papers need to sell mah. Pool flushed with cash = links with every wantaway forward around EPL - Mayhez, Sanchez you name it, you have it.
Echo has already played down Mayhez. Think Echo is usually reliable. Sanchez - not even mentioned at all.
Klopp would only buy someone if he really likes him. He is patient but persistent. so, I suspect Klopp wont buy another forward. I will be happy if he buys a GK to be honest.
The forward line still boasts the likes of Mane, Firmino, Salah and ox. Solanke needs a breakthru goal and I see him as a future no. 9 for pool. Sturridge likely to be sold but still around.
In midfield, Coutinho's no.10 position is refillable by Ox or Lallana. No issues either.
So, is there really a need to splash the cash now? Pool will be the chop carrot of the window if he goes out to buy. It may be wiser to save it for another day or if Klopp can land Lemar type of players.. maybe he will spend then.
As for the playmaker MF role, i'm not sure that Ox is ready for it yet leh. He longs to play there, but never got the chance at arsenal, so he has no experience in the position to begin with, not to mention having to do it in a team that he's only just beginning to get to know - plus filling a rather big shoe left behind by Coutinho... In fact, i worry that he's picked up faster/more from Hendo (lateral/back pass king) than from Coutinho, who does more forward and penetrative passes.
Lallana indeed is the best hope for now, but he's still rusty having been out for so long. Just hope he discovers the same form that he was in in the earlier part of last season, then at least not bad... Otherwise, Gini, Can, Hendo all not playmaker materials leh...
Actually, is Lemar a playmaker who can attack from the middle? Otherwise, might still find it hard to control the midfield without a skilful/good MF...
Then when got African Nations cup, Liverpool squad bo lang.
i tot that time Osprey23 said future African Nations Cup will be played in Jun instead of Jan, so no issue liao?
Come to think of it, in 20 yr, Africans are starting to be on par with or at times, better than the Europeans. Why Asians still CMI???
