I only just found out Burton were a championship side, this is testament to the quality of our performance because we truly made them look like a conference side. The only negatives were the injuries to Can an Origi, who I hope will be fit for the Spurs match. Origi looked dangerous, Firmino was his usual great self, popping up with a goal too. Matip looked assured on the ball, always looked to pass forward and communicated well with the players around him to help them get in position. Mane was something else and if he carries on this current trajectory he will definitely be our signing of the season. Klopp learned from the mistakes of the Burnley match and we kept a clean sheet, which is never a bad thing.

Genuinely think the team we have out could be our strongest, bar Karius. Matip and klavan I haven't seen enough of to judge, but you'd like to think he was bought to be first choice. Origi offers something different, and I think he's our most consistently dangerous striker, and can is back! I think Sturridges days may be numbered, he's our best goalscorer but I think he's lost his pace, almost played like a false nine vs Burnley when we really needed someone to get a goal in the box. Origi will run channels but will be in the box for crosses and runs in behind. We should smash them if we get up for it, something tells me we might not though.

What does everyone think the team should be tonight, I'd like to see Matip get a game if his fitness allows along with Grugic. Maybe Sturridge and Origi up top together as well. Even though it's only burton I don't want us to just play the kids, this is a good opportunity to regain some confidence and keep the first clean sheet of the season. We don't need to rest players yet so bar the likes of Stewart and Ojo who will be part of most match day squads I don't see the point in playing the likes of Randall or Chiravella just yet. Let's hope for a solid win today!

Y is Grujic not even on the bench? Is he injured?

Massive, massive mistake if Klopp let's Sakho go out on loan, unless he is going to replace him, if not then he has lost the plot.

Could the news of Sakho going out on loan be a clever ploy by Klopp to get Sakho to pull his socks up and regain his place?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is simply a case that they cannot sell him.}

Sakho a possible loan option? I would consider him to be a better defender than most at LFC.

I think we all need to calm down over the Burnely result. Yes, we didn't play well, but we need to realise that we have a great manager in Klopp, the best manager we have had in a very long time and we need to give him the time in order to achieve success. Of course as fans we have every right to critique our manager (if he makes the wrong decisions, etc) and our players but I don't feel it helps if we push the team into a corner after a loss. Indeed, Liverpool football club will loose football matches this season as well as win many football matches, but the insane knee jerk reaction post match don't usually contribute to anything. Loosing to Burnley understandably makes fans upset, with me included, but I trust out manager to drill into the players and coach them not to make these mistakes again - and if they are simply not good enough to play for us then hopefully dip into the transfer market.

I think a lot of the fans need to calm down, I would much rather loose to Burnley and learn from out mistakes early on in the season and push on and get good results elsewhere in the league. We're far from perfect and I think most of us understand that, but we're a decent team and we need to support our club whether we win or loose and try not to come to rash, knee jerk reactions after a loss.

Regardless, I'm really looking forward to the season and even the years ahead because I'm positive that we are in for something special.

To say I am mystified is an understatement, with the news that Kloppp wants rid of Sakho. Sakho is by far our best centre back at the club and just because of some behaviour issues in America he wants to get rid off him with no replacement lined up, which leaves us with Klavan who is still finding his feet in a new team, system, and league. Lovren who is a woeful defender. Gomez is inexperienced and coming back from an acl injury. Matip is decent. We've conceded 5 goals in two matches already with our appalling defence. Top 4 will be a miracle if Sakho leaves.

Tony Barrett has said Sakho likely to go out on loan. The more I think about our defense it gets worse. We have know back up at RB for Clyne. Milner/ Moreno aa LB options and just 4 centre backs. It feels like our squad or defence is very thin on the ground now.

When there was news Klopp signed for us, it seemed like 80% of our fans touched themselves. He stirred the whole fan base and gave lot of wonderful moments including two finals within 10 months.
Now into the new season we lost one out of first two games, the other one being a away win at Arsenal which happened only once or twice in last 25 years or so, and it feels like 80% of those fans are already starting to doubt him and judging him as stubborn and bla bla bla.

I mean, Seriously?! Our fanbase is seems to be getting worse and worse with jealousy and greed for success. and yes! . not hungry but greedy for success.

One of these days we will seriously turn into most whining fans in the world.

I feel we should learn to support better. This whining gives nothing but useless pain to ourselves. Getting hurt after a loss is normal, but when you whine about it all the time and keep reminding about it to others too, there is something wrong about it.

Strongest team (when fit) . Not only looks a good starting 11 but bench / squad is healthy!


Clyne. Matip. Sakho. Gomez

Henderson. Emre Can

Mane. Coutinho


Manninger. Lovren. Milner. Grujic. Lallana. Winjaldum. Origi.

I am no football expert and doesn't want to start the day with negativity but truth are truth aren't they?
Klopp reminds me of Brendan, relying heavily on individual brilliance and no collective plan. The High pressing has been put aside and I don't know Y. His subs doesn't make any impact what so ever. I am not taking any pride in reaching the finals at League cup ( City were absolutely poor and we lost it ) and EL final ( Sevilla made us looks so average ) .
Klopp is a lovely person being very honest. He brings the supported closer to the game and brings that enthusiasm and post obits across. His touch line celebrations and passion gives goosebumps. His funny interviews put a smile on our face.
But tactically he is poor.
Coutinho the player saved us against Arsenal after such a terrible first half with no substitution, The little man just took the game on his own and the results were evident. At 4-1 Klopp showed his naivety.

Klopp and Brendan both likes attacking midfielders, Both believe more attackers wins you game, The former wants everyone to attack and later likes to pass till death. In between both has no balance to the squad.
Both guilty of shoning players outside thier comfort zone. Both stubborn ( No chance of signing a player after its evident we need a LB )

I love Klopp and would always support my team But I do have an opinion of the game and my perception.

We set up wrong team in the first place and then expect one of the star names to show up.

We will never do a Leicester because they always had a plan unlike us. They never believed in outscoring a team. If they want to sit deep they do sit deep, if they wish to attack they go all out attack. We don't do that.

We don't need any more signings. We need brains and solutions.

Thanks for posting

liverpool looks better without sturridge playing away from home, the other thing he doesn't defend from the front something firmino do. For me I am Origi and seeing someone from injury coming straight into the team I will be looking for a move away imo.

i feel playing 2 upfront ( origi/ ings and studger/ firmino) against lesser oppositions atleast who we know will defend deep shall help our cause. ( obviously defending better would help our cause even more but that is a bigger problem and i don't see that being solved atleast till mid season)
As was with burnley we hardly had a body in the opposition box when it mattered
We have always played well with two strikers upfront. Well burnley did us in with two strikers.

Ok, the disapointment from Saturdays game is all but over for me now.
And I can start to see more clearly. We did play fairly well. 2 "mistakes" cost us the game.
Still a little disapointed that we couldn't score even 1 goal.
But onto other things. 2013/ 14 was probably the best football I've seen us play.
There's glimpses of that game now as well.
And if I had a choice of finishing 2nd (getting Champions league football), or wining the league with boring football, to be honest I can't say for sure what I would choose (my heart says 2nd and best football ever) .
If you ask me now, top 4 and good flowing attacking football, or "buying the league", or boring football, I would choose top 4 finish with the way we play.
For us to eventually win the league, we may need to become big spenders (and we not, 35mil is not high in football anymore when you have players going for 100mil) .
But would that feel right? No!
At that point, if we do get there, I would block out fees paid for players and wages etc.
I still feel we can achieve top 4 this season.
We may even have a good run, and we'll all believe we can win the league.
But I do know this, we will all definitely enjoy the ride. The 2-0 losses will hurt, but the 4-3 wins will make us smile through the pain.

Its sad to see the amount of negativity on here after our first loss. If the bubble of enthusiasm has popped this early on then it was pretty fragile in the first place. i'm sure we will smash the Spuds this weekend and we will all be talking about the treble.
Regardless, i don't think there's any doubt that this is the season where we see how good a manager Klopp is. His first season had highs and lows having to use Rogers players and in a foreign league and i personally think it was a respectable, if ultimately unsuccessful first year.
He has now had two transfer windows; a preseason (slightly disrupted by Euros and Olympics) ; plenty of time to get his ideas and philosophy across, and almost a full year of experience in the Prem League. In addition, there's the advantage of no mid-week European matches.
Anything less than 4th should be seen as failure imo regardless of the other teams. I fully believe that Klopp is the right man to bring success to LFC but there should be no excuses if he under-delivers this season.
