Just reading about the restructured champions league - league phase! I’m not sure if it’s being extremely poorly explained or I’m simply not understanding it but assuming I am correct the HTF can you not play the same team home and away? It’s absolute madness and absolutely geared towards fixture fixing it will cause total mayhem, another uefa corruption scandal at it’s finest.

Anything to try and prevent a breakaway by the big clubs.
Nothing more than that
Forget integrity of the competition or anything like that

Money.

28 May 2024 06:51:00
When money is the key driver Paisley then the integrity is definately questionable.

I'm highly skeptical of this new system.

Why break something that is not broken?

27 May 2024 16:25:47
Am I missing something with the new Champions League format or is there no benefit to being in pot 1 rather than pot 4.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2024 17:45:29
The benefit is you only have to play 1 other team from pot 1, instead of 2.

27 May 2024 17:59:29
It looks like an absolute shambles, it sounds like you play 8 teams - 4 games home - 4 games away - so you only play a team once either home or away not both, surely you have to play the same team home and away.

27 May 2024 19:16:07
MK everyone plays 2 from all 4 pots. 1 at home and 1 away. 8 games total. You could potentially play 10 games before the last 16.

{Ed025's Note - just another cash cow for me OK..

28 May 2024 08:33:25
That's shocking then 1kiss. sounds like a load of nonsense to me.

28 May 2024 11:40:49
Why are they buggering about with it, absolute nonsense as per fkn usual.

24 May 2024 17:55:37
If Slot likes his wingers to stay wide, does that mean he plays right footed players on the right and left footed players on the left? Does anyone know?

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2024 18:23:27
No mate. Minteh is left footed and played RW for Feyenoord this season. Paixao is right footed and played LW.

24 May 2024 19:12:25
Thanks MK.

26 May 2024 12:55:16
He plays stengs as the number ten roll who was previously a winger and is left footed maybe Harvard or mo could do this but he likes pressing machines in the roll so maybe Dominick could we play mo at striker and move Nunez on but who would buy Nunez and arne plays with tall strikers.

28 May 2024 06:54:52
It's just the Super League in disguise really.

The powerful clubs will get the favourale draws as well.

I don't think this format is going to benefit the so called "smaller" clubs. tis is all about the bigger clubs getting their cake and eating it. just so that Uefa and Fifa can prolong the super league.

24 May 2024 10:10:08
Looks as though Gomez will stay! Very happy with that to be honest, can cover a lot of roles accross the back line.

I wonder if he will be offered a preferred role as CB with Matip leaving?

Agree7 Disagree0

24 May 2024 11:14:23
Love Gomez, but I would have thought he would have brought in much needed funds towards transfers. £30-40M for a 3rd choice RB and 4th or even 5th choice CB would have been great business. Everyone wants a new centre back and Sepp to be given a chance, we have to be ruthless aswell if that's the case.

24 May 2024 12:25:55
He doesn’t show the hunger in his personality for me to be a nailed on starter, good utility man…. but he’s stagnated for me and could of been sold also.

24 May 2024 12:51:15
There’s no way of knowing who will stay or go before the window even opens. I think that Gomez might be protected more in Slots system though. He could start as a full back and become part of a back 3 when one full back inverts. I’d honestly prefer he goes and is replaced by someone like Pacho or Inacio as a CB/ LB option. But if he stays I do think he’ll be better under Slot. Klopp’s system was too technically demanding of him as a LB and too expansive for him as a CB.

24 May 2024 12:59:56
He’s a Jack of all trades master of none! I think he’s handy to have round but not a game changer if a good offer came in I would sell.

24 May 2024 13:36:35
Personally, I think he is a decent squad option and every team needs a Swiss army knife of a player. Like a Milner/ O'shea type who won't be expected to start every game but is able to slot in at any time in a number of different positions without a drastic drop in quality.

24 May 2024 15:32:49
Is this the same Gomez who partnered VVD and was being lauded as having his best season only to then be injured? Joe certainly has the talent as he has shown it on previous occasions. To sell him off on the assumption Pacho or Inacio would instantly be an upgrade seems a bit odd. Also, do we not have to consider HG quota?
Lastly, Jude, I'm not sure the club need to raise 'much needed' funds. From what has been said, the club is in a decent position financially.

24 May 2024 18:16:29
I think he suffers making decisions if he has no time he is ok but i would take the money and move him on for so many reasons like ball watcher, poor passer of the ball, reaction slow i thought he was excellent before his injuries and i think he may be better of going some where and plays every week no disrepect to Joe Gomez .

24 May 2024 21:42:07
Stuie, if people set aside their blind loyalty, Gomez hasn’t played consistently well for several years since that title winning season. The injuries seem to have taken their toll. We need to move on and stop clinging to his good season in 2019/ 20. In a few months time that was 5 seasons ago! It says it all that people still bring that up because there is absolutely nothing since then to suggest he’s a top player.

{Ed025's Note - spot on MK..

24 May 2024 23:42:13
Exactly MK, we were all excited about Gomez's future at CB that title winning season but the reality is he's probably had one good game there against City at Anfield since then. And students we do need to raise money, since when are we City or Chelsea? As far as homegrown is concerned we're fine. Were doing what i've said for years we should do and let our Academy look after that side of things with the likes of Kelleher, Trent, Bradley, Quansah, Baj, Jones and Elliott.

25 May 2024 07:44:16
He was doing very well this year when called upon and had been called back up to the national team. I think he all knows his limitations and plus points. Personally I think he deserves a chance in the new system being capable at full back and CB makes him a good option, if not a starter. There are several others in the squad I would rather loose. Plus as stuey says there's a HG quota that he is a part of. He's never complained when not injured so I still think there is a place for him.

25 May 2024 08:03:46
No one is saying he is a 'top player's MK, as subjective as that is and despite him being called into the England squad. my point is, you are clamouring for these new defenders and favouring selling a young English defender who is comfortable playing across the back line and has proven in the past (despite what you say) that he is more than capable of playing when needed. Is he a VVD replacement? Of course not. But is Pacho or Inacio? Why sell a perfectly reasonable player who can fill in across the back line and has never grumbled or kicked up a fuss?
Nothing to do with blind loyalty, more common sense than anything.

25 May 2024 09:09:03
Westwood the man is just not good enough he needs moving on for his own sake he is waisting his career sat on the bench when he could be playing for a west brom, ipswich, hull city every week mate . We can not live in the past we have to move forward or we will stand still and go back to the early 1990s to early 2020s . There are young men waiting their chance so don't stop progress by blind faith.

25 May 2024 13:49:37
Im not in favour of selling Gomez just to put towards transfers in defence. its towards transfers for ALL positions. I just want the positions we can improve upon in the 1st 11 strengthened. If people we can realistically cope without getting sold helps towards that goal then i am all for it.

25 May 2024 14:24:19
I must’ve missed the good performances from Gomez this season. He’s stank the place out every time for me and I’ve watched every game other than the 3pm KO’s.

It’s not about clamouring for new players. I’ve been very vocal on here that Quansah and Van den Berg deserve chances. It’s about putting sentiment aside and improving weak links in the squad. For me the two weakest links were Matip annd Thiago for fitness issues, and next in line are Gomez and Tsmikas for ability issues. Quansah already effectively replaced Matip so replacing Thiago, Gomez and Tsimikas would be my main priorities. Then just replacing anybody who leaves like Diaz or Salah for example if the interest in them is legitimate.

25 May 2024 19:17:42
What you mean to say albeydered is the man is not good enough in your opinion. Your opinion is not fact. Professional successful football managers have deemed him good enough to be the longest serving member of our squad, including one of the most objectively successful managers we have ever had. I have watched every game this year including the 3pms and I can tell you he has been no worse, in my opinion, than the supposedly world class VVD and next best thing Quansah despite playing across the whole backline, never having a steady position or defensive partner. Still has a place for me.

26 May 2024 02:01:08
Gomez is fine a back-up CB and utility across the back line.
He also has a great personality and charachter that seems to fit the club. I always prefer to keep guys like that. The narrative seems to be that he is a spent force, I don't see that at all.

26 May 2024 06:35:47
Spot on faith, plus HG. Instead of potentially spending a fortune on 3 separate players to provide backup across the line we have one international quality player when allowed to build up his form, that is a proven winner and doesn't complain when not playing. He allows us to to move on Tsimikas, loose Matip without being overly concerned. definitely still has a place.
Pretty sure he's not allowed to leave until he scores either :)

26 May 2024 12:52:44
We must be watching another team guys, Gomez was our best defender this season and played everywhere, he was also at the club before Juergen and is over by fans, why would we sell him crazy talk here.

26 May 2024 13:05:18
Gomez has been ok at times but I don't think he's good enough personally.

26 May 2024 15:10:08
I don't get how anybody can be against Gomez considering how well he did this season? Am I missing something here? He's been been there when needed and played brilliantly, I don't get it? He's one hell of a player, one who we'd be stupid to offload. Keep at all costs in my opinion.

27 May 2024 10:08:34
Agree Salah.

Gomes may not be perfect but the talent pool at centre back these days is sparse. Any decent young players are scooped up by Madrid, PSG, Barca, Bayern or City.
Gomes is a great squad player, never moans, never unsettled, versatile and dedicated.

23 May 2024 16:31:11
Not LFC related, but i was wondering if it's just me who's a bit miffed at the fact that Bayern Munich are courting Kompany for the managers job? I mean, he gets Burnley relegated from the prem, then is offered what could arguably be a very prestigious job in Europe. I don't get it. Talk about rewarding failure.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 May 2024 17:23:51
Couldn't give two f@? ks to be honest Bulk.

23 May 2024 17:51:33
I think it shows there severe lack of quality managers about at the present time.

23 May 2024 19:27:37
Daft appointment if it does happen but at the same time I'm not bothered about it, like you say, not Liverpool related so personally I don't care. There is a good point, if they get him the chances of them doing well will be very slim so BL might win the league again.

23 May 2024 20:49:25
I think I could be in charge of Bayern and get them second/ third. Kompany is way down the list for them but so many turned it down, he’ll do ok but if Leverkusen can keep their team together it’ll be an interesting season.

23 May 2024 22:00:53
Bulk, he'll be sacked long before Christmas so don't worry too much.

24 May 2024 07:47:52
I'm with you Bulk. I'm actually quite intrigued in the whole manager merry-go-round that is about to happen.

And whilst there might be a perceived lack of what some would call world class managers out there, I too am surprised that Bayern have chosen Kompany.

I've said it before. people in charge of football, such as owners, members of the board, rule makers, etc. Seem to live on their own planets at times.

24 May 2024 11:04:55
With United and Chelsea looking for new managers too, I wonder if this summer will prove to be a very good one for us getting Slot before the rest.

24 May 2024 13:23:47
Any now Barcelona are joining in with the manager fun and games!

24 May 2024 15:46:42
At this point I’m happy we got Slot early as he was near the top of Bayern’s list and Barca’s list. I think we can break the popcorn out and laugh at who United appoint.

24 May 2024 18:19:11
I hope he gets the job at Bayern Munich he has done a good job bringing through Burnley kids. pity it was too much for them in the prem they maybe needed another season in championship they try to play football though.

26 May 2024 02:02:02
personally think Kompany is a good manager. maybe this is too soon for this kind of move, but I think he can do well there.

27 May 2024 10:09:36
Miffed? I couldn’t give a monkey’s.

Good luck to him, see how many fish he can shoot in that barrel.

22 May 2024 21:46:08
It’s somewhat comforting to see Atalanta dismantle Leverkusen as easily as they did to us.

Their press and shape looks so difficult to play through.

Leverkusen look as clueless trying to create as we did.

Agree6 Disagree0

23 May 2024 03:12:15
We missed chances and looked out of sorts vs Atalanta. But equally I'd not see a team press us and so effectively cover man to man as they do. they were very impressive.

23 May 2024 05:57:02
They press so high, aggressively and efficiently it's great to watch. Reminds me of how we were in Klopp's early years with us. So effective when done properly and the opposition can't be having a a mediocre game, like Leverkusen and us were both guilty of, or you just get pulled apart. Wished we never stopped.

23 May 2024 16:31:59
Ah remember the days when we used to.

26 May 2024 02:02:47
Reusch - I don't think we pressed in the same way Atalanta do. That was some really impressive man marking on steroids lol.

22 May 2024 21:11:24
Bruno G would defs be my first choice for the DM role given his release clause and Newcastles FFP issues. Him and Mac in the middle would be unreal, tenacity and quality in abundance.

Have to say though watching Koopmeiners tonight he doesn’t look bad although seems to prefer playing in the 8 and reminds me of Mac. Ederson alongside him looks good too as a more defensive minded player.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 May 2024 21:54:55
100% agree if there is any possibility of getting Bruno G I think we pay the money and bring him to Anfield! If we were willing to splurge over 100m + for Caicedo then surely Bruno is worth the money. However on planet earth I don’t see this ever happening!
