If this is the way our transfer situation has started before the window has even opened then I have got news for everyone.

Our transfer window has ended before it even started.

Anyone who still believes there is still a chance to to sign VVD need some TLC. Firstly, we are not going to be able to afford VVD now, whether we were able to afford him while tapping him up was also not going to be likely as all we were doing was fending off interest in VVD from Chelsea and City by getting the player on our side and in return have Southampton left with no option but to accept what we were willing to offer.

It turns out that Southampton were not that stupid in the end. Now they can say, how about £90m for VVD. Game over.

Yeah and have a player who doesn't wsnt to be thete and potentially miss out on 50 mil, which is way over the odds.

All he needs is one bad injury or one bad season and that value plumets.

Nows the time to sell and they no it. If liverpool, city or chelsea get priced out they will all just go elsewhere and won't need him again.

The proof is in the pudding. If we are not willing to pay the asking price for Salah then there most likely would have been no chance we would have been willing to pay the asking price for VVD, even if we did not tap him up.

I really hope FSG have the whip out. Those blamingFSG for this mess need to seek help. Yes they employ the staff running this club but doubt FSG employ them and pay them to screw them and the club over. It is not like FSG are sitting in player negotiations or advised Dalglish to put on a shirt supporting Suarez when Suarez made and absolute mockery of this club. Dalglish lost his job because of adding feul to the Suarez fire.

Would not surprise me if FSG are planning on taking the broom and sweeping clean again. If they employ incompetence again then the whip should be out for them. One cannot keep on making the same mistakes over and over again.

Come on Max, you're better than this. A month ago I looked forward to reading your posts but this negativity is ruining you objectivity.

We have already signed Solanke, we are still in with a slim chance of Van Dijk (as much as I disagree with it) and Salah looks very likely to be done soon.

Chamberlain interest has gone nowhere so maybe that explains the Emre Mor/ Gelson Martins rumoured interest. Both of those guys would be a massive improvement to our depth in pace/ quality up front.

Robertson or Mendy could still happen as well and I also wouldn't entirely rule out a midfielder such as Keita and a new senior keeper to replace Manninger. Who knows, we may even still add Pereira if Clyne is moved on.

I know it is disappointing to have a deal seemingly wrapped up, and then snatched away, but it is not worth a total meltdown. I look forward to reading your opinions again when you have calmed down a tad mate :)

We get it max, you want us to sign VVD.
Some of us don't believe our future rests in signing a defender who has been injured for 6 months.

09 Jun 2017 19:31:57
MK, the club has been made a complete mockery of, again. You can just imagine if we approach other clubs about their players. The first thing on their mind will be, have Liverpool had any contact with our player without our permission? There is your price, now pay it or kindly F off.

Some may think this situation is not serious. Liverpool just cannot seem to stay out of trouble.

I really could not be bothered with the transfer window now. What the club has done has ruined every last bit of excitement I had.

09 Jun 2017 19:53:57
VVD isn't happening. For obvious reasons.
Salah isn't happening. See above.
Mendy isn't happening. If we're haggling over Salah, then £40m for a left back is a non starter specially since Chelsea are sniffing around.
Keita isn't going to happen.
Dortmund aren't going to let Mor go.
If we won't pay £35m for Salah then £45m for Gelson Martin is a non starter.

If (and that's a big if), we do any more business this summer, it'll likely be free transfers and woeful players like Keane or Grey.

Why would they say that Max? Just crawl back under your rock until September and leave the complicated stuff to the big boys.

"I really could not be bothered with the transfer window now. What the club has done has ruined every last bit of excitement I had. "

Max, you're acting like a fully fledged drama queen now.

I think he needs a smacked bottom and to go and sit it out in his room.

09 Jun 2017 20:56:34
If this is considered the worst it can get and the window hasn't even opened yet, then surely by the time the window open it can only get better!?

09 Jun 2017 20:58:43
It's got nothing to to with excitement but has everything to do with professionalism and conducting business effectively and legally, which we haven't done. So yeah, the transfer window is effectively ruined because there is absolutely no way that we will see top players coming here.

09 Jun 2017 22:56:48
Max, calm down lad, it will all turn out okay .

09 Jun 2017 19:19:59
One of your wives Ed. How many do you have or had. Greedy.

You know, I just read a flashback about our signings in the summer of 2010. We signed Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky, and Danny Wilson. The suicide squad!

Give it a bit of time for all this the crap Liverpool got themselves tangled with (like tapping up and court cases etc) to blow over, then sort themselves out internally; and I'm sure we'll sign some good players during this window.

One thing I can say is that we do have time on our side here.

Someone give max a hug. The window isn't open yet pal, no point in giving up before you begin.
