    Van Dijk, Gini, Hendo, Trent, and Robertson returned from vacations yesterday; the first 4 took the lactate test (VVD dropped off first, then Trent, Gini and Hendo finished together), but Robbo has been "bitten by something not so good" according to Klopp – his right hand was bandaged as it got swollen from the bite. Must have been a spider or another insect. He will have to wait a couple of days for the swelling to subside before returning to training.

    In bad news, Glatzel is "seriously injured" according to Klopp. Still waiting for results of the scan for a definitive answer on how long he will be out. Sepp's international clearance "unlikely" to arrive in time for the Bradford game; he will have to wait until the US tour to make his debut.

    Hmmm maybe he can replace the retired Peter Crouch as the leagues most ironically named footballer

    I hope Paul Glatzel is ok, I didn't see properly what happened but he seemed to get his studs stuck in the ground or something. Whatever happened he definitely stopped in an unnatural way. he's a great kid and I hope this doesn't hold back his development too much.

    Amen to that.  Been there, done it - I dislocated my left knee the same way when I was still playing.  Had intensive physio afterwards and got back to playing in 2-3 months, but it was pretty darn painful at the time and the knee was never 100% again.

    Just got given tix for the Napoli game in Edinburgh by the local brewery... which is nice, but it means I'm moving to Perth and becoming a St Johnstone fan for next season.

    They fly everywhere, performing stunts and mind blowing aeronautical skills. Oh wait...

    The bigger wall is just taking Chamberlain out & putting Lovren in!

    Perhaps the red arrows are for passing when under pressure/marked out of the easier passes?

    Actually, I doubt it's that simple. I'm thinking it could depend on what 'phase' of the game they're in, as we seem to have a clear strategy in games of more attacking phases followed by more possession based phases. The red arrows seem to be more attacking, looking at the more forward players, so the red arrows could be the attacking phase, but the defenders & Mignolet's red arrows don't look like they'd be attacking passes, so it's a bit confusing.
