Robertson: We have stayed together and that is the most important thing

It is fair to say that the summer transfer window has been a quiet one for the Reds. There has been no shortage of speculation, but there has been little to report on in terms of incoming talent.  Youngsters Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott have been the only two arrivals to walk through the doors at Melwood so far.

Depending on which camp you sit in, the measured approach that the club have undertaken this off-season will have either frustrated you greatly, or you feel similar to Jurgen Klopp and have full faith in the squad that did so superbly and exceeded all expectations last season .

In terms of a players point of view, Andy Robertson is more than content with the way things currently stand.

The Mirror reported the left-back as saying:

"The same got said about Tottenham last season, that they wouldn’t kick on without signings, but they went on and had a more successful season.

"For us, the most important thing was keeping all our players, and we’ve managed to do that. have all stayed together, and that’s a big thing.

"It’s about sticking together and getting even more familiar with each other. 

"We’ve had players that have been in their first seasons - Keita and Fabinho their first season is over now and they’ve settled in, so I’m sure they will be looking to kick on and so will everyone else.”

Robertson said the overall depth of the squad was there for everyone to see last season, and with key members returning after off-season international duty,  they will be well and truly ready for the challenge of the new campaign.

"Look, we’ve still got 5-6 players to come back who are crucial to this squad, and that will be make a big difference. 

"Then this season, I am sure it will be a good one…it’s about showing it now.

"So this is a competitive squad. You look and we have options all over. It’s about needing them - we’ll need them this season and we’ll need to use all of them, and then we will be fine. We are not worried at all.

"We will look forward, next week is the start of the season against Man City and we know how hard this season is going to be, but it’s one we really look forward to.”

Before Wednesday night's 3-1 win against Lyon, Liverpool had gone four games without victory in the pre-season.

However, the Scottish captain said this time is perfect for preparation for the long season ahead, and overall results are secondary.

“It’s pre-season.

 

"It’s about trying to get ready. We need to cram a lot in, in a short space of time. We have been doing double sessions before games, our legs are maybe a wee bit heavy.

Robertson is certainly looking forward to the reunion of Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane with the Senegal star due to return to the club on Monday after enjoying a break following the African Cup of Nations tournament.

“The forwards, the three of them are massive characters, not only world class footballers, but massive characters in the squad.

"It will make a big difference having them around, we’ll welcome them back with open arms. You’ll see the difference.”

Question mark over the other CB spot (I assume Gomez will cement that slot this season if he stays fit) but other than that I wouldn't want anyone to come in and take any other position. Its the bench we should be improving. There aren't many players if any that are there to come in and start. We have the best starting 11 in the world IMO especially with the way we play. My biggest fear is one of the front three getting an injury early season when the window is shut and us relying on Origi/Brewster/Shaqiri. Its going to be another tight title race with City and there will be very little room for error. We could be out of the race by Christmas if injuries hit us. 

 

Fuck knows who that player/s is/are but we need to do something.

Well kids, you're not getting any Christmas presents this year, but the most important thing is that you still have last year's presents.

And that big fuck off silver bastard we gave you a few months ago

Fucking nonsense really.   The type of shite that you hear from plucky underdogs 

 

Yet again under these owners, questions need to be asked why we're  spending fuck all.
