He’s making excuses to the cameras but I bet inside he’s pissed off. Such a wretched performance both individually and collectively. I’m not sure what he expected that midfield three to offer us offensively. Also Milner at RB was a mistake. He had so much space and did nothing with it.

We’ve got favourable fixtures but City are a much better side than we are.
It's not just this game though, he talks some absolute crap and the press are giving him an easy ride for now.

We were without Matic & Martial then we lost Herrera, Mata and Lingard + Rashford kept playing despite being injured. They should have destroyed us and yet we had the best chances.

I’ve heard a few people start to raise an eyebrow to it now.
Interesting, haven't noticed it myself. It's fine as long as he wins I guess, but if your form drops off and results do then the press will pick up on it a lot more, which will put a bit more pressure on him.

He really is a joke of a human being, even his deluded players must be having a laugh at his excuses. Watford who just smashed Cardiff away 5-1 will be no easy feat the way they're playing, and then they'll go to Goodison. There's a fair chance that City will pass them in the next two games.

I hope he stays and keeps Liverpool trophyless for the next 15 years to come.
Never mind his excuses. I don’t know how they take his touchline antics seriously. Fecking calm down you imbecile.

I’ve never heard a manager complaining about an injury “crisis” when it’s the opposition that is dropping like flies. It’s United that should be talking about a crisis for feck sake.

Had no courage to go for 3 points even after our injury crisis, considering we had Matic and Martial out before even a ball was kicked it was unbelievably negative approach to the game.

Not that it'll be called out in the media, you have Souness claiming it was a footballing masterclass and a massive statement from Liverpool.

We had half a team in a must win game for them and De Gea had f*ck all to do.

Interesting line of thinking from Klopp. Perhaps if Rashford came off and we played with ten men we might have won the match, if we follow his logic?

Taking the next corner instead of Jones!

Seriously, did that happen? Doesn't surprise me that he'd give no credit to us but … really? I missed Post Match as my "cough" mode of viewing switched immediately to the EPL final.

Pragmatic yes, but negative no. He subbed a DM for an AM to be a bit more positive.

With that said he clearly respected United's quality and the attacking players were a bit more isolated.

He is a big tit. But I have to say I think he has the right idea. We all expect Liverpool to panic at some point, but Klopp for all his weird energy has the right mentality of keeping calm and not rush anything. It isn't a bad point for them. Now, sometimes you do need to be a bit desperate and go for it so we'll see, but Liverpool has a habit of being too emotional so I have to give credit to Klopp for recognising that and changing things up.

He did, I'd recommend you to watch post-match 'analysis' but its pointless at this stage. Scouse delusion is reaching unprecedented levels.

That was him not being pragmatic, we played without a proper DM and there was space to be exploited in middle. Liverpool refused to press our CBs at all in the fear of being caught out on counter. Nothing in their strategy changed after we had to change our entire midfield and 2/3rd attack was out injured/playing injured.

I expected them to push us in 2nd half and it was same old shite of keeping ball and pumping in long balls into channel. We had the chances to win it, make no mistake they were lucky to get away with 1 point. Their performance against this crippled United side warranted nothing.

Klopp clearly set out negatively to stop us. Just because you use possession to strangle the game doesn't mean its positive. We know that after having Van Gaal. Klopp tactic backfired from our substitutions and he didn't manage to change it up while Ole did. We had the bigger chances because we set out to attack going forward and defend when not having the ball. I expected Liverpool to be further frustrated and give us more opportunities to counter but they strangled the game completely with their possession and lack of intent going forward.

I don't understand what your trying to say. Refusing to press the opposing CBs so you won't get caught on the counter is a clear example of pragmatism. Also subbing a defensive midfielder for an attacking one proves he wasn't negative (as you claimed) and more positive if anything (as I claimed).

I remember Jose accusing him of this. Their first game here was it?
I don't remember that, but he clearly does this against us. Saying after the game what a shit game, but the fact is he is a big shit talker of the highest level, so he should thank himself but he will rather complain about us having 3 injuries in a half :lol:. Weirdo.

his players froze again. you can see they don't play their normal game when put under pressure to win crucial game. they should've been sensing blood but infact we got more and more comfortable as the game went on.

To be fair to him he did also say that they should be beating a United team that was there for the taking.

To be fair, I understand Klopp. He didn't say it in a negative way, it was just the truth. There were so many stoppages in the first half because of injuries (4 subs and the game got stopped for another couple of times), which made impossible for any team to play well, or as Klopp said, to get in the rhythm.

Second half is an another matter though.

Rashford was injured 10 mins into the match and we had Lukaku and Mata on counter, hardly speed demons. Pragmatism makes sense when opposition are in great form and lethal on break. We were without our 2 best counter attackers in Martial/Lingard while Rashford wasn't fit. Not to mention we weren't moving the ball in midfield with same speed without Matic and Herrera. He was overly negative at the start, and failed to capitalize when injuries hit us which by the way completely ruined any tactical work or planning we had done in the midweek.

Also, he only brought on Shaqiri in final 15 minutes. If he was willing to risk it, that substitution would've happened much earlier. You can dress it however you want, 1 shot on target in 90 minutes speak volumes of the 'attacking' Liverpool did today.
