    Terrible £13.5m Shaqiri looked pretty good on Saturday.

    I liked that deal as soon as I heard about it. He's maddeningly inconsistent, but for me, you can't deny that deal was terrific value.

    I'd probably never want to rely on him heavily if I were running a top club , and wisely, Liverpool/Klopp are not.

    He was fantastic, but Klopp said something about him not knowing the structure of the team yet. Same reason Fabinho hasn't played.

    The thing is, Klopp needs to be more willing to use fresh players like Fabinho and Shaqiri even if they don't completely know the tactics. Shaqiri dominated that first half.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    As it happens, more than one purportedly professional news website reported that 'Wan-Bissaka was struck by a bottle thrown by visiting fans'. (my emphasis). Which suggests that either the bottle was gargantuan, or the Geordies' hands were of a presidential smallness.

    He wanted more control by his account.

    From the video I saw, the bottle missed him, but it was by paltry inches. Did Wan-Bissaka do something to you lot or was done by a deprived Toon?

    I would also suggest that there’s a good chance two other elements are at play. Shaqiri probably plays 80-85 Wednesday. Maybe they rested him knowing he’s going to work big minutes here and maybe play some against Napoli.

    I also would suggest Klopp rather keep some options closer to the vest until they need it. Saturday involved more like four forwards with Shaqiri allowed to float between. It also was Salah more central. Why show a new look much if you might save the tape for other sides? It might work well against other teams who bunker

    You could probably talk me into moving Monreal central and starting Kolasinac at LB

    I hope Fabinho finally get a start! It's ridiculous how they paid £45M for him just to give him a small cameo of couple minutes.

    Klopp need to give his players a chance I know they are undefeated but he is a good player and the league cup is a perfect chance to ease him to the team. If Henderson or Wijnaldum start I will lose it.

    I wish people would stop complaining about Fabinho's playtime. Liverpool haven't lost yet this season so obviously they are doing something right, and there is no reason to rush him at all. Fabinho needs to learn a completely different playing style. He will be fine.

    Well, I was never fully sold on Fabinho (and Bakayoko), but my impression of him aside - James Milner is playing the football of his life, and Hendo's their leader.
    There's no shame in being a backup to them right now.

    Absolutely. It would be ridiculous to disrupt that right now. There will be games.

    Why would someone would go insane about a new midfielder having a hard time breaking into a team that is 7-0 on the season and not looking like paper tigers at all? It would be one thing if Fabinho had looked phenomenal in preseason and his cameos, but he hasn't. Even Keita, aside from a few bright spots, has looked off the pace a bit. Those two will need some time to get used to the team and the way the rest of our midfield is playing that is just fine. If they come good we'll be happy they're pretty fresh as the season goes on.

    Shaqiri looked good against Southampton, I'm glad. Really tough 4 games ahead...but we certainly look up to it.

    I'd be down with that, but is Kolasinac healthy yet?

    I've not heard of the player doing anything provocative. But, even if he had, winging a plastic bottle at him is painfully small-time behaviour.
