Ed002 - Seeing a lot of people saying we need a rebuild. I'm not convinced we do. It's the tactics we need to change and use the players in their best position. Do you expect us to have a busy summer or use our academy lads more? I prefer the latter.

{Ed002's Note - The priority for Liverpool is the need to sort out the GK situation, add a CB to replace Matip, sort out a contract for Alexander Arnold and look to replace Salah who is still likely to leave. After that it will be driven by replacements for any players being sold, except those on loan who will not need to be replaced. Youngsters like Mateusz Musialowski would be replaced from within I would think.}

Varela the latest name to be touted, again. With Endo on fire, and Baj appearing to be a top class prospect, if Varela is a target, what does it mean, tactically?

Dom looks like he could well be the Salah replacement, with this being his season of coaching more attributes into his game. Any word on the rumours of his unhappiness of late?

Thanks so much again for responding. I see your suggestion of Arne Slot being a good choice starting to create some rumours. Hope it's true. Full credit goes to you if we do ha!

There is clearly big work needed. Not a total rebuild but I reckon we need 5 players.

I think we need very little. Let's first see how the players we have adapt to the new manager.

Like always some will rise, some will stay the same and some may fall. We had good players.

I'd prefer to add only one or two this season.

If we get Amorim, I certainly don't want to see half of Sporting at Liverpool. Our players are great with the right direction.

We can’t compete if we make only one addition. You must think some of the players are better than they are Davey.

Is the goalkeeper situation replacing keheller with Anthony Patterson?

{Ed002's Note - It is not entirely as simle as that. Decisions over Pitaluga and Jaros come in to play.}

Replace Kelleher if he leaves, CB, replace Salah (Szoboslai? ) poss DM and replace any other outgoings. Wouldn't upset me to see Diaz and Nunez moved on.

We not going to swap half a team in one window. One it’s disruptive and two we have never spent that kind of money.

It’s a bit like a recipe isn’t it? An excellent chef can create a great meal with limited ingredients. At the moment we have lots of very good ingredients (players) but we don’t have the chef lined up. I know it’s fun for fans to speculate on which players will come and go but at the moment it’s probably even more difficult to predict in nearly all cases as we don’t know who the chef is going to be.

I say ‘nearly all’ because it seems done and dusted that Thiago, Matip and Adrian won’t be offered new contracts.

I genuinely don't think we need that much, I think the problem is our tactics not players. Let's say Amorim does come in and we play 343.
GK -Ali first choice obvs. Probs need GK with CK and Adrian leaving.
CB - VVD, Gomez, Konate, Quansah. Give Sepp VDB a chance. Amorim central CB steps forward into midfield. Endo and Bajectic both play CB and CDM so perfect for them. Maybe a LCB needed. Matip to leave.
LWB - Have Robertson and Tsimikas.
RWB - Have Bradley and Ramsay. Night need Ramsay upgrade if injuries continue being an issue. Trent can cover.
CM progressive - Macca with Grav as cover.
CM Anchor - Trent for me, with Endo and Bajectic providing cover. Thiago to leave. Clarke coming through, maybe McConnell.
CF/ CAM - Amorim plays 2 of these inside behind the striker. Perfect position for Gakpo and Szob. Elliot and Carvalho could also play here as could Jota. Jones provides rotation options for all midfield positions I expect Salah and Diaz to both leave.
ST - Nunez, Jota. Danns coming through.

So with all the above in mind, we definitely need a GK, ideally a left sided CB depending on if SVDB is given a chance, maybe a RWB and that's literally it. I don't think this massively change that people are talking about it really needed. Give the current lot a chance in Amorims (fingers crossed) system as I genuinely think our tactics are the issue.

I think we could see kelleher (game time) adrian, Stimykas, gravenberch, matip, thiago, salah and possibly diaz, so we could bring in upto 4 players, lcb, dm, no.10 type and a striker, maybe a keeper too if the new manager deems what back ups we have not good enough/ ready.

Salah is leaving so that’s the first replacement needed and my goodness whoever comes in needs to be top class. The 4 remaining aren’t quite good enough, especially end product. I think we need 2 forwards, a gk, one cb, lb is also a worry for me. Midfield depends on Baj getting back to his best. I can’t see it being less than 5 additions.

Funds with mainly come from sales we still get min £100m for Salah. I would cash in on Diaz as well. Then big earners Matip, Adrian, and the blood sucker will all leave.

Jota is lethal, although looks to be prone to a few longer term injuries here ans there.

First season will be replacing sales and establishing the new systems and culture and player suitability with new systems. I expect a drop off, top 4 would be my target.
Subsequent seasons will be squad upgrades but unlikely to be in huge numbers.

TAA as a midfield anchor, Westwood? Seriously? We’d get battered week in week out. He doesn’t have the skill set or defensive nous to play there. It’d be like offering teams a free run at our defence. On the right of a midfield three fine, or if we’re playing 343 he’s wide right midfield, but in the middle as the anchor is just opening us up too much. We need a specialist there and TAA just isn’t that player.

Last 2 summers were the same. We needed a midfield overhaul, when we finally did it we got back within a few points of City as usual.

We now need a goal scorer, a centre back to replace Konate, a replacement for Salah if he departs, and a midfield general.

Depends on your definition of rebuild. We couldn’t even get to the semis of the Europa league. If we want to try win the CL we definitely need at least 5.

Westwood you have Salah Diaz Thiago Matip to leave all to be replaced by one CB. That’s making us weaker.

Agree to disagree VVD. I think he could and see no reason as to why he wouldn't be able to. He's not a destroyer type of DM but you don't need to be. Alonso wasn't and he's probably the best we've ever had. Sometimes just being a body in the right position is enough.
One Kiss - Thiago and Matip don't play anyway so we are not weaker by their leaving. Salah is playing rubbish and has been for some time to the point where he got dropped today. Diaz is a weird one but I'd Amorim does come in I think he'll be sold. RA doesn't tend to use wide his style of wide forward and we already have enough players in the CAM positions to start and cover.
I stand by my points.

Alonso had mascherano beside him though.

Matip and Thiago would still need replacing. Konate misses too many games and he doesn’t seem to fancy Gomez and CB. Replace Thiago with a top class midfielder who can keep fit and the midfield is looking good. Salah has not been playing rubbish for some time he’s scored 24 and set up 9 this season I’d hate to hear how you think the other forwards have performed if that’s rubbish. Need to bring in players to strengthen. It’s how you win.
