I know we all love a shiny new player and during the transfer window everyday we wake to some hope of an incredible signing. But we have been very lucky with previous signings working out fantastically and will go in to the season knowing what nearly every player can or can’t give us throughout the season imagine being a Man U fan with signing after signing letting them down and being unable to cut it bar Bruno Penandes that is.

I still hope for a CM but if not I am sure we will be fine with Curtis stepping up and Hendo and Thiago fit again. Forward wise I think Salah mane jota Firmino is adequate cover with Elliot coming in every know and then. So even if we don’t sign anyone else which I am sure we will we have an amazing squad of players probably the best squad we have ever assembled so will be challenging for the title who knows we could have it wrapped up by Xmas again! 🤞😅.

We need a CDM who can also play the Hendo role as a minimum. A wide or centre forward would be ideal. If we get both of these we will be challenging come the end of the season.

15 Jul 2021 17:07:17
I don't disagree with you there, Arnold.

I'm excited by seeing how Jones continues to develop and Elliot too.

I do hope we do add a player or two, tho, as it derisks the challenge for the championship for us. A couple of injuries and we could be down to playing a midfield which is not capable of challenging.

I don't think we'll ever be able to afford to have 2 whole different first 11s (like maybe City have had in the past, or indeed the England ODI cricket team! ), but having that extra quality on rotation helps us to cover injuries, fatigue or loss of form.

15 Jul 2021 18:03:19
Josh we have hendo, fabinho and thiago who can play cdm.

15 Jul 2021 19:02:53
Thiago cannot play the CDM role, IMO. He did play there a bit last season cos we ran out of bodies and he struggled. I fo agree with u that we don’t need a CDM right now. We need a CM or another no.8 like Bissouma (hey, who can actually play the DM role) to come in and help out.

15 Jul 2021 20:18:56
Agree 100% Olired, Thiago can't play the CDM role for Liverpool he is crap at it in the pl. Further forward only time will tell. He should be going full out to prove himself. I already think its an interesting battle between Thiago, Jones, Firmino, Ox for the more attacking role.

I do agree, that we have a good squad of players and one of the best first 11 once all fit and on form (form being very key as we saw last season), but my concern is being able to play at such a high level again as a unit for a full season again like we saw for those 2 1/ 2 years. I said it at the end of the season we won the title and it transpired last season, certain players just fell off massively performance wise, and it’s a huge risk thinking they can just find that sort of form again. If we just rely on the same squad of players that struggled last season with no tweaks in and out, I think we will have another season of struggles and maybe this time, we won’t be so lucky to get top 4, let alone make a challenge. I’d love to be proven wrong but I think it’s delusional to think we could Challenge with the current squad if our competition strengthens.

I’m not talking about whole sale changes, but in my opinion, we need small changes to the first team, which then improves the squad overall. Konate is seen as a first choice alongside vvd, so Gomez, matip etc are squad players now rather than first choice alongside vvd. A new midfielder should be brought in, that should be able to be a first choice, so hendo or Thiago are now no so heavily relied on. Same with up top, even more so, since I am concerned about the form of firmino and mane, so we definitely need someone to push them for a starting spot, not just a origi/ shaq replacement. We need to improve the first 11 to compete for a title. You have to factor in afcon as well, salah won’t be here to carry us during the toughest period of the season, are we relying on firmino or jota who struggles with injuries to keep us near or at the top. Let’s be real, this is a very important season for klopp, I can see him leaving at the end, if we seriously struggle and miss out on top 4.

{Ed0666's Note - yes mate like I’ve said many many times sign a pact wide forward who is first team ready and a Bissouma or Saul (Eds 001’s current man crush) and we’ll win the title and that’s not me being partisan. I stand by that statement.

15 Jul 2021 21:50:29
Gmil Thiago is not a defensive mid and Henderson and Fabinho will both be out for periods this year. We need someone who can play both roles. As Ed said above, CM and a forward and I believe we win the league whoever City sign.

{Ed025's Note - really????..

15 Jul 2021 22:04:16
Ed666. I’m with you on Bissouma or Saul and a wide forward. Add to that little to no injuries to the squad and we are good to go. Well, at least no long term injuries to our key players and I think we win the league. Yes Man City will be in the mix as they are simply a machine when they get going. But we wiped the floor of them the season we won the league and that’s without making any signings that summer.

{Ed0666's Note - ditto and ditto mate

15 Jul 2021 22:09:24
God be with the days when midfielders could defend and attack and didn't need their hand held by a CDM, box to box, No.8 or AM rubbish.

15 Jul 2021 22:35:25
Defo Ed025 if we get those 2 players it really doesn't matter what the other teams do. They can't sign VVD, Allison, Salah, Fabs, Trent, Robbo they can't get to their level.

{Ed025's Note - but besides VVD who had a bit of a sore leg for a bit you had that side last season mark....and finished 17 points behind city!!!, what makes you think that if they strengthen you will win it mate?..

16 Jul 2021 08:24:41
The seasons we won the CL and Premier league we were very lucky with injuries and we didn’t really suffer any big player, long term ones. Last season we were very unlucky with injuries and we lost Hendo, Vvd, Gomez, Matip, Thiago and Fabinho for a hell of a lot of games.
Next season we already know we will be without Mane and Salah for at least a month and Wiji who was available for 38 league games a season is gone. Signings are important but for me next season our success will massively depend on that bit of luck of not having any big player (s) picking up serious injuries. As some of our squad players Ox, Kieta, Shaq etc will almost definitely continue to have their jiggles and be undependable.

16 Jul 2021 12:39:11
Ed025 Fab wasn't in the center mid for a lot of the time, we were the form team at the beginning and end, I fancy us big time if we sign 2 more quality players and we stay relatively injury free.

16 Jul 2021 17:57:28
Mark, Thiago never played the DM role so not sure why you are calling a player crap at something he simply is not built for. Another pointless jibe at a player you simply despise.

As for him playing further forward, no. We don’t need time to tell anything and there is no battle with him and Ox, Bobbie and whoever. That’s just bitter stuff. Ox and Jones are nowhere near his ability and Bobbie does not even play his position. Again, your bias towards TA is deafening

We already know he can do that in the PL ash the first games he played and the last 10 games he played (both periods he was fully fit with a much better team around him) suggests and outrightly confirms. Nice try, tho.
