      Another clearout needed in January/Summer.

      Migs
      Karius
      Bogdan
      Klavan
      Lovren
      Flanagan
      Milner
      Markovic
      Ings
      Sturridge

      Depending how Ox performs from now until May he could also be on that list.

      A lot of dead wood to rid of before we can become competitive again.

      The big challenge will be for Klopp to bring in better quality if he stays.
      baz if we are is in the CL/EL then none of the players bar Markovic will be going no where... Read somewhere that Barca will be back for Coutinho in the January window with a bid of £97 m.... If we sell him we would have lose 43 m plus on what we could have sold him in the summer window gone ...

      Just spent 30 seconds on Twitter and I think every other tweet was about us being interested in signing a certain player. We must be getting a new full squad in January, no centre back though :D.

      Theo Walcott; he played for Southampton, didn't he?

      Edwards is bound to be interested. 👍

      Don't be silly matye, nothing to do with Edwards, Jürgen has 100% control over all transfers in and out. Mind you, Rodgers did try and sign Walcott once and we know from  experience that sometimes Jürgen (the sneaky bugger) goes in for a player which the blindingly molared diminutive Irishman went for.

      Not sure if this belongs on here, but Andy Renshaw, head physio has beensacked. (Or transferred)
      Wonder what we are supposed to read into that ?
      Issues with treatment of injuries ?
      Deflection of responsibility with training regime?
      What's your take on it, he's only been at the club about a year !

      Probably kept turning up late, or was a bit of a n*b or something. I don't think all these comings and goings are anywhere near as sinister as we all believe sometimes.

      Yeah, that or there may be someone better available. 😊

      On that subject - ain't it weird that [some] Reds fans will readily accept (and demand) a "better" manager, a "better" CEO and a "better" under 18 coach, for example but when you suggested we spend money on better players: the experts nearly vomited with rage.

      Although, to be fair, even that attitude has softened with time. The transition almost seamless. 😂

      Couldn't find anything mate.

      Just said he was sacked in the ECHO and Mirror.

      Where is he going as a goalkeeper coach?

      And that is quite a leap: physio > Goalkeeper coach.  ??? (Jack of all trades)

      One player I would be doing my utmost to sign in January is Shane Duffy. The man is a colossus in defence. Did anyone see his performances for Ireland in the qualifiers, brilliant. Rounding it off with a man of the match performance against Wales.

      Was wondering how long it would take to see members of the Irish back 4 (Especially Duffy) get mentioned.
      Congratulations. (You've not won anything :P )

      They did alright though didn't they. :D

      Would wait and see how Brighton are looking but if he plays the way he does in a green shirt it would be great. We said the same about Robbie Keane though. Ireland seems to be the opposite of England, players turn up for their country and are not always as solid for their clubs.

      Aubameyang... would be the one player i would go for, the amount of chances we make he would be banging them in.

      How is Jonathan Tah these days? I remember a few years ago him getting bigged up but haven’t heard much since? Only remembered him because I was looking for a young German CB in Fifa and noticed him...

      Looking at Inter-Milan I really wish we would go all out for Icardi in the summer.. only 24, a great finisher with 10 goals in 9 apps already.. someone who can finish all these chances we're creating.

      Don't know if he presses and how many balls he recovers though as it seems it's what we want in a striker these days so it will probably be a pass :(.

      Still can't believe Maureen sold him at Chelsea.

      Too attack minded for his boring style I suppose.

      Out of contract end of the season. FSG wanting freebies.

      Nothing wrong with a good freebie, thought I heard Bayern were after him though.

      I wouldn't mind that one though! Quality young player.

      That said I can't help but think, as is often the case with German players, that he'll end up at Bayern. Every time I see a German midfielder at a smaller team that I find interesting, he ends up there. Rode, Rudy, Kimmich, and so on.

      He has been playing as an attacking midfielder of late. Could be a good goal scoring midfielder in the future, but has the ability to play deeper too apparently.

      Just saw ['Football Focus'] that we only convert 8% of our PL chances. Can't be true; can it?

      Let's assume it is tho: should we be looking to sign a proper, dedicated striker? It certainly looks that way to me.

      Wouldn't surprise me seeing as we go through spells of finding row Z for an entire match. What was it recently, 100+ shots over a few games with only a few goals to show for it. We hit and hope far too often which will obviously bring the conversion rate right down.

      But yes, we do need an Aubameyang.
