Eds with Phillips signing his new contract is there any talk of a loan being sorted tonight?

{Ed002's Note - No, Williams will go and I will expect him to stay after Liverpool failed to find a buyer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

ED02 - do i need to stay up until 11pm or later to watch a late transfer in going through. I could do with the sleep.

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt it at this moment in time.}

I imagine with Phillips it’s a case of protecting his value and hopefully find a buyer for him next summer.

I really like him, but thought last season would be the perfect springboard his career onto another PL team.

31 Aug 2021 20:44:38
But if he doesn't play his value will only decline. Sounds negative but its the truth.

31 Aug 2021 21:13:53
It depends on where your priorities lie.
Considering how short we found ourselves last season (hopefully a one off) I think having Philips on board is a sound idea. He's at his dream club, I don't think he'll be worrying too much about his value dropping.

Very very disappointing window for LFC.

31 Aug 2021 22:46:29
Yea, instead of being short/ light at the back we’re now short/ light up front. I seem to remember the front 3 struggling at least as much as our defence last season. Seems like we’re willing to gamble on this season like we did last.

01 Sep 2021 01:55:29
You don’t think that part of the problem was the lack of a defence - the supply from the back dropped in quality and frequency?

Or that our two most effective midfielders were forced to play as makeweight centre halves so that not only the defence and I’d field were both weakened?

Or that one of the front three had C.V. (maybe long C.V.? ) and that Jota took a while to settle in and had an injury or two himself?

Easier to say they are all past it I guess?

This will give minamini and ox to get some much nedded gametime.

01 Sep 2021 09:09:40
I think we have what it takes to 'challenge' in all competitions, provided we do not have major injuries like we had last season. That being said, most of our main competitors are strengthening but we just added Konate. Yes, we have Elliot, we have Ox and Minamino back. but the problem is we're not sure if they will step up or not, even if given the chance to play. Hopefully they will and it'll be a masterstroke by Klopp and FSG. Otherwise, we'll regret not signing another attacker or midfielder this window. Oh well. there's always that January transfer window if we really need someone.

{Ed001's Note - van Dijk and Matip back too.}

01 Sep 2021 09:53:12
I distinctly remember Mané and Firmino struggling to put away the most simplest of chances. That has nothing to do with defenders missing or midfielders playing outta position.

Jota didn’t take a while to settle in. He hit the ground running and was one of our best players early last season. His injury knocked his momentum. Don’t see how that impacts Mané and Firminos finishing ability and decision making in the final third which at times was appalling.

01 Sep 2021 14:12:37
Firmino's finishing ability is mid-table capability.
Without Salah's contribution, Liverpool will also have be mid-table, juts like Firmino.
Often said that Firmino's greatest contribution is linking up play, and not necessarily scoring.
The same was said of Heskey, linking up playing, holding the ball, occupying the defenders, defending from the font.

Bottom line, no.9 need to be like a no.9.
They need to score goals, like a Haaland.
If he could fetch us some money, I would have upgrade on him.

{Ed001's Note - and yet Owen will tell you that playing alongside Heskey increased his goal tally massively.}

01 Sep 2021 14:28:51
Waynechai, Salah himself has said multiple times along with Mane that without Bobbie facilitating them over the years, they would not be anywhere near the players they have become so how has Bobbie done all he has done if he was a mistake player?

“A goal scorer needs to score goals” if that was the case then your beef is with Klopp who discarded Benteke and let Studge go and chose to keep Bobbie? And comparing a true baller like Bobbie to Heskey sums up your rant perfectly.

Lastly, I propose you read the response Ed01 made to your comment. Priceless.

01 Sep 2021 20:20:36
Mid table capability striker who scored the goal that finally bagged Liverpool the World Club trophy.
Wayne if you think Liverpool should be ditching Firmino in favour of a "traditional no 9" then you've got no idea of how Klopp wants his team to play.

01 Sep 2021 22:48:00
A lot of people forgetting that the disjointed nature of defence meant the midfield (missing fab for most of it) was pulled back to provided added cover. Same for the front 3, they were often dragged back to create openings which made our attacks slow, predictable and ineffective.

It’ll be much different this year.

02 Sep 2021 09:57:50
Our 2 full backs were covering 2 inexperienced centre backs instead of joining the attack, that definitely had an impact on the front 3.
