    Now say how you really feel, @gkmacca :)

    Seriously though, I guess the U23 participation in EFL Trophy explains it? Although still it would make sense to see him train with the first team.

    Yeah I'm not gonna bother, he might come good, he might not. I don't see it though.
    Trent had the "it- factor" I could spot it from miles away. So did Suso, Sterling etc. They looked out of place in the reserves, in a good way. Even Hoever looks like a super talent. But then there Andy Robertson, a player barely anyone noticed. So yeah there's a chance.
    Also, Gerrard after his Joe Cole comment is not to be trusted when it comes to scouting.

    I reckon Ojo could tear up the SPL next season - if Scott Sinclair can get 20+ goals I reckon Sheyi - if he keeps his intensity up can do great things.

    Shaq and Divock back in the building. At least we know we can field a front three in the Charity Shield now!

    Milner is a demi-god.

    Are any of the yet-to-return lads likely to get anywhere near Millie ? Virg ? Sadio ?

    Surprised that Fabinho would drop out so early in a fitness test, I always thought he had a big engine. Nice to see Lallana pushing himself - needs to show that extra level of desire to get a look in.

    Fucking love Milner. What a pick up and a great servant to the club. Already a legend!

    I doubt it, guys built like Virg dont usually have godly stamina like Milner, also Sadio strikes me as more of a sprinter than distance runner.

    Seriously? I made the point repeatedly last season that he looked fucked towards the end of games.

    Can't remember what CL game it was, but there was one in particular where he was properly blowing from about 70 minutes.

    He's not anywhere near the fitness level of the others yet imo, I assume this pre season may help get him up to speed, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see him start the season a bit later & look 'unfit' for a while whilst Klopp does that intense training thing to him that seems to turn players legs into lead for a few weeks in order to build stamina.

    Yep he does have fitness issues. Barely has any upper body strength from the look of it as well. But yeah, they'll adress it in training.

    Can anyone explain to me why Clyne hasn't been sold yet?
    Does he want to stay? Is he OK with being back up to Trent? If so I'm happy. He's an excellent backup for both FB positions.
    His contract is up next summer though...
