Don't knock anything until its tried, I trust the club to make the right decisions, loads of knee jerk, like I say us fans are just to blame, so can't have it every way. There should of been a super league 10 years ago.

scouse john

there would be no point in calling it that it need a more. American type name linked to the strip colour like the Red Socks. Then in a few years it could go from being the Liverpool Red Socks to the Dublin Red Socks and a few years later the Tel Aviv Red Socks. The name has to be transferable or should I say sell-able. These franchises won't be cheap!

This super league sh*te How can it actually work? It will be a farce so what happens when say wolves or neverton carry on investment and get good enough to beat the teams in this league? ( they probably both beat Barcelona at the moment anyways) I blame the yanks, us Utd and probably arsenal pushing for it the most what next " the World Series of soccerball in Europe " gimme strength.

It has nothing to do with owners, the most beneficials are players here. Atm football is unsustainable the way it's going. I just saw few days back Mbape was offered 750k per week that's insane and not sustainable without any changes, neither caps on wages are going to work anymore it's too late for that. In a year or two top players will be earning 1M-1.5M per week so the clubs will have no option either perish or compete at the highest level with some difficult (reform) changes needed to survive/ compete. Situation in spain and other leagues is already bad, top teams in spain are going through financial meltdowns, if nothing changes soon then top teams in EPL too will start having the same effects.

2.) 18 Apr 2021 22:27:33
It has everything to do with the owners! Who do you think has agreed this in principle . The financial situation at these clubs became unstable under the stewardship of these sort of people, what makes you think they'll solve this issue now? They have european competition already, this is greed.

I'm not getting in on all this sell him and buy him crap ( what do I know) but every ball we've hit for the last 3 years as ended up in the back of the net. But all of a sudden we need a striker? Not just a striker a "out and out striker" is that what we called a goal hanger as kids?

I think its pretty obvious what people mean. They just mean a natural centre forward. Firmino is unorthodox because he started out as a defensive midfielder. Salah and Mane started as wide midfielders before they become inverted forwards.

When people say an "out and out striker" they mean a player who gets into the penalty area for nearly every cross. They mean a player who is in the shoulder of the last defender constantly looking to run in behind. Torres, Owen, Sturridge etc.

Like you i'm not really sure who we should buy. Maybe Klopp doesn't want a striker? I have a definitive list of players i want shot of mind you!

2.) 17 Apr 2021 08:30:38
I’m surprised people aren’t pointing out that we were top goal scorers in the league in dec like they did throughout Jan to paper over the cracks. Like the last 4 months haven’t happened.

This is a scenario if we don’t sell any of our forwards or recruit any then next season come Jan we would likely be missing Mane and Salah for 4-6 weeks and be relying on Bobby, Jota, Origi and Minamino. Apart from the season we won the league our form under Klopp has always been a bit dodgy in January but I think if this is the case knowing this far ahead we would only have ourselves to blame if we find ourselves in that situation next season.

I really do hope we move a few players on and we recruit in the summer. Players have been fantastic over 2 seasons but you’re only as good as your last. Quite a few have underperformed this season. But worse than that for me some have brought absolutely nothing to the party at all.

3.) 17 Apr 2021 08:54:23
The problem is that if Salah doesn’t score then as a rule this season, we don’t score, Mane is done, he’s on his way down, that’s pretty evident and Firmino is even less productive in front of goal than he usually is and we don’t score goals from midfield, so the answer has to be a striker who can actually score. Simply hoping this fixes itself is not going to work.

4.) 17 Apr 2021 09:15:06
The way Salah was taking 2-3 touches in the box, out and out striker would never do that. We've always complained despite our front 3 being top scorers they always missed more chances then scored. Now teams have started defending more deeper against us, our front thre especially mane (4 months) fermino (last two seasons) have completely lost their form, too much burden on Salah to score our goals neither our midfield cheaps in with some goals. Don't forget how important Origi goals were during our title winning season those have dried up too.

5.) 17 Apr 2021 09:56:12
Out and out striker like who? Like timo werner? Like who!
Stop this guys there are no guarantees and we have the best front three and salah has been top scorer in the league most times and still is.
Its just been 4 bad months and every one has those. We are just experiencing it collectively as a team unfortunately when almost everyone has gone off or having a bad game every one or two games.
Even harry kane isn't guaranteed to score for liverpool!
We also have elliot back next season and all the injured players back.
Just move keita matip origi get a quality centre back from that money and we are good next season.

6.) 17 Apr 2021 10:13:22
6 times. Unfortunately it was a similar rule for last season as well except it was if Salah or Mane didn’t score we would struggle. Vvd was our 4th top scorer and Trent joint 5th in the league.

Jota has taken the pressure off a little this season but then he missed over 3 months. The fact Jota has more goals than Mane and Bobby this season despite playing less than half the minutes paints the picture.

7.) 17 Apr 2021 10:58:42
Werner was never out and out striker, u need to check he's position where he played before moving to Chelsea. Out and out striker like Aguero, lewandowski etc. Nothing is guaranteed in this life including our breath, that doesn't mean we should stop living. I'm sure if u search the difference between inverted striker and out and out striker you'll get your Answer.

8.) 17 Apr 2021 11:00:15
Akira, Timo Werner is not an out and out striker so that was a bad example. He always plays better on the left of a front 3.

The reason i'm not sure we need a striker is because our front 3 are all seemingly lacking trust in their team mates as much as they lack confidence in front of goal. Therefore they're constantly dropping deeper to try and make things happen. They didn't need to do that when we had Henderson, Fabinho and Wijnaldum (before he gave up as a Liverpool player) behind them.

9.) 17 Apr 2021 12:48:03
haha love it, we need an out and out striker like aguero and lewandowski hehe any other examples we might want to strive for? lol.

10.) 17 Apr 2021 13:30:10
I’m not sure that we have the best front three at all, the evidence this season would suggest that claim is unsustainable.

What is true is that time has caught up with Mane and Firmino, but whereas I can see Firmino dropping back and being an effective centre midfielder, I just don’t think he’s effective in the number 9 role anymore and it’s also evident that Mane is getting to the point where he’s nearly over hill, he can’t beat a player for pace, loses the ball when he takes an opponent on and is hopeless in front of goal.

Jota can clearly take Mane’s place, so we do need someone to lead the line, as our current set up appears far too easy to defend against and given there’s no goals in the rest of the line up beyond the front players, some change is needed. The likes of Haaland and Mbappe are never going to play for us, that is obvious and we shouldn’t waste time discussing them, but Isak, Kalajdzic, Daka are attainable and all are good footballers who can lead the line, but also be intelligent to suit Klopp’s system.

To simply think that if we keep doing the same things with the same personnel next season in the hope it might click would appear to fulfil Einstein’s definition of insanity, repeatedly and unsuccessfully trying the same thing, but expecting different results.

11.) 17 Apr 2021 14:04:09
Faithinworks that was just a small example what does out and out striker means compare to inverted ones. I'm sure like jota, Robo, our scout can unearth if needed one it doesn't have to be big name like, erling Håland etc who's 1st instinct is to smash the ball behind the net instead of taking on players and keep dancing on the box if possible to even take on opposition keeper then score.

Wish people would fook off with the let’s get rid of Bobby shouts. I watched him covering Trent making tackles at right back obviously he not going to score from there but if you guys want to swap him for a goal hanger who am I to argue with stats🤷‍♀️.

Ed666 I was hoping for £35 million but seeing has it’s for charity no probs. good luck btw I’d rather be out of pocket and happy ( new signing) so half hoping you win.

Ok Ed666 I’m game I’ll honour that 👍 what are we deeming “ big money”? I support Alder hey and Cancer research .

scouse john L8

{Ed0666's Note - fantastic buddy. I appreciate it. Two fantastic charities you’ve chosen by the way and it’s game on. ‘Big Money’ is a free transfer lol no only joking. We are in a midst of a pandemic so normal spending is gonna be curtailed would you be happy with say a transfer over £30 million for a centre back deemed as a big outlay?

Matip is one of the best cb’s Klopp knows this and seems to favour him. We stuck by some players over the years who seemed to be prone to injury ( gerrard had back problems, Owen and his strings etc) no one called to have them flogged. Gomez may not get injured tripping over his cat but when he does it’s a serious injury seems to be out for months on end. He is no more reliable than Joel imo. You can all sit here hoping to buy and sell till the cows come home but let me be the voice of reason even if we win the champions league and finish top 4 there will be NO significant investment. All these Mbappe etc rumours are just agent’s using us to broker deals elsewhere. FSG knew we needed defensive cover for months watched us drop like lead cos of it yet waited until the last day to bring in players of potential not established. Just be hopeful joe and Joel can stay fit and that vvd comes back on the same level because they are cavalry .

scouse john L8

{Ed0666's Note - I bet you we spend big money on a Centre back in the summer. £100 to the charity of the winners choosing? Let me go on record as say I’m not an ITK My charity is Make a wish foundation. What say you?

I’m not going to pick a best ( I can’t) but hendo has probably had the hardest job of captaining us. He had to take over from Gerrard at a time when we wasn’t great under bodgers had his own fans on his back saying he wasn’t good enough to play let alone captain us when we won the champions league and he broke down you could see the stress with the rumours of how his dad was fighting sickness and he wasn’t aloud ( by his dad) to visit him etc. He put us before himself I’m glad he got to play under klopp and win trophies and the best compliment I can give him is “ he is as deserving as gerrard was to captain us to our 1st premier league title”.
