This early on in the pre-season is utterly pointless, and as a fan event, it's a waste of time.
Half the players are going through the motions knowing that they are leaving or won't be considered as part of the squad. They are playing for their futures elsewhere. Only reason Klopp is playing them is to flog them to another club.
Then there are the other's who are merely starting to refresh themselves on fitness and beginning to adjust to the club.
Think some of you are reading too much into these games. I check the result, check the highlights if we score a goal.. nothing much else of interest right now.
Not "pointless" to watch the team you love and focus on how the players do, the error would be in, as you say, reading too much into what each one means. But "interesting" and "waste of time" are matters of opinion. I make no apology for looking forward to every occasion when Liverpool play. Also, if you don't watch the matches, how do you know half the players are going through the motions?
BTW, your man Sturridge may well be playing himself back into an important role with the team this season. Maybe it's all just shop window, but I could definitely see him staying and becoming a major contributor again.
