      Game tonight then its off tut midlands for charity shield. then 1 more friendly day after at Anfield.

      2 game back to back at weekend, means lots of players will get 90mins.
      Strange pre-season. Played a game here and there then right before the season is due to begin we play 3 games in 5 days.

      Yup. Squashed up cos of late finish for us and then internationals.

      Squad is massive so I guess it will be 2 totally different teams at the weekend.

      It would have been yes. Got to wonder how much they actually paid in total to get him though.

      in addition to the 60m release clause, allegedly there was 42m in agent fees on top of the 20-odd million paid to his father for being an "advisor". Then there's the 400k/week to think about.

      But we overpaid for Darwin  :D

      Yeah it’s misleading. People will say it’s 50mill because then it seems a ridiculous bargain for a player like that. But 50mill is what was paid to Dortmund, then there was another 30-40mill that went to his dad, then there’s the 400k+ a week, agent fee and signing on fee. Even if you exclude the weekly wage, the transfer cost to sign him was probably pushing 130-150mill.

      Just saw the squad for tonight, and ot looks like the team we are "saving" to start against City on Saturday will be: 

      Ali
      TAA - Joel - VVD - Robbo
      Fab
      Hebdo - Thiago
      Mo - Bob - Diaz

      I would expect this to then be the team starting against Fulham for the opener.

      Based on that lineup Klopp will be playing full strength side vs Citeh on the weekend. Nice to see what Elliot and Cavalho can do as part as attacking trio.

      Agreed. this is probably the team to play city at the weekend. Although not sure Allison will be fit in time ?

      Kelleher agained is not mentioned by Klopp and his staff.

      Midfield and defence have been very sloppy and slow today.

      I honestly don't think Keita has the quality we need to compete at the level we want to. I'm pretty worried about our midfield options for this season, not gonna lie.

      is this the same basic midifeld that won two trophies got to the CL final and were just pipped to the league by any chance. We have also added to it and young Elliot and Curtis will play more of a role this season fear not my friend Jürgen has got this covered

      Average to be honest. Nobody standing out, lots of sloppy passes, players slow to react in the midfield and defence, players out of position and the front players taking too many touches/too long on the ball.

      They practically missed an open goal from about 6 yards before they actually got their goal after a complete lack of communication between Adrian and Gomez.

      It’s your typical pre-season game really.

      Notable step up in quality since Salah, Thiago, Diaz etc came on. Seems a matter of time until we get a goal.

      Stronger looking line up for the last 25 minutes at least. 

      Might have been better having the Strasbourg home friendly tonight.
