    Even better imo

    I have such a huge crush on Klopp, rivalling how I used to feel for Torres from 07-09. :heart:

    I actually think it's disgraceful that Sakho was charged with taking something that wasn't even banned. If they don't know what is banned or not, how the **** are the players supposed to know? Prevented from playing in the EL Final and the Euros all for nothing.

    On another note, I guess that will give the green light for Skrtel to move on.

    Yea it's a bit crazy that he effectively got punished and for what?

    Ah well, Kolo had a good run at the end of the season and no guarantee that Sakho would've been much better for us. Other reasons why we didn't win frankly.

    Glad that the Sakho situation has been resolved now. That's 3 CBs now sorted for next season and then we just need to decide who is our 4th choice option for cover.

    Saw some brief highlights - and Ings looked hungry and raring to go. He probably just loves being back on the grass with teammates, to be honest, but it bodes well.*

    Didn't realise Tranmere had that fat McNulty lad these days.*

    On the basis that he wasn't included in the pre-season match?

    I guess we've either got to sell, loan or terminate his contract?

    I know people will be giving the plaudits to Alexander-Arnold and Ings, however I think it's worth mentioning just how impressive Ejaria and Kent looked in the match yesterday.

    Yes it was only a friendly against Tranmere, however both looked exceptional on the ball and not short of confidence. Ejaria is huge but his control is excellent. Very good signs.

    Yep.

    Paul Joyce: "Despite interest from Fenerbahce and Sampdoria, Liverpool could be forced to send Balotelli back out on loan or come to some agreement with him that would terminate his contract."

    Hard to judge really, they only got 45 minutes and were barely tested against Tranmere.

    Karius looks confident and appears to be relishing the opportunity to challenge Mignolet, however barely had to do a thing so can't say much there.

    Matip again had to do little but it's clear he's comfortable on the ball which is a good sign. With Sakho cleared and Lovren looking solid, we have some really good CB options next season.

    Mané's blistering pace was obvious from the get go. I think the big thing he'll add is the fact that he loves to get in behind the defence. With players like Coutinho being able to thread a pass through, we might be able to score a different type of goal than we're used to.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how Mané does for us, it got frustrating when we played three no 10s at once because no one was looking to go beyond the ball, they all wanted to be the one passing it, which can make it easier to defend in my view. Sadio will give us something different in attack.
    Good to see Alexander-Arnold and Woodburn get game time as well.

    Most pleasing aspect of Karius' performance was his footwork for me. Confident on the deck, he moved the ball and shifted it quickly, linking the play with the centre-backs pretty straightforwardly.*
