Wowawiewa

The reds have got no Mané, but we’ll still win the league! :(


Slinky_Panther

Chances we see more of the 4-2-3-1 next year?


Comprehensive-Ice376

Nunez Diaz - Bobby - Salah Thiago - Fabinho Robbo - Virgil - Konate - Trent Alisson Jota, Carvalho, Elliott, Jones, Henderson, Keita, Tsimikas, Matip, Gomez, Ramsay, Milner, Kelleher That’s tasty.


nukhraa

High. The depth chart makes significantly more sense when you line us up in a 4231


bemlikanz

Thought it was a well spreaded news around the world (as I'm Brazilian), but Lucas Leiva wife has confirmed he is signing with his former Brazilian side Grêmio, which is currently in the second division. ​ [Source](https://ge.globo.com/rs/futebol/times/gremio/noticia/2022/06/20/esposa-de-lucas-leiva-comemora-acerto-com-o-gremio-vontade-gigante-de-colaborar.ghtml) (it contains the link to her instagram post as well)


nukhraa

Gremio is where he came from right? I remember because i used to have a pen pal on Orkut who was a gremio fan


bemlikanz

Exactly. Grêmio is one of the most successful teams in Brazil. They were national cup winners and continental champions last decade but were relegated last year. Every now and then Lucas shared some posts mentioning his former club, and even pictures with his whole family on the club’s threads. Douglas Costa was on the roster recently, too.


nukhraa

Interesting. Good luck to him and gremio!


whoaaa_O

Maybe he can be our midfield depth /s


nijuu

Nice! One of my all time fav players 😁 happy he is going home


bemlikanz

unluckeeee


agntkay

So now we got 7 midfielders for 3 spots and 5 attackers +Carvalho for 3 spots. Lighter on attacking depth. 3 outs and 3 in so far, but hope we add a starting quality midfielders or an attacker.


Comprehensive-Ice376

I think Gordon might be in the mix some this season


agntkay

That's a good call out. Optimistically he might play a big role this season, will be exciting to see how he has progressed in the preseason.


NewfieDad12

I know that it’s just fake rumours but I would be so fuckin happy if we signed Barella


VegetableAwkward286

There's little chance of Salah renewing. Liverpool are unwilling to match the wages I expect other clubs would offer. add to that the signing bonus he's expected to have Liverpool's offer is not even close. Which is fine. I guess. whatever, just a bad thought.


nukhraa

>just a bad thought. I'll give you one more. His depth option is Ox. If Salah leaves, we might end up extending ox's contract


redbadger1848

If there was any hope of him staying, it ended after Mane's earnings at BM were reported. Mo will have little issue finding someone to pay him 400k/w, at this point ill be happy just to not have him go to City(it wouldn't shock me NGL).


nijuu

How would fan base react ?


Purple-Ad-1409

Imagine sterling's boos, but about 100x worse lol Atleast we got 50 million for Sterling. I can't see Salah going City though. Maybe Real Madrid now that they didn't get Mbappe


whoaaa_O

Like Torres, but x 10,000 worse. I might actually fall into depression and die from heartbreak. Salah's my favourite player 😭


BurceGern

Raphinha maybe not going to Barca after all. I wouldn’t be surprised to see us linked with him to put pressure on the Mo negotiations


CalledIt987

Isn’t he going Arsenal?


NewfieDad12

He’s wanted by at least 4 of the traditional big six, I’d imagine he would want Barca or Liverpool


BurceGern

Idk. That’s be a good signing for them. I just thought that the club might tease sth to their journos for leverage in the Salah contract


asso19

Why we letting fringe players move on without trying to sign replacements...Like squad depth is looking thin, especially for a season where there will be mant games


TheLimeyLemmon

Who are you supposed to replace fringe players with on the market? Taki started one league game for us last season, it's why he's moving on. You might as well call up from the academy if involvement in the latter half of the season is that minimal.


NGog_Fan

Gonna sign Lewandoski to come lead our league cup defence charge. Maybe pick up Mbappe as well to help out with the FA Cup and come of the bench against the Ev if we ever need someone to play the Origi role


NGog_Fan

Back the youth. Klopp and others at the club have been pretty vocal about wanting to develop the academy and only way we do that is if we actually give academy kids a chance to play


nijuu

Be great if we actually blooded a few young forwards in league games and see how they all do. When last time a genuine academy product (a forward that is) coming through had few minutes in a league game ? (Gordon came from Derby )


MartinPerrott

Can't we just loan out academy players like we just did with Bradley? Would much prefer that and then keep fringe players like taki and origi to actually go deep into cups.


NGog_Fan

How many academy players do you know who we've loaned out and they've actually come back and made a decent career at Liverpool?


MartinPerrott

Our academy so rarely produces top quality talent anyway - sometimes regular minutes can be more beneficial than playing the odd cup game and training with the first team. Like Elliot had with Blackburn.


NGog_Fan

> Our academy so rarely produces top quality talent anyway The point is to try and change that >sometimes regular minutes can be more beneficial than playing the odd cup game and training with the first team People always say this but when has this ever been the case? How many academy players do you know that got regular minutes elsewhere and then made a career with us? >Like Elliot had with Blackburn. Calling Elliot an academy player is a real stretch anyway. He's Fulham academy. Trent and Curtis are the only academy players we have who've cemented themselves within the first team and both have never been out on loan.


asso19

>actually give academy kids a chance to play They have been,


NGog_Fan

Good, let's do it more


thanatos1892

Can't be only one who thinks we could have gotten more for Mane and Taki. Ik Mane wanted to leave but both transfers were lower than our valuation


arpigyi

Taki was signed for £7 million, I reckon £15 million to Monaco is a fair amount. As for Mane his contract is expiring, his age and the desire to play for Bayern mean we couldn't ask for much of a fee. Lose him for £35 million or 0 million?


mrcanadianbeef1

Plus it seemed like his heart was set on Bayern, not much chance of a bidding war


cornontheklopp

‘twas the saddest outgoings window ever


CJVCarr

Getting loads of business done this window. Hopefully Klopp's plan goes to...plan.


Gatuss0

Squad depth getting weaker 😬


LooseCannon5

Diaz and Salah are the only wingers left at the club. Jota at least can play well from the left and Nunez too from what I have read. Elliots future seems in midfield and Carvalho seems more central too Minaminos ability to put a shift in from either wing will be missed


bemlikanz

Yeah, I can see us playing TAA as a more advanced *winger* when Salah is out


NGog_Fan

>Diaz and Salah are the only wingers left at the club Jota is literally a winger >Minaminos ability to put a shift in from either wing will be missed Minamino has 5 league appearances where he played 10 or more minutes. In only 2 of those did he play 30 or more (these two also happened to be the only 2 times he played on the wing, both times the right wing). Not sure how many of those I'd consider as "shifts that he put in" and it's doubtful that they'll be some great loss.


CalledIt987

Jota is not a winger he’s an inside forward at best.


nijuu

We play with inside forwards not wingers. Neither Mane or Salah are traditional wingers . Right?


arpigyi

Agree, Takk did quite okay at the right wing too


nijuu

Be interesting which young guys takes up his minutes when needed.


arpigyi

Shouldn't we cash in on Salah now if he is not signing the contact? Next season, Salah will go for free, and we might not afford his replacement and Jude at the same transfer? I reckon we go for Saka or Raphinha.


NGog_Fan

How do you plan on selling a player who has literally said he is playing for us next season in a live press conference?


flynny66

Raphinha is leaving Leeds this summer


arpigyi

It seems he is linked to Arsenal. I'm susprised that Arsenal are going for him despite having Saka in the same position. Could it mean Saka is not signing a new contract and Arsenal is buying for a replacement since Raphinha is avalaible?


TheLimeyLemmon

This might be a daft take, but if Nunez becomes the key for us to break down low blocks... frankly he's worth two players.


Chouffleur

Koncheski and who else?


NGog_Fan

If he finishes even half the clear chances we missed last season we're set


arpigyi

Against low-block teams we put in many crosses, but fail to benefit from it mostly. With his height, Nunez could give us an edge in the aerial threat. Now, we'll no longer be limited in offense


Nidavil

I hope he does but…. How would he be that player ? I thought he was at his best playing counter attacking football and struggled at the games against low blocks in Portugal.


Purple-Ad-1409

Just having a physical number 9 in the box will help us. Literally how we used to bring on Origi against defensive teams (like Everton etc) and he would make a difference, it would be the same but with (hopefully) a much better player


NGog_Fan

Nunez is an pretty good finisher from what I've seen. Trent, Robbo, Mo and Thiago are all elite creators.


JokeSalty

I get that Jose Enrique is a big fan of us but am I the only one who’s kinda getting annoyed by how much he tweets about us and rival teams. He tweets like one of them toxic football twitter accounts


whoaaa_O

If I was rich and had nothing better to do but support my football team, we'd all be exactly the same


cornontheklopp

Love the guy, and we’re all Jose Enrique in a way but I unfollowed him. Content was getting a little much


Chouffleur

Still the most successful keeper we ever signed! (Small sample size warning).


Asad_OG

Taki fast approaching a move to Monaco, could all be wrapped up soon


AzorAhaiReturned

Feeling a bit unreasonably bitter about Mane's move which is starting to annoy me because I shouldn't be. Maybe it's the price, the pre-CL final comments or maybe just sadness but it's definitely left a bit of a bitter taste.


NewfieDad12

A part of me feels that the relationship has come to a natural end, it’s time to start the shift to our next front three, although Bobby was the obvious first sale, harder to realise his value though as he is similar to a custom made sword for Klopp


risingstar3110

Look at the positive side. We will always remember Sadio to be part of our winning and dominating front 3. And don't have to see him downgrading to squad players, with Diaz and Nunez surely will slowly cement their stay in Sadio position I am sad that it ends. Of course. But without being able to turn back the time, this is the best time for him to leave


TheLimeyLemmon

It never feels good to see a player like Sadio go. It's probably mixed in with missing out on the league/CL. It's just not the note we wanted to finish on with him.


Chouffleur

The problem is that we emphasize character now. So everyone we lose is a great guy . Even the less successful players.


pingu2009

It sure would suck if nuñez ended up being so amazing that we wouldn't be able to afford his inevitably unreasonable wage demands, then losing him for free. It would suck even more if he wasn't good at all though


arpigyi

Chill mate, one day at a time. He is with us for Six Years. It would indeed be great for us, if he turns into a world class player. Coutinho left and we did just fine. Don't worry about things we can't forsee or control mate, instead focus what we can. YNWA🎈🎈


TheLimeyLemmon

Yeah it would suck, because the last time we brought in an amazing goalscorer who'd eventually have huge demands, we won fucking everything.


Jaja6996

Well it’s going to be at least 6 years before that happens


pingu2009

Just have to hope he lives up to the price tag within that time at least. He'll need to get used to breaking through packed boxes for sure


Craft-Superb

Won’t have to worry about that until 2027 but yes we can sign and create world class players but forget about keeping them because of our precious “wage structure”


bufed

Kept the team together quite well in the last few years. Mane is the first big one leaving since Coutinho I think?


Craft-Superb

If Thiago and Fab didnt pass their fitness tests imagine that midfield we would’ve had to start vs Madrid in a CL final. Either depending on a 36 year old or a 19 year old and Keita. We definitely need more quality options in that department


asso19

Lool Exactly. And these guys want to wait until next next summer for a midfielder. Liverpool need two midfielders


NGog_Fan

You could literally say this for any club. Like, what if Modric and Casemerio had been out for the final for Madrid. They would have to depend on a 19 year old Camavinga and one of Isco or Ceballos. What if City made the final and De Bruyne and Rodri were injured. They would have to depend on 37 year old Fernandinho and 31 year old Gundogan


GTACOD

Your argument kind of falls apart when the names you bring up are noticeably better then the players we'd have in the same situation.


NGog_Fan

Just because you personally don't rate our depth doesn't mean we don't have any depth


ABAZABA20

Camavinga is literally better than most of our backup midfield


NGog_Fan

The fact that you personally don't rate our depth doesn't mean that it doesn't exist


LooseCannon5

And who have each club signed for their midfield this summer to address their depth issues?


NGog_Fan

Well Man City lost a player in Fernandinho and did not sign any midfielder while Real Madrid did sign a midfielder but also lost a midfielder in Isco. On the other hand we have not lost any midfielders but did sign one in Carvalho. Therefore it's fair to say that so far we've been far more proactive in the market when it comes to midfielders.


LooseCannon5

Tchouamemi vs Carvalho? Really?


NGog_Fan

1. You not liking how we addressed our "depth issues" does not mean we did not address those "issues". If you're not happy with it, that's your problem, deal with it yourself instead of blaming the club. 2. They lost a player who they had to replace, we did not.


LooseCannon5

You do realise this is a discussion forum? Love to hear your thoughts on Carvalho anchoring our midfield as a 6


Chouffleur

My biggest fear is a mononucleosis epidemic and James McConnell starting. /S So yeah, I'm happy with our team.


NGog_Fan

> You do realise this is a discussion forum? Yes a discussion forum, not a tantrum forum. >Love to hear your thoughts on Carvalho anchoring our midfield as a 6 That's what we have Hendo and Fabinho in case you forgot.


Craft-Superb

Except there was a strong possibility of that happening to us. Wasn’t a crazy hypothetical. Also all those players you named are better depth options than Milner, Keita, Elliot. Like Gundogan or Camavinga >>>> Elliot or Milner


ADogNamedWhiskey

*Most assists in a UCL campaign, Camavinga will never sing that.*


NGog_Fan

> Except there was a strong possibility of that happening to us But it didn't so it's irrelevant


Craft-Superb

But the fact it could’ve and was very close to happening is the concerning part I’m not sure how you can’t see that. Yes we got lucky this time but who’s to say we will next time without a contingency plan in place. Just because something didn’t happen this time doesn’t mean we don’t plan for it in the future. It’s a logical fallacy. “Oh I didn’t drown this time guess I never have to wear a life jacket”


NGog_Fan

But it can happen to fucking anyone. Injuries happen in football. Get over it. And who's to say we don't have a contingency plan. Keita and Milner and Jones and Elliot and Ox and even Firmino in a 4231 are the contingency plan. If you don't personally like the contingency plan that's your problem, not Liverpool FC's problem.


BriarcliffInmate

Just seen the lad Arsenal have signed. Bloody hell, he's skinny. Unless he has a major body transformation fairly soon, I can't see how he's going to compete physically. Maybe he's a long-term option, but I get Iago Aspas vibes.


JokeSalty

Tbf look at David Silva yet he is one of the prems greatest midfielders. Liga Nos watchers have said he’s the best young talent in the league so it’ll be interesting to see how he develops


BriarcliffInmate

If he was as good as people say, other big clubs would've been after him.


JokeSalty

Both us and spurs were interested in him but we obviously chose not to pursue him because we’re not going for a midfielder this summer


BriarcliffInmate

I don't think there was any true interest in him


kidkaze

He did alright alright against us if I remember correctly, even assisted a goal in the 5-1 tonking we gave them


Liverlakefc

Lol Lukaku getting loaned to inter


BriarcliffInmate

It was such a weird transfer. Everyone (well, pundits) was raving about it last summer, and I just thought it was stupid. A 29 year old for that kind of money, on those wages, who was quite notable in having a difficult time last time he was here? It just seemed stupid. Then I saw him playing and it was confirmed. He looked like an ex-pro who'd just come out of retirement for Soccer Aid.


Purple-Ad-1409

He started very well tbh and looked like he was going to be the missing piece for Chelsea's title challenge. I still remember everyone hyping up the Lukaku vs VVD match up when we played them early in the season as if he was prime Ronaldo lol


Ndubskun

In one weeks time I’m going to type out a bland “Mane is so classy” comment you’ve all read a 1000 times and then post a screenshot of the comment. Might throw in a picture of him idk. I’ll expect at least 1.5K karma so get ready.

Nextyearstitlewinner

When the Chelsea takeover happened the noise of their club was that they were trying to replicate what we’ve done, but their targets seem to be aging players, and they seem to be asking tuchel for targets rather than having a team for transfers like we do. I don’t see this working for them. Which is great news obviously.


Jaja6996

I mean when we first started it we wasn’t having much success it’s going to take them time to get the right people in to have a successful team like we do.


Nextyearstitlewinner

Right but we also weren’t being linked with 30 year olds


Jaja6996

We might not have signed older players but we still made some terrible decisions


vadapaav

>some terrible decisions Some?


Nextyearstitlewinner

Yeah? Like what? I genuinely can’t think of a terrible decision we’ve made since klopp came in. Keita could be considered a bad one. I guess maybe Karius, but he was 4.5 mil as a help out to mignonette to get us cl football which we got.


yourcousinfromboston

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but can we just stop with Sadio posts? Club legend, love the guy, but it's official, he doesn't play here anymore. He left with out a transfer saga, awesome, we dont need a bunch of posts about it. He's done great thing for his home village, we've known this for years. We don't need a bunch of posts about it. Again, he's a legend and we should always remember him, but he's gone, we dont need a million posts. I'm gonna be real bitter all season if we try and post every goal he scores.


WorthPlease

Also the posts on the main sub about his philanthropy that he did way before he moved. And then another post about how he's good because he scored a lot of UCL goals. We know, we were there. We've been in the final 3 of the last four years. This isn't something new. If you have even a passing interest in European football you know this.


Sho0ter_Mc6avin

Buckle up, bucko


Nextyearstitlewinner

I think you’re overreacting. It’s the summer and there’s nothing else to talk about. He also just left, and he’s probably a borderline Liverpool legend so there’s gonna be talk about it. If we signed Bellingham this week, no one would be talking about mane at all.


nukhraa

I agree, but with the exception of his social work. I feel that deserves recognition


spillbreak

There's a lot of people that only became fans in the last 3-4 years and haven't experienced a star player leaving before. It's getting to be really fucking annoying.


whoaaa_O

How many players in the last 10 years that have left have been instrumental in winning titles? Plenty of players have left us in fairly recent years, but none come close to the contributions of Mane.


spillbreak

Torres was more important to the team at that point than Mané is now when he left. (It turned out shit, but we didn't know that was going to happen.) Suárez WAS the team when he left. Wijnaldum was extremely important to our side when he left, might not have been as popular, but if you say he wasn't important, I can't help you.


whoaaa_O

Torres and Suarez didn't win us titles and won't be remembered as fondly as Mane or Gini.


Purple-Ad-1409

Ehhhh I've been supporting Liverpool for a while and I don't agree with u about it being the new fans I think theres a few reasons why ppl are sad about Mane leaving 1) He was the first player signed by Klopp that truly helped turn the club around 2) He's been an important part of the most successful period of the club for for the last 20+ years 3) He's part of the front 3 that have given us so many special moments 4) Unlike torres and Suarez, he's never put in transfer requests or been a problematic player for the team I don't see anything wrong with the Mane posts tbh


spillbreak

I'm not meaning that I don't think people can't be sad that he's leaving. I'd rather he stayed too! But looking at this sub recently you'd think the lad had died. It's a little much.

MyNewAccount77

And something that's never going to happen.


rztzzz

Unpopular opinion: Months ago I saw someone post in a match thread that they were concerned Mane isn’t happy at at Liverpool because he wasn’t smiling when scoring and didn’t seem as happy as before. It was met with tons of comments saying “don’t be ridiculous” - “that’s just mane” - “ffs people find anything to criticize about” etc etc But it probably had some truth to it. I think we are an always-be-positive bunch to a fault, sometimes when there is smoke there is fire and acknowledging possibilities of negative outcomes is fine.


spillbreak

You can be happy enough where you are and still change jobs. Honestly the pitch is a place you dont usually bring the outside world to, I think we read too much into everything.


rztzzz

And I’m saying, in this case it seemed very valid to read into it. He smiled way less this past season, and requested a transfer in the summer.


spillbreak

I honestly don't think he did smile way less but I can't say I was counting.

RyanIsKickAss

https://twitter.com/DoctorMUFC/status/1538998225436295168?t=AuWMD8JXxIEVD2f0ntC-kw&s=19 Lmao United rejected again. Eriksen would rather stay with Brentford or go be a squad player with Spurs than play for United


KoedKevin

I think it comes down more to the fact that United isn't going to sit Bruno on the bench to get plating time for Eriksen. Tottenham is a great choice for him and he would be that creative attacking mid which would allow Kane to move back up the field and get more goals.


asso19

I find it amusing that a club that entered 4 final seasons will sit and wait for a potential player to become available season. lol


MyNewAccount77

Why's it amusing? It's exactly what we've done in the past and will continue to do in the future.


asso19

> It's exactly what we've done in the past and will continue to do in the future. How so? VVD was only player I know theyve waited for. We shouldnt be waiting We should move for other players. Theres no time to be wasting. So much can change in a year


MyNewAccount77

> We shouldnt be waiting We should move for other players. The club clearly wants to sign a Midfielder that's an upgrade on our current starting options, so given the club has obviously decided the options behind Tchouameni aren't good enough, yes we should and no we shouldn't. Signing players that we want and that are best suited to what we required from them is what's turned the club back into the behemoth that it should be, not signing any random players just because they're available. I also don't understand how there's a sentiment from a section of this fanbase that the players that got Liverpool closer to a quadruple than any side ever and set a new club record for goals scored in a season at 147, have somehow turned to shit in the roughly three weeks since the last season ended.


spillbreak

Waited for Keita, waited for Diaz until we couldn't any longer also, the plan was summer but hand was forced. Waited too long for Sancho also. Its a strategy you can do when your team is already as good as ours is. Buying the best or hottest names all the time doesn't work, we've a few amusing examples below us


ADogNamedWhiskey

Famously waited to sign a CB (Konate), too, opting to enter a season with only 3 senior CBs. What followed is an example of the one time we signed a stopgap in the form of Ben Davies and Kabak...midseason... for the extremely limited purpose of just fielding a team with CBs in it. Both of whom were quickly out of the 1st team again when Konate was signed. Wild how people cannot see the tenants Klopp, recruitment, and FSG work under to this day. It's Virgil or the next Virgil (Konate), no bargain brand Virgils. It's Mane or the next Mane (Diaz) no bargain brand Manes. It's Firmino or the next Firmino (Nunez), no bargain brand Firminos.


spillbreak

Fuck I forgot about Konate, most obvious example of the lot. Agree entirely.

asso19

Liverpool want a player that push current players to bench. They want a proper starter quality.


Rottedhead

In general terms, we are completely stacked with midfielders. Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago, Keita, Milner, Ox, Jones, Elliot, Carvalho. We for sure have more quantity than quality right now, but we don't need a loan, we need a permanent new CM and this transfer window seems to not offer what Klopp needs. Also next summer we are probably letting Milner and Ox go, probably Jones and Elliot can have succesful loans to gain experience and that would be the moment to buy Bellingham


BurceGern

We don't really take players on loan as a club. AFAIK we had Kabak, before that it was Caulker in 2016 and Sahin, Aly and Moses under Brendan. None of those went well (barring maybe Kabak but even then we didn't exercise a cheap buy option) and I'd speculate that FSG aren't keen on the idea. We'd rather have no deadwood to sell and keep the squad smaller than have a bloated one. It seems a decision based on philosophy over short-term practicality


TheLimeyLemmon

Getting a midfielder on loan when they're most likely fighting for a spot on the bench doesn't make much sense. Our loan of Kabak at CB was also quite a miss. Don't think we're into loans unless we have some interest in signing later.


fredczar

Please excuse me as I’m feeling deeply bitter. Honestly I’m hope the mane news can quickly just be official. Im done with the whole milking of this mane saga. Im also waiting to see if he would address us officially and thank the club for the time. I have my reservation. Again excuse me for leaving such a bitter comment. I feel like a broken ex.


spillbreak

Players have left before and will leave again. Torres left, Suárez left, Coutinho left. We're still doing alright.


KoedKevin

>Torres left, Suárez left, Coutinho left. We're still doing alright. Torres was the canary in the coal mine. He saw that Liverpool was dropping off and wanted out. It took years to turn things around from that point.


spillbreak

It was a low ebb for sure. Torres leaving was a massive blow to the club, Mané leaves us after 6 yrs of great service and in a better place than we were at the start of those years.

ADogNamedWhiskey

What part of it is hogwash, or doesn't make sense, exactly? Really the only thing that is speculative is whether or not the club are worried Bellingham will demand too much next summer. Everything else is pretty much common knowledge (e.g. Haaland's and Nunez's wages, interest in Aurélien Tchouaméni but for his wages, etc.).


MyNewAccount77

Decided to use this transfer season to flair up with a true Liverpool legend. Local lad, born a blue, got his head straight and became a red. Played for us for years quietly with minimum fuss. Left quietly when his time was up. Won the greatest ever final in football history on one leg. And now is the best pundit on TV. Jamie Carragher. You're a Liverpool legend. >! Shouldn't have spat on that little girl though!<


samcotts

I wish I could experience Gerrard's time at the club again. It was probably around 2004 when I started watching Liverpool play week in week out and Gerrard had already established himself as a top player. For the next decade, he was the face of the club, and it was so weird when he left - this is going to sound crap, but I almost had to relearn to support the club again, like remind myself that I was supporting Liverpool and not Steven Gerrard's Liverpool. I'd never properly known Liverpool without Gerrard and it was strange not to have that constant. The guy who would save the day when we were in trouble. The guy who, no matter how shit we were, gave me belief we could win because we had Stevie G. Because I didn't have a time before he was with us to compare to, I don't think I ever registered how good he actually was. I wish I could re-experience Gerrard at the club again now I'm older and wiser (questionable) and truly take in how he was as a player, and not just as this legendary heroic figure who'd save our skin time and time again.

Honestly, a lot of Gerrards time at Liverpool wasnt a great time to be a fan aside from watching a legend play. We nearly went out of business, only infrequently challenged for honours and had some real shite wear the shirt. Then there's the Hodgson dark age, 35m on Andy Carroll. Gerrard was incredible but as a supporter, the Klopp years have been infinitely more enjoyable. There's not a lot I wouldnt sacrifice to have a 23/24 year old Gerrard in this team though. (Which now I read again, might have been what you meant).

For sure. I loved most of the Rafa years though, especially those epic Champions League runs. In fact some of the CL ties from that era are still some of my favourite memories as a fan. But we're really spoiled under Klopp. I suppose you could look at Trent as the closest comparison of today. Hopefully he continues to develop well into his 20's like Gerrard did. Already a fantastic player.

The Rafa years were great for sure, we did play some fucking awful football sometimes under him but we had those wild European games and, of course, the best CL final of all time. Benitez's team without Torres and Gerrard was fucking miserable to watch at times though! :'D

Imagine working for a club like Spurs or Chelsea and legitimately suggesting that your club signs Richarlison...


nukhraa

Chelsea i can understand. Shitty club, desparate enough from years of inconsistent no 9s to pay this moron. What's Spurs' excuse? They of all clubs know what a good striker looks like - Kane, Defoe, Crouch, Keane, even kanoute wasn't half bad - all part of their history. Unforgivable for them to sign a underwhelming halfwit like richarlison


encore_hikes

I’ve always found it difficult to afford jerseys with all the other shit I need to spend on… but I was able to snag a Mane jersey from someone for like $40 and it gets in today. Gonna miss Sadio but so pumped for this top.


BurceGern

I love your positive attitude. Enjoy it!

I'm not convinced Jude Bellingham would sign for us.


spillbreak

He'll choose money or the opportunity to become a legend (and still dumb high money tbh). If he chooses money, he's not the right guy for this club anyway.


macNy

He won't, the oil clubs will offer him 250-300k weekly pay


BurceGern

Which is why we need to lean on the Gerrard angle for Jude. He's a lot of people's favourite players, including our own Ox and Jude.


arisefromtheashes

still hits me that we didn't score a single goal in 3 different finals


whoaaa_O

We played against top teams with quality players sitting in a low block. They played to stop us, not to attack us.


InfamousJackfruit672

I try to focus more on the fact we managed to go to three finals and take the league to the final day.


Jaja6996

It’s not even like we didn’t create enough chances in those games either we just couldn’t finish it’s why it’s nice to see us get a 9 in Nunez


MartinPerrott

Nor win a game vs the rest of the top 4. Baffling really.


cavejohnsonlemons

Didn't lose any either which makes it even weirder.


NewBromance

Also even though Tottenham took two draws of us, didn't they also beat Man City home and away? It was a weird year in the "top 6 mini table"


macNy

Indeed they did, they also lost to United lol


R3dbeardLFC

We would never.
