New image uploaded to the
Liverpool Player Sightings page entitled, I don't have a lot of time for Man Utd Fan's, but this was a class gesture. Firmino has been unreal this season.

Theres definitely a swagger to Wijnaldum when he plays for the Netherlands. May well just be that's he's playing a different role for them, but he looks so much more confident making forward runs.

Hope he makes a few more of those this season. Though he did it when it mattered against Barca.


1.) 07 Sep 2019 06:08:16
i think its more down to his different role because every now and then we see him making a run for us and wonder why he doesn't do it more often, which he is more than capable of doing, seen through his role in the dutch side. quality player. absolutely love him.


2.) 07 Sep 2019 09:33:06
He’s great for us. That’s all that matters.


3.) 08 Sep 2019 20:23:18
There is a reason why at one time, Ed01 said in their youth, Gini was actually more highly rated than Messi by certain observers, He is a brilliant footballer, one who can play near ANY position in midfield. His intelligence and football brain is unbelievable. I know he can improve in certain areas BUT for me, it is a joy to watch a smart, intelligence and skillful football go to work for LFC.

{Ed025's Note - gini is a half decent midfielder who can be very good but can also go missing at times (truth), your penchant to over praise liverpool players never ceases to amaze me redwolf ffs half of you wanted shut of him last season, comparing him to messi is your latest offering...what next jordan henderson the next ronaldo?, when your out riding your unicorn next please give my best wishes to rapunzel and snow white and the 7 dwarfs...peace..

Just want to say how fantastic it was seeing the Ox play yesterday. Really excited to see what he adds this year.

I know the performances haven't looked amazing, but it was exactly the same last year. Conserving energy and bringing it when needed. Results are what matters.


1.) 18 Aug 2019 17:03:06
Echo both thoughts. 3 points is what counts and great to see Ox back. Big game next and no doubts Klopp will go with his strongest team possible. I think we’ve used a different midfield Combo for opening 4 games so nice to see we have strength in depth there. Our front 3 again show how important they are to our team. In between games they need to be wrapped in cotton wool.


2.) 18 Aug 2019 18:40:09
Definitely we need too b smart with keeping fresh, arsenal will be dangerous in midfield an up front with Cabellos an pepe coming in, there defence still has question Marks over, any news on keita he has surprised me how fragile he is, also shaqiri must be pissed off not getting a sniff, heard rumours he has been considering his options.


3.) 18 Aug 2019 19:53:27
Thanks Eamonsf, For starting the thread as it allows me to offer my profuse apologies to the "Ox" as i slated him on Wednesday, but yesterday boy! did he make me eat a large portion of humble pie, i thought he was terrific long may it continue.

He has put himself in pole position for that right midfield role as he is more dynamic than Henderson and has a better cross and shot, he certainly has the ability to do for us what De Brunye does for city whipping good passes across the penalty area. City only have De Brunye who can cross from Citys Right we now have TAA and the Ox, two arrows are better than one!


4.) 18 Aug 2019 20:47:22
We all know if ox can stay fit we have a real player on our hands, the injury he suffered was extremely serious an as much as I love him he has struggled with injuries throughout his career . I hope he gets the luck he deserves too play regular an show his quality with us.


5.) 18 Aug 2019 21:00:04
Hailstones, if you want to know why Shaq may not be getting any minutes pls, have the Ed01 fill you in. Everything will become clear after that. I say this cos I see a lot of fans on here (not you in particular) and on other fan sites screaming bloody murder as to why Shaq is not playing as if Klopp owes him a damn thing.

As for Ox, I personally believe that had we had a fit Ox last season, we prolly would have beaten City in both games and prolly won the PL. Why? Simple. It is cos we have seen him at his best in that same midfield position where he ripped City a new one with Fernandinho not being able to get anywhere near him as well as in other games before his injury. He is the one we missed the most in that midfield, not Fekir, Cou or some other fantasy playmaker type. I hopehe can get close to the level he got to pre-injury cos if he can, he will be indeed, like a new signing.


6.) 18 Aug 2019 21:15:36
Yea he definitely looks more comfortable in the midfield 007, his return makes Keita's injury troubles easier to take. Hope Keita has better luck with them and that they're not a long term fixture for him.

Cabellos looked good for Arsenal the other day, but Xhaka is a red card waiting to happen and that defence looks dodgy. I'm interested to see who Klopp starts in the midfield.


7.) 18 Aug 2019 23:10:20
Great to see Ox back but mental statement to say we would have beaten City in both games and won the league if he was fit last season.


8.) 18 Aug 2019 23:46:27
JK23, please offer a logical rebuttal to my opinion (supported by facts) instead of calling other people's statements mental just cos you disagree with them . Just a thought.


9.) 19 Aug 2019 06:55:58
City could have ripped us apart if they had de brunye as Well.


10.) 19 Aug 2019 08:09:06
I think auusieMark just gave a logical rebuttal.


11.) 19 Aug 2019 08:29:12
Redwolf you ask me to base my comments on facts after you base your whole comment on your own opinion saying we would have won the title and beaten City twice if a player who was injured would have been fit. Where’s the facts in that. The fact is we do not even know if Klopp would have picked Ox In the games to even play against City and for him to feature in the other games someone else who contributed last season in those games would have missed out so it would have resulted in totally different scenarios. To me the fact is we missed out on the title last season with record points. A fit Ox may or may not have got us more points but there is no probably (prolly I’m guessing that is) about it. I’m surprised you left out we would have beaten Real in the CL final and England won the World Cup if he was fit also.


12.) 19 Aug 2019 08:30:00
I think I seen ed saying its cos shaq wasn't working hard enough in games, but picked it up at end of season, I thought early on last season he was good but tailed off, still think he has got something too offer though especially this season when we need a squad .


13.) 19 Aug 2019 08:32:35
Aussie, I don 't know about that. Why? Simple. When we had Ox in the three games he played vs City in his preferred position, We won ALL three games, scoring 9 goals and conceding 4. want to know another fun fact? In all three games, KDB played ALL 90 mins. You're welcome.


14.) 19 Aug 2019 10:47:31
It’s a long road back from the injury Ox had, but he’ll get there.


15.) 19 Aug 2019 08:57:39
Ox and Keita will be very important to adding the attacking threat from midfield this year. I thought he looked good in the second half.


16.) 19 Aug 2019 10:34:58
I thought Ox did well on Saturday especially covering for Trent when he bombed forward. Hopefully Ox will play most games this season.


17.) 19 Aug 2019 12:15:29
JK23, of course I think Klopp would have played Ox in those games provided he was fit and had Klopp picked him. I didn't know I had to point out the obvious, clearly. Also, I did believe at the time that Ox would have made a massive difference in the way we played vs RM in the CL final cos I knew we would miss him big time based on his high level performances before his injury. Now I agree with you that for example, had the same scenario with Salah going off and Karius having a meltdown, we would have lost. Either way, I gave and opinion and you gave yours. That was all I was asking from you. Peace.


18.) 19 Aug 2019 12:42:43
Redwolf no worries mate. Didn’t mean any offence when I said the word ‘mental’. That word is used a lot in my work environment when we argue/ debate stuff. You saying you think Klopp would have picked him isn’t facts though and neither is predicting the outcome of a match on a player who didn’t play and you asked for facts. Practice what you preach I believe the saying is. Always enjoy a debate with you and have upmost respect for your opinion even if it’s different to mine.


 

 

12 Aug 2019 22:14:31
Who do you think will be our most important player this season?

For me its between Alisson, Van Dijk, Fabinho and Firmino. I'm leaning towards Fabinho.

{Ed025's Note - VVD without a doubt eamon..


1.) 12 Aug 2019 23:09:13
Alisson for me, if we'd of had Mignolet in goal last season we'd of been nowhere near the top spot and that's the important thing for me. He's the most important player in the team, it starts from that position.

VVD is huge for us but as are so many other players, what I love about this team is we're a real team now, Klopp made this happen. We don't have to rely on one or two players anymore.

Fabinho yes, if he shows what he did last season, this season again, he'll be huge for us.

Firmino I love him, by far my favourite player but the most important for me again is Alisson.


2.) 12 Aug 2019 22:37:00
Mane for me. We have lots of top top class players but Mane is my main man.


3.) 12 Aug 2019 23:23:46
I'm going to say Ox or Keita because everyone is going on about how we need creativity in the midfield. I think their presence and added depth will be crucial to this season.


4.) 12 Aug 2019 23:50:10
Totally agree Stone.


5.) 13 Aug 2019 07:47:16
Ox might get a bit of a run-out tomorrow but I don’t think that we’ll see an awful lot of him, certainly before Xmas. Klopp will play it very carefully with Ox, and he shouldn’t be relied upon. Shaqiri is the one that needs to contribute more fully, as well as Keita imo.


 

 

03 Aug 2019 01:03:11
As its a bit of a slow summer here's a question. Assuming age and transfer fee aren't factors and its completely based on their current ability (otherwise Mbappe may well be the obvious choice) which player would you most like to bring to Liverpool?

There's probably better ways to improve the squad as we already have a stacked midfield but I'm a huge fan of De Bruyne's game when fit. I just think the clear cut chance's he'd create for our front three would be lethal. Would love to hear everyone else's answers and reasoning.

{Ed0333's Note - Good question mate...I’d have Raheem Sterling back because he’d be tasty in our current set up and would cause havoc.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 05:24:01
Definitely KDB/ Brandt. I like the team the way it's set up, but I look at the 3 games against Napoli (Champions League and the friendly) and the way Benitez stifled the full backs. We played our worst games against Napoli. The 2nd league match against Spurs was the same, we scored, had our chances, then Poch stifled the full backs and it became difficult.
If we'd a KDB/ Brandt type in the midfield, then it becomes easier. If Keita plays the way I expect him to play though, I think he can be that guy.


2.) 03 Aug 2019 07:24:40
As good as Sterling is and how well he would do in our current team, he would not displace Mane or Salah.


3.) 03 Aug 2019 07:49:57
Sane or Son 👍.


4.) 03 Aug 2019 08:35:37
Son, KDB and still David Silva, getting on I know but still a top, top player, even just for a year or two he'd make a difference, unfortunately for us, this will never happen. If there's one player I would of really liked to of seen at Liverpool out of the whole of the Premier League era, its him.


5.) 03 Aug 2019 08:54:45
Sane or Son? Why on earth? Mane and Salah have record totals of 22 and 32. Son and Sane have best ever totals of 14 and 10 respectively. They're grossly over rated in my opinion. If you want to get away with average goal returns you have to offer a better all around game than just being fast and having a hard shot. You have to be Firmino or Bernardo Silva level in my opinion. Link play, press efficiently, create time and space for others. I don't buy into the Sané/ Son hype. Sané is one dimensional and Son only shows up for 2 months of the season. They're bench players in our team.

Based on our system I'd probably say De Bruyne or David Silva. Their invention is what separates City and us because we have a better frontline and backline pretty mucg man for man. Throw in Fernandinho and those 3 world class players in the engine room is the game changer.


6.) 03 Aug 2019 09:30:12
Sterling is not good enuff for us, IMO. Why? He misses way too many chances for my liking. Apart from that, he is I don't know how KDB would do in our system so I can't say. I would take Son all day long cos the guy is picture perfect for our system and Klopp has been a huge admirer of him since Son's days at Hamburg and Leverkusen where he scored in ever game he played vs BVB under Klopp. Sane? Nope. He has been found out as only having pace but no consistency and has a wretched attitude.


7.) 03 Aug 2019 10:17:34
Son's good enough but Sterling isnt?


8.) 03 Aug 2019 10:50:45
For me Saul Niguez would be perfectly fitted to our midfield. Play him just ahead of fabinho he gives the perfect mix of energy, aggression, reading and control of the game and also very technical on the ball. One of the most well rounded midfielders in the game.


9.) 03 Aug 2019 12:08:36
I'm as confused as you Little Naby. Son is not fit to lace Sterling's boots. 'Bitter' comes to mind.

{Ed001's Note - that's unfair. Son is an excellent player.}


10.) 03 Aug 2019 14:38:03
Depends on how you gauge excellent Ed001. For me, he seems to start poorly, have a great couple of months, the end the season poorly too. Sterling is a consistent performer in the last 2 years.

Son started life in England looking promising but much like Sane he's simply not improved. Last year he scored 12 league goals. Mane scored more than that for Southampton 4 or 5 years ago. Maybe Son just needs to get Kane Hotspurs FC to shine but he's not a kid anymore and I think he should've improved in the last 4 years. Maybe Poch isn't that great a coach after all.

{Ed001's Note - you are judging purely on goals which says it all. Son shows up when they need someone, that is what matters. As for coaching, Poch is not that good I agree, but not sure how that is relevant. As for Sterling, I don't see the relevance. I never mentioned him.

Son is far better than you give him credit for, he never started poorly, that is just untrue, nor did he end the season poorly. He played wing, wing back, midfield and up front for Spurs when they needed him to. He is an unsung hero of their side and was pretty much the only consistent player they had last season, carrying them when Kane was out. You are ridiculously undervaluing his contribution.}


11.) 03 Aug 2019 15:24:05
Fair enough Ed. Maybe its as you've said in the past regarding other players, that I always catch him on bad days. I've rarely ever seen him play well, but I probably only watch Spurs about 5 times a year.

I only brought up Pochs coaching to try and see from your viewpoint why it might not be Sons fault that he's not improved a lot at Spurs. I'm not saying he's bad by the way. Maybe my wording has come across as too harsh. It's just that he's not good enough to start in our team and would therefore be an odd choice if we had limitless funds to sign one player. I don't agree with signing players for the bench.

{Ed001's Note - he would fit perfectly in the Klopp style and be a genuine challenge for the place of any of the front 3. If Poch would get his head out of Kane's backside and set up the team to suit all eleven players in the side, or at least as many of those eleven as possible, rather than just Kane, they would be a lot better.

I have watched Son a lot, he was excellent before he joined Spurs and it did take him a while to get going there but he has been a standout for them since doing so. They would have been lucky to finish mid-table without him last season.}


12.) 03 Aug 2019 15:51:49
I always forget you live in Dubai and can watch literally every game if you want. I'll try and watch more of him this coming season. I value your opinion enough to be open minded about it. Can only say what I see though. You are spot on about Poch with Kane though. The whole system seems built around giving him the ball so he can shoot from wherever he is.


13.) 03 Aug 2019 10:13:36
Mane and Salah miss sitters all the time specially Mane last season had the 2nd highest big chances missed in the league.

Nailed it 6Times, Pepe, Rodri, Cancelo, Ndombele. all players where I can understand the price tag involved and why our current/ historic rivals went for them. Then There's United splashing out £80 Million on Maguire. Hilarious.

Not even close to an accurate prediction. In your defence Lerchy that’s how the vast majority of confident calls go on this site.

My point was he doesn’t break into our starting 11 unless you’re thinking of replacing mane with him. Not unless we change our formation. While I’d like him, he’s a very expensive rotation option, something that might not be appealing to the player. Again I’ve not heard of any serious interest from Liverpool other then the odd transfer rumour.

Cornet feels far more likely.

Drogie with all due respect, how does he “fit perfectly into our system”? We don’t play with a CAM and he’s hardly going to replace Mane is he?

I’d like a CAM to provide further flexibility, but it’s not our preferred system. If we don’t get him it’s not the end of the world, haven’t heard anything concrete about us being in for him anyway. I’m a fan of his but like the vast majority of us my ‘scouting’ consisted of the odd game and YouTube highlights. Let’s have faith in the actual scouts.

It's from his book 'Ask a footballer'. Football writer Oliver Kay has posted the extract on twitter for those looking. Very much enjoyed that, cheers for the recommendation Idontlooklikeklopp.

Wouldn't mind a trip to planet Origi right about now.

I really like McGinn, But Man Utd were quoted something like '£50mil' before he'd even played a premier league game. Given how important he is to their squad he'd cost a fortune and we're stacked in the midfield. I'd rather just see how the Ox and Keita develop and spend the money elsewhere.

This feels like an overreaction, yes he's been disappointing so far but he's also been incredibly unlucky with injuries. They've greatly hindered his development and more importantly not allowed him the time needed to adapt. Unless his 'attitude' is impacting other players I don't see why we should sell him at would probably be a huge loss. He's still only 24.

We're stacked in the midfield so if there's one thing we can afford him, its time.

Ah sure wonderful news. Big fan of Gomez but for the foreseeable future I see matip as our starting centre back. I doubted the lad but he’s really improved and taken his chance.

Great player but he cost Wolves over £30 million. He's only 28, vital to the way they play and they're an ambitious club who don't want/ need to sell. He'd easily be priced out of a move.

The days of cheeky bids working are gone unless a club is relegated or in financial turmoil.
