Hi Ed002, are you aware if we had Scouts st Lyons game tonight please? If so do you know who we was scouting?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

19 May 2019 09:56:58
Any of, or all of Depay, Aouar, Dembele and Fekir (didn't play) .

I've seen all 4 of those linked with us at different points in the last year.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 May 2019 12:47:55
Epic we don’t have interest in 3 out of the 4 mate that I no of anyway.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 May 2019 15:11:53
Depay is the only one I know that we could be linked with as we reportedly sent scouts to check on him last week in their game vs OM.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 16:58:39
Has Depay improved that much since his time with United? I though he looked quite poor at that point, although I appreciate he was relatively young.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 18:37:56
Redwolf Ed’s has said no interest in Depay mate. We’re would he play? He won’t play back up to Anyone of the front 3. Come to think of it I don’t no why we would even have scouts at the game full stop.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 20:16:08
Aouar was linked before the winter transfer window but it went quiet on him after that. We've been linked with Fekir for a long time now.

Depay just seems to be the flavour of the month rumour at the moment. I've seen us linked with Dembele on other sites. I actually think that Dembele would be a very worthwhile target if we didn't have Brewster knocking on the door of the first team, but I doubt we'd look to Dembele as he'd completely block the way for Rhian.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good read Ed pathetic fine for Barca, May as well have had fine at all.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 May 2019 07:39:53
cheers for the update
have to wondered what happened to will keane he was touted as a young star and look now
reminds me of lee jones a bit talented but injuries at worst time in career.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he just wasn't very good.}

19 May 2019 07:50:43
Good move for potter ed? I remember you saying a few months ago he was a good fit for Swansea if they stuck with him, do you see the same with Brighton?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I don't know they have ridiculous expectations of a manager. He is a good choice but they will have to be patient.}

19 May 2019 08:10:37
Good morning Ed001 I totally forgot about Boni and Liam Ridgewell. Boni was the one that shocked me the most still pretending to be a footballer.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - he has had a lot of injury problems.}

19 May 2019 09:27:57
Thank you Ed! have a good Sunday mate.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - you too mate cheers.}

19 May 2019 09:54:49
Oh sorry I didn't know WB was injured just thought he was dropped the whole time my bad.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 May 2019 10:02:02
Cheers Ed.

At least that puts the Lloyd Kelly rumours to bed.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 May 2019 11:27:57
I couldn't agree more about Guardiola's cardigan. It was terrible and I'm sure it put off City's opponents on the run in.

So Liverpool v city in community shield ahead of next season - great start!

Agree5 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Apparently it is, like the Premier League, meaningless and the Liverpool fans don’t care one iota.}

18 May 2019 20:16:23
I care a great deal. Tremendous opportunity for LFC.

18 May 2019 20:20:30
Ed, I thought you were more worldly wise and intelligent than to judge all Liverpool fans because of the views of a few thoughtless ones.

Can I just throw in another, potential, game for us to all agree, or disagree on the merits of? 14th August, Super Cup. At the end of that day we could have 2 pieces of silver to polish, before the season has barely got underway. I do stress potentially.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - another duffer for me rome along with the world club championship, all made up money spinners which mean absolutely FA, just my view of course mate..

18 May 2019 21:55:51
For what it's worth Ed25, I tend to agree with you mate. As pointless as Eurovision, which I'm watching as I type this!
Australia in Eurovision; Discuss.

{Ed025's Note - yeah whats that all about rome?...get on norway at 14/1 mate..

18 May 2019 22:01:01
I'm getting on to Paddy Power as I type Ed! 14/ 1, that's pinching money!
If it comes in there's a pint of Hop House behind the bar, Ed!

{Ed025's Note - nice one mate..

19 May 2019 03:46:55
The Community Shield will be a good test to see where we stand compared to City after the summer window. If this season showed anything, it was that we cannot rely on other teams to take points of City as they are so much better than the other teams except us. The target next season will be to match all our results against the other 18 teams and to take 6 points off City (which we did not do and hence lost the league) . The Community Shield game gives KLopp and opportunity to evaluate a new strategy to beat City next season just like Pep figured LFC out this season.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2019 09:20:01
Ed2 I’m guessing all the fans saying they don’t care about the community Shield are young and don’t remember us competing in it. I for one would like us to challenge on all fronts. I’d also prefer it if we had a good run in the domestic cups rather than field weak teams and go out early. The fa cup used to mean something years ago, sadly I don’t think many teams see it as important anymore which I think is down to the influx of foreign managers/ players. However that’s just my opinion, I’m not always right as my missus likes to point out.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I am not young, nor do I give a toss about a pre-season friendly.}

19 May 2019 09:58:32
Ed 1 you must be one of those fans ed2 is talking about them. Me I want to win everything.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - I want to win every competitive game, but I don't care about friendlies, they are just for fitness. I really do not like someone trying to bait me with the nonsense Ed02 uses to wind up the morons into biting either. It is petty.

I fear for anyone who thinks friendly results matter at all if they are not taking part in them. The Community Shield is a pointless game that should have been scrapped the moment it was revealed that the FA don't give enough of the proceeds to charity for it to count as a charity event.}

19 May 2019 10:13:44
All I care about is watching more games, and therefore I'd welcome Community Shield, Super Cup, World Club Cup, etc. I'd also like us to field stronger teams in the domestic cups so that we get more games.

Sure, winning them is nice, but I just love watching my team. The more games, the better.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2019 12:19:45
Let's be honest, Ed1 is right. It is only a friendly. When has anybody ever given a damn about the community shield? if we're resorting to that, being bothered about it then we're in trouble. All I'm bothered about is 4 things.

1. Keeping players fit and ready for the season ahead by having friendlies.
2. Seeing how the younger lads get on in pre season.
3. The CL final
4. The first game of next season.

This community shield is nonsense, it's nothing but a bit of exercise for the lads and if they win it they may have a bit of fun with it by using it as a Frisbee after the game.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2019 15:15:27
Spot on, Ed01. Couldn't be arsed about the Community Shield. It is nothing BUT a glorified preseason friendly. If other fans are arsed about that, all power to them. They should not just start using the result to come on here and start spouting stuff like they know what team will do so and so during the season.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 May 2019 18:51:13
Bring on the charity sheld 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻.

Agree12 Disagree2

18 May 2019 18:59:16
It’s not a trophy though Longthing, sighs.

Agree5 Disagree12

{Ed002's Note - Right, but it is still better to win the game than not.}

18 May 2019 19:03:30
run to the line, smash it across goal, tap in Back post.
Will the prem click onto peps tactics next season? Or just keep letting it happen 😂.

Agree12 Disagree1

18 May 2019 19:27:28
Winning it means nothing, though maybe beating city might jar them mentally before the season kicks off.

Agree0 Disagree10

{Ed002's Note - It is interesting to see the Liverpool supporters writing off every opportunity to win something as “it means nothing” - the Premier League was only last week; this week the Charity Shield. Thank goodness you are not embarrassing yourselves.}

18 May 2019 19:27:56
Got to be honest, never thought I would see a cup final where a team went out trying to keep the score down rather than to actually win it. When Milwall were in the Championship and played that all conquering United team in the early 2000s they played better than that. This rolling over to City is now an epidemic in football in this country. Aside from a couple of teams that never got the memo of course.

Agree10 Disagree1

18 May 2019 19:41:44
It may not be in the top three but I'd love to win the community shield, whatever the outcome of the CL it is potentially another trophy in the cabinet. If you want the winning mentality you go for everything, success breeds success!

Agree7 Disagree2

{Ed025's Note - wow just wow, your desperation for silverware knows no bounds WYred.... i hear they are looking for teams in the zingari league 2nd division next season mate...mind you you would probably finish runners up in that.. :)

18 May 2019 19:42:18
LFC never got the memo Kim we never attacked them in either game, so if we didn't how can you expect the others teams to. If we want to beat City we need to do it on the pitch in the league.

Agree6 Disagree2

18 May 2019 19:49:31
I agree with Ed02 completely on this. I can't believe that some people are downplaying this opportunity to send a clear message early. I hope we take it seriously because I'm sure City will.

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed025's Note - but if city beat you in that as well they get to keep you stone.. :)

18 May 2019 19:49:27
Ed002, not being funny but if Liverpool won it and celebrated, you’d be the first to tell us it’s not a proper trophy and Koop has so far failed to deliver a proper trophy! Most fans around the country don’t care one iota about the charity shield but somehow you’ve managed to twist this and use it as a stick to beat us Liverpool fans with!

Agree11 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Really - where have I ever suggested such a thing? If Liverpool have so little respect for the game - perhaps they should back out of it completely - particularly given the assumption that none of the so called fans will show up because they don’t care one iota. I believe “laughing stock” is appropriate.}

18 May 2019 20:11:22
A trophy is a trophy try and win them all lad's.

Agree2 Disagree3

{Ed025's Note - i can go in the loft and get a few of mine for you if you want barry.. :)

18 May 2019 20:18:49
I'd rather be playing in the community shield than not Ed025. I see it as a tremendous opportunity and as a reward for the previoius season. Maybe I'm too old fashioned.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i see it more of a fun thing than a serious trophy opportunity stone, a nice day out though mate..

18 May 2019 20:20:42
Disagree JK. I don't think Ed02 would bash us for celebrating winning the community shield and if he or anyone else did, so what? We should always want to play in the Community Shield.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed025's Note - if you had won the prem or the FA cup then i would agree stone, your entering through the back door taints it a bit for me mate..

18 May 2019 20:22:09
Ed025, you're the last person I thought would downplay the significance of the Community Shield. I'm really surprised at your view of this.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i honestly dont see the point in it stone, when it was the charity shield and the money went to good causes (i dont know if thats still the case) then i suppose i could tolerate it, but its a non event for me mate..

18 May 2019 20:25:46
Ooh ed025 you're after a bite, and you’ve got one haha. Maybe love though was a strong word, but I’m a firm believer that you should go for everything you are in for. Even city have got images of them winning four trophies this season. Plus it’s a trip to Wembley, let’s beat city and show them we aren’t going anywhere!

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed025's Note - its not something i would watch to be fair WYred, the champions versus the nearly but no cigar team..hardly compelling viewing mate.. :)

18 May 2019 20:34:09
So what Ed025, we're playing in it. It is an honour to be playing in the match. I'm sure that if Everton were in the same position you would be extemely happy and proud. I would be for you as well. Any club should view playing in this match as an honour regardless of how they made it.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - but its supposed to be the league winners against the FA cup winners? maybe letting liverpool play in it is a form of charity?...i dont know..

18 May 2019 20:39:11
Stone, ed002 ridiculed Klopp last season for not winning a trophy even though he had us playing some of the best football I’ve seen and getting to a 2nd European final in 2 years, so if you think he’ll be any different if we win a ‘trophy’ for which we qualified for on a technicality (finishing 2nd in the league) then you are mistaken! I agree with ed025, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near it, it’s a pointless enough game if you have won the league or FA cup, never mind if you havent!

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed025's Note - i could not agree more JK..

18 May 2019 20:45:34
But a lot better viewing than everton 1, huddersfield 1 ed025.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i expect it would be a very entertaining game between the best 2 teams by a mile in the EPL sandon, if you win it we could have a parade through the streets or the team could join hands and run and dive they did after a draw against west brom a couple of years back mate.. :)

18 May 2019 20:59:20
Ed you are killing me! two great teams should make a great game. I’ll also look forward to Everton’s final, hopefully the Merseyside Derby is around Christmas, heard Pickford likes giving out gifts haha.

Agree3 Disagree0

My cousins a bitter 25
His current whatsapp profile photo is the man city badge
Its a sad day when everton and lpool aren't challenging for top spot like in the 80s and the highlight of evertons season is cheering on a manchester side that beats liverpool to the title
If ever your in wavertree 25 ill line u up a pint of boddingtons on me 😘.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - im a wavertree guy myself sandon, i dont like city but i do admire the way they play mate, if your in the cock and bottle or the coffee house i might just hold you to that offer.. :)

18 May 2019 21:06:10
Ed025 " look at all the stupid liverpool fans taking the community shield seriously"

Ed002 " look at all the stupid liverpool fans mocking the community sheild"

ok then.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - what can i say ryan..we have different views on things, i disagree with other EDS on a regular basis mate its not a dictatorship, it would be a boring old world if we all thought the same my friend...a stepford wife i will never be.. :)

18 May 2019 21:09:18
Just have to agree to disagree on this one. Again, maybe I'm too old fashioned, but it is an honour to be in the match regardless of how we got there. Ed02 is 100% correct on this in my view.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i have been wrong before stone....1978 i think it was mate.. :)

18 May 2019 21:13:27
Tell me you've drank in “the grove” or the shipperies And i probably already know u 25
Just did a history search. evertons last trophy wasnt the milk cup, it was actually the fa cup in 95. id be drinking boddingtons too ed if i had to wait that long for a final. 😘😘😘.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i did drink in the grove and played football for the shipperies sandon as well as edgehill villa and the action, i dont know how old you are mate but the groups on the ships were legendary mate, the west coast flyers and beryl marsden to name just a couple, everton are on the way up my friend and the league could well be a 3 horse race next season.. :)

18 May 2019 21:57:39
Just to check 25, your not the bloke that threw the welly up the entry when u met me ma in the grafton?
We could be related.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - lol, i could well be mate that was one of my old haunts in the 70,s, grab a granny was the place to be..

18 May 2019 21:58:47
Ed025 mate I don't think a trophy for the"1978 North West England Gurning Champion"will suffice😁.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - now now barry, if you said a george clooney look alike trophy i think you would be a lot nearer...though some might agree with you mate.. :)

18 May 2019 22:03:58
Ok last one.
Do u remember the royston off gladstone road?
Got burnt down
Good pub that.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i could not think of the name sandon (old age), spent a good part of my life in there as i only lived on chatty mate..

18 May 2019 22:10:25
Your too cool Ed I can't slag you anymore mate👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - thank god for that mate.. :)

18 May 2019 22:12:22
We probably know each other or at least u know r kid
U still in the area?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - very possibly sandon, no mate i live in gateacre now but im still a wavo lad at heart mate..

Love the above banter. 😁
Life is all about having a chuckle.

You'll have to email me 25

Let me know who u knocked around with in the grove and the shipperies
Its a small world. you probably knocked my pint over at some point.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your ok for a blue
Until i find out that your the milkman that looks the spit of my brother.

I'm keen for liverpool to win the charity shield more than I am keen for ed2 to validate my opinion. Either way, ya'll should take a drop of that advice.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2019 23:18:58
Good discussion Eds. Have a good one.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2019 09:45:12
Out of curiosity how did the FA determine what club would get the technicality spot? Why not the FA cup runner up rather than the league runner up?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 10:23:55
It means nothing? City, who have had an amazing season, winning the league and both domestic cups are still saying that they've won the "Domestic Quadruple".

If City fans are still counting it as a trophy, after all they've achieved this season, I can't believe the mentality of some of our fans.

Of course it means something.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 10:27:30
Nafe01, I'd argue that it's more of an achievement to come second in the league than be a cup runner up.

You can fluke (I'm not saying Watford did, though) getting to the final of the FA Cup. You can't really fluke coming 2nd in the league.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 14:47:28
Id love it if we won the Community Shield. Gets the season off with a win, also means City's season starts with a defeat.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 14:51:39
It’s all banter at the end of the day, if we win it so many rival fans will say it is a glorified friendly. We probably would if Everton or united were to be in it or win it. At the end of the day we are in it and it’ll be the first game between us and city next season. That alone is enough motivation for me, hopefully show the others a way to beat them and get off on the right foot.

Even between fans we will agree or disagree over the community shield, and I’d personally prefer to be in it through winning it. But in an ideal world we may have the CL, shield and super cup by September so let’s just enjoy the ride rather then sniping because someone has the audacity to maybe thing slightly differently.

On a separate note anyone know how to get tickets for it when there released? I’m guessing it’ll be based on league games attended so be unlikely for me to get involved.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 14:52:25
Im only a kid 25
40 years young last year
My older bro stokesy was a bit of a legend in those parts though
My cousin lived on cicely street and me on gladstone road
The manor was a place to steer clear from
I was always stumped with the grove, advertised as a drinking establishment, there was more wacky stuff and people selling knock off dvds than drinking the local tipple
Always reminded me of someones front parlour.

My Verdict on Maurizio Sarri's First Season at Chelsea

{Ed's Note - AfroBlue has posted a new article entitled, My Verdict on Maurizio Sarri's First Season at Chelsea

‘The third best team in terms of numbers’ 😂.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2019 22:17:50
One thing is for sure, the Liverpool end will be a sell out and if I can get down to the twin towers ( I wish) I’ll be going.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 14:45:56
It appears to me that Chelsea supporters are far more tolerant and understanding than the team owner, Roman Abramovich. We've all seen him fire managers who have achieved far more and devised a much better quality of football than what we have seen this past season. I'm surprised Sarri is still there (but maybe Abramovich is finally tired of making managers multi-millionaires by giving them long contracts and then firing them after a season or two) . The "Kepa" incident encapsulates their season for me; everyone doing their own thing (with the exception of Hazard who is probably most responsible for a decent finish and a place in the Champions League) .

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 16:47:49
Hi EDs

Sorry to hear about the issues you've been having but I'm oddly happy as it will allow me to personally contribute to a site that has been both informative and entertaining thanks to the posters and yourselves.

I pay for Sky at the moment, I know, sinful, but I am always frustrated by the service it provides. I would go elsewhere but my contract is complicated. It's good to know I will finally be paying for something worthwhile and meaningful for a change. I get paid on the first btw, so that is when I will be making my first donation. I hope this will help even in minor way.

Leaving that aside for now, I wanted to ask you a question about Liverpools youth rather than anything based around transfers in and out. I've heard a lot of talk about Adam Lewis and Rhian Brewster receiving potential opportunities to fight for a place in the first team. I was wondering about the clubs opinion on them was for next season?

I like the look of Adam Lewis, in particular, and it would be nice to see another Liverpool product be in the match day squad, even as a sub. Rhian, I suspect, will find chances limited due to how vital Firmino is to the way we play.

Also, are there any other players that the club are looking a from within to improve the squad in a year or two. Players like Curtis Jones, Hoever, etc. Would love to get your opinion on the players I have listed and maybe others I was no aware of as my knowledge of Liverpools youth system is very limited and I suspect you will have greater knowledge in this department.

Apologies if this message is long winded or incoherent but I have spent the last five hours working on my Project for FA Level Two Coaching and couldn't help but wonder about this topic.

All the best and I would like to thank you and the posters for making this site a fountain of knowledge, imagination and enjoyment.

LFC-S MANGO.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, I really appreciate that.

As for the youth, it is most likely that they will be loaned out rather than getting a chance in the first team next season. There is no one seen as on the verge of a breakthrough right now, with the possible exception of Wilson. A lot will depend on who goes/comes in the transfer window and what offers come in for youth players too, as they don't just want to send them to any old club.

Brewster is seen as part of the first team squad now, Wilson will get a shot in pre-season to earn a slot in there too.}

18 May 2019 17:15:23
Think it also depends on who is sold and signed in the summer, wether players like Wilson get a chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 17:52:46
What sort of player is Brewster? Anyone you can compare him to in style - speed merchant, scores from crosses, good in the air etc?

Agree2 Disagree0

18 May 2019 18:11:45
I have seen very little of Brewster but don’t think he’s an arial threat, he’s not big or that strong. Quick enough, good finisher.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 May 2019 19:27:22
Ed can you give us your opinion on Brewster? Strengths/ weaknesses.

What your expectations are of him for next season

Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - there can be no expectations of him, he is recovering from a long term injury. As for strengths and weaknesses, I have not seen enough of him to judge.}

18 May 2019 20:18:02
Ive watched Brewster a lot. Prior to his injury. He is an intelligent striker. Makes great runs which on occasion can pull 2+ defenders out of position. Has a cool finish in his locker aswell as tricks and skills. All of this has been at youth level but he is obviously aware that creating space for others is as important as finding space for himself. I can't see him operating from a wide position, but hope I'm proved wrong on that. I assume he has, when fit, been training in the current first team philosophy. I believe we can keep the cheque book closed with him and Origi ready to deputise. Some full back cover and midfield replacements for any outgoing and I think we will be OK.

I still want us to sign a senior full back that can cover for both Robbo and TAA when needed. Not sure throwing Adam Lewis or Ki Jana in to the deep end when there is a possibility that we will need to win 99% of our games next season to win the league is a good idea. Get in someone like Ricardo or Kenny Lala and send Lewis out on loan.
Brewster seems to be a different kettle of fish the way Klopp has treated him. Clearly Klopp sees him as a generational talent and he will likely be an understudy to Bobby. WE still need a versatile forward on top of that though. DEpay seems the latest to be doing the rounds after the Brandt snub. Wouldn't be a bad option to have imo.

From what I’ve seen, his game is based around being a good finisher and good movement. Plays mostly off the shoulder rather than being a classic physical CF, and he pops up in dangerous positions in the box due to reading the game well.

I’d say his style is more like an Aguero type player - without the quality yet of course.

Also I'm sure there are new loan rules coming into play possibly this season oraybe next where basically they limit the amount of players a team can have out on loan so the likes of Chelsea and juventus can't have around 50 and 80 players out on loan each there's others too no doubt but these are the two I know. Perhaps Liverpool may also have to sell loaned out players to keep the ones they really need to.

Looks like Lloyd kelly going Bournemouth. Sky reporting 13mill fee agreed. Prob a good move for him in terms of playing time especially.

I’d like to see Harry Wilson be given an opportunity next season. With him and Ox coming in that’s like 2 new signings. Add Brewster further forward and it’s already 3.

Do they plus Origi give enough cover (and quality) to rest the front 3 every now and then?

Agree6 Disagree17

18 May 2019 12:17:56
Maybe rotate grujic with fab and keep hendo as a cm. then we only need to sign a full back.

Agree1 Disagree9

18 May 2019 12:52:05
Grujic and Wilson will probably be leaving us but Brewster will be a full first team player and Ox is definitely back.

Agree4 Disagree3

18 May 2019 13:38:06
Wow. Didn’t expect my post to be so one sided disliked. I wasn’t discussing the defensive half of the team just the attacking end. I still don’t understand why I got so many thumbs down. Do people really think we need to sign a world class player for the bench?

Agree2 Disagree9

18 May 2019 15:05:51
Maybe the thumbs down know enough to see that Wilson isn't of the quality needed for our first team.

Agree4 Disagree1

18 May 2019 17:18:32
g1dgo, world class players don't want to sit on the bench so trying to sign one to do that, is a futile venture.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 19:53:29
World class players sitting on the bench? Can't remember Messi, Ronaldo etc being on the bench. We have a few players who can be world class

Allison
VVD
Mane
Salah
and I suppose the full backs could but I will never be alive to see us have world class on the bench. If we sign anyone close to world class then they will definitely be in the first 11. Our midfield has no one anywhere near world class.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2019 03:26:36
I'd add Firmino to that World Class list. Plus in Trent and Robbo we've got two of the best fullbacks around atm who both should be considered world class if they maintain this form, if not already.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 04:02:23
No team with a clear identity has world class players on the bench they have no idea what to do with. Even the players that warm the bench at Barca, Real or City are not exactly top notch. The likes of Sane, Mahrez, Gundogan, Malcom, Coutinho, Vidal, Isco, Bale etc are either past it, overrated or were never world class in the first place. That's why they are sat on the bench.
At the minute, we are not signing anyone that will be anywhere near as good as our first 11 (excluding our midfield which Klopp likes to rotate and is very player specific about) .
Alisson is in the top 5 GKs in world football and the best in the BPL at the minute.
TAA and Robbo are the best full back pairing in world football at the minute.
Our front 3 don't need any justification as to why they should be undisputed starters.
We cannot expect some of the best players in their position to sign, but we can get in people like Depay, Kenny Lala or whoever it is the club is looking at that will not demand to start every game and is willing to work their way up and earn their place.

Makes me laugh all these people thinking Brewster who’s very much unproven is going to be good enough yet write Wilson off who’s just had a fantastic season with derby and may yet to go on and help them gain promotion. Yes he might not have the quality to push for a place but let’s face it he’s a lot further on than Brewster!
I for one would like to see them both make it but also I think if they’re good enough they’ll push through and we should buy players to strengthen the squad and not rely on youth hopefully making it.

Ed 001 to cover both full back postions would do you think about djibril Sidibe?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I have never seen him play on the left, but on the right I would.}

18 May 2019 11:26:07
for me this signing makes sense as trent is not a defender maybe he could really be moved forward with full back being a option if we are short then leaving sidibe to play right wing back as he attacks very well and gets up and down then right wing.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 May 2019 12:11:00
Am I the only one who is non-plussed with the idea Alexander-Arnold moving to midfield? He'd have less space and time on the ball, and wouldn't be on the right flank to whip in dangerous crosses nearly as much. I doubt he'll get 15 assists in a season from midfield.

We have a guy who can power up and down the right touchline for 90 minutes, has a good passing range, uses the ball intelligently and is deadly with his deliveries. If it was up to me, I wouldn't be inclined to take him out of there. Sure, he's not the best in the world defensively, but I think anyone we would get who's a worthwhile improvement defensively, will be noticeably weaker going forward. I don't think that's a trade off we need to make. Plus Alexander-Arnold is only 20, he'll get better defensively.

20 years ago, he would have probably been a right side midfielder in a 442 whipping in crosses into the box in the mould of Beckham, but we don't play a system like that. Very few top teams do anymore. And I don't see him as a flying winger able to take on players on either his right or left side like Mane.

Agree12 Disagree0

18 May 2019 12:19:46
I'd leave him where he is aswell. Why mess with something that's already brilliant?

Agree8 Disagree0

18 May 2019 12:54:01
Fully agree with something red taa needs game time still and realistically who would you drop out of the three mids to give trent a starting place.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2019 12:59:52
I’d say his passion range is hindered at full back and he’s also too good a player to be a fb. I’d much rather him pinging them balls from the middle myself he’d open teams up left and right. I also think he’s poor defensively especially positioning.

Agree1 Disagree4

18 May 2019 14:13:31
Its allright saying he's too good for fullback and he'd be better in midfield but he wouldn't get half the space or time in the middle of the park. i watched Trent for the u18s and 23's for a few years while he was coming through and if im honest i never thought he was near good enough to play for our 1st team in midfield. I love the kid and would love a lot more of the academy players to break through but he's found a position, he's excelling in that position and could be something really special there, let's leave him there and see how good he can become.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 May 2019 17:25:19
Good shout there, OP re: Sidibe. Sidibe is very good on the ball, has a good cross and end product on him even tho his defensive nous needs a bit of work. Also as a plus, he was supposed to be the starter for France at the last WC but could not shake off a knee prob so Pavard (supposed to be his deputy) got the nod and well, the rest is history. I would take him in a heartbeat.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2019 19:52:01
100% agree with you Something Red.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 07:28:06
I agree. Trent has real quality going forward and lacks the defensive consistency but with defenders learning to defend it takes experience and game time. It's very rare 20 year olds are defensively reliable consistently. Give him time and his weaknesses will only strengthen. I'd like him to remain fullback long term.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2019 14:42:46
His defensive weaknesses would show even more in midfield. Prefer to let him grow into the RB role until he makes it his own, and then look into moving him further up. We still need a backup for him, though. Not a good idea to keep switching Gomez back and forth. Not every player can do a James Milner and slot in, without much difficulty, into most positions on the right and left.
