Hi my fellow lfc friends,
I'm not a native english speaker so please have understanding regarding typos and misspellings. I joined the forum a while ago hoping to get input on theories that might be spinning in Klopps head. However I did realise after reading the rules that I wasn't allowed to create topics just yet.
So I'll sort of hijack this topic since it's closely related to mine.
So for the past weeks I've spent a couple of hours a day reading a lot of different transfer romours sorrunding Liverpool. And a lot of the speculation ties back to squad depth which all of us probably agree on. However I do think that media and us (the fans) are making to big of a deal out of it.
If we managed to sign 3 class players this summer we would be set for quite some time ahead.
I've sketched on a starting 11 containing three new signings which in turn would give us the depth we need. Have a look at this link for a more visual appealing overview: http://www.futhead.com/18/squads/3316345/
Mane - Bobby - Mo Fekir
Hendo - Keita
Robbo- VVD - De Ligt
- Trent Oblak
Bench: Ox/Lallana, Milner, Origi, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Karius, Clyne
Reserves: Mignolet, Matip, Ings, Can, Sturridge (Expecting most of them to be sold - the available spots we fill up with talanted academy youngsters)
Obviously I can't mention every lfc player above so I've left out the likes of Gomez, Moreno, Solanke etc.
If Bobby gets injured/sick we can push up Fekir as ST and Ox as CAM.
Ox, Origi and Fekir can fill for Mane and Salah as wingers.
Milner can fill for Robbo.
Clyne can fill for Trent.
Lovren has been decent in the CB role last few months and can fill for vvd/de ligt.
Ox, milner and wijnaldum can rotate with Hendo and Keita.
Karius can fill for Oblak.
The focus isn't the particular names I've decided to run with here. If it's Fekir or Dybala doesn't matter, neither does if it's Oblak/Alisson or someone else. What I wanted to highlight is that we are just 3 signings away from a true title challenge in the league.
If you could pick 3 players to complement our squad this summer wich would you pick?
My pick: Fekir
since he can play CAM, ST + winger and have a good eye for opening passes as well as a clinical finisher.De Ligt
since he is a natural-born leader, a complete defender and a mature, reliable performer at the back. Not bad for someone who will only just turn 19 by the start of next season.Oblak
since he has plenty of rutine and is a world class stopper. Karius will develop a lot chasing Oblak.
