I always took the penalties for the team I played for.

There is no divine right to score. 

Milner didn't miss his penalty. The keeper made a good save.

Milner would be my penalty taker.

Salah, Firmino and Milner have all missed pens this season!

Maybe it's time the Captain took them!

Whoever takes them needs to borrow Klopp's magic trainers to take them in.

I know Karius kept a clean sheet last time out against Maribor, but with the defence looking slightly less shaky against Huddersfield, then surely a bit of stability and continuity would be helpful bu keeping Mignolet in goal on Wednesday.
A second clean sheet and few goals to strengthen our goal difference could be another small step in the right direction, and at the moment even small steps are seeming to take on greater significance.

stability, especially in defence, has always been key to a successful side.

klopp's chopping and changing is stupid.

he must have made some pre season agreement with our second and third keepers, to give Ward our league cup games (err, game)......and Karius our Champions League games.  Maybe after group stages, klopp opts to use our number one keeper.

As you say, continuity would be nice against Maribor.

I saw Klopp having a few jabs at the Anfield faithful.....seemingly annoyed at the atmosphere in the first half v Huddersfield.  The supporters aren't stupid.  The jury, at best, is out re Klopp being fit to put together a balanced side.

I'd like to see Oxlade-Chamberlain given a full game on Wednesday. Possibly keep Wijnaldum in seeing as it's a home game and see if he can add to his Huddersfield goal.

So then who out of Milner, Grujic, Hendo and Can (in order of preference). I'd like to see what Grujic could do especially as neither Hendo and especially Can have exactly put many trees in danger so far this season. Then again, the same can also be said of Wijnaldum.

Surely Robertson gets a full game if only to give our first choice ( :'() left back a rest, seeing as it looks like it's his spot to lose this season and Klopp needs to pace players with the manic December/January schedule not that far off.

Exactly. Why try mending what's not broken.

West Ham (away) and Southampton (home) will provide us with a sterner test of the defence than Huddersfield did.

A well worked ruse. Lovren gets selected to play, looking like the manager is backing his player, only to be taken out of the firing line at the last minute with a muscle injury warming up. Now he can safely put a few games distance between the Spurs game as he 'recovers from injury' ;D

 ;D

the politics of it all.

like I mean, who gets injured in the warm up.

Ultimately an easy victory.

But Milner is our penalty taker.  He needs to be taking them (or Hendo).

We can't be letting anyone grab the ball.

Overall good performance.  And we will get better as senior players return from injury.

But time will tell as to whether Klopp is any use at finding a balanced side.  I suspect not.

Good to see Sturridge get a goal, and the quality of his finish. If he can manage it, it would be good to see him given 60 minutes against Maribor on Wednesday.

Likewise to see Gomez start at centre half.

Hopefully yesterday's result will have a greater effect than the 7-0 against Maribor did.

Time hardly seems to be yielding improvement, in fact quite the opposite.

How much longer will players be given 'to get it'?

Klopp may only have been here for two years, but with our defensive problems being much longer standing than that, it's very difficult to keep re-setting the patience button every time there's a new manager or new approach starting.
