    but how did Klopp know he was going to get injured? was it his fault thiago got sliced up, like VVD did?

    only real blame was when Milner played 3 games in a week and picked up a injury that's happened before but he's not counted as a "key player" I suppose.
    Agreed.
    It's just a shitter, isn't it? A real fucking shitter.
    Only consolation is that I think City will be more consistent than MU. I hope so anyway!

    They seem to be very solid, 13 goals conceded in this mad season is nothing to sniff at

    Dias is making the same difference as VVD for us

    Aguero hasn't been fit for most of it either, or corona'd they're still lacking a bit, imagine them with a fit top constantly good striker? now that's a bit scary..

    Sorry but couldn't disagree more on Jota v the Danes. Absolutely mad as fook decision to play him - virtually ALL GAME too.. Same for Salah..in the dead rubber against a team he KNEW were overly physical..!...!

    Our most potent weapon at that time - not because he is better than Bobby, Salah or Mane... but because at that moment in time he was on fire AND had played many games already in a new team at a new club. SO WHY WHY WHY play him 90 minutes in a meaningless game - in a completely alien setup to that which he was getting used to?

    Will have to agree to disagree BUT I am certain Klopp is kicking himself daily over it

    Klopp was continually moaning about too many matches and not enough rest leading up to this. He knows he fucked up and hasn't mentioned this since

    He was royally miffed in summer 2019 when he defended the club for "paying the bills' rather than enter the market. It was as subtle and nuanced a moan as it was possible to make without it seeping through to the existing squad.

    I think this summer he wanted to keep hold of a few and bring in more - then when Virg got injured he lost it a bit.

    The squad appears to have simply run out of steam physically and mentally, particularly mentally.
    The mistake both Klopp and FSG have made, is that the same group of players could go to the well yet again this season, without some major investment.

    And by that I don’t mean spending £83m and recouping £53m as we did last summer. That’s lower half of the table investment, not stay on top of the Premier and Champions league pile.
    100% correct.
    Wether its one or both of them (I'd imagine its more FSG than Klopp) it was folly to expect the same for a third season. FSG were always going to do that, its been plain obvious.
    Strike while the iron is hot not when its gone cold.
