Question for Ed001- do you rate Tielemans, and would he fit in our midfield 3? Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - no, he doesn't work hard enough defensively, he is half-arsed with his press and tracking back. Happy to go all out for glory but not so keen on the hard yards chasing back.}

Sounds like an attitude he learned from his current manager.

12 Jul 2020 21:22:59
Other than KDB who we would never have a hope in signing, who would actually come in and boost our midfield. I'm talking about a unicorn midfielder who tracks back presses and wins the ball, picks a pass through a needles eye and can crakc a 30 yarder like stevie.

12 Jul 2020 21:37:01
Zielinski would be perfect.

12 Jul 2020 21:51:26
Sounds like gini pre-liverpool ed!

12 Jul 2020 21:56:46
You don't need to be an expert to see that the two weakest links in our starting XI are Wijnaldum and Gomez. Therefore it's no surprise when Ed002 tells us we are interested in a starting centre back and an attacking midfielder.

Tielemans is definitely not the answer mind you.

12 Jul 2020 22:14:22
RM - Bit harsh on Brendan there mate, sure he worked pretty hard to get to where he is. Don’t think attitude was a problem, just not quite good enough.

12 Jul 2020 22:44:27
Harvey how are they week points do you watch us play Gini is a great player his work rate is top notch he is so strong on the ball I really don’t know who you are watching. And Gomez is a class cb I can’t think of a better cb of his age in world football. Maybe ed001 can tell us of a better cb in world football that has just turned 23.

{Ed001's Note - not that I can think of.}

12 Jul 2020 22:47:47
Wjinaldum is a classy player. He's been brilliant this season and last.

12 Jul 2020 22:56:15
Harvey’s Man Bun, after reading your posts the last couple of days you are clearly no expert.

12 Jul 2020 23:34:25
Understand that "weakest links" does not mean i think they are weak players. Gomez and Gini are very good players. The other 9 players in our team are arguably the best the best in the world at what they do though. Teams target Gomez all the time, and Gini is not world class.

Someone above implied you need a "unicorn midfielder" to improve on what we have. That's simply not true is it. Fernandes was just signed by Man Utd from the Portuguese league and he is blatantly a better player than Wijnaldum. I'm sure Liverpool's scouts aren't acting as arrogant and complacent as the fans who seemingly believe that one league title makes our entire 25 man squad the best in the world.

Gomez may be the best u23 centre back in the world but that doesn't mean we shouldn't look to a sign someone to push him to be better. Same goes for Wijnaldum.

13 Jul 2020 00:25:30
I know, gomez is excellent too. I haven't watched us this season once and thought this position or that position is the weak link. The team compliment each other brilliantly. Teams need different types of player, wjinaldum's game goes under the radar sometimes. He works incredibly hard, he keeps calm under pressure. Shields the ball well, runs with the ball well. He can shoot, he can pass and he can tackle, and he's not bad in the air either. I reckon he has the type of mentality that is such a a strong part of our success.
I'll always love him for his goals against Barcelona but its more than n just sentimentality with gini. I'd be gutted if we lost him, I really hope he signs a new contract. I'm sure he will. Wasn't he like, super highly thought of as an u15. I mean he's always been highly thought of but he was like the best player in the world at that age.

13 Jul 2020 01:51:10
Nice walk back. Professionally done.

13 Jul 2020 02:35:48
This post makes no sense at all imo
You claim gini is the weak link so you obviously didn’t watch the Barcelona games then
Also you do know we have ever only one game Gomez has started
It is like you want us to us 11 world class players which doesn’t always make for a world class team.

13 Jul 2020 02:53:37
I'm particularly looking forward to see Harvey Elliott get little more game time personally. but hell have school though.

13 Jul 2020 02:53:45
Sorry he will*.

13 Jul 2020 06:41:13
Wijnaldum was great against Barcelona. At Anfield, he is always great against the top clubs or big Champions league nights. For me though, he is inconsistent. He has a tendency to go missing away from home and he doesn't look as motivated against lesser teams.

Gomez is also a great player. I'm not going to deny he is one of the best u23's in the world. However, the best way for players to improve is to fight for their place. Teams target him because he is not as good as Van Dijk. So the target has to be to sign a player as dominant as Virgil, and then hopefully Gomez steps up to win his starting place back. Why do you think Klopp wants Diego Carlos? To replace Van Dijk?

I don't know why some people are acting so defensive. I'm not saying he's a Gini or Gomez are bad players. They are just the only 2 players in our starting XI for whom there is no argument for them being world class. Of course i want 11 world class players. Is this it now? One league title and we just give up on trying to improve?

All i'm saying is we should sign genuine competition for their places. Because Keita and Lovren are not ever going to threaten them. Klopp can't trust them.

Weakest link does not mean i think they are weak. It means they aren't as good as our other 9 starters. The guy who finishes last in the 100m at the Olympics is the slowest. Does that make him slow? It's a relative term.

13 Jul 2020 09:31:05
HMB, totally get what you are saying. However I don’t think the remaining 9 players are all Truly world class either, barring Van Dijk, Alison, Fabinho and possibly our front three, although that could be debatable. However regardless of people’s’ opinions, they are all very good players who play cohesively as a team, and that’s what makes us one of the best teams in the world, playing as a cohesive team.

13 Jul 2020 11:46:19
Maybe not Poppa but you could make a strong case for them all. I completely take the point that a cohesive team is crucial.

I don't even think its crucial we improve on Gini and Gomez. I'm just pointing out that if you looked at our first team and considered where we can realistically strengthen, they are the 2 players for me.

Player everyone rates apart from ed001 shocker.
