So now we have Sarkic, Kaikai, Yates, Anderson, Ward, Lubala, CJ, Keshi and now Woodburn

All attacking winger/number 10 floaters

He could play the "Ward" role but actually have an impact, allowing Anderson to push forward and support the front 3.
He isn't a holding midfielder

Seen a bit of him with living in Wales with a couple of Wales fans and i can tell you he isn't the answer to our centre midfield problems

Best played behind a front man or cutting in from wide

Robson Virtue
Woodburn

Anderson
Hamilton Yates


Looks ok to me.

(Won't let me space them apart, so not as central as that appears above)

Has he signed? If so will be interesting to see the team selection tomorrow. I would question the reasoning behind him going straight into the team if neither of the two new centre halves weren't selected.

Ward isn't playing the holding midfield role, he isn't doing anything except running around and being anonymous.
We need someone (Virtue when finally available) to play alongside Robson to allow Anderson (or Woodburn now) to be able to get forward and link with the front 3.

Not sure we should get too excited about the tackle ability til we see him play. I watched a lot of his progress at LFC when he broke through and I never saw that part of his game personally. Oxford fans say they saw a bit of it develop before he got injured. Can't imagine he will be more effective in that regard than Robson, and can't see him being much better at tackling than Ward who remember has a decent amount of experience at a higher level.

Let's also not forget, that one of our most successful players in modern times, David Vaughan, was signed and initially played as a left midfielder before moving in to the middle.

I have no issue with players moving position if their abilities allow it, but we are currently seeing players played out of position with little if any benefit to themselves or the team.

Two Liverpool reporters claiming it’s done. One saying it’s till January the other saying end of the season, nothing’s been confirmed by the club yet though
