Klopp's team selection, setup, and decision making have contributed as much to this as the players have.
I have a feeling he is tinkering too much with the formation and can't find a balance yet.
Last year in Champions league we were cruising through our group stages.

Oh well, that was our worst game of the season so far. Nothing worked out at all. Klopp has given up shouting, not sure whether they couldn't hear him anyway or why they weren't able to do "the normal things" at least. Sh*t happens

My girls are practicing their lines and songs for the upcoming school production, an infinately more enjoyable experience than watching this. Still, we can still qualify and we’re 3rd in the league. The sky is not falling in guys and gals.

Matip lallana moreno sturridge origi should never ever play for us.
Wijanldum as a regular starter is mediocrity.

Woefully disappointing from every player, probably our worst display for a long time.

Please can the real Mo Salah report to Belgrade airport to aid in the investigation into the imposter?

The quality in the middle of the park isn't there, the coaching isn't there either. Klopp needs to hire someone who sees things that he wont see. Like Lallalna shouldn't play in games like this, he's not up to speed or good enough righ now; play him at Cardiff and Hudddersfield, etc until he gets match fit. Matip hasn't been good enough in almost 18 mths, move him on and bring in a defender who is better, loads of those in the BPL.

I can accept loosing an away game in the CL but this performance has been fucking dreadful. Are Lallana, Sturridge and Matip really strength in depth? Has Klopp managed the game well in terms of selection and substitutions? Has Mo been exchanged with a doppelganger?
A result and performance like this has been coming because we've gotten away with lots of very very average league displays this season.

Everything is wrong in this team apart from our defence.
Front 3 are in some dream land. Midfield think everygame is a stroll in the park.

Unfortunately my BT Sport stream was 1080p of perfection without a single wobble....
There were periods of this where I just didn't understand what was happening.

Last year in Champions league we were cruising through our group stages.
We were slicing through teams like butter last season.
We looked rubbish defensively and had a keeper prone to an error or two but still, we played with purpose.

Now we play like we hope for a 0-0. Our midfield looks bang average and offers no link to defence or attack.
Our front three are playing like a trio of Andy Carrol, David ngog and Jermaine pennant.
TAA looks hopeless.

But worse of all, klopp looks like he’s not having much fun. His enthusiasm seems to be a bit laboured. Much like the team.
