I'd be happy if we made no more signings. Last season our team wasn't the problem it was consistency and breaking down teams that sat back which is more of a tactical issue than a player issue.
When we play the big teams we also look like we can win so it's the so called lower teams we need to concentrate on, we don't need better players for this just better preparation.

I fully agree. Only if Klopp brings in now who he really wants then add new players otherwise shut up shop and go with who we have.

Solanke looks like the real deal and Klopp's comments about him being ready is going to give the lad plenty of confidence. Cannot say I was thrilled when we were going to sign Salah for a record fee but his pace, movement and touch seems to be the missing piece in the puzzle. With Salah and Mane starting, we are going to cause loads of headache for those teams who defend with eleven in the box.

Looking forward to the new season and it is only one week away :-)


2.) 06 Aug 2017 11:35:37
The teams we can't break down is about tempo creativity and style of play - we can press all we want but when they just clear their lines, what good is a press? They then pass it around for 5 minutes slowly. We need to be building pressure, making runs, beating a man - it is as much style as personel, klopp should be addressing this.


3.) 06 Aug 2017 11:40:08
We have the weakest squad and starting line up in the top six, we still concede a lot of goals because of individual errors from Klavan and Lovren aren't things that can simply be coached out of them. We are short of quality and that's going to show over the course of last season. As it did the seasons previously. There's no doubt that Salah is a great signing, probably the best attacking player in Serie A last night.


4.) 06 Aug 2017 11:41:27
you would be happy with klavan as first choice back up and a completely untested gomez as fourth choice?

last season we didn't have enough quality in depth and we ve arguably only added salah that is guaranteed starter material and you think that's enough to withstand the added strain of two games a week when this squad suffered so many injnuries after the demands of just 1 game per week

where is the quality in depoth to allow for rotation for these games

solanke looks a great prospect but he is also untried at top flight level.

{Ed002's Note - Klavan was Klopp's man so it can be assumed he has confidence in him.}


5.) 06 Aug 2017 11:43:15
Over the last 3 seasons under Klopp our major problem has been conceding silly goals of which Mig, Karius, Clyne, Klavan, Lovren and Moreno mistakes have been the reason for the majority of them. Yet we go into this season and all of them are still in the squad and most will start the majority of games. For me nothing has changed for us defensively and no amount of pre season friendlies will change that.


6.) 06 Aug 2017 11:45:18
We could use another center back, imo, but if we can't get someone we actually want, then we're better leaving it. Desperately grabbing whoever was available is how we got Balotelli.


7.) 06 Aug 2017 11:55:43
The most worrying thing is that Coutinho is almost certainly going to Barcelona and we won't be able to replace him.


8.) 06 Aug 2017 12:02:15
Feel as though Klavan cannot win. How many goals did we concede yesterday when he was on the pitch? Did he not also set up Solanke?

He is a good back up player. My concerns surround Lovren and Matip being physically weak as well as injury prone. For the wages they are paid, and the game time they get, I expect much more.


9.) 06 Aug 2017 12:05:11
Frankly you say we are the weakest of the top 6, how many of those teams have beaten us in the last year?


10.) 06 Aug 2017 12:06:17
And Benteke Something Red. Hopefully the club has finally woken up when it comes to panic buying.

All of you complaining about Klavan, be happy that we do not have the likes of Skrtel anymore. If Sakho did not pull his tricks then Klavan most likely would not have been here. He was signed and yes he had has some brain farts but also put in good performances since arriving.

Instead of spewing vitrol towards Klavan, rather show some support. The season is one week away and 'all hope is lost already'. Modern day fan mentality at it's best.


11.) 06 Aug 2017 12:15:18
Chelsea, Spurs and City beat us to 1,2 and 3rd last season. Then season before they all beat us to the top 6. And many more times for top 4 and 6 in the last 10 years. Or are you talking about us being better because we beat them over 90 minutes. Then that would mean Saints, Swansea, Burnley and Bournemouth etc are better than us.


12.) 06 Aug 2017 12:16:04
Just because a manager chooses to buy a player, doesn't mean he has to stick by him. different league, different style. If it doesn't work out, then he can go. just like what happened with salah at one of his previous clubs that we can't mention.

{Ed002's Note - I think you will find Liverpool are still in the same league as they were last year.}


13.) 06 Aug 2017 12:18:09
So did you expect us to win the League last season Jayden?


14.) 06 Aug 2017 12:23:08
Max a bit contradicting how you say modern day fan mentality whilst then having a dig at Skrtel. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. It doesn't make yours right and theirs wrong because their different.


15.) 06 Aug 2017 12:27:25
"Just because a manager chooses to buy a player, doesn't mean he has to stick by him. "

This is one of the most daftest comments I have ever read.

So let's go sign another ten players in this window and if they do not work out this coming season then try offload them the following season. What?

That is why there will never be such a thing as fan ownership at Liverpool. That will be the very end of this great club.


16.) 06 Aug 2017 12:29:05
Jayden my point was related to e weakest squad and starting line up. Not one of those teams managed to beat us over the 10 games we played them. Not 90 minutes. We are clearly not that far behind and have strengthened.


17.) 06 Aug 2017 12:33:18
Max where have I said I expected us to win the league.


18.) 06 Aug 2017 13:15:46
Managers sign players all the time and for some reason or another they get moved on in a short period of time. It happens, look at Cuadrado and Salah for an example. Sometimes they are not what you expected or they don't cope with the speed of the game. I really don't see why Max is getting his knickers in a twist. You did say Max in a previous post that we should only buy players that would 100% improve the team/ squad. Are you telling me that we can't find 2 centre halves better than Lovren and Klavan?


19.) 06 Aug 2017 13:40:03
Well you said Spurs, Chelsea and City beat us to the top 3 spots so what exactly are you trying to get at. Does it matter who we lost to when we finished 4th?

Regarding Skrtel, he needed to go and there was no chance of him making it in Klopp's high tempo game. Skrtel is no longer a Liverpool player, Klavan is so again do not know what you are trying to get at.

Klavan is a choice made by Klopp. It is his signing and will be back up to Lovren and Matip who are first choice unless VVD arrives.


20.) 06 Aug 2017 13:52:02
Irish, it has been made crystal clear, 100's of times that Klopp wants VVD and it is unlikely that any other CB's will arrive if Klopp does not get his man.


21.) 06 Aug 2017 14:13:13
I was replying to the comment that none of the top 6 teams had beaten us. Yes we beat them over 90 mins but 3 finished above us. Klavan is more suited to our high pressing game then? Hence why Lucas was starting at centre half before him for a number of games last season. Good to have a debate with you and nice to read your comments but trying to make out like I don't know what I'm talking about by saying I don't know what you're getting at is a poor mans argument.


22.) 06 Aug 2017 14:49:56
I have to say, if Klavan is a footballer, I've yet to see any empirical evidence to back that up.


23.) 06 Aug 2017 18:28:39
That is just daft, Frankly. Klavan was signed as back up and even tho he had his troubles last season (which LFC CB did not), he still gave us very good performances and was more than solid in those performances (at Everton, both game vs Arsenal, vs City at Home, vs Burnley etc), which is what you want from a back up CB who does not get to play all the time. You always seem to have nothing good to say about LFC overall as all you post is doom and gloom, negativity and insults to players and the manager so again, why are you even with us?


24.) 06 Aug 2017 20:40:20
Frankly. His assist for Solanke. You have to be a "footballer" to do that.

1.) 06 Aug 2017 11:19:46
But the teams around us apart from Spurs have strengthened. So though i agree that we can still be competitive the bigger teams could become harder to beat.
We also now have European games which will also put more emphasis on the squad being good enough.
Being a realist We still need 3 quality additions to have a chance to win anything.


2.) 06 Aug 2017 11:31:22
Plus at the start of last season everyone said that Klopps first season was him finding his feet at his new club. Surely that means Conte, Mourinho and Gaurdiola will be more prepared this season. We've also said our players are a year older so will be better. Now that argument also goes for the other 19 teams in the league.


 

 

03 Aug 2017 17:10:53
So one slightly lighter note today I found out that after 15 years of being on the season ticket waiting list I've now reached the dizzy heights of position 2,454!

One day my son, one day.

1.) 03 Aug 2017 17:26:12
Crazy! What number did you start at? 🤔.


2.) 03 Aug 2017 18:13:31
Wow. I'd be encouraged by that especially with the new stand being considered.


3.) 03 Aug 2017 18:52:58
Nearly there mate, last time I checked I'm 5798 after a mere 14 years on the list 😢.

{Ed025's Note - you have,nt missed much mate..


4.) 03 Aug 2017 18:54:13
They sent out a letter in 2011 to shorten the list to the top 25,000 and then closed the list to new applicants. Moved a bit last year cos of the new stand so yeah if we do another one I may be in luck.

Fingers crossed ey.


5.) 03 Aug 2017 19:03:31
Out of the 8,000 or so additional seats in the new stand, only 2,000 were allocated to new season tickets.


6.) 03 Aug 2017 19:05:53
I was on the list for 9/ 10 years, then missed the renewal in as I was overseas with the army and didn't get the letter. When returning I rang to try and get myself on the list and the club where having none of it, I thought that was pretty rubbish considering the circumstances. Reckon I would have got in when the new main stand was opened.

{Ed025's Note - come over to the blues cobra..weve got loads left mate..


7.) 03 Aug 2017 19:12:56
yeah I remember being charged £5.00 for the privilege to stay on the list (Bargain), looking on the bright side if I was number 25000 I'm doing well 😁.


8.) 03 Aug 2017 19:14:28
I wonder why you do Ed25 😂

30 Jul 2017 07:27:20
So there was me feeling pretty optimistic because we have added 2 first team players to help improve on last season and a great prospect who is looking good in pre season but obviously I'm wrong and should be moaning so here goes:-

Marquee signing - No way he's worth that much! Don't believe we've over spent on him especially when we should be concentrating on other areas

Solid first 11 player - Definatley not good for us, should be looking for much better quality.

Squad player - we can't just keep adding the likes of these players our squad is too bloated as it is

Youth prospect - Why do we keep doing this? Need to buy proven players who can fit into the first 11 right away as he's just blocking chances for other young lads

No one else - Well what a rubbish window this has been, we've really messed up how are we meant to compete with the like of City, Chelsea and even Everton now?!?!?

So whatever happens I'm just not going to be happy - Moan moan moan moan moan.

1.) 30 Jul 2017 07:54:47
I'm really not sure if this is sarcastic or real? Someone help me out?


2.) 30 Jul 2017 08:25:26
Completely agree laughin, think we should also add great manager, looking good under him but didn't win the league last year so should be fired immediately, love our owners, in a much better place than before they took over but they haven't bought neymar and Messi this window so let's get rid of them as well. VVD and Keita, definitely not worth the money, both average players, should definitely not sign them, what do you mean we're not signing VVD and Keita now? They were average when we were signing them bit world class now we're not. And on and on and on.

Redwillis, OP obviously just commenting on exactly how fickle a lot of fans have become. Any reason to moan, even if it contradicts what they have said, they'll still moan, and it's so tiresome. So far, we've added 2 definite first team starters with a possibility of a third depending on speed of progression. If we manage to keep hold of our other players, with hopefully the promotion of TAA to right back and gomez to centre back I believe we would have a very strong first 11 and an awesome bench as well.

So, as we always have, and what we're supposed to be famous for, let's get behind the team, the club, cheer like mad til the final second and stop moaning about absolutely anything possible to moan at.


 

 

15 Jul 2017 15:05:25
So if now as expected we sign Keita, VVD and Robinson along with Slolanke and Salha that's pretty much Klopp's main targets secured. I am therefore expecting a strong title bid from us as I am sure that has what Klopp with have promised FSG or they wouldn't be spending this big.

Come on red men.

If Southampton have scouted him then we should buy him now instead of a year later for double money.

I reckon Firminho finishing is pretty good shout, if he is going to be the main number 9 think he needs to be a little more greedy in front of goal as well.
