AS Klopp does his business in the beginning on the window, do we look likely to sign Emil Forsberg in the coming days if we do? He's been in great form for RB Leipzig.

I personally love him as a player. He is a cracking player in the mold of Coutinho / Iniesta.

Too slow for the premier league. You don't get time on the ball here. He's a slower version of Lallana but not as good.

Oh my god.
You have just destroyed the player before he has arrived. Not that where signing him but iniesta? Coutinho. isn't even in his league.
Hes not either, mold. size. Name. Skill.
Just a player who could help the team as simple as.
Thats how you keep expectations low. We all thought mane was a waste and then how much better is it to get such a success. Rather than say this llayer is ala etc etc and then your left wanting.
Sure i remember rossiter geting compared to scholes, gerrard, keane. Wheres the lad now?
Just back off and wait if we sign someone then fingers crossed there useful for us and bring heaothy competition for places 😊
Thats all. Sorry for biting ya head off.

Are you sure Harry? You have spend a large portion of your time telling us that we need a replacement for Mane and his pace will be missed when he goes to AFCON but then you post this and now want Forsberg who has little pace.

How do you get so much time to watch so many players?

To be fair Chilean red, between the ages of 16 and 20 I used to watch about 4 games a day on average. I was a regular follower of Roma, Leverkusen and Lyon as well as Liverpool during those years.
Nowadays I barely find the time to watch 1 or 2 a week though and they're usually just whatever is on in the pub haha. Shouldn't question somebodies ability to watch a lot of games though. The internet makes it not only possible, but easy to follow multiple leagues and teams.
Whether or not Harry does that, we can only speculate. It is unfair to insinuate that he is simply making his opinion up though. Forsberg by all accounts is certainly a good player. From videos though I probably wouldn't say he is Iniesta-esque!

It's more the in depth analysis. I am a scout myself (part time) for a lower league team (I won't mention who) I know many others. To make such calls, you really need to focus on a players movement off the ball etc, which the tv cameras don't often allow you to do, you often watch a game a few times (if it's been filmed) if you can't make it in person, even when i've been asked to review footage etc of other team, I barely get a chance to monitor that many players. I previously worked in Australia and Chile doing it fulltime. I personally just find it unlikely given my experience that an average Joe working presumably 35+ hours a week, having a social life, can watch a several players teams week in week out and know how good they are to make such claims.
(My internet dropped for a second eds, if this is a repeat post please ignore it)

I have seen him play and tho a good player, Forsberg is nothing like Coutinho or Iniesta, not even close.
