You think Everton will actually come out and try to attack this time?

They spent the second half at xmas camped in their own box.

Liverpool should win comfortably at home to a side with a poor defence. Top four should be no problem for Liverpool, which means Klopp will have money to waste in the Summer.

Maybe he'll actually address the glaring weaknesses in the side this time, unlike all previous windows.

I agree...a new left back, a new keeper and a new striker who is not really a converted centre back.

You forgot a central midfielder or two.

A new manager would be nice too but that's not going to happen. Especially as there's absolutely no pressure from all the "proper" Liverpool supporters who think Klopp deserves more time and money to waste.

Home LFC StatsJurgen Klopp's LFC transfers - In and Out
Jurgen Klopp's LFC Transfers
Jurgen Klopp was appointed the LFC manager in October 2015 - replacing Brendan Rodgers after 8 games of the Premier League campaign.

His philosophy from the outset was to delay player transfers to give him a full assessment of the squad.

He resisted the temptation of signing a player in his first transfer window - January 2016 - although the reds were heavily linked with Alex Teixeira of Shakhtar Donetsk who eventually moved to China.

His first signing was Marko Grujic but he continued to play for his club for the remainder of the season on loan.

The reds reached two cup finals with the squad he inherited, although they lost both the League Cup and Europa League finals.

In the summer he began a massive clearout of many of Brendan Rodgers signings - as he aimed to reduce the number of players the reds were pointlessly loaning out.

8 Players Bought: 69,000,000
Marko Grujić   Red Star Belgrade   5,100,000   6th Jan, 2016
Shamal George   LFC Youth System   0   6th Jan, 2016
Sadio Mane   Southampton   30,000,000   28th Jun, 2016
Loris Karius   Mainz 05   4,700,000   1st Jul, 2016
Joel Matip   Schalke 04   0   1st Jul, 2016
Ragnar Klavan   FC Augsburg   4,200,000   20th Jul, 2016
Alex Manninger   Free Transfer   0   22nd Jul, 2016
Georginio Wijnaldum   Newcastle United   25,000,000   22nd Jul, 2016

17 Players Sold: 73,050,000
Jose Enrique   Released   0   11th May, 2016
Dan Cleary   Released   0   11th May, 2016
Jordan Rossiter   Rangers   250,000   13th May, 2016
Ryan McLaughlin   Released   0   1st Jun, 2016
Samed Yesil   Released   0   30th Jun, 2016
Kolo Toure   Released   0   30th Jun, 2016
Joao Teixeira   FC Porto   0   30th Jun, 2016
Jerome Sinclair   Watford   0   1st Jul, 2016
Sergi Canos   Norwich City   2,500,000   10th Jul, 2016
Martin Skrtel   Fenerbahce   5,500,000   13th Jul, 2016
Jordon Ibe   Bournemouth   15,000,000   13th Jul, 2016
Joe Allen   Stoke City   13,000,000   25th Jul, 2016
Brad Smith   AFC Bournemouth   3,000,000   27th Jul, 2016
Christian Benteke   Crystal Palace   27,000,000   19th Aug, 2016
Luis Alberto   Lazio   4,300,000   31st Aug, 2016
Mario Balotelli   Nice   0   31st Aug, 2016
Tiago Ilori   Reading   2,500,000   18th Jan, 2017


So just for clarification purposes....where has Koop made such bad transfers that he's going to be a transfer flop?  He is in a profit in his transfers and the team is in a stronger position in the league then they were last year. The two big signings in Wijnaldum and Mane have been a success so far this season. Kavanagh is a 3rd/4th choice defender and has been a mixed bag. Karius has not been a successs but he is a small fee and is a young keeper in a new league. He'll either make it or be sold for a profit. He hasn't wasted money, in fact he's done the complete opposite of it,  underspent as the right players have not been available. This is another example of how you haven't a notion what you're on about.

69 million spent according to the above figure, and Mignolet, Henderson and Milner are still first choice players. You are of course free to consider that good transfer activity but personally I find it completely incompetent.

69m spent is a pittance. You said he wasted money. I completely disagree with that. 55m of that money spent was on the two players who have made a big impact this season therefore to my mind that is money well spent not wasted.

69 million may seem a pittance to you, but it is more than enough to improve on Mignolet, Henderson and Milner. Klopp failed to do that. I note that you consider it money well spent.

55m of it is well spent on Wijnaldum and Mane.

Ah no, that's sad. He just launched a book recently too I think. A true Red.

Ronnie Moran RIP. He must have seen some silverware come into the club in his time there.

 He won the First and Second Division titles during his 379 appearances for Liverpool between 1952 and 1968 and as part of the famed Anfield boot room, was a key influence behind the scenes as the club won four European Cups, 13 league championships, five FA Cups, five League Cups, two Uefa Cups and one European Super Cup.

RIP Mr Liverpool.

Liverpool like Man U are only going to be challenging for top 4 places when they have players like Henderson, Milner, Mignolet & Herrera, Smalling, Rojo as regulars.
None of these players would get into the top teams in PL or across Europe.
Akk deadwood.

Ronnie Moran - an absolute giant of the game and as many have said Mr Liverpool (imagined he would be more than 83 mind you - maybe because he always looked older than he actually was.

RIP
