Assuming we sign Keita, Roberts and VVD. What s everybody's ideal match day squad? I was going to ask first 11 but we will have a big squad and some will have to miss out.
My first 11:

Mingolet

Clyne
Matip
VVD
Robertson

Keita
Henderson
Coutinho

Mane
Firmino
Salah

Subs
Karius
Lovern
Lallana
Can
Sturridge
Gini

It's a tough call, Milner, Origi, Solanke, Gomes, TAA, Ings and a few others not even in the squad. There are changes I could make to the first 11 that could leave the team just as good.
We will have a very strong squad next season if all goes according to plan.

Looks a great team but no cover for fullback? I think Milner will make it to the bench if only for his versatility.

20 Jul 2017 14:26:15
Your allowed 7 subs mate. Milner will be on the bench, and either Solanke or Origi for Sturridge (Presuming he'll be injured most of the season)

21 Jul 2017 11:04:41
I'd have Milner in at RB before Clyne.

17 Jul 2017 20:45:33
So if we get our way next season we will sign Keita leaving our central midfield options as follows:
Lallana
Wijnaldum
Can
Hendo
Couts
Keita
Grujic

(Not forgetting players like Ejaria as well)
So far in pre season, Klopp has been playing his 433 formation again which suggests he's intending on playing a similar style to last year. This means that only 3 of the players listed above will be able to play from the off each week (unless Couts goes to the wing which is unlikely given we have Salah and Mane there) . I'd imagine our first choice midfield 3 will usually be:
Hendo
Couts - Keita

Now where does that leave Wijnaldum and Can who were excellent last season. Surely both of those players and Lallana will be unhappy to sit on the bench?
Also Grujic needs to play to keep his work permit so he'll need his fair share of game time.

How do we keep players happy with so many options? I'm intrigued as to how Klopp is intending on keeping everyone happy. Surely at least one of the midfielders will be off this summer.

With the players were being linked with I can see him looking at a 3-4-3 option although agreed he did seem to prefer 433 but changed to the diamond later on in the season:

Mignolet / karius / ward

Van dijk / gomez
Matip / klavan
Lovren / sakho (if he doesn't leave)

Mane / clyne / Trent
Keita / gini / Milner
Henderson / can / grujic
salah / Robertson / Milner

Coutinho / firmino / gini
lallana / keita / woodburn

Firmino / sturridge / origi

A long shot i know but people were looking at seen to fit that more than 4-3-3 really, mane and salah as wing backs is questionable as you want them high up the pitch but they have the work rate to go back and forth

Just an idea.

18 Jul 2017 11:33:17
I've got a better idea!
Formation 1 - 1 - 8

Origi Studge Solanke Mane
Lallana Coutinho Firminho Salah
Keita
VVD
Migs

Cant lose.

18 Jul 2017 14:29:58
Formation and line up will change throughout the season depending on form, who we play and what competition. No one likes to be on the bench so hopefully it will keep everyone on their toes.
It would be nice to have a strong bench. Teams like Chelsea, city, united have quality players on their bench, why are we worried?

Personally don't see the problem myself.

15 Jul 2017 17:48:41
So if things go according to how macca expects them I assume this would be our general starting 11 and bench. obviously different players for different games but just in general ;

Mignolet.
Clyne. Matip. Vvd. Robertson.
Henderson. Keita.
Salah. Coutinho. Mane.
Firmino.

Bench;
Karius.
Lovren.
Milner.
Can.
Wijnaldum
Lallana.
Sturridge.

With the likes of; ward, TAA, ojo, klavan, grujic, solanke, Woodburn, gomez ings, etc all hoping to push on.
This is also assuming buyers will be found for moreno sakho and that lucas will leave otherwise our squad will be too big and too difficult to give everyone opportunities and keep people happy

Anyway pretty happy with that starting 11 and the options off the bench and chances to play different players and formations against different opponents, it's really exciting I think not to mention the fringe players who have some real potential and with a long season where there will no doubt be injuries hopefully they get some chances off the bench and starting in some cup games and that ☺.

16 Jul 2017 16:41:41
Maybe milmer for clyne for me. Taa to be given cup games.

Coutinho
Origi
Gomez - loan

Agree0 Disagree17

17 Jul 2017 09:40:18
Coutinho and Clyne will not be leaving and origi is unlikely to leave either.

15 Jul 2017 10:34:31
Ed001

Ive been reading a few things this morning mate and wanted your opinion please on -

With the likely arrival of Robertson, who will be our first choice starting full backs in your opinion?

Also who will start in Midfield as I can't see Keita coming at that money to sit on the bench?

Appreciate your thoughts.

{Ed001's Note - with Robertson, it is likely to be Clyne and Robertson.

Midfield looks likely to be Henderson, Keita and Coutinho as first choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2017 14:03:35
Do you think Taa has a genuine chance of displacing Clyne by end of season ed? Hope so.

{Ed001's Note - yes, if he does well enough.}

17 Jul 2017 23:06:02
I just don't see klopp dropping lallana - he's like his long lost child - he loves him.

15 Jul 2017 09:26:55
Wanted to start a little conversation/ get opinions on the players that are likely to miss out on a lot of game time this coming season.

If our rumoured transfers go ahead then I can see quite a few players being left out of the squad who I'd like to see given a chance.

I know they'll be rotation and injuries but I'm sure there won't be huge amounts ofrotation in the matchday squad meaning spare players will be picking up scraps in the early rounds of cup competitions I feel.

Starting 11 (potential)
Karius
TAA Matip VVD Robertson
Henderson Kieta Gini
Mane Firmino Coutinho

7 Subs
Migs Lovren Clyne Can Lallana Salah Sturridge


Not in mathday squad/ spares:
Ward, Klavan, Sahko, Gomez, Moreno, Flanagan, Chivrella, Stewart, Lucas?, Ox?, Milner, Ojo, Ojaria, Grujic, Kent, Markovic, Wilson, Woodburn, Ings, Origi, Solanke


Any players that you'd swap out or sell from the first team? or squad players you think should be given a chance/ sold?

p. s. this site is addictive!

Agree0 Disagree4

15 Jul 2017 17:17:49
I think we will change our 11 a lot this season due to the amount of games we should hopefully be playing. I think everyone will pretty much get a run in. And hopefully everyone will be ready to prove their worth when called upon.

But I think our strongest 11 is (if we sign our targets)

Mignolet
Clyne matip VVD robertson
Keita Henderson coutinho
Salah firmino mane.

14 Jul 2017 16:36:00
Migs
Taa. Matip. Vvd. Robertson

Kieta. Henderson

Couts

Mane. Salah

Firmino

Subs. sturridge wini lovren solanke origi ings lallana Milner clyne can karius.

Agree9 Disagree3

14 Jul 2017 14:20:38
Klopp wouldn't repeat a Brendan. There are no alternative list and this is pretty much clear by now. His targets are pretty clear VVD And Kieta! The club should get him or we are buying NONE!
If you truly believe these two are not happening then this is our final team! ( add Robertson ) .

Agree0 Disagree8

14 Jul 2017 09:53:22
If Ed02 is around

What do you say about the transfers of Moratta and Douglas Costa ( loan ) to non English clubs compared to their parent clubs wouldn't accept anything less than big money from English clubs! Is there a trend against the English clubs ( TV deal ) in Perticular. Are English clubs targeted?
