In this window, we had quite a few more departures than arrivals, much needed! I think we also brought in more money from sales than we spent on players we bought. This seems amazing as I believe that the quality of the squad is better than last year.
Yes, we are still a long way off the quality we had the last couple of times we challenged for the title (Alonso, Gerrard, Mascherano, Suarez Carragher etc), but the main area to work on is the defensive stability. Hopefully, Klopp's coaching can help here.

I am actually really interested in Klopp's actions at LB. We looked at a couple but nobody that was going to be really a clear #1 at the position. Chilwell had never played in the Premier League right? So we have no idea if he would be better or not if he gets a run of games.

Long time follower, first time poster.

Can I ask why there seems to be a lot of fans suggesting that Klopp wants to sell Mignolet in the summer? It does not seem likely to me because Klipperty just handed him a new contract extension, which seems a waste of time and effort if he didn't intend on keeping him in the squad.

I do not think that this is a strategy to drive up his price because of a long contract, seems unlikely.

Everyone knows this was a stupid mistake by the club and manager. It's just people don't want to accept it as the manger is Klopp. I share the same view as yours, he ain't Suarez to protect his value. Couldn't find any other reason.

2.) 16 Feb 2016 16:05:14
Big fan of Klopp but he made a big mistake with that one. Anyhow, Ed has said that we are looking at a goalie to come in this summer so I would take this extension with a pinch of salt.

3.) 16 Feb 2016 16:07:38
mistakes can be rectified by anyone. imo if klopp can get the goalkeeper he wants, migs will go if not he will keep him and when asked why he has kept him point to the 5 year contract. I do think that danny ward will leave in the summer though, he enjoyed playing for Aberdeen, and at 23yrs old he needs to be playing regularly, perhaps Aberdeen will come back in for him in the summer. ryan fulton will then be promoted to number 2 as I expect Swindon to buy vigureux. just an example of the type of decisions klopp is facing this summer.

It is possible that he is OK with Migs as the #1 keeper but if he manages to attract a top class alternative, he is happy to keep Migs as #2 only for cup games. assuming the owners don't mind having a goalkeeper that cost 9m sitting on the bench.

People need to keep in mind 2 things.

1. He still has to play Mignolet for half the season, including what could be our best shot at CL place next season. Why make unhappy your first choice? Its not as if players never get sold when they're in contract.

2. I know Ed001 (? ) made the point that if the defence was causing issues for Migs then he'd be doing something different trying to compensate but I disagree. That would assume that every person behaves the same. Some keepers will withdraw, become more tentative etc the more their defence keep panicking and backing onto them. We don't know what he'd do with a defence that could play a proper line regularly - not just the odd game - and wasn't getting battered at every set piece by every team.

Don't get me wrong, whilst he is one of the best shot stoppers around for me Mignolet is 6-10 league position keeper not a top 4 keeper. But here's the thing, look at the grief Hart, Cech and Courtois have had when their defence has been pants in front of them and those 3, with De Gea and Loris are the best keepers in the league. A good defence won't turn him into a top 4 keeper but he might not be as bad as we think behind stronger defenders. Despite how much people like to kick the goalie and blame him for all the defensive woes it cuts both ways, if he knows the likes of Sakho are going to lose every sodding header then he might insist on coming himself or he might hold back because he knows he's going to have to deal with a shot, which just makes the keeper more tentative as well.

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? Migs played like this before we signed him, it is not a case of guessing, well you are guessing as you have clearly never watched him play, based on the fact you state he is one of the best shot stoppers around! Laughable comment that. He is crap at shot stopping, letting in easy shots on a very regular basis. That is the point, he should not be first choice, if Ward is worse, then he should never have got this far with our club. If he is as good, then he should be starting as Migs is costing us points on an almost weekly basis.}

6.) 17 Feb 2016 17:17:16
he never makes important saves like de gea, courtois and cech do. also the 1st shot on target from the opposition goes in no matter how poor that shot is, it dosent breed confidence for the defenders knowing that is likely to happen. The best thing all round for him and us is a parting of the ways.

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool have conceded the second least shots on target this season, Migs is meant to be a good shot stopper, so why is our goals against record so poor?}

7.) 17 Feb 2016 18:37:15
summed up perfectly ed. you can't expect to challenge for major honours when you have a crap goalkeeper. I put him in the same bracket as boruc and gomes mannone etc that's how bad he is.

{Ed001's Note - at least those 3 have good days.}

8.) 17 Feb 2016 18:56:28
that just makes it worse ed! it just shows how bad he is.

Its important to develop as a player in the first team, so a loan is great as long as he gets consistent game time. It's up to him to show he is good enough to be in the match day squads.

he has stepped over the line several times. maybe Klopp does not feel he can control Sakho. if the boss cannot work with you, you are not going to have a job in any professional walk of life.

It seemed the incoming De Boer was not keen on paying anywhere near the asking price for Sakho. In this case even though he has permission to agree personal terms, it is a bit meaningless since Palace would never agree to our fee.

He runs the Academy for Southampton.

you might think that is true, but Southampton also gets signings wrong. How many of their purchases become a VVD or Lallana or Lovren? How many do not? And a 3m or 5m signing going straight into the Southampton first team may not perform or develop being thrown straight into the LFC first team and if they don't play consistently may never develop into a player LFC wants to buy.


{Ed007's Note - Wanyama and Forster have done not bad too.}

Leicester's squad was terrible relative to the top 6 and they won the league. So it shows anyone can do it. Yes they had a couple of good players and in a year where the top 6 all exploded! But the point is that it gives hope to everyone in the league about where they might finish.

What is interesting about this post is that if Everton makes top 6, who misses out?!

Why do people say Koeman has serious financial backing from the board? Based on just quoted trasfer fees in the press, they have a net spend less than LFC so far. I agree that when you sell the star player, like Suarez/ Bale/ Lukaku, there will be a period of difficulty maybe.

Its a coded message that RBL have no intention of selling him.

Lucas is already gone. Any if another needs to be let go to accomodate for Keita, it might be Can if the contract situation is not resolved.

But seeing as we are fighting on more fronts next year, shouldn't selling Lucas and acquiring Keita (if it ever happens) be enough?

Not sure I understand how Sessegnon was our "1st choice" LB. Were we supposed to buy him and then he walks into the 1st team? or was he supposed to be one of the squad to compete with Milner and Moreno? Why would our first choice be a 16 year old? Would we not have had to buy another more experienced LB? Otherwise Milner would be the main starting LB again and I can see that most of you would not have wanted that.

Did everyone really feel they wanted to have a 16 year old in that position?
