      No Signings, but...
      Jul 27, 2019 09:35:35 pm
      Pepe going to Arsenal.

      Bruno going to Utd.

      Clubs strengthening around us, and we seem to sit tight, happy with our lot. We're European champions after all.

      And like a lot of the fan base I started to feel a little anxiety. We've been here before. We need cover for X, Y and Z. We need a big signing to push our lads on, etc etc.

      But when you look at it harder, I start to feel more calm.

      Minus City, every other rival needed strengthening, badly. Arsenal where a shambles last year, and are still going into the season with Mustafi and Koscielny on strike.

      Utd still have Jones, Smalling, De Gea on the decline, and an over rated striker (Rashford) and a useless one (Lukaku)

      Chelsea have lost their most influential player of the past 5 years minimum, with no re reinforcements

      Spurs have strengthened, but not in areas where they actually need (Kane then who?)

      We have lost no one. We are a year together stronger. We have players back after a year out. Players who want to prove. Young players exciting enough to be compared to God himself.

      I'm optimistic, and now after thinking hard, not worried.

      I'm ready for battle.

      Let's go.

      Admit it everyone, you've missed the total mauling of syntax that somehow still fails to hide the complete absence of logic from the offered arguments. It's like there's been a reincarnation on the forum.

      So in summary, we've not strengthened, and our rivals have. This is a positive. Somehow, this makes it better.

      Reminds me of the time when some here were trying to claim that dropping points and losing our place at top of the table was also a positive.. and placed us in the perfect position. We all know how that ended.

      Keep trying though..

      I didn't know Everton & Utd had been out bulk buying?

      Chelsea have a transfer ban. City so far only bought Rodri and Arsenal might buy Pepe.

      So we need start panicking because of this.

      Go and have a lie down.

      They have strengthened, but none of them have actually strengthened the fundamental problem in there teams, like we did last year in VVD and Allisson.

      And where's this £50 million rated player gonna play? Who's he gonna replace? Do we sell one of the front three when this £50 million rated player is so f**king boss!!

      "No Signings, but..."

      This is like the "One, plus Solanke" narrative from 2 seasons ago.

      The club hasn't made a marquee signing, but let's not make stuff up.

      Signed:

      Sepp van den Berg (PEC Zwolle)
      Harvey Elliott (Fulham)


      Left the club:

      Alberto Moreno (Villarreal)
      Daniel Sturridge (Released) 
      Danny Ings (Southampton)

      Moreno barely got a sniff of football last season.
      Sturridge was clearly behind Origi during the second half of last season.
      Ings was already on loan at Southampton.

      Ox & Brewster effectively missed all of last season.
      Larouci looked promising at LWB before being assaulted.

      We'd all love a marquee signing, but some of the social media stuff has been ridiculous.
      Hard to improve on a team that just got a club record amount of points in the PL & won the CL.

      Klopp has shown he's prepared to wait for the right player to become available.
      Sometimes that means short term pain for long term gain.
      Would much rather that than what went before, when recruitment was scattergun.
      Effectively took an extra year to get van Dijk & Keita deals done.

      If we're after who I think we're after then I can wait another year if it means it gets done.
      Though I appreciate we live in an age where everyone wants the new shiny signing and wants it now.

      I get all that and I also know there's an 'I want it now' generation but there's also an argument had we got VVD in the August we may have challenged for the league that season too.

      My point is by waiting we could lose ground in the league and go out early of the cups.

      I genuinely get both sides of the argument.... but I just worry about the fall out if we don't hit the ground running on Friday 9th

      Its like wanting a particular car and instead of settling for one which is almost exactly as good you instead chose to continue taking the bus and paying for taxis etc whilst you wait another year. Its a really narrow minded view from Klopp and one of his very few failings.

      There's a few individuals (Moreno, Sturridge etc) but thats not the point of my post.

      My point is by not investing and bringing in players it could be seen as standing still and that nearly always proves to be the wrong move, especially in our recent history

      Its hard and really harsh to call him out on this issue when he's been proven right on at least 2 occasions in the last 18 months when he waited for specific players.

      The CL win has this fan base believing Klopp and LFC are invincible.
      Let's take a quick look back at that tournament.
      LFC got destroyed in 3 road matches to open the tournament
      LFC did dominate vs one of the weakest Bayern teams in recent history and against an overachieving Portuguese team
      LFC got crushed vs Barca on the road then their subs pulled off the miracle of miracles with a savy trick play.
      Lastly, LFC got to play a rickety Tottenham team in a horribly played game.

      LFC earned their trophy but in no way was LFC a juggernaut that steamrolled Europe, like Real Madrid typically has.

      My point: The team's vulnerabilities were on display last year despite the final outcome

      The good news: LFC should cake walk through the opening 6 matches in CL as the #1 seed this year and potentially have cash to spend in the winter transfer period to bolster the team if needed.

      he has a point though, other than Bayern and Porto it was a pretty shaky CL campaign, plenty of poor performances, including in the final. What it highlighted throughout the season was the fact that Jürgen had to play his front three even when they were clearly out of form or slightly unfit, that's why I and others find it staggering that instead of buying he has effectively sold forward options, and yes I know Sturridge was a bit crap towards the end but he was still an experienced player with an eye for goal.

      Nobody has claimed that.


      "LFC got destroyed in 3 road matches to open the tournament"
      Fair point. Form away from home was an issue at times.


      "LFC did dominate vs one of the weakest Bayern teams in recent history and against an overachieving Portuguese team
      LFC got crushed vs Barca on the road then their subs pulled off the miracle of miracles with a savy trick play.

      If you have an excuse for why LFC beat Bayern, Barca & Spurs rather than enjoy that run to the CL trophy then I can't help you.

      "The CL win has this fan base believing Klopp and LFC are invincible."
      Nobody has claimed that.


      "LFC got destroyed in 3 road matches to open the tournament"
      Fair point. Form away from home was an issue at times.


      "LFC did dominate vs one of the weakest Bayern teams in recent history and against an overachieving Portuguese team
      LFC got crushed vs Barca on the road then their subs pulled off the miracle of miracles with a savy trick play.
      Lastly, LFC got to play a rickety Tottenham team in a horribly played game."

      If you have an excuse for why LFC beat Bayern, Barca & Spurs rather than enjoy that run to the CL trophy then I can't help you.

      Has Lonergan actually been signed by the club? I presume he would be a #3 goalkeeper and maybe a la Manninger a couple of years ago would only see the park in a total emergency.

      But has he actually signed? I see he's in the roster for the training camp.

      The question i think needs answering, is if we hadn't done so well last year, would we have bought anyone this summer?  The whole management team and owners admitted in the run up to champions league that we overachieved last season, one or two year ahead of schedule in the "master plan". Does that mean they were always planning on bedding down last years signings within this window? I very much doubt it, and i expect (understandably) that summer plans were put to back of mind while everyones focus was on the run in at the end of the season.
      I agree with the sentiment we shouldn't be buying players for the sake of it, and we should all back Juergen and his waiting game - its paid dividends over the last 18 months.  With that said, we need to face the fact that we need to catch up with City who have the depth to challenge on all fronts, which is where were lacking. Salah and Bobbys dips in form in the spring cost us in the end as Divock wasnt yet stepping up to the plate.
      I hope Brewster, Ox and Keita can all pitch in with double figures this season to reduce the reliance on the front line. We should know soon enough, as I don't expect the fab three to settle back into the swing of things, until after the first international break.

      Fair play think we could all just lighten up a bit and stop with the personal insults. We are all reds on here ( I hope )  and want the same thing.

      I hope Brewster, Ox and Keita can all pitch in with double figures this season to reduce the reliance on the front line.

      This summer window was a fantastic opportunity to seriously strengthen the squad depth, so we could face the 5-6 competitions ahead of us without worrying how we would cope when x y and z are injured/rested. If you can't strengthen when you're European Champions, then somebody has missed a trick somewhere. Unfortunately it has passed by, and the squad will start the season more or less as it was. So we have to drag every drop out of the first XI again, a sizeable task with a tough fixture list in the league, and if we have any domestic cup runs.

      As for the wait and see transfer policy, it would be wonderful if every target waited for us, and only us, to come calling, as VVD did. Unfortunately most don't. Pepe has moved, De Ligt has moved, Fekir has moved. Understandably they don't wait around for us forever, they just go. It may not be a major issue at this time of year, come Christmas and January though it could be a different story. Obviously nobody will be bought in January again, because we usually don't, even if there are (hopefully) still 25-30 games to play.

      Brewster and Origi will fight it out to be the impact man off the bench role. Neither Ox nor Keita will hit double figures. Both are injury prone. And the left back situation is, well I don't know how we're going to deal with that when Robbo is out.

      The owners are lucky Jürgen blindly accepts the lack of transfer activity, and even defends it in public. There are many other coaches who wouldn't.

      One team has spent out £45mill on a player, whilst the other hasn’t signed anyone. Who’s that team?...Chelsea.

      Have to trust the club know what they are doing but if next season turns out to be a huge disappointment then questions will need answering.

      But Klopp wont just spunk money on any old playr just to be backup, he would much prefer to coach some u23s to make them better, and use them as backups.

      Our squad is pretty deep, deeper than some of the doom and gloom merchants would have you believe.

      Pre-season has made the squad look thin, due to all the late arrivals and some minor Injuries.

      We will be right at it for Norwich when the league starts, and dare I say it, fancy us to be up for the charity shield at weekend. a wee win v city would be just the ticket to remind all the naysayers how good we are.

      Our squad is pretty deep, deeper than some of the doom and gloom merchants would have you believe.

      I actually think so too, the only reason people think otherwise is because of City. To expect us to have two top class teams like City is completely unrealistic. We have to compare our squad and it's depth to the rest of the competitors and it's a hell of a lot deeper / stronger than the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.

      The only major area of concerns are cover / competition for the front three, and the lack of goals from midfield. Origi may continue his improvement along with Brewsters emergence, and Ox may get back to his best to address both of these issues. I would prefer not to leave it to chance and buy a rising star to challenge to front three, but hey Ox and Origi are pretty decent bets.

      The rest of the squad is pretty strong in depth I would say.

      I actually think so too, the only reason people think otherwise is because of City. To expect us to have two top class teams like City is completely unrealistic. We have to compare our squad and it's depth to the rest of the competitors and it's a hell of a lot deeper / stronger than the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.

      The only major area of concerns are cover / competition for the front three, and the lack of goals from midfield. Origi may continue his improvement along with Brewsters emergence, and Ox may get back to his best to address both of these issues. I would prefer not to leave it to chance and buy a rising star to challenge to front three, but hey Ox and Origi are pretty decent bets.

      Correct.

      Folk are panicking assuming all 3 front men will be missing at the same time through the season just like pre-season, thats never gonna happen, we might rest 1 or 2 at most depending on situations, or 1 may get injured which will give Origi a chance to play, he never let us down last season when he was needed, and if Origi isnt available its a chance for Brewster to shine.

      And we also have OX, Naby & Lallana all bolstering the MF this season, they all have goals and creativity in thier games, also cant see wee Shaq getting so many Injuries.

      Klopp has so many options its unreal.

      Even the discussion about Full back cover, Gomez & Trent cover the RB, and Robbo & Milner cover the LB, even if on the rare occasion these guys arnt fit, the young guys coming through are very decent and only getting better.

      can see the lack of signing being another Rafa rotation scenerio.  Some people will just not except not signing 1 big incoming player in a year.

      I trust Klopp, if he feels this squad (you know, the same squad who weeks back won the Champions League) is good enough to improve and keep challenging, then that's OK by me.

      Sure it would have been nice to add a couple potential first teamers, but it wasn't meant to be.

      So let's just look forward to steamrolling Norwich tonight.

      I agree, no point going over this any more now, we have the squad we have and it is a damned good squad, so lets look forward to a fantastic season.
