A change I’d like to see Arne entertain next season is our wingers cutting in less and trying to get past their markers.

Or more and better crossing from overlapping fullbacks.

I said when we signed Nunez we should play to his strengths, maybe Arne may actually do something meaningful to get the best out of him.

And can Szobo do that job from the right if Salah leaves? Or is Salah able to be redeployed as a CF to get on the end of the crosses?

Bradley looks capable of supporting on the right, and we know what Trent is capable of.

Robertson is still the man for me on the left but needs a competent backup/ competition in my opinion.

Unfortunately Lord Arne plays the inverter full back system.

 0


16 Jun 2024 15:20:05
Pretty sure you will get your wish, slot’s wingers at feyenoord don’t invert and stay out wide.

 2


16 Jun 2024 15:53:51
Is crossing more balls in playing to Nunez strengths?

 0


16 Jun 2024 17:21:25
I think one of Slots main priorities will be to set the team up to get the absolute best out of Nunez.

Jaguar, it appears that you are a bit confused because there isn’t such a thing as an ‘inverted full back system’, given that the way arsenal, spurs, feyenoord and ourselves under kloppinvert our fullbacks are completely different, the roles zinchenko have at gunners and Trent has in klopp’s system are completely different, don’t put ‘the lord Arne’ down before he comes in the door simply because you have it in your mind that inverting a fullback automatically means footballing failure.

I wish one of nunez's strengths was putting more of the many clear cut chances his teammates create for him in thE back of the net.

JK
I would say no and it’s certainly not Salah’s.

16 Jun 2024 19:23:30
Irish I agree. We were the 2nd most crossers of the ball last season in the league.

We seem to want to stop playing to everyone else’s strengths just to play to Darwin’s.

We don’t even know if he is Slots first choice centre forward even.

16 Jun 2024 14:33:07
Gakpo showing everyone what a fantastic player he is when played from the left. Absolute shame he gets played everywhere except form the left.

 0


16 Jun 2024 14:37:35
It’s the pace of international football, it suits him more.
Slots style may suit him too.

The premier league is quicker, higher intensity, less time to process the game. Needs higher mental acuity.

16 Jun 2024 14:47:34
On a different note. Seems like trent is being set up to be the scapegoat for this tournament in advance.

 2


16 Jun 2024 15:03:36
He’s like a one man bulldozer getting them down the field on the left flank running at fullbacks from deep or shielding the ball, looks like the player we had running down the left wing the last few weeks of the season alright.

16 Jun 2024 15:07:13
Ah but Jay Bothroyd said he's rubbish. So that's it then, isn't it lads?

England are crap. Wouldn't worry about trent.

16 Jun 2024 19:02:07
But we need a scapegoat for this tournament before we've even kicked a ball.

16 Jun 2024 19:21:32
"Poland are cooking VVD".

I must have slept thru that one cos it NEVER happened. Oh and if you are talking abut the Poland goal off the ocrner, he wan not outjumped cos with Holland playing zonal marking (where you mark spaces, NOT players), the guy had the run on him and scored which is why I hate the system.

16 Jun 2024 19:24:58
Ron Keague, not sure what you mean by mental acuity BUT Gakpo has all the tools required to play in the PL, IMO.

 0


15 Jun 2024 12:34:08
Even though he played for the other side its sad news about Kevin Campbell. 54 is no age. Thoughts are with his family.

We definitely need someone to replace Konate. That lad is an accident waiting to happen. Never happier than seeing Konate on the bench.

 0


15 Jun 2024 11:14:41
He has to cover his position and cover for Trent when he moves into midfield
For me should always start when fit.

I am beginning to think that opinions should not be allowed on here. 😂

I can only take so much of deeply insightful and penetratingly analytical opinions in one day. 😩.

Good athlete, poor footballer.
A better player shouldn't be too difficult to find.

15 Jun 2024 11:31:49
What about this Dutch player de ligt any chance of him coming to partner big virgil?

 1


{Ed002's Note - Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Player was happier with Tuchel as coach but changes make his future less clear. With ten Hag still at Manchester United he may well be interested but he would not be top of the list with other preferred targets. Bayern have no interest in selling although they are persisting in chasing another CB themselves and the new coach may look to ask him to be moved on to raise funds. Agent would like him to move and has spoken with at least Chelsea, who have preferred targets, and Newcastle. Price may put clubs off.}

15 Jun 2024 12:22:48
If I had my way @ArAy ….

Seems that Quansah will need to step up next season. Joel gone, Nat P and Rhys W seemingly making their way towards the exit. Joe going to Bayern, Virgil going to Saudi (apparently to become the highest paid defender in the world, which would presumably mean the highest paid defender ever? ), and now Ibou being voted next man out of the house. Looks like our defence will be light on next season.

 2


15 Jun 2024 12:53:05
The club ideally needs more than one center back addition for the upcoming season. This page think otherwise.
VVD aging, Konate Injury prone, Matip gone, Quansah (Young), Gomez (gone) .

 1


15 Jun 2024 12:57:17
Im always happy when he's in the starting lineup. Beast of a player, covers that whole right side.

15 Jun 2024 13:15:26
I’m all for opinions on here but this just comes across as a troll windup post to incite a reaction.

15 Jun 2024 13:19:13
Where’s Gomez gone?

15 Jun 2024 16:10:09
If virg has a bad year next year navy Keith the seasoned scout of an OP will be telling us that he knew since he saw him play as a 12 year old
In Groningen that he had flaws in his game that he could never make up for….

Pot, kettle, black. You all get what I mean. (And I've skillfully avoided the "misogyny and homophobia alert buzzer", and whatever else 😉) .

15 Jun 2024 23:36:39
To be honest ArAy, I have no idea what you are on about. who’s the pot and who’s the kettle and to be honest the racist reference to the colour of the kettle didn’t go unnoticed 😉.

16 Jun 2024 08:18:46
A player that was MOTM in a CL final just TWO years ago. A guy who was MOTM in that cliffhanger of an FA Cup tie at Arsenal where he royally outplayed the so-called" Best CB in the PL in Saliba, is suddenly now a poor fottballer? Absolute waffle.

 4


16 Jun 2024 08:55:56
I do think saliba is the best cb in the league besides Virgil though, oli 😆

For whatever reason deschamps doesn’t fancy saliba and will probably stick with upamecano as the partner for ibou at the euros for some unfathomable reason

As for ibou, when he stays healthy and has a good run of games he is a fantastic, mobile and aggressive center back who covers a lot of space and is decent on the ball (in that way he is like the equivalent of Gabriel for arsenal ), when he got his last injury he didn’t look as good though of course…still would anybody deny that a healthy konate is among the top 20 center backs in Europe? It might be that slot doesn’t fancy him because he isn’t enough of a carrier/ passer at the back but it certainly won’t be because he’s not a top level center half.

 2


16 Jun 2024 10:33:29
Oli, who was MotM in the CL final? I thought it was Courtois.
I accept that Konate was better than Saliba in one game. It's great that he can he do that in one game but it's telling that many people see Saliba as the best centre back in the PL. It's probably because he's a better footballer than Konate for more than one game.

16 Jun 2024 13:10:00
For two years Messi missed 15 and 19 games through injury prior to 08/ 09 season.

Fans kept saying he couldn't make it because he was too injury prone and what good is an injury prone player anyway?

Then Messi had four years with no injury completely out of nowhere and nobody made those comments again.

 0


16 Jun 2024 15:06:01
I really liked the look of Calafiori yesterday. Possibly a good one for the future. LCB, 22, very mobile, started his career as a LB, and known for building out of the back. Was said to have had a very good season at Bologna.

Looked the type of player for Liverpool's system. No idea if the talent level is really there, but is an intriguing prospect.

@Frode, Gomez has gone to Germany. Perhaps he might come back.

I never realised man utd's squad was quite so bare, that's thing to take a while to fix with PSR already being an issue.

Shame, that. 🤣.

 2


15 Jun 2024 12:24:13
At least they still have Seven.

 5


15 Jun 2024 21:11:14
Rugby, bare and yet their payroll is the 4th highest in the EPL (and 51% higher than LFC's) . Sounds like superlative management to me.

Oh yeah, they won the FA Cup. It's alright then. 😉.

 2


16 Jun 2024 01:16:05
I expect they’ll pay over the odds for established ‘names’ without any real strategic planning and produce the same patchy form they have done for the last. 3 or 4 seasons. I’m surprised that Seven is still there - perhaps the are waiting for Ancelotti, Alonso or Klopp 😉 for the 25 / 26 season. Hopefully the ground is still standing then - Seven at the Theatre of Streams.

14 Jun 2024 17:57:18
Why do people say . get rid of gomez etc to bring money in to help with new players . when u need to replace a very good player who can play numerous positions that'll cost more money to replace . yet some say keep salah n let him go for free next year . losing upto 100 mill. I love salah . but he 31/ 32.might be going the Olympics, hasn't played as good as he used to. surely 100 mill is better than the 20 odd mill for gomez . I know he's a legend but can't afford to do that can we.

 8


14 Jun 2024 19:03:35
Not the Gomez discussion again, flogging a dead horse with this discussion.

 7


14 Jun 2024 19:19:12
nobody is paying 100 million for Salah when he can be persuaded to sign for free next summer. Also Salah is not finished or anything, he was rushed from injury by Klopp and was taking pain killers to play! He'll bang 25-30 goals again next season. How many assists did Joe Gomez get from RB and LB?

 3


14 Jun 2024 20:52:07
Mcgov. if u don't loke it . scroll past . simple . Fisketprett. but salah won't be scoring 25/ 30 this season . n then he b off for nothing . Gomez came on done great in every position he played . how many goals did he prevent.

 3


14 Jun 2024 18:39:31
At the end of the day we all have opinions and I think it’s ok to express them but it’s only down to the board to decide. If slot has an idea and that involves selling Gomez then am backing slot.

14 Jun 2024 23:41:52
We’ve seen the best of gomez so if someone’s interested in him for 20-25m then why not bring in someone younger and equally versatile such as geertruida or huijsen who will only develop and grow as a player.

15 Jun 2024 01:06:08
June is right, it has been done to death. It's got to a boring point. Let's just see what happens.

15 Jun 2024 04:32:44
Honestly there isn't anything new.

Keep coming here 5 to 6 times a day and nothing new.

Square Tomato used to give quality inputs on Joe. not seen him here for long.

nothing from Macca these days.

 2


15 Jun 2024 06:55:37
Sami, square tomato was on the other week discussing Trents contract from memory. He hasn't mentioned Joe in a while, would be interesting if he could give an insight.

15 Jun 2024 08:03:01
It wasn’t so long ago that replying to someone’s thread, I suggested that Joe Gomez should be in the conversation for player of the season… and lots of people agreed. Yes he lost his playing time once Robertson was fit again, but he hadn’t let anyone down and I wasn’t worried at all when I saw his name on the team sheet. Is he the best left back in the world…. no! Will he do a really good job anywhere across the back 4… very much so. He is home grown and our longest serving player. You tell me a better 3rd, 4th, 5th choice (depending on who you listen to on here) home grown player in the prem, who can cover all the back 4 and is willing to come and sit on the bench for large parts of the season and I am all ears. If Joe wants to stay then I’m all for it.

 7


15 Jun 2024 11:16:08
I have a gut feeling Salah will surprise everyone next season. I really hope he will.

15 Jun 2024 11:17:52
It's ok to want to keep or sell Gomez but don't compare him to Salah, please 😂.

15 Jun 2024 11:55:35
Fisketprett, nobody signs for free. Mbappe signed for ‘free’ for Real Madrid but they paid him over £100m signing on fee to get him.

As of last night Taylor Swift has more appearances at anfield than Arthur Melo does.

What a loan signing that was. 🤣.

Wassa Brilliant

Can she play DM or inverted fullback?

14 Jun 2024 11:05:31
And before anybody starts - a) it’s a joke and b) I meant for Liverpool.

I know he played for Barcelona against us. 🙄.

The Melo signing. boy, that was a Cruel Summer, though looking forward to the window opening this year in the next Fortnight.

14 Jun 2024 11:09:39
DM JK, notoriously tight at the back, big pair up front, we have a hell of a contest on our hands here, let’s hope they can get round the back and penetrate, it could be all over quite quickly.

14 Jun 2024 11:16:36
Not really JK, she’s more tailored to the right wing and swift!
