In all honesty I've given up trying to predict who we are going to sign now at it's all data driven, so it will probably be somebody I never would have predicted. 

 

Could anybody on here have predicted we'd have signed Thiago, Diogo Jota or Tsimikas towards the back end of last season?

I'm beginning to wonder if @El Rojo doesn't predict what happens - he makes it happen.

Upamecano is an interesting one. He’s pretty smart, honest , hard working, very ambitious. He’s good obviously but a bit sensitive, emotional but still very young.

 

French media always point out dream club or favourite one when young. For Upa, never heard of any. He’s pretty silent.

What about that Croatian lad at Marseille. My nephew thinks he is very good. I’ve never seen him play.

This is a list of centre backs out of contract in 2021. This is the 1st page of 4, but I decided it was probably worth stopping at this point with names like Luiz, Rojo and Sokratis at the bottom of it. I'm assuming we'll be shooting above them.

Would like Declan Rice but he would cost a bomb and I reckon he has Chelsea 2021 written all over him. Seems like a good lad and can play centre half and midfield.

 

Would never have thought we would go for an Alaba, but after signing Thiago, I reckon there is a chance. World class player and can play in multiple positions.

I don’t rate Rice at all

That sounds like something one of our chief scouts might say pre-Edwards, judging by some of our transfer calamities.

I like him a lot. When you think of his age, he's very good. Having said that probably could get someone as good or better on the continent for half the price.

He’s about to get dropped . Just good enough for ligue 1.

Not sure if he is really good enough at least at the momemt but I've not watched him much. 

 

He would make some sense though as we are very close to the limited with numbers for home grown players. 

We end up having to register youth players as homegrown when they could be left out the squad and still play

Fair point. He's very good but isn't good enough to start right now. In a few years, he could be really top class though imo. 

 

His versatility is something that really appeals to me though, especially with the amount of injuries we are having.

Every time I watch rice, I think he's fucking shit. People keep saying how versatile he is, but he'd join us and become our worst midfielder and worst defender. He'd be fit more often than most of the squad (certainly Gomez, matip, Henderson, fabinho, thiago and keita) and Gini is likely to move on in the summer, but aside from not getting injured much and being English, I can't see what's going for him.

I think Rice is pretty good, but he's no value for money. And do we even know how good he is in defense? Good midfielder, but little proof at centre back.

Interesting article in The Times today. Looks at an AI player recruitment tool and suggests Tah is our best option for CB.

 

Also suggests Sanchez's best move (for him) is to Liverpool.

I don’t give a shite who we get in, once we bring someone in. Let’s face it, it’s unlikely Edwards and co will get it wrong, whether we’ve heard of the player or not.

    • Proof is in the pudding this season the injuries have had their effect and shown fully the limitations in the squad. A crowd, refs not being cunts and a few new players might help. Mental and physical tiredness too after the last few seasons.
    • We really miss that talismanic player who wills the other players to step it up a notch. Salah is great and all but he’s not imposing in the sense Gerrard or Suarez was where the other players would be ashamed and embarrassed not to give it there all. We have Virgil and Hendo but obviously that’s the crux of the issue. I’d swap all three of our forwards for a young Suarez.
    • I think Kloppo’s style is very ambitious. We need all our players to work very hard and do their part. If everybody does and every single player sticks to the game plan, we’re almost unstoppable. But when one or two are out of form, or a new player doesn’t stick to the game plan 100% we’re equally poor. That counter pressing style is great when we force opposition out of options. Then we’ll win the ball high up the field and can immediately use the unbalance to our advantage. If one single player doesn’t do his job, there’ll be a way out for the opp and all we achieve is being more vulnerable with too few people back to defend. If we do succeed with the high pressure, and one player doesn’t commit himself to the immediate attack, but i.e. plays a back pass to keep things controlled, the risky high line was all for nothing. We’ve seen this from Kloppo before. When it works, his teams are the best in the world. When it doesn’t, clueless. In a way it’s either on or it’s not, nothing in between.
    • I wonder why that's all people are doing when we've watched the same game play out for months on end . There essentially is a line on the pitch that moves with play its made up of players.
    • I hear a lot about the loss of Van Dijk and Gomez and Matip impacting on the team.    But for me, Gary, there's two names Liverpool have missed much more this season.   Des Ire and Mo Mentum.
