We really need an upgrade this window.


Red, I think u being a little bit harsh. I thought Naby put in a good performance. It will be interesting to see how he does against sterner opposition.

Like Real Mardid last season, when he was in no mans land and had to be subbed. The guy has ability, but not sure he is suited to this league or will live up to the hype. I think he has until xmas before Klopp decides if he will be sold in the summer.

He's had some glimpses, he was decent against norwich. He needs to force his way into the starting 11 now.

We just need a season of 7 out of 10 performances for Naby, that's what Wij used to do, fans often wondered what he did in games and why used to get slated for not scoring/creating enough.

The question is will we get a season out of him, if we do, there is no doubt he is good enough for us.

I thought he did well yesterday, the more he plays the better he will get, we didn't seem to miss Hendo, which is a big plus as when Hendo is out, we usually miss his movement/control in MF.

I hope he proves me wrong, but it just feels it's not going to work out, injuries or not.

I wasn't that sad to see Gini go, apart from the fee and his great injury record. After last season I feel we need to mix things up and 7/10 midfielders won't be good enough this year with the other top 4 sides improving.
It'll of course help if we can start our first choice, and in midfield, but Henderson's the engine, Fabinho the destroyer, Thiago will hopefuly dictate play and open up defences. Nabi doesn't do any of those things that well and his shot seems strangely weak.

We need more goals from midfield and someone to burst into the box. Nabi isn't even an impact sub.

Naby seemed to have had another decent game today. I hope he keeps his place in starting line up despite Henderson and Thiago coming back from injuries. He needs a run in the team.4

Why did he not start v Chelsea? Why change a winning team? I do wonder about Klopp’s selection decisions sometimes.

Klopp changed the starting line up because Fabinho had to play, however, it's Eliott who should have been benched. I don't understand, but maybe Eliott is really outstandingly better than Keita and Thiago in training

Ox and Keita havenīt looked great but it would be nice to have one player in midfield which might score sometime.

Keita has looked good for me, though he has played abit deeper in the team so far, he was unlucky to be dropped at the weekend, I agree we need more of a goal threat from MF, maybe that is why Elliott is in MF?
