Got a feeling it might be a big summer ahead for Mr Klopp. I read on sly sports that talks have already begun with potential summer moves through certain clubs and players agents which I love, think purchasing players nice and early in summer helps them settle dramatically and enables them to go on pre-season tours and bond with manager and fellow team mates barring any international duties they may have. iam not particularly sure if we have a bigger youth team or whatever they get called these days compared to other prem clubs but Klopp has mentioned that IF we qualify for champion league then the squad is going to need enhancing as it currently isn't big enough. I jus hope we are open and honest with the younger players and other players we have out on loan and let them know if a future at lfc is possible. if not then sell em on instead of loaning them out all the time. this can't be good for club or player if I'm being honest our loan system policy is rubbish! I can see a lot of outgoings in summer and expect a fair few of the youngsters to be moved on permanently aswel. with a few first team additions added. quality of tbe additions depending on champion league or not. either way I think it could be an eventful summer at lfc.

Quantity doesn't need enhancing.
Quality does need enhancing.

quality over quantity all day long, I jus hope Klopp and scouting system see it the same way.

We need to get rid of the crap and replace it with the good. This doesn't mean we have to add a ton load of players to the squad, includong potential youngsters we have too much as it is. It really can be quite simple. Well said as always Ron.

I think Klopp saw quality over quantity last summer. So far so good.
18 Feb 2017 14:28:16
Agree with Ron (again), quality over quantity.

Can't see klopp signing a load of rubbish so I'd assume it will be a few quality players to add to the first team this improving the squad.
That's how a squad is built, what we use to do was buy squad players thus making no difference to the first team.

If Klopp pulls a Brendan, kid in a candy shop style then next season is well and truly buggered.
Luckily Klopp has not pulled a kid in a candy shop move since he arrived and cannot see him venturing into such madness.

I'm sure potential signings will be based on whether we achieve CL Footy.

Adding new players means selling some of the current players like Can which is again not welcomed on this page what an irony.

Klopp doesn't buy players that won't improve the team immediately. That was BR's way for the disaster we now know of. We need about 18 players of equal quality in the first team and then pad the squad with the youth players we know can step up. I trust Klopp to do he job as he got us Matip, Mane and Wiji that have massively improved the first 11. We need about 5 more quality players for depth and to plug the wholes still lacking in the team.

It doesn't matter what he buys what matter is always the quality. New signings should go directly into the first team or atleast on par with our first 11. I expect at least 5 new players.

The young lads have to win the battle to break into the first team.
Being a skillful footballer is one thing but you also need strength, aggression and the stamina to show them thrir skills in a far tougher environment than what they're used to.
Maybe Klopp made too many changes for the cup games this season but it showed the younger lads chosen gor them matches a hard taste of what is required to make it
And if 1 or 2 of them make it through then the harder work starts trying to maintain it. The work ethic and attitude is as important as the skill set.
