      It would be so good for another young academy player to get his chance and have a meteoric rise for our squad.

      Certainly looks like he has the tools for him to have a good go. Good luck Rhian!

      Could not believe what i saw yesterday, what an amazing game and the Kiwis must feel gutted.

      It was just meant to be, especially when the ball hit Stokes bat for the extra 4 runs.

      Well done England and let's hope LFC continue the picking up of silverware.

      The fans in Germany are major players in the running of their clubs, and obviously the club's interests are the fans No. 1 priority. Unfortunately we'll never be bigger than baseball, to the owners we have.

      So we're European Champions, it should be a big advantage over other clubs, in terms of transfer targets, and we need them. There are still issues with squad depth. Hence why as soon as we play them in the cups, out they go at the first hurdle, and we then have to "focus" on the league and European Cup.

      Their transfer policy, such as it is, is ridiculous tbh. I've lost count of the amount of transfer windows where we have signed nobody at all. Then there's the fiascos. The Dempseys and the Fekirs and the Konoplyankas. We had the chance to sign Salah as early as 2014, but refused. We had the chance to sign VVD 6 months before we did. Someone screwed it up and we had to wait. It took them 3 years with Klopp in charge, to sign a world class goalkeeper. That's before talking about the Balotellis and the Carrolls and the transfer committee, etc.

      Jürgen has now had to admit that despite being European Champions, we won't be busy during the critical summer window. Rival clubs are splashing out 40-50-60 million on players, we have bought one 17 year old centre back. You would think we were under a transfer ban. We have 3 extra trophies to compete for this season, and the fixture list in the league is tougher than last year, so we need enough resources to cope. The alternative is playing Henderson at right back and Wijnaldum upfront again.

      We are still waiting for the league title to come back home. Whether it's us or any other club, winning your national league title is bigger than any European success. As Shankly said all those years ago, "this is our bread and butter". And when it does come back home, I guarantee it will be more emotional than Madrid or Istanbul. Unfortunately, as you posted, our owner doesn't seem all that interested about winning the league, and I have a major issue with that.

      I don't have a problem with his nationality. I'm not exactly local myself so I know all about the considerable issues and restrictions about travelling to games. However, he is the owner, and an active owner is at most games his club plays, not someone who cherry picks the 2-3 most attractive games of the season. If he could find the time and the resources to get to Madrid, he can find them to get to games v Burnley. He just doesn't show up.

      If Suarez was a great player, which is true, how did he do us no favours? That doesn't make sense. He was one of our best players during their time in charge. The racism row was fake news. Therefore the owners should have supported him at all times. We won 5 league games after the ban was imposed, and Kenny was summoned to Boston to be sacked. Whether he's over it or not is irrelevant tbh. After all he did, and still does, for the club, the phrase "sacked Kenny Dalglish" is a permanent black mark over their heads, that cannot be erased.

      We have just won our first trophy in 7 years, or in other words it's taken us 7 years to win A trophy. Five of their first six years they have been here, we finished outside the top 4, sometimes out of Europe completely. Jürgen is the one who has made the difference. He deserves all of the credit for it. Without him, we would still be where we were when he arrived, wondering when the next trophy, let alone league title, was coming from.

      Give your arse a rest and let your head do some thinking - pile of sh*te

      Mahrez vs. Mane in the final. Hoping for a Senegal win as a preview of the season to come.

      Agree
      Ejaria falls into the same category as Ojo, Kent and Wilson
      All four have shown glimpses in preseason games over the years where they have looked promising and at times very good.
      I am a romantic when it comes to Liverpool players and always want British youth players to show their worth, given a chance and to hopefully go on to be first team players for us.
      The evidence to me is that 3 out of 4 of those aren’t gonna make it at our club, with Wilson being the one that may, just may be allowed to stay with us for the next 6 months at least to be given a proper chance.
