    The Italian boys are excellent defenders. Koscielny is an excellent defender. Van Dijk and Pepe are excellent.

    Sakho is good on his day. But like you say, he constantly gets injured and it takes time for him to get going again, so what's the point in him?

    People just can't accept that Sakho is good centre back (for whatever reason) and better than four options we have right now.

    People also hate that Sakho is doing well and are praying that he makes a high profile mistake in his next game.

    No. I don't. Both offer the same average defending.

    If you assume you will never have to play one of them it doesn't matter. But that was not the question.
    And how many times have I said I couldn't care less who plays as both are average.

    This...all day.

    But our fans love to big up players who aren't in the first XI...be they on the bench, out of favour, injured, out on loan or sold.

    Alright, if you classify players into average and don't see any difference those two we simply disagree. Different opinions, fair enough

    No I haven't.

    Regularly said that we need to revamp our whole defence last season and said that bringing in Matip won't make a big difference as he needs a top partner.

    Sakho was prefereed to Koscielny for the national team. There is certainly not much between them. Would be happy to have van Dijk

    News flash, our defence was also absolutely **** when Sakho was here. People acting as if it's the same as selling Suarez and bringing in Lambert.

    People also like to rewrite history with his last few games for the club. He was great against Man United and Everton. He was awful at Southampton, at home to Dortmund and his first 45 minutes at home to Spurs was one of the worst centre back performances in recent history.

    In ANY job role, especially one that is in a high profile industry, if you go on to social media and make it pretty obvious you are criticising your employer or line manager, you'd be given final warning or fired. Clearly you have never held a management position if you don't know such basic information. So maybe think again before you try and make a sarcy comment back.
    Hey stupid, remember Cantona, Rio Ferdinand, Luis Suarez, etc
    Do your research before spewing out sanctimonious nonsense . Him and Matip could have changed our tajectory.
    Klopp has every right to do whatever he likes but people like you don't need to scrape the bottom of the barel to justify your warped view.
    3 matches for Crystal palace 3 clean sheets. Period

    It's also true that Sakho has only ever had Skrtel (brainless) and Lovren (equally brainless) to play alongside while at Liverpool. I think Matip's calming influence would've brought out the best in Sakho. We'll never know anyway, but you can spin it whatever way you like at the end of the day.

    Very fair and accurate comment. He is solid once he gets going but gets injured a lot and rusty after each injury. To paint him as rubbish by some here is stupid in the extreme

    Joe Allen is better than Wijnaldum too.

    We should just bring them all back, Sakho, Allen the lot. Miraculously we won't finish 7th, because they have become incredible since they went to Stoke and Palace.

    Some serious nut cases on here.
