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.
Herrera and Mata went off in the space of 3 minutes. Lingard went off on 43rd minute so not much disruption. They weren’t in any rhythm either. It’s just protecting his players because they stunk the place out. But he makes himself look like an eejit.

Is he fecking real?

He's a delusional sulky idiot and once the media finally get over the goofy face and 'positive' (ahem) demeanor maybe they'll start calling him on the utter shite that streams out of his mouth (and from his teams once the pressure is on).

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.
I still don't understand what you are arguing.

Liverpool were not negative (as you claimed). Their fullbacks still bombed forward and they still had a lionshare of possession. Regardless, they clearly respected Ole's squad and didn't throw the kitchen sink at United as they would with other teams. This is pragmatism plain and simple.

Let's also not forget Firmino (their most important attacking player IMO) went off injured and they are away to a rival who is in good form. That's like saying City was negative at Anfield or even Ole was negative this match. Mourinho's tactics were the definition of negative football (fullbacks not pushing forward, no pressing, etc) today's match was not.

Was waiting for him to say the sun was too bright given we've had the snow and the wind so far.

Imagine if they'd had 3 injuries like we did, 4 including Rashford :rolleyes:

Reading another thread did he say the interviewer looked at him funny?!

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.

Anyone got the footage of him making Henderson shake his hand like some weird bully after he blanked him?
It was very odd. You always sense that Klopp's "likeable" persona hides the real Klopp, and a few players who know him better probably think he's a bit of a tool.

Just saw an article about it. Didn't know what the problem was when watching. A bit of tension there between the two:D

Henderson ignored him when he came off, Klopp called him back and had a right go at him. Henderson looked like he genuinely didn't mean to but Klopp was making it known he didn't appreciate it. Weird one.

May will quash the talk of extending Brexit until 2021. The Brexit fatigue will be unbearable by then.

Klopp in being an absolute prick shocker. The guy is the biggest tit in football and it sickened me watching our players laughing and smiling with him pre-match in the tunnel. Absolute wankstain.

This guy is a joke :lol:. I don't know whats worse, Liverpool's shite on a stick football or his excuses after a game.

It seems that Buvac being the 'brain' actually had some substance to it, Liverpool are nowhere near as fluid going forward. I thought it was nonsense, but Klopp has turned out to be a long ball merchant without him.

I mean... We were playing McTominay and Pereira in midfield instead of Herrera and Matic. Lingard made a short cameo but we were without him and Martial. Rashford was injured (as a result of cynical Liverpool fouls) so we were effectively playing with 10 men. And imagine complaining about Firmino with United's attacking injuries in context. It's like complaining that you just lost your wallet with $100 cash in it to a guy who just lost his job. Klopp just looks like a complete bellend.

Klopp failed today, no two ways about it . Liverpool were toothless.

Spot on. He's been basking in this media love in for so long he's not really aware how fickle they can be and when, inevitably, they turn on him he might well crack. By the way, it's the media that disgusts me more than him

Klopp is getting hot under the collar. Fined for his rant after their game against West Ham. Now ranting because his team were unable to press home the advantage against us. Say’s volumes about our tactics and endeavour in the second half.

I don’t think Liverpool have a chance of making it till May, I reckon Bayern will sort out a hard Brexit for them in the return leg.
:wenger::lol:

Well it will be interesting in the event of a no deal what might happen with fixtures in Europe for teams and fans. But I digress.

I found his subs confusing. Sturridge offers little in terms of work rate and the option was there to bring Shaqiri on, moving Salah to the middle. Instead what we got was Sturridge coming on to contribute next to nothing, and Salah remaining pocketed on the right. Then he took off one of our better players in Henderson.

Starting Milner was daft as well. TAA would’ve probably done more with the space Milner had in the first half.

When we’re really struggling to break a team down we don’t have a clue what to do and resort to aimless crossing. Very frustrating.

Still if he manages to deliver a league title I won’t care how lucky we were. I’m not sure we will do that but we’ll see.

United's injuries which weakened them was a bad thing for Liverpool ? Not sure what he is talking about here. Makes no sense whatsoever.
