The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


I think they meant whilst we have a squad of a million players. When we get down to a couple of dozen FIRST teamers, by trimming a dozen pieces of dead wood THEN THAT will be sustainable. 3 or 4 average players out = 1 or 2 good ones in. x 4 at least :)

It may well come back in the future but they've been quite explicit in saying the current way of operating isn't sustainable.

Nope, they've been explicit in saying the squad is too big and they want to assess & trim that before buying for buyings sake.
They've even gone as far as to hint that we may have paid over the odds for players recently.

But, if they turn around and say "Bid £88m+£1 for Ronaldo" now then the board are sorting that out and turning on the fax machine this afternoon.
That's the difference. We still have what is (for all intents and purposes) an unlimited budget. We just have 2 people in charge that believe a lean squad & value for money is the best way of breaking into the top 6.

He might not be too bad in a pressing side as one of the front 3 in a 4-3-3 but as a sub. He does have calibre.

And Silva wants to play a 4-3-3

If he can’t do it under Silva then he never will but definitely deserves a chance.

Not going to lose any value by keeping hold of him, only issue is stupid wages.

And he won’t get the same wages elsewhere so why would he push for a move? Unless he improves drastically we are stuck with him unless he goes on loan and we get at least half his wages paid.

That's the problem. Our squad is full of utter dross on astronomical wages. It's very difficult to sell players like Sandro, Klaassen and Mirallas. Sadly loans till their death is the most realistic option.

Hopefully he’s brought his boots over with him this time and doesn’t need to play in those slippers.

When Sandro started last year, I thought he was a great signing, having performed well in Spain. He probably thought Everton would be great for him also. Little did we expect the chaos and bizarre managerial events and decisions that followed. To be honest, quite a few members of the squad lost their way and under-performed last year - and no wonder!

Still, I can't really blame the young stars for not shining very brightly with the coaching mistakes of last year. Sandro and others deserve another chance - after all, we are giving one to Marco. Hopefully, this year will be like last year never happened and all will be well!

It took Eriksen a year to acclimatise.

That’s why I have a little more hope about him. Rather than a rigid 4-2-3-1 where he wouldn’t fit into. He seems like more of a wide forward to me.

Barrett was quality compared to some of the fullbacks at the time. Who was that fullback who was bought from Tranmere by HK? Or what about Marc Hottiger?
I didn't mind Barrett. I understood the idea of Barrett. John O'Kane finished me off though. I was watching him when it dawned on me that the good old days where well and truely gone and never to come back. It was also when I realised that Kendall was finished as a manager.
