Just to throw it out there. What we need is a young, hungry, talented midfielder, who has vision, ideally some pace, who can press, get stuck in when needed, and has the potential to become an integral part of the Liverpool line-up, who is attainable and wants to be at the club. I give you, Trent Alexander-Arnold. It was always obvious he was going to end up in the middle of the park rather than right back, and for me some of his ability reminds me of a young Gerard, my suggestion is rather than looking for a Coutinho replacement this window, we go for a top right back instead and put TAA in the middle, perhaps the likes of, Vrsaljko, Sidibé, Joshua Kimmich, Elseid Hysaj, Álvaro Odriozola, (just to throw some random names out there for you ed's) . Gomez needs to be given at least some time at centre back and Clyne it would appear when eventually fit is likely to be leaving. So strengthen the right back position, and look to add maybe a centre back if it is still too soon for Gomez and a Goal keeper, if Karius or Ward can't cement their place in the remainder of the season in the summer.

Not a bad call Bruce.

I meant to add to my post, I'm sure I can speak for everyone on here that our thoughts are with you Ed001, never a more appropriate time to say the words You'll never walk alone.

{Ed001's Note - cheers Bruce Lee, I especially appreciate that from my childhood hero!}

Think TAA needs a fair bit more time before he can play in the middle. His short passing is still a bit hit and miss I think. I like the idea of him out wide in a traditional 4-4-2, but that seems to be a thing of the past.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 08:05:53
I’d go Woodburn over TAA, both could do it IMO but Woodburn has the potential creativity and goals that Coutinho takes with him. First choice has to be to use Lallana and Ox though, so its likely only as a sub late on, or in cup games to rest them anyway.

TAA should stick to RB and get really settled in, I’d like to see him a regular starter there next season.

5.) 08 Jan 2018 08:09:16
To be fair, we could do a lot worse than Trent. His goal scoring and creativity from right back is frightening enough. Imagine giving him freedom to attack even more.

I'm not sure we should pin our hopes on him, but if we cannot get a replacement this window, why not give him a few chances in a midfield/ wide role?

6.) 08 Jan 2018 08:12:16
OP, how we will we know if Karius or Ward are the future if Klopp does not give them a full run in the team instead a game once every mont for Karius and one game a season for Ward?

7.) 08 Jan 2018 08:34:45
Both Woodburn and TAA could do it, but in the future. They need to be managed and brought into the first team properly. Not thrown into the creative hole left by Couthinio. That would be asking to much and could hinder there development.

{Ed025's Note - i agree pak..

8.) 08 Jan 2018 09:01:33
I agree to an extent PakRed.

However, most people seem to want Lemar (22), Meyer (22) or Goretzka (21).

TAA is 19 years old. He's getting close to the age where he needs to be playing regularly anyway. I also don't get this talk of a creative hole? Mane will take Coutinho's left wing position. We just need depth so that if one of our front 3 goes down injured, we don't weaken the side significantly.

9.) 08 Jan 2018 11:08:14
I still cannot understand the upset about mahrez, i think he is a good player and bringing him in alongside a more solid midfield player would be much better business than trying to blow 100 million on a jack of all trades midfielder like lemar, still waiting to hear ed001's opinion on mahrez.

10.) 08 Jan 2018 12:44:43
How can you call Lemar a jack of all trades player? I'm sorry but its plain to see Lemar is a much better player then Mahrez.

Spot on RedWolf, we go again. Not our best performance, but generally good. TAA struggled a bit tonight I thought, but generally I thought we looked like we had a game plan and it was really tight, could have gone either way, two great teams going at it for 90 minutes, proves (at the Etihad), that we are "at that level" at the moment, 4 points clear, room to reflect, see how we react, etc.

E002, I would be really grateful if you could comment on whether you think that the large financial investments seeming to be being spent by FSG at the moment on the club are directly related to trying to become part of that group (through a sustained period success on the field), before, the breakaway European league happens? (Which I wouldn’t have known anything about if not for you, so thankyou for your insights) . I assume FSG are well aware of the situation and that it would make a significant difference to their financial investment if we are, or are not involved in the future, or is it simply trying to make the club successful? This isn’t in anyway a dig at FSG, just interested in your opinion.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with that at all. Many of those sides don't earn/spend anything like the amounts the EPL sides do. Bournmouth got just under £125M from broadcasting income alone at the last count - Juventus (a hardly comparable side) got something like £30M less than that, Leganes (a similar level side in Spain) got themselves something like £30M, and so it goes. The English sides are getting the top of the cake's icing financially and are feasting on that. The "elite" sides are based on more considerations than just income. Relationships, morals, standing within the game are all more important and it is not something that will change in the near future for Liverpool - but certailnly we do see other sides move toward involvement - and in the case of one prominent side - stepping aside from it 18 months or so ago. }

An old mate of mine ("back in the day") 's dad used to be a session musician in the 60's playing the Congo's, well there's footage of him at the back of the stage playing when the Rolling Stones did their Hyde park concert, but had unfortunately passed away by the time I knew his son. Anyway, he had a phrase he used to use that got picked up on by a relatively famous musician in a reasonably famous band at the time, "Ob la di, ob-la-da, life goes on, bra". We all want Liverpool do be successful and to be competitive with the best, but whatever happens, life will go on regardless. So much negativity (and worse), at the end of the day achieves nothing, except more, negativity. Of course people are entitled, even obligated, to share their opinions on whatever topic they feel is important, but once the point (in a reasonably respectful way) has been made, going on and on about it is pointless, move on, life's too short.

{Ed002's Note - Sounds like Rebop Kwaku Baah. Great story.}

I love Klopp, absolutely love him, but, at times it's like we don't really have a plan B, he tinkers personnel, however, we essentially play a 433 and when fit Bobby, Salah and Mane up front, with a hard working pressing midfield.

The problem with playing Can, Wijnaldum and Ox, is that when the opposition attacks, they will run around, chase, harry, make tackles and when the opposition as a team is dispossessed further forward, there is more space for our front three to make runs into and the pass to make is more obvious.

When the opposition sits deeper the space is harder to find and IMO our current midfielders have neither the ability to run at players, the vision to pick a pass to make space for others, or shoot from distance effectively enough and you see a performance like last night where the ball goes from side to side until an inaccurate pass is picked off and the opposition can break.

That is something Coutinho at times did give us. I still think we can make top 4 with our current squad, but, switching to a diamond 442 with maybe Firmino and Salah up front ahead of Lallana, or getting more width in the side (we were very narrow last night), by having Mane right and Salah left instead of inverted forwards always cutting in, with Firmino and Solanke up front.

I don’t know, I’m sure Klopp knows the players better than me, but when teams decide to defend we are at times very predictable, but we do possess the personnel to mix things up a bit, (Lallana and Henderson’s long term injuries aside) .

If he (Klopp), does genuinely not think we have, then either, we need to purchase someone this window regardless of whether it is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th choice, or whatever, or he needs, to re-evaluate his footballing philosophy a bit, as CL qualification is year by year becoming increasingly (and I don’t necessarily agree with it) important for clubs with high aspirations to achieve both financially and to attract top talent.

On a side note, what the hell is going on with Mane, half the player he was last season, do you think he needs to be kept in the side for his pace and potential for goals like the Man City one and hope he regains some form as the end of the season looms, or does he need some time on the bench?
Sorry for the long post.
