With the talk of Ox, Robertson, Keita and VVD signing for us by the end of the window. I'd like to hear people's thoughts on how well we've done (if we sign these players on top of Salah and solanke) because personally I think it would be a very good window and not only would we added quality and depth we'd also give ourselves options to play different formations and experiment, something I think would be a key against teams which are harder to break down. So I would be very happy if that was our business this window. Then next summer I'd add a quality LB, Striker and GK (depending on Karius and Mignolet this season) looking forward to the new season YNWA.

Personally think the pressure is on Bobby to step up the striker role, I'd love to see him smash it as I believe he does have real quality but consistent goal scoring is an area he's been lacking so if that doesn't change then maybe a forward in January or next summer. Though hopefully out of the 5 strikers we have at the moment one can step up consistently, saving us big money.

Agree on Bobby HX. As brilliant as he is he needs to see the goal a bit more. Tonight was a prime example passing instead of shooting. A true goal scorer would've had a hat trick tonight it was there for him. He has it in him he just needs a mind change from provider to scorer.

I'd agree with that 100%.

As exciting as a couple of those signings are, personally I'm disappointed we didn't go for a world class LB. I'd agree that MIlner did enough to deserve another go there and Robertson may well prove to be that signing. But, we have money and CL football, something that no the guaranteed next summer window, this was the opportunity and feels missed.

I'm more interested, as none of those make me feel wow, what is going to happen to our 'talents' like TAA, Grujic, Gomez, Ward, Ojo, Wilson, Woodburn etc. I'm far more excited to see more of them and if they become their hype over Robertson or Ox.

{Ed025's Note - i suppose some people are never happy then max, i think if you get VVD, keita as well as salah and solanke it will be a tremendous window for the reds and even robertson will improve the side, i dont wish to be rude but you sound like a spoilt brat to me who will never be happy...sad really mate..

I love how fluid our attack can be, mane firmino and salah with coutinho behind is just crazy!
If we get Robertson, VVD and keita I'd be pinching myself to wake up. 3/ 5 garunteed starters. And young promising striker. And a natural lb suited to the prem. what more could you ask for.

14 Jul 2017 23:00:47
Great window if all come off.

14 Jul 2017 23:00:55
Sense from a blue Ed? What's the world coming to? ;-)

{Ed025's Note - i dont want us to absolutely walk the league HT i want at least a bit of competition mate.. :)

14 Jul 2017 23:01:35
Have to agree with Ed025 if we got said players he mentioned I'd be delighted with this window.

14 Jul 2017 23:11:12
You might have to wait until next season to walk the league Ed! You lot will do well in the championship ;-)

{Ed025's Note - we shall see my friend, the city belongs to the blues now HT and our time is very afraid.. :)

If they all sign it will be the best window in years! Robertson deserves a chance, just because he doesn't have a foreign name and cost a fortune doesn't mean he will be a failure. Solid young full back in my opinion and as posted recently, we've had some brilliant full backs on the cheap from lesser clubs. Rob Jones, Steve Finnan, JA Risse. let's hope he can be added to that list in the future! Exited by the news but not getting ahead of myself, nothing is final on any of the dealings yet.

If we do manage to get VVD and Keita, I'd say that not only will it have been a successful summer window, but we'd be on our way to becoming real threats for EPL titles and a European powerhouse once again. Everything points in that direction. A hungry ambitious competent manager with a long term contract, a squad of young players with unquestioned individual skills and a style of football that is always a pleasure to watch. Sounds like hyperbole and exaggeration, but that's what I think.

14 Jul 2017 23:49:57
Thanks for the personal snipe 0025, very big of you. Thought it was ok to reply with honest opinions on the banter page? If Robertson is the big signing for the weakest position we have, then we're doing really well then. Keita has had one season to warrant £70m and Ed002, an ED I do respect, doesn't rate VVD which considering our public statement seems to further the embarrassment. Salah looks good, but was third choice
But yeah I guess not being moist for that makes me spoilt?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are doing what they can.}

Put it this way if we sign those players realistically a good season would be 1) Winning FA or EFl cup (or both, unlikely though) 2) having a serious title challenge (hopefully we can win the PL, but wouldn't be too disappointed with a top 3 finish) 3) getting out of the group stages of CL (should we get past the qualifying round, still feel like we could get a QF spot) 4) try and give TAA, Grujic, Woodburn and Gomez a real chance next season (as I feel it's vital to play young players and they are our 4 best youngsters) some people might think that's too ambitious or not ambitious enough but I think that would be a very good season.

Max your response kinda proves his point tbf, salah third choice or not is an excellent catch and ed1 has been wrong on occasion. If we pull off vvd and keita and keep our best players i seriously think we have a squad that could challenge. I makes me moist 😆

Dont let mk's negativity about keita's one season cloud your judgement. Ronaldo before he went to united was a one season wonder and look how that turned out. He is a talented young man who will just keep getting better and better. If we don't get him bayern or dortmund will snap him up and it will be another one we will look at in years to come and say damn that was another one that escaped us.

Vvd while being a bit adventurous at times is built like a barn door and could add the power at the back we have missed since sami retired. I like the fact that we have identified the missing pieces to the jigsaw as klipperty sees it and he has klopped to his guns in their pursuit albeit illegal at times but he knows what he wants 😂.
