    Yeah but we got a completely different approach now… Do you remember who else was bought in that window… we were all over the place.

    It’s not happening now and that’s the only time in recent times that we have gone for a player at a tournament.

    Check out the names we have been linked with and where they are, they have all been on international duty.

    In fact none of the players we have been linked with have been sold. If that was the case and we were missing out on targets, then I would worry but that’s not the case here.

    It’s just my opinion songman.

    We need better cover for the front 3 with mane out and Shaqiri injured. Klopp doesn’t do quick fixes but I’m
    Concerned about our front 3 and how many games they have played in the last 11 months. They are not going to be fresh.
    Klopp knows much more then me.

    Bingo, I know that mate. I know holding onto our players is the priority but we can’t just stand still. City are improving their squad so are spurs and utd.

    City lost one of their biggest players ever… they need investment way more than we do, they are losing Silva next…

    Ox definitely is capable of covering for the likes of Mane and Salah short term at least, we should know that 🙂

    They may be losing Silva but they havnt lost him. They have plenty of time to replace him now.
    There’s no on equivalence with our current situation.

    And its confirmed, Origi is signing a new long term contract… He would not have done so with out having been promised game-time… Great news!

    As stated previously the most goals Ox ever played in a season for Arsenal is 6.
    He’s had plenty of opportunity with them.
    In a half season with us playing attacking midfield he scored 5.
    His game is about pace, power and driving runs into space. Not what Mané/Salah do and twist and turn finding space against defences that sit deep. It’s why Ox was so good at attacking midfield; his driving runs broke the line and caused panic against opposition.

    Reports have been coming out for the last week that Origi would sign new deal after discussions about his role/playing time.
    We know what he offers.
    Could he be relied upon to step in for the front 3 for say 2/3 months during CL qualification?

    Despite no additions up top (yet) we do have several permutations on offer. Shaq can play right or 10. Bobby can pretty much do anything in mid and up top. Salah can move central (4231). Not too keen on Origi up top on his own (his possession and passing percentages HAVE to improve) but he can play in Mane’s spot. Mane can play right or thru the middle. Ox can also play Mane’s spot (as he did, roughly, for Arsenal often). Brewster unproven as of yet.

    Our African and Brazilian boys have played an awful lot of ball in the last year (remember too it was the damn World Cup too last year) so it’s been pretty much none stop for most of them over the past two years. That’s what I’m concerned about – burn out.

    Out of the front three Mane was our most consistent performer last season as Bobby and Mo had spells of pure knackeredness but continued to be played. We can’t do that again. Origi (as much as his was the savior last season) ain’t at the level of our front three and that’s where we need to add – top quality either in the 7 or 11 positions or the 9.

    In summary. This transfer window sucks. The first few weeks of our season potentially could be shit.

    Im very happy that origi signed a new contract. If he can rediscover his form of 3 seasons when he was just brilliant before that cunt everton defender broke his ankle. I thought he was our best player in that few weeks before that injury.

    Yes, I would love new players but what’s the point of signing new players for the sake of signing new players just so we can marvel at how shiny and new they are? Yeah, I would love Ajax Ziyech but if it doesn’t happen then we have to trust this same manager that didn’t panic buy in his first season and still made the EL final with the same team that Brendan got sacked with.

    Klopp is a ‘water into wine coach’, if he believes he can coach this same team to a PL title then I believe him too – I wish he would sign players from my wishlist but ultimately I believe him. Even though its taken Klopp 4 years to win his first trophy I have seen a lot of Liverpool managers to know that Klopp is a cut above.

    How jealous must other teams be as well that we have a coach that has so much confidence in his coaching ability and doesnt panic buy and tries to make his players better first before considering purchasing outsiders.

    No need to panic about fitness and all that, Klopp has a degree in sports science I bleive and has a WC team who performed expertly since 2015. Klopp has learnt from his mistakes and fine-tuned his tactics to the point where we dont get tired at the end of games or season.

    If I see the front line of Ox – Brewster and Origi lining up at the start of the season then its because Klopp believes in those three and they will probably end up making us eat more humble pie.

    At no point has anyone said we should sign new players for the sake of it.
    This is a deliberate misrepresentation of the arguments put forward.

    I don’t post much. I like reading your thoughts and opinions though guys. I thought I would share mine for once.

    I’m very happy Origi has signed a new deal. In the 5 or 6 games of last season, we saw what he is about when his confidence is high. He can be a massive player for us moving forward. As far as transfers go, I’m not worried. The squad will be/is being thinned, and we will add replacements. I think we will get 1 big signing as well(probably in the front 5). Lots of players now coming back from international tournaments, so I think the action will pick up over the next few weeks. And yes, I do agree with those who say we need to strengthen in certain areas.

    Klopp has not made many(if any) bad signings so far. I love they way he and the whole club conduct business now.

    It’s going to be a cracking season ahead. Can’t bloody wait 🙂

    Ginger, to be honest I see that I could have expressed that clearer lol. To set the record straight, you’re right 99%.9 of users on this forum have reasonable realistic views about our spending strategy. However, within the larger social forums (twitter, Reddit, facebook, RAWK) I constantly stumble on what I perceive as unnecessary fatalism about The Age of House Klopp flopping without new blood! I know we may still yet sign new talent, but I also feel strongly that Jurgen really rates himself good enough to stick with this team! He’s already one of the greatest Liverpool managers if he does retire I want him to win at least one PL trophy!

    Pinezez69 you say “Songman we must sign players and we must not rely on the current squad. We need reinforcements!!”

    So when did I say we should not sign any players, don’t misquote me. Even in my previous post I said that I would like us to sign at least one versatile attacker.

    What I have said quite clearly is that Klopp and his team know far more than any of us fans about who we need to sign to improve our squad. Also no fan knows what is going in the background and who Liverpool is even targetting – and that’s the way I like it, the secrecy and surprise element.

    Instead of panicking, why not be patient and wait until the transfer window closes to see what happens

    Sean, if we are to sign any players, I’ve said it all along that the priority for me would be a versatile top-class attacker to take the burden off our front 3

    Ginger, while I would prefer to use the Ox in lower risk situations, what’s wrong with using him more often if he can do a good job up front?

    But this seems to be turning into a hypothetical debate, as Klopp may never even use him there
