There is a view among many Liverpool fans that we won the CL and doing well in the league solely because our defence and attack is composed of world class players. Our midfield does not contribute anything substantial and is carried by Alisson, Mane, Mo, Virgil among others.
Watching yesterday’s late kickoff I think Chelsea would have done better if they had Winji, Hendo and Fabinho in the centre of the park instead of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic, especially once they took the lead.
Will they get the recognition they deserve and be hailed by all Liverpool fans at the end of the season whether we win the big trophy or not?November 24, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1801787
As far as games go yesterday against Palace TTA was really dreadful I hope the claim that he would leave Liverpool for greener pastures has not gone to his head!November 24, 2019 at 1:08 pm #1801788
Simple answer, every single player in our regular starting eleven contributes to our success, not one passenger in sight.
Liverpool having 7 players in the World Top 30, and 5 in the CL team of the tournament (including two midfielders) is just one indicator of this.
For me, our midfield is top class and a vital element in our success.
And the only recognition that matters to our midfield is winning the biggest trophies, who cares what some fans think about them, when they keep getting proved wrong time after timeNovember 25, 2019 at 8:38 am #1802016
Well said Songman, hope the players do not read the crap spouted by some fans on Youtube and Twitter.November 25, 2019 at 8:53 am #1802024

The thing is we got a very balanced team, I’ve never seen the squad so balanced and its not just the attack and defense.
The midfield is very balanced as well, we both got players there that can attack and defend, we got a player for every role in the center of the pitch.
We got that defensive midfielder we have been crying out for years, we also got those seasoned professionals that have seen it all and know how to play different roles on the pitch, we got a goal threat there as well… we got a couple of players that can dribble the ball, another couple that can pinpoint a pass and most importantly they never switch off.
Yes some of our players could have more flair, more pace or more discipline in their game or simple be in better form but the thing is our midfield is very well balanced and they are performing at a very high level.
I talk a lot about mentality because mentality is the most important thing in sports, the leaders we have in the team right now are unmatched in recent history because they keep up that intensity 24/7, a lot of that goes to the manager but I don’t think its possible without our captain duo.
We got the holy trinity going on there..! I am so fucking impressed by this teamNovember 25, 2019 at 6:29 pm #1802194
The only thing this team is missing is a De Bryune type. Someone who can pick up the ball and run at players from centre mid. Im sure if there was a centre mid that could defend as well as dribble he would be the worlds most sought after midfielder. Theres a kid called Haverts (spelling) that plays in Germany maybe he could be converted to a midfilder who could play that role?November 26, 2019 at 10:27 am #1802308
I thought Keita was supposed to be our dribbler? Let’s hope he can finally get going for Liverpool on a consistent basisNovember 26, 2019 at 10:56 am #1802322
Our Midfield……. is better than a lot of people give it credit for.November 28, 2019 at 6:33 pm #1803140
Fab injured!! Who is going to raplace him?? We did not need any signing in summer…November 29, 2019 at 8:18 am #1803231
Sean the sailorParticipant
Rumour fabhino our for 4-6 weeks
Huge lossNovember 29, 2019 at 8:23 am #1803235
We’ve 7-8 midfielders, we’re just gonna have to cope with who we have.
Hendo/Wij back to 6.
More games for Milner, Ox and KietaNovember 29, 2019 at 9:54 am #1803266
December is going to be crucial and then the Club has to make an investment in January. Most pressing is support/replacement for the front 3 as far as I am concerned. TBH I would accept not making the next round in the CL if we can keep on winning in the league.November 29, 2019 at 4:48 pm #1803429
Without Fab our midfield will have great problem. I beleive that Milner is the best solution…November 30, 2019 at 7:17 pm #1803717
Would that be the same midfield that got to a CL final?November 30, 2019 at 7:31 pm #1803723
I’d play Gini in the ko. 6 role till Fabinho is back, cause of his stamina.
And leave Henderson, Ox, Keita and Milner to fight it out for the two more advanced
rolesNovember 30, 2019 at 8:11 pm #1803724
The 2 more advanced roles require the most stamina.November 30, 2019 at 8:36 pm #1803726
I quite liked seeing both Gini and Jordan dropping deep, they had a good understanding and it allowed Oxlade to operate further up…November 30, 2019 at 8:36 pm #1803727
Perhaps time to bring back Grujic?November 30, 2019 at 8:37 pm #1803728
