Hello evryone hope all is well, Eds I've just been told oxlade chamberlain is wanted by klopp for a central midfield role but also cover for the wing, can u let us know if uve heard anything on this? Thanks in advance for any post or reply Eds.

{Ed001's Note - it is for midfield he wants him but his ability to play on the wing in need is a bonus, yes.}

Agree1 Disagree3

Have we shown any interest in max meyer? He also is midfield and can play on wing and if sky sports news is to be believed could be considerably less than the ox.

{Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}

24 Jun 2017 17:18:24
Thanks again Ed001,the transfer makes a lot more sense to me now.

24 Jun 2017 17:23:29
Klopp can't have watched the humpings that Arsenal got when Ox played in centre midfield. Or the two recent internationals where he made Scotland look world class and was non existent against France. The lad just doesn't have the intelligence to play in centre midfield.

24 Jun 2017 17:31:09
Thanks ed001. Think meyer has real potential. Keep forgetting the ox is still only 23 could have his best years under klopps guidance and tutelage.

You know what I'm sick of the crap some people spout. Yes I don't rate ox but I'm not here slagging the lad off. What if klopp seen something in him that's vital to our new look midfield next season? Who here thought wini was gunna come and play central and be one of our best players? Maybe klopp feels we need more energy as a holding mid/ utility player to cover couts moving deeper? Who knows just getting tyred of reading this now. There is a reason these blokes get paid so much money cos they have the expertise to see what we don't. Before I get slatted everybody's entitled to an opinion and I too don't believe ox is the right move just a point about the negativity on here is getting beyond a joke.

24 Jun 2017 18:17:17
When you say 'vital' to our midfield Mick, I'm not sure what Ox brings to the table that is so vital, he's just not very good and every time he's played in the middle for Arsenal or England he has been terrible, simply because he's just not a centre midfield player, the man lacks the skills and intelligence to play there and you can't make silk purse out of a sows ear. As for negativity, given that we've blown our chances of getting a top class central defender and instead of going for a proper top class centre midfielder like Nany Keita, we're going for a half fit square peg for a round hole and then we wonder why teams can just wander through our midfield at will. There are simply no positives to signing Oxlade Chamberlain.

24 Jun 2017 18:27:08
Hanson it's not that we're not going for Keita, he was our number 1 target. It's that his club have no intentions of selling him and he isn't no desperate to move away. We can't just buy a player because we want him, if only it was that simple!

24 Jun 2017 18:33:37
Well said Mick. Its getting boring innit.

24 Jun 2017 19:07:30
Another issue with signing the Ox is that he will want fairly big wages, and if it doesn't work out for him at LFC, moving him on will be a little difficult as others may not be able to match his wages, and those who can probably wouldn't want him.

Example, if James Milner is to be moved on this window, who can afford his wages since the teams who can wouldn't want him, and that is with Milner playing fairly well!

24 Jun 2017 19:17:01
By the same token TIA19 you if you can't get the most capable player for the job, then don't then just go and waste money on a player patently not up to the job because its just repeating the same mistakes over and over again.

24 Jun 2017 19:35:13
Hansen do you not think we've moved on from them days?

We have a quality manager making the right signings. He knows what he's doing.

Do you know who he wants to sign? What his plans are for that player? Probably not. So wait til the season gets going with all the cogs in place and I'm telling you now you won't be disappointed.

24 Jun 2017 19:36:26
No, Alfi and Mick. What is getting boring is people slagging off others for having a different opinion than theirs. Currently, Ox is not good enough in any position he plays in and would start ahead of even Grujic in CM as he is that poor, end of.

Now, if Klopp wants to sign him cos he thinks he can make him better (something Klopp is universally admired for) then that is a separate issue and if he comes, i will be skeptical YET support him cos in the end, my opinion does not matter cos if Ox or any player does well, LFC will do well. Two things can be right at the same time. I know it's wierd but true.

24 Jun 2017 20:35:30
Ox would certainly start over Grujic, I cheered the signing of Gini and if Moreno is worth 15 million Ox is fine at 25.

24 Jun 2017 22:06:56
Amerigo, not in a million years but that's my opinion.

24 Jun 2017 22:50:38
Even when your opinion is the same as Micks and mine? Thing that gets boring is arguing with your own fans all the time.
you don't need rival fans anymore you get enough stick off your own.
So wind your neck in and show each other and the club some respect. This is one thing that needs to change to take us to the next level more than any signing.

Togetherness in everything Liverpool FC

Do you disagree with that?

24 Jun 2017 22:59:29
I agree with Mick, Alfie AND Brussels.

Negativity against potential signings is getting beyond a joke. Ok, you don't rate the Ox, we get it, we don't need daily reminders.
Secondly people keep whinging that others don't agree with their assessments of players.
Guess what? Not everyone has the same view and sometimes you just have to accept that truth. 🤝.

100% correct in my OPINION.
