Old Skool: Liverpool’s Flexible Squad Options

Old Skool: Liverpool’s Flexible Squad Options

The Old Skool duo are back once again to discuss Liverpool's flexible squad options as the transfer window for incoming players is now closed. Gags and Dave discuss the different midfield combinations that could be used in different situations by Klopp and how Liverpool could keep the quality up in the middle even with rotation. The AI Old Skool pair then move onto talk about Liverpool's attacking options and what Dave would do against Crystal Palace next week to bamboozle the Hodge! What's clear is the improvement in Liverpool's squad options and how the defence seems more settled even though there's a large dependency on Virgil van Dijk! All this and more on this episode of Old Skool on AnfieldIndex Pro!
Old Skool: Pulisic & Player Sales

Old Skool: Pulisic & Player Sales

Gags and Dave are back together once again to discuss Liverpool's links to Christian Pulisic. Dave discusses what he likes about the player and why he would be a good fit at the club and the marketing potential behind having a player like that. The AI Old Skool pair then moves on to talk about player sales and how Edwards should have a statue built of him if he manages to get nearly £50m for Danny Ings and Divock Origi. The discussion then briefly focuses on whether Liverpool will buy anyone before Dave starts to rant about Everton's business this summer! After a rant about Lallana, Richarlison is on the Navan's radar as he lets loose in this episode of Old Skool on AnfieldIndex Pro!
Old Skool: Liverpool Back In The Big Time!

Old Skool: Liverpool Back In The Big Time!

Gags and Dave are as excited as can be expected as they react to Liverpool being on the verge of breaking a world record as Alisson's signing is all but complete. In this podcast they focus on so much more than that, they look at what it means, how Liverpool can afford it, the overhaul of the squad in the last 18 months and the job that has been done by Klopp and Edwards. If you're a Michael Edwards hater I really would not listen in as the AI Old Skoolers gush over his accomplishments in the last few years with Jurgen Klopp at the helm. There's even time to talk about the rumours of the exits of Origi, Ings and the Ward transfer that is also imminent. If that isn't enough the crazy duo manage to gush about Daniel Sturridge being a squad option for Liverpool and how having that quality around is always a good thing. So much positivity, as there should be - this is Old Skool on AnfieldIndex Pro!

Old Skool – With Hendrick & Brundish

Old Skool – With Hendrick & Brundish

Gags Tandon goes back in time as AI Pro goes Old Skool with this special podcast. There's been no Liverpool game for over a week so Gags put his old team back together (minus John Ritchie, we miss ya buddy), and got Dave Hendrick and Simon Brundish on to answer subscriber questions. They answered the following: Jeremy Fowke: Based on where we are now, what could be considered a successful season? Stephen Balogun: Has Klopp really addressed the defensive issues in your opinion.....also given its the stick most Klopp out fans beat him with should he have addressed this side of our game 1st.....and why do you think he didn't? Tom Holmes: Are Liverpool doing better against the dross this season because the general level of the dross has dropped? Gregory Kampas: Klopp has recently said he's done his rotating of players for the season and will be playing his best 11 til seasons end. Is this wise? If we progress to the CL semis, are we risking a burn out, similar to Europa league final a few years ago? Sam McGuire: Would you stick with Robertson as the starting left-back now or does Moreno come into the starting XI before the season comes to an end? Shack McMurphy @DoctorHoffmann: Can Lallana ever make Dave happy whilst playing for LFC? Henry Jackson: If it was the Champions League final tomorrow, what would your starting midfield-three be? Sam McGuire: If you had to sell one of James Milner, Jordan Henderson or Adam Lallana in the summer, who would it be and why? Doesn't make financial sense to keep all three next season given Lallana and Henderson seem to timeshare a position in the squad due to injuries. Graeme Bass: Do we need a new Keeper or can you see Karius being our De Gea? (Joash Chipasha asked a similar question) Joey Connors: Joseph Connors Can LFC win a title with the current model? Buying good players but our best leaving. A la Suarez/Coutinho. Is that sustainable? Sully @rjbsully: De Vrij - yes/no? Good partner for VVD? Mo Chatra: What should we do with Clyne? Keep or sell? Jay Patel: What 3 positions does Klopp simply HAVE to recruit during the summer and why? Niall Purcell: The media narrative around lfc players who aren’t good enough in the medium to long term and should be sold this summer. Robbie Carrick: Who is the 'bellend of the week'?
