I've seen several posts asking for a backup for Salah/ Mane. The likes of Arnautovic and Shaqiri have been mentioned, neither of which good enough, young enough and won't want to be on the bench.

My choice would be Brighton's Anthony Knockheart. He's skillful, fast, really works his socks off and I've not heard of any attitude problems (like I've heard about the other two) . I also think he'd be happy to be on the bench for a big club and prove himself and/ or be cover.

What do you think?

I think he'd fit in really well to Klopp's system.

I do rate knockaert but I’d rather go for izqueirdo because of his sheer ice and dribbling ability. He would fit better in our system imo.

Pace not ice*.

I said last season that we should go and sign Zaha and Pieters from stoke. klopp could then either rotate front four or drop mane into midfield Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo. I'm afraid Moreno isnt.

Arnautovic not good enough but Knockaert is?

Langland- you said last season that Pieters would be a good backup for Robbo? We didn’t even have Robbo last season.

That's actually a good choice. Will he be willing to come with limited playing time? .

Not good enough on the ball to play in our system! Aurnatovic is ok!

Well it's certainly divided opinion.

No name and Cobra666: I was referring to the fact that Arnautovic wouldn't want to be backup or have to prove his place in the side, wheras Knockheart is young enough and I also think flexible enough.

We didn't sign either.
We should sign them this season.
Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo and if ever Salah leaves we should play Pieters a faint him.
Zaha would be a brill addition. Proven premiership and Klopp could make him a better player.

{Ed001's Note - oh yes buy dross to take us forward to a new Hodgson era. Great.}

I personally think he’s too inconsistant and feel like we’ve took a big step in our quality of recruitment in the last 18 months, would like to think we wouldn’t take a backwards step targeting mediocre players again. An attacking midfielder capable of playing in the front 3 is what I thinks best, then we can both rotate them and have them all starting when needed. Abit like how coutinho was used in the first half of this season.

TIA19. Inconsistency is what you often get with young players. Just them when they have a good game and when they're having a bad day, if they're still giving 100% (but just not quite pulling it off) and that's enough for me. On his good days, he's absolutely quality. He really gave Man Utd's defence a surprise and something to think about.

Consistency can be coached. The raw talent can't.

I really hope I'm not shooting us in the foot here. Touch wood he doesn't have a blinder against us next Sunday. Haha.

Shaquiri? Anautovic? Zaha? Good grief, what is going on here? As Ed said, these guys are not good enough to even be the backup to our backups. Instead of these guys, I would just stick with Harry Wilson and the other kids. Like Epic, I do like Knockaerts and to some extent Izquierdo even tho, they may still be raw.

I think Redmond from Southampton would be a good shout to cover both wings.

Haha, come on Ed001 surely, a 29 year old Championship left back with one assist in 29 games is the answer to our prayers. Knockaert and Izquierdo are decent players but not really good enough for Liverpool and the premium on Premier League players means we'd get better value elsewhere. And good grief another Redmond fan. Please give it up, he is just pants. Is it because he scored a goal on Saturday? You know that's his first all season? He's not even good enough for Southampton and Harry Wilson is already a better player than Redmond.

{Ed001's Note - Redmond has been awful all season.}
