Mister Flip Flop:
I like him and am surprised he didn't get more minutes. Klopp seems to prefer Gakpo though so im not sure if he'll get the minutes to prove himself.

disgraced cake:
For me the most disappointing thing about his season was how it tapered off towards the end. After the brace against United I thought he looked set to end the season strongly but I think he only scored against Leeds after that and got less and less minutes.

There was times when we looked totally grim earlier in the season and I thought Nunez was a bright spark. On the whole I've liked what I've seen - It's been a poor season all round for much of the squad and I think if we can find a top level again Nunez will only benefit from that. As someone else says a stronger midfield can't hurt next season, but it does look like Diaz/Gakpo/Salah could form a main attacking trio with Nunez and Jota lying in waiting. That's hardly a bad thing, like.

Hoping Nunez can have a really good pre-season now, bang a few in, look likely and make his case known for next season. He's got a lot more to give us I feel and should at the least 'get minutes' next season.

--- End quote ---
He seemed to have a few niggly injuries during the run-in, culminating in him missing the last three games with a toe injury.  Also a few of his cameo appearances weren't great - I'm thinking particularly of the West Ham game where they were pushing for an equaliser and he kept giving the ball away.

I definitely agree that he was a bright spark earlier in the season, particularly in the period prior to the World Cup.

has gone odd:
It would be sad if Jota was just a bench player, he came on strong after his injury and believe he should be starting, until it seems he isn't up for it.

Nunez for me would be warming the bench at the start of the season am afraid to say. Hope he has a belter of a season though and proves me wrong.
