We have lost 18 points to teams that are struggling to get a point every week, it does not take a football genius to rectify this, all I want as a supporter, is to see this rectified or signs of great improvement in this season, I am not too concerned about top 4 or for that matter top 6, we should be really naive to expect success in England and Europe with the current squad whose inability to adapt tactically when the chips are down is dreadfully evident.
Last season we had issues with set pieces and goal keeper, was it solved this season, a BIG ***** NO, we have only upgraded our issues, now teams can counter us and score a goal or two more compare to last season. Why did we stick with Sturridge, A Moreno, Lucas Lieva, Simon Mignolet .What was Gruijic transfer all about? the kid shifted from Serbia to England, that’s all he did and stayed injured through out the season. Injuries were a concern last season and it still is with lesser fixtures and more rest.
Except adding Mane to the attack, what have we done, absolutely nothing, I know Adam Lallana, Henderson , Gini W are playing really well, but they can only take us this far with our attack less creative against teams who like to play deep in their own halves.
Roberto Firminho is missing from a long time now, you might say why can’t we play Origi, trust me klopp has already tried, Origi looses the ball quite often and he is not as good as Firminho when it comes to winning the ball, although he is a great finisher compare to Firminho.
The puzzle can be solved, although it should have been solved in the summer window, the reason why it did not happen is because Klopp trusted his style of play and the existing squad way too much. FSG only looks at the balance sheet, for them LFC is just a big shop at the FENWAY SPORTS GROUP, as far as they are concerned it’s a smooth sailing, don’t expect them to be even remotely passionate about the game like supporters, they are business men and they are trained to keep calm and carry on without loosing a cent.
There has to be a tactical and personnel change if we were to find any kind of success in a season, will FSG, Klopp and most importantly the players realize this. I hate to say this but we have to wait till the next season, we just wasted a season, where United and City dropped points, Chelsea took full advantage of it and we did not.
