to compete for the title.


2.) 02 Sep 2021 05:40:37
Leeds game would answer few questions. They will be tight and still adventurous.
The problem last year was conceding really stupid goals as our defense was knackered and and we couldn't figure out a defensive partnership. I don't think now, with the defence back we will concede those kind of goals and as long as we don't concede there is always a chance we will score atleast one.
As for the chelsea game I will still put that on klopp. He got his team a bit wrong not starting tsimikas and jota our inform players.
Also klopp needs to sort out his midfield picks asap and stick with them. He cannot keep chopping and changing. Stick with elliot thiago and fabs.


3.) 02 Sep 2021 08:09:36
Lol Akira, Leeds are not tight at the back they play open and expanisve football. they won't sit back. no chance.


4.) 02 Sep 2021 08:20:47
60 odd games a season and Klopp needs to play the same midfield all the time.
You really don't have much of a clue do you Akira?


5.) 02 Sep 2021 09:28:57
Why is Thiago always one of thr first picks for midfield. His form at Liverpool doesn’t really justify it. I’m not saying he doesn’t have 5he capability, just that he hasn’t shown it consistently on the pitch for Liverpool.


6.) 02 Sep 2021 10:01:34
Take into account that Thiago was playing in an injury ravaged team in his first season. It would be extremely unfair to judge him on that.
See what this season brings.


7.) 02 Sep 2021 10:42:59
@WDW: Because he was one of the best players in the last 10 games. Things were different before that and pretty much for the entire team barring a few.


8.) 02 Sep 2021 10:55:04
Again i think yourself and a lot of other supporters are overreacting to what was a total freak season last year. The injuries, lack of crowd and fatigue meant that we were playing 10 times slower than we were during the title winning season, when low block teams didn’t cause us much of a problem. Gini was killing every attack and Mane and Firmino weren’t even moving, let alone controlling the ball. The midfield was ruined and then the capacity to play a high line and advanced fullbacks was ruined as well. It was absolutely awful.

Even that was only in the middle bit of the season when it all fell apart, the beginning and the end of the season we were pretty good. We didn’t even get a chance to play with our new toys properly as well, the likes of Jota, Thiago and Tsimikas will go a very long way to breaking down the low block sides.

As for the Chelsea game, they’re a top defensive side with a tactically astute manager, the red card and the timing of it spoilt the game, Klopp probably got his selection a bit wrong, it’s just one of them things where you have to say ‘that’s football’ where mad stuff happens on the day that you can’t predict, you take the point and you move on.


9.) 02 Sep 2021 12:28:59
We won cl and epl with klopp sticking to the same midfield 50 odd games.
Its you who needs to get a clue. don't start banter without information.
Klopp works best when he knows who his first team is day in and day out and having someone to backup in case of niggles.
He is not good with changing and chopping. His substitutions are sometimes questionable. It is evident in his managerial career.
As long as he has a decided first team squad he will fo better.


10.) 02 Sep 2021 21:39:27
Akira if you are comparing a dystopian, C.V. rifle died season as a valid yardstick to judge the normalcy of this season and what could happen then your comparison and premise is already flawed to bits.

Klopp is the manager that rotates the most esp in the December fixtures (winning the most points bar last season due to injuries) so your point of playing the same midfield/ not knowing how to chop and change is actually wrong, completely.

As for substitutions, no manager ever gets things right every time cos sometimes, they overthink things and get caught up in their heads a bit. It happens. Also, it’s easy for people to say that after the fact whereas the manager is having to deal with things in real time on the pitch. We take the point and move on.

Assuming we could shift Origi/ Shaq and then considering the state of our finances. I can only assume we would be promoting another youth player up to join the main group, alongside that of Elliot and Jones.
Is anyone familiar with the u21's and any good players that could be moving up?

DeanW

1.) 05 Aug 2021 13:00:44
If we shift both Shaq and Divock, we definitely bring in a new forward without doubt. Gordon will be the next attacking player to come through the ranks, once we shift on Minamino as well.
Origi, Shaq, Taki OUT
Gordon, Elliot and a new versatile young forward as the replacements.

How are you feeling about our CB situation over Xmas? Bit worrying only having 2 fit, and our last sub (Fabs) being injured.

DeanW

1.) 13 Dec 2019 20:23:32
I think Sepp needs more time. He looked pretty shaky in the Arsenal game. If we were to go with a youth player, I'd sooner go with Hoever, or even Gini at CB which he has done once or twice and didn't embarrass himself.

Hopefully it won't come to that and Gomez or (God Forbid) VVD can stay fit until Matip is back.


2.) 13 Dec 2019 20:25:30
Millie and or Hendo or Gini will play as CB. Not ideal, but they're experienced enough to patch through.
Sepp or Ki-Jana are also options. We'll find a way. We always do.


3.) 13 Dec 2019 21:36:02
I’m not worried about at all.


4.) 13 Dec 2019 23:58:27
As long as VVD stays fit, we will be fine. He is good enough to hold the defence by himself while his usual partners are recovering from injury. We would have major problems if he got injured, however.


5.) 14 Dec 2019 01:16:08
Isn't Caulker available on loan? He can also play backup to Firmino as a bonus.


6.) 14 Dec 2019 04:45:27
Henderson will play CB if one of VVD or Gomez is absent at this point IMO.


7.) 14 Dec 2019 17:32:10
Well that's the thought of Gini being cover at the back gone tits up.

Would he leave on a free? Going to be difficult to find budget for a big signing without some big sales.

How can we be so far behind financially, how do cities/ united/ chelsea's wages make sense?! are they just better managed then us?
How can we compete with these teams in the long run?

DeanW

{Ed0666's Note - we can’t and we’re gonna get relegated

At this point wouldn't it be better to let Keita go nearly for free? and just reduce the wages you have, dude can barely play 10 games a season, seems a bit of a wage drain for someone you could just replace with a youngster.

I thought he was going to have one of those games where he looks like all we hoped he'd be, beautiful volley, then its like he vanished after doing that great moment.

I think we get 2nd-3rd this year, don't think we have the legs for the whole season, and I just don't think you can compete with City over the whole season. Injuries are still too impactful. Must admit City have a crazy squad, though i think Chelsea if they lose a few defenders to injury could be vulnerable like we were last year


Maybe if Minamo or Ox get some time and become challengers for the 1st team will we have a solid shot
I'm hopeful for a cup at least.

Very worrying, is milner our only cover for that position at the moment?

Saying we're top of the league is so irrelevant when you actually look at the table. We shoudl have won, and it wasn't a great performance. Its ok to say it.
