      Agreed. Pace catches the eye and is apt to deceive; Djibril Cissé is the paradigm example. Traore is a beast physically but I’m not sure he’s a particularly complete footballer when you look beyond his speed and crossing ability.

      You can have all the pace and physical attributes you like but it takes a good deal more in the way of guile, subtlety and footballing intelligence to make it at the very highest level — qualities Jota has to the required degree but which I think his former teammate lacks.


      The thing with pace is you can’t train for playing against it. So regardless of how over rated Traore may or may not be, when he’s in full flow he isn’t getting stopped. His frightening pace will always add to his value…

      I think we’ll be ok this season for forward thinking players, Salah, Mane , Bobby, Jota, Memphis can stay in Memphis as far as I’m concerned, but IF we were to bring in a player to boost our front line I’d be going after Jadon  Sancho, it’s midfielders we need to be targeting, we were already weak in this area losing Gini makes us even weaker,
      Yes we have Curtis and wee Harvey but we cannot rely on them yet, Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago,are our go to trio, plus Milner, but, Hendo is injury prone, Milner’s legs another season older and he’s more of a impact player now, Fabinho is Fabinho and can’t do without him, Keita, well he’s in the last chance saloon, Ox not so sure he can produce week after week, Shaqiri is surplus,

      We need new blood in there, preferably with experience, youth and willing to smash through brick walls, Tielemans, Bissouma, Neuhaus, Raphinha are names that immediately spring to mind, any two of the first three ideally,

      I’ve said this before, but we really do need to start thinking about the next two to three seasons, in particular the front three, they, all will need replacing at some point, it’s obviously  too early yet in this summer window and not quite free of the impact Covid has had financially but from the next summer window it will become a needs must situation, getting players in early would be more beneficial and will smooth over the bleeding in process, and help piss on our rivals crisps at the same time, stealing a March in layman’s terms.


      I quite like the fact things are quiet, don’t think much will move until after the Euro’s, but you never know ?

      Do the front 3 need replacing? These boys can go to 33/34 easy - they are top professionals and super fit.

      We have Jota, if we can add another youngster (Harvey?) then I think we’re alright for the next 3 seasons at least.

      I'd want more than a kid to come in to supplement the front four.

      Elliot is a huge talent but with Origi and Minamino likely to be off I'd like another quality forward with some experience to come in.

      Preferably a CF as we don't really have that style of player in the squad.

      How many of us said Jota was who we needed last summer? How many of us said he would break up the front three? He did both.

      Jürgen is a master of taking players on to develop. To him, it's his No. 1 job as a coach. So when he brings them through, he hugs them and tells them how great they are. He even said that about Benteke.

      He would love to take on someone like Traore and improve him. Plus he would be more within our budget and easier for us to sign than Mbappé.

      It's a good move for everyone involved imo. We get a decent 3m (+ the Edwards' special, a 20% sell-on clause), and he gets to play regular football for a solid club. Don't forget he's already played 2 seasons in Denmark, so joining the biggest club in the league is a smart move. He'll get to play European football and will get more exposure. He's only 22, so plenty of time to get back to a bigger league.

      Yes. This is the group. We will contend for honors in the league and in Europe, barring a repeat of last season's injury crush. Take away January and February and our record over the past three seasons combined is just phenomenal.

      Questions about.Virgil and Joe, but we can and will continue to be a top team.

      The only questions against Virgil & Joe are when they will be fully match fit, shouldn’t take too long, for me Matip & Konate starting the season off is a given up until Virgil is ready, he is a absolute shoe in starter from that point onwards with the other three vying to play alongside him, i favour Konate, but any of the three will be fine, what a contrast from last season huh !!

      My only hesitation Billy is that knee injuries are difficult. I'm hoping for the best but we don't know what he will be like yet.

      I'm more afraid for January because of African Nations.

      We would be without Salah, Mane and Keita.

      I also thought that we would not be seeing Shaqiri playing yesterday.

      This is when we'll have a front three ofJota, Minamino and Bobby. Apparently we're all good up top as we are 🤷🏽‍♂️

      I'm pretty sure most in here have said they'd like another forward.

      The window is still open for almost a month.

      The Afcon is only two games missed is it not?

      Yea, I don't think it's anymore than 2 games. Finger crossed no injuries.

      If worst comes to worst, Bobby, Jota and Elliott could deputize as our front three.

      Just looked it up. AFCON is Jan 9 to Feb 6 so they’d miss our games against Brentford and Palace. We play Leicester on the Feb 9 so Klopp might rest those who make it to the final on Feb 6. Not sure if CL games would be played during this time period and any Cup games they’d be rested anyway.

      How is it disrespectful to point out that front three isn't strong enough? If one of them are having a bad game we'll have Origi to bring on.

      We don't need "a job" done after xmas. That's business time when it comes to league title campaigns. We need to be firing on all fronts. That front three, with Origi on for good measure, won't be firing on no front, minus Jota.
