      That Kaide Gordon kid looks sharp. Good first touch, nice feet.

      High hopes for Elliot this season, hope he gets plenty of minutes.

      aye he is a good wee player.

      Really hope we have decent cup runs this year so these guys get more game time.

      Ox in the false 9 with Elliot in a midfield role. Ordinarily i would have expected to see Mo up front, Elliot on the right with Ox in the middle. I wonder if Klopp is genuinely thinking about Ox as a Bobby change-up? Be interesting for sure.


      I think it‘s a good idea and Klopp said so too in a short interview with German Skysports. Ox looked natural, ready to press and to take advantage of won balls.

      Read somewhere Ox might be used in a more creative / #10-type position which would give him more space to use his long-range shooting threat. This may mean going to a 4-2-3-1 formation, however.

      Jürgen used a 4 2 3 1 mostly at Dortmund right?

      Would suit Firmino as a 10 as well if we played Mane, Jota and Salah

      Talk of trying different formations and people in slightly different roles like the ox. Interesting to see how things go over the next fee weeks.

      I'm looking forward to it so f**king much, Jürgen's got something up his sleeve.

      Just start the footy already!

      Would certainly be an attacking formation. Interestingly would only leave two midfield slots to be chosen from among Hendo, Fabinho and Thiago (not forgetting Milner, Naby, Jones).

      On a negative note, Minamino looked pretty meh. I have to admit I had such high hopes. He looked like a more mobile Bobby at Salzburg. But so far nothing. Also his body is just not made for european adult pro football. I think he and Origi will be actively offered around, while I think Shaq won‘t, but sold if a good offer comes in and he wanna leave.

      Don’t think there will be any doubt that first choice will be Thiago and Fab.

      Certainly need players to remain relatively injury free, to make a real impact, on a title challenge in the coming season.

      Konate is Rapid, that was my take away, I can see him playing a lot this season.

      If he's quick at this stage, that bodes well.

      If he's quick against the likes of Vardy, when the ral stuff starts, that'll be exceptional.

      He's only 22 though, so I'm not expecting the finished article.

      He'll make mistakes.
      It's how he deals with them that'll show his character.

      Jürgen said Tuesday not to expect Joe or Virgil to play against Mainz on Friday.


      You mean he's trying to give Mainz a chance!!

      Really looking forward to the game this evening and it's great that this one is a full 90 minute affair. Am hoping to see Mane grab anther goal and have a good game. We need this lad firing on all cylinders to have a chance this season.

      Today's lineup:

      Kelleher
      Trent
      Konate
      Matip
      Kostas
      Milner
      Keita
      Elliott
      Mane
      Salah
      Ox

      Not sure what the midfield and forward structure will be.

      Mane-Salah-Elliott?
      Keita-Milner-Ox?

      Oh wow, was not aware he’d be tried as forward. Thought it was going to me AM. Interesting.

      Keita is having a good game apparently, that hopefully bodes well for the new season fingers crossed.

      Bit of snorefest of a game unfortunately. A few bright spots for me were Konate, he looks like he can defend, was always in the right place and showed some good instincts whenever they had a sniff of goal. Keita was bright and the pick of the bunch going forward and i liked Clarkson's performance in the 2nd half. Other than that, no injuries and some fitness is all you can celebrate plus it's always good to get a win in my book.
