Really sad Klopp is going but looking forward to something new tbh. New ideas and a fresh approach is what's needed to maybe get a bit more out of a few who aren't delivering.

We were cruising in that game at 3.1 but then had a meltdown. I don't blame the subs as they should have slotted right in and kept the momentum going. I blame it on us being physically too weak when a side gets the energy to give it a good go. So many battles lost all over the pitch and so much possession turned over at the slightest bit of pressure.  We have got to smarten up and stop focusing on just having the ball more than the oppo. We need to be more direct.

Defence isn't good enough. We can't be conceding so easily to literally every team in the league when your strikers are as erratic as ours. Trent still can't defend so needs to lose that spot to Bradley. We could do with him in midfield tbh. Try him as a 6 if we have to but not at RB anymore. Virg wasn't the worst this season either but relying on Matip again proved to be detrimental. Konate isn't the player we need and he's had more than enough time. We really need to strengthen here or can't expect much to change next season.

I wish I shared your ethusiasm about the future mate. Those things you mentioned need fixing but I can't see our future manager being the one to fix them, definitely not our defensive problems given his playing style. He'll find the club pretty much in shambles when he arives too with no experienced staff to help him out. I hate to be negative but I'm getting ready mentally for getting back into mediocrity.
