Hi Eds?
Great work you're doing here.

Do you think the arrival of Naby Keita would mean a CM departure (s) other than Lucas?
Because, honestly we look saturated in the area.

Special thanks to Macca, you're my (and the majority of reds here) hero.
I don't understand how a true fan here would downvote your post.

Thanks to both Eds and Macca
Have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - my fear is that we seem to be preparing for life without Coutinho. Brought in Salah to replace him on the left wing, freeing up Couts to play in central midfield and now bringing in Keita so we don't need him there either.....}

Agree0 Disagree0

But even if we do bring in Keita that'll leave Can/ Hendo, Keita/ Wijnaldum and Coutinho/ Lallana for 3 midfield spots.
Surely Coutinho wouldn't leave? Right? Right?
You've put the fear in everyone's minds now Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - Grujic, TAA can play there, Ejaria etc. Someone has to go or we will end up with the same issues that Chelsea have and lose the good youth players who fail to see any route into the team.}

That's the big fear although there seems room for Couts, Keita and salah to start, it's the likes of Lallana, Can, Wini who are going to likely see less game time.
My feeling is that Can is the one most likely to go, it wouldn't be the end of the world but I would rather he stay, he's still young and has improvement in him and he's versatile so can cover a few positions, with him only having a year left on his contract it's also likely the fee we get for him will be a little smaller than it should be.

They'd an interesting point regarding Couthino Ed001. It would be a real shame as adding Keita and keeping Couts would give us real quality in depth, something we've not had in a long time.

There will be a lot of games to play ( providing we get past the first stage of the CL ) along with the domestic cup matches, competition for places will be crucial.

Then you take injuries into consideration, I really how we can keep hold of Couts this season and show we really mean business - if we manage to land the three targets Macca mentioned that is.

15 Jul 2017 07:21:40
You might be right Ed001. With the amount of money we are looking to spend this summer on the calibre of players, it'll be too happy a summer for us Liverpool fans. So probably Coutinho will leave to bring us back to Earth.

That's ruined my morning and its only 7:25 - But I do agree, to be honest though I was happy, I was surprised Salah was signed and it got me thinking about it then. I didn't believe the Kieta deal would happen until Macca posted what he did yesterday, so now I think it's a matter of time until he'd gone, gutted! Hope not, if we keep him and add the players we're talking about we'll be laughing.

15 Jul 2017 07:33:08
Surely Can could be the one to leave ahead of Coutinho given contract situ and fact he could miss out in starting XI if Keita arrives?

15 Jul 2017 08:36:14
another view to it though ed001, maybe us signing (subjective view here) quality players, may make it easier for coutinho to want to stay as he feels we can challenge this year?

who knows.

15 Jul 2017 10:44:46
Disagree! Kieta will play alongside Coutinho! I saw the friendly yesterday and shows exactly how much we rely up on Coutinho. It was all his show in the first half! Our CM's are dead flat with no brains to pick players up ahead!
Without Coutinho we are going NOWHERE!

15 Jul 2017 10:36:38
That's my morning ruined Ed. Hoping that signing Keita is not a reaction to Coutinho's imminent departure. A midfield with Hendo, Coutinho and Keita is easily one of the best in Europe imo and can get us challenging for the league. As good as Keita is, Coutinho imo is the only one who can open up defences at will against the bus-parkers and score screamers when nothing else is working.

I reckon it's can leaving with Lucas as well gone surely there is room.
