The new season is almost upon us and is no less welcome for the fact that football never actually went away over the summer. Liverpool are yet to sign any senior players and this gives a chance for the youngsters to make a case for their involvement. Personally, I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of signings so far and was expecting at least a left back and a versatile forward by now. We can't afford to stand still while others strengthen. The injuries to Keita, Shaqiri and Kellaher are also disappointing.
The first few pre-season games are more about fitness than team rhythm for the senior players but the youngsters will be keen to impress. I am looking forward to seeing Brewster and Ven den berg in particular. It will also be interesting to see if Kent or Wilson can impress sufficiently to play a part in the coming season.
I won't put a predicted team here as I expect all those who began training on Saturday plus possibly Origi to get time on the pitch at some stage. Tranmere have done well to recover from relegation into the Conference with successive promotions to reach League 1 so they will provide useful opposition. The result isn't too important but staying injury free would be relief.
