Guest Article: Jurgen Klopp's accountability for Liverpool's shambolic defence

[ AUTHOR : I’m_not_judgernaut ] I posted a comment after the Sevilla match, and a couple of you suggested that I submit it as a guest article so that there can be a more direct discussion about the matter, so here it is! First: I really don't understand the mantra that Alberto Moreno has made significant improvements from last season. He's always been good in attack, but I haven't seen much defensive improvement. He's still rash in the tackle; still gets caught going forward (when he should be focused on spotting defensive danger), and he STILL lunges in and leaves space in behind for opposing players. I understand that you can't *expect* defenders to stop two-on-ones, but the way Moreno approaches such situations, he may as well not even be on the field. I appreciate Moreno's attacking influence, but there's no way he shouldn’t be starting in big games, and if that’s all he can offer, the best course of action is to sub him on when we’re losing. For t

Newcastle vs. Liverpool: Premier League - Confirmed Teams

Summer signing Andy Robertson is once again ignored by Jurgen Klopp for today's Premier League clash with Newcastle United. FULL TEAM : Mignolet, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Salah, Mane Sturridge. SUBS : Karius, Klavan, Milner, Can, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Firmino, Solanke. NEWCASTLE : Elliot, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Manquillo, Shelvey, Merino, Ritchie, PĂ©rez, Atsu, Joselu As in previous games, Robertson isn't even granted a place in the 18-man matchday squad. Why? Robertson was a regular in the Premier League last season yet one transfer later, and his career has hit the skids. Klopp is basically damaging Robertson's career, and I'm sure the Scot now regrets making the summer move to Anfield. To add insult to injury, he's being kept out of the team by Alberto Moreno , who is hardly a superstar performer. Perhaps Robertson was late for training once? As his disgraceful treatment of Mamadou Sakho shows, Klopp has no compun

Leicester vs. Liverpool: Premier League - Confirmed Teams

After four games a win (and ten goals conceded along the way) Liverpool are in desperate need of a morale-boosting victory, but can the Reds arrest the current slump and emerge victorious at Leicester City? FULL TEAM : Mignolet, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Salah, Firmino. SUBS : Karius, Milner, Sturridge, Solanke, Klavan, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexander-Arnold. LEICESTER : Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan (c), Maguire, Chilwell, Ndidi, King, Albrighton, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vardy. Despite playing well every time he's featured, Andy Robertson is once again missing from the matchday squad, What is Klopp's problem? Robertson was basically an everpresent last season in the Premier League, but as soon as he comes to Anfield, he struggles to make the team on a regular basis. It's ridiculous. After his totally ineffective performance on Tuesday, Oxlade-Chamberlain is back where he belongs: on the bench. What a total waste of money. I'm not

Liverpool vs. Burnely: Premier League - Confirmed Teams

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has stuck the knife into the concept of consistent team selection yet again by making seven changes for today's Premier League clash with Burnley. FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Robertson, Milner, Can, Coutinho, Salah, Firmino, Sturridge. SUBS: Karius, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Henderson, Moreno, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Solanke. The big news is that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been dropped to the bench. Explaining the changes, Klopp insisted: "It was about the intensity of the games and the quality of the squad. There’s no doubt that the line-up we found today is a very strong one. It’s a good situation. I told the boys already, this is a wonderful line-up but we shouldn’t rely on this. "It’s all about finding the right attitude. I know the boys are ready to work but we also need to be ready not to get frustrated if different situations don’t come through, and not lose confidence because this or that doesn’t wor

Liverpool vs. Sevilla: Champions League - Confirmed Teams

As I'm sure many will agree, one of the keys to achieving defensive solidity is to (where possible) consistently play the same back four, and keep the same goalkeeper between the sticks for more than two games in a row. This is obvious to everyone with even rudimentary knowledge of football...everyone except Jurgen Klopp, that is, whose ingenious solution to Liverpool's damaging defensive instability is to keep chopping and changing the defence for no apparent reason. FULL TEAM : Karius, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Wijnaldum, Can, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Firmino. SUBS : Mignolet, Milner, Coutinho, Sturridge, Klavan, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson. Atrocious decision to drop Mignolet. Yes, he conceded five goals against Man City, but he isn't the problem right now. Mignolet has been solid for the last 9 months, and he's certainly a better option than Loris 'caught in possession' Karius, who proved against Arsenal that he *not* the calming presence Liverp

Guest Articles - Write your own post!

As you know, I've taken a step back from posting regularly, so it may be a good idea to move to a more user-generated system. This is something I've floated in the past, but Timp recently messaged me and suggested it as a possible option. You all have great ideas/insights into LFC, and offer passionate, interesting analysis of a variety of football-related issues, so why not submit your own articles? I have several other external guest writers lined up to submit articles, but the commenting community is the heart of the site, so it would be great to have some of you posting articles. A few points: * You can write whatever you like. Even articles like '10 reasons why Adam Lallana is better than Messi' are allowed; just expect a significant challenge from me in the comment section ;-) * It goes without saying, but there is no requirement to submit articles that agree with my view on LFC. In fact, I encourage you to write articles that directly conflict with my op

Liverpool vs. Man City: Premier League - Confirmed Teams

LIVERPOOL : Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane, Firmino. SUBS : Karius, Lovren, Gomez, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Solanke, Sturridge. MAN CITY : Ederson, Danilo, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Walker, De Bruyne, Silva, Mendy, Aguero, Gabriel Jesus. SUBS : Bravo, Gundogan, Mangala, Delph, Sane, Bernardo Silva, Foden. If Pep Guardiola is as negligent as Arsene Wenger - and every other boss who negligently plays an open game against Liverpool - then the Reds will run rampant during this match.

Transfer Deadline Day 2017: Van Dijk, Lemar, Coutinho, and Oxlade-Chamberlain?

Damn, it wasn't a horrible nightmare. It's transfer deadline day, and Liverpool *are* still being strongly linked with Arsenal midfielder , winger , attacking midfielder , wing-back utility man Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and, disappointingly, it looks like this proverbial 'Jack of all Trades' may turn out to be the Reds' final signing of the summer. Will Coutinho still be a Liverpool player in 14 hours? Will Jurgen Klopp spring any last-minute surprises? If the stars align, the Oxlade-Chamberlain deal will end in a stunning last-gasp collapse, but I'm not holding my breath...

Arsenal vs. Liverpool: Premier League - Confirmed Teams

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has dropped Simon Mignolet for today's Premier League clash with Arsenal. FULL TEAM : Karius, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino. SUBS : Ward, Klavan, Alexander-Arnold, Grujic, Milner, Solanke, Sturridge. ARSENAL : Cech, Holding, Koscielny, Monreal, Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Welbeck, Alexis When asked prior to the game about the decision to leave Mignolet out of the squad, Klopp insisted: “[It is] to rest him. He didn’t want to rest, it’s not a problem. We spoke yesterday and I really thought it made sense. We wanted a situation like this; we wanted to have three strong goalkeepers...and they want to have games, so today Loris is starting.” * This smacks of change for change's sake, i.e. changing 'keepers just because Klopp wants to keep players happy rather than change through necessity. In any event, since when do goalkeepers need 'rest' just *four* games in
