Eddy your comment about tippy tappy football made me smile, and reminded me how fickle football supported are.
January has been a bad month for the Reds but there wasn't too many complainer when the goals were flowing before Christmas.

is this the same Eddy Lloyd who thought the long ball was more than 10 yards :D :roll: :wink:

And as have said before, Liverpool are playing far too slow. Too many negative passes.
Southampton attacked at a far faster pace than Liverpooland deserved their win.
I said after the first ten minutes, that I had as much chance of playing at Wembley as Liverpool had, because they were
playing with the same pedestrian style that they had for the last few matches. I am starting to get worried about Klopp when he
says that they are playing well, but just not scoring.

I agree with Bill, it takes us about 10 passes just to get to the half way line, which gives the opposition plenty of time to pack 11 men in their half. Too slow.

The thing with Liverpool, they just need to play the ball at a higher pace.

They have so many touches and it just allows the opposition to get back into position. You're just not going be able to cut opposition open.
86% possession and no shots on target???

What a load of rubbish! :cry: :cry:

This week is the worst I can remember in my football watching life!!

IT was spoken about above - TOO MUCH MUCKING ABOUT PASSING THE BALL BACK AND FORTH!

The marking for Wolve's first goal was abysmal - the second goal was well taken - I do not think many teams would have prevented the second goal.

Whinge List: Karius, Wijnaldum, Lucas, Gomez, Firmino, Moreno and for most of the time he was on, Coutinho!

Good Luck Wolves in your next round - you deserved the win! :D

He brings on some of the top players to chase the game but they should have been on in the first place I am losing the respect for Kopp and his tactics as the ball is always going back and across the pitch and no penetration :(

I think Mane wants to get back and help Liverpool. He has just missed the penalty that puts Senegal out of the cup.

Do managers ever learn that it's not a good idea to disrespect the FA Cup?
It seems not.
Rafa famously came unstuck at Burnley!
Jurgen escaped the same fate at Exeter last season and against Plymouth.

We lose to Swansea to seriously dent any hopes of catching Chelski for the title.
We lose to Southampton so no EFL Cup.
One realistic chance of silverware in the FA cup so the strongest team should have been fielded in my humble opinion. Maybe Tuesday's encounter with Costa and co clouded his judgement?

Don't leave big guns on the bench - get 'em on and get a lead then rest them if possible.

Surely you start with your strongest team get the game won then take players off. We're always chasing the game, it's not rocket science.

It is no good having 80% possession if there is no progression. Passing back to your goalkeeper whilst in the other half is not good football

Ever since I started going to Anfield to watch the Reds in the early 60s, I paid my few shillings and then expected to see Lawrence, Lawler, Byrne .... Hunt, St John and so on.

Similar through the 70s. 80s and so on.

The only difference for me was to watch the games live on television because I did not live in Liverpool anymore. Instead of paying admission prices my sacrifice was to get up in the middle of the night to watch the game. (After watching TV or listening to the radio broadcast since 1966, I missed my first live game in 2014 when I was flying to England and the Reds played on Boxing Day and a few days later).

I thought you paid money, (or got up early!) to watch your best team play each week?

I wonder if the current Reds administration would allow supporters to buy cheaper tickets to watch a team full of inferior players line up against Man U, Chelsea etc?

I honestly believe the fans are being ripped off because they are paying top money to watch an inferior product.

What do you reckon?

Hi Phil, in my opinion, Liverpool have at least six mediocre players who would not get into any of the other top six teams in the premiership.
To name a few, Can, Origi, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Lucas, Flamino, and Wjnaldum.
Oops! I almost forgot the two goalkeepers.

I expect a few arguments, but tell me which team any of them would get in, and who they would replace.

Copied this from a Liverpool fan fb page.

DIDN’T need Mystic Meg to see that one coming, did it? Before a ball was kicked it was easy enough to know what to expect from Leicester City. All week their players have been thrown under the bus – fans, pundits, managers… take your pick. All were pointing the finger at them for the sacking of Claudio Ranieri.

Pitched as a pack of free BMW-driving Judases who turned on the man who made the impossible possible, there was always going to be a reaction – no team talk required. Everyone thinks you're scum of the earth, lads. You can't score, you can't win. Show them.

From our point of view then it should have been no surprise. A storm was coming. Weather it. Fight as much as they do. Battle as much as they do. Stay in it. Keep them out. Turn the crowd, plenty who still aren’t sure about the man who made their dreams come true getting sacked.

But no. First, Liverpool’s squad was shown up yet again – square pegs in round holes again, kids on the bench again.

For 10 minutes we rode our luck. Mignolet sharp, repelling Leicester on a couple of occasions. Then we got out. And on the only real occasion the Reds strung a few passes together, we were in their box causing problems but with only two corners to show for it.

It wasn’t a sign of things to come. Passes misplaced. Touches woeful. And every second ball won by a Leicester shirt. The first goal was so easy – an absolute present. Liverpool have been giving them out for a while. The second was a great finish but more evidence that the bite to win it was missing. No one in red, bar the keeper, was emerging with credit – dodgy at the back, poor communication, the midfield bypassed and the front three anonymous. Aimless crossing didn’t help. Again.

Second half, looking at a lost cause, the bare minimum was some belated battle. Some evidence of heart. There were bits. There were flashes. Then another easy goal for the opposition, a consolation clawed back. But nothing to get the blood pumping. Never any belief.

At some point, there needs to be a collective ‘f**k you’ at Liverpool – at every level, from every person involved. A ‘f**k this’ not a ‘ah well’. This week we’ve had Manchester United matching Liverpool’s trophy haul (and yes, I’m counting the European Super Cups, so flipping what). Tonight, we’ve had to endure Leicester fans, with Ranieri masks, hearses driving around outside, phone lights on, and whatever else they brought to the meff fest, singing about one of the best Scouse players to grace football not winning the league.

All this should sting. It should stir a deep fury, leaving you clenching fists and grinding teeth; keeping you awake at night. That’s what I want it to do to people involved at Liverpool. I want them to care. It matters to me and to you. Does it to them? Is there a driving, dogged 200 per cent every day commitment to making Liverpool great again?

That bench doesn’t say that. It’s great to target youth development and we all love to see it in action. But when it’s over-promotion, over-reliance? When it’s to the detriment of Liverpool’s chances of winning things? Well it doesn’t feel right, does it?

We know Klopp can squeeze the best out of a group and make them believe; that he can put fire in bellies. But he needs bellies on top of better feet. He needs more players that can carry out his philosophies to the letter but can also make a difference when it matters – boss a game, control a match, leave the opposition cowering in their wake week after week not now and then. Who are those players in this squad? There are some. But there aren’t enough. There aren’t options. Back ups. Reliable performers en masse.

It’s a good base, with good attributes. We’ve seen that. But it needs the topping. The stardust. The difference makers.

Liverpool will win more matches this season; they’ll lose them too. Probably too many. They’ll score goals, but they’ll concede. Probably too many.

Fingers need to be pulled out at home and abroad – purse strings loosened, perfect models ripped up. Show some balls. Show intent. And buy some f*****g good players. Because Liverpool don’t have enough of them.

Up the yet-another-helpful-hand-to-teams-when-they-needed-it-most Reds.

Just been looking into the end of season training experience for kids at both Liverpool and Everton and cant believe the prices and how they differ in terms of cost and time spent at each venue.

Liverpools is £150 for 2 hours
Evertons is £80 for 4.5 hours

Been a great weekend of "bests ofs" Bern.

Anthony Joshua, one of the best heavyweight fights I have seen.
Emre Can, one of the best goals this season if not ever.
Mark Selby, A great champion and one of the best comebacks.
John Higgins, humble in defeat and back at world number 2 at 41.

All in my humble opinion of course.

Another home disappointment but thanks to Arsenal it turned out not too bad.
Klopp is very personable and obviously a great coach but his tactics baffle me.
Why not play,or bring on earlier his two most gifted attacking players in Lallana & Sturridge ?
He hasn't yet fathomed a way to beat deep playing or packed defence opposition.
Lacking a creative midfielder, goal scorer and dominant centre back.
Another cheque book Summer but he needs to weigh a few in first. :? Ken

With any luck, the Arsenal result could be our get out of jail free card - although given our ability to make life difficult I'm not optimistic about facing the Hammers next week.
