    If they don't know the basics, it matters who the manager is, to ensure they do know.

    It wouldn't surprise me.
  3. Our 2 best players form has deteriorated, just when we needed it. not sure any of them will get a move on this form.
  4. All day long.. the game has gone, with these kind of decisions.....Harry Kanes was nailed on pen too, in their game.

    I think the whole club is, in terms of relevant people. I don't know what to think of John Terry, maybe he just observes and keeps his own counsel.....or not got the management confidence to rock the boat....don't know, never had him down as a shrinking violet.

    My suspicions all along.... Dean has already touched on players not being fit enough, but not gone as far to say, it may be down to himself.....he does strike me as a coach, not a manager, certainly not at this level.....we need a manager. Its the demanding respect, where i think things may be tad amiss. when you are a manager, its not wanting to be liked that brings success, its gaining respect.

    I wouldn't be shocked, on the basis of the people he has above him.

    I can assure you they get more right than wrong and they had a good manager in Brendan Rodgers.....but they don't stop striving, and went for Klopp well if we keep making bad decisions, we have too keep bulding at the rate we do.....its self perpetuating and we are the architects of our own demise. its not a cycle, like the seasons, where the sun is now shining and we can prepare for the winter.....if we keep making the same mistakes,it will keep repeating.... its not the first time we have had to build a squad in one summer, its because we make too many recruitment errors. But they all say they are making up for years of bad decisions and give me time, its the stock cop out......Ron Saunders had years of bad decisions behind him, but he chaged it, in getting things right....and the improvement was in evidence, way before he achieved silverware, in fact it was incremental. you have no more evidence to claim that if Dean stays anything will improve, anymore than folk claiming he should go.....that's a decision for the club and fingers crossed they get it right. His overall win ratio, does not suggest time will be his answer and if things remain the same and he rubber stamps new signings handed to him, what will change if he just accepts them, willy nilly. Tom Ross said today.....folk keep saying "we have games left to secure points".....but what is likely to change, in order to make that claim ,credible.....he has a good point. Its only when something changes, that "games left" take on a new meaning.....I look at it, and think, what can change?...how many options do we have?
  9. In these situations it has to be down to us.....its what we do in themain that counts. I fear, we are searching for something we have lacked all season, fight and desire......I can't see us stumbling across it in the next 5 games. we have made our bed and we have to lie on it.

    just goes to show, their managers know what they are doing.....building correctly, does usually unearth unfancied talent......Dougie luiz is now showing promising signs, with us. I would be surprised if the whole Liverpool fanbase criticised, more like a section, like we get on here. but Liverpool are/have not stared down the barrel of relegation, previous good decisions has given them time.....and they too make mistakes, Benteke,Carroll to name a couple.....they just don't make the amount we do.....we have to sign 10 to get a good one.

    that is my suspicion. None of us know, its all opinions. you don't have to put IMO after every quote.....we all know its the posters opinion, unless unchallengeable facts are declared
