A deal for Liverpool's 30-year-old Brazil forward Roberto Firmino to move to Juventus is reportedly "very close". (Corriere dello Sport - in Italian)

Agree0 Disagree0

He wouldn't be playing with the first 11 yesterday if that was the case. It is clear that the last 30 minutes was the team that we should expect to start versus Fulham.

28 Jul 2022 10:55:53
Really can't see Nunez not starting against Fulham, guys a handful.

28 Jul 2022 12:15:43
Bobby going nowhere and Nunez will start v Fulham. Nothing to see here.

28 Jul 2022 12:34:35
I'm all in for Nunez to start against Fulham. But it seems like Klopp thinks different of what we see during the pre season. Nunez barely played with Diaz and Salah and it was really odd for him to play 45 minutes with a mix of the B and C squad and then once the A team came on he was long gone. Here is hoping he starts on the first day tho.

28 Jul 2022 14:02:48
I feel the opposite. I'd sooner Klopp approaches Nunez like he did Fabs and take his time to embed.

28 Jul 2022 20:36:37
Me too Gandalf, give the lad a chance to settle in, and play him when he is ready.

28 Jul 2022 21:50:56
Nope, if he’s fit he starts. He’s a professional footballer and strikers thrive on goals and you don’t build confidence in the bench.

28 Jul 2022 22:13:31
1JJ see your point. Maybe going straight in for some players helps them focus. Having seen countless forwards fail from the pressure of not scoring, take Timo, I'm saying a bit of time might be a good thing. We'll see in a few weeks time ey!

28 Jul 2022 23:54:35
Even if Nunez had started with Salah and Diaz against Salzburg, I would not start him against ManCity or Fulham. He's simply too valuable a commodity to throw in into the deep end. I prefer that he train with the starters and then get eased into the first team for EPL games, whenever the time is right. Until then we have Firmino, who is an old hand with the players (he knows them all and knows their game), the tactics and the strategies.

I know Jota is injured. But no idea when it happened and what it is exactly. Does anybody know?

29 Jul 2022 02:03:23
It’s about learning the way the team plays and what is expected of his all round game, fitness, etc. He has been at the club for three weeks and played half a game in 3 pre-season friendlies. Let the lad get settled in, the worst thing that could happen is he doesn’t live up to everybody’s expectation in our first two or three league fixtures. Bring him on for the last 30 minutes against Fulham, hopefully, with us 2 or 3 up and there’s no real pressure on him.

29 Jul 2022 06:03:07
Jota had an injury when playing with Portugal at the end of last season. Same injury occurred once he started training with us.

29 Jul 2022 09:45:46
Aray Klopp has said Jota could be out of for a considerable time I believe. Unless I miss read it.

If Bobby starts he really needs to hit the ground running with regards to goals. It’s a well documented point that he starts slowly with goals and whilst I think Diaz is a very good player he’s yet to find his goal scoring touch. Without Mane that leaves Salah on his own to supply the goals as despite others chipping in they aren’t known for double figure goals.

We’re starting the season with Mane and Jota’s goals so someone really needs to step up.

Jones has said he wants to score 10 and assist 10 this season so that’s great he’s aiming for the stars and I’d like to think quite a few others are too.

All though it’s only pre season we only had 3 goal scorers in 4 games. Which were Salah, Hendo and Nunez. Nunez scored 4 of the 7 and now we could potentially start him on the bench. Yes he didn’t score in 3 games but Bobby and Diaz didn’t score in 4.

29 Jul 2022 10:33:26
Meant to say without Jota and Manes goals.

29 Jul 2022 13:00:36
Clearly Klopp knows best but if it was my choice and if I was Nunez I’d be chomping at the bit to play - maybe a super sun role when legs are tired early season for other teams is best but either way I can’t wait.
