    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    Curtis was out with his injury for almost 8 weeks. The first game he missed as a result of the injury was the Champions League tie against Atleti at Anfield on November 3rd. He returned from the injury against Leicester in the league on December 28th - He was an unused sub in the 1-0 defeat. He missed 8 Premier League games, 3 Champions League games and the League Cup quarter final win over Leicester - a game that he would certainly have started had he been fit. He’d always been the main player at the youth levels, where everything went through him as he played wide left with the freedom to come inside and influence games from there. Playing in a central midfield role for the first team is almost a completely different ball game. He has to learn the disciplined side of the game that he never had to worry about at the youth levels, he also still has to continue his attacking/creative game. That, plus the obvious physical demands that come with playing in the Premier League, let alone a Jurgen Klopp midfield. The best place for Curtis is here with us - He’s 21, has 74 senior appearances, 8 goals and 10 assists under his belt. I have no concerns over Curtis’s ability or potential - He can become a mainstay in the Liverpool squad for years to come.

    Loan Watch - 2022/23

    The jump from 23s football to senior football is massive, so it makes perfect sense to me that a teenager is not thrust straight into the upper echelons of senior football, regardless of their international experiences, which again are completely different to the rigours of playing 2/3 games a week at senior level. I am a little surprised that Aberdeen didn't ask to take Conor on loan to replace the outgoing Ramsay, as it would have made perfect sense for both parties. That said, Bolton is a good move for Conor. Keeps him close to us and he has the opportunity to play a lot of games at just 19 years of age - likely more games than he would have been allowed had he moved to a club in the Championship. In the last 10 games or so last season, Bolton did switch up from a back 4 to a back 3 and vice-versa depending on who/where they were playing. They were indeed seeing a lot more of the ball than their opponents based on the stats in those games, so hopefully that trend continues in this coming season. Here's Conor's international career thus far:

    Mohamed Salah

    Offal - Klopp's reaction Jürgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah's finest years are still to come after the Egyptian committed his future to Liverpool with a new long-term contract. Having scored 156 goals in 254 appearances since joining the Reds in the summer of 2017, Salah today penned fresh terms to ensure his incredible Anfield spell will continue further. The 30-year-old was named PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year following a 2021-22 campaign in which he netted 31 times to help Liverpool lift the Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup while also finishing runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League. Klopp hailed the news of Salah’s renewal as the best decision for both club and player, outlining why he expects the No.11 to only enhance his repertoire in the seasons ahead. “This is a special treat for our supporters to enjoy their weekend even more. I’m sure there will be some celebrations for this news tonight,” the manager told Liverpoolfc.com. “Really pleased – really, really pleased. It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now. “Of course it has taken a little time but that’s absolutely OK and the best things are always worth waiting for anyway. Mo is one of the best players in the world; it’s only normal there are things to sort when you are at his level. So big credit to Julian Ward and Mike Gordon for guiding us to this destination. “I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something, because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend. “Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it and he gets his rewards. His ability and his skill level gets higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also. “He is adored by his teammates. As coaches we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool. “It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer and it means we can achieve more together.”
