Our defense is one of (if not THE) best in the League... perhaps Dalglish considered consistency to be a factor in that?

It's not particularly hard to see why, if the first choice RB and LB are constantly fit, the back ups don't see as much game time, is it?

The club don't HAVE to fill out a 25 man squad. That's a maximum, not a minimum.

So what should be our starting line-up!!! I think till Lucas returns it would be something like this:

-----------Reina-----------
Kelly-Agger-Skrtel-Glen
----Allen-Henderson----
----------Shahin----------
----Gerrard---Suarez----
-----------Borini----------

Glen on left-flank is a waste. Also I expect Assaidi (or even Downing) getting the nod which will mean Gerrad playing AM in front JA-NS.

Reina
Johnson - Skrtel - Agger - Enrique
Sahin - Allen - Gerrard
Borini - Suarez - Assaidi

This would undoubtedly be our starting XI . . . hopefully we would be able to get a glimpse of Assaidi & Sahin :bow:

We really have no idea how good Assaidi is, so I'm not going to include him in any of my lineups until he's given his debut.

With Lucas available my personal preference would be

---------------Reina--------------
-----------Skrtel--Agger----------
---Johnson----Lucas----Enrique---
-----------Allen---Sahin----------
------Gerrard----------Borini------
--------------Suarez-------------

Allen-Sahin-Gerrard are wonderful in possession, and can effectively boss the midfield against most clubs in the Prem League. However, we saw today how a team can bypass them in a counterattack and make us pay. Without Lucas, there is no tackling midfielder to break up the counter. While we won't miss him to the extent we did last year, it is still a big loss.

When he returns, I wouldn't mind see one of these lineups:
---------------Reina--------------
-----------Skrtel--Agger----------
---Johnson----Lucas----Enrique---
-----------Allen---Sahin----------
------Gerrard-------Assaidi/Borini------
--------------Suarez-------------

or...

---------------Reina--------------
-----------Skrtel--Agger----------
---Johnson----Lucas----Enrique---
-----------Allen---Sahin----------
------Gerrard-------Suarez------
--------------Borini-------------

Gerrard has been pushing into the inside forward positions anyway, and even with such quality players as Sahin and Allen coming into the midfield, he will not be benched. Therefore, we might as well put him in the position he pushes into.

Borini has been a little disappointing on the right, dropping too deep to be very effective. He either needs to be played up top, moved to the left where he's more likely to cut inside and shoot, or simply benched to reinforce the need for him to stay high and attack. We HAVE to have more attacking impetus, and that's precisely what he was brought in to do. Right now, he isn't performing the role we need him to.

I really want to see what Assaidi can do. He's had a few very good seasons at Heerenveen, and looks like the kind of live-wire player we could use in the attack. However, we won't know what he can do for Liverpool until he gets a little game time. I really wanted to see him replace Borini today... then I realized he wasn't even on the bench and I was left shaking my head... Mad

Agree with everything you say Dontreadyreddy, except Gerrard is the furthest thing from being wonderful in possession. He once used to be, but he's not 26/27 anymore, he's awful with possession nowadays. When he has time on the ball, sure he's decent, he can deliver a decent ball or two. Unless he plays one of the forward three spots he needs to be benched completely.

Poor choice of words. I meant they are a great midfield trio when Liverpool are in possession, meaning they are good when we are in control of the game. However, they are far more liable to be caught by a counter than a midfield including Lucas.

He certainly has put in fairly poor performances on several occasions in this young season. I can't tell (maybe don't want to see) if he's past it or just needing to regain a good run of form. Only time will tell, but I would like to see him tried in one of the forward positions.

After reading today's letter written by Henry, I must say, the line "We are still in the process of reversing the errors of previous regimes Embarassed ....and our own mistakes" very much reflects the status of the club as 'under recovery'. The signings made specially in the previous season were clearly overpaid, as anyone would agree. I am happy that at least BR knows how much he is paying for what kind of player, I was little doubtful about Allen signing, but just in three games he has proved his worth. So except Borini, other signings were with less risk factor.
What I want to conclude is, I have some faith in BR's signings and his strategy for developing the correct squad required to succeed with his philosophy. eco smile
So, BR himself will have many combinations in midefiled, also in front trio to check which players can be the first choice for big games. Like Reina, he is not as good as he was (Gerrard too). So it will be difficult task for himself to select the right squad. No :facepalm:
If I have to guess the squad, I cant really say this player will come out good at this/that position.

We hope our season picks up from here Sad To go by today's letter from John Henry, it seems like this season is definitely one for rebuilding and not for competing for anything big (i.e. 4th, EL). I'm guessing winning and achieving anything is just a bonus for this season Sad .

24.....Fairly unproven, I guess experience wise he's pretty young.

Hardly the point. Our only "natural" finisher is a 17 year old that's never featured in the first team. lol

Seems like Assiadi hasn't been picked for the team because he's been injured

I'm hoping we can see him against Sunderland in action.

Morgan. Hasn't played in the PL yet but he's the only "natural" finisher at the club. And being totally honest, I've only see him play in Europa/friendlies so I have no idea on how good his finishing is. He's been getting into some great positions when played.

Goalkeepers: Weak. Reina has become a liability, Jones isn't great either. Still haven't made my mind up on Gulasci

Defenders: Skrtel and Agger need to stay fit. Coates is still learning is trade and Carragher has been decline for a while. If Enrique plays like he did the first half of last season I would be confident in our full backs, but this remains to be seen.

Midfield: With Lucas, Allen, Sahin, Gerrard, Henderson & JohnJoe, I think we are quite strong in this area. One main concern is Gerrard. In my opinion he needs to up his game big time. He needs to win his place in the team with better performances. His days of being an automatic pick should be over.

Attack: Our weakest area really. Suarez and Borini will have to play a lot of games this season. If you want to try and look at things positively, at least now we will forced to give minutes to some of the younger lads. Sterling will have a big role to play this season. Morgan could possibly get a run too in Carling cup
