Spot on BH.
Too many off the boil, Firmino, Salah, Robbo but a win is a win.

Klopp has given Keita more than a fair crack at claiming a start.
We saw glimpses before his last injury but personally I don’t think he’s strong enough for the Prem.
With Milner getting on and Lallana likely moving on he needs cover in midfield . How about Grealish of Villa ?
It’s time for him to take a step up .

Couldn't agree more Ken. There is just no creativity at all from midfield. I posted the following last March


"I'd take a chance on Jack Grealish from A. Villa. He's got excellent vision and ball control, and works from box to box for 90 mins. He is not afraid to tackle unlike a couple I could name in Liverpool's team. He also scores goals and sees a good pass when needed. I know he has had a few problems off the field in the past, but I think he would be well worth a punt."

Once the title is won I would like to see Klopp experiment a bit. I would like to see him try Neco Williams at full back, and move TAA into midfield where he might bring some creativity with his range of passing. Also give Curtis Jones a few games.

Also the Japanese lad, Minamino .
I also hope Salah doesn't go to the Olympics as an overage player, he looks like he could use a break. K

I forgot about Minamino :oops: . I agree about Salah, I think he has been poor for a couple of months now. He seems to think he is Lionel Messi and tries to dribble too much.

Biil, Just reading that Grealish has a comparatively modest release fee, just £45 million .
United are said to be interested but at that price I imagine most top clubs will be looking, Hope we are.

According to the gossip page, Real Madrid are going to bid £126m for Salah :shock: I would snatch their hands off and use the cash to buy Traore of Wolves or Jayden Sancho from Bayern.

Very good financial results announced today so no need to sell Mo, Bill.
Not sure about Traore, he’s very quick and strong but a bit hit and miss for me. Sancho, yes.
Prefer the earlier discussed Grealish though.
Lallana, Lovren will leave for sure, maybe Shaqiri too so the wage bill will have scope for an arrival.

As you can probably guess Ken, I am not Salah’s biggest fan.

Well he's certainly not at his best Bill but for me he still has enough credit in the bank from his earlier success.
A bit of a one trick pony and defenders have worked him out but he's still our leading goalscorer. K

Which means a win for the Reds today takes the Foxes out of mathematical possibility of the title.

A draw and they can still technically do us on goal difference.

Back home after a few days in Exeter. Hopefully postings will work from up here.

A dreadful first half performance. Everything lately is so slow and laboured that opposition defences have all the time in the world to get everyone back behind the ball. Here’s hoping for a better second half.

Dear me. Who would have thunked it. 3-0 Watford so far. Has the bubble burst. Time to get rid of Klopp. :wink:
Home of the "Edmonton Oilers" Future Stanley Cup Champions. :D
A long way from Duncan B.C. :wink:

Oops, Banana skin from a team in yellow.
Shocking, no positives, no player deserves their wages.

An absolutely appalling performance, by far the worst I have seen from ANY team this year.
The front three need resting. Why when they needed something different did Klopp bring Origi on :? If I were Curtis Jones I would be considering asking for a move.

All the criticisms we given Hendo over the years but since he's been out we've been dire.
Need him back pronto.

Let's hope they get back on track Ken. I'd like to see a full team out tomorrow but not holding any breath.

I’m the opposite, I would like to see a couple of the young lads brought in. Curtis Jones, Nico Williams or Pedro Chirivella. They can’t play much worse and Chelsea wouldn’t know what to expect from them.
