Been watching a bit more of Bayern this year with the Bundesliga being more competitive than it has in years (Domestically anyway) . Interesting to see Kimmich feature more in the midfield than he has previously at Bayern. He's impressed.

Occurred to me how bizarre it is that two of the worlds best right backs in Kimmich and Trent, might well be better as midfielders. Obviously their "best position" is the one that services the team overall but I just thought it was an odd notion. Not sure if its testament to the quality of the players or a sign of the quality of modern day full backs. Both?


1.) 06 Jan 2020 22:31:42
OP, Kimmich is a DM by formation and by trade, He became a converted RB after Philipp Lahm retired and the other RB's like Rafinha were not getting it done. It was only this season when Bayern signed France RB Benjamin Pavard, did he move back into the DM role where he is even better. Tjhis shows how brilliant, smart and intelligent a footballer Kimmich is.


2.) 06 Jan 2020 22:32:20
i think its just 2 excellent players who have done well when given the chance.


3.) 07 Jan 2020 00:51:59
Yes Trent obviously will make the move but not yet. I think in 2/ 3 seasons once hendos getting on. He’s tailor made for that box to box role. Hopefully neco will be our right back come that time. The futures bright.


4.) 07 Jan 2020 07:41:22
Lerchy, I'm not sure if it is that obvious. He is doing fine at right back and pretty much made the position his own. He might well be more than happy to play out his career at Right back and hopefully become one of the greatest.


5.) 07 Jan 2020 11:10:33
Fair point Irish I’m not sure why I said obviously!


6.) 07 Jan 2020 12:44:41
ed001 why does everybody want to move trent from right back. I don't think he will get as many Assists from midfield and we will have trouble finding a right back as good as him. He suits are team play perfect there. If its not broken.


7.) 07 Jan 2020 15:37:58
Not sure everyone wants him moved there Grino, just fans curious about his potential there. His 'best position' is the one that services the team best, which for now and the foreseeable future is at right back.

Just thought it was perhaps indicative of the role of modern full backs that arguably the two best right backs in the world are being considered (and in Kimmich's case used) as midfielders.


8.) 08 Jan 2020 06:05:00
Worst game I've seen trent play was in midfield that one time in a cup game. Not saying he couldn't play there, he obviously could. Just saying.

Hope the Minamino rumours are true (particularly at the fee being touted) was impressed by him over the two legs. A little more cover for the wings wouldn't be a bad thing.

That said I'd like to see us move for a fullback who can cover both flanks. Though with Milner in the team I guess we have cover for every position.


1.) 12 Dec 2019 14:52:51
I think other than a few positions (I. e forwards and maybe even CB) it’s best to just revisit everything else in the summer and gomez and Milner can cover full back positions as well as some of the youngsters we have. I do think we’re short in some areas in cases of injuries but we’ve done good business in not doing any in the summer and continuing with the progression of the club. In terms of the economics of the club I think we’re in a much healthier position for it, so keep business at a minimum in jan and revisit everything in the summer, where I expect a lot to happen, with maybe 1 or 2 of our big names possibly moving on.

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.

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.

Part of the reason Sakho was originally shipped off by Klopp was his attitude. Consistently being late/ skipping training, not to secure a move, just utter unprofessionalism. Dembele is famous for it at Barcelona.

Also attitude aside he hasn't played consistently well in years and has had massive injury problems. Why spend serious money on him?

Completely agree Hailstones. Would love to see William's getting more game time there with Milner covering when needed. Gomez never seem's as comfortable at right back and doesn't offer as much going forwards as Milner.

Also, not that I want to see him play there given his brilliance in the middle of the park, but Fabinho was a right back for years. Interesting that we've not used him as cover there (at least from my memory) .

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.
