    You're a bit ****, aren't you?
    Yea and while it sounds harsh, I blame Benteke. We had a bit of bad luck and bad defending but not been able to create anything upfront and every half chance has been like 20 yards too high.

    If Sturridge plays against Stoke, we'll probably batter them like 4-0 to prove my point.

    Wonder Villa give us 20-30mil for Benteke? :awesome:

    Critisising Klopp is stupid, he's still stuck with the dross Rodgers bought him.
    I still can't go over the fact why BR brought Benteke in the first place, he just doesn't suit the squad IMO and his performance today is simply abysmal as he couldn't covert the numerous numbers of crosses in goals. Mignolet has been alright but overall I think his performance is poor. I just hope Klopp spends the money wisely in this transfer window.

    Let's not forget we're up against Stoke next.

    Might as well not even show up.
    Stoke don't play Pulis-ball anymore. We'll have more success against them imo.

    2 cup games (Stoke, LC and Exeter, FA) and then we play Arsenal and Man Utd.. *****

    Ings and Origi are injured, Sturridge is massively unreliable and Benteke is absolute garbage. We need a striker and we need one now.
    Hell I'd even give Balotelli a bloody chance. Can't be any worse than this...
    Sturridge unreliable in terms of injuries or performance? He's an exceptional player when he's fit. Him and Kane up top for England hnnnngggggggg.

    You know, Liverpool really miss Sterling. I was also very impressed with Ibe today.

    One more thing: HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAH

    Harsh? I disagree, Benteke was just abysmal throughout this match especially with the numerous number of crosses created, he just couldn't get it in. The defense problem is done to the fact we're playing too deep but Sakho and Lovren did well together. About time to get Balotelli recalled from loan but we still need to make signings especially a new GK, CB and ST.

    Yep Benteke made no sense especially as he didn't buy any other players to help him.

    Frankly we should sell Benteke to Sunderland since Sam would be desperate for such a striker.

    Mark my words, we will. Klopp knows by now that this team simply doesn't cut it. He's probably already made the list up.

    I dont think there are any obvious fixes to the squad though. We need 5-6 better players which isnt going to happen in Jan

    I'll be stunned if Klopp doesn't sign at least 2 players this window.

    You're going to have a huge clearout this summer like we did after the Moyes season. Much like with us, it isn't going to be fixed in one window.

    Smith is pretty boss at crossing. Damn.
    Yeah, known for it. He's not really been tested defensively yet but there's a chance he has a first team career here. His end product is great.

    Firmino was good today as well, 3 games in a row that he's put Benteke through for a 1 on 1 and Benteke has flopped it.

    Benteke is a good, top half PL striker. We didn't overvalue him or undervalue him. He's just short on confidence right now. Give him time.

    Tall strikers are always the worst at football.
    We need another suarez esque type of player.

    Klopp has already talked about the opposite, that he doesn't want a huge clear out and how important he thinks continuity within the squad is.

    We need one striker, one CM and a back up CB, maybe an RB and maybe a GK. The only players leaving will be maybe Benteke (don't see why because we won't get the right fee back for him), Lucas, Allen and Kolo. Allen and Kolo don't even play so there won't be any of that.

    Yeah he can definitely have a future at Pool. Moreno is most likely going to stay as a starter for the next few years at least.

    One thing about Benteke is that I don't think he should be the type of player who is solely judged on his goal output. Firmino, Coutinho and co should be scoring more. His finishing/composure does need to be more consistent though. He's clearly capable of some incredible goals.

    Hard to find a Suarez but remember Suarez took a good 18 months to heat up and become a goal machine at Liverpool, also Ibrahimovic is taller than Benteke, Cavani is 2cm shorter, same for Diego Costa, Drogba is 1cm shorter.

    I honestly had no idea Kolo Toure still played for you. Thought he'd gone to the MLS or somewhere.

    Surprised someone like Sunderland or Newcastle aren't trying to get him on loan
