Apparently Klopp looking at Southampton's Romeu as a potential replacement for Lucas if or when he goes. what's Eds opinion on Romeu.

{Ed001's Note - good player.}

Agree4 Disagree0

Where would he play though? We already have Hendo and Can to play in his position even if Lucas goes. And are we not looking at Keita as well?

09 May 2017 13:57:35
Great if there's any truth in it, be a good start to transfer dealings!

Very good player. As for Hendo, his heel condition is worrying and we cannot wait for him to get healthy and play a run of games due to this. He needs to be eased back in and Romeu is the type of player we need.

09 May 2017 14:47:37
Hendo is not a stopper and shouldn't play at the base ( he has no attributes to play that deeper role) Romeu is a decent player but why not Stewart? They will replace Romeu with Stewart and in two years we will buy him back. It would a joke!

Got to be honest, this is getting a bit embarrassing now! Every season we just go back to Southampton and sign a player or two off them for a massively inflated fee. Yes Romeu looks a decent player, will he transform us. probably not. If this is true then we clearly learn nothing, Romeu is a decent player but again he plays well because of how Southampton set up, we have plent of players who can get a foot in and pass it sideways, we don't have enough ball carriers with pace who can dribble past players and play clinical passes. We need better than Romeu and hopefully it's just paper talk.

Henderson is finished imo.

Benny, while I'm hoping you're wrong, what you're suggesting may actually happen. It's a permanent condition and bringing him on and off the field according to the condition of the heel throughout the season, may actually become a disruptive influence rather provide any benefit to the team's performance. It's a pity. Just yesterday there were posts about players from decades ago, and I would place Henderson right in there with some of the toughest, most dedicated and professional of LFC players. But a long term injury is just that, and not much can be done about it.

In terms of the OP, if Lucas leaves, then he definitely needs to be replaced. We need a holding player to face certain teams and styles of play. I'd go for Oriol Romeu without any doubt. He was well rated at Barcelona (but blocked by Sergio Busquets to the first team), and bought by Chelsea to replace a certain Michael Essien. Maybe he's just finally hitting his stride because Barcelona supposedly want him back.

I've not seen it with this lad, nothing more than bog standard and Saints would rinse us for every penny again.
Paredes looks like a better player to me.

09 May 2017 17:50:33
Cheers ra. Basically summed it up for me, because I was to lazy.
He is a back up player now, and the sooner klopp pulls of the bandade (remove captaincy) from him, we can move on. Romeu is actually class. Reminds me of medel but better in the air.

{Ed001's Note - he is nothing like Medel, doesn't have the range of passing and is far worse in the air. Medel is excellent in the air, particularly for his height, Romeu's heading is something he himself admits to be a weakness. Medel is a playmaker, Romeu has not got the vision or range of passing for that. He is excellent at breaking up play, but lacks a lot in setting up play.}

Good player but since we get linked with any half decent Saints player, I won't get too excited until I see something solid materialise.
