Prediction for the upcoming season ladies and gents. Guardiola going to have a serious wobble and end up in China where he belongs, City finish 3rd. Lamps will get Chelsea 4th, Spurs will finish 7th. Can see Arsenal coming second about 15 points behind us, Wolves 5th. United will sack Ole after they finish in their favored position, 6th.

1st: Liverpool
2nd: Man city (I'm optimistic going in, but who knows with these two. I think a full season of Fabinho might be the difference, but let's see)
3rd: Spurs
4th: Arsenal
5th: Chelsea (Going through a rebuild, but may do well long term with the youth introduced)
6th: Toss up between Man U, Wolves, West Ham and Everton.


2.) 26 Jul 2019 06:36:13
I see it being a very close one again between us and City, I won't sit here this time and say we'll go and win it because who bloody knows but we have as much of a chance as anybody. For all we know Everton will go and win it, in this league you just never know but imo, again, it'll be us and City right up there with the rest way behind.


3.) 26 Jul 2019 07:57:20
Wouldn’t look past City to be honest. Silva, Silva and De Bruyne can get their way out of tight games, we lack that invention when teams park the bus, we’ll be close, but not quite there.


4.) 26 Jul 2019 07:59:41
Matr - city third, Chelsea 4th - are you saying arsenal second?!


5.) 26 Jul 2019 09:32:33
Always welcome your positivity Salah mate, keep it coming.

My fear is losing ground early on, we play Norwich at home on the 9th, Chelsea in Istanbul on the 14, saints away 3 days later then Arsenal at home the following weekend.

That’s a tough start with potentially Mane missing for a few of those games.

City top spot for me again this season, they have the squad depth to go all the way again. I think we will finish second, I actually see Spurs pushing us for second place , I think they will spend this window.


6.) 26 Jul 2019 09:56:58
Salah, i don't know why mate but your post made me a little sad. I rely on your optimism to get me through the moments of doubt. don't let people put out your spark brother, its admirable mate.

We WILL win this league and i agree that it will be close again between us and city. I am a little worried about the availability of the three musketeers after a long summer and i can see us losing the community shield (and lfc fans going into meltdown) but a strong season i think.


7.) 26 Jul 2019 10:00:21
I think we'll have a slow start due to the late arrivals in the squad. Don't think we have Cities bench either. I would think we come second again this year, but win something like the FA Cup.


8.) 26 Jul 2019 10:01:32
My opinion is that Liverpool will struggle to achieve what they done last season. Klopp has done a really good job but I personally think you need to refresh parts of the team or you get "found out" I can't see us getting the points total or within 1 point of the League Champions.


9.) 26 Jul 2019 10:45:46
LIverpool 3rd or maybe even 4th this season. Man City to win the league again. Wolves and Everton to challenge for the top 6.


10.) 26 Jul 2019 10:51:10
Spurs struggled early part of last season because of WC.
they now scrambling doing some good business in the market because not strengthening their squad set them back 13 losses last season.
if we fail to strengthen, we might end up like them.
Missing Mane, Salah, Allison, Firmino is a MAJOR loss.


11.) 26 Jul 2019 11:14:12
Say

Trent gomez vvd robbo

Hendo fabhino gini

Salah firmino mane

Start, we could have a bench of

Migs
Lovren
Milner
Aoc
Shaqiri
Origi.

Thats not a bad bench. Creativity, strength, determination. A guy who scored 3 huge goals in the last 2 champions league games. And there are still

That still leaves

Brewster
Matip
Lallana
Im missing a cm?
Not to mention wilson, kent, larouci lewis. Im surprised villa haven't looked at wilson

Eds, has there been much interest in wilson and kent? Sorry if this has been asked guys.

{Ed001's Note - there has been a fair bit of interest in both but not at our asking price yet. There is always the option to loan them out available though, which is looking more and more likely.}


12.) 26 Jul 2019 18:53:23
I can see it being a close battle btw us and City however, I have this feeling that neither team will surpass or reach their points totals for last season.

Just when you thought you couldn't love this team, this club, this manager and these fans any more.

Who would give a thumbs down to this comment?
Surely not a Liverpool fan.
If you're not here to enjoy this moment, you know where you can go.


2.) 08 May 2019 08:38:21
To be honest there is a trend of comments on here that don’t merit it getting thumbs downs.

Bring back Couts and Lallana now who do you drop?

Matr1981

1.) 27 Aug 2017 19:18:30
Squad depth and rotation for certain matches is key. These lads cannot maintain this for 50 + games.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 19:23:02
Coutinho and Lallana.


3.) 27 Aug 2017 19:26:06
No1. They start from the bench until some1s form dips or an injury.


4.) 27 Aug 2017 19:31:48
Cant drop any of them, they will need to wait there chance for a dip in form/ cup game/ injury.

3 Midfield players were excellent and deserve their spot in the team.

Henderson is probably most vulnerable as of now but you can see him improving every game.


5.) 27 Aug 2017 19:36:38
There will be constant changes between Premier league games and champions league and other cup games.


6.) 27 Aug 2017 19:36:56
Henderson.


7.) 27 Aug 2017 19:41:03
It's about having depth. You don't need to have everyone on the pitch at the same time. We also have the challenge of CL.


8.) 27 Aug 2017 19:42:50
Yeah great isn't it 👌🏻.


9.) 27 Aug 2017 19:43:11
Karius.


10.) 27 Aug 2017 19:59:36
Who's Coutinho?


11.) 27 Aug 2017 20:15:29
I think Coutinho will go.

Just wondered if anyone could shed any light onto who actually decides, and how they decide what a player is worth these days, and if that player is worth paying for. I know most high value markets are driven by certain factors, interest rates supply and demand, commercial value etc.

Granted there is a great deal more revenue in English game these days due to new tv deals and all that, but how can it just be said that "Swansea value Sigurdsson at $50m" or Lukuaku is worth $75m, not saying those players are not worth what "they" say, but is it just a question of what their potential suitors projected annual revenue is and how they budget certain amounts for players, wages, development etc or is there an actual measuring stick (s) to go by to determine a players value.

Money ball, stats and all that stuff gives you a view point but doesn't guarantee real on the pitch impact, . There are people on here who say "if we could get "xxx" for $50m then we should snap their hand off but $70m is too much" wtf kind of view is that, should we even care how much organizations are willing to pay for players and their salaries, maybe yes maybe not but where does it end?

Nice one to the Eds and most of the regular posters that make this the only site id ever consider viewing regularly or even posting on, there are a huge amount of cringe worthy posts but it has to be said that is part of the addiction to this site, both seeing what some numptys have to say and how the eds and others react. I for one think that if we don't sign anyone else this window we will still be better than utd and arsenal. Grujic for me could be the breakthrough player. YNWA.

1.) 25 Jul 2017 17:54:52
I don't think anyone knows the prices anymore. We live in a world where an average full back costs 50m.


2.) 25 Jul 2017 18:06:25
I have often thought the same. Some comparisons between what players cost is crazy, and at times seems random and arbitrary, even when you take into account the length if contract and such. 50 million for Sterling and 35 million for Salah - you would have thought they were the other way around. Stones for 50 million and Matip for 4 million?!? It seems bizarre at times.

I am sure I read somewhere that Firminho is ranked as the fifth most expensive player if he was to be sold today, supposedly taking all sorts of factors into consideration. Again a great surprise. I guess a player is simply wirth what some other club are willing to pay.

The buying club decides ultimately.


5.) 25 Jul 2017 18:52:46
You are only worth what someone is willing to pay for you. That's the way it works in any sport.


6.) 26 Jul 2017 12:02:19
The buying and selling club would be the simplest answer mate. They and only they will decide on the value of a player.

Just wondered if anyone agreed with my recent thinking. After the disappointment of not making the CL last season has faded, I now feel like its actually a good thing on a number of fronts. The obvious extra time / training between PL games is there to see but to go deeper into that, Klopp now has a full season with the team he is building with more time to implement his ideas and get the squad fully in tune. If we do go on to get top 4 or better this season, playing the way he have been we will be in far better shape to compete in the CL the following season with the lads high confidence and Klopps ideas firmly engrained in the team. Not only that but you have to think the really top players will be falling over themselves to join us, the new stadium, Klopp, all that. If we had scraped into the CL this season, I doubt we would have attracted top top players as easily as we surely will next time around. The team will benefit hugely from this situation this season, one or two world class additions in required areas before next years campaign and i think we are on the verge of a new era for this club. YNWA.

It's not a good thing despite you trying to sugar coat it.
However if we end up winning the league I don't think anyone will miss it.


2.) 20 Sep 2016 19:26:40
Im not trying to sugar coat it mikey, just thought about it a bit lately, if we had made it, maybe we would have got a couple of "world class" players, but, with the tight schedule and lack of depth that the Real's Barca's City's etc we would have been stretched and may have struggled in the league and CL, making it look like a faliure. Who knows we might have gone on to win one but what i'm saying is, now that we don't have that scenario, it is a great opportunity for us to build on Klopp's methods, train how he wants us to and rest players who may need it more than others. Come the end of the season if he has got all the lads bought in to his ideas and playing consistent attacking stylish football, battering teams left right and center, we will be a very attractive proposition for both up and coming talents and established "worldies" plus our players and fans will be brimming with confidence rather than thinking what might have been, again. Football goes in cycles and I am just really hoping this is our turn to hit top gear. i'd much rather we did it this way with a guy like Klopp building a team and an idea than some Billionaire coming in buying a team and some arse like Mourinho. Doing it the Liverpool way, know what I mean.

If he's got a problem with loud noise he should go to City surely.

"theres a cracking player inside wilshire" Are you implying him and Ozil are about to make some sort of announcement?

Hopefully he can do a Giggs and still be playing at the top level (for us) for a few more years yet.

Milner for me has been a revelation, it has just clicked for him here. TAA and Gomez also have been excellent. Moreno situation has been a shame as I thought he could be very good but has had more than enough time here, hopefully for him he might go elsewhere and do well. Markovic is another.

Rest key players so they are fresh for the 'bigger' games coming up not because you are scared they get injured. Play the fringe players to keep them sharp and hungry. Not knocking the league cup but it was the last trophy we won and then KK got the boot.
