If these two signings (salah and VVD) do come off it's the first time for a long time that we have gone up against the likes of Chelsea and City and actually came out on top when signing a player. Why is that? Is it because Ayre isn't handling negotiations? Is it the Klopp factor? Is it that we can just afford more now with the TV money? Just curious as I was sure VVD would end up elsewhere! (and he still might)

Klopp, CL and we also look like a side that's stable, playing good football and has the ability to get even better.

If we get even just 3 top players in at LW, CB and LB (looking likely for at least 2 of those) and hopefully Sturridge stays fit, we will be very tough to beat next year.

Feels like we have the momentum at the moment. Hopefully we have a great season next up and we keep moving forward.

Beating them to VVD certainly shows intent, that we can compete with the big boys, that we are looking to go one step forward forward and not sell our best players and move one step back.

CL football plays a huge part in it.

Coz we believe we will manage our books accordingly. FSG would like to give it one more go at the title, hence all the backing to Klopp.

Better to sign one or two for that price rather than 10.

Said it for years how can you commit 60 mil on a ton of plahers but can't work jt for one. Shows you can.

Apparently Klopp has been a big part of negotiations and in contact with vvd and his representatives.

Because we're massively over paying and the player wants to come.
Van dijk is a great improvement on lovren. 60 million and 200k wages if true is disgraceful for a central defender. However football has gone in a direction that Is madness.

Liverpool won't be Paying anyone 200 k anytime soon!

05 Jun 2017 19:13:39
If he wanted 200k he would be off to city.

Think he knows if he plays his cards right, its madrid next. they'll need a new cb in about 4 years.

He wants to play for klopp thenim goibg for 135/ 50k

Nice signing on fee though.

In reply to the OP, this is the imaginary conversation that took place and resulted in VVD, Salah and others being pursued and signed:

FSG (Werner) : Congratulations Jurgen. Job well done. We're so happy you're with us. But you know something, don't you? We finished fourth, and that's great, but I hope next year we'll aim a bit higher? Maybe win the League? I want to see it in my lifetime, and not for my grandkids to see it. We've spent enough money for it so far, you know.

Klopp: Thank you, thank you. There is nothing special that happened. The boys worked hard all season long. We had injuries in January. February we were recovering from injuries, and we went back on track in March. Of course, if I had more players of good quality then maybe things could have been different. We had the weakest team in the top 6, but we finished fourth. Look at how much Mourinho spent and we still finished above them. And if Phil had not gotten injured and Sadio had not gone to Africa, we could have finished above Guardiola also.

FSG: Okay Jurgen. Tell me what you need. Tell me what you need to win the League and make it at least to the semis in the UCL?

Klopp: I need better defenders, I want to strengthen the midfield and I need a striker to bang in the goals, Daniel is not dependable to be ready to play every game. I hear VVD wants to join us. And Keita is the perfect player for us.

FSG: VVD? 70 Million? Are you crazy? OMG. This is Comolli and Andy Carroll happening all over again! Jurgen you're not smoking funny stuff are you?

Klopp: No. Actually I'm very confident. We have a great group of players. We are just missing 3 or 4 really good players and the young players are developing nicely. It's just in this moment, I feel that if you want to win the EPL title and the UCL, you have to be ready to spend like the others.

FSG: Okay Jurgen. We'll give you what you want. I hope you know what you're doing.

Klopp: Thank you. In this moment, I am very confident. Liverpool deserves to be winning titles. I am confident we can do it.
