It's hardly a few games though is it? It could be up to around 8 weeks.

Edit: Tournament is 9th Jan till 6th Feb. Likely to miss few before and few after. This season a tournament over those dates could have led to missing as many as 10 games, 7 league ones. That could massively impact on us next year.
Exactly, can't see us going after any more African players as long there is no uniform rule about these tournaments.

People are talking about next year like it's the one off but so far we've only had one summer one. It wouldn't be as bad if the playing positions were spread out, doubt Keitas absence will harm us much in CM for instance. But we play with two very attacking wingers/wide forwards. We only have two senior players that fit that description. They're both missing maybe somewhere between 5 and 10 league games at the same time next season. We can argue back and forth on these threads about what level of cover/competition we can/should look to bring in or if it's fine to go with Shaqiri and Origi again and just be a bit more flexible with our tactics. But one thing I would think most would agree on is that if we bring in that kind of player it's to be available when we can't play either or both of Salah and Mane. Bringing in a third such player likely to miss the same run of games makes no sense.

I doubt we will sign an African footballer unless they are exceptional and not expensive. @Anfield rd Dreamer outlines our need to cover Salah/Mane for AFCON so it makes zero sense to sign someone else that could also be missing.
I think it makes more sense now to dsign Mbappe!

Well I guess he'd do at a pinch like. I mean people may not have realised it yet but I think it would be a good signing you know! I think I've been rather subtle about it though. Don't think anyone has cottoned on that that's my opinion.

Mbappé? You reckon there’s any possible way we can sign him? I’d love the hear how.

So Lazio are having their best season for years, legitimately in a title run, yet within weeks of it starting their fans turned on 2 every presents and their best players from recent seasons. What a scum bag club.
It may be true that the Lazio fanbase is reprehensible in their behavior as supporters. But this also opens up an opportunity to pries away a previously unobtainable talent who could really make an impact in that midfield role for LFC. Milinkovic-Savic would not only make an upgrade/replacement for Lallana but he could cover for Keita during AFCON next year as well. That's a benefit worth considering especially with his upside.

What would you lads say to something radical this summer? I'm picturing a scenario like this:

Salah and Mane sold to Barca/Real/Bayern/Juve/Whoever for a combined intake of around 250mil

We bring in Havertz, Werner, Sancho, and another backup CB after selling Lovren. Werner and Sancho start up top with Bobby, Havertz plies his trade in the middle of the park.

Advantages are we make money on the deal, we get a LOT younger with some of the top young talent in the world, we don't have to worry about AFCON fucking us in Jan, and we don't have to worry about Mane and Salah agitating for the higher salaries they will rightly deserve after winning the league.

Disadvantage is obviously losing two world class players who score ~20 league goals a season each. Also risk upsetting the squad which is currently very settled and very balanced.

I just think you have to be prepared to make moves like this to stay at the top. Ferguson fucked united by selling their best asset in Ronaldo and never properly replacing him, constantly using the tired old "no value in the market" excuse. We are never going to be a more desirable location than we are now. Securing 3 top young talents like this could see us dominate for years to come, but it's not without massive risk.


Apologize if someone's already suggested this before.

Thing is though, this isn't a computer game and Mo and Sadio are not seen as commodities by Klopp , they are people, colleagues and more so friends. This journey we and he has been through with them and all our players means he will always treat them as such and if they leave it will 100% be at their wish and with his blessing. We could't just get that money then buy 4 new guys and expect the same rapport that's been built up over the last few 4 years.
I don't mean that computer game thing as a dig at you by the way, I do see that thrown around alot and if I was playing football manager what you say is probably exactly what I'd do too.

Why change possibly one of the greatest sides in football? Make marginal increases from a position of strength but I'd be keeping our core for as long as they want to be here.

Bold thinking.

Purely on the playing side of it the risk is integrating a new forward line all at once, while also losing guaranteed world class starters. But fortune favours the brave, and in one fell swoop the team would be younger and the trio you named would be at the forefront of writing the next chapter. I would do it. However...

First of all, I'd want to know what Mo and Mane want to do. Are they looking for another challenge? By the summer they would have won everything there is to win with us, and they could conceivably be open to a change. If so, then something big and bold like you mentioned might come into view.

But if Mo and Mane are happy where they are, you don't poke around with that.

If Mo and Mane want to stay we would need evolution, not revolution. At that point I would add Sancho. We need a third top class winger and the age difference between Sancho and Mo/Mane keeps one eye on the future too. But Sancho wouldn't be signed just to wait on the sidelines and bide his time. He can come and make an immediate impact by keeping the overall level high rotating in with Mo/Mane and also covering an AFCON shaped hole next season. He will be a very important player for us right away, and he will see plenty of action.

I'm sorry but no. Add a fourth this summer. Then as and when the others start wanting to move on (inevitable but hopefully few years away) as each of them leaves we replace them. At that point we are still having a settled 3 top class forwards for a front 3 in 433 and adding a fourth each time to see how they settle.

Havertz, Sancho and Werner could all be shite. They play in a pub league and we know nothing about their character.

Sounds like risk for the sake of risk.

All fair statements lads. I’m just envisioning something bold and radical that could happen. I highly doubt those three would be “shite” though, especially not with our top class coaching involved. Their talent is undeniable, but I’d worry about the balance of the team. Will Sancho and Werner chip in defensively as much as Mo and Sadio do? Hard to say.

That's not bold that's nuts, correct me if I'm wrong but don't all those players coming in play in Germany, the country where we have had particular problems with the players we have taken from there, how long would it take to get them up to pave if at all?
This would do my already damaged ticker immense harm.

Evolution not Revolution is the key - plan ahead whenever possible, bring in replacements before they are 100% needed etc...

I can see a Werner or Sancho arriving but not as an immediate replacement - earn your right to take someones role

That front 3 would lineup in a similar manner to our current setup, with Havertz in the Firmino role AND Werner and Sancho on the wings.

Werner --- Havertz --- Sancho

I could envisage a setup like that working well, I just dont think Klopp will want to change so much so fast.

I was watching the highlights of the Dortmund win over Frankfurt and thought of what @ILLOK said about Werner, and by extension the Bundesliga, about the time the players have to finish in attacking areas compared to the PL.

Sancho scored for Dortmund when he had the entirety of the left side of the pitch to himself, ran from just inside the halfway line, cut back behind a challenge in the penalty area (that was nowhere near) and had a relatively easy finish into the near post -keeper predictably dove the wrong way.

It does make it a bit tough to judge these players and how they would adapt to PL football. I'm sure they are all very good and would be fine eventually but how can you say any of Havertz, Werner or Sancho is worth £100m when they are playing in a league with such little comparability defensively?

Is it possible to score to a goal where you are the only player in the opposition's half in the PL? Sure, Salah does it. However, Salah does it in the 94th minute to seal a game - those chances are not there in the 64th minute like they are in Bundesliga.

The league is so poor tactically that I think we have to start thinking of it with a similar cynicism to buying strikers from Holland. It won't always work.

Would looking at their European pedigree be better?

Havertz in (senior) European games has a goal or assist every 156 minutes but all 3 goals and 3 assists he has are in Europa League. Hes played 514 minutes in the Champions League without scoring or assisting. Played against Spurs (cameo), CSKA (cameo), Atletico Madrid all when really young. This season Loko Moscow x1, Juventus x2, Atletico Madrid x2.

Werner has a goal or assist every 110 minutes in Europe. He has a goal or assist every 104 minutes in the Champions League! Besiktas x2, Porto x2 (1g), Monaco x2 (2g), Lyon x2 (1g), Benfica x2 (2g + 1a), Zenit x2. Not all that impressive opposition.

Sancho has scored or assisted once every 150 minutes and has only played Champions League games. Sancho has played Barca x2 (1g), Inter x2 (1a), Slavia Prague x2 (1g+1a), Spur x2, Club Brugge x2, Monaco x1 (1a) and Atletico Madrid x2 (1g). Not bad opposition actually.

I'd say the Bundesliga is like a little pool of brave teams (I don't think it's poor tactically, far from it, but you get more clubs with similar ideas and the result is goals and unpredictable outcomes), fun football and great atmosphere. The league in terms of stadiums, prices and atmosphere is probably the best value for money you can get Europe. So you get a lot of modern stuff over there, organized work, trust in youth, progressive ideas. The league of 18 also when sometimes Bayern (they sometimes struggle in terms of wanting to become even more of a global force, more consistent at it) aren't as dominant is pretty close. You get Schalke one year fighting relegation and they can be in the CL next season. Up and down. That type of changes, except for a few clubs who maybe have a different style, simply struggle when they're promoted or are financially somewhat below the rest. Very interesting because there are not many differences between a lot of teams, that fight for European places brings you new stories almost every season. At times it's not the most interesting title fight if Bayern are on their top level (credit to Dortmund for establishing themselves more since Klopp's era), but for those places a bit below it's arguably the best to follow. Sometimes lacks knockout power, a higher ceiling, I don't know how to describe it in different words. So yeah, at times it can look like a safe bet for basically any type of striker who is at a struggling point in his career and needs a good season or two somewhere. I'd say it's the most open league of the big five. Still, like everywhere, we have to focus primarily on player by player and then look at a wider context.

I do wonder if there's a reason for Klopp not buying there or if it was just a turn of events that led the targets to turn down the move to Liverpool (Goetze, Brandt, Goretzka). Beside these three, Matip (an opportunistic move), Klavan (squad depth) and Karius (a rather cheap gamble that failed to pay off on the pitch), I don't think club were in for some Bundesliga-based player who would be an expensive, first eleven option. And even if they are in for Sancho, they already wanted him when he was at Man City.

Well, I guess you can imagine my train of thought regarding his injuries when I forget one of the most expensive signings Liverpool ever made, not just from Bundesliga... I stand corrected. And I feel even worse for him, if it's possible.

The more I watch Cantwell, the more he looks like a player Rafa would have bought for peanuts ages ago or a player Southampton would have bought under Pochettino and then sold him to Liverpool for extortionate sum of money. I'll be very surprised if he isn't in Premier League next season, I hope Liverpool keep him in their radar. He reminds me of Lallana a lot, covers a lot of ground, does a lot of defending, has pretty nimble feet. Scored against Man City, too!

Frustrating player to watch with the constant falling over but he does protect the ball really well.
