    Didnt he go off injured in 7-0 against Palace?
    And woild you include that in our best games of the last 3 years?
    We were lucky not to be 3-0 down at half time.

    I guess this will sound like a bashing or him a scapegoat.

    At the start of the season we were hoping;

    Henderson Fabinho Thiago

    As the midfield 3.

    Has it been used yet ?
    I m not sure.

    The first moments of Thiago he was pinging the ball about like I've never seen.

    Now he is just making the simple ball ; sideways.

    Confidence of the team doesn't help.
    Plus injuries.
    But with Gini at CDM Thiago sits there too.
    But as a 6 does Thiago have defensively what Fabinho has and as does Gini and Hendo.

    Really disappointed in Thiago.
    Yellow cards
    No goals
    No assists.

    Obviously a world class player.
    But him in the centre midfield the pressing game of the team is very reduced with Thiago in it.

    And he’s not even hitting the passes with conviction.

    Thiago has played with Fabinho/Hendo once in the away derby.

    You know the game we completely bossed.

    Im going with Klopp in that he says we not see the best of Thiago this season and we wont.

    If after the first ten games he is poor then we may have an issue but give hin his due he has probably played more games for us then Keita has in 3 years !

    I was hoping for Gini Hendo Thiago as all our other midfielders best performances have all come playing with Gini and Hendo, including Fab

    The pressing game is a who we've not got in defence and Hendo and Gini not being in midfield issue, the last 2 seasons we played a very high risk game with our high press and it was reliant on having Virgil and Matip or Virgil and Gomez in defence

    Timing is everything in life, and ever since he's came into the squad we've been awful.
    Obviously not all his fault but it doesn't look good on him.

    I could create a thread with almost the same title for another player, only the gaps he makes appear are for the opposition

    The simple matter is, the way we are playing, blocks the lines for him to make the kind of passes that made him renouned as world class and saw him win 9 league titles and 2 Champions League trophies in 11 years with 2 different clubs

    Can he be asked to be more direct at time, play the switches and attempted balls over the top we've been missing through Hendo's absence from midfield, Absolutely

    Given how teams swamping Bobby with 2 or 3 players is making him ineffectual AND blocking the lines for the kind of passing Thiago is renouned for, can we do more and use Bobby a little differently to change that dynamic? Absolutely
