    Jurgen released the Origi(nal) Kraken last night. Beast mode.

    No we weren't, god you're irritating.

    My thread was about whether he's on a downward spiral, nothing to do with it damaging us or about him leaving.

    Read the thread properly, instead of wading in with one line rubbish made from some stupid brain-dead assumption.

    His second goal is an absolute delight.

    The pass for the first one couldn't have been better.

    Excellent performance and I hope he keeps it up.

    However, Everton were undone time and time again by long balls down the middle. They have enormous problems and made it easy for us.

    Is it me , or does Divock Origi seem like the nicest footballer that ever lived?

    Never bitches about being in the bench, grateful and smiling all the time, doesn't foul, five or get into fights, seems genuinely surprised when he scores, and is always taking about the team.

    Never points at his name

    Never strikes a cool pose.

    Just smiles to himself (but not too much in case the other side feels sad)

    I still don't think he's a great player (and I didn't even see the game) but those two goals were superb. And so long as a striker is scoring it's hard to complain.

    He had no room for error on either goal, they weren't easy chances. But his first touch each time was excellent, and he took both chances brilliantly.

    He seems content to be on the bench and than makes a massive impact whenever he plays. He reminds me of ole for United (in his playing days)

    Saw this on fb, absolutely love it.

    Macca could do with hanging out with Origi.

    He had a purple patch pre the derby where he got injured where he looked like a player and this was the first time since he’s really looked elite. He was immense.

    Delighted for the guy, both as a person and as a footballer.  Different type of player altogether from Bobby and possibly not quite as effective in a front three including both Salah and Mane BUT a very good alternative option who, if he keeps on the way he's going, will get better still.

    I don't know.  When Origi has extended runs in the team he doesn't seem to do well.  It's only when he makes cameo appearances that he usually steals the show.

    Judge players on more than one game.

    Origi isn't really a great technical player... He scores goals, important goals, but he's not someone to build into your plan A.

    Origi has his use, and is our medical pigeon, he's the perfect plan B because he always scores when he needs to save the day... He just can't keep up that level for game after game.

    Nah, he was excellent before that blue cunt crocked him. Yesterday was him getting into that kind of form again.

    And against the team who crocked him in the first place.

    Poetic justice.

    If we play like we did yesterday all the time then Origi would kill it, lots of through balls and balls over the top.  But sometimes when Origi plays we don't play enough of those and play more intricate on the floor possession football which isn't Origi's type of football.

    Mark what is up with you seriously ? You’re always so angry and touchy all the time.

    For goodness sake, I wasn’t even trying to pick a fight with anyone and couldn’t even remember who started the thread until you reminded me. Lighten up mate. Life is short. By the end of this season most of us may be having the biggest celebration of our lives as a supporter of this club. So let’s take a leaf or two from Klopp and enjoy the ride shall we ?

    We talk shite all the time on these boards. Nobody’s going to agree or like what each person posts but don’t need to throw a strop over it do we ? Calm down. You’re a bigger man than that. Smell the roses. We’re top of the table.

    With the exception of the goal from widgie in the second half, you're right... None of our goals were very technical; they were all one direction passes.

    Lose Firmino and that's how we need to play.  We're a lot less flexible with Origi.  It worked great against Everton but we wouldn't beat City like that.

    Article: Thierry Henry has said that Divock Orgi can be a “weapon” for Liverpool up front if he becomes comfortable playing through the middle of the front three.

    Origi was in fine form as the Reds won 5-2 against Everton on Wednesday, scoring twice in a blistering first-half performance having been brought in to replace Roberto Firmino.

    Belgian international Origi has had a habit of delivering in big games having scored in the Champions League semi-finals and final last season, as well as winning the Merseyside Derby for Liverpool.

    Most of his good work has come from the wing, however, and speaking on Amazon Prime‘s coverage of Wednesday’s clash, Henry explained how Origi could be a serious asset to Jurgen Klopp through the middle.

    “What is important for Divock Origi now is that he played in the middle and that is a great sign of respect from Jurgen Klopp because before he was playing him on the right, on the left,” the pundit said.

    “He wasn’t sure if he could play on the line or hold the ball up to bring people in but what you saw tonight is him making those runs from the middle to the right because he is comfortable on the wing.

    “And when he masters being in the middle, bringing the centre-back on the right, and he can dribble, they’re going to have another weapon playing in the middle other than Roberto Firmino.

    “I don’t like the word sub, I don’t like rotation. You’re a squad and some will be called upon more than others because you need those players on the field but I call those guys game-changers. You need to step in and change the game.”

    Was this really better than Dortmund and Barcelona?

    It was great to see him boss it in his best position.
