its a squad game


Yes it is but midfield is where we have the biggest and better squad especially when you compare to the CB and CF positions

I wouldn't expect anything less coming from LFC, because:

a) They don't want to be disrespectful to Bayern / Alacantra whilst they are still playing in the CL to potentially unsettle him.

b) Alert other clubs and potentially get involved in a bidding war.

Thiago Alacantra's transfer won't be made official until after Bayern's participation in the CL has ended, which could be after the final probably the day after, on Monday 24th August.

Liverpool First Team Midfield:

Fabinho
Wijnaldum
Henderson
Milner
Keita
Ox
Shaqiri
Jones
Elliott

Man City First Team Midfield:

Gundogan
De Bruyne
Bernardo Silva
Fernandinho
Mahrez
Foden
Zinchenko
Sterling
Ferran Torres

I'd have to disagree...

There is no disagreement that City has a better midfield, what I wanted to say is that we need a better squad in CB and CF position

I don't know.. put Alcantara in there and there's very little to choose from. Even without him our midfield does exactly what Klopp's system demands. DeBruyne's the only standout player really and Sterling's a forward. Fernandinho's almost done.

I agree all round though, it's an interesting few weeks. Sign Alcantara to add to LB cover and we just need a CB and Forward. Expecting a couple of outgoings to pay for them, Origi and Shaq maybe.

The outgoings really should start with the perennial loanees:-
Grujic, Ojo, Woodburn, Wilson, Awoniyi and Karius. That must be a potential 100m worth of players who are doing nothing for the club other than wasting squad space for other players that can make a difference to us.

These loanees are being Coached differently elsewhere and "if" any of them came back into the fold it would take them time to be reconfigured to how our current tactics/system is and for us to discover if they are worth the effort.

Even if we have to come up with some sort of payment plan to help clubs out, just get them off the books and utilize anything we get in the time being to purchase other players that can make a difference to our team/squad and not somebody else's.
