    Why bring on Salah and Firmino, then? How was that designed to give us our best possible chance to win at Brighton? Either or both could have been crocked chasing the game. Explain the logic of this supposedly carefully thought out plan.

    I wasn't aware of the severity of the injury.

    I've already answered that exact same question with ... fucked if I know. I guess Klopp thought the game was still there to be won. At least they only played 20 mins and not the full 90. A gentle workout to keep the cogs well oiled.

    Well don't talk as if it was all a wonderful and coherent master plan designed to maximise our chances of winning at the weekend,. It clearly wasn't. It was a ridiculous jumble of confused ideas and intentions that produced a predictable mess.

    Isn't it realistically what we play? Firmino plays deeper than Salah & Mane who largely interchange who is leading the line.. You get the gist im sure!

    And we've been here before, where we've then gone and dropped points in the game we had "one eye on", the whole careful, well thought out planning becomes redundant.

    As a result of trying to not drop points in a game you shouldn't even be focusing on, you drop out a cup and lose points anyway.

    We're gonna look really fucking stupid if we drop points at the weekend

    Ah so you clearly disagree Klopp rotated without the intention of maximising the teams chances against Brighton ? As for the match then clearly the situation changed with the injuries/illness prior to match to Hendo and Lallana and then Lovren's after 5 mins. How would the game have been with these three in the team ? But you clearly feel these are irrelevent so please do carry on with your particular distortion of reality.

    Yes we will indeed. But does that mean we shouldn't at least try ? Regardless of whether it worked for another manager and different players ? Sorry I don't get that logic.

    Try and what? Try and not lose the next game, by throwing our chances in a cup?

    Simply because I disagree with your opinion it has to be Red Tinted right. Of course you are right WTF was I thinking, how on earth could there be an alternative PoV. If you want a serious discussion answer the post above http://www.sixcrazyminutes.com/index.php?threads/the-seagulls.132386/page-3#post-1784451

    WTF is wrong with you. You know exactly what the debate is about and that's not it.

    Whatever happens in the weekend we will still be top of the League. There are no guarantees in football and there are no easy away games in PL. We can't do anything but manage the Squad we got. We will have tough pats as well as easy pats and of course it is a bit down to momentum as well.

    By your logics we should have lost away to Spurs and Arsenal so we didn't have a gap. If we then beat Wolves in FA Cup and dropped point to Brighton we at least would not "look really fucking stupid". I still think those 4 Points are ok to have and would not change them for a 4th round game in FA Cup.

    Do you deliberately misunderstand what I write? What does 'jumble of confused ideas' and 'incoherent' mean? And if YOU 'clearly' think Klopp did, coherently and consistently, make all his decisions with the express aim of maximising our chances against Brighton, stop saying you have no idea why he brought on Salah and Firmino and explain the logic. Otherwise shut up winding everyone else up with your woolly thinking.

    I hate going out of the cups with a whimper. It happens time and time again. We make wholesale changes and then wonder why we are so disjointed. Origi and Sturridge just walked about for an hour up front together. We were always going to conceed a goal or two with that defense. There is simply no point of Moreno ever playing for us. Clyne would have been perfect for either full back position last night but I presume there is something more going on behind the scenes for us to just loan him out like that.

    I would have liked a cup run. I would have liked a trophy.

    I expect us to beat Brighton on Saturday. Keeper, Big Virgil and Robertson back in. Mane, Salah and Bobby up front. Three points please so we can try put last nights game out of our minds.
