Poch needs to decide on a system and stick with it, one that suits the personnel we have. Chopping and changing from one game to the next can’t be doing anyone any favours least of all our central midfielders who don’t look like they now if they’re coming or going

If he decides a back four is the best system for us then please don’t play Trippier as an orthodox RB, and if it’s a 3 then don’t play Davies as the LWB

For my money we have played our best stuff with a 3-4-2-1 and it’s a system that largely suits our personnel

I'll take my chance that he isn't.
Okay, that's fair enough, it's just that I have found out it is best not to be too judgemental on posters and their opinions because you never know etc etc.

On the topic of referees, that was a pen at the end of the game, but I am sure Liverpool have had their fair share of poor decisions go against them, a bit like the foul on Son. It probably levels out over the course of the season, or so I have heard.

I expected nothing from Oliver. Liverpool got a lot of favourable decisions against City in the Champions' League. I think the chestnut about things evening out is just an old wives' tale that is passed on generation to generation to excuse poor refereeing.

I think I read the old wives tale on here, but you never know, there are alot of of well informed people about. I always think by the law of averages that these things would even themselves out.

It was Liverpools time to get some luck today.

Not all doom and gloom. We have too many good players but, what is worrying me........

Too many players are playing like they are knackered. Does Poch’s methods wear out players ?

Too many have had injuries over the last couple of years. I hope Poch doesn’t have a shelf life, but we are no where near playing as good as we were 2 years ago.

The players haven't had a preseason of note, so it can't be the reason this early in the season. I am surprised that people are even questioning Poch's coaching and training. We've finished strongly in the last two seasons. The tiredness is mental fatigue and it relates to the World Cup.

I hope so. Which begs the oft repeated question...... why no bloody signings ?

Is there a you are a knee jerking **** emoticon
Thankfully not if your post is anything to go by! Apologies if my opinion differs from yours but maybe it’s not just Poch who needs to get real. This team is not a happy one at the moment any fool can see that. The big question is, what do they do about it? Hopefully a couple of wins against the mighty Brighton and Huddersfield will get a bit of confidence back but if they don’t materialise Poch has a mighty big fuckoff hill to climb. Will Levy help him climb it in Jan? Let’s all hope so.

Yep, everyone was hankering after Lewis Cook
Well we obvs. were never in the player from Madrid sweep stakes due to him rocking up at chelsea so who else was there?

You should be less negative about players of the ilk of Cook, it's served Spurs well in the past to buy young talented English players, it wouldn't have been wrong to try.

Thing is, if Poch is happy to create some of the troubles he faces, and he seems pretty calm about doing so, then as long as everyone is on the same page, hopefully they can all turn it around together!

That’s not your original point, is it? Fucking hell, it’s like having a localised Boris Johnson in the room
