    Hard to blame him for the goal given he was shoved but i think too often he played a simple pass rather than take on responsibility for making stuff happen. Had some good moments but they were few and far between across the whole team.

    He plays like an Under 12. Holds on to the ball too much and no clue what's going on around him.

    We have been garbage last 2 games and our front 3 have offered absolutely fuck all. They look like they've never played together before.

    Every time someone passed to him I groaned in horror. He's just not right in the head. Send him away, I don't care where, get him therapy, a brain transplant, anything. Maybe next season he'll be great but I'm sick of the sight of him this season.

    We haven't played incredibly well in attack for most of the season.  We are turning 1-0 wins into draws because our fullbacks are essential to our team, and we have a fingers crossed strategy for squad depth.

    I don't think keita is the reason why we aren't winning, but we bought him to win games, not be another midfielder that is just ok.  Shaq has been much worse than him in the last couple games, but he's not going to get the vitriol.

    That's another question, as you surely know.

    The comfortable feeling when we‘re 1-0 up has vanished. That is shite.

    One fears most of the vitriol comes from people's own issues. A scapegoat. I thought he was ok tonight, with a couple of fuckups and a couple of bits of excellence. Playing the full 90 minutes will have done him good.

    He wears a red shirt, ffs. We should get behind the lad and boost him, not slag him off like a load of old harpies.

    (and he seems to have learned enough English to have a drawn out moan at the ref. Can't be bad.)

    That's a Keita-standard post.

    Rubbish.

    Was he better than Lallana? Yes.
    Was he better than Shaq? Yes.
    Was he better than Fabinho? Probably.
    Was he better than Bobby? Definately.

    Calm down and have a word with yourself.

    Unlike you, I don't need to do that. As for your views, rubbish. Get yourself some glasses.

    I actually thought that was one of his better games.

    Dropped deep to pick it up, tried to play it forward or carry it forward.

    Outside of Mane was the only one to carry the ball draw players in and beat them.

    Not outstanding or anything but much better than what I've seen before.

    He actually started to try after their goal. I thought he started to show glimpses of what he can do. It’s a shame because he should’ve been showing glimpses earlier on in the season and now should be the time he shows more consistency.

    I expected a lot more from him. We all did.

    Bobby gave away pass after pass after pass tonight.  The Keita express just seems to be gathering a few too many passengers. Watch half way through second half when Matip advanced forward with the ball, then went to dummy a defender and got robbed. They broke and take a look at Fabinho. He looks like he's just completed a marathon and been asked to sprint another 50 yards.  There were a lot of really bad performance out there tonight, only Mane and Milner of the starters played average or better.  Shaq is another who seems recently to look like he feels because he got a couple of starts he now has nothing to prove. He has been extremely poor in the past few games.

    This thread is a joke, people piling in on an unpopular player in order to vent their anxiety over the fact we havr blown 4 points against mid table sides in a week. Keita was shit first half but overall far from our worst player, hes a soft target for a typical over reaction

    With the exception of a few games hes been well below par all season. Hasnt looked right since the world cup. We badly need an alternative because Mane is carrying the attack on his own at the moment

    We should.
    We should also talk about the established players being completely invisible.
    It is a collective thing.

    Yeah weve been very flat in the last couple of games, Virgil in particular seems to be less dominant, whether hes still not 100% I dont know but hes not been at his best recently.
