    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Really? I'm kind of fascinated by it. There's nothing more satisfying than a low-cost, left-field gem plucked from lower-table/relegated clubs. And this Liverpool squad is littered with them.

    Which is the key point I think. On what terms is he with the majority of the players now? Would the strong Brazilian influence at Anfield be enough to smooth over any rough edges? For what it's worth, I think the supporters themselves would be fairly forgiving, for the most part.
  3. With 5 subs next season, playing time should be less of an issue.

    It can be easy to forget that Klopp has never had the ability to simply retain his best players before. Perhaps what appears to be contentment from Klopp is that he is currently keeping his title-winning team together while developing a quality bunch of kids. If that's the worst case scenario right now, then things aren't too bad.

    Thank goodness the Charity Shield is only 4 weeks away. We've just gone into lockdown again. The more footy the better at this stage!
  6. Say what you like about him, but that's an enormous compliment.

    The runaway league winners spending only a fraction more than the first team to go down. I agree that there should be a couple of additions to freshen the squad up without causing too much disruption to what is clearly a tight-knit unit. In isolation though, that table is fucking outrageous.

    I like it. Cool socks too.

    Not sure, but the average difference between the clubs over the past 3 seasons would be avoiding relegation in each of those. I could go all night!

    Hilariously, the gap between Liverpool and Everton would've finished higher than Everton themselves!

    And that's the thing. They've been on the right side of so many 50-50 calls, it's almost taking the piss.
  12. What a shame he couldn't have been presented with the award in front of a packed St James' Park. A nice little wind-up to finish the season.

    Dejan Lovren

    His Liverpool career can only be looked upon as a resounding success. And on a night in Kiev when absolutely nothing went the reds' way, he kept one of the all-time greats very quiet. All the best to him.

    The shitness of modern football

    You see all this talk about Premier League clubs devaluing trophies by playing weakened teams in the domestic cups, yet the promotion system through the lower leagues does the same thing. Leeds gaining promotion was obviously a big deal. Just days later, they are officially confirmed as champions and it's almost an afterthought. West Brom gaining promotion was a news flash during the Liverpool v Chelsea game. Now you'll have a huge song and dance about teams 3-6 pushing for the 3rd spot. It's all over the place. Ideally, the champions are the only ones gaining promotion through league position alone. Teams 2nd and 3rd play a H&A tie, with the winner going up. The loser drops into a repechage-type play-off. 4th and 5th play a H&A and the winner plays the loser of 2nd v 3rd. The higher -placed team in any playoff automatically gets all advantages, ie their choice on which leg is at home, which end to kick to, who goes first in a potential shootout scenario. Make each spot up the league table mean something. The biggest thing would be no trophies or medals for anyone but the champions. Have a banner drop down, confetti, t-shirts etc, celebrate the achievement. Just no trophies.
