    XI for Liverpool

    I think Godfrey is better alongside a centre back with aerial ability and in that more old fashioned mould! Klose definitely looked quite rusty in the limited game time he had in pre season. Understandable considering his ongoing injury problems. Hanley in his first season with us was our most consistent centre back. Let's give him a chance..

    Farke on Canary Call

    Judging by the recent refereeing decisions in the Cardiff game v Chelsea, the standard of officiating is no better in the premier league

    OT: Mark Hollis dead.

    Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock are two incredible albums (works of art) and - as it's been pointed to above - Mark Hollis really couldn't be bothered with the sideshow of fame and ****, within the music industry...Rest in peace

    A very disappointing day

    You've got to trust Webber and Farke, they've always played the long game! Looking forward to seeing McLean get more game time. Also, agree with the above that Klose, Tettey and Leitner coming back will help...also hoping we'll see Grant Hanley play and return to form. Pretty much everyone in the squad has contributed at some point this season, otherwise they've gone on loan...

    Really great read...good that the Independent has covered articles on Vrancic and Klose recently! Vrancic is an understated character according to this, perhaps similar to the way he plays.

    Onel likes the little blue pen.

    I feel somewhat disappointed that Onel, a child of socialist Cuba, likes such capitalist shops Maybe, not all Cubans are socialist at heart

    Team for Preston

    Bielsa subbed a Leeds midfielder off in the first half last night for giving away the ball. Tettey has done it numerous times....he needs to go off

    Klose On His Way ?

    Don''t think it would be a massive loss if we can bring in a capable replacement on loan. Not been overly consistent...can be the best centre back we have but switches off a lot.

    Ben Marshall

    Great offensively, suspect in his defensive responsibilities...Hanley''s stare after the winner says it all! Needs to up his game at right back. Seems to have been shoehorned into that position but needs some serious coaching judging by the last two league games.

    Mixed messages

    I remember that Farke was talking up the state of the squad in the pre match build up to yesterday’s game. In his opinion, we’re not far off. He stated we needed a finisher upfront, but feels we are pretty much there centrally in midfield and defence. Fast forward to his post match analysis and there was the excuse of injuries (Hanley, Vrancic, Tettey, Maddison during the game). I find it worrying that he feels our squad is in a good shape.

    When you look at the bench - we had Watkins (hasn’t played at all recently), Raggett (one appearance at the end of the Bristol city away game?), Stiepermann (hasn’t played since Brentford at home during the Christmas period) as well as two players that have played a fair bit (Srebeny, Pinto). I look at this squad and see around a team of players that have played well in patches this season. The rest of the squad looks bereft of confidence / form and question marks are next to players who will be leaving permanently or going back to their loan clubs. I get the impression that Farke wants to have a settled squad but reality is we will see more upheaval over the summer. We don’t look like a club that has moved on from the fallout after relegation.

    I think we miss Trybull a lot. He plays that halfback sort of position. He screens the defence but also provides some real assurance on the ball and quickly distributes to the real flair players. I''m hoping McLean is similar so we don''t suffer so much if one is injured.

    Dennis Srbeny

    Low risk signing with potential. Cheaper than league 1 or 2. Also, Webber has always said he doesn''t like operating in the january transfer window. More players are available in the summer, without paying way over the odds...

    Pot kettle black

    I seem to remember our fans criticising Farke for not utilising the squad in late October. We played Derby a few days after 120 minutes vs Arsenal in the cup.

    I''m in agreement with most that 6 changes was excessive but it''s not Farke''s fault that the offensive players bought in the summer either aren''t up to scratch or haven''t shown their form. He needed to mix it up a bit today to get some competition. This was something Lambert used to manage really well.

    I''m pretty happy with our defensive options atm - Pinto, Klose, Zimmermann, Hanley, Lewis all showing form. Husband and Stiepermann aren''t convincing. We''re not looking at all convincing with our (back up) options up front or in attacking midfield. Oliveira is patchy. Maddison and Pritchard are far better than our other options. This is where we need to be making better signings IMO, so we can rotate the squad and still win games!

    It’s tbe midfield

    At least use solid facts when making an argument Dean Coney''s Boots. Vrancic started when we beat Sheff Wed and drew with Barnsley.

    We are far more balanced with Tettey / Trybull in the side. I think it helps having a bit more height as well. Reed has been one of our better players recently but I worry seeing both him and Pritchard in the lineup. They looked like ball boys at Leeds!

    Is Farke On LSD???

    No, I think he can see player confidence is low and he''s trying to keep positive. We''re under performing but I still think we''ve a squad that is inferior to at least 6 others sides. We''ve had a lot of injuries this season and a number of players that are new to the league. It''s frustrating. For sure. We''re not gonna become a great side without a bit of tough learning along the way...
