    The Long And Short Of It.

    See you managed to reel one in with this

    Ben Woodburn and Ryan Kent (Liverpool)

    Perhaps we are saving the marquee signings for deadline day so the scum don’t have time to strengthen Wishful thinking, far more likely we’ve spent our transfer fee budget on the defence.

    I don't think Atakayi is ready for the first team yet so unless we play Middleton on the right as an inside forward I don't see the developer our own tbh. I do agree though that we'd have expected a bit better quality wise, I would have been happy enough loaning in Wilson but it wasn't to be sop we just need to hope that Kent will be a step-up from Candeias/Windass on the right wing.

    Wilson was verging on first team inclusion with Liverpool and Solanke was last year which is why these deals would sit better with us than taking a youngster who, although has signed a long term deal last year, has his future at Liverpool a little further down the certainty scale. I actually think Kent will do well but it’s not a signing to get you really excited (saying that people weren’t this excited for wilson or Solanke anyway).

    Any bounce game?

    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about a bounce game between now and next Thursday. Its a long time without a match for a team that looks incredibly rusty. Sadiq and Coulibaly would surely need a game as well before being put into the first team in a competitive game against (presumably) Osijek. That said if Gerrard and Allen are going to focus on getting a striker and a creative midfielder in during this time I would rather we did that.

    Murphy gets a yard ahead of the defender but they usually catch up as Murphy is not that fast. Candeias is the opposite in that he generally can’t beat a man but if he does he’s very fast and can hit the byeline. Young Middleton seems to have both and from some of the stuff I’ve seen with Kent he does too. Getting to the byeline is one thing but end product is what makes the difference (as well as strikers taking up good positions in the box and runners entering the box at the right time). Our crosses from deep (from Tav mainly) have been pretty accurate it’s the times we get a break of the ball at the byeline where the cutbacks aren’t on target or crosses across the face of the goal hit the first defender or go too close to the keeper......or no bugger is trying to get in the end of it like middleton’s first cross on Tuesday.

    Pretty sure this is how it would work. Loan deals have moved on into mini-transfers now with clauses and future fees etc. So it might be his wages that are waived if he plays a certain amount of games or it could be the fee agreed for the loan itself. The fees and wages for Ejaria and Kent are peanuts for Liverpool but to us it’s not therefore it’s an incentive to play him. Liverpool want the players to play, develop and show if they are good enough to remain at Liverpool it’s not about cost cutting or squad depth etc. When you loan an older player it’s more about the selling club trying to offload them (us with Forrester for instance) so therefore there is probably going to be wages paid or a fee regardless of how often they play.

    Middleton on the left and Kent on the right with a proper goal scorer in the middle would offer something very different to the rotating fluid front 3 that at the moment can’t score for shit.

    Obviously Gerrard isn’t that confident of Windass producing the goods as someone like Kent I would imagine will take his place out wide.

    Even easier now since Candeias is playing central midfield.

    Any bounce game?

    It’s a good shout, they did something like this in Spain but not a full 90 mind. The hooded line is spot on. Continue to play underperformers (even if you think you have no other option) and you will breed complacency and it matters not one big that Steven Gerrard is your manager if he continues to reward poor performances with starting place the following game they’ll never up their levels. I was really hoping for Wilson to join as he’d have played in Windass’ role and we’d see whether windass was up for the challenge or throw a hissy fit. With Morelos I’m hoping Sadiq gets the nod (clearly the manager thought it was too much to ask of Rudden). we are severely short of options up top so I can only hope we get a couple of signings in these positions before next Thursday. Solanke and Woodburn would do nicely but Liverpool aren’t in any rush to loan them out.

    Any bounce game?

    Between leg 1 and 2 of the 2nd qualifying and I think we definitely need some game time before leg 1.

    Caught this at half time and was pissing myself. all I see is a Eurovision entry to this song

    *****Official Shkupi vs Rangers thread*****

    People moaned that we just needed to win games and be hard to beat (that’s why some called for allardyce or pulis) and Gerard is doing just that.....building from the back on a fairly limited budget. Loans are going to be where we get the quality in midfield and up top (I hope). We’ve missed out on Wilson but hopefully we can get Solanke and perhaps Woodburn now. We definitely need to be able to drop Morelos and Windass as they will get complacent putting performances in like that and get picked next week.

    Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

    It could be that while Liverpool want to help out Gerrard it’s not going to be for their best young talent since they see the championship as a better quality of football. Still think dealing with the publicity, pressure and expectations that come from playing for us to get him prepared for first team action for Liverpool, would have been of more benefit to Wilson.

    Herrera gone

    Sadly not, he signed a 3 year deal last summer.

    Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

    Can only see reports with no sources that Derby have “come up with the best offer”. Only because I hope we do sign him as I think he’d be a great option for us I’m waiting until something a little more concrete is announced.
  18. NeoGeo7

    Dominic Solanke (Liverpool)

    Defoe and Wilson or Woodburn for me would make a big difference up top but Solanke would still be an improvement from where we are right now. Im a little concerned Gerrard sees central defence as the priority still, unless of course he knows he’s going to get at least 1 or 2 from Liverpool once they decide what they are doing with Solanke and Wilson.

    Bolstered at the Back, Still lacking up Top

    I’m willing to give the guys a good few games before weighing in with the he’s shite line. Both Morelos and windass could have had 5 goals between them tonight but I can write that off as pre-season rustiness. They got into the positions but couldn’t take some bloody good chances which whilst pissing me off no end I can give them some time. Whats clear is we need competition. Not one striker on the bench so Morelos knew he had the whole game and tbh he was lucky with the head clash but once again rising to the bait and would have won a penalty had he not thrown his arms up in the air and taking his feet off the ground as he did. Would love to see Wilson and Solanke in to really give Gerrard options. In saying this if Cardiff offered £5m tomorrow for windass I’d do it for certain but Morelos definitely has ability he just needs to work hard on his finishing.

    Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

    He’s signed a new long term deal with Liverpool now so read into it what you will regarding them loaning or not (sometimes players sign new deals just before going on loan to assure them that they have a future at the club or it could be a case of Klopp wanting to use him in the first team this year)

    I’d be surprised if the starting lineup was any different to last Friday.

    John McGinn (Hibs)

    Fuck signing any mhutant wannabe from that lot. Signing Katic loaning Sadiq and Coullibaly are a sign that we are looking further afield. How many have we signed from this backwater league this summer?
  24. NeoGeo7


    It was 4-3-3. listen to Arfields post match interview and he talks about the rotation with ross and Danny and the guys up front did the same. The thing is if you play a fluid system it can appear like 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 at times but I believe it’s 4-3-3.
