I saw online that the notorious black Mercedez Van with the tainted windows just pulled into Melwood. Wonder who's in it.

'I always say and I really think that the only reason for a defeat, is to react in the right way. You learn from it then, it is just a result. You don't learn from it then, it is a real disaster".

Fully agree.

MKS, pretty easy to grasp.

Oh behave RM, I’m with you Adam, I didn’t get it straight away.

Not being able to replace any player who is short on confidence and not playing well enough is a weakness to this team right?

5.) 11 Oct 2020 11:03:45
WarMachine73, I think your post is in response to another thread. Not this one.

6.) 11 Oct 2020 12:44:44
Correct. The thread above about the undroppable Bobby Dazzler.

As we celebrate King Klopp's 5th year anniversary as LFC manager, I would like all reds' supporters (Ed's included) on this great forum to pick THE game and of course victory where you said, "Ok, I think we are onto something with this guy".

I'll go first. For me, it was when we went to the Etihad and completely dismantled City 4-1 shortly after he arrived. Right there and then, I felt like we may have the manager who can get us going again. That was the day I started to believe in Klopp.

Your turn.

Probably the Dortmund match at home. On paper, that Dortmund team should have won the Europa League that year in my opinion.

The 2-2 draw against WBA.

3.) 10 Oct 2020 10:39:56
honestly, his first match vs spurs. you could see the impact straight away. we just didn't have the players or the fitness to implement his style effectively, but you could see the identity from day 1.

4.) 10 Oct 2020 19:41:12
Completely overlooked match on my part Faithinworks. Good one.

For me it was the opening day 4-3 win over arsenal as he started his first full season after his first transfer window. Mane came in for that full steam counter attacks, lallana and firmino were being used to initiate his press from the front. He started showing that he cared far more about hard working reliable team players by using Milner as LB ahead of Moreno.

We had no sight of benteke, balotelli, markovic or the other players he knew wouldn't give him 100%. That was the first team I felt klopp fielded in his own mould. We were devastating in attacking relentlessly and could blow teams away but still had vulnerable times at the back which saw us as entertaining to neutrals but still needing a few seasons to get to where we needed to consistently get results for an entire season.

Mane wonder goal, coutinho 30 yard cracker, lallana arriving late in box to score, they were 3 goals that would become common in our best attacking play and source of goals in klopps first full season. We went 4-1 up and then nearly lost 3 points by letting them back in it with defensive and goalkeeper errors.

We continued like this for 18 months to 2 years before klopp made those big changes with transfers that he realised were needed after 2 seasons where he couldn't challenge in English league over 38 games with that hectic football that he first put into action against arsenal in that crazy game. The previous season we were so far away from the team he wanted so I was impressed at how much we changed that summer.

He changed so much in how the team played despite only 2 or 3 signings in his first summer and I always remember that arsenal game as when I thought i was seeing liverpool play football in a way that was directly unique to klopp at the time. Milner he rathered in LB over Moreno, wijnaldum was an attacking midfielder getting goals behind the striker, klopp changed his role dramatically, he turned lallana into a central midfielder pressing high up and used in attack as AM getting into the box non stop.

Turned firmino into a central forward instead of playing behind attackers. Mane was used wide right in a 3 man attack despite playing a different role for Southampton. He changed so many players into new roles that we never saw them as playing previously and that game showed his ideas that we've seen plenty more of since in how he improves players by using them in New ways.

AOC became a CM from a winger, mane moved to left winger, Henderson changed to play advanced instead of defensive holder. Gomez established at CB instead of FB. Trent bought in from the academy and utilised RB despite being a midfield prospect. they're the traits that klopp has as a top manager and that was the first game it became clear how he would work in building his team.

What a pleasure to look back at how he's done his job in his 5 years of managing a football team from what he inherited to what he's built since.

This is for you, Ed01. Do you think the captain's armband affects VVD's game? I ask this cos he seems to have his worst performances for the most part, when he is capt. like vs Watford, Leeds for part of the game and vs Villa for example.

If he is struggling for form like he is doing now an trying to improve his game, doesn't having the armband become too heavy for him cos he has to take care of himself AND the rest of the team? Cheers, Ed.

Red Meister

{Ed001's Note - I just don't think he is a leader, he is far too laid back for it. I don't think it affects his game, I just don't think he is playing well at the moment.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 22:38:54
Thanks for the response, Ed01. I know he is not a natural leader and that is not his forte. He also strikes me as someone unable to play every game like he has something to prove which I find strange esp, judging by his history and how many doubted he would ever make it to this level.

Normally players like him with his background, often play with that chip on their shoulder always wanting to prove those who ever doubted him wrong.

Tom Brady till this day and in spite of his immense success in his career, STILL plays with that chip on his shoulder wanting to prove his initial doubters wrong at University of Michigan where they thought the then starting QB (John Navarre) was better than him. Prolly too late for that now regarding VVD.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 22:40:19
I agree Ed. Just my opinion, but I'd give the arm band to Robertson when Henderson and Milner aren't playing. Curious who any of you would give the arm band to.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 23:15:27
Yeah Robertson's a good shout man.

4.) 06 Oct 2020 02:59:53
Great shout Stone. I think he'd grow 2 inches. I love Robbo ya know. Still young tho. Salah could take the band. Best player in the world right now.

5.) 06 Oct 2020 08:42:50
Robbo is a good shout, IMO as well.



05 Oct 2020 08:20:03
Hi guys,

Terrible day at the office last night and to me, not one LFC player came out unscathed performance-wise. A 5-train train wreck of epic proportions, IMO. The worst perf. under Klopp since he has been here as far as effort, focus, desire and graft are concerned.

That said, a few things that need to be addressed.

The high line is too hig, IMO and teams are starting to figure it out. How? Simple. Barkley made two runs yesterday from deep while we played the offside and he was in one one one with Adrian and fluffed both efforts. That is how easy it is to figure that out. Not Rocket science, is it? If we press and cannot get the ball drop deeper into a shell and get back in defensive mode so as to unleash the press again from a position of defensive strength. Yesterday, we just pressed, Villa got out of it and the team was cut in half with defenders exposed with gaps opening all over the place. That needs to be fixed. If we have to drop 5/ 10 yards deep for now and the press needing to be better and more thought out then let us do that, cos both all over the place last night.

Also, why are we asking Adrian to do what we all know he simply can't and that is, play with his feet? He is terrible at it, end of. The mistake he made yesterday, he already made 3 times last season vs Saints and Atletico and it cost us goals. He seems to not be learning from prior mistakes so why not tell him to boot it up field cos we know he can do that and even Klopp gestured that way after the goal went in? Pretty simple stuff, IMO.

Last but not least and if I were Klopp, I would paste this result at the very entrance of the dressing room where every player looks at it every single day before training and make the players look at it every single time. This will serve as a reminder of what can happen when we are not at full pelt on all levels. This should serve as the team talk for the rest of the season. THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!

Finally at the end of the day, it is just one result on the face of it. Whether it is a trend will depend on how we react to it going forward and there is no better opportunity than the Derby to get the juices and adrenaline jacked up and full focus on the task so our boys should relish this opportunity to make amends. Everton are going to have to beat us some day so the onus is on them now. Parking the bus won't cut it All in all, Better to lose one game by 5 goals than to lose 5 games by 1 goal. YNWA!

Yes meister the team it seems has took the high line for granted and last night it was horribly exposed counting on the pace of our wing backs and gomez with the anticipation of virgil .
We have not seen klopp bring out his bag of tools for a while but after yesterday them tools need too be dug deep into . That performance was the worst of his managerial career never mind liverpool, certain players need dropping and new energy needs inserting as the rate in which the heads dropped was scary the whole ass fell out from beneath us . There a lot of mitigating factors at the minute that haven't been in our favour with injuries, cv19, fatigue so let's hope we can work through this .
I seem too remember a few seasons back chelsea had a bad start changed formation then ended up winning the league under conte, I know it won't happy.

Hello Ed01. This one is for you. I just listened to your latest podcast (The Ed who is a manc fan is a riot) and di I just hear you say that Timo Werner has issues with large crowd noises? And that Bayern used to crank up the noise whenever he played there to the point that he started having Vertigo and started vomiting on the pitch? Really?

Red Meister

{Ed001's Note - ken is great to be fair. He does have issues with loud noises causing vertigo and has had to wear ear plugs. What I said was when fans are back in you could imagine him struggling as it really affected him and he had to be taken off in one match.}

1.) 01 Oct 2020 23:19:00
I really think we dodged a bullet with werner. I prefer jota all day. Werner may be a better finisher (just) but jota has the better movement, intelligence and interplay (and pressing) and so fits our squad much better.

We've had a really good transfer window. The lb looks good, thiago looks world class and jota is easily the 4th best forward at the club (that might not sound great but at liverpool it's really v good)

Klopp is going nowhere. This is election time in Barcelona and a lot of stuff gets thrown out there to get the fans (the electorate) wound up. Nothing to see here.

Redman 1, Klopp may be keen on getting Thiago than getting a CB to be 4th choice cos the first choice option of D. Carlos ain't happening. Klopp may think that Thiago is more of a priority than getting a 4th choice CB cos all else fails Nat Phillips could be promoted to 4th choice. Just a thought.

Ed25,regardless of his weaknesses, Lovs walks into your team, based on his accomplishments of shutting down some of the best CF's on the planet in Ronaldo in the CL final, Aguero in the PL several times, shut down your own Lukaku in his sleep several times, and shut down every CF that came his way in the WC including the Golden Boy Harry Kane. Comparing Lovs to Michael Keane is a slap in the face of a CL and WC finalist and I have not even begun to mention his trophy cabinet. Just facts, man.

{Ed025's Note - well if he was that good RM why has he ben binned?, this fantastic player you have this world beater should surely be in before the hapless gomez or the crock matip, come on mate get a grip..

ifarachmadi, I read the same story on the Daily Mail and it is a nothing burger. Salah said he is just enjoying the moment as a PL champion when asked about LFC's targets for next season. Nothing to see here, man.

That's the spirit, lads. Time to toughen up, grow a spine, stand up and be counted and be ready to fight. Wallowing in self pity? A non starter.

Fully agree, Barry. It is time to get it together and gather all the forces at our disposals and support the club, the players and the fans. This is not the time for "We should have done this, that or the other in the TW". That time is GONE and playing hindsight geniuses ain't going to cut it so pls, ENUFF of that. It is time to stand up and be counted.

Fully agree, Ed. It is not an impossible task cos the title this season is SO wide open, it is crazy. Leicester who blast City on their patch suddenly, cannot score a goal. Spurs who pammed Utd the last time, get done by losing a 3 goal lead under Jose, something that would ever happen under him previously. This is going to b a wide-open season and it will come down to the team that can handle adversity better and make less mistakes, IMO.
