    Yep.

    I think there's a few players we need to move on, some players just go stale. Our style needs a bit of reinvention too, sick of watching us wait for an assist from TAA or Robbo, let's get passes in behind defensive lines

    Getting fed up with the tiredness excuses though. Every team is tired.

    Nick, problem is, especially with injuries, and the club's refusal to buy anyone, plus Klopp not really rotating anyone, many of the key players have played nearly every minute of every game.

    When you add in the congested nature of the start of the season, the shortened off season, and the usual glut of matches in December-early January, many key players are exhausted and need a few weeks rest. Until they do, not much will change in my book.

    p.s.

    Though Nick, I can understand your frustration. I feel that way too.

    Title is gone, in serious trouble of missing the 4 now.

    Yes we’ve had injuries but we have just completely fallen apart the last 2 months.

    There's succumbing to injuries and then there's capitulation. Alisson hasn't made 3 errors leading to goals in 2 games because of injuries.

    You expect far better resolve from a team that has accomplished what it has.

    I said it in the general thread, something hasn't seemed right about this team ever since the return from Covid. They've been sloppy at both ends of the pitch, have lacked sharpness, and have lacked more ideas in the final third. I think everybody is getting fed up with the relentess crosses into the box from TAA and Robbo - it was good when defences weren't as good at dealing with it, but they've figured it out now, just like how City's trademark balls to Sterling and his subsequent cutbacks from the sideline was worked out.

    We need a bit of investment this summer but I'm nervous that FSG will tighten the purse strings again.

    They finally got a win. Beat Leipzig 2-0 in the ECL in the away leg.

    This is really embarrassing now. Goes beyond injuries.

    This is not a dig at TAA's performance, but i dont want him at right back anymore. He is a midfielder and the midfield is crying out for some guile, thrust and imagination.
