Midfield and attack already looking impressive.



These are all vying for six places for me that's a stong starting six and bench.

I don't know if this would be followed up with Keita but if it is that's an excellent start.

For me next up will be a defender, and I still think at some point Van Dijk will arrive. I don't claim to know it's happening but I just have a feeling it will. I'm not even going to try and guess who we will sign for left back.

If Keita and VVD signed then we're onto something this coming season.

Salah deal seems almost done which finally gives us another winger. Midfield onwards the squad is quite strong now with

Sturridge (hopefully now fully recovered) .


Once Salah is done defence should next area for improvement. Left is the big one for me but there is quality options out there. There's still some even in some cases very slim chances of the below for left back.


Plus there's Milner still who can cover and has tonnes of experience. Van Dijk would be a major boost if still possible.

We look stronger already with just one signing in Salah.

If get have salah and mane on the wings with couts playing the deeper role . who would people put up top, the workrate and press of bobby or the clever movement and goals of studge?

Firmino's movement alone is the reason why he starts matches whenever he is fit.

18 Jun 2017 21:43:17
Im dreaming but imagine.

-----------Keita-----? ---------

? = either Gini, hendo, Can, Milner, Grujic etc

VVD = £50m
Mendy = £40m
Keita = £50m
Salah = £35m
Aubameyang = £60m
= £235m gross spend.

{Ed025's Note - no firmino GK?..

I think our best starting 11 last season was:
Clyne Matip Lovren Milner
Lallana Henderson Wijnalden
Mane Firminho Coutinho

Which of these players do you feel need replacing? a lot if talk of new players coming in. I would be happy with tweaking with defense, but in attack I was happy. Quality on the bench or players to come in when others are injured is great. But would we want to drop 1 of Mane, Firminho or Coutinho?

I think you´re right regarding the starting lineup, but I think a read somewhere that this lineup was used only in 3-4 games - And that is down to injuries.
IMO, I would say that Clyne, Lovren and Milner needs to be replaced. Salah is closed to being finalized, but I still expect him, Mane, Firmino and Coutinho to be fielded at the same time. The arrival of Salah would push either Wijnaldum or Lallana out of the starting 11.

Pereira Matip Höwedes Bertrand
Lallana Hendo Coutinho
Salah Firmino Mane

Okay so something different for everyone. Assuming we get our strongest linked targets right now in Salah, Gibson, Robertson and Neves/ Keita, what does everyone think our strongest XI would be? For me:

Clyne Matip Lovren Robertson
Henderson Keita
Mane Coutinho Salah
Firmino/ Sturridge (when fit)
Any other opinions?

Milner, Matip, Gibson, Robertson
Wijnaldum, Henderson, Coutinho
Salah, Firmino, Mane

I obviously have heard about how good Keita supposedly is, but I have only seen highlights of him and he looks like he'd be a back up to me. I'm not sure he is better holding than Hendo/ Can, nor do I think he is a better box to box than Wijnaldum. He certainly isn't as good a playmaker as Coutinho. He is basically a younger Lallana though. So I think it would push out either Lallana or Grujic unless Coutinho is off, in which case it makes sense I suppose.

I didn't really bother to watch Leipzig last year though so now all I can watch of him is clips. I think he'd be the perfect player to have on the bench to come on and inject a bit of energy, pace and direct running in midfield. Kind of like how Chelsea brought Fabregas on to use his vision and composure to unlock tight defences. Can't see us paying £60m for a back up though which is why I think we are exploring different options such as Zielinski and Savic.

Keita is not a DM. He is an energetic box to box midfielder who would add significant fluidity to our game.

So what happens if we get a transfer ban? Haha. I mean I assume Solanke will go through anyway now as that business was completed before the ban will be imposed. If not I guess Ojo doesn't get his loan!

Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner
Gini, Hendo, Lallana
Mane, Firmino, Coutinho

Arnold, Gomez, Klavan, Moreno
Grujic, Can, Woodburn
Origi, Sturridge, Solanke/ Ojo

+ Grabara, Ejaria, Ings

Maybe Klopp even apologises to Sakho or we convince Lucas to give us another year? Maybe we offer Allan £80k a week just to get him a work permit? Maybe Manninger comes out of retirement to play as a striker and scores 30 goals!

It forces us to massively rethink who is for sale at the right price. Oh dear.

Mignolet/ Karius/ Klavan/ Lovren/ Clyne/ Gomez/ Tierney/ Lucas/ Milner/ Can/ Grujic/ Mane/ Salah/ Wilson/ Sturridge/ Ings/ Solanke/ Origi/ Woodburn.

Ok Guys (and Gals), everyone seems to be grieving somewhat, and I agree that LFC has not had a great recent track record with transfers, especially with regard to tapping up and illegal approaches etc. However I thought I would try and throw some names out there that would undoubtedly improve our starting 11 and given we apparently seem willing to "splash some cash" this window in order to push on from last season how about one of each from the following categories?
CB: Jonathan Tah, Niklas Süle, Victor Lindelöf, Alessio Romagnoli, Aymeric Laporte, Daniele Rugani, Andreas Christensen.
LB: Benjamin Mendy, Lucas Digne, Wendell, Yannick Gerhardt, Jordan Amavi, Raphaël Guerreiro, José Luis Gayá.
RB: João Cancelo, Nélson Semedo, Elseid Hysaj, Mitchell Weiser, Mattia De Sciglio, Rick Karsdorp.
Wing: Mohamed Salah, Federico Bernardeschi, Ángel Correa, Domenico Berardi, Iñaki Williams, Florian Thauvin, Quincy Promes.
My point being is that there are options/ alternatives out there (and many I haven't included) and the window isn't even open yet. Fingers crossed (this time) some lessons have been learnt, my glass is usually half full, (of beer quite often) .
We go again.

Why do people keep saying Sule? He's off to Bayern, he signed for them ages ago.
