That's the situation as I see it too, getting rid of him would be madness and doesn't achieve anything, it's not going to make us anymore likely to qualify for the CL so is pointless aside from anything else. Next season he has to turn it around and get us challenging again and at least making the top 4.

That said I do worry that if this shit run of form isn't turned around before the end of the season he might decide himself to leave in the summer.

I think we need to cut out the conspiracy theories on Covid and caffeine. It's proper tinfoil hat stuff that we're somehow suffering the affects more than anyone else.

Yeah i wasn't posting it as an excuse just for Liverpool, more to highlight the impact on sport in general. That said, without doubt football has been massively impacted by COVID

It definitely isn't going to happen but how good would it be to start next season on fire and blow everyone away. Literally get back in the groove and walk it. Imagine the utd fans faces after writing us off. It would take a fucking miracle of epic parting the seas proportions though. But this season is like no other I've ever known so maybe it's written in the stars.

It'd be lovely mate! The problem is we've put off the rebuild process and it's all come down like a house of cards during a pandemic and injury crisis.

I'd love nothing more than for Bobby to get his mojo back, Mane to regain his form and Robertson and Trent to hit 15+ assists each again. But I fear this team has come to the end of its time and we'll need to add fresh legs and minds to reach the levels of last season again.

Again i think lack of fans has been very telling on LFC but that doesn't excuse the really poor form, but as you said....new season fans back could be key....a break for the players would have been nice but we have the euros

Every team has missed their fans. But I don't think we'd have lost 6 on the bounce with them. I think the players would have been urged to go forwards with the constant ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK that would have been reverberating around the ground by now. Now we are in a slump, confidence shot, how do you get that extra energy in a glorified practice match.

Everyone seems lost and it’s to the manager they all look to .. But he’s seems lost as the players do .. which makes it all the more worrying.

I think Jurgen has made some mistakes this season. Big time. Playing senior players when we were already guaranteed top spot in the group was fuckin stupid. The fact that it was away, a few days before another away game at Fulham just made it even more crazy.

I think loaning out Minamino was strange too. Don't know what the fuck happened there. He played well v. Palace but was never seen again. The Palace game was the big inflection point in our whole fuckin season.

I think we've been let down by the squad players big time this season too. They've been needed and they didn't step up. Keita, Oxlade, Shaqiri, Origi. All fuckin shit. Sell them all this summer please.

We've also been fucked over by VAR and officials too. Not enough to make this a decent season...... But enough that we'd still be in top 4.

Also, we're too fuckin nice. When shitty decisions get given against us, we just get on with it. I think we need to grow a pair a bit and fuckin get in the refs ear a bit. Also, when a game isn't going for us, fuckin spend a few mins breaking the game, leave the fuckin boot in a bit.

The team didn't even react to Mane getting the ball booted at his head against Chelsea.

No 'team' there at the moment, no fight, completely defeated once they fall into a disadvantaged position etc

Time for a refresh in general

That's a fair point. Wonder if we'll try to make some kind of approach for Grealish, maybe a money+swap deal of some kind.

Watching Klopp watch the team, he looks like he did during our first season or so. He made huge changes to the game style the following season and brought in some replacements. I'm looking forward to next season. Should be interesting.

Our £1m up front, a bag of peanuts over 5 years and europa league (if we turn this around) won’t be enough to attract even the likes of Grealish!

This run is so poor I am beginning to wonder whether something has soured within the club. I thought AT THE TIME that there was something strange about the performance and body language of the players in the Midtjylland game. Is it possible that something went wrong in the prep for that game that soured the atmosphere?

I'd like to think we've hit our lowest ebb (the failed Henderson centre-back experiment) and everything now is just trying get out of the hole we put ourselves in. It will take time to build confidence again.

Positives from today:

-I thought the CBs were quite decent and I didn't feel like they would score from every set piece as we had a physical presence.

- Keita looked okay and Fabinho came on to play in midfield. Next game we can play Keita/Fab/Milner (or Thiago) and they will move the ball around quicker.

It's a nothing rumour by some rival fan. That minamino was let go as he refused to take asthma meds.

Dortmund haven’t won anything since they got rid of Klopp, yet Klopp has reached the CL Final twice winning once and the PL.

We have to let this season finish and regroup.

The lesson here is that getting rid of Klopp is a mistake. Utd would hire Klopp tomorrow if they could. So would many others.

the injuries are one thing but what is most important is the consistency. Have e even played two games with the same team. We have not had a proper midfield since Hendo and Fabihno where played there. The problem is that we played our midfield guys in defence and this is why we have suffered.

Wijnaldum is off, Thiago hasn't played enough, Milner is now rather error prone and Curtis Jones inexperienced. I think the mgmt made a mistake in moving the key midfielders ie our ball winners , motivators out of position.

We have had no consistency and continuity anywhere. Even the goalkeepers have had to change.

Now we need to focus on getting a result against Liepzig. I believe that we will the Champions League this year. I feel it is written in the stars.

Positivity!!
