I think he's done all he's going to do there to be honest. He has the players to attack Liverpool today and even with as goal start he opts for the "park the bus and time waste" from the second minute. They showed they could take the game to us after Mo's penalty so their fans have every right to question why they played so negatively after a dream start. They wont sack him because for two reasons......the cost to pay him off and the difficulty in replacing him with a quality manager.If they loose him, they are fucked.
It's no coincidence that he is the only player from the starting eleven that hasn't had a vote for MOM.Lovren actually had a solid match. Dealt with some very dicey stuff well. Couple excellent lobs fwd, one of which nearly resulted in a goal. He’s been good since coming back.
Spot on. I was saying to my boys how great it is to have the big guy back. Brings a sense of calmness and authority. That shot his handling was excellent and he had the sense to slow things down. Same for that corner at the end when their goalie came up. He's the difference maker.There was a moment in the second half near the end where Son lashes a shot in, with a couple of Spurs lads waiting for tap ins. Alisson makes the save, but also keeps hold of the ball and kills the Spurs momentum.
Neville called it straightaway. No-one remembers that, especially if Liverpool go on to win the league, but having a keeper with that authority and suredness is difference between winning it and losing it.
Opponents play more defensive against us. We have to attack more with a high line. That’s makes it seem we are fragile at the back.I don't know about you lot, but I feel we're a lot more fragile at the back this season. For all our dominance, Spurs could and probably should have scored three. Touch of good fortune with the massive Eriksen chance in the first half and Son hitting the bar after the break. I'd like us to be more solid, we seem to allow a lot more chances all of a sudden. Midweek in Genk was the same, really.
Because criticism of him reaches an unreasonable level. Like group think. ESPN in their player ratings referred to his header caroming off the crossbar as if he bore some responsibility for the first goal.It's no coincidence that he is the only player from the starting eleven that hasn't had a vote for MOM.
Just saying that we rely on being able to make it happen in front of goal, and we've been lucky in some matches this season at the other end. It doesn't feel measured, although of course you could say that is the whole thing with Klopp's approach.Opponents play more defensive against us. We have to attack more with a high line.

What do you suggest? Play less attacking?
Your making that assessment on the Gomez pre-injury. The Gomez since isnt showing anywhere near that level of performance.I want to say we were much better than Spurs, but we were also very lucky to escape with the 3 points - they were THAT close to making it 2-0.
I'm sure Klopp knows what he's doing but I'd feel much better with Gomez in the middle partnering VVD than Lovren. Not that Lovren had a bad game, though. Bad things just seem to happen to Dejan, like the bad deflection.
We played much better than against Man Utd. But we need to finish better than we're doing at the moment. These games are turning out to be much more difficult than they need to be, given the gulf in the standards of both sides. This will take a toll on our guys' physiques and also we're bound to run out of luck at some point (like we sort of did against Utd).
That is basically how I see him as well. He seems to be one of those players that unlucky things happen to a disproportionate amount of times - a deflection or whatever it may be, he seems to find himself in the wrong place at the wrong time evry so often.Not that Lovren had a bad game, though. Bad things just seem to happen to Dejan, like the bad deflection.
