We Go Again-The Season Nearly Upon Us

We Go Again Soon

Well that was quick wasn’t it. What I mean is the pre-season break. It’s gone in a blink of an eye. We are so close to “We Go Again” time. It only seems five minutes since the Champions League victory but incredibly it’s been nearly nine weeks. Where’s that time gone!!! Yes indeed, we go again soon.

We Go Again Soon

We Go Again Soon-The Season Nearly Upon Us

This Sunday sees us take on Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley. A glorified friendly to many maybe, but to others, it is the first opportunity to win some silverware. It wouldn’t be a disaster if we lost but a victory will continue the feelgood factor of picking up a trophy. However insignificant it may be to some.

No doubt our fans will turn up in huge numbers, so as far as the fans are concerned it is very much a case of “We Go Again”

Pre Season – The Story So Far

Not a particularly brilliant pre-season in terms of results. But are the results the main issue when it comes to friendlies? There are so many things to consider.

All things being equal, we may have played teams all at the same point in pre-season preparations and we may have had a full squad to choose from. If so, we may be talking about seven wins out of seven – instead of three wins, one draw and three defeats.

This is not an excuse, nor is it a moan. It’s a statement of fact. As mentioned, are the results the main point when it comes to pre-season friendlies? If we did have a full squad to choose from, would we have seen so much of our undoubted excellent crop of youngsters?

We Go Again – Excited About Our Young Stars

Not each and every one will make it as a big success in the first team but already you can see that there is some real talent coming through. We already know about Harry Wilson. He had a really successful loan spell at Derby last season, and as he is now 22, the “up and coming youngster” doesn’t really apply in his case.

Nevertheless, the loan periods away have all gone to make him more of a finished article. Personally I would like to see him stay and become a vital member of the squad. His goal against Lyon was testament of a player brimming with confidence. Thanks to his spell at Derby we now have a player that may well have cost us something in the region of £20m-£25m if we had to buy him.

As for the other youngsters. Ki-Jana Hoever, Rhian Brewster, Yasser Larouci, Adam Lewis, Sepp Van Den Berg, Bobby Duncan and Harvey Elliott to name just a few, have all enjoyed a successful introduction to life in Liverpool’s first team.

Harvey Elliott – what a find he may turn out to be. Just over 16 and he looks as though he’s been around for years.

Any More New Signings?

Obviously only time will tell, but for me the short answer is, if Jurgen Klopp thinks we need anyone then I’m sure we will sign somebody. If he sees that what we have is good enough, then that’s good enough for me.

However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see an addition or two before the window closes. For instance, maybe a left-back as cover for Andy Robbo?

Manchester City Coming Up – We Go Again

A very early meeting with Manchester City sets up the season nicely doesn’t it. Win or lose, on the plus side, at least the players will have a tough work out against a quality outfit that will improve fitness and sharpness.

Let’s all look forward to the season ahead and let’s hope it is as exciting as last season. We Go Again is synonymous with Liverpool to a large extent. Hopefully we can embrace that mantra and “Go Again” in the right direction.
