Any chance we will be bringing any new players in over the summer. It’s pretty clear that this squad is on a downward trajectory, with all of our usual first teamers underperforming including golden child Van Dijk (been getting away with shocking performances recently) . Our so called best full backs in the world, can’t complete a pass and I think it’s pretty clear that the midfield and forwards need freshening up. Ed02, I just wanted to know what our priorities are, as in, would a midfielder be a priority in the summer or an attacker. Thanks, just for your information, I use the site regularly but the search function doesn’t work on my phone. Sorry.

{Ed002's Note - A midfield player will be a priority and a versatile forward will be added if someone suitable is found.}

Suitable, as in the selling club with let us pay for the player in tiny instalments over the next 34 years.

Everyone saw how badly we needed a new CM in the summer and we didn’t get one, now as per everyone’s predictions our midfield is at bare bones and doesn’t know how to win a football match.


2.) 14 Jan 2022 12:02:18
just my opinion, but it is clear that we need someone in midfield who can come in and make an immediate impact as our midfield has been poor. I'm excited about Jones and hope he will get more playing time. It is also clear that without Mane and Salah, we are toothless up front. I'm not convinced that Jota is the answer and unfortunately Takumi isn't either. I hope that some of the youngsters can come in and make an impact but that is a few years off. Elliott is coming back soon so that will most definitely help, but we still need a creative midfielder.

I certainly don’t think anyone should get their hopes up. The money isn’t there to compete for the best players, that’s the reality and clubs know we need to sell to buy so we’ll be low balled on the players we’d like to move on and have to settle for the likes of Sanches and Traore as that’s all we can afford.


4.) 14 Jan 2022 13:53:17
VVVV, us not being able to compete for the world's best players has always been the reality. This is nothing new. The fact that we have been successful under Klopp is a miracle in and of itself cos that landscape has never changed. Apart from that, I agree with the rest of your post. We are where we are and we just have to deal with it.

yep Henderson looking really jaded since C.V. and has been shocking same as Trent last night. Missing Thiago and wish he could just stay fit. I f i hear any more rumours for DMs when we need a BBM creative mid i will go mad. It's like watching builders labourers play football in midfield, work hard but no skill.


7.) 14 Jan 2022 15:29:49
Doesn't and shouldn't be the reality that we can't compete for the top players.


8.) 14 Jan 2022 18:20:18
I can remember the witch hunt over the last owners that nearly ruined the club. Whilst FSG are a huge improvement, what exactly are they here for? Is it to make profit off our players? It would appear that way. I know that is the world we live in and I accept that, but I really think they should invest a bit more in the club and give Klopp one last crack at success. He’s the best manager around or one of the best, but he’s not a miracle worker and won't be able to win the EPL with the players we have.

On another note, I am actually quietly confident about the Champions league this season. All being well and if C.V. ****s off for a while, I reckon we’ll go far.


9.) 14 Jan 2022 19:03:24
Reading some of the negativity that gets spouted by some people reminds me of a room of spoiled brats. I agree that performances are not what we have come to expect in recent history but I love where our club is at. The league is still achievable and there is a real chance that 1 or 2 youngsters can come through to the first team and really contribute. And I agree with a previous post that we have a very real shout in the CL. There is not a club in the comp that would fancy meeting us in the draw. Incoming players is always exciting but we do have a great squad .


10.) 14 Jan 2022 19:55:46
RN. We have a great 12/ 13 players. And the rest are either kids or not good enough.
It’s more worrying that we as a club, Won’t buy anyone.
Milner 36, Hendo 31, Thiago 30, Van Dijk 30, Matip 30, Firmino 30, Mane Salah Alisson all 30 this year.
So the concerns lie in the fact we’re going to have to replace those great players you mention. Pretty much all at once. Souness tried it. Didn’t go very well mate.


11.) 14 Jan 2022 21:33:56
we've got like 100 midfielders on the books, and people think that FSG are being stingy? shouldn't people be blaming edwards and the scouting department for bringing in lemons? p. s. I don't think the players are lemons, but that seems to be how peeps talk about them.

I'm not with the idea that FSG DON't INVEST IN THE SQUAD because it's not true, it's a lazy argument. I would listen to an argument that says FSG's financial framework limits what edwards and co do, but then that doesn't mean that for the prices they've paid they can only sign dudes who are injury prone.

It's January and the significant business we've done in this month has been preceeded by significant sales. So unless there is a big sale or number of players moving this month then this is the squad we have. and it is a good one. Klopp and co need to get on with it and get the job done. it is a squad good enough to win trophies this season.


12.) 15 Jan 2022 00:33:07
We wouldn’t be struggling for midfielders so badly if Elliot and Jones were fully fit to be fair.


13.) 15 Jan 2022 01:37:33
Guys, remember we bought the worlds best goalie AND the worlds best centre back not so long ago and City/ PSG/ RM/ Barca were alive and kicking at the time!
There is a global C.V. and millions upon millions of people are dying…& unfortunately it’s affecting our owners finances…. but look at the history of their ownership, if they can strengthen us - they will.
They are smart business men and know Jurgen is only guaranteed to be here for another couple of years and he is the BEST manager, so they will try their best to. Support his rebuild - it’s in their interests, but if they can’t - they can’t.
A family member was commercial director of the FA years ago and went off to South Africa to run the World Cup for them, he has given me a small insight into the mechanics of football club ownership and the risks for owners appear to be simply terrifying, you would be laughed out of dragons den if you pitched the idea of ownership,


14.) 15 Jan 2022 08:48:11
We’ve added tsimikas, konate and Jota, all young players and have a few youngsters looking to cement starts in the coming months/ year. The keeper is in his prime and will be for a good few years with a great young backup. Salah could easily play at the same level for another 3/ 4 years he’s that fit, do add another striker and a midfielder and there is no problem.

It’s about adding organically and strategically to maintain cohesion. People need to stop banging on about mass replacements and spending. As some who’s supported LFC for 45 years I am just loving watching this squad.

FSG are the best thing to happen to us in decades. Yes it’s not city money but we are always building, if not the squad then the infrastructure.

Get behind the club and get some perspective.


15.) 15 Jan 2022 11:16:42
We’re well off the pace in the league this year. We were well off the pace in the league last year. And we’ll continue to fall away next year without significant improvement to the playing squad, delude yourself as much as you want but the table doesn’t lie. We’re nowhere near as good as some of you seem to think and that’s because of a combination of not bringing in the right players and not moving on players who aren’t good enough. Anything less than a win on Sunday and our title challenge is over.


16.) 15 Jan 2022 11:35:12
If our title challenge is over then it isn't the end of the world. There's still cups to go for as well as the Champions League, as well as watching young players being given the opportunity to shine.
The club isn't going to fall off a cliff overnight if we are out of the title race.


17.) 15 Jan 2022 15:00:18
Liverpoolfc8 you say we only have 12/ 13 great players but hasn't all the best teams throughout history? Lol we can't have 25 great players and expect them to all be happy mate.


18.) 16 Jan 2022 11:52:04
I agree with vvvv on this we are well behind so now is the time to invest to try bridge the gap rather than falling behind and it taking up to 2/ 3 summers with the right recruiting. I think we all can see what’s needed just need the guys from Boston to start looking at the our team rather other teams and franchises.


19.) 16 Jan 2022 14:06:07
Our situation is nowhere near as bad as some of the doom-mongers on here make out. It is true that some of our best players are reaching an age where they have perhaps past their peak, and we could certainly stand to add a midfielder, but we have an excellent group of players and a world class manager, things are nowhere near as disastrous as being made out.

Haha, this is so true. Even when I come home from holiday and see all the unhappy grey faces smoking outside the airport I find it a culture shock, so it must be hard for these guys moving over to the UK, especially with C.V. and that person Boris still kicking about.

Best way to be. The news is pretty rubbishty these days. A lot of fear and anger out there and there really is no need.

With regards to transfers, it really is exciting when a new player comes in, but I really think our club is in a good position or “moment” as Jurgen would say. We could certainly add one or two to boost the squad, but there is no crisis and no need to worry or fear about the future. I accept we won’t win the league this season, but like we didn’t win it for 30 years but we still have some great memories and better memories from a pretty disappointing era, than spurs or city or any of these big spenders have had. So whilst Sky Sports and the media make this into some sort of Netflix special and feed us whatever narrative suits their motives, I am quite content to just trust Klopp and the Club to do the right thing. I think we are the best we have been since I start supporting the club, and getting a fancy person in with a nice Spanish sounding name might be good for Sky and newspapers etc, but is it really what the club need? I’d rather they developed some of these academy players we have.

Anyway, all this chat about Rice has made me a bit peckish. Away to get my dinner.

Haha, no worries man. Only winding you up anyway. I’m Irish myself, and lived in England for many years in the midlands, so I’m used to being spoken down to and disregarded. I have Indian friends who were also treated exactly the same. It’s no big deal, it’s just the way it is in parts of England. That’s why I love Liverpool. It’s a great city with great people, and none of this superiority elitist crap exists. Just good people, and pretty similar to me 😀.

I usually laugh at some of the ultra PC stuff cos it is just ridiculous but I suppose you have to see if from everyone’s point of view and whilst it might not be offenisve to us, it could be offensive to someone else. That’s all I was getting at really.

{Ed0666's Note - great post Monty totally agree with your thoughts.
