I said I would wait until 5 games in before commenting on our progress. I expect some of you will be expecting me to be highly critical. well actually, I feel we have made progress to the point that we are lacking in a few areas but are not far off being a decent team. Re todays performance and result. it was always going to happen. West Ham lost opening 4 but we know they are not terrible and have some decent players. We had players suspended for errors of judgment that seem to have gone unpunished with players of other teams. We had loads out injured and a midfielder who's Dad died last week and tried to perform but just couldn't. The bottom line is we keep conceding 2 or 3 goals and no matter how hard the players try, we won't win many games when the defence is so leaky. Someone else mentioned that the kids of Holgate, Kenny and Calvert-Lewin are not yet ready. I tend to agree that to have all 3 in is asking too much. But my worry is that we still seem to also be lacking a center forward who can score goals. Tosun had a few chances again without ever looking like he would score. I am not sure what has happened to the player we signed, but the Besiktas supporters loved him? All I can say, is that when we get Richarlison back and some of the others out injured, we will hopefully tighten up. I have to say that Schneiderlin's continued presence in the team baffles me. especially ahead of the hard working Tom Davies. although I guess his maturity was a reason? But like Leon Osman has just said on MOTD we are lacking the center forward. let's hope we can tighten up and stop conceding and Tosun or Niasse can start banging them in. We had 16 shots today, that's more than in 16 games last season!

first 5 games looked easy Osman was right we've not replaced Luka.

Agree with most of that Degsy. Maybe Tosun needs a couple of games out and try richarlison in the middle.

Liverpool fan here

Why not try Walcott up top? He is a striker after all!

He's our only right sided winger perception.
