    His crossing is great, but his defensive work still needs improvement. A number of under-hit or wayward passes which a better opposition might have made more of.
    Still, a more than decent back-up for Robbo.

    Sorry had to edit my response as I hadn't read your properly.

    Tsimkas looks very promising, I'm pleased we have some one to give robertson a rest, he looked like a flogged dog at times last season.

    He will have to go a long way to replace him however. Robertson is an amazing player, his athleticism alone sets him above most.

    His desire, aggression and general **** housery are an asset to the team.

    I've lost count of these appearances for ox now, where he's given the opportunity as the senior man to really take the game by the scruff and push on, show his worth, demonstrate why he should be in contention for the first 11.

    90 minutes later you wish a youth prospect had been given his slot instead.

    Agree with all of that, thats why its really good that tmiskas has turned out really good, cos robbo being who robbo is.. that will make him even more driven to be better and keep lil ole tmiskas in his place :emoticon-0105-wink::bandit:

    Bar the last sentence yeah.

    City will pay to get the lowest ranked team left and we will get chelsea.

    The scandal of how the cups have been fixed for the dopers will blow football apart when it eventually breaks.

    just on origi.

    This is imo all about work. When he is willing to work Klopp gives him a game. When he is not he doesn't. Its as simple as that.

    Origi v ac miln ran himself into the gorund in 60 mins. Last night he worked reasonably hard albeit not as intense due to what it was.

    In preseason he was OUT. he was getting 10-15 mins as an afterthought just to keep him in the eye but they guy wasn't arsed.

    Since the deadline day I would say origi has turned in and has got a kick up the arse and has worked. theres no way klopp would give him a game without showing it daily in training.

    We benefit for now imo. Is he playing for a move? maybe so. I hope he facking gets one :)

    If he does then we will have benefitted

    So we rest VVD Matip and robbo and replaced with Kostas Konate and Gomez.

    i was led to believe that we can’t have good quality back ups / rotation options :(

    we rested VVD, Matip and ROBBO. those are our no 1s. We had trent sniffling and his replacement milner sniffling and his replacement williams holding his foot and saying oow so we played an international right back as 4th choice.

    Our keeper was rested and an international keeper was played who saved a pen and sewpt up like a pro.

    Whats the beef.

    the reserve forwards scored 3 goals.

    If he was playing for a move wouldn't pre-season have been a better time - when the window was open?
    Personally I'd like to see him start to perform for us more - another viable alternative up front would be rather nice.
    Recently, Klopp seems to have just noticed that rotation is a thing - and not just for games you're not bothered about - so if he uses it more it might keep the fringe players more interested.

    you'd wonder. maybe he had given up on it and expected his move.

    The main thing is IMO klopp wouldn't pick him unless he is working hard as we've seen long periods where he's not in the picture.

    For sure though klopp is rotating a lot more early this season as in prior years the first 10 games he just wouldn't.

    It was an excellent finish, a strikers finish in fact. Moved towards the ball slightly and the turn with power in the shot was very good.

    Kelleher is as cool as a cucumber isn't he. He wasn't fooled by the stutter step which was just as well because he went the wrong way, go a second earlier and that's a goal. Very good goalkeeping.

    Konaté is only going to get better and as his starting point is already good, it's going to be great watching him grow; Gordon similarly.

    Expected Injuries Per Game
    It’s not real I made it up
    But I am using it cause we are getting nearly one injury per game
    Which I think is way higher than most

    city seem to have quite a few but they have a much bigger squad imho
