I believe Keita, VVD and Robertson will be Liverpool players before the start of the season .

I have to be careful how I word things .

Last time is said VVD was done, I didn't know that Liverpool hadn't agreed a fee with Southampton, I am not that good .

Great signings if they happen, but I believe they will .

Welcome back and thanks for your info Macca. Much appreciated and hope they will happen sooner rather than later. These players should strengthen our team significantly but the weight of their price tags will surely affect them or the team at some point. But it is what it is. I'd rather we have this problem than have to deal with sub standard signings.

I have to say that the abuse you get for your info is a sign of how important you are here to a lot of people. People get so emotive when they accuse you of being 'wrong, ' I guess it shows that people actually care about the contributions you make.

Macca do you realise you've just possibly ruined the weekend of all the people who said neither VVD or Kieta deals would happen and that everyone was an idiot who posted about either player. How can you sleep at night 😂

That would be some outlay cash-wise, what WILL the "FSG out" brigade make of it all?

Who will be the first poster to rip into a signing?

Where will Ken Augerio be spotted next?

And will Harry have a new name by then?

*happy sigh*. well, let's all "believe".

36.) 14 Jul 2017
14 Jul 2017 18:16:05
Would be absolutely brilliant if the deal does happen. A fit Sturridge feeding off his through balls would be a lethal combination.
Throw in the £5 million that we will get for Lucas on top to seal the deal.

Fantastic news! I think we can all agree that along with salah those three are going to add a hell of a lot of depth to our team, not to mention metal. A lot of people ate calling for us to sign a top striker but looking back at last season. goal scoring really wasn't the problem.
I do believe you need a 20+ guy if you want to win the league. in 1996! I've thought about this and that harks back to the days of playing 2 up front with one of those being an ariel threat while the other is fast and skillfull. (20+) our team looks very different know with 8/ 9 players who can play in our forward line and can reach double figures. Mani could easily have scored 20 without injury and international duty last term. If we sign these players I honestly think we have our biggest chance of winning prem yet. And with the general age of our squad we could reign supreme once again.

14 Jul 2017 18:35:42
Great signings if they happen, I have many questions over the fees and such, but considering how crazy this transfer window has been I can accept that. After all, after Man City spent 50 million on an average Kyle Walker, I have no doubts fees will continue to soar to ridiculous lengths. This transfer window has been utterly ridiculous. Football has been taken over by money, I used to believe that youth development and patience had its place in Football, but those times are no more. A shame.

Keita, happy with this signing, although I'm wondering who will leave considering how many centre mid we already have at the club. We are overloaded with them.

Van Dijk, fingers crossed this turns out to be the big signing that we have needed in the centre of defence. He's a big lad, quick and is very comfortable on the ball. Issues with concentration, etc, but a definite upgrade on Lovren and possibly even Matip. Although, we now have three centre backs with suspect injury history (less so in Dijk's case) and Joe Gomez might very well be considering his options.

Robertson, stupid signing. He is suspect in every department, but Klopp clearly sees something in the lad, believes that are tools he can develop. Let's hope so, otherwise, it will be another season of Milner (I love the guy for his work ethic and willingness to play out of position) cutting onto his right foot when a left footed cross is the preferred option.

Great job Macca. You have been a great source of information. I wish you all the best to you and your family.

True, scoring goals wasn't a problem. Sturridge if miraculously stays fit will score 20 goals in a season. But whether he stays fit is another thing altogether . If we do get those 3 signings I for one would be extremely pleased with our transfer window. More pace, a proper left back, a proven, quality centre back and potentially a beast of a midfielder on a cheeky let's get him
now whatever the cost before someone else buys him. And let's not forget Solanke could prove to be an absolute bargain striker. Looked good against Tranmere. YNWA.

47.) 14 Jul 2017
14 Jul 2017 19:25:25
Goal scoring was only a problem when teams parked the bus and then beat us with only 2 or 3 shots of their own compared to our 20+.

Thanks Macca. I got told today that we have been speeking ro southampton and have now put a £60 mil bid in which will be accepted. Also said Keita will be £67m in total not sure about addons and will be confirmed next thursday or friday. Hope its true what i got told. He knows people inside the club and told me about the Salah deal when it looked like it was off.

Take no notice Ed002.

You're information is invaluable and I for one really respect your knowledge of the game.

I've said from the off, both VVD and Kieta won't happen. I have never hoped so much in my life that I am wrong. Now with your post Macca it is making me wonder and believe something will be done, thanks for your incredible information mate. Great to see you post again :) .

15 Jul 2017 00:24:32
With kieta arriving, could we be losing coutinho. i was expecting him to drop into midfield with salah coming. not meaning to sound negative. but nervous now. just can't see why we would need him if a big player was not leaving.

Vvd had to sign didn't he? What would've been most embarrassing would've been NOT landing him. I always thought kieta was pie in the sky but it looks good doesn't it!

If all these rumours are true
Along with solanke and salah, then, according to the eds we have a few players to unload before there is room for them all.
Can I just ask, as of today, how many available places do we have in our squad? Who is most likely to make way? I guess what I'm asking is how many players do we have to sell before the four listed above can join? Sorry if this has been asked but obviously I missed it.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think you understand the nature of a squad. The point is they have to be unloaded because otherwise you will be paying players who are not able to play, not that you have to make space in the squad.}

15 Jul 2017 08:38:57
Good to see so much love for Macca following his post. Let's hope it stays that way if anything changes and any of the deals don't make it over the line.
I share the concerns of one or two on here. VVD and Keira will see a big outlay in terms of funds. Can we do this without one or two big sales? I do fear Coutinho might be on his way, but genuinely hope I am wrong.

Hey Ed002 if Keita goes through does that mean Liverpool are prepared to lose Coutinho and Can as spending 140GBP on two players (70 each for VVD and Keita) doesn't seem feasible to me as its not the Liverpool way.
Thanking you hope you enjoy to the fullest in your Harlem of ''wives''. Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - I would not try to complicate matters but if players are added a space needs to be created in the squad.}

78.) 15 Jul 2017
15 Jul 2017 13:37:41
Fair enough ed1. I don't know how clubs are run and the nature of the size of squads. I just remember ed saying if we want to sign players then others have to leave. Before salah signed I think someone said we can add two players before we have to sell. Hence me thinking we can only have so many players in our squad. As it stands today, can we sign all four without letting others go now? How many players do we need to sell?

{Ed001's Note - we just have to leave players out of the squad, but it does mean that they would then be difficult to sell for any kind of reasonable price. I know of a couple of sports lawyers that have been consulted when a player has been left out of a team's squad, due to the club being in breach of contract and the player believing that would make it possible to have the contracts ripped up. As far as I know no one has actually tested out the theory yet, but it is not a good idea to put players into a position where they will be unhappy anyway.}

79.) 15 Jul 2017
15 Jul 2017 17:09:06
Thanks ed, very insightful. I suppose the down side of having a large squad of senior players is that the youngsters can suffer. Not making squad often. Some fans will complain that our young talent aren't getting enough games and at the same time blast the manager for not bringing in x number of "top players"
Thanks again, put my mind to rest.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}
