Quite obvious our midfield is good but not creative enough we can run and pass sideways all day but we need someone who can pick a pass. klopp is very reliant on the old crop, I want to see fabihno and Keita in that midfield. really hope they can adapt. I am surprised they haven't as they have quality . Would be nice too have Shaq in the team in front of 2 midfielders as he is our most creative spark.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 21:11:10
Shaqiri to fill the Coutinho hole all day. He’s looking like more and note of a bargain every time he plays.


2.) 20 Oct 2018 21:48:56
He is needed for that bit of magic give him protection with 2 midfielders behind and let him pick passes make runs, the usual front 3 could benefit from his vision and craft, I also think Keita should b given a go there too run at people an bring others into play would b good for his confidence too free the shackles an have licence too attack , shame we never got fekir obviously.


3.) 21 Oct 2018 13:07:50
Maybe against the smaller more stubborn teams we need to play shaqiri in stead of third misfielder.

We will click, there were moments in the past 2 and a half season with klopp where we would not click as an attacking team and lost or drew games. I think we were 9th after that second int break last season.

This season the defense is supporting when we aren't scoring 3-4 goals. The goals will come im not worried.

Eds I definitely think we need different options up front, maybe a target man for certain games, is the young lad taiwo awonyi anywhere near up to it as this year he has progressed more with the club he on loan at, from what I can see he looks tall strong quick an potentially a nuisance, what's your opinion on him.

{Ed002's Note - Awoniyi will go on loan again - getting a Work Permit has proven not possible. I suspect the club will look to Anderlecht as the preferred option but other sides such as Brugge and Standard Liege might be interested in a loan.}


1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:25:59
That does make sense Ed. He did quite well in Belgium, would playing for a more higher profile team help get a permit Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but one I suspect will be a struggle to keep in the longer term. He will go on the pre-season tour of the United States and then on loan.}


2.) 17 Jun 2018 16:35:20
Ed2 are the work permit committee pissed off with us? The only reason I ask is because of how we got Grujic his by lying and I can only imagine we aren't in their good books because of that?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool abused the system so they were certainly at the time. The whole Grujic situation has been a terrible mess but it will soon be over.}


3.) 17 Jun 2018 17:17:35
How in demand is ..............

{Ed002's Note - This is the page - we are not going to answer questions about random players.}


4.) 17 Jun 2018 17:22:42
Interesting Ed2, thank you!


5.) 17 Jun 2018 17:41:56
Cheers Ed.


6.) 17 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Why can’t Solanke be the target man?


7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:26:49
He is better behind a striker apparently slightly deeper that's where he plays for England youth teams.


8.) 17 Jun 2018 19:44:49
Ed002, will it be even more difficult after Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not for people like Awoniyi.}


9.) 17 Jun 2018 21:09:46
Sure, but I’m mean will the permit panel be a bit overwhelmed when the EU players have to apply?

So we are after fraser of Bournemouth I think he is very useful in rotation of front 3, we should also be looking at john McGinn of villa great player for midfield an a nice little scottish trio like the old days .


1.) 12 Nov 2019 13:18:11
Are you comparing Dalglish and souness to mcginn and frasier?


2.) 12 Nov 2019 14:49:28
McGinn is a great wee player but no way he will move to sit on our bench. I think VIlla look good to stay up and he will stick with them for a few years before moving to a mid table club.

Red Sandman.


3.) 12 Nov 2019 14:52:36
No but I am definitely saying andy robertson is and it would be nice to get some quality Scots in the team to keep him company and also Robertson was seen as mediocre when he signed for us, look where he is now best left back in the world .


4.) 12 Nov 2019 15:02:16
I really like McGinn, But Man Utd were quoted something like '£50mil' before he'd even played a premier league game. Given how important he is to their squad he'd cost a fortune and we're stacked in the midfield. I'd rather just see how the Ox and Keita develop and spend the money elsewhere.


5.) 12 Nov 2019 15:14:38
I get your point Hailstones - and if there is one Scottish player who I think has the potential to step up their game and become a fantastic player, it is Mcginn.

I just don't see it happening as he wouldn't move to sit on our bench.


6.) 12 Nov 2019 15:56:01
Ok guys get your point, but what if god forbid milner leaves, or keita doesn't up his game an kick on like we all hoped, if we looking at a midfielder in summer mcginn would be great.


7.) 12 Nov 2019 16:32:46
hailstones, then we will deal with that when and if there is a sniff of what your hypothetical scenarios comes to the fore. Until then, chill out, man. Ever heard of the saying, "We will cross that bridge when we get there"?


8.) 12 Nov 2019 18:01:58
Yeah but I am permanently window shopping seeing who we should get too improve an I like mcginn probably more so than fraser of Bournemouth .


9.) 12 Nov 2019 19:17:59
Ah well Haily if you like window shopping that much then I can't argue with that, lol. Shop away, man!


10.) 12 Nov 2019 21:00:16
Ah, if only we had kept Charlie Adam, we could have become a team of Mac's once again!


11.) 13 Nov 2019 17:41:23
Sean Dundee, too.


 

 

03 Nov 2019 13:41:32
Ed 02, you have stated about Salah in the past that he and his agent have basically touted his services but was laughed out of town with his demands, surely if you know about this our players and managers also do which is not healthy for any team.

{Ed002's Note - The club are well aware of what his agent has been doing.}


1.) 03 Nov 2019 14:53:48
Not sure why people are too bothered about this. Salah is the most expendable of our front 3 and I'm sure the club will have suitable replacements in mind. If Salah wants to leave, let him leave. No point holding onto a player whose head is elsewhere.


2.) 03 Nov 2019 15:39:43
To be honest mate, I think we would be sound without him, also whilst we can I would get the silly enough money we can for him an go all out for timo werner, i don't like the idea of players not fully committed with one eye on moves away, I can see him going back too Italy anyways at some stage .


3.) 03 Nov 2019 15:47:46
I'd go for both Werner and Sancho to replace Salah and Shaq.


4.) 03 Nov 2019 16:29:40
Thanx for the reply ed, I think with that in mind the club would have half an eye on waiting for the right time too sell him an can see that being at the end of this season, I am a big fan of his but I would rather have players who are 100 percent committed.


5.) 03 Nov 2019 16:29:40

6.) 03 Nov 2019 18:10:27
A club will have to be willing spend huge amounts on him and currently there's no obvious indication that any of the handful of teams who could afford him are in the market for a 100mil+ winger who's creeping up on his 30s. Barcelona and Madrid have just invested similar money this summer on griezzman and hazard, bayern seem to hold sane as their number 1 target while gnabry and coman could kick on this season. Coutinho will likely be at either bayern or Barcelona also while the possible availability of neymar or mbappe might see salah not even be a major target for the top teams. I couldn't see him swapping us for the French league to join PSG as I think he's not that type of person. And would he see possibly juventus for example as a good move?

I don't know any of the info at all and only base my prediction from the EDs views on salah and his agents business. Of course the minute a player hits peak and is one of the world's best it's common to expect his agent will try to get the best situation for him and his player. Unless a powerhouse like Madrid or Barcelona show serious desire for salah I can't see him going to a weaker league just for money reasons. He seems to have a huge desire to always be the best player and takes big interest in individual accolades. I'm sure he'll be eying a ballon d'or as his next goal with Messi and Ronaldo dominance coming to an end. Going to Italian or French league would be a step down in his career and I don't think he'd swap that for money personally but I may be very wrong.


7.) 03 Nov 2019 19:57:32
People need to be careful what they wish for. Salah has been huge for us, some short memories at times, forget the bs end of the day he's a great player for the team and has been since he joined but suddenly we'd be ok without him? come off it. Sure if we got mega money for him and went all out for a replacement, that could happen but what if that replacement didn't work out? it happens, let's enjoy him whilst we have him.

If he wants out? so be it, end of the day the best thing here is, he's not letting that affect his time on the pitch, if it was I'd be saying get him out immediately but he's still giving it his all so we have no room for complaint, whatever goes on in the background is none of our business.

I know nothing but I get the impression he's very happy at Liverpool, that'll do me.


8.) 03 Nov 2019 20:30:23
People really need to get over this, it’s been done to death.

How on Earth anyone thinks over 50 league goals across 2 seasons is expendable is beyond me. To replace you’re talking an mbappe type signing which is not going to happen.

Who cares if he’d like to move at some point? As long as his performances on the field don’t suggest such, i've no qualms with Salah whatsoever.


9.) 03 Nov 2019 21:46:12
Spot on, Shaq and Salah, people had better be careful how they go on and on about this "We will be okay or won't suffer w/ o him" stuff when it comes to Salah. IMO, we will regret it big time should we hastily let Salah go, Big Time. I think have this naive notion co we have been spoiled by Klopp and these boys with their production over the years that if one is angling for a move, we can then just dismiss his level of production. Do that at your own peril, IMO.

If people think it is easy to replace Salah (who has scored over 75 goals in all comps. since he came here) with a drop of a hat then you are gravely mistaken. IMO just having one of our front three will improve any team. We have the luxury of having ALL three of them and some of us are acting as if we won't feel Salah's absence that much. Trust me, we will and we should do all we can to keep him here until it is indeed time for him to go on our terms, not his.


10.) 04 Nov 2019 09:50:42
Have to agree, would rather the club weren’t in a position where we have to find a replacement for Salah

Ok he has his off games but it’s not just his goals etc, it’s also the mind set of the opposition, when he’s in the team it gives the opposing manager a real dilemma on how to approach the game.


 

 

31 Oct 2019 11:28:44
I must say naby keita has been a huge let down, both in quality an attitude I expected way more just even in the type of character he has . Honestly I can't see him progressing with us and can seeing him out the club by the start of next season the way he is going .


1.) 31 Oct 2019 12:33:18
This feels like an overreaction, yes he's been disappointing so far but he's also been incredibly unlucky with injuries. They've greatly hindered his development and more importantly not allowed him the time needed to adapt. Unless his 'attitude' is impacting other players I don't see why we should sell him at would probably be a huge loss. He's still only 24.

We're stacked in the midfield so if there's one thing we can afford him, its time.


2.) 31 Oct 2019 12:34:20
I can't really argue with that. I've seen nothing otherwise to defend the lad, young Curtis seriously showed him up when he replaced him that's all I can be sure of. We mention attitude but there's no talent there, there's just nothing but a poor touch, poor passing and he's weaker than academy players. I thought he was going to replace Gini/ Hendo but he's a million miles away atm.


3.) 31 Oct 2019 12:34:41
What’s wrong with his attitude?

He’s been unfortunate with injury, but to say he has bad attitude is unjustified he’s just trying to work for the team.


4.) 31 Oct 2019 13:08:10
I agree with hailstones . Keita did have issues back at Leipzig and ed002 did warn us about him . Klopp is not one to wait too long .


5.) 31 Oct 2019 13:14:37
I really want Kieta to work out for us and I really hope that this new injury is just a niggle and doesn't actually keep him out. If he was a UTD player in the same situation we would be ridiculing them for what a waste of money. At the moment it is showing to be a big loss of 50 million plus. Hopefully he can show soon enough that this isn't the case.

{Ed002's Note - He has learned enough English to be allowed to play now.}


6.) 31 Oct 2019 13:18:15
This fan base has had such positive energy this year, players aren’t being slated for Minimal stuff, I don’t understand why Naby is being targeted!

He had a good game against Genk, arsenal wasn’t great but again he is building up fitness around a team that has never played before, then got injured!


7.) 31 Oct 2019 13:45:10
I agree Southern. It’s too early to be hammering him the lad has real quality but for whatever reason it’s not working out for him right now. I bet he doesn’t even feel part of the team yet because of the injuries and language issues.
Give him time he was head and shoulders the best player in Germany a few years back let’s help the lad get there for us.


8.) 31 Oct 2019 14:10:28
Haven't seen anything to suggest he is good enough, he was praised for his performance against Genk but I thought he showed a lack of desire to track bacj, don't think klopp will wait around on him to come good and we may be better recouping some of our losses on him this summer.


9.) 31 Oct 2019 14:42:12
i don't think he played well against Genk or last night the watching of the man in the box has he ran to inside the 6 yard box was very poor. But i don't think the midfield last night was balanced at all I only think 1 of Ox Nabby or Lallana but last night had all 3.


10.) 31 Oct 2019 16:22:26
I am not having a go at all at naby, I still want him too succeed but you have too have desire hunger and belief in what your doing, the German league is weaker than ours but he looked awesome for Leipzig and everyone was salivating at the prospect of him playing in our midfield trying too continue what he was doing in Germany, but he looks like he is in 2nd gear with 3 others too go up, I hope he establishes himself but I am very dubious at the pattern of his career so far with us. I would much rather see curtis Jones in there .


11.) 31 Oct 2019 18:06:31
Your not having a go? Read your first post it's way OTT and really hope by the end of the season Keita proves what a good player he is. What do you know about his attitude?

{Ed002's Note - Keita has shown serious attitude issues in the past. He took far longer than necessary to learn the language and that gave the club an issue they had to try and cope wth. There are multiple problems that he has caused. It was a mistake buying him and paying well over the odd in transfer and other fees. There were issues of vast embarrassment that would be seen as totally unacceptable. Try not to bleat about posters who clearly have a better understanding than you do about the subject.}


12.) 31 Oct 2019 18:34:21
I wouldn’t give up on him. Mane supposedly had a bad attitude. now he has one of the best on and off the pitch.
Keita has shown in parts how good he can be, and has never looked 100% fit.

Appreciate we don’t want another Lallana or Sturridge, but it seems like just niggles repeatedly which he should be able to overcome.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Mane who has never caused 10% of the issues Nobby has caused.}


13.) 31 Oct 2019 19:34:09
Markp08 I have too call it like it is mate and he has flattered too deceive, I liked the player we were buying, but from what i have learnt on the pitch and off he is not wat I expected, I want all our players too come good an always have an hope he seriously proves me wrong but the vibes I am getting aren't great, he has too pull his finger out simple as that .


14.) 31 Oct 2019 20:07:59
ok Hail, but how can he pull his finger out when he is injured? He has only been here just over a season and I still expect him to come good. Many players in the team have had their ups and downs, inc Hendo, Gini, Fabs I think its still too early to make up your mind on Keita.

If he causes problems going forward and by the end of the next season if he is not a regular.


15.) 31 Oct 2019 21:05:33
I love the type of player that was at Leipzig, playing on the edge, committing people, looking dangerous, whilst also great defensively. Yes injuries but the others aren't injured as much as him an I don't want another sick note, we want lads who are chomping at the bit to win games on the pitch, I suppose I am officially challenging his desire all round off the pitch and on .


16.) 31 Oct 2019 23:47:41
Hang on a minute was it not just 10 days ago when Naby Keita and changed the game vs Utd to the point of many in the fan base (esp. on SM) slating Klopp for not starting him early? Was it not a week ago that he had a solid perf. vs Genk and again, many wanted him to start vs Spurs? Now that he has a poor game (of which he was not the only one who played poorly), he should now be trashed and binned?

Seriously, some people need to make up your minds now, for real. You don't get to pick and choose when a player is good and should be kept and as soon as things go bad, he is crap and needs to go. Either we accept the player regardless of his flaws cos we believe he can do well for us overall OR we accept that he is crap regardless of his qualities and then we bin him and move on. It definitely cannot be both, IMO.


17.) 01 Nov 2019 05:02:24
To be fare to him when he was fit and had a string of games under his belt he showed his worth. Bad attitude and trouble is another matter to judge him on. If we really feel that side to him doesn't warrant him being there i agree on cutting our losses. Talent-wise the kid has something in him.


18.) 01 Nov 2019 07:41:36
Fabinho's inspector gadget legs 😂 can't think of a more perfect description! Im so glad we got him when we did. I feel Man City would have been sniffing around him as a Fernandinho replacement if we hadn't.


19.) 01 Nov 2019 08:56:52
Just my opinion but history has shown us that players we initially slate can come good. Hendo and Lucas are 2 that immediately spring to mind. I couldn’t stand them at first. I guess the main difference is attitude as those 2 always tried and remained professional. I’ll continue to back him but only if he sorts out his attitude issues . My guess is he’ll get 1 more season at best and if the issues remain he’ll be sold. Klopp doesn’t seem to stand for it, remember sakho.


20.) 01 Nov 2019 12:44:00
Spot on, OKD. After all, it is the same Keita that was killing it at RBL for two seasons. He was unplayable and even Bayern wanted him. Are they mugs too? The boy has got ability if not, he would not be here.


 

 

22 Sep 2019 07:57:55
Midfield is definitely an area that will be strengthened next when we next go into transfer market, so I have too say James maddison should be one of the first to go for, that lad is a gem .


1.) 22 Sep 2019 09:07:37
Fantastic player but if Leicester managed to swindle what they did from United for Maguire, I wouldn’t like to think what they’d try to get for Maddison.
Perhaps they knew of United’s sheer desperation but the gulf between Maddison and Maguire is so large that they’d surely demand a lot more for the latter.


2.) 22 Sep 2019 09:19:19
Very true his price now would be silly, just goes too show how much quality is in lower leagues though and on flipside how stupid transfer market is at minute.


3.) 22 Sep 2019 09:28:14
Think we could see a few midfielders move on at the end of this season. Lallana, Grujic, Wilson and possibly Milner. If Naby doesn’t find some kind of form and fitness this season then who knows he could even be at risk. We have young Harvey Elliot but again next season he’s only going to be 17/ 18 years old so still a kid. I can definitely see at least 1 very good established midfielder being signed.


4.) 22 Sep 2019 10:50:11
I’m not sure that our analytical approach to transfers will marry up with Maddison’s price tag?
I’m more in favour of adding an added goal threat, allied to industry of course, next year.
I still maintain that there was a case for doing so in this Summer’s window, look at the numbers of goals that Man City have already totalled.
They may get de-railed now and then but they’re handing out real hammerings on a regular basis.


5.) 22 Sep 2019 11:02:42
Personally I've been quite impressed with Buendia so far. He needs to prove it over the full season but he would at least come without the British premium price. He's also only 22, doesn't take on silly shots (Maddison hadn't scored in over 30 attempts before yesterday), and has more bite than most attacking midfielders in the league. His decision making is superb to boot.


6.) 22 Sep 2019 11:15:21
I'd leave maddy and go for that Kai Havertz lad.


7.) 22 Sep 2019 11:44:56
Man City’s goal difference will always be higher than ours no matter what we do, they have a style and quality to dissect teams that is largely impossible to replicate. We are a very different, but equally as good team.
As for City’s goals scored column, Watford should be docked points for bringing the game into disrepute with that performance yesterday. Their aggregate score against City since Pep came in reads: 3-35.
Flores should have sacked himself as well. I knew he’d roll over after that comeback performance against Arsenal.


8.) 22 Sep 2019 11:49:05
Leicester done a great bit of business with Norwich and they surely would be looking a kings ransom if he wanted to move. He would cost a fortune, unless he ran down his contract 😉😉. For the money, I don't think he would have the same impact on the team as VVD and Allison.
Saying all that, at the age of 22, he could play 10 years in our midfield, so maybe the price tag might be worth it?


9.) 22 Sep 2019 12:02:56
I have too say if we could get kai havertz, I would definitely rather have him as in world football in his position he is seriously hot property, thing is though if u think maddison is expensive havertz would command ridiculous money .


10.) 22 Sep 2019 12:42:39
I don't know. I have a sneaky feeling that Grujic has developed sufficiently enough to provide a valuable option in midfield. He may yet end up staying with us long-term despite all that has happened.


11.) 22 Sep 2019 21:43:00
He would be a luxury player. Not the type of midfielder that would fit into our style. I agree that he's a top player, lovely goal on saturday. With milly maybe leaving, id expect a player more of his mould?

Keita will come good.


12.) 22 Sep 2019 23:37:52
Maddison Brooks and Rice replacing Milner lallana Wilson Guric and Keita, hendo Gino fab ox and the above lot along with shaq new midfield options.


 

 

15 Sep 2019 22:10:57
How blessed are we best centre back in the world arguably best left and right back, best defensive midfielder ( name me one better ) , best front 3, hopefully when allison back fit best keeper in the world, that's a lot of serious quality, too think were we have come since klopp took over and the levels reached makes me sit back and think wow! What a ride doubters too believers!


1.) 15 Sep 2019 22:25:13
Too right, hailstones. But most importantly, we have the best manager in the world.


2.) 15 Sep 2019 22:45:48
Best cb fine, best lb maybe, but Trent isn’t the best right back. I wouldn’t swap him for anyone, but he’s not the best in the world as he stands, his defensive game needs improving. Argue kante is still better than Fabinho in his role, but fabs is still great and such a good signing. I’m not a doubter at all, I’m just realistic.

We have a fantastic team, with amazing players and an amazing manager, but the team is built for the way we play. Fabinho sits in to cover the gaps, the other two mids cover the full backs when they go forward. Bobby allows mane and salah space to run and creates. In our system, it’s hard to pick ‘better’ players, but it doesn’t mean they are best in the world. I would rather mane over Ronaldo, but doesn’t mean mane is better than ronaldo.


3.) 15 Sep 2019 23:28:46
Is it just me or has matip been better van dijk so far this season?


4.) 15 Sep 2019 23:42:04
I would argue that we don’t have many players who are the best players in their position. Perhaps Virgil and Alisson. But the rest are the best players for Klopp’s system. They may not be perfect players but they are perfect for this Liverpool team.


5.) 16 Sep 2019 00:01:47
Yes g1 it seems the way that klopp trusts certain players too make the machine function the way it does, as I said earlier when klopp took over we were a joke defensively no identity no confidence no direction no belief it shows how good klopp is and the team around him, also I must say kante is insanely good but aerial ability and being able too slot in defence just pips it for Fabihno Haha.


6.) 16 Sep 2019 00:34:13
I think its perfectly put g1dgo, could n't have been explained better . not taking anything away from the players but all credit to Klopp and his coaching team they put the delicate jigsaw puzzle together piece by piece

Saying that, we need to win more to justify the hard work . so far its only one trophy, yes its a big one but Rafa showed us and the world you can win it on shoe string budget and an ageing squad . If Klopp leaves tomorrow, premier league history will show that Mourinho disastrous 2 + bit years at united were more successful that Klopp years at Liverpool.

Kante ran all over Fabs in the Supercup. Fabs is only just starting his Liverpool career no way is he best in the world in his position. Didn't even make the Brazian squad in the summer. That was a terrible decision but best in the world is a big stretch.

Robbo, I certainly think he has a good case. Also Mane.

This made me laugh so hard snot came out my nose. The only best player in the world we have is vvd. Taa nowhere near the best rightback. Alison is not in top 5 keepers.

{Ed001's Note - if you seriously believe Alisson is not in the top 5 keepers then you know absolutely f all about goalkeeping. You are just making yourself look stupid with that comment. It is as bad as your ludicrous Arsenal comments.}

Mark again, your slating of Fab lacks complete context and is quite myopic. It was clear that our whole midfield was out of sync in that game with gaps opening up all over the middle as soon as we lost the ball. Therefore, you slating Fab that Kante (great player) ran all over Fab is bogus cos you conveniently fail to mention that he was left alone with runners (Kante included) running at him with no cover from his midfield mates. Or did you miss that obvious observation by chance?

This is the same crap people used to slate Lucas with when he was here with people forgetting that Gerrard would always leave him hanging after getting caught out in attack and losing the ball BUT no one dare criticize capt. fantastic whenever he screwed up, clearly. Bottom line is that nobody in that midfield played well in the Super Cup so singling out Fab for your bile is dishonest and pathetic.

As for whether he is world class or not, I don't care cos he is great for what we do and is already 2 best at the DM position to probably Fernandinho, in the PL. That's good enuff for me.

Name 5 keepers better than Allison Walter (this will be funny) . You are right about TAA as he is young and will learn the defensive side. Salah and definitely Mane would walk into any team in the world right now.
What a wind-up merchant you are Walter.

Pipe down Redwolf are we not allowed to say anymore when a player has a poor game? The midfield was poor in the Supercup but Fabs was the worst. Are we not allowed to say we don't think he is best in the world?

Fabinho is getting better (learning the prem) but for me he does sometimes put us in trouble with square passes in front of the box. After all he has really only played 6 months in the pl and can only see him improving.

One thing I am very glad to see is you took my advice and stopped with the stupid capitals.

Greenflash, yes TAA is young and inexperienced in the right back position, as it isn't even his natural position. He is played there for his creativity and relative nous in defence, but I'll stress again, it's not his position, and he has orders to march forward whenever possible, making him vulnerable. The whole reason that we play him there is that he assists in so many attacks.

How I see this topic trying to look without red tinted glasses is that I'd call VVD the best CB around. I'd have allison and robbo in the definate top 3 in their positions with argument of being no.1. Kante is not a DM in the same role or type fabinho is. I wouldn't swap Fabinho for anyone currently, busquets, fernandinho, matic, khedira, have had their success over recent years but no one stands out currently in the position. Mane salah and firmino are perfect for us and I can't rate them as individuals in a different setup team. Each player has doubled their best numbers since playing together for us. Trent is far from the world's best RB as an overall player.

Put firmino up front for juventus, put robbo LB for atletico Madrid, put fabinho DM for bayern Munich, put mane in Barcelona team and you might not see the best of those players. We currently are draining every inch of quality out of their strenghts and making them perform among the best around.

Ok guys get your point, but what if god forbid milner leaves, or keita doesn't up his game an kick on like we all hoped, if we looking at a midfielder in summer mcginn would be great.

No but I am definitely saying andy robertson is and it would be nice to get some quality Scots in the team to keep him company and also Robertson was seen as mediocre when he signed for us, look where he is now best left back in the world .

Thanx for the reply ed, I think with that in mind the club would have half an eye on waiting for the right time too sell him an can see that being at the end of this season, I am a big fan of his but I would rather have players who are 100 percent committed.
