Brewster is our backup pinez, Origi and Brewster are our main backup for the front three, Origi has done brilliantly so far and he is capable of filling in for Bobby or Mane outwide. Brewster can do the same and cover for Salah out on the right, if another forward comes in we would need to sell Shaqiri to make room as there would not be enough game time for them all.
Perhaps… at the moment though he doing his job… If he wants a move for more football it could happen but I cant see the club trying to sell him… Same goes for Lallana, we are going to need them both and both players do their jobs at training even though they might not make the first team.
Not sure Shaqiri really fits the managers plans. Was injury free for most of the 2nd half of last season and the manager just refused to play him.
Not quite sure where he fits in a 4-3-3.
Doesn’t have the pace to play wide in front 3 and doesnt have the mind to know when to defend in a midfield 3.
Would suit a 4-2-3-1 perhaps but we rarely play it.
Begs the question why we didn’t go in for Pulisic. More expensive, sure, but would fit our side like a glove, Klopp really liked him, he has hit the ground running, and he would undoubtedly have got games and put pressure on others.
I’ve been a fan of Pulisic for a couple of years now (having seen him often in action for the USMNT) but to say he’s hit the ground running is hardly accurate. He’s been used as a sub most the season so far and only hit the headlines since his arrival just recently with his superb hattrick against Burnley. Quality player tho.
He is pinez and he is the best of the lot around the premier league… it serves a great purpose to clear the way for him and a testament to his mentality that he opts to say Bobby is the one he looks up to… 5 tackles against Arsenal, he could take over from Bobby and that no team fit… he might actually he the only one capable of doing so.
also if you went now and bought a striker you would veto any possibility of buying Mbappe in the summer, that’s when he moves and the club will be in the hunt for his signature and I think we have Lebron to thank for that and his new company. Cause even at 215 million he still holds resale value for the next decade or more. I know Klopp also likes the two young brazilians at Real, Rodrygo and Vilnicius… Rodrygo was setting a new record the other day and Klopp has been adamant about getting him involved with any deal Real wants to make with the club.
That interview with Cafu ticked me of today… about Trent moving to another club, why would Trent ever need to move, he is local, lived a cross the training ground, is probably gonna take over the captaincy at one point and is playing at a bigger club than Cafu ever played for. Shut the fuck up merc…
