    Total Joy!

    Really makes up for losing the EPL - but even that season was so great that the CL title actually makes the fight the team made the last 10 games or so in the EPL a pretty sweet season.

    I mean, which year would you rather have, Man City or Liverpool? I'll take Liverpool any day because it was just a more exciting team to watch, imo. Loved this crazy parade.

    I teared up again watching the photos and videos of the parade.

    This is just the start... greatness is not measured on one season, it's measured over time. We can't continue at this level without adding depth IMO. We were somewhat fortunate with injuries this year. And then the Barcelona game saw both Firmino and Salah out and we ended up doing that. My fear is that the brass see that as proof that we already have the depth. That night was magic. That is not a normal occurrence. That is not something you can expect over the course of time.

    Leaving, Sturridge and Moreno. Maybe leaving? Mignolet... Lallana? Not big losses but certainly depth losses. I said it last offseason and I'll repeat it, we need another pacey player to backup Mane/Salah. We need a Firmino clone. We need another left back for depth. We could use another young centre back. We need a backup GK (Bogdan is out too... :shifty:). I'm probably okay with the midfielders because you have some young depth there ready perhaps in Woodburn and Jones (I suppose Ben is more of a forward). Want to see Rhiann Brewster in the summer too. Need to see it and then determine his path for 2019/2020. A decent player from what I've seen in his England national stints. Can he take that next step now that he's back healthy? And does Divock stay? Hope so!

    EDIT... it's hard to add quality experienced depth because top players don't want to come here to be a backup. Should not go unmentioned.

    Absolutely Divock stays, they are already working on a contract extension. I agree with ya that we mainly need a LB and quality backup for Mane/Salah. I honestly don't think there is anyone right now that can play Firmino's role in football that wouldn't cost us an arm and leg. Outside of LB, the backline is in solid position I think and doesn't need anymore backups. I pray they don't sell Lovern until we are sure Gomez can stay healthy for a full season (I know the leg break was a freak accident). Same with our midfielders, Lallana is working hard to work his way back into the starting 11, he cut short holiday to start training again. Most of the guys have been playing football for nearly 12 months so the youngsters should see some quality time during the preseason matches. I'm really interested to see what Wilson does after a successful loan with Derby this past season. Don't forget that Markovic had a hell of a season with Hertha to. I think Woodburn will prolly go out on loan after being recalled early in Jan this year.

    PS- I miss not having football to love forward to each week lol..... already getting the withdrawls. At least I got the Women's World Cup to watch.

    Fixtures for 2019-20 are out! Woohoo!

    Hard to believe they are starting friendlies July 11. Man. That's not much time off after the June 1 CL win. I'd rest the top 11-15 those early games. Maybe give them an extra week or so off?

    Also, I used to go to BBC Sports for club info (and still do for articles and reports) but hate the way they show fixtures and results. I like this system much better (though I'm not a fan in general of ESPN's PL coverage).
