Hi Eds if we were going to sign a CB (I'm not saying we are) who would you prefer us to sign as a realistic player?

{Ed025's Note - keane of burnley maybe?..

Agree0 Disagree3

Thank you. wouldn't be a bad shout.

{Ed025's Note - he will only cost about £30m ted...bloody hell my first house in wavertree cost £5000...the world has gone mad mate.. :)

I'd rather we line up with you as our new CB ed025. Keane is a die hard man united fan and I don't want one of those in the team. Plus he's poor as well. That too.

{Ed025's Note - i was half decent in my time FMS and to be honest i cant be any worse than klavan and lovren, carragher, fowler and macca were all everton fans mate but once you sign for a club your alliegences change, i think hes decent myself mate..

Difference is that Carragher, Fowler and Macca grew up at Liverpool and they always felt a loyal connection with the club, plus the rivalry is a friendly one between us and I think if you have family that are red you'll still want to do your best. Keane is a Man United supporter through and through, he's played for United and still wants to play for them. I don't believe that we could trust him and the crowd would be on his back the first mistake he makes (and he makes some shocking mistakes, sk it wouldn't take long for that to happen), for his own sake he should go somewhere else as he just wouldn't be welcome at Anfield because of his allegiance and because he has given it large in the papers how much he loves united and dislikes us, so he can't change those words now. The laughable thing is that the £30m for Keane makes whatever the package to sign VVD City have paid look cheap, given that Keane only looks ok (I won't say good! ) because Burnley stick ten men behind the ball and when you examine his ability and scrutinise him, he falls well short of even being mediocre.

{Ed025's Note - its all about opinions i suppose FMS but i think your looking to deep int the man utd thing mate..these are professionals..

04 Jun 2017 14:43:33
Keane? Cough cough. It is quite simple really, just rather give Gomez a run.

04 Jun 2017 14:47:15
Keane won't come cheap considering VVD is priced at £50 mill.

04 Jun 2017 14:49:59
Keane is a good player to the level of Everton. Not good enough for Liverpool 😎.

{Ed025's Note - how very dare you.. :)

04 Jun 2017 15:04:34
VVD is priced at more than £50m Harry.

Along with his £10m a year contract.

If we do sign VVD then I really will not know what to say. Then VVD will still have to baby Milner and have a look at how Clyne runs up and down the pitch aimlessly.

Professional in the very loosest definition of the word, I would add. Thing is, if he was just a transient player at United who was dumped early on, like Beardsley, I'd not give it second thought as he would have no loyalty to them. But this is a nailed on die hard United fan and its a completely different issue as he's said that they're the only team bar Burnley that he's loyal to as a suppprter and he's said that is for life. For me that rules him out. Notwithstanding the fact that he's just not very good which should be enough in any case. (Won't even mention the 25% sell on that United would get out of it. )

04 Jun 2017 15:19:30
I hate to say this, but I'm not convinced that Gomes is a first choice CB and that's what we need.

04 Jun 2017 15:27:32
I agree. All coz we did not cough up £12 mill for Chilwell last summer and did not replace Sakho with a proper CB last season. We are in need coz we not upgrade last time around. Yesterday's £25 mill is today's £50 mill. Quality remains the same.

04 Jun 2017 15:39:25
Harry, it does not work that way because if Lovren £20m two seasons ago was one of the best CB's in the League, came to Liverpool and has not lived up to expectation although he has improved then how can one say that VVD at some obscene price, being made the most expensive defender of all time and along the way, becoming one of the highest earners in the EPL going to guarantee that VVD will be any better than Lovren when both are from Soton?

Playing for LFC compared to Soton is at one massive different level. Ask any Soton player we have signed, especially Clyne :-)

04 Jun 2017 16:50:14

I agree there are no guarantees. But it is for this the scouts are paid. To have proper analysis of the player and where do they fit in with our current system, Do they posses all the attributes to succeed at the club. Are they an upgrade on the current one's.

What if Salah does a Markovic? He came with a reputation of the best young winger.

It's a gamble you take, In fact you must.

I am not crying out for VVD but after watching Lovren and Klavan I would love the club to sign one class CB.

04 Jun 2017 17:22:55
Comparing Salah with Markovic lol?

Marko had 1 half decent season where he scored/ assisted a handful of goals. Salah just hit double figures. You're clutching at straws Harry.

HOWEVER, I do agree about you final point re signing a centre back. I refuse to believe that there aren't better CBs available than VVD for less. Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A have more than a few!
