As all fans are aware many column inches often derogatory in nature have been published with much scrutiny being made of the pre-season form of our team.

I’m sure you will agree that pre-season often brings more questions than answers…who will play? Who will be dropped? Who will stay? Who will be sold? What will the team be on the opening day of the season? I ask the simple question and ask for your opinion….is pre-season merely a shop window for players no longer wanted by LFC?

The recent games evidence this with Poulsen, Aquilani, Ngog, Cole and Insua all receiving adequate playing time. One should ask how these players feature in Kenny’s plans for the coming season, I am not suggesting that these players are not decent. I am however asking if the clubs apparent eagerness to sell/release is affecting the pre-season build up?

I personally would prefer some of the younger academy prospects being given 15/20 minutes against lesser oposition such as Valerenga and Malaysia XI. Connor Coady showing his potential already with Wisdom, Suso and Sterling all capable of following Flanagan and Robinson into the 1st team squad.

Would it not be more prudent to blood some of these prospects than give Poulsen et al more playing time to ultimately disappoint? Our pre-season has not been the best, however I believe the position Kenny has been put in by past poor purchases may ultimately affect our start to the season. Again I ask the question….pre-season or ‘shop window’?

OurKop.com would like to welcome Billo to the team
