      Head says score draw but slightly fancy our chances now with Nkunku out injured. I would definitely have Mac as the holder as he has the discipline and tactical nous to do the job. It really hits home when you start to choose who you'd have in the middle that you don't really have any choice but to pick Curtis and Dom as the other two.

      I feel starting Jones in number 6 just makes it a case of outscoring them before we even start... It's so hard to make a starting 11 without a natural 6, maybe a back three with Trent filling in the 6 role?

      What happened with Trent being a new midfielder?

      He play in possession beside Mac Allister as the two midfielders ahead of the back 3. Just as he did in the last preseason game.

      He did not play midfield, he just cut inside when possible and against lesser teams.

      Not watched any of pre season the score lines suggest we are in for more basket ball style football that lends itself to winning nothing.

      If we start shipping in goals like last season then we can forget it. On paper it's hard to see how the team can function for a full season if this is to be the final squad.

      It looks like a team devoid of protection to the defence.

      And that's before the inevitable raft of injuries come in!

      The weakest squad of players we've had since the first few years of Jürgen before he built a formidable squad. We are now officially back to scrapping for top 4 from the first game of the season. 

      Let's hope we can at least pull that off. We would be punching if we did.

      I can just see this huge gap down our right flank getting battered. i wonder if Jürgen has some secret tactic up his sleeve just waiting for this game. Hopefully Mo is going to be on fire with our other strikers.
      Not long now any kind of win regardless of performance is key.

      I think Mudryk plays a big part with his pace and trickery. Our right side will be exposed and we'll have no ball winning midfielder to make matter worse. Let's hope for a win but would take a draw with no 6 available

      I do like that TBH. As much as love Robbo with Trent moving into midfield Robbo still trys to get forward which leaves us open to the counter.

                                     Macca
                      Gakpo.                 Dom
      Salah.                   Diogo.                  Diaz
      Trent will move into midfield alongside Macca.

      I want Dom and Mac Allister as twin #8s. I know Mac can play #6 and Gakpo can drop back to #8, but I think we're strongest with the two new signings at #8. We'll probably have Curtis play #6 but I don't expect that is the long-term plan.

      Also, was Nunez missing from the training video the club put out today?

      Right. Thanks.

      Is Bradley's injury one of these long-term stress injuries like other young players (Bajcetic, Kaide Gordon and others) have gotten?

      If we grasp Caicedo from under their noses, this will be more spicy. We need to get a good start.

      As we type Caicedo having his medical, obviously too early to slot him in, so I’d go with this Vs those Chavvy plastic non-entity’s….


                             Alisson
             Trent  Konate   Virgil  Robbo
                            Macca
                 Gakpo            Szloboslai
           Salah.          Jota.         Diaz



      Difficult to pick a starting X1 for us, what’s it going to be like for Jürgen, especially when Moises joins the party, glad I don’t have that particular migraine to deal with, anyhoo, I think we go and make a statement at the bridge, I didn’t see much of the match at Deep Dale but what I did see I was impressed with the quick passing inter play and in particular Diaz, he looks on fire already,

      Uber f***in excited, let’s get this show on the road, F**k City, F**k Arse, F**k the plastics, we’re the real deal this season, if you thought Klopp Pt 1 was exceptional wait and see what he has built this time around,

      Make absolutely no mistake we will be right in the mix next May, and we don’t bottle out, Pep will be worried, absolutely worried cos he knows we are the only side capable of matching his fraudsters!!
