He’s an utter prick. Never liked the bloke even during his hipster Dortmund days when this place was circle jerking about 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.
Toothless, sure. Pragmatic, absolutely. Negative, no. That was the extent of the discussion.
United clearly had more injuries and nobody is saying Klopp's excuses are valid so let's not get into a meaningless back and forth discussion.

:lol:

Is that a my dad is stronger than yours kind of joke?
I just like to laugh at anyone who annoyingly supported the previous manager until the end. Carry on.

Some of us have more faith than others. Nothing wrong with it.

Still trying to pretend you aren't a Liverpool fan?
Well some people don't take football that seriously and like to do other things in our spare time rather than interrogate random posters on the internet about who they support. Don't worry mate, you are the best top red I've ever exchanged anonymous messages with on the internet. Nobody can ever question your internet fandom that's for sure.

Turns into a coward when playing against us. Liverpool never looked like winning.

There it is people, in writing, I am the best person on the internet.

I'm so proud of myself right now.

Klopp's the perfect manager for Liverpool. His excuse making is award worthy.

Have Klopp and Souness ever been in the same room?
They’d have to get Dynorod in to deal with that amount of shit being spouted.

Yeah, that didn't happen but whatever rocks your boat mr. Football supporter.
I just had a wee joke and you got all worked up over nothing.

This was probably the most honest post match interview I've heard from him after Liverpool haven't won.
He was stressed and pissed off. First time I've seen the cracks showing from him .

Ha I didn't get worked up. I made a poorly executed half-joke that didn't land well. It happens.

So if United play hoofball according to rawk, what the feck was that from Liverpool today? It was like watching a Stevie Me highlights reel but with every player attempting the long ball spray.

Its like their tactic is to completely circumvent their lack of attacking threat and technical ability in midfield by have their forwards get on to long balls from the back and their midfielders entirely focus on hard running and cycling the ball around for the forwards.

They routinely transform us into an 'alehouse team' by the sheer power of wishful thinking; or lying, as it's more commonly known.

Question to Liverpool supporters:

Granted the Caf is usually very harsh on Klopp, but what do you think about his comments today? Don't you think it's a bit disingenuous to draw equivalencies between the injury crises facing the two clubs?

For context, now we face Palace without:
Matic
Mata
Hererra
Rashford
Lingard
Martial.
4 of which were injured during the match today.

And Ole hasn't complained! A refreshing change from Mourinho.

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.
I felt like Salah was having a sulk today after Firmino went off. iMO his work rate has dropped off significantly from last year and with Bobby off and no work on a press from Sturridge more is asked from Mo and tbh I felt like he didn’t do it today. Also looked like h was having a sulk going off maybe frustrated that he was pants but are that and the Henderson “spat” signs of cracks? I actually thought you looked nervous to lose today. I have seen that been touted a few times last few weeks but I don’t think it was true on previous games. Today I though you looked notably nervous.

I think what he might’ve been trying to say (I’m stretching here) is that United’s injuries forced them to change shape/set up and this in turn led to us struggling to adapt to those changes. Like I said I’m stretching. He always comes out with BS excuses when we have a bad result or performance.

He’s usually calmer and more honest in his press conferences than he is immediately after a game in a post match interview.

We’d fall off of a cliff edge if we lost 5/6 of our starting XI, so yes it is disingenuous for Klopp to compare, if that’s what he was doing.

His comment is pretty damn disrespectful towards Sturridge, no?
Hope so he was an utter disgrace, as per usual when he gets on the field.

Doesn't press, offers zero movement .. absolute pile of trash, if I was Klopp I'd prefer a youth striker to him. Pointless waste of a player these days.

I felt the same to be honest. Almost like the players were afraid to lose. Today is the worst I’ve seen Mane play all season as well. He wasn’t able to play simple, unchallenged passes to his own team.

It was a terrible performance all round although I thought Van Dijk, Fabinho & Henderson were all very good.

I was surprised when he got the nod. I thought that Shaqiri coming on and Salah going up top, or even Origi coming on were better options.

Same. You obviously can't really replace a player like Firmino, but going from that to a player like Sturridge who barely even wants to track back and offers nothing to his teammates is such a dramatic shift.

Whole attack was dysfunctional from then on.

Robertson played well too I thought, I couldn't believe he took Henderson off when he did because at the time I thought he'd been your second best player. Don't know what was wrong with Mane but nothing was going right for him today.
