Six points from Stoke and WBA........points in the bag rather than games in hand all day long.

what a classy touch from Dortmund and it's fans - in the midst of it's own turmoil, it thinks of others.

Warms the soul to see such thoughtfulness and kindness.

Stoke 1 Liverpool 2

came from a goal down, to get out of jail.

useless defending at times.

Winaldum dropped another clanger - almost gave Stoke a second.

Klopp has a lot of work to do this summer.  And I hope he doesn't see his problems as offensive.  Apart from Matip, we pretty much need a whole new defence.

Two points thrown away.

Two awful goals conceded.

Was Klavan having a nap?  Why didn't he stop the guy turning and getting his shot off.

Awful defending.  I suspect he is, at best, a squad player.  Perhaps an upgrade will happen in the summer.

Klopp's team can only attack with heavy metal football.  It cannot defend.  It cannot see games out.  Same old, same old.

a very good weekend for Liverpool

We beat Everton, Chelsea lost, and United drew.

and Arsenal and City will take points off each other today.

Mind you, I thought Everton were woeful, and we were not an awful lot better.

We are still not competing for the ball, or committing to the tackle.  Against lower teams, if nothing changes, we will continue to flounder.

what do you expect.

United's annual turnover is around 500 million.....Liverpool's is around 300 million.

Laughing at the news we're competing with Man Utd to sign Jose Gimenez.........like we have the ambition to get that type of proven top class player.

We'll offer him around 2/3rds of what man utd will offer and wonder what went wrong.

Sometimes I wonder if he thinks he's better than he really is.

good point.

Tes, it's the fact that he plays for the German national team, that always makes me pause and reconsider my view of Emre Can. 

Like, how could he be a regular for Germany, one of the world's best national teams, and yet be so poor looking a player for us.

He must have something about him.  Personally, I don't see it. 

He is a central midfielder i.e. he cannot play wide.   But he is neither a defensive nor an attacking midfielder.  So what use is he to any team.  He doesn't excel in any role.

He needs to be backed in the transfer market and he'll get what you are seeking.

If had been given the left back he wanted then we'd have been more balanced.

But he needs backing in the transfer market. He can only teach old dogs so many tricks because no matter how much you try and polish a turd, at the end of the day a turd will always be a turd.

If we refuse to sign his No.1 target players then he can only do so much.

I was worried about his legacy because he can walk into any job in the world but he chose us.

But as this club are so inept he is frankly our last hope of ever doing anything

I partly wished he went to the mancs or Barcelona or real or Bayern so his talent would match the success he'd have their.

P.S. I also have to laugh at Dude saying we were ever balanced with Rafa as manager. We were totally negative team 'sh it on a stick football' was what it was called.

I have not read as much tripe for a long while.

You keep going on about FSG needing to back our manager in the transfer market.  But Jurgen has repeatedly said that he has their full backing, and has never once been turned down when it comes to money and bringing new players in.

So stop telling porkies.   

Contrast that with the bloke you wanted sacked - Rafa Benitez.  In Rafa's last two seasons, he had very little funds to work with.  Indeed, in his last summer, he had a net spend of a mere ten thousand pounds. 

Jurgen needs to start from the back, and establish a good defence. 

I don't think I have ever seen a weaker spine in a Liverpool team, in my entire lifetime.

Our inability to compete and beat the lesser sides, is an embarrassment.

Worship money and are bankrupt when it comes to their knowledge, understanding and even care, about football.
Fans aren't ever even an afterthought. They hype their 'product' and actually believe that the hype is reality.

absolutely.

And that's the thing about it - I have lived abroad for many years, and I just do not get the appeal of the Premiership, relative to other leagues.  The technical quality in Italy, Spain and Germany is superior.  The natural abilities of players in south america is far superior.

The premiership is a well marketed brand......scratch below the surface, and it is pretty ordinary fare.
