Pushing for the title? think you’ve got the wrong team.
their only other option from the starting 3 is Divock Origi
Taki played well and impressed in some games but was never given a real chance here.
Something Carragher pointed out a few weeks ago, this Liverpool attack (Mane, Firmino, Salah) is already past the average shelf life for a title winning attack. Something Fergie mastered was keeping it fresh. Rooney, Tevez, Ronaldo is widely seen as one of the best trios there was.....they played together for just two years.
Sterling, Aguero, Sane....2 years? If that?
This is the fourth season of Mane, Firmino and Salah. Is it going stale? Possibly!
Another issue Liverpool are slowly sleepwalking into is the contract situation of those three players. I'm not privy to how close or far away they are from extensions but the fact is all three of them will have two years left this summer. That is NOT a position I'd like to be in as a fan. And what's worse is the financial landscape of football means there are barely any clubs they'd be able to cash in to if those players made it clear they don't want to extend.
Madrid and Barca are skint. Bayern probably aren't interested, do Juve have the money? After those four, you're looking at City, Chelsea or PSG? The first two aren't happening so you're left dealing in a one club market. It really isn't the best looking scenario.
I feel they have one replacement already in Jota.
Of course, they could all extend their deals. But you feel like it would have happened by now. I think one of them does extend but not all three.
Salah is still going strong the other two need replacing imo. Jota can do that for either of them so we need one more to come in.
Hmm, I'd say we need one more for competition for Bobby personally rather than outright replace him and Mane. Sadio just looks burned out to me. We need Jota back so we can start rotating them.
Yeah obviously I'd keep them in and around the first 11 we do need another versatile attacker though like Jota...Ironically Timo Werner would have fit us so well.
We already have 1 striker who can't score mate...
Werner will come good I reckon Klopp would have got him firing too. It's sound anyway Mbappe is coming
Mane doesn't need replacing looking short term, he just needs to get over this shit patch. He's 28 so has at least another couple of seasons at the top level I'd say, especially with his athleticism. He'll be back to the quality we all know and love.
Bobby concerns me more. I wouldn't be surprised if we never see him consistently provide the service he was in the last couple of seasons, but hope I'm wrong. He's the weak link of the three for me right now and, more concerning, doesn't appear to have the desire we've seen previously.
Salah is Salah. He can literally look like shit for 5 games then go on to score 8 goals in the next 5. A bit more consistency in his goal scoring would be nice like we saw in his first season, but the fact we've been a bag of turgid dog shit for months now yet he still sits at the top of the golden boot table tells you everything you need to know.
That you over rely on his goals?.....
Absolutely! At the moment he's as important to us as that ratty-looking Portuguese geezer is for you.
Don't know that it's controversial as such but shame one of the City boys will take player of the season ahead of Kane.
Ultimately Kane's season might drag us up to 4th at very best whilst the likes of Dias have been key in winning the title & cups.
Penandes a contender too?
Grown men saying ‘Penandes’ **** me
Are we talking about the con job awards?
Probably be on the shortlist. Don't think he'd be close to winning it though.
Probably the shortlist
Agree usually tbf. Normally gets a nibble from some United fans though.
