I hope we sign a quality midfielder and replace gini. Not signing a quality defender was a big mistake by the club last season. Dejan lovren used to play 9-10 premier league games.

On the other hand gini plays a lot more than 10 games. and relying on Curtis, Milner, ox, naby. will be another mistake as there is serious drop in quality and fitness.

Agree5 Disagree0

Probably depends on who else leaves. Fab, Thiago and hendo are the first choice 3, however I think we absolutely need someone who is of similar quality who will rotate in and out as Hendo is not playing every game and Thiago and fab will need resting time to time. (Bissouma)
Jones has come on leaps and bounds but I feel he is still too young to be this player, he still needs to be managed but he will be brilliant to have in and out of the squad. Milner is a keeper as well.
Kieta needs to go, complete disaster of a signing.
Question mark over the Ox for sure though, if I was Klopp I would be asking the fitness team is he finished or is he going to be getting games next season. I would like to keep him personally because he’s brilliant when fit and he gives his all to the team. But depends on fitness.

So yeah I would bring in one midfielder to challenge for the first team. If both Keita and the ox leave then I would probably bring in another as well.

Who would you pick Jerrin? Bissouma for me.

How will it be a mistake? Curtis should be stepped up now or sold. He’s ready to go to the next level with us amd increase game time. Still has to be managed correctly but what is the sense in us training players to come through tk the first team, to then not give them the opportunity.

Some players thrive under the added pressure and others wilt. But we won’t know until they are put in the team. If we don’t want to rely on the likes of Jones and push him on then we shouldn’t be looking at any other young players with a view to bed in and play in near future.

Yes we are at a level where we have higher standards but these are players training with the squad day in and day out and showing enough talent and ability to get a few games. Let’s increase the number of games and give them a run and then make a calculated decision whether they make the grade. They deserve that at least.

Curtis Jones used to play in left wing much similar to coutinho for u18. he is mostly used in mid 3 for first team though. so it feels like he don't have the freedom to attack or play naturally. I strongly believe gini and Curtis are attacking minded - goal scoring players in their whole career apart from Klopp's team which is quite strange.

Regardless of our injury and defensive issues, this poor season has been contributed mainly due to lack of goals. I think we did a good job by signing diogo jota earlier to cover that, but unfortunately he got injured and mane, firmino's standards dipped as well. but I see similar style for mcity, however we can see significant goal contribution from their midfield with lot of forward runs from midfield, gundagon, Silva, kdb all contributes. Where as opposition teams give similar respect to us with we enjoying great possesion stats even with weak cb pairings but cannot breakdown them. That's heavily due to lack of goals. @KaneUOgre, I would prefer an attacking midfielder with full freedom. similar to (coutinho, kdb, bruno)

I think Hendo, Thiago and Fab will be klopps first choice midfield 3 but between them they missed 41 league games last season. Wiji was the the most reliable of the midfield for always being available. Replacing that is key. Jones played 24 league games this season and that was with Wiji still in the squad. For me it will be a mistake not bringing in another midfielder. As good as the first 3 are the likelihood is they will miss games next season and let’s not assume that at any one time 2 or even the 3 might be injured at the same point. Naby and Ox are hardly reliable and as much as I love Milner he’s not getting any younger and we left ourselves short this season by not replacing Lovren.

30 May 2021 18:56:26
Totally agree with JK23, if we are probably fighting for top 4 position and hoping for a good UCL run, this squad is enough. however if we really need to be champions again, then there is no place for weak spots. This team is not getting any younger, but we still have world class players to have a go at league and ucl again.

30 May 2021 19:40:53
OP on your initial point, would us signing a CB last summer (who would have been 4th choice btw hence, no better than the 3 ahead of him) prevented the other 3 CB’s from getting injured fir the whole season? Also, what top CB do you know if that would come and sit on the bench at LFC? Just curious cos a lot of people repeat this narrative yet nobody has been able to answer this simple question. Cheers, mate.

Jerrin that’s just crazy talk. The squad we have is more than capable of winning the league. The problem wasn’t goals it was destroying the midfield to cover the defence which meant we didn’t win the ball back as quickly and the back 4 could be got at easier.
Our front 3 are the best in the world when the rest of the team is functioning as it should.
As for replacing Gini I don’t honestly think it’s essential. More quality is always good but Jones should be able to cover.
The main problem this season was that all of the injuries to the centre backs where long term. You can cover situations for a few weeks but the whole season without any first choice players at CB would destroy any team.
Same with midfielders or attackers. No matter who you sign if you have 3 first choice players missing for the season from 1 area of the pitch you will struggle.
Let’s not over complicate things.

I would love Tielemans over Bissouma, I just think he’s more cultured, but can also cover Fabs. I would be interested in Calhanoglu on a free also. Those two, with Ox and Jones would gibe great options. Let Keita go.

{Ed0666's Note - tielmans over bissouma? What you talking about Willis?😱

30 May 2021 21:41:02
Haven’t we just signed Konate to come in despite us still having Vvd, Gomez, Matip and Phillips.

30 May 2021 21:53:14
Yep, defo, Ed0666, after all different strokes for different folks 😉

I haven’t seen too many games with either of them, but the ones I have, Tielemans just looks different gravy. Seems to have more time on the ball - like a younger Thiago.
