Early matches fairly pointless (especially bigger teams) as the Internationals are only just coming back from their holibobs.

Liverpool's joined up this weekend and Klopp suggested they'll only get short cameos in game 1 on Tuesday. I'll go into the teams etc on detail on the Liverpool thread after the game.

Thanks PB, always really appreciate this thread each season.

And, for others, I’ve noted today that PB updated the opening post(s) with yesterday’s games, so check back regularly even if (like me) you usually rely on unread post indicators!

A bump, so this thread stays hot.

And Martial ... new manager new start?

or a big forward signing in the offing?

Darwin Nunez comes on as a half time sub and scores 4, 1 of which was a pen while Salah was on the pitch!

My guess is that Nunez got the pen to break his duck, rather than being No 1 pen taker.

Yeah more than likely but with him being 4 mil cheaper than Salah and Diaz 5 mil I'm leaning further towards those 2 and no Mo.

Apparently he is known as a very good penalty taker but that doesn't answer it either way.

Yeah, Klopp said so himself;

"...Then Mo gives Darwin the penalty and Darwin, Pandora’s box was open. That’s of course a perfect night for him."

Just watched the Nunez goals. Not sure how many of those would occur in a Prem game. 2 awfully sloppy bits of play from opposition, albeit created from Liv press, a pen almost saved and a very poor bit of goalkeeping for his 4th goal.

As others have said, these friendlies don't mean a lot, but must do something for his confidence. Price tag pressure might weigh on him now he's in a big pond, we'll see.

Could be both.

Martial does have a history of starting well for new managers at United. Only last 4 or 5 games though. But this could be his last chance to stay with a top team, he didn't impress on loan at Seville and if he fails this season at United I can't see any top teams being interested.

I said on the Manchester United thread, he has tremendous talent, it'll just take the right Manager to unlock it. If we don't sign another forward and he starts the season, he could be a major early bargain.

Indeed: what happens if Ron stays?

I've watched pretty much all your friendlies and you're more fluid in attack without him.

Sancho is a player attracting my attention and so far has avoided the glare of the content creators!

Yep. He's definitely played the best of the front 3, and is playing on the right.
