If I'd had to guess I'd say Klopp reckons he offers more physical presence against what Burnley offer and is less likely to get muscled out of the game.

Yeah, if you’re going to be repeatedly pumping the ball into the box Origi’s our best option.

Fuck’s sake.

ETA: To be fair Origi’s, despite the miss, been the best of the front three.

The biggest problem with Origi is that he's useless on the ball.

He's only good running onto things where he only has one option (and not always then either, sigh), and this isn't really going to be that type of game.

TAA wasn't at fault for the freekick - the routine was awful. The defenders were visibly anticipating the pass, and it was heavy when it came. He had no time to get the shot off.

Ox has had a few decent moments, and a few meh ones, but he's not our worst midfielder; that will forever be Wijnaldum in games like these, where he stutters, hesitates, stutters some more, then passes backwards, every fucking time he gets the ball.

If we keep trying to break through with quick passing along the ground, we might have a chance.

It looks like Klopp tried to start a fight with Dyche as they went down the tunnel so you might get your wish for a new manager soon...

Do you think that saying that Klopp messes up sometimes is the same as wanting him to be replaced?

I think you took the setup for a joke about how much harder Dyche is than Klopp a bit more literally than it was intended.

Dyche does look like a sub-boss in a Guy Richie movie.

Eating worms doesn't make you hard, just daft.

It looks like Firmino is coming on, so we must be settling for a point.

Argh!!!

Fair play, that’s a fantastic save from Pope.
