      He's doing a damage limitation job, saying all the right things about why we haven't signed players. As he did for years, when people asked him about the goalkeeper and defender issues we had every week.

      Finishing in the top 4 is meant to give you an advantage in boosting the squad, as is Winning the European Cup. Where has all the revenue from last season gone? It's not going on improving the squad, that's for sure.

      We face City and Chelsea for major trophies in the next couple of weeks. We're about to enter possibly our busiest season ever, and need enough resources to cope. We don't want to face Spurs and the mancs during the traditional post-Christmas slump, with the squad stretched to the limit again. The alternative is another 9 months bemoaning how City can chop and change players every week, and we can't. He's saying what he has to say in public, but one reserve centre back, is a long way short of what we need.

      Stop talking sh*te

      And anyone who thinks the “community” shield is a major trophy needs to have their head read - it’s a pre season irrelevant friendly

      And we have 4 CB’s btw

      The charity shield and club world cup are major trophies?...really?

      Do all of us a favor and go sign up on the Dalian Yifang forum..and continue your lifelong pursuit of Rafa and leave the rest of us the f**k alone.

      But according to you, something you’ve stated in the Rafa thread many times - Klopp wasn’t brought into the club to win the league, he was brought to the club with the job of having us finish in the top 4.

      Which is correct, from the owners perspective.

      We can argue the toss over whether facing up to City these days with silverware at stake, is a friendly or not. The Club World Cup though is a major competition, and everyone will recognise that when we win it for the first time.

      The Boss seems happy enough with his striking options. He has: Salah,Mane,Firmino,Origi,Brewster,Woodburn,Wilson,Awoniyi. Is it enough given our expectations etc.Would another experienced striker go amiss. Might not be a problem short term but get a bit deeper in. Injuries, loss of form.

      To be fair, given our expectations, there is only actually 4 recognised and proven players in your list. Even then I wouldn't put Origi as a reliable option over the course of a full season given our expectations. Granted he scored some massively important goals and they were goals that will go down in history...BUT, on the whole performance wise, he was clearly someway off the level of the main 3.

      But Klopp knows what he's doing, he's developed enough players for us to put our faith in him where Brewster in particular is concerned, a player he seems to rate very highly. That's one of the many good things about Klopp, he wont go out an panic buy to add to our ranks, if he signs a player then it's because the club has genuinely done it's homework on the player. After all, this was a manager who put 100% faith in an 18 year old, inexperienced RB over an established first team and International player and it proved to be a damn good decision.

      Can we get back to Klopp now please?

      AZ posted an interesting article in one of the transfer threads about how we keep our business quiet/secret.

      No doubt Klopp is on board with that, and if we bring someone in, he will give them the full Klopp treatment.
      I wonder sometimes, is there a player who hasn't played for him before that could slot right in.

      Yes, but plural systems, becuse we have about half a dozen that I've been able to see, which means there's probably 20  :laugh:
