I know there’s a good few weeks left in the transfer market but am starting to get really Impatient with not signing a gini replacement. We’ve known that he was leaving months and months ago. We have a bit of cash now from sales so let’s go get a player!
Apologies I know I sound like a 5 year old🤦🏻‍♂️.

Still a month left, I am sure we will sign some players for the 1st team. :)

30 Jul 2021 19:07:44
We signed Thiago last summer to be fair. You could argue he was a Lallana replacement but then who did Jones replace? Then we have Elliott coming in this season (probably to replace Shaqiri) and he's playing centre mid this season from the looks of pre-season and the official website interviews.

For me, it's not sensible to keep adding players to the midfield roster before we sell/ loan some out. Hendo, Thiago, Fabinho, Milner, Jones, Elliott and Ox are going nowhere. So we have about 7-11 midfielders, depending on the immediate futures of Keita, Shaqiri, Cain and Clarkson. I think Keita will stay due to lack of suitors personally.

We will play a maximum of 3 at a time, and probably only 2 in a lot of more games than previous seasons, so we can get Jota into the team in a 4-2-3-1.

For me, there is no need to be nervous mate. We are over stocked in midfield as it stands and i'm sure if we can whittle it down to about 7, we will add another player. Unless you are stressed about the quality or variability of our existing options, which is entirely subjective and you are absolutely entitled to your opinion on. From a pure numbers perspective, we're well covered and i am a big believer in trusting in the youth. I understand others will be less trusting though.

30 Jul 2021 19:09:01
Yeah, just like a 5 yr old, lol.

30 Jul 2021 19:09:34
Unless home grown we need to shift at least 1 more to create space, no panic, I'm sure the club will get what they feel they need.

I think longthing, you and I should be the Head honchos at Liverpool.

Sure we know nothing about finances and probably bankrupt the place in five minutes but we ll give the fans a transfer window to remember.

We ll split tasks evenly.

You ask fsg for more money.

I ll ring mbappe on the hour every hour until he simply can't take it anymore and joins just to stop the madness.

Afterwards I ll ask for more money.

You ring Haaland.

After a large argument about whether bissouma/ Saul would be better, we ll just agree to get both after of course a quick call to fsg.

Alisson
Van Dijk
Arnold Saul Bissouma Robertson
Firmino
Salah Mbappe Haaland Mane


I mean. It just seems so obvious when you see that lineup.

{Ed025's Note - so no fab yet you play firmino davey?, if i was longthing i would turn you down flat mate..

30 Jul 2021 19:48:25
I suppose a good way to look at the squad is to see which 2 Elevens you could possibly play which no double ups of players. Best eleven

Allison
Trent, konate, Virgil, Robbo
Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago
Salah, Bobby, Mane

Second Eleven
Adrian
Williams, Matip, Gomez, tsmikas
Jones, Milner, keita
Jota, ox, Elliott

That still leaves out the likes of Phillips, Taki and any youth players and assumes Shaqiri and Origi are gone.

Not a bad second eleven at all, in an ideal world if a few players were to leave such a Taki, origi and Shaq then a versatile forward could be added, and double ideal world Keita could go an get his career back on track with another club and we could sign another midfielder, leaving Elliott to fill in both a forward and midfield role.

30 Jul 2021 20:26:36
A midfield trio of Jones, Milner, Keita and Adrian in goal is like giving the opposition a 4 goal head start. Beyond our starting three the midfield options are not good.

30 Jul 2021 20:26:51
The second 21 would be in the bottom 6.

30 Jul 2021 21:10:39
it's not common to see 11 players changed, but that eleven would get you though rounds of the cup against championship sides and below, and possibly weaker premier league competition, and can be played in dead rubbers of course. Otherwise you are very unlikely to see that Eleven players all play together.

In that second eleven you have 2 40 million players and a 60 million player, 2 league and European cup winning centre backs, a champions league level left back, Milner the most experienced player at the club and 2 brilliant young prospects who the more players you buy the less chance they get. Young players only thrive when you give e them a chance

Otherwise you will just see a few swapped in here and there, as I said another midfielder would be nice and a versatile forward but there are already 3 High earners who don't even make it into either 11, before any other players can be brought they need to be gone, otherwise money is being chucked away and of course squads slots taken up.

30 Jul 2021 21:53:20
MK Jones? You're trolling now.

30 Jul 2021 22:26:49
It appears Curtis Jones is the new Rhys Williams, constant belittling of a young playing who can only improve.
I'm curious to know what some of you consider yourselves? You are not supporters as you only support the players you deem worthy or your support, maybe trolls is more appropriate.

30 Jul 2021 23:20:34
Love it davey. It’s deal I mean how hard can it be! 😂😂.

31 Jul 2021 00:14:14
Well said thunderbird.

Thunderbird 2 are you Jones’ mum or dad? I don’t think the player is good enough. I don’t think he scores enough and I don’t think he’s forward thinking enough. If the Euro’s has proved one thing, it shows he’s behind other players of a similar age. Do I think he’s terrible? No, he’s neat and tidy in possession and has an elegance on the ball. If that makes me a troll then you need to get a life.

{Ed001's Note - how has the Euros proved that? Are you for real?}

30 Jul 2021 21:24:43
Ed25, I want to play the new shiny guys and I'm a sucker for Firminos dazzling smile. Quit hating on my dream. Sorry longthing. I mean our dream.

I ll use squad rotation as I'm selling nobody.

The model is soley built on shirt sales. When the other players aren't playing, they are going around with trolleys selling shirts on match days.

To be honest, my only real concern about the whole arrangement is longthing. I mean if that username means what I think it does, he doesn't sound like who plays second fiddle and I want to be main man.

{Ed025's Note - i can see a bromance developing there davey.. :)

31 Jul 2021 08:54:51
Thunderbird is spot on.

Kelleher, Jones, N. Williams, R. Williams and Elliott have all shown enough to deserve our backing. We can't afford to keep buying in 2 players for every position because the UCL club developed squad rule means that we need to bring through our own youngsters or face a reduced squad size in Europe.

We have to trust our academy to produce good players. Neco is probably the weakest of the current crop but as far as reserve right backs go, he's hardly terrible!

The stick Jones is taking because he's not got a fancy name and didn't cost mega bucks, is astonishing. If we were signing him from another club it would cost minimum £30m. People would probably be happy then!

31 Jul 2021 09:54:21
@IPC12, you are constantly moaning and your reading of our players and what we need is way off.

Jones has been very good and looks like he will be an excellent option for us. I'm excited to see him continue playing and improving with us.

31 Jul 2021 10:33:54
It’s way way too early to make a judgment call on Jones. He has very good potential, upto him to show it on the pitch.
