Hard to know what to say. Down to 1/4 main central defenders, a few more miles on the clock for Mo and Firmino, and we still lost! If there was any doubt I think it became clearer who doesn't have a future here.
I want us to win a trophy so it is frustrating. At the same time this is the third priority, by some distance, of the competitions we enter. We are top in the Premier League and into the knockout stages of the CL, so that gives adequate perspective as to where the team is at.
But still. Don't like losing.
Hoever did well. He has a future. Several of them do not. At least not here.
I love Klopp and I know we are going for the premier league but wtf is this shite we have van dijk the only fit cb and he’s saying he’s not doing anything in the transfer market he has a massive transfer budget and why not jump in for a big strong cb we can’t count on lovern to do the job he’s not an lfc player and as for Moreno he’s a joke and should of been sold a long time ago. The only problem now is the pressure is on Klopp now because he has to get this premier league but there’s no way we can do that with out a cb
Totally fine with being out of the competition, but time to pull the plug on Lovren. Can't play effectively against top competition; can't stay healthy when needed.
Mignolet no chance on either goal. Milner single-handedly at fault on goal number 1... too much space in what I believe was his area for goal number 2. Poor service from him when he moved up in play. Naby was poor as well. Sturridge's lack of effort in rare matches can be frustrating.
Young kids played pretty well. Nice goal by Origi and good effort most of the game.
I wouldn't be too upset by this, apart from loosing 2 straight and another year of disappointing domestic cups, I don't think it says much about our form or depth. When I saw the lineups, I was confident we'd loose this game. When you put together a team that is composed of fringe players, youngsters, an out of position first teamer and a backup goalie, all of whom struggle to get regular playing time and lack the cohesion of the starting 11, that's what you get. Some played stepped up and played well, others were seriously disappointing. After embarrassing Wolves last time at home, I understand they'd want a bit of revenge and they were up for it. Sucks we drew Chelsea and Wolves in domestic cups, would have been nice to have an easier run.
I am not going to lie. I am disappointed because I love the F.A Cup competition and it was part of my life growing up as a football supporter, it was like family event every year, akin to Christmas and Eid.
I really wanted us to progress in this competition. However, if it means sacrificing this competition for other priorities than so be it....."sigh" with resignation.
Well I guess if we don't drop points at Brighton, some will say it was justified.... let's hope that is the case. I don't believe that two losses will have no effect on morale. He will have to lift them for the weekend.
Ah, you can argue we have bigger fish to fry, but consecutive losses is never good, regardless of the 11 we field. I know some will argue this loss won't percolate through to the first team, but I think it dents confidence, particularly when the subs of our first team were so appalling tonight.
KJH my motm. Not sure whether I would be starting him next match if Lovren isn't fit, but a great prospect.
