    We have two problems this season. The first are injuries to CBs which have seriously hurt us. But we have another problem as well. We have several aging players whose legs are not quite up to the task of playing highly dynamic football and can't press efficiently. This might be the season when the legends step down and make way to Rodri, Foden, Jesus, Cancelo, Bernardo....

    Liverpool have only one player over 30 y.o. and he is running more than the other players. We have several players over 30 and they are already over the hill physically wise.

    Hope and believe we can still win the title but Laporte's injury has hit us very badly. Hope we can win the CL for the legends. Would be the best way for them to leave the club

    I have no doubt the team we saw today can’t win a title.

    He needs to blood youth until Sane and Laporte return and take stock then.

    We are the only team in premier who aren't aloud a transitional period.

    “Transitional season”. You know you are doomed when that comes out. It’s code for performing shit.

  5. Yep. Fern turning 34, Silva turning 33, Kompany leaving. How were we to know these things were going to happen?

    Silva should not be playing twice a week, and he is not a starter for me.

    When Kevin is back the front 6 should be

    Rodri
    Bernardo Kev
    Mahrez Kun/Jesus Raheem

    Sergio and Gabriel are totally different. Sergio more clinical, Gabriel far more physical presence. Toss up.

    Not really. But it's not always possible to perform miracles and win the title without key players being available. We were winning the games with Norwich and Wolves with Eric and Kevin in the team. We've been seriously unlucky with injuries and even Pep can't always find a winning formula when we miss some top players, play a 34 y.o. midfielder at CB and the other CB is playing like a clown.

    There is no need to overhaul the squad, there are only 4-5 players who are aging and their replacements are already in the squad or at least most of them.
