Is Lovern all but gone Tris?

{Ed001's Note - all but gone? No, he might well leave but nothing has been done yet. No offer has been acceptable so far. Plenty of time yet though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks like Roma have got Smalling instead.

Lol?

30 Aug 2019 00:39:51
With Roma seemingly looking like they are getting smalling I'm guessing they have ended their interest in lovren?

30 Aug 2019 06:30:26
Jeez, they must have been desparate, Smalling is an awful footballer.

I'd suggest Lovren is staying after what Klopp said today i. e. we had four CBs last season and still had to have Fab do it due to injuries and that they will ALL be needed again this season.

30 Aug 2019 18:55:25
If we want to challenge for all the top honours you need 4 capable CBs over the course of maybe 50/ 60 games. Be a huge risk to let him go, just 1 injury immediately leaves us bare at the back. Lovren is far from perfect but as squad player for backup with his experience there aren't many CBs around with better quality as a 4th choice. 1 more year and then let him choose his next club if he can't hold down a regular spot for us.

This time last year matip was in his position but took his opportunity to claim 1st team spot. Competition is strong in CB and let the young lads have another year of development before we prematurely rely on having to use them.

I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

One thing that has been clear is lovren looks much better beside VVD, as does matip and Gomez. Yet matip and lovren are poor together. The key is when they have a leader, someone to organise and talk beside them they look much better. Lovren and matip don't show those qualities.

Like Ferdinand and vidic were such a good pair as they complimented each other's strenghts.

Henchoz looked good with hyypia leading but put henchoz beside matip for example and they would struggle.

You need the right pairing to suit your players strengths. Lovren and matip have had a much better performance level over the last 18 months with virg than anytime previous.

For once I’m with Ed25 on this. Lovren is not a very good defender. He’s a decent 4th choice but one that you hope you never have to use.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm.
======================

why hmmmm, what are you insinuating ed025 . He is a Liverpool player so must be very good . an earlier post put Matip as one of the best CBs in the world, Lovern is not far behind if not even better, world cup and champions league finalist . The red shirt automatically turns you into the best in the world, remember Djimi Traore, a champions league winner.

{Ed025's Note - you sound like redwolf roy, now i know your very tongue in cheek here but matip has done very well to be fair to him mate..
