Liverpool FC: 20 for 20-21

Recommended Posts

First 10 fixtures are pretty brutal. Not sure I like starting w/ Leeds, which is a potential banana peel. Chelsea have a bunch of new players to fit into their squad, so I guess getting them early isn't a bad thing, but then Arsenal, Bitters away, City away, and Leicester makes for a pretty tough first quarter of the season.

Don't know when the CL/FAC games ar, but on the surface I like it.

Sept - promoted team, two good teams, but breaking in new players

Oct - Sheffield/everton, but overall pretty good

Nov - We have to play City sometime, Leicester will be good, but only three games.  

Dec/Jan - pretty tame over the holiday period(12/26-1/2), not terrible

Feb - Playing City/Leicester back to back again lol? everton/Sheffield make it congested

Mar - sparse, but Wolves/Chelse

April - overall decent

May- have manu, but the last four look tasty at the moment.

We'll have the target on our backs for sure. It's all going to be tough. I'm curious if there will be fans at Anfield for any of those early games.

Tough start but like mentioned best to get Chelsea before they get new guys all on same page.

It looks worse on paper than it is...arsenal,chelsea,toffees,city in first 8 games but it's better than playing them all after they get a few games to gel

We'll be working Pulisic back, too. Might have a new keeper.

Ironically it's kind of better for us to see you early. We might be dropping some early games anyway.

So we are all in agreement then......

Ox injured his knee again and will miss the rest of preseason and possibly some of the regular season. Sigh.

If Gini leaves, we are screwed.

Doubt the club would let him leave this season. I'm guessing we'd rather lose him on a free next year than sell him for what, £15M?, this year. Even if we get Thiago we would still keep Gini, I think. Klopp slowly beds in his players and in this era where it takes upwards of 95+ points to win the league, you simply can't afford a slow start.

Gini is worth way more than £15m. He started 35 of 38 league games for a record setting EPL team. Also ruins people when he plays for his national team.

Makes sense to keep Gini and bring in another midfielder

He's worth more to us, absolutely. But just like Thiago is worth way more than £30M, his value takes a huge hit with just a year left on his contract.

Bobby nets one early. New kits look pretty good. The camera angle on this match is no bueno.

Keita nets one. 2-0 now. Ready for this half to be over and for Klopp to turn over the roster. Pitch has already taken out two Stuttgart players.

Brewster gets one. It's going to be aggravating if we loan him out again.

Nice to have such a healthy squad right now. Klopp’s starting 11 was a message for 19-20 that we’re ready to go. Seems like such a short summer break but with no national team games it was probably the longest summer break a lot of these guys have had in years.

Pretty sure Hendo, Matip and Ox are all not healthy

Kid got his home jersey in the mail Saturday.  Nice looking and good feel, thought they looked good on the pitch Saturday.  Got the lesser expensive one, thought we'd lose the stuck on badge/etc. on the more expensive one and glad we did.  Still pretty pricey.

Bad giveaway by Fabinho leads to a Salzburg early goal. Supporters in the stands, albeit not many.

Can watch but no sound because the kid is in school right beneath the TV.  Mom already out the kibosh on that.  Not that sharp early on.

ouch, how soon does Trent get back?  My first look seems like VVD has a couple of questions to answer.  If we're looking at him and VVD, I'm ok with that.

Alisson bounced it off his head into the goal. Yeah, not the best start. Salzburg are all over us.

Echo saying it was Gomez with the bad pass in the leadup.  Didn't see that in the replay they showed

Rhian goes top shelf to get a goal. Seriously, do not loan him out again.

It's worth our starting D giving up two goals to see Brewster get two nice goals and making a statement.  

Make your mark Rhian!

3 goals in 2 games so far. Let's see if he can keep it up against Arsenal.

The question with Brewster is whether or not he can contribute enough goals to justify his inclusion in the team, since he does little else besides finish. I realize that's a little harsh, and obviously goals win you points, but Klopp is so demanding of his players' overall contribution; I could see him going out on loan again, even though he's done about as much as someone can to prove his worth.

But how can he learn what Klopp demands in the Championship?

All Aguero does is score goals and he’s one of the top 15 players in EPL history. 

So did Alan Shearer and I'm skeptical Klopp would've played him in his side.

I'm not at all against keeping Brewster around and I hope he scores goals for fun. I just could see the reasoning behind loaning him out again, especially if he's not seeing the field much.

Also –hopefully Brewster's scoring record at Anfield is better than Aguero's!

I'd like to keep him around and see how he does off the bench, especially with domestic cup work. If he's not contributing, loan him out at midseason. A good goal scoring option off the bench would be just fine for me.

Right now, what else does Origi/Shaqiri offer?  If we could replace Origi with Brewster and get some transfer money, that's a win IMO.
