If LFC wants to succeed in this coming season and in CL, we need to keep Coutinho. Without him, we lack creativity and just nothing's happening. Take the CP game for example, first half not much was going on, he came on and boom 2 goals, we win! He runs the show. Also when he was supposed to stay home and rest because of illness on the day against Stoke, he drove there, came in at half time, won the game for us! You don't sell a player like that!

As brilliant as he is, he isn't irreplaceable and is just one player and as ed002 says players are transient.
Salah, Keita and Robertson coming in and coutinho going out arguably improves the first team/ squad.

21 Jul 2017 11:09:11
So who's replacing him then. ?

21 Jul 2017 11:27:17
He's been replaced by Salah already. We lose one of our front 3, and sign a new player for the front 3.

As a midfielder he played there about 5 times in the last 2 seasons so a replacement isn't really necessary. I suspect we will push through the Keita deal though.

21 Jul 2017 11:38:11
Salah and keita.

21 Jul 2017 11:39:18
Naby Keita is Countinho's replacement.

21 Jul 2017 11:40:03
I'm not even sure if Coutinho is our best player to be honest. I think on last seasons performances Mane was better. That being said he is class and needs to stay at Liverpool and rip up the Champions League.

Mikey, whether he is irreplaceable or not is not the point here, IMO. The point is that we simply cannot sell our best players if we want to compete in the CL and PL, something we have a great chance of doing at the moment. We tried this "he is not irreplacaceable" stuff with Xabi, Torres and Suarez before, for the pathetically disastrous results that we now know of.

In fact, he is actually irreplaceable as he's been here for 4 seasons and is now an integral part of our system to the point of the team being built around him. What player can come in and fill that void without missing a bit at the moment? Even Keita won't be able to do that. Couts has never angled for a move even tho, Ed02 has said he is open to it, he is still loyal to LFC. Couts is not for sale at any price and we should stick to that mantra this summer. Next summer? We shall see.

How can you mention Suarez and Torres and say there wasn't a replacement? Suarez more than replaced the Torres that left. May not have been the direct plan but i feel was the case.

Sarah isn't fit to tie Coutinho's laces, don't get me wrong I think he'll be a good signing but is he's nowhere near Cout's level.

21 Jul 2017 13:10:20
Sarah who?

21 Jul 2017 13:12:03
Who is Sarah and when did we sign him/ her?

21 Jul 2017 13:17:29
Sounds like we should bin Sarah off if she's not fit enough to lace some boots 😡.

21 Jul 2017 13:26:04
Sorry HX Red, but if you're talking about Sarah the official LFC boot-lacer then your hypothesis is completely wrong.

21 Jul 2017 13:38:44
He is the best player in the team by some miles and I feel sad and sorry for those who thinks Adam running Lallana and Wijnaldum will replace this little man!
People need to ask themselves why does he drop into the midfield every now and then! Simply coz we look like a flat tyre without his vision and creativity!

21 Jul 2017 13:53:51
Look Sarah and Keith are both potential valuable assets to our club but Phil's shoe-lacing skills can never be replaced.

21 Jul 2017 14:14:28
On top of it, if he did leave we would see a dip of form from Bobby I believe. The two of them have a great understanding on and off the pitch. Klopp should consider that too!

21 Jul 2017 16:48:05
You can quite easily sell a player as good as coutinho, the trick is getting the right players in afterwards to strengthen the team, something Liverpool hasn't always been good at I admit, but I stand by what I say there, Salah, Keita and Robertson in and coutinho out still makes for a stronger team/ squad.
I love watching coutinho and hope he stays but I have seen many players come and go over the years and he will just be another sooner or later, nothing to get hysteric over.
