Feeling quite positive about the new season.

Looks as though Ole will favour a 4-3-3 with pace in attack. Rashford will clearly be number 9, Dan James has looked impressive on both sides so far and then you've got Martial and Greenwood as other versatile forwards. I'd like to see another come in to replace Lukaku who does not fit this system at all.

Pogba and Mata/ Pereira ahead of McTominay/ Matic could be a well balanced midfield, although would prefer Bruno Fernandes to partner Pogba.

Having a natural right back makes a huge difference and AWB has looked good in the game and a half he's had so far. Reducing the reliance on the left hand side will make us a far more balanced attacking force.

Lastly I hope we get Lindelöf a partner and DDG signs a new deal and gets back to his best.

Onwards and upwards and enjoying the ride as always!

Based on 180 minutes of training sessions against non league teams, Fresh. Getting carried away are we?

Few reports linking us with Zaniolo who Spurs are supposedly after. Anything in them Ed02 if you don't mind? Seems like another name to add to the long list of false targets.

Against Leeds today first half was OK. No more than that. Greenwood is going to be some player if he progresses as he is at the moment. Second half I think offensively we didn't really push or attack with any great intensity and incisiveness. Defensively worried me more though. A very poor Leeds team broke through our defence several times and but for a lack of composure would have scored several times. How many times our defenders kept losing their man.

As a follow up to my post just saw Sky highlights of Co ty v West Ham. What a difference. Honestly we are nowhere near as good as City so will have to hope that we make some more top quality signings over the next two or three transfer windows. We won't be close to challenging City for a while. That said I hope people air their views both positive and negative but when it comes to matches we need to back the manager and the team. Confidence is a wonderful asset and if we support the players and manager they will hopefully feel more settled and play better.

We played well, scored 4 goals, kept a clean sheet, lots of players had a good game, youth looking promising, it’s only a friendly, on the other side of the world, at a time when nobody is really watching.

Don’t get your knickers in a twist.

Wazza that's my point. It was only a friendly against a vv poor team and yet defensively we looked frail and second half offensively were poor. Contrast that with how City played (also with several young players in) and they still played by far the better football against a team much better than Leeds. Its just a sad reality at the moment that they are far ahead of us.

Question for the eds or any of who have studied this one a bit: what are the pros and cons of young players going on loan? Thinking of our current group. Sometimes good players go out on loan and never make it back.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It depends entirely on the club. At the top end, ech loan player from Chelsea has a liaison officer assigned (some are ex-players) who regularly see them, deal with any issues and report progress back to the club. For instance there was an issue with Lukaku and the club decided at the start of 2014 that he would be sold in the summer. His liaison tried very hard to reverse that decision, but to no avail. There was also a problem with a couple of players in the Netherlands and that resulted in the club having them get involved with spending some time with the local community (schools and charities). Chelsea has also helped clubs they have and are building relationships with - this may include providing training facilities, loaning coaching staff, having ex-players work with them in some capacity etc.. They have a structure in the Netherlands and Belgium in addition to relationships with South American and old Eastern Bloc countries. They are still working a deal with a Champions League side as well. In Italy I know that the clubs with a significant number of players on loan have regular contact and bring them back as a group for training on a couple of occasions mid-season. I am sure there will be someone at Liverpool keeping contact with the younger players on loan as they know there is a problem and are looking to fix it. Manchester United has a couple of long-term relationships with mainland European sides which have helped considerably in the past. Manchester City are building up their capability. Many clubs in Spain and Portugal have built relationships with other sides and it helps with brining in players from South America.}

Am I the only one who thinks we really should sell Pogba if we can get our money back. He has talent but is lazy and a malign influence on the team both on the pitch and in the dressing room. Leopards don't change their spots and we should rebuild without him.

Do you read the posts or have you just popped on with this nugget? This has been done to death. Some think he is maligned, others think he is a lazy arse. Pick your side.

Cinderella you are not the only one.
If he wants to leave then the club are entitled to get as much as possible if they don't get that then it looks like he will have to stay.
He has not handed in a written transfer request so he can't be that desperate to get out.
Keeping an unhappy player is a gamble that can backfire. None of us are privy to the conversations he has had with ole.
If ole thinks he is worth keeping and has a plan for the team to improve with pogba in it and he feels he knows how to make it all work then i have to support the manager. He is the one that is obviously happy that pogba will be committed if he stays.
If pogna tells ole he wants to leave and will not be motivated if he stays then he had to be sold.
Its big boy stuff honesty and trust needed on both sides. If he wants to go and madrid are prepared to pay the asking price then i feel he should be sold its best for all parties imo.

Haha yes I think you’re the only one, I can’t believe nobody else on here has ever thought to suggest we sell pogba.

Wan Bissaka 👍💪 now we need a centre back, a good central midfielder and a right winger.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 14:57:27
May be early days but wan Bissaka will be one of the best signings we have made in a long long time. He’s so solid in defence and provided a nice assist for greenwood. It’s so great to finally see a proper rb. Ecstatic with this signing.

I thought we looked very good in parts today. So much pace at times. Still vulnerable at the back and a authoritative cb is needed. Feel we still miss a player who can control the tempo. But I did like how we pressed higher up as a pack. I think if Bruno is to come in for Mata then our attack will look much better. Pogba is still our most creative outlet. I personally want him gone and don’t like his attitude, but there is no doubting his talent. Such a frustration because he can be incredible. Some positive signs for sure to build on.

Rashford's goal was sublime. It had Terry Henry written all over it.

Here's hoping we see more of that in the coming season.

Rashford's dummy and composure for finish was good to see.
If we don't sign a RW, we can probably try James and Greenwood for that spot.

Not going to get too excited but there are positives to take from pre season so far. A long way to go though. A very long way.

This is fantastic watching you lot get excited again LOL.

17 Jul 2019 16:22:58
Personally i think if we can rotate Greenwood, Chong, James and Lingard on that RW position, it isn't as pressing as some think. I would much rather get a solid CB in (still not sold on slab head but will take it) and then bring in fernandes and depending if pogba leaves Milinkovic savic, if he doesn't leave then longstaff.

Certainly nice to see the team looking fit and sharp so early in the pre-season, young players giving the manager decisions to make and a couple of signings still to come. Must be doing ok as (I assume) a Liverpool fan is already on here being a tit.

Much better than last pre-season already where our manager seemed to fall out with everyone at the club and moan about the whole tour, Ole is a breath of fresh air.

1990 you will win the league this year, do you know the Premiership the one you never won.
Get excited this will be your year.

It's always great to give Leeds a good shellacking.
Would be good to have them back in the Premiership though.
Massive club and Bielsa is a great coach.

Could be an easy 6 points every season? Joke, they were not there today, Bielsa seemed to only have 16 players available.

Btw i don't know why but im starting to feel positive about our future, i think Ole will surprise most here, we'll see. i'll be happy if we finished 4th this coming season.
