The definite additions of Keita and Fabinho will strengthen an area of the team that was found lacking at the very top level last season (if the pressing doesn’t put us in any surmountable position before they tire) . I expect our midfield options next season to be Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wijnaldum. I think Lallana will leave and maybe also Milner once he has had a chat with Klopp about his plans for him.

I think the defence that played in the final will be adequate, especially with better protection from midfield that Fabinho should provide I would like better than Matip as cover but, with Gomez and Klavan, I can live with that.

The front 3 are the front 3 and need no explanation. However, the backup is poor. I think Ings May leave and Solanke is not or may never be good enough (that’s up to him to prove) . We will sign at least one other player that can play up front or in midfield. That may or not never Fekir. If so, great. If not, we may be surprised by whoever they come up with as the alternative.

That leaves the critical position of goalkeeper. None of those currently at the club are good enough to take us where we want to be. This is the signing where we need to push the boat out to ensure class and stability for the next 5 - 10 years. We don’t want to be discussing this situation every summer, or changing keepers mid-season or rotating keepers. Bite the bullet and get it sorted now. It will pay for itself over and over again.

So, although I would like more, I would be very happy with just 2 more; a versatile player to cover the midfield / front positions and a CLASS goalkeeper.

If you do disagree with my post, please don’t let it be to give Karius a chance. He has had enough chances and is simply not good enough.

Agree. He's had his chances and blew them all. I'd be looking at the best Available Oblak or Allison.


2.) 02 Jun 2018 14:18:06
Fekir, Allison and Dembele / Winger would win us the league. Now it’s up to the club what they aim for next season, CL places or Title.

{Ed002's Note - Even if Salah went to Manchester United instead of Real Madrid?}


3.) 02 Jun 2018 15:02:14
OP, First off I am not here to say Karius should be given another chance or not cos that is up to Klopp alone and no one else. Now, this talking point that "Karius has had many chances" is simply incorrect and patently false. You must be confusing him w/ Migs cos if anyone has had "many" chances, it is Migs. The guy made more mistakes in the first 5 games than Karius made all season.

Karius has been here for two seasons and only got a full run in the team with 15 PL games left and tho he has been average in some games, he has been very good in others (10 clean sheets in 22 games overall) and like it or not, he led the CL in clean sheets. I know some will say "It was cos of VVD". Again, patently false. DDG won the award for the most clean sheets in the PL. Does he play by himself? So if DDG is getting the credit for the clean sheets then Karius should get it for his record in the CL. The same rules MUST apply to everyone and had Karius not made those mistakes in the CL final, the general consensus was that he had earned the job for next season even tho his flaws still needed to be ironed out. Pls, let us stop this falsehood that "Karius has had many chances". He has not and if anyone has, it is Migs who has been killing us for FIVE years until Klopp pulled the plug.


4.) 02 Jun 2018 15:23:08
BRover you are right Karius does deserve credit for the clean sheets as do all the back 4. However Karius also then deserves the criticism of throwing the ball onto Benzema's foot and the inability to catch a shot straight at him against Real and the one he got away with against Roma.


5.) 02 Jun 2018 15:33:56
Oh my Ed02, was that a hint that UTD are interested in Salah 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳. You are teasing us 😂😂.


6.) 02 Jun 2018 16:02:00
BRover, do you like watching a team that doesn’t win anything? That’s what we’ll all be doing if you get your deathwish to keep faith in Karius.

Anyone can get a clean sheet in a game where you don’t have to do anything. Goalkeepers warm their reputation by making vital saves in games where they are called upon.

Stop feeling sorry for Karius, he’s history. Klopp is not that stupid to hang his reputation on an error prone goalkeeper. He thought he might have been able to make something of him by playing him but all it achieved was more mistakes

If you want to bet me £20 to charity, I say that Karius will not start the season as number 1. If he does, I pay, if he doesn’t, you pay. I’ll give you a little warning in that I had a similar bet last season with one of the Eds, saying that Mignolet would start as number 1. I can’t remember which Ed it was, so don’t know if he donated or not.


7.) 02 Jun 2018 16:11:03
BRover whilst I respect your post and there is some logic in what your saying, I think stats like this require you to watch what is happening as well. Karius in a lot of those games had absolutely nothing to do. How many top class saves do you remember him actually making? I can remember 2 or 3 from the top of my head in the run he had last season which is well more than 15 games in all competitions so let’s not try to act as if he hasn’t had enough games. He made similar mistakes last season and Mignolet was getting shunned during his second season here if not before, Karius should be treated no different. Both seriously error prone goalkeepers, and these aren’t soft errors that anyone can make these are complete blunders that cost us points/ titles.

Personally I believe Karius should be kept but we need a goalkeeper fit to challenge and take the number 1 spot off him. That way Karius can really prove himself as the bar is set much higher than Mignolet. He either proves himself and reclaims number 1 spot which wouldn’t show incredible mental strength after what’s happened, or he leaves and goes to the level we all think he’s at. It’s up to him, but this risk taking with keepers has to stop if we want to achieve the top honours. We finally have a defence and potentially a midfield than can keep up with our attack, now fit the final piece of the puzzle and maybe we’ll win something finally.

Just watched some clips of Fabinho and, while clips are not a reliable barometer of a player’s ability, the thing that stood out in all of them is that he always won the ball cleanly and his first instinct was to look forward and pick out a runner.

If he can do that for us he will be immense as we have some of the best runners in world football. Keita seems to be a player who is good at carrying the ball and can drive forward so should complement him very well.

FSG, please go out and get Fekir and our dream is complete.

Ps/ I strongly fancy us for one of the domestic cups next season as we will be able to rotate without seriously weakening the team.

redmersey

1.) 29 May 2018 10:34:42
If we get Fekir then we are winning the league.


2.) 29 May 2018 10:58:43
If we want to win the league I still think we’d need another pacey winger and a world class goalie. So a summer of Keita, Fabinho, Fekir, Alisson and Malcolm/ Pulisic then I think we can we the title. Maybe a cb too but that could come in January maybe. We will see. Either way things are looking very positive for next season!


3.) 29 May 2018 11:16:53
Fekir, Alisson and another winger definitely needed to go toe to toe with Man city especially with AOC unlikely to feature much next season. Dembele on loan would be the cheapest option but makes sense until Wilson is ready to play in our first team.


4.) 29 May 2018 11:21:17
If we get Fekir and a GOOD keeper then we will CHALLENGE for the league!


5.) 29 May 2018 11:57:02
I dun think we are getting a pacy winger . It will be Wilson or Woodburn.


6.) 29 May 2018 13:13:17
Buzzer - you're exaggerating slightly, he should be back with us by November ish so by the time he's properly match fit andsharp again we should still get half a season out of him.


7.) 29 May 2018 13:23:43
Harry my dear friend I wish that was true but if city get their targets they will be winning the league and will get more than the 100 points achieved this season.
Let's hope they don't get their targets. If we get fekir and a quality keeper I see it finishing City, arsenal liverpool Chelsea man u spurs.

The morning after and time to reflect. We lost a football game, albeit a massive one, but we lost a football game. We weren’t hammered but were beaten by a goal that happens once in every blue moon and 2 avoidable mistakes, after our most important player was targeted and deliberately taken out.

I can’t believe idiots wanting Klopp out. He is the only manager for us and is gradually getting us to where he wants to be. Who do you want to replace him - Sam Allardyce? It’s also unfair to talk about his record in Cup Finals. It wasn’t as if he was expected to win all of them. His teams were just not quite good enough. Incidentally, we have lost 3 out if the last 4 European Cup / Champions League finals. Are they all Klopps fault?

People are free to comment on Karius’s ability but are out of order is they abuse or t threaten him or his family. Anyone who does that is not wanted as part of the LFC family. If Karius is moved on it will be because he is the same as any other players who are moved on, because they are not good enough or have replaced them with better.

Opinions differ but Klopps is the only way that matters. For example, many say we need a new centre back to replace Lovren but I thought he was immense last night. The same people blindly support Karius who makes a lot more mistakes than Lovren.

I trust Klopp to bring in the players that will improve us and most of them should be in midfield who can also play further up if one if the front 3 are unavailable. We need to bring in midfield players who can do mire than just press, as when we play top quality teams they always dominate possession over us. When that happens the front 3 are starved of service. The press might give us a good 20 - 30 minutes where we can sometimes kill off the game but we will tire and le and back onto the game. Imagine Salah, Firmino and Mane being serviced by more creative midfielders such as Modric, iniesta and Erickson ( not saying they are the players we need to go for - just examples.

If you don’t like losing, don’t follow football as every team in the world will lose football games. The great Liverpool team in the 80’s didn’t lose all that many games, but when they did, they lost with dignity and spo sportsmanship. That’s what we need to do.

Although it will be very nerve wracking tonight we should do our best to enjoy it and hope that the boys perform as we know they can and don’t let the occasion get to them.

Remember the years before Champions League when finishing 2nd wasn’t enough to get you in it the following year. Remember the seasons since Champions League when we didn’t finish on the top 4 and missed out. Remember the years when we didn’t get out of the group stages and remember the years when we were out early in the knock out stages.

Remembering all that, look where we are now - in the FINAL of the Champions League. There are hundreds of teams throughout Europe, many of them big names, who would love to be where we are tonight. Many of them would gladly grind out boring results for the privilege of being there. We have earned the right to be there, playing scintillating football. We are well capable of playing that football again tonight and bringing the trophy home.

But football is football and anything can happen. I think we are ahead of our development plan and, although it would be fantastic to win it, let’s continue to look forward if the worst happens. If that is the result of an individual mistake, let’s support that player and continue to support that player and move forward. The best us yet to come.

We have come a long way in a few years from the days of not being in The Europa League to the pinnacle of European football. Do your best to enjoy it and let’s hope we are celebrating around 10pm tonight.

YNWA Allez Allez Allez.

Just to add redmersey it was just 3 short years ago . Stoke 6 Liverpool 1 .


4.) 26 May 2018 11:18:03
Very true Hugh Mungus. I remember how I felt after that game and where we are now seemed light years away. Win or lose, recruitment in the summer is crucial if we are to continue our journey. Too many times poor recruitment has thwarted our progress. However, I think Klopp is the perfect man who can build on the progress, judging by his record in the transfer market since he came. He is actually doing what many have said we needed: ie quality over quantity.

It would be nice to see Mo equal Rushie’s 47 goal record with a hat-trick in Kiev.

redmersey

1.) 13 May 2018 17:26:53
It would be even better if he smashed it with 4.


2.) 13 May 2018 17:27:50
True, but it means nothing if we lose 4-3.

I'd take a 1-0 victory with goal deflected off Ramos' butt 😂.

Sibsama even better, his face.

Fekir is chilled about it. He’s gone back to the hotel to watch a DVD while waiting for the announcement. He’s watching ‘Meet the Fockers’.

My info, which is generally good, was that he failed the first medical because of issues he had with a knee injury in 2016, but he was having another one this afternoon.

Typical keyboard warriors on here. Butland, who has yet to make a mistake for Liverpool yet, getting slated in favour of a keeper who has made more mistakes than he’s made saves.

Butland is light years better than Karius and I can’t understand everyone saying he will be no improvement. If we picked up a keeper from the Conference he would be an improvement on Karius.

{Ed0333's Note - good evening Mr Butland didn’t know you frequented the site.

Lavers, Butland is no improvement on Karius? You should have applied for Britain’s Got Talent, they could do with a good comedian.

When they first gave part of the Sky package to Setanta they said it was good for the consumer as it gave them more choice. No it didn’t! All it did was make them pay more. Now this Amazon thing is a joke. I wasn’t to watch footy on my telly, not on my laptop or phone. I don’t want to have to connect it my phone to stream it to the telly. I just want to sit down, seitch the telly on and watch the match.

The Premier League are a disgrace. No wonder Scudamore is doing a runner.

To make matters worse, when I checked my statement this month I was charged £7.99 for Amazon Prime Time and I haven’t even asked to join. It’s s nightmare trying to get in touch with them to cancel and ask for my money back.

I don’t think he’s been bought for right back primarily and, by all accounts, the player now sees himself as a midfield player. However, he may get games there, depending on the form of TAA and Gomez (I don’t think Clyne will figure unless he upset his game massively in pre-season.

Klopp has seen his current midfield press and press until they tire late on or can’t do it from game to game. He will rotate midfield players depending on tactics, form, opposition or injuries. Don’t forget the Ox will probably miss 3 months and others will come back late to training after the World Cup. I can see us making a heavy play for the League Cup this year in order to get some silverware on the table early and take a bit of pressure off Klopp. To do this he will need to be able to bring quality players when he rests others.

In my opinion Fabinho has been bought for midfield.

Wilson is better than 6 of the 10 you listed, MK. Whether he’ll get games before them is another matter.
