Seems that Klopp is going to make some changes to the lineup for the Leicester game since we seemed sluggish in the 2nd half. I think his quote was the players "lost the plot".

I'm guessing we see changes to the midfield and up top but remain the same in the back.

Here's by guess for the weekend:

GK - Alisson
Backs - TAA, Gomez, VVD, Robertson
Mids - Henderson, Milner, Lallana
Front - Shaqiri, Sturridge, Salah

I could see Gini staying in the lineup though. Dude has been pretty good so far this season.

PAOK hosting Benfica today in Greece after tying in Portugal 1-1. Winner moves into the group stage.

Kickoff at 2:00 CST http://www.espn.com/soccer/match?gameId=525095

Hopefully PAOK wins so we get moved to Pot 2!

No **** hahahaha


Sadly enough, it's 3-1 Benfica, 4-2 aggregate.

It's over!

Pot 3 means we get to ruin a good team's dreams in CL!

We got group C with PSG, Napoli, and a team from pot 4

Not the best draw for us because we would have wanted to land in Group D based on what was available to us, but we match up well with anyone so it's just a more intriguing path to the final

Yes, it's the group of death. It's the group of death because we're in it.

That was some good skill by Alisson but holy crap that was dumb.





I really liked it hahahaha


That's as Brazilian as you can get

O/U on goals that he gives up this year by trying to play the ball in bad positions, 1.5?

There's 1.

Maybe that goal will keep Alisson from trying to play so slick going forward.

The last two games feel like they would have e ended in draws last season. If not for the Allison error, Leicester never really turned their possession into clear chances. The back 4 is looking incredibly solid so far.

1.5 might be way too low

Alisson needs to work on that.

But, it didn't cost us any points.

4 games, 12 points. Hard to be grumpy about that.

That's kind of his MO and the real knock against him. Maybe he'll get coached/peer-pressured into being more careful, but we knew we were getting that when we bought him.

I'm sure that Klopp said something to him after the last game and then this happens. I bet we get less dribbling for Alisson from now on. This team is going to make a run at a title and I bet he learns from it.

In fact, this was his quote after the game - "It is part of my game [playing out from the back with his feet] but I am not going to be arrogant to stand here and say I'm going to keep doing it. We have to learn from our mistakes."


All I know is that we're 4-0-0 with 12 points going into the break. I'll take that!

That's the part of this season that's so unfathomable... the back four just looks so composed. Like nothing bothers them.

I'm used to every whipped cross and general forward movement leading to total and absolute panic, so this is a nice break from that.

Good win. Last season we would have collapsed in stoppage time after that first goal and ended in a draw.

I thought Alisson had one of his worst distribution games, but showed that he learned his lesson and kept it simple with his feet in the back
