We now have a DM, all our problems are solved. Added to this NK8, a dynamo of a player - mixture of Kante and Couthino, with Big Shaq as backup instead of Lallana, we are winning it this time. YNWA.

The only good fallout of the BVB game is that Klopp will have no choice but to bring in a CB now.


1.) 23 Jul 2018 08:57:13
Based on what exactly?

2.) 23 Jul 2018 09:06:25
Eh? How do you work that out xpertoyin? We lost a friendly after travelling across the Atlantic and in boiling weather. A game that featured no hendo, mane, salah or firmino, not to mention alisson.

Coz matip was injured? That still leaves lovren gomez and klavan. Not to mention van djke.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 09:13:14
Jumping the gun a little, it was a pre season friendly that neither team was taking particularly seriously. We have Lovren to comeback into the first team and plenty of cover in Gomez and Klavan (that’s assuming Matip’s injury is serious, when we’ve been told it isn’t) . Definitely not a priority position, especially with the money we’ve spent this window. Next summer the club can readdress it.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 10:53:46
OP, that may be your dream BUT reality says otherwise. Nice try, tho.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 12:16:37
yeah, let's buy players based on frindlies. great policy. they mean nothing. we beat dortmund 4-0 in pre season in 2014. we finished 6th that year.

6.) 23 Jul 2018 12:29:34
Haha, I'm pretty sure Klopp has a choice. Most likely he will base said choice on the fact we already have 5 senior centre backs and two good youngsters.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 12:30:26
And we beat Barcelona last season just before they romped to the league. we were missing half or more of our first team on the pitch at any one time.

I think we’re fine at CB if Lovren can get consistent.

8.) 23 Jul 2018 12:49:08
Well OP you'll be delighted to know that Klopp has brought in a new CB!

World cup finalist, Champions league finalist as well. Called Dejan Lovren. You'll like him, promise.



23 Jul 2018 08:51:38
I honestly don't know why Fabinho reminds me of Matip, maybe is the laid-back nature. I just hope he doesn't replicate the same injury-prone nature.


1.) 23 Jul 2018 09:45:26
Bro it's a pre-season game.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 10:56:11
How does he remind you of Matip, OP? He is nothing like Matip who is lazy, not laid-back. And you were able to deduce that he could be injury prone by him being "laid back"? Good grief! As someone said, chill out man. You're working way too hard.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 12:26:21
It's 100% that they're both bald.



15 Jun 2018 19:35:34
When Suarez left and we missed out on Sanchez, Shaqiri was my wish. Now it appears that is about to come true. He has pace and strength, and likes to take on defenders. Might need to work on having belief when things are not going his way, but if Klopp got Mane's character working for the team, why not Shaqiri.


1.) 15 Jun 2018 19:48:32

2.) 15 Jun 2018 20:46:33
X, that may be your opinion but it seems that you are trying to convince yourself more than the rest of us, that somehow Shaquiri is some boss player. IMO, he is NOT and NEVER was. Let's be honest here. If any of the top 6 were in for Shaquiri, would any LFC fan be scared? Mjority of them would be laughing at the top 6 team that got him cos we all know he is poor, lazy, out of shape and his attitude stinks. Now that he is coming here, many esp. on SM, are saying how boss a player he could be. Sorry, none of that is true. If Shaquiri comes, then I will support him BUT I hope it does not happen cos NOTHING in his time at Stoke shows he will good here esp. not his stinking attitude which for me, is paramount cos if your attitude is poor, your talent will never show.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 08:58:39
The attitude of Mané (strike @RB, sulking @So'ton) and VVD prior to joining could be compared with Shaqiris. But if you decide to join a Klopp team that kind of behaviour must surely go. Gaffer won't abide, not for a second.

Shaqiri has got some talent and if he is willing to come to LFC and work his socks off for Klopp I can see the use for him.

Only thing that bothers me is that he will get in the way of Woodburn and Wilson. But then again- if they are going to gametime they will have to compete for it.



04 Jun 2018 13:36:23
What does Wilson need to do to get a look in.
Why are they mismanaging Woodburn and Brewster?
If there is no sure way into the team from the U23 why should the kids remain?


1.) 04 Jun 2018 14:04:30
Wilson; To get a look in he needs to prove he is better than Mane, Firmino, Salah, Solanke, Ings, Sturridge, Origi, Chamberlain, Lallana or Woodburn.

Woodburn and Brewster aren't being mismanaged. Woodburn was captain of the u19s last season and star of the u23s. He's still a kid though and doesn't look ready physically.

As for Brewster, he has been injured and is now demanding first team chances and wages way before he is ready.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is proof that Klopp will happily give u21s a chance if they are good enough, physically ready, and have the right attitude. Nobody else has been convincing enough.

2.) 04 Jun 2018 14:05:06
Trent, gomez, solanke. Even Woodburn, although he featured more a season ago than he did last season. We went straight out in the league Cup and had prem teams in fa Cup, I expect they would have had a look in there.

I'm not surprised Gerrard wants solanke, he is going to be a big player for 100% definite imo. Really needs a senior run. If dom does go then brewster should get a look in, I don't see that happening if solanke stays.

Who would you guys rather have, divok origi or ryam brewster?

When the rewards are so high it must be so tempting to stick to tried and tested forwards. Being rushed in too quick is sometimes fatal. Look at Owen, burnt out by 26 and was phenomenal at first.

3.) 04 Jun 2018 14:14:05
Brewster is not even 18 and suffered a long term injury. How many 17 year old strikers are currently getting game time in a top European team?

Woodburn is also around 17/ 18 with stiff competition for places and an early exit from the league cup. He has plenty of time to breakthrough.

Wilson whilst talented did not show the required work rate defensively to force klopp to give him a crack. He’s had a good loan at Hull and will be assessed during pre season on whether he can useful.

No issues to be seen here.

4.) 04 Jun 2018 14:27:18
Wilson and Chirivella will be given a chance in preseason, to see if they have progressed enough to challenge for a place. Woodburn is still very young, 3 years younger than those two, and is simply being managed until he is ready, which I am certain he will be at some point. Brewster should be in the same boat but sadly thinks he is better than the reserves team and needs to leave, a shame as I think he could fill the role left by Solanke and Ings this season.

5.) 04 Jun 2018 14:45:52
Xpert, on the below post youve just said we need back up for the front 3, in this post you’re asking why Wilson and Woodburn aren’t getting a chance. I think you’ve answered your own question. Those 2 aren’t currenlty good enough to be back up. Nothing to do with mis management.

6.) 04 Jun 2018 15:02:34
Wilson is better than 6 of the 10 you listed, MK. Whether he’ll get games before them is another matter.

7.) 04 Jun 2018 16:21:25
To be fair, I don't even know why we are looking around the top European leagues for players. We should probably sign just proven Championship talent instead.

On a serious note, if Wilson didn't come through our youth system I bet people wouldn't be clamouring for us to sign him.

Don't get me wrong, I think he is decent prospect and would love for him to make it. But we need to be realistic here eh! I certainly don't think he has been mismanaged.

8.) 04 Jun 2018 16:53:05
Very good point well made mrsox. We wouldn't be going crazy to sign him, we would be underwhelmed.

waynechai, i thought i was the only one who noticed this trait. Coupled with his complete lack of pace, he should simply play the sweeper role and have VVD attack the ball.

For Ward and Wilson, i believe it was really poor man-management, even though i understand Klopp does not rate Wilson.

Real pity about Wilson, was interested to see what he could bring to the senior team.

And he was first choice. Seems almost like sabotage on klopp's part to the lad's career or at least poor man-management. You request that teams give your loans amble playing time, and Huddersfield who are willing to do so at the Premier league not doubt are not considered.


{Ed002's Note - I am sure it wasn't deliberate.}

Does it matter who he replaces? If he is Klopp's first choice, then he knows how to use him.

Having never played professionally, i don't understand why some players find it difficult to track back or play a different role when their team is not with the ball.

He needs amble senior team exposure or a full pre-season.

Klopp improved Firmino, Lallana, Salah, Can, TAA, and Gomez. He gave Karius exactly what he needed in taking him out of the limelight for a period while still giving him a run of games.
Be that as it may, he has made me into a believer.
On the issue of spending money, I will go with what ED002 says: forget the money.
Who will trade places with Arsenal even though they declared profit.

I am taking anything away from his attacking intent, but our forward line is just not tall enough for crosses,

Which changes would you make to the midfield? Who can give us that spark of creativity?


{Ed001's Note - it is not creativity we are lacking, it is intensity. We need to drop Wijnaldum, he takes too many touches while moving nowhere. I would swap him for Lallana, who takes too many touches but at least he is moving with the ball usually and so moving the defence around ahead of him.}
