      Pre-Season 18/19
      Jul 02, 2018 11:30:42 am
      Rather than having pre-season pictures, chats and vids scattered everywhere, I thought it'd be a good to have it in one thread!

      I will start off with a Klopp and Naby hug :D

      There's a tall boy in the pics on the official site who looks like Matip for me, but he's not on the list, so any idea who it is?

      I've spotted Ings, Ryan Kent, Origi, Keita, Fabinho, Milner, Robertson, Lallana, Klavan, Moreno, Sturridge, Chirivella, Ojo, Ojo's Abs, and that's about all I recognize.

      Actually there are a few in there with new haircuts and I don't know who they are - anyone up for a caption identifying them all?

      It's just Lallana with new hair :D
      & Fabinho hasn't been given a number yet.

      After going through the rest of the pics, it really seems to be Matip. I guess he's there rehabbing, but he appears to be doing what the others are.

      Yeah don't think they matter much with numbers on the first couple of days of training, loads on twitter all trying to work out players numbers just because they saw Milner wearing a sleeveless top on with a small number 26 on it :laugh:

      Yeah, what's that all about.  Poor lad.  Keita walks in and takes Gerrard's number 8 and Fabinho's left there without anyone having his name on their shirts...

      Maybe he's off out on loan? ;)

      Waiting on somebody to leave...


      Edit: In Monaco he was 2 & 12. Brazil U23 he was 2.
      Guess he's waiting to have a word with Clyne or Gomez.

      For Saturday I would play the 1st half full strength available and change it in the half time.

      NB: Team no longer available

      This may well be the starting lineup. I wonder how they would do the 2nd half if Matip is not available (he is at least present at training), because then you only have one center back (Phillips) and one full back (Moreno) in reserve. I wonder if the U23s have staarted training yet and if so, they might pull a couple of those in for the 2nd half back line. I doubt they want anyone to play more than 45 minutes at this point of preseason.

      At midfield they could use Pedro Chirivella, Gini and Curtis Jones if they wanted - and then up front any three of Solanke, Sturridge, Ings, Wilson, Ojo, Kent, Camacho. Or Lallana could play midfield the first half Milner the 2nd, and one of those six forwards up front in the first half. Lots of options.

      I'm eager to see what Jürgen does, although I am reminded that a lot of these preseason matches are little more than training exercises.

      Quote from:  Klopp
      I think it’s a bit too early for Joel. He is in training, not doing all but in a few parts he’s doing more than the others. He’s not involved in football at the moment but from next week on he will be fully involved.

      That’s it, pretty much. On Sunday, Gini and Virgil are coming back and then they’ll start their pre-season.

      Adam Lallana will not be involved possibly, not sure. He’s a little bit ill, we have to see. I think Saturday will not be possible for him

      Just saw this. Not the best start for Adam, but at least its illness and not injury.

      Probably affords another young player a chance to play vs. Chester. I'm also wondering whether Sturridge and Ings will be used in these matches if both are expected to leave. Surely Markovic will be nowhere near the park.

      Thanks for posting this. I just watched it twice and want to see it in slow motion to help ID a lot of the players.

      Naby Keita IS A TERROR on 50/50 balls. Also, who is it that comes flying in with the challenge at about 3:20?

      Couple of young players who look really up for it in this are Ryan Kent (I think that's who it is) and Rafa Camacho. When LFC post vids of training, they do so much better to show this than those stretching clips. I know they won't show tactical training before matches and such, but this is giving nothing away, just showing the players playing football. Thanks again.

      I suspect it could be Sturridge? Flies in with his left foot, so I assume it's him.

      Yeah, they were suppose to have a live training session (probably boring warm-ups) today, but equipment got damaged (due to sprinkler :D) and they said they would put a training video up instead :)

      OK, since I know you can't wait, here's my updated prediccy for our two lineups in the Chester match. Klopp mentioned the other day that he wants to change all 11 players at the break, but that he doesn't have enough defenders to do this and play 4 at the back. While I suppose they could draft in a couple of guys from the U23s or 18s, he probably wants to give everyone who is in the first team camp a game (Matip and Lallana are ruled out with injury/illness).

      This match is really just a run out, so there's no harm done in playing 3 at the back, and that's the only way I see to make the separate XI thing work. So how about this:

      1st Half

      NB: Team no longer available

      2nd Half

      NB: Team no longer available

      Looks like some of the guys for this half are too new to the squad to be in the predictor, so I used players not involved to show where they would be.

      Kelleher is the 2nd goalkeeper, not George.
      Curtis Jones for the attacking mid role, not Alves
      Camacho for the left mid role, not Dunn.
