I can see us bringing in two full backs, a centre back, and a winger.

 

Maybe even a goalkeeper too, which would be a big call.

There's no way we'll pass another window without getting some more players in midfield. Coutinho is inconsistent, allen and lucas are injured. We'll need a back up striker too. We might retain borini or sell him and aspas and get someone more than decent

We've are supposed to have made offers to Valdes and Sagna, so that raises questions about the futures of Mignolet and Johnson. I would be very surprised if we got rid of Mignolet after one season, but I have little doubt that we would be willing to trade Johnson in if the right player/s became available.

 

We are also supposed to have scouted Gaitan and Markovic recently.

 

I have a feeling we might move for Caulker again if Cardiff go down. I would love to see us try to get Shaw and Lallana as well but it doesn't seem likely.

Linked with Richards last week. I like him as a player, but just seems to want to be built like an athlete instead of a footballer, its probably one of the reasons why he has had so many injuries.

For me the interesting question is who will be sold.  I suspect that a player or two that maybe the majority wouldn't want to see go will be out the door.  Agger?  Suso?  Who knows?

 

Anyway, we need a fullback, a centre back and a midfielder at a minimum.  Another forward and, if Agger goes, another centre back as well wouldn't go amiss.

 

As for which players to target, I have no idea.  That Firmino kid from Hoffenheim seems like he might be worth a punt, and we've been tentatively linked in a few places.

really don't understand the Valdes links, he has improved a lot over the last couple of years  (given he used to be fucking wank) but we're fine with Mig who's already better and he'll continue to improve, Valdes will probably go somewhere on massive wages anyway

I think we already have the better Spanish keeper

Im unsure about Suso, he is a talent but is he gonna get the game time if we challenge/get CL. who does he replace? another loan is def the right option for both parties but only to a team who will be up there in their league next season, playing with decent players

few things

wel'll go after Lars Bender after CL qualification + M'Vila

we'll go afer Konoplyanka once again, 8-10mil deal, B. Hunter is all over him

we're looking for long-term RCB partner for Sakho, huge belief in Ilori, Caulker, Howedes, Manolas, Papa - all possibilities

we're looking for new  long-term FBs, Ricardo Rodriguez target for LB, same Dodo/Roma

we've been watching Vela, Firmino and Douglas Costa.

I think Richards is an interesting one. Good mates with Sturridge. Have a feeling Rodgers can turn him into the player he promised to be. Its what he does.

 

Worth a gamble at 6 or 7 million.

I can understand why were linked with Markovic after seeing him last night for Benfica, fast, direct looks to be a player. Personally i'd love it if we signed Iturbe.

    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
    • Also, I don't know if there are many finer allegories for the human condition than Seamus Coleman's seemingly eternal struggle to keep his tongue in his mouth.  Despite the constant effort he's always destined to fail, poor lad.
