Eds I definitely think we need different options up front, maybe a target man for certain games, is the young lad taiwo awonyi anywhere near up to it as this year he has progressed more with the club he on loan at, from what I can see he looks tall strong quick an potentially a nuisance, what's your opinion on him.

hailstones

{Ed002's Note - Awoniyi will go on loan again - getting a Work Permit has proven not possible. I suspect the club will look to Anderlecht as the preferred option but other sides such as Brugge and Standard Liege might be interested in a loan.}


1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:25:59
That does make sense Ed. He did quite well in Belgium, would playing for a more higher profile team help get a permit Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but one I suspect will be a struggle to keep in the longer term. He will go on the pre-season tour of the United States and then on loan.}


2.) 17 Jun 2018 16:35:20
Ed2 are the work permit committee pissed off with us? The only reason I ask is because of how we got Grujic his by lying and I can only imagine we aren't in their good books because of that?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool abused the system so they were certainly at the time. The whole Grujic situation has been a terrible mess but it will soon be over.}


3.) 17 Jun 2018 17:17:35
How in demand is ..............

{Ed002's Note - This is the page - we are not going to answer questions about random players.}


4.) 17 Jun 2018 17:22:42
Interesting Ed2, thank you!


5.) 17 Jun 2018 17:41:56
Cheers Ed.


6.) 17 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Why can’t Solanke be the target man?


7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:26:49
He is better behind a striker apparently slightly deeper that's where he plays for England youth teams.


8.) 17 Jun 2018 19:44:49
Ed002, will it be even more difficult after Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not for people like Awoniyi.}


9.) 17 Jun 2018 21:09:46
Sure, but I’m mean will the permit panel be a bit overwhelmed when the EU players have to apply?

I hope Nathaniel Phillips is ready for the premiership cos we going to actually need him now we are relying on vvd matip klavan Gomez too stay fit and perform very well apart from vvd all of them have knocks, major setback with lovren and this is why we needed another centre back more than we thought, hope this doesn't bite us in the ass.

hailstones

1.) 11 Aug 2018 22:47:10
Sooooo, all my banging on seems reasonable now.

Stupid to not streghen there and as I said how frustrating will it be if it costs us this season.

There wasn't a single cb out there who was better or equal to Lovren who could of allowed us to ship out one of klavan or Matip?

This season is going to be the finest of margins. The absolute finest. I believe it's a final day season. A point.

This is how's it all worked out. Any crack in your armour will show.

Klopp, that 3, keita, hendo, vvd, Alison are magnificent as is everyone at the club, but 1 better decision was needed. Hopefully we get to January in good shape and if still needed can streghen there then!

{Ed002's Note - Let’s hope the club does really badly this season so you are happy.}


2.) 11 Aug 2018 23:07:45
Kloppsboss

Although i backed your point up at the time im kinda disappointed in your post now.

I told you so's serve no purpose at all.

The season hasn't even started yet dude and your spouting negativity.

Lovern being out gives someone else a chance to shine in what's going to be a very dangerous unit this year.

At least give klopp a chance before a ball has even been kicked.

Lets hope lovern isn't out too long and phillips if picked tomorrow can step up to the plate.

If lovern is out for a while and gomez isn't fit we may even see fabinho play a few there till things settle back into flow.

Onwards and upwards.

{Ed0333's Note - also I’m not sure how kloppsboss knows that this season is gonna go down to the final day and be decided by a point. If someone could borrow kloppboss’ crystal ball I need to know if my wife will ever lose her voice or leave the toilet seat up for me in the future.


3.) 11 Aug 2018 23:11:50
No it was just a glaring void that needed to be fixed, especially with a league that's probably going to be at it's most competitive. If it was top 4 we wanted then I believe we already have it. Absolutely.

But the title is such fine margins. Going against a city side who, well name me there cracks, were are they very weak. They have 160/ 70 million in cbs, 120 million in full backs, 50 mil in gks and 370 million in attacking players with 30 million in fernandinho. That's not even half there squad. They have numerous players in every position.

NO. Liverpool don't need to go and spend that sort of money. I'm just highlighting the sheer strength of them. I really like Phillips but right now shouldn't be the time to blood him, next season it could be worth it like it was with Trent but we scrapped 4th last year. We cannot have those games which he will have where he makes mistakes, which is fine as he's a young player, and still go on and win the title. For me anyway.

It's unfsre on him aswel. Put it this way. We ideally need 12 points out of these first 5 games. Probably 13. We simply cannot lose any ground this early.

I'm only slightly frustrated ed because everything is there, absolutely everything apart from a partner for vvd.


4.) 11 Aug 2018 23:23:50
The point remains that you can't have 100 CBs to cover for eventuation. It also remains the Kloppsboss will just moan about anything until he thinks inks h a is proved correct, even whn he hasn't. We have 5 senior CBs and some alent coming through the academy. Let the squad sort it.


5.) 11 Aug 2018 23:24:04
The fact we have a keeper behind the CB’s who will instill confidence and a midfield in front that will help shield them should make the situation you are worried about a minor problem. We have the ability to squeeze teams in now. Before when they broke our press we had no keeper to sweep the long ball up, now we do. He will be the difference. We haven’t even taken to the pitch yet for our first match, let’s see how the lads do and see how the line up plays with our new signings.


6.) 11 Aug 2018 23:25:13
No need to overreact and throw your toys out of the pram. We have 5 senior centre backs plus Phillips. That's 6 options for 2 positions. Yes we're unlucky with injuries but all clubs go through this at some point.

Evidently Klopp and his team did not deem signing a defender a priority, choosing to strengthen the weaker parts of our squad instead.

Look at United's pursuit of a centreback. Alderweireld, Maguire, Mina, Boateng. None of them were signed. With the World Cup and a shortened transfer window, there wasn't a lot of time to make loads of signings, plus having to gel them into the squad and get everyone back up to speed and full fitness.

It seems like there are not a lot of top quality centrebacks out there for sale. The ones that are available are way overpriced and just not worth the money.

If we had signed Vida instead of Fabinho or Shaquiri or Alisson, fans like you will still find some fault and pick out something to moan about. How about we just look forward to the season ahead and enjoy the game against West Ham? It's a season with lots to be excited about.

YNWA.


7.) 11 Aug 2018 23:46:59
We have vvd Lovren Matip Klavan - city have Kompany Otamendi stones and Laporte. it terms of numbers we have the same - and Gomez too.
If we got Vida say, he would surely be in the same boat as Lovren?

{Ed0333's Note - Vida is a soldier and in my opinion a better player than Lovren. A seriously underrated footballer who I’d love to see play for Liverpool.


8.) 12 Aug 2018 00:10:00
Why do people keep saying buy players to cover for injuries.

Thag is not and never what has been said. It's rediculous now.

Buy a new cb to sell one of the hospital patients we have.

Buy de ligt sell Matip. absolutely simple isn't it. READ dudes and dudets.

We then have vvd, Lovren, de ligt, klavan.

And stop calling Gomez a cb. Or counting him as such. Has he even played 10 games there? Has he been a single season fully fit? As far as I'm aware he was a rb last year 😂

So we have vvd, Lovren, klavan and Matip and that's good enough for a title challenge is it.


9.) 12 Aug 2018 00:12:20
Like I said the other day some people just love to complain. I suspect if we had signed another central defender Kloppsboss would be complaining that we weren’t giving Gomez and Phillips a chance.

To try to make an argument that we will need X amount of points because City or United will get X amount of points is pointless, how many seasons in recent years have gone as predicted? Did anyone expect City to get 100 points? Did anyone expect Conte to turn 10th place Chelsea into champions? Did anyone expect Leicester to win the league?

Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and just enjoy the ride.


10.) 12 Aug 2018 00:20:15
Before you all start, remember one thing, mystic meg, I mean kloppsboss is always right ;) .

You should go be the manager mate you quite clearly know more than everybody else including Klopp. Hats off to you, all the knowledge you possess and you are coming on this site! I honestly couldn't be more grateful to have somebody with the knowledge you have sharing your expert opinions. Keep them coming Mr Meg.


11.) 12 Aug 2018 00:36:05
Lighten up dude. The season starts for us tomorrow and we have the best squad that you or I (judging by the age of your tone) can remember. Worrying about back up defenders when we have one of Europes most potent attacks is like an Ice cream salesman worrying about whether his hundred and thousands are missing the hundreds. Enjoy what's to come Harry (you certainly talk like him if it isn't), don't focus on the negative so much.


12.) 12 Aug 2018 02:18:08
If it is Nat Phillips, he’s playing alongside one of the best central defenders in the premier league. Remember when a certain Rob Jones made his debut against Man United and he had Ryan Giggs in his pocket? Nat could have as good a game. Let’s get behind the lad.


13.) 12 Aug 2018 06:14:11
Trent made his PL debut against United and pocketed Martial. Although Nat Phillips on Arnautovic makes me slightly nervous, if he plays i will back him and im sure he'll prove all doubters wrong. i fully believe our CB depth is good enough and its just bad luck that 4 CB's are out (or a doubt) for our opening game. that doesn't happen too often.


14.) 12 Aug 2018 06:55:56
It’s ok saying we don’t need 100 CB’s but what we do need is quality.

Plus the fact Gamez ( who I rate highly ) Klavan and Matip are all extremely injury prone.

It’s an area we should have strengthened in my opinion because for me, Matip and Klavan aren’t good enough. This area of the team, along with the keeper situation has been our achillies heel for years now. If VVD gets injured we have no commanding presence at the back. Lovren has improved but without a VVD type next to him, he loses confidence.

I really hope Phillips can kick.


15.) 12 Aug 2018 07:34:01
I meant kick on.


16.) 12 Aug 2018 08:20:11
You can't just go out and buy everyone. We have spent £180m what more do you want? Last year our midfield was average and needed an upgrade which we have got. We needed a top keeper and cover for the front 3, both sorted.

Nobody wanted to buy Origi, Clyne, Matip, Gini etc so where is the £40m for the centre back coming from? let's raise ticket prices and get a bigger loan so we can have a 7th centre back. Be positive.


17.) 12 Aug 2018 08:38:38
I just think some make it sound easier the it is. But also don't take into account that these are our guys. We ain't just going to discard players at a whim. The squad has been built steadily over the last 2-3 seasons and I just rekon klopp and co have earned some collateral to trust the squad they have. I get the point, bit prefer to be excited to see one of our own step up and take his chance. He'd never get a shot otherwise.


18.) 12 Aug 2018 10:08:07
Why do we need an extra centre back when we aren't going to be defending?


19.) 12 Aug 2018 10:50:43
Ed 033 right about Vida being a soldier and soldiers are what we needed not the walking wounded, the season hasn't even started and we have 4 defenders who are doubtful or definitely not 100 percent, the lovren thing is crazy an really irresponsible on his behalf not letting us know of his condition, I stand by what I say we could of done with an extra attacker and defender, I ain't trying too be a neg head but we got champions league as well.


20.) 12 Aug 2018 11:01:15
I know how good Nat Phillips could be. I love him and have wanted him to have a shot for a while but in the fa cup or something.

I just personally feel that going into a campaign where you want to win the title, you can't be blooding academy players.

West ham are no mugs. They've got good players and a good manager. Imagine we lose the first two games whilst Lovren gets fit and city, Chelsea United all win there's?

That's all I'm saying we need to be perfect this year and this was a headache we didn't need.

I'll support Nat like everyone else and hope the kids does well, but I just think it's an unfare situation to start him in. We should of been more prepared.

Matip missed majority of last year, Gomez was injured and klavan was injured. We know there not the best at staying injury free so why trust them for another season.

As for defenders. Johnny Evans the title winner went for 3.5 million. He's better than klavan and Matip. That would of been a brilliant squad move.

{Ed025's Note - sometimes the club just cant win KB, they bring an young lad in and its a mistake, then they buy someone and fans ask why the young lads dont get a chance..


21.) 12 Aug 2018 11:21:05
Fair enough ed.

Really glad he is getting a shot just think it should of come when we decided, not because we have to sort of thing. For him aswel.

Does no-one remember he hounding out campaign started against Trent after the United game. Say he plays this first 3 and messes up these pages will be littered with get him out, not good enough garbage and if it impacts our title campaign, well look at karius, he might just never recover.

{Ed025's Note - you cant please everybody mate..


22.) 13 Aug 2018 02:26:30
KB, i don't think klopp went into the season intending to blood an academy play. But it is an option should the team be faced with an injury crisis. Gomez did well today.


 

 

10 Aug 2018 10:51:05
I hope fabihnos injury is not too bad heard it's a muscle injury and he might miss the west ham game, hopefully Henderson can slot in there with Gini and keita .

hailstones

1.) 10 Aug 2018 11:10:24
The club has said that his scan came back clear. He was seen leaving melwood because he was feeling unwell. Klopp wouldn't commit to whether he will be fit, just said we will see. Doesn't seem serious though.

He said Henderson is full of power so seems like he is in contention.


2.) 10 Aug 2018 12:48:24
A scan that came back clear, but he's gone home feeling unwell?
God forbid, our new midfielder isn't pregnant is he?


3.) 10 Aug 2018 14:54:34
Gini looks like he’s in fighting spirit for his place in the team. No sweats against West Ham. Hope we get a clean sheet to boost the confidence early!


4.) 10 Aug 2018 17:21:48
Henderson Keita and Wijnaldum is a good solid centre midfield.


5.) 10 Aug 2018 20:35:21
Actually Wijnaldum has been our hottest midfielders in preseason. I have no problem with him starting over Fab or Hendo at least for the time being.


6.) 10 Aug 2018 22:15:23
Gini and keita will start. Hendo won't. Too soon. Maybe lallana, maybe fab. I'd prefer fab as gini is better going forward,

Keita. Fabhino. Gini.


7.) 11 Aug 2018 02:52:42
To be honest I don’t really mind. Gini and Keita are two strong options and capable of playing at 6 or 8 if required. I’m sure any one of Hendo, Fabinho, Milner or Lallana could fit in alongside those two.

Even if they weren’t fit we could still play a 4-2-3-1 and play Shaqiri at 10 ahead of them and we’d be fine.

This is one of the great successes of the window with Keita and Fabinho joining. We have lots of options in midfield.


 

 

29 Jul 2018 08:43:58
Eds I am curious too know what is Ben woodburns preferred position and where u think he would flourish when he first came on the seen I thought he was someone who could run in behind like an attacker in a front 3 . Playing for Wales is obvious he can pick the ball up in midfield positions run at defences also he can shoot from range an seems too have good energy levels, I think he could play as a attacking midfielder in the position we had earmarked for coutihno before he left, the kid is only 18 or 19 but seems too have been around the first team for a while I hope he gets a chance too show what he can do an give us food for thought as another option .

hailstones

{Ed001's Note - far too early for that, he needs to develop into a position.}


1.) 29 Jul 2018 10:34:28
That's what I mean? What position is he going to be developing as an attacker or midfield, I am hoping midfield .


2.) 29 Jul 2018 10:38:39
Woodburns a great little baller. People forget he's a full year younger than Trent for example and has 11 appearances for a huge club, Trent at this stage last year had 12.and we all know what kind of a season he went on to have. Woodburn is also up against some of the best players in the world in his position. He's still 18 and just needs time, maybe a loan this year. I have absolutely no doubts about Woodburn and see him been at Lfc for many a year.


3.) 29 Jul 2018 11:47:30
I think he will develop into a great attacking midfielder in time, someone like a KDB style of player and hopefully for us he will be just as good when he’s that age!


 

 

24 Jul 2018 22:57:22
Surely now matip is out and proving a bit of a liability, we will have too get a defender in as cover or do u think this will be ignored an we battle on, I am gutted we ain't going for fekir or someone who can fill that creative gap that coutihno left . I am living in hope but preying we do something fingers and toes crossed as it could make the difference to our attack to have the variety too chose from .

hailstones

1.) 24 Jul 2018 23:53:59
We can’t just keep on buying players. We have had the best transfer window I can remember. For years I have wanted only to buy a few players that improve the first team and we have done that. Let’s concentrate on getting a few players off the books who aren’t going g to get much game time.


2.) 25 Jul 2018 00:09:54
Re the CBs, hailstones, we’ve got 5 senior CBs for just such an issue. Injury to Matip means Gomez has a chance to partner VVD until Lovren is back.

I still believe we will get Fekir, and no where have I seen anything conclusive that says we won’t.

Even if no one else comes in, this is one of the best windows ever.


3.) 25 Jul 2018 00:27:24
I agree mate I am just gutted cos I like the player and think he would suit us, I don't think we will get him things have moved on too much since then it looks like we would have to go back too Lyon which I can't see, it has been a great window but I still feel we a couple of injuries from being exposed especially in attack an defence the quality back up jus isn't there.


4.) 25 Jul 2018 00:55:49
Exactly zed, completely agree mate.


5.) 25 Jul 2018 01:02:58
We have Ox (injured), Lallana, Keita, Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson and Fabinho can't see where Fekir fits.


6.) 25 Jul 2018 02:00:51
unless matip is done for the season, I don't see the sense in bringing in a reinforcement. VVD, lovren, klavan matip and gomez are our group. 5 senior CBs seems about right to cover for injuries etc. and no matter what we think about the quality in depth, we can't just bring in more players and have say, 7 or 8 senior CBs every time someone gets injured. say if matip is injured long term or has a chronic injury, then I imagine a deal that may make sense would be a loan deal for someone where we manage to wheel a decent wage share out of the home club. otherwise, just roll with who we have.

secondly, we've replaced coutinho with Keita imo. I don't see where we have issues with creativity. but if we get someone myu preference is pulisic!


7.) 25 Jul 2018 08:28:51
If Keita doesn't play the midfield is similar to last year. No where near enough goals or good enough supply to the front men.

Any mix of the midfield players without Keita will not be good enough over a run of games. The squad though is better so maybe Mane or Firmino will play the number 10.


8.) 25 Jul 2018 09:48:39
What I would say mark, is that with Fabinho in the team at least Hendo will have the opportunity to play further forward from time to time. He's a lot more creative with final passes than he gets credit for and is not afraid to have a shot or two if he's in that role. Klopp didn't trust Can enough to allow Hendo to be the furthest forward of the two and I think that will change now. However, I am slightly leaning towards the idea of having signed a cheaper keeper, purely to take the onus off of Karius, and to have signed a Fekir type for the reasons you state.

Hopefully this Alisson thing puts the keeper issue to bed completely and negates the need for an extra creative body in there, for now. We scored 84 league goals last year. All but City would've given their right arms to have scored that amount. Maybe if we can halve goals conceded we'll bridge the gap. I'd prefer to score more than concede less, but whatever works really.


9.) 25 Jul 2018 10:41:52
Markp scoring goals wasn’t always a problem, albeit sometimes against major PTB teams, but we'd still find at least 1 most times.
It was conceding and throwing the game away that was the major problem
New keeper and a proper DM will hopefully massively improve on that. So we may get a few boring 1-0s instead of 1-1s lol.


10.) 25 Jul 2018 11:40:13
Not sure that is correct, we were about 10 goals short IMO, if we score 84 goals this year I would think it won't be enough. Hendo doesn't/ can't score goals. Without Keita the midfield is basically the same.

A midfield of Milner/ Gini, Hendo, Fabinho won't be good enough over an extended period to challenge City.

No excuses though, there are enough forward players now to change it up when required.


11.) 25 Jul 2018 12:15:23
mark what you on about? without keita the midfield is the same? but we do have keita. so if him and fab play we have changed 2 out of 3. that is not the same.

you could argue without Allison our keepers are basically the same. do you wantt us to sign an upgrade and a reserve for every position?


12.) 25 Jul 2018 12:37:41
Hendo was never prolific, but he certainly scored and assisted more when he played a more advanced role. He just hasn't been playing there for the last 2 or 3 years.

Most years 84 goals would be enough to win a title, Man City broke records last year - that won't be repeated. We've improved the squad and more importantly, the first team. City will have to complete some extra ordinary work to improve theirs. I think the mercurial football conceptualist that is Guardiola will have to re-reinvent the game this season. If he does, with what is still the most expensive squad by a long way, then kudos to him.

From what we needed before the window, to what we have now is a leap beyond dreams. To ask for much more is just being greedy, I think. But hell, we are football fans.


 

 

20 Jul 2018 22:01:32
People won't understand this but I honestly believe markovich should be an option of the bench, there is something there an that lad has been pushed from pillar too post like a cheap hooker, it's not cos he scored yesterday either I have always thought he has an eye for a pass an a lil bit of everything obviously not world class, but he is young an can only get better .

hailstones

{Ed025's Note - your totally right hailstones...we dont understand one bit.. :)


1.) 20 Jul 2018 22:08:37
Hailstones I know we're your coming from mate but I think he has 1 good gane the goes missing for a couple. he has pace to burn but dosnt use it effectly enough for me.


2.) 20 Jul 2018 22:27:40
Hailstones if markovic gets near the bench il move out of your house but the missus comes with be.


3.) 20 Jul 2018 22:43:21
Hahahaha I knew that was coming maybe it seems a bit crazy but I am thinking who do we play if injuries too the front 3 me this why I want fekir, but failing him sturridge, shaqiri, Camacho, solanke . Origi is shot too peices seems too b getting worse with time, I like woodburn but it's like we don't know his best position, good job he 18 time is on his side . I am scratching my ass a bit thinking about the depth up front if we lose key players hence the markovich shout off the bench or in cup games.


4.) 20 Jul 2018 22:53:28
I sympathise with him because joining Liverpool was the worst possible move could've ever made but he's nowhere near our level. We just had this incredible transfer window and you want Markovich to be part of the squad? I'm sorry but no, that was us a few years ago, mediocre players, now we have world/ top class players, he's way way behind what we have.

I know you've said 'it's not cos he scored yesterday either' so this isn't aimed at you but last night a couple of people was singing his praises because he scored, against Blackburn I mean come on. The lad in my opinion is a championship player and deserves to move elsewhere so his career isn't halted even further because if he stays here he'll just be collecting dust.


5.) 20 Jul 2018 23:34:14
He was pretty good for Hull, okay they were relegated but he helped them make a fist of it. If Klopp had any faith in him he wouldn't go and buy shaqiri. I think he could play in the prem but I don't see it being us.


6.) 21 Jul 2018 00:11:05
Maybe I am wrong but who can step in for front 3 if they get injured outside of shaqiri and sturridge, who we know will be injured, we know solanke is raw, we know origi is out of sorts, Brewster is injured but also raw, Camacho is raw but I like him, ings will be sold I feel we still an injury away too the front 3 will hurt us, if sturridge can stay fit that's perfect also if shaqiri adjusts well that should be enough up top but odds are against that with sturridges injury record.


7.) 21 Jul 2018 00:22:57
Unfortunately he doesn't seem. to have the fight or the determination. He looked decent v Blackburn but like he did when played a few years ago, he had several chances to be positive and try beat his man and get into dangerous areas. But he's happy to just play safe and easy all the time. A pity as lads obviously got ability.

No chance, he's failed to impress wherever he's gone. I'd rather give Camacho and Jones these opportunities.

I think Markovic has had plenty of chances to impress. We should do the decent thing and release him or sell him for a few million. It was a huge mistake on the part of Rodgers buying this guy, but yet again Ed02 was right. He said Chelsea were interested at the time we were but didn't think he was ready for the Premier league. Spot on.

Wasn't he young player of the yr in his home country, then the same again Portugal.

I liked his swagger when he first turned up, but obviously two lfc managers don't like what they see and he didn't get many games on loan.

Shame but let him go.

2 a defender and an attacker, when we finished last season we needed a def mid, a no 10, a keeper, a midfielder, cover for front 3 and a central defender all ours made of glass.

U are kidding me Gomez injured that's crap I hope not won't lovren be ready or last resort klavan, it's mad we haven't learned from last season this current squad is vulnerable too injuries I am talking bout the original players from last season matip, Gomez, lovren, matip, lallana, clyne, sturridge, even Henderson at times with his heel problem, there's 7 players who are in danger of any time picking up injuries that will hurt us, I still think we are short of another defender and flexible attacker for front 3 don't get me wrong been a great market for us but can't help feeling we will regret not going all out .

Ed who was the signing klopp wanted in there a defender? An attacker? More than likely fekir or Vida as u say the soldier as I agree.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp wanted to take Dani Ceballos on a loan to buy but the player did not want to leave Spain. Liverpool never spoke with Lyon again after the initial screwing around over price.}

Ed 033 right about Vida being a soldier and soldiers are what we needed not the walking wounded, the season hasn't even started and we have 4 defenders who are doubtful or definitely not 100 percent, the lovren thing is crazy an really irresponsible on his behalf not letting us know of his condition, I stand by what I say we could of done with an extra attacker and defender, I ain't trying too be a neg head but we got champions league as well.

Thing is sturridge made of glass and lallana the same not too mention matip hope our squad stands up through the course of the season.

{Ed025's Note - thats the only reservation i have about liverpools title challenge hailstones...the strength in depth of the squad, injuries to the likes of VVD or salah especially if they are long term could be a disaster mate..
