You are proposing to loan out all of our youngsters who didn't get a chance this season to break in, buy new players for those positions, so next year when they come back after hopefully a good loan spell they will find no place for them.Players to sell: 9 players
Origi, Sturridge, Markovic, Flanno, Randall, Mignolet, Ward, Bogdan, Can.
Players to loan: 8 players
Kent, Ojo, Wilson, Taiwo, Grujic, Ejaria, Pedro, Allan
Players to keep: 20 players
Firm, Salah, Mane, Solanke, Ings*, Ox*, Lallana*, Hendo*, Milner*, Wij, TAA, Robertson*, Clyne*, Moreno, VVD, Matip, Lovren, Klavan, Gomez*, Karius.
(* -homegrown. Does Gomez qualify yet?)
Players already in/ to be bought - Keita, Fabinho, GK (oblak/allison), 2 wingers/AM (Dembele/pulisic/bailey/Fekir).
That brings us to 25 players with 8 homegrown. For keeping things simple, I Iidn't consider CL player quota for this, as it's pretty different from PL one.
Take Kent and Wilson, 2 very promising wingers. As it is, they have Mane and Salah in front of them , and you are proposing to bring in another 2 wingers. Might as well tell them they have new future in the club.
If these kids sre truely talented and have the ability to be at the level required for an LFC player, you got to give them a place to do so.
