      It's only preseason but the pressing and intensity so far has been a level above the last year or so. Hope this is a sign of things to come

      This team can win PL & CL, this team is deep enough. If we sign someone it'll be purely to improve the team, not due to need. Minamino looked really good for the first time. :) Ox shows signs of his 2018 self.  :) Williams looks comfortable to back up TAA. Tsimikas looks really good, in fact he looks better than Robbo considering his lack of playing time so far.

      No Shaq? Maybe because of a deal?

      VVD and Joel are still ahead of him, Konate is right there with Joe, but he is young and can improve. He'll be a premium back-up and maybe during the season he can overtake Matip.

      Origi on for Gordon. Honestly would like to see more of Gordon. We know what we have in Origi.

      Woodburn is also not deadwood at all. I like what he brings, shows potential. Maybe we do not need to sign a new longterm midfielder. Somestimes you have the best fruits in your garden, so why look over to the neighbors.

      I really wish Divock was a better footballer.

      Woodburn looks decent but there’s probably no way he gets much time in our midfield unless we get serious injuries.

      This Clarkson kid has a few tricks.

      Ox is working hard, unlucky to not have a goal yet.

      He looks lean, sharp and fit. Those touches for both goals were beautiful. My fav Liverpool player

      Ox absolutely unreal tonight. Finally looks back to full fitness and sharpness. He could be massive for us this season.

      He'll give us that outside the box threat too later in a game when we can't break a team down.

      Impressed with the intensity this evening. I have a feeling Klopp will look at this match and the one yesterday and think no new signings are needed. We might get away without a new midfield option but we surely need a back up attacker.

      Konate is a beast of a player, if he han cut out the odd miss placed pass. Roll on Saturday..

      I know you are not supposed to read into friendlies too much...........

      But f**k me some of those players looked good the last two matches!

      Konate - Has to start alongside VVD, his ability to pick a pass looks up there, like VVD feels like he could be a rolls royce of a player.
      Elliot - Want him featuring a lot of the bench this season.
      Minamino - Seems a player with confidence, a couple of beautiful runs and touches, want to see him more this season.
      Tskmismsikas - Looks like he has gone up a level since last season.

      From the youngsters' excl Elliot:

      Clarkson - So composed on the ball, if Chelsea fans get a hard-on for Gilmore, wait till this lad gets some consistent game time!
      Woodburn - Looks a different player to what we have seen in the past, looks really sharp and confident in himself.
      Beck - I like the balls he has on him, not afraid to be positive and get at players, good showing.

      Not bad, not bad at all!

      Lots of positives to take from this game.

      Ox, man of the match. Was pretty much everywhere. Impressive stuff.
      Bobby: Si Señor! Nothing else needs to be said.
      Taki carrying on his strong preseason form. He'll be an asset this season.
      Tsimikas solid again. Was a bit bullied for their goal, but R. Williams is equally at fault for me.
      Konaté, what a beast that man is (in the best sense).
      Good cameo by Hendo. Great to see him back at Anfield.
      Ben Davies... He does exist!  ;D
      Clarkson impressed me with his passing. Hopefully he'll be involved a little more this year, he seems to have Jürgen's trust.

      Many other youngsters showed glimpses of their talent (Gordon and Beck mostly). Looking forward to seeing them develop.

      Don't know what to make of Woodburn. You can see he has 'something', but I'm afraid it might be too late for him with us. Injuries robbed us of a good little player.

      On the other hand, I'm sorry but it's time for Origi to move on. Don't tarnish your legacy by staying too long, lad.
