I've seen a few articles saying that Klopp is supposedly unhappy with not being able to spend more in the transfer market.

Yes we know how the owners like to operate and the C.V. etc, but surely we have to capitalise a bit more on the time that Klopp has left with us - on the back on some really good success.

A 1st-team and/ or squad always needs new faces o freshen things up every couple of years. That is beside any areas of weakness or lack of cover that need addressing.

Going back to the bit about Klopp, is that journo's just making up as usual or Klopp getting info out there to try and get some more players?

Also, surely if the owners want to keep their investment at a premium level they need to try to be as successful as possible. I'm not saying go out and get Mbappe, Haaland, Saul etc, but surely we do need 1 or 2 1st-team quality players?

{Ed002's Note - No problem then - sell the players they would be replacing to pay for them.}

Red, you are absolutely correct, we do need at least two top players to challenge, but the Ed has hit the nail on the head as usual.

Unless we sell, not just to generate funds but also to make room in our quotas, then we wil end up paying wages to the likes of Origi, Shaqiri and Minamino when they are not available for selection having been excluded from the 25 man squad.

This scenario almost occurred last summer when the loan for Grujic to Porto was secured with minutes to spare.

It’ll create a bit of a uproar but I agree with ed002. All the front three hitting there 30s is not a great place to be specially with cash being tight. Not suggesting they should be forced out of the club but if one of them did want to try somewhere else and there was some lined up in the early 20s it’d make sense. They’re going to leave one day anyway why not be when they’re options out there.

No need to panic yet, all 3 are fit as fiddles! similar age to the likes of Spurs or Arsenals frontlines. Likes of Salah/ Mane have another good 4 or 5 years left in them.

OP, I don't believe any of these articles so called journalists write about our transfer dealings. Why? A lot of them are made up out of whole cloth. You see Articles say "LFC are not signing a replacement for Gini or a midfielder" whereas the same papers are linking us to Saul, Neuhaus, Saul, Bissouma, Tielemans and so on. So which is it cos it cannot be both?

Now you read an article saying Klopp is unhappy that he can't spend money. Based on what reliable info? Any sources directly saying that or is it the tried and reliable " it is understood" or "it is believed"? Oh and now they are blaming FSG for not giving Gini a new contract whereas anyone with basic knowledge of footie business knows that owners don't deal with contract extensions, who signs and who gets sold.

Moral of the story? LFC do not do their business in the media anymore nor do they leak info to the media anymore. And clearly, some in the media have a hard time believing that or getting over that so they now resort to fabrications and this is the latest one: Trying to stir up chaos in the fan base by pitting Klopp against the owners.

I'm not worried at all and don't read such things. We will do our business and get the players we need in. As for the front 3, they are not going anywhere so the situation is irrelevant, IMO. And if Klopp is really peeved then, he do exactly what Ed02 has said.

Personally I think midfield is the priority over a forward. Elliott, Jota, Minamino, Ox and if we can’t sell him, Origi, is enough and Mane and Salah have both had plenty of rest this summer thankfully. We do however need a reliable quality tactically disciplined centre midfielder who can win the ball back quickly but also can pass and distribute quickly.

{Ed0666's Note - who would you advocate us purchasing for that role mate? Sorry if I’ve asked you this question before.

28 Jul 2021 15:47:25
IF we can keep our squad fit, Elliot can replace Shaq, Jones can step up, Thiago hits the ground as he finished last season, the front 4 play well, then we've got a great chance of challenging on the two major fronts. Bench this season: Kelleher/ Adrian, Tsimikas, Firmino/ Jota, Gomez, Matip, Neco, Elliot, Jones, Milner, Minamino, Ox, Origi/ replacment. I don't think that's a bad bench at all.

28 Jul 2021 19:07:47
Any of Saul, Bisoumma or Neuhaus Ed. They’d do. But avoid the likes of Sanches or Tielemans.

28 Jul 2021 19:38:35
VVVV, “We need a quality, reliable, tactically disciplined central midfielder”. Wow, all those attribute all in one? You’ll be lucky to find one with even half of those attributes, lol.

Seriously tho, we have Hendo and Fab who fit that bill already. I do believe we need a better midfielder than Sanches even tho I think he is a good player overall. Saul? One can dream. Bissouma? I seriously hope so. Tielemans? Very good player but won’t work in our system cos he does not press at all and isn’t asked to do so at Leicester.

28 Jul 2021 19:43:27
Jones isn't good enough.

28 Jul 2021 20:20:41
How do u know that Kloop. We have a lot riding on Jones this season.

{Ed002's Note - He is a troll who has now gone.}

28 Jul 2021 20:31:55
Oli, those were the attributes that Klopp saw in Wijnaldum, so it’s important that we bring in someone similar or better and Saul, Bissouma and Neuhaus have those qualities. I suspect Saul will end up at United, Bisoumma at Arsenal and Neuhaus will wait for Bayern leaving us with scraps at the bottom of the barrel like Sanches.

I’m not buying into the Sanches hype, he is just all over the place as a midfielder and so injury prone it’s unreal, he had an ok tournament but hasn’t really done much in the years preceding that (Lille won the title in spite of him, not because! ) and I absolutely agree with you that Tielemans is lazy as **** The odd long range goal isn’t enough to sway me as he doesn’t do enough, it’s a good job he plays alongside Ndidi or he’d get found out.

Thank you Ed002. Jones has come through and stepped up, hopefully he will continue to progress and I can see him being an excellent option for midfield. Still loads of time on his side.
