I hope Klopp starts an absolute B-team just to strawberry float with Pep’s head in the Liverpool-City match. Would be hilarious.

I quite like the idea, think they should stick around permanently. Gives the managers a chance to discuss things with players and reorganise.

I agree with you on this one and I like the idea of it too.

Manchester United refused to spend over £50m for Jadon Sancho.

I like the tactical benefits that it can bring.

Do you mean £50m for him now?

Well, they won't get him then. Looks like Liverpool won't be buying anyone either, so that'll be a total spend of under £10m for 3 transfer windows...

I'm a bit worried but I have to trust in Klopp.

I think if he keeps the current squad together then he’ll be fine, but it’s a big if - must be a few players who are thinking of moving on to get regular football, your Divock Origis and whatnot.

In todays climate I've zero worries of anyone leaving. In that regards, for Klopp that's a luxury as he rarely could keep same team together with Dortmund. I expect Nico Williams and Harvey Elliot to feature next season too.

Any chance we’ll get Coutinho back on the cheap?

I wasn’t particularly sad to see him go but I think it’d be a nice boost to have him back if he’s prepared to work and not mind spending time on the bench.

RB is about the only other area where I think we need strengthening, given we don’t really have a backup for Robertson.

Can’t see him leaving this summer. Who can afford him?

I think staying at Dortmund would be the best thing for Sancho.

The Reus-Haland-Sancho front three next season might be enough to overcome Bayern.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Got a few players coming back and a couple from the u23s too.

Wilson, Gruijc and Brewster are coming back from loans and then we have Elliot, Curtis Jones, Williams, Hoever coming through who will get some minutes too.

As far as I can tell it's only Lallana who is anywhere near the first team who is leaving in the summer.

This is going as well as expected.

Play an ultra defensive XI and this is what you get.

Absolutely zero pressing from us.

Sometimes text commentary just doesn't do a goal justice.

Decent stat for Photek to dismiss - since his debut, Bruno Fernandes has been involved in more goals than any other player in the entire league.

Was going to post something similar but you mentioned it first. :lol:

Fernandes is on fire. 8-)
