    Project Big Picture

    I get the idea about 18 premier league teams but the reality is that the clubs will simply replace the matches with other ones - an expanded champions league/prestige preseason games etc. I don't think it is about reducing the workload at all. Two thirds majority does seem a bit high but reducing it to the nine teams who've been there the longest is way too much. And do we really want to be getting too cozy with the Glazers? The stuff on opening accounts up is impressive - not least since we seem to be relying on Man City and Chelsea to support this proposal! Other than ourselves and United is anyone publicly behind this?
  2. I actually feel sorry for some of these players who were never that good and were given foolish hype - Biscan, Cheyrou, Pongolle. The obvious disasters would be Cisse and Carroll. What I never understood about signing Carroll was that we had already signed Suarez. Did we ever envisage them playing together? What was the plan to use him?

    4-3-3 Trent Gomez Van Dijk Robbo Hendo/Fabinho Thiago/Wijnaldun/Jones Keita/Ox/Milner Salah Firmino/Minamino Mane/Jota 4-2-3-1 Trent Gomez Van Dijk Robbo Fab/Hendo Thiago/Wijnaldum/Keita Salah/Ox Minamino/Jones Mane/Ox Firmino/Jota Do we think this could be the 4-2-3-1 we've been talking about? If we've had one weakness of late it's against those teams that park the bus at Anfield. Could this be the answer. Also I'm not sure about Bobby as a No. 10. I don't think he played his best when we used him there.

    No chance Matip is playing. I'd play Gomez if he is fit.

    What abut our homegrown players? We look at about 6 or 7 at most.

    Diogo Jota

    Could he be a fox in the box? The sort we perhaps have been missing?

    Let's be honest, Brewster hasn't been given a real chance to prove himself in the 1st team. However if Klopp thinks he isn't going to work out I trust him. A buy back clause for not much more than the asking price would be good business sense. I think we were all expecting the transfer coffers to be bursting this year because of sales that haven't materialised (yet). I still say the player I'd like is Buendia.

    What's gone wrong defensively? 

    Let's keep things in perspective. International break, league settled, Trent hasn't had a pre-season. Yesterday should be a wake up call. Our offisde line didn't look it's usual self.

    Hasn't Naby been one of our best players since the lockdown?

    Well I generally try to avoid it so I wouldn't know. As for trying to help professional coaches beat Liverpool I'd find it very funny if managers were reading that paper for tips on how to stop us!

    Nothing very odd about that. I've seen plenty of 'how to beat unbeatable team' articles over the years.

    If we ignore Chelsea are we seeing a significant drop off in transfer fees? We're (allegedly) offering £22.7m for Thiago and demanding £20m for Harry Wilson - ignoring their different contracts/ages, how realistic is this? I'm really surprised we haven't see a few outgoings yet. Is a load of business going to get done on deadline day? We clearly have 7 or 8 players surplus to requirements. I'd have thought we'd get something for them! On Brewster - I'm amazed. I've not seen a lot of him but this talk about him not having the 'all round game' - he did very well in a brief loan spell at Swansea who pretty much accepted he got them into the play offs. He's 20. How about we wait a bit before deciding how good he can be? Only sell with a decent buy back clause.

    From what I've seen the players I'd have really liked this summer are Aaron Hickey, Emi Buendia and Thiago Alcantara. Amazed Hickey seems to be so cheap.

    Fraser had 14 assists in the premier league in 2018/19. One less than Hazard. Not to be sniffed at.

    Didn't we establish that Bobby wasn't really too effective as a number 10?
