    Who else to blame but FSG? Little to zero investment over the years.. buy to sell Yank mentality.. playing heavy metal Jurgen football for three years straight without any proper reinforcement, is begging for failure... Two trophies in like 10 years... Objectively worst owners we ever had on the pitch, surely.

    All of you people slagging Liverpool of right now just keep it coming yes they have had a bad season that is for sure and they will right of the league but believe me they will be back to recapture what was theirs last year and they will be a very wounded animal so keep it coming any team in the world would miss the best central pairing any team would not making any excuses they have been bad this year but they will be back to show you sort minded people why they were worthy champions and congratulations to Everton because it will be last and only time you win at anfield in a long time and any other team for that matter

  • Gary

    The present Liverpool team has 2 good players , Salah and Mane . All their success was down to the forwards and their system . The ball is pumped long into space for their speedy attackers to run on to . Teams now sit deep and they struggle to break teams down . Their midfield is all about pressing and turnover ball . Opponents just aren't giving them the space to run into . A rebuild and new system is needed .

    For once, I have to agree with Souness. Most of the time he talks tripe though. The first goal was the epitome of Liverpool's failings. No challenge for the headers, James allowed to control the ball under no pressure and then make a pass without anyone hurrying, pressing or putting a tackle in. I almost feel like that it would've been better for Liverpool if they played younger centre backs, than making experienced midfielders fill in whilst the likes of Gomez, Virgil and matip have been out. Around a year ago, they were almost impossible to dominate the midfield again. Saying that, injuries have maybe sped up the end of this first cycle under klopp. They do play like their bellies are full. Sad because I really thought they were going to dominate for a few seasons.

  • TopShottaz

    Sky please retire this clown souness, time to bring in some young guns

  • cheetah8667

    Klopp needs to follow what Pep does in purchasing players from La Liga who are technically very good, all of Klopp purchases of players from Bundesliga have flopped massively, stop obsessing over running more then the opposition and waiting for them to tire out, make the team technically better instead which is what is needed for EPL dominance, let the opposition do the running, while your players pass and move with intelligence, the passing and movement of these current players is very poor, this is not what pro footballers should be doing, no excuses for not being able to make simple passes as pro footballers especially those players regarded as being world class in this LFC side, also aerially in Midfield and upfront the team is very very poor, height is needed badly especially upfront to make full use of Trent and Robo crosses.

      @Mr Penalty Everton were without there best Centre back, central midfielder and DCL was on the bench? So EFC hadn't got a full strength team either. Same with Man City, they were missing at least 3 players when they trashed you. Any complaints from them??

    • Mr Penalty

      @Gareth M yes VVD and Hendo in the middle with Fab was the reason We are in this mess.

    • Gareth M
      Gareth M

      Absolute nonsence. Are you saying liverpool would never have lost these games if they had VVD? That team won the league a few months ago and are former European champions. They are all serial winners. If it was any other team in this position, I think the media would be coming down alot harder in criticising them and Klopp. Using the VVD injury is a smokescreen for the real issue in that Klopp has no plan B for his team. He should be able to adapt and overcome the absence of key players through a system that suits the players he has. By persisting with the only system he knows using poor players. Example is that by playing his midfield in defence he is making a bad situation worse. But.... The red nose media give them a pass and want us to feel sorry for them. Sorry but everyone is see through all these pundits arguments and LFC's self pity but no one in the media wants to discuss it. Roy Keane was absolutely spot with what he said about LFC being bad champions and there constant excuses

    Liverpool haven't had a decent defense for years and Klopp has done little to nothing about it. Their only real defense has been their attack, with other teams forced to focus their attention on the likes of Salah.

    It’s still not too late but Liverpool have to find a different way to play. All the goals Liverpool conceded so far is bcs they get caught on the break bcs of the highline with which they play. The highline works only with VVD in defence and Fab and Hendo in midfield. Just play with any system but not the 4-3-3 with a high line with which they normally play.

  • Kreig Rastalovich

    There's many uncharacteristic mistakes being made all over the Liverpool side, and it's been happening since before Christmas. There's part of me that thinks he should keep Thiago out of the next couple of games, I've seen his mistakes and they're in the center of the park. But then there's Trent's form, it's been poor all season - defensively, the fullback area I think other teams have done their homework but even so, he was touted as worldclass. Virgil hasn't helped, but you'd think it would mean conceding an extra goal whilst still scoring 2 or 3. Something really up with the players I feel and Klopp is struggling to rationalise it. If this was Chelsea, or Man Utd, I'd fear for his job - same with JM at Spurs, if he was at those two clubs, he'd be sacked.

    You can go on all day about the problems at Liverpool but my concern has always been the bench when they have a fully fit team and a front player gets injured who do you bring on to get you goals shaq no origi no ox no who’s left no one the only one you had has been loaned out compare that to city’s bench doesn’t make sense to me

      @Stu Don i dont think it was klopp being arrogant , i think his hands are tied by fsg , a pandemic is on , be a bit crazy going out buying top players putting them on top wages , when you dont know what the future holds , running a club isnt cheap when you already have big wages to pay and staff , fsg are a sporting franchise , a pandemic is on where is the money coming in from when stadiums are closed ? city have oil money of course they can buy , oil is a major commodity in the world even during a pandemic , so money is still filtering into their bank accounts at a large rate

      @mark capel Klopp was too arrogant in the summer window. We should have gone out and bought some proper players to strengthen the squad (the same way City do, and Utd used to do when they were the tits). But he thought we'd go another season without injuries and we'd be good enough. Face it. We had a lot of luck injury wise for those 2 seasons. We made the most of it and got the silverware, but Klopp missed the chance to make us a powerhouse.

    The main excuse is 'injuries' ...... but there are other issues. Teams may have learnt how to deal with LFC. For sure, every team misses the crowd - but perhaps LFC most of all. Klopp appears unable to change structure of 433. Bobby F, although we all admire him, is no longer earning his position - we need a 'fighting' striker.

    There is no God given right to the title. I remember Andy Robertson saying they intended to defend it at the beginning of the season and to be fair, with Jota in the team they were looking pretty good early on.If you don't focus on any one player and look for movement in the midfield as the defense bring the ball up, it doesn't seem to be happening and link up from mid to attack seems to be broken. They aren't overwhelming the opposition with simultaneous attacking threats and everything looked very deliberate. Everton managed to both press high and do it well and also pack the last third when Liverpool did get up there. Thiago seems like Liverpool's Xhaka at the moment. Apparently he is a good player but I have never watched Bayern so I don't know how he is supposed to be good.

  • Marty

    99% of Liverpool fans see the bigger picture. Any team losing VVD, Gomez, Matip, Fabinho and now Henderson ( 5 first choice centre backs) at various stages of the season would struggle to cope like the reds are. The whole shape of the team has been compromised leading to inevitable inconsistency. Add on all the other injuries and its understandable. Sadly we will have to get on with it and regroup pre season because this season looks dead and buried. The rmighty reds will be back. YNWA !!

    • Marty

      @ckjb macamenny highly unlikely with our centre back issues. Imagine Mbappe and the likes against our makeshift pairing 🙈 As you said with a full strength squad again and a couple of new faces next season we go again.

      @Marty exactly my point, great on the ball but..........

    • Marty

      @ckjb macamennybecause the likes of Fabinho, Milner and Keita have missed a huge part of the season. Add to that the fact that Fabinho has had to fill in at the back hindering our pressing game. Thiago is a player not a tackler.

  • Anfieldtheplacetobe

    Now it the time to support the team! Klopp is going to make drastic changes to the team in the summer i would guess. Lets not forget the previuos 3 years, and what Klopp and Linjders have done👍🏽 Gini, Chamberlain, Keita, Origi, Shaquiri will go and be replaced! I'm guessing Harvey Elliot is going to be a regular in the squad! Curtis Jones Will be much better and so on! Look on the positive side😎
