    its terrible to see how they have failed to see Ginis play and how it is impacting our game.. he had 1 successful tackle in last 16 games...and because of this the game is more open to the opponents.. the main reason is his head is in barca already.. Cant wait for him leave this club. Greatest fraud of Liverpool this season.

    Thiago needs to go back to bayern this ain't looking good

  • Aaron

    Good grief, the problem isn't Thiago, it's that Fabinho was deputizing at the back (until getting injured) and Henderson was, too (until getting injured). You've got a draft horse in Wijnaldum who is a bit of a jack of all trades and Jones who's a prospect nowhere near first-team level paired with Thiago right now. You've got two of the front three (Mane and Firmino) who are clearly jaded, unable to control the ball most of the time, not making runs in behind, so not much to pass to up top. Thiago cannot be judged when half of the regular starters are on the recovery table.

  • Simon

    I think because he came to Liverpool naturally their fans were having a huge wankfest over a player that was never ever first on any Munich team sheet. All these scousers and plastics ones said he’s this he’s that he’s so special! Well funny enough Gundo for Man City is doing what they said Thiago would at Liverpool lol. 🤭😂

      @Niranjan Rajesh Don't compare Havertz with Thiago....comparing a Champions league winner with someone who's never seen a winners medal makes you seem like a troll

    • Ardi O'Riordan
      Ardi O'Riordan

      @SFAAPK7 have you watched the games though? Vs city Gini took the ball past 4 players slowed down and played a sideways pass to Salah which killed the attack, and that’s just one example. He used to be a great player but just think his head’s not in it right now with the contract situation. I’m happy with him in the 6 though, he’s been good there just not in the 8. Put Hendo back in midfield next to Thiago with Gini behind them and I think you see the best of all 3 again

    • SFAAPK7

      @Ardi O'Riordan I just disagree with you. Liverpool fans are always trying to make gini and milner scapegoats because they won't dare to criticise thiago. The whole team including thiago are slowing down play, not singling out those two. Thiago isn't always trying to play it quick. It isn't all his fault of course not but he isn't offering anything different as of now.

    • Ardi O'Riordan
      Ardi O'Riordan

      @Niranjan Rajesh I feel you on the defensive side he can be a bit reckless but that’s never been his game anyway, he’s been decent most games and I think the issues are more wijnaldum and Milner slowing it down Thiago’s actually the only one playing it quickly despite what twitter wants you to believe 😂 also add in a drop off in form from Mané, Firmino and Trent. Only people playing well are Salah and Robertson

    • Niranjan Rajesh
      Niranjan Rajesh

      @Ardi O'Riordan but hes not playing well. Im a chelsea fan and i watch liverpool matches,and he offers very little. Hes reckless,and he rarely offers good passes. I think ive seen a half a dozen very good passes by him in this season,thats all. Hes been very poor,just like chelseas bundesliga hauls

  • M .B

    Thiago is not overrated nor underrated, he simply doesn’t fit in the Liverpool team. The fast paced football and style of play klopp has is ruined by Thiago’s lingering on the ball. He would’ve worked better under pep

    Thiago looked class when he first played strugglin defensively now cos he hasn’t got henderson keita or fabinho next to him. But he still has a lot of the ball and pulls a lot of the strings and tempo

  • Curtis Allen
    Curtis Allen

    It baffles me that this false narrative of Thiago slowing the play down has caught on. He has issues: he gives too many fouls away in the middle of the park, and he isn't fast enough to cover the ground the way Gini or Hendo does. But it is an absolute myth that he slows down the play. He has the best pass forward to ball retention ratio in the league. He passes with crispness and quick thinking. Liverpool's play has slowed down, but it is down to other factors. The main one being a drop off in the intensity of the press, probably because Klopp is trying to keep the remaining players injury free. Liverpool are having to break teams down while in possession, whereas last season most goals came from winning the ball back in the press and countering quickly before they could get into shape.

    • sammy

      @Dhawal Varkhedkar he can work in a 4-3-3 with fabinho CDM Henderson cm and him cm so the other 2 take up the brunt of the defensive responsibility and he can freely roam

    • Dhawal Varkhedkar

    • A C
      A C

      @Stephen Koshy but he isnt even that right now, and playing in a deeper role means that he needs to get tackles in, and for some reason he tackles like he is 5-0 down in fifa. He doesnt tactically suit liverpool, so either he needs to adapt to liverpools system or they need to change the system

      Tbf what he said about thiago is true. He don’t suit your system. Bare touches on the ball + plus he’s got no legs in your normally very energetic midfield. If he played at Man City you’d see a decent player , probably similar level to him at Bayern but it’s blatantly obvious he don’t suit your team. Take the L, it doesn’t make him a bad player.

  • Audacity

    In Tiagos case, the problem is two of our defensive midfielders have been playing as centre backs. Thiago is not going to be pushing players around making big tackles and interceptions in the middle of the park like Hendo or Fabinho, that’s not his game. He’s creative and needs someone sturdy behind him to fill in the gaps. That, together with our forwards being less clinical in front of goal, our fullbacks being tracked far better than they ever have been and the defensive/counter attacking style tactics used by our opponents are why we have hit a run of poor form.

  • Bailey McGregor
    Bailey McGregor

    Thiago was brought in to play in front of van Dijk, not henderson. If you have the full first team fit he doesn’t have to do the same amount of defensive work because you have fabinho, henderson in the midfield and actual centre backs in defense. The whole team has been poor except Salah yet thiago is the one who is blamed?

    The issue is with Thiago he’s come into a team who’ve been playing poorly and are low on confidence it’s going to affect him. Secondly you put in Fabinho and hendo in that midfield and give him the protection he needs and he flourishes. The reason he’s a defensive liability atm is because he’s being asked to play as a lonesome number 6 recently where as at Bayern he had Kimmich next to him so he wasn’t doing it by himself also judge him when we have our best team back and are playing our best stuff. Don’t judge a player at there worst.

    Thiago is a playmaker not a B2B midfielder, a role which he’s playing atm. He needs a defensive partner alongside him. Once Fab is back in that holding role and Hendo in the B2B role you’ll finally see the REAL THIAGO.

      @Palash Rawat Playmakers don't necessarily score a ton of goals. His passes cut through several defensive lines at once and his constant quick ticking over of the ball forces opponents to run themselves into the ground chasing shadows. That's what he brings.

    Just like most players from Europe they can't adapt to the Prem. Chunkz is right the bundesliga& La ligastyle of the play is 4 5 touches before they release the ball. Sancho would take a while to adapt to the prem if he ever came.
