I’d be disappointed if we made no move for Sancho and a rival got him. Good enough to start, home grown and not long turned 21. Could be here for a decade. Even if it meant cashing in on Mane I would. He’d be expensive sure but good players are. We had one league cup in 10 years until we broke all kinds of transfer records for a CB GK and a DM and won a CL and PL because of it.

I for one do not want Sancho. Not doubting his ability or anything but I like that in the main, with a few exceptions, we would rather polish a rough diamond than get an expensive player. The reality is, we are not owned by bottomless pit owners so we have to deal in the next rung down the ladder, and in the main, with a few exceptions (Keita) we have done exceptionally well. Therefore I will leave it to the manager and other staff involved and let them decide who the best player we can get for the money available and support no matter what. We all want Mbappe, Haarland etc but we do not buy in that bracket, we have to hope our scouting staff have seen enough on the other players that can be improved, so let's just support whoever they bring in, because let's face it, not many was over the moon to get Robertson when we got him and look how that has faired.

06 Jun 2021 02:00:50
Is Sancho really all that?

{Ed0666's Note - I just texted Eds 001 exactly the same thing. Get out of my head Barry!

06 Jun 2021 03:52:14
I mean, he’s better than raphina, and a lot of people are somehow very excited by the prospect of getting him. If we are looking at it from the perspective of raphina would apparently be a replacement for salah (which is crazy if you ask me), I know who I would prefer to come in if we were to lose one of salah or mane. I know in terms of the fee, there’s a huge disparity, but for me there’s a big disparity in quality as well.

{Ed001's Note - in what way is Sancho better than Raphinha? I have seen nothing about him that makes him anywhere near as good as Raphinha. Sancho is ridiculously overrated for a player that can only make an impression if he comes on as a late sub against tired legs.}

06 Jun 2021 03:05:28
Why Ed0666 there's loads of room in here😃.

{Ed0666's Note - That’s because you’re wife and her sister just left mate 😂

06 Jun 2021 04:50:51
You two need to get a room.

{Ed001's Note - they did that and paid by the minute, only cost them 2 minutes and that was with them both having a shower and shave afterwards.}

06 Jun 2021 05:36:38
Lol, eww, what a thought first thing in the morning. 🤭.

06 Jun 2021 07:10:22
Your talking silly again Ed001 it was 3 minutes.

{Ed001's Note - stop boasting Bazza, we all know I was exaggerating and it was actually 1.}

06 Jun 2021 08:18:06
Lads thus sounds like the crying game.

06 Jun 2021 08:38:10
Grinch this “we make stars not buy them” philosophy has resulted in one league title in 30 years, it doesn’t work. There seems to be this myth that Robertson was a nobody when he signed, outside of Rose and Bertrand he was the best left back in the league at the time.

06 Jun 2021 09:06:36
If we had the money for sancho (which we don’t) I would rather buy a few players like Saul plus Raphinha.

{Ed077's Note - do you know how much Saul's current salary is at Atleti?
€300k a week. I think it's a bit too much to say that you could afford Saul plus Raphinha with the "Sancho money"

06 Jun 2021 09:16:09
Absolute nonsense davidK, Andy had a good cross on him, but he was suspect defensively when he was with Hull. Even when he broke through with us, he was still weak at closing crosses down. Its true, we generally don't operate at the top table as far as transfer fees go, excluding a couple of recent transfers in key positions (Ali and Virg) .

06 Jun 2021 09:17:51
Not sure I get all the hype over Sancho either tbh and remember only way him or Raphinha arrives is as a Salah or Mane replacement as Ed002 keeps advising us. We need to sell to buy which is fair enough after the C.V. we’ve had. I did ask were the Konate money come from but it didn’t get posted.

06 Jun 2021 09:55:54
Trent is suspect defensively for us yet he’s still the best in the league in his position. Robertson wasn’t as good as he is now at Hull obviously but he was at worst a top 5 left back in the league. Look at his performances vs us at the KC or at Old Trafford/ Emirates. He was good for Dundee United had 2 good PL seasons under his belt, playing well for his country. We hardly plucked him from non league.

06 Jun 2021 10:13:04
“he’s better than raphina”

For context (according to whoscored), Raphina scored 6 in the league and Sancho scored 8, Raphinha set up 9 and Sancho 11, Raphinha arguably did that in a slightly tougher league. Not a lot in it if you ask me.

06 Jun 2021 10:41:22
A slightly tougher league, am sorry the bundesliga defending is terrible atm. The mid table prem league sides would easily beat the mid table German sides.

06 Jun 2021 10:45:28
I think Sancho is a good player myself, plus he’s young and English. But yeah ridiculously over hyped and priced.
I would probably have him at LFC if we could get him for a reasonable price, but as we can’t I’m glad he’s going to United to waste their transfer budget.

06 Jun 2021 10:45:49
Sancho is a better player than Raphina in my eyes. He’s hit double figures as a baby the past few years for both goals and assists. He is going to be a monster. I personally think he should be starting every game for England. The way he glides with the ball and his passing through tight areas are incredible.

06 Jun 2021 10:59:11
Sancho is a year older than Jones. Yet posts on here suggest Jones who bar a handful of games like Spurs and Leipzig was very very average is apparently this great player and Sancho isn’t?

06 Jun 2021 12:23:25
I mean statistically sancho performed much better than raphina ever has since he’s come to Europe in all competitions. Sancho is 21 and has had 3 good seasons with Dortmund whereas raphina is 24 and had an ok season at Leeds and a few average season at sporting Lisbon and Rennes, which let’s face it, are far poorer than the bundesliga, since people are adamant on comparing the quality of the leagues. I don’t see where all the hype comes for raphina. I understand sancho might be overrated but that doesn’t mean he’s not better than raphina, I’ve watched both play a decent number of times and it’s clear sancho is the better player. Of course the disparity in how much each would cost and if that’s worth it is down to opinion and I think they are both over priced, even in today’s market. Raphina would be good back up to the usual front 3, I’m not doubting that at all, but if we are assuming one of these players are to be a replacement for mane or salah, sancho would be my pick out of the two. But I wouldn’t target either as a salah replacement personally.

06 Jun 2021 13:43:36
OP, If we are not in for Sancho, does that not mean that Klopp and his mad guru’s have scouted him long enuff to know he is not what we need nor is not worth the money? Just asking.

Frankly, Sancho is being quoted such fees cos he is English and there is an English “tax” that comes with that as well as extra media hype regardless of his true ability. He is a very talented player but ain’t worth all the money, IMO. As for Raphinha IMO, he is the real deal and would be perfect for us. Not sure Sancho would be.

Premier league defending only seems better because these days 90% of the managers in the league set their teams up with parked buses, some of them 2 buses. Premier league football used to be easily the most exciting league to watch in the world. This season it was mostly play acting, 11 men behind the ball and the ref blowing his whistle every 30-120 seconds. I dread to think when Klopp goes and who will come in. Hopefully it’s more about entertainment than it is setting up for results or not to lose.

06 Jun 2021 14:40:48
Spot on, JK23. I fully agree with your post. In the Bundesliga, they very rarely park the bus except away from home where the lesser teams try not to get ripped by the Bayern’s and Dortmund’s of the world.

In the end, the Bundesliga is pretty wide open in terms of play hence, it seems they cannot defend even tho, there is some truth to that. Whereas in the PL it looks more defensive cos majority of teams apart from the Big 6, Leicester, Brighton and Leeds, are in survival mode hence, the parked buses we are inflicted with for the most part.

06 Jun 2021 14:45:29
Davey I agree, I personally don’t want Sancho but he’s leagues ahead of jones imo.
