    Oh trust me ashy, I’ve been saying this for 2 years now😂 just because it makes sense doesn’t mean the club would do it.

    Don't you think you need a more natural striker as back up to Firmino as a plan B if you will?

    Or would you rather get a like for like back up for Firmino, problem is they are hard to find

    A like for like backup for Firmino and I think Minamino can play that role, he's done so before for us. A plan B has never really worked well for us, occasionally Origi would score an important goal but a lot of the time he didn't do much. We got Jota, Minamino and now Ox who can provide some sort of backup for Firmino as well as play wide if needed.

    Also we could also just move Mo more central like we have done a few times. We really just need Mane, Firmino and possibly someone from Mid to be more of a scoring threat and we should be fine. Right now it's too easy for teams to attempt to pocket Mo to prevent us from scoring.

    With the way we whip crosses in, I will never understand how we’ve never had a Plan B guy that can go in and win late headers 🤷‍♂️

    We won’t buy either realistically.

    Maybe we can resign Big Andy!

    Firmino's heading is actually really good. I also highly doubt that we will see Ox or Minamino playing at center forward many games, at least not in the league and UCL. Jota, Salah, Mane will work in any constellation should Firmino be out.

    I criticize his defending a lot but he's averaging 2 goals and 12 assists a season (over the last 3 seasons) in the league from RB. He fully deserves what he's getting.

    He could get a lot more elsewhere as well

    And when they have got their new contracts Liverpool have used the transfer budget on that. :)

    They deserve the new contracts. No doubt about that.

    Some rumors that Wolves have bid 10m for Origi. Club still holding out for 20 though it sounds like.

    I'm convinced we're not signing any other players this summer.

    It concerns me that we have an aging squad yet there is no attempt to buy younger players (or anyone lol).

    New incomings aren’t a major issue to me at this point. Yeah it’s frustrating and a bit disheartening at times watching these rival teams throw stupid money at players, but FSG and Edwards have shown time and again they are in no rush to buy players that won’t make an immediate impact. Again at the moment it’s very hard to dislodge any of our starting XI when healthy 🤷‍♂️

    Age of the squad is something that is starting to worry me a small bit though. That said, players across all sports are playing way past what we used to consider there decline age.

    I still think we’ll see 1-2 new arrivals. One of them likely a huge surprise too.

    Nah, we can't escape him :lol:

    @arsenalap Since you guys know more about him, did he happen to start his career down the left?

    This is probably incredibly rare btw :lol:

    Age of the squad is a massive issue for you IMO

    You’ve got like 3 starters who can be considered young. Everyone else is either peaking or has peaked.

    You don’t want to end up in a position where the team grows old together. Instead you want to gradually replace 1-2 every summer so it never ages too much.

    Like 10 years ago a 30 year old player was considered to be on his peak. Just because the quality of young players is always rising doesn't mean they can apply for pension in this age nowadays ffs :joy:

    Ings just sold to Aston Villa. Pretty sure we have a 20% sell on clause with him, so a little bit of money for the kitty now.

    To the FM players here, when women get added to the game, there's a chance for us to do what Shankly did and build the club from the 2nd division all the way to the League and European trophy! And after that, do what Paisley did and completely dominate the world of football with 20 titles in 9 years, that would be a fun challenge!
