      We need to reflect on the Pre Season and what its for because the time schedule the heat the travel is really not good for preparing to play in the EPL. It may well be good for the Bank Balance but how it benefits the team is in doubt. We don't play football in that sort of Temp and it must be very tiring for the lads.

      This is true, but only in the states for 3 friendlies, then back to Scotland yay!!, then france.

      I think by time the norwich game comes round we will be fine.

      The squad is light of 1st team players just now, arguably our best players, salah, mane, bobbi, Alison & naby & big Shaq injured, so all the young lads are getting their chance, all good and all that stuff as klopp says. ;D

      I think Jürgen has made a few signal comments that he isn't happy with this format of Pre Season . He will be happy to be back at Melwood or will he as its going to be 32'C today.
      It looks like he doesn't want Couthino back here so with Clyne down and out I would love to be a fly on the Wall when he asks where are the players or player I have asked for. I  get the feeling in private he will not be calm cool and collected.
      I do think there is a blockage with Neymar,Bale,Couthino all part of the problem once they move it will release funds and players into the market

      Possibly mate, and as klopp has stated, its not so easy to add quality our 1st team, its so good already, he wont just want to buy an average joe for backup, when he can coach a young lad from u23s to do a backup job.

      To me hes happy with Gomez, being cover for RB & RCB, Milner is cover for Robbo and all MF, then if struggling these u23 lads are showing great promise.

      Origi, Brewster & Big Shaq are cover for the main front 3, so thats not bad, we could maybe be doing with another top Striker, but thats getting into realms of 100mill and crazy wages, which teh club & klopp dont want to do in case it upsets the squad harmony.

      We spend big last couple of seasons, his squad is now where he wants it, bar a little tweak here or there.

      Not disagreeing, but what comment in particular?

      He didn't look happy during and after the match last night. at one point Robbo hit a cross and it went into touch on the other side of the park, illustrating how ridiculously narrow the playing surface was. Klopp gave a rueful shake of the head.

      As I mentioned on the match thread, there are plenty of stadiums in the u.s. with good pitches and appropriate seating and boundaries. If the team is using these games to get ready, then let's not get in the way with silly arrangements

      Agree. It's pathetic that they have to use baseball stadiums to play games when there are so many venues available. I get Fenway because of FSG/Red Sox, but Yankee stadium? makes no sense. MetLife stadium is just over the water in NJ and is of proper dimensions if they want to cater to the NY area.

      Surfaces are very poor, made me uneasy watching all the games during the tour.

      Didn't watched last night's game but watched the highlights earlier this morning and the field was amazingly narrow. Can't believe professional teams are made to play in fields the size that travel rec teams probably play in. Not to mention the surface, as you say.

      Looking to trade mark the name ‘Liverpool’ to protect club & supporters (🙄) ...

      Quote
      Liverpool Football Club has moved to trademark the word “Liverpool” - but has stressed it is “only in the context of football products and services”.

      The Reds say the application to the Intellectual Property Office is to protect both the club and the supporters “from those benefiting from inauthentic products”.

      They'll live I'm sure.

      Cant trademark the name Liverpool i'm afraid, or the colour red. They've already trademarked the liver bird with LFC under it, what more do they want?

      Theres more Liverpools about than just this club for one thing.

      They tried trademarking Allez Allez Allez as well the cheeky cu*ts. Trying to make dollar on the back off it. The word Liverpool isn't theirs, so can f**k right off.

      So you want to ban the fellas who sell scarves outside St John's and down Anfield road on match days?

      Club has to give something back, no need for their rampant American style capitalism. Its greed, no other way to describe it really.

      They own LFC. Not Liverpool, not the Liverbird, not the colour red, not our chants.

      It's not all about counterfeit stuff though. It's about good honest people like those that run HSOAB, Transalpino, fan culture stuff all worn by a lot of our travelling scouse army in madrid. It's easy to say have no sympathy when you don't know who will actually be affected.

      I find the quality stuff you’d want to buy usually won’t be plastered with the word ‘liverpool’ so hopefully the original creators who sell unofficial quality gear won’t see their income damaged

      Are people reacting to the clickbait headline as oppossed to the details here? Seems the club has always trademarked it's stuff,just there's way more of it now and way more people to consume it,3 f**king offi shirts every year,down to all the 6 times merch.I don't object to the slightly cheaper t-shirts,scarf lot and i don't think the club is going after them. But it's summer and we gotta have a moan about something! :kop5cf8koxp6: hopefully not a copywrite infringement there!!

      It's a multi million dollar business,they ain't gonna give stuff away.Just like the street sellers mark up their prices everyone is out for something,no?  I think most clubs/all clubs do this trade mark thing,but a few people,no clue why SOS got involved, have some kinda agenda and stir sh*t up.

      With the amount of money pouring into the club from TV deals, commercial deals, match revenue etc etc I think it's in poor taste trying to trademark Liverpool to be honest mate.
