Ed002 top round up of LFC transfer interest thank you.
It seems unlikely that we will pursue a defender in Jan unless this Sven Botman rumour grows legs, I’m unsure.
It will be the talking point at the end of the season though, because if Liverpool lost the league to a very poor Man Utd or someone else, then the fact they didn’t complete a deal for a CB last summer will be heavily criticised by myself and most of the reds I know. If Klopp wanted D. Carlos I trust he would have worked out well, and we should have offloaded Matip and Origi then to help fund the deal.

Agree3 Disagree0

D Carlos was priced 60m, how on earth would selling Matip and origi get anywhere near half that amount? We needed an attacker and cab but we couldn’t afford both. Without VVD we were still ok but it’s just a freak of nature to get both cb’s out for the season.

Keep the faith, Klopp knows what he is doing I expect a cb arriving this month.

Everyone keeps saying how good Michael Edwards is and we should get a statue made of him. But jokes aside this really is the time for him to shine. Go sell some players and bring in the funds!

"will be heavily criticised by myself and most of the reds I know" - I simply don't know how Klopp will sleep at night.
Are we talking about the same Klopp that made us European, World and Premiership champions?
What's that club motto, You'll Never Something Something?
Short memories, eh?

{Ed001's Note - it's embarrassing Flash.}

Agree longthing. Time to be ruthless, the defence is on its ass. In my opinion Our best midfielder is playing CB.

02 Jan 2021 10:54:09
Michael Edwards is going to have to go earn those wages once again this Jan cos we need a CB for sure. Can we get one? Mr Edwards, over to you.

02 Jan 2021 11:39:39
We want a cb, we don't 'need' one. I don't think we'll sign anybody this month, I reckon we'll leave it til the summer and I'm fine with that. I'd love to see us sign one don't get me wrong but money doesn't grow on trees and who are we going to get who's affordable for us right now? This isn't football manager.

Well said flash.

i miss football. and i mean like it was. before fans demanded big money signings. top of the league, with an injury crisis, with youth team players stepping up and helping the 'team! ' gwt through a difficult patch. i mean, isn't that the nature of a team? who cares if we don't buy a CB this Jan.

what has changed in peoples minds? expectation and reality. instant gratification over building and long term solutions. its times like this i wish i loved rugby as a kid not football. : (.

02 Jan 2021 12:12:16
I think we do need one mate, have you seen Williams and Phillips play? Joking aside Klopp will find someone I am sure. There are clubs out there more skint than us.

02 Jan 2021 12:36:13
I think it will all boil down to what Klopp thinks. Whether he thinks he wants one or he needs one. If he just wants one and he gets told there’s no money I suppose his reaction will differ to if he thinks we need one. The owners also now know the financial difference and rewards for success and not winning things. I’m sure they will be happy with another successful season and the rewards that would bring.

Wow some fierce reactions there, good to see the passion!
My passion is LFC and I want to see us win the league for a second season on the bounce, but Mark my words, if Fabinho one of our best midfielders currently playing CB due to a raft of injuries also gets injured, then we are truly foooked and won’t win eff all, there is nothing embarrassing about me making that point Ed001 and I often wonder why you are so passionate about slagging off your fellow reds supporters.

{Ed001's Note - because you have no idea of the meaning of the word supporter. You are too busy whining that you are not getting what you want, instead of being grateful for what you already have. You seem to think this is a game where a transfer can just be made no matter what, forgetting conveniently that we tried all summer to buy a centre-back but no one would deal with us due to the fact we have no cash up front to use. It is embarrassing how self-entitled and lacking in patience you are. We won the league last season and still you are not happy.

This is not a normal season, the pandemic has ensured we are financially crippled in the market. We still have to pay off the transfers we brought in in order to win the Premier League and Champions League etc that we won, plus payments on the stadium upgrades, but we have an empty stadium which is simply costing us money right now, rather than earning. We are close to doing what Leeds did under Ridsdale already, with the outlay in the summer, we need to be just making do and mend. If that means we don't win the league this season, then so be it. Life will go on and the club will be in a better place to win again in the long term, rather than mortgaging everything on a win now roll of the dice, that still might not pay off.

Hopefully we can offload a few fringe players to bring in some money to use, but even that is dodgy as the buys of Jota etc were based on factoring in future transfer income to use to pay their fees. We certainly don't want to end up in a position where we have to offload the players we want to keep, other than the odd promising youngster such as Hoever, to make payments.

As for passionate about slagging off fellow reds, you need to grow up, or do one. This is why I don't bother with this site much, you can't disagree with people like you or they get offended. However we are expected to put up with your constant whining and slagging off of the club we love and not respond. Amazing how it is always just what you want that you think matters. Well it doesn't work like that. If you don't want to be slagged off, don't slag others off. Until that day, you really are in no position to complain, though I am sure you will as even though your team is top of the league you are complaining like a teenager who didn't get everything he wanted at Christmas.}
