      Agree mate.

      I'm laughing more at the fume this will create.

      Oh it’s been good already seeing the meltdowns and only expecting to get better.

      Tell you what, all those players we gave extensions to that are key cogs in one of the best teams in the sport, we should have sold them and could have bought lesser but more expensive players to replace them so we could brag about how busy we were during the transfer window. Hell yeah!

      Or we could have extended their contracts and signed another player or two on top of it?

      It shouldn't be one or the other for us.

      The current squad is completely full so it seems reasonable that the club won't bring anyone in without first shifting some guys on first.

      Ideally the likes of Karius, Ojo, and Origi are moved on one way or another by 11pm tonight, with a winger brought in, but most realistically the only business left will likely be Ojo sold or loaned, and Karius loaned (even if LFC cover some of his wages again).

      I don’t think it was a case of one or the other

      We know the club are very sensible when it comes to signings and finances and we normally applaud them for it


      If there isn’t a player that ticks the boxes for them they aren’t going to buy them and that’s Independant from giving players new contracts

      And it's not. We addressed the biggest issue which was a quality 4th CB and the squad is full. With Elliott taking Shaq's spot in the squad and Taki staying there wasn't going to be more activity unless others departed.

      Elliott has shown in pre-season and so far through the first few games that he's deserving of being given playing time, and can play in midfield as well as backup up front in RW. I much rather give those minutes to Elliott than to spend money on some hack like Traore, though the latter would have appeased the net spenders because we would have brought in someone for up front and spent money.

      I am completely comfortable with this team going into the season and there will be January window to fix any unexpected issues should they arise between now and then.

      Completely not dawned on me that we have had 3 contracts renewed today.

      Half expecting extentions for Origi and Salah to be announced today the way things are going. Very disappointing day.

      Looks like Saul is off to Chelsea on loan  :f_wah:

      Further to the PL squad list above, it's worth noting that the CL squad rules are a bit different, and with Phillips staying there isn't space to add a non-homegrown player even if Karius and Phillips are omitted.

      That's because we have 6 FA trained players for only 4 such spaces, so one of Elliott/Phillips/Henderson/Milner/Gomez/Ox need to be listed as part of the 17 non-homegrown players (eg. Elliott) and one of them omitted entirely (eg. Phillips).

      That being the case it seems unlikely that we're going to be signing anyone, unless Origi moves on.

      15. Minamino
      16. Origi
      17. Elliott (hasn't been at LFC for 3 years yet so he isn't considered club-trained by UEFA). Note that one of Henderson/Gomez/Milner/Ox/Elliott need to be in the non-homegrown list as there are only 4 spaces in the FA trained list below, hence why Elliott is listed here.

      3 contracts being signed is a good thing.

      The timing of at least two of those are not due to "PR reasons" as some have suggested, as the Rhys Williams and Phillips situations were always going to come down to the wire as the club assessed loan/buy bids from other clubs for them.

      The timing of the Henderson deal is the only one you could say was a little bit for PR reasons, but even then it's pretty obvious that the club have been working their way down the list of contract renewals and so the timing of Henderson's contract in light of those other resignings makes sense.

      The way you allude to Salah's potential contract extension is perplexing as well. He's the teams best player (arguably on par with VVD) and a Salah extension would be fantastic news for the club. In the past our best attackers have always tended to leave to Real/Barcelona/etc (eg. Suarez, Torres, Owen, etc), so it would be faaaaar from disappointing if his contract was announced today as well.

      Saul is a good player but with the numbers and quality we have in midfield that was never an option for us. It's never nice to see rivals making signings but it's hardly worth losing sleep over.

      Lol thanks for pointing that out, I overlooked that as I was editing the lists. I've updated the post now. Seems to me that Karius and Phillips will need to be left out of the CL squad even without any more additions.

      Thanks for the reply. We have more than 4 association-trained players so at least one of them needs to be listed among the non-HG players.

      I've re-edited the list above with a couple of corrections, including Milner being listed twice.

      As for Curtis Jones, he doesn't need to be registered in List A but can still be on List B for another year. Not that it makes a difference as there are two free spaces in the "club trained" list. Below is a quote from UEFA's website for your reference:

      Quote
      A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 2000 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday by the time he is registered with UEFA, or a total of three consecutive years with a maximum of one loan period to a club from the same association for a period not longer than one year. Players aged 16 may be submitted if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years without interruption.

      Clubs are entitled to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, but the list has to be submitted no later than 24:00 CET the day before a match.

      Essentially the main takeaways here are that:

      1. We can add a non-homegrown player to the PL squad with only Karius moving on.
      2. We can only add a non-club-trained player to the CL squad if Origi leaves. If he stays then we have no space in the CL squad.
      3. Phillips will likely be omitted from the CL squad.

      From UEFA:

      Quote
      1. Club-trained players – players who were on a club's books for three years between the ages of 15 and 21.

      https://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/news/026c-12ed33745f21-a63cc70aaed6-1000--champions-league-squads/?iv=true

      Gomez turned 18 on May 24th, 2015, and joined Liverpool on July 1st, 2015. Unfortunately that means that for the CL squad he misses the cut for being listed as "club-trained" by 37 days. Had we signed him prior to him turning 18 he'd count as club-trained and we'd thereby have an extra spot in the squad for a non-homegrown player right now.

      The game against Chelsea has shown again that we lack a world class OFFENSIVE midfield player. We will not be able to compete with the lack of talent compared to City or Chelsea. We will win something important once in a while like under Rafa in the 2000s but not consistently year after year.
